Make no mistake, Noli Eala believes that live contracts should be respected.

With the times changing in the landscape, however, the former PBA commissioner said that the league should revise the rules that govern its Uniform Players Contract (UPC).

Eala took on Twitter to give his two cents regarding Kiefer Ravena’s controversial signing with Shiga Lakestars in Japan B.League.

“The decision by Kiefer to sign with a Japan B-League team is bold and ambitious,” Eala wrote. “Excited for him. I am all for athletes looking for opportunities abroad. Sports is global and universal.”

“Having said that, however, I still believe live contracts have to be respected.

As much as contracts should always be fulfilled, Eala said that the PBA still must adapt.

“The PBA is a pro league. Players with live contracts cannot simply enter into another agreement to play elsewhere arbitrarily. The UPC is a keystone of stability of the PBA. Must be respected,” Eala said.

“The middle ground is to revise the UPC to reflect the changing times. PBA must adapt,” he ended.


The PBA is currently reminding Ravena about his UPC that binds him not just with his mother team in NLEX Road Warriors but also with the league.
