The moron Jeff Tamayo should resign for insulting PH paddlers

As the media had reported the past week, the bemedalled Philippine Dragon Boat Federation (PDBF)  team will neither receive any official remuneration for their winnings in Florida, USA nor get the chance to represent the country in the 2011 Southeast Asian Games and the 2014 Asian Games simply because they are “not a recognized national sports association (NSA) by the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) and the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).”

This is very shameful! It is very disgusting to learn about this. Hindi nagagawa ng pamahalaan na kilalanin ang kakayahan ng Philippine Dragon Boat teamdahil lamang sa hidwaan sa pagitan ng mga sports associations.  Nakakahiya para sa bansa!

The moron Jeff Tamayo should resign for insulting our athletes!

Last October, retired Col Jeff Tamayo, POC board director, expressed extreme disbelief at the paddlers performance, saying that “our paddlers were super men and women, or were on super steroids.” Just last week, he said: “They (the PDBF squad) have the body, they have everything, but as we all know, ampaw na lang ‘yun.” To add insult to injury, he also urged the triumphant athletes to just retire ad give way to younger paddlers. For this very obnoxious remarks, Jeff Tamayo should resign out of shame. 

Come to think of it, intramurals in the field of sports is not really new. For two years, the Philippine basketball team was not able to participate in competitions sanctioned by the International Basketball Federation because of the bickering between BAP and the Philippine Olympic Committee.

As a result, the Philippines was disqualified from joining the 2005 SEA Games (which the country hosted) and the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Qatar. During the time when basketball leaders are squabbling with each other, other teams especially those from Middle East like Jordan, Lebanon, and Iran have already emerged as new powerhouses.

When will our sports leaders like Jeff Tamayo learn their lesson? Needless to say, they are the reason why Philippine sports is insuch a sorry state.

    Bakit hindi nila bigyan ang mga hinirasyon na mga paddlers? Jeff Tamayo have a point naman. Paano kung puro matanda na ang paddlers dyan? hindi naman pwedi na sila-sila nalang palagi.

    Ang mahirap sa atin na mga Pilipino ay puro kuminto, tapos wala kayo magagawa kundi gumawa ng isyo. Alam naman natin na puro politika at kayabangan ang nasa likod ng gobyerno natin. Kaya tuloy ang maliit na isyo ay lumalaki dahil sa pang oodjok nyo!

    Mamuhay na nga kayo ng marangal!

      Magandang araw. Hindi mo naintindihan ang punto ng sinulat ko. Wala akong binanggit na hindi dapat sanayin ang bagong henerasyon ng paddlers. Kahit anong galing ng atleta, dadating pa rin ang panahon na magreretiro iyon. Sa kaso ng Dragon Boat team: sabihin na nating may edad na sila, ibig sabihin ba nun dapat nang balewalain ang kanilang kakayahan (na siyang ginagawa ni Tamayo)?

      Ayaw na sana kita patulan dahil wala namang kuwenta yang sinulat mo. Una, paano mo nasabing hindi namumuhay ng marangal ang mga nambabatikos kay G. Tamayo? Pangalawa, hindi kami ang gumagawa ng isyu. Karapatan ng mga taong batikusin ang mga maling pahayag ni Tamayo.

      Pakiusap: Pilipino ka naman di ba? Sana ayusin mo naman ang pagsusulat mo ng komento. Nakakahiya. 🙂
