Australias recent failings have raised questions over the effectiveness of Cricket Australias highly-proclaimed high-performance system. Nike Air Max 97 Kopen . Steven Smith, writes Mike Coward in Fox Sports, now needs to ensure that the game returns to the dressing room, because even the very best need timely reminders of how to occupy the crease and build an innings.How did it come to this? Of course, there are other factors at play. There is the hypocrisy of administrators who speak of the primacy of Test match cricket while busily devaluing Sheffield Shield cricket and devoting all their time and energy to short-form tournaments most notably the crudely but aptly named Big Bash League. There is the naked avarice of the same administrators who pay scant regard to the physical and mental welfare of their finest players by planning much too much cricket. And now there is this mad obsession with the need for day-night Test cricket with a pink ball. Good luck to any newbies who must begin their Test careers under lights at Adelaide and Brisbane over the next few weeks. Nike Air Max 97 Aanbieding . Halifax beat the Saint John Sea Dogs 7-5 on the strength of two goals apiece from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Murphy and Brent Andrews. Jonathan Drouin also scored and had three assists while Zachary Fucale made 17 saves for the Mooseheads (16-8-0), who led 6-1 after two periods. Nike Air Max 97 Sale Heren . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Guyana Amazon Warriors 161 for 4 (Mohammed 57*, Lynn 57, Reifer 2-22) beat Barbados Tridents 158 for 6 (Pollard 47, Taylor 37, Tanvir 2-24) by six wicketsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsBarbados Tridents will not be going back to the CPL finals for a third consecutive year after a six-wicket loss to Guyana Amazon Warriors in Florida. Tridents were eliminated from playoff contention as they lost their final league match of the 2016 season. Warriors, meanwhile, leaped past Jamaica Tallawahs into first place and guaranteed themselves at least two chances of making the CPL final for the third time, having moved four points clear of the third place St Lucia Zouks.Chris Lynn and Jason Mohammed were the batting saviours for Warriors in a tricky chase of 159. Tridents got off to a great start when Dwayne Smith was bowled through the gate on the first ball of the chase by Raymon Reifer. Lynn took the wind out of Tridents sails almost immediately, hitting his third and fourth balls for four and six respectively over the off side. Lynn again found the off-side boundary on three consecutive balls to end the second over from Ravi Rampaul, putting a charge into a crowd that was heavily behind Warriors.Captain Kieron Pollard went to spin starting with the third over and left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein and legspinner Imran Khan bowled brilliantly throughout the rest of the Powerplay to rein in Lynn and Nic Maddinson. Imran claimed Maddison to a mistimed slog well caught by a tumbling Ahmed Shehzad coming in from deep midwicket. After bolting to 27 for 1 in two overs, Warriors stood at 62 for 2 by the halfway stage, having failed to hit a boundary since the fifth over.Lynn rectified that by targetting David Wiese in the 11th over, hitting a six over midwicket on the first ball and then once more over the sight screen later in the over. Mohammed, who was subdued at the opposite end on 9 off 16 balls till the 12th over, finally found his range against Marchant de Lange in the 13th, clubbing him for the first two of his five sixes.Tridents began to roar back in the 15th over when Pollard took a good catch near the long-off boundary to claim Lynn for 57 off Reifer. Goedkoopste Nike Air Max 97. In the following over, Pollard struck Anthony Brambles toe with a slower-ball yorker as the umpire sided with Pollards appeal to silence the crowd and the required rate inflated to 10 for the final four overs.The pendulum swung back, however, as Mohammed slammed a ball on his legs deep over midwicket for six in the 18th over. Later in the over, Christopher Barnwell flicked a delivery just past short fine leg for a four and Warriors needed 16 from two overs. Mohammeds fourth sixth came in the 19th over off Rampaul, over extra cover to bring up his half-century in 37 balls and he ended the match in style by smashing his fifth and final one over the leg side before charging down the pitch for a victory leap.Despite fighting until the final over, the Tridents total always looked under par after Zouks had posted 206 for 3 earlier in the day. American Steven Taylor, who grew up in Miramar just 20 minutes away from the Central Broward Regional Park, looked at home playing inside his local stomping ground. Coming off a crisp 35 a day earlier playing for a CPL Invitational XI against a USA XI, Taylor was back in the Tridents line-up for the first time since July 16 and stroked 37 off 21 balls with seven fours.Adam Zampa ended Taylors knock, inducing the left-hander to scoop a drive to long-off. Despite a good platform laid with a score of 50 for 1 in the eighth over, no other Tridents batsman could match Taylors scoring rate until Wiese appeared with three overs to go to make 13 off six balls. Pollard top-scored with 47 off 36 balls but he and Shoaib Malik fell on consecutive balls just when a late surge was required. In addition to Pollard, Sohail Tanvir claimed Nicholas Pooran in a clever spell at the end, ensuring the Warriors target would not be insurmountable. ' ' '

We caught up with Liverpool and Manchester City legends John Barnes and Shaun Goater ahead of Sundays Capital One Cup final live on Sky Sports. Discount Asics Shoes . Barnes scored 108 goals in 407 appearances for the Reds and was part of their League Cup-winning side in 1995, while Goater netted 103 times in 212 games for the Citizens.We asked the duo which players will make the difference for their former clubs at Wembley, who holds the psychological advantage and more. Read on to see their verdicts… How important is the League Cup final to these sides?Barnes: Its Liverpools best chance for a trophy in Jurgen Klopps first year. Its always nice to win silverware and were here in the final so lets give it a good go. John Barnes holds up the Capital One Cup in front of the Liver Building in Liverpool Goater: Its going to be huge for City. We all know Manuel Pellegrini is moving on and I am sure the players will want to give him a good send off. They also have the new manager, Pep Guardiola, coming in and their own careers to think about. Who will be Liverpools key player?Barnes: Steve McManaman was the star of the 1995 League Cup final I played in but I dont think its necessarily going to be one player to have that influence this time. If you look at the team now youve got Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge, but I dont think there is any one player who is going to win the cup by himself. I think it will take a good all-round performance to beat a Manchester City side who will be favourites. Jordan Henderson could play a key role for Liverpool, according to Shaun Goater Goater: Liverpool got a good result against Aston Villa and I think Jordan Henderson is looking like a good leader. I would expect him to be involved and have an impact in midfield. Sturridge as well, it will be important for City to keep him quiet if he starts. Coutinho is a very exciting player so City will want to keep him quiet too.And who will be Citys player to watch?Barnes: David Silva, for me. Sergio Aguero is the one who scores the goals but when Silva plays well, they play well. Yaya Toure and Raheem Sterling are likely to play too so once again, City might not necessarily look to one individual to win the game, either. Former Manchester City striker Shaun Goater poses with the Capital One Cup Goater: It has to be Aguero. If they can get him involved in the game then he will have a big part to play. As long as he is fit he will