Two Pakistan hockey players banned, another warned for obscene gestures after game against India

Sportspersons and fans have a symbiotic relationship. Both sides gain a lot from the other, and therefore both sides must respect each other.

What the Pakistani hockey players did after their win against India goes against the spirit of the game and sets a bad example of celebrity behavior towards the fans. A crowd will sometimes cheer the players and at other times jeer the players. Every crowd has its favorite team. That does not mean that the crowd can be insulted.
