Less will be more under the structures currently being proposed for the future of international cricket, which would for the first time place limits on how many matches and series could be scheduled by any one nation. Brett Favre Jersey .Speaking at the Cricket Australia AGM, which underlined the games financial reliance on bilateral tours, the chief executive James Sutherland outlined plans currently under discussion for league structures in ODIs and Twenty20 matches, plus a mooted conference format for Test matches.These structures, Sutherland said, would mean that the games financial powerhouses like Australia, India and England would play less international cricket than they presently do, while raising the volume of cricket played by other nations. This would be possible due to the increased context and meaning given to each match by league formats that gave players, fans, broadcasters and sponsors a clear idea why each match was being played.If you bring in some structure around international cricket and you create formats that are a league type arrangement you put limits around that, and any other cricket thats played outside of that is even more meaningless than other cricket that is played at the moment, Sutherland said. From that perspective it would put some really significant structure and limits around the amount of cricket thats played.With one day cricket and Twenty20 cricket we are contemplating a 13-team league where everyone plays each other, home and away over a three-match series over the course of a three-year period. That means you play six one day matches away, six at home every year. There doesnt seem any point playing any more than that because those are the matches that count.Similar structure for T20 cricket and I think thats something thatll be really beneficial for world cricket. Not just in terms of putting those limits in place, but also creating third party interest, making sure theres real relevance and context to every single match.The limited-overs league structures would mean each nation in the 13-team competition would play each other in one series, either home or away, over three years leading into each World Cup year, with the home team for that series then playing away in the next cycle to follow. Similarly, the conference structure for Tests would grow out of an ICC event-style draw, with seeded teams and others drawn to play them. A 12-team structure has the added bonus of bringing the likes of Ireland or Afghanistan into the fold.I think things need to change absolutely and we certainly believe that additional structure moving towards a Test Championship of one form or another, probably on some sort of a two-year cycle would be a real positive, Sutherland said. Were betwixt and between a little bit original suggestions about two divisions, then looking at perhaps a system where people play against each other and we used ranking points to decide who the champions are.But the one thats floating around at the moment is two conferences and perhaps matches being played inside of conferences with a little bit of cross-conference activity as well inside that two-year period and then having a champion team in each conference play off in a two-year cycle. I think theres some real merit in that, I dont think it significantly undermines some of the traditional series that are played and all in all very positive where every match would count, every series would count and I think itd be very keenly sought after, the right to play in that final. It also really exposes performances as well and the opportunity to bring a couple of countries into Test cricket would be a real positive as well.Sutherland admitted that in the current environment, it was impossible to apply equal priority to every international series, as shown by the recent tour of South Africa or the near convergence next year of the Test tour to India with the T20 home series against Sri Lanka. The IPL, of course, blocks out more than a month of the year for most nations.We make decisions from time to time in the best interests of a player, to make sure theyre available at the times that we see as the most important for them to be available, he said. Theres absolutely no doubt that at times we have to prioritise certain events, series, matches ahead of others.Certainly for the bowlers its just not possible for them to play all of the time. If you include IPL in there as well there are prioritisation discussions that need to be held all the time. they can be long-term planning discussions but they also need to be short-term planning according to how the player is dealing with injuries, niggles and also mental health.However Sutherland pushed the vital importance of making sure international cricket remained the top priority for the game ahead of domestic Twenty20, a point he has pressed home at successive ICC chief executives committee meetings in recent times. The example he can point to is the Big Bash League, devised to run alongside the international season and succeed without Australias best Test players.Im not sure my point of view is seen to be agreed to by everyone in international cricket, but our perspective here is that IPL is unique and then theres all the other domestic T20 competitions around the world. As far as Im concerned international cricket comes first, and is the absolute priority. Weve been true to that word in the way weve scheduled the BBL. People said the BBL couldnt be a success without Australian players playing in it.The facts of the matter are that its a great success, and its scheduled during the middle peak time of our Australian summer. International cricket needs to be the priority and you cannot schedule international cricket around domestic T20 competitions as far as Im concerned, and that will be one of the things we need to work through. Some countries may try to massage the program in such a way that they can do that, thats up to them. But first and foremost we need to be fully committed to international cricket for it to be sustainable.The proposed changes to the international game are due to be discussed in further detail at the next round of ICC meetings in February, and Sutherland said the hope was for a fully rejuvenated model to kick in beyond the 2019 World Cup in England.I would say certainly within five years, he said. Theres a little bit of a lead time because of preexisting contracts and things like that, but certainly the planning is very heavily focused on a line in the sand around the World Cup in 2019. We see that post-that theres an opportunity to roll into a new structure for the three formats. Tim Boyle Jersey . You can watch the game live on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Flyers had won seven of eight before dropping their last two outings on consecutive days over the weekend. Philadelphia was handed a 6-3 loss by the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday afternoon before dropping a 4-1 decision to the Rangers the following night in New York City. Blake Martinez Jersey . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. .

