Over the last 10 years, there have been few horses more popular than California Chrome, who became a national star after winning the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. Roger Staubach Youth Jersey . His achievements are impressive -- hes the highest-earning U.S.-based racehorse of all time -- and his recent victory over Dortmund in the San Diego Handicap was eye-catching and gritty.On Saturday, California Chrome (#1) will run in the $1-million TVG Pacific Classic at Del Mar, and hell be facing a deep field that might be the toughest to line up against him since the 2014 Breeders Cup Classic. Debating whether he could be vulnerable to defeat is a whole discussion in and of itself, but lets assume that youre a big fan of California Chrome and want to make money betting him to win. What is the best approach for making a big score?Since hes the 8-5 favorite on the morning line, a straight win bet wont pay very much - a $10 bet at 8-5 would return just $26. So lets instead focus on playing him on top of the trifecta and superfecta and try to identify the horses most likely to round out the top four.The most logical candidates are Beholder (#7), a three-time champion mare who won the Pacific Classic last year, and Dortmund (#8), a Grade 1 winner that was beaten just a half-length by California Chrome in the San Diego Handicap. In terms of accomplishments and speed figures, they are both capable of giving California Chrome a stiff challenge, but all three of these horses share similar running styles - if they get involved in a stiff duel during the race, it wouldnt be surprising if one falters and allows a late-runner to rally and finish in the trifecta.Hoppertunity (#2) is one such horse. Hes incredibly consistent and has finished in the superfecta in 19 of his 20 races. Back in March, he finished a solid third behind California Chrome in the Dubai World Cup and after a layoff, he was beaten just 2-? lengths when fourth in the Gold Cup at Santa Anita on June 25. However, he missed the Cougar II Handicap last month due to a temperature, and he was doubtful to be entered in the Pacific Classic as recently as a few days ago. Its also worth noting that he finished fourth in his previous two races at Del Mar, and for these reasons, I think he could be vulnerable.In contrast, Hard Aces (#4) enters the Pacific Classic in arguably the best form of his career, with runner-up efforts in the Santa Anita Handicap and Californian Stakes among his performances. Most recently, he showcased a complete change of running style to set a slow pace in the 12-furlong Cougar II Handicap and prevail by a half-length. I think he will relish the distance of the Pacific Classic, and a fast pace would also help his chances - I think he has a big chance to finish on the board.I would also include Dalmore (#9), a 3-year-old that gamely reeled in Danzing Candy to win the 8.5-furlong Affirmed Stakes last month by a half-length. This is a big step up in class, but he strikes me as an improving colt that will enjoy more distance and possibly out-finish many of his older rivals.Wagering Strategy A: Trifectas$5 trifecta: 1 with 7,8 with 7,8 ($10) $2 trifecta: 1 with 7,8 with 4,9 ($8) $2 trifecta: 1 with 4,9 with 4,7,8,9 ($12)Wagering Strategy B: Superfectas$2 superfecta: 1 with 7,8 with 7,8 with 2,4,9 ($12) $1 superfecta: 1 with 7,8 with 4,9 with 2,7,8 ($8) $0.50 superfecta: 1 with 4,9 with 4,7,8,9 with 2,4,7,8,9 ($9)Good luck, and enjoy the race!For more stories like this check out Americas Best Racing.

Russian runner Liliya Shobukhova has been ordered to repay almost £378,000 to the organisers of the London Marathon after being banned for doping. Jalyn Holmes Vikings Jersey .Shobukhova was paid the money in appearance fees and prize money for the races in 2010 -- which she won -- and 2011.She was subsequently banned for three years and two months after abnormalities were detected in her biological passport, although the ban was later reduced by seven months and ended last August.In addition, Shobukhovas competitive results from 2009 onward were annulled, which also included her three Chicago Marathon wins in 2009, 2010 and 2011.In a judgment on Tuesday, the British High Court ordered Shobukhova to repay the sum of £377,961.62 plus costs to London Marathon Events.The companys chief executive, Nick Bitel, said: The next step is to get the judgment enforced in Russia. It will be a long and difficult process, but we will pursue it as we are determined that cheats should not benefit. Any money we get back will be redistributed to the athletes that Shobukhova cheated out of their rightful dues.We are determined to make marathon running a safe haven from doping. We will continue to do everything we can to ensure cheats are caught and do not benefit from cheating.In addition to testing operated by the IAAF and national federations, the Abbott World Marathon Majors has set up one of the largest private testing pool of athletes in sport, with 150 competitors being tested out of competition a minimum of six times a year for their unique athlete biological passport.Although her official ban is over, Shobukhova is banned for life from competing in the London Marathon and any of the other Marathon Majors.

If experience counts in finals footy then Gold Coast may as well not turn up for Fridays elimination clash with Brisbane.The Titans head up the Pacific Motorway for their first finals appearance in six years with an accumulated 30 finals matches across their starting 13 with Chris McQueen the only premiership winner in their team.Brisbane, last years grand finalists, boast 124 finals across their starting lineup with Darius Boyd, Sam Thaiday, Corey Parker having all won premierships.Adam Blair has also tasted grand final success as a member of the 2009 Melbourne team which would later have their premiership win stripped for salary cap breaches.The Titans boast four players making their finals debut in Konrad Hurrell, Nene MacDonald, Ashley Taylor and Ryan James while only two of Brisbanes starting 13 - centres Tom Opacic and James Roberts - are new to finals football.Veteran backrower Thaiday doesnt however buy into the argument the Titans are lambs heading to a Suncorp Stadium slaughter.Yeah we made the grand final last year, weve got the 13 players ffrom that (game) playing again now but weve got some young guys in our team that dont have that semi-final experience, Thaiday told AAP.

