WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Rickard Rakell Ducks Jersey .Va. -- Drew Brees was patient and non-confrontational while fielding repeated questions about why he and the New Orleans Saints werent able to negotiate a contract extension before Thursdays opening training camp practice.If anything, the star quarterback became testier when the subject of rookie safetys interception came up.Standing nearby, one of Brees oldest teammates, right tackle Zach Strief, hardly seemed surprised.Look, hes a highly competitive and highly professional guy that is way more worried about the fact he threw an interception in seven-on-seven than he is about a contract right now, Strief said. Thats just how Drew is. ... Everything he does is like, unbelievably focused. Hes like a weirdo.And that, Strief said, is why the Saints shouldnt worry about Brees ability to compartmentalize the uncertainty that arises for any pro athlete in the last year of a contract.Around the NFL and in New Orleans in particular, many seem puzzled by the fact that the Saints havent been able to nail down a new, long-term deal with their franchise quarterback, who has passed for 48,555 yards and 348 touchdowns in 10 seasons with the club -- not to mention MVP honors in New Orleans only Super Bowl triumph.After all that, and the fact that the 37-year-old Brees has repeatedly said he wants to end his career in New Orleans, shouldnt an extension have been easier to hammer out?I would hope so, but I also know that sometimes these take time, Brees said, stressing that nothing is adversarial.Ive got a great relationship with (general manager) Mickey Loomis and have for my entire time here, Brees continued. Theres a process to this and its not an exact science.Brees has stated that once the regular season begins, he intends to cut off negotiations because he doesnt want his contract status to distract him from preparing for a game.He took the same approach in 2011, which was not without risk because an injury could have undermined his value going forward. Instead, Brees passed for what was then an NFL record 5,476 yards to go with 46 touchdowns, which ultimately earned him a five-year, $100 million contract that, in 2012, was the richest deal in the NFL.My mindset is the same whether Ive got a one-year deal or a five-year deal, Brees said. Each and every week, Ive got to go out and Ive got to prove it. Ive got to prove that I give us the best chance to win. Ive got to prove that Im a leader on the team thats going to get the best out of everybody around me and myself.Coach Sean Payton dismissed the notion that Brees contract status would overshadow the clubs preparations.That is something that cannot be the focus of what were doing, Payton said. Thats the one element that Im sure will take care of itself.Added Loomis, Lots of players play into the last year of their contract. It happened the last time with us. Its not our preference, but it happens. Nothing unusual here.Loomis added that Brees is paid like an elite QB and the Saints expect to do that.Strief said he cannot fathom Brees finishing his career elsewhere, but understands that when a contract is of the magnitude an elite player like Brees commands, the details can take longer to iron out.I could have signed my deal with Mickey in five minutes, Strief said. Its just not that type of situation with Brees.Brees has declined to get into specifics about sticking points in negotiations, saying he wants to keep that between his agent, Tom Condon, and Loomis, who also wont discuss details of negotiations.But Brees, who led the NFL in passing last season, seemed eager to discuss a possible divergence between what he called an old-school way of thinking about quarterback longevity and how he sees his own longevity in light of evolving science pertaining to training and nutrition.I dont see any reason why I cant play at the highest level for the next five years, minimum, Brees asserted.As the quarterback later wrapped up his interview session, discussion turned to second-round draft choice Vonn Bells interception of a deep pass Brees intended for Brandin Cooks during practice.Good for him, Brees said. That wont happen again.Game notes LT Terron Armstead and CB Keenan Lewis have opened training camp on the physically unable to perform list. The Saints may take them off the list at any time during preseason, at which point they would be permitted to return to practice. If they remain on the PUP list when preseason ends, they must sit out at least the first six weeks of the season.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Paul Kariya Jersey . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Ronnie Stanley wont have the luxury of watching from the sideline to learn how to play left tackle in the NFL.The Baltimore Ravens werent looking for an apprentice when they nabbed Stanley out of Notre Dame with the sixth overall pick in the 2016 draft. They expected the 6-foot-6, 320-pounder to start somewhere, perhaps at guard or right tackle.The recent release of Eugene Monroe, however, means Stanley now sits atop the depth chart at what is widely considered to be the most important position on the offense line.Stanleys priority will be protecting quarterback Joe Flacco, whos returning from a serious knee injury that forced him to miss the final six weeks of the 2015 season. The last thing the Ravens need is for Flacco to get struck from the blind side, and Stanley knows it.Its been going good, but definitely I feel a lot of pressure, the rookie said after practice Wednesday. Being put in such a high-valued position of blocking for a player like Joe Flacco, Im pretty much one of the five responsible for his well-being. But I think I can handle it.Fortunately for Stanley, he learned the finer points of the position within one of the most esteemed college football programs in the country.While playing with the Irish under head coach Brian Kelly and offensive line coach Harry Hiestand -- both of whom have NFL roots -- Stanley made 26 consecutive starts at left tackle over his final two seasons.I want to give a ton of credit to coach Hiestand, Stanley said. Hes done a tremendous job getting guys ready for what to expect.Two weeks into training camp, Stanley has handled every obstacle in his path -- from learning the playbook to fending off defensive ends and linebackers.Thats a premier position in the National Football League, and Ronnie continues to prrogress manning that job as a rookie, coach John Harbaugh said. John Gibson Jersey. Hes doing well. All positive so far. Up to this point, hes proven to be up to the challenge.Stanley is receiving on-the-job training from one of the best linemen in the game, five-time Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda, who is thus far impressed with what hes seen.He has the right mindset. He is a hard worker and keeps his head down, and I love a rookie like that, Yanda said. I love a rookie that stays quiet and does his job and just produces on the field. Just do what you do on the field. He is doing everything the right way, so we will see.Offensive coordinator Marc Trestman agreed.Hes had a very good start. Hes got an excellent demeanor, Trestman said. He carries himself with a quiet confidence. Hes doing good things over there, and hes just working to get better every day.Some rookies buy fancy cars and lavish homes after receiving their signing bonus. Stanley invested in items he hopes will make him a better player. Hes hired a masseuse, a nutritionist and a personal trainer.Im very blessed and fortunate to be able to afford those kinds of things, he said.Stanley was on his own when it came to performing in the annual rookie show. He was forced to wear a chicken suit while singing Ignition Remix by R Kelly for the veterans.Tough work, but he handled it like a pro.He sang his song. He got the guys singing along with him and having a great time, Harbaugh said. Its nice when you are a first-round pick, effectively kind of the leader of the rookie class, and make the statement: Well have some fun, and I can fit in.---AP NFL website: and 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 Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller says NFL players need to take a page from their NBA counterparts and be aware of their opponents safety on the playing field. Tyler Lockett Seahawks Jersey .Theyre playing hard, and the superstars are going to be superstars, but theyre always taking care of each other, Miller said this week. Theres never crazy-hard fouls that can lead to somebody getting hurt. That stuff happens in basketball, but its never intentional.In basketball, they take care of each other. Football is a more physical sport. But weve got to start doing that. Weve got to take care of each other to continue to make our game great.Miller made his comments in the wake of Harry Douglas low block on Broncos teammate Chris Harris Jr., which spurred Denvers Aqib Talib to retaliate against the Tennessee Titans wide receiver and fueled harsh words for Douglas from several Broncos players after the game.Miller said the proximity of Douglas block made it even more egregious. On the 6-yard run by the Titans Derrick Henry with just over three minutes left in the first half,?Harris was standing away from the pile in the middle of the field when Douglas dove at the cornerbacks right knee. Harris fell to the ground, clutching his right knee, but he was able to return for the second half.Chris, he wasnt even involved in the block. The play was completely on the other side, he said.Miller expounded on his comments in a telephone interview with the NBA, you see it all the time. You know, guys can go up for a huge dunk, and you see a guy coming in and trying to defend the shot or the dunk, and he eases up a little bit. He takes care of his opponent, he said.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Marshawn Lynch Womens Jersey . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Steve Largent Youth Jersey . -- Former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver was found dead at his Atlanta-area home Tuesday night, and a medical examiner said Wednesday that the ex-player committed suicide. . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. LONDON -- Taking the court as the No. 1-ranked player for the first time, Andy Murray got the job done.The Wimbledon champion was tested for much of his opening match at the ATP finals but still came out on top, playing in his home country and beating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-2 Monday at the O2 Arena.It was obviously nice to play in that stadium with the crowd like that. It obviously helps, Murray said. After a long, kind of, few months, its nice to know that Im going to be finishing the year playing in that sort of atmosphere.Murray took over at the top of the rankings last week, replacing Novak Djokovic. But the year-end No. 1 ranking is still up for grabs and could be decided on Sunday if both Murray and Djokovic reach the final.The prospect of attaining that, however, doesnt seem to be weighing too heavily on Murrays mind.The last few days, I havent thought about it too much, Murray said. It didnt change much for me.It certainly hasnt affected his ability to win matches. Murray has won a career-high eight titles this season, including a second Wimbledon title in July and a second straight Olympic gold medal in August. Since then, he has won titles in Beijing, Shanghai, Vienna and Paris.The latest victory on Monday didnt come so easy. Murray struggled to win his service games in the first set against Cilic, but still ended up saving all but one of the five break points he faced in the match. On the other side, he converted four of his five break points.When I need to step in, I didnt. When I need to wait a little bit longer, I wasnt waiting, said Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion. The hitting could have been better. Yeah, a little bit unfortunate to go 6-3, 6-2 down, where it felt it was much, much closer in the first sett. Seahawks Hats. Beginning of the second, I had couple chances as well.In the early match, Stan Wawrinka finally lost a match at the ATP finals to someone who hasnt been ranked No. 1 in the world. The U.S. Open champion, who has reached the semifinals of the season-ending tournament for the last three years, was beaten by Kei Nishikori 6-2, 6-3.It was not a great match compared to what I can do, thats for sure, said Wawrinka, a three-time Grand Slam champion. I dont think I find anything on the court today. I was a little bit slow on everything. I was hesitating a lot with my game, my movement.Wawrinka holds a 6-7 record at the tournament for the top eight players in the world, but his previous six losses were against Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal -- twice to each.Mondays loss doesnt mean Wawrinka is out of the tournament, but it hurts his chances of finishing the year as the No. 3-ranked player. Wawrinka, Nishikori and Milos Raonic all have a chance to end up one spot behind Murray and Djokovic.Im sure I still have something inside me to play some great tennis before the end of the year, so Im going to try everything for that in the next match, Wawrinka said. Im going to do what I need to do tomorrow to get ready for trying to play better in two days.Nishikori, currently ranked fifth, helped his own chances of reaching that third spot by breaking Wawrinka twice in each set while not allowing a single break point on his serve.Im not thinking too much about rankings, but would be nice if I could finish 4 or 3, Nishikori said. I see good chance to be there if I can play good this week.

ZADAR, Croatia -- Richard Gasquet faces teenager Borna Coric in the opening singles of the Davis Cup semifinal between injury-hit France and host Croatia on Friday. Jeremy Lauzon Bruins Jersey .Rising French star Lucas Pouille then takes on 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic at the Kresimir Cosic Hall in Zadar.France has the clear advantage in doubles, with Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert -- the top-ranked doubles players in the world -- up against Ivan Dodig and Marin Draganja.In reverse singles Sunday, Gasquet faces Cilic and Pouille -- a U.S. Open quarterfinalist last month -- takes on the 19-year-old Coric.France is without its two best players, U.S. Open semifinalist Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.Both are hampered by knee problems.Monfils pulled out on Wednesday while Tsonga was replaced by Gasquet last week.Gasquet has an 11-8 record in singles, while the inexperienced Pouille has played only one Davis Cup match -- beating Jiri Vesely in the 3-1 quarterfinal win against the Czech Republic.But the 22-year-old Pouille will be full of confidence after knocking out 14-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal in the fourth round of the U.S. Open, where he then lost to Monfils in the quarterfinals.For the Croats, Cilic is 19-9 overall in singles and Coric is 5-5.Croatia beat the United States 3-2 in the quarterfinals, with the versatile Cilic also lining up in doubles with Dodig against the Bryan brothers.France has won nine Davis Cup titles and lost eight finals, while Croatia won its only final 11 years ago away to Slovakia.France, which is captained by 1983 French Open champion Yannick Noah, is also trying to curb a losing streak.Since winning the title in 2001 against Australia, it has lost three finals -- in 2002, 2010, and 2014.The winner will play either defending champion Britain, led by three-time Grand Slam and two-time Olympic champion Andy Murray, or resurgent Juan Martin del Potros Argentina in the final.

