Is Fatigue a Valid Excuse?

I covered the 2nd game last night and one of the reasons that Alaska used was that they were tired which is why the energy was nonexistent. When I was part of the commissioner's office, teams complained all the time if they were scheduled consecutive playdates (ex: sunday then wednesday).

I'm not sure if the conditioning programs are not as comprehensive here but PBA players play maybe 50 games a year (18 elimnations plus playoffs in each conference). Those 50 games are spread out through 9 months which averages out to 5.5 games every month. It seems to me that playing less than two (2) games a week should be easy if you are in tip top shape and play basketball for a living.

The NBA players play back to backs all the time and play at least 2-3 games a week. I don't remeber players using fatigue as an excuse for not playing with energy. I realize PBA players get paid very little compared to the rest of the world but to play 4 to 5 games a month and get paid hundreds of thousands of pesos to do it aint so bad.

I don't think Alaska was overfatigued. The problem was that Ro Ellis showed his age. I felt Alaska should have gotten a younger and bigger import. Ellis was clearly outmuscled by Shawn Daniels in that game.

Another key reason why people try to make use of generic versions of Viagra
is the decreased cost involved. This makes people less likely to be concerned if the medication is not quite as effective as the Viagra UK
created by Pfizer. The manner in which many people purchase generic Cheap Cialis
can also decrease the ability to reclaim the cost if the product is found to be ineffective.