Nneka Ogwumike, who led the Los Angeles Sparks to the No. 2 seed in the WNBA playoffs, was named MVP for the 2016 season, the league announced Tuesday.Its the first MVP honor for the 6-foot-2 forward, who averaged a career-high 19.7 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.2 blocks this season, her fifth in the WNBA. She ranked third in the regular season in scoring and rebounding.As far as goals go, this honor has always been on a list I wrote down in the back of some journal years ago, Ogwumike said. Dreams dont sprout overnight, and triumph doesnt grow from trees. My 2016 season is a reflection of years of being a student of the game, hours of grueling practice, memories favorable and unfavorable, of great teammates and heartbreaking losses on the court.Ogwumike received 31 of 39 first-place votes and 362 points from a national panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. New Yorks Tina Charles received the other eight first-place votes and finished second with 267 points, followed by Minnesotas Maya Moore (197 points), Chicagos Elena Delle Donne (119 points) and Ogwumikes Sparks teammate Candace Parker (30 points). Players were awarded 10 points for a first-place vote, seven points for a second-place vote, five points for a third-place vote, three points for a fourth-place vote and one point for a fifth-place vote.Ogwumike, 26, shot a league-leading 66.5 percent from the field (244-of-367), the second-highest mark in league history. She also shot 16-for-25 from beyond the arc this year after being 7-for-34 in her first four WNBA seasons combined. JMon Moore Jersey. Ogwumikes true shooting percentage, which takes into account 2-pointers, 3-pointers and free throws, is 73.7. That ranks as the best in WNBA history, according to ESPN.coms Kevin Pelton, a metrics expert of both the NBA and WNBA. He points out that the only player who has finished at 70.0 or better in a season in which she played at least 500 minutes is Phoenixs Candice Dupree (70.0) in 2010.[Ogwumike] has had a season of extreme efficiency for the ages, and Nneka has worked extremely hard to expand her game, Sparks coach Brian Agler said. Not only has she been dominant at the offensive end, but also she has developed that defensive stopper mentality and is one of our key team leaders -- and will be for the WNBA in the future.The No. 1 overall draft pick and Rookie of the Year in 2012, Ogwumike set league records this season for consecutive field goals made (23) and most field goals in a game without a miss (12). She had 18 double-doubles in 33 appearances.Ogwumike is the third Sparks player to win MVP, joining teammate Candace Parker (2008, 13) and Lisa Leslie (2001, 04, 06).The Sparks (26-8) host Chicago on Wednesday in Game 1 of their WNBA semifinal series (ESPN2, 10 p.m. ET). Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
The Chicago Sky are locked in as the No. Parker Ehinger Jersey . 4 seed in the upcoming WNBA playoffs, but the Seattle Storm will be jockeying for position when the teams meet in the final game of the regular season on Sunday at KeyArena in Seattle.Chicago (18-15) is second in the Eastern Conference, 2 1/2 games behind the New York Liberty and 1 1/2 games ahead of the Atlanta Dream, which lost to the Minnesota Lynx on Saturday.The Sky, who will be without star Elena Delle Donne when they play Seattle, will enjoy a first-round bye as the fourth seed in the playoffs regardless of the outcome of Sundays game.Seattle (15-18) and the Phoenix Mercury are tied for third in the Western Conference. Seattle and Phoenix both have clinched playoff berths with one game remaining on their regular-season schedules. One will enter the playoffs as the No. 7 seed, the other as the No. 8 seed.Seattle won the season series against Phoenix and would hold the tiebreaker advantage if it finishes with identical records. Neither team can move ahead of the Indiana Fever for the sixth seed because the Fever won the season series against Seattle and Phoenix.Seattle has won six of nine games since the Olympic break. The Storm are coming off an 86-62 loss to Phoenix.

Meanwhile, there were huge victories for Sunderland and West Ham over fellow relegation rivals, leaving the battle to avoid the drop up for grabs with the bottom 11 teams separated by just six points. Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres scored second-half goals to seal a fourth straight victory for Chelsea, which climbed above Arsenal and Manchester City in the standings ahead of their games on Monday and Sunday respectively. Jourdan Lewis Jersey . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. .

