Text of PFF Complaint to GMA7 Re: Arnold Clavio

To attribute it to “crab-mentality” and move on would be an easy way out. To do so, however, would be to yield the high ground without even the whimper of a feeble protest. To do so would be to lend credence to unanswered untruths which will only serve to embolden these “journalists” to continue to tarnish the work of many who have sought neither publicity nor reward for the silent work that they have done.

Re: RACIST, LIBELOUS & DISCRIMINATORY STATEMENTS OF GMA-7 TV HOST
ARNOLD CLAVIO IN YOUR NEWS & PUBLIC AFFAIRS TV PROGRAM
“UNANG HIRIT” ON 13 MARCH 2012

Gentlemen:

The PHILIPPINE FOOTBALL FEDERATION (PFF) would like to lodge a formal complaint with your organization for the racist, discriminatory, libelous and malicious statements of your Program Host, ARNOLD CLAVIO and his other co-hosts, during the nationwide broadcast of your News & Public Affairs Program “Unang Hirit” last 13 March 2012.

After reading a news report on the Philippines vs. India match (March 11, 2012), the Philippines vs. Tajikistan match scheduled on March 13, 2012, and a news report on how the members of the Philippine National Football Team (Men’s) focus on their scheduled games despite the sexual harassment complaint filed by CRISTINA RAMOS against Philippine team players LEXTON MOY and ANGEL GUIRADO, the following statements, among others, were uttered by your host ARNOLD CLAVIO, thus:

Host Rhea Santos – “Kailangan masampulan eh…”

Host Arnold Clavio – “Kaya talagang ano na. Aral na sa inyo yan, ang yayabang nyo akala nyo. Porke’t dinadagsa kayo ng mga fans, ang gugugwapo nyo eh.”

“Parang God’s gift to women”

“Alam mo lahat.. lahat nang… nakuwento nga ni Cristina at nang dalawa nyang kasama. Lahat ginawa para ipaalam na may babaeng papasok sa locker, ilang katok nga sila eh. Eh malapit na yung match eh. Kailangan ma-check na yung dalawang koponan. Eh nauna yung Philippine team bago yung Malaysian… na team.

“Ngayon nag-sorry para sa isa daw nilang kasamahan. Saan ka nakakita ng Azkal na may suso? Wala naman akong…. anong cup B? Maybe a cup B sa isang kasama?

“Palusot na lang…”

“Sana nag-sorry, sorry na lang talaga, di ba? Parang…”

“Hindi ko kayo ka-kultura. Kasi wala dito (pointing to his chest)…. at wala dito (pointing to his head)…”

“Hindi naman kayo Pilipino. Nagpapanggap lang kayong kayumanggi. Hindi kayo dito lumaki”…

“Mahirap yun….. Insensitive.”

“Para maging aral.”

“Congratulations. Kasi hiwalay naman ito sa ginagawa nilang pakikipaglaban. So, good luck din sa inyong susunod na laban para mapunta kayo sa Final 4 ha. Na bihira pong marating nang Pilipinas sa matagal na panahon.”

“Alam naman nila yung mga sexcapades nila sa isa’t isa eh, di ba? Sino ba nag-penicillin.. Alam naman nila yun.”

“Akala siguro lahat sila gusto silang matikman siguro… makasama…Diyos ko.”

Your TV Host ARNOLD CLAVIO’s declarations that the members of the Philippine Men’s National Football Team “are not Filipinos” and “are only pretending to be Filipinos” are not only libelous and defamatory to the good name and reputation of the PFF and the Filipino players comprising the Men’s National Team now playing with their hearts for “flag and country” at the AFC Challenge Cup in Kathmandu, Nepal. They are also verbal statements of a racist nature and constitute malicious, contemptuous, discriminatory and denigratory remarks concerning race and origin that offend the dignity of the Filipino players and Filipinos who are similarly situated.

ARNOLD CLAVIO has made those scathing and offensive remarks with reckless disregard of the truth or falsity of his statements. In association football, only citizens of the country can be a member of the Representative “A” Team of the country, i.e., its National Team. In making his scurrilous statements, CLAVIO made it appear that PFF has selected persons who are not Filipino citizens to be members of and play for the Philippine National Team. This subjects all Philippine National Teams (not only the Men’s National Team) to doubts by international organizations, spectators and opposing national teams as to the Filipino citizenship, and therefore eligibility, of the Philippine team players. It also puts the name and reputation of the Philippines and the PFF in disrepute. CLAVIO obviously does not know (and neither he nor your program staff did not care to check) that only Filipinos can play in the Philippine National Football Team. Indeed, weeks prior to any international tournament a country has to submit to the organizer a list of its National Team players with proof of their citizenship or nationality (e.g. passports).

