The problem is... man ah man waaan duh dem owna ting.
I agree with you wholeheartedly, and I believe the vibes on here against doing anything is the reason. A definite undercurrent of inaction exists in this forum.
That is precisely why people act on their own!
Time and time again, you'll see someone come on here, make a suggestion about doing something or the other, and in a flash he or she is attacked from all angles...as if they were trying to steal the forum.
I think part of (if not the main) reason for this is because of the irrational hatred of the JFF and Horace Burrell by some people on here. They see any attempt by anyone to do anything, no matter how constructive, as being potentially beneficial to the JFF, so they rail against it. From my vantage point, all that does is puts us in a state of constant enmity with the JFF.
Contrary to what some might think, no one gains anything from that.
We rant against their leadership day in, day out and they ignore us, instead of partnering with us. Consequently, the support that we should be the catalyst of providing for the team, suffers.
This forum has been around long enough for us to be making a much larger impact than we are. And in spite of who might think otherwise, we are not!
When you go to a ReggaeBoyz game at a stadium in the Tri-State Area (NY, New Jersey, Connecticut) and don't see the ites, green and gold, you know it.
The Hondurans have better organizational acumen that we do? Please!
The amazing thing is that whatever we do, does not have to be monumental in scope, but its effect most certainly will be.
Each forumite can contribute a dollar (more if they can). Buy a huge flag or a banner. Buy blocks of tickets. Sit together and make lots of noise. In fact, even if we make no noise, our very presence there as a group will have an impact...
There's lots we can do, but the folks with the negative vibes rule the roost. They've sapped our will to do anything collectively...so we act individually.
The surest sign other intelligent life exists in the universe is that it hasn't tried to contact us.
