I have remained silent over the preparations for the SEA Games in the hope that our athletes may not be subjected to undue distractions. Suffice it to say that I am rooting for our athletes, despite the many problems I have witnessed with Philippine Sports. Reform Philippine Sports stands committed in support of the country’s efforts to host and compete in the incoming SEA Games.
The Coup Pals of the POC are digging in, intent on making life miserable for the new President, Bambol Tolentino. They fired the first volley yesterday when they disregarded Bambol’s call for an Executive Board meeting on a variety of reasons. The power struggle in the POC is set to come to a head. Whether it will be before the SEA Games or after, it’s just a matter of time.