PETERSBURG, Fla. CINCINNATI -- Bud Norris problems started even before his first pitch.The Dodgers right-hander needed some mound repairs while warming up to face the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night. The work didnt help.Joey Votto hit a three-run homer, relief pitcher Michael Lorenzen also hit a three-run shot, and Cincinnati beat Los Angeles 9-2 to snap a nine-game losing streak against the Dodgers.A big piece of clay came out, Norris said about the mound issue. They came out and fixed it. It was always there, but its not really an excuse. It didnt go my way.Norris (6-10) gave up six runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings in his first start since July 31 due to a back strain. He struck out three and walked four while lasting fewer than five innings for the 10th time in 17 starts this season.He never got comfortable, manager Dave Roberts said. He was working behind hitters. He settled in OK (after the first), but the fourth inning got away from him. He was a little frustrated with the grip of the baseball -- the humidity and moisture -- and a little bit with the strike zone.Tim Adleman pitched into and out of trouble in his first start since May 19 and added his first career hit and runs batted in as the Reds matched their season high with a fourth consecutive win and first against the Dodgers since Aug 13, 2015.Los Angeles hit four balls to the outfield wall, but three were caught for outs in Adlemans five scoreless innings. Adleman (2-1), who was sidelined with a strained left oblique, allowed five hits with two walks and three strikeouts. He also hit Joc Pederson twice with pitches.The Dodgers were 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position against Adleman, leaving runners on third four times. They finished 0 for 15 with runners in scoring position and left 14 runners on base.The Reds wasted no time pouncing on Norris as the first five batters reached base, four with hits, including Vottos blast over the center field wall for his 20th home run of the season.The Reds sent nine batters to the plate while knocking Norris out in their three-run foourth. Tuukka Rask Jersey. He walked Tucker Barnhart intentionally to get to Adleman with two outs and Eugenio Suarez on second. The pitcher crossed him up with a two-run double up the right-center field gap.Lorenzen, activated from the bereavement list before the game after returning following the death of his father, hit his first career home run in the seventh.MYSTERY GUESTLHP Julio Urias will start for the Dodgers in Sundays third game of the series. Urias is 3-2 with a 4.41 ERA in 12 overall appearances, including 10 starts, the last on Aug. 8 against Philadelphia in Los Angeles. Sundays starter previously had been listed as to be announced.RAREIFIED AIRVottos homer gives him seven 20-homer seasons with the Reds, tying him with Adam Dunn and George Foster for fifth on the Reds list of players with seasons of 20 or more home runs. His four RBI give him 700 in his career.HARD KNOCKSThe fans in the left field corner gave LF Tony Renda a standing ovation after he slammed into the wall on consecutive fly balls in the second inning. The ball was knocked loose for a double the first time, but he hung on to the second drive, earning the applause.TRAINING ROOMDodgers: LHP Rich Hill, on the disabled list since July 18 with a left middle finger blister, threw 75 pitches in a simulated game on Thursday at the Dodgers spring training facility. Roberts said Hill most likely will be activated next week.Reds: OF Adam Duvall missed his fourth consecutive start on Friday after fouling a ball off of his left instep on Monday.

NEW YORK -- Six batters into the game, the New York Mets were down five runs. Mark Duper Dolphins Jersey . By the time it was over, Logan Verrett had lost his spot in the rotation.Ryan Schimpf hit two of San Diegos four homers off Verrett and drove in six runs as the Padres beat the reeling Mets 8-6 on Friday night.Fellow rookie Jabari Blash and Christian Bethancourt also connected early for the Padres, who handed the defending NL champions their fourth straight defeat and sixth in seven games. New York (57-58) fell below .500 for the first time since April 17.Still, manager Terry Collins was pleased with the effort, by comparison. Thats how bad things have been going for the Mets lately.You saw a lot better energy tonight, a lot more passion, Collins said. There were some very good at-bats tonight. I thought the energy level was much better today.Beneath a dark sky with lightning flashing, the Padres produced some quick thunder against Verrett (3-8), who has been filling in for injured starter Matt Harvey.After the game, Collins said the Mets now plan to turn to Jon Niese in that slot.One day after getting swept at home by last-place Arizona, the Mets again failed to look like legitimate wild-card contenders. San Diego, which has alternated wins and losses since July 26, jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning -- including a grand slam by Schimpf.Travis Jankowski opened with a single, and Wil Myers and Yangervis Solarte walked to load the bases.After a popout to left field, Schimpf sent a 1-0 fastball just over the center-field wall for his first career slam.As Mets fans began to chant Rainout! Rainout! hoping for a reprieve, Blash hit an opposite-field