DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings and city officials on Wednesday announced a $650 million plan for a new arena development for the NHL team in Detroits downtown entertainment and sports district. Cheap Swingman Lakers Jerseys . Plans for an 18,000-seat arena were announced by the teams owners and local economic development officials. Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch has long said he wanted a replacement for the 32-year-old Joe Louis Arena. The new proposal -- essentially a framework of financing and development plans -- still needs to be approved by the City Council and a handful of state and local agencies, but its seen as an important first step. The Red Wings said there will be $367 million in private investment and $283 million in public funds in the complex, which would also include residential, retail and office space. Developers said the public money would come from existing economic development funds and requires no new taxes or funds from the cash-strapped city. Detroit, the largest city in the country under state financial oversight, is struggling with a long-term debt that emergency financial manager Kevyn Orr believes is more than $17 billion. "Today, this public-private partnership took a significant step forward in laying the groundwork for a major catalyst development, which will create approximately 8,300 jobs, stimulate economic activity and have a positive and lasting impact on our community," said Christopher Ilitch, son of Mike Ilitch and president and chief executive of Ilitch Holdings Inc., another family company. The citys Downtown Development Authority approved a "memorandum of understanding" with Olympia Development of Michigan, which is owned by Ilitch and his wife, and Wayne County, home to Detroit. Ilitch also owns the Detroit Tigers, and his family owns Little Caesars Pizza and downtown Detroits Fox Theatre. Under the plan, the authority would own the arena and event centre complex, while Olympia Development would have exclusive rights to use, manage and operate it, and hold naming rights. The arena is slated to be built near the Detroit Tigers Comerica Park and the Detroit Lions Ford Field, close to the intersection of Interstate 75 and Woodward Avenue. The proposed location is a couple miles away from the Red Wings current arena. Red Wings officials said it was too soon to estimate when construction would start or end. Michigan lawmakers in December approved legislation allowing property tax dollars collected by the Downtown Development Authority to be used for the development. The authority has been allowed for nearly two decades to finance economic stimulus projects by selling revenue bonds to be paid off with the tax money. It takes in about $12.8 million a year that otherwise would have gone into a fund for public schools statewide. Developers and supporters of that legislation said it will create thousands of new construction jobs and pump $1 billion into Michigans economy. Opponents counter that funding a private stadium with taxpayer dollars shouldnt be a priority, especially when that money was otherwise going to the School Aid Fund. "Were talking about jobs ... talking about enhancing the entertainment district. Its a win-win for everybody. The Ilitch family has been a very big supporter of Detroit and we agree that Joe Louis Arena is dated," Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano said, adding that county road funds may be used for some infrastructure work associated with the new stadium. Mayor Dave Bing said in a statement that the project will "continue to add momentum to the transformation of the city." Detroit is experiencing economic activity in its downtown and Midtown neighbourhoods, but other parts of city are grabbling with tens of thousands of abandoned or vacant homes and businesses. Orr, the citys state-appointed financial emergency manager, didnt return messages seeking comment Wednesday. Wholesale Lakers Jerseys .

NEW YORK -- J.R. Smith and Pablo Prigioni are staying in New York to help the Knicks build on their best season in nearly decades. The Sixth Man of the Year and the point guard from Argentina both agreed to multiyear deals Thursday, their agents confirmed. Smith helped shoot the Knicks into and then out of the playoffs, having the best season of his career but then struggling through the post-season. The product of nearby New Jersey wanted to stay and the Knicks needed to keep him. They worked out a deal that will pay him about $25 million over four years. Smith averaged 18.1 points during the regular season, second on the team behind Carmelo Anthony. But he momentarily lost his head and then his shot during the post-season, getting suspended a game for elbowing Jason Terry late in Game 3 of a first-round series against Boston and making only 29 per cent of his shots in the final eight playoff games. Still, it was a strong season for Smith, who showed much more maturity and better shot selection than during most of his career. The Knicks were unlikely to find anyone better with their spending limitations and made re-signing Smith a top priority. A former teammate of Anthonys in Denver who developed a good relationship with Knicks coach Mike Woodson, Smith posted a picture of himself in a Knicks jersey in front of the team logo on social media Thursday morning. Exact terms of the deals wont be known until July 10, after next seasons salary cap has been set and contracts can be signed. Prigioni finally came to the NBA this season at 35 after playing in Spain. He played limited minutes as a reserve most of the season but moved into the starting lineup down the stretch and the Knicks took off, going 16-2 with Prigioni among the first five. The point guard for Argentinas national team averaged 3.5 points in 78 games. He could make about $6 million over three years. The Knicks still are trying to hold onto another key player, Chris Copeland, from the team that went 54-28 and won the Knicks first Atlantic Division championship since 1994. UBET punters have jumped on Australia ahead of tonights World Cup Qualifier with the Socceroos attracting two-thirds of the money to firm from $2.50 into $2.25.Japan, meanwhile, has blown from $2.75 out to $3.20.Home crowd favourite Tim Cahill iss no stranger to finding the back of the net and he is the best supported to score the first goal at $7.dddddddddddd Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Its the first time that WWEs annual Survivor Series pay-per-view, now in its 30th year, returns to Canada since 1997. In that event, now dubbed the Montreal Screw Job, Vince McMahon conspired with Shawn Michaels and referee Earl Hebner to orchestrate a different ending to the match than the one outlined with the then-champion Bret Hart -- one of the most infamous moments in wrestling history.Hart refused to lose to Michaels in