Trillanes wants Aquino’s uncle stripped of POC presidency


Philippine Olympic Committee chair Jose “Peping” Cojuangco, Jr.

MANILA, Philippines—Senator Antonio Trillanes wants the country’s national sports associations to replace Philippine Olympic Committee chair Jose “Peping” Cojuangco, Jr., weeks after the Philippines once again failed to win a medal in the recently concluded Olympic Games in London.

Trillanes, the chair of the Senate committee on amateur sports competitiveness, minced no words in showing his disappointment with the POC president and called Cojuangco “the greatest stumbling block to sports development [in the country].”

“For decades, sports development in the country failed to move forward and has consistently been derailed from its tracks due to lack of clear vision and necessary will for reforms,” Trillanes said.

“The way I see it, we must expect more dismal performances from our athletes unless our NSAs elect a new POC president and replace Mr. Cojuangco,” he said.

Trillanes’ committee is looking into the state of the Philippine sports after the debacle in London.

Trillanes is also the author of Senate Bill 3092 that would create the Department of Sports. He said the the agency would formulate policy, plan, coordinate, implement, promote and develop sports and physical fitness in the country.

He is also supporting a proposed measure creating the Philippine High School for Sports in order to institutionalize efforts for talent pooling and training of young athletes to produce future champions.

    i agree to replace cojuanco, but to put a department of sports?  naku pang-gatasan nanaman na departamento yan.

    mas mabuti pang i-delegate na lang yan sa pribadong sektor.

    pag-involve ang gobyerno, maraming padrino.

    • duviz7533

      you hit the head of the nail pare ko pareng jun go..go on i m behind you….pati pagpapadala ng athlete may palakasan talaga…bawasan din ng mga coaches at kung ano pa

    • clavenilo

      Tama ka dito.  The US olympic teams is funded privately. We don’t need additional departments or sports czar marami na tayo heads of anti smuggling, anti poor, anti drugs wala naman ngyari.  Dept of sports e politicians naman mag nominate yan so wala din.

      E divide na lang ng mag private companies which sports they will focus to support . PLDT boxing, SMC track field, SM archery weightlifting swimming or cycling. Huwag na yan ibigay sa govt .  Hayaan mo si Manny or Henry Sy mag hire ng world class coaches and trainers .

      Tingnan mo yang athletics natin, and head is Silva Neto , 73 years old na senior citizen na di pa napalitan.

  • tonto_ka

    Out of poor performance PEPING should tender his RESIGNATION after Olympic’s debacle…

  • pilosopo4

    Sports should be devoid of politics..Pnoy will not dare ask his uncle to step down..

    • Meilyn Mendoza

      He should! His uncle is overstaying in that position, given the fact that he wasn’t able to accomplish anything.

  • Magsasaka

    ano ba alam ni peping?magnegosyo ng marumi, dayain ang buwis kaya talagang lugmok ang ating sports dahil sa ogag na yan.

    • Karen Delos Santos

      tama po kayo diyan! dapat ‘di na pinauupo sa puwesto ang mga tulad niya. kaya saludo ako sa’yo sen. trillanes! may paninindigan ka talaga!

  • boypalaban

    in fairness pagdating sa medal…mukhang pahirapan talaga lalo na kaunti lang naman ang ipinadala…at matitindi rin talaga yung mga taga ibang bansa….

    pero wala nang karapatan manatili pa yang si cojuangco diyan sa POC…may mga away pa yang mga yan sa PSC etc…walang pakialam mga yan sa atleta…sa makukuha nila, yan ang pinagkakainteresan nila.

  • Bert

    For once, meron naman palang matinong sinasabe itong si Trillanes. He is right, Uncle Peping should go. Let us see to whom PNOY will have a big ear, UNCLE PEPING or Trillanes, a political ally.

  • $20926843

    I have doubts of Trillanes in the past but this bold proposal of him regarding the dismal leadership of cojuangco , I fully agree.  Since the incumbency of cojuangco at POC, Phillipine sports went into a tailspin of decadence and mediocrity. Majority of the NSA’s head are his stooges and has not achieved much because they were infected by the brand of toxic politics which cojuangco brought fore into these country’s sports bodies…..

  • KurakotNaPinoy

    Dapat lang tanggalin si Cojuanco sa POC…

    Hahaha…The North Korean rule applied to not to the athlete but to the, er, head. 

    Why not?  I am getting old and I haven’t seen a Philippine Olympic Gold.

    From Wikipedia, List of Olympic Medals for the Philippines:





     Philippines (PHI)

    Summary: Gold -> 0 (ZERO)

    • Karen Delos Santos

      Nakakaawa talaga ang kinahitnatnan ng sports sa Pilipinas. Dapat talaga ayusin na ang POC. tanggalin na si Cojuangco! maglagay ng mas karapat-dapat!

  • clavenilo

    2 term POC president na yan si Peping or already served 8 long years na wala performance , he should resign na lang . Isa pa yong Chairman ng POC ( I don’t know why may chairman pa ) Congressman Monico Fuentebella , dapat palitan din ito no background in sports at all but managed to get himself elected . He should decide  if he will remain a full time congressman or chairman of POC ( for what ??? ).  Sa mga press releases pa lang nila dalawa halata man they are not cut out for these positions. 

  • walaKA

    Mr. Cojuangco has been leading this commission for 8 long years..Correct me if I’m wrong..Within those years, there were no significant reforms in sports and its quite evident..Needless to say, but it’s pretty obvious in London..

    • Meilyn Mendoza

      there should be an overhaul of the whole system! let’s start with Peping Cojuangco!

