I am a Filipino Boxing Fan and will root/cheer for the Pinoy fighter every time...

but I wont accept mediocrity, everytime a figther loose he has to take a back seat to THINK THINGS OUT and give way for the other contenders to go for it...

but this does not mean i won't cheer or root for him again, on his next fight(s), i just wont be expecting too much and wait for the fighter to prove himself again....

I think you should adress that question to the boxer. They are the ones putting on a show for us and are performing for themselves. Should we as fans accept mediocrity? Depends if you paid for a ticket or not.

If you dont' want to accept a boxer for being mediocre, don't follow his fights, don't show up on his messageboards, and don't buy his events

If I'm his promoter, I'd be pissed becasue I put up money to advertise him. If I'm anybody else, I keep my mouth shut. These men put their life on the line so you can cheer your *** off. Appreciate that for what its worth.
agree w/ u Bro,u hit him right between the eyes!

Of course not. But personally, I don't think the Azkals had a "mediocre" performance. I think it was way above what was expected.

Okay guys, the question is "Should we accept mediocrity, simply because someone is Filipino?".

Are we here on this site because we are Filipinos, or we are boxing fans.

How can we progress, if we always give a free pass because someone is a kababayan?

This is not a bait thread. I just want to know, when do we start looking at accountability? Example of course, is Randy Suico.


I agree that sometimes we "condone" the mediocrity of others just because they're Filipino. It's like saying that we're an inferior race so mediocrity is ok for us. Sometimes telling the person the truth is better.

Randy Suico is not mediocre. He's somebody that tried his best, but is not good enough to be the best in his weight class. It's not like he wasted God given talent by womanizing, gambling, drinking, etc, etc. The kid tried hard, but alas is not good enough.

I can see though that some of the positions the TS has is pretty mediocre.....

Is this some kind of "palusot" of that mediocre futbol thread? :gun2: No no no
