Siasia Threatens To Quit Super Eagles

Super Eagles' chief coach, Samson Siasia, is ready to quit the national team, barely three weeks after landing the job due to what he calls officials' interference.
Siasia told a source in Holland that the issue of assistants' appointment remains a bone of contention between him and the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.
''All the pledge of a freehand for Siasia appears to be unrealistic. There are a number of ex-internationals the NFF expects to form the coaching crew of the Super Eagles but who are not in the plans of Siasia. On the other hand, there are some ex-internationals who Siasia wants but whom the NFF does not like due to their antecedents in the national team,'' he said - Tribune Newspaper

What should we do about comments on this blog?

Should I censor them more or...? I'm beginning to think it's kinda getting out of hand. The reason I upload most comments is because I understand the importance of giving everyone the opportunity to air their opinions. We obviously can't all agree on a matter and the diversity is what makes a blog like this more interesting. But I'm beginning to think maybe I'm allowing too much negativity on here.

Should I censor more or leave it just the way it is?

Quote of the day...

"I never really get to go to school because I am always on tour, or with my father. There is a tutor most of the time, but usually I am working so I never get to do the lessons.

Rapper Ikechukwu fights at Night Club

My goodness, I witnessed this with my own eyes...and what a sight it was. After the MAMAs last night, a few friends and I decided to end the night at Rehab Club on Ajose Adeogun and well, a few minutes after we got there...the fight with Ikechukwu and a bouncer ensued. They wouldn't let him through the gates and he flipped. (They let Naeto C and Sauce Kid in a few minutes before Ikechukwu arrived). It looked like it was deliberate...!

Ikechukwu's such a nice fellow but when he gets angry...wow! During the fight, he took his shirt off, his very expensive sun glasses fell (btw, I have the pic of the guy who took Ikechukwu's glasses incase anyone wants it back...:-)). The bouncer he fought with bled through the nose...I hear Killz has a black belt...or maybe the bouncer didn't really want to fight him back?

Anyway, the rapper has since apologized for his behaviour.
