Yeah Bakes aka Truetrini aka West Coast..yuh can't take a sabbatical with T&T government and TTFA elections coming up plus WC qualifiers startingMEP and Sam (and some who have messaged me privately here and on FB), thanks for the kind words... after being alerted to some of what was being said, at first I figured I'd just leave it alone, but then I decided to make one last post and just clear the air. I thought me leaving the site woulda make some people happy, but damn, Controversial damn near having ah block party by heself. Just do ah search for the name "Bakes" in the past month and ah sure yuh'll see he name jumping up all over the screen. As should be clear, I am not "banned"... I was suspended for a week and that gave me time to reconsider my membership and activity here on SWO.
I like posting and commenting on the forum, in fact, probably too much... and the truth is that the time and energy I spend here could be better spent. That, and the fact that I think at this point my continued presence on this site has become counter-productive, much of what I say, no matter how straightforward or neutral, will be seen by some thru certain prisms, either in light of my past disagreements with some on here, or misconstrued as apology for the TTFA. Time to move on.
Before doing so I will address one thing briefly, this lie that is being pandered by Controversial that I have attacked people's families online. Nothing could be further from the truth, but ultimately folks can judge for themselves:
Football Supporter: As he had done repeatedly in the past, FS decided to try and 'insult' me by calling me a "sell-out, working for the yankee dollar"... presumably because I (like many posters here, including the forum Administrators) decided to leave TnT for a better opportunity in the US. After the latest comment I reminded him that he left his family in England tom come reinvent himself in the tropics as a football administrator. I didn't say anything that he himself didn't share on the forum, I used his own words to hold a mirror up to him and ask him, "if I'm a sellout for leaving TnT for better opportunities in the US, would it be fair to call you a sellout as well?" People misconstrued the words and the intent behind them, he complained to Flex and I was suspended. I am not mad at Flex, I might disagree with what he did, and the way it was done, but he was put in a tough situation and had to do what he felt he had to do. That's that.
Next is Controversial himself... who has been carrying a grudge for God knows how long. I never attacked his family, no need for me to do so. But as with FS I checked him for things he was saying... reminding him that he's not the person in real life that he's trying to be online...way back in 2008. So this man carrying this old-ass grudge for over 7 years and I guess now he feel is time to try and get even. Whatever yes pardna, keep grinding whatever axe yuh feel yuh have to grind, I moved on long time ago.
I wish the forum and everybody else here well. Who feel that I was ah "online bully" and doh beliong in dey "family", and who I meet and kick it with in person, but now want to distance deyself from me, is no hard feelings, now everybody could move on with dey life
Bakes, you have to be a mad man to make this f00cker Contro run you out.
Man, come back bra.
You is de only man here who does say it like it is.
F00ck all ah them.
You come back man !!!!!
The elephant in the room is the demographics behind both sports... cricket receives significantly more support from Indo-Trinis, the PP government's base. Many upper-level managers at these state-owned entities are themselves Indo-Trinis. For the PP government, it is an emotional and political decision to fund cricket. Football has no such support, not even in spite of Sancho's presumed advocacy. If taxpayer monies are going to jump up then let it jump up for everybody.
Spot on Bakes...I read and interpreted it the same wayLasana? Objective? The man himself state that when reporting the news he has no obligation to be objective... and some of his sycophants happy with that. The bias in his articles are at times less subtle than others, but yuh have to guard against it all the same. For instance:QuotePhillips said he had to speak to Flanders before he could divulge how money was spent on the trip.
I have to have a meeting with the manager to reconcile where and how the money was used so i can give you the breakdown later today, said Phillips.
His use of the word "divulge" (meaning to reveal, disclose, share etc.) implies that Phillips already knows how the money was spent but need to speak with Flanders before he shares that publicly. Like there is some kinda conspiracy. Whereas, reading the actual comment from Phillips, it's clear from the context that he means he wasn't there himself and would have to find out from Flanders how money was spent on what. Also, from the article one cannot tell whether it was only the women who did not get their per diem, or whether everybody was affected. The truth is that no one has received the per diem because the TTFA still hasn't received all the money the MoS promised them. Naturally what money was received was used to take care of necessities first (paying for rooms, meals, transportation etc.) rather than paying players their per diem.
Aside from that, there's an undercurrent to his reporting about Lincoln Phillips... as though he just on some kinda freeco thing. In comments made in response to an earlier article he stated that there were other goalkeeping coaches besides Lincoln, and now making it a point to mention Lincoln's name among those being recommended for a bonus. You'd swear Sheldon Phillips trying to look out fuh he pops... the way Lasana spinning it. Reality is that LP wouldn't be on the staff if Waldrum didn't request for him to be there. Yes him and Lincoln are good friends, but is not like Lincoln is some kinda scrub. With his coaching acumen I'm sure he'd be an asset to any staff anywhere in the world, and it's no stretch to think that he had a hand in Kamika Forbes' outstanding performance throughout the tournament.
Yuh wukking over time dred.
