You all as the future of Polo have to stand up and make a statement, We want to play the best Polo in America and should . There are no Americans in the finals of the US Open if they are not paying for it and the same could be said for those who played for it . Yes Politio was born in America but he is an exception do you think he is an American? Not really I am sure . There has not been a 10 goal US player since Adam Snow most of you were not born then, what does this tell us ? You are not polo players, Well that is the way it looks. WHY? you them never got a chance to try in the good polo about 5 yrs. ago we had a huge group of young potential people and they never seen the light of getting a chance to get there and you all are headed down the same path, nowhere to go.
This can be changed with a little English lesson, Make it happen give ///Americans a chance to do it or go home .
In 2018 all teams in US Polo have 2 Americans and no foreign player under 5 goals PERIOD. this WILL CHANGE polo EVERYWHERE AND IMPROVE POLO immediately. our YOUNG PLAYERS WHICH IS YOU,WILL GET TO PLAY AND EARN MONEY TO BUY COMPETITIVE HORSES AND GROW AND BE ON TEAMS TO IMPROVE YOUR POLO. SOME WILL MAKE IT AND SOME NOT BUT THEY WILL KNOW THEY GOT A SHOT A true statement they will know then they decide , now they do not even dream because the USPA has allowed it to not be a dream or a goal .
It is time to do as the Yaza Gabor line It is not true I never cleaned house everytime I got Rid of a husband I kept the house and that is what you all must do!
WE REALLY DO NEED NEW BLOOD IN THE USPA
THIS IS A EMAIL I SENT TO SOME OF THE GOV. @ CONTESTANTS AND I WILL SHARE IT WITH YOU.
I would like to ask all contestants as that is what you all are to answer some simple questions , The USPA probably will not print this but here they are .
# 1 What is the USPA doing for Americans ????????
a) they have a pretty good USPA program to start players ? do you agree ?
b) What do they have after they do program? Absolutely nothing !
c) Why they can not get job unless they pay own way and have no protection (((at all)))
1) they can not make enough money to compete with sons and cousins of already employed foreign players . That is so obvious but unseen by Officials.
SOLUTION ENGLAND ALREADY PROVED IT WORKS .
A) All teams have 3 American Players on it or better yet no foreign players under 4 goals
period at all levels .
B) Look into new ideas to cut huge cost of game at most levels . Javier Tanoria has some
1 – 6 chukkar Polo 6 horses for ea. player
2 – eliminate throw Inns u score hit it in goes out team hits out loses ball hit from spot
3 – these ideas make it a team game again everybody gets to play game as he has to
4 – these ideas could cut cost by 40 to 50 % as you need 8 good horses and no matter
how good they are you only get to play 6 it changes the game to way it once was you
play not just block and LEAVE IT.
Negatives of idea heard :
A) Will kill horses ! no you will pass not run and just maybe a Patron will really improve . As it
will become a TEAM Game again .
B) Remove 26 goal foreign Polo from our system if some want 26 goal make it a Pvt. League it is
anyway at today’s cost .
Just some simple ideas by a simple Person who loves US Polo and will support contestants who do . I like idea of going to Polo in Tulsa , Memphis , Louisville, Santa Barbara and being able to speak English and hit the ball.
IT IS SIMPLE WHY DOES ONE OF THE BIGGEST COUNTRIES PLAYING POLO HAVE 13 PLAYERS 6 GOALS OR MORE AND 1/2 OF THEM OVER 50 ??????? WHY? THE USPA!!
just my opinion