  • juandelacruzii

    dapat pati sa education system magbago. sports must be given equal importance same as math, english and other acads.

  • initrd

    Ayos yan one should come down and accept he was doing any good for POC. Give others a chance.

  • danesreyes

    i really wonder, anong meron kay peping para maging head ng POC? obviously, he is not qualified for the position. kawawa ang sports sa bansa natin

  • nparvus1202

    Para lang kasi maipasok ang anak niya. Mahilig mangabayo.

  • simpleng_mamamayan23

    ok sana si PNOY e..kupal lang talaga kamag-anak nya at nagpapa-uto lang sya

  • Ratzkey

    Papano ba naman magka medalya ang pinoy eh kulang na nga sa height, kapos pa sa pera at suporta sa gobyerno. Mabuti pa tigilan na yang olympic2 commitee na yan pang local sports lang naman talaga tayo wala naman tayong binatbat sa ibang bansa. Tsaka ang pondo sa mga committee na yan ibigay na sa mahihirap pangkain. Ikamamatay ba natin kung hindi tayo nag medalya o sumali sa olympics na yan? Kung sino yung may kaya na sumali, eh sa sariling bulsa na sila kumuha. Kung wala eh mag araro na lang may makain pa, sayang lang ang pondo. Ang yabang nagpadala pa ng atleta sa London baka pamasahe muntik pang kinapos.

  • wanadelacruz

    agree.  need  professional managers to head sports committees, not politicians.  dapat may qualifications and good educational background and experience sa sports.  pag mga politicians pa rin ang mag-hahandle, bulsa pa rin at boto ang priority nyan.   

  • Felipe

    Matagal na dapat pinatalsik!

    • Peter

      tama, patalsikin na yan!!

  • patriot2008

    Kung “matuwid na daan” ang masusundan, dapat talagang masibak sa pwesto si Peping Cojuangco, kasi talagang very big performance failure ang nagawa nya. Failure of performance shaming the whole country, especially since we could obviously have done better, should mean dismissal from one’s job. Gaya ng sinabi, maraming mas mahirap at mas maliit na bansa, at pati ang mga malalapit na bansa sa ASEAN ay nagkaroon ng medal. Tama na, Sobra na, Palitan na.

  • patriot2008

    Pero ang mga bansa na kalapit lang natin kagaya ng Thailand, at mga mas mahirap sa atin gaya ng Ethiopia (with starving children and famine), at mas maliit sa atin gaya ng Grenada, nagkaroon ng medalya sa 2012 olympics. Hindi sa walang pera o kakayahan, ang dahilan ay incompetence, lack of spirit, and lack of motivation and training, etc

  • john cortez

    di na dapat sabihan….layas na bago pa madamay ang iba(BSCA)….

  • Komentador

    di dapat politiko ma-elect as POC head. Dapat yung may degree at experience sa sports management. ganon din sana sa PSC at sa mga NSAs. ang businessmen at politicians dapat supporters lang ng programs, ipaubaya sa former athletes/coaches ang management ng bawat sports groups. KASO, paano paghihiwalayin ang SPORTS and POLITICS? parang imposible!!!

  • Abnoy’s Mongoloidism

    Aba, mukang ichapwera na si Trillanes. Di pa kasi secure ang posisyon ni Trillanes sa LP senatorial slate, kaya nag-iingay sya.

    Pero ingat lang kayo kay Peping. Kahit kalaban ng UNA ang LP, si PEPING ay chariman ng UNA.  Nung nag-swear in sina Gwendolyn at Mitos, si PEPING ang nag-officiate. Puutangna itong si PEPING, namamangka. Puutangnang intsik!

    • Karen Delos Santos

      Dapat kasi labas na yan sa usapang pulitika! wala namang kinalaman ang POC sa UNA eh. kaya di umuunlad ang Pilipinas dahil lahat na lang hinahakuan ng pulitika.

  • basyong

    dapat sa pugak na eto maimpeach at imbestigahan kung saan napunta yung pondo ng POC. ilabas yung SALN at dollar account para naman mabigyan ng katarungan ang dating cj corona hehehehe what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

  • Pork_Republik

    Idagdag na lang yun budget ng Sports sa pambili ng fighter jets, sasayang lang ng pera wala naman tayong napala diyan sa sports sports na yan. Plane ticket, hotel bills at miscellaneous expenses lang ang naibalik sa mga taxpayers.

    Fighter jets gamit na gamit pampasabog sa mga Chinese poachers yan ang dapat pondohan! 

  • Baket?

    I would have given Mr. Trillanes 3 consecutive terms in the senate had he taken the likes of Peping Cojuangco during one of his military misadventures. People like Peping who latch on to his sister and now his nephew’s popularity and political power have no place in this new society of “daang matuwid”. People like Peping should not exist. They are bad for PNoy, bad for the country and bad for free and fair competition.

  • GMMTC11

    Dapat matagal nang pinalitan kung talagang seryoso si PNOY.

    We hope that this senate bill of trillanes will is the competitive sports that a country win respect and recognition among the elite member of international community, whether you’re belong to a third world or developing nations. 

  • Bea Pnzln

    I agree. Find someone else. Someone younger. Someone with new ideas, fresh start.

  • Sam Sy

    Finally, somebody noticed. It’s like the emperor w/ no clothes, Cojuangco has no significant accomplishment, vision to boast about.

  • pugadlawin

    Sen. Trillanes – MAY this be your CRUSADE.
    Success of the Philippines in 2016 will depend on YOU.

