ESPN May Feel Backlash

Francisco Bustamante will reportedly join Efren Reyes in boycotting Tour Stops

The decision of ESPN to choose Guinness over San Miguel after four years of partnership in the Asian 9-Ball Tour may result in a backlash against the sports network which has continued to lose out in the Philippines to the local Solar Sports channel.

The recognized godfather of Philippine pool Aristeo “Putch” Puyat has indicated that his prized players Efren “Bata” Reyes and Francisco “Django” Bustamante will boycott the ESPN Asian 9-Ball Tour over what Puyat considered ESPN's shabby treatment of the Philippine's flagship company.
