AS LONG time frustrated football fan in this basketball crazy country, I am delighted that the long time planned Philippine Football League (PFL) has been finally executed. The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) with the help of the brains of the former premier football league in our country, the United Football League (UFL), finally launched the nationwide league at the posh Shangri La Hotel in Taguig (not in Makati as earlier reported). There is so much excitement but there are still so many questions and concerns left unanswered or unresolved. First, the PFF has a long history of organizational failures in running tournaments. I think this PFL is too big for them. They should concentrate in running the national teams and the development of the sports all over the country and give the running of the PFL to the people who successfully created and ran the UFL. Call me a devil’s advocate but the launching of the PFL itself has not caught any attention of the national media, except for the usual football writers. Their stories were not even given big spaces deserving for the launching of the Philippine National League. Even the social media were dying to get information about the launching. I was looking for stories about the launching two days before the event in Shangri La. I was told to go to the PFF website. The information from the PFF website about the PFL was stale and several weeks old. They then posted a story about the launching a day before the launching. Who the hell is in charge of the PFL PR? For the love of the beautiful game I always write stories about football. Now with the PFL, I am so delighted to write anything about the league. But what will I write when I could not even get information from the PFF? Someone is not doing his job properly. Who is that someone? Please fire him. It is just the start of the PFL. This is just one of the problems. This is not even a big problem. But if the PFF could not even fix this small problem, how could they fix bigger problems? (firstname.lastname@example.org)