always score goals because he is a phenomenal striker. He will always produce good situations for the team because he will attract defenders. The important thing for City is to keep him fit and then get him involved in the game. City have missed Vincent Kompany and to have him back in the defence is huge. They also need David Silva and Yaya Toure to be hitting their top form, too.Will Citys more recent trophy-winning experience be a factor on the day?Barnes: I dont think so. Its a one-off and anything can happen. Form and confidence will also play a part. Manchester Citys last league games havent gone well, so how confident will they be before the cup final? Vincent Kompany and Manuel Pellegrini celebrate with the Premier League trophy in 2014 Goater: Yes. The experienced players will know that at no point during the game will it be a breeze. It will be a challenge, and there will be periods where they will be up against it and have to stay tight and compact and work hard. Players like David Silva and Yaya Toure will look around at each other and know and understand the game. Their experience will be very handy.How much will Liverpools 4-1 win at the Etihad Stadium influence the game?Barnes: I dont think its necessarily a blueprint for beating City because Liverpool have played that way before and lost. I dont know whether they underestimated us but they performed badly that day. What you do have to do is defend very well against them and recognise that defensively they are not the greatest team. In my opinion its a question of who outscores who. Martin Skrtel celebrates after scoring Liverpools fourth goal at the Etihad Stadium Goater: It will influence the game in that City players know Liverpool were deserved winners on the day and they wont accept that they got beat like that. They will want to put that right, the players will be thinking Liverpool can be strong opponents on their day but City will not want to be taken apart in the way that they were at the Etihad. Liverpools League Cup wins We look back at Liverpools record eight wins League Cup wins ahead of Sundays final with Man City. I think its going to be a fiery game from the start. City will not only want to give a good send-off to Manuel Pellegrini but they will want to show that to the new manager they performed well in a cup final when he comes in. Players can say they were part of the recent success, so they will want to win and play well.Would winning the League Cup provide a confidence boost to finish the season strongly?Barnes: It will be a boost to finish the season strongly, however I dont think we can finish in the top four now because we are so far behind. So while it will be a boost, I dont think its necessarily enough to get us into the Champions League places. Theres an outside chance but for me its more the fact that we will have won a trophy in Klopps first year. Thats the biggest factor for me. Jurgen Klopp and Manuel Pellegrini will go head to head for the second time since the Germans arrival at Liverpool Goater: Its what Man City need. Right now they have three teams above them in the league. Winning the Capital One Cup would give the belief to City that they could perhaps go the rest of the season winning all their games. It will take something like that for City to be champions because other teams have to drop a number of points and City will need a great run if they are going to do it.How big a role will the fans play at Wembley?Barnes: Ill be on the pitch before the game for Capital One to try and create an atmosphere whereby we can break the world record for the most noise at a football stadium. For both teams, the fans are crucial. While Capital One are trying to create this atmosphere from a world record point of view, I think its important for both sets of fans to get behind their team. They have a big role to play. John Barnes will be calling on Liverpool supporters to create a special atmosphere at Wembley Goater: Huge. Before the game you will see myself doing my bit to get the fans going because fans make the difference. With fans singing and getting involved from the start, the players will feel it and look to put on a great performance.Finally, whats your prediction?Barnes: I think it will be a high-scoring game because they are two good attacking teams so Im going to go for a 3-2 win for Liverpool. Shaun Goater: Its a bit out there but I think City are wounded animals so Im going with 4-1. Its a big shout but I really think City are wounded from the recent result against Tottenham, the league defeat by Liverpool and the questions about whether they are playing for Pellegrini. At the end of the day, these players want to do it for themselves and for City, so Im going with a big win. Alongside Capital One, John Barnes and Shaun Goater will be helping fans make the difference at the Capital One Cup final at Wembley on Sunday, February 28.

Women have for years been trying to change the long-standing efforts by authorities to enforce strict interpretations of Islamic norms.USA Volleyball chairwoman Lori Okimura has been outspoken on the issue -- she even brought her own Let Iranian Women Enter Their Stadiums T-shirt to Brazil -- and checked in with Safai on Saturday to make sure she was OK.This is not a political statement. This is not a political issue, Okimura said. This, to me, is not about politics, its about gender. Volleyball has always been about equality, why now are we not sending that same consistent message?Women in Iran saw Safais efforts on TV and appreciated the solidarity, taking to social media to offer their support.The Olympic Spirit, which is against discrimination, is what Iranian women need in their country, Safai said. It should be the right of everyone, men and women, to attend a sports game. It is a pity that women have to travel to Brazil to watch and cheer for their national team.---Associated Press Photographer Jeff Roberson contributed to this report. ' ' '

STATELINE, Nev. Cheap Hawks Jerseys . -- Billy Joe Tolliver won the American Century Championship for the fourth time, beating fellow former NFL quarterback Mark Rypien with a par on the third hole of a playoff Sunday.

In the first Test against Bangladesh last month, Gareth Batty took four wickets, went for fewer runs an over than Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid, and England won. Cheap Air Max 720 Australia . For the second Test, England dropped the veteran offspinner in favour of his Surrey team-mate, the left-arm orthodox spinner Zafar Ansari, who went round the park some and got only two wickets as England lost by a fair bit. Yet it was Ansari and not Batty who lined up against India in Rajkot earlier this month.In England last summer, Batty took almost twice as many first-class wickets as Ansari. Of course, Ansari is 15 years younger with a long career ahead of him. As a left-armer, he offers variation to Moeens offspin and Rashids leggies. But could it be, though, that the England selectors always had Ansari pencilled in for the India Tests, with an eye on cricket history?England have only ever won four Test series in India. Each time, a left-arm spinner has featured prominently. Monty Panesar in 2012-13, Phil Edmonds in 1984-85, Derek Underwood in 1976-77. Douglas Jardine took two left-arm spinners to India in 1933-44, Hedley Verity and James Langridge, who took 33 of Englands 58 wickets. Never since has an England cricket team left for India without a slow left-armer in their touring party.Batty might have spun the ball more than Ansari in Rajkot, and offered Alastair Cook more control. He might even have got more wickets. But he wouldnt have been able to send down the sort of delivery with which Ansari almost got Cheteshwar Pujara in the first innings. Bowling round the wicket to the right- hander, Ansari trotted in close to the umpire and the wicket before leaping out wide in the delivery stride to create an angle and firing one in towards off stump. As it landed, the