Raheem Sterling will come up against some familiar faces in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday, when Manchester City clash with his former club Liverpool. Luke Willson Jersey . The England forward insisted his £49m move to the Etihad last summer was all about winning trophies and he has the opportunity to lift the first one available to him this weekend.However, his old club Liverpool will be standing in his way. Who will come out on top? We asked Soccer Saturday pundits Phil Thompson, Charlie Nicholas and Paul Merson for their view on the battle, how Sterling may impact the final and whether Liverpool will be able to nullify their former ace.Charlie Nicholas I just dont see him getting on the ball and beating people like he was two or three months ago. Charlie Nicholas When is the last time we talked about Raheem Sterling? I remember when he scored three against Bournemouth and it couldve been five but weve barely mentioned him since - other than giving away a penalty against Tottenham.This final should have his name all over it and Liverpool fans should be saying oh God, he worries me but I dont think theyll be overly concerned about him. Raheem Sterlings first game against Liverpool didnt go well - a 4-1 defeat at home I think the occasion could get to the lad. Hes still young and hes still learning but I just dont see him getting on the ball and beating people like he was two or three months ago. Hes edgy. I dont think hes quite sure what position hes meant to be in and what hes meant to do, just like three or four of the other City players at the moment.He should be thriving as soon as Yaya Toure or David Silva get the ball because hes got pace to burn, but I think the true crux of it is hes actually playing for his cup final place on Wednesday night against Dynamo Kiev.Paul Merson The Liverpool players will know what he can do from training and will be wary of him. Paul Merson I do feel sorry for him a bit as he didnt ask for that price tag and hes still a young kid.Sometimes I watch him and hes unbelievable, but he doesnt strike a ball properly. His goals always seem to bobble in, you never see him drill a ball into the corner. Sterling was a key player for Liverpool last season He will get better and the Liverpool players will know what he can do from training and will be wary of him. Phil Thompson Hes always a player that you fear and the occasion wont scare him. Phil Thompson I still think that he was badly advised and I wouldnt say that hes been a massive hit but hes still very young.Hes still got to work on his final ball but when hes on his game he can be very troublesome. Sterling has scored 10 goals across all competitions for Man City Hes always a player that you fear and the occasion wont scare him. The kid has a good footballing attitude, hes a tough little boy. Ive seen him at a younger age still turn up in big games. The real challenge is for him to be more consistent now.Watch the Capital One Cup final between Manchester City and Liverpool live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 4pm on Sunday Also See: Barnes and Goater Q&A Liverpools League Cup wins Golden Tate III Jersey .

SILVERSTONE, England -- Kimi Raikkonen will stay with Ferrari next year, the Italian team confirmed on Friday at the British Grand Prix.The announcement ends months of speculation that had seen several rival drivers linked with his seat alongside four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel.Ive always said I would not be here if I didnt enjoy it, or felt that I cant drive, or do it 100 percent, Raikkonen said.If I wasnt motivated, I wouldnt be here wasting my own time or the teams time. Ive always said, nearly 10 years ago, that my last team would be Ferrari and its still like that.What happens in the future I dont know. Tavon Wilson Jersey. Time will tell, but I usually dont make plans for a very long future.The Finn won the 2007 Formula One championship with Ferrari in his first stint with the team before rejoining from Lotus in 2014.He will be 37 in October and has yet to win a race since returning to Ferrari, having struggled against Fernando Alonso in 2014 and Vettel last year.But this year, he has shown improved form, and is level on points in the championship with Vettel after nine races. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
BRISTOL, Tenn. Alex Collins Jersey . -- The waterlogged Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway was called after just 48 of 500 laps were run because of rainstorms Saturday night.The race will resume Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.Officials finally called it after more than three hours of delays. The race started more than an hour late because of rain, lightning and hail near the track. After just 38 laps, the race was halted as rain, somewhat heavy at times, again hit the half-mile track.Things cleared after a delay of 1 hour, 24 minutes and drivers got back in their cars. But after 10 slow caution laps, the heavy rain returned and things ended for good.Kyle Busch had the lead, followed by Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney, Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth. Patrick Onwuasor Jersey . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. John Brown Jersey . Thats not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League teams bench for most of the 2012-13 season. .com) - Yankee Stadium is the home of the Bronx Bombers, but on Sunday afternoon it will open its gates to host the latest addition of the Hudson River Rivalry. It took Dolphins just 11.5 overs on the fourth morning to take the remaining three Warriors wickets and seal victory by an innings and 70 runs in East London. Fittingly, it was left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj who took the winning wicket to rack up career-best match figures of 13 for 157.The win was set up by a solid batting performance from the Dolphins on the first two days. After losing Imraan Khan on the first ball of the match, Dolphins rebounded strongly courtesy good returns from the rest of the top five. While No. 3 Daryn Smit top-scored with 121, he was well supported by Sarel Erwee (59), Vaughn van Jaarsveld (90) and Khaya Zondo (81). But, coming in at No. 9, it was Maharaj who made the difference between a decent first-innings total and a very good one. He struck 72 off 71, sharing a 108-run eighth-wicket partnership with Zondo, to help Dolphins up to a final score of 478.Then came the bowling heroics. In the first innings, Maharaj took 7 for 89 to spark a collapse from 132 for 1 to 230 all out. Edward Moore (62) and Colin Ackermann (68) scored fifties for the Warriors, but the next highest score was 29 by No. 9 Andrew Birch. Dolphins imposed the follow-on and there was no let-up in Warriors second innings. Maharaj collected 6 for 68 as the Warriors crumbled to 178 all out, handing the visitors an emphatic victory to start their season.Lions wrapped up a 10-wicket win against Cobras early on the third day in Johannesburg. Chasing a modest 160, Lions romped to victory, with Test opener Stephen Cook top-scoring with an unbeaten 97.On a spicy surface, Cobras, having been embroiled in off-field issues over the future of their coach Paul Adams, chose to bat and were quickly skittled for 102. None of their batsmen made more then 29 runs while wickets were shared between Lions four seamers. Debutant Wiaan Mulder, who will begin his final school examinations shortly, enjoyed the best returns with 3 for 10.Cobras then hit back by reducing Lions to 99 for 8. Dane Paterson and Vernon Philander made the early inroads but it was another youngster, former Under-19 World Cup squad member Jason Smith, who claimed the biggest haul - 4 for 24. Temba Bavuma, who made an unbeaten 76, with support from Nono Pongolo, ensured the Lions gained a 52-rrun first-innings advantage. Tony Jefferson Jersey. Cobras were in danger of another embarrassment when they tumbled to 17 for 4 and then 113 for 7, at the hands of Hardus Viljoen and Mulder. Smith showed his value with 95 while Dane Piedt provided some tail wagging and made 41, batting at No.9. Viljoen finished with 6 for 75 as Cobras managed to eke over 200 in their second dig.It was late on day two that Lions chase began and they looked to end the match quickly. They faced 18 overs and racked up 117 runs but bad light dragged the match into a third day. None of the Cobras bowlers enjoyed any success as Cook and Rasssie van der Dussen reached the target to give Lions maximum points: 15.08. Down the road at SuperSport Park, Mark Bouchers coaching career did not get off to the start he would have wanted. Titans suffered a four-wicket defeat at the hands of Nicky Bojes Knights, whose squad had been bolstered by a host of former Titans players.Marchant de Langes career-best 7 for 23 gave Knights just 171 to chase. Theunis de Bruyn then stayed unbeaten on 90 and took them to the target.De Lange did not do the early damage, though. That was down to Duanne Olivier and Mbulelo Budaza, who reduced Titans to 97 for 4 on the first morning. Among the early wickets was Dean Elgar, who was making a comeback after an ankle injury. He scored 33 off 71 balls, including five fours. Heinrich Klaasen and David Wiese shared a sixth-wicket stand of 142 to take Titans to a competitive 287, which was made to look even better when they bowled Knights out for 174.This meant Titans gained a first-innings lead of 113 runs, but then they slumped. In 14.2 overs on the second afternoon, de Lange and Olivier ran through them. Titans were bowled out for 57 with just three of their batsmen getting into double-figures. Knights closed the day on 41 for 1, with victory in sight.The third morning brought a thriller as Rowan Richards and Malusi Siboto kept the Knights in check. At 92 for 5, they still needed 79 runs and with a long tail, that was a tough ask. De Bruyn, though, held firm, and found support from Shadley van Schalkwyk, to steer his team home. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free ShippingCheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
Robbie Neilson says Hearts will have a big say in who wins the Scottish Premiership this season even if he doubts their own chances of taking the title. Cheap Throwback Jets Jerseys . The Tynecastle side face leaders Celtic on Saturday lunchtime, live on Sky Sports 2, and meet second-placed Aberdeen next Friday, with a trip to Inverness sandwiched in between.Victories against each of the top two would do a lot to thrust his team back into contention ahead of the final five games after the league splits. With Hearts 13 points off the top, however, Neilson knows it is asking a lot of his team to get back into the reckoning with eight games remaining.Head coach Neilson told Sky Sports News HQ: Its a big ask. Its three difficult games starting off at Parkhead on Saturday. Celtic are four points clear of Aberdeen at the top with a game in hand Weve got to focus on that one and then hopefully take care of that then look to ahead the next two.Were going to have a big say in the title race about where it goes. Its going to be very difficult for us to get anywhere near them. Aberdeen are the target and then Celtic are a little bit ahead of them as well. Were just going to try to win on Saturday then well take it from there.Weve drawn the last two games with Celtic so were starting to improve. Theyre the main team in Scotland, so its always difficult to beat them.But we feel were in a good place at the moment. Were confident to go to Parkhead and get a result. Hearts have drawn twice with Celtic this season Hearts will return to play after the international break looking to respond positively to their 3-0 home defeat against St Johnstone on March 19.The result followed four consecutive victories and Neilson is eager to return to that good form in Glasgow. Hearts lost their last game 3-0 at home to St Johnstone He added: It was a disappointing result. We lost two goals from set plays in the early stages of the game and it was difficult to get back in it.But weve just got to take that on the chin. Were in a good position in the league and we have to try to consolidate third position and aim higher if we can.

Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. NEW ORLEANS -- For Oakland coach Jack Del Rio, calling for a do-or-die, 2-point conversion was less a gamble than a philosophical declaration.Del Rio had no interest in a conservative point-after kick, and let his offense know it well before the decision had to be made. So when Derek Carr hit Seth Roberts for a 10-yard touchdown to cut New Orleans lead to a single point with 47 seconds left, kicker Sebastian Janikowski stood far from the action, helmet at his side, watching as Carr delivered a decisive fade pass to Michael Crabtree for a 35-34, season opening victory Sunday.Everyone knew about our strategy, said Del Rio, now in his second season with Oakland. I didnt really ask for any feedback there. I said, `When we score here, we are going to go for 2 and win it right here.His Raiders had already demonstrated considerable resolve just to get to that point.Oakland had to overcome a 14-point, second-half deficit and a 424-yard, four-touchdown performance by Drew Brees.The belief and trust that coach has in us gives us so much confidence, Carr said.Brees called the late 2-point try gutsy, but not surprising.Youll see that from time to time. You feel like you have the momentum, and lets dial it up and lets win the game, Brees said. I could see us doing that.FURIOUS FINISH: After the Raiders took their late lead, they still had to sweat out rookie kicker Wil Lutzs last-second field goal attempt from 61 yards, which narrowly missed wide left as the Superdome crowd briefly erupted before realizing the kick was no good.I thought it was good off my foot, Lutz said. The ball moved on me.Jalen Richard ran 75 yards for a touchdown on his first NFL carry and Amari Cooper caught Carrs pass for a 2-point conversion to briefly tie the game at 27 in the middle of the fourth quarter.But Brees marched New Orleans for another score, highlighted by a 57-yard completion that receiver Willie Snead fumbled and rookie wideout Michael Thomas recovered and advanced to the Oakland 2. That set up Travaris Cadets short touchdown catch, giving New Orleans a 34-27 lead.New Orleans nearly held on, but Saints linebacker Craig Robertson was flagged for interference on a fourth-down pass that sailed out of bounds.Im not going to start the season off complaining about the officials. We have to play better, Saints coach Sean Payton said. That was just one play.BIG NUMBERS: Brees eclipsed 400 yards passing for the 14th time in his career, tying Peyton Manning for the most such performances in NFL history. Henry Anderson Jersey. Snead finished with nine catches for 172 yards, including fourth-down, 1-yard TD catch in the first half.Carr finished with 319 yards and one touchdown passing against a Saints defense coached by his former Raiders head coach, Dennis Allen. The Raiders rushed for 167 yards, including touchdown runs of 6 yards by Latavius Murray and 2 yards by Jamize Olawale.RECORD TD: Brees touchdowns included a franchise-record 98-yarder to Brandin Cooks, who beat Sean Smith in single coverage and raced away from free safety Reggie Nelson. It was a career-long passing play for Brees as well.Brandin got a great release, I threw it up to him and he did the rest, Brees said. He looked like Usain Bolt running down the sideline there.Previously, Billy Joe Hobert and Eddie Kennison owned the Saints longest scoring play -- a 90-yard connection against Atlanta on Oct. 10, 1999. The Saints previous longest play from scrimmage was as 96-yard passing play from Billy Kilmer to Walter Roberts on Nov. 19, 1967, the franchises inaugural season.COOPED UP: Cooper, familiar to fans in the Gulf South from his college days at Alabama, elicited cheers of, Cooop! from an audible contingent of Raiders fans in the Superdome with a couple receptions for long gains. He finished with six catches for 137 yards.CAREER KICKOFF: Lutz made two of four field goal attempts -- missing twice from 50 or more yards -- in his NFL debut. Payton made the surprising move of cutting veteran incumbent kicker Kai Forbath in favor of Lutz this past week after the undrafted rookie out of Georgia State had been waived by Baltimore. Lutz hit his first field goal from 42 yards. He also handled kickoffs and hit a 20-yard field goal that was tipped.I like this guy a lot, Payton said of Lutz. Hes going to be kicking long after I am coaching here. Hes really talented. There are obviously going to be some bumps along the way.INJURIES: Raiders right tackle Menelik Watson left the game late in the first half with what team officials said was a groin pull.

