did you know that the best sri-lankan exports are its crabs
^ funny! hehe
yup, especially na puro single entry visas nalang pwede since 9/11... ok lang naman magkagreen card, may dual citizenship na naman eh.
sheesh. pangit ka na nga sinungaling pa - i know it's immature, di ko lang mapigilan.
I think Ronnie is a Bangladeshi, not Sri-Lankan...
Ronnie Nathanielsz used to be a Sri Lankan until then President Ferdinand E. Marcos, by presidential decree, gave him his naturalized Filipino citizenship. Nathanielsz who has worked in the country for several years as a media practitioner, was granted by Marcos for having supported him in his presidency all throughout.
This is the same presidential decree that made it possible for American players to become naturalized back in 1981 while playing for the NCC Training Team of Ron Jacobs. We have to understand that during that time, it was Martial Law and that with the use of the pen and his signature, Marcos can actually create his own laws or execute these to the fullest, including for his personal benefit.
Nathanielsz has eventually embraced Filipino citizenship. I won't doubt where his heart is - he has been in the Philippines long enough to love the country and treat it as his very own. But for a veteran media practitioner like him, he must exercise due diligence when reporting the news. There are times when I agree with his views, there are times when I don't - but no one has a monopoly of personal opinions anyway. I don't like it though when he starts coddling the people he's been close with over the years - from Marcos to Danding Cojuangco to Robert Jaworski to Rudy Salud to Golden Boy Promotions. He describes these guys like gods and appears to worship them as if they don't make mistakes.
Open Letter To Ronnie Nathanielsz

To: Mr. Ronnie Nathanielsz, Boxing Journalist
From: Mr. Ricardo Lois, Boxing "Writer"
CC: Manny Pacquiao Fans Around The Globe.
Dear Mr. Nathanielsz,
I see you took time from your busy writing schedule to address my recent comments on Boxing Confidential Radio. Your article addresses my comments regarding the overall physical well-being of Manny Pacquiao in his upcoming "fight" with Oscar De La Hoya and my views on some of Pacquiao's hardcore fanatics.
Today Mr. Michael Marley, boss hog at Boxing Confidential, took the time to "defend" my recent comments on Boxing Confidential Radio, as well as my overall style of writing. While I appreciate Mr. Marley's support, I am my own man and want to make what I meant and what I do crystal clear with no misunderstanding.
In my response to your very public comments regarding my comments on Pacquiao, I will be quoting your column from PhilBoxing.com.
"But what distressed if not angered us was the seeming hatred for Pacquiao which seethed in the brief portion we read in the Inquirer in which Lois claimed that the demolition of Pacquiao “will make up for what we had to put up with Pacmaniacs over the years. It will be great seeing Oscar De La Hoya knock Manny out in three rounds.”"
First and foremost, I have no hatred for Manny Pacquiao and Pacmaniacs. Just because I believe that Manny Pacquiao will loss and by knockout, does not mean I hate the man. Also, lets make something clear. I did NOT write these statements, Mr. Marley quoted me from comments on Boxing Confidential Radio. I invite you to please listen to the show and my exact comments. They come on at 41 minutes and twenty seconds.
Hes a newbie he and that Ed said Marquez wins.... ha?
are you guys genius? Ronnie are you better than the judges of the fight on Pac Marquez 3 to say Marquez win? don't make me laugh your not a comedian your not even skin head.. before you throw comments on Pacquiao you must see this first
your stupid comments on tv... ahh i know just to have an exposure on tv right? and i know you lost your bet for marquez so you say maquez win... crap you better quit your job
^^ True.. kaso mas mahirap nga naman i-respect if the comment came from biased and well known Pacquiao critics/detractors such as Ronnie Nathanielsz and Recah Trinidad.
Ano man ang pintas ng tao kay Nathanielz, isa lang ang maipupuri ko sa taong ito, di siya balimbing. Pati sa opinion niya di siya balimbing.
Wala namang mali o tamang opinion. Ang importante ay panindigan.
Kung may di sang-ayon, ganon lang talaga yun.
First, I don't read Ronnie's article because he just can't keep himself from being bias and huge a$$ kisser. But I agreed with him when he thought JMM won the fight.
Noon pa mainit na ulo ko dyan sa kups na yan eh nung kampi pa yan sa toyota kasi crispa ako nun kaya kampi ako kay Emy Arcilla.
Nathanielsz was an amateur boxer during his youth in Sri Lanka. Setting aside questions of how good he was and what was his record, fact is, if you have fought in the ring, it gives you a different perspective compared to the regular guy on the street.
Kahit ilang boxing matches na napanood natin, iba yung nakipagpalitan ka ng kamao sa ibabaw ng lona.
I find his commentary on boxing matches, not just on this recent fight, as being arrogant. Ang dating ay nagmamagaling ang leaves no space for a differing opinion.
Maybe that is brought about by the fact that he was a boxer before.
Malamang sa loob-loob niya, he is asking, "Naging boxer ka ba?".
Nadaanan ko yung guesting niya sa show ni Dong Puno, wala pang 1 minuto, nilipat ko na...
Ironically, Ronnie also hosts The Main Event which is also shown on AKTV. Where does his loyalty really lie?
Ronnie also works for Viva TV as its sports CEO.
I also heard that he resigned from Inquirer as a columnist and is back with Manila Standard Today.
Teka lang bat ang daming galit kay Nathaniles dito? Dahil ba sa sinabi nya na para sa kanya si marquez talaga ang nanalo..mga die hard pactards talaga oh ayaw tumangap ng kritisismo.Ang gusto nyo siguro marinig tulad ni chino trinidad kulang na lang halikan wetpu ni pakyaw..Eh opinion ng tao yun kaya wag kayong parang pactards dyan kung makapag-react..
Saka sa tingin ko marquez din talaga nanalo.
bakit apektado kayo sa opinion ni ronnie?