home run into the visitors bullpen to make it 5-0.The threatening clouds passed, and inclement weather couldnt save New York.Travis dArnaud, who had three hits, got the Mets on the board in the second, lining a two-run homer to left off Padres starter Paul Clemens.We all showed that we never give up no matter how much we were down, dArnaud said.San Diego answered immediately in the third. Schimpf sent a two-run shot into the right-field upper deck, his 12th home run in 47 games. Two batters later, Bethancourt chased Verrett with a solo home run, putting the Padres up 8-2.The four homers allowed by Verrett, who gave up eight runs in 2 2/3 innings, were the most for a Mets starter since Bartolo Colon also served up four in April 2014.I put us in a hole 5-0 in the first inning and what did they do? They battled back, Verrett said. Thats the kind of guys we have on this team. Im proud as hell of the way they played today.Clemens (2-2) pitched five innings of three-run ball, and Brandon Maurer worked a flawless ninth for his fifth save.Jay Bruce had an RBI single in the fifth, and New York rallied in the sixth against San Diegos bullpen.After dArnaud led off with a single, Alejandro De Aza was hit in the neck by Buddy Baumanns 87 mph fastball. De Aza was OK, and Matt Reynolds followed with an RBI double. Ty Kelly had a run-scoring single to make it 8-5.They did not roll over at all, Padres manager Andy Green said. They fought and made it a heck of a baseball game.Left-hander Brad Hand struck out Curtis Granderson, and pinch-hitter Wilmer Flores grounded into a fielders choice that scored Reynolds.To come back and make it a game, Collins said, I was impressed with the way they went about it.A trio of Mets relievers combined for 6 1/3 perfect innings with eight strikeouts.LETS TRY THISNiese will likely take Verretts next turn in the rotation if he is physically up to it. Nieses left knee has been bothering him lately, according to Collins, but the left-hander seems to be feeling better.Were going to make a change in that spot, Collins said. Just making sure Jons knee is going to be OK. ... Looks like hes going to be fine.TRAINERS ROOMMets INF Jose Reyes (oblique) continued his rehab assignment with Class A Brooklyn, going 2 for 5 with a double, an RBI and two runs while playing seven innings at third base.UP NEXTPadres: RHP Jarred Cosart (0-1, 5.79 ERA) makes his third start for San Diego since being acquired from Miami.

To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. MIAMI -- Ordinarily, Jose Fernandez against Clayton Kershaw would figure to be quite a pitchers duel.Fernandez lived up to his end of the bargain.The Miami ace tied a career high with 14 strikeouts, overshadowing Kershaws return from injury and leading the Marlins to a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.Fernandez (14-8) gave up three hits and three walks in seven shutout innings. It was the fifth time hes struck out 14 in a game, and third this season.It seems like thats all I do lately. I cant pass 14, Fernandez said.Thats more than enough for the Marlins.Fernandez was simply dominant, improving to 4-0 all-time against the Dodgers and 28-2 at Marlins Park. There have been 12 games in the majors this season when a pitcher has struck out 14 or more, and no one else has more than one.His 102nd and last pitch -- which fanned Yasiel Puig -- hit 98 mph.He used his changeup more tonight and pitched inside more, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. He was good.Fernandez is up to 238 strikeouts this year, 29 more than any Marlins pitcher has ever compiled in a season.J.T. Realmuto homered and Christian Yelich had two hits for Miami, which improved to 5-0 against the NL West leaders this season. Yasmani Grandal hit his 25th homer in the ninth for the Dodgers, who tried to rally against Fernando Rodney before A.J. Ramos came in and closed it out for his career-best 33rd save -- his first in more than a month.Kershaw (11-3) had not started for the Dodgers since June 26 because of a mild disk herniation in his back. He threw 66 pitches, 46 for strikes, while allowing two runs and five hits over three innings.The three-time Cy Young Award winner and 2014 NL MVP struck out five, did not walk a batter and now has 150 strikeouts against nine free passes in 2016.Its not spring training for anybody else so its not for me, either, Kershaw said. Weve got to beat the Giants. Weve got to win this division. Bob Griese Youth Jersey. Im thankful for what the guys did while I was gone. They played unbelievable. Theyre still playing unbelievable. I want to be a part of that. I want to help that. Tonight I didnt really help. So I need to do that, pretty soon.Kershaw wasnt thrilled with his outing, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was.For Clayton to be back on the mound, I think thats a win for us, Roberts said. Fernandez was good, but the No. 1 thing was Clayton got out of this feeling pretty well. We didnt expect him to be in midseason form anyway.THE DONMattingly is the third skipper in the last half-century to start 5-0 against the Dodgers -- the team he managed from 2011-15. He joined Jack McKeon (with the Padres in 1988) and Sparky Anderson (with the Reds in 1970).CELEBRATING PERFECTIONIt was the 51st anniversary of the only Dodgers perfect game, Sandy Koufaxs 1-0 gem against the Chicago Cubs.