Once again, the people who run the Olympics just cant say no to Vladimir Putin. Nike Sb Shoes Clearance .Not when he spends more than $50 billion to host a winter Olympics to show off a resurgent Russia. Not when he talks darkly about returning to the days of Olympic boycotts in 1980 and 1984.Certainly not when he suggests that doping officials of one powerful country -- can you guess which one? -- are behind efforts to ban Russia from the Rio Olympics.When Putin talks, Olympic officials listen. And thats the biggest reason why Russian athletes -- at least some of them -- will march in opening ceremonies less than two weeks from now in Brazil.With Russian prestige on the line, the executive board of the International Olympic Committee caved in. Instead of banning Russia from Rio for running a state-sanctioned doping operation, the IOC members decided instead Sunday to allow individual sports federations to decide which Russians can compete.Spineless, yes, but thats to be expected. No reason to let a little doping scandal get in the way of a cozy relationship that serves both sides so well.It was just a little more than two years ago that Putin was the face of a winter Olympics that he saw as far more than just a sporting event. He cheered Russian athletes in arenas and in the mountains, and celebrated with them as they added to the host countrys medal haul.Meanwhile, his agents were working late into the night at the Sochi doping lab, exchanging urine samples taken from the countrys athletes for clean ones in an elaborate scheme to escape detection.It paid off with 33 medals for Russia, 11 of them gold. The country led the medal standings, and Russian pride surged with every big win.That much of it was a scam wouldnt be uncovered until many months later. When it was, it was clear the scope of the cheating effort was so great that it couldnt have been pulled off without cooperation and approval from the highest levels of the Russian government.Yet Russian athletes will still compete in Rio. The official explanation for just why came from IOC President Thomas Bach, who said it would be unfair to ban all Russians when it has not been proven that all of them cheat.At the end of the day we have to be able to look in the eye of the individual athletes concerned by this decision, Bach said.The unofficial explanation was more telling.The IOC decision was to be expected. You cant behave improperly toward a power like Russia, said Gennady Alyoshin, a Russian Olympic Committee official, in comments to the Tass news agency.Apparently you cant, since the IOC -- for all its bluster about operating drug-free Olympics -- seems more worried about offending Russia than protecting clean athletes. The inexplicable decision to allow Russians to compete in Rio is a slap in the face to both clean athletes and those around the world who work hard to try and ensure the playing field is level.As an added insult, the IOC did Russias bidding by refusing to allow Yulia Stepanovas entry into the games as a neutral competitor, a decision a top U.S. Anti-Doping Agency official called incomprehensible. Stepanova is a runner who left Russia fearing for her safety after blowing the whistle on Russian doping and is considered a traitor by some in her home country.Its enough to make even the true believers wonder. Just what are these Olympic ideals we hear so much about anyway?Surely there are some Russian athletes who dont cheat and would be banned unfairly from the games. Hard to figure out who they are, though, with doping so widespread that Russian labs covered up more than 600 positive drug tests in 29 Olympic sports from 2011 until last August.So now you have swimmers who will have to wonder in Rio how they can beat a Russian in the next lane. You have boxers who worry about getting hit in the face by a Russian opponent who just may be on the latest doping cocktail.And you have incompetent Olympic leaders who talk grandly about cleaning up the games, then bow to Putin when given a chance to make the biggest statement ever about the evils of doping in sports.----Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Madrid is third in the Spanish league, six points behind leader Barcelona, going into Saturdays game against Valladolid. LEVERKUSEN, Germany -- Bayer Leverkusen finally scored from a penalty this season, although it needed help from the opposing goalkeeper, in a 3-0 victory over Monaco in the Champions League on Wednesday.Both teams were already assured of advancing to the Round of 16 before the final Group E matches and Monaco fielded a youthful side missing many regulars. Monaco finished on 11 points, one more than Leverkusen, which for the first time ended a group stage undefeated.Leverkusen has missed four penalties in the Bundesliga and three in the German Cup this season. It earned another when Abdou Diallo brought down Robbie Kruse late in Wednesdays match.Left back Wendell took the spot kick and drove the ball against the underside of the crosssbar. Wholesale Air Force 1. The ball hit the back of goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis and bounced into the net as an own goal in the 82nd.By then, Leverkusen was already in control of the game. Vladlen Yurchenko, making his comeback after a broken leg, drove in from about 25 meters (yards), finding the upper corner with a sublime shot in the 30th minute.Julian Brandt doubled the lead in the 48th after a pass from Hakan Calhanoglu.The closest Monaco came was when Corentin Jean hit the post in the 57th-Leverkusens defender Aleksandar Dragovic was unlucky not to score when his header was cleared off the line by De Sanctis.