    Undoubtedly, Mr. Peping Cojuangco’s face is as bad as his morals.

    Had he done his job, the Phils. could have won in the Olympics.

  • MrJoseRizal

    AGREE!!! May you follow through and be serious on this Sen. Trillanes

  • Tyler Go

    After 48 years, yes to a department of sports, Trillanes is championing it, hope the other solons support the bill.

  • Ana

    Who ever is the head of the POC, still the Philippines is far from winning any medals in the Olympics.  Our only hopefuls are the boxers, the rest, don’t send them. Just a waste of money.    

    • Tyler Go

      And the last time we won a medal — a silver medal — was in the late 90s, when Onyok Velasco brought home a boxing silver medal.

  • robrano

    Very very good., it could make real champs. Because in most sports, a champion can not choose whom to fight, where to fight, making sure to escape independent doping checks incl. blood tests, as “hero” Paquiao does. For sure he knows why he has to avoid such tests, and Mayweather knows why he requests it.
    Or what was the reason that Manny did not take the offer of the richest man on earth to fight a young Mexica ( not only the pensineers ) for a guaranteed 65 million Dollar bourse, together with ads and TV income about 4000 million pesos? The only hook was fighting in Mexico City, where contrary to Las Vegas blood test would be requested and urine not “supplied” in the private room with the private doctor, out of any independent control.

  • kismaytami

    Makapal talaga muks ng tsekwang si Peping, nag-antay pa siya na may mamuna sa kapalpakan niya. Ni isang singkong kusing na gintong medalya, walang naipasok sa Pilipinas.

  • duchess

    Yes, finally we might have a chance in winning! Yipee!

  • speedstream2

    The good senator doesn’t have to lambast the current POC head, who can be asked to stepped aside for somebody else who can hopefully do a better job. Perhaps he will be gracious enough to accede. And shouldn’t the incumbent NSA heads also do the same as a matter of course? Btw, what has the good senator’s committee done in furtherance of amateur sports competitiveness? Maybe we can be enlightened a little more on this matter. Incidentally, why not bring in the Pacman to help fire up things in sports development? For one, isn’t boxing where we have a good shot at an Olympics medal?


    Bakit ngayon lang Trillanes? Matagal na dapat sipain yan si pepeng, tangalin na!

    Trillanes, malapit na ang election ano? Nag-iingay ka na ngayon?

  • Jhhayme

    ang tanong? tangalin ba yan ni Pnoy? kapatid yan ng nanay cory niya

  • imongredneck

    Trillanes, work on healthy economy, healthy educated people and you’ll have a real world class athletes. Meanwhile stop wasting people’s money on this foolish aspiration.

  • tweakthor

    KNEE JERK REACTION ….  come to think of it, Peping has the best chance to secure needed funding.  What we need to bolster sports is more funds, plenty of it and  properly channeled to athlete search and training…. good planners are plenty …DATUNG ang wala!!!!.

    • reddfrog

      Unfortunately, he had his chances, and the results are dismal. So time for something, or someone new.

    • RHumabon

      Many different nationalities who won medals in the recent London Olympic Games  trained hard for 4 years or more under American coaches right in the U.S. . .A U.K. athlete won gold for sprint while the silver medal went to an American. Both trained under the same coach in Oregon. . .What I think is needed is for the best Filipino athletes – who won their respective sports from the district, provincial, regional, national, asian & other athletic meets or competition – to train in the U.S. . .Perhaps our best boxers will train under Pacman’s coach Freddie Roach in Hollywood, California. . .Corporate sponsors are needed for their stay in the U.S. . . Seek the assistance of the Fil-Am communities, for families to provide the Pinoys/Pinays their home away from home. . .These are just suggestions for Peping Cojuangco to consider so Filipino athletes may finally garner medals, perhaps as early as the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

  • diamond

    Kung sinuportahan sana niya yong world champs na rowing di may medalya sana kahit bronze lang.

    • adam_d_ant

      kabayan, with due respect rowing ay isang sport na aabutin ng siam-siyam bago makasingit ang mga pinoy.  kmpara sa mga muscular na rowers pagdating sa olympics, magmumukhang mga bansot ang mga pinoy.

      rowing?  zero ang chances na manalo.

      • tipay

        lahat naman nyan na pinadadala natin e zero ang chances, sana wala na tayong ipinadala sa olympic. 

      • Jan Mark Caratao

        He is refering perhaps to dragon boat where we got 5 golds and 2 silvers in the world championships in Florida… BTW, dragon boat and rowing are two separate discipline. I should know. I am a paddler!

  • Pedro Mateo

    If a politician will hold a kind of sport then that certain sport will soon fail. Politician should stay out of sport because they will only look their own vested interest. . Peping should resign however I doubt because this person had no honor for the country but honor for himself. . Kundi lang pinanganak na milyonaryo sa kangkongan . . . askal din . . .  

  • John Shinn III

  • AlexC105

    I agree with Sen. Trillanes na dapat palitan na si Peping Cojuangco sa POC; after all Cojuangco has done nothing for sports for the 8 years he’s been in that capacity.

    Similar to an objection by another reader, kailangan ba mag-create ng Department of Sports? That idea is B.S. Maraming ibang gastos and kailangan i-prioritize ng gobyerno;a Department of Sports  will soak up resources that should go elsewhere.

    Isa pa, walang timely accountability and government agencies. Before you know it politics and padrino system will be mixed in and another messy bureaucracy is created. The NSAs need independence but at the same time need to be accountable. Sports development should be funded by the private sector, specifically the conglomerates should pitch in.

