"DWarriorMan, have you read this thread yet?"

I always thought that it was solely the Haitians who were responsible for the infamous 2-1 result.  Wow, I learned something today (thanks for that info).  As far as TTFF is concern, there is a saying in the US that goes something like this:

"We were Robbed, Hoodwinked and Bamboozled!!!"

commentator said Glasgow has a strike rate of 33.3%....and then laughs people are de greatest

"Dey should create a proper infrastructure and environment so that we can have a vibrant sport industry"...Tallman

In response: I am not saying that the gov't should take over proceedings but suggesting that they play a more active role.

Location and cost are two main factors; however, it can be resolved with effort from the gov't, ttff and ppl of TnT.

The government needs to be proactive in handling sports and treat it as a major priority instead of a second class citizen by providing funding or incentives.  Additionally, it must provide continued support and not for the sport to be a one time thing.  TTFF needs a marketing image - overhaul if you will - with all the controversy that surround them for quite some time, advertising, PR, community service projects, just to get their name out there as being active.  Even if the two parties previously mentioned were to work things out with reference to each other and the general public, it is up to the public to go out and support the games.

I can see England, Japan or Spain coming to play TnT at "de stadium," it can happen, but we need to put our house in order before we welcome guests.

Great discussion..didn't even notice the title changed until writing this thing.  The following points were taken off of a t-shirt that was sold by ZOOM Caribbean at Long Circular Mall many years ago.  I bought it because of its obvious history lesson and that it looked good for a couple outings.  I did not write all of the points because of time (lack thereof) and those that are mentioned may have been quoted previously from past postings; anyhow, here lies my shilling's worth

The Evolution of Mas

The origin of Carnival is to be found in the ancient pagan custom of the Saturnalia - a custom which was modified by the Church of Rome to be a two-day festival before Ash Wednesday, when Christianity were allowed to pay "farewell" to the devil, pomp, vanity, and lust of the flesh before entering upon the period of fasting and repentance during the forty days of Lent.  The word itself is derived from the Latin Carne vale - farewell to the flesh.  The festival spread to those countries of the New World where the Roman Catholic Church held sway as the dominant religion, and so in this way, Carnival came to Trinidad.

Not indulged in any great extent in Spanish times, the festival was given tremendous impetus and encouragement on the arrival of the French planters in 1783, and continued with much of the enthusiasm after the capitulation to the British forces in 1797.

...Dame Lorraine - said to mean fashionable lady, was an elaborate and grotesque parody of the way French planters conducted themselves at their stylish balls.  Mockery of their masters' dancing eccentricities had always been a common form of private entertainment among slaves many years before this, and the Dame Lorraine performance formalised this practice into public theatre for a paying audience on a Sunday night of Carnival.

ps..the Dame Lorraine festival came about because Canboulary was banned in 1881 by Captain Baker in the famous Canboulay Riots.