Sania Mirza recalls her first meeting with Rohan Bopanna as a 14-year old. Chris Doleman Jersey . He smiles shyly as she remembers him as the up and coming 20-year-old that everyone was talking about at the nationals all those years ago. Now, both are wisened pros who can count themselves among the best doubles players in the world. And here they are, together for the first time, as a combination at an Olympic games, hoping this chemistry they share on and off the court translates into a cherished lifelong memory.For us it doesnt take a lot, we get on court and we do our stuff, Mirza explains. I have to do what I do best, which is to make the returns and set him up. He does what he does best, his serve is one of the best in the world. Hes solid, he volleys great and obviously his presence is great. We kind of just tune in and just do it, because we are so comfortable with each other. When I step on the court with Rohan I dont feel like I havent played with him for months, it just kind of happens.Despite their visible camaraderie, Mirza and Bopanna havent extended their partnership to the professional circuit. While Mirza has played the three Grand Slams this year with Croatias Ivan Dodig, Bopanna paired up with three different partners. They did however play with each other for the Indian Aces at the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) at the end of last season and Bopanna is convinced they can be a force in Rio, having ensured they start the competition well prepared.The main factor for us was to come together a few days earlier and prepare, he says. Thats what we have been doing. Weve got a few sessions of good practice in and I think thats going to be key. If we play to our potential, we have every shot of winning a medal here. But with the new rules, no ad scoring and a ten point tie breaker as the deciding set, every team out here has a great shot.The draw for the mixed doubles competition will be made on August 9 and after a stream of high profile pullouts, Bopanna & Mirza are likely to be seeded, giving them a headstart in the 16-team event. Two wins will ensure they are in the medal round but team captain Zeeshan Ali warns that each mixed doubles match at the Olympics presents a sterner challenge than even the Grand Slams, where the format is mostly played.If you are seeded you know you wont play at least the top four teams in the first round, Ali says. That is definitely a bit of a plus but every match is tough, some of the best singles players in the world are going to be playing in all the events, which is something you dont really see everyday. This is probably one of the toughest tournaments in the world.While the mixed doubles has been projected as Mirzas prime focus, these Games are also an opportunity for her to provide a taste of tennis elite stage to 22-year old Prarthana Thombare, who will partner her in the womens doubles. Thombare trains at Mirzas academy in Hyderabad and has had some encouraging results on the ITF circuit, where she has won as many as 17 doubles titles. At the training session with Mirza and Bopanna, Thombare was a willing participant in every drill, and is clearly eager to make a strong impression. Mirza is an enthusiastic mentor, cajoling Thombare every now and again as they raise the intensity of their session.I am very proud of her, Mirza says. Shes hitting the ball well, she plays much better than a girl whos 190 in the world, but more than anything she is so proud to be here and represent India. Hopefully, this will lead her to do bigger things and take that next step.Mirzas two previous Olympics experiences have been quite bitter with an injury forcing her out at Beijing in 2008 in tears and her forced, and ultimately futile, pairing with Leander Paes for the 2012 Games in London. Over the last couple of years though Mirza has constructed a spectacular CV that includes multiple Grand Slams and reaching the top of the tree in the world rankings. She hopes to leave Rio, a city she has never been to before, not just having taken in the sights but with another high point of her professional career.Every tournament we play, we try and win, she says when asked how the Olympics compare to a Grand Slam. It is not about as big, or whats more special. We are here to compete and it would mean the world to me and I am sure to Rohan if we could get a medal.While the mixed doubles draw is yet to be announced, Sania and Prarthana have been drawn against Chinese pair of Peng Shuai and Shuai Zhang in the womens doubles first round.

MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. New South Wales cricketers will be the first Australian female domestic athletes to go fully professional, via a landmark deal that will push the wages of some players beyond six figures.Cricket NSW unveiled a two-season deal with the sponsor LendLease that will ensure all members of the Breakers squad earn at least a minimum wage of A$35,000 a year. Combined with WBBL and Southern Stars payments, this will mean the likes of Ellyse Perry will now draw in a cricket salary in excess of $100,000.The announcement arrived ahead of negotiations for a new MOU between Australias cricketers and Cricket Australia, with womens pay and conditions set to be a key battleground. NSW officials hope the LendLease underwrite will be a trendsetter for players around the nation.This truly is a landmark moment, NSW chief executive Andrew Jones said. Cricket NSW has always been a leader in womens sport and today we are proud to announce another first. Every member of the Lendlease Breakers squad now has the opportunity to pursue a professional sporting career.I am confident that every state in Australia will now follow the lead of Cricket NSW by giving their female cricketeers the opportunity to earn a living wage. Alan Page Jersey. Cricket NSW is committed to growing and professionalising womens cricket by attracting and retaining the best athletes, providing world-class facilities, coaching and support staff, and offering all of our athletes a professional pathway.While the deal has been in the works for quite some time, it has grown in pertinence through recent advances in playing and payment opportunities for women in other sports such as AFL and netball. The new deal will again place cricket in the vanguard of womens sport.As the young Breakers batsman Ashleigh Gardner put it: Cricket has always been my passion. However, I never really thought that I would be able to play professionally. In the back of my mind I was always having to consider how I needed to juggle school work, studies, one day having a job and a family, with my training and matches.To know now that I dont need to worry about juggling all of this at once, and can really commit to my training and play professionally is incredible.

FLORHAM PARK, N. Fernandinho Manchester City Jersey .J. -- Muhammad Wilkerson wants to act more like the team leader that he and Jets coach Todd Bowles believe he is.The defensive end owned up to the mistakes he has made that led to his benching, along with Sheldon Richardson, for one quarter last Sunday. And, Wilkerson insists hell be better.This is a distraction, clearly, Wilkerson said Wednesday. I dont want to be a distraction. Thats not me. Its not my character. Thats not me as a teammate. Moving forward, it wont be an issue for me.Both Wilkerson and Richardson sat on the sideline for the first quarter of the Jets 27-23 loss at Miami . After the game, Bowles said it was simply a coachs decision, and refused to go into details. Neither player spoke to reporters in the locker room after the game.Reports emerged Monday that Wilkerson had either missed or been late to more than one team meeting, and was absent for a walkthrough the day before the Jets game against Baltimore on Oct. 23. Wilkerson didnt play in that game because of a sore foot. He was also late for a meeting before the Jets preseason game against the Giants and was benched for a quarter and fined.I have been late to meetings, Wilkerson said. I did miss the walkthrough prior to the Ravens game. Those actions are unacceptable. I definitely feel that, as a leader on this team, I definitely need to do better. I respect the coaches and everybody in this building. I take responsibility for my actions.Moving forward, it wont be an issue. As a leader on this team, I have to show better and do better. Thats something I will do.Wilkerson declined to divulge what he and Bowles spoke about when they met to discuss the situation. Despite the missteps by Wilkerson, Bowles still thinks the defensive end exhibits leadership qualities.His work ethic on the field, as far as getting guys going, Bowles said. Hes one of the guys on the field that people rally around and he can make big plays and make things happen. He can rally guys up in the locker room and out on the field and get going. Thats how I view him from a leadership standpoint.Wilkerson has struggled to match his production from last season, when he had a career-best 12 sacks. He spent the offseason recovering from a broken leg suffered in the season finale, but received a five-year, $86 million contract extension. He has 2 1/2 sacks this season, but insisted his lack of production isnt a result of his tardiness issues.That has nothing to do with my play, Wilkerson said. Whenever Im out there, Im going to do the best that I can.Richardson admitted to oversleeping by 20 minutes and missing the team meeting last Friday, which led to his benching.Im not a regular at missing meetings, Richardson said. Coach Bowles is a disciplinarian.