Canada, and he had planned on relinquishing the WWE title the next night on Raw before joining rival promotion WCW. The incident upset many wrestlers backstage, who then planned on boycotting Raw the following night. In the end, only one wrestler ended up not showing up for work.That man was?Mick Foley.Just before leaving his home in Long Island for this Sundays Survivor Series event in Toronto, Foley took a few moments to speak to ESPN about his experience that day and touch on a few other topics prior to this historic event.I was just upset because I was a friend of Bret Harts, and more importantly, hes a guy that I respect as a champion and a person, Foley said. So I walked out and didnt show up the next night for Raw. If I had a car I would have driven home, but I didnt, so I sat in the hotel room in Montreal.I found out that night that one really is the loneliest number when only one guy sits out, Foley continued. There was a bunch of guys talking about it, but looking around the hotel I was the only one that ended up sitting out, so I said, Ah, I guess it didnt happen.After taking a moment to consider his long-term prospects, some insight from his wife allowed Foley to justify walking back through those doors and continuing on with the WWE.My wife pointed out that there was something in my contract that said I would be breaching my contract and couldnt work anywhere in the world for the next five years if I just sat home, Foley recalled. I came back and I was embraced, and it was never held against me -- as a matter of fact, I think Mr. McMahon respected it.Foley didnt love how things had played out in Montreal, but by continuing to pursue his lifelong passion, he achieved some of his greatest personal successes. The following year at Survivor Series, Foleys career would get the push he had always dreamed of when he was put in the main event against?The Rock?for the WWE championship.My greatest personal Survivor Series moment was facing The Rock in 1998 and having Mr. McMahon turn on me, Foley said. That set into motion one of the best series of matches Ive ever had and some of the most important with The Rock. Not only did we have great matches, but then we became teamed up following the rivalry, so that was big.By the time all was said and done, Foley was a three-time champion and earned induction into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013. He returned to the WWE earlier this year when the company implemented a brand split, separating talent onto either Raw or Smackdown. As general manager, Foley has been one of the most vocal advocates for the womens revolution, and Raw has seen some history made by?Sasha Banks?and?Charlotte Flair?in the last several months. Not only did Raw see its first womens main event in 12 years, one of Raws?brand-exclusive pay-per-views featured the first-ever womens Hell in a Cell match, the first womens match to main event a pay-per-view event.Triple H?was one of the main proponents of womens wrestling, Foley said, acknowledging how much of a companywide initiative it has been. As soon as they hired Sara Amato, or Sara Del Rey as shes [been] known [on the independents] as a coach, it showed how serious the WWE was in developing this next generation of women talent. Ive just been a guy pointing, going, Look over there, theres something special happening. I hadnt seen Charlotte in years, and I hadnt even met the other women when I started watching them, but I knew there was something special there, and that people should take note of it -- and its only going to get better.Foley has been vocal on many topics of late, both within the WWE and outside of its scope on social media. No matter where you turn in the world, the fallout from the election of Donald Trump is being felt everywhere, by everyone, including Foley.While Foley has no personal interest in running for political office or cashing in on his celebrity to wield any kind of political power, he felt the need to make his opinion known prior to last weeks presidential election. The WWE Hall of Famer implored his millions of followers on Twitter and Facebook not to vote for Trump, who was standing about 15 feet away from me on stage, when both joined the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.I know our fan base is all over the political map, and you dont want to offend half your fan base, but I said [to myself] I have to be able to look into the mirror and know I tried to do something, Foley told ESPN. I think its a scary time.President-elect Trump wasnt my choice, but Im going to be like Dave Chappelle and Im going to give him a chance -- but I think there are people out there with legitimate worries.Earlier this week, Bovada, an online betting company, set odds for the 2020 presidential election, including Dwayne The Rock Johnson at 100-1 and Vince McMahon, WWEs chairman and CEO, at 500-1. Foley said he could see his old tag-team partner and rival in the oval office in four years, even if it wont be a reunion of the Rock n Sock Connection.He also added a few other WWE names to that list, and while he initially feigned some apprehension, Foley included his current partner in crime, Raws commissioner Stephanie McMahon, in that group.I see The Rock running in 2020 and being a two-term president, Foley said. I think he would be great, and Im joking when I say I think?Stephanie McMahon?wouldnt be a fine president of the United?States. I think shes got the leadership qualities. I see those two as potential candidates, and I see Kane as a congressional leader.?Kane?could win, and hes maybe?the most knowledgeable man Ive met in any field of business. DETROIT -- Mikael Backlund and the Calgary Flames got their six-game road trip started in the best way possible.Backlund scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:46 left in the third period to give Calgary a 3-2 victory over the slumping Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.This is huge, because were looking at these six games almost like a playoff series, said Flames defenseman Dougie Hamilton, who had three assists. We know we have to pick up some wins on this trip, and this is a good start.Garnet Hathaway got his first career goal and Matt Stajan also scored for Calgary. Chad Johnson stopped 21 shots.I thought this was a very even game, but we did a nice job of capitalizing on our chances, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said. We didnt lose any momentum coming out of the Chicago game, where we played very well in a loss.Tomas Tatar and Anthony Mantha scored for Detroit, which lost its fourth straight game. Jimmy Howard made 23 saves.I think we gave them their chances. I think from the start, a few turnovers in our own end, all of a sudden they end up spending a minute, minute and a half in our end instead of making a simple play and move the play out to the neutral