    do you think Asi Taulava's legit Fil-am or a Fil-Sham?

    quoting a communiqué sent by the US Department of Homeland Security to the NBI, for an initial answer:

    "Official records indicate subjects (Taulava and his mother) are permanent US residents. Records from the US Department of Homeland Security showed Pauline Taulava was born Pauline Mateeaki Taulava on July 13, 1946, in Vaot'u, Taongatapu, Tonga. Her father, Semisi Mateeaki, and mother, Maveti Mateeaki, were also natives of Tonga. US Immigration and Naturalization Service records showed her alien registration number in the US as A35-046-350.

    "Asi's records in the US showed he was born March 2, 1973. His father, Pauliasi, was born in Pulupaki, Tonga."

    Fil-Sham indeed!
    Probably, Money Pangilinan is just protecting his number one player in Talk&Text team?

    I dont think he's Pinoy. But IMO, dapat paglaruin sa PBA. Masyado kasing stiff ang setup eh. Ayaw nilang gayahin ang Club Football where internationals are allowed to play as long as teams can afford them.

    Fil Sham si Asi for sure, naalala ko dati dinala pa niya dito yung nanay niya ni hindi ito marunong o maka intindi man lang ng ating native dialect tagalog man o bisaya so napaka imposibleng born filipina ito. Buti pa si Eric Menk yung nanay niya alam mo talagang filipina

    tingin ko fil-sham. yung nanay niya mukha talagang hindi pinay.

    ang asar lang, kasi if he's not legit then a true filipino is being deprived of the opportunity to play, who may be a breadwinner and loses the chance to maybe, uplift the life of his family. si asi , sa tonga ang padala ng pera.

    personal opinion lang po.

    but it doesn't necessarily mean that the same big bucks that asi is plowing now would go to a true blue pinoy if proven that asi is a fil-sham... kaya ganun din kalaki ang kita niya is because he can dominate the game... magiging ganun din ang kikitain ng isang true blue pinoy IF he can also dominate the game...

    hindi automatic na kesyo fil-sham si asi (kung talagang fil-sham nga) ay yung kinikita nya ay mapupunta sa ibang true blue pinoy.. depende pa rin sa talent ng papalit sa kanya...

    all in all sasakit lang lalo ang bulsa ng mga teams ng pba kung ganito lagi.. even with the salary cap which they go around din on some occasions... and guess what.. all these costs.. if they don't recover from the league itself??.. they pass on to the consumers in the products they carry...

    it's all business...

    another side effect is that effectively ang career ng mga pba players become shorter dahil sa mas marami na ang mas bata at "mas mahusay" ang sumusubok sa pba... kaya tuloy the San Miguel group can form it's own league of ex PBA players who tour around the countryside promoting SMB...

    the price that have to be paid for stiff competition...

    yeah i remember he brought her mom here in the Philippines. She was around 6'4 in height. La pa ata ako nakita pinay with that height ;) Dapat pa naturalize na lang si Asi since dito na naman wife and kid niya and very much at home na siya.

    fil-sham siya.

    and he has no reason to play in the PBA,

    why? because of the rules and by-laws of the pba.

    tama sila na hindi paglaruin si compton, yan ang rules eh, change the rules first if they want them to play, other than that, stick to the RULES!

    I think we should also consider the other teams with doubtful "fil-foreigners":

    1. Davonn Harp - Red Bull
    2. Mick Pennisi - Red Bull
    3. Rudy Hatfield - Coke
    4. Raffy Reavis - Coke
    5. Dorian Pena (?) - SMB
    6. Ali Peek - Alaska
    7. John Arigo - Alaska

    Do they really have Filipino blood? If not, they're not legit.