I don't think so..i had read in a couple places that when he resigned the last contract certain things had to happen for him to stay at Liverpool.But for the bite, was Suarez returning to Liverpool after the WC?
I think he would have
Cyah say that I've heard or read anything to the contrary. Certainly, the sentiment at Anfield in June was that he was expected back.
I with Toppa on this.Mandela wasn't brutally murdered though, but ok if you didn't find it in poor taste. No scene (and I'm not being sarcastic).
... none of the original comments identified cause of death as a basis for opposition to the article. And, I don't find cause of death to be material regarding whether to publish the article or not. Emotionally, I get it ... but we're also dealing with information accessible to the public ... regarding public figures.
Moreover, the Express article properly treats the will in the context of Ms. Seetahal's murder, the present status of the investigation, and her public function at the time of her death. To significant degree, the article also reflects her thoughtfulness and humanity.
They could have done all that without detailing exactly who got what and how much. That was just crass. And information that's accessible to the public is different from say, taking the furth step and publishing said information in a widely circulated newspaper.
so which one you or yuh husband interested in? lolWhat kinda jokey list is that?
No cuckolding with BBC?
No dress up?
So educate us ?...
is NOW de hospital workers in liberia choose to go on strike. when the country fighting a full-blown epidemic ?!?!!you expected differently? lol
Socafighter that is trolling.
Lets hear Bakes comments....
You are older than me, and not only that, but you are also a woman. I have no interest in any kind of personal back and forth with you. Don't let Tireasis chain you up into making an ass of yourself in the manner that he has become so proficient at doing.
I am interested in reading all opinions , its how I learn. Age and being a woman should not be part of such a dialogue, I fail to see your point by such a comment .
Tireasis will not influence me , I value opinions sent my way, it helps me see the other side.
I've always felt that a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of
conflicting points of view, he can entertain simultaneously on the same topic.
You seem to have issues , I hope you get help .
you seriously pick apart everything I said word for word? lol...OK
so just cause the man have a different look at things he is a nut job?
you ever take the time to look at things without having a preconceived notion?
It generally saves time to filter out individuals known for having wholly biased and unreliable view points - now of course that doesn't mean they're wrong every time, but this individual routinely rejects science in favour of pro-corporate, pro-Russian interest party lines. The guy believes oil is not created from biological material and denies climate change - he cares not for the truth and has repeatedly shown intellectual dishonesty in his arguments.where you does get your news from?
A number of sources, depending on the topic, preferring individuals with a background and experience that suggests they know what they're talking about. This sentence sounds bitchy but I promise it's not, just the only way to say it on the internet lol. I basically select sources based on whether I think they're 1) qualified (and thus have the knowledge and/or experience to be trustworthy on the matter) and 2) in proportion to their bias (bias is always present in the news, so if possible I prefer rigorous academic journals, but obviously they cannot be as current as news media, so I prefer organisations that have typically allowed their journalists editorial freedom such as The Guardian and The Independent).
The US government and their Middle east allies created ISIS same way they created the Muhajideen back in the 80's.
People bitching bout Obama not doing anything...fact is he can't, he just continuing the plan that Bush started lol
ISIS wasn't created in the same was as the Muhajideen - they received weapons directly from the US and UK during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan (SIRI have an excellent database of arms deals that catalogue these trades). ISIS (ironically, given the meaning of Mujahideen) has a stronger religious tradition imo - the Mujahideen were clearly formed of a resistance to foreign invasion and occupation, whilst ISIS was created from the beginning with the aim of forming an Islamic State in opposition to President Assad. Moreover, they were hostile with competing rebel factions from the start, something that appeared later for the Mujahideen.
On Obama, he's certainly the most conservative Republican president ever imo. Historials will look at his record on drone strikes with disdain I'm sure
its not coincidence that the US has a black president who's past is so murky and has Muslim ties just by his name...that is more than enough to keep the white population agitated.
"Has Muslim ties"? Oh you're a right-wing nut, I should of just not bothered, so impervious to logic you must be to believe all that bollocks. Lemme guess, he's a Kenyan Muslim subverting the Presidency?
yes very good piece of business at that price.I feel Rodgers soothing personality will really get the best out of Balotelli; plus, men like Sterling and Sturridge will make him feel welcomed in the dressing room.
Agreed. Fantastic signing at £16m too... particularly so contrasted against the prices paid for Shane Long and offered for Fabio Borini (£14m each). All that aside I've always loved him as a player and been an unflinching supporter on and off the pitch*. He'll be just fine.
Bait taken in 3...2...1...
Another nutjob, the first line is the funniestso just cause the man have a different look at things he is a nut job?QuoteWilliam Engdahl is an award-winning geopolitical analyst and strategic risk consultant whose internationally best-selling books have been translated into thirteen foreign languages.
I think you automatically continue in your fantasy League from season to season. I'm still in the League for the upcoming season.
Israel doesn't have the military capacity to take on all the Arab states in an offensive war - if America can't take on Iraq successfully how of you feel Israel would fair?
