Ive enjoyed it and I still enjoy it but I dont want to be the bloke who went on two years too long, Miles told RSN927.I would rather be the bloke who went two years early.Ive been thinking about this for five years and it feels right.Its the right time to go.A long break in the middle of the year during which Miles travelled overseas helped him make up his mind to step away from race broadcasting.He said calling three meetings a week and the amount of work required pre-meeting, as well as post-meeting, was taxing.He said he had contemplated calling just one meeting a week but didnt believe that was fair, saying broadcasting was a full-time job.Miles said on reflection he was stepping away from calling having had the best spring carnival of his career.Nothing will change until June unless a replacement is found earlier with Miles to be a member of the selection panel.Beyond June, Miles will have involvement with some historical projects on while hes also in discussions with RSN927.Im far from walking away from the game, Miles said.Im not going to miss calling, because Ive done plenty of it, and Im not going to miss racing because Ill continue to go.Im still welded on to it a bit but its the right time to walk away from broadcasting and do some other things.Racing Victoria will develop a scholarship for aspiring racecallers to be named in his honour with Miles to play an active role in nurturing young talent.

The former England forward has struggled for first team football this season having started just two games for 19th-placed Stoke, both back in August.Crouch responded to a tweet lamenting his performances on a football computer game recently with the quip: At least Im getting a game somewhere. Mark Hughes calls for Crouch to be patient Hughes saw the funny side of it all, and sympathised for Crouchs plight.Petes quite sharp on Twitter so I always keep a look out once people tell me hes been on there, Hughes said.

Two weeks into the NCAA volleyball season, heres whats happening in the world of digs, kills and blocks.Strong start for BruinsFive years ago UCLA reached the pinnacle of the sport but hasnt been close since, missing the postseason in 2013 and losing in the the regional semifinals the last two years.Perhaps 2016 is the year the Bruins, picked to finish second to Stanford in the Pac-12, return to elite status.

It was only the 15th time ever that a nonconference opponent left Rec Hall a winner.Freshmen continue to play in integral role in North Carolinas success.Playing across town in Durham, the Tar Heels posted their first 20-block outing in a decade behind freshman Sydnye Fields with 15 block assists, a school single-match record.As a team, the Tar Heels recorded 21 stuffs and 38 block assists, also a school record.Outside hitter Julia Scoles, MVP of the Penn State Classic and ACC freshman of the week after opening weekend, amassed 31 kills against Duke and TCU, which continues to receives votes in the national poll.[This freshman class is] learning a lot so early in their careers, coach Joe Sagula said. To get this experience and know how to fight through it is going to pay off later in the season. For Sydnye, as a freshman, to do what she did, its fantastic. It just means a lot for their future. The future for Carolina volleyball over the next few years looks good, because theyll all be back.For good measure, the sweep of TCU was the 1,000th win in Tar Heels history.No. 11 North Carolina will test its mettle this weekend, facing No. 2 Wisconsin and No. 5 Minnesota in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.Meanwhile, Penn State is still strugglingThe skid continues for Penn State (22-3), which has seemingly gone from bad to worse after falling to North Carolina on opening weekend in State College. Nike Air Max Outlet Nederland. The Nittany Lions dropped a pair over the weekend, falling to Colorado and No. 9 Stanford in the Big 10/Pac-12 Challenge in Boulder, Colorado. Penn State dropped four spots to No. 17 in the latest poll, and the victory lifted the Buffaloes (4-1) into the poll at No. 18.Through five games, Penn State is still struggling to replace the offense generated by graduated stars Megan Courtney and Aiyana Whitney.Penn State extended the Buffaloes to five but was outdone 15-3 in the final set, the lowest output for the Nittany Lions in a set since rally scoring began in 2001. It was Colorados first victory over Penn State since 1989, and the Buffaloes capped the weekend with a win over Illinois.No. 9 Stanford swept Penn State the next night in a matchup featuring two of the most storied teams in the sport with 13 national titles between them. It was the first sweep for the Cardinals over the Nittany Lions since 2010, and it came behind eight aces, including four from sophomore Hayley Hodson. Penn State was without an ace and committed nine service errors.Penn State has not had more than one loss through the first five games of the season since 1993, when the Nittany Lions were 3-2 following back-to-back losses to Nebraska and UCLA. Penn State finished 1993 at 31-5 and reached the final four that year. Penn State has not been 2-3 since 1980, when the Nittany Lions finished 34-11.USC revival; Santa Clara arrivalNot only was it a good weekend for UCLA and Stanford, No. 24 USC is back on track, rebounding from an 0-3 start to even its record. The Women of Troy swept then-No. 23 Kentucky, beat Northern Iowa in four and survived Creighton in five to win the USC Radisson Classic.But flying under the radar in the west is Santa Clara, off to its best start at 6-0 since 2005, the most successful year in school history when the team reached the final four. The Broncos, already with a victory over USC, upset Louisville on its home court and finished off Auburn and Stony Brook in the Active Ankle Challenge over the weekend.Santa Clara limited the defending ACC champs to .153 hitting. Meanwhile, Jensen Cunningham hit .440 for the match and .486 for the weekend to be named tournament MVP.The Broncos debuted in the poll this week at No. 19.Joining good companyTampa coach Chris Catanach notched his 1,000th career win when the Division II Spartans swept Franklin Pierce on Friday.Catanach is the third Division II coach to reach that milestone and eighth among coaches in all divisions.