CHICAGO -- Jeff Samardzija finally got to make a playoff start at Wrigley Field, and it worked out really well for his former team.Samardzija lasted just two innings in the shortest start of his career and San Francisco was shut down by Chicagos bullpen in a 5-2 loss to the Cubs on Saturday night, putting the Giants on the brink of elimination two games into their best-of-five NL Division Series.Just cant put your team in that much of a hole early in the game, especially against a good staff like they have over there, Samardzija said. Like to have that one back, for sure, that ones on me.Gregor Blanco hit an RBI double and Brandon Belt added a sacrifice fly in San Franciscos two-run third, but that was it for the Giants in another sluggish performance at the plate. They have scored in just two of their 27 innings in this years postseason, winning 3-0 on Conor Gillaspies ninth-inning homer in the wild-card game against the Mets and losing 1-0 in the NLDS opener Friday night.San Francisco won the World Series in 2010, `12 and `14, and its playoff win against New York on Wednesday was reminiscent of its even-year magic during those title runs. But the Giants lackluster stay in Chicago put them in a big hole against the loaded Cubs, who led the majors with 103 wins this year.You know you never want to get down 0-2 but at this point we just have to win three in a row, second baseman Joe Panik said. Weve done it before and just got to do it again.The biggest positive for the Giants: Madison Bumgarner is lined up for Game 3 on Monday night in San Francisco. The big left-hander tossed a four-hitter in the wild-card win and is 6-1 with a microscopic 0.79 ERA in his last nine playoff appearances.San Francisco also can draw from its 2012 title run, when it dropped the first two games of the division series against Cincinnati and won three in a row to advance. The Giants then fell behind 3-1 in the NLCS against St. Louis and stayed alive again.It gives you a lot of confidence, the fact that youve been in this position before, manager Bruce Bochy said.Bochys club was looking to rebound in Game 2 against the Cubs after it managed just six hits against Jon Lester and Aroldis Chapman in the series opener. But the Giantss trailed from the very beginning in Samardzijas second career start at Wrigley as a visitor. Kyle Walker Manchester City Jersey. amardzija was drafted by the Cubs in 2006 and spent his first 6 1/2 seasons with the team before he was traded to Oakland in the 2014 deal that brought shortstop Addison Russell to the Cubs. His only previous playoff appearance was a relief outing for Chicago against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2008 Division Series.The right-hander, a native of nearby Merrillville, Indiana, who played baseball and football at Notre Dame, fell behind in the first when Dexter Fowler hit a leadoff double and scored on Ben Zobrists two-out RBI single.The Cubs added three more in the second. The big blow was pitcher Kyle Hendricks two-run single on a flare to center.Samardzija made some mistakes and the broken-bat hit to the pitcher, that one hurt a little bit, catcher Buster Posey said.Bochy hit for Samardzija in the third. The righty allowed six hits and walked one, throwing 33 of his 47 pitches for strikes.Obviously, theres some pitches you like to have back, he said. I dont think the location was necessarily all that bad. It was just, for me, it was falling behind in the count and then not being able to put guys away.Hendricks departed in the fourth with a bruised right forearm after he was struck by Angel Pagans line drive with two out. But the Giants managed just two hits against five Cubs relievers.Travis Wood, who replaced Hendricks, got four outs and homered against George Kontos in the fourth. Chapman pitched a perfect ninth for his second save of the series.The Giants finished with six hits. Bochy even tried Bumgarner as a pinch hitter in the fifth -- third baseman Kris Bryant bobbled Bumgarners grounder for an error, then threw the ball away to let Bumgarner reach second base with one out. He was stranded there.Playoff baseball, very rarely do you play 10-8 games. Its all low-scoring, Panik said. Obviously theres things we can do better as an offense, but this is the type of scoring that you expect in a postseason game.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap ' ' ' t 28, Kerber is the oldest woman to reach the No. 1 ranking and is in the best form of her life, winning the Australian Open and US Open titles this year.

SINGAPORE -- The comparisons with Serena Williams have always been more of a disservice than an inspiration to Madison Keys. She might be the anointed flag-bearer for the next generation of American female tennis stars, but Keys has never really liked the burden of trying to match Williams or appease an impatient public wanting more. And why should she? Williams has 22 Grand Slam singles titles; Keys has none. At least for now.Unlike Williams, who had completed her own career Grand Slam by the time she was old enough to buy booze legally, Keys is still a work in progress at 21. But that doesnt mean shes not doing great things.But those great things will have to wait, at least for now. On Thursday night in Singapore, world No. 1 Angelique Kerber?presented Keys a tennis master class. Although Kerber had already qualified for the knockout phase and knew Keys would join her in the last four if the American won at least one set, Kerber played pristine tennis once again, winning 6-3, 6-3.I let nerves get the best of me, and I think that happens to everyone, Keys said afterward. Just something that I need to work on. Its not a bad thing. It happens to a lot of people. People figure it out. Obviously Im not the best at it, at 21. But hopefully there is a couple more years to figure that out.Keys is still on a sharp learning curve and remains her own harshest critic. Her biggest takeaway from Singapore was not what went right but went wrong. She knows she has a rocket of a serve and booming groundstrokes that should have been ideally suited to the indoor hard courts where the finals are played, but she also knows she made too many mistakes to be able to rattle her more seasoned opponents.I think one big thing for me that I need to work on is being able to separate my feelings and emotions from my matches, Keys said. I think when its a high-stress situation, my tennis definitely takes a big dip. Thats something Im gonna have to work on.This is obviously my first experience in a setting like this.Ranked seventh in the world, she was the youngest player to qualify for the WTA Finals in Singapore, reserved for the worlds elite top eight. She didnt make the semifinals after losing to Kerber and the fourth-ranked Simona Halep but did manage a win against the vastly more experienced Dominika Cibulkova -- no small feat. Indianapolis Colts Jerseys. Overall, its an amazing experience to be here, she told reporters in Singapore. I worked really hard to get here, so Im proud of myself for that.Keys earned her place in the WTA Finals the old-fashioned way: slogging it out all season long and accruing the points through consistency rather than with one big breakthrough. She did capture her second WTA Tour title, at the Aegon Classic in Birmingham, England, in June, and made the final at the Italian Open and Canadian Open. But the bulk of her points came from reaching the round of 16 at all four Grand Slam tournaments.Ive gotten a lot better at figuring matches out when I wasnt necessarily playing well, Keys said. That was a big goal of mine. Thats something that I can use all of next year and years to come. I think the biggest thing is just wanting to get better every single day and never really being completely happy. I think pushing myself like that has really helped me get to where I am.If Keys requires some fresh inspiration, she needs look no further than Kerber. At 28, Kerber is the oldest woman to reach the No. 1 ranking and is in the best form of her life, winning the Australian Open and US Open titles this year. A perennial underachiever for most of her career, the German is now a model of calmness and efficiency.Before this week, Kerber had managed just one win in three trips to the WTA Finals.

