I would like to big up the Warrior Nation members who diligently and expertly brought out the giant flag. It was a sight to behold and they unfurled it quickly just before the anthem started. What a show of national pride, you really don't know the great response that flag gets from all those in the opposing stand and players on the field. Everybody turned and looked, all the camera men starting snapping away and phones just come out recording. When you are in grounds you don't see the reactions, but this act is an important one. Good job again for all those involved.



A caller to WIN moments ago described the pride she felt at seeing this flag unfurled. She identified herself as not being a football person. She saw it as an example of sports rallying people together.

I suggest that there be an exploration of whether the flag can be unfurled for more than the brief period of half time. What other options are available?

Think of the 2022 conversation regarding reparations as the item tabled for future discussion when initially raised for negotiation during talks in 1834. A lot of intere$t has accrued.

Off the top of my head, I can think of 2 options:

1) Either allowing the Flag to Float the entire Uncovered Section, pass it around sideways from section to section

OR

2) We do like the Big Clubs in Europe and place hundreds of mini-signs on seats where WN members can sit and raise in a coordinated fashion, giving the effect of a large Flag, or any Graphic we would like to have... Player's/Team Faces, Players Number, Warriors Logo, etc etc

It was also displayed during the playing of the national anthem. If we score a goal, it is also unfurled. The main problem is dat a lot of non-footballing people does be out there and does ketch ah horrors when we bring it out. Dey does start tuh get on and ting. We eh want to get into de confrontation business.

Yuh know how we doh have no behavior ahready. It would be surprising if it made it all de way across de stadium. Sometimes de simplest tings does end being complicated because of we attitude. But we really do need a section and we do need something like a flag crew/posse who would be responsible for storing de flag, carrying it to and from de stadium, and managing it during de game. Ideally, it should be flown at every home game.

This is where the TTFA and media can work together.

Have a TV/Radio campaign before the game where the theme could be something like "Pass it on".

I love the idea where during the game...the flag is passed on through the crowd.  And I totally get what Tallman sayin when he talk bout people does ketch horrors.  We really doh have a football fan culture.

But we could latch onto to something that resonates with us.  An ad campaign that urges us to touch the flag....each of us.....to pass it on....the vibe, the energy, the spirit of Trinbago...all channeled through that flag....MIGHT....just MIGHT have some success.


And is not like we is strangers to hype.   De same way dey does hype up Army fete or any other fete prior to the actual fete date....on Radio, TV etc....we could do the same for the football.

The flag is a conduit....a demonstration to the world that this is WE....Trinbagonians on full display in all we glory.

Same crowd have no problems doin a Mexican Wave.  Dey could pass on de flag....

Then whappen during the women's home game v. Ecuador? I recall only seeing it at the half.

Tuesday when the anthem was playing I still hadn't 'surfaced' yet. I was too busy trying to evade the hundreds of patrons trying to geh een. Frankly, if there was an occasion or cause for misbehaviour by fans, I thought it would have been Tuesday.

From the lil snippet I saw, the fans might have been better behaved than one segment of the protective services. Just one policewoman alone was carrying on bad. In 5 minutes she threatened to arrest a soldier and proclaimed to have taken off her weapon because she was being "nice".

She by herself was playing badjohn. SM frigging H.

Despite de fact that she end up 'darlin' me, it was exclusively her ignorance that caused me to miss our opening attempt on goal.

Once again, the TTFA failed at event management and protocol. It really should NOT be that hard. As a starter, doh vest the police with discretion that impacts fundamental constituencies. There should be organisational decision-makers, at the points of entry, who deal with protocol. If a problem of conduct or safety arises, then that should rightly become the province of Babylon, but failing that ... oh gorm! What is the benefit of having police behaving in an arbitrary and capricious manner?

Good points.

If our media wasn't so pliant, some of them would express their well-founded grouses to the TTFA.

I watched media personnel pleading to get in to the event even as their media passes and lanyards hung glaringly around their necks. Babylon was playing selective as if outside a selective nightclub. Allyuh could pass, but not dem. No, not you but you etc. I watch C News reach and geh in after a lil sweet talk ... bypassing some of their professional colleagues that couldn't geh in despite sweet talk or no sweet talk. Truth be told, most just stood there looking something between impassively to incredulously at the ignorance they were witnessing.

Media and the fed have to smoothen out that arrangement. I understand there was another media access, but if the police eh educated as to the variables, doh expect them to apply them sensibly.

Some ah dem same SPORTT ppl say de buck starts and stops with de fed. Also some a dem say, dey cyah overrride police authority ... and dat de police came and hijack de scenes. I see a fella from SPORTT trying to reason wid de police ... to little to no avail. Dat eh suppose to be he wuk. Inefficient arrangement.

Ah man geh up in parliament today and say he geh turn away at de gates because he is UNC. Also in the mix, several high profile personalities geh ruff up to geh in. Plus word is there was a hole in de fence that was located to circumvent de wait.

Somebody need to wake up. Planning for de Hex needs to be much better.

The teams walk out and we stand up for the Anthems and greetings from the dignitaries. Last few games when they announced the heads of state and the government ministers a loud boo would be heard from the crowd. This rounds it was a big cheer for Dr. Rowley and the loudest cheer went to Russel Latapy who greeted the players as well.

I would like to big up the Warrior Nation members who diligently and expertly brought out the giant flag. It was a sight to behold and they unfurled it quickly just before the anthem started. What a show of national pride, you really don't know the great response that flag gets from all those in the opposing stand and players on the field. Everybody turned and looked, all the camera men starting snapping away and phones just come out recording. When you are in grounds you don't see the reactions, but this act is an important one. Good job again for all those involved.

Nicely done Big Mag. Nice pic.
Dem fellas Gally & Ron La Forest feelin' the need for appreciation too as BraveHart makes them currently feel that he is sucking up all the oxygen of attention and compounds their feeling of irrelevance as coaches.
Good that you were able to sooth that feeling of Renraw-initiated persecution, neglect and abandonment that Renraw, Uncle Tim have managed to institutionalize.
They may have wounds, but hopefully a new day (with the end of Uncle Tim) will help them to heal. As Steve David said on his show to Gally: "Let it go" bro.
