    Some of you journalists are not patriotic and part of of the down ward trend of the cedi.Why do you need to quote the amount in dollars?.This is Ghana and our players playing the league are Ghanaians,so why the dollars?.

    Ghana Premier League is not attractive at all. So the winner only get $16,000? What a shame! $16,000 is just someone's daily spending money in Barclays English Premier League or Seria 'A' in Italy or a weekly bonus for some players in PSL in South Africa. What kind of league is this?

    Yet Nyantakyi claims to be doing a good job just because the black star keep qualifying for the wc. The national league has gone from one of the best in Africa to shambles. $16000 for league winners is shameful
