Sagesse – Sporting 2002 finale fight: The recent fights we’ve re witnessing in Lebanese Basketball have been happening for years
To be honest, I didn’t follow up closely what happened during the Champville and Sagesse game few days back but from what I’ve read, Sagesse brought more fans that it was allowed to, a lot of rules got violated, the whole game was a total mess and should not have taken place. Both teams got penalized, including Champville’s Coach Ghassan Sarkis and as a result of this fight, Champville’s president resigned from the federation.
I’ve repeated on several occasions the real cause behind these problems in the Lebanese Basketball League and obviously no one wants to listen but I have a question to ask here:
– Who’s the genius that decided to limit the number of Sagesse players and fans combined to 38 in an away game? Are you seriously asking a team as popular as Sagesse to restrict its number of fans to 10 or 15? What sort of logic is that?
– سنداً لاحكام المادة 210 التي تجيز للجنة الادارية اتخاذ اي عقوبة تراها مناسبة ، حيث ان نادي الحكمة خالف تعاميم الاتحاد وتجاوز عدد جمهوره 400 شخص في المباراة المذكورة بالرغم من ان العدد المحدد هو 38 بما فيهم اللاعبين والجمهور مما خلق جواً من البلبلة والفوضى وخسّر أفضلية جمهور للنادي المضيف، قرّرت اللجنة الادارية توقيف جمهور نادي الحكمة في اول مباراتين على ارضه.
This is the new rule applied in the lebanese league. For any game played, the number of the fans ( for the away team ) should not exceed 40. In the game between sagesse and champville ( which I have watched from the very beginning ) . the sagesse fans were almost 200 and more. ( Riyadeh Fan ) .
I know but that’s a stupid rule to say the least. Champville’s stadium could fit up to 2000-3000 fans. Why restrict Sagesse to 40?
the same rule applied to Champville when they were playing at Sagesse’s Home court
I know and it’s wrong 🙂
best way to kill a game is by killing its fan base!
soon Basket will become worst that Foot in this glorious country of ours!
Im with you guys ! 🙂 . I say both teams should have fans inside the court ! its a stupid rule ..in yesterday game ( sagesse amchit ) sagesse fans were not allowed to watch the game from inside ( its a 2 match ban ).. they were sitting outside andwatching it on a big screen ..the game was boring though ( with no supporters inside , ur somehow killing the game ).