Kendal Yancey scored five straight points, made a 3-pointer and threw down a dunk in transition that made it 62-44 with just under 8 minutes left.Mack and Roach sat out the first game because of an offseason rules violation.

Tim Fiorvanti recaps every match on Sundays WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view card, which takes place from The American Airlines Center in Dallas. Senior stats analyst Sean Coyle offers ratings worth a maximum of five points. Criteria for ratings is based on storytelling, in-ring execution, match?psychology,?timing and innovation -- worth up to one point each.The following is updated in real time.WWE SmackDown tag team championship: The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton) def. Heath Slater & Rhyno (c) by pinfall (5:53)In the three-and-a-half years since the debut of The Wyatt Family in WWE, Bray Wyatt -- both solo, and as a member of the group -- has been involved in one high-profile rivalry after another; but until Sunday night, Wyatt was the only one who never held a title in the WWE.That changed in a hurry at TLC, though, as Wyatt and Randy Orton predictably decimated Heath Slater and Rhyno to become the second team to hold the SmackDown tag team championships.Slater and Rhyno received some great reactions from fans in the lead-up to their tag-title win but Sundays match provided them a quick dose of reality about where they stand in the pecking order during their entrance. Despite being the bad guys in this rivalry, Orton and Wyatt got a heros welcome, while Slater and Rhyno came in to relative silence.As WWE announcer Mauro Ranallo pointed out, Rhyno began the match for the tag team champions for the first time since they began tagging with each other, and once Slater was tagged in ring it was clear why that was --- he appeared overmatched in almost every way against Wyatt and Orton. Slater took a beating for a good chunk of the match, but Rhyno seemed to do what he had done best for their entire reign as he cleaned house upon re-entering.The most interesting wrinkle of all happened in the closing moments of the match, when Luke Harper emulated Ortons sacrifice from Survivor Series and ate a gore from Rhyno to save Orton outside of the ring. Orton then grabbed the blind tag, hit an RKO on Rhyno and sealed the victory to tremendous applause.There might be dissension among the ranks of The Wyatts down the line, but for now -- as was clear as both Wyatt and Orton draped their new titles over Harpers shoulders -- it appears they are as well-aligned as theyve been since Orton joined.No disqualification match: Nikki Bella def. Carmella by pinfall (7:39)This match took far too long to happen during their feud, but once Bella and Carmella got down to it, this no-DQ match was as advertised -- a violent sendoff to a long-brewing conflict.Carmella wore the wounds of the beating she suffered Tuesday on SmackDown after running down Bella on the microphone, and in the early stages she got her measure of revenge by channeling her inner Sasha Banks with some vicious kendo stick shots.Bella took control by kicking Carmella in the back and then throwing her into the video board on the ring apron. She then climbed onto the ring barricade and hit a well-executed spinning kick to Carmellas chin, but the finale came when Bella used a fire extinguisher to great effect and then hit the Rack Attack 2.0 to get the pinfall victory.Both of these women are now clear to move on and put this rivalry behind them, as evidenced by Carmella pointing to Natalya as Bellas secret attacker at Survivor Series. While this match wasnt a technical classic, it accomplished what it set out to do by getting Bella a sorely needed victory.Ladder match for WWE Intercontinental championship: The Miz (c) def. Dolph Ziggler (25:10)It would be incredibly difficult to match the intensity and natural energy of their previous matches, but in this final showdown, The Miz and Ziggler closed the last chapter of their feud with an appropriately vicious sendoff.This match started in a similar manner to their last couple of contests, with each guy swinging for the fences early and missing due to the familiarity of their opponents offense.The pace was slow and methodical for that reason, and even as ladders were put into play, most of the biggest swings early on missed their targets. Counter-offense proved to define this match, as Ziggler ate a face-full of ladder on multiple occasions before ultimately using a ladder to pull the The Miz into the ringpost using his momentum. It was clear that these guys were going to get enough time to tell a fitting conclusion to this lengthy story.A spinning DDT from Ziggler on The Miz was the first sign of a definitive advantage for either man, but even as he walked past Maryse on the outside he took far too long to take advantage. The Miz responded by dropkicking the ladder into Zigglers face and then shoving it into a prone Ziggler in the corner multiple times. Yet again, though, neither man had a chance to settle down for long, with Ziggler neutralizing The Miz and springboarding off a ladder bridge to hit a Shawn Michaels-esque flying elbow drop.The Miz took over this match completely by working over Zigglers knee for a solid five-minute stretch, including a figure-four leglock with Zigglers leg looped through a ladder. Even as Ziggler tried to superkick The Miz, his injury didnt allow him tto do it and he ate a Skull-Crushing Finale face-first onto the ladder. Mike Singletary Womens Jersey. here were a few other truly creative spots, but The Miz hanging from the loop holding the title belt and Ziggler shaking him free and then using the ladder as a weapon was another big moment. The Miz, who proudly proclaimed I never get injured in the lead-up to this match, landed awkwardly on his knee and continued to sell that throughout the rest of the match.The Miz bounced Ziggler off the top rope and then powerbombed him into a corner ladder, and the match continued to build until both hobbled men climbed two ladders next to each other in the center of the ring. The Miz took advantage against Ziggler, who climbed both ladders at the same time, and hit him with two low-blow kicks to send Ziggler falling for the final time.One rivalry is undeniably over, and Zigglers future is uncertain, but the ongoing conflict between The Miz and SmackDown general manager Daniel Bryan took center-stage in a promo just before the match and immediately afterward.I want to dedicate this win to the SmackDown general manager Daniel Bryan, The Miz said immediately after the match. Without your motivation, always hating me, and denying me, and giving Dolph Ziggler chance after chance after chance, it