"he TTFA executive misrepresented the extent of what needed to be remediated, the relevance of it taking place during a situation of de facto emergency and the Arima Velodrome project (described by Marcelle as "dotish"). The caller entered with grace but departed bruised."

Ah was afraid this project would be presented as an argument to bite them in the ass. Don't even get why they got involved in that discussion.
Definitely a huge mistake on their part. Wondering if somebody thought the could get something new in the East. Timing sucked.

I really don't get this New Project. Why not work with, finish, complete what y'all have, with whatever finance that can be raised. We go just go out and build another structure. We don't have enough structures just sitting doing nothing. Especially at this time when there is nothing, and I mean nothing.    :frustrated: ???

Is a make wuk to move funds or what.  Lawd..This is another Tarouba elephant or Arima Tigers fiasco.

We playing Sim City, click ah mouse and poof, building going up.   :bs:
This is nonsensical to be talking about now, given the current world and FIFA situation.

Of the 12 step-down facilities, Deyalsingh said only six were being used, with the Augustus Long Hospital in Pointe-a-Pierre, the Arima Hospital, the National Academy of the Performing Arts and the Debe UWI campus still unoccupied.

https://newsday.co.tt/2020/04/22/deyalsingh-suspected-case-at-step-down-facility/

https://newsday.co.tt/2020/04/23/step-down-facilities-zoned-for-nurses-patients/

I don’t even know what to make of the second link , with the rest and not all step down centres.

Again, especially when there were and still is, staffed wards and hospitals available. Government obviously spending extra to keep ppl healthy. Even where unnecessarily so. Bet some of the extra spending has some known and dependable (wink) connects.

65
Well, that was updated and repaired real quick. And as I said, to have meals, and extra maintenance as well as health and monitor staffing provided, whereas the Government already had places ready, staffed and logistically functional. I do not have confidence in anybody at this point. Thus since I can't get what is the truth nor inspect myself, I will now quietly and silently observe from the sidelines.

"we all know the reason why the government is meeting with Robert hadad, it’s because they need the use of the HOF for the covid 19  step down facility, other than that they and FIFA have no business together."


In another post I attempted to explain why the HoF as displayed was not needed as part of the Covid 19 response in the very near future.
Secondly, if Hadad and Government have to meet concerning it's use, that would be a meeting with the Ministry of Health, and/or Ministry of National Security and Ministry of Works and other related officers (Regional corporation, Safety Inspectors,etc). There is absolutely no reason for the MSYA to be meeting with anybody concerning Covid19 at this time. Again, conclude what you may, but make sure you have facts, at least as much info as you can get.

add: https://www.facebook.com/tttliveonline/videos/344597143166976/

67
So all of the above to ask
Why do they even consider the HoF, and how/with whom will they staff it, and what equipment would be required ?
 I think that offer may have been an attempt to  deflate the argument of the Executive by showing the place is functionally sound. It's might sound like a conspiracy theory, but given the political backstabbing and crookedness demonstrated throughout all aspects of this saga, at all levels of administration, it's not the last conclusions to be drawn. The government had to investigate the offer, but shouldn't they have first and immediately investigate where their/our portion of money went, when Wallace and company said, the place was unusable due to local infractions ? Wasn't Shamfa toured during the build to see the progress, didn't no one tour after and confirm it clearance ?
Questions, questions. Don't know anything for sure.

68
So wait. All the things wrong with the place and all that is lacking. You can place the weakest and most susceptible to death at this moment in the place. On top of the ppl to care for them . Not only the government can’t be serious to even consider this. As announced, We just lost our case against FiFa.
Nah, can’t be true, haven’t seen this. Hope is not published.

Add: Well that’s it. Now, somebody - most likely the government if actual use of that establishment- gon get sue on top of everything and Case blown up.

Was the executive lying about the dangers of the place?
FYI fifa offered the government the use of the facility mate, probably hadad took the initiative and offered and they accepted. on the news it states that the government plans to bring the place up to code and insuring it before occupying the hotel, so relax with the suppositions.


Thanks. Didn't realize more facilities were required, and the government was willing or had the funds to invest in more than those existing. Given that we at present have 114 known and closely monitored cases and given the fact of such reports as this link. I guess it always best to be prepared for a sudden increase of a couple hundred.
add: nb: The TT government has been quite stringent in their response and results and recovered cases reflect such.

