KEMAR MORRIS

I don't believe that the JFF has done much to improve local football. Definitely no. Look at where we are as a football nation since qualification for the 1998 FIFA World Cup Finals in France. I think it is time for Mr Burrell to step down as president.

ROHAN SUTHERLAND

No, because there is no development of local football as there are too many overseas players and the local players are not being given enough chance to develop. We need people with more heart representing Jamaica. The local players also need to be involved with international matches.

ANN-MARIE SPENCE

No. I don't like when players from local clubs are treated as if they are not good enough to represent Jamaica. I think they need to give more local-grown players chances.

PAUL CHRISTIE

It is a matter of a lack of proper marketing. We are not getting people out to watch local players. They don't invest in what they have locally. They are not given enough opportunities. We have lost our identity when it comes to football. We definitely need a change in the administration under Captain Burrell.
