  • Sports Administration Fiasco

    Two of Jamaica’s sporting organizations, the Jamaica Netball Association (JNA), and the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF), will be arranging elections for new leaders very shortly. The president of the JNA, Paula Daley-Morris has opted not to seek re-election. This has resulted in (to me) a surprising amount of vitriol...
  • Tired of the JFF griping about lack of resources

    The inability of our Under 23 male footballers to qualify for the next Olympics by failing to beat fellow Caribbean neighbours Dominica and St Kitts is another embarrassment in the management of our football by the present Jamaica Football Federation (JFF). The array of “stars” on the team assembled...
  • Underneath The Athletic’s Fiasco

    As someone born in the Fabulous Forties, I was brought up with the clear understanding that sports was mainly for fun and exercise. The idea of a “professional” sportsman/sportswoman just never came up. Competition enhanced sports, and at the end, the Trophy represented the ultimate prize. But with time...
  • Limited resources no excuse for sport administrators’ bungling

      The “title” Brand Jamaica is an interesting one. To me it signifies that the word Jamaica invokes a feeling of awe and envy when it is read or heard by non-Jamaicans. “Brand Jamaica” is mouthed by entrepreneurs, politicians, sport administrators who want to convince us of the impact...
  • Needed: A real effective leader

      Sports in Jamaica takes centre stage as the summer approaches. The local football competition closed last Monday night with the finals of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) at our National Stadium. There was a fairly large number of fans present for the showdown between the two best...
  • Please, we must rescue our children!

      The hand-wringing and moaning of past students and friends of Calabar High School after the video of students of the school (as well as an adult who appeared to be conducting the “choir”), chanting anti-KC lyrics, smacks of the highest form of hypocrisy known to man. Anyone with...
  • Future of West Indies cricket in the hands of 12

        On the 24th of March this year, 12 West Indians will decide the future of West Indies cricket. On that day there will be an election for the presidency of Cricket West Indies (CWI), the group that will decide the path to be taken as the people...
  • Rescue our athletes from abuse, please!

      The Children’s Advocate has been noted to be a part of a move to rid the sports world of coaches who abuse athletes. From the beginning of our dominance in athletics there have been rumours/whispers of coaches who groom athletes to the extent where obvious mind boggling talent...
  • We have the formula of world champions; all that’s needed now is finance

          The year 2018 has come to an end, cementing the fact that anyone with a genetic background that can be traced to Jamaica has the potential to be a world class athlete. It doesn’t matter what sport you are considering. All that a human with a...