The members of the Philippine National Team now playing in Nepal at the AFC Challenge Cup are Filipinos just like your Unang Hirit hosts Arnold Clavio, Rhea Santos, Connie Sison and Lyn Ching-Pascual. Some of the current members of the Philippine Men’s Football Team have either a Filipina mother or a Filipino father, thus qualifying them to be natural-born Filipino citizens. One can notice the obvious discomfort of even CLAVIO’s co-host Lyn Ching-Pascual when he confidently uttered the words “Hindi naman kayo Pilipino. Nagpapanggap lang kayong kayumanggi….”

ARNOLD CLAVIO also discriminates against the Philippine national team players who, for one reason or another, grew up or partly grew up outside the Philippines when he uttered the words “Hindi kayo dito lumaki”. This constitutes disparaging and demeaning remarks against Filipino children of Filipinos who are compelled by circumstances to work and live abroad with their children. His bias against Filipinos who grew up abroad is utterly shocking and is not expected to be blurted out by a TV host of your respected and reputable organization. Many Filipinos, including our own President Benigno S. Aquino, partly grew up abroad by force of circumstances. Are they less Filipino than those who grew up entirely in the Philippines?

ARNOLD CLAVIO is also guilty of sexist remarks and sex-related innuendo leveled against the Philippine National Team players when he uttered the words “Alam naman nila yung mga sexcapades nila sa isa’t isa eh, di ba? Sino ba nag-penicillin… Alam naman nila yun.”…..“ Akala siguro lahat sila gusto silang matikman siguro… makasama…Diyos ko.” Added to that statement was host Rhea Santos’ statement that “[y]ung mga babae…kasi porke guwapo… sikat… minsan halos itapon na nila yung mga sarili doon sa mga lalaki” that operate to demean and disparage Filipino women, in general, and the Filipino women supporters of the Philippine Men’s National Team. It must be noted that your Unang Hirit program caters to all age groups.

After uttering the above-stated libelous, racist and discriminatory remarks, and after obviously reading an idiot board or reminder from somebody (not covered by the camera), ARNOLD CLAVIO, congratulated the team and wished them luck during their next game so they could qualify for the semifinals of the Challenge Cup, a situation which CLAVIO himself admitted is seldom attained ‘”by the Philippines”. Nonetheless, the unquantifiable damage and injury to the PFF and the Philippine Men’s National Football Team has already been inflicted by the scurrilous and discriminatory words emanating from your TV host ARNOLD CLAVIO.

As you are aware, the matter of sexual harassment complaint by Cristina Ramos against Philippine players Lexton Moy and Angel Guirado is now pending before the PFF Disciplinary Committee which has primary jurisdiction over the complaint. While your organization may report news concerning the matter, we and the public expect that no racist, discriminatory, sexist, or disparaging remarks that offend the dignity of persons or organizations or maliciously defame persons or organizations are made by your hosts and reporters.

We thus lodge this complaint and protest with GMA NETWORK, INC. and demand that, (i) your organization impose, after requisite proceedings, the appropriate sanction on your TV host ARNOLD CLAVIO; (ii) your organization and/or ARNOLD CLAVIO rectify, among others, his discriminatory, racist and libelous assertions that members of the Philippine Men’s National Football Team are not Filipinos and are only pretending to be Filipinos; and, (iii) your organization and/or ARNOLD CLAVIO issue a written apology to the PFF and the Philippine Men’s National Football Team which should also be forthwith read and given prominence in your News & Public Affairs TV program, “Unang Hirit”.

We are thankful that in one way or another, your organization has helped in the promotion of football in the Philippines. We all know that encouraging the Filipino youth to engage in sports in general or play football in particular contributes to nation-building. We however strongly protest the previously cited statements of your Unang Hirit Hosts ARNOLD CLAVIO and RHEA SANTOS.
Very truly yours,
MARIANO V. ARANETA., JR.
President

  9. John Deocampo says:

    Arnold Clavio is a disgrace to the broadcasting industry. This is a clear example of irresponsible journalism. We hope that the PFF will continue the fight to give justice to the Philippine Azkals.

  10. Miyaki Batungbakal says:

    offensive minded na ang PFF ngaun… hehehe. Gone are the puro depensa days lang.

