PBA: Arwind shocked he got F2:
In the middle of the fourth quarter of what would be a San Miguel blowout win, Santos gave Scottie Thompson what seemed like a routine hit, a stern shoulder to the stomach that sent the Ginebra forward to the floor in obvious pain. Scottie was trying to set a down screen for Kevin Ferrer before Santos met him with his shoulder.

Arwind Santos was ejected Sunday from Game 2 of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup against Brgy. Ginebra. He wonders why.

In the middle of the fourth quarter of what would be a San Miguel blowout win, Santos gave Scottie Thompson what seemed like a routine hit, a stern shoulder to the stomach that sent the Ginebra forward to the floor in obvious pain.

Scottie was trying to set a down screen for Kevin Ferrer before Santos met him with his shoulder.

Arwind got a flagrant foul penalty 2 for the move, an automatic ejection.

Santos argues it was an unfair call.

"Ang rules, above the shoulder pwede mag F2 at kapag closed fist," Santos said.

"Tignan niyo naman ginawa ko, tagal ko nang naglalaro," he added.

With San Miguel rolling to a Game 2 win to tie the series, Arwind has shrugged his ejection off.

He will let his higher ups to deal with possible talks to the Commissioner's Office regarding fines.

"Okay lang yun," Santos said.

"Papaubaya ko na sa mga coach ko yun," he added.
