Essex 13 for 2 trail Leicestershire 238 (Cosgrove 71, Robson 52, Porter 4-50) by 225 runs Scorecard These are puzzling days at Leicestershire. Patrick Corbin Jersey .On the face of things, this season has offered impressive improvement. After years among the also runs of the County Championship, here they are in late-August with a realistic chance of promotion. Going into this game, they were second in the table. If that sounds modest, it has to be remembered that they have not played in the top division since 2003 and did not win a single game in this division in 2013 and 2014. The improvement is welcome.The ground has improved, too. There are floodlights, new broadcasting facilities and improved stands. All of it is welcome.But scratch beneath the surface and you are left wondering how deep the roots of this recovery stretch. The only man in this side (Lewis Hill) who could indisputably claim to be home grown was making his first Championship appearance of the season and none of the top four were born in the UK.That is fine, up to a point. The addition of seasoned professionals may well have been required to alter the culture of a club that had become accustomed to losing. Their attitude and experience alongside some local talent could shape the future of the club.But theres the rub. Because the local talent isnt getting a game. Instead Atif Sheikh, a left-arm bowler of rare pace, has been released, Jigar Naik is seemingly sentenced to a future in the seconds, Aadil Ali, about whom there was such hope ahead of the season, hasnt played a first-class game since June and Zak Chappell, a promising fast bowler, here missed out to 27-year-old Dieter Klein, a journeyman South African making his first-class debut for the club who nabbed Alastair Cook as a notable maiden Championship wicket.Of course there is a balance to be struck. Of course young payers cannot be flung into the side without support. Of course in these mobile, multi-cultural times you would expect a team based in a city like Leicester to host players with wildly varied backgrounds. Of course the likes of Angus Robson, who here compiled a patient half-century, could go on to provide years of service for the club and be seen as Leicester through and through.But for five of this team to be born in Australia or South Africa and only one to have progressed through the clubs system suggests that balance has not been found. And for all the talk of embracing the local Asian community, there is no Asian face in the side here and very few in the stands. The two are probably connected.Leicestershire could claim, with some justification, that several players who developed through the club and might be playing for them even now (Stuart Broad, James Taylor, Greg Smith, Harry Gurney and Luke Wright, among others) had larger clubs not enticed them elsewhere. But Essex could say much the same. They have lost Adam Wheater, Reece Topley, Ben Foakes, Tymal Mills, Varun Chopra and Mark Pettini among many others. Yet they still fielded a side containing eight home grown players here.Most of all, Leicestershire could claim that it was always going to take time to turn things around here. So deep was the descent into mediocrity and irrelevance that it was always going to take years to produce a locally resourced, competitive side that reflected its local community. They are not so far into the rebuilding process that a judgement can yet be made as to its effectiveness.It would have been nice to put these points to the clubs head coach, but Andrew McDonald declined the interview request until the end of the match. Perhaps Leicestershire are happy with an attendance of 800 (their highest Championship gate of the season) and the absence of independent coverage? Or perhaps the club are reluctant to put McDonald into a tricky position while his future remains uncertain. Despite having a contract with the club until the end of 2018, rumours linking him with a full-time return to Australia continue. He has already taken the Melbourne Renegades position; the Victoria role remains open. Some well-placed sources expect an announcement within days.And it needs to be asked how much have Leicestershire really improved under him? Or have they just plugged the holes with imports? Are they really any different now to the side that was ridiculed for filling itself with Kolpak registrations? If they are going to fulfil a role for English cricket - and they have a fine history of doing just that - they have to grow their own or improve those who were unloved elsewhere. In two or three of this side - Ned Eckersley, Robson and Ben Raine - they have such players. But there is a huge amount of room for improvement.They didnt have a bad day here. Put in on a green track that had been used for a previous Championship match, they found themselves on a hat-trick in the first over from Jamie Porter. Paul Horton played around one that may have nipped in and Neil Dexter was caught on the crease by an inswinger.But Mark Cosgrove and Robson added 129, with Robson showing admirable patience - he scored three from his first 38 deliveries - and Cosgrove feasting on anything on his legs to provide the foundations of a decent score on what Leicestershire say they hope is a result wicket.Both were troubled by the pace of Graham Napier. Still able to coax life out of a slow pitch even a few weeks from retirement, Napier produced a bouncer that took Cosgroves glove and ballooned just over Cooks head in the slips - Cook appeared to get a hand to the chance but could not cling on - and eventually defeated Robson with a fuller ball that seemed to surprise him with pace. It was the eighth time this season Robson had made a half-century but he has been unable to convert any of them into a century.Pettini was bowled leaving one that nipped back before Eckersley saw the ball dribbled off his bat and onto his stumps as he dropped his hand on an off-break from Tom Westley. By the time Cosgrove was bowled by a lovely, swinging yorker - his attempt to whip it through midwicket resulted in a lost middle stump - he was only four short of 1,000 Championship runs for the season.Leicestershire also enjoyed a couple of early wickets in reply. Cook, playing his sixth Championship match of the season with a view to helping top-of-the-table Essex secure promotion, was bowled by a full, swinging ball that clipped his off stump, before the nightwatchman, Porter, was adjudged - somewhat unfortunately, it appeared - to have been given out caught behind off the glove.So their promotion hopes remain alive. But, long term, you wonder what progress has really been made with this team. Cheap Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys .In my heart and mind Im competing for India, luge competitor Shiva Keshavan told The Associated Press in an email interview.

Canterbury coach Des Hasler bit back at his sides critics, brushing off claims theyre shaping as NRL also-rans. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 .The Bulldogs are right in the mix, placed fourth with four regular rounds to play but have copped criticism after unconvincing wins over strugglers St George Illawarra and Newcastle in the last fortnight.While Hasler attributed those performances to the opposition and also difficult conditions on Saturday in Newcastle, legends Darren Lockyer and Brad Fittler cast doubt over their title credentials.Lockyer said he believed they were out of the running and too inconsistent while Fittler said they were winning ugly and getting home on the back of some individual brilliance.However Hasler, whose side has won six of their last seven matches, pointed to their position on the ladder as proof of their credentials.Winning ugly, what does that mean? Were winning games when we need to, Hasler said.Obviously at the same time its a pretty tight comp.Theres three sides fighting for third and fourth and how many sides are fighting it out for sixth, seventh and eighth spot?I think thats a good thing.The Bulldogs have lost just three games since round 10 in May with all of those defeats coming against sides in top four contention - North Queensland (fifth), Cronulla (second) and Canberra (third).They are also third in the league for completions and fourth for metres made, illustrating theyre capable of executing and dominating their opposition.Asked about suggestions they werent in the hunt, Hasler was blunt: Well were in fourth place. Cheap Air Max Authentic .

Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. At first glance, Saqlain Mushtaq seems an unlikely cheerleader. At second glance too.Certainly in the modern sense. Hes never been seen with a pair of pom-poms and his dancing days are probably behind him.But that was the description of his role on Englands tour of India offered by Zafar Ansari. It was not meant as faint praise, either. It was meant to underline the unstinting support he has given to Englands spinners in his role as coaching consultant and, in a subtle way, it recognises the sensibly soft touch he has taken.These brief coaching stints are tricky. On one hand, the coach is keen to make as much of an impact as possible in the short period they are with the team. In the case of Saqlain, that was originally only going to be for two weeks on this tour, though it has now been extended to something approaching a month.On the other hand, such short-term coaches can be reluctant to force themselves on players. One highly respected batting coach who was invited to spend a session or two with the team during the summer departed having hardly spoken to the players for fear of tinkering without sufficient time to make substantial progress.Saqlain understands this. He understands that, as a consultant, his role is not to completely overhaul anyones technique and that, going into a game, the worst thing he could do is inject any negativity or doubt into a players mind.He has made it explicit that he didnt want to come in and change anything, Ansari said after Englands training session at the not especially catchily named Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam. He hasnt had time to change our actions and, in the lead-up to Test, the last thing you want to be doing is changing what youre doing.He acts as our cheerleader to some extent. He boosts us and makes us feel good about ourselves. And as someone who has been so successful to come in and say I think youre a good bowler and I think you can take wickets at this level, that gives you a lot of confidence and that is important for Test cricket.Saqlain may have learned a thing or two in this regard. During his first stint with the England team, just ahead of the Manchester Test against Pakistan, he mentioned to Moeen Ali that he may like to alter his grip a little in a bid to gain more bounce. But when the result was a couple of head-high full tosses, they both concluded that the time for technical changes is not a couple of days before a Test.His input is not limited to bowling, either. Moeen credits his improvement against spin bowling in part to Saqlains comments. So when Saqlain mentioned that Javed Miandad had recently told him how much he admired Moeens batting, Moeen was thrilled and more receptive to the advice - advice offered many times previously by Mark Ramprakash - that he might like to come down the pitch more often against spin bowlers. Sometimes the source of the advice is just as important as the subject.Thats not to say that Saqlain is nothing but a cheerleader. He also has the experience to offer practical advice. So, while Adil Rashids Test career has previously been characterised by coaches suggesting that he would need to bowl quicker to succeed in international cricket, Saqlain has recognised that Rashid has several gifts but that speed will never be one of them.Instead, he has encouraged him to embrace his natural strengths: to give the ball some air, to give the ball a rip and to back his own skills to defeat the batsmen. On the evidence of thee Rajkot Test, where Rashid produced probably the best bowling performance of his Test career, it seems to be working well. Discount Nike Air Force 1 Shoes. .Its more about your approach to bowling and bowling in Test cricket, Ansari said. How you can maintain your composure when batsmen are coming at you, when the crowd is loud and when youre playing on TV.

