  1. Just shows how disjointed domestic football is. A lack of a proper league structure, too many independent tournaments, lack of rules and regulations and you have players playing for multiple clubs like what Caligdong is doing as per this article. It really is messed up and doesn't look like it will get fixed/organized anytime soon!