  11. Miyaki Batungbakal says:

  18. dating maka-GMA says:

    i saw Clavio’s response in tweeter… di pa rin nag-sorry but asking for understanding, bakit kelangan siya ang unawain after saying those comments, siya ang discriminating… and he’s abusing his authority as broadcaster, na kahit ano pwede nya sabihin on national TV without basis? bumaba na tingin ko kay Arnold… kala ko pa naman, walang kinikilingan, walang pinoproteksyuna, walang kasinunglingan, yun pala… puro kabaligtaran…shame on you!

  19. mon says:

    dapat ikaw ang sumosu sa kalabaw nito,,,,mr clavio,,,,,,

  20. Christian Louis P. Batiles says:

    Funny, and you(Arnold Clavio), call yourself a Genuine Filipino? And say that our HALF-FILIPINOS are not true FILIPINOS? So how then do you classify a Genuine Filipino from a Fake-Filipino. Is that how a Genuine Filipino would act? I think the Fake-Filipino I see here is YOU and only YOU. Your a disgrace to your skin. I think your one of the most pathetic HATERS. And mind you, PFF is still investigating on the SEXUAL HARASSMENT case. Anyone is innocent unless proven guilty.

    • pindoy says:

      genuine fil = arnold clavio having crab mentality.. let’s move on, don’t be a crab.. let’s support each other in order to move this beloved country forward..

  21. bejan says:

    To Arnold Clavio, “I understand that you are proud of who you are and where you came from, but please open your heart and mind to other filipino culture and personalities. As you are in the media industry, you will find out out that your place in this world is both vital and insignificant. Don’t get too big for your breeches”- Quote from Paul

  22. Idnod0911 says:

    Dapat ganito din gawin kay Eric “Demonyo” DImzon eh!

  23. christine says:

    ayan kasi, feeling ni clavio eh he’s super galing na broadcaster na tipong lahat ng sasabihin n’ya eh sasang-ayunan na lang ng lahat. sana nam matuto sila rumespeto sa ibang tao. hindi por que nagkamali na ang mga ‘yun eh may karapatan na sila siraan at patutsadahan ng kung ano-ano ang azkals. tao rin naman ang mga ‘yan na maunong masaktan. tigilan na ‘yang trial by publicty, ‘di ba may nagha-handle na nung complaint? wala naman s’ya dun sa actual na pinangyarihan para makapag-comment s’ya ng todo at saka sana man lang, nag-iisip sila bago mag-comment about the nationality thingy. ‘di ba nag-aral naman sila? ever heard of jus saguini? Filipinos by blood ang mga ‘yan! kahit pa saang lupalop ipanganak ang mga ‘yan, basta may Filipino parent, Pinoy pa rin ang mga ‘yan! Sure, they could have dual nationality pero choice nila kung ide-denounce nila ang Pinoy nationality but clearly enough, they did not kaya nakakapaglaro sila as a part of the National Team! At kung lumaki man sila sa ibang bansa, kalimitan sa kanila walang choice, ever heard of Pinoys going abroad to work? Yes, most of them have kids, Filipino kids na lumalaki sa ibang bansa! Sa GMA, pakisabihan n’yo ang ang mga reporters, writers, at researchers n’yo na makikitid ang utak at pakidagdag sa plug n’yo about “Think Before You Post” ang “Think Before You Speak & Report!”

    • vhey says:

      sir the case about sexual harassment is pending on PFF disciplinary committee.. lets us not be biased when we only knew the other side of the story..lets be fair.. about his racist comment.. he’s not referring to the case..he’s pointing out those(azkals) are not Filipino.. they just pretend to be Fil.. just like arnold.. you just jump into conclusion without knowing the other side the story..shame

    • Anne says:

      Innocent until proven guilty. That’s the crucial part in terms of the SH. As for you, sir, just like Arnold Clavio, you only heard just one side of the story. Do not jump into conclusions. I am against SH, fyi, if they are guilty, then they should be punished, learn it the hard way. But until then, like I said, innocent until proven guilty.

      Freedom of speech? I say, if he’s a responsible journalist, he should not have done that. What happened to their slogan “walang kinikilingan” whatnot? Hmm.. They should add, “think before you speak”, yes? 🙂

  25. rogelio says:

    as a filipino living abroad in australia i am utterly shocked at the behaviour of filipinos with attitudes such as clavio. i think its people like him that hold our country back. shame on you. i can think of hundreds of derogatory words to call him however i choose not to. all i can say is shame on you for holding the filipino spirit back. also shame on cristina ramos. just because you are the daughter of a president (hence why you currently hold your position), doesnt mean you are any higher than other filipinos. you are part of the corrupt state that the philippines is in and shame on you for holding our beautiful country down to the dirt.

