The rumor is, although its not on print media, the PNGRFL has been flooded with millions from donors and even AusAID as well. Adrian Lam has done some dirty deals before and paid himself and his mates from Ozy who he happened to contract them as technical officers, although most of them were street kids just to make some quick money.
Planti ol PNG officials ino hamamas tru lo displa and thats when the heated argument began,,,
He made some huge chunks of money while his PNG counterparts, especially the players and the team manageres were earning peanuts and thats one of the reasons why he was forced to resign.
I think that is possibly true as some of the players on the 2008 World Cup squad here were not happy on how the sponsorship money was being dished out and how they were paid their daily allowance.
Instead of protecting people and washing these issues under the carpet, PNGRFL should have the balls (if these allegation are true) to come out publicly and state and investigate him and his cohorts.
I remember his brother was the team trainer or something, I don't know who the phuck he was and what knowledge or experience he had of league. Michael Marum seemed disappointed too so he should know a bit more.
Put him out in the public and he should be sacked as a assistanct coach of St George Illawarra and have his name screwed up too. Who is he?
But ol PNGRFL tu corrupt so they can't do that as 4 fingers point back at you.
No wonder everyone was wondering why the PNG team never progressed quite well in the World Cup, apart from the physically playing on the field, it is also a pscyhological and emotional game. If you are not happy, it goes to show too in your output!!
Tell ya a fact the 2008 Kumuls world cup were paid $100 a day allowance the Local sp cup players in the Kumuls team were only getting $50 a day the other $50 went to PNGRFL and if any local players complained about it they were told they will never play for the Kumuls again.Hopefully Gene makes it equal for all players not the bemobile players and overseas players.So let's hope Gene gets this team firing I think it's time we moved on from Lam and Bennett.Time for a change see what happens.
what the phuck is happening? why are all these so called professional people mixed up with self greed and pride.we normal papua new guinea rugby league fans,and especially proud kumuls supporters don't wanna know all this crap internal politics and differences within the PNGRFL and kumuls team management.we want our national league team to be competitive to the other super power league playing nations.
Enough of these phucking politics.If a certain administrator(s) are interested in politics,you can wait patiently for the upcoming 2012 phucking national elections to contest and see your potential there.
Leave rugby league alone.we want the best!
One way to get to the bottom of all this mess is to run an audit on all the transactions of the Kumul Team expenses ever since.
I agree with the other post, as a diehard supporter of PNG talent in Rugby League, perhaps I should resign the diehard status and hang up my support for Rugby League for ever as I did for PNG Soccer. I just hate misappropriation and dishonesty of all proportions. That is the reason PNG has not progressed for 35 years. Look, we have dick heads in the wrong places.
If coaches, trainers, administrators and support staff are abusing resources, it is time for me to pack up and switch off. As I have a business to run and mouths to feed, dump the Kumuls.
This article was posted in the Sydney Morning Herald website today written by Danny Widler chanel 9 rugby league reporter - Back-room politics forced Lam out
THERE'S a lot more to the Adrian Lam resignation as Papua New Guinea coach than has been reported. It's been said that he quit because of his commitment to the Dragons, but the politics in PNG are what forced him out. The new chairman, Gary Juffa, has been interfering at every level - and Lam was being told which players he could pick and which staff he could have working with him. It was a totally unacceptable situation. if Juffa is ousted before the Four Nations Lam may still end up as coach.
So no wonder why Lam resigned if this Juffas running the show.I hope Genes got some balls to stand up to him and don't be come his YES MAN.I'm sure time will tell in the next couple of weeks
if you have been in png for the last 4 years you would know. he has done alot for the kumuls.
if you had never worked or played under him than shut your face! dont just say that coz of rumours you heard......
Although I agree that they left the selections too late and PNGRFL interfered, truth will prevail in the end!
I was suprised to see Stanley jet in from England and being declared a coach of some sort even before Lam resigned. That raised a bit of eyebrow but then again Stanley is a "Kaukau mangi" Juffa will fear him.
Lets hope for the best but I have already quit following Kumuls, it will be a white wash no doubt!!
I have never heard such a load of crap in my life. Lam doing dirty deals, AUSAid funds to PNGRL, recruting streetkids for official positions.....ROFL.
Firstly AUSAid has allocated funds for thr millenium goal which is not controlled by PNGRL althought that is why Juffa is throwing his weight around. Why do you think Lam warned of his resignation back in July? Everyone has forgotten that. Andrew Voss was on the money on The Footy Show and Danny Wilder knows as well why Lam stepped down.
And for the record Lam never said he resigned was just unavailable for the Four Nations. The guy has done more for PNGRL than any other person and you guys want to make accusations based on rumours and not facts....you should all hang your heads in shame.
Here's one for the record.... Garry Juffa offered Fi-ta 5000 Kina for the artwork for the Four Nations authentic jerseys so he could get cheap chinese copies made to sell to you guys the true fans. Any doubters feel free to contact them.
I guess it is much clearer now why Lam made himself unavailable for the 4 nations.
He was smart enough not to be involved with anything Juffa has his hands on.
Now we see what the current administration is capable of, we need to hope that they are removed in November so the Kumuls can get back on track to achieving their full potential under the guidance of a professional team of coaching staff.
Keith Peters, Ray Thompson, Jason Chan and David Mead were all at Sundays game and I understand they were all available to play but were either not chosen by Juffa or refused to play because of how Lam had been treated. All the staff also pulled out for the same reason.
So Garry Juffa I hope you are reading this and if not I hope someone you know is reading this and passes on all the negative feedback you are getting. You have ruined what was once an inspirational team and reduced them to something resembling Park Football Ameatures.
David mead? Jason Chan ready to play? JJ I thought they were injured.
With a psychopathetic like you commenting and carrying on like if this is the only Kumuls that you would not like to see........Please go and watch the Netball or maybe pingpong or something. That really will suite you...