Meanwhile in Mtl (Hardest hit Cdn city). Many various foreigners (travellers) in addition to early spring break.
Provincial government has been just as stringent.
4Million pop., aprox.  7760 cases (.0018% positive)
                 Number of hospitalizations in province (8.9 Million pop.)
Number of regular hospitalizations: 869
Number in intensive care: 207
Total number of hospitalizations: 1 076

Deaths :391


I estimate, a TT would need a floating figure of ~145 beds given a similar trajectory. Yet given the nature of our culture and this unknown entity, one can never be careful. But what do I know, i'm not a doctor, nor a Epidemiologists.

It should be noted
What did we learn (see the table for the analysis)

That between 5% and 80% of people testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 may be asymptomatic
That symptom-based screening will miss cases, perhaps a lot of them
That some  asymptomatic cases  will  become  symptomatic over the next week (sometimes known as “pre-symptomatics”)
That children and young adults can be asymptomatic

From link 1
The Augustus Long Hospital and Hostel located in Pointe-a-Pierre has been refurbished to accommodate 60 patients in the fight against covid19.

.............
The operations of the facility was handed over to the Ministry of Health, which also had oversight in the refurbishment to ensure that it met clinical standards.

Principal Medical Officer at the Health Ministry Dr Maryam Abdool-Richards said, “The refurbishment of this hospital and hostel will serve as an additional health facility in our national parallel health care system for the covid19 response.”
............
Other facilities that are being used to treat covid19 patients are the Caura hospital and the Couva Medical and Multi-Training Facility.

The Government announced that the newly-constructed Arima General Hospital would also be used to treat covid19 patients. It has been equipped with 150 beds, of which ten have been designated for the intensive care and high dependency units.



From link 2

“In case it is needed, it will be available,” the Point Fortin mayor told Newsday by phone. It comprises three storeys on 16 acres of land at the corner of Techier and the Main Road. This 100-bed hospital has 175,000 square feet. Recently Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh announced that the hospital was one of the facilities identified to provide more strength as the need arises


From Link 4
Last Saturday, it was revealed that the National Racquet Centre in Tacarigua, which is under the purview of the Sports Company of TT (SporTT), will be used as a step-down facility that will be equipped with 50 beds.

Home of Football ‘excellent’ for covid19 battle
Jelani Becknles (Newsday).

THE Prime Minister confirmed that the Home of Football in Couva will be used to battle the covid19 virus, saying that the sporting facility is “as good as any accommodation that you could get in TT.”

Dr Rowley confirmed this at a post-Cabinet media briefing, on Thursday. The news follows a tour to the Home of Football by Ministry of Health officials and Ministry of National Security officials, on Wednesday.

“That building you know came into being as a public-private arrangement between the Government and FIFA,” Rowley said.

“It has been offered to the Government and the Government has accepted the offer.”

Rowley said the facility is a quality one. “It has been evaluated and found to be excellent and my advice is that it can accommodate up to about 72 persons of a category that will be designated by the Chief Medical Officer (Dr Roshan Parasram) and the Minister (of Health Dr Terrence Deyalsingh). This is as good as any accommodation that you could get anywhere in TT, so if that kind of accommodation is not found to be suitable then you know that we have exhausted the limit to which we can go as a country.” Within a week the Home of Football should be used as a step-down facility.

Rowley said the private sector, at no cost, will also assist in making the stay for patients more comfortable. “I am happy that people are chipping in in this way.”

The Home of Football was only opened in November 2019 under then TT Football Association president David John-Williams. The facility was later closed because it lacked proper fire safety measures and liability insurance.

Chairman of the Normalisation Committee Robert Hadad, who is now in charge of running TT football, said all measures are being put in place.

“Everything rectified. We are following the advice of Fire Services and we are solving all the problems. The liability insurance is in place also.” Hadad was glad that the facility will be used to battle the virus.

The Home of Football is the second sporting facility in days to be announced as a facility to help battle covid19.

Last Saturday, it was revealed that the National Racquet Centre in Tacarigua, which is under the purview of the Sports Company of TT (SporTT), will be used as a step-down facility that will be equipped with 50 beds.

In an interview with Newsday, chairman of SporTT Douglas Camacho said it is their duty to support the covid19 battle. “We are actually very supportive of anything that the country is doing to help fight this pandemic.”

