PVL: I don’t care –- Almadro on bashers

Ateneo-Motolite head coach Oliver Almadro isn’t bothered with the flak he received from fans on social media after giving Deanna Wong a tongue-lashing Saturday in a straight sets loss to BanKo in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference. “I don’t care!” Almadro quickly answered even before reporters could finish their question about him trending on social media as he entered the pressroom for a post-game interview Sunday. Twitter went abuzz Saturday night following a clip during Ateneo-Motolite’s timeout where the very animated Almadro lashed out at Wong as the Lady Eagles trailed the Perlas Spikers, 7-11, in the third set with BanKo controlling the match, 2-0. Grabe naman. pic.twitter.com/H3CtjifrnI — PINOY BALIBOLISTA (@pinoybalibol) November 10, 2018 Fans went to social media to express their criticisms on Almadro. But the mentor, who steered the Blue Eagles to three straight UAAP titles, just brushed everything off.      “Few people don’t matter for me, what’s important for me is I use them as our strength,” said Almadro, whose squad recovered from a 24-26, 22-25, 16-25 loss to the Perlas Spikers with a 25-23, 16-25, 25-14, 25-20 win over Adamson-Akari. “I use them as a creative criticism for me and of course I don’t put energy in the things I don’t have control rather I put all my energy at things I have control, which is my team so yun ang importante.” Almadro said that even before the game his team was already dealing with off-court issues. “Natatawa ako kasi hindi naman nila alam ‘yung problema namin e, we have internal problems prior to the match medyo pagod kasi kami. Maraming players ang hindi dapat a-attend yesterday because of biglaang ‘Binhi’ it’s a school activity so talaga three players, four players will not come yesterday so everybody’s bothered,” he explained. “So they don’t know Deanna is bothered, everybody’s bothered pero good thing, Ateneo community, Ateneo professors, Binhi for mentors are really supporting the program so they opted to finish the Binhi earlier so nakapunta lahat pero of course bothered.” The mentor admitted that he took some time reading the fans’ reactions but kept firm on his action to discipline the UAAP Season 80 Best Setter.    “I read all of that but what matters for me sabi ko nga I will sacrifice my kindness so that my players will know what is right or wrong because life is cruel if you will just be kind all the time, they will not understand what is right or wrong,” he said. “As a parent sometimes I have to sacrifice kindness because life is cruel in the end because they have to know is right or wrong.” He scolded Wong, Almadro added, so that the playmaker will know her mistakes for her to address it. Wong only had 13 excellent sets out of 64 attempts against BanKo with five markers and seven digs. To make amends for her subpar performance, Wong tallied 28 excellent sets with four markers against the Lady Falcons. “Now Deanna is in the right position now. Deanna is gambling with the set now. We are receiving right today, so ibig sabihin we learned yesterday,” Almadro pointed out. Upon learning about the bashing he received, Wong apologized to Almadro, who then told his ward not to worry about it. “Deanna cried to me ‘coach sorry’. Bakit ka magso-sorry? It's my job,” he said. “And it’s your job to play now what's important is kaya mong bitbitin yun kaya mong dalhin.” “And what did she do now? She played well, it’s because hindi kami nagpapa-bother sa mga nandiyan. What’s important for us are those who believe in us, those who fight for us win or lose,” Almadro added. “I will always reiterate to my players right motivation, right motivation every time because ‘pag pinasukan ng wrong motivation ang utak mawawala sa pwesto, hindi kikilos. It’s because walang meaning sa ginagawa so kailangan talaga right motivation.” Almadro still gave some kind words to his bashers.   “Those who do not support us when we lose, it’s okay with us. We still pray for them,” he said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Panelo shrugs off De Lima’s new potshot at Duterte’s drug war

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo on Sunday shrugged off Senator Leila de Lima's remarks on the government's anti-drug war. "What do you expect from De Lima? She's in jail, and she complains a lot," Panelo said in a radio interview with Radyo Inquirer. De Lima, a staunch critic of the Duterte administration, has been detained since February 2017 for alleged involvement in the illegal drugs trade. "Sasabihin niya walang namamatay na drug...pag namatay naman bakit pinatay? Bakit namatay? Wala. Pabayaan mo na siya diyan, hayaan mo na siya diyan muna (She said no one is being killed. If someone is killed, she'll ask why. Let's just ignore her)," he added. Panelo was asked...Keep on reading: Panelo shrugs off De Lima’s new potshot at Duterte’s drug war.....»»

