Once again football dominates the headlines

The year 2015 was yet another interesting year for Botswana sport. As is always the case, there was the good, the bad, the outrageous, the unexpected and the downright ugly. That is the nature of Botswana sport; unpredictable, but exciting. Some of the so-called small codes came to the forth and started to raise their hands.

The worst of them being the ‘now boring’ spat between some parties at Township Rollers. I’m getting tired of all of them, and if I had the powers, I would rid the team of all of them. In all the sagas, it seems like everyone is looking at their own personal interests, forgetting that they don’t own these teams.
