While the ARQ Builders-Lapu Lapu Heroes has been apologetic for the farcical game that transpired in Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup, the Siquijor Mystics did not actually learn their lesson.

According to Games and Amusement Board chairman Baham Mitra, the Mystics actually showed no remorse in their actions.

“‘Yung GAB representatives natin dun kinausap sila, malungkot at humingi ng paumanhin yung mga taga-Lapu Lapu pero yung mga taga-Siquijor, e parang hindi… walang pagsisisi,” he said.

Nonetheless, GAB has banned Siquijor from the VisMin Cup.

Baham issued a stern warning to every pro team not to waste their privilege given to them by the Inter-Agency Task Force.

Ang pinapayagan lang ng IATF ay yung mga professionals for their livelihood tapos biglang ganiyan gagawin nila. Kaya we don’t condone this. Kung may allegations ng game-fixing, lalo na ngayon, masama. Hindi pa na-establish pero yung investigation na umpisahan na. Bukas lahat ng team owners, kakausapin natin,” he said.

“While we believe in self-regulation, mayroon pa rin kaming sariling road. Hindi talaga maganda yung ginawa nila.”