Were winning games when we need to, Hasler said.Obviously at the same time its a pretty tight comp.Theres three sides fighting for third and fourth and how many sides are fighting it out for sixth, seventh and eighth spot?I think thats a good thing.The Bulldogs have lost just three games since round 10 in May with all of those defeats coming against sides in top four contention - North Queensland (fifth), Cronulla (second) and Canberra (third).They are also third in the league for completions and fourth for metres made, illustrating theyre capable of executing and dominating their opposition.Asked about suggestions they werent in the hunt, Hasler was blunt: Well were in fourth place. Cheap Air Max Authentic .

Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. At first glance, Saqlain Mushtaq seems an unlikely cheerleader. At second glance too.Certainly in the modern sense. Hes never been seen with a pair of pom-poms and his dancing days are probably behind him.But that was the description of his role on Englands tour of India offered by Zafar Ansari. It was not meant as faint praise, either. It was meant to underline the unstinting support he has given to Englands spinners in his role as coaching consultant and, in a subtle way, it recognises the sensibly soft touch he has taken.These brief coaching stints are tricky. On one hand, the coach is keen to make as much of an impact as possible in the short period they are with the team. In the case of Saqlain, that was originally only going to be for two weeks on this tour, though it has now been extended to something approaching a month.On the other hand, such short-term coaches can be reluctant to force themselves on players. One highly respected batting coach who was invited to spend a session or two with the team during the summer departed having hardly spoken to the players for fear of tinkering without sufficient time to make substantial progress.Saqlain understands this. He understands that, as a consultant, his role is not to completely overhaul anyones technique and that, going into a game, the worst thing he could do is inject any negativity or doubt into a players mind.He has made it explicit that he didnt want to come in and change anything, Ansari said after Englands training session at the not especially catchily named Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam. He hasnt had time to change our actions and, in the lead-up to Test, the last thing you want to be doing is changing what youre doing.He acts as our cheerleader to some extent. He boosts us and makes us feel good about ourselves. And as someone who has been so successful to come in and say I think youre a good bowler and I think you can take wickets at this level, that gives you a lot of confidence and that is important for Test cricket.Saqlain may have learned a thing or two in this regard. During his first stint with the England team, just ahead of the Manchester Test against Pakistan, he mentioned to Moeen Ali that he may like to alter his grip a little in a bid to gain more bounce. But when the result was a couple of head-high full tosses, they both concluded that the time for technical changes is not a couple of days before a Test.His input is not limited to bowling, either. Moeen credits his improvement against spin bowling in part to Saqlains comments. So when Saqlain mentioned that Javed Miandad had recently told him how much he admired Moeens batting, Moeen was thrilled and more receptive to the advice - advice offered many times previously by Mark Ramprakash - that he might like to come down the pitch more often against spin bowlers. Sometimes the source of the advice is just as important as the subject.Thats not to say that Saqlain is nothing but a cheerleader. He also has the experience to offer practical advice. So, while Adil Rashids Test career has previously been characterised by coaches suggesting that he would need to bowl quicker to succeed in international cricket, Saqlain has recognised that Rashid has several gifts but that speed will never be one of them.Instead, he has encouraged him to embrace his natural strengths: to give the ball some air, to give the ball a rip and to back his own skills to defeat the batsmen. On the evidence of thee Rajkot Test, where Rashid produced probably the best bowling performance of his Test career, it seems to be working well. Discount Nike Air Force 1 Shoes. .Its more about your approach to bowling and bowling in Test cricket, Ansari said. How you can maintain your composure when batsmen are coming at you, when the crowd is loud and when youre playing on TV. All these external factors, he brings a certain perspective to that.Saqlains background may be relevant, too.

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Cheap NCAA Jerseys From China .ca! Hey Kerry, I have a question on a video I watched not too long ago and thought maybe you can give some clarification and or give us some stories like always. So the video I saw was NYR vs BOS, during a timeout CNBC had a mic near NYR bench. Obviously Torts was unhappy (as always) and you can see him yelling at an official. However during the video you can clearly hear the official tell Torts "thats enough" then proceeded to swear at the coach. My question is, are the officials allowed to swear at the coaches? I was always under the impression that referees were supposed to be held at a higher standard than every other person on the ice. Seems odd that a ref would go as far as swearing at a coach who is already clearly heated in that type of situation. I understand the fact that everyone has their boiling points, and this official was getting tired of hearing Torts yelling at him. However isnt is the refs job to try and defuse situations rather than add fuel to the fire? Thanks again, love the articles Kory C ------ Kerry, There is a video circulating of a linesman yelling "Eff you" at John Tortorella. Judging by public image of the Rangers coach, he probably deserved it. On several occasions, you can read lips of the officials and phrases like "shut the eff up" seem to be pretty common. Im sure some guys do it more than others but Im wondering how common and accepted it really is for officials to swear at players and coaches? Thank you, Eugene Kory and Eugene, It is inappropriate for a referee or linesman to curse at a coach or player at any time! In the heat of the battle (and as emotions escalate), it is imperative that officials fight the human instinct to engage their perceived adversary. Instead, their objective should always be to defuse the situation by becoming part of the solution instead of part of the problem! The best way to do that is for the official to remain in control of his own emotions. That being said, have I ever slipped up and cursed at a player or coach? Absolutely! After all, there are times when we just cant fight off our human instincts. I must say, I learned very early in my career that to defuse hostile situations, I needed to remain as emotionally neutral as humanly possible. I also recognized that to be successful, I needed to develop positive relationships with players and coaches through appropriate forms of communication. From a state of calm, I attempted to exert control by creating a "win-win" situation wherever possible. I recognized that every player and coach had distinct and unique personalities and it was my job to figure out what worked best in dealing with them. Body language and tone of voice are two elements that need to be kept in check as an official enters a debate/confrontation. The first time I came to understand there was a better way in dealing with an out-of-control coach was when Bryan Murray was behind the Washington Capitals bench in the early 1980s. Bryan is an emotional guy and, at the time, led the league in bench penalties for his theatrics in protest of the officials decisions. During one game in the Cap Center, the coach was standing up on the dasher boards screaming wildly and waving his arms at me. I decided to try a different approach, since bench penalties didnt seem to be altering Bryans unacceptable behavior pattern. I approached Murray with both of my hands up in front of me with palms open (a sign of peace as opposed to a finger point) and my monotone voice only loud enough so that I could be heard as opposed to screaming back at the out-of-control coach. I took control of the situation by stating to the coach that I would like to talk with him but in order for me to do so, he must calm down and to please get off the dasher boards. Bryan immediately complied to my polite request as his emotional pitch conformed more toward the one that I had presented to him. At this point, I started the conversation by saying, "You might not agree with what I have to tell you but let me explain the reason for my decision on the play." I quickly and calmly communicated with the coach what I saw on the play. Murray listened intently and then paused for a brief moment as he chose his words to respond. Bryan said, "Well youre right about one thing, Kerry, I dont agree with what you just said but thanks for coming over and explaining it to me!" In Bryans post-game interviews, he said the dialogue that he and I had was the first time that a referee ever approached him at the bench to provide an explanation and he really appreciated it. That incident taught me a huge lesson in relationship building. I also found that it was important for me to think of what I was going to say and actually hear myself before opening my mouth. When my emotions would start to rise and my voice got louder, I would take a breath in an attempt to return to centre or neutral. I can recall stopping in mid-sentence during a heated debate with a player and saying, "Im sorry I just said that; let me rephrase, what I meant to say was..." I learned the hard way it was much better to adopt the philosophy as a referee to "treat disrespect with respect" than to engage in or attempt to win an "Eff you" contest. I attempted to set acceptable and achievable limits for game participants similar to those I set for myself. Lastly, I tried not to take myself too seriously and to find humor in situations wherever possible. I learned that valuable quality early in my career as well when a team was getting their butts kicked at home and became extremely frustrated; especially with me. My response at the time, to their disrespect, was to assess misconduct penalties and as the score mounted near the end of the game, I had four players from the home team in the penalty box with 10s! The coach had enough of me as well and wanted to get thrown out of the game. He sent his captain over to me at the stoppage who very politely relayed a message for me. The captain said, "My coach wants to know if he can get a penalty for thinking?" Somewhat confused by the question, I responded by saying, "I guess not as long as he doesnt think out loud!" The captain then said, "In that case, he wanted me to tell you he thinks youre an Effing A#$%^&*!" I started to laugh, finding the humor in the statement. The coach, who was waiting for a battle response from me that never came, started to grin and then laugh as well. The game ended without further incident and a positive relationship blossomed with the coach. Sometimes you just have to find the humor in the situation, Torts! Cheap Basketball NCAA Jerseys .

