Abella quits Foton, might return to PVL

Rommel Abella could be making a return to the Premier Volleyball League. A league source told ABS-CBN Sports that the former Pocari Sweat head coach might get another coaching job in the PVL after parting ways with his Philippine Superliga club team Foton. Abella called it quits after two conferences with the Tornadoes. Foton Philippines president and team owner Rommel Sytin promoted assistant coach Edjet Mabbayad as interim coach. Abella was hired as a replacement for Moro Branislav late last year in time for Foton’s campaign in the 2018 Grand Prix. But the multi-titled mentor faced a tough challenge in the import-laden conference playing without ace hitters EJ Laure, who made a leave of absence because of a shoulder injury, and 6-foot-5 Jaja Santiago. Foton, which won back-to-back Grand Prix titles from 2015 to 2016, placed third in this year’s edition. The Tornadoes beefed up its lineup for the Invitational by adding former Generika-Ayala hitter Shaya Adorador, San Beda University stars Nieza and Jeziela Viray and a blue-chip recruit in Ateneo de Manila Univetsity standout Bea de Leon. But even with their new recruits that bolstered the already solid and towering core of Jaja Santiago, Dindin Santiago-Manabat, CJ Rosario, Gen Casugod Maika Ortiz, with veterans Gyzelle Sy, Ivy Perez and libero Jen Reyes, Foton failed to live up to expectations. “The team is playing at the lowest level and we feel that there’s a need for change,” said Sytin. However, the coach might just get another chance in the PVL. Under his watch the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors led by the trio of Myla Pablo, Michele Gumabao and Mel Gohing dominated the defunct V-League in the 2016 Reinforced and Open Conferences before piloting Pocari Sweat into the Reinforced Conference throne of the PVL last year. The source declined to put on record which team will get the services of Abella.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Davide questions non-mention of West Philippine Sea in draft Charter

"Why not clearly mention the West Philippine Sea? [Is it] because of the administrative fear of or love for China?" This was the question posed by former Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr., one of the framers of the 1987 Constitution, during the Senate hearing on the proposed Charter change (Cha-cha). Davide pointed out that the West Philippine Sea was not mentioned in the draft federal Constitution produced by President Rodrigo Duterte's Consultative Commission (Con-con) tasked to review the present charter.
