I've always considered the Pacquiao fanatics like this. If America suddenly did real well in the World Cup and all of a sudden America just went insane for soccer. All the Americans take to soccer forums and spam for years to the rest of the world about how Landon Donovon is the greatest ever. That is the level of ignorance and stupidity the Pacquiao fans have been delivering on a daily basis for years now.
He's just hurting because it doesn't have the money to have Pacquiao's face removed from his back now that the hype had been exposed. So Panginoon is desperately trying to keep Manny "cool" and in style for that reason.
It would be like having Ricky Martin tattooed on your back in Puerto Rico years ago when broads loved him .. only to find out later he gay.