  26. Futbol PAN na makayan says:

    Paano ba talaga maging isang pilipino? Kailangan ng papel, o panahon na nakalagak sa ating bayan? marami nga diyan ay nabuhay at dito na lumaki at tinatawa nilang pilipino sila pero SINISIRA nila and PILIPINAS (e.g. mga terorista, drug adik, etc). Mayroon namang mga balikbayan at mga anak nila na bumalik pagkatapos ng ilang taon at TUMUTULONG sa PILIPINAS. Hindi lahat parepareho. Huwag tayong mang-STEREOTYPE. Buti nga pumayag maglaro ang mga AZKALZ halfpinoy para sa bayan kaysa pinili nila sa mg FC sa ibang bansa na lng maglaro. SANA MAGING RESPONSIBLE naman ang mga JOURNALIST natin!

    Paminsan iniisip ko, “sana dictatorship or may censorship na lang ang media” dahil hindi nila kayang iregulate sarili nila. Paminsan nakakasira pa sila sa improvement at development. Just for thought. But we are still a free country in the end.

      Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, regardless how bereft of logic, factual information, and common sense it may be.

      But if you want people to TRY and UNDERSTAND what it is you are saying, much less respect you, please do take the time and the care to acquit yourself well in public forums like these.

      And it begins with proper sentence construction, grammar, and perhaps the most basic of all – SPELLING.

    • futbolero says:

      The reason why the azkals are comprised of the current players because of the shortage of players based in the philippines who can compete internationally. These guys are learning what the current cultural nuances are today compared to whatever they were exposed by their filipino parent.

      Whatever their “yabang” is these days, this yabang has been boosted by how they are seen by Philippine news and how they are marketed to the masses. Remember they are just 20-somethings living their life. wouldn’t a 20-something based in the Philippines do similar things albiet their lives under a microscope?

      The problem of the Filipino is the crab mentality. Clavio’s remarks are very unprofessional and shows how he lacks the intelligence to be a newscaster. What will Clavio do iis he lambasted on live TV?

      Just like in the US, a few years back, a filipino was described as household help … Filipinos complained about this but the reality is most of the household help were either a filipino or a mexican …. sad but true … A lot of filipinos in the US also do not know how to speak english moreover filipino.

  35. John MacDonald says:

    Any success in a sporting competition done in the name of the Philippines will bring recognition of the country’s achievement to the broader outside world audience which can be no bad thing. Encouragement to the nations youth to emulate their sporting “heroes” will lead to more native-born and raised players in the sport, which unlike basketball has never been the number one choice as a pastime for the country’s children. The really good ones may eventually ply their trade amongst the major European teams, they will be no less Filipino, as was Paulino Alcantara a hundred years ago when he shone for Barcelona FC and represented Spain, Catalonia and the Philippines in international fixtures. The rules that govern who can play for what country are strictly adhered to, so when you examine who has played for France, Spain, Portugal, England and so on in the past decade you will not be surprised to hear that 100% racial purity is not the reality of who plays for who. Like every international coach Michael Weiss will pick the best team that he is able to put on the park, to do otherwise would be to miss the opportunity to enhance the reputation of the nation and stifle the prospect of future development of the sport within the Philippines.

    • gabo says:

      Arnold is a media personality who chose to voice his racist, biased opinion on national television while fulfilling his role as a network show host. Kung sinabi niya yung opinion niya off-camera sa isang kausap niya dun, gago lang siya pero karapatan niyang maging gago kung gusto niya–yan ang sinasabi mong freedom of speech. Ang problema, at ang rason kung bakit siya pwedeng habulin ng PFF, ay sinabi niya yung opinion niya on-camera bilang isang network broadcaster–sa ganyang sitwasyon, mas matimbang ang journalism code of ethics. Malinaw?

    • vhey says:

      freedom of speech is not absolute mam.. at isa siyang brocaster..may code of ethics sila.. giving his opinion on national tv with that kind of statement is not appropriate… biased pseudo journalism..

    • Wiligali says:

      Heh freedom of speech…Laitin kaya kita nang walang basehan…at pagnagalit ka ay freedom of speech ang sasabihin ko…ano kaya pakiramdam mo.