zone, Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg said.Backlund broke a 2-all tie when he slammed Michael Froliks pass from the left circle past Howard and into the open side of the net for his second goal.We better pick ourselves up and we better come to work tomorrow to get better, Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. And we better put the work in that it takes to earn confidence come Wednesday (at Buffalo). Thats the bottom line. We better pick ourselves up in a hurry and focus on coming to win a hockey game on Wednesday.Mantha tied it 2-all 7:59 into the third with his first of the season. He put a snap shot under the crossbar on the short side after bringing the puck out from behind the net.Stajan gave the Flames a 2-1 lead at 2:31 of the third with his first goal of the season. He tipped in Hamilltons slap shot from the right point.ddddddddddddathaway tied it 1-all at 3:40 of the second. Hathaway, who was beside the net and battling with a Red Wings player, got the shaft of his stick on a high shot by Hamilton from the top of the right circle and deflected it into the empty side of the net.Thats an amazing feeling. I saw Fer (Micheal Ferland) get the puck to Dougie, so I went to the net, Hathaway said. It was an odd play, because Howard was still flailing around, so I wasnt sure if he had the puck or if it had gone in. Ill probably tell people that I sniped it -- that sounds a lot better. Weve still got five more road games, so it is big to get this one and get some momentum.Tatar gave Detroit a 1-0 lead 8:06 into the game. He blindly slid a puck toward the net from the high slot that beat Johnson. It was Tatars third goal and only his second in 14 games.Howard was forced to make a couple of saves in close after Red Wings giveaways deep in their zone.Detroit defenseman Alexey Marchenko left with an upper-body injury after taking a hit from Ferland with a little less than 5:30 left in the second period. Blashill said Marchenko will likely be out a little while and the team would have more information Monday.Game notes Detroit LW Thomas Vanek returned after missing 11 games with a hip injury. The Red Wings were 3-7-1 without Vanek and averaged under two goals per game. He had four goals and eight points in seven games. ... Calgary forward Johnny Gaudreau missed his second game after sustaining a broken finger on a slash by Minnesota C Eric Staal. Gaudreau will miss six to eight weeks. ... Red Wings C Darren Helm missed his second game after dislocating his shoulder.

STANFORD, Calif. -- Reid Travis scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half and Stanford made coach Jerod Haase a winner in his home debut with a 96-69 victory over Cal State Northridge on Tuesday night.Haase, who began his college playing career at Bay Area rival Cal, came to Stanford after four seasons as coach at Alabama-Birmingham. He replaced Johnny Dawkins, who got Stanford to the NCAA Tournament just once in eight seasons.It means everything to give him a win, Travis said, especially all the work weve put in, just building that relationship with him and the coaching staff.Haase called the experience awesome.Had a blast. The thing that continues to stand out in my mind is how much I enjoy coaching these guys, he said. Theyre so willing to learn and do what we ask of them.Travis missed the final 22 games of last season with a stress fracture in his leg but has come out of the blocks fast. He had career highs of 24 points and 17 rebounds in the Cardinals opening win over Harvard on Friday in Shanghai, China.Against CSUN, the 6-foot-8 junior made 6 of 9 shots from the field and converted 7 of 10 free throws, a big improvement from his 10-for-19 effort at the foul line vs. Harvard.Travis also showed the kind of hustle Haase was known for during his playing days at Cal and Kansas when he knocked over a half-dozen seats on the baseline while scrambling for a loose ball.Its definitely what he tries to instill to us, Travis said of the hustle. Toughness is one of our standards. When we get on the court, its full speed ahead.Marcus Sheffield added 17 points, Josh Sharma scored a career-high 15 and Dorian Pickens had 14 for Stanford (2-0).CSUN coach Reggie Theus said 20 turnovers were more than his team could overcome.We did a poor job of handling the double teams early in the game. That really got us off in the wrong direction, said Theus, adding that the Matadors defense was sporadic. A lot of times when things are not going well offensively, your defense suffers. Thats the mark of a team still trying to become a good team.Kendall Smith, who grew up an hour away from the Stanford campus, scored 17 points to lead CSUN (1-2).BIG PICTURECSUN: On the heels of an encouraging performance in a 102-87 loss at No. 16 UCLA -- a game that featured 14 lead changes -- the Matadors gave the ball away 20 times and were outscored 28-5 off turnovers.Stanford: The Cardinal made the long trek back from Shanghai, where it opened its season with an 80-70 win over Harvard, and showed little travel hangover. The Cardinal led by as many as 18 points in the first half and was up 31 points with less than 8 minutes left in the game.STAT OF THE NIGHT: Stanford was last in the Pac-12 last season in both 3-point percentage (.320) and 3-pointers made (.172) and was a quiet 1-for-6 from the arc against Harvard in its opener. But the Cardinal made eight of its first 12 shots from 3-point range and finished 9-for-16 against CSUN. Six different players made at least one, led by Sheffield, who was 3 for 4.UP NEXTCSUN returns home to play Saturday against Northern Illinois, which puts its 2-0 record on the line Wednesday against Idaho before heading to California.Stanford continues its three-game, weeklong home stand Thursday against Weber State, which dropped to 1-1 after a 69-68 loss at Pepperdine on Tuesday. Stanford better enjoy the home cooking while it can because it hits the road again for a Thanksgiving week tournament in Orlando, Florida beginning with a matchup vs. Miami on Nov. 24. With winter tours to Bangladesh and India on the horizon for England and lingering doubts over Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid, there has been much debate about the system for producing young spinners, and the introduction of a rule change to the toss in county cricket with a view to providing more spinner-friendly surfaces. Amid the gloom, however, there have been promising signs in the emergence of a clutch of young legspinners, with Josh Poysden of Warwickshire, and teenagers Mason Crane of Hampshire and Matt Parkinson of Lancashire all performing creditably in Division One, the latter two picking up five-fors. Parkinsons coach at Lancashire, Ashley Giles, describes his own development as a spinner and offers his thoughts on English crickets development of the next generation of young spinners. You started life as a