PBA: No regrets for Vic Manuel as Alaska ousted from Commissioner s Cup

Vic Manuel's magical Commissioner's Cup run is over. Emerging as one of the top offensive threats for the Alaska Aces, he scored 20 points in 11 straight games, including a career-high 35 markers against the Magnolia Hotshots. His flawless moves on the post have been a revelation, mentored by one of the best centers the league has ever had, Danny Ildefonso. During the eliminations, the 'Muscle Man' normed 24.2 ppg on 58.2 FG%, 6.4 rpg, and 0.9 apg, which made him a frontrunner for the Best Player of the Conference award. However, things started to change in the semis where his 20-point streak was cut short abruptly in Game 1 against San Miguel, where he just tallied 16 points.  Not a bad outing, really.  Unfortunately for Manuel, it became a turning point in the race which counts statistics through the semifinals, thus elevating reigning MVP June Mar Fajardo to the overall leader in the tally, including a 26-point, 12-rebound, two-assist, two-block performance in the series closer. For Manuel, an earlier exit than what he had expected was not a problem for him, as he proved himself to one of being the most feared weapons of coach Alex Compton's balanced attack. "Pero yun nga sabi ko, proud talaga ko sa team namin, sa mga teammates ko, lahat kami nagtulong tulong kasi hindi lang naman ako. Lahat kami nagtulong tulong para makarating dito." "Masaya na ako, naipakita ko. Okay na ako doon. Yun nga sabi ko, nakapasok kami sa semis. Kahit na na-short kami. Ayun lang kuntento na ako. Masaya na ako," the hulking forward added after the game. With key guys like Calvin Abueva (suspension), minutes and assists leader Chris Banchero (family emergency) and original import Antonio Campbell (called up to play in the NBA Summer League), Manuel was proud his team was able to hold the fort and fought tooth-and-nail against the reigning champs. Despite the great performance this conference, the 6'4 forward dispelled questions that his showing has elevated him to the upper echelon, vowing to keep grinding until he proves himself otherwise and avoids injury. Being one of the focal points of the Alaska offense in their rough-and-tumble semis, Manuel was given the go-signal by coaches Compton and Ildefonso to pace the attack, and that has given him a renewed sense of pride for himself. Now that his Commissioner's Cup journey is over, Manuel hopes to be included in the national team's replacement squad for the second window of the FIBA Qualifiers and finally don the 'Pilipinas' jersey for five-on-five, full-court basketball. "Bakit hindi? Syempre tutulong tayo sa bansa natin. Ready lang ako kung tatawagin nila ako. Syempre willing naman ako para maglaro sa Pilipinas. Sa 3x3 nga, ininvite nila ako naglaro ako, doon pa sa Gilas? Syempre, mas masarap maglaro sa 5-on-5, alam natin yun." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