ball straightened - not enough to take it away from the batsman but enough to alter the natural angle of the delivery, which without the straightening have gone on to leg stump.Pujara, expecting a bit more turn than there was, played outside the line, was struck on the pad, and given out by umpire Chris Gaffaney. The decision was overturned using the DRS, as the ball was found to be bouncing over the stumps, but later in the innings Ansari dismissed nightwatchman Amit Mishra and Ajinkya Rahane with similar deliveries.Geoff Miller, who toured with Underwood in 1976-77 and was an England selector at the time of Panesars series in 2012-13, says that conditions in India suit left-arm spinners. It will turn out there but not always straightaway and not every ball, he says. That inconsistency makes the ball that straightens slightly particularly deadly. If the ball is not spinning, the left-arm-around angle gives the bowler a chance to beat batsmen on the inside as well as the outside.Ravindra Jadeja has taken 67 wickets at 18.73 on home pitches. He doesnt spin the ball that much or that often, but hes always an lbw threat. Pakistans Abdur Rehman caused England all sorts of problems on similar pitches, in Dubai in 2012-13. Fourteen of his 19 wickets in that series were either bowled or lbw.Former England left-arm swing bowler John Lever, who made his Test debut on the 1976-77 tour, says that when the left-armer bowls wide of the stumps, the right-hand batsman finds it more difficult to line up the delivery. The batsman has to decide, late, whether to play or leave, he says. If it doesnt turn and you leave it, theres a problem.Unlike with offspinners, the angle at which left-armers deliver the ball means that they dont actually have to bowl a doosra to cause the batsman an additional problem.The sort of ball that Ansari got his wickets with in Rajkot, the sort Jadeja bowls and Rehman bowled, starts off looking like its going to slide in with the arm. On landing, it straightens marginally or just holds its line. This presents right-hand batsmen with a confusing set of angles to deal with. Particularly a batsman who sets himself early against the balls original trajectory, towards leg stump. Or who, like Pujara against Ansari, plays outside the line, expecting it to turn away from the bat. These are the sort of deliveries that Kevin Pietersen had problems with a few years ago.Nine of Panesars 17 wickets in 2012-13, were either bowled or lbw. So were ten of Veritys and Langridges 33, but only three of Edmonds and five of Underwoods 1976-77 tally. As Ansari showed when he had R Ashwin caught at cover on the final evening in Rajkot, as England chased an unlikely victory, left-armers can get wickets with flight and traditional spin too.Even when left-arm spinners havent won series in India for England, theyve still been in the side, pressed into service for India duty. On Englands second tour to India, in 1951-52, Malcolm Hilton, a left-armer from Lancashire, played two of his four Tests and took 11 wickets. In 1963-64, England picked Yorkshires Don Wilson for the first time. A horse for the Indian course, Wilson played only one more Test, seven years later, against New Zealand. Ian Blackwell went to India in 2005-06.Regulars Tony Lock, Norman Gifford, Phil Tufnell and Ashley Giles have also toured India with England.Offspinner James Tredwell, who went to India in 2012-13 as back-up to Panesar and Graeme Swann, says that left-arm spinners have another advantage over other types of slow bowlers in that they tend to bowl the ball into the pitch a bit more, with a bit more pace. Peter Such, the former England offspinner and current ECB lead spin coach, says that this is an advantage on slower pitches, like those in India. Underwood, Edmonds and Panesar could all get the ball through at a strong pace without losing the ability to spin the ball, he points out.Englands left-arm spinners in their winning series in India have been both economical and a wicket threat. In 2012-13, Panesar took 17 wickets as England came back from 1-0 down to take the next two Tests. In the final match, with England needing a draw to clinch the series, he bowled 52 overs for just 81 runs. Edmonds too was miserly in 1984-85. In the second Test, in Delhi, where England won to square the series, he sent down 88.2 overs for just 143 runs (while taking six wickets). During the series, he went, on average, at 2.11 an over. Underwood, too, kept the runs down when he wasnt taking wickets. His economy rate, 2.01, was the lowest of all England bowlers in 1976-77. Deadly would put the ball on the spot all the time, create pressure, says Lever, who bagged 26 wickets on that tour himself. Underwood hated going for runs, you could see it in his body language, in his facial expressions. He was always trying to bowl dot balls. A dot ball is a good ball, hed say. Last ball of every over had to be a dot ball.Such observes that left-armers have another way of keeping the score down - bowling over the wicket into the rough outside the right-handers leg stump. Giles did this to great effect in 2000-01, much to Sachin Tendulkars annoyance.Tredwell adds that left-armers can also cause trouble for left-hand batsmen later in the game, when rough starts appearing outside their off stump from right-arm seam bowlers following through on the pitch. There arent as many left-arm seamers, so offspinners spend more time bowling on the good part of the wicket, he says.Not that this has mattered much down the years. In 49 Test matches spread over 13 tours and 84 years, only 14 left-hand batsmen (of whom only six are recognised batsmen) have played for India against England in India.The preponderance of right-handers is borne out by figures from Indian domestic cricket. Of the top 20 all-time Ranji Trophy run-makers, only four are left-handers. Not hugely surprising, then, that ten of the top 20 bowlers are left-arm spinners. As Such says, Spinners are more effective when their stock delivery turns away from the batsman.The left-armers magic didnt work every time for England. Tufnell struggled in 1992-93, as did all the other England bowlers. Panesar and Ian Blackwell took five wickets for 383 runs between them in 2005-06, and on the next tour, Panesar averaged over 50. Even Underwood struggled on the flat, lifeless pitches that India prepared in 1981-82. Its also worth pointing out that in all four series in which they were successful, England scored heavily enough for the sort of attritional approach favoured by their left-arm spinners to reap dividends.Ansari is very much Englands third spinner. His job is to keep things steady, in shorter spells, while Moeen, Rashid, and maybe, given the right conditions, the seamers, threaten Indias batting line-up.In some ways it will be harder for Ansari to do this than it was for his more illustrious predecessors. And not just because he is only starting out on his career and is as yet unproven at Test level, but because cricket isnt such an attritional game these days and batsmen are adept at finding ways of scoring off even the most miserly bowler.The DRS might make lbws more likely but it also encourages batsmen to play with their bat rather than bat and pad. In the past, a stock ball from a left-arm-round like Ansari, angled into the pads, might have brought a tentative prod forward, the batsman unsure whether the ball will straighten or turn. These days, batsmen are more flexible, less patient.If, though, Ansari can provide England with a solid third spinning option, and along the way snaffle out one or two Indian batsmen with the sort of awkward delivery that did for Mishra and Rahane and almost got Pujara in Rajkot, then Trevor Bayliss, Cook and Co, will be happy. And the legend of the left-arm English spinner in India will live on. Air Max 720 Australia . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. Nike Air Max 720 Release . Those lessons were more than enough to overwhelm the Utah Jazz.

Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said Julio Jones is capable of reaching an NFL-record 2,000 receiving yards in a season, and while Jones agreed, he said his primary focus is on winning.I can, but Im going to do what helps the team win, Jones told If thats me getting 2,000 on the way to being a great teammate, lets do it. But if its not required for me to win games, hey, Im all about winning.Jones posted the second-highest single-season receiving total in NFL history last season with 1,871 receiving yards on 136 catches. Former Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson holds the league record with 1,964 yards on 122 catches set in 2012.Can he do it? Absolutely he can. Is it a good thing? If weve won 16 games, its a great thing, Ryan said. Julio will tell you the same thing. If its going to help us win, hell yeah its a good thing. It depends on wins. At the end of the day, thats all thats important.The Falcons, who failed to make the playoffs the past three years, intend to take more deep shots this season, which could result in more big-pplay opportunities for Jones. Wholesale Air Max 720. At the same time, defenses are certain to plan for the game to stop him. But those defenses might not be able to key on Jones as much if Ryan gets more production out of other targets such as newcomer Mohamed Sanu, second-year receiver Justin Hardy, veteran tight end Jacob Tamme?and rookie Austin Hooper.Not to mention a successful running game behind the combination of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman could open up more play-action opportunities, allowing Ryan to throw deep to Jones more often. Last season, Jones was targeted 15 times on throws of 25-plus air yards down the field and had six receptions for 270 yards with one touchdown.Jones, who amassed 642 yards after the catch a year ago, had nine games of 100-plus receiving yards in 2015, including a season-high 178 in a 20-13 upset of the 14-0 Panthers. Hell face at least three top-notch pass defenses this season with Carolina, Denver and Seattle. ' ' '

Wholesale Soccer Jerseys .The Jets slipped from fourth to sixth after their first loss of the season, a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of leaders Sydney FC, and will attempt to bounce back on Saturday away to the Phoenix.Defender Jason Hoffman remembered well how last campaigns promising start soon turned into a 10-match winless run and stressed the importance of rebounding quickly.Despite the slump, they defeated Wellington in all three meetings.And while Hoffman conceded it was never easy to travel across the ditch, he sensed there couldnt be a more ideal time than when Ernie Merricks last-placed side were low on confidence after Mondays dismal 6-1 loss to Melbourne Victory.Theres no better opportunity against a Wellington team whos bottom of a league, even though its early days, Hoffman said.Wellington are unfortunate to be there; they should have probably got a result against Sydney at home the week before so we cant underestimate them.But its extremely important for us to take this opportunity to keep them lower on the table and keep us in touch with the top.The Jets depleted defensive stocks will be stretched further with Ben Kantarovski likely to miss the next month with a torn meniscus.With centre-backs Lachlan Jackson (ankle) and Daniel Mullen (knee) already out, coach Mark Jones faces a conundrum deciding who will partner captain Nigel Boogaard.At the very least, Hoffman said Phoenix defender Dylan Foxs suspension for his red card against Victory would help even things up.In other encouraging news, in-form winger Andrew Nabbout trained in part on Tuesday, a little more than a week after suffering a groin injury playing against Western Sydney.Hes always chomping at the bit to play, Boogaard said.Hopefully, hes fit and raring to go for the weekend because hes a great addition and adds that pace and power we need in those wide areas.

Pro Bowl return man Devin Hester has agreed to a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens and will sign with the team Sunday, a league source told ESPNs Adam Schefter. Cheap Shoes Australia Onine .Hester had worked out for the Ravens for a second straight day on Saturday.Hester underwent surgery on his right big toe in January, and the expected recovery time was three to six months. The four-time Pro Bowl returner broke one of the two sesamoid bones, which act as a pulley for tendons.The Ravens were disappointed with how their returners have fared this summer. Michael Campanaro was the presumed leader in the competition, but he struggled to stay healthy and was placed on injured reserve. Keenan Reynolds, who played quarterback at Navy, has had trouble fielding kicks and was released Saturday.Hester, 33, was released by the Atlanta Falcons on July 26. He holds the NFL records for punt return touchdowns (14) and return (punt and kickoff combined) touchdowns (20).Information from ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley was used in this report. Womens Shoes Australia . General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. Wholesale Shoes Australia . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. . The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. Mitchell Johnson has bowled 67 times to Ajinkya Rahane in Tests. Since this is really about MCG, we can narrow it down to 34 balls. And because we are talking about Rahanes century in particular, to 20 balls, bowled in the first innings of the Boxing Day Test of 2014. It has been a year and a half since that Test, and I show Rahane a still from the innings. He smiles a little; I dont need to tell him why this still. It is not a frame of him playing a shot, but Rahane knows exactly what delivery it is. He tells me all about the lead-up and follow-up to the ball before I say anything.On first look there isnt much extraordinary about the image. The ball has just left Johnsons hand. Virat Kohli, the non-striker, has his right glove in his left hand and is looking at Johnsons release. There is a black band on Johnsons bowling arm. This is a series being played in the shadow of Phillip Hughes death, which looms large over the cricket, though the teams have moved on to phoney wars of sledging and imagined slights. Even so, the bouncer now is more than just a short-pitched delivery.There is no way to tell from the still that the delivery is going to be a bouncer; you just dont pick length so early. Rahanes left leg, the front leg, has moved away from the stumps. The back foot has gone a little back and across. I want to tell him, You are premeditating in Test cricket. Not when you are ahead or when batting with the tail. You are 170 behind, for f***s sake, I want to say. I want to tell him his side had endured collapses of 8 for 73 and 6 for 67 in the last two Tests. Hell, even in this Test they will go on to lose their last seven wickets for 56 runs.Rahane knows what I am trying to get at. He knew it then. Such audacity, even though he was batting on 115, is surprising for any Test batsman, let alone someone who has had to fight a reputation of not being assertive enough, of being almost meek. Thats for later, though. To listen to Rahane talk about this shot and this innings is to dispel any notion that he might ever have been a pushover. I had visualised this shot before I went out to bat, he says. And all the while I was batting, I knew I was going to hit him the moment he pitched short.Johnson had bowled three short balls before this one. The first one Rahane pulled, but not sweetly, for three over midwicket. It took him to 74. The second drew a false stroke on the pull, but the top edge landed safely, taking him to 88. To the third he tried a ramp but failed to connect. Now he was ready. He had fielders at third man and deep square leg. I knew I had to hit him in front of midwicket if he pitched short. Thats why I opened up a little.Basically, he goes on matter-of-factly, we had to dominate.Why premeditation? Instinct, Rahane says. Somehow, instinctively, I knew this ball was going to be short.Then I release the pause button. Rahane plays the most dismissive pull shot you can imagine. It takes the ball three seconds to reach arguably the farthest fence in international cricket. Was this more than just four runs? I think it was a big statement, Rahane says. He does not sound arrogant.It just felt wow from inside. What just happened? I couldnt exactly process it at that point, but at the end of the day it felt great. At that point even I was struggling