seamer then converted to spin. How did that happen? I was about 15 when I started having back problems. I couldnt bowl seam, so ended up bowling spin in the nets one day. They came out all right, so I ended up dropping down from the 1st XI at Guildford CC and bowling them for the third team. I got 21 wickets in four weeks, went up to seconds as a spinner/batter, and when I was fully fit, I went back to seamers and fully converted at 18.You were recognised as a slightly unusual over-the-wicket bowler, a style that worked well enough to play 54 Tests. Did being a converted seamer help you develop your own, relatively unconventional, method? People talk about me as an over-the-wicket bowler, but I did do both. I think almost exactly half of my Test wickets were over and round. As a seamer I was very accurate and I think that was one of my strengths - having a really strong base: my bowling action - and I think I carried that into spin.What do you look for in teenage spinners? Good solid basics: a strong action thats repeatable under pressure. You see a lot of schoolboy spinners, bowling a schoolboy pace - its quite loopy and slow, with quite a jumpy action - but someone like Monty [Panesar] always had a really strong, powerful base to work from, and under pressure you need to fall back on that. Youve also got to spin it - thats your job. But your control is very important. You dont get away with bowling much shit, because you dont stay on. As a lone spinner its a pretty lonely world at times and theres a lot of burden on you to deliver. You can have four seamers in a team, but as soon as one [pitch] spins, everyones looking at you to get seven- or eight-for. So the other element is mental strength. You want guys whove got a bit about them, wholl deal with that, who are resilient, because its a tough world.Theres obviously a fairly long list of young spinners who suddenly get the yips and make the opposite conversion, to seamers. Is that something that can be assuaged by good management and captaincy? I dont understand the yips. I dont know where it comes from. I never suffered from it, although there were times when I didnt know where it was going. But I never bowled balls into the roof of the net or the side of the net, or double bouncers. But again, if youve got good basics to fall back on - I talk about schoolboy actions, generally very short strides and non-rhythmical run-up, and its all a bit jerky - theres less to go wrong.What about good captaincy during that transitional period - the bodys growing, trying to hit the same length might feel totally different because youre four inches taller all of a sudden? Shane Warnes advice for young spinners is, attack with the ball, defend with the field, which takes a bit of the pressure off the 16-year-old starlet to hit his length since he doesnt have to worry about injury to close catchers. Do you go along with that approach? I do. I think youre better off going out to in, rather than in to out. So start with a defensive field. Warnies spoken a lot about getting some overs under your belt, getting into the game. Try and bowl some dots, and later you can play with your field and build pressure that way. But for young spinners it is tough. Generally wickets in this country are more conducive to seam bowling, so they need time. Spinners cant really come on and bowl five-over spells, generally.If a young spinner is turning it square but bowling a couple of boundary balls an over, what do you do? Theyve got to find a way. Theres pressure on captains and coaches at whatever level to win games of cricket. When they play, spinners have just got to try and let go and concentrate on performing in the match. Even if you do spin it, youre not going to survive in first-class cricket bowling two four-balls an over, let alone international cricket.What about setting their own fields? Is that something youd encourage in young spinners? Have them be able to answer the question: how are you trying to get the guy out? Certainly regarding the setting of fields, its hugely important that spinners captain themselves. I know that Michael Vaughan had most confidence in me when I was confident. Hed go, Right, what do you want? And Id go, Bang, bang, bang rather than I dont know. What do you think? You set the field. I dont think thats very healthy. Its often a lone role [in England] and you have to be responsible for that part of the team. But another important aspect for the captain is doing it less by the textbook: one over before lunch; 30 overs with new ball, now lets get the spinner on.Get them into the game early. You can always bring them out of the game. But the responsibility works both ways. Spinners cant have it all their own way. Theyve still got to give the team and the captain some control.If there are seamers that keep a lid on the run rate then spinners economy rates become less significant than their strike rates. That was my role in [the Ashes in] 2005. It was to hold an end. We had the best seam attack in the world at the time.What about the next phase: 18 to 21, 22 years old? If youve given such a cricketer a three-year deal, how much of that is investing in the future and how much is investing in something now? Can you keep waiting for tangible returns until theyre 24, 25? I think you can. Spinners do develop late. Graeme Swann was a generational spinner - to take over 200 Test wickets, not many English spinners have done that. And he came into the side pretty late [28 years old]. I was signed at 19 and I started playing at 22, 23. But that period leading into that was very rocky. I was still finding my way, a way, and some sort of method and consistency in my action and performance. Second XI cricket can be challenging: three-day games, club grounds, generally seamer-friendly. When do you get on?I think one of the best things I did was go away in the winter. I spent four winters in South Africa. The first one was incredibly tough, 19 years old, almost got laughed at a little bit. I didnt perform very well, but for some reason they asked me back. The next year I didnt do very well with the ball but I averaged 100 with the bat. I started to stand on my own two feet a bit.The game nowadays is full of coaches, advice, support. The focus is psychological as well as physiological, and were accountable for what players do to a degree, but we also need to make the players accountable. We shouldnt be trying to produce clones. We can help and pass on advice, but its also up to them to create their own destiny.Theres always a temptation for coaches to justify their presence through intervening in a players development rather than standing back and letting them find their own destiny. Intervention is like a snipers rifle. It can be really useful, in that its pinpoint and direct. It gets the job done and helps in certain situations. It can be just plain lethal