Despite seven new faces and the offseason retirement of future Hall of Fame forward Tim Duncan, its been business as usual for the San Antonio Spurs over the first four games of the new campaign. Wholesale Air Max Plus Australia .The Spurs look to continue their hot start when they host the Utah Jazz on Tuesday at the AT&T Center.San Antonio has won all four times its taken the court, thrice on the road, and is already in the routine of resting veteran players for the rigors of the eight-month-long journey to the postseason.The Spurs gave starting point guard Tony Parker and reserve guard Manu Ginobili the night off against New Orleans on Saturday but San Antonio cruised to an easy 98-79 win.Part of the Spurs early success has been the play of their reserves, especially point guard Patty Mills, who scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting against the Pelicans in a spot start for Parker and then added another 18-point game off the bench in San Antonios 106-99 victory at Miami on Sunday.DeWanye Dedmond, one of the Spurs under-the-radar offseason acquisitions, has contributed seven points and 7.3 rebounds per game while playing an average of 18 minutes and already has eight blocked shots.David Lee, who has taken some of the minutes that belonged to David West last year, is scoring eight points per game and pulling down 6.8 rebounds per outing in an average of just under 17 minutes.Dedmond has been very active and has been doing a wonderful job off the bench, as has Lee, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Saturday. DeWanyes game is running and giving us some energy, and David is a basketball player -- he knows how to play and fits into any kind of situation.The Jazz (1-2) head to San Antonio on the heels of a 88-75 road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.George Hill paced Utah with 18 points while reserve guard Dante Exum was the only other Jazz player to reach double figures with 10. Joe Johnson scored seven points in the opening quarter, but didnt score again.The four starters other than Hill -- Johnson, Boris Diaw, Rudy Gobert and Rodney Hood -- combined for just 20 points.I didnt believe it was a good night for me -- its a team game, not individual, Hill said after the loss. My stats dont mean anything if we lose a game like we did (Sunday).Jazz forward Gordon Hayward sat out his third straight game with a broken finger on his left hand and likely will not play in Tuesdays contest.Although San Antonio is often considered the most international team in the NBA, the Jazz have supplanted the Spurs in far-flung flavor this year, with seven players from outside the United States: center Gobert and forward Diaw (France), guard Dante Exum and forward Joe Ingles (Australia), guard Raul Neto (Brazil), forward Trey Lyles (Canada) and forward Joel Bolomboy (Ukraine).On Monday the Jazz beat the Oct. 31, 11:59 p.m. EDT deadline to avoid restricted free agency by agreeing to a four-year contract extension with Gobert worth $102 million, according to league sources. The contract is just short of the projected maximum offer of $106 million. Cheap Air Max Plus Australia . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. Air Max Plus Wholesale .

It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline.

Wayne Rooney says Gareth Southgate is in pole position to become the England boss on a permanent basis. Salomon Shoes Sale Clearance . Southgate was in a typically calm and satisfied mood on Friday night at Wembley having overseen a 3-0 win over Scotland and racking up seven points from his three World Cup Qualifiers in charge.The FA will now begin to formally assess their options for a new boss after the friendly with Spain at Wembley on Tuesday and it seems the current squad are in no rush to have a new face at the helm. England skipper Rooney, who Southgate has stuck by despite mounting criticism of the Manchester United striker, told Sky Sports: Southgate has done brilliant with the U21s and hes come in and done a really good job.Hes got two wins from three and a good point from the last game in Slovenia. Its down to the FA now and hes put himself in pole position and Im sure the right decision will be made. Has he done enough? Big win but Gareth Southgates issues remain Southgate, who took over from Sam Allardyce in September, revealed he has loved taking the reins of the England team, but his future was out of his hands. The former Middlesbrough boss said: Its a unique situation. Im not sure anybody else has had this many games for everybody to assess what youre doing.I just wanted to win this game because I know what it means to this country. It was a big night for our players to come through this pressure environment given the recent history.It was down to three headers from Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Gary Cahill securing the spoils against the wasteful Scots on Friday night to cement the teams advantage at the top of Group F by two points.Two of the scorers echoed their captains opinions on the interim boss. Gary Cahill gives his reaction after the 3-0 victory over Scotland Liverpool forward Sturridge, whose clever header opened the scoring at Wembley to calm the early nerves, added: Hes relaxed the camp and stamped his authority on the tactics and with his backroom staff.I think hes got a good chance to get the job. All the lads are very relaxed with him and we like the way things are going.While Chelsea defender Cahill said: Its out of our hands and all we can do is give our very best for him and I think we did that tonight [against Scotland]. Everyones boosted by a victory like that. Also See: England 3-0 Scotland report Has Southgate done enough?

Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. Salomon Shoes Outlet Australia . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J. On July 9 at the recently opened T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Ultimate Fighting Championship will celebrate its milestone 200th event with UFC 200, a mammoth of a card that features high-level bouts all the way from the preliminaries to the main events on pay-per-view.A week following the mixed martial arts spectacle, another type of fighting event will be taking hold of Sin City: the 2016 Evolution Championship Series (Evo) for competitive fighting games. The main event, the Street Fighter V top eight, will be broadcast live on ESPN2 on July 17 at 7 p.m. PDT/10 p.m. EDT from inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center.What would happen if these two worlds collided? In preparation for Saturdays fights, which coincide with UFCs International Fight Week, we took the top matches from the UFC 200 lineup and set out to determine which SFV character each of the UFC competitors would be.Heavyweight 3-Round Main Event: Brock Lesnar (Necalli) vs. Mark Hunt (Birdie)Necalli, known as the Emissary of the God, is a beast-like being that wakes from his slumber every few hundred years to feast on the souls of the worlds strongest warriors. Wait, are we sure Capcom didnt base this brand-new character on Brock Lesnar in the first place?The former heavyweight champion of the world returns at UFC 200 for his first MMA bout in five years since losing back-to-back fights to Cain Velasquez, who just so happens to be on the card, and Alistair Overeem. After competing in World Wrestling Entertainment since 2012, the man known as the Beast Incarnate is hungry to return to the Octagon for his next battle.Unlike Lesnars Necalli, who towers over the rest of the fighters in stature, Mark Hunts Birdie is less physically imposing, similar to the Kiwi brawler. A master of the bar room brawl, Birdie is as tough as they come in the world of Street Fighter, and his mastery of chains allows him to pull his opponents in for a well-timed knockout shot. Hunt, a veteran of almost 20 years, simply loves to fight. He has fought in mixed martial arts, kickboxing and boxing throughout his career, and has never backed away from a challenge. Dubbed the King of Walk-Offs for his one-punch knockout power, it doesnt matter how large a beast Necalli or Lesnar is; it only takes one precise strike for the result to be the same.Womens Bantamweight Championship: Miesha Tate (R. Mika) vs. Amanda Nunes (Laura)In the only womens fight on the main card at UFC 200, the new bantamweight champion Miesha Tate will attempt to defend her title against the Brazilian contender Amanda Nunes. After beating the seemingly-unbeatable Ronda Rousey for the belt, boxing champion Holly Holm dropped the title to the veteran Tate this past March at UFC 196.A grappling-based fighter, Tate has been in the game for almost a decade in mixed martial arts. Similarly, her counterpart in Rainbow Mika is a fighter who enjoys fighting on the ground with top-notch grappling and powerful throws. Also like Mika, Tate is the type of fighter who will stay in the ring until the bitter end. She routinely stages comebacks in her fights, like in the championship victory against Holm, where she was losing until the final submission.Tates opponent, Amanda Nunes, enters Saturdays matchup on a three-fight winning streak and is capable of holding onto the hot potato that is the womens bantamweight title. A heavy striker, Nunes fits well with her Brazilian peer in Street Fighter V: Laura. While proficient in both fighting on her feet and taking it to the ground, it is Nunes (and Lauras) pressure that makes them both incredibly difficult opponents to fight against.Interim Featherweight Championship: José Aldo (Vega) vs. Frankie Edgar (Guuile)With current featherweight champion Conor McGregor set to settle the score with Nate Diaz at the upcoming UFC 202, a five-round contest will take place this Saturday between the top two contenders to crown an interim champion for the division. Buy Salomon Shoes Australia. On one side of the Octagon we have José Aldo, the former longtime featherweight champion of the world who lost his title to McGregor less than a year ago in a shocking 13-second knockout. As he looks to regain his crown, Aldo matches well to the technical specimen that is Vega. When it comes to speed and mechanical ability, there is no one better than Aldo. One of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, Aldos quickness and deadly Muay Thai strikes with his knees in the clinch show why he went almost a decade undefeated in competition. Nicknamed the Spanish Ninja, Vega primarily uses his flexibility and bullfighting expertise to lure opponents into lunging forward for attacks and opening themselves up for a powerful counterattack.Opposite him is another legend of the sport in Americas Frankie Edgar. A past champion in the UFCs lightweight division, The Answer wants to become one of the first to claim a title at two different weight classes. A native of New Jersey, Edgar would be Guile in the Capcom universe, as the all-American brawler from Street Fighter has been around even longer than the tenured Edgar. Similarly to Edgar, Guile is an all-around combatant, proficient in most areas and skilled in both the offensive and defensive aspects of battle.Saturdays showdown between the two will be a classic struggle between the Brazilians speed and the Americans grit.Light Heavyweight 3-Round Fight: Daniel Cormier (Zangief) vs. Anderson Silva (F.A.N.G)Daniel Cormier was scheduled to fight in the main event of the evening against fierce rival Jon Jones for the light heavyweight championship. However, the match was called off after Jones was ousted from the card because he failed a drug test back in June. In his stead, on only two days notice, is possibly the greatest mixed martial artist of all time: Brazils Anderson Silva, the 41-year-old who held the middleweight championship for an unprecedented 2,457 days. Although it will be a light heavyweight fight, the title will not be on the