|Sep-05-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Ang parallels can be drawn between AFGM and Kap Jimmy is their discipline and lifestyle to keep in GOOD SHAPE. The BTV analysts were marvelling Jimmy couldn't be 36 or 37 years old the way he played.|
Pag CALL of DUTY din, both are willing to serve. Jimmy would probably be called up for the Asian Games, lets lookout for the final line-up. Blatche is already out daw, and officials are appealing for replacement by Douthit.
|Sep-06-14|| ||spawn2: Yup pards, Kap Jimmy making the free throws to help clinch a win for Gilas while AFGM, winning his last game to give the country a respectable finish in the Olympiad based on their seeding:)|
Borrow ko na battlecry ni TF..PUTAK!
|Sep-06-14|| ||torrefan: I am about to finish PACIFIC RIMS by Rafe Bartholomew. Philippine basketball in the eyes of an American. This jeepney-riding guy stayed here in the Philippines for three years, hobnobbing with all sorts of ballers from the far-flung barrios in the islands to PBA stars, to write this book. Quite an enjoyable read!|
|Sep-06-14|| ||pinoymaster77: TF, akala ko yung movie about MEGA robots
and monsters eh book pala.
Meron nga yatang video yan to recap the experiences of the author.
Ika nga ni Kap Jimmy eh 'basketball is in our DNA'.
|Sep-06-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Hope the momentum from the YOG archery gold by Gab Moreno, the 5-gold medal harvest of dragonboat rowers and the recent Gilas showing in Spain eh maging inspirations. Pres. PNoy was a no show again. PSC had 33M budgetted daw per GAA and passed a supplemental budget of 50M, but expecting 30M will be left over which will do to their revolving fund (per DZSR updates) - this covers the airfares, allowances,uniforms, overseas training, equipment etc... Good to hear the 2.5M incentive for Gab Moreno already worked out by the PSC and given out in the send-off, that was quick !|

I hope it becomes an eye-opener. Time to put the money where we could truly <excel>, not just compete. It's baffling that we insist on basketball when there are other sports we can focus our energies on. Let basketball continue but the funding should be commensurate to the achievement. Priorities.

If only WS had a good adviser and allowed him to participate in the SEAG, he could have avoided making enemies with government and could have gained some bonus from the Universiade win.
That what happens when you have a combative adviser whose instincts is to fight off authorities...
|Sep-06-14|| ||lakers4sho: <but the funding should be commensurate to the ROI.>|
Fixed, at least to the eyes of whoever is funding these guys
|Sep-06-14|| ||wordfunph: tsongki Sugar, happy birthday!
|Sep-07-14|| ||pinoymaster77: PYG,
For basketball I dont think theyre getting anything special from PSC in terms of bigger budget. Im not even sure kung priority sport ng PSC, since PSC defines the priority sport as having better chances at getting Olympic gold, like archery,golf,swimming,weightlifting,athletics etc.
Wala tayong magagawa if MVP Group pours in the money to basketball thru the SBP or MVP Foundation, as well as other sports that got attention, like boxing,football,badminton and some Olympic prospects.
|Sep-07-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: But we can do something as fans to pour our attention to other sports that deserve our cheer, not just basketball. Businesses put money on basketball because of the inordinate attention that its fans give it- no matter the result. The more fans, the more returns for the businesses in terms of advertisements, consumption- ROI, in short.|
Look at the case of Wesley So, he competed in Chess WOrld Cups but the amount of mileage and monetary support was measly, even alm-like, despite the prestige of the event and Wesley's achievement. Gilas's achivement for example has been done many times chess-wise, in that many of our players had played in World Cups and got eliminated in the very first round. But we have some exceptional cases wherein our players advanced beyond the first eliminations, hence our chessers achieved more than our ballers.
As for government support, basketball can do without it precisely because the sport is so famous and the fans so fanatical that sponsors and players can generate money out of the game itself. So very unlike chess and many other sports, which only get noticed when they win intl acclaim, and afterwards forgotten again. Ideally, the government should identify these games where we have shown great potential and wins (intl medals) and put some money there. As 'mere' fans, what can we do? Maybe put more attention to these sports and perhaps, one fan at a time, the attention we put would be good enough for both government and private sector to notice and provide the needed support. Also maybe, for a start, we fans should view our so-called achievements in basketball to the harsh light of objectivity and react accordingly.
|Sep-07-14|| ||pinoymaster77: How can I say, I grew up since HS days pag sa forms eh kung sports, matik ang sagot ko 'chess and basketball' pero magkaiba talaga ang dating ng game sa fans. Iba talaga ang 'highs' and excitement pag b-ball eh, like last time nakanood ng Gilas game vs Qatar sa MOA Arena nung FIBA Asia eh iba ang atmosphere eh.|
But since my younger kids also took up volleyball and football eh began to understand and appreciate those sports better.
The PANA /NSA for Archery is doing a GOOD JOB, 4 months palang pala new set of officers, they're having archery clinics sa Malls, working out inclusion in the UAAP and have a 6 year plan all the way to the 2020 Olympics. Dragonboat and similar affliates (canoe/kayak) are doing well under Ms. Jonee Go and related NSAs.
Pati PSC/POC top honchos also want to veer more away from basketball sana, pero ganun pa din eh yung basketball fan base. Saka MVP also is biggest private benefactor to POC/PSC.
|Sep-08-14|| ||spawn2: They say the mid 70's to the early 80's can be considered as the golden age of Philippine Chess. Since I was too young to remember;), I would like to ask those who were already at the right age what was chess like during those times?|
|Sep-08-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Kung may account si Iggy dito eh ang kanyang 'chess memory' would come in handy sana. Saka si Iskuba maybe can share.|
Ako eh miron lang nuon at barangay player pero HS days ko yung 1972 ba yun na championship nila Fischer vs Spassky, na may adjournment pa.
1974 Nice Olympiad was also good for PHI chess, sino ba mga kasama ni GM Torre sa team.
Pero si Joey malamang sa 80s pa umusbong, kasi nung early working years ko eh hustler pa siya sa Non-Masters circuit, madalas magpa tournament nuon yung Checkmate ni Ms. Mila Emperado. Madalas magbakbakan for the champion's purse nuon sila Joey, Nelson Mariano III (yung naging GM), BongV, Allan Sasot, Enrique Paciencia, Jerry Nodado.
Not sure which years nag entry sila IM Rico ang Glenn B's swashbuckling variations.
|Sep-08-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Siguro magugustuhan basahin eto ni torrefan na avid book reader. Eh WHY NOT embark on working a book naman like 'Pacific boards' on the Philippine brand of CHESS? Aba,rich in chess culture din daw tayo o, mag immerse and research sa Luneta and other chess hotbeds all over the archipelago. Sino ba may PGNs ng immortal games ng likes nila IM Ruben Rodriguez and Andronico Yap?|