  • Bastonero

    Panahon na para alisin yan, bakit ba nandyan yan? Wala namang nagawa sa sport si dating Tongressman ah? Meron ba?

  • tadasolo

    Mr. Trillanes another government agency will not do the job. Governmental functions in the Philippines by their track record are a dismal failure. Look at the flooding in Metro Manila and no solution is in sight. Look at the rebellion by communist and muslim there is no end in sight. Look at the poverty and squatters in Manila there is no end in sight, look at the pollution and traffic problem in metro manila there is no end in sight. Before you proposed another window dressing and make it appear like you are trying to fix the problem of sports, FIX ALL THE PROBLEMS ABOVE FIRST. We do not need another government agency. 

    By the way on matters of sports, why are other countries successful in sports while the Philippines is not. Well most of those countries have tradition and early development programs starting from age of 10. They establish a so called “farming” community not thru national programs but thru local initiatives. You cannot pay lip service and blame one person to the condition of the sports in the Philippines. This is a cultural and societal failure to provide, encouraged, support and build facilities for kids in early development to pursue sports not only for competition but also for recreation. Western countries are into sports for many reason and paramount to them is development of solid character and motivation which translate into other positive contribution into national well being. 

    One major flaw into our system is the absence of local and parental support for these development to flourish and the most important the absence of sports facilities and open spaces and a concentration to one dimensional attention to basketball at the expense of other sports program. WHAT YOU NEED IS A CONSISTENT EFFORT TO CHALLENGE and motivate instead pursuing A FILIPINO TIME AND “TESTED pastime of blaming others for a problem. IT IS NOT THE UNCLE, it is the system that is a failure

    • pangitbudhiko

      Nuong olympic weeks meron mga naglabasan na  news article tungkol sa mga ATHLETES NG bansang china. Ang bansa china thru their local government unit takes or looks for children who have the potential to be a strong athlete. The child is taken by the sport body as soon as the kid is off the diaper and starts training the kid in a sport where  they think he/she will shine.  and they are given free education, the family is also given compensation by the local government. The training for the kid is 7 days a week 10 hours a day. until the kids is old and good enough to compete at the olympics.
      Result of that China won 38 gold, 27 silver, 23 bronze with 396 athletes.
      After the Olympics if the kid is still capable in participation in the olympic they still continue  training for the next olympic  and if not they will now be the tranier of those kids taken from their family

      Filipino athlete 11 athletes, result no medal.

      Ang bansang italy pag ang Italiano naguwi ng Gintong medalya, he/she gets $183 thousand.

      China gives gold medal winner $55K
      US gives gold medal winner $25K
      Russia Gives gold medal winner $135K
      Canada $20K for gold medal

    Senator Trillanes is correct. But all top officials have to go. A few years ago, I recall listening to an interview of the head honcho in the badminton team (forgot his name) but I was shocked in the course of the interview when it came out that the RP representative was his nephew. I think this was the last Olympics or SEA games.

        And I see a lot of funny username here in this forum, i will never associate the username as that personality of the person posting the blog.

  • Jay

    Our sports culture has not advanced quite like what our other neighbors do in years like Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Malaysia. These four countries never fail to get medals every Olympics. And they have far less people than we do, most notably Singapore and Malaysia. Cojuangco shud be gracious enough to step down and allow others to try their hands on the organization who have authentic love for and knowledge in sports development.

  • Nic Legaspi

    I think new departments or government agencies will not solve the problem. Lagi na lang pag may problema, gagawa tayo ng bagong agency. We already have a bloated bureaucracy with overlapping government functions, it’s already very chaotic! What we should do is put in place leaders with clear vision — starting with short-term goals and going long-term shortly afterwards. E kung si Cojuangco e gusto lamang magpadala ng kaunting atleta sa Olympics at walang balak manalo ng medalya at magkaroon ng sophisticated na sports training program e di kailangan na nga syang tanggalin.

       nic, what we should do is put everything in perspective….tama ka, bloated ang bureaucracy dahel sa dami ng departments at overlapping functions…pero dapat may specific focus and functions ang bawat departments na to…tulad ng sa education, health, etc…so sa sports, sinu ang dapat umasikaso at mag-alaga sa kanila…

    • juandelacruzii

       kelangan parin ng dept of sports kasi ngaun magulo ang sports sa bansa parang a piece of everything sya,. sa deped, sa doh, sa iba pa. ang poc naman tali ang kamay sa pagpaptupad ng mga nararapt na gawin,. sila lang taga tago ng pera pero wala silang magawa para baguhin ang bulok na sistema.


    Trillanes do not understand the program of other countries that wins Gold in the Olympics. The athletes in the philippines normally are from the Military or Private personalities that has also doing a living to support their families, in other countries like the US or Japan their athletes are doing nothing except to train for perfection( in short term it is their profession) unless philippines will adopt this kind of program I think the Olympic gold is not far to reach.

    • JessicaDane

       i don’t think its fair for you to say that trillanes do not understand the program….i don’t think that somebody will be able to function as a senator if he doesn’t know how to do his job….trillanes authored senate bill 3092….

      • Mike_1974

        come on jessicadane? trillanes was elected senator out of people’s angst against GMA!!!! Do you think if GMA was doing a good job, Trillanes will win? He has done the Honasan-style!!! and where is Honasan now? corrupt and very corrupt!!!!


        Most senators have their ghost bill writers and the bill of trillanes supports only the creation or renaming of the existing agency, not for the welfare of talented/gifted athletes. 

    • uk_uk_ak_ak

      I dont think you understand. Reason why POC needs to have a new leader is for new programs to  have better chance of being implemented. Program like what you suggested.


        It is not the changing of commissioner or the name of the agency the answer to the quest for gold in which the bill of trillanes only tackles.  It is the bill that states that gifted/talented athletes will be employed and supported by the government starting from their training to their retirement.

    • juandelacruzii

      pwede. kaso lang dapat makakuha muna tayo ng talgang dedicated at syempre yung facilities and other things needed e prepared na.

  • peter_payper

    I dont know why NSAs picked peping as POC president. what a crying shame.

  • Noel

    Correct.  This ugly Peping tarnishes the image of the Aquinos and Cojuangcos.  Remember the Kamag-anak Inc. during Cory’s time.  Now that he’s not in politics, he’s pushing his wife to return.  Peping now uses sports as his milking cow.

    • JK1000

      Nakalimutan mo si Danding Cojuangco, isang aso ni Marcos na nagpayaman din

      • Noel

        Aso nga ni Marcos pero hindi niya kasundo ang side ni Cory at babalung Peping.

    • scusi777

      Yes, Kamaganak, Inc., remind me who were they?

    • mave

      FYI lang Pare private yang POC na yan non-governmental organization, un pondo nyan hindi galing sa government.
      Gusto mo ikaw na lang umupo madami ka namn yata pera eh.

      • Noel

        POC private?  Kailan pa?  At least, I’m sure it’s just semi-private.  Private o government, the fact that it’s the Babalu Peping heading it means darkness for the sports.

  • JessicaDane

    i really think that peping should resign in the name of delikadesa

    • Ganymede

       Yan ay kung meron siya nun..hahaha

    • pangitbudhiko

      again trillanes is opening his mouth without knowing first the facts.
      the head of the Philippine Olympic Committee is chosen from the athletic association of the Country, like the ””basketball federation of the the philippines,  The wrestling association of the Philippines, and so on and so forth.

      And from the head of this sport federation they choose the P.O.C. the president has nothing to do with the P.O.C.
      In fact if abnoy dip his hands at the chossing of the P.O.C.
      the philippines will get a letter from the International olympic committee as a reminder not to  meddle in affairs of the P.O.C’
      I think this happened something ago. when the government tried to intervened in the selection of the P.O.C., the I.O.C. told the phil. Gov’t to back off

  • jenniferjoycuevas

    i cudnt agree more with trillanes.he is right that phil sports development has failed to move forward due to ills like lack of reforms.sad but clear manifestation is the poor performance of our athletes in the olympics and sea games these past few years.

  • Elias

    SINO BA YUN MAYABANG NA TRILLANES. Mr. Cojunangco was elected by POC kaya wait na lang mag end yun term niya para dun mag kandidato yan Trillanes na yan wala nman ginawa sa senado puro dakdak SHITTTT

    • Audrey Valdez

      sya lang naman ang Chairman ng Committee on amateur Sports sa Senado kaya naman alam nya sinasabi nya.

      • Karen Delos Santos

        Hay naku, tama ka diyan, Audrey. yung iba kasi satsat ng satsat, di muna inaalam ang kailangang alamin. malamang may pakialam si Senator diyan kasi nga Chaiman siya ng 
        Committee on Amateur Sports sa senado. 

  • elmerjandoc

    Oh my – I dont like Sen.Trillanes – pero sa pagkakataong ito – Saludo ako sa kanya..Tama lahat ng sinabi nya..paano magiimprove ang sports development natin..ang tagal tagal ng hawak ni Peping yan walang pagbabago!!! Its about time someone else steer our sports/olympics program development.    

  • Mike_1974

    The way I see it, whoever heads the POC will make no difference. Its not because of Peping! Its been like that for the longest time!! 

    What we need is better incentives to athletes and continued support for them until retirement!Training has to start when they are little, just like the Chinese do!!
    I dont know how our once heroic athletes are doing right now? But if the athletes are given better support and incentives and retirement benefits, those who wants to be one will be more enthusiastic about being one!

    • uk_uk_ak_ak

      Its not because of Peping!
      Your suggestion is worth implementing but the question is…If its not Peping, who do you think will push for this?

      • Mike_1974

        I guess you dont get the message on the first paragraph. whoever will head will not make any difference! even if you change the head of POC, the process will take more than five years or a decade before we can see/reap the rewards!

  • Carlo Bruno

    That is why we need to create a Department of Sports in order to centralized who will be in charge for funding, grass root development, facilities and training of our athletes. It is ashamed  that other poor country manage to get a gold medal in the recent Olympic. Because they are focus on the sports that they can excel. Unlike the present situation, the PSC and POC don’t have a clear funds to training of our athletes. They are relying on donations and sponsorship. If we don’t have a centralized sport body. This poor performance will continue. If there is Dept Of Sports, there is a clear budget for training both here and abroad, building new sports facilities and grass roots development. Only one in charge, the secretary. So there is no blame game, finger pointing as we see now. Moreover, If there a DOS athletes old, new or retired who serve the country will have a retirement benefits, after career jobs like coach etc. The benefits is like they served as public employee like teacher or police man with health and retirement benefits base on their performance during their active career as an athlete…  IMHO. :)

    Every time this douche bag lies, his chin gets longer. Hence.

    • scusi777

      Do not digress from the topic.

      • w33k3nd3r

        that’s my point.. he’s a liar…

  • kalikasanipagtanggol

    Ano pa kasi ang ginagawa at kapit tuko pa rin ito si peping conjuangco sa posisyon na yan? Ibigay mo na sa karapat dapat yan at baka sakali may mabago pa……..