From a state of calm, I attempted to exert control by creating a "win-win" situation wherever possible. I recognized that every player and coach had distinct and unique personalities and it was my job to figure out what worked best in dealing with them. Body language and tone of voice are two elements that need to be kept in check as an official enters a debate/confrontation. The first time I came to understand there was a better way in dealing with an out-of-control coach was when Bryan Murray was behind the Washington Capitals bench in the early 1980s. Bryan is an emotional guy and, at the time, led the league in bench penalties for his theatrics in protest of the officials decisions. During one game in the Cap Center, the coach was standing up on the dasher boards screaming wildly and waving his arms at me. I decided to try a different approach, since bench penalties didnt seem to be altering Bryans unacceptable behavior pattern. I approached Murray with both of my hands up in front of me with palms open (a sign of peace as opposed to a finger point) and my monotone voice only loud enough so that I could be heard as opposed to screaming back at the out-of-control coach. I took control of the situation by stating to the coach that I would like to talk with him but in order for me to do so, he must calm down and to please get off the dasher boards. Bryan immediately complied to my polite request as his emotional pitch conformed more toward the one that I had presented to him. At this point, I started the conversation by saying, "You might not agree with what I have to tell you but let me explain the reason for my decision on the play." I quickly and calmly communicated with the coach what I saw on the play. Murray listened intently and then paused for a brief moment as he chose his words to respond. Bryan said, "Well youre right about one thing, Kerry, I dont agree with what you just said but thanks for coming over and explaining it to me!" In Bryans post-game interviews, he said the dialogue that he and I had was the first time that a referee ever approached him at the bench to provide an explanation and he really appreciated it. That incident taught me a huge lesson in relationship building. I also found that it was important for me to think of what I was going to say and actually hear myself before opening my mouth. When my emotions would start to rise and my voice got louder, I would take a breath in an attempt to return to centre or neutral. I can recall stopping in mid-sentence during a heated debate with a player and saying, "Im sorry I just said that; let me rephrase, what I meant to say was..." I learned the hard way it was much better to adopt the philosophy as a referee to "treat disrespect with respect" than to engage in or attempt to win an "Eff you" contest. I attempted to set acceptable and achievable limits for game participants similar to those I set for myself. Lastly, I tried not to take myself too seriously and to find humor in situations wherever possible. I learned that valuable quality early in my career as well when a team was getting their butts kicked at home and became extremely frustrated; especially with me. My response at the time, to their disrespect, was to assess misconduct penalties and as the score mounted near the end of the game, I had four players from the home team in the penalty box with 10s! The coach had enough of me as well and wanted to get thrown out of the game. He sent his captain over to me at the stoppage who very politely relayed a message for me. The captain said, "My coach wants to know if he can get a penalty for thinking?" Somewhat confused by the question, I responded by saying, "I guess not as long as he doesnt think out loud!" The captain then said, "In that case, he wanted me to tell you he thinks youre an Effing A#$%^&*!" I started to laugh, finding the humor in the statement. The coach, who was waiting for a battle response from me that never came, started to grin and then laugh as well. The game ended without further incident and a positive relationship blossomed with the coach. Sometimes you just have to find the humor in the situation, Torts! Cheap Basketball NCAA Jerseys .

FORT WORTH, Texas -- IndyCar drivers will have Back The Blue decals on their cars and wear caps representing local police and national law enforcement agencies when they resume the rain-interrupted race at Texas Motor Speedway on Aug. Discount Air Jordan 1 . 27.Just weeks after the June 12 postponement, five law enforcement officers were shot and killed July 7 in downtown Dallas at the end of a protest over police-involved shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota in the days before that.There have been protests this week in Milwaukee after an officer-involved shooting there.Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi joined Texas Motor Speedway officials Wednesday on visits to the headquarters of the Fort Worth Police Department and the Dallas Police Department.It means a lot. We had an opportunity with the race being rescheduled to do something to show our appreciation and our respect and gratitude, Rossi said. Im just honored to be a part of it.Rossi and Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage addressed officers at each department and presented 200 tickets for the race at each stop. Police personnel will be admitted to the race free, along with a companion, by showing their badge.Gossage said all that is being done is a way to show respect to police and all first responders.Our fans blood runs red, white and blue, probably more than any other sport going, so it just made obvious sense, Gossage said. To put the Back The Blue decals on the car and for each of the drivers to wear a hat from a various police department, as opposed to their sponsor hats, thats a big deal.The Texas race in June was first pushed back a day because of rain. Only 71 of the scheduled 248 laps were completed the following day, before more rain led to an unprecedented 2?-month delay.Fort Worth police officer Matt Pearce, who survived being shot multiple times by a fugitive during a manhunt in March, will return as grand marshal and give the drivers the command to start their engines -- the same as he did in June.He appreciates what the Texas Motor Speedway?and IndyCar Series are doing for officers when the race resumes.It means a lot to every officer, anybody that wears a badge, Pearce said. I know that for me, it was a big morale booster knowing that I had support, not only from my guys, but pretty much every agency throughout the Metroplex. I dont think theres an agency in Tarrant County that didnt chip in to support me when I needed their help, and thats huge. ... I really think that has a lot to do with how fast I have recovered. Cheap Air Jordan 1 Sale . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records. Cheap Air Jordan 1 China .

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons defense has made plenty of rookie mistakes. No surprise there, given all the first-year players theyve put on the field.The Falcons have started as many as four rookies at times this season, and the youth movement doesnt end there. Four other regulars have been playing in the NFL only two seasons, signaling an entirely new direction for the often-maligned unit.Coach Dan Quinn wasnt at all hesitant about sending out so many young players.We knew there would be some growing pains with certain techniques and certain things that you have to go through, Quinn said Thursday. But I didnt have concerns with it. Otherwise, I wouldnt have put them in. I felt like they had earned it and were ready to go.Atlanta ranks 28th in both points (26.5 per game) and yards (376.3) allowed, but thats nothing new. The Falcons have traditionally struggled on defense, rarely placing among the NFLs elite units.Now, at least, there are plenty of reasons to be hopeful.Quinn said the improvement has been evident in recent weeks as the Falcons (8-5) make a push for their first playoff berth since 2012. They host the woeful San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, coming off perhaps their best defensive performance of the season.In a 42-14 rout of the Los Angeles Rams, the Falcons defense chalked up a pair of touchdowns -- one off an interception, another off a fumble recovery -- and came up with another big interception to halt a drive deep in Atlanta territory.It really starts with communication -- how good can you get at that? Quinn said. Not only do you know your own assignments, but youre able to share some of the information pre-snap. Over the last two weeks, Ive really seen them ramp up that communication, where the information is getting back and forth.Up front, Vic Beasley -- a first-round pick in 2015 -- has emerged as a dominant pass rusher with 13.5 sacks, tied for the league lead with Denvers Von Miller. Another second-year player, Grady Jarrett, is a key contributor on the interior line.The linebacking corps includes a pair of rookie starters, second-round pick Deion Jones and fourth-rounder DeVondre Campbell. They have drastically improved the speed and athleticism of that group, which was especially evident when Jones returned aan interception for a 33-yard touchdown against the Rams. Air Jordan 1 Retro Cheap. .Four youngsters are playing key roles in the secondary, including rookie strong safety Keanu Neal and free safety Ricardo Allen, whos in his second season on the 53-man roster after spending a year on the practice squad. Jalen Collins, another second-year player, moved into a starting role at cornerback after a season-ending injury to Desmond Trufant. Undrafted rookie Brian Poole has made six starts as the nickel back.We have a really significant role on this team, Neal said. But I feel like weve handled it well.When Quinn arrived, it was clear the Falcons needed a major upgrade after ranking last in yards allowed in 2014. Theyve addressed that glaring weakness mainly through the draft, devoting six of nine picks in the first five rounds to defensive players.All of them are either full-time starters or a big part of the playing rotation. Their impact is evident in the statistics, where they account for 56 percent of the tackles, 59 percent of the sacks, 67 percent of the interceptions and 73 percent of the forced fumbles.Jones said he feels like a completely different player than the guy who started in Week 1.Ive still got room to grow, he said. But I can say Im starting to know the game more and more. Its been a fun experience to see myself grow as a player.That certainly bodes well for the future.The present doesnt look so bad, either.We dont look at them as young guys anymore, Quinn said. We just look at them as ballplayers who are ready to play.Game notes WR Julio Jones (sprained toe) missed another practice and its still not known if hell be able to play Sunday after sitting out last weeks game. ... WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) was listed as limited for the second day in a row. ...

