Why would any morally ethically right minded voter seek to support a candidate with a past that is well documented to be less stellar?

Leadership is sadly lacking in terms of  people with a vision and  concrete plans to enact upon them. What we have are political opportunist operating with 19th century paradigm of making empty promises and resorting to mudslinging.

The opposition realibility is based on ignorant locality to an ethnic affiliation rather than any sound judgement or character worthy of being an iconic mentor or someone to aspire to. Instead the public is given false promises endless divisive rhetoric and incompetent puppeteers.

The ruling government has the most potential to deliver a pathway to move this  country however its leader has to be decisive  in dealing with underperforming ministers - purge the insiders from the former government in each ministry and  maintain and de and the highest moral ethical practices  from all public servants.

The current opposition  has done very little to instill public trust but is leading the way with mistrust misdirection  divisive politics and  malcontent
I humbly beseech TnT to wake up and look closely at what goods you are been sold by those who constantly plays the , "race card" yet there are those who follow like sheep who thirsting for power will sell their own brothers and sisters  for a pound of flesh or an opportune  grasp at power.

Sad very sad to see how some are being used against thier own  by snakes waiting in the grass -yuh ent see how the blind does grab at the first hand to lead them across the road!

Nah boi- I c yah believe  it- after watching this video ,, about the current head coach of the national me s team is like we  either have the dunciest  leaders heading up TTFA or we are susceptible to - a swindling sweet talking English accent which summers to all omnipotent in these parts.

From purely an ethical standpoint - how do we even elect an individual with these past discretions to lead our team? Well then again this falls into our Trini norm- how do we even elect leaders to lead the TTFA , you ent see the previous ministers and leaders from past governments?  Men heading up sports programs and giving away money freely to anyone with a shady past?

Why should the selection of a coach be any different? But is this the man we want at our helm for our young players to aspire and to follow? Then again we had A coach who was part of insurrection that held a government at ransom - came back and held several coaching positions
Only inTnT - old people use to say " whey yuh go do" ent we like commess? Ent we like bacchanal?
Ent we are the epi centre for corruption?
The current coach found a way to adapt assimilate integrate and become like ah Trini- hone his craft well and is now being duly rewarded.
Yuh get what you sow - we will reap what was sown-
Is there no ne with the moral fortitude to make difficult decisions to right this ship?
Or is all this normal as to how we do business? Looks like we always had a normalization committeee in place
Tally ho

This marketing could have been more cost effective and effective if:
A.   TTFA had hired or commissioned the" Socawarriors on.ine forum and by default those posters who  would have marketed the product worldwide

B.  Hired or commissioned the said forumities to be advisories/ consultants - regarding operations, team selection, coaches, playing facilities and any other said matters pertaining to the efficiency of football in TnT

C.  Continued with the appointment of the Forum stalwarts as head of scouting

D. Hire or commission the said forumities to  promote and to be  board members to set directives and directions for football in TnT

E. Commission the said forumities to  be a local ' normalization committeee' to ensure a corrupt free transition and restoration of a highly functioning TTFA

looking at the past record of TTFA blunders in my humble opinion we could have done no worst than what was and what has been a traversity of mismanagement and inept leadership - under the cloak and veilof alleged corruption throughout the years.

This is getting increasingly puzzling with each day, each interview and each press release.

I don't  understand the timing in regards to these public disclosures- especially if these could all be  connected to matters pending before the courts with FIFA.

I could understand wanting to defend ones name but in a storm sometimes it's better to be calm and composed.

Then again what is being revealed typifies the kind of leadership we have come to expect form that position in the TTFA.

The beat goes on.......   different pile same sht

When's will TTFA  change it's constitution so that current inept executives - so e who can't even manage their own teams or leagues be prohibited from holding the office as president?

Everyone of those leaders. Have all failed at creating a viable financially pro fitting entirety - there ought to be no way that taxpayers dollars be used to subsidized privately owned teams - U tilt each team owner could demonstrate. Their competence in looking after their own house only then should they be considered for the likelihood of  running the TTFA.

A criteria should not be who could run bobol , profit of FIFA funds and become rich with side deals.

Up till this day- even though we have a coach in place some people still talking about the merits of how that coach was selected?

does anyone know if there was a selection committee and what the criteria was/ is for that said position?

What was the criteria for deciding on a base salary?
Was the awarded salary based on - experience?  Previous coaching success? 

What is the comparative salary among coaches in the region?
How much is the Jamaican national coach paid?

Could we have some sense and  sensibility when it comes to decision making from the TTFA?

General Discussion / Re: Life Sport programme Thread.
« on: June 15, 2020, 11:27:09 PM »
AG: LifeSport still alive

THE multi-million dollar LifeSport programme is still being investigated.

Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi disclosed yesterday in reaction to a ruling on Monday by a High Court judge which quashed an audit report of the programme, which was taken to Parliament by the People’s Partnership government under then Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar. Al-Rawi blamed Persad-Bissessar for Monday’s court outcome, citing her premature laying of the audit report in Parliament in July 2014.

Al Rawi said that a Senior Counsel ought to know that natural justice says an acccused person has the right to be heard.

Al-Rawi said the ruling upheld only five out of 14 grounds argued by the claimants. These were: that a breach of natural justice had occurred, that legitimate expectations had been breached, that the claimants had not been informed nor given the right to be heard, a grant of the order of certiorari (quashing the report), and the award of legal costs. Otherwise, he said, other investigations into Life Sport are still alive - including a probe by the police, even as he suggested reporters could ask the Integrity Commission about the probe it is conducting. Al-Rawi neither confirmed nor denied if Government will appeal Justice Mira Dean-Armorer’s ruling, a written version of which he is awaiting.

Al-Rawi recapped that under Life Sport, half-billion dollars was dubiously spent, amid allegations of murder, corruption, bid-rigging and fraud, some issues including several public officials. The Ministry of Finance’s Central Audit Committee (CAC) had probed all aspects of Life Sport, after which Persad-Bissessar, laid it in the Lower House in July 2014. Al-Rawi said that former Finance Minister, Larry Howai had been specifically told that the allegations must be presented to the alleged wrongdoers. Al-Rawi said Persad- Bissessar should have known that premature publication - without a chance of reply - would result in breaches of the law.

“She went on to give the claimants the very card that found itself face up,” the AG said. The AG said the rules of an internal audit mandate that parties must be told of the possibility of adverse findings and that an exit interview be done, the latter which had been promised to all witnesses for the suspects. The AG alleged that even when former Ministry of Sport Permanent Secretary (PS) Ashwin Creed, later sat as Head of the Public Service as PS in the Office of the Prime Minister under Persad-Bissessar, no action was taken to send the LifeSport report to the Public Service Commission (PSC), until the PNM took office.

Al-Rawi said that just because the High Court had quashed the official audit report into LifeSport, that does not stop other investigations from proceeding, as the subject matter that gave rise to the report still exists. He spoke later of over-billing and a doubling up of invoices. “There are other matter around Life Sport that are getting attention,” the Attorney General said. Al -Rawi warned that certain person(s) should not be so quick to think they can walk away from the LifeSport allegations. “I’d not be as comfortable as these with their newfound bravery,” he said.

(See Page 5) Attempts yesterday by Newsday to contact Persad-Bissessar, Howai and several Opposition-linked attorneys for comment on the AG’s claims, were unsuccessful.

And just imagine this program initiative unde a certain government  benefitted more non sports individuals than players - the sports minister had to flee the country but all the rakes cool down - all allegations  forgotten nothing resolved and now yuh ent see how. People want to bring this leadership back?
Joking  - dis place real " jokey

Well we are a free democratic country- People do have the right to choose whomever they wish to align with.

I just  think that based on the principles of a party and the ethics of leadership it seems like an u fathomable choice to chose a party whose leadership in divisive dysfunctional and  destabilizing.

I would like to know how Candidates who are looking for an opportunity into the political foray decide on who they will align with:

- do you jump at where there is a vacancy ?
Or do you consider a party

Well I sure hope he could uproot all the " weeds " which were planted in ministerial posts prior to assuming office - yuh ent see how the "" moon" does shine and always claim to have inside information on everything  growing?
The " Moon"  have  a real way of producing government information - it does glow in the dark - brightest light to overthrow the sun.

" Arise fair sun and  doh let the envious Moon  knee you "

We already saw how it went with DL and the fifa subvention, now Fenwick?

Well, all I will say is, you cannot trust Fenwick if he is indeed paid by fifa. I expect the same selling out like with DL.

If it hasn’t occurred to the people on the board, outside of Hart and a few other coaches, the TT senior men’s coaching job is a gold mine for corruption, bribery and a stepping stone.

It’s a coaches ticket to bribes, high level corruption, high salaries from a fifa subvention and zero accountability and results. It also serves as a stepping stone to get in fifas good books. Selling out to ensure TT is kept midway or below, never in the top four.

Subservient and posing no threat like the rest of the Cfu.

I warned everyone before, if Fenwick is paid by fifa through the subvention, it’s game over again...

Provide concrete and ocular proof of such Wild  assertions that such possibilities could be so of senior men's coaches? That they could be ticketed for such possibilities.

Nah- dis eh normal- how d fac  yuh hire a head coach without any national head coaching experience dat kinda money?
 I would like to see what the average head coaching salary looks like? 17 k US $$$$
That is fracking bankruptcy- what  were the other coaches making?