      Me code of conduct ang mga journalist at mga broadcaster. Di sila pwede mag voice nang opinyon nila nang walang basehan at lalo na kung mapang lait. Kaya nga me libel case eh.

  40. kung c clavio kya sumabak dyan kya ba nya?

  41. Ana Liza says:

    tama lng yan..

  42. Grabe na ito!!! Sabit din sa complaint si Ms. Rhea Santos

  43. mr arnold clavio it’s because of people like you that tempt me to rip my philippine passport and just go on with my original one. i love the philippines and its people but to hear what you just said and to read that so many even agree with you is beyond me. kaya pala di umuunlad ang pilipinas at naiiwanan na tayo, laganap ang mga pilipinong katulad mo. i find it difficult to believe na mga tubong pinas, laking pinas at kayumangi are the true pinoy cause the last time i checked its these tubong pinas, laking pinas at kayumangi are the ones who are corrupt, who steal from those who work their butts off to make a decent living and pull our country further down the drain. you mr clavio are an embodiment and epitome of this hideous trait that filipinos exhibit. you and your racist followers are crabs that need to be crushed. i can’t even fathom how somebody could even have your child! nakakatakot ang asal ng batang ‘to pag lumaki! rot in hell you ugly, big eyed, brown skinned piece of sh*#t!! isa kang matabang linta na dapat tapakan para mawala sa mundo!

    oh and one last note to GMA, from the very start you guys always play dirty that’s why i never patronize your channel. your values are all screwed up!

    • Wiligali says:

      My friend…pls be kind to animals. Don’t rip your passport…it is against the law. I totally agree with you. He is very irresponsible guy. Alam mo ba na hindi maganda credibility nyan. Binuntis nya si Sarah Balabagan, may dalawa anak at hindi pinakasalan…paano married na sya.
      CREDIBILITY????

    nung si rosana roses may sinabing mali sa showtime nacancel un show, dapat ung unang hirit i-cancel din, kahit nga ung showtime nag aopology agad after nung ginawa ni rosana roses hayun tinuluyan parin, eh ang unang hirit nag apology ba? wala ilang araw na, my god hindi lang cancel ang dapat dyan, hinayaan lang ng GMA7 mangyari un for god sake… RACIST na un…

  47. gabo says:

    Arnold Clavio’s ignorance and racial prejudice are shocking for someone who’s supposed to be a veteran broadcaster, but what is more shocking is that GMA is condoning his bad behavior. Kudos to the PFF for standing behind the Philippine Men’s National Football Team and for taking the fight to the top.

  48. lamented says:

    azkals are kids of OFW ang tinaguriang mga BAGONG BAYANI! how dare Clavio et.al lambasting them! kaya di umunlad-unlad ang sports sa Pilipinas dahil sa mga kagaya ninyong UTAK ALIMANGO! crab mentality! you talked of sexual harassment? how about ung balibalita on you and Sarah Balabagan? mas malala yon! menor di edad pa noon sa sarah! phedophile?GMA7– MAY kinikilingan! HINDI SERBISYONG TOTOO!

  49. jash says:

    mas maganda rin na mag file ng complaint ang pff sa proper court, tungkol sa pambababoy ni arnold crabio,para masampulan din ang mayabang na yan, sabi nga ni Mike Limpag, ang apelydo ni arn arn ay tunog spanish,lol,GMA Gungung Mga Anchors ng unang hirit,hirit ng hirit kahit foul na.

  50. Mime says:

    Kudos to PFF for voicing out what a lot of Filipinos have been trying to get across the minds of backward-thinking kababayans who look down on the Filipino’s ability to make a name in world of football. We should embrace our Filipino brethren regardless of the purity of their Philippine blood. We are living in a progressive, globalized world. There’s no place for racial supremacy. Not then. More so, not now.

    Freedom of speech is indeed a right afforded to us by the Constitution. However, we should be aware that one’s freedom of speech is not absolute. Else, there would be no cases of libel and defamation. We should be reminded that our right to speak out cannot go as far as besmirching the reputation of another person, whether innocent or still trying to prove their innocence. Especially the latter.

    “Journalists” like Arnold Clavio should not be given the idea that they could throw out mindless comments regarding a person’s race, creed, upbringing or preferences without being held accountable for it. Their job entails objectivity. They should show no prejudice. They should not retaliate a perceived lack of justice with another injustice. Are these the type of reporters that you allow to gloriously sachet in front of us everyday, GMA? Please do not insult the Filipino’s intelligence by giving us these prejudiced, arrogant and unapologetic newsreaders.