ZURICH -- North America became a stronger favorite to host an expanded World Cup in 2026 after FIFA essentially barred European countries from bidding on Friday. Nikolay Kulemin Jersey .The FIFA Council agreed that UEFA and Asian confederation members should not bid again so soon after Russia hosts the 2018 World Cup and Qatar has the 2022 tournament.That has changed the landscape (of the 2026 contest) a little bit, said U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati, a FIFA Council member.FIFA said Europe would be put on standby only if none of the received bids fulfill the strict technical and financial requirements.Thats unlikely if the United States bids as expected, either alone or with Canada and Mexico.FIFA favors co-hosting among regional neighbors, and a three-way bid could be more popular if the tournament grows to 40 or 48 teams.A decision will be made on whether to expand the tournament on Jan. 9-10 when the FIFA Council next meets in Zurich.FIFA has targeted 2020 for its member federations to choose the 2026 host.FIFA President Gianni Infantino, who was elected this year after promising voters a 40-team World Cup, would not declare North America as the most likely host region.It is still too early to say that, Infantino said. We hope we have many bidders and we can choose ... who the best bidder is.Still, the North American regional body CONCACAF has long been seen as the natural host for 2026 and its claim got stronger Friday. The United States was the last country in the region to stage the tournament in 1994.The answer is `Sure, it would be silly to say anything but that, Gulati said of a contest that could also include bids from Africa and South America.CONCACAF lost out when a hosting rotation system approved during Sepp Blatters presidency was abandoned before its scheduled turn in 2018 came around.Back then, FIFA preferred to block continents from two World Cup bidding contests after hosting, but when statutes were updated in recent reforms the rule said only one tournament had to be skipped.Gulati said the new clarity in bidding would encourage an entry from the United States.We now know some of the rules, said Gulati, FIFAs top American official. We will look at it. We have great relationships with Canada and Mexico. We also have a country with 320 million people that has hosted a World Cup and with a lot of terrific stadiums and great infrastructure.A U.S.-hosted World Cup would likely set attendance records -- in 1994 there were 3.59 million total fans and an average of 69,000 per match.Infantino said Friday that a bigger World Cup -- potentially of 48 teams and 80 matches with an opening playoff round -- would be for sporting reasons, not a financial or political decision.Still, he foresaw more revenue from FIFAs current $5 billion per tournament, which could help increase the funding he promised to FIFA members.Whatever additional costs there will be, will be largely outweighed by additional revenues, obviously. Which means we are in a comfortable position, Infantino said.Other decisions Friday:- FIFAs 2017 congress will be held in Manama, Bahrain -- the home city of FIFA vice president Sheik Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa of Bahrain -- on May 11. The original venue of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, pulled out citing problems with issuing visas to delegates.- The rebranded FIFA annual awards ceremony, formerly known as the Ballon dOr, will still be held in Zurich on Jan. 9. FIFA had explored a move to London.- The dates of CONCACAFs Gold Cup tournament in 2017 have been modified. It will kick off two days earlier, end four days earlier and be played July 7-26.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Dutch cyclist Annemiek van Vleuten suffered three small fractures to her spine and will remain hospitalized in intensive care after crashing Sunday during the womens Olympic road race. Willie Brown Jersey .Van Vleuten was leading on the fast, slippery descent of Vista Chinesa when she appeared to lock up her brakes on the final corner. She tumbled onto the road and her bike went flying, and she remained on the edge of the pavement as the rest of the field swept past.Teammate Anna van der Breggen went on to win the gold medal.The Dutch team said van Vleuten was conscious when she was loaded into an ambulance, and Chef de Mission Maurits Hendriks and team doctors said she was stable and speaking Sunday night.It was not known when she would be released.It was horrendous crash, road race silver medalist Emma Johansson of Sweden said. The peloton is so small and we all know each