SUPPORT THE REMOVAL OF CHITO NARVASA AS PBA COMMISSIONER NOW!

We, the PBA fans, are NOT happy with the way Commissioner Chito Narvasa is running the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).

His term should NOT be renewed, and he should be removed as PBA Commissioner as soon as possible because he has not shown the required integrity in running the country’s premier basketball league, thereby failing to serve the best interests of the basketball-loving public. Such a belief has been fostered by the following controversies Narvasa has been involved in as top officer of the local pro league:

- The feud with journalist Snow Badua that led to the latter’s subsequent banning from the coverage of the games, thereby striking a blow AGAINST press freedom;

- The open confrontation with Talk ‘N Text import Ivan Johnson, which is not becoming of a pro league commissioner;

- The finger pointing at then-Alaska Ace Dondon Hontiveros, which is uncalled for given his lofty position;

- The unpopular retention of disgraced league official Rhose Montreal, regardless of the PBA board’s support for this move with the exception of Alaska;

- His comments about then-Mahindra player Manny Pacquiao and his suspension of team consultant Joe Lipa, which put the PBA in a bad light as it highlighted Pacquiao’s unfitness for his job as playing coach for Kia;

- His feud with predecessor Chito Salud, which reflected a lack of statesmanship required for such a position; and,

- His approval of the Kia-SMB trade and the subsequent malicious naming of a TNT official in the handling of the paperwork for Christian Standhardinger, which showed, despite his denials, that he was not fair nor prudent in deciding the worthiness or evenness of a trade, especially because the draft is supposed to improve the league’s weak teams and because as commissioner, he should display acute basketball sense regarding such matters.

To us, PBA fans, Mr. Narvasa does not have the neutrality nor fairness needed for the position of PBA Commissioner and, for this and the above-mentioned reasons, we not only support – but also demand – his ouster and replacement as PBA Commissioner!