in the wrong hands. If you pick the wrong time with a player, it can take you weeks to come back from that.One of the ways Ive changed as a coach is that Ive tried to be less there [in the foreground]. One of things we say to players is, Find a way. Most of the stuff I do with bowlers and batters is about good basics: good balance, good alignment, good rhythm, direction of energy. You get that stuff going well, youve got a chance. I wouldnt dream of telling Matt Parkinson how to bowl a googly. Ive never bowled one. At 19, hes been doing it for years. I might tell him when to bowl a googly.What about putting young spinners in the team? How big a decision is that for you as a coach/selector? Obviously, they have to be ready. But whatever you think, theres no guarantee. You have to be fairly sure, because its a pretty harsh environment to chuck a young spinner into. But it comes back to their lone role. If they are a seamer, and there are two or three experienced guys around them, you can take more of a gamble.You put Parkinson in for his debut against Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott, so you must have been fairly confident. Absolutely. If theyre good enough, get em in. Age shouldnt be a barrier. I see no reason to hold people back just because theyre 18, 19 or whatever. Sometimes people surprise. For example, Liam Livingstone this year with the bat - we werent sure, because some of the stuff we saw we didnt like, and thought they might be indicators that he might not be ready. But actually, lifting him a level has transformed his game. Hes risen with that challenge. Theres no reason spinners cant do the same. What have you made of the pitches following the change in the toss rule, insofar as they are helping England producing spinners? The pitches have been better this year, certainly in the first part of the season, although that might change down the home stretch as teams chase results. So the games being longer has brought more spin into the game. At least thats how it appears. I think wickets in general have offered a bit more of late, although they dont all rag. Its my view that at the Test grounds, because of the drainage, more moisture has been pulled out from the block. That, with the toss, has helped spinners. Last year some wickets resembled shag-pile carpets.What about two-divisional cricket? How does that affect blooding youngsters, and spinners in particular? I think divisional cricket has been really good and made it very competitive. There are some really good sides in Division One. The problem were facing now is that its creating a bit of a must stay up culture at some of the big clubs, including ours. That can lead you away from a development and playing-young-players approach to quick-fix what can we get in?, whether that be overseas, Kolpaks, etc. Form is cyclical and you should be able to go back to come forward again. Thats part of the process were in. Parkinson, Haseeb Hameed, Saqib Mahmood… Livingstone is 21, [Alexander] Davies - to give those guys a good run at it, you need to be sure you can compete as well. Thats why Id favour going into a conference system, with playoffs at the end.So that there wasnt the threat of the trapdoor all the time? Yeah, its a threat to us coaches. The world of being a coach [in one job] for 20 years is gone.If you had a talented young spinner but the role was nailed down by a senior spinner, how would you handle him from the point of view of helping Englands overall production of spinners: advise him to go on loan? Yeah, could do. Theres also 2nd XI cricket, and some of our guys are linked to Minor Counties. Youve got to get overs uunder your belt, including practising.dddddddddddd Were in a pretty lucky position in that weve got Parky, Simon Kerrigan, then Stephen Parry and Adam Lilley, who are probably more one-day focused. Its quite challenging managing their expectations, particularly when you dont play on a lot of spinning wickets. Ultimately its down to them. We can offer them a form of security which is a longer contract, 12 months of the year, but with that theres no guarantee of playing. I do think the market will become much more open and movement will become much more free, certainly the loan market. If a gaps developing between the two divisions in red-ball cricket, I think it would be quite healthy to loan, the only issue being perception towards coaches. Arent they doing their jobs properly? Why arent their players performing?Do you think T20 is making it harder for young spinners these days, and its harder to switch between the two while still getting overs under your belt, while learning the game? I think itll be better next year, but I never had a problem with it [switching between formats]. I used to bowl a lot at the death in 40- or 50-over cricket. I think T20s given some spinners a new lease of life, because of the importance of the role in T20. It doesnt promote the repetition and honing of good skill, because those that do tend to go out of the park because batsmen know whats coming. There are guys who, going back to red ball from T20, have found it challenging.Would you then consider keeping a young spinner away from white-ball cricket until their early twenties, so they could get those basics? Thats all good in principle, but theres also winning games of cricket. Again, were a bit blessed with four really good operators. But that brings its own problems, because they all want to play everything. I think there are some spinners - and I dont mean this disrespectfully - whove had success in T20 because theyre not particularly consistent or accurate. In red-ball cricket, they get mashed, because people sit on you and wait. You even find that between T20 and 50-over cricket. Natural variation in T20s is useful because batsmen never know whats coming. They could decide to run at a ball that turns out to be your drag-down and end up getting stumped.There are two legspinners in county cricket - Will Beer at Sussex and Max Waller at Somerset - who are around 28 years old, have played 20 first-class matches between them and yet are still full-time cricketers. Clearly, T20 specialisation is a legitimate way for a young spinner to see their future. Whose choice would that path be: the young spinner or the county? It has to be theirs, ultimately. Those two bowlers might be examples of what I was talking about with natural variation. When you want men around the bat, in red-ball cricket, that isnt particularly helpful. So it might be a case that theyre not getting picked. But T20 has changed the game and its now a career choice - even for quick blokes, with someone like Tymal Mills, whos got a new lease of life just by bowling four overs a game, which is fantastic for him. But with pushing spinners into T20 specialisation, it comes back to seeing enough potential in someone [for red-ball cricket], players