  51. lamented says:

    I watched the show live halos batuhin ko ang TV!Clavio and company are such irrespnsible journalist! dapat maparusahan! Inggit lang yang claviong yan at mga kasama dahil di GMA nakakuha ng rights para ipalabas ang mga laro ng AZKALS , they found out maraming followers here and abroad, talo sa ratings! GOOO PFF! we’re here to support you! good luck AZKALS! WIN OR LOSE WE’RE ALL PINOYS! WE WILL SUPPORT YOU!

  52. Phil says:

    uhmm…. PFF being defensive…. In Qatar, when they see that a person has a potential in sports, even though you are not a local in their country, they will do anything to make you their athlete (like giving a passport to make you there local)…. what difference does this make with the AZKALS. They have talent, but sometimes people growing outside the Philippines tend to forget the culture and morals that we have. So instead of lambasting someone who just says his opinion, why not double check the attitude of the team? isn’t this also “crab mentality”? As for me, a true Filipino should be 100%, no mix whatsoever! 🙂

  53. Dan says:

    clavio is just jealous. it’s obvious. if he wants to insult the azkals, there are much more intelligent ways to do it. but clavio is hardly capable.

    i pity clavio.

  54. sinichi says:

    i guess mr.clavio should be aware of the words that he will say on air. napakaliit ng naging basehan nya para sabihing di tunay na pilipino ang mga azkals. kung tutuusin nasa tabi nya lang ang mga di tunay na pilipino…

    SHAME ON YOU CLAVIO…..

  55. Boyett says:

    Well the way i see arnold he thinks he is God’s gift to women. To give him credit, he had made his effort and really tried to look like a matinee idol. Nga lang sagad na ganyan nlng tlga. Bilugan. That’s an opinion. One thing you firgot to ask as a journalist, bakit sa dami ng “friendly marches” lang ngayon nagka problema sa isang inspection. Who among them us a novice in inspecting teams? Im sure not the players? Theyre members of international leagues. Theyve been inspected by all kinds of insoectors. Not of a vip persona. Sige na tama kana cutie cutie chub chub

  56. JR_Wagas says:

    Clavio doesn’t have the balls to own up to his words and GMA doesn’t have the balls to discipline its anchor.

  57. INDEED.!!! Congratulations – the letter is straight to the point, clear, concise and strikes at the core of the source. Now – what has GMA Inc got to say – after all they are the employer of those two misguided self-serving broadcasters. PFF should sue the GMA for damages and bankrupt the whole TV network for good. The programmed besmirched the reputation of the Azkals players ,the PFF and millions of Filipinos of mixed parenthood in and outside the Philippines.

  58. noGGy says:

    Ano kaya pakiramdam ni Lyn Ching nung sinabi ni Clavio ang mga racist comments nya?

  59. Bill of rights says:

    media people report what they have seen but should not comment and judge by their mind and action, let the people decide from what you had reported, too much freedom can create these kind of problem. Siguro its time kayo naman ang masampolan.

    tsk tsk tsk…next time kasi, wag na mambastos ng babae…para di na kailangan magreact ng mga kalalakihang maginoo. b o t t o m l i n e, a gentleman dont talk about a woman’s breast size (and probably humiliate her for such a size in front of other men), and face her with just your underwear. wala bang towel sa locker room? or are you expecting her to check if you are having a damn hard-on. Bastos kasi.