to figure out what was happening.Rahane was now inside Johnsons head. He was reading what Johnson was going to bowl even before Johnson let go. He saw a bluff coming. He showed Johnson the back foot again, setting up for another pull but expecting a full delivery. The weight didnt entirely go back, and he push-drove the full delivery through mid-off for four. Then he knew another bouncer was on its way. And this time, even before the ball had pitched, well inside Johnsons half, Rahane moved his front leg away, wider than where the wide line in limited-overs cricket would be, and he smacked Johnson even more dismissively than earlier.This wasnt any other caning. This was coming from a side that had lost its last six Tests in Australia. A side that had lost 15 and won one of its last 19 Tests away. A side that was still behind in this Test. Against a bowler known for tormenting visiting sides. This wasnt a charmed assault in a nothing-to-lose situation. This was a calculated charge. This was a caning by a batsman from whom, for whatever reason, you didnt expect it.At the end of the Test, Kohli, who scored four hundreds in four Tests on that tour, Indias go-to man for all things aggressive, sounded in awe of Rahanes aggression. During their 262-run stand, Kohli went through an unsettled period. He took offence to Johnson hitting him with a throw while trying to run him out and lost his concentration. Contrary to the popular belief that confrontation spurs Kohli on, he played three bad shots that nearly got him out in nine Johnson deliveries.During all that verbal posturing, Rahane looked almost out of place, like the only person not high at a rave. Yet he spotted something. He spotted Johnson didnt like getting back as good as he gave. So he stopped trying to calm Kohli down. Instead he took the heat off his future captain by taking Australia apart. In the time that Kohli scored nine runs, Rahane plundered 37. He faced 33 balls in that ten-over phase.In a long innings, every batsman goes through ten to 15 minutes when he gets uncomfortable, Rahane says of the assault. As a colleague, as a team-mate, you have to help your partner out. At that time I had to figure out ways of staying on strike and scoring runs so that they dont work up a momentum against Virat. We didnt discuss it as such that I have to shield Virat. I just told him I am going to have a go, and he told me to back myself if I felt that way.Visualisation in sport is basically controlled fantasy. Batsmen go to the venue a day before the match, stand at the top of the pitch, imagine a full house, play shadow shots, imagine the applause, imagine the main threat in the opposition running up to bowl and how they are going to deal with the meanest deliveries that come their way. Before he visualises, Wayne Rooney finds out the colour of the kit, down to the socks, that his team will wear on match day. While athletes dont always articulate it well, and usually only say that visualisation puts them in a positive state of mind, sports psychologists believe that visualising different situations you are likely to find yourself in prepares you for them subconsciously.At Kingsmead in his third Test, one Boxing Day before the MCG, with only a nervous debut and a middling second Test behind him, Rahane ran into a red-hot Dale Steyn. This was perhaps the first time he was facing such high-quality pace bowling. Steyn hit him on the helmet, then on the bicep. After the second blow he walked right up to Rahane, waiting for him to rub his arm. Rahane refused to show any pain.Steyn goaded Rahane, telling him it was okay to rub because a hard leather ball was bound to hurt when hurled at 140-plus kph and hits an arm 22 yards away. Rahane didnt rub. He didnt look away. When Steyn turned around and when Rahane finally tended to the blow, a voice from the slips said something to the effect of, Now he is rubbing, but Rahane was too involved in seeing Steyn off to notice.I remember thinking, Everybody is watching, he says. Back home on TV too. I didnt want to show to the world I was a soft boy. Or that the ball has hurt me. I had to give Dale Steyn a strong message too. That nothing has happened to me. That if you will keep standing here, I will also keep staring at you. You see, the batsman has an advantage here: the bowler has to go back to his mark at some point, and even if he turns around and looks at you, you can still meet his stare. I never lost eye contact.Rahane ended unbeaten on 51 in that innings, and was the last man out, for 96, in the second. In that first innings he had come in to bat during a collapse after a whole first session had been lost to rain. During the lunch break he didnt eat. He just sat in his seat, visualising how he was going to dominate, attack.If Durban didnt exactly go according to the visualisation, Melbourne a year later did. One hundred and forty-seven runs off 171 balls, including 27 off 20 from Johnson: Rahane had played that innings in his mind even before he went out to bat.That innings was a proper example of visualisation. I had visualised these guys are going to bowl short at me and I will hit them this way. Rahane looks at the conditions a day before the match, looks at the attack, and then imagines how he will respond in various situations, from walking out at 30 for 3 to 300 for 3. The common theme is: How can I dominate?In life if there are positive things in your mind, they will happen, Rahane says, talking about visualisation. If you keep thinking negative things, they will happen. Generally the same holds for cricket. A day before the match I visualise. Shadow-practise. Who are we playing, what will their attack be, how will the conditions be, how are they likely to bowl, what will my game plan be, how can I dominate? This prepares your mind. Then during the nets sessions, you get an idea of the conditions.In Melbourne, as he saw India reach 140-plus for 2, Rahane, padded up, started deleting other scenarios from his mind, and reinforced the attacking visualisations. At that time [M] Vijay and Virat were batting with good momentum. I didnt want to break that momentum. I thought I will give myself 15-20 minutes, but after that I will need to attack. Because as a No. 5 batsman you get to face the old ball, and the old Kookaburra yields a lot of runs.To Rahane, visualisation is an organic process and doesnt interfere with the instinctive part of batting. Once you go out, you dont think too much. Whatever you have visualised is already fed in your mind. Now you stop thinking what is going to happen, now you just react, but your mind is subconsciously prepared.He even manipulates his visualisation through diary-writing. In his century at Lords in 2014, he charged James Anderson, bowling with the second new ball, to send him for a six over long-on. He took 27 off 22 deliveries from, yet again, the leader of the attack. That evening he wrote in minute detail all that had happened: every room-service waiter telling him in the lead-up to the innings how special a Lords hundred is, every guest at the team dinner telling him how special it is being up on the honours board, walking through the Long Room and then understanding what the fuss was about. The call at the end of the day. From Sachin Tendulkar, who had just left London but had followed the news.Tendulkar told Rahane, Mark my words, because of your innings we will win the match. Rahane had felt the same when he batted. That if he somehow took India from 145 for 7 to around 300, they could win on that seamer-friendly pitch with spongy bounce. So Rahane attacked with the tail for company. He wrote all of this in his journal, to remind him what to visualise the next time he was in a slump or not feeling right or not visualising properly.To visualise yourself playing Test cricket but not getting to do so on 13 straight occasions when part of the Test squad can be tiring. Especially when your team is not even winning. First Rahane waited through the Australia tour of 2011-12 where everybody failed, bar Kohli, but nobody was touched because everybody was a legend. Then Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman retired, but Suresh Raina jumped the queue. Then when Raina failed, Yuvraj Singh went past Rahane. Then when even Yuvraj failed, the vacancy was filled by Ravindra Jadeja. While Raina, Yuvraj and Jadeja were scoring runs in domestic cricket to mount comebacks, Rahane was carrying drinks, the perfect team man, the enthusiastic fielder, the perfect substitute, as somebody in the team once