Moments after his Brooklyn Nets teammates ran out onto the court to congratulate him following their 100-98 overtime win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, Johnson could only shake his head at scoring only 13 points on 6-of-19 shooting.St Louis and Sacramento could be home to MLS clubs as soon as 2020, according to the leagues commissioner Don Garber. Garber says those two cities are the front runners and that other candidates, in priority order, were Detroit, San Diego, San Antonio and Austin, Texas, and Cincinnati.The commissioner visited California last week, where the Sacramento Republic of the third-tier United Soccer League released renderings of a proposed 25,000-seat stadium, while St Louis NFL team the Rams are relocating back to Los Angeles. What held us back in St Louis for 20 years is we never had a viable stadium, Garber said. Now were talking to a group of investors and were able to capitalise on the Rams leaving. We take a look at the top five goals from round 7 of the MLS season. Tedric Thompson Jersey. So there is a site where its ready. St Louis is a very, very high potential market, and one of the things that makes it more strategic for us is its proximity to Kansas City.Sacramento is MLS ready. Theyve got 9,500 season tickets, good in any pro sports league. Theres not a lot of competition there, and we seem to do better in those markets with less competition. Theres an ownership group thats solid.He said he told the Republic the last piece of the puzzle was for the team to obtain commercial commitments and sponsorships.Garber said he received a call this week from Cincinnati FC owner Carl Lindner, whose team started to play in the USL this season.He said, When can we come into MLS? Garber said. I said, youve got to wait a while. Weve been at this a few years. Just two good weekends doesnt necessarily mean youre going to have a sustainable fan base.The MLS, which opened in 1996, currently has 20 teams, with Atlanta due to join in 2017 and a second Los Angeles team the following the year. Minneapolis-St Paul also has been awarded a team and could open in 2017, and the league hopes David Beckhams tentative Miami team could start play in 2018.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Carlos Henderson Youth Jersey . -- Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been cleared to play in Saturdays wild-card playoff game against Indianapolis after sustaining a concussion against the Colts two weeks ago. Bowe was among several starters held out of last weeks overtime loss at San Diego. Kansas City could be without right tackle Eric Fisher, the No. 1 overall pick in last years draft. He strained his groin near the end of Tuesdays practice and was not working Wednesday. Outside linebacker Tamba Halis status also remains up in the air. Hes been dealing with some inflammation in his knee that has kept him out of practice the last couple of weeks, though he planned to try working out during Wednesdays practice. Jake Butt Youth Jersey .

This was one of them. Omar Infante homered and tied a career high with six RBIs to carry the Kansas City Royals over the Baltimore Orioles 9-3 on Sunday.TORONTO -- Ontarios Liberal government admitted Tuesday that the original $113-million security tab for Torontos 2015 Pan Am Games was just a "place holder" number, and warned the latest estimate of $239 million could go higher. The Toronto 2015 Pan Am organizing committee came up with the figure because they had to put something in the bid book that helped secure the international event for the city, said Tourism Minister Michael Chan. "The $113 million was presented a long time ago, in 2010, and it was a place holder because security has to be there," said Chan. "You probably will appreciate TO2015 doesnt have the skills, they dont have the expertise, they dont have any knowledge about security." Saad Rafi, who took over as the CEO of