line, as Silva stated hell already be considered the man if he can knock off the champ at the biggest UFC event.For The Spider, as Silva is often styled, his funky, unorthodox style of striking and movement around the octagon fits perfectly with Street Fighters F.A.N.G, the second-in-command of the Shadaloo behind M. Bison himself. Although Silvas strength might not be the same as it was back a decade, or even five years ago, his illusive nature and unpredictability are what has set him apart from almost every fighter in the UFC during his tenure. F.A.N.G, like Silva, is just annoying to fight against -- the long, lanky limbs of both fighters are able to out-range opponents and mix up the pace of fights.Cormier, who is the naturally heavier fighter -- showing impressive results in both the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions -- is shorter and has a reach disadvantage against his new opponent; that is what could give him the most trouble on the night hes preparing for. A world-class wrestler, Cormier fits best with the Red Cyclone Zangief, the all-powerful close-range grappler and wrestler. The American Olympian and the Russian bear wrestler both know how to close the space between them and their opponent before delivering a thundering takedown to lay them out on the mat. ' ' ' 
EUGENE, Ore. -- Every team has one of them: A player who hasnt gotten much attention from outside the program but has made a significant impact on his teammates.It might be a scout-team regular, or even a walk-on. It might be someone who just grinded it out every day and never complained.At Oregon, that guy is senior running back Jarret LaCoste.LaCoste was a walk-on at Oregon two years ago when the Ducks went to the first College Football Playoff championship game. Hes since become a key contributor on the scout team -- last week he was tasked with simulating Stanfords Christian McCaffrey.Ask his teammates and theyll all say hes a beast in the weight room, helping younger players to keep up their offseason lifting regimens.LaCoste, who played this season against Washington and gained 55 yards on 10 carries, has already graduated and hes about to embark on a job with a Portland accounting firm. He was never on scholarship during his career with the Ducks -- but he jokes hes gotten some stylish Nike team gear.Honestly, I never would have dreamed I was going to play Division I football, ever, he said. So my expectations just from the start were low, I was like, `Wow, Im just so honored to be on this team, I cant believe they let me on. This is awesome. But then I thought, `I feel very privileged and honored to be on this team, so I better give them everything I can and never let anyone down.Arizona tight end Josh Kern was originally recruited by then-coach Mike Stoops as a quarterback but switched positions after a redshirt year. Hes had only had a dozen touches.But Kern has been the heart of the Wildcats. He gave the eulogy for senior outside linebacker Zach Hemmila, who died in his sleep in August. Kern also spoke at the funeral of fan Andrew Valdez, a local teen who lost his battle with cystic fibrosis last year.Ive never had to worry about him doing the right thing, coach Rich Rodriguez said. Hes a leader in the community. Hes our top service guy. I dont know if you can be a better role model for all of our players than Josh Kern.His teammates echoed the sentiment.People dont see the stuff that goes on inside of here, but like when we come home from a game and get off the bus, Josh is like, `Hey, you need you ride? Samajie, you want a ride? running back Samajie Grant said. Josh, even though he hasnt been playing like he wants to, is still bringing it every single day.At Colorado, quarterback Sefo Liufau pointed to junior cornerback Andrew Bergner, who joined the Buffaloes last season as a walk-on and provides the offense with a challenge during practice.Sometimes you cant always get the best looks from your scout team, sometimes you dont have the depth, Liufau said. Sometimes you dont have the players to go out there and give us a half-decent look. Hes done a really good job this year of going out there and playing ball.Some unsung heroes are players who paid their dues for years and were finally rewarded with a shot. At UCLA that guy is quarterback Mike Fafaul, a former walk-on who became a starter with Josh Rosen sidelined by a shoulder injury.A fifth-year senior, Fafaul was a scout team regular while the starting job was held by Brett Hundley and later Rosen. Last season he appeared in just one game.He learned hed make his first career start during warmups before the Bruins game at Washignton State on Oct. 15. In a 52-45 loss to Utah back the following week, Fafaul set school records for completions and pass attempts (40-for-70) while amassing 464 yards passing with five touchdowns.He got his first career win -- and the game ball -- last week when the Bruins defeated Oregon State 38-24.Hes everything that you want in a quarterback in terms of studying the game and it being serious to him, coach Jim Mora said.Sometimes an unsung hero can be a senior who has just worked unselfishly throughout his career. At Oregon State thats safety Devin Chappell, who has had to shift positions because of injuries that have struck the Beavers defense.Chappell,a walk-on transfer from nearby Western Oregon, started eight games last season, and this spring his teammates named him one of the captains.Devin is one of those guys. Hes a self-made guy, coach Gary Andersen said. He walked on, got a scholarship -- which was so important to him. Hes a good player in this league and hes proven. Hes a team captain and a great leader. He would definitely be labeled a grinder.Stanford guard Johnny Caspers, a fifth-year senior, is much like that, too, Cardinal Coach David Shaw said.Even before the coaches get to everybody, there are guys like Johnny Caspers setting the table saying, `Heres what were going to do. So theres a connection between the coaches and the leaders of the football team, Shaw said. When things are going well, Johnny is one of those guys who say `Hey, hey, hey, hey, we havent won a Super Bowl yet.

And just like that, the lights came on for English cricket. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys . For months it had been mooted, only to fade from likelihood as the season turned to autumn and the opportunity to fine-tune a radical concept came and went.But now, at the eleventh hour, with tickets for the 2017 season due to go on sale in two working days time, the ECB has taken the plunge on the strength of a three-day 2nd-XI fixture between Warwickshire and Worcestershire, some pioneering work from the MCCs World Cricket Committee and with Cricket Australias enthusiasm for the format rather forcing their hand ahead of the 2017-18 Ashes.A floodlit Test match at the height of the English summer holidays in the nations second most populous urban area will now take place at Edgbaston next summer against a team, West Indies, that might once have been considered the biggest drawcard in the sport.If you thought the ECB had made enough agenda-seizing announcements for one close season, you thought wrong. But following hot on the heels of last months fast-tracking of the city-based T20 format, and with Durham still cowering after their horse-whipping earlier this week, you scarcely needed to analyse the tone of Tom Harrisons ECB statement to recognise this move as the final panel of a very modern triptych.Its a great opportunity to attract more fans to the game and see how staging Test cricket in the afternoon and evening fits with working patterns and modern lifestyles, said Harrison. We think it can help attract different fans and families to Test cricket.Retrenchment on the one hand, re-evaluation on the other, the boards every move at present has, at its heart, the battle for crickets soul. It will be coming up on the 40th anniversary of Kerry Packers World Series Cricket when England and West Indies take the field at Edgbaston on August 17, and like children of the revolution, it is as if Packers most famous utterance, may the devil take the hindmost, has become the motto of the sports current rulers.That doesnt have to be taken as a criticism, by the way, although Durham in particular may be reluctant to see it in any other light right now. Packer, after all, was reviled for his rampant anti-establishmentarianism, but it barely needs pointing out how many of his innovations remain market-leading norms to this day, not least the notion of playing cricket under lights. The wonder is that it has taken half a lifetime to persuade the sports marquee format to countenance the same direction of travel.Reaction is destined to be mixed, for opinions and predilections have rarely been so fragmented in the modern game. For the record, there is no doubt in my mind that floodlit Test cricket has to be embraced, for the sake of a sport so defiantly behind the times that it sometimes seems to be volunteering itself for redundancy.But equally, it would be blasé to ignore the doubts that many of the worlds best players harbour when it comes to messing with the sports oldest and purest format. Alastair Cook, to name but one significant naysayer, is not enamoured, although his reservations stemmed specifically from the prospect of a pink-ball Ashes Test.A lot of the games have really good attendances, he said of the prospect of facing Australia under lights next winter. Its probably not a series where you need to do it.But therein, with apologies for taking Cooks words somewhat out of context, lies the point. The health of the Ashes is no barometer for the overall well-being of Test cricket, and that means it cannot be the rivalry by which to judge the merits of floodlit cricket either.And nor is the health of Test cricket in London - as evidenced by regular sellout crowds at Lords and The Oval, and referenced recently by MCCs president, Roger Knight, at the clubs AGM - any reason to extrapolate the sports rude health elsewhere in England.In fact, in 2012, Glamorgan - an Ashes host three years earlier - found the following years tourists, West Indies, such a hard sell that the club instead offloaded its fixture to Lords. The crowd for that rescheduled Test, Knight pointed out, ended up being larger than those at the other two grounds for the three-Test series - Trent Bridge and, yes, Edgbaston - added together.With that in mind, you can understand Harrisons enthusiasm for using a non-London venue as his day-night guinea pig. Cricket may be faring better in this country than in many other Test-playing nations, but that is all the more reason to shore up the sport while its strongest markets are still viable.But unfortunately not all non-London venues are equal in the current climate, and panel two of the ECBs triptych - their brutal and punitive treatment of one of the best cricket-playing clubs in the land - reveals the realpolitik at play in their recent chain of decisions. If the dangers of relying too heavily on one big payday were scrawled in red lettering across Durhams finances, then the reasons why the ECB chose to make an example of their struggles were tucked more subtly into the small print.Durhams inability to diversify - in particular to attract non-cricket activities, such as conferences and concerts, to supplement their income in the long winter months - was cited as the biggest reason why their debts became so unmanageable. But it also signed the Riversides death warrant as a venue of any merit in the ECBs brave new world. Whereas Birmingham City Council felt it worthwhile to offer Warwickshire a repayment holiday on debts in the region of £20 million - no doubt recognising the benefits to the local economy from major match-day tourism, among other perks - Durham County Council had no similar reasons to offer leniency on debts a fraction of the size.Notwithstanding the huge value that Durham retains as a production line for emerging talent, and as a first-class team of rare pedigree - and for all the beauty of the Riverside as a venue - it has failed the one test that no amount of revision could have enabled it to pass. Namely, it lacks the ability to attract passing trade. To be at the centre of an epoch-seizing buzz. To be relevant to more people than the 990,000 who currently attend cricket matches in England and Wales.In other words, it is not a city - let alone one with a population of 1.1 million that is about to host Englands first floodlit Test match in the height of the English summer, let alone one that has already preemptively rebranded its T20 team in the anticipation of future upheavals to the sport.Whether you accept or abhor the direction of travel, this particular gravy train is just pulling out of Birmingham New Street.

Star playmaker James Maloney admits his Cronulla teammates would still likely be haunted by last years playoffs thumping to North Queensland ahead of Fridays NRL preliminary final between the sides.And Sharks coach Shane Flanagan concurs that the heavy defeat will be on his players minds this week.The Sharks were beaten 39-0 in last seasons semi-final in Townsville as another finals campaign ended in abject disappointment.Maloney wasnt part of the Sharks set-up last year but the NSW playmaker knows plenty about the psychological impact losing big games can have.After winning the 2013 premiership with Sydney Roosters, Maloney has tasted defeat in the last two preliminary finals.Maloney said such crucial losses are hard to get over.It is probably in the back of their minds. It is not easy to forget things like that, Maloney said of his teammates at Sharks training on Sunday.I know some defeats we had (at the Roosters) that knocked us out still hurt.It will be there but that will only last so much. You can only carry emotion for so long.Once the game starts we have to put in a really good 80 minutes because we didnt do that against Canberra.The Sharks showed finals grit in last weeks qualifying win over Canberra, when they weere without captain Paul Gallen due to a back injury and fellow NSW representative Wade Graham went off with concussion early and didnt return.

We thought the form we carried up there from the South Sydney game was going to continue into that week but it didnt, he said.It is in the back of the mind of the players and we learned from it but I am not sure that it is driving us.We have more motivation and reasons for our drive. To get to that grand final is the first point and if we are good enough to get there, then to win the first one (for Cronulla), that is our drive.North Queenslands epic defeat of Brisbane on Friday night showed the premiers were not going to give up their title with out a fight, Flanagan said.It was typical of a side that has won the competition, Flanagan said.You are going to have to find that courage, spirit and determination at some stage during a finals series and they showed that the other night.

As a schoolboy, one of my favourite books was a collection of cricket stories. Cheap Shoes Online Australia . The tales were entirely fictional, of heroic last stands and match-winning bowlers specialising in donkey drops. The stories were as much about unusual people in exceptional circumstances as they were about the sport. Cricket lends itself readily to backstory and biography.White on Green, a follow-up to Peter Obornes excellent Wounded Tigers, promises to paint a mesmerising picture of the fascinating events and individuals that have shaped the enigmatic cricket of Pakistan. It promises the backstory and the biography of Pakistan cricket in the words of the protagonists and through the eyes of their contemporaries.The stories are varied and generally brief, perfect for sporadic attention. Prince Aslam, heir to the princely state of Manavadar in pre-Partition India, opens proceedings. He was a playboy cricketer who left a match once he had taken enough wickets to enjoy a party or attend to a girlfriend. He died lonely and sad.We hear the story of Master Aziz, who was separated from his 12-year-old son during Partition. While his son, Salim Durani, went on to play for India, Aziz mentored dozens of talented Pakistani cricketers, some of whom became greats.These, then, are as much tales of Partition and politics, of joy and loss, of the making and breaking of society and individuals, as they are of cricket and cricketers. In this sense, the political passions of the authors, Oborne and Richard Heller, shine through. What is cricket except a manifestation of the political and social evolution of a country?And these observations benefit from the view of outsiders, less entangled in the day-to-day machinations of navigating a life and a living in Pakistan. The authors share a love of their subject and a passion for detail. Forgotten lives and events matter to their besotted eyes.Here we find gems that matter. For instance, the story of Raees Mohammad, the fifth of the marvellous Mohammad brothers, four of whom played Test cricket for Pakistan. Hanif, the most famous of the brothers, died last week. Imagine family games of cricket in the Mohammads garden or on their verandah. Raees is called up too but misses out in what history will judge to be a heartbreaking injustice.What about Dera Ismail Khan, a name that will be familiar to anoraks? Dera played one first-class match and were beaten by Railways by a world-record innings and 851 runs. How did this happen? Was it, as the Wisden Almanack described, a case of Pakistans cricket board allowing teams with no first-class status to compete in first-class tournaments? Then theres Tauseef Ahmed, impressive offspinner and potential Lionel Richie impersonator. Tauseef blagged a role as a net bowler for Pakistans preparations for their first Test against Australia in 1980. Javed Miandad put him up in Zaheer Abbas hotel room, and when Zaheer rang the room to pick up his messages he was shocked to hear Tauseefs voice. Once Tauseef explained what had happened, Zaheer told him to stay.Following the net session, Tauseef returned to his club but received a call from a friend, a cinema owner from Bradford. He told me I was in the Test team. I didnt believe him, but he told me to go home and check. I found a crowd there and thought maybe there was something in it. Tauseef was indeed selected; the offspinner in the squad, Ilyas Khan, had been dropped. Only in Pakistan.We learn more about the cricketing lives of Billy Ibadulla, Duncan Sharpe, and Aftab Baloch. Perhaps most importantly of all, we discover the story behind the introduction of womens cricket to Pakistan, and the ignored tales of the survivors of the terrorist attack on Sri Lankas cricketers in Lahore.There is much to marvel at and revel in but you need to work hard to find it amid material that didnt make the final edit of Wounded Tigers. Some of the biographies of Pakistans cricketers are well known and whats new only forms a minor part of the story. Some chapters indulge the authors and their subjects.So enter with care. White on Green offers detail that you may not be seeking, about events that you might not care about. But for anybody with a love of cricket and cricketers lives, of how cricket and society intertwine, of Pakistan and its idiosyncrasies and injustices, this is a volume you might have dreamt about as a child.White on Green: A Portrait of Pakistan Cricket By Richard Heller and Peter Oborne Simon and Schuster UK 320 pages, £20 Cheap Shoes Australia Onine .

Robbie Farah says hell dig his heels in and play out his contract with Wests Tigers despite his broken relationship with coach Jason Taylor.The feud between the pair continues to worsen with Farah insisting hes being forced out of the club and questioning Taylors approach to coaching.Farah led the Tigers NSW Cup side to a 42-24 win over Newtown on Saturday at Leichhardt Oval, three days after being dumped for Sundays round 20 NRL clash against St George Illawarra at ANZ Stadium.It is the latest chapter in an almost year-long dispute between the pair, after Taylor told Farah he was free to exit Concord at the end of last season. Farah is contracted to the Tigers through 2017.I am entitled to stay. As long as I do that I will keep doing what is required of me, he said.I have done that the whole year and that wont change. However else I get treated is out of my control. All I can control is my actions and I will continue to train hard as I have always done.I will continue being professional and try and keep my mouth shut and try not to do anything wrong because I think that is what they are trying to get me to do.Farrah indicated he felt he had been dropped because of the ill feeling between the coach and himself. Wholesale Shoes Australia. Taylor denies that is the case. I have kept my mouth shut for the last couple of years and it is hard when you see stuff written about you, false stuff, and people saying stuff about you and I havent responded, he said.I have just kept copping it on the chin and become a sucker for punishment. I have sat back and really there is nothing to gain by me saying anything. I will let my football do the talking.I am a contracted player. They can treat me however they want and I will continue to do what is asked of me.Farah said he was trying to stay upbeat.I got put back to the bench a few weeks ago, I didnt kick stones, he said.I have done my best and tried to alter my game. Obviously it is unnatural for me considering what I have done my whole career.I can definitely say I have done my utmost to do what is required of me but it seems that nothing I do is good enough at the moment.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Stopped twice on dangerous chances earlier, Michael Frolik wasnt about to let Mike Smith deny him a third time. Wholesale Royals Jerseys .Frolik scored 49 seconds into overtime to give the Calgary Flames a 2-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday night.Frolik stole the puck from Brad Richardson after a faceoff in the Flames end and skated in at top speed and ripped a shot inside the post on Coyotes goalie Mike Smith for his team-leading sixth of the season.I saw a little bit more space outside to maybe go to the backhand, Frolik said, but last second I saw a guy coming across so I just tried to shoot it glove side and it went in.After a scoreless first period, Frolik had a great chance in the opening minute of the second but Smith jabbed out a pad to deny him from in close. Five minutes later, Smith throw up his glove and stabbed his snap shot from 20 feet out.Sometimes its frustrating when you have chances like that and it doesnt go in, Frolik said. But I just try not to think about it and just keep going and try to do a little better on the next shot.Matthew Tkachuk scored in regulation for Calgary, which snapped a three-game home skid. Chad Johnson started for the second straight night and finished with 20 saves.Tobias Rieder scored for Arizona and Smith, back after missing 12 games with a knee injury, stopped 22 shots.Rieder gave the Coyotes the lead with 18 seconds remaining in the second period as he pounced on the rebound of Justin Martinooks shot and buried it behind Johnson.Were turning the puck over too much and bringing trouble on ourselves, not generating very much and turnovers are making us play too much in our own end, Arizona coach Dave Tippett said.Calgary, limited to 13 shots through the first 40 minutes, tied it at 6:40 of the third as Tkachuk fired a shot from a sharp angle just above the goal line under the crossbar for his fourth.Any time a goal like that goes in is deflating for the whole team. Thats on me, Smith said. It could have been a 1-0 game and were feeling a lot different coming into the locker room tonight.Flames coach Glen Gulutzan continues to be impressed by the 18-year-old Tkachuk.It was one heck of a shot, Gulutzan said. There wasnt any room there. He made a big play. Hed been working all night, like he usually does. Im happy for him.The Flames controlled play ijn the third but couldnt get a go-ahead goal. Among Smiths stops in the period was a stick save on Dennis Wideman and a sharp pad stop on Troy Brouwer.After an uneventful and scoreless first period, Calgary went to the attack to begin the second. On the opening shift, Tkachuk shot wide on a partial breakaway, Smith jabbed out a pad to deny Frolik from in-tight and TJ Brodies wrist shot from the low slot was turned aside.Five minutes later, Frolik had another dangerous chance from in front only to be thwarted again, this time Smith throwing up his glove to stab Froliks snap shot from 20 feet out.It was the first game in what will be an extended stretch for Calgary without leading scorer Johnny Gaudreau, who underwent finger surgery on Wednesday after getting injured Tuesday night in Minnesota.Every guy recognizes that we lost a really good player and now collectively, we have to play a certain way to get ourselves in a position to get points in this league, Gulutzan said. Its certainly hurt us as a hockey club but we look at it as something we can rally around and try to find a true identity here.Sam Bennett took his spot on the top line with Sean Monahan and Brouwer.Game notes Linden Vey was inserted into the forward spot opened up by Gaudreaus injury. ...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Pekka Rinne doesnt want November to end.Filip Forsberg, James Neal and Ryan Johansen each had a goal and an assist to lead the Nashville Predators over the Dallas Stars 5-2 on Wednesday night.Rinne made 33 saves for Nashville, improving to 7-1-2 this November. After he made eight saves in the first, Dallas put 22 on the Finn in the second, and he denied them all. He stopped 3 of 5 in the third.They came hard that period, they shot the puck a lot, Rinne said of the second. For the most part, I was able to see it. I felt good all night, and that was a busy period. Obviously now looking back, that was a big period just being able to defend that.Mike Fisher and Craig Smith also scored for Nashville, winners of three of four.Patrick Sharp and Brett Ritchie scored and Kari Lehtonen made 16 saves for the Stars, who have lost two of three.There was a lot of good stuff in the game, Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said. Our energy was good. I thought the second period on, our breakouts coming out of our own end were good.Forsberg scored the games first goal with 5:08 left in the opening period. With the puck above the right faceoff circle, P.K. Subban sent a pass to Forsberg in the lower part of the left circle. There, Forsberg squeezed the puck in between Lehtonens right skate and the right post.It was a really nice play by Subby to find me back door and I just tried to hit the net, Forsberg said.It was Forsbergs second goal of the season. In 2015-16, Forsberg matched a franchise record with 33 goals.Subban has points in four consecutive games.Fisher doubled the lead with 3:54 left in the second. His initial attempt from the left side was blocked by Jason Spezza, but Fisher regained control of the puck, skated behind the net and beat Lehtonen with a backhanded wraparound.A lengthy video review determined the puck had completely crossed the goal line, giving thhe Nashville captain his fourth goal of the season. George Brett Jersey. Sharp got Dallas on the scoreboard at 5:32 of the third with a short-handed goal. It was the first of the season for Sharp, who missed 14 games with concussion-like symptoms before returning Nov. 17.Yeah, disappointing third period, Sharp said. We kind of put ourselves in a good spot there on the road trailing by one against a tough team. Its not a bad spot to be in, but a couple of mistakes ended up being the difference in the game.Johansen answered 41 seconds later with a power-play goal. Neal sent a pass from the left circle in front to Johansen, who had a tap-in for his second of the season.That was a really big goal, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. At that point, they had fired a lot of shots, a lot of attempts. We were on the power play and theres a chance to really blow it open, and we give one back the other way. I dont think there was much time left in the power play, maybe 25 seconds or so and to go out there, get it in and get it to the net, and score a goal and take back the two goals at that point I think was really important.The assist was the 200th of Neals career.Smith scored with 8:51 left off Forsbergs pass.Ritchie scored his sixth of the season with 1:16 left, but Neal answered a minute later with an empty-net goal.Game notes Nashville D Ryan Ellis played in his 300th career NHL game. ...

At the end of the first Test against Sri Lanka, Australia faced something like 25 successive maidens. Adidas Yeezy 350 Cheap . Was this a record? asked Brian Gladwin from Australia Steve OKeefe hit a four from the fifth delivery of the 63rd over of the final innings in Pallekele - his only scoring shot in 98 balls - to take Australia to 161 for 8, after which they faced 154 further deliveries (25.4 overs) without scoring a single run. OKeefe and Peter Nevill faced 138 of those (including the ball that dismissed Nevill), then OKeefe and last man Josh Hazlewood had 16 more. Such a scoreless sequence is easily a Test record - England went 92 balls without scoring, largely against Sonny Ramadhin and Alf Valentine, as they slipped to defeat against West Indies at Lords in 1950. Charles Davis, the assiduous Australian statistician, has pinpointed another possible similar barren run: on the first day of the first Test in Melbourne in 1882-83, Alec Bannerman and Billy Murdoch patted back 22 successive four-ball maidens from Billy Barnes, Dick Barlow and Willie Bates. Thats 88 deliveries without a run, and its possible it was as many as 92 in all.The four opening partnerships in the second Test in Sri Lanka managed just eight runs. Is this a record low? asked Stephen Anderson from Australia The openers certainly struggled in the second Test in Galle. Dimuth Karunaratne of Sri Lanka was dismissed by the first ball of the match, then Joe Burns fell to the second ball of Australias reply. In the second innings, Kaushal Silva fell in the second over with the score on 5, then Burns was again out in the first over, with three runs on the board. There have been two other instances of four opening partnerships adding up to eight runs in a Test: by England (5 and 3) and New Zealand (0 and 0, with Roger Twose bagging a pair) at Edgbaston in 1999, swiftly followed by West Indies (4 and 0) and Zimbabwe (0 and 4) in Port-of-Spain in 1999-2000. But the clear winner comes from another Caribbean Test. In Kingston in 2006, the opening partnerships for West Indies (0 and 0, with a pair for Chris Gayle) and India (1 and 1) amounted to just two runs.At Edgbaston England trailed by 103 runs on first innings, yet won by 141. Is this the biggest turnaround by runs in a Test? asked Richard Shavei-Tzion from Israel Well, there have been three Tests which were won by a team which followed-on - by England against Australia at Sydney in 1894-95 and at Headingley in 1981, and by India against Australia in Kolkata in 2000-01, so I suppose those would be the biggest turnarounds of all. But England at Edgbaston last week provided only the eighth instance of a team winning by more than 100 runs after being more than 100 behind on first innings - and England were also the last to do it, against New Zealand at Lords last year. It happened twice in the 12 months before that, as well: Sri Lanka beat England by 100 runs at Headingley in 2014 after being 108 behind on first innings, while New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by 193 in Wellington in 2014-15 after trailing by 135. The first instance was in 1931-32, when Australia (160 behind on first innings) beat South Africa by 169 runs in Melbourne; South Africa turned the tables in Johannesburg in 1966-67, defeating Australia by 233 runs after trailing by 126. India in Kolkata in 2000-01 trailed by a whopping 274 runs, but won by 171 after the heroics of VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid, and finally Australia beat Sri Lanka by 197 runs in Galle in 2003-04, after starting their second innings 161 adrift. Yasir Shah now has 90 wickets from 15 Tests. Is this a record? asked Nigel Cooke from Jamaica Despite his relative lack of success in the second and third Tests of the current series - he struck only once at Old Trafford, and three times at Edgbaston - Yasir Shah still has more wickets after 15 Tests than anyone else in history. The 19th-century England pace bowler George Lohmann had 89, while his contemporary Tom Richardson totalled 88 from just 14 Tests in all. Sydney Barnes, Clarrie Grimmett and Vernon Philander all had 87 wickets after 15 Tests. Lohmann took 12 wickets in his 16th match, against South Africa in Johannesburg in 1895-96, so Yasir has his work cut out in the final Test at The Oval if he is to stay ahead - and equal Lohmanns record for the fewest matches required to reach 100 wickets.New Zealands 582 for 4 in Bulawayo was apparently their highest total against Zimbabwe. But was it also their highest total away from home? asked Joan Fernandes from the UAE New Zealands 582 for 4 in the second Test in Bulawayo at the weekend improved their highest total against Zimbabwe, which was set all of a week earlier - 576 for 6, also in Bulawayo. Before that their highest against Zimbabwe was 495 for 7, in Napier in 2011-12, which also led to an innings victory.
