Sertac Komsuoglu, Fenerbahce’s Board Member and responsible for the basketball department of the club, issued a statement after his team’s loss to Anadolu Efes in Game 2 of the Turkish BSL League Finals.

Komsuoglu expressed his complaints with the level of officiating and the Federation’s selection of referees and said that if the situation continues like that, the club would rather focus its attention to EuroLeague instead of BSL. Here’s a part of the statement:

“Our players were victimized here today. The things that called against our players were not called when the other side in same occasions. After that, it came to this. I will also say this: For how many minutes did the game stop? 5-10 minutes. This is basketball. If you’re going to eject them, you don’t need to wait 10 minutes. There aren’t any movies being played here instead of games. We don’t watch movies on Netflix. For 10 minutes, we looked at what will happen, what is going on. I wish the best. See you on Monday, but if it will continue like this, we’d rather invest in EuroLeague, Europe accordingly. As Tivibu, you can broadcast nice and entertaining matches among yourselves here.”

With 3:27 left in the match and after a basket by Chris Singleton for the 80 – 71, the Efes forward and Marko Guduric exchanged some words and a small scuffle with Melih Mahmutoglu began. Singleton, four Fenerbahce players and three Fenerbahce staff members were ejected.
