MACAU --- Former national team head coach Yeng Guiao feels that the sanction received by the Philippines for the Gilas-Boomers brawl is relatively fair.

On Thursday, FIBA suspended 10 players from Gilas with the longest being six games. FIBA also suspended head coach Chot Reyes for one game and coach Jong Uichico for three games.

Guiao, who coached the Philippines in 2009, thinks that's pretty much okay and the national team should just accept the penalty to continue the moving on process.

"Fair na sakin yun," coach Yeng said on the FIBA sanction.

"I thought they will be suspended for a few more games than what they got. Sa akin okay na yun, tiisin na lang natin and let's move on and let's forget about it," he added.

Guiao has other things to deal with though as his NLEX crew advanced to the semifinals of the Supre 8 tournament here.

The Road Warriors will play the next round on Saturday at the Macao East Asian Games Dome.