who might not be the finished article but are worth investing in.But then different clubs have different focuses. For me, the County Championship is the pinnacle and Id like the majority of my staff to have the ability to play this form of the game. If they cant play red-ball cricket then Im not sure Ive got the right man.What would you do with someone like Scott Borthwick, who Graeme Swann was really talking up as a bowler a few years ago, who played an Ashes Test, since when hes morphed into a batsman. Is it in the best interests of England that he plays his cricket up in Durham on a pitch that traditionally favours their strong seam attack? Shouldnt he be encouraged to go and play on wickets where he might bowl a bit more? I cant comment on someone elses career like that, because Im a director of cricket at an opposing club, but that all comes down to what Scott wants. He got a bit frustrated when [Ian] Blackwell was up there, but he bowled a fair bit against us when we were up there, and I thought his control was much better.What do you think of the National Performance Centre at Loughboroughs role in producing young spinners? I think Loughborough does a lot of good stuff. In the past its had some bad raps. They offer an incredible amount of support for the best players in the country, and even the levels below that - opportunities to train there, scholarships to go abroad. The work they do on innovation - things like spin counters, biomechanics, what the perfect spinner looks like around the world, replicating that in bowling machines - is really good. But the bottom line is, the raw material comes from us. They cant do anything unless we, and the club system below us, produce good raw materials. What they can do then is try to take that player to the next level.Would they ever knock on your door and make suggestions? Not to tell you how to use a spinner, but just whether they perceive guys as future international players and how they see their development. Absolutely. Suchy [Peter Such, ECB Lead Spin Coach] will talk to us and ask what we think is best for Matt Parkinson this winter. Theyll say: Is it going to play abroad? Is it spending more time with the programme [ECB Elite Player Pathway]? Is it going to Loughborough? Is it staying with you? That sort of support has come a really long way and I dont think we should be fearful of that intervention. Youve got to be careful at what stage that comes and at what level, because you dont want any player getting the wrong idea of where they are in the scheme of things. We have to be very careful not to raise their expectations too high too soon, or their perception of where they are. As long as its clear that this is a mechanism to help you go further in the game - because we believe you do have that potential - then great.You think about the spinning geniuses who learned on Indian Ocean beaches or rooftops in Lahore. Is there not a way for the ECB machinery, with its vast resources, to sort of back away and let spinners be for longer, let them be idiosyncratic, stand totally back from any coaching at all? I go back to my time at Warwickshire. I was lucky in that I joined just as Bob Woolmer was coach. Dermot Reeve was a really innovative and supportive captain. It was an environment where you were encouraged just to try things, provided youd worked hard at it in practice. I had a quick, swinging arm ball from my days as a seamer, so if it was swinging, Dermot often used to get me on early to see if I could hit the pads.I also bowled at the death in one-day cricket, which was quite new for a spinner, because I could hit the hole. Thats how I started bowling over the wicket. I had time to develop there, but its a harsh existence, bowling spin. You have to support them, nurture them, give them opportunities. But they have their end of the bargain too.When I was at Warwickshire the expectation wasnt that Id come into the side at 21. I had time. Nowadays the pressure for us as directors of cricket is that its all well and good, just sending them away, letting them go. I could say, Go off to Australia, Parky, go stand on your own two feet, but if he gets it wrong, or if he changes his action, or someone else tells him to change his action, or if he pisses it up the wall, hes not someone I can afford to say, Dont worry about it, because hes not playing yet. A lot of our big assets are now 19, 20, 21 years old. You become a little more protective, and all-year-round contracts have bred that as well. But if youre sure about the timing, let them go, whether it be to the subcontinent or Australia. I remember Matt Hayden went to the subcontinent for a winter to learn how to play spin, and Jesus, he could play. I remember playing against him the next year, a spinning wicket at Edgbaston, and he just kept sweeping the shit out of me. For a player to take that on rather than saying, Where shall I go: Sydney or Chennai? Most of them will say Sydney, because Bondis quite nice.Do counties have the same connections to Asia as potential clubs for the winter? We could. There are plenty of programmes now where we could pay or link. And thats something the ECB support: placing guys in different countries and picking up the cost of that, which is great. It is a question of balancing support against letting them grow. Sometimes they just go, click, and just get it. I got stuck in a rut playing for the Second team, then suddenly I got back in the first team and clicked. So its not a formula. And theres no way you can just manufacture spinners from nowhere.I guess its important to have a second string - batting at No. 8 in your case, or being a dynamic fielder - in that it can buy you time. Adil Rashid has stayed central to Yorkshires plans through some tough times because he also offered a lot with the bat. Does it show the value in nurturing spinners and sticking with them? Its a tricky one. Rash went right through the programmes. Hed been given all the support, all this information. The ECB said, Youve not realised your potential. Go away. There has to be a cut-off point. It has to be up to the individual. Its a combination of taking in all this information, thinking about things for himself, and now hes older and wiser. It does take time with spin. Clearly he had the potential. Its just trying to realise that. Some people never do.Ian Bell suggested to Moeen a couple of years ago that he needed to bowl a couple of miles quicker to challenge top international players. Do you feel that in his early career Rashid bowled it too slowly? And is this something that all spinners have to come to terms with now, with the bat technology and gym bunnies, that this has pushed the basic average speed up, of necessity? Yeah, I think you have to bowl a certain pace, against good players particularly. If you bowl too slow against the better players, theyll just use their feet