remarked.It was the same in the IPL. After Rahane struggled to get games for the star-studded Mumbai Indians, the star-makers Rajasthan Royals thought they had found their next big product in 2011. Except, the captain, Shane Warne, wasnt impressed at first. Rahane struggled to get going in two practice games, played on low, slow surfaces. To be fair to Warne, he came in a weeek before the tournament and was expected to make judgements based on a few nets sessions and practice games. Online Shoes Australia Cheap. In two of his first four matches for Royals, Rahane didnt get to bat; in the other two he batted at Nos. 5 and 7. Then in his fifth match, Royals ninth that season, he came in with Ross Taylor struggling in a tight chase. When he helped Taylor finish the match off, Warne epiphanised audibly in the balcony, This kid can bat. Who is this kid?After they had both scored centuries at the MCG, Kohli was the first person to recognise that Rahane had taken the heat off him. Yet he sounded a little surprised - pleasantly. There was a bit of Warne to how Kohli reacted to that innings. They both gave Rahane chances, but now they sounded like Rahane had exceeded their expectations. Listen to Kohli speak about Rahane since that innings, and you will notice a different respect.Even Rahanes personal coach, Pravin Amre, had taken his time getting convinced. He once said to the Indian Express: He was in the same [Under-17] batch as Virat and Jadeja, and to be honest, he didnt catch anyones eye because of his body language. But since we spoke the same language, we got along well and I discovered the real Ajinkya.What was wrong with the body language? I dont think there was anything wrong, Rahane says. I wouldnt open up, thats all, but you couldnt fault my body language on the field. Off the field, I didnt mix too much. After practice in the evening, I would go to my hotel room, eat and go to sleep. After matches I would go to my hotel room, eat and go to sleep.Rahane came up as a batsman in a changing landscape for Indian cricket. These Indian cricketers were visibly and verbally more aggressive. Shot-making began to cloud the assessment of batsmen. Rahane was a shot-maker but not in the mould of those who can turn a Test in a session. And the one slot of a less flamboyant batsman had been taken by Cheteshwar Pujara, who was prolific from age-group cricket onwards. Rahane never made it to an India Under-19 World Cup side. He was caught in between, and he was shy. In a world of bluster, it was perhaps misunderstood for softness. Every domestic bowler you asked about Rahane somehow had the view that he didnt turn up on the big occasion or in tough situations, and that was perhaps why India were wary of giving him his debut despite so many openings. That despite an average of 56.30 in the first innings of knockout matches in first-class cricket.To some, this image was reinforced when he made a nervous Test debut in Delhi in 2013. Even the most generous observers wondered if he lacked class. If the team had been right to play anyone but Rahane.Rahane should have been a furious man in 2012. He should have kicked and screamed. He should have wondered what it would take.Rahane, he just kept working harder, getting fitter, learning the game. On his last day of international cricket late in 2013, even as he was trying to process the emotions in and around him, Tendulkar called Rahane over and, as he writes in his autobiography, told him he might feel hard done by what had happened in his career so far but he should continue to be the way he is, for I was sure [he] would get another chance.Players averaging in the 30s were getting chances ahead of Rahane for inexplicable reasons, and he wasnt even getting the chance to go play for Mumbai and pile on more runs because he was the perfect substitute. The fans felt it, the analysts felt it, as Tendulkar did, but somehow Rahane didnt let the disappointment bog him down. He didnt speak about it to Dravid and Paddy Upton, his mentors at Rajasthan Royals.If you talk to Rahane about that phase, or the one after that horror debut, he communicates an unshakeable trust in the sport. Almost as if he couldnt imagine cricket would in the final analysis be unfair to him after all the dedication and the love he had put into it. Cricket is my passion, my love, he says. If I let these things disappoint me, it is not right. Maybe it was not my time, but time changes. I knew it would change for me too.There was also a quiet belief that a Test debut was not his destination but the start of a journey. If you have to play up to a certain level then its different, Rahane says of the time spent on the bench. But if you are aiming to be one of the top players in the world, you have to take everything the right way. To get bogged down at that time wouldnt have been the right attitude.To keep improving, to keep moving towards being one of the top cricketers in the world, and now to stay there, Rahane has placed around himself an impeccable group of people. Amre, his personal coach, knows his batting inside out but doesnt interfere with him when he is away with India. Only at the end of tours, or if Rahane phones him, does Amre suggest anything. They work between series. Sanjay Bangar, the India batting coach, is so loyal he wont talk about any technical changes he has helped Rahane with. Before him, Duncan Fletcher was an encyclopaedia of batting. From time to time Tendulkar passes on little tips that go a long way. With Dravid at Rajasthan Royals, Rahane grew as a person.If Rahane is the most improved player in Indian cricket over the last five years, its because he is more than willing to improve. Before going to South Africa and Australia, he practised with wet rubber balls on a cement floor or AstroTurf. He took throwdowns from 15 yards to replicate the steep bounce. For the England tour he played with plastic balls to replicate the swing. That was before joining the team.Many batsmen are known to be very particular about their techniques, almost paranoid about making changes, but Rahane says he is always open to them. When somebody who knows the game tells you something, you have to give it a shot. There is no harm in it. I take the advice on, train with Pravin sir first, and then I see if it suits me. It is important to give these changes time because they are not magic. I dont discard them if they dont work at first.During one of the first televised Ranji matches that Rahane played, he received a text from Tendulkar, who asked Rahane to reduce the play on the bottom hand. If you do that, you will see you can play the shots you are struggling to play. So off to the nets went Rahane and worked it out with Amre.Early in 2013, Steve Finn bowled him through the gate in back-to-back ODIs. Rahane was dropped. The day he got home, he rang Amre and worked on it at the MCA nets in the Bandra Kurla Complex. We worked out that I was not watching the ball for long enough, which was resulting in me playing early and creating a gap between bat and pad.In 2013, before Rahane and India embarked on a tough year of 13 away Tests in pacy conditions, Fletcher introduced the teams young batsmen to a wider stance and a forward press. Fletcher believed in preparing early when facing quick bowling that was likely to deviate. If you press, Fletcher wrote in Ashes Regained, then you only have a small final movement to make to get to the pitch of the ball. So you can make your final decision much later.And, anyway, one of my major philosophies about batting is that the more movement you make, the greater the chance of error content. I favour a reasonably wide stance for a batsman, so that his press and then final movement dont have to be too large.The wider stance worked for Rahane on his overseas trips, but when he realised it was hampering his back-foot play because of the early forward commitment, he was quick to go back to a narrower stance on Bangars advice. Now he has more options.Having played their domestic cricket on surfaces that encouraged pace more than spin, having played most of their initial international cricket overseas, the current set of India batsmen, too, found the going difficult when raging turners were rolled out for South Africa in 2015. Rahane struggled, playing in front of his body for easy bat-pad catches.When he came to Delhi, the venue for the last Test and the scene of his horror debut, he was a different batsman against spin. He made two centuries in the same Test - the only two by anyone in the series. He had made the necessary