  • Zen

    pagkakaintindi ko ang POC hindi govt agency; isa itong pribadong ahensya o NGO na itinalaga ng Olympics upang magrepresent ng Phils sa Olympics. Wala itong perang nakukuha sa govt; bagkus sa sponsorship mula sa Olympics brand ang funding nila. Walang power ang presidente kung sino ang uupo dito. Pero pede niya i-pressure ang mga heads ng NSAs (sports association) na tumatanggap ng financial support mula sa Phil. Sports Commission, na isang govt agency. Medyo magulo no? Alam nyo ba ang US govt walang kahit isang kusing ang ibinibigay sa mga atletang kano? puro private sponsorship lang? whereas sa China suportado sila ng govt. Pero top ang US. Kailangan ba ng govt funding ang sports natin? o private support lang? gaya ng ginawa ni  MVP sa football. ngayon at least nasa radar na ng pinoy.gaya ng ginawa ni RunRio sa marathon. at least marami rami na ang tumatakbo. 

    • scusi777

      Sen Trillanes should check his facts first opening his mouth.

      • mybelle

        what he is saying is just to replace Peping, what facts are you saying?

      • juandelacruzii

         sa tingin ko isang malaking check pa nga. kaw may alam ka nabang accomplishment ng poc?

  • dead_pixel

    Magtago kana! Nandiyan na si noyAbnoy!!!

    • JUN

      parang ikaw ang mas abnoy….

      • dead_pixel

        parang lang?
        ikaw at si noyAbnoy ay talagang abnoy!

  • Ganymede

    Agree to Senador Trillanes.. nangungurakot lang itong si babalu sa POC.

  • Cerise David

    What the heck is Cojuangco doing in POC anyway?

    • juandelacruzii

       my question too.

  • pangitbudhiko


  • monses

    nag u ulyanin na si peping kya nakalimutan na un salitang delikadesa.dapat pti un mga tu tulog tulog na mga NSA leader e sipain na din,sayang lang un mga pondo nila,dapat ang pondohan lang un mga olympic sports na me laban tayo na makapag uwi ng medal sa olympics.the rest e bahala na sila maghanap ng private sponsor.


    Its about time…ilan International games na ba ang nagdaan and still kulelat parin tayo..wala kasi support ng Gobyerno and yun mga namumuno wala naman alam sa sport na hinahawakan nila…nakikisakay lang govt pag meron atleta na nananalo ng sarili nila.. hai…kelan kaya.

  • Cheska

    good to know that the senate created the committee on amateur sports and let it be headed by somebody like trillanes..

  • Cheska

    good to know that the senate created the committee on amateur sports and let it be headed by somebody like trillanes..

    • pangitbudhiko

      that would be the biggest mistake the POC will make. Usually the head of any olympic federation  is  an ex-olympic athlete

  • Shyla

    kung hindi nananalo ang mga atleta natin, e malamang nga hindi effective ang poc na yan sa regime ni peping! 

  • Rojito

    tapang talaga ni trillanes! idol mabuhay ka!

    • Karen Delos Santos

      ganyan dapat ang mga pulitiko! may paninindigan!

  • Arvy

    sana lang bago pinasok ni jose cojuanco aka peping ang POC, inalam nya muna anong function ng isang national oylmpic committee president. dapat welfare ng mga manlalaro/atleta iniisip nya. e prang hndi naman e.seems makasarili,tama si trillanes.hndi dapat gnyan inilalagay sa POC.

  • joc927

    China, 3 years before the Olympic, they will take the potential athletes from their families. In 3 years time, they will be away from their homes and be trained everyday of their lives for 9 hours or more. Kaya pagdating ng Olympic, well prepared na sila. I also read that one of the Chinese athlete sa dinaos na Olympic 2012, came to know the death of her grandmother right after she collected her gold medal. The parents didn’t like their daughter to be destructed by the sudden death of the the athlete’s grandmother. The Chinese athletes will stay and study in their training camp. Mas mahaba pang oras nila sa training kaysa 4 na oras na pagaaral nila. Ginagastusan talaga ng government ang athletes nila. Ganuon din ang Russia. Kapag naging athlete ka naman for Olympics, rest assured na ang magandang buhay nila.

    • mybelle

      kailangan nga siguro natin bigyan din sila ng incentives

      • Audrey Valdez

        at yung mga incentives na yan eh dapat di lang promises, dapat ibibigay din talaga, maraming pangako ang napapako lang… 

  • Rom

    i go for trillanes. give way peping cojuangco. u haven’t done anything good for the pinoy sports anyway, that will make u unforgettable. hanggang trapo ka lang talaga. 

  • Hey_Dudes

    In other countries the man at the top would have resigned for having failed numerous times.  But then, we are the Philippines where you are sized up by the thickness of your skin and color of your blood.

    • mybelle

      parang seppuku or otherwise popularly known as harakiri, well in the Philippines, many people should have done that if their decency and sense of integrity is intact…

    • juandelacruzii

       oo nga. hay dito namna satin kapal talga ng muka!

    • Audrey Valdez

      harakiri na kayong mga corrupt or mag resign nalang.

    • Gretel

      wala talagang delicadeza ang ibang mga pinuno dito. kahit ilang beses nang nagkakamali, gahaman pa rin sa puwesto.

  • mybelle

    we are way behind compared to our neighboring countries in terms of competitiveness in sports. 

  • Kuya_Orot

    I agree 101% with Trillanes’ proposal to remove Uncle Ali Baba from the POC. It’s about time..

