Masiado kasing respectable ang futbol.

Tignan ninyo ang billiards at'saka ang pamamaril.
Medyo may lufets naman ang Pinoy dun 'di ba? Parang
kapag mas kaduda-duda ang bisyo, mas mabagsik ang Pinoy.

Unless magkaroon siguro tayo ng presidente or sports commissioner na football fanatic, ganyan na lagi.

Imbes na i-promote parang nadi-discourage pa. For example, sa Marikina Sports Center, bawal gamitin yung pitch kahit 2 lang kayo, kelangan magbayad ng P 500/hour.

Kung gusto mong ng live telecast ng World Cup, bayad ka ng P 6K sa Sky or P 3K sa Dream :shocked:.

correct fafa! in football,the grassroots development is better in visayas and mindanao than luzon,sadly.but what is needed is money and sponsors for countrywide regular tournaments.this can be done.the talk amongst football clubs here in manila is there should be a semi-pro league in 2 years time.hopefully!

cycling: siguro same as above na rin.just my 2 cents.but surely,there are many,many undiscovered talents out there.Mt. Everest nga kaya eh!:beer:

Didn't you have a controversial boys baseball team that won the Little League World Series? :supergrin:

that was a no-no, really embarassing

makoy,
I agree with the football thing. I always thought that it is really possible that a youth from one of our provinces could make it big as a professional in europe like so many of the brazilians. what if a kid in its teens could make it as even as a bench player and later develope in europe,diba big change sa buhay nya yun.

st. matthew
06-04-2006, 21:48
oo, kaya dapat the government should train our youths into very good athletes para maidagdag sa mga workers natin abroad,mas malaki pa kikitahin nila, leading to more remittances and more money for our not so good politicians to spend :) plus sisikat ang Pilipino:cool:

mtho
06-04-2006, 22:55
yup,look at Pacquiao. Just imagine Filipinos playing professionals in europe and maybe someone making it as big as beckham or ronaldo. eh ang popularity ng football worldwide so just think of the opportunity the kid would have worldwide.

and i'm sure there will be Filipino following everywhere even though they're not football fans

i'll still keep praying though...that us Filipinos will be part of these spectacular sport :)

In my elementary days. I always dreamed of flying off to Scandinavia where the Gothia and Helsinki cups were held. My fellow players from Colegio San Agustin, De La Salle Zobel, and Ateneo always finished respectively. Even winning those tournaments a couple of times. Problem was, there was no support from the government whatsoever. Their parents shelled out for the trips. Lots of talented players could not make it because they couldn't afford the trip. Those times that they won (forgot which years; the trophies are still in the CSA PhysEd Department) were the only times the government paid them any mind.

Seldom do players actually pursue the sport after college as there aren't any pro leagues to go to unlike other sports. The semi-pro league organized in the mid-90's drowned out due to poor crowd attendance mainly due to lack of promotion and so so sponsorship.

Hope the planned semi-pro league will not falter out this time. :cool:

Let's forget about govt support
Una , they dont have the money , and pangalawa, if they do , sobra nila gulo ( look at BAP/POC )
Private support ang kailngan, preferably corporate

Sa basketball kasi talaga namulat tayong mga pinoy. Half courts in almost every corner of the neighborhood...

As compared to other countries, football is not limited to the soccer fields. I've been to Egypt and got to play with some teens under a flyover on a cement "court" the size of a full basketball court. Pwede naman pala kahit ganun lang kaliit / simple yung laruan.

i have a friend na dating kasama ni bass one sa pagcor who once was the team captain of RP football team in his yioubger years. and lagi nya sinasabi sa akin kulang nga daw sa budget tapos yung ibang officials kasama pa yung mga mrs nila sa mga overseas na laban.

mas madali kasing mag tayo ng half court dito rather than a football field.
