  • Bell will play in Turkey(Galatasaray Yurtiçi Kargo) next season but won't be out of NT.. That is great news..Everybody knows the rules in Cuba but it seems it changed for Bell..I hope every Cuban players(men and women) will have that chance. Cuban star Calderon-Diaz also will play in Turkey(Galatasaray MP) next season but probably because of that stupid rule she won't be able to play in NT..Cuba have lost many stars because of that rule(Calderon,Carillo,Ramirez)..Why they don't let players play abroad? I hope the problem is solved as soon as possible :down:

  • I miss Leal the most in Cuban NT... Is there any chances to see him back soon? Does anybody know something about him and Simon?

    Bella the Leal History is old , in my opinion if anybody have low chances to returns is him , the problem is that he in february or March have a verbal and almost phsycal fight with Samuels so he was banished for Samuels from the NT . for other side Simon is good he are training at least beach and indoor but the problem is when the team returns to the island from the WL and also WC in 2010 they dont receive the money for the total campaign . the cuban federation dont paid them i dont know why pherphaps because they are thiefs or beacause in cuba all the money is for Castro anyways Simon stay angry whit this situation and months happens the problem whit Leal and that was the big problem for him because they love his partners and as a captain he have a responsabily besides he is one of the guys who speak that thay want play abroad but the stupid old man of the cuban federation dont listened and he decides go out of the national team . the history have more details but at least Hierrezuelo back and probably SImon is close to. :whistle:
