According to Wikipedia, The sin bin (sometimes called the penalty box, bad box, or simply bin) is the area in ice hockey, rugby league, rugby union and some other sports where a player sits to serve the time of a given penalty, for an offense not severe enough to merit outright expulsion from the contest. Teams are generally not allowed to replace players who have been sent to the penalty box.
A player who has committed a foul can be sent to sit for a specified period.
The Tulfo brothers, Ben, Erwin and Raffy has recently been sent to the Sin Bin.
Perhaps almost everyone who followed the Thrilla in NAIA (the brawl at NAIA Terminal 3 among broadcast journalist Mon Tulfo versus showbiz couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto plus their friends) would easily understand why they’ve been suspended to host their T3 show on TV5.
However, how come the Kapatid station only gave them a 3-day suspension (May 9 to 11, 2012) That’s only from Wednesday to Friday….and to make it more amusing is, their eldest brother Mon was asked to replace them as host temporarily while they’re suspended. Mon would be one of the temporary host of T3 along with two other network hosts, Martin Andanar and resident legal commentator Atty. Mel Sta. Maria.
Would the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) be giving them a longer suspension after they’ve conducted their own investigation of the Tulfo brothers Live television threats against Raymond, Claudine and company, or is MTRCB going to cancel their T3 show permanently?
Is Raymart finally going to send her wife Claudine to the sin bin for her apparent misconduct while she maltreated the Cebu Pacific staff – the root of all these shocking yet humorous behavior of these so called “idols” of Philippine showbiz. Remember that everything happened while infront of their own children.
Should they be filing child abuse cases against Mon Tulfo, or should they file a case against themselves instead.
Is the Cebu Pacific management also sending some of their staff to the sin bin as well? It was very obvious that they also have a lot of shortcomings or irregularities here.
– Delayed flights
– Offloaded baggage with no knowledge of the owners
– Defective CCTVs or surveillance cameras
– Poorly trained security guards
I pity the Cebu Pacific staff, including the security guards, who were berated by the former “Marina” star (malansa) and his hubbie “Bantatay” (may rabies).
Apparently, the couple had nothing good to say about the Cebu Pacific staff, and likewise, the Cebu Pacific staff already made a written statement that the couple indeed started a commotion which caught the attention of many people including the journalistic instincts of Mon Tulfo.
Mon Tulfo’s fault is that he was all alone, that’s why they were able to gang up on him…
Much like what happened to a young star named Albie Casino, who was said to have been beaten up by friends of his former girlfriend and mother of his child, “Agua Bendita”…or was it “Agua Oxinada”? star Andi Eigenmann.
Should Andi’s mother, Jaclyn Jose…or her father Mark Gil also send her to the sin bin for letting her friends beat the crap out of her former lover?
It seems everyone is beating each other up recently, everybody paid little attention to the Mayweather-Cotto fight. Whoa !…Mayweather won?…Really?
Not surprisingly coz most of us would rather watch Mayweather versus our own Congressman-boxer-religious-billionaire playboy philanthropist Manny Pacquiao …or was I describing Tony Stark aka Iron Man?
When most of the people anticipated the showing of The Avengers more than the resumption of the Chief Justice Impeachment Trial, we know for a fact that we Filipinos are tired of the many unresolved nowhere-going issues, and would rather watch our action superheroes really accomplish something blatantly fast and furious to defeat their foes.
Do we really ever going to see any closure to these issues, or is the wheel of justice really a flat tire?
Recently, my favorite forum thread that had the Tulfo-Santiago-Barretto fight as its topic was sent also to the Sin Bin. Moderators just suddenly removed the thread forum with no warning….Well, in fairness there was a warning…but they also were asking us to choose whether to just ban the members who were “pasaway” r just lock the thread. Instead they totally ripped it off the face of the website forums.
When another member tried to create a similar thread forum, and many complained about the missing one, the moderator finally left a final note, and then locked the thread this time, and asking everyone to just join a different site or forum having the same topic.
It’s like saying, “if you’re not going to follow our rules, better scram and join a different forum group!…You’re not welcome here! Scram, beat it, shoo!!!”
Wow! The powers of the Forum Moderator – God mode!
But going back to the sin bin – Was Mon Tulfo sincere when he said the reactions or statements of his brothers on national TV threatening the showbiz couple were uncalled for?
I think Erwin and Raffy already apologized for their behavior, but I haven’t heard of any news about Ben’s apology – if there was one.
Should Mon send his brothers to the sin bin for their actions non-befitting of respected broadcast journalist? – or do they really deserve respect since all their shows never was without any curse or threat to others. It’s but “automatic” and “expected” that these “tough” guys should show their “macho” image vehemently.
Or should Mon send himself to the sin bin for turning a”complaint ruckus” into sort of a “fisticuffs” between him and the showbiz couple (don’t forget the guy in pink -Eduardo Atilano is his name)..
Hhmmm…come to think of it, how come the T3 brothers did’nt threatened this Atilano guy?…or they haven’t got his identity yet when they made the “Live on National TV” threats…
At leasts, Mon invited everyone for some coffee….but not in Starbucks, I suppose. He did say it should have a big space, no video cameras, no other people aside from those involved in the original brawl.
Oh, yeah I would like to ask, who would serve the coffee if there are no other people around…perhaps 3 in 1 coffee mix?…or 3 against 1..the Three Tulfo brothers against Raymart..
Raymart probably has called already the help of his brothers Rowell and Randy, and Claudine probably already tweeted Gretchen and Marjorie….or do they need to coz it’s all over the news?
I can’t wait for the “di pa tapos ang laban” next episodes. ..after all, this was better than the Pacquiao fights because it was star-studded!
