These questions deserve a separate thread. Fire away!




Questions for Tamerlane Lana.

1. From 2000 up to the present, how many Letran Knights have actually graduated and earned their degrees?

2. Are your Letran Knights attending their classes?

3. Why is it that Letran discriminates against fresh HS graduates and prefer to pirate older guys already playing in other leagues? Are these old players real student-athletes?

4. What is the academic standing of Letran? What is the academic reputation of Letran?

5. What was your involvement in the botched plan to construct a billion peso hospital in UST? Why was it stopped by the higher authorities?

6. Are the grade school students of Letran being required to watch NCAA games to bolster attendance? Why is that necessary?

7. Why is the student population of Letran declining? Is it a barometer of the relevance of Letran as an academic institution?

8. What is the general profile of your young alumni? What and who are they in the community?

9. Do you understand how basketball is played? Do you know that it is a team game? Do you even know the rules of the game? Do you know how your team plays?

10. What is your basis for saying that foreign players are mercenaries? Isn't your statement a sweeping generalization made without any credible evidence to back up such claim? You are a priest and you slandered the very few foreign players currently playing in the NCAA?

11. Who were displaced by the foreign players? How many? 1? 2? 3? 5? The numbers are alarming? Isn't it that there are existing rules limiting the number of foreign players per team and how many can play at the same time for each team?

12. Why is that you maliciously hid your proposal to ban foreign players in the "Other Matters" portion of the agenda? Why did you surreptitiously hide your proposal? Why resort to such sinister ploy, Father? Is that the kind of values you are talking about?

13. Why can't you follow rules, father? The NCAA rules require that such proposal must be made and discussed in the annual meeting. You refused to follow that requirement? Why? Because you have to do it clandestinely? Is that the Dominican way, father?

These are my questions for now. More to follow, Father.

Who among Daniel, Njei and Etame are mercenaries, Father? Without pointing to any, you are saying that they all are. Ready for a court battle, aside from those on the usual hard court? And you are a priest, goodness, and the head of a 400-year old noble institution that nurtured presidents, leaders, saints and heroes. Bagay ka ba diyan? Di ka na nga puede sa UST, di ba?

If you can make a sweeping generalization on foreign athletes being mercenaries, then i can do too to transferees with 1-2 years left to play. Ilan nga Ang players ng letran Ang ganun?

Sabay mo pa Ang downright dirty play ng letran, at Ang pinapakitang asal ng mga players nila sa laro. Hindi kaba nanliliit sa mga pinagsasabi mo?

I am proud when Sudan gets hit in the groin and just shakes it off. Eh ikaw? Proud kaba sa antics ng mga players mo sa basketball court?

I am also proud that during our dark ages, we held our heads up high and made no excuses. We just played by the rules and supported our school.

I am proud of the initiatives our alumni made to make our team competitive.

How about you? Are you proud of your initiatives?

Banal na aso.....Santong kabayo.....natatawa ako, hihihihihi........

Father, bakan naman ikaw ang problema kaya malapit nang maging irrelevant ang Letran?

In your own words:



It cannot be denied that Letran is suffering from a decline in student population especially in the basic education programs. It is hard to believe that after almost four hundred years of existence Letran now faces the fight for survival.

http://www.letran.edu/about/rectors.php


No need to create a "flase flag" to save yourself from Letran's current downward trajectory. No need to create a "unifying cause" just to deflect YOUR REAL ISSUE INSIDE LETRAN.

What say you Fray Turquemada, este, Fray Lana?

Do you remember how your fellow Dominican, Fray Turquemada, was instrumental in expelling the Jews from Spain. I see a history of discrimination here,yes?

Alam mo Fray, kung gusto mong tulungan ang Pinoy, e di dagdagan mo scholarship sa Letran. Tutal bumababa na enrollment, e di punuin ng mga scholars ang Letran.

Sa isang Sudan ng San Beda, limang scholar ang ipaaral niyo sa Letran. E di ang bango niyo pa. ;D

Let me teach this Friar on what it is to be a Letranite...on paper.

Read your own Student Handbook Friar:

http://www.letran.edu/pdf/StudentHandbook.pdf


2.4. Nature of the Learner as Filipino
What makes us Filipinos distinct from other nationalities is a set of traits called asal. It is composed of dangal,
damdamin and pakikipagkapwa. From these traits spring values the Filipino is best known for, such as utang na loob,
palabra de honor, pakikisama, hiya and the Bayanihan spirit. These values are good in themselves.
Moreover, a Filipino deals with his experiences in an intuitive rather than rational, subjective rather than objective
manner. Combining insights with reasoning, he experientially absorbs and then creatively expresses in local concepts, ideas
he has assimilated.
However, present conditions have turned Filipino values into a cause of ambivalence and fatalism. Viewed from
the perspective of G od’s people, life is full of kahirapan. Underlying this are the realities of injustice in the social, political,
economic and cultural systems. Such realities have changed our perspective of these values, making them hindrances to our
advancement, detrimental to human relationships and causing the neglect of the common good.


Asal...dangal. Asal at dangal.