Pakistans inconsistency in selection has seen them run through many players in the last few years, and openers have been a particular problem. Comprar Zapatillas Online Baratas .All the more reason to sit up and take notice, then, when 20-year-old Sami Aslam made a impactful debut, replacing Shan Masood in the opening slot at Edgbaston, scoring 82 and 70. It was possibly the only positive from the match for Pakistan, who lost by 141 runs.Sami came up in cricket in the years when the international game had departed the country. He did not watch any of his cricket heroes live, nor did he see any major international side visit Pakistan. Still, cricket was a vital part of his life. He was one of the finds of the PCBs Hunt for Heroes tournament in 2009, where he was the fourth leading run getter, with 333 runs at 66.60. Since then he has made sure to remain in contention as he progressed up the levels. You can follow my career from Under-16, my performances have been extraordinary, he says.He was prolific at the U-19 level and is currently the second highest run scorer in U-19 ODI history with 1695 runs (and the most hundreds, six). He is also the third fastest in the world to get to 2000 List A runs. He was captain of the Pakistan U-19 side when they toured England in 2013, and made two centuries in the tri-series then, including 110 in the final against England, before catching the eye with another hundred in a victory over India in the 2013-14 U-19 Asia Cup.Sami studied at one of the best schools in Lahore, Crescent Model School in Shadman, and then at the prestigious 152-year-old Government College University in downtown Lahore, where he studied general science, maths, statistics and economics. During his time at college, he made steps towards taking up cricket full time. I didnt go beyond my intermediate degree because of cricket, he says, but I have all the basic education, which makes me a better and confident person.He started playing serious cricket at Punjab Cricket Club near Mozang, and spent four years there before moving to Ali Gharh Cricket Club in Model Town after his father had differences with the organisers at PCC.Aslam Sr, who works for State Bank, has been a major driving force in Samis cricket career, escorting him to grounds and generally being his biggest supporter. Samis standout characteristics have been his solid temperament, a calmness remarkable in one so young, and the value he places on his wicket. He attributes them to his education, and the influence of his father as he grew up.His ability to leave the ball caught attention at Edgbaston, and his judgement in picking the right ball to hit has been astute. Add focus and temperament to that and you have the makings of a fine opener.I am by nature very polite, and this calmness came from my education, Sami says. My father has kept me protected. He ensured that I am not distracted, and he made sure I remained within the right company and with good friends around. He always kept an eye on my social circle, and probably that might have been annoying at some stage, but this eventually helped me.His international debut wasnt quite in keeping with his feats at U-19 level. In his first two Tests, against Bangladesh last year, Sami made just 47 runs in three innings, though in his 31 first-class matches he has scored as many hundreds (six) as he has fifties, which indicates a hunger to convert starts.My debut last year in Bangladesh wasnt really a reflection of what I am as a player, he says. I was unlucky in Khulna and later my morale was crushed badly when I was dropped. I was dropped without a sufficient opportunity and it really hurt. As a player, when you come up to the top level after years of hard work, you shouldnt be judged merely on the basis of one or two innings.I then returned to domestic cricket and scored ample runs, including a double-hundred in Lahore, to be in contention. So things have always been improving and this process never stopped. Opportunity eventually came back to me again, and we both knew why you are interviewing me - its because I have done something big, which now everyone is acknowledging.For this England tour, Sami was picked as a back-up opener. I wasnt really sure if I would get a game, he says. But I was mentally ready and kept my work ethics as if I was playing in the game, because I didnt want to be complacent.I remember we landed here in Hampshire on June 18 and since than I dont think I have missed any training. It was always important for me to be ready all the time, and I kept myself backing throughout. I was working with Grant Flower in the nets, knocking the ball, absorbing the conditions and understanding everything within the dressing room and how things work around at this level.Pakistan have struggled to find an assured opener since Saeed Anwar - Mohammad Hafeezs 50 Test matches notwithstanding. The selectors have never quite managed to gather enough patience to allow any young batsman to settle into the role, but Sami believes he is here to stay, and thinks this tour is his breakthrough. I feel I have a chance to chip in, he says.His credentials for the position are strong. He notably has not had issues with discipline at the domestic level, and his progress from club cricket to date has been down to performance.I am not thinking very far from here and I dont think that I have proved anything yet, he says. No, its a long way to go but one thing what I have proved so far is that I have the skills to sustain at this level of cricket, regardless of the conditions. I have played a lot of cricket before making my way to Test cricket, and this England tour has actually helped me a lot to convince the selectors and fans in Pakistan - otherwise everyone is cynical about everything here. You really have got to give your heart, as there is no room for failure, because you never know if you will ever get a chance again.We grew up with a perception that if a player can score away from home, especially in England, Australia and South Africa, then he is recognised as an accomplished player. I wont say that I have achieved everything, because its just one match. But one thing I feel proud about is that my base has been set. I will be a talking point as the guy who scored runs in England in his very first match, and this is what keeps you motivated. I have showcased my talent and everyone saw me batting. Probably I am the answer for every unanswered question for Pakistans opening slot. I know after this everyone will start expecting a lot from me, and that will be another challenge because one failure and you are gone. People talk about inconsistency and we do have a culture of being inconsistent. This is only because there is always a fear of failure. Young players are not given ample opportunities to prove themselves. If you see [James] Vince as an example, he might have failed in the last 12, 13 innings, but still England are backing him and giving him a chance to get confidence. So this is the kind of support a young player needs and this will also allow us to play with freedom. So these innings I played were very important for my career to go ahead, and it was a perfect start.Sami is the youngest in this Pakistan dressing room. He was shy about talking to anyone until Sarfraz Ahmed and later Asad Shafiq struck up a rapport with him. Safi has been very supportive, he says. Otherwise I had hardly anyone to talk to. I was nervous with Misbah and Younis Khan around - they are very senior players and I dont know how and what to talk with them. I found a really good friend in Asad Shafiq as well.He says he has not had a cricket hero. I actually never gave a thought about it - who to follow or take inspiration from. But there are few I want to follow their characteristics, like [Virat] Kohlis consistency. Consistency is a missing factor in the top order and I want to make sure that I will be consistent, he says.I enjoy watching Suresh Raina, but the players I want to follow are Virat Kohli and [Joe] Root. Why? Because they are consistent, they score in eight innings out of ten. That is the part missing from the Pakistan team. I want to be more consistent, and that is the main thing I feel I should be working on. Zapatillas Baratas España .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. Zapatillas Baratas Outlet España .