A verdict of suicide has been ruled in the death of former Warwickshire cricketer Tom Allin who died on January 4. Aaron Neary Jersey .Allins body was found below the A39 River Torridge Bridge in Bideford, Devon. Devon and Cornwall police later found three suicide notes at his home written to family and friends.The police did not find any suspicious circumstances or third-party involvement in Allins death.Dr Elizabeth Earland, the senior coroner for Exeter and Greater Devon, recorded a conclusion of suicide.On the evidence I am in no doubt that Tom was the architect of his own demise and he clearly intended the consequences of what he did and there is no evidence of a third party involvement, she said.Allins death came months after he had suffered serious leg injuries in a car crash. The inquest heard he was recovering well physically but in early December he had told a nurse his mood was up and down and was advised to seek help.Jason Ratcliffe, PCA Assistant Chief Executive, said: We are aware of the tragic circumstances of Toms death and once again our thoughts are with Toms family and friends at this difficult time. Toms father Tony is also a PCA member from his playing days at Glamorgan and we will continue to support Tony and his wife Beverley in any way that we can.Allin was released from Warwickshire prior to the 2014 season. He had continued playing in the minor counties competition for Devon, with his last appearance coming in August against Shropshire.He was involved in primary school sports coaching in Barnstaple and Bideford and was head of cricket at Shebbear College as well as a coach at Bideford College. Wholesale Cleveland Browns Jerseys .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. Seth DeValve Jersey .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. SEOUL, South Korea -- Despite a continuing nuclear standoff and virtually no interactions between each other politically, some North and South Koreans are making an exception -- among their athletes at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.The countries interactions in Rio first grabbed international headlines when South Koreas 17-year-old gymnast Lee Eun-ju took a selfie with North Koreas Hong Un Jong earlier this month as they trained for competition. They interacted more a few days later when they shared the floor during preliminary competition, where Lee was eliminated and Hong advanced to the vault final.It is Lees first Olympics, while Hong was the first North Korean female gymnast to win gold, at the 2008 Beijing Games.IOC President Thomas Bach described the selfie as a great gesture.On Wednesday, North Korean shooter Kim Song Guk walked up to South Korean rival Jin Jongoh and shook his hand moments after Jin clinched his third straight Olympic gold in the mens 50-meter pistol.Kim, who took the bronze in the event, and Jin, exchanged a handshake again at the medal podium.If we (the two Koreas) become one, the medals we win will have bigger meaning. If we become unified in the future, the first place and third place (medals) would all belong to (one) Korea, Kim said.South Korean archery gold medalist Chang Hye-jin also said she developed friendly relations with North Korean archer Kang Un Ju, who she said called her eonni, a Korean word used when a woman refers to an elder sister or friend.I talked briefly with Un Ju the other day; she asked how I shoot so quickly, and also some stuff about equipment, Chang told South Korean reporters, days before her win in the womens individual event.Its not the first time athletes from the Koreas have had this type of interaction, even though their governments formally bar their ordinary citizens, divided along the worlds most heavily fortified border since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War, from exchanging phone calls, letters and emails.South Korea requires its citizens engaged in spontaneous interaction with North Koreans during foreign travels to submit reports about the meeting within a week. But Seoul doesnt ask for such reports for athletes at international sporting competitions like the Olympics because its too obvious that their purpose of participating in the events has nothing to do with meeting North Koreans.Pyongyangs state media hasnt reported about the interaction at Rio. But South Korean analysts say the North appears to be allowing its athleetes to behave more freely and interact with their South Korean counterparts in a bid to improve its external image as it grapples with multiple international sanctions imposed over its weapons programs. Ozzie Newsome Jersey. .It would be impossible for North Koreans to talk and act in that way without government direction and strict internal guidelines, said Koh Yu-hwan, a professor at Seouls Dongguk University. What we are seeing from North Korean athletes in Rio is a result of choreography.At the height of Cold War rivalry, sports were often another battlefield between the Koreas. North Korean medalists often ignored South Korean competitors who extended their hands for handshakes at podiums. North Korea also boycotted the 1986 Asian Games and the 1988 Olympics, both held in Seoul.After the end of Cold War, the divided Koreas occasionally used sports as a way to thaw relations. They formed a single table-tennis team for a world championship in Japan in 1991 and won the womens doubles title. That year, they also fielded one team for a world youth soccer championship and reached the quarterfinals.Athletes from the two Koreas marched together in the same uniform under the blue and white unification flag during the opening ceremonies of several major international sports events, including the 2000 and 2004 Olympics.Reconciliation efforts were later put on hold due to North Koreas nuclear ambitions. Earlier this year, North Korea conducted its fourth nuclear test and a prohibited long-range rocket launch, inviting tougher U.N. sanctions and worldwide condemnations. Seoul and Washington also announced last month they would place an advanced U.S. missile defense system in South Korea, and Pyongyang responded by warning of unspecified physical counteractions and firing several missiles into the sea.More weapons tests by North Korea are expected later this month when U.S. and South Korean troops begin their annual drills that Pyongyang calls an invasion rehearsal.There are no reports that officials of the two Koreas might use the Olympics as a chance to resume talks. Choe Ryong Hae, one of North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns close associates who had been in Rio to watch games, left Brazil on Wednesday without meeting any South Korean officials, according to South Korean media reports.---Follow Hyung-jin Kim at and Kim Tong-hyung at Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic WholCheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholeesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '

I felt a deeper sense of community back then, and our teams? success reinforced that.? Go to the Artists WebsiteBilly Baumann of Delicious Design League?For this poster I was most inspired by the Cubs? programs from the 1950s, which are great.

Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. ATLANTA -- Jay Bruce says the Reds have had an impressive first half, even if they are in third place in the NL Central. A big showing by the Reds offence provided the perfect confidence boost before the All-Star break. Bruce hit a two-run homer in Cincinnatis four-run third inning, Shin-Soo Choo also homered, and the Reds beat Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves 8-4 on Sunday. Bruce led the Reds with three hits. Brandon Phillips had a two-run double in the ninth, and Choo had two hits and scored three runs as the Reds split the four-game series. "Weve had a good first half," Bruce said. "Obviously, were not in first place and thats where we want to be, but weve played well, especially with the injuries weve had. To still be right here in the hunt, were in good shape right now. "Were looking forward to the second half." The Reds began the day five games behind St. Louis and Pittsburgh in the division. They gained a game on the Pirates, who lost to the Mets. The Cardinals played the Cubs on Sunday night. "It makes for a better All-Star break," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "We had a chance to really take three out of four or maybe even sweep them but well take what we got." Bruces homer was his first since he hit two on June 22. He had gone 18 games without one. "I really dont pay attention to that stuff," he said. "I started off July a little slow but slowly got heated up a little bit. Its a long month." Reds right-hander Logan Ondrusek (3-0) threw two scoreless innings as the second reliever behind Tony Cingrani, who lasted only four innings. Teheran (7-5) allowed five runs, seven hits and two walks in 5 1-3 innings. Andrelton Simmons and Dan Uggla hit homers for Atlanta. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was held out because of a jammed left thumb that will prevent him from playing in the All-Star game on Tuesday. The Braves had outfielders Jason Heyward, Justin Upton, B.J. Upton and Freeman sustain injuries in the series. The team placed B.J. Upton on the 15-day disabled list before the game with a right adductor muscle strain. "We lost a lot of key players but the guys that stepped in did a terrific job for us," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "You felt good that we had a chance. Even today. We hit the ball hard. "Anytime your back is up against it like we were and guys respond, you feel good about your club." Atlanta catcher Brian McCann was named to replace Freeman on the NL All-Star team. The Reds ledd 5-3 before scoring three times in the ninth off Anthony Varvaro. Ryane Clowe Jersey. Phillips double drove in Choo and Joey Votto, and Phillips scored on Todd Fraziers single. Control problems pushed up Cingranis pitch count. The rookie left-hander, who threw 96 pitches, allowed two runs -- one earned -- four hits and three walks in four innings. It matched his shortest start. Cingrani was frustrated early in the game by home plate umpire Sam Holbrooks strike zone. "They were calling them low, and Tony and (catcher) Devin (Mesoraco) thought they were strikes," Baker said. "Sometimes you get tested, especially when youre a rookie and youre not going to get a lot of the near-strikes. Sam was consistent and thats all you can ask the umpire to do." Cingrani gave up a run in the second but stranded three runners. Reed Johnson singled with two outs and scored on Gerald Lairds double. Cingrani loaded the bases with two walks, but ended the inning by snagging Jose Constanzas liner. Atlantas missed opportunity for a bigger inning set the stage for the Reds four-run third. Cingrani led off with a bunt single, and Choo also singled before Vottos double and Brandon Phillips groundout each drove in a run. Bruces 19th homer pushed the lead to 4-1. The Braves added an unearned run in the