  • Jing

    peping relly needs to opt out of the poc. otherwise, the stature of sports in the country will always be the same – lackluster.  

  • nanz

    Tama! wla man lang kht isa na nagbigay ng medalya sa ating bansa. At prang hindi man lang sineseryoso ang mga atleta natin.

    • mybelle

      tama ka jan Nanz…

  • Jing

    and trillanes is forever courageous in stating things straight forward. he’s correct in saying that peping needs to be replaced.  

  • mybelle

    matagal ko na syang naririnig na nag co comment pagdating sa sports, last time yung sa performance naman ng mga athletes natin sa isang competition sa China eh..

  • mybelle

    naku Jhhayme, yan ang matinding TANONG na kailangan ng matinding kasagutan.. :)

  • mybelle

    naku, yan ang matinding tanong na kailangan ng matinding katatanungan…

  • juandelacruzii

    oo nga nakakadismaya ang kabokyahan ng pinoy sa london. anu ba ang isports nitong si peping, bka sya mismo e d naman sports oriented kaya wala talagang mangyayari nyan.

  • Sean

    it is so good to know that trillanes is a sports advocate too.

  • Sophie

    i dont think peping cojuanco is someone who can handle the POC well. he should be replaced asap

  • Audrey Valdez

    ok naman sana eh, kahit kamag-anak basta nag pe-perform ng mabuti or may performance man lang sana..

  • Audrey Valdez

    ok lang naman sana kung may improvement tayo pagdating sa performance

  • Audrey Valdez

    it would be unfair naman siguro kung sasabihin nating may “Ghost Bill” writers si Senator.

  • Audrey Valdez

    naku lagot ka ngayon kay JK1000..

  • Nina Sayco

    Kudos, Senator! It’s nice to know you also care about our country’s sports program. It’s high time we start making reforms. And replacing the under-performing POC Chair is a very good start.

  • Gretel

    Tama lang po yan, Sen. Trillanes. Kailangan na nating bigyang-pansin ang ating mga atleta. Panahon na po para magkaroon ng pagbabago sa  POC. Hindi nagagampanan nang husto ni Cojuangco ang kanyang trabaho kaya dapat lamang na palitan na. Mabuhay ang mga atleta ng bayan!

  • Karen Delos Santos

    Eh bakit naman kasi nakaupo pa sa puwesto si Cojuangco kung major fail naman pala siya? Wala naman yatang alam yan sa sports eh. Palitan na yan!

    • Kevin Jimenez

       Wala naman kasing gustong kumalaban sa kanya liban kay Trillanes.

      • Karen Delos Santos

        Kaya nga saludo ako kay Trillanes! dapat lahat ng senador, ganyan. may paninindigan! 

      • Mansueta Schatz

        oo nga no sya ba yong naputsch against GMA na pumalpak na sabi pa nya sa CNN news na nakita ko na nanawagan sya sa mga tao na suportahan eh wlang tumulong walang dumating na mga tao para mapatalsik sa GMA, naghintay pa naman ako noon kung kailan dumating ang mga supporters nya…

  • Karen Delos Santos

    tsaka feeling ko kailangan talaga natin ng Dept of Sports. tapos yung head dapat nun ay yung mga expert talaga.

  • Roxanne

    nakakatuwa naman si senator trillanes at pinaguukulan niya ng pansin ang kapakanan ng ating mga atleta.

    • Liamkyle


    • Karen Delos Santos

      tama! bukod sa pogi na, magaling at maaasahan pa!

  • Karen Delos Santos

    Go, Senator! We support you! 

  • Lara Co

    “For decades, sports development in the country failed to move forward and has consistently been derailed from its tracks due to lack of clear vision and necessary will for reforms”

    • Dane

      and what we need is a good sports development program, to be handled by this proposed Dept. of Sports, which should be headed by a competent leader.

    • Gretel

      Nakakalungkot isipin na kaya tayo patuloy na kulelat sa Olympics ay dahil sa kakulangan ng suporta ng sarili nating gobyerno. Panahon na para mabigyang-pansin ang mga atleta ng bayan!

  • Ana

    mabuhay po kayo senator! nawa’y makasungkit naman tayo ng medalya sa mga susunod na kompetisyon. 

  • Kevin Jimenez

    Sinisira lang ng tiyuhin nya ang pangalan ni PNoy.

    • Dane

      I agree! we need someone who has a vision and is more competent!

  • Dane

    Finally, a politician who has a vision for this field! The problem of apathy to the plight of our athletes should be stopped. A department which concentrates on sports is very much needed in our country and it’s good to know that the good senator sees this. Good job, Senator!

    • Gretel

      bilang isang atleta ay nabubuhayan ang aking loob sa balitang ito. Nawa’y patuloy na mapansin ng ating mga pinuno ang problemang pinagdadaanan ng mga atletang Pilipino at magawan nila ng paraan upang masolusyonan ang mga ito. Mabuhay ka, Sen. Trillanes at nawa’y maipasa ang SB 3092 na ito.

  • PHtaxpayer

     Trillanes is only doing his job which is about time!  There should be public clamor for Peping’s head to roll after our country’s decline in international sports. 

  • isabela22

    • Nina Sayco

    • Allyson

      indeed, senate bill creating the department of sports is a great start!

    • Peter

      sana mapasa na yan agad para may maging mas maayos ang lagay ng athletes natin

  • Meilyn Mendoza

    Dapat matagal na itong ginawa. POC under Cojuangco’s leadership has consistently failed. He should be replaced ASAP para hindi kalawangin ang POC. 