A sell-out crowd, clear sunshine, a belting pitch, a record run-fest for Indias maiden T20 international on US soil. Everything seemed to come off as it should on Saturday at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, in particular for the fans.The visit was an opportunity for Indias players to thank their fans among the Indian diaspora in the USA, in person, for their dedication over the years. Stories of Indians studying at universities around the USA seeking permission to set up viewing parties in empty lecture halls at 3 am to watch the World Cup in 2011 are the continuation of a tradition stretching back decades. Part of the origin story of Cricinfo was feeding those same students with text commentary over internet relay chat in the 1990s at all hours of the day.The wealthier members of the Indian diaspora dont have to deal with such trifles. At the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, fans in the USA were some of the biggest ticket buyers traveling to the event, with expats flying from New York, Chicago, San Francisco and elsewhere to make it down to Adelaide for the showdown against Pakistan. Others shelled out USD 100 to watch the tournament pay-per-view package offered by the then-rights holder ESPN. Instead of going to such great lengths to go find the cricket, the cricket had now finally come to them.Im paying not only for Kohli and Dhoni, but a good competitive game of cricket, said Agam Shah, 33, a day before the series began. Originally from Ahmedabad, Shah has lived in Fort Lauderdale for more than 10 years. I would much rather it be a close game rather than India winning by 200 runs. Im paying for a good competitive series. I wouldnt pay this much to see India v Sri Lanka. West Indies is the World Cup winner.Shahs words wound up being almost prophetic with the one-run margin on Saturday. But more than the final ball, the fan atmosphere was the defining feature of the day. The DJ sparked numerous bhangra dance-offs when Saddi Gali and Chak De India were blasted to the satisfaction of the Indian contingent while the West Indian fans grooved to Dwayne Bravos Champion. One couldnt help but smile at the bonhomie, a far cry from the combativeness that can be witnessed between fans at any NFL game.The Indians there were just unbelievable, cheering on, just watching them along, the excitement from them actually made the game more tense, said Lisa Ramsanahi, 27, a Guyanese-American born and raised in Queens, New York, who flew down with her husband and watched from the bleachers on the north stand - the only two West Indian fans in our section. The pair also came down for the CPL games in Lauderhill in July, but Saturdays game was at a different level. It was great, best game, best T20 I ever witnessed, said Ranveer Ramnauth, Lisas husband.As if fate was smiling on the BCCI, Saturdays game went on uninterrupted but mere moments after the teams shook hands and walked off the field, a heavy shower came down, hurrying fans toward the exits. It was one more indication that everything that could go right did go right.To have a nail-biting finish on the last ball, God has been kind, BCCI president Anurag Thakur told ESPNcricinfo after the game. A thunderstorm was expected, nothing happened, we survived. I think that luck is on our side. When you put your 100%, the god also favors you.That luck vanished on Sunday, mainly because officials decided to tempt fate by delaying the start under bright sunshine even though thunderstorms were forecast for the early afternoon. Initially fans remained patient when a 10.30 start was communicated, but when another 10 minutes were added on to the delay, boos rang out around the ground.It was especially frustrating because of the reason for the holdup - a breakdown in satellite transmission with the host broadcaster in India - as there is a precedent for proceeding with play regardless of TV coverage available, both in cricket and baseball. A 2012 tri-series ODI in Hobart between India and Sri Lanka moved forward after power went out at the ground. It resulted in TV viewers missing the first 3.4 overs of Indias chase.More recently, Game 1 of the 2015 World Series between the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals experienced a TV broadcast failure with the host feed controlled by Fox going down in the bottom of the fourth inning. According to Richard Sandomirs chronicle of events in The New York Times, the game was briefly delayed only because Foxs feed was being used for baseballs replay challenge system. After a short discussion with umpires, both managers agreed to play on without the replay system available. TV coverage of the game continued outside the USA on an international TV feed while radio coverage went on uninterrupted. It was 38 minutes before the Fox feed was restored.The US market seeemed the least of Indias concerns on the day, though. Zapatillas España Baratas. The matches were not shown on any TV channel in the USA, with the rights sold and packaged as an online pay-per-view option via YuppTV, a cord-cutter internet portal similar to Roku or Google Chromecast. Saturdays final-ball drama was missed by the mainstream American sports fan while Sundays technical delays beaming the match back to India had no ripple effect on disrupting any USA cable or network TV channels programming line-up since it wasnt being offered.The decision to delay the start brought fans back to reality, that this series wasnt about the BCCI saying thank you by playing in front of them. Instead, they were an ancillary consideration to the primary vehicle of the TV audience back in India. Other issues that maybe could be forgiven now boiled to the surface.Concession sales were cash-only, but if one was only carrying credit cards, there were no ATMs on site to take out money, leaving the earliest-arriving fans from the gate-opening time of 8 am hot and thirsty for up to six hours in 90-degree Farenheit (32 degrees Celsius) Florida heat. Ticket values - starting at USD 75 for standing room only and USD 100 for uncovered bleachers going up to USD 250 for VIP - also priced out many casual fans from being able to attend.Ever since Ive been here, Im a Red Sox fan and I go to as many Red Sox games as I can, said Anish deSouza, a 27-year-old from Mumbai now living in Massachusetts, who flew in for the series. In similar seats, I sit in the bleachers there as well, you can get bleacher seats for USD 18. If theyre playing the Yankees, you might pay USD 50 for bleacher seats. If the aim is trying to promote cricket in the USA, you need to think about the other sports youre competing with.Fans who entered the north side of the stadium were given a color-coded stamp on the hand to signify each portion of the bleachers while another color stamp signified the standing-room-only area in front of the bleachers against the boundary fence. When the thunderstorm arrived, fans hurried for cover in a picnic area hut behind the bleachers that is used as a storm shelter in the event of lightning. However, most fans got soaked and the stamps were washed off. When fans then tried to return to the bleachers after the rain stopped, deSouza claims the security personnel initially refused to let people back in, on account of being unable to identify any stamps on their hands.Most fans who had VIP tickets actually stood outside to watch the games rather than sit indoors because the view was obstructed, but when the rains arrived, everyone returned indoors. At about 1.15, with the sun shining again and a full 45 minutes before play was officially called off, the bar inside was already shut with fans denied any service, including simple requests for water, at a time when food and drink hospitality - included for free in the price of a VIP ticket - should have been at its busiest. According to Sam Desai, a hotel owner from Lake Charles, Louisiana, staff then turned hostile toward one spectator.He said, Hey, but the game is still on. Why wont you guys give me water? I dont want beer or food. Then they called security and chucked him, around 10 or 15 cops, said Desai, whose version of events was backed up by at least a dozen other witnesses who had tickets in the VIP tent. He just argued that, Hey I paid for VIP. The game is still on. I just want water.The crowd waited for more than an hour with no communication from officials about what was going on. When MS Dhoni and Carlos Brathwaite shook hands at about 2 pm, fans slowly started to trudge off but minutes later another rain storm began. Many in the covered grandstand attempted to remain in their seats to wait out the passing storm rather than walk to the parking lot in the rain. However, security officials yelled at fans to leave immediately, once again showing no common-sense regard for their welfare. It brought back memories of the overly officious attitude from officials during the 2010 series between New Zealand and Sri Lanka.As special as the fan experience was on Saturday, Sundays events left a sour taste in the mouth. The primary motivation for coming to Florida for so many was to be a part of history and witness Indias first official bilateral T20I series on USA soil, but without that carrot dangling in front of them, things must improve significantly from an operational standpoint to encourage return customers.As long as the service is good and everything is organized, we are happy, Desai said. Asked if hed pay the same price for tickets to come back next year, Desai made his feelings perfectly clear. Hell no! ' ' '
Stuart Pearce has been drafted in to help Simon Amors Olympics Sevens squad unite under the Team GB banner in Rio this summer. Cheap Nike Shoes .Former England football full-back Pearce has addressed Team GBs wider Olympics training squad as head coach Amor races against time to draw the best sevens stars together from England, Scotland and Wales. Pearce talked of common passion, but has also advised Sevens boss Amor on selection dilemmas, given his own stewardship of Team GBs 2012 football side.Ive had a lot of conversations with Stuart Pearce about how he managed to bring that GB team together for London 2012, the challenges he faced in a short space of time, to bring the home nations together, said Amor. Stuart told me to smash the Team GB message with the players.He obviously had the difficult choice of not picking David Beckham, he chose Ryan Giggs instead. The biggest thing he said was hammer home that Team GB message, how big it is.Everyone you speak to says it doesnt matter what youve done in the past, theres nothing that compares to this, the Olympics, the size, the scale, the feeling. And the other thing he said was to try to enjoy the journey, because he said it goes by just like that, in a second.Weve tried to enforce that with the guys and theyve worked so hard so far.Amor is just as busy weighing final Rio selection as building excitement and ambition among his squad. The former England Sevens star will not though be filling any quotas when that final squad selection comes around. Amor has insisted the top-performing players will be selected to travel to Brazil, irrespective of their nationality.Every British & Irish Lions tour squad selection is picked apart for the numbers representing each nation, but Amor claims there will be no need for any similar process for the eventual Team GB line-up.Amor will finalise his 12-strong squad selection on July 19, before the GB mens outfit face New Zealand, Kenya and Japan in group-stage action, starting on August 9.There has been no quota set, said Amor of the impending Team GB selection. As soon as I got the job I committed 100 per cent to sending the very best team we could possibly to the Olympics. That meant making some tough calls for resting and recovering the England guys, knowing we needed a squad of at least 24 going in.But now its about that blend and that balance, and thats what were trying to do in training, seeing who works well together. So it may not be the best individual players, it may be who works best with that particular player.So nothing to do with quotas, well send what we think is the best squad. Wholesale Nike Shoes .

