TTFF coaches go unpaid as Sport Ministry shrugs
… Harford blames Warner’s influence for gov’t snub
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868).


The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation’s (TTFF) coaches are going unpaid and its debts are mounting as the Sport Ministry’s recent apparent indifference to the local football body threatens to create a crisis within the nation’s most popular sport.

Anthony Harford, chairman of the TTFF’s marketing firm All Sport Promotion, claimed that he submitted an invoice for $3.4 million to the Sport Ministry on 23 May 2012, which was meant to cover expenditure for the men’s Olympic team and women’s Under-17 team. The men’s and women’s teams competed in March and May respectively.

A further budget of $1.1 million was given to the Sport Ministry to take the Under-17 and Under-20 boys’ teams through their respective Caribbean qualifying tournaments.

However, according to Harford, Sport Minister Anil Roberts has not so much as responded to their hand-delivered letters much less fulfilled his alleged promise to the national youth teams.

"For now, the TTFF remains in a precarious position—shunned by FIFA, snubbed by the Government and its former Special Advisor, at odds with its past players and unable to pay its present employees."

If this had been last year, I would have said that FIFA would soon reinstate their funding. However, unless Jack provided absolute proof of the Haiti payment, they may play hardball. The link between TTFF and their Special Adviser may have been tenuous, but there was never any doubt that Jack was in charge.

As much as I have no sympathy for those who allowed these events to happen, the current crop of players and coaches -and AllSport - should be paid.

The concept of non political interference as promoted by FIFA is really pointless. Non payment of promised funds is just as much political interference as disbanding a failing football federation or installing a new administration. At least the latter is proactive.

TTFF are just fiddling while T&T football crashes and burns.

So Anton, Charles, Eve, Gorden, King, Rougier, Marcelle, McComie, Puellard, Fuentes and Watson eh get paid ?

Then allyuh leave nah. !!! I dare you...

Still them bastards will not leave.

It good....

We hearing this cry over 20 years now and still man surprise.

It hard to believe men so scared/faithfull to Jack Warner. Imagine he could get de MOS to blank them and still they will not go againt him or stand up.

They even taking jail for him.

We loosing in every tournament and we dont hAve a solid future plan for football, do you really expect to get funds ? especially since it could end up in somebody's pocket ?

Why should the corporate sector support T&T football ? give me one good reason !!

Harford begging for help, but what is he doing to show things on the up ?

If I was a sponsor, why would I support T&T football when they continuing to make the SAME mistakes and walk down the same road (failure).... why ?

Harford and Corneal need to should improvement first, nobody wants to invest in something DEAD or give they money to crooks.

      Breds all these guys are big men,they don't need my advice or anyones advice to tell what they should do,if they not getting paid it simple just leave the job,i walked away from T&T Football since 1989 and have not returned to this day,i am not annoyed with anybody i just thought that i had reached the limits of where i could go,everybody in Football is still my friends,the game has done a lot for me it's my reason i'm still involved with it.
       In our Football you have to learn to live with the good and bad and i must say i've experienced both and glad to say the good times outweighed what ever deficiencies there were,i can't let Football be the be all and end all for me if something not working for you just move on.What sad is to see what Football has come to in the country all because of this present generation of players,Football never depended on government to fund it as they are doing now,everybody feels they know all the answers and can run Football,Football in T&T will get worse before it gets better.
