Three Team reps skipping LA board meeting
Three representatives of the seven-team group wanting to oust Chito Narvasa as PBA commissioner did not board the Philippine Airlines flight bound for Los Angeles on Friday night.
Former chairs Pato Gregorio of TNT KaTropa, Mamerto Mondragon of Rain of Shine and Phoenix Petroleum’s Raymond Zorilla didn’t join the trip that is supposed to be the annual planning session of the board.
Meralco, NLEX, Blackwater and Alaska have also indicated loss of confidence on Narvasa.
Representatives of the five teams backing Narvasa—San Miguel Beer, Brgy. Ginebra, Star, Kia and GlobalPort—all boarded the flight with their families.
Incoming chair Ramoncito Fernandez of NLEX, who is supposed to arrive in LA on Nov. 13, is also reportedly not going to the planning sessions anymore, although he could join the rest of the current board members for a leisure trip to Las Vegas on Nov. 16.