CLEVELAND -- Paul Molitor has learned a major league manager can never relax. Discount Vans Shoes .Molitor watched his Minnesota team nearly blow an eight-run lead before the Twins hung on to beat the Cleveland Indians 10-6 Tuesday night.Im not sure exactly how to verbalize what transpired there, he said. It was a good tester for our guys and we found a way to win.Minnesota rookie Max Kepler homered for the fourth time in two games. He hit his fourth two-run drive of the series in the third inning, two batters after Brian Doziers two-run shot.The Twins also scored four times in the fourth against Carlos Carrasco (7-5).Any notion the Twins would cruise to a win ended when the Indians scored six times in the fifth and chased starter Kyle Gibson, who took an 8-0 lead into the inning.Carlos Santana and Mike Napoli each hit a two-run homer. Francisco Lindor had an RBI single before Lonnie Chisenhalls RBI double finished Gibson.I dont know if I ever saw it quite this way, Molitor said. You always imagine worst-case scenarios and how to be prepared. When the Indians get things going they can score in a hurry just like a lot of teams, so youre always guarded.Ryan Pressly (6-5), who retired Napoli with two on to end the sixth, pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings.Gibson was three outs from qualifying for what appeared to be an easy win, but Cleveland sent 11 batters to the plate in the fifth. Gibson allowed six runs in 4 2/3 innings.Im not really sure what happened, honestly, he said.Minnesota, in last place in the AL Central, is 7-4 against first-place Cleveland this season. The loss narrowed Clevelands lead over Detroit to three games.I dont know what they do against everyone else, but theyve played us pretty darn well, Indians manager Terry Francona said.Kepler, born in Germany, hit a trio of two-run homers with six RBI in Mondays 12-5 win. He walked three times Tuesday and leads AL rookies in homers (15) and RBI (46).Another good night, Molitor said. His swings locked in. Its fun to watch a young kid figure things out.Eduardo Escobar hit a two-run homer for Minnesota in the ninth. Dozier had three RBI and Miguel Sano added a two-run double.Joe Mauer, who had four hits Monday, doubled twice and drove in a run.Carrasco allowed a career-high eight runs in 3 2/3 innings on a tough day for Clevelands rotation.

The NHL may be getting closer to a new transfer agreement for players International leagues. Adidas Superstar Baratas Rebajas . "Weve reached a framework for a new transfer agreement," Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told TSN during Canadas 3-0 win over Sweden at the World Championship. "We actually negotiated the terms with the Swedish federation. We presented that proposal today to the other IIHF federations and I think it was warmly received." Daly hopes the proposal will move to the agreement stage - which he would have to take to the Board of Governors - by next week. The only potential snag could be with the Russian Federation. "We had separate meetings with Russia," Daly continued. "They are going to go back, hopefully theyll consider it favourably. Were not necessarily counting on it because obviously the KHL issues are somewhat different but certainly the olive branch has been extended." The agreement, should it be reached, would be separate from any concerning the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Daly said there was a brief meeting about participation in the Olympics and that the process is still ongoing. Adidas Superstar Baratas . JOHNS, N. Adidas Superstar Baratas España .

Five minutes before the break Delany had the chance to extend the Falcons lead but hit the post with the penalty and Leicester were able to clear.Leicester took the lead for the first time in the 50th minute with a penalty from Burns after Newcastle had been adjudged to have gone off their feet.JP Pietersens break-out looked to have given Leicester the opening they wanted but, once again, Newcastles defence was exemplary and Rob Vickers stole a loose ball and the Falcons cleared.Newcastle then conceded a penalty for collapsing a maul and although Burns missed the kick at goal from 45 metres, he landed one two minutes later to make it 14-10.There was a close call for Leicester when Vereniki Goneva burst through and was stopped on the line before Sinoti sent lock Dan Temm over in the corner.Referee Doyle chalked off the try after watching the replay but gave Newcastle a penalty and sin-binned centre Peter Betham for preventing release, with Hodgson making it 14-13 with the penalty 10 minutes from time.Newcastle mounted one last charge with a minute left on the clock but Will Witty could not hang on to Mark Wilsons desperate overhead pass inside the Tigers 22.The Falcons had a scrum close to the Leicester line with time up and worked into a position for Hodgson to have a drop-goal attempt from right in front, only for the fly-half to send his effort wide.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. Buy Air Jordan 11 Cheap . -- If Toronto Marlies coach Dallas Eakins could take anything away from Wednesday nights loss to Grand Rapids, it was that his team showed perseverance. The Marlies battled back from a two-goal deficit before finally succumbing to the Griffins 5-4 in Game 3 of the American Hockey League Western Conference semifinals. The Griffins now own a 2-1 series lead entering Game 4 Friday night in Grand Rapids. "That was huge, and thats maybe one of the positives we take," Eakins said. "Our guys are resilient, and weve been through this playoff run before. They fully understand that you are never out of a game. I liked our push back, and I liked that we were able to come back, but we needed to play better defensively." The Marlies found themselves in a two-goal hole early, as Grand Rapids notched a pair of goals in the first six minutes of the game. It wasnt the start Toronto was hoping for after a Game 2 home win to even the series. "We got down two goals, and you dont want to do that to start off the game, but we regrouped and there was no panic on the bench," said Marlies right winger Carter Ashton, who had a goal and an assist. "It was a matter of believing in our system and executing." The Marlies got one back near the end of the first period when Ryan Hamilton scored in his first game since rejoining the team from the Maple Leafs. Grand Rapids took a 3-1 lead less than three minutes into the second on a goal by Tomas Tatar, but the Marlies answered with a pair of timely goals. Toronto made it 3-2 on an unassisted goal from Spencer Abbott, and tied it five minutes later on a power goal by Greg McKegg, who trickled in a shot past Grand Rapids goalie Petr Mrazek. The Griffins regained the lead with nearly three minutes remaining in the second as Francis Pare pushed a shot over MacIntyres shoulder to put Grand Rapids ahead 4-3. The Marlies gave up a goal 46 seconds in to fall behind again by two goals, but Ashton cut the gap to 5-4 with 15 minutes left in regulation. Toronto nearly tied it in the last three minutes but a short-handed shot by Mike Zigomanis deflected off the post. The play was reviewed, but it didnt turn out in Torontos favor. "We wouldve liked a little better luck on that," Eakins said. "Off the post, wide open net, and I know Ziggy wont sleep much tonight thinking about that." Grand Rapids outshot the Marlies 32-20, while MacIntyre finished with 27 stops. "We need more attempts at the net, and thats not even shot selection," Eakins said. "Thats getting the puck into the zone and getting it deep. We had certain individuals who wanted to do things on their own, and we were turning pucks over early and that denies you shots at their net." The Marlies and Griffins were both 1 for 4 on the power play. Mrazek had 16 saves. Air Jordan 11 Wholesale .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. Air Jordan Retro 11 Wholesale . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. http://www.cheapairjordan11china.com/ . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. Baylor acting head coach Jim Grobe has disputed the universitys account of how Jeremy Faulk was kicked off the football team in June, saying the defensive lineman had been suspended by the team but not dismissed?after he was accused of sexual assault.Faulk, a junior college transfer who reportedly has won an appeal to be reinstated, has said he was ousted after he was questioned about a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on campus in April and about an incident that occurred when he was enrolled at Florida Atlantic.The circumstances of Faulks departure remained unclear Monday night, illustrating a level of dysfunction that continues to ruffle the Baylor football program and keep the school under the cloud of a sexual assault scandal that has dragged on for more than a year.Last week, KWTX-TV in Waco, Texas, reported that Faulk won an appeal to have his scholarship reinstated in July. But because a Title IX investigation has remained open for four months, Faulk hasnt been allowed to re-enroll at Baylor and rejoin the football team.Grobes comments were met with widespread support from eight of the Bears current assistant coaches, as well as several staff members and a handful of former players, who nearly simultaneously tweeted a link to the story containing his comments on Monday night, along with the hashtag #TRUTHDONTLIE.Baylor executive associate athletics director Nick Joos told ESPN on Monday night that the university addressed the issue of the Baylor coaches tweeting about the case.Weve handled that internally and were not going to comment any further on it, Joos said. Weve handled that here tonight.On Tuesday, Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades appeared on ESPN Central Texas AM 1660 and confirmed the situation is being handled internally and no Baylor coaches will be suspended.During his weekly news conference with reporters on Monday, Grobe said he made the decision to suspend Faulk after he was accused of sexual assault. According to KWTX, he later called the station to clarify his remarks and said he didnt make the decision to dismiss Faulk from the university and strip him of his scholarship.I think thats the way most coaches deal with problems if youve got kids that have issues. They may come back to the football team, but they may not temporarily be able to represent the football team, and thats not just Jeremy -- its any kid on our football team, Grobe told reporters on Monday.Faulk, who transferred to Baylor after playing at Garden City (Kansas) Community College, told ESPN on June 10 that he was dismissed from the Baylor team after he was questioned about a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on campus in April, and also about an incident that occurred when he was enrolled at Florida Atlantic.Faulk, from Palatka, Florida, told Outside the Lines that police never questioned him about the April 21 incident and he wasnt arrested. Baylor police provided ESPN with a heavily redacted incident report.On Friday, Baylors Joos said in a statement that Faulk was dismissed from the school on June 3 based upon violations of the university and athletic department Code of Conduct. Joos also said in the statement that Grobe and the interim athletics director made the decision to dismiss Faulk and did not require other Executive Council members nor Title IX staff involvement.Grrobe, who has guided the No. Discount Air Jordan 11. 11 Bears to a 5-0 record going into Saturdays home game against Kansas, didnt respond to phone calls from ESPN.com.Grobe, a former Wake Forest coach, was hired on May 30 to replace former Baylor coach Art Briles, who was fired three days earlier in the wake of the universitys sexual assault scandal.For the past several months, Baylor has been at the center of nationwide attention over its handling of sexual assault allegations and investigations, including several that involved athletes. After the Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton issued a scathing summary of its findings from a monthslong investigation, Briles was fired, former university president and chancellor Kenneth Starr was demoted and later resigned, and athletics director Ian McCaw resigned.Last week, Baylor Title IX coordinator Patty Crawford resigned and alleged that the universitys leadership wouldnt allow her to fulfill her responsibilities and that the school continues to violate Title IX. Crawford, who was hired as Baylors first full-time Title IX coordinator in 2014, also filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Educations Office for Civil Rights about the way Baylor is handling Title IX complaints.Faulks dismissal from Baylor angered Jeff Sims, a former Florida Atlantic assistant and head coach at Garden City. He said Baylor officials wanted to rid themselves of Faulk even before it was proved if he committed sexual assault.

