    This is sooooo SAD 🙁 I’ve been an avid fan of purefoods eversince i got fond of basketball. I also am a fan of Ryan Gregorio and I really find him so perfectly fit for the team. I just feel sad about this issue since I’ve already been used to the purefoods’way, the Ryan’s way. It’s not easy for the fans to set aside our sentimental concerns on this especially because we’ve learned not only to admire the players but we’ve learned to love the team as well. And now here comes the news of Ryan’s transfer to another team. There are also rumors that the team is going to be disbanded and that james is now playing for san miguel next season. I really feel sad about this. Can anyone confirm how true is this??

    Life must go on. As long as intact or ma upgrade ng konti ang roster ng players, i don’t see any problem. Though it sad to say goodbye to coach Ryan, it’s a career move on his part. On the bright side, it will open an opportunity to other aspiring and competent coaches. Who knows, a new name for our team will bring a brighter, colorful, and super successful 2010-2011 season for us. Keep the spirit burning,think positive, that must be the mindset of a champion fans.

    Sayang that Coach has finally said goddbye to the team that gave him championships.Remember interim coach lang sya nun ng mag coach si Altamirano sa Phil team yata yun and then he take charge and effective sya.Bakit sinama mo pa si asst. caoach Ronnie Magsanoc.Truly I’ll miss. Sana si Coach Koy Banal na lang kasi magaling naman sya.