PBA: Arwind Santos, Vic Manuel just waiting for Gilas call

ANTIPOLO, RIZAL -- Have no fear, because Arwind and Vic are here? The two opponents may be at war now, but their hearts have agreed on one thing: suiting up for Gilas Pilipinas.  Commissioner Cup semis opponents Arwind Santos and Vic Manuel have put their names into the proverbial hat of possible Gilas replacements during the second window of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifers as 10 different players have been suspended by the world's basketball governing body for a different number of games. The San Miguel forward, who had last represented the Philippines with Powerade Team Pilipinas back in 2009, is very open to the possbility of suiting up again for flag and country. He also relished at the possibility of playing with San Miguel teammates June Mar Fajardo, a current Gilas pool member, and Marcio Lassiter, a member of the first batch of Gilas players. "Okay lang naman ako. Wala namang problema. Lalo na't kasama ko sina Marcio, sina June Mar. Okay sa akin. At saka para sa ano natin. Mga nawala natin. Siyempre, sino pa maglalaro sa atin? Kung kailangan, sige. Nandoon lang naman ako," the 37-year old Santos said.  Meanwhile, for Vic Manuel, the conference's revelation, having 'Pilipinas' emblazoned across his jersey has always been a dream for him much like any basketball player, and with it, the probablity of making it has increased as Alaska head honcho Dickie Bachmann has provided his blessings for him to join the squad if called upon. "Kung mabibigyan ng chance, bakit hindi? Siyempre malaking bagay yon. Siyempre ako rin dream ko rin makapaglaro para sa bansa. Siyempre, ayun, gusto ko rin makatulong sa kanila."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

FIBA: Guiao blames Kickert for starting Gilas-Boomers brawl

MANILA, Philippines --- Former national team head coach Yeng Guiao is not convinced that the unfortunate Gilas-Boomers brawl is entirely the fault of the Pinoys. The Australians had a hand in it too, and they should apologize as well, particularly Daniel Kickert. Guiao believes Kickert triggered the whole thing, which is what Gilas head coach Chot Reyes is saying. "What the Gilas players did was, to me, a natural human instinct in that situation. So, actually ako, I think it’s the Australians who need to apologize, not the Gilas team because it’s Kickert’s action that started the whole thing," Guiao said Wednesday after a PBA game featuring his NLEX team and Magnolia. "I do not believe in Luc Longley saying it’s Chot Reyes. Wala namang ginawa si Chot eh. Yung sinabi niya, well. .. That’s again, maybe, that’s debatable. But what Kickert did was the trigger of everything," he added. Kickert hit RR Pogoy with an elbow to the face after Pogoy shoved Chris Goulding to the floor following an offensive foul. But Guiao says Kickert never should have reacted in the first place and the Boomers are just looking for someone to blame after the fracas. "Yung nangyari kay Pogoy, yung banggaan nila ni Goulding, basketball play pa iyon eh. that was still a basketball play and the refs blew their whistle," Guiao said.  "So I think the Australians are just looking for somebody to blame when the ang dapat iblame ang the Australians, who I think are looking for trouble when they came here. The tone was set the day before when they were ripping the decals without any permission. If I coached the national team I would never do that coming into any venue and you have to respect the property of other people whatever they say kahit ano pa man yung dahilan," he added. In the end, Guiao is firm in his belief that Kickert pretty much started the brawl. And Guiao can't figure out why Kickert has never apologized for his own actions in the incident. "Kickert I think started it all, and he didn't even apologize. All he said was it's regrettable. And all he said was it's unfortunate. But he almost killed somebody and he did not apologize," Guiao said. "So sa akin pag hindi ka nagalit dun, hindi ka normal. Some people are taking the high ground but ako nagpapakatotoo lang ako. I dont think it's Chot Reyes's fault, it's Kickert's fault. He started it. And the bad thing about ths is our Gilas players are profusely apologizing for what happened, the guy who started it never apologized," he added. In the end though, Guiao acknowledges that the player's actions were wrong. However, he can understand the way they reacted. It was human nature and it was a lose-lose situation for our players. Watch their teammate get bullied and they'll hear something negative. Stand up and defend their teammate and well. they'll hearing negative things now. "To me, what is more embarrassing, if Kickert did that in front of our countrymen with us hosting, and he did not suffer any consequences after doing that..To me, sa akin yun ang nakakahiya.. na nandito ka sa Pilipinas, binagsakan ka ng siko ng napalaking tao. Kung yun ay naging kapatid mo, naging tatay mo, naging anak mo, kahit nga yung aso ko ginanun nya, makakatikim sa akin yun eh. So, it’s really to be, para magpakatotoo ka. Natural reaction talaga yun. Sabi ko nga, kung hindi nag-react ng ganun baka mas nakakahiya pa. Bakit mo pinabayaan yung kakampi nyo?" Guiao said. "I will not justify that. Mali talaga yun. I agree na mali talaga yun. Siguro nung burst of emotion, after that dapat naawat na, dapat naano na. Yun hindi ko majujustify yun. But in that instant, that split second when there's a burst of emotion, galit na ganun reaction mo, kung tao ka, flesh and blood ka and nakita mo yun, magre-react ka talaga. Kaya nga to me it's just being human," Guiao added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Manny Pacquiao says players involved in Gilas-Australia FIBA brawl should apologize