PAUL, Minn. SAN FRANCISCO -- Unable to produce a clutch hit, the San Francisco Giants still found a way to win. Brayan Villarreal walked Marco Scutaro with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, handing the Giants a 3-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night. The Giants squandered numerous opportunities early in the game, going 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position, but they tied it in the eighth inning on a sacrifice fly in foul territory and used two walks and a hit batsman to win it. "We have been on the other end of these games," manager Bruce Bochy said. "You take it any way you can get it. This was a good one." Roger Kieschnick started the winning rally with a one-out single against Franklin Morales (2-1) for his third hit of the game. The Giants loaded the bases with two outs when Morales walked Andres Torres and hit pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez on the left wrist. "We started out the inning in pretty good shape and then seemingly in a matter of about seven or eight pitches it looked like Franklin lost the strike zone a little bit and leaves us in a tough spot with two outs," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. With Brandon Workman having pitched the past two days, Farrell gave Villarreal his first appearance with the Red Sox. Villarreal was acquired in a deal last month from Detroit and called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday. He made a poor first impression, throwing four straight balls to Scutaro. Giants hitting coach Hensley Meulens told Scutaro that Villarreal had control problems before the at-bat and that proved true. Villarreal has walked nine of 29 batters he has faced this season, including two with the bases loaded. "When he told me that, I wanted to make sure I looked for my pitch and not be too aggressive," Scutaro said. He did just that, giving the defending World Series champion Giants a rare reason to celebrate. "Its nice to win one like this because we have been on the other side of them," said starter Ryan Vogelsong, who allowed two runs in seven innings. "When you play a tough game like that and things arent going your way ... its good to come out on the winning end of it." The Red Sox couldnt hold a 2-0 lead and lost for the fifth time in seven games to fall percentage points behind Tampa Bay for the lead in the AL East. Sergio Romo (4-6) pitched a perfect ninth for the win. After twice faailing to get a runner in from third with no outs, the Giants finally delivered in the eighth inning to tie the game. Air Jordan 1 Retro Cheap. Scutaro reached on a one-out single and went to third on Brandon Belts single against Junichi Tazawa. Buster Posey then hit a high fly down the right-field line that Shane Victorino caught in foul territory. Scutaro scored easily on the sacrifice fly but Tazawa escaped without any further damage to keep the score tied at 2. "No second-guessing guys. I let that ball fall and he hits a three-run homer then what are you guys going to say?" Victorino said. "When I was on the move over there I told myself catch the ball and try and get in the best position I could to make the throw." Victorino helped give Boston the lead when he hit a rare right-handed homer off a righty pitcher. The switch-hitting Victorino is unable to bat left-handed because of an injured left leg. But that did not bother him when he led off the third inning with a drive to left that made it 2-0. It was just the second time Victorino had hit a right-handed homer against a righty in his career, also doing it against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey on Sept. 24, 2010, according to STATS LLC. It looked as if that 2-0 lead would stand up when Jake Peavy escaped jams in the fourth and fifth innings. Belt, who had three hits, was stranded after a leadoff triple in the fourth when Posey grounded out and Peavy struck out Hunter Pence and Brandon Crawford. The Giants scored their first run of the series when Kieschnick led off the fifth with a single and scored on Joaquin Arias triple. But San Francisco couldnt get the equalizer when Vogelsong, Gregor Blanco and Scutaro followed with groundouts.

The Marlies battled back from a two-goal deficit before finally succumbing to the Griffins 5-4 in Game 3 of the American Hockey League Western Conference semifinals. The Griffins now own a 2-1 series lead entering Game 4 Friday night in Grand Rapids. "That was huge, and thats maybe one of the positives we take," Eakins said. "Our guys are resilient, and weve been through this playoff run before. They fully understand that you are never out of a game. I liked our push back, and I liked that we were able to come back, but we needed to play better defensively." The Marlies found themselves in a two-goal hole early, as Grand Rapids notched a pair of goals in the first six minutes of the game. It wasnt the start Toronto was hoping for after a Game 2 home win to even the series. "We got down two goals, and you dont want to do that to start off the game, but we regrouped and there was no panic on the bench," said Marlies right winger Carter Ashton, who had a goal and an assist. "It was a matter of believing in our system and executing." The Marlies got one back near the end of the first period when Ryan Hamilton scored in his first game since rejoining the team from the Maple Leafs. Grand Rapids took a 3-1 lead less than three minutes into the second on a goal by Tomas Tatar, but the Marlies answered with a pair of timely goals. Toronto made it 3-2 on an unassisted goal from Spencer Abbott, and tied it five minutes later on a power goal by Greg McKegg, who trickled in a shot past Grand Rapids goalie Petr Mrazek. The Griffins regained the lead with nearly three minutes remaining in the second as Francis Pare pushed a shot over MacIntyres shoulder to put Grand Rapids ahead 4-3. The Marlies gave up a goal 46 seconds in to fall behind again by two goals, but Ashton cut the gap to 5-4 with 15 minutes left in regulation. Toronto nearly tied it in the last three minutes but a short-handed shot by Mike Zigomanis deflected off the post. The play was reviewed, but it didnt turn out in Torontos favor. "We wouldve liked a little better luck on that," Eakins said. "Off the post, wide open net, and I know Ziggy wont sleep much tonight thinking about that." Grand Rapids outshot the Marlies 32-20, while MacIntyre finished with 27 stops. "We need more attempts at the net, and thats not even shot selection," Eakins said. "Thats getting the puck into the zone and getting it deep. We had certain individuals who wanted to do things on their own, and we were turning pucks over early and that denies you shots at their net." The Marlies and Griffins were both 1 for 4 on the power play. Mrazek had 16 saves. Air Jordan 11 Wholesale .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. Air Jordan Retro 11 Wholesale . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. http://www.cheapairjordan11china.com/ .

