Let me just say how stupid JDW and Shabazz are ,they been plotting to overthrow Hart since last January ,and in all that time never put any thought into who would be his successor  ??? ,really trying to use google for a bargain bin coach !
This was the plan when ffisback was calling for Harts heart on a platter ?
Now DJW says he's not helping in picking the coach ,this from a man we heard was insulting Hart in the stands .All of a sudden he does not interfere with the coaching .
What we have to remember SWN is that DJW owns a pro league team which he thinks plays fantastic and at a great standard ,so now that he's running the MNT seeing them play at a pro league standard would be a source of pride for him ,because to him that is good football .
Only problem would be the MNT would be as popular to the TNT public as a proleague game.
As for rehiring Hart ,that might be the only way to save this disaster of a hex ,but can those two suddenly powerful head honchos of the Federation be able to swallow there pride and admit that they were wrong ?

If sabotaging Coach Harts program and undermining him to the players ,so he could fire him .He compounded his underhandedness by hiring a fraud coach to prove he did not plan to hire his own coaches lol ,which totally distroyed the team .

So even Jack says JDW should be fired ,so  the president could be fired then ,we need jack to tell us how that could be done ? .A vote of no confidence maybe .
Also regarding the next coach ,DJW hired a European check ,now give the job to someone already on the books no extra salary check  .

This should've been our year to qualify all they had to was stand pat and support Hart .But so bad minded and vindictive that now they have  to sit in the hot mess and eat the fruits of their deeds .
This administration messed with the golden generation that would be old by the next WC ,we might not qualify again till the 2030s or 2040s ,if ever.
But they had to give Sainfeit his shot to prove how good he was .
Also David and Jamal wanted do it their way as they were hellbent on thinking they had all the answers  and fixes when all they had to do was Nurture what was already in place .
Heartbroken 😭 World Cup is gone forever !

How long is the tenure for the TTFA president?

In other words, when is the next election? Who are the possible candidates that may pose a credible challenge? Is anybody else genuinely interested?

Those persons should be mobilizing now, not to agitate, but to start to communicate their philosophy for the future and present an alternative. The removal of incumbency is anchored in a process and those persons need to start to address stakeholders earlier rather than later.
Stephen Hart should be the president .I think he is not a thief and has no hidden agendas .

If your European and met the TTFA brass would you think that this was a First Class First World kinda place ?

Trinbago, NBA & World Basketball / Re: Raptors Tread
« on: December 16, 2016, 12:30:58 PM »
The Toronto Raptors are the hottest team in the NBA, which doesn’t necessarily make them the best team, but given the franchise’s recent success doesn’t mean that winning 10 of their past 11 starts and sitting a half game out of first place in the Eastern Conference is an aberration, either.

The Raptors have been among the best teams in the NBA for three calendar years now, and appear to be improving. When you sport a league-leading offensive rating of 115.3 points per 100 possessions — nearly two points ahead of the second-place Golden State Warriors and three more than the Warriors managed in their 73-win season a year ago – clearly something is happening.

And they know it.

“It’s not a fluke,” said DeMar DeRozan, amid a career year in his eighth season, averaging 28 points a game, fourth in the NBA. “We’ve had one of the toughest schedules the league and we’ve figured out a way to come out on top and it’s not just from one individual, it’s coming from a team perspective, you know?”
People should now.

But the curious thing as the Raptors continue to roll — they are going for their fifth straight win and 11th in 12 games against the visiting Atlanta Hawks at the Air Canada Centre Friday night — is how little apparent buzz their performance is generating outside of the ACC, which will be sold out for the 106th straight game, and among local television audiences, which are up significantly.

In a long NBA season there are lulls and this part of December - after all the early season excitement has petered out and before the Christmas Day hoops festival ramps up - qualifies as one of them. It’s a good time for lists.

Thus we have the quarter-season award watch. One might think that the Raptors, given their status as the league’s most excellent offence and their December dominance and status near the top of the league tables would get their share of buzz.

