    JFF in guardianship

    It is just shy of a month since Michael Ricketts was re-elected to his second full, four-year term as president of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF).

    If he completes it, Mr Ricketts will have occupied the position for a decade. He completed the last two years of the term of the late Captain Horace Burrell, who died in 2017.

    Feeling himself “vindicated” by his re-election, the wise thing for Mr Ricketts to now do – which, unfortunately, he will not – is convince the members of the JFF to dissolve the body, paving the way for the creation of the new organisation to oversee football in Jamaica.

    He should also pledge not to offer himself for any leadership role in the new body, whose constitution should similarly preclude anyone who held office in the old JFF from serving in the new organisation for a decade and a half.

    As a gesture of appreciation for this action, Mr Ricketts would be named to some emeritus or honorary position in the new JFF (which would be called something else) and be afforded all courtesies at its functions, including at international football matches involving Jamaica’s national teams.