But because a Title IX investigation has remained open for four months, Faulk hasnt been allowed to re-enroll at Baylor and rejoin the football team.Grobes comments were met with widespread support from eight of the Bears current assistant coaches, as well as several staff members and a handful of former players, who nearly simultaneously tweeted a link to the story containing his comments on Monday night, along with the hashtag #TRUTHDONTLIE.Baylor executive associate athletics director Nick Joos told ESPN on Monday night that the university addressed the issue of the Baylor coaches tweeting about the case.Weve handled that internally and were not going to comment any further on it, Joos said.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. Buy Air Jordan 11 Cheap . -- If Toronto Marlies coach Dallas Eakins could take anything away from Wednesday nights loss to Grand Rapids, it was that his team showed perseverance. The Marlies battled back from a two-goal deficit before finally succumbing to the Griffins 5-4 in Game 3 of the American Hockey League Western Conference semifinals. The Griffins now own a 2-1 series lead entering Game 4 Friday night in Grand Rapids. "That was huge, and thats maybe one of the positives we take," Eakins said. "Our guys are resilient, and weve been through this playoff run before. They fully understand that you are never out of a game. I liked our push back, and I liked that we were able to come back, but we needed to play better defensively." The Marlies found themselves in a two-goal hole early, as Grand Rapids notched a pair of goals in the first six minutes of the game. It wasnt the start Toronto was hoping for after a Game 2 home win to even the series. "We got down two goals, and you dont want to do that to start off the game, but we regrouped and there was no panic on the bench," said Marlies right winger Carter Ashton, who had a goal and an assist. "It was a matter of believing in our system and executing." The Marlies got one back near the end of the first period when Ryan Hamilton scored in his first game since rejoining the team from the Maple Leafs. Grand Rapids took a 3-1 lead less than three minutes into the second on a goal by Tomas Tatar, but the Marlies answered with a pair of timely goals. Toronto made it 3-2 on an unassisted goal from Spencer Abbott, and tied it five minutes later on a power goal by Greg McKegg, who trickled in a shot past Grand Rapids goalie Petr Mrazek. The Griffins regained the lead with nearly three minutes remaining in the second as Francis Pare pushed a shot over MacIntyres shoulder to put Grand Rapids ahead 4-3. The Marlies gave up a goal 46 seconds in to fall behind again by two goals, but Ashton cut the gap to 5-4 with 15 minutes left in regulation. Toronto nearly tied it in the last three minutes but a short-handed shot by Mike Zigomanis deflected off the post. The play was reviewed, but it didnt turn out in Torontos favor. "We wouldve liked a little better luck on that," Eakins said. "Off the post, wide open net, and I know Ziggy wont sleep much tonight thinking about that." Grand Rapids outshot the Marlies 32-20, while MacIntyre finished with 27 stops. "We need more attempts at the net, and thats not even shot selection," Eakins said. "Thats getting the puck into the zone and getting it deep. We had certain individuals who wanted to do things on their own, and we were turning pucks over early and that denies you shots at their net." The Marlies and Griffins were both 1 for 4 on the power play. Mrazek had 16 saves. Air Jordan 11 Wholesale .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. Air Jordan Retro 11 Wholesale . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. http://www.cheapairjordan11china.com/ . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. Baylor acting head coach Jim Grobe has disputed the universitys account of how Jeremy Faulk was kicked off the football team in June, saying the defensive lineman had been suspended by the team but not dismissed?after he was accused of sexual assault.Faulk, a junior college transfer who reportedly has won an appeal to be reinstated, has said he was ousted after he was questioned about a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on campus in April and about an incident that occurred when he was enrolled at Florida Atlantic.The circumstances of Faulks departure remained unclear Monday night, illustrating a level of dysfunction that continues to ruffle the Baylor football program and keep the school under the cloud of a sexual assault scandal that has dragged on for more than a year.Last week, KWTX-TV in Waco, Texas, reported that Faulk won an appeal to have his scholarship reinstated in July. But because a Title IX investigation has remained open for four months, Faulk hasnt been allowed to re-enroll at Baylor and rejoin the football team.Grobes comments were met with widespread support from eight of the Bears current assistant coaches, as well as several staff members and a handful of former players, who nearly simultaneously tweeted a link to the story containing his comments on Monday night, along with the hashtag #TRUTHDONTLIE.Baylor executive associate athletics director Nick Joos told ESPN on Monday night that the university addressed the issue of the Baylor coaches tweeting about the case.Weve handled that internally and were not going to comment any further on it, Joos said. Weve handled that here tonight.On Tuesday, Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades appeared on ESPN Central Texas AM 1660 and confirmed the situation is being handled internally and no Baylor coaches will be suspended.During his weekly news conference with reporters on Monday, Grobe said he made the decision to suspend Faulk after he was accused of sexual assault. According to KWTX, he later called the station to clarify his remarks and said he didnt make the decision to dismiss Faulk from the university and strip him of his scholarship.I think thats the way most coaches deal with problems if youve got kids that have issues. They may come back to the football team, but they may not temporarily be able to represent the football team, and thats not just Jeremy -- its any kid on our football team, Grobe told reporters on Monday.Faulk, who transferred to Baylor after playing at Garden City (Kansas) Community College, told ESPN on June 10 that he was dismissed from the Baylor team after he was questioned about a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on campus in April, and also about an incident that occurred when he was enrolled at Florida Atlantic.Faulk, from Palatka, Florida, told Outside the Lines that police never questioned him about the April 21 incident and he wasnt arrested. Baylor police provided ESPN with a heavily redacted incident report.On Friday, Baylors Joos said in a statement that Faulk was dismissed from the school on June 3 based upon violations of the university and athletic department Code of Conduct. Joos also said in the statement that Grobe and the interim athletics director made the decision to dismiss Faulk and did not require other Executive Council members nor Title IX staff involvement.Grrobe, who has guided the No. Discount Air Jordan 11. 11 Bears to a 5-0 record going into Saturdays home game against Kansas, didnt respond to phone calls from ESPN.com.Grobe, a former Wake Forest coach, was hired on May 30 to replace former Baylor coach Art Briles, who was fired three days earlier in the wake of the universitys sexual assault scandal.For the past several months, Baylor has been at the center of nationwide attention over its handling of sexual assault allegations and investigations, including several that involved athletes. After the Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton issued a scathing summary of its findings from a monthslong investigation, Briles was fired, former university president and chancellor Kenneth Starr was demoted and later resigned, and athletics director Ian McCaw resigned.Last week, Baylor Title IX coordinator Patty Crawford resigned and alleged that the universitys leadership wouldnt allow her to fulfill her responsibilities and that the school continues to violate Title IX. Crawford, who was hired as Baylors first full-time Title IX coordinator in 2014, also filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Educations Office for Civil Rights about the way Baylor is handling Title IX complaints.Faulks dismissal from Baylor angered Jeff Sims, a former Florida Atlantic assistant and head coach at Garden City. He said Baylor officials wanted to rid themselves of Faulk even before it was proved if he committed sexual assault. Sims also alleged that Grobe told him during a phone call in June that the allegations would go away if Faulk left Waco.Grobe says to me, Listen, if he just leaves, he can go on, and we wont stop him from playing anywhere, and this investigation will stop, Sims told ESPN.To me, thats the whole reason they got in trouble -- either Jeremys innocent, and they should go through the process, and he should get his scholarship back and play. Or hes guilty, and this girl should get some justice, Sims said.Faulk told Outside the Lines in June that he was initially told he was expelled from the university. At the time, Baylor officials would only confirm to Outside the Lines that he was no longer enrolled in school. In June, Faulk provided to Outside the Lines an email from a Baylor academic support official stating that his withdrawal had been finalized, but Faulk said he never asked to withdraw from school.The same morning Faulk received the email telling him his withdrawal from the university was final, he received another from the athletic department compliance office saying there is not a Title IX report at Baylor involving him. Faulk responded a few hours later by sending an email requesting a hearing and a chance to defend himself anyway. Only then did the Title IX office send him -- two hours later -- an email stating hed been named as a respondent in a case and had been accused of violating the schools sexual discrimination, violence and harassment policy. The email provided no further details of an incident.No ones given me a reason why Ive been released, Faulk told Outside the Lines. If I just leave, it will look like Im guilty, and I didnt do anything.Outside The Lines reporter Paula Lavigne contributed to this report. ' ' '