motivated me to be the greatest Intercontinental champion ever.While its hard to figure out exactly how this conflict will continue with Bryans physical condition, The Miz has clearly not seen the end of the wrath of his GM.Chairs match: Baron Corbin def. Kalisto by pinfall (12:51)Much was said about how the element of chairs in this match placed things on more of a level footing in terms of the storyline between the 6-foot-8 Corbin and the 5-foot-6 Kalisto. But very few pointed out how ugly and one-sided it could also get with the chairs in play.The early minutes of this match leaned far more heavily toward the latter, but a drop toe-hold into a chair wedged into the corner by Kalisto and a leap onto Corbin that put his back through six chairs set up in the middle of the ring changed that tune in a hurry. Corbin regain the momentum with a perfect little-guy versus big-guy spot; as Kalisto dove through the middle rope with a tope suicida, Corbin caught him in mid-air and spun him around several times before landing a Deep Six onto the floor.Say what you want about this match, but both men did a great job conveying just how much they were supposed to hate each other. Corbin missed chair shots as Kalisto did everything to stay one step ahead of the crash, and Kalisto sacrificed his body with an incredible moonsault into double-knees onto a prone Corbin with a chair laying on his chest.Kalisto connected with a great number of chair shots of his own, and set up a pile of chairs for a Salida Del Sol, but a chair smash to the face of a flying Kalisto and an End of Days from Corbin onto said pile of chairs brought the match to a swift end. Both superstars put their all into this match, and while the crowd was still coming down from the ladder match, there was a fair bit to like about this conflict between two under-utilized talents.Tables match for WWE SmackDown womens championship: Alexa Bliss def. Becky Lynch (c) (15:16)Just as the chairs match element seemingly leveled the playing field in the previous match, making this a tables match created one of the hardest outcomes of the night to predict. Sure, Lynch was already pushed from the top rope through a table in the build-up, but having a certain element of luck in play always gives the underdog an advantage they wouldnt otherwise enjoy.Both women really laid the punches and kicks in on their opponents, and both Lynch and Bliss really lived on the edge early in this match as they each teetered on the ring apron and teased falling through the table below. The pace of this match was somewhat off throughout, unfortunately, and while there were moments of excitement and some cool spots, both Lynch and Bliss took a little too long setting up tables on several occasions.Bliss had the lengthier advantage after doing her signature continuous stomps to the back of the head, forcing Bliss face into the mat. At some point the teases of running into or through the table, though well done, started to become a little bit much; there was one particular moment, however, when Bliss DDTd Lynch onto the metal edge of an upside down table, where the challenger looked positioned to take control and brought a somewhat quiet crowd back into the match.The pace of this title match certainly picked up in the latter stages and, after an eye rake, Bliss powerbombed Lynch from the apron through the table that lingered on the outside of the ring the entire match. Bliss became the second new champion of the night and, while she isnt quite the in-ring technician Lynch is, she provides a great top heel for the talented womens roster to chase in the coming weeks and months.TLC match for WWE world championship: AJ Styles (c) def.

College basketball has become a guards game. Jadon Sancho Dortmund Jersey . No wonder Iowa State starts the season as a Top 25 team.Although there are serious questions about the frontcourt, the Cyclones enter Friday nights lidlifter with Savannah State as the No. 24 team in the nation for three good reasons -- Monte Morris, Matt Thomas and Naz Mitrou-Long.The three-headed backcourt will be among the best in the country, starring Morris, a first-team preseason All-America pick by some pundits. Thomas and Long are terrific 3-point shooters who can do other things, like rebound and defend.Add 6-5, 250-pound Deonte Burton, a power forward disguised in a guards body, and Iowa State will be able to attack opponents from many different angles.Those four guys are all upperclassmen and theyve got to be what makes this team go, second-year Cyclones coach Steve Prohm said. They have to be our mainstays.Particularly when one considers the holes left up front by the departure of starting forwards Georges Niang, Abdul Nader and Jameel McKay. The trio combined to average 44.5 points and 20 rebounds a game last season.Niang averaged 28.7 points during three NCAA Tournament games, capping one of the greatest careers in school history. He finished as the programs No. 2 scorer with 2,228 points and is Iowa States only two-time All-American.Prohm is hoping to get at least adequate play from a plethora of newcomers, two of whom bring extensive Division I experience. Graduate transfers Darrell Bowie (Northern Illinois) and Merrill Holden (Louisiana Tech), along with 6-8 freshman Solomon Young, figure to get the most playing time right off the bat.In Sunday nights 101-57 exhibition rout of Sioux Falls, Young scored 12 points and added four rebounds in 12 minutes, while Bowie grabbed seven rebounds in 12 minutes. Holden started and rejected four shots in 16 minutes.I thought Merrill, the first 10 minutes, his energy level was really good, Prohm said. I thought Solomon came out and did some good things. I thought Bowies energy level was good. Thats what we need from these guys.While the Cyclones are coming off a 23-12 season, the Tigers went 16-16 after being picked for a 12th-place finish in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. They qualified for the CollegeInsider.com Tournament, losing in the first round to Texas-Arlington.But Savannah State lost four starters off that team and is picked near the bottom of the MEAC again this season, as it has eight new players on its roster. However, its one returnee is 6-4 swingman Troyce Manassa, who led the Tigers in scoring at 12.4 per game while adding 5.1 rebounds.Savannah State coach Horace Broadnax, who played for John Thompsons Georgetown team that won the 1984 NCAA Championship, plans to build this team around Manassa.He can do it all, Broadnax said. He can score the basketball and pass the basketball. When we need someone to make a play, well put it in his hands.The Tigers wont be eligible for postseason play due to low APR scores.