changes. Earlier he would hold his bat high as a spinner approached, tapping it down by his feet just at the point of delivery. In Delhi the bat stayed low and tapped a couple of times with minimal backlift as the bowler approached.Rahane wanted to play the ball late, but the bat coming down from the height of the stumps built its own momentum and lunged ahead of the body. Keeping the bat down, which in turn also brought his head lower, he was right on top of the ball and playing it late. He made this change in two net sessions between the Nagpur and Delhi Tests. First he called Amre and told him he felt he needed to lower his backlift. Once Amre agreed, Rahane went to Bangar and worked it out. Generally Rahane bats only about a couple of overs the day before a Test, only for rhythm and flow, but now, because he couldnt wait for the off-season, he turned Test-match nets into a lab.At the Rajasthan Royals nets Paddy Upton had seen the perfectionist. The way he practised was always with a very clear purpose, Upton says. In the nets Ajinkya would be very clear exactly where his feet were, exactly where his hands were, exactly real attention to his balance, his trigger movement, every small detail of the technical aspects of his batting, he would really pay attention. If he was practising working on shots, he was very specific with what shots.In his first first-class season, Rahane must have dropped 15 catches, according to his team-mates. One of those drops was Saurashtras Shitanshu Kotak early on in a match Mumbai needed to win to stay alive. Kotak went on to bat for 13 hours and 16 minutes to eliminate an outright result. Rahane was filthy with himself. He began to stay back after training for the extra catches. Challenged myself during practice, he says. If you take easy catches in practice, you go into a comfort zone. The more you practise out of your comfort zone, the better. Then you can be comfortable in a match. If you are comfortable in practice, then it gets difficult in matches.Once upon a time the last man India would play, Rahane is now the first name you put down in an Indian Test XI. Ahead of even R Ashwin, who has more Man-of-the-Series awards than any other Indian, because Rahane has a Test game for all conditions and all situations. Its not very easy to pinpoint an Ajinkya Rahane weakness, Dravid says. You could say initially he wasnt that great against the short ball, but that was more because he hadnt played that pace. Once he got used to that pace he was fine. You cant say he is weak against fast bowling or spin. He has just got a good solid game.With other batsmen you know what strategy and tactic to follow. With Rahane it is difficult to actually, when you sit in a team meeting, have some points. There is no obvious weakness. So far. While he may not have great strengths that you see with other batsmen - Virat flicking balls off the middle stump or Rohit hitting them a long way - as an overall package, you cant pick holes in his game.Rahane might have reached a stage where he goes out seeking tough situations. Dravid knows the feeling.For me after playing a year of international cricket, I knew I could do it. I just knew. It took me a year. I played Ambrose. I played Donald. I played Walsh. I got a good feeling. I got a one-day hundred. I went on tours. I approached tours differently. I just felt, I actually belong here. Then you start thinking differently. Now I want to do more for the team. Now I want to become a match-winner. Now I want to do it when it is tough.Sometimes you need a bit of success. Something just clicks. Thats when you know, Boss, I belong here. He has developed his attacking game. He now knows it deep down that, Boss, if I work hard, if I practise, I can succeed at this level. It is a very good feeling to have. It takes some time to come, but when it comes you know it. You know, Boss, I belong here. ' ' '

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Rafael Nadal was something to behold during his third-round singles match on a windswept Thursday at Olympic Centre Court.True, he flashed plenty of raggedness. No surprise there, given that injuries and self-doubt have recently stunted his play.But mixed amid a stream of unforced errors in a 7-6 (5), 6-4 win against Frances Gilles Simon were enough vibrant glimpses of vintage Nadal to widen the eyes. There were stirring side-to-side dashes. There were buzz-saw forehands that looked sure to sail three feet long only to crash down, suddenly and violently, straight into play.Same as always, the 30-year-old Spaniards intensity filled the stadium. He looked like he would chew off an arm if it meant giving himself a better chance to win. It was no surprise then, when, after the match, he said in his brief comments that he would fight to the death for a medal.Nadal, of course, is as tough a competitor as weve ever seen in any sport. He didnt need to play here. He already has a singles gold medal, from Beijing in 2008. A wrist injury caused him to miss the 2016 Wimbledon after he pulled out of his beloved French Open. And yet here he is, on the brink of a performance that would significantly gild his legend. Two more golds are a possibility in Rio. He followed the Simon match by winning in the semifinals of doubles with partner Marc Lopez. (Nadal then pulled out of the first round of mixed doubles with Garbine Muguruza.)?But if Nadal at the 2016 Rio Games underscores his dogged competitiveness, it is also a potent reminder of something missing. Or, rather, someone: Roger Federer.Martina had Chris. McEnroe had Borg. Agassi had Sampras. Since they first played in 2003, Nadal has always had Federer. Both, no doubt, have lost a step. Other rivalries have begun. But no matchups have defined mens tennis in its current form like the tense battles waged when the two greats faced off in their best days. At Wimbledon in 2008, they played five scintillating sets that finished with the dusky All England Club reveling in, arguably, the greatest match in tennis history.Ah, what fun these two could have had, playing in front of the electric crowds in Rio.Only Federer is nowhere to be seen. As far back as 2012, he was saying hed play at least long enough to take the court in Brazil. Then 2016 came, and with it a knee surgery and a balky back and birthday No. Alex Avila Jersey. 35. After losing gamely in the Wimbledon semifinals last month, Federer shut down his entire 2016 season to heal up. The closest he came to Rio was a lonely tweet -- Wish I was there with you -- typed from some undisclosed location during the Games opening ceremonies.Sadly, opportunities like this -- the Spaniard and the Swiss duking it out with the whole world watching -- might not come again. There was a period when Nadal and Federer, despite never playing each other in the Olympics, averaged four or five matchups every year. (Nadal owns a commanding 23-11 head-to-head record, in good part because prime Federer was often good enough to make it to the finals of the clay tournaments where Nadal reigned.)But they have played less and less with the passing of each season. There was just one match in 2014, a Nadal victory at the Australian Open. Then a single match in 2015, Federer winning in Basil. 2016 will end without them playing at all. Ugh.If Federer were here, they could have been closing in on a Rio showdown. Given the way their careers have been trending, and paying a nod to the strength-sapping march of time, it just might have been their last great match.Still, there is what might have been, and there is the plain reality of the moment. Upsets and the Federer no-show have turned the tennis star power in Rio down a notch, but well-known players such as Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro remain, and theyll be challenged in the closing days by the likes of Americans Madison Keys and Steve Johnson, who both advanced in singles Thursday.The Olympic tournament is proving to be memorable, full of great play and stands brimming with rhythmic chants, stomping feet and flag-waving national pride. That kind of atmosphere was on full display Thursday afternoon, when Andy Murray beat back stubborn 40th-ranked Italian Fabio Fognini, digging out of the 3-0 third-set hole by winning the last six games.Both have a few matches to go, but Murray and Nadal are now favored to meet in the final. That would be the 2008 gold medal holder against the 2012 champion, a wonderful and attractive match, perhaps as good as any that will be played this year.But it wouldnt be Federer versus Nadal.