    • Sinong nagsabi na nambastos yung azkals? Yung babae na nagcomplain? Nasaan yung ebidensya nya, o witness kaya? Napatunayan na ba na totoo yung reklamo nya? Hindi pa, diba, dahil iniimbestigahan pa lang. Isa pa, sinigurado nung babaeng yun na wala na dito sa bansa ang mga nirereklamo nya, bago niya inihain yung reklamo nya at pagkatapos ay walang patumanggang sinuyod ang mga media outlets para magdadakdak tungkol sa reklamo nya. Bina-black propaganda nya yung mga inaakusahan nya ng walang kalaban-laban sa kanya dahil nasa malayong bansa at inaatupag ang isang mahalagang laban para sa bansa. Katakataka, bakit di man lang nya nabanggit sa manager ng team na nakausap pa nya pagkatapos ng laban ang alleged na ginawa sa kanya? Dyan pa lang makikita na ng isang taong nag-iisip na may masamang motibo sya at ika nga ay hidden agenda kontra sa azkals. May isa pang nagpapatibay sa hinalang ganito — sa umpisa pa lamang ng pagakyat ng popularidad ng pambansang koponan dhil sa accomplishment nila sa Suzuki Cup ay nila-lambast na ng babaing ito ang koponan at ang management nito pati na rin ang PFF (na nagkaroon ng panibagong presidente matapos ma-oust yung dati dahil sa corruption and mismanagement). Di daw dapat mag-HIRE ng mga FOREIGNERS para sa national team dahil sa 98 million Filipinos daw ay siguradong makakahanap ng magagaling. Talaga, Cristy Ramos? Kaya pala sa tinagal-tagal mo sa pwesto ay wala kang nahanap. Ngayong nagkakabunga na ng maganda yung ginagawa ng mga pumalit sa iyo at sa mga kabagang mo ay pupunahin mo ang naging desisyon ng kasalukuyang mga namumuno — desisyon na ginawa upang mai-angat ang estado ng larong futbol sa bansa. HIRE? eh wala ngang sweldo kundi maliit lang na allowance ang binibigay ng gobyerno. Salamat na nga lang at may private individuals and companies na nagiisponsor sa kanila. FOREIGNERS? Di ko alam kung talagang tanga at walang alam ang babaing ito o nagpapakatanga lang para lang may mai-puna. In either case, wala syang karapatan na mapabilang sa officialdom ng PFF kahit na match commissioner. Isa pa, balita ko napalayas sya bilang presidente ng Phil. Olympic Committee. hmm. O hayan, may credibility pa ba yang si Cristy Ramos para paniwalaan mo kaagad-agad ang mga sinabi nya kahit wala pang naririnig sa kabilang kampo at wala pang resulta ang imbestigasyon? Bakit nasilaw ka lang ba sa pagiging ex-presidential daughter nya? Cristy Ramos has fallen from grace — from being POC president relegated to match commissioner. Is that why she is super-sensitive and interprets a simple joke among boys as directed towards her? And Guirado, supported by the team, says that he was in shorts and not in briefs. Now who is more credible between the 2 parties? Baka sabihin mo may record na yung azkals which is yung alleged rape case na sa media din dinala ng complainant and not to the proper court. At sino yung complainant? Isang FHM model na naghuhubad and a proven liar — sabi nya graduate sya ng BS Applied Physics from UP which UP promptly denied.. Nung ininterview at tinanong kung may balak syang magartista bakit daw hindi kung may magoffer. Yun lang pala ang habol. May nangyari ba sa kasong yon? asan na si Amanda Coling? Curious thing din na just before a big international tournament nangyari ito — just like yung kay Cristy Ramos. Is there a conspiracy against the rising popularity of the azkals and the game of football in the Philippines? May nasasagasaan bang ibang koponan? hmmm

    Reblogged this on ianlaput and commented:
    It’s just sad to realize that up to this day, many Filipinos are still capable of being racist in order to protect the so-called “pure and true” Filipino identity. Many profess their pride but utterly failed to act accordingly with the value that a true Filipino should embody. Yes, some of the Azkals MAY have done an offensive thing but i think it’s not right to give snide and racist remarks to malign and discredit their Filipino identities just for growing overseas or having a non-Pinoy father or mother. Filipinos have gone through a lot of wars and revolution in and outside our home and in our country, let’s give each other credit for the good things we have done for our country and if ever one or we have done wrong, let’s accept and reflect on it and do the necessary and proper thing to do in order to correct that mistake.

    Mr crabio, FYI ang parents nila ay OFW, nagsikap mkaahon sa buhay kaya lumabas ng bansa at sila ang naging bunga na ngayun ay nkikipaglaban para sa bansa. Lumilingon sila sa kanilang pinangalingan sa pamamagitan ng sports at iba pang entertainment like also singing and dancing.
    Hindi katulad mo masyadong mapagsamantala ng kapwa at minor de edad pa. Ikaw nga ang hindi Filipino e, bakit? kasi mukha kang allien!!!!

    i don’t see why this has to be taken out of context. sa susunod kasi kung ayaw nyo masaway sa tv, wag kayo mambastos ng babae. kung nabastos man kayo ni arnold clavio buti nga dahil ang babastos nyo sa babae. that’s what you get. hate begets hate. complain all you want, but that’s not going to erase and cover up what you did. you are sexists.