and mince you. But that depends on your own development and how much intervention is needed. But its as much about energy on the ball as pace. That sounds a bit contradictory, but if theres energy on the ball it spins, it drops, it drifts. If you havent got masses of spin, both ways, then those are your variations. The bats have improved, but thats whats in front of you and you have to adapt. In India, with small boundaries for T20, spinners are often the best bowlers. The short forms have seen a resurgence in legspin, and that can maybe feed back into red-ball cricket.What qualities should a good international spinner have, and what traits would England be looking for in the next generation that comes through? Someone who can attack and hold at the same time. They need to have control. The spinner generally needs to bat a bit too. A good temperament. But where we are now has been the effect of not just one thing: its divisional cricket, green wickets, both of which have had a bit of a lag effect. Hopefully, with some of these young spinners that are around, were fighting back. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Lee Westwood believes he has proved his doubters wrong by playing well enough to justify his wildcard selection and secure a 10th consecutive Ryder Cup appearance. Cheap Marlins Jerseys .When his good friend and former Ryder Cup partner Darren Clarke was named captain in February 2015, it was easy to assume Westwood -- who was 41 at the time -- would be set for a role as vice-captain at Hazeltine.However, the former world No. 1 was determined to prove he deserved a place on the team and after slipping down the rankings, crucially finished second in the Thailand Golf Championship in December 2015 to end the year 50th in the world.That ensured Westwood a place in the Masters in April and he made the most of it by finishing second to final-round playing partner Danny Willett.I was determined that I was going to show some form and get on that team, said Westwood, who needs two more points at Hazeltine to equal the record held by Nick Faldo, from one fewer appearance.He added: I wasnt ready to write my game off just yet. I knew I was still capable of some good golf. It was nice to play well at the end of last year and actually get in the Masters from the result in Thailand, and obviously played great at the Masters and finished second with a chance to win.Any time anybody writes you off, its good motivation. You can either take it and be miserable or stick it back down their throat, which is pretty much the attitude that you have to have when you go to the Ryder Cup, as well.Westwood and Clarke played together eight times in the Ryder Cup, most memorably at The K Club in 2006 just weeks after the death of Clarkes first wife Heather.Its the most emotional of all the Ryder Cups I played in, theres no doubt about that, added Westwood, who partnered Clarke to victory over Phil Mickelson and Chris DiMarco in the opening fourballs.That made it tough in a way because we were both wild cards for that week. Its always a little bit tricky when youre a wild card, theres a little bit of extra pressure where you feel like you have to justify your pick, even though you dont. In the back of your mind, you want to play well and win some points for the team.That one at The K Club was very special, being on that first tee with Darren. Even though the emotion was for the wrong reason, it was still something Ill never forget. Marlins Jerseys China .

Although he played Real Madrid between 2010 and 2014, he still loves Barca and his fellow Argentine Massey.


"He is very good, every year, Clo is a very good player, but Messi from another planet."


"There is no language to describe Messi, and he always surprised us."

BARCELONA, Spain -- Unless Cristiano Ronaldo suddenly decides to add mercy to his list of virtues, the Real Madrid forward will have a good shot at scoring his 100th goal in European competition on Wednesday. Brenton Bersin Jersey .Ronaldo, who once aptly described himself as rich, handsome and a great player, is two goals short of that landmark before Madrid visits Legia Warsaw in the Champions League on Wednesday.The Portugal forward arrives primed for more goals after recovering his ruthless touch on Saturday, when he scored his 38th career hat trick in a 4-1 win at Alaves in the Spanish league.Ronaldo is the all-time leading scorer in the Champions League, with 95 of his European goals coming in the tournament he helped Madrid win for a record 11th time last season.But Barcelona rival Lionel Messi has closed the gap with Ronaldo in their never-ending scoring duel after netting seven goals to lead the Champions League this season. Thats compared to Ronaldos two so far. Messi has 90 Champions League goals -- after scoring the opener in Barcelonas 3-1 defeat against Manchester City on Tuesday -- and 93 in all UEFA competitions.Legia looks like easy pickings for Ronaldo. The Polish team has lost all three group matches and conceded a tournament-high 13 goals.And its players will face Madrid all alone at Wojska Polskiego Stadium, whose doors will be closed to the public by UEFA as a penalty for fans racist behavior and the fireworks thrown during a previous loss to Borussia Dortmund.Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said Legia has played well despite the poor results.We respect Legia. This is a good team, that can get you into trouble, Zidane said. They were not very lucky with results, but, as I said, they can be dangerous for opponents.Madrid, which beat Legia 5-1 in their first meeting without any goals from Ronaldo, are undefeated in 26 matches across all competitions dating back to last seasons quarterfinals. They have won their last five matches overall by the combined score of 24-5.Gareth Bale will also be eager to shine after signing a new contract with Madrid through 2022.The only worry for Madrid is the absence of injured center backs Pepe and Sergio Ramos.Madrid will qualify for the last 16 if it wins and Dortmund beats Sporting Lisbon in the other Group F match.Here are some others things to know about Wednesdays matches:---GROUP EGroup E is proving to be this seasons most competitive quartet.Only three points separate leader Monaco from last-placed CSKA Moscow before they meet in the Mediterranean principality. Monaco has been boosted this campaign by the arrival of Poland defender Kamil Glik, whose late goal earned a draw against Bayer Leverkusen.Tottenham hosts Leverkusen with both sides hoping for a win combined with a Monaco slip to move to the top of the group. Spurs havent won in five matches across all competitions without injured striker Harry Kane.---GROUP FDortmund, like Madrid, can advance with a win over Sporting Lisbon.Mario Goetze, who returned to Dortmund this season from Bayern Munich, has shown some flashes of his rich talent.

