PBA games getting physical, not violent, says GAB

[ Source: ABS CBN News ] - February 06, 2013

MANILA, Philippines – Officials of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and the Games and Amusement Board (GAB) denied that PBA games in the country are becoming violent.

The officials were present during a Senate games and amusement committee hearing on Tuesday, which was prompted by sports analysts' observations that PBA games are getting "rough and dirty" nowadays.

GAB chairman Ramon Guanzon said there's nothing wrong with players being rough because it's part of the game.

He noted, however, that there's a fine line between roughness and being dirty in playing.

"When you are a dirty player, you try to hurt deliberately," Guanzon told the committee. "I don't think roughness can be prohibited, but dirty play should be prohibited."
