SAY what you want to say but the La Salle women’s volleyball team will not be affected.
Arch rivals La Salle and Ateneo spiced up the opening weekend of the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament on Sunday at the MOA Arena.
To add color and fun, the Lady Spikers unleashed their signature swag that immediately trended online.
But as far as La Salle skipper Des Cheng is concerned the comments from bashers fall on deaf ears or on muted social media accounts.
“Wala na, deleted na Twitter namin before mag-start ng season,” she revealed.
“Sa amin lang [nag-start ang initiative]. Kahit sa mga rookies sinabihan namin kasi yung hype sa Twitter sobrang iba. Sobrang iba talaga. Ayun shutdown muna ang Twitter namin,” she added.
Cheng also shared that not all of them deleted their social media accounts, she pointed out that if others won’t delete, at least they shouldn’t pay too much attention to the comments.
“Sabi namin kahit hindi nyo i-delete ang Twitter basta wag na kayong magsi-search ng whatever na gusto nyong i-search,” she said.
“Pabayaan niyo na lang [ang bashers],” she added. “Kung gusto niyong mag-tweet ok lang pero yung magbabasa kayo na maapektuhan kayo, wag na kasi makakasira talaga ng laro yun. So um-ok naman sila.”
The graduating open spiker was pleased that the social media diet worked for the Lady Spikers.
While some fans are not too happy about the La Salle’s signature swag, Cheng bared that the players have the green light from coach Ramil de Jesus to celebrate each point to pump up the mood on the court.
“Kasi yung nga sabi ko sa inyo mahirap makakuha ng isang puntos sa laro so yun naghahabol kami nun. Second set yun naghahabol kami,” said Cheng.
“Feeling ko doon sa block na yun, doon nag-start yung spark na lumayo na ang team,” she added. “Siyempre kailangan nga may magsisimula ng spark para sumunod sila. Parang doon nga na lahat kami nabuhayan.”
