I have been thinking of this for a while, not because I see anything particularly wrong. However, I have been concerned what it says about Afro-Trinis because of the level of total incompetence they have shown.

Doh forget Azaad Mohammed-Khan is the Interim General Secretary and he is just as incompetent. Plus it seems dat nobody cyar find him.

And Ramesh Ramdhan did contest de elections, but didn't "win".

Maybe it's the same reason why there are only Afro Trini in the NAAA.. But the cricket board tells another story.

Azaad Mohammed-Khan was GS and now is Justin Latapy. And why yuh think they cah find him, he fed up of de wasy things getting run.

Ramesh Ramdhan have nothing to do with the current TTFA.

Maybe if they bring other races and get them involve businesses will start investing more in football because a lot of businesses is owned by other races.

Food for thought.

Excellent point Sam!! It pains me to see this organisation run by people who are both under-educated and lacking in business skill, But this is T&T where incompetence prospers and yes-men hold high positions for a few dollars more.

Mohammed Issa? Jamal Shabazz? a person who committed high treason and should be either dead or still in prison, but for the incompetence of our then govt and the legal brainthrust that was advising it.

Dexter Skeene, though having a tertiary degree,  has proven that his management skill is typically Trini since we have an extremely apathetic electorate (regardless whether national , local or organisation based election). Dexter is incompetent! He has been running a welfare league for God knows how long and has the audacity to call it a pro league.

Although Cricket is by far more properly run, and it aint really a "pro-league" it is highly corrupt, in my opinion,ever since Bassarath has been running it.

Therein lies our dilemma in T&T. Corrupt or incompetence, pick your poison!

Nothing to do with race, it's greed and more greed...

The dictator and his cabal can run it properly but he sold out, so on the surface it appears to be incompetence.. but it's really corruption and outside interference ...

They have demonstrated that they can hire a capable women's coach but because of corruption they choose not hire the best men's coach nor retain Hart but sabotage him and the team..

With cricket it's the same thing, corruption and money passing from the wicb to keep down trini cricket... no different.. my choices are Murray, dinas and Ganga but they are not corrupt so they are being kept out just like Hart..

He lost the election because he didn't dip into his pocket and pay off the right people...

What do you expect from a set of house negroes and Indians... same in cricket with BassRAT and his crew, they all sell out and race is not the problem.. it's the mentality of the people in charge, corruption is their best friend, not patriotism, the people and our nation...

In this School


This is what I see around football



This question going on for decades. I don't think anyone has positioned it to be like this honestly.
TTFA is a different story. As an organization diversity is a valid pursuit if in the interest of the organization's goals. Maybe they aren't thinking that far ahead right now...

Plain talk bad manners....it's simply because the majority or individuals interested in the sport are Afro Trinis....no need to mentioned cricket cuz we all know what it is and what it always have been. So no need to over analyze cuz we know we country. So race all aside, we just have a bunch of ppl being misled by a leader who shows his incompetency to elevate the sport on a national level and they unwillingness to rock the boat is no surprise cuz of we "eat ah food" mentality.

I wonder how you made that conclusion. When ever I go to a game I see loads of non Africans and by that I mean Indians and people of other ethnic backgrounds.

So in terms of support being mainly African, that is curious.

I would like to know how you deduced that.

Of course most matches I have watched are in POS.

That's facts not a conclusion....don't take it outta context...the thread speaks to the administrative aspect of the game...so has nothing to public support.

Terry Fenwick, Krishendath Kuarsingh, Dinanath Ramnarine and Ramesh Ramdhan was very interested.

Even if de majority is Afro-Trini, we have other races who can and willing to help out.
