MANILA--The PBA did not sit well with Rain Or Shine coach Yeng Guiao's latest remarks against the referees of the team's match against Alaska on Saturday night.

The league announced that Guiao was slapped with a PHP20 thousand fine for his choice words to the officials during the third quarter of the game the Elasto Painters eventually won.


The harsh comments stemmed from fouls by Raymond Almazan on LaDontae Henson, which Guiao thought should have not been called at all.

Guiao was charged with technical fouls for the said action and was sent off, but the fiery coach still had some parting shots with the referees with him being heard shouting, "Wala nang nanonood sa atin, ref!" pertaining to the low crowd turnout so far this season.
