Moore: Don’t blame me

Not my fault!
And there wasn’t any dereliction of duty that caused Barbados to miss the Caribbean Basketball Championships (CBC) for the first time in the tournament’s 30-year history.
Immediate past president of the Barbados Amateur Basketball Association (BABA), Carlos Moore, has denied that his administration failed to submit the necessary document to the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) requesting funding.
Required to raise $90 000, the BABA, under new president Derrick Garrett, took a decision not to send either the men’s or women’s team to the regional championships in the Bahamas.
“Essentially, I have executed all the duties that were expected of me during my time as president of the association,” Moore said in response to a story in the December 23 WEEKEND NATION which charged that the previous administration had failed to “seek the necessary funding from the BOA”.
“I submitted the information as expected by the deadline set by the BOA and I never received any indication that they never received it,” he pointed out.
Moore further said the information was forwarded to the BOA two and a half months before the BABA’s 2011 elections last January.
“I take issue with the insinuation that I was somehow neglectful in my duties which resulted in the country not being represented at the CBC Championships in June 2011.”
