Areitio and others

We are seeing this week the last performances of the year at Miami.   Jai Alai is scheduled to return January 2018 without a lot of the current professional players.  Cutting costs, we will probably see in January a mixture of amateur and professional players in a non-Miami type roster......something jai alai fans aren't use to seeing at Miami.Can't believe Areitio is going to wait around another 6 months to continue his career.  Applause for him and his great career....and staying competitive…See More

Hi Dpoe. Just got home from after spending almost two weeks away working. I can confirm I have recieved a package from you. I'm gonna watch it now. Thanx a million :)

Hi DPOE, sorry I didn't get in touch with you before, but I would certainly be interested in watching that. I believe technological advances are what's needed to make this sport more exciting when not in attendance. Please do send me the video. Let me know the cost and I'll send it to you. I'll give you the address in a message

Wonderful ... many thanks for the help. We are tentatively targeting Nov 12 from 11:00 until 12:00. It would be really cool if the guys could wear their jerseys. Small things like that mean a lot for the youngsters.

I definitely was not trying to make a "collaborative wish" or any kind of hint when I made that statement. I merely was referencing Kosca's qualifications in his new position. With that being said, I also do not believe that Kosca is a savior, let alone becoming the Messiah that is going to save the sport. Since players managers at Ocala have been changed out every season since Dale Popp, I was only stating maybe an overall managing position might help solidify management operations on a total yearly basis.

I never stated that the person or people leading the operation were negligent or lacking in any way...only that a different approach might be positive. From what I know from a very good "behind the scenes source", current management does not care about jai-alai. They are strictly abiding by state rules and barely obligating their duties to hold a live season...but that is currently the outlook at most frontons. I think we all know and understand that. Do we like it? I doubt it.

I have attended the Citrus Tournament every year for the last 5 years and many before that when I was playing. I get where you are coming from and respect your opinion. Santi is a very good friend who I played with also at Miami Jai-Alai. Both of his sons and brother Luis are very close friends that I talk to on a regular basis...so nobody will get a harsh word out of me about the way he has handled Orlando's operation. These are just my opinions...didn't mean to solicit an uproar. I played for 25 years, lived the life and experienced it all...good and bad management...those were life teaching years and it helped me to have tough skin. No offense taken and when I have time, I will reply on Tiger's board.

Happy Holidays and be safe.

Randy

I might add that my response to you was my first item of business. Now I see that nobody else has responded yet on Tiger's board. Maybe you should also post something there to show your strong feelings instead of criticizing me on this site...back and forth responses might help your cause. I hope you can lighten up and if possible, maybe we can get together at this year's Citrus. Take care.