Eight-division boxing world champion Manny Pacquiao is no stranger to throwing punches on the biggest stages in the world.  That is, after all, what made him a household name all over the world.  The thirteen players involved in the ugly brawl that ensued during the Gilas Pilipinas versus Australia FIBA World Cup Qualifiers match at the Philippine Arena however, had no business throwing hands at all.  The fight, which of course went viral within minutes of happening, left four Australians and nine Filipinos ejected from what was an otherwise non-bearing game.  Australia went on to win, 89-53, by default, and the FIBA will be reviewing the incident and most likely, sanctions will be handed out.  When asked about the fiasco, Pacquiao said that the players involved should have done a better job of keeping their emotions in check, especially the boys in blue, being that the Philippines was the host for the night.  "Para sa akin, tayo dapat ang mag-control sa sarili natin because tayo ang host eh." Pacquiao told ABS-CBN News' Dyan Castillejo. "Kumbaga, dapat ipakita natin yung magandang, yung passion natin para sa kanila, yung pag-papakumbaba natin para makita ng buong mundo na mapag-kumbaba tayo." Pacquiao, who once owned a team and even played in the PBA, added that while the mounting tension in a very physical contest was understandable, it should not have escalated the way it did.  Instead of jumping in the melee, the other players should have tried to pacify the situaiton.  "Hindi naman natin maiiwasan yung mga ganung pang-yayari pero, yung ibang mga sumali, naki-gulo, dapat hindi na nangyari yun. Dapat between them lang, yung naglalaro, yung dalawang players, ang pangyayari. Dapat ang away nila, awatin nila." "Nakakahiya kasi host tayo eh." Pacquiao continued.  Sen @mannypacquiao ‘s insight re AUS vs PH “ dapat tayo ang magcontrol dahil tayo ang host, dapat ipakita natin ang passion at pagpapakumbaba. hindi naman maiiwasan ang mga ganyang gulo. #FIBA #PacquiaoMatthysse pic.twitter.com/WFfVEAUHmJ — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) July 3, 2018 While many have their opinions on Pacquiao in and out of the ring, one thing that can be said about the "Pambansang Kamao" is that he's always been gracious, whether in victory or defeat.  The boxing Hall of Famer and Philippine senator agreed that the players who figured in the physicality should offer up an apology.  "Yung mga players na naki-halo sa gulo, especially yung mga nasa bench lang na humalo, naki-gulo, ganun dapat." "Ang gulo, madali pasukan, anytime, pwede ka mag-hanap ng gulo. Ang problema dun, yung record mo, yung panglan natin." Sen @mannypacquiao thinks that the players involved should apologize. He adds “ ang gulo anytime madali yang pasukan, anytime pwede ka maghanap ng gulo pero ang importante dun ah ang record, ang pangalan natin. #FIBAWCQ #FIBAWC #PacquiaoMatthysse pic.twitter.com/6vqMhHb707 — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) July 3, 2018 A day after the incident, players involved such as NBA player Thon Maker and Gilas stars Japeth Aguilar, Andray Blatche, and Gabe Norwood have also offered apologies for the mess.   .....»»
