Football finally outrates PBA

The ratings of the football match last Thursday were, according to Musngi, “amazing.”

Imagine. The RP-Indonesia match on Studio 23 outrated the PBA games the previous day.

The PBA first game rated 1.0 percent and Game 2, 1.7 percent in Mindanao while football rated 1.8 percent.

In the Visayas, the PBA rated 1.4 percent and 1.7 percent while the football match rated 4.4 percent.

In Mega Manila the PBA rated 1.4 percent and 2.6 percent while football rated 3.0 percent.

Finally, in the suburbs the PBA rated 1.6 percent and 3.5 percent in the triple-overtime game between Meralco and Rain or Shine while football basically on the main game timeslot rated 4.0 percent.

Figures tell the story.

It may not be the whole picture but it certainly indicates that football has an exciting future. And if PBA basketball is to revive the glory days, the board itself and the teams must imbibe the dynamism of league commissioner Chito Salud, whose grasp of the nuances and commitment to excellence will surely help pave the way for a turnaround.

Time is of the essence.