Newsday, however, received complaints from a resident in Tacarigua about the National Racquet Centre being used.

The resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said, “The residents of 4th Street Extension, Dinsley, Tacarigua are very concerned as many of us live directly behind the Racquet Centre only separated by a wire fence and some trees. “We as residents would like to know what the criteria was in choosing this centre when there are many unoccupied similar buildings in more isolated locations around the country.”

Sorry Dwight, I respect you, but I can't agree with you.
Sure FIFA should do a NC, but they 16 years late(see below), and since they couldn't see it necessary to do it in the last 3 admins, why do they see fit to do it now, when a open and aggressively transparent admin is determined to right the ship.  Maybe, and we all guessing, maybe this admin is to transparent, and as a result, to much crooked underhand dealings would be brought to the forefront. That won't be just a stain on their organization, that might actually cause additional hemorrhaging and need of critical life support of their internal workings. The last clean up was just a changing of the crooks/guard, depending on how you look at it. Can't have a little country like TT exposing that, no country for that matter.
As usual, Dwight wrong everytime he's not on the subject of football on the field.



From Wikipedia
2006 World Cup players' bonus dispute
Following the 2006 World Cup, the national team was thrown into turmoil by a dispute between the players from the World Cup squad and the TTFF. Prior to the competition, the players had agreed to a bonus scheme with the TTFF, where the players would share 50% of the federation's income from the World Cup.
Following the competition, the TTFF declared the income and expenses of TT$18.25 million and TT$17.97 million, respectively. This left TT$282,952 in net revenue and offered each player TT$5600, whereby the players rejected the offer. Subsequently, the TTFF revised their figure to TT$950,000. The amount the Federation received during their qualification campaign prior to the 2006 World Cup. The players also rejected the revised offer and requested to see the TTFF's unaudited accounts. The Federation refused the player's request.

The sixteen players were Marvin Andrews, Chris Birchall, Atiba Charles, Ian Cox, Cornell Glen, Cyd Gray, Shaka Hislop, Kelvin Jack, Avery John, Stern John, Kenwyne Jones, Collin Samuel, Brent Sancho, Aurtis Whitley, Evans Wise, and Anthony Wolfe. The players claim to have been blacklisted as none had been selected to represent the national team since a friendly against Austria in November 2006. The TTFF claimed that the decision was left to the coach, Wim Rijsbergen.[3]

On 30 June 2007, the players initiated a lawsuit against the TTFF.[4] Following an August 2007 inquiry by their lawyers to the Trinidad and Tobago government under the Freedom of Information Act, it was revealed that the TTFF had understated its income by at least TT$173.5 million. This was not including a TT$32 million bonus paid by the government and television revenue from friendly matches played in Europe prior to the World Cup. As a result, the players were deprived of at least TT$6.5 million each.[5]

Following the inquiry, the TTFF immediately lifted its ban on the players, and agreed to go to arbitration in London rather than to court. On 18 May 2008, British arbitrator Ian Mill QC ruled that the Soca Warriors were entitled to 50% of the profits of the Federation obtained from 2006 World Cup qualifying, as well as friendlies prior to the World Cup. However, on 9 Jan 2009 the proceedings never progressed as the TTFF were no longer interested in arbitration hearings in London and shifted their dispute to the Port of Spain Higher Court. The TTFF argued that the change was due to lawyers representing the 16 players breached the confidentiality clause in comments made to a local newspaper and other international media houses. A hearing of the application to lift the order which prevents the Port of Spain High Court from hearing the case is expected on 16 June 2009.[6][needs update]

In February 2011 the High Court ruled that an interim payment of US$1,140,384.39 be paid to the footballers. The judge also rejected the accounting documents submitted by the TTFF.[clarification needed]

In August 2012, the Federation relocated to new offices in Woodbroke as a consequence of having its equipment seized in a court order relating to unpaid payments.[7]

74
Given the way how FIFA conducted themselves with the previous admin,especially the support of a grown debt - 16 M to 50 M without any intense investigation and their current unfair removal of the present TTFA admin. I don't think mediation with a positive result is possible. To many crooks in that kitchen, historically and currently. Now, the question is, can little we remove them given our real and present debt situation ? Very unlikely. So besides reinstatement of the elected body. What else should we demand, if any ?

