Edwards played and was close to The Dictator, so hopefully he is not under the influence of the dictator. Hadad seemed very happy, which has me uneasy because that could signal another puppet.

It is a wait and see approach, if he keeps Eve, then you know who he is working for and who controls him..

I wouldn't be proud to announce any member of the Williams family as a part of my slate..

Any association to the "Dictator" means corruption... The problem with these interviews is they never probe and put them in uncomfortable situations to answer.

They are prime for selling out, Colm straight up said that finance was his main reason for joining under Wharfe... That means FIFA is ready to pay and control under Wharfe. It has nothing to do with management bc the investment from the private and govt sector is non existent

@gawd

Great convo brother, I'm enjoying talking about our history. We need more of these conversations for everyone to know our contributions to world history.

Not a lot of Universities have an in depth program like University of Toronto and York University, sadly. Our professors were great, PHDs/Doctorates etc with a vast knowledge of Africa and the Caribbean. It wasn't bird courses, the courses were hard and required serious work and research. You had to actually love being there and learning about our history.

I beg to differ brother, Calypso's decline was deliberate and due to Rocksteady's rise with Taitt. Had Taitt not re invented ska and added those calypso elements, Reggae would not have flourished. The rise of "black power" and independence movement in TT and push to become a republic created the right environment for a blacklist. A music doesn't just fade away like that, there is a reason for it, because artists in TT were constantly creating. Lancelot Layne and many others continued to re cerate but guess what?

We didn't have a record label in Trinidad and Tobago. Why is that? Calypso sells one million and continues to bloom in Hollywood movies etc but no label? Calypso also disappeared from the stations in the US as well after independence. The rise of reggae was orchestrated and Calypso had to fall on it's sword to enable the rise of reggae, which was basically an offshoot of calypso and it's root. If you are disloyal to the crown, you can take a back seat... Calypso took that backseat and continues to take that backseat with soca.

They had to blacklist calypso for reggae to rise and TT was persona non grata so it was inevitable.

JA separating their identity was largely due to their tie to the crown, their head of state being the Queen. TT was always about unity, which was another reason we became public enemy #1. A united West Indies means the eventual elimination of neo colonialism and TT spearheading that was a threat...

Our cultural Carnivals bring in billions to the city, they have no obligations to us. They allow us to celebrate our culture and in return they make money and profess they support diversity and inclusiveness. They know they control the radio and media, they control what you hear on Iheart radio and what charts on Billboard magazine. They control who performs at the Grammys and the TT population is smaller than most in a viral world. So our Carnival is not a threat to the hegemony they hold on world music and what is a Top 40 or Billboard hit.

So you can have your Carnival because we benefit more than you and your culture, with no strings attached. You get your jump up, we get our money and we still don't need to play your music on the radio, we can just steal your music and repackage it and have no consequences.

You ever notice that even though our Carnivals bring in billions annually to these cities, the music never gets played on mainstream radio? You would think that a festival and music that brings in more money than reggae or EDM etc and also was the first to sell one million, programmers for radio stations would push to play the music. Even if it was pay for play, they still would resist, despite them now playing afro beat and reggaetone, carbon copies of our music.

Much love brother, blessings for the easter....

@deeks

just because PNM doesn't want to rebuild and really invoke change in EDR means we are poor.

There is power and money in crime, control in crime... How do you control a nation and keep them in fear? CRIME... You flock to the govt of the day, to be the savior they will never be...

Ask yourself why you can walk a few blocks and the property value changes almost right across the street? The government and our nation has created that disparity in value...

There's so many things I know personally that will shock you but the two parties don't want enlightenment, they want control

@deeks

lack of talent? no brother, lack of coaching and self control and governance over our football...

How can we lack talent, when we are not even selecting our best talent because Eve is controlled?

please brother, we have too much talent to choose from and we are not even doing that bc of who is in charge, FIFA..

@deeks

brother it's a wholistic approach to sabotage and neo colonial tactics of suppression of the Caribbean as a region. It is historical and continuous, no bewilderment there, just facts and historically that has been our story in the world.

We are used as votes, beating teams like Argentina and the likes of Germany are out of this world to many because we have never had a fair chance to win or compete. Wallace entered the frame and was beaten down and the NC installed, Hart was removed and undermined. The list goes on, it is not our fault in many cases because we cannot overpower FIFA.