The Alouettes are off to a 2-4 start, and now go on the road to face a Saskatchewan Roughrider team looking to avenge its first loss of the season. You can see all the action on TSN and TSN Mobile TV beginning at 4pm et/1pm pt. "It doesnt sit well with anybody," veteran quarterback Anthony Calvillo told reporters Friday. "We are just not accustomed to being 2-4. Its very disturbing." Normally, this is the time of year when general manager Jim Popp would be touring NFL camps in search of import talent. Instead, he is on the sidelines as a replacement for fired head coach Dan Hawkins, trying to return the team to its former winning ways. "Its an evaluation as much as anything," said Popp, who considers himself a "transition" coach. "And it seems like its going in the right direction." Calvillo is convinced that the talent is there and he says the players have confidence in the coaching staff. "Its part of the cycle, part of football life," he said of the teams current woes, adding that he, personally, is determined to fight his way through it. "Im not a quitter." As scenarios go, Mosaic Stadium is not the ideal environment for a team that is sputtering as opposed to streaking. Popp knows that road games are a challenge at the best of times, and Ridervile in particular is "a very tough place" to play. The Roughriders announced a sellout crowd of 40,637 will take in Saturdays game. Calvillo has always loved competing in Saskatchewan, owing to the energized and energizing atmosphere created by the hometown fans. "At the same time," he said, "we have a job to do." Forr their part, the Roughriders are downplaying last weeks 42-27 loss to the Stampeders that ended their bid at a perfect season. Wholesale Baseball Jerseys Online. "On defence, we could have done a lot more things, we know that," linebacker Craig Butler said. "This defence takes a lot of pride in everything we do. Well bounce back." Added defensive back Dwight Anderson: "This has been a great week in practice. Im looking forward to (Saturdays) game." Slotback Geroy Simon says he holds the Alouettes defence in high regard, particularly the teams secondary. "Theyre a veteran group and they play aggressively," he said. "I think weve just got to execute, thats all. We have to keep the ball out of (Calvillos) hands. We need to come up with first downs." Quarterback Darian Durant says the Roughriders are ready to move on from last weeks loss. "Definitely, the guys are a lot more motivated," he said. "(Last week) was a wake-up call for us and wake-up calls are good. We have to make sure we dont look behind us. We have to look ahead." By "looking ahead," Durant does not mean looking past the Alouettes. Indeed, he has been cautioning his teammates not to judge Montreal on its record. "We cant take them lightly," he said. "They have weapons all over the place." Although they have never been teammates, Durant has always admired Calvillo, for his ability to read defences and his penchant for building close relationships with his receivers. By observing Calvillo, he has also learned "how to be a pro." As recently as Friday, Saskatchewan head coach Corey Chamblin discussed with his players the importance of regaining that "winning attitude." He has dismissed the loss in Calgary as simply being one of those things. "It wasnt our night," he said. ' ' '

Its an unveiling fit for the champions. Cheap Ducks Jerseys .Liverpool will make their long-awaited season debut at Anfield against titleholders Leicester City on Saturday, when the already-historic cauldron will sit even more fans in the newly expanded Main Stand.The Reds (1-1-1) were nomads in the early part of the season before the international break, making two successful trips to London with a season-opening victory at Arsenal and a draw at White Hart Lane versus Tottenham Hotspur around a flat 2-0 defeat at Burnley.Jurgen Klopps team also advanced in the League Cup with an easy 5-0 win at Burton Albion, but the time has finally come to take the pitch at Anfield -- 122 days since their last match there -- where 8,500 new seats in the Main Stand have been added to give an imposing home venue even more energy and volume with a capacity of 54,000.What they did there… outstanding job, Klopp told Liverpools official website Thursday. Ive got no idea how somebody could do something like this, but when you stand in front of it, its really amazing.This is a good place, a good opponent, with the champions coming. It was really well deserved what (Leicester City) did last season. Theyre still good, but its now another season. Its our first home game and with 8,000 more in the stadium -- thats more power and we should use this.Though it is a new season, Liverpool are still experiencing growing pains at the back. The Reds have still yet to post a clean sheet in league play, conceding six goals, and they will be sternly tested by a Foxes side continuing to evolve past their championship campaign of 2015-16.One player who will not be able to help Liverpool is midfielder Emre Can, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury. Defender Mamadou Sakho, whose ban for using a fat burner was overturned in July, is practising with the team and available for selection.The offence is expected to continue to flow through Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana, with the latter having scored Englands match winner at Slovakia to open World Cup qualifying earlier last weekend. Coutinho appeared as a reserve in both of Brazils qualifier wins.Theres also the on-going matter of Daniel Sturridges availability, having made an eight-minute cameo off the bench for the Three Lions last Saturday. He has played just 93 minutes over three matches for Liverpool thus far, and his two goals came in the League Cup rout of Burton Albion.As Liverpool try to get comfortable in their renovated dwellings -- they took just 32 points from 19 home matches last season -- the Foxes are trying to avoid consecutive league road defeats for the first time since losing at Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur on March 4 and 21, 2015, a span of 23 matches (13-7-3).Prior to the break, Leicester City broke their duck with a 2-1 victory over Swansea City on Aug. 27 as Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan scored on either side of halftime before conceding a late goal.Though goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel had to leave that victory in the second half with a groin injury, manager Claudio Ranieri expects his No. 1 to be available despite undergoing minor surgery for a sports hernia during the break.He is ready, Ranieri told the teams official website Thursday. I said it was a very little operation, it was good, the surgery was fantastic and he is ready to play.The area of concern for him and the Foxes, though, will be in the midfield and attack. New signing Nampalys Mendy and Jeffrey Schlupp will be held out of this match due to their respective injuries, meaning Demarai Gray likely will get the call in the midfield and Ranieri will choose between Shinji Okazaki and Ahmed Musa to partner up front with Vardy.Given Liverpools shakiness at the back, Musas pace combined with Vardys relentness high pressure could cause all sorts of issues for the Reds.This match also kicks off a busy stretch of schedule for Leicester City, who will play seven matches over the next 22 days as Ranieri will attempt to juggle his roster amid Champions League, League Cup and league matches.We are ready to play these seven matches ... It is good, it is exciting, we go from Premier League to Champions League to EFL Cup and its good, the manager said.One of those three aforementioned road losses came at Anfield last Boxing Day, with the since-departed Christian Benteke providing the winner just after the hour. Liverpool are unbeaten in five league matches (4-1-0) at home versus Leicester City. Cheap Ryan Getzlaf Jersey . During the athletes parade, the 23-strong Ukrainian team was represented by a lone flagbearer in an apparent protest at the presence of Russian troops in Ukraines Crimean peninsula. Clearance Ducks Jerseys . Despite the cost, effort and an improved steroid test, its possible that very few -- if any -- positives will be detected, Dr. Richard Budgett told The Associated Press in an interview. "We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said. . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. MANCHESTER, England -- Raheem Sterling offered further evidence of his improvement under Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola by scoring early and late goals in a 3-1 win over West Ham in the English Premier League on Sunday.Fernandinho scored the other goal for City, which has won its first three matches of the campaign to be level on points with title rivals Manchester United and Chelsea.A negative for Guardiolas side could be a second-half incident in which star striker Sergio Aguero appeared to swing an elbow at marker Winston Reid as they competed for a high ball in the second half. The referee was nearby and didnt give a foul, but if he says he didnt see it, Aguero could face a retrospective ban that would rule him out of Citys next game -- the Manchester derby.Guardiola said he didnt see the incident and gave short shrift to the possibility of a suspension for Aguero -- but was much happier to talk about Sterlings revival.The winger, who cost City 49 million pounds ($76 million) in the summer of 2015, lost his place in the team at the end of last season under former coach Manuel Pellegrini and endured a disappointing European Championship with England. He has looked a different player under Guardiola, rediscovering his confidence and dribbling ability.He now has two goals to his name, the first coming in the seventh minute to finish off one of Citys many flowing team moves in a dominant first-half display by the hosts.Fernanddinho added a second goal in the 18th minute with a powerful header from Kevin de Bruynes free kick. Ducks Jerseys Outlet. But it needed Sterlings injury-time goal -- when he rounded the goalkeeper and scored from an acute angle -- to see off a West Ham side that improved in the second half.Of course, we are pleased, Guardiola said of Sterling. He can play right, left, center. He is so dynamic. I am so happy he is playing good.It looked like being a procession for City after a one-sided first half but Michail Antonios 58th-minute header -- a replica of his winner against Bournemouth last weekend -- made it 2-1 and set up a tense finish at Etihad Stadium.Of course we can do better, Guardiola said. No doubt about that. But we are just one and a half, two months here.The defeat ended a difficult few days for West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, whose injury-hit team lost to Romanian side Astra Giurgiu on Thursday to miss out on Europa League qualification.Dimitri Payet, Aaron Cresswell and record signing Andre Ayew were among the key players missing for Bilic.You cant say City didnt deserve to win. Of course they did, he said.With so many players we are missing, I have to praise this team. We cant play much better than we did in the second half especially when you are missing six seven eight players and you play against them. ' ' '