I think they should totally fund the completion of the Hotel/Dorm, as well as launch their own internal investigation into the reasons whereby the prev. admin had a debt of 34 M and whoever played a part in that accumulation, through their NC reps. In a published report, advising the current admin how to proceed with and their(Fifa) help to eradicating that debt.
With normal annual contributions (not asking for no more than any other admin), leave the current TTFA to handle any future admin, and financial dealings going forward. The NC can also monitor the debt growth of the current admin for the next 24 months .

Is that asking to much ?

75
Would love to get those Lasana pieces in a UK tabloid. It will probably garner more interest and support than in this region.

I just took a look to see an example of the workings of CAS in dealing with a football case

https://www.tas-cas.org/fileadmin/user_upload/Award_CAS_5264-5265-5266_internet.pdf

Check the length of time to get a decision. I got almost 30 months of Lott’s a bs. Of Course The applicant submissions were dismissed.
Something had me lil confused doh.

It might be the fact that Inter Miami got in, Miami FC out. Anyone have any more info on their (FC) application?

Add: appeals might not be as long but given the current world situation, an early response or resolution might still be long rather than short term. Due to the same world situation, we have time.

77
I have a question to all football loving fans of TnT football fans ! What must the ttfa do in this instance as it relates to Fifa's stance by removing a democratically elected  team of officials of the current ttfa body ? An election they ( Fifa ) themselves oversaw ! In all seriousness it is inconceivable that Fifa now  to choose invalidate the William Wallace elected body to replace it by one of their Fifa choosing ! Yet many  are now coming out of the woodwork siding with Fifa's unjust albeit nonsensical explaination for the position they have taken . It is an outrage and should be called exactly that . It is unjust and should be called that . What must the ttfa do ? Should the ttfa In all fairness Go on blended knees  begging please? What example are we setting to the younger ones by allowing such ugliness on the part of Fifa , to continue . This is not about ego on the part of the current ttfa to take a firm stance against what Fifa has done or is attempting to do as claim by Fifa , it is simply addressing an act of injustice that's my view . Stand up against injustice  falling to do so is allowing abuses to continue
Totally agree, but Stand up and do the necessary in such a way that it does not lead to additional injustice. It's most discouraging and disappointing when one buys a victim's fight against a bully and the victim help the bully buss yuh ass. And the ppl who witness and standby just observing buffing yuh for getting involved in the first place. As I tell my kids, living in any society-sometimes class filled and racial- especially an unequal one,  choose yuh battles and expect no help.  At the end of the day, if you win, many will say how correct and commendable it was for you to stand up, when you win. And those same ppl will chastise you for not being smart and practical when you lose. Pick yuh battles and plan for the future, but by all means battle.             

78
maxg is nothing less than war!

You feel Fifa coming to take prisoners? It not in their best interests to leave anybody of the past admin alive (relevant)
In case you missed it this was a root and branch action.

This thing goes beyond the boundary.



Ok. Let's say we go to war. We David(WW), them Goliath(INfantino et al). We win our case, but them say nah is War, Goliath ain't dead, just lost the battle, long live Fifa, so they suspend the current TTFA for not conforming to their decisions or maybe not releasing equal normal funding as given to other regional members  (they can trump up something).Exhb a) So we have the right people, but no income, Government can't help, as all potential funding used up in present and future replenishment from fallout of Covid19. Debt still unrelaxed. Sponsorship revised and unable to assist. Covid19. Staff still to be paid, but no funds. Staff has to leave to find other jobs. Cases /Lawyers for the items with Walkes, Warner, Phillips, Hart, and whatever outstanding creditors, willing to take negotiate less, yet no funds. We can't raise a penny to play a fete match, farless put a team together. However, our best  Players agree to play for free and come on their own bill. Who we playing and where ?
Thing is, I ok with that. At this time, world economy and social values will be changing and the recovery of all countries will be of paramount.  This gives our football, time to develop(5-10yrs) and then we can reapply to join world organization, IF so desired.

Scenario B
We loss, NC is maintained, but we at War. No cooperation. Fifa withhold funding - Right ppl for some, still restricted income , but some. No staff, no confidence, no support. Football not going anywhere, as organization and admin is the focus. No football for a few years, Electorial body instill, the wrong people. We protest, Fifa suspend. and above occurs.

