FEU’s Romeo ‘suspended indefinitely’, says coach

MANILA, Philippines – In an effort to teach Terrence Romeo the “value of humility,” Far Eastern University has decided to suspend the explosive guard “indefinitely.”

Romeo was only in street clothes in the Tamaraws’ 74-81 setback to St. Benilde on Friday in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup, but joined the team on the bench and in the dugout.

When asked why Romeo did not suit up, Tamaraws’ head coach Nash Racela told reporters that, “he’s on indefinite suspension for something that he did previously.”

Racela said they decided upon the suspension after FEU’s game versus San Beda in the pre-season tournament last week, where Romeo came late for the game.

“It was something after that,” said Racela, who did not elaborate. “It’s something that we see as correctible.”

“We do things to teach the players. We’re all after their good. We’re just teaching him the value of humility,” he also said.

The soft-spoken Tamaraws’ mentor cleared, though, that the sanction had nothing to do with Romeo’s performance with Big Chill, which ousted Fruitas — FEU’s team in the PBA D-League — last Thursday in the quarterfinals.

But Racela hinted that Romeo might be back in action sooner, than later.

“I was thinking it might be long but with the way things developed the past 2-3 days, the way I see it, it’s going to be short. And the way I see it, it seems there’s an effort on his part to change,” said Racela.

The Tamaraws spent more than hour after the game in the locker room, where they took the chance to deal with their differences.

“With the loss, it opened things for the team because I hear a lot of things from them, their relationship with each other. Now it’s out in the open. But we’re very positive,” said Racela.

    Coach Nash is still bitter because of Romeo’s performance against Fruitas.

      Hindi naman siguro kukuha ang FEU ng Coach dahil sa pakiusap. Babaw naman nun. Magaling naman na coach si Nash.

    Like they say, there’s no “I” in the word “Team”.

  • ting0508

    FEU is better off if they get rid of Romeo. He has a superstar mentality but he has not yet reached that level and he cannot inspire his teammates to play one step hogher. In short he is selfish and in local lingo buaya!