One might think wrong.

We’ve long given up thinking that the Raptors will ever be top-of-mind league-wide. Their status as the NBA’s lone Canadian franchise means they will always fall short in terms of getting their fair share of national US broadcasts or appearances on the Christmas Day showcases and the like. It’s not going to happen. Two US markets drive ratings and broadcast revenues more efficiently than one Canadian market and one US market. It's just math.

But what is interesting is how the Raptors' early season accomplishments have barely penetrated the consciousness of even those who aren’t presumably thinking about ratings or advertising revenues and who are appealing to a hardcore basketball audience.

A sampling of three respected NBA voices’ early season awards tracking leaves the Raptors virtually bereft of any kind of recognition whatsoever.

At SI.com, Ben Golliver - who drew the Raptors ire when he and colleague Rob Mahoney had DeRozan ranked 46th on their pre-season list of the NBA’s top 100 players — listed five candidates for Most Valuable Player and two honourable mentions without getting to DeRozan or Kyle Lowry who have been the twin locomotives driving the Raptors train.
Similarly, Sam Amick and Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today didn’t acknowledge the potential candidacy of either of the Raptors duo.

Howard Beck, who covers the NBA for Bleacher Report, listed nine players who deserved MVP consideration through the season’s first 20 or so games without mentioning a Raptor.

Granted, the MVP award is the NBA’s tallest mountain, scaled only by Hall-of-Famers, and this season to date has produced some incredible performances by the likes of Russell Westbrook (everyone’s MVP favourite or co-favourite, it seems), Kevin Durant, James Harden, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and more.

And this isn’t to suggest that either of Lowry and DeRozan should or will win the award at the end of the year. It’s just that it seems strange that two players having career-years for an Eastern Conference finalist team that is hitting never-before-seen peaks in offensive efficiency while on pace to win 59 games is doing all of it with so little fanfare league-wide.

For the first dozen games DeRozan was doing things – like posting 10 30-point outings - not done since Michael Jordan was in his physical prime. For the past dozen or so games Lowry is doing things — like hitting 59 per cent of his three-point attempts — that Steph Curry (34 per cent from deep over his last 10, but who’s counting) would envy and would likely have generated a Twitter hashtag by now and a sponsored spot on ESPN’s Sports Center.

So far? Silence.

"You can’t control that,” said Raptors head coach Dwane Casey about the lack of attention Lowry — the only player in the NBA averaging at least 21 points, seven rebounds and 1.5 steals while shooting at least 44 per cent from deep — has generated. "All you can do is continue to win, play at a high level, continue to do it and hopefully the US media will see it and recognize it. We’re biased here, but he’s played at such a level it should be talked about it. But I can’t control it, Kyle can’t control it. The one thing he can control is to continue to put forth the effort to help us win and almost embarrass everybody else to [talk] about it.”

But the list of Raptors deserving attention for their individual accomplishments in the context of team success doesn’t begin or end with DeRozan and Lowry.

DeRozan made a point of mentioning Terrence Ross as a viable Sixth Man Award candidate after Ross rescued the Raptors with 25 points off the bench against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night. Only six players in the NBA are averaging at least 19.9 points per 36 minutes and shooting at least 44 per cent from three, but Ross is the only one doing it off the bench. Throw in his 1.7 steals and Ross is the only player in any role providing that combination of ball-hawking, scoring and perimeter marksmanship on a per 36 basis.

But while most Sixth Man lists include Jamal Crawford of the Clippers, Zach Randolph of Memphis, Lou Williams of the Lakers or Eric Gordon with Houston, they don’t mention Ross and the Raptors.

"What Terrence does for us is incredible,” said DeRozan. "For me not to hear he’s a Sixth Man candidate, it’s kind of unfair because without him coming off the bench and doing the things he do, we wouldn’t be who we are and be in the position we are now.”

How about Coach of the Year?

