Mr. Browne’s closing statement was; “It is not about individuals, it is for the good of the game. Football is the winner.”

This is the most important part Deeks. the act of 1982 establishes the TTFA as the body legally responsible for running football.
The TTFF is a company formed by Oliver Camps and his advisor friend Renraw that enable them to control football for 30 years

Title: Veteran players want TTFF action.

Veteran players want TTFF action.
By Kern De Freitas (Guardian).


GO AFTER JACK

Trinidad and Tobago’s veteran footballers are calling for the T&T Football Federation (TTFF) to take legal action against former CONCACAF president Jack Warner to recover funds generated from T&T’s World Cup 2006 campaign.

The Veteran Footballers Foundation of T&T (VFFOTT), through vice-president Selby Browne, said yesterday that TTFF president Raymond Tim Kee must take action against Warner in the wake of reports by Express investigative reporter Camini Marajh into Warner’s handling of TTFF and LOC Germany 2006 accounts, and try to recover over $100 million still unaccounted for.

“The new president of the TTFF (Tim Kee) and the TTFF must bring legal action against Jack Warner to recover the (missing) funds,” Browne told the Express yesterday.

“The TTFF must call in the fraud squad or DPP as it relates to the actions of Warner. The TTFF, and we in Trinidad, cannot sit here and rely on outside persons to treat with the Jack Warner debacle that we have here in Trinidad. The source of everything started right here in Trinidad football.”

According to Browne, VFFOTT has made several attempts to meet with Tim Kee, but has not been able to secure a meeting.

The veteran footballers have called a “special meeting” for May 11 at Barataria Sports Complex, where they will discuss the “implications” of the recent CONCACAF integrity committee report that accused Warner and ex-CONCACAF general secretary Chuck Blazer of fraud and mismanagement of funds.

Browne believes that with Warner involved, T&T football has experienced a downward slide.

“In 1974, Trinidad and Tobago was qualifying for the number one slot in CONCACAF,” he said. “In 2006 we were qualifying for the 3½ (playoff) spot. So during the tenure of Warner from 1974 to date, T&T football fell at minimum three, four notches in CONCACAF.”

VFFOTT has also stated that the “sole priority” is to return T&T football to its previous “glorious product”.

Browne is also happy that the TTFF looks set to pay the 2006 “Soca Warriors”, who have been embroiled in a legal battle with the local governing body over World Cup bonuses promised them by Warner, since that year.

“We have said years ago that is long outstanding. That should have been done by the TTFF and then (they should have) pursued Warner, who has still not produced his books for the TTFF.”

  Years ago Selby had bought the TV rights for TT football, Jack went and get FIFA to make TT tv rights lump under CONCACAF nad buy the rights for himself from FIFA for 1 DOLLAR.

 Selby sue TTFA and that ent reach no where, he end up losing some money and potentialy a kings ransom to the crook.

 Selby is one of the celebrated QRC old boys and is a true patriot so if them fellas getting involved it could only be good for TT football.

Just keep out Ken Butcher

TTFA gives vets 50 tickets.
T&T Express Reports.


Recognising the sterling contribution to football made by several past players and administrators, the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) made over over 50 tickets available to past players and administrators for last Tuesday’s match against New Zealand at Hasely Crawford Stadium, through the Veteran Footballers Foundation Of Trinidad and Tobago, (VFFOTT).

Vets president Gwenwyn Cust lauded the gesture and said they had been advocating for this for a long time, and was happy the TTFA is making positive steps in the right direction.

“The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association must be heartily congratulated for finally recognising the sterling contribution to football made by several past players and administrators,” Cust said in a release. “Hats off to the due consideration given by (TTFA president) Mr Raymond Tim Kee and (general secretary) Mr Sheldon Phillips as they communicate with VFFOTT.”

After discussions with Tim Kee and Phillips, Cust was given the task of selecting deserving recipients for the complimentary tickets. Cust consulted with Steve David, Lyle Jeffrey, Selris Figaro and Tansley Thompson, all members of VFFOTT’s executive.

Recipients included Shay Seymour and Carlton “Squeakie” Hinds, two of three surviving members of the first National Team to tour England in 1953, the other being Doyle Griffith, who resides abroad.

Squeakie, also dubbed “The Prince of Forwards”, was most present and was in the company of Kenny Akal, another stalwart of the past, who is now wheelchair bound. Other invitees included Gerry Browne, Clayton Morris, Brian Williams, Selwyn Quanvie, Eddie Hart, Osmond Downer and Lennox Sirjuesingh the latter two being outstanding former FIFA referees.

Selwyn Quanvie? I thought he was Henry Quanvie. Unless he had a father, brother or uncle by that name.

No mention of Gally.Was he offered a ticket? Can anyone advise? I hope he was among the first five? In fact he should be given a lifetime ticket to the stadium. Maybe he has one hence the reason his name was not mentioned?

Sometimes i wonder if VFFOTT exists or not,is just that every now and them u see statements in the press.When i returned home last year i was invited to one of their meetings which took place at Paragon Sports Club,i don't know if they had any since,i met a lot of the vets(personal friends) including Eddie Hart,Tim Kee,Selby,Gwenwyn etc etc

At that meeting the agenda seemed to be getting rid of the TTFF administration(JW),revamping the TTFF constitution,06 Warriors getting their money etc there were several contributions made by people on the floor but being my first meeting had nothing to say.

What i came to realize afterwards like everything else it's just talk and no action,i am really surprise and glad to see the TTFF have honored the vets with some tickets,my only hope it's not a one time thing.

What i want to know is what's the role (aims/objectives) of the VFFOTT in T&T Football?

Dont waste your time coops, these locals cant organize they foot from they ass and they always looking for handouts.

This VFFOTT is a bunch of retired men looking for a room to gossip with no punch.

They waiting for some foreigner to come and lead them like farm animals, this is why I will always say, a foreign based will always get more respect because they actually do stuff with less talking.

     I don't know why we like to talk so much,everybody knows all the issues and what should be done in Football but when is time for action people just dissapear,we are our best critique.