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Deion Sanders Youth Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Do you think teams should get delay of game penalties when they ice the puck and the winger goes to take the draw and gets waved out (on purpose?) so his centre can take the draw? Ive noticed this through the entire playoffs this year - do you think this is something on the minds of the officials as well? Could this be proven in any way and if so, wouldnt you say that is more of a delay of game call than the one where they shoot the puck over the glass? Thanks,Randy Kataluk,Coral Harbour, NU Randy: There is no doubt that coaches instruct their players to utilize a first face-off ejection by a non-center to grab a few extra seconds of breathing time following an icing infraction. They arent fooling anyone; especially the Linesmen. In an effort to minimize this ploy I have noticed the Linesmen initiate the face process very quickly and then eject the decoy for a first violation almost as soon as he arrives at the face-off dot. Beyond that, there is little at this juncture that can be done to alter the process. You do bring up an interesting point for discussion Randy, even though I wouldnt necessarily endorse an immediate delay of game penalty in this instance. The Officials cannot (or should not) control who the coach selects to take the draw. Their job is to conduct a fair face-off as quickly as humanly possible to uphold the integrity of the no-change icing rule. The rules, however, are already in place to penalize a team that commits a second face-off violation during the same face-off. This infraction is very seldom enforced and we have seen where the standard can be relaxed on the second face-off in an effort to avoid a call that brings undue attention to the Linesmen. If you really want to get the attention of a team that sends a sacrificial offering into the face-off circle conduct that second one to the letter of the law and impose a second face-off violation penalty when deserved. Its hard to blame the Linesmen for a less stringent standard after ejecting the first center since in the overall complexion of any game a second face-off violation doesnt rank up there with other game control, restraining or aggressive situations that the Referees might deem unworthy of a penalty. Very little support is also offered the Linesmen whenever they have enforced a second face-off violation.  The first time a penalty was called for this rule everyone went ballistic; including the Hockey Operations Department.  A Linesmens judgment was placed into question when he ejected a second centreman near the end of a close game as bedlam was being allowed to take place with a "let em play" standard by the Refs. It didnt take long for the message to be relayed through the chain of command as to what the expected practice was with regard to a second face-off violation. Theres an old saying that there is no faster method of communication than the "telephone, telegraph or just tell a Hockey Official!" So Randy, if this ploy on an icing is something that anyone would really like to address I would send the message that the second face-off would be conducted to the letter and a penalty would quickly result if a violation were to occur. At that point, the Linesmen would deserve our full support. On The Radar Screen From Game 3: - Call it for what it was: Kaspars Daugavins left his feet and elbowed Andrew Shaw to the ear. (Last time I checked the ear is attached to the head?) The official penalty summary lists "roughing" as being assessed by the Referee. The most obvious infraction choice is elbowing; followed by illegal check to the head or charging but certainly not roughing. Additionally, please enforce charging rule next season in an effort to keep players skates on the ice when delivering a check. The height advantage gained is often cerebral! - Dont overreact in scrum and player battle situations: Shawn Thornton was singled out for an early penalty in a scrum with Andrew Shaw. David Bolland was assessed a trip when he and Jonny Boychuk tangled up as Bolland attempted to get into his players bench for a line change at 19:00 minutes of the second period. Neither were strong penalty calls and an overreaction; especially in a Stanley Cup Final game.  - Niklas Hjalmarsson tripping call on Daniel Paille: I liked this call as viewed on NBC even though the other Network in Canada apparently had an overhead shot of Hjalmarsson contacting the puck just a split-hair prior to taking down Paille. On this bang-bang, desperation dive made by the Hawk defenceman it certainly appeared to me that Hjalmarssons first point of contact with his glove and stick shaft was to the right skate of Paille followed by the puck on the wrap-around of his stick. This was certainly too close to call with the naked eye in real-time and the benefit goes to Referee Chris Rooney. I have never understood why we allow a defender, from a poor position, make a desperation dive and touch the puck with his stick an instant prior to wiping out the attacker. This is regarded as a good defensive play while in reality the attacker is tripped and eliminated on the play or from regaining puck possession. This play always occurs with an attacker in a scoring position or on a breakaway. Perhaps time to reassess this policy given the tighter restraining standards that are expected to be called? - Assess differential when deserved in illegal battles regardless of game time: Zdeno Chara was fully deserving of an extra minor penalty for his overly aggressive actions with Bryan Bickell at 19:48 of the third period. Im not suggesting penalizing Big Z for being stronger; just more aggressive in his illegal actions. Treating this altercation as coincidental does not equate to the Thornton or Bolland penalties earlier in the game. Deebo Samuel 49ers Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Frank Gore Womens Jersey .