Dwane Casey is one of the most likeable and media-friendly bench bosses in the NBA. He gives of his time freely. He’s also turned a team that was within a hair’s breadth of being blown up for tanking purposes three years ago into one of the most consistent winners in the league that is now putting up unheard-of offensive numbers.

Yet all that gets him only one mention as a Coach of the Year candidate and third place at that, even though he’s managed the NBA’s third youngest roster and features a raw rookie in Pascal Siakam starting at power-forward; has been missing its only significant off-season acquisition in Jared Sullinger and lost its best defensive player from a year ago — Bismack Biyombo — to free agency.

In that sense, Casey fits right in with his team: overlooked and under-appreciated.

“That's just the way it is when you’re in Toronto,” said Patrick Patterson, the anchor of the Raptors' unheralded second unit. "It’s been that way since I’ve been here. I don’t think it will ever change, but as long as the people around [us] understand it. that’s all that matters."

The solution to all of it is to keep winning, of course.

“We do,” DeRozan said when asked if his club deserved more attention than they’ve received to this point. “[But] I’m not going to sit up here and cry about it or mention about why [we’re] not in it; it just gives [us] more fuel to keep winning, keep doing what we know how to do and everything will figure itself out.”

Hello a Fan here 👏 🤓 Hayek Don't know if to say great points by Kelvin and Shaka because us fans are way to emotional and don't know much so maybe Andre should interview a few more players to find out how good these interviews were lol .
Sound worst than an insider even tho he's a fan himself basically heaped all fans in one big bag ,and interrupted kelvin when he was on fire  :pissedoff: ,should have also probed to let him call players names since Kelvin don't seem to care one sod .

Tim Kee was working on a pipeline of money from the Minister of Sport .
The Wagon can't survive the Road to Russia fellas DJW squash a Certain World Cup spot to save a few grand smh.
Well hopefully during his reign he  might fix the books of the TTFF .
In the mean time because of Hart we lifted our profile and have players in Central America and Mexico for the first time boads well for the next cup ,unfornately Captn K might not be there by then .

Wow. DJW introduced the man by saying if he don't get the job done on March 24th and 28th he will be looking for a next job
That's what I just wrote he dropped the coaching bar so low we would except anybody now David Jack Warner smart & scary to bad
I think that's my new name for him David Jack Warner seems he's earned the monicker now

You get what you can afford.

And if the last coaching staff was anything to go by, this Saintfiet fella mus be doh care if he gettin pay

Now....Lasana will look pretty bad if DJW does NOT name this guy as head coach tomorrow.  We won't have long to wait. 

Maybe Saintfiet agree to use W Connection players exclusively for the national team and his salary will be a cut of any transfer fees players get if signed by foreign (belgian) clubs.
Why should Lasana look bad if this does not happen ,maybe this story could change the course of events .
This is my first post since the massive hart failure and transplant .I have been numb ,saddened ,shocked and disgusted by DJW decisions ,but which I saw coming from the day they removed Tim Kee ,felt the same way when they voted out Manning for Kamla ,better the devil you know in a place like Trini .
If this article holds true then I agree with posters who says he's a puppet or muppet coach which the admin can manipulate.
Also I think it's a master stroke by the Admin ,by dropping the bar so low ppl would rejoice now with even Charles  .Genius !!
Anyway I had given up after ......🤔 Think it was the Costa Rica loss knowing there is more in the Mortar than the Pestle ,only posted because  injunchile said don't be quiet today.
But I think This new admin is like contro says ,is the Dark Lord and we can't win against him for the time being ,would have to be a long  drawn out war like what we waged against Jack Warner ...DJW =David Jack Warner .
We are Doomed to the plantation .
No Russia sorry guys .
Sorry for typos etc

I think this team been in array since Cummings got shot .I suggested to coach on this board to at least have him on the bench for morale ,no idea if he ever read it .
Regarding Cyrus ,his last good game was against Argentina ,now he's a coaches pick just like bleeder was to other past coaches.Guess Hart willing to lose his job just so Cyrus could play infortunate especially in a time where we finally have a glut of good defenders .
