I know I've been gone for a while, and I'm finding out just how much has changed in the interim. Therefore it's comforting in a weird way that some things haven't changed at all.
For example, you remember the dispute between thirteen of the 2006 Trinidadian World Cup players, Jack Warner, and the T&T Football Federation (but I repeat myself)? I've written about it several times. Well, that dispute is still unsettled, even after seven years of litigation!
Late last month, the legal advisors of the 13 players sent a long letter to the heads of the national federation, CONCACAF (Webb), and FIFA (Blatter), re-stating the facts of the case -- the motions, the judgments, the collections -- and asserting that the T&TFF will be liquidated by court order within six weeks if the debt is not resolved. Six weeks would be up the first full week of February, so we could be seeing another episode of the repo men arriving at the T&TFF headquarters or another false alarm in this neverending saga.
