All this brouhaha about the 2 year residency issue that the UAAP has implemented is just plain ridiculous.
Not only is it unjust, it may also be unconstitutional. Having a student sit out 2 years if he/she transfers from a UAAP high school team to another UAAP school for college is denying the constitutional right of a student to choose what school he/she wants to go to college to.
Where is the wisdom in this? The UAAP is not a sports league but a political arena. You scratch my back and I’ll scratch your back. They put out outrageous rules like this but up to today I still have to see a written UAAP rulebook on many other matters that need to be addressed.
I have it from a very reliable source that the implementing rules and guidelines of this residency fiasco, has not yet been finalized. Well, the UAAP Board better think this out well. I can already see legal battles from parents regarding this.