For instance, if Wharfe is not elected, and an outlier is the new President and does not have the blessings of FIFA, we are back to the NC. If they even fire Eve, it may spell our nation being back under the NC, because that is a coach chosen by FIFA and paid by FIFA. This is not delusion and not because of our lack of talent. We have too much talent and they are not chosen.

We are currently not even allowed to choose our best talent or youth talent. The government also plays a big role in this sabotage and control, they could change the rule of nationality to boost our sport and football but have not budged. They are too busy stealing money from our nation...

The problem is not WE, but them and abroad. Check the dates of when sponsorship came into world football under Havelange, you will see when real revenues started to enter FIFA. Once that happened, TT and other nations of color had to take a back seat.

You've never asked yourself the question, why CFU isn't allocated two WC spots but has the second highest vote count in FIFA? We are the swing vote and control who becomes President but have no WC spots?????

Think about what I said above, it is time our people wake up to reality...

It got worse with Jack undermining England and the US for the WC bids. Once again it goes back to FIFA's original make up, which was control of world football after independence of Caribbean and African nations with Sir Rous. That is until Joao Havelange decided to use the other nations like Africa and the Caribbean and played that masterstroke to gain power, which was eventually done by Sepp, under the tutelage of Havelange.

They never intended to have Caribbean and African nations dominate world football, they wanted stooges and hatchet men that are inherently corrupt to maintain their supremacy and get them the votes needed to secure the Presidency and ultimately control. Hence, the Caribbean is still the swing vote for the FIFA Presidency.

JW saw the opportunity to make that money and become the de facto "King of the Caribbean" via his cohorts in the other islands. A guaranteed revenue stream but JW did a lot of good also but he was under the gun. Meaning, he would still be beholden to the white supremacist that control world football.

T&T despite it's talent would never be a regional footballing power because TV rights, gambling, sponsorships and politics trump "talent". As a nation of color we are there to make up numbers and give the illusion of freedom and democracy, aka fairness. However, our own government was also colluding and contributed to the decline and deterioration of our football, as it is written to be this way. None of the higher ups want to see T&T dominating bigger teams like the US, Mexico etc, so you keep the football in problems, lack of funding and development, with little government cooperation and support. It is by design and JW was just a puppet in that play where now he has no choice but to save his skin because he decided to over extend his power and reach.

In order to maintain the balance in the region where teams from the African diaspora are not a "threat" they have to ensure coaches like Eve, tow the line. In response to Gawd, Eve is controlled, he is paid by FIFA, who do you think he answers to? Do you think he will forfeit this opportunity given to him by what Hadad calls the "Vatican" of world football? No, he will not ruin that opportunity, so in order to maintain the status quo, he tows the line. So it is not Eve's decision to sabotage, it is his superiors giving orders.

In comes Wharfe, another puppet who will as he said, continue where the NC left off, Hadad did his job of effectively crippling our football and removing any semblance of democracy. Now Wharfe will continue to tow the line for his imperial masters and any early exit for Eve, may not be in the cards ever...

So in summary brother, to answer your question, the reason for sabotage of our football, was written before JW, continued with JW and is after JW as well. It is more than just - "Peter, paying for Paul".... It is the only way to stop talented teams like T&T from dominating and creating problems for other bigger nations that are considered more valuable to the cause...

@maxg

You are sitting and watching FIFA pay our coach, pay for our TTPFL, control the NC and now they have a man who is beholden and paid by FIFA running for President of TTFA and you are doubting we are not controlled?

Our nation is rich but yet our governments are puppets and don't intend to invest in it's people because they are also controlled...

Wake up Maxg, you're smarter than that... Do you understand how neo colonialism works?

If you really think we have no talent and Eve is a godsend and our players are rubbish, stop watching our football and posting..

Lasana spelt it out for everyone also, but no one wants to listen to facts and reason, just ole talk...

We are controlled, just like they had to control West Indies selectors and cricket... Too talented and too much betting, politics and money involved for a small talented island or islands in the case of the WI to ruin anything for the bigger nations.

Sometimes I feel some Trinis just blind and not watching how geopolitics works or how corrupt sport is...

His formation, selection and strategy are deliberate and decided by his superiors...

People continue to ignore that TT football is controlled

You can't pin anything on him because it is hard to pin sabotage on someone with tactics but if those tactics are on purpose, like parking the bus for a draw in a must win game, explains itself...

I actually have a minor from University of Toronto in Caribbean and African history & politics. I did almost a year long project on the history of Caribbean music, with a focus on calypso, pan, lavway and soca...