"For me, a foreigner who lived in the Philippines, fell in love with its basketball culture, and came to see the country as a second home, watching Gilas play swelled me with the kind of fullhearted pride I’ve felt only a few times before. Gilas showed that Philippine basketball — this thing that I’d felt was special since I first landed at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in 2005, that I’d dedicated much of my career to — was not just a quirky hoops human interest story but instead a brand of world-class basketball that charmed and impressed fans all over the globe. Basically, Gilas validated me. And I imagine that millions of Filipinos felt a similar fulfillment last week, only several times greater, because in my case Philippine basketball is an interest that I care deeply about, and for them, it’s in their bones."

|Sep-10-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Would like to commend ETCF / spawn2 for the successful program with the FilChi schools thru the CFBC, after the clinic, some of the schools have tapped the ETCF Trainors. Sana more schools also do that, and they can set-up their own school league, and the CFBC can sponsor tournaments.|
Sana matuloy and mag proliferate pa yung ibang 'chess-in-schools' projects.
|Sep-11-14|| ||pinoymaster77: It looks like Marcus will get his shot at the Asiad! And team-up sila ni Junemar in trying to limit Haddadi. Sila Gabe and Dillinger bahala kay Bahrami and sila Jimmy/LA kay Kamrani !|
|Sep-11-14|| ||pinoymaster77: This article makes it official from the Delegation line-up meeting today in Korea.|
On the 2nd article, whats this, IN DEMAND na Gilas, pumipila na naturalized players! Pero, its up to Coach Chot, looks like he's gungho with Blatche's skills set, where he can 'confuse' the opposition !
|Sep-13-14|| ||spawn2: Happy with Douthit being given a contract extension. Am expecting him to play at a higher level in Asia because of two things:|
1. He wants to prove himself
2. He was able to rest his weary body
Goodluck Marcus & Gilas!
|Sep-13-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Meanwhile while there's lull in international events after the Olympiad, AFGM supports chess thru the ETCF and appearances in local events.|
Next maybe in Nov, reportedly matuloy yung 2 POC/PSC Intl events to be staged here, probably AFGM will see action in at least 1 event

|Sep-13-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Touching on that 'chess-in-schools', if tama pagkaintindi na the previous DepEd Memo from then Sec Lapus is still valid, and its a matter of funding.|
Then is it feasible na mag champ sa Senate si Sen Koko then sa Congress sila Cong. Bambol, Manny and Butch' brother,then propose a line item for DepEd in the ON-GOING hearings / meetings for the 2015 budget? Then sa DepEd ang point man eh USec Umali who sits in the NCFP Board.
It can be limited to the 'central' school in each city of the Philippines, that would greatly narrow it down, will probably be in the millions, not billions.
|Sep-13-14|| ||torrefan: In the school of one of my children they were taught chess. The instructor told them that the one who had captured more pieces wins the game.|
|Sep-17-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Tagilid pa pala yung pag replace ni Douthit kay Blatche, kung 11 man line-up baka may ma displace (Gary o Dillinger?)|

To be honest, i am against putting chess in the school curriculum because it is my belief that instructions should be simplified. It will also cost the government a lot of resources (human and financial).
But yes, chess-in-school as PE and sports.