third. Simmons walked, moved to third on Chris Johnsons single and scored when Reds shortstop Zack Cozart caught a liner by Evan Gattis and then threw wildly to first base in an attempt for a double play. Choo led off the fifth with his 13th homer. Gattis was 0-for-4 in his return from the disabled list after playing only two games in his rehabilitation stint with Triple-A Gwinnett. Gattis was the fill-in starter for Freeman, who jammed his thumb Saturday night. Gattis had been out since June 18 because of a right oblique strain. Constanza made a running catch of Choos drive to left field in the first inning and made another leaping grab of a drive by Bruce in front of the wall in the ninth. Reds closer Aroldis Chapman gave up Simmons eighth homer in the ninth. NOTES: Cingrani also lasted only four innings on May 10 against Milwaukee. ... The Reds went 3-4 on their seven-game trip, splitting the four-game series with Atlanta. ... McCann is a seven-time All-Star. ... Gonzalez said doctors have determined Justin Upton sustained a severe cramp, instead of a strained left calf, in Fridays game. The Braves hope Justin Upton and Heyward (strained right hamstring) can return after the All-Star break without DL stints. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticCheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
Transfer Kurt Benkert has won the battle to be Virginias starting quarterback. DeAnthony Thomas Jersey .First-year head coach Bronco Mendenhall made the announcement Wednesday.Ive really been impressed with how hes moved the team. When I look at a quarterback, what I look first and foremost for is do they move the team into the end zone because points determine outcome, Mendenhall said. Kurt has been the one that I think has consistently and can continue to be consistent in terms of moving our team forward regardless of the type and caliber of opponent that we play.Hes a good decision maker, very strong arm, and he has natural leadership skills.A transfer from East Carolina, Benkert beat out incumbent Matt Johns and Connor Brewer, both fifth-year seniors, for the job. Johns started all 12 games last season and threw 20 touchdown passes, but also was intercepted 17 times.Mendenhall said Johns and Brewer will begin the season as co-backups.Benkert, who got married this summer, was to be the starter at East Carolina last season before an injury ended his year. He will be more than a year removed from surgery when the Cavaliers open on Sept. 3 against highly regarded Richmond of the Championship Subdivision.In practice, Benkert felt like the deciding factor to getting the starting nod was consistency and big play ability. Weve had a lot of big plays throughout camp and stretched the field a lot, so its definitely helped.Coach Ruffin McNeill was fired by ECU after last season, and when McNeill joined Mendenhalls staff, Benkert followed him to Virginia. He had already graduated, making him eligible to play right away, and said reuniting with McNeill was a benefit in the move.I feel really lucky to be able to see him every day. Hes a great person and hes always fun to be around and he always brings a lot of wisdom to the room, Benkert said of McNeill, the Cavaliers assistant head coach and defensive line coach.Mendenhall, who led BYU to 99 wins and 11 bowl games in as many seasons as coach, replaced Mike London as coach following the season. He said when he was hired that his preference is for a dual threat quarterback, and Benkert believes he is that kind of QB.Im not the fastest guy on the field by any means, but I definitely break tackles inside the pocket and outside the pocket whether its subtle movements or just extending plays on the run to throw the ball downfield, Benkert said. I feel like thats a big strength of mine.Benkert said the coaching staff has stressed the need for him to slide to prevent injury, but at a chiseled 231 pounds he said, If I need a first down or the game is on the line, Ill take over from there.That might out well for Virginia, which finished 4-8 and failed to qualify for a bowl game for the fifth consecutive season last year.---The APs college football page: Hank on Twitter: Harrison Butker Jersey .

The contract is a long-term decision and isnt influence by a race incident.Rosberg said it had not even occurred to him that the collision could impact his contract.I dont think about that, in that sense, he said. Im just very, very disappointed with losing the win because I had it in the bag, I would love to have won here, and to lose it in such a way on the last lap is unbelievably hard.Asked if he had talked to Hamilton after the race, Rosberg added: I wanted to discuss it before, but he didnt feel the need because I wanted to hear why he turned in. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys ChinaWholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '

They are tied with Oklahoma City atop of the Western Conference, their lone loss being to the Thunder last week.Los Angeles recorded wins over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday and rolled past the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday behind the performance of Blake Griffin, who scored 26 of his 28 points in the first half en route to a 116-92 romp.Its nice to have those easy looks go down, said Griffin, who shot 13-for-19 from the floor, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Our hands are everywhere right now, and thats a good sign. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
