The 83-80 road win of Maccabi Tel Aviv over Hapoel Tel Aviv for the domestic Israeli league was marked by the unprofessional behavior of Greek center Sofoklis Shortsanitis. After the end of the game Big Sofo attacked the stands of the home fans as you can see in this report and video. According to Maccabi Tel Aviv’s sources their player was provoked by racist chants, however this kind of outburst is unacceptable, specially when among the fans there are children, like in this case the four years old son of Hapoel’s coach Erez Edelshtein. Sofo was escorted by his teammates in the locker room, while Hapoel is asking for his banishment from the league until the end of the season.