Where is the word DISCRIMINATION, friar?

Ahhhh...

"...neglect of common good". Friar, mali po...yan po dapat ang hindi gagawin at tutularan. Yung una, yung asal at dangal yung ang nararapat gawin.

Baligtad po, friar...?

Hindi sinabing magpakawalang asal at maubusan ng dangal.

Balita ko, para daw kayong si Billy Esposo. Ok lang sapakin dahil taga-ibang bayan si Sudan? Lalabas na daw sa madla ang isinulat niyong "position paper". ;D

This Friar must resign from Letran.

This position paper is just too revealing. What a small mind leading a once glorious institution. Shame. Shame.




The Very Reverend Fr. Tamerlane Lana's position paper:


LETRAN POSITION ON THE RECRUITMENT OF FOREIGN PLAYERS
IN THE NCAA LEAGUE

Recent developments and reactions coming from many concerned people have urged Letran to review the policy and practice of NCAA in the recent years to allow member schools to recruit and field foreign players (also called imports) in their teams for sports competition.

The first issue to consider is whether this policy or practice is in keeping with the purpose and spirit for which NCAA was established. It could not be argued that NCAA as a league of schools was formed to promote camaraderie and sportsmanship among member schools, employing sports as part of the schools’ commitment to education and training homegrown athletes while engaging in friendly competition in the spirit of fair play which is possible only if there is a level playing field. By this it would be difficult to presume based on solid ground that the founders and original movers of the league even had in their minds to include imports in their competing teams.

As it appears now the inclusion of imports in the league is a deviation from that purpose for it becomes a strategy employed by the schools to win at all costs regardless whether this has become detrimental to both local players and to the NCAA as a whole.

It is not only a deviation from the purpose but even a corruption of the values upheld by NCAA members as academic institutions. Recruiting and maintaining imports is an expensive venture which finds appropriate place only in commercial leagues. If we allow our league to be like one, then money would be the main factor that would dictate the outcomes of the NCAA competition. Forming a team through “money talks” would only benefit the schools with big resources and always disadvantageous to those with meager budgets.

It would not be far-fetched if we are to invoke the proverbial “slippery slope argument” that allowing one or two imports would eventually result in an import-backed league wherein winning or success is no longer determined by our local talents but by the better imports the schools may have. This has obviously caused lessening in interest and dwindling in attendance of audience (lower t.v. network rating?) as experienced in the past seasons of the league.

The league’s endeavor to level the playing field would be difficult to realize. This is detrimental to the member schools who opt not to field foreign players for it cannot be denied that most imports are by their genetic make up physically superior to their counterparts who in frustration resort to rough play provoking rowdy behaviours like tripping, elbowing, punching, etc. This situation has certainly become prejudicial to the home-grown players since they are the ones vulnerable to such provocations and they suffer the corresponding penalties.

There is good reason to believe that these imports come here primarily not to study but to play and worse “to play for a pay” thus defeating the rightful purpose of allowing them to compete in the NCAA league. Besides these imports have displaced our local players who are deprived of good education and the recognition due to Filipino athletes who excel in harnessing their abilities through hard work and perseverance.

If NCAA maintains to be an all-Filipino league and thus committed to a level playing field, then it could definitely have an edge over other schools leagues. Based on the experience of Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) that has opted to hold an all-Filipino conference, this set up could gain wider attention and greater excitement especially among our own students who are expected to patronize and promote NCAA to others.

With all Filipinos playing in the league, competing could be a fulfilling feat both for the losing and winning teams. Graciousness on the part of the losing team, humility on the part of the winning team but certainly pride and honor in both of them. An on the part of the spectators, admiration and respect for all the teams that have really played their part well.

It is because of these pressing reasons that the Colegio de San Juan de Letran makes an appeal and a motion to the Policy Board of the NCAA reconsider immediately the policy and practice of fielding foreign players in the school teams and prohibit their recruitment and inclusion effective 2011.

Given this 9th day of November, in the year of the Lord 2010, at the Colegio de San Juan de Letran, Intramuros, Manila.

^ Naku, same arguments that they used why PBA is losing its appeal. May mga Fil-Ams and recruits daw. What would they want? Let Philippine basketball deteriorate? No offense to Filipino players and coaches but you have to accept the fact that your coaching styles does not work nowadays. A 6'6 center in the Philippines will be eaten alive by a 7'0 foreign center in international basketball. If you're content to dominate here so be it. Kayo may gusto nun. But are you doing the Philippine basketball any favor? IMO, this kind of thinking is the reason why our basketball scene has deteriorated. Sa college pa lang ganyan na mag-isip.

Why not follow what SSC did? They beef up their line-up. Now we have agile players like Ian Sangalang and versatile 6'3 forward Ron Pascual.

The that two-import per team and two-year residency rule is enough to prevent the all-import league you feared will happened. TAKOT LANG KASI DI NA KAYO NANANALO. Naghahanap pa kayo ng rason.

If you will continue with your racist agenda, the RED ARMY is willing and able to put this league in the spotlight among the global anti-racist groups. This is a local issue with global implications. You do not want to be branded as racist, right?