Nerlain Taitt was brought to Jamaica by Byron Lee, he kept him there and prevented him from leaving by constantly working him in the studio, where Taitt was the session arranger and musical director of Studio One. Where The Wailers, Bob and Tosh etc came out of. He created rocksteady by implementing the bassline and guitar strumming from Calypso, with adding the pan bass to the ska. He also slowed it down, the ska was too fast. In a famous interview with Bob, they asked, where does this all come from, Bob responded "Calypso". Sir Chris Blackwell at the time started Island Records in 1958 during the "Golden Era of Calypso" with Harry Belafonte as the poster boy for RCA with the album "Calypso" which was released in 1956.

Harry was chosen because he was a redman and the preferred image to the darker skin Trinbago calypsonians who wrote most of his music. After independence of T&T, the crown chose Sir Blackwell and the newly formed Reggae music, which was created in part by Nerlain Taitt as their new commercial music, as Jamaica was still beholden to the crown and controlled by a loyalist, Sir Blackwell, a Sephardic Jew.

The anti-colonial sentiment and elimination of the "Head of State" created the blacklisting of calypso going forward from the 70s until now. Hence, the stealing of our music and it being rebranded as reggae, reggaetone, now afro beat and later Rap. Calypso was also never added to the RIAA as a category at the Grammys and Harry Belafonte was never honored for being the first artist to sell 1 million albums in any musical genre in the world, with "Calypso".

Brother Resistance and I had a long chat before his death many years ago in Trinidad. I was supposed to do a documentary on him and "Extempo" and "Rapso". He spoke about the shutting down of Trinidad's claim on Rap music and also the closing of doors of our music on US radio, which was deliberate and due to our revolutionaries and independence.

Further to this, calypso has been stricken from mainstream success at the highest levels of music. This was also evident with Arrow's "hot, hot, hot" and many others that were reproduced and rebranded pop, as opposed to soca and calypso.

I would go into further detail here but it is long and will take some time to write tbh...

In short, I can attest that T&T's lack of musical success with soca and calypso is attributed to our revolutionary spirit and independence, in comparison, Jamaican music flourised under the crown and continues to as opposed to us from Trinidad and Tobago, this is facts and not conspiracy...

There is privileges with this tbh and we have seen it in the music. T&T had calypso fall off not too long after independence and becoming a republic.

This extends to football also, T&T has been on the blacklist for a while. To some it seems far fetched but it is reality with certain disciplines. It is deeper than you think brother. It isn't a wild conspiracy theory as you think it to be...

Eve will fall on the sword, the sell out has been determined... The writing is on the wall with Eve's selections

Not to mention Canada has a friendly fixed for Holland right after, with the friendlies and money made...

@marcus868

Ofc Eve will park the bus and absorb pressure. TT is not good at that style of play, we are a naturally attacking team, that eases pressure off the players.

Eve knows this, this team is deliberate, it is to ensure Canada wins and TT does not advance. Eve is paid to fool us and play a stooge to the powers that be.

Both of you have great analysis in regards to the line up but you miss the point of what is really going...

Wharfe will win the election, he will not resign from the TTPFL and will be President of the TTFA. He has hired "The Dictator's" daughter (David John Williams) the most corrupt man in local football. They will maintain the status quo as instructed by FIFA... Who pays the TTFA and TTPFL and ultimately controls TT football.

Eve will not bite the hand that feeds him, he has sold out our country, he's a hired mercenary.

HE WILL NOT SELECT THE BEST PLAYERS TO PLAY FOR TT...

This will ensure TT football is kept down and under control. Nobody, including FIFA, the top nations in CONCACAF and the betting Lords of football gambling want surprises with a small twin island of black people. This is neo colonialism gentlemen...

@lucky

Actually FIFA with the NC has controlled our football for the last while, they have chosen the coach, which was Eve and rejected changes to the constitution.

Currently, FIFA is also funding the TTPFL and their Head (Wharfe) is now in the running to continue their rule. They have rigged the elections in their favour of the TTPFL votes, amount to over 60%. Independents have now been squeezed out, the other candidate in the election doesn't stand a chance.

So yes, FIFA controls our football, it is not under the control of the people or independent private financiers.

So don't expect great friendlies or matches to benefit our football.

27
The fact that Wharfe has brought on "The Dictator's" daughter in his slate, is a clear indicator they will be controlled and corruption will be rampant...


28
Wharfe will win and if he doesn't win and Edwards tries to progress or make changes for the betterment of TT football, the NC will be back in charge...

They might even be back if he tries to fire Eve...
