At least Guy appologized realizing his mistake , and for that you have to give him a credit , but look at totally stupid reaction of Maccabi TLV management
4. Guy Pnini and his insults
Toledano Jean-Pierre ,   Israel   (12.04.12)
Not only his club but also the IBA (Israeli Basket Association) has to give a severe punishment to Guy Pnini. In team sport leagues it's well known that the players or trainers of one team try to intimidate their opponents: insults, racism, anti-Semitism,… The same problem exists among the rival supporters. But to stop that trend - like you see in Europe the rise of anti-Semitic, racist,… supporter choirs - you must give very severe punishments to the offenders, also here, in Israel. Maybe, also a severe doping control can help to solve that problem. Clean sportsmen behave better or react less aggressive.
5. Sounds like a sincere apology. Hard for an Israeli to make.

In my eyes, he is redeemed, but I am sure he needs to prove himself to the coach and teammates over time. I wish him luck, and to Maccabi many basketball victories in international games.
6. Slurs on the sports field.

If I was the PM I would ban all these sissie sports-basketball and soccer included and make RUGBY compulsory at schools.It will teach our youth a bit of spormanship and honour.

....Cricket would be an "educational" experience for uncouth, unsportsmanlike Israelis