Lyon had better results in their recent games and they gave us a real test two weeks ago.Sevilla will be without midfielder Samir Nasri, who has been playing well for the Andalusian side on loan from Manchester City.Nasri scored Sevillas winner in a 1-0 victory in Zagreb.

NEW YORK -- Detroit coach Jeff Blashill liked the way his team bounced back after a tough loss against the defending champions the previous night and a difficult third period in which the Red Wings twice gave up the lead. Cheap Raptors Jerseys .Danny DeKeyser scored 1:02 into overtime to give Detroit a 4-3 victory over the New York Islanders on Sunday night.Mike Green scored twice and Henrik Zetterberg had a goal and an assist to help the Red Wings improve to 4-1-2 in their last seven games. Detroit was coming off 5-3 loss at Pittsburgh on Saturday in which the Penguins scored four times in the third period to rally.I was happy overall, Blashill said. Obviously you get leads and then you give them up, you dont want to do that. Theyre a good team, too, and theyre going to push as well. I thought our guys stayed with it even after the times we gave up those goals. We had real good bounce-back shifts, I thought. That was real important.Peter Mrazek stopped 32 shots to improve to 3-0-2 in his past five starts.On the winning goal, Thomas Tatar brought the puck into the offensive zone on the right side and sent a pass to DeKeyser in the middle. He fired it past Halak on the blocker side.I jumped up in the play, they had a guy changing and I beat him up the ice, DeKeyser said, and Tats threw it over to me and it went in. It was a good feeling.Anders Lee, Johnny Boychuk and Josh Bailey scored for New York, which had won a season-high three straight. Jaroslav Halak finished with 30 saves.It was a game we really needed the two (points) and take advantage of a team on a tough back-to-back, Islanders captain John Tavares said. Some good things, but still room for improvement and obviously we need the results.Detroits Frans Nielsen had an assist while facing his former team for the first time since leaving the Islanders for a six-year, $31.5 million deal with the Red Wings last summer. The 32-year-old Danish center, selected by the Islanders in the third round of the 2002 draft, had 119 goals and 230 assists over 10 seasons in New York.Zetterberg gave the Red Wings a 3-2 lead with 6:54 remaining, deflecting Jonathan Ericssons point shot past Halak on the goalies glove side for his sixth of the season. The veteran forward leads the Red Wings with 19 points.The Islanders tied it 2:33 after Zetterbergs goal. Dennis Seidenbergs shot was stopped by Mrazek, and as the puck rolled to the right side, Bailey and Tavares both whacked at it, with Bailey getting credit for the goal.The Islanders trailed 2-1 after two periods before Boychuk tied it 1:52 into the third. Casey Cizikas sent the puck toward the net, it rolled around the boards and DeKeyser tried to clear it. But the puck went to Boychuk, who fired it past Mrazek for his fourth of the season and second in three games.Green nearly had a third goal less than 5 minutes later but it was overturned on a challenge by Islanders coach Jack Capuano for goalie interference by Detroit center Luke Glendening.Green gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead with 5:20 left in the second period, taking a pass from Thomas Vanek and beating Halak in the top right corner. It was Greens sixth of the season and his first multi-goal game since his first career hat trick against Ottawa on Oct. 17.Green credited the win to his teams increased effort after the previous nights loss.We raised the bar a little bit and if we continue to do that, well be good, the veteran defenseman said. We played well. Its just a matter of keeping that compete level up.Lee got the Islanders on the scoreboard first 5:16 into the game on their first shot on goal as he took a centering pass from Cal Clutterbuck and wristed it through a couple of defenders and past Mrazek. It was Lees sixth of the season and fifth in the last six games.Green tied it with 7:07 remaining in the first on a one-timer off a pass from Nielsen.About 2 minutes later, Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic received 17 minutes of penalties for fighting Detroits Steve Ott. After Tavares was hit in the face by a high stick from the Red Wings Drew Miller, Ott came in and hit Tavares as he backed away and held his face. Hamonic took exception and fought Ott and received instigator, fighting and misconduct penalties.Game notes Nielsens assist was his ninth of the season and it gave him 15 points, second on the team behind Zetterberg. ... The Red Wings scratched D Ryan Sproul and LW Thomas Nosek. ... The teams play twice more, both at Detroit, on Feb. 3 and Feb. 21. ...
