What if... (related to Residency Rule and the "Cayetano Law")

The UAAP's decision to not let Cani play another year got me thinking:

How do players react to their year(s) in residency? What if they were offered alternatives through other leagues, local or foreign?

I think that the UAAP has gone WAY TOO FAR in enforcing the residency rules in the first place. Unfortunately, there are not too many attractive alternatives for other UAAP juniors players or similar players that are forced to undergo residency.

Why there aren't too many UAAP juniors players going the route of Raphael Banal? Did I miss something? Why is even postgraduate prep school or JUCO ball in the US not attractive to our juniors players, let alone playing in the lower tiers of leagues in Europe or other Asian countries (e.g. China)?

What about the local NCAA and NAASCU (and other provincial leagues), then? Sino kaya ang nagpapasikat doon sa ngayon? Mga "promdi" players at mga Africans? :hmm: Think back to the 1980's / 1990's, when the NCAA and the UAAP had equal rights to the juniors players of both divisions. Then the UAAP distanced further from the NCAA by enforcing some rules that made recruiting stricter in the UAAP (the NCAA followed many years later). Dapat pansinin na rin ng UAAP na wake-up call na rin ang "Cayetano Rule" sa sobrang kastriktuhan nila over the years na naging "unfair" sa ibang mga collegiate leagues dito sa ating bansa.

Remember Soc Rivera? Naglaos siya dahil sa isang taon na nabangko sa UP. Jerie Pingoy? That remains to be seen. Even Raphael Banal was a bench guy in the US NAIA level (hindi yata siya sikat noong UAAP juniors siya), so Kobe Paras (kahit hindi siya galing ng UAAP originally) is the first definite litmus test for the Philippines to US route in men's college basketball. Maraming mga ibang bansa na ang may mga players na naglalaro sa Division I ng US NCAA (particularly Australia, New Zealand, Serbia, Cameroon, Nigeria, former USSR countries, etc.), so how do we prove that we place our passion for basketball so importantly? By placing some of our best stars to play college basketball abroad. Unfortunately, wala gaanong daming coaches sa US ay may Filipino connections sa sports, kaya stuck ang mga potential prospects dito. :mecry:

    The team B route so far is the only safe route to go especially considering how high profile it is to be part of a UAAP team. Gusto ko rin na mag NCAA nalang sila para sila yung bida pero you can't deny the scholarship offer that provides a good education as well. May perks pa like sponsorship and free stuff. Ayun nga lang pag may residency ka, di ka nakakalaro masyado and if ever masasanay naman laro mo sa laro ng team B. Hopefully di manyayari yun but I expect na matatagalan sila bago masanay na talaga sila sa laro ng UAAP.


    For the abroad route: I guess it's the money involved. High risk high reward if you go to the states. Hindi ka artista dun and bawal ka maghanap ng sponsor. Kaya siguro si Kobe Paras lang talaga yung nakaka-US kasi afford ng family niya eh.

    Tho I'm upset cause even if napakaraming pera ang nakalaan for youth basketball, hindi natin sila pinapadala sa ibang para tignan ng scouts. Either FIBA tournaments lang and yung mga Asian Nike/Adidas camps na hindi naman binibisita ng scouts (e.g camps ng Nike sa China pero walang good enough Chinese presence sa US). Kahit sa ibang sports ganun kaya di rin tayo nakaka-excel, they're stuck here for too long. I really feel yung mga batang Gilas dapat nakikisali yan sa mga camps abroad like sa US or Australia or kahit gawa lang sila ng training camp abroad and invite scouts. Sayang lang kung sa UAAP/NCAA jrs sila. Tho ayun nga, di nila kaya yun mag-isa cause ang mahal. Dapat may tulong ng SBP or kahit sino man na mag-sponsor sa trip nila dun.
  • Hanggang ngayon napaka-useless pa rin para sakin yang residency rule naman na kasi na yan e. I mean... Basketball yan kung maglalaro edi maglaro. Paarte lang yan para macontrol yung championship. Hehe.

    Unnecessary roadblock talaga ang residency rule for me. Parang droga ang effect ng mga tinamaan nito sa iba. :depressed:

    Well, good for the eagles, I guess. So that's about it! :) And also, I think this topic is now concluded. Good luck to our teams this season.

    the rule shouldn't be retroactive as any other bill passed into law is, but ateneo and cani's dad are putting the full-court pressure on the uaap and national u to give cani a release...
