Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - I must express my disgust and indignation at the attitude and behaviour of a few misguided, uninformed panists, who attended a general membership meeting at City Hall, Port of Spain on 28/12/2016, called by Pan Trinbago Inc. to discuss players’ remittances for 2016 and the future of Panorama 2017.
It was clear to me that some people came with an agenda inimical to the best interest of Pan Trinbago, but I believe that in a democratic organization, everyone is entitled to their own views, once expressed in a dignified and respectful manner, but when they are filled with malicious accusations and hostility that is a horse of a different colour...
Michael Joseph: Yuh think yuh talking to dem STUPID PAN MEN on this forum or what?
Under this posting, I saw that one Kirk Chase of Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago responded with the term
"Smfh" ... could someone please tell me what that means.
And, please, SPELL IT OUT in FULL LETTERS.
I am hoping that he was complimenting the ($15,000 a month -- perks included) PRO but in this climate I might be wrong!!!
"Shaking My FourKing Head" (Smfh). POOR YOU, PRO! You have a difficult job defending corruption and mismanagement!
Questionable transactions at Pan Trinbago?
Sir, you have a difficult task in defending Mr Diaz and Co. you all made the mistake of disrespecting the very people you were mandated to serve, seeing that pan players was paid FIRST was elementary, now there is no damage control that can save you all from the wrath of pan people.
Wow. Listen to this dishonest emotional rant. This guys really think "stupid" lives in every town.
What is this about...what has he said?...
"Some, only interested in their own welfare, are trying to ‘belittle my integrity’; persons whose belief of progress in the world governing body for the Steelpan is guaranteeing that they be given the opportunity to break rules in our national Panorama competition by playing with multiple Steelbands, thereby compromising the integrity of the competition, once they can freely collect a panorama cheque or ten."...At least I now know for sure that they know of the skullduggery that has been taking place for far too long...The problem is that they are clearly powerless to do anything about it...
Other than the above admission of carelessness this rant is just another worthless annoyance...
