Where is the MOU??

Does anyone have the MOU between the NCC and Pan Trinbago (Keith Diaz)?From the information available it seems as though the NCC will be deducting 20% of the government's subvention to Pan Trinbago. What a travesty!Pan players should never agree to this.This may be a good reason to boycott Panorama 2019!See More

"You must be talking about me! Another downside of the mentality of those "in charge" locally is that expats age, get fed up, frustrated and become more reluctant to contribute to the local discourse. "
