Maddie Madayag defends side on controversial ‘Talunin niyo ang La Salle’ comment
Maddie Madayag thinks that “…everybody knows that ABS-CBN Sports is just trying to make an issue out of what I said.”
This is her defense to a controversial statement that did not sit well with most volleyball fans.
It all started when the Ateneo Lady Eagles team captain was caught on video saying “Please, talunin niyo ang La Salle” as she made her way to congratulate the Far Eastern University (FEU) Lady Tamaraws.
ABS-CBN Sports posted an article with the title: “Puwede talunin n’yo ang La Salle? – Ateneo captain Madayag”

Nowhere to go but up. 👆🏼 Thank you Lord for giving us this opportunity and for the new lessons we've learned this season. Thank you to the Ateneo community for the unwavering support. Win or lose it's the school we choose. We will definitely come back stronger next year! 🙏🏼💙

People are bound to take sides, especially when it comes to competitions. Remember the saying, The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Those who don't get it might as well reflect on it. Also, everybody knows that @abscbnsports' just trying to make an issue out of what I said. 🙂✌🏼
