    Masiado kasing respectable ang futbol.

    Tignan ninyo ang billiards at'saka ang pamamaril.
    Medyo may lufets naman ang Pinoy dun 'di ba? Parang
    kapag mas kaduda-duda ang bisyo, mas mabagsik ang Pinoy.

    Unless magkaroon siguro tayo ng presidente or sports commissioner na football fanatic, ganyan na lagi.

    Imbes na i-promote parang nadi-discourage pa. For example, sa Marikina Sports Center, bawal gamitin yung pitch kahit 2 lang kayo, kelangan magbayad ng P 500/hour.

    Kung gusto mong ng live telecast ng World Cup, bayad ka ng P 6K sa Sky or P 3K sa Dream :shocked:.

    correct fafa! in football,the grassroots development is better in visayas and mindanao than luzon,sadly.but what is needed is money and sponsors for countrywide regular tournaments.this can be done.the talk amongst football clubs here in manila is there should be a semi-pro league in 2 years time.hopefully!

    cycling: siguro same as above na rin.just my 2 cents.but surely,there are many,many undiscovered talents out there.Mt. Everest nga kaya eh!:beer:

    makoy,
    I agree with the football thing. I always thought that it is really possible that a youth from one of our provinces could make it big as a professional in europe like so many of the brazilians. what if a kid in its teens could make it as even as a bench player and later develope in europe,diba big change sa buhay nya yun.

    oo, kaya dapat the government should train our youths into very good athletes para maidagdag sa mga workers natin abroad,mas malaki pa kikitahin nila, leading to more remittances and more money for our not so good politicians to spend :) plus sisikat ang Pilipino:cool:

    yup,look at Pacquiao. Just imagine Filipinos playing professionals in europe and maybe someone making it as big as beckham or ronaldo. eh ang popularity ng football worldwide so just think of the opportunity the kid would have worldwide.

    and i'm sure there will be Filipino following everywhere even though they're not football fans

    In my elementary days. I always dreamed of flying off to Scandinavia where the Gothia and Helsinki cups were held. My fellow players from Colegio San Agustin, De La Salle Zobel, and Ateneo always finished respectively. Even winning those tournaments a couple of times. Problem was, there was no support from the government whatsoever. Their parents shelled out for the trips. Lots of talented players could not make it because they couldn't afford the trip. Those times that they won (forgot which years; the trophies are still in the CSA PhysEd Department) were the only times the government paid them any mind.

    Seldom do players actually pursue the sport after college as there aren't any pro leagues to go to unlike other sports. The semi-pro league organized in the mid-90's drowned out due to poor crowd attendance mainly due to lack of promotion and so so sponsorship.

    Hope the planned semi-pro league will not falter out this time. :cool:

    Let's forget about govt support
    Una , they dont have the money , and pangalawa, if they do , sobra nila gulo ( look at BAP/POC )
    Private support ang kailngan, preferably corporate