What incentive is there for a head coach when the salary is already laden and on par with some CEOs?

What does a coach have to prove when he is already making top change? How is this salRy compared to DL?

How much was Beenieman's initial contract?  TF wanted this job so bad that surely the TTFA had nuff leverage to negotiate a more incremental laden contract based on incremental improvements by the team?

If they indeed  sanctioned this contract, then some heads need normalization.


Let's not reassure t any football executives with the letters JW in it land  we talking the  rise of  local magnate  of  building an empire  through the profits of football
We talking any executive past or present who owns a football team cannot  runTTFA  for the general good without some self seeking get rich  erection of what amounts to bea Taj Mahal - from the centre of excellence to the Home of football  - these monuments have co e with a price

" The fault dearBrutus lies  not in the stars but in ourselves"  does fault comes with trying to do what is a perceived right?
Doesf fault come with  taking a  stance at the expense of  football in TnT?
Does fault comes with trying to restructure and implement football development inTnT?
Does fault comes with trying to I still so e hope of a brighter future  after inheriting years of mediocracy?

Does fault comes from making changes while BS executives trying to stab you in the back?

I didn't come to praise any side but to clearly showing my humble opinion that the self seeking stances from both FIFA and the TTFA at this time  does not seem to be with the best interest of our players or  national football future.

The evil that men do lvexafter them the good often interred with their bones

Not about winners here but clearly the football programs development and players of TnT are paying the price for this political power play between these two fractions.

From the heights of WC 2006 to the depths of 2020 we are the " sucker whips" of the Caribbean- Shameful
Too many people want an easy passage to richness at the expense of the love of the game too many BS type of men posing as executives - shame shame shame  on all the wanna bes

What part of all this farce is " Normal"? What corrective measures have taken place since the inception of the FIFA  normalization committee?

All we have seen are divisive elements and increased fractions among the local and regional football bodies in terms of their allergiencies to the " football gods"

How could the resulting actions thus far be better for TnT football or aspiring players? We have become the laughing stock of the Caribbean and  it's time the public demand  for the betterment of football in TnT  proactive measures  that would stabilize the situation rather than having stooges and clowns parading about and braying for some iota of an international e t from the almighty omnipotent football  dogs of FIFA.

. ...... no Republicans !!! 
Reminds me of something we had here in TnT before

Biden should consider Michelle Obama as a vice Candidate

Samoura said based on its own assessment and in collaboration with Concacaf, FIFA considered the situation as exceptional enough to justify an application of the provisions of article. 8.2 of the FIFA statutes.

“FIFA will therefore not enter into any kind of unofficial correspondence of negotiation with you on the specific reasons for its decisions and reserves its arguments and evidences for any possible official legal action related to this matter,” Samoura said.

This sounds like  grasping for straws- If you have a strong case, why pursue  any type of agreement?  What puzzles me is " FIFA 's  assessment and  collaboration with CONCACAF" !!  What assessment?  When was the assessment done? What was the assessment based on?  Who in Concacsf was consulted and collaborated with  for this decision?

This proves raises some doubts for me on both sides- and it also shows the heavy handed governance of FIFA governing with " just cause"

Could countries break away form another global body and play football - and say fck FIFA

Hey look
It's not like this one p,Ayer is a game changer but I do wish he would have been given more opportunities and groomed as a future key component in our rebuild-

This position has been underscored since our post WC appearance- going with  local GKs who were pretty   underexposed to a different level of football seemed to simply show the lack of  thoughtfulness and oversight as to the key to having a  bonafide GK.

These are very Abnormal times in our football governance-

Why is it so challenging to find competent leaderspih  for the TTFA?  Is there a job description and criteria for this?
 Or does everyone who aspire for this position have visions of getting rich quickly by mismanaging funds and building  vacuoles legacies ?

Land yuh would think that they all so duncee  like they graduate from the school of you ent see yet.

Where else could a bold face man rip off FIFA and a country by setting up a Centre of Excellence with alleged FIFA  funds and  have an  empire with football profits  - became a prophet in his own land 
Get the island to aWC  and today everybody quiet and sweep that u dear the mat.
Now we want to make issues over the HoF?
another monument to the leadership and legacy of TTFA?   the man an I Ted oust from power now  creating havoc behind the scenes  and we  watching the chess game  being played out?

I all for the governeming intervening  and setting up a committeee to. Take charge of this football governeming body - after alll is taxpayers money subsidizing professional teams,  who are supposedly being operated for profit and as a business ,subsidizing facilities and these sports monuments-  the government ought to  intervene and protect  national assets - least we have  another king pin inheriting a HoF as a private venture.

Just doh do like  you ent see what happened in the past with SPOTT and AR giving away government money to cronies - doh do  dat - Leah we have proper intervention measures