"It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. LONDON -- As unified middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin prepares to make his 17th defense, against Englands Kell Brook, theres a third wheel muscling in on the attention being paid to their fight: lineal middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.Golovkin, a knockout machine and perhaps boxings most feared fighter, has come to the birthplace of boxing to defend against Brook on his turf on Saturday (HBO, 5:30 p.m. ET/PT with a replay at 10 p.m. ET/PT) at the sold-out O2 Arena because Alvarez has steadfastly refused to fight him, going so far as to relinquish his sanctioning organization belt rather than fulfill a mandatory obligation to Golovkin in a megafight.The typically mild-mannered Golovkin normally doesnt utter a negative word about anybody, but Alvarezs gamesmanship clearly has annoyed him. He has been more outspoken about the situation than ever before.Its like a circus, too many clowns, Golovkin said. Canelo knows he doesnt want to fight me. Why do you keep talking then?Although Alvarez won the lineal middleweight title, he did so at his preferred catch weight of 155 pounds against Miguel Cotto last November and continues to resist a move to 160 pounds. Instead of agreeing to face Golovkin, as he appeared to do following his huge knockout of Amir Khan, a welterweight who moved up, in a May defense, Alvarez is retreating to junior middleweight. He will return to 154 pounds, where he once held titles, to challenge titleholder Liam Smith, Brooks countryman, on Sept. 17 (HBO PPV) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.Golovkin, who has knocked out 22 consecutive opponents since 2008 and owns the best knockout percentage in middleweight title history (.914), is resistant to any criticism that he is picking on a welterweight in Brook, who owns a world title and is considered by many No. 1 at 147 pounds, the same way Alvarez did with Khan.Canelo was the middleweight champion and chose Amir Khan, said Golovkin, who has been rebuffed by a whos who of the middleweight division in recent years. We didnt choose Brook. He chose me. My goal is all the middleweight belts. Canelo is not ready until next year or maybe not for five years.The 30-year-old Brook (36-0, 25 KOs) had no fear of facing Golovkin (35-0, 32 KOs), jumping at the chance when offered the fight after a bout between GGG and another Brit, middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr., fell apart in the final moments when Eubank allowed the deadline to pass without signing.This fight is much bigger than if I faced Eubank, Golovkin said. [Brook] is a champion, hes undefeated, he is more famous. Who knows Eubank? Everybody understands he is 50 percent clown, 50 percent fighter. OK, he says hes ready, hes fighting. [Then] hes not ready, more dancing, more talking, trash talking. Hes like clown.Brook is moving up two weight divisions in an attempt to become the third reigning welterweight titlist to win a middleweight title in boxing history, joining all-time greats Sugar Ray Robinson and Carmen Basilio. Kazakhstans Golovkin, 34, who fights out of Santa Monica, California, respects the fire Brook has shown in accepting this difficult assignment.Everybody has risk in boxing, Golovkin said. Hes moving up and taking that risk, and for that I have a great deal of respect for him. Brook is dangerous. He has a very high boxing IQ and were fighting in his country.Golovkin, however, said he has little respect for Alvarez after the way he led him to believe they would fight on next weeks Mexican Independence Day weekend.After Alvarez knocked out Khan, he called Golovkin into the ring, telling him to his face that Mexicans dont f--- around and seemingly promising they would fight next.At the postfight news conference, Alvarez said he would even fight GGG at 160 pounds, and his promoter, Golden Boys Oscar De La Hoya, put on an over-the-top display, telling the media that Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler, of K2 Promotions, should make sure his phone was on because he would be calling him the following day to open discussions.But instead of trying to make the fight, Alvarez vacated his title, which interim titlist Golovkin inherited, and eventually signed to fight Smith, who was all but unknown outside the United Kingdom. Alvarez also promised that he would fight Golovkin next September, although there is no formal agreement and few believe him.

But maybe if I look bad with Kell Brook or another guy and hes ready, but [only] if I look bad.An Alvarez-Golovkin fight looms as one of the biggest in boxing, but it could play out like the frustrating Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight, which took years to make. Golden Boys Eric Gomez, promoted this week to president of the company, has said repeatedly to ESPN.com that Alvarez will fight Golovkin, but he would not give a timetable.That is the biggest fight, with Canelo, Golovkin said. But he stepped back. He is like loser. After Khan he said, OK, G, come into the ring. Im asking, What you want? He said, Im OK, I looked good. We fight. Then at the press conference, he says, I am ready, give me gloves. Im ready right now. Too much talking. This is not true. He is saying, I am ready [but] maybe not next fight. Next year. Everybody understands he said I am ready right now. I gave him too much attention. I do not believe he is ready.I know him. We trained together, like, three training camps. We sparred together. I know his team. He is not ready. I told him, Please just give me my belt, and thats it. He says OK and steps back. Too much talking, too much trash talking. Just give me my belt and get out of here. Maybe its business. After [the Khan] press conference I lost respect for him because he talks too much.Abel Sanchez, Golovkins trainer and the 2015 Boxing Writers Association trainer of the year, said Golovkin is angry that Alvarez is playing games.When the whole Canelo fiasco first started, when he fought Cotto, we were trying to just be laid back and let him talk and let him do his thing, Sanchez said. Once he called Golovkin into the ring, Golovkin was very offended. He may not say that to you, but I know Golovkin and Golovkin was like, What the hell did they call me in here for if hes not going to be true to his word?But when he did that and he showed all that bravado and then backed down, I think it set off something in Golovkin that was like, You know what? Im through being a nice guy. Im through not saying the things that I honestly think.Sanchez shares the opinion of Golovkin and many others who do not believe Alvarez will fight him next year.I dont think so. Weve had that discussion, and I honestly dont think so either, Sanchez said. I think Canelo knows he doesnt stand a chance and I think that Oscar knows that he doesnt stand a chance. But the more they talk, the more they stay relevant. We as the GGG team just keep GGG busy. When you keep him busy, eventually the fans will have so much pressure on Canelo, as the Mexican fans are doing right now, and the journalists. Dont talk if youre not going to back it up.Sanchez said that had Alvarez and Golden Boy simply told Golovkin that Alvarez was not ready for the fight, vacated and said he would come back and fight Golovkin for the title in a few fights, Golovkin would have been cool with that.But he called G in the ring and said some bad things in Spanish and then Oscar goes in the press conference and says, Tom, make sure you answer the phone. Come on, Sanchez said.Then along came Brook, daring to be great and going up to fight the man nobody else wants to face. Golovkin and Sanchez both respect that. A lot.I think a guy like Kell and a guy like [Sugar Ray] Leonard and guys like Robinson, those guys are wanting to test themselves to see where theyre at, Sanchez said. Theres nothing wrong with saying, You know what? That guy was just too big [if you lose]. But when they introduce you as middleweight champion and you talk all kinds of nonsense and then give up the title, how can you have any respect for somebody like that?Said Golovkin: Kell Brook has my full respect. Its not easy for us to get opponents. Hes ready for me and Im ready for him. Kell Brook is the biggest test to me. Hes a great champion, hes moving up in weight, but great fighters have done that and I know hes a great boxer and he will test me the most. ' ' '
