I know several pleasant people from the islands, but I have slowly come to the conclusion that there is something really dark and terrible about that culture.  I mean, apparently a large majority really loved that monster Duterte.  There's something really sick going on.. I mean, besides the balut.

Cheating is absurdly rampant in boxing, to the point where it's not much better than WWE. Really a shame, because it's an amazing sport with amazing athletes.

Why are so many cheaters named Manny?

Still waiting for former NBA Commissioner Stern and two of the three refs to admit cheating in the 2002 WCF.

Speaking as someone who grew up in that culture....you're kinda right. There is a definite thread of Authoritarianism that wends its way through everything. Personally, I think it's the combo of the aftereffects of colonialism combined with the Church having way too much power over the average persons life.
I love my family, but sometimes my stepfather and I get rather heated over his "trains run on time" attitude about Duterte.

I'm thinking it tends to even out in the boxing grift. I've seen a couple times where Pacquiao unquestionably got cheated.

Boxing really isn't worth watching. Their crooked behavior shouldn't be rewarded

After watching the video he stinks at cheating. lol.  There was way more he could have done.

So, knowing how popular Manny Pacquiao is, did this guy just sign his own death warrant?

Very interesting insight.  I always hesitate to criticize a culture, because you know who else does that, constantly.  But some cultures could do with some changes.