    • Peter

      nakakahinayang ang husay ng mga atleta natin kung ganito lang

      • Redjs


    • Karen Delos Santos

      sayang lang galing nila kung ang namumuno sa kanila ay palpak. tanggalin na si Cojuangco.

  • Karen Delos Santos

    May maninindigan po kasi si Senator. Dahil alam niyang tama ang ginagawa niya, bakit siya matatakot? Dapat nga ganyan lahat ng senador, di nagpapaapekto sa mga pananakot. 

    • jenniferjoycuevas

      right. trillanes’ courage and standing by his principles had been truly admirable, right from the very start.

  • Allyson

    peping cojuanco is such an elitist. he clearly does not belong to the national olympic committee

    • jenniferjoycuevas

      this is true. walng mapapala ang ating mga atleta kung mamumuno sa poc e isang elitista

      • Meilyn Mendoza

        kung puede sana, someone who could sympathize with the athletes. 

    • Karen Delos Santos

      tama po. ang kailangan natin ay hindi elitista. dapat mahusay mamuno at mapagkakatiwalaan.

  • jenniferjoycuevas

    having jose cojuanco aka peping as president of the POC is nothing but a mistake.

    • Peter

      i think the guidlelines in selecting the poc president should be more strict so same mistake will be avoided in the future

  • Peter

    sayang naman ang mga husay ng ateltang pilipino kung maling tao ang humahawak sa poc.

    • Meilyn Mendoza

      we need someone who’s competent, trustworthy and who knows the “ins and outs” of sports. sige, kahit ‘di na sportsman. pero someone who’d really understand the system.

    • Reggie Rivera

      I agree. I don’t know, but has Cojuangco ever competed as an athlete in his entire life? I don’t think so. It’s better if he gives his position to someone who has competed or who has enough knowledge with regard to sports. Peping was first and foremost a politician, he was not, or never, an athlete.

    • d_cons_enrico

      Agree ako tol, si Idol “Big J” swak na swak sa POC. Bilang isang atleta, siguradong hindi nya pababayaan na malugmok ng tuluyan ang Pilipinas sa larangan ng sports. Madaming tao dyan na handang itaya ang ang kanilang pangalan para sa bayan, palitan na si Babalu, ay si Peping pala. Paumanhin po sa mga kaanak ni Babalu, hehehe.

  • Redjs

    I support Sen.Antonio Trillanes….for his plans to change the POC Chair…we dont know..someday…somehow…or in 2016 Olympics baka makasugnkit na tayo ng GOLD…sa ibat ibang events…papano nga tayo makakaginto kung magpapadala sa isang event ay isang tao lang din..pwede yun kung meron tayong isang katulad ni Phelps, isang event marame syang gold…

    • Gretel

      Pagpupugay kay Sen. Trillanes sa patuloy na pagsuporta sa mga atleta. Panahon na para mabigyang-pansin ang kakulangan ng sapat na pondo at suporta para sa tulad naming mga atleta. 

  • big_boy12

    Palitan na kasi yang mga yan. Matatanda na sila, we need fresh guys with fresh ideas to help spark the development of sports in the country. Down with Cojuangco, trapo, na I’m sure only wants to prolong his stint in the POC to have control of the sports program in the country. PEPING is the biggest reason why we can’t move forward in terms of sports development.

    • d_cons_enrico

      E hindi yata nakakahalata ang matandang ito e. dapat bumaba na sya, ibigay na nya sa iba ang POC. sa iba na gusto talagang manalo at hindi yung manatili lamang sa pwesto para masabing may halaga pa.

      • Gretel

        ganyan po talaga ang uhaw sa kapangyarihan. pakapalan ng mukha, makakapit lang.

  • d_cons_enrico

    Simula ng naupo si Cojuangco sa POC nalugmok na unti-unti ang Pilipinas sa Sports. Dapat ay mapalitan na sya at matigil na ang pag-monopolya nya sa sports sector dito sa Pilipinas. Kung may delicadeza sya, na mukha namang wala, umalis na sya sa pwesto nya dahil wala namang nangyayari simula ng umupo sya.

    • Maine Rosales

      tama! nagpapapogi lang yan sa puwesto niya. hindi naman uubra dahil wala pa siyang nagawang mabuti sa POC.

  • RyanE

    Absolutely! We need young, energetic and innovative people to lead POC.

    The creation of Department of Sports is a great idea. This will give our youth the right avenue to spend their spare time rather than on non-productive or even illegal activities.

  • jesreenmedrano

    hope this coming election of poc, someone will stand up against peping! hoping for a tuwid na daan for sports as well. katok katok pnoy- yung tito peping nyo po!

  • Maine Rosales

    Salamat naman at may nakaisip na tanggalin si Cojuangco sa POC. wala naman siyang nagawang mabuti jan eh. Mabuti pang palitan na yan nang mas nararapat. Para naman makasungkit na tayo ng ginto.

  • Charlie

    Tanging kapalit lamang……..
    I say i would be him.
    The PBA partylist, Senators and President Aquino should had him fired permanently, as a POC chief.
    Whatever the words of Senator Antonio Trillanes, is true.

  • Kevin Jimenez

    Overstaying na yan.

      At saka maidagdag lang, overstaying na nga, wala pang maipakitang nagawa.

    Sa tagal nya sa position nya, meron na ba syang naipakitang studies or research kung pano man lang natin maiimprove yung standing natin sa Olympics. Di naman tlga yan nakakatuwang resulta.