In war, there is not necessarily prisoners, when there are very few witnesses. Just graves. Then there is the fact that we have spies, traitors and turncoats in our ranks. What is point of winning the battle to lose the War. No, I think we should avoid War as long as we can, so if and when it does come we are prepared to win, regardless of the earlier battles. We first have to be a majority on the same page, have the same goals and commitment. Lest we lose every battle due to a knife in the back.

add: I understand most ppl points, but we are already hard done by. I am just wary of cutting off our noses to spite our faces. We can't just look at how it affects us as fans, but how it affects our country and our people, especially our youth. I know I can survive without Fifa, but do we have the ppl who can function without that dream at present ? not sure. My mind is still open to strategies doh.

79
There should be / need to be further investigation into Djw and Fifa officials as it relates to the home football project !

Absolutely. And,  the Government  of Trinidad & Tobago should be at the forefront of pursuing its own inquiry.
Especially considering their (tax-payers) contributions.

80
I think I follow your point, however, As Ramdhan at present is the person responsible for most of the communication between Fifa and the new TTFA. i.e. The primary witness to the reported transgressions of the chief FIFA official for the region as well as the reporting of those of the previous admin. We don't want him to resign and pull out at this point.
I get the impression that the majority although certain that Fifa was incorrect in their decision/actions, we do not need to go to WAR with Fifa to prove their actions wrong. War leaves casualties whereby many lower in the totem pole and lowest in rank, discouraged, disabled or dead on both sides, while the top guys celebrate success or surrender. We can appease FIFA by displaying we are not at war with them, even if we disagree with their action.
If we seem to be fighting amongst ourselves even as we try to argue why we should be left in charge, then we already lost our argument before we make our appeal to have this decision revised. More reason for Fifa to display why their decision is in fact correct. As someone says certain things have to be decided and worked out behind closed doors, and if 3 FOR and 2 against, we have to present we are in agreement FOR. Otherwise, yes a Normailsation Comittee will be necessary. No ?

81
Mr Look Loy needs to chill if his PRESIDENT is cool. He not and didn’t want to be in charge. Not everyone agrees with one’s view, so get closer to them to try and see theirs.

82
The word is "normalise". Not paradise.

It's curious that there is a view that a NC will vest us with manna from heaven. That's a twisted narrative for several reasons. Of course,  the genius of normalisation would explain why Pakistan is on its third NC.  ::)

Normalisation won't ever trump root and branch transformation, but we can be deluded into believing that the objective here is root and branch transformation. It isn't.

Manna with Kool Aid? Not hungry.

“Had Wallace or even John-Williams taken the chance to use the facility, it would have cost the TTFA a lot of money, and thereby doing the opposite of what it was constructed for. There are huge overheads to be covered first before you can think of making a profit. For my hotel alone it costs $100,000 in overheads and at the Home of Football, it is significantly higher,” Ramsingh said.



---------------------

Common sense

each body overseer the hotel. And all associations share the expenses, cause left to football alone, we’ll we know how that goes.. el

maxg, while you making sense, I see this hotel as DJW plaything. Another center of "excellence" scenario.
Many people like expensive playthings, very few can manage them to a profit or well. Can he keep the hotel operationally successful, can he put ppl in the rooms at their expense and not ours ? As i said swimming is going to cover 1 month. Having a nice hotel to hold our National football camps is great, but how is it going to make money to cover those National camps. This is not a Ma & PA bb we talking about, it's a thing that will require year round staffing and operations. 80% of Operations and occupancy may have nothing to do with football . Staff can't be hired by month or event...the only way this will be viable for our National programs, is if the Hotel can operate at a profit, regardless of how nice it look or wonderful location to stadia.

ps: MzTing graduating in Tourism and Hotel Management, but given how ppl does get pay, i not recommending her at all. ;)                           

84
why do they need between 300 & 500 K ? The lawyers really charging that minimum ? besides that being a wide gap ! This isn't no big court case where knowledge of international law is required, just international common sense. Even Wallace and Ramdhan can represent. Case won't be called until travel restrictions are relaxed anyway. Flight & Hotel meals 1 week, max $3000 cad/person. Retention/loss of work/stipend : $2000 cad/person = , Court clothes : 1000 cad/person. ~60 K TT total.
" modest fees" can't be 240 K TT- 50 k cad ? so is that lawyer fee.
Shouldn't drink champagne when yuh only have beer money. It's quite possible I don't know the ins and outs, willing to learn.
https://www.tas-cas.org/en/general-information/frequently-asked-questions.html

How much does the arbitration cost ?
The ordinary procedure involves paying the relatively modest costs and fees of the arbitrators, calculated on the basis of a fixed scale of charges, plus a share of the costs of the CAS.

