Pacquiao's Foundation Under Scrutiny

This is all so comical.

Let's discuss.

"My understanding is that some enterprising people used the name of the foundation and tried to bring in valuable 'used clothing' [without] the knowledge and consent of Pacquiao," Espejo wrote. "Time and again I have always said some people around the boxing champion will always find ways to earn fast money at the expense of Pacquiao.


This pretty much told the story. Then again...doesn't shit ALWAYS happen without Pacquiao's consent? This shouldn't come to anyone as a surprise...

I'm slipping, this didn't show up on my "Saintly Questionable Actions" RSS feed. Damn it! Thanks for the hookup Max.
I read it and yet again we see the age old excuse of this being the actions of others and Pacquaio had no clue. Why does he not have any responsibility, but someone like Mayweather is responsible for every single action of his entourage? If you're going to condemn one, you'd better condemn both.
I also loved the line "...his trusted advisor, Bob Arum." Priceless!

Yup. I just posted essentially the same thing.

Tell me about it! If anybody in Floyd's entourage as much as cuts a fart, then his ass is in court or on the front page of someone's website. I remember one article in particular, where they quoted Floyd saying something to the tune of, "My homies have guns. If you want me to call them, they'd come over here and take care of you.These are my f**king cars. Don't touch my f**king cars."

Dude doesn't even talk like that, but hey, that shit was published and people ran with it. Anytime Manny's quoted while saying anything, it's suddenly perfect English, and everything's cut and dry...sorry, but I dont buy it.

Sounds like more bullshit to me. The press is turning Manny into some kind of political prisoner or some shit.
Hotsauce
this isn't cray

"Political prisoner," ha!

It's crazy how much some people hate guys like FM and will go to lengths to just make up not so nice stuff. I don't hate the Saint, I just enjoy pointing out the ridiculous double standard that's in full effect when it comes to how he's portrayed.

Either Manny doesn't give a damn about what goes on around him, or he still doesn't know. My guess is that he doesn't give a damn...especially since most of this stuff has been published already...

There is also the possibility that he (Pacquiao) actually aids and abets those issues and wrongdoings. That's part of the reasons he's being challenged in/taken to court these days, BTW. Honestly, the more days that pass, the more I feel that Manny is just a smart crook that plays dumb, plays to [boxing and his native] commoners who therefore are more likely to identify with, and defend him.

He also appears to take advantage of his limited spoken English, which his audience in America - from where he generates the bulk of his "sales," keeps translating into this image of a "decent man." This perspective can be gleaned from the fact that whenever he speaks in his native tongue on pertinent issues, his statements are almost always much more direct and potent when translated into English.

Manny Pacquiao's persona to me is part that of the character played by Peter Sellers in "Being There." Luckily, it appears the totality to Manny's life/character is being gradually brought to the fore. It gets interesting.

Let's just say that I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him.