other very well. I just hope shes OK.The road course of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics caused havoc to the mens field on Saturday, too.Giro d Italia winner Vincenzo Nibali and Colombian climber Sergio Henao were leading on the same final descent when they crashed. Geraint Thomas of Britain, Richie Porte of Australia and Nelson Oliviera of Portugal were involved in three other hard wrecks.Nibalis coach, Davide Cassani, said that the Italian broke his collarbone in the fall. Porte broke his scapula, taking one of the time-trial favorites out of Wednesdays race.Its a difficult descent because you can go really fast but you also have to corner, van der Breggen said. After the mens race, I think we were all warned we needed to take care of the descent, and we did. Of course, if youre riding in front, maybe you take too much risk.The International Cycling Union defended the difficulty of the course, pointing to a test event and the numerous training opportunities that gave riders a chance to prepare for its twists and turns.Yesterday, I spoke with Vincenzo and he told me the descent was very technical, said Italian rider Elisa Longo Borghini, who took bronze on Sunday. I took care to be safe to avoid crashes. I had a very hard crash three years ago, so I know what that means. George Blanda Jersey . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games.

Colton McCarthy scored twice, Brayden Point had a goal and two assists, and Jack Rodewald also scored for the Warriors (15-35-9), who were 2 for 5 on the power play. . 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.Steve Howey will be picking his #One2Eleven on The Fantasy Football Club on Friday evening.

MILWAUKEE -- Braden Shipley, the Arizona Diamondbacks top prospect, will make his major league debut Monday when he takes the mound against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. Robert Ayers Authentic Jersey .The 15th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, Shipley started 19 games for Triple-A Reno this season, posting an 8-5 record and 3.70 ERA while striking out 77 and walking only 22 in 119 1/3 innings of work.Hes really pitched well in Reno, Arizona manager Chip Hale told When you talk to (Reno manager) Phil Nevin, theres been a couple ... farmhands have come through and really have controlled the offenses in Renos ballpark, and Bradens one of those guys. Were excited about it.In 81 career minor league appearances -- 80 starts -- Shipley is 24-27 with a 3.79 ERA.His pitches play in the big leagues, said Hale. His fastball, if its down, is very good. Hes got an above-average change-up and breaking ball. He has a chance to compete. We just have to work with him and realize there are going to be some butterflies tomorrow and have him enjoy it.Arizona has lost 17 of last 21 games but snapped a four-game losing streak Sunday with a 9-8 victory over the Reds in Cincinnati. The Diamondbacks hit four home runs in that contests, including a pair from Yasmany Tomas.Our guys did not quit, Hale said. Which they hadnt done that the last two days. They just were able to really hang in there in their at-bats. Obviously, Tomas with the two home runs were huge.Milwaukee will try to bounce back from a frustrating loss to the Cubs Sunday. The Brewers jumped out to an early 4-0 against Jon Lester but stranded 12 runners on the day and allowed five runs in the seventh inning to drop the series with their NL Central rivals.To get back on track, theyll turn to former Diamondback Chase Anderson, himself looking to get corrected. Anderson is 0-4 with a 9.13 ERA in his last six starts and has failed to work more than 4 1/3 innings in his last five outings.Anderson lasted just four innings his last time out, allowing three rubs in six hits and a pair of walks while striking out two in a 9-5 victory at Pittsburgh.I thought the second inning he got stuck a little bit, he got out of it and then the next two innings were pretty good, said manager Craig Counsell. He was up to 85, 86 pitches and going through the meat of their order again. Wed like to get him a little more efficient with his pitches, but I thought he rebounded from that second inning, which was important.Monday will mark Andersons first career start against Arizona, which selected him in the ninth round of the 2009 MLB Draft. He spent two seasons with the Diamondbacks, going 15-13 with a 4.18 ERA before being traded to Milwaukee in January along with Aaron Hill and prospect Isan Diaz for Jean Segura. Cameron Brate Womens Jersey . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Mike Evans Buccaneers Jersey .

"Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. Mike Moroney has expected a little more from lightly raced four-year-old But Its True and has opted to try a gear change at Pakenham.But Its True steps to 2000m for the first time in Saturdays benchmark-78 handicap and Moroney has taken blinkers off, which he said werent working.He has added a browband to the gelding to try to keep his head carriage lower under pressure.But Its True, by High Chaparral out of stakes winner Pennacchio, won a Warrnambool maiden by six lengths on debut in March and notched his second win at his third start the following month before a spell.He has had three starts this campaign, with his best results thirds in benchmark 70 races over 1400m and 1500m at Pakenham and Bendigo respectively.Hes been a shade disappointing, Moroney said.Im tinkering with his gear and Ive got an overhead browband on him to try to keep his head down a bit.Basically theres a theory, people say that a shadow roll (nose roll)) is there to keep their head down but its not. Mike Evans Jersey. .Its there to keep their head up because a shadow roll is to stop them from shying at shadows on the ground if they hold their head too low.They need it above their eye line.He just gets very head-high whenever the pressure is on, so were hoping that might help him.Moroneys other question mark is whether But Its True might want a soft track like he had at Warrnambool.Thats the other question mark Ive got over him, but hes a nice horse, Moroney said.I suppose hes lightly raced and done a pretty good job so far but I just thought he might have just taken that next step a little bit more because he looks terrific and looks stronger now.Moroney thought But Its True was going to be a miler but said he was starting to look like he wanted further.

WASHINGTON -- With John Wall sitting out the second game of a back-to-back on Saturday night, part of an effort to ease the All-Star point guards return from offseason surgery on each knee, the Washington Wizards will be counting on Bradley Beal to lead them.Beal just wants to make sure he doesnt try to do too much in Walls absence.What the Wizards and Beal would love to see is the same sort of go-to-the-basket style he displayed while scoring 20 of his 28 points after halftime Friday night, helping Washington give new coach Scott Brooks his first victory with the team, 95-92 over the Atlanta Hawks.The key Saturday at the Orlando Magic, Beal said, will be for him to not feel like Ive got to take over and do everything.Beal averaged only 14 points during Washingtons 0-3 start, never getting more than 15, and Brooks said before facing Atlanta he considered that his fault for not giving his young shooting guard enough opportunities.Hes going to have a breakout game sooner or later, Brooks said, nearly 2 hours before tipoff. Hopefully its tonight.How prescient.Before an announced crowd of only 14,663 -- nearly 5,000 fewer people than were at Wednesdays home opener against Toronto -- Beal made 13 of 14 free throws.He was attacking, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. Hes such a great shooter that you have to take that away. He may have just been more aggressive at getting to the rim.Atlanta cut the deficit to 95-92 and inbounded the ball after a timeout with 11.7 seconds left, but Kyle Korver missed a 3-point try with 3.6 seconds left with Markieff Morris in his face.Wall had 21 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, now just four assists shy of breaking Hall of Fame center Wes Unselds franchise career mark.But that will have to wait until at least Monday, when Washington hhosts the Houston Rockets. J.J. Watt Womens Jersey. Part of his rehab plan was to be real cognizant of his minutes, Brooks said. He might not play in the first few second games of back-to-back nights, the coach added, explaining: Thats all fluid.Brooks deflected a question about whether rookie Tomas Satoransky would start Saturday in Walls place, but did say, Theres a good chance.Wall said hell spend his day off doing some of the same rehab work he did during the offseason and joked about the game at Orlando: I might be the head coach.Its just something I have to do if I want to play a long career in this league, Wall said. Coach believes in me and my teammates understand what I have to go through. When Im out there, Im going to give 110 percent effort.TIP-INSHawks: Korver finished 1 for 9 from the field, including 1 for 6 on 3s. ... Atlanta has at least 10 steals in every game this season.Wizards: Walls streak of 16 consecutive games with at least 10 assists, dating to last season, ended. It was the longest active such run in the league.SLOW STARTAtlanta missed its first nine shots and shot only 29 percent from the field in the first half -- including just 2 of 15 on 3-point attempts. It trailed 48-35 at halftime. There will be times where the ball feels like soap, Paul Millsap said. There will be times when theres a lid on the basket.WHATS IN RESERVE?Atlantas reserves outscored Washingtons 33-8. The Wizards bench players wound up with the exact same number of points and personal fouls.UP NEXTHawks: Host the Houston Rockets on Saturday.Wizards: Travel to face Orlando on Saturday.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at 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 Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
