“Buong puso po akong humihingi ng kapatawaran sa lahat ng Pilipino, mga kabataan, at sa mga ibang lahi na sumusuporta sa Gilas,” Tereence Romeo said.

“Taos puso rin akong humihingi ng pasensya sa lahat ng Australians at sa mga players nila. Sana po after natin mailabas yung mga saloobin natin, mag move on na tayong lahat at mag-hari po ang kapatawaran at pagma-mahalan sa puso nating lahat.”

He added that he and his Gilas Pilipinas teammates will work harder to gain the trust and respect of their Filipino fans.

For his part, Marc Pingris said he had no intention of disrespecting anyone with the selfie he took but acknowledged that the timing was inappropriate. (I still think, though, that he has nothing to apologize for.)