The disciplinary cases of an international nature ruled in appeal are free, except for an initial Court Office fee of CHF 1000.-.

Can one be represented during the proceedings ?
The parties may appear alone. They may also be represented or assisted at CAS hearings by a person of their choice, not necessarily a lawyer.
What is CAS mediation ?
Mediation is a non-binding and informal procedure, based on a mediation agreement in which each party undertakes to attempt in good faith to negotiate with the other party, and with the assistance of a CAS mediator, with a view to settling a sports-related dispute.­

What about Ambassadors Shaka and Dwight, they already decline ?

I think we are already suspended and that’s what we are appealing.

My point is, so what if we can’t play WC for the next 10 or so years. If Fifa go so low , when our case is won, as to dismiss us as a member, it would only give us a chance to work on our development and continue to play regional tournaments. Better for both growth. We won’t be going a WC soon in the world state nor our own state, for quite sometime . Martinique (as reference of non-WC participants is all) does very well with what they have and do. How much stadia they have again ? France supports them, but they don’t spoil them. They work they tail off to be even get a sniff of travel. When we are ready and able to test ourselves against CFU and the odd Concacaf exhibition, with consistently positive results, on and OFF the field. Only then, if ppl want they can go beg Fifa to give us permission to show off, and let a few of us play with Villa and ManU.
Joke: doh ask meh how Villa and ManU come in this, eh Deeks . ;D ;D
Btw, How yuh making out with the virus? I imagine y’all on extra care and lock down. Hope everyone is fine. Only one of my club members in ICU so far, but not critical.

My point is, so what if we can’t play WC for the next 10 or so years. If Fifa go so low , when our case is won, as to dismiss us as a member, it would only give us a chance to work on our development and continue to play regional tournaments. Better for both growth. We won’t be going a WC soon in the world state nor our own state, for quite sometime . Martinique (as reference of non-WC participants is all) does very well with what they have and do. How much stadia they have again ? France supports them, but they don’t spoil them. They work they tail off to be even get a sniff of travel. When we are ready and able to test ourselves against CFU and the odd Concacaf exhibition, with consistently positive results, on and OFF the field. Only then, if ppl want they can go beg Fifa to give us permission to show off, and let a few of us play with Villa and ManU.
Joke: doh ask meh how Villa and ManU come in this, eh Deeks . ;D ;D
Btw, How yuh making out with the virus? I imagine y’all on extra care and lock down. Hope everyone is fine. Only one of my club members in ICU so far, but not critical.

Mr Wallace, TT Football is already affected, afflicted and/or infected, regardless of your decision. Even if FIFA themselves pay off the 50 M debt, and put the football back in one of their puppets hands, what from past history and puppeteers modus operandi (inclusive of puppet masters, Veron et al) tell you where our football will be. No sir, you would not have any more negative effect on our football than what there is already. Unless your lawyers themselves run up a further significant bill that add to the debt -  your only contribution to the debt. New FIFA corruption, any corruption, is your duty to expose to the best of your ability as others have recently done. Otherwise if you are aware of a crime and choose to do nothing aren't you complicit. Does our football absolutely need FIFA to develop within the next decade ? Does FIFA need us ? Martinique has strong support of France, but their players do quite well outside of FIFA, Yet still a member of CFU and CONCACAF. 
True, you guys are the ones facing the music, but if y'all leave, will football continue to dance to the new old music. We weren't dancing before. Best Wishes, and God Help in your decisions.

I really don't get this New Project. Why not work with, finish, complete what y'all have, with whatever finance that can be raised. We go just go out and build another structure. We don't have enough structures just sitting doing nothing. Especially at this time when there is nothing, and I mean nothing.    :frustrated: ???

Is a make wuk to move funds or what.  Lawd..This is another Tarouba elephant or Arima Tigers fiasco.

We playing Sim City, click ah mouse and poof, building going up.   :bs:
This is nonsensical to be talking about now, given the current world and FIFA situation.