    • @Peter Paul; Aba eh talagang mas magaling ako sayo kung simpleng tanong ko lang eh di mo masagot : may resulta na ba ang imbestigasyon tungkol sa reklamo nya/ nahatulan na bang guilty yung nirereklamo nya? Dahil hindi mo sinagot ito lahat ng sinabi mo ay irrelevant and immaterial, sabi nga ng mga lawyers. Nakikita lamang sa mga sinabi mo na tulad ni Cristy Ramos ay isa ka lamang hater ng azkals and /or football na sasakyan kahit anong issue laban sa koponan may maipukol lang — mga taong di nagiisip (o wala talagang isip?) consumed by their hate — hate na nanggagaling sa iba’t-ibang dahilan — tulad ng nasasapawan na ang kanilang paborito, o baka tulad ni cramos ay di matanggap na yung mga dating underlings nya ay sya na ngayong mga boss nya kaya’t tinitira sinuman ang sinusuportahn nitong mga ito — di kasi nya matira ng derecho, wala syang makitang butas. Ika nga ng isang nagcomment — is she elbowing her way back to power? Well, kung ganun nga I’m telling her that she wont succeed. Baka yung sinasabi mong umaalingasaw sa baho ay hindi ang azkals, hehe — ayusin mo ang pang-amoy mo.

    Kahit anong sabihin ng GMA at kahit anong pagtatakip ang gawin nila… Hindi maitatangging nagkamali c Mr. Clavio. Bakit hindi nalang umamin at tanggapin na mali. Un lang naman eh. Nag release pa ng OS na nakakainit lalo ng ulo. Hindi lang tungkol sa AZKALS ito. Para sa lahat ng OFW.

    ARNOLD CLAVIO: Hindi naman kayo Pilipino…. Hindi kayo lumaki dito!

    Porke ba hindi lumaki dito sa atin, hindi na Pilipino? Hindi ba pwedeng kelangan lang mabuhay ng mga nanay o tatay nila kaya nangibang bansa? Hindi ba pwedeng nagmahal lang cla kaya nakapag-asawa ng foreigner?

    Eh ano kung hindi cla lumaki dito???

    Hindi lang Azkals ang sinasagasaan nia…

    Whether totoo man or hindi totoo un sexual harassment complaint laban dun sa 2 Azkals, hindi dapat nagreact ng ganun sina Arnold Clavio at Rhea Santos kase nasa national TV(at napapanood pa kamo ng mga nandito sa abroad). Sobrang unprofessional ng tono ng pagbanat nila. Hindi tamang insultuhin ang lahi ng mga players dahil ang magulang ng mga yan ay OFWs po. Igalang po natin ang mga OFWs at mga anak nito.

  86. Roderick Ybardolaza says:

    As an OFW, I took offense on Arnold’s low regards for Filipinos who did not grow up in the Philippines. I happened to have two children who were born and raised outside the country and they too were very disappointed with Arnold and consequently with GMA7 for supporting instead of sanctioning him for these racist and discriminatory remarks. Nawalan na kami ng tiwala sa Serbisyong Totoo. GMA7 has just lost one international subscriber in me. Buti na lang may TV5 na sa aming subcription bundle.

  87. Sigrid Weber says:

    What’s the fuss between the Azkals and Clavio (and his posse)?! Although Clavio’s words were completely unprofessional, I wouldn’t consider it or him as being racist. Why? Racism is distinguishing each race or races as being inferior or superior to another. He never made such retorts. He only pointed out that the Azkals aren’t truly accustomed to our culture, aestheticism and ethics. Yes, they are Filipino by blood but one can’t easily assume that they can behave or act in accordance to our ethical standards.

    So then…

    Why do most Filipinos so quick to embrace anyone even with just an ounce of Filipino blood as “Filipino”? Acting like rabid monkeys or easily awestruck in their presence! But by the time they do stupid things, we say “Go back where you came from!” or “Ah, kasi puti o Amerikano.” or “Di kasi laking Pinas kaya ganyan umasta.” even worse, we quickly retract our statement when we said “They are true Filipinos… And we are PROUD of them!” Remember, there’s a thin line between Hospitality and Colonial Mentality. And I think we greatly suffer from the latter and of being hypocritical.

    I strongly agree that Clavio hit them badly and should be sanctioned or reprimanded for his actions. But the bottom line is, he was just stating his opinion. The last time I heard, expressing ones opinion was never illegal but proper caution should still be exercised. Let the heads decide Clavio’s fate and the other concerned parties for it is not our God damn business to dwell on it and be highly emotional about it. Affected much? Let’s give ourselves a break! Instead, let us focus on supporting our athletes and journalists and stop hitting them with very personal remarks every time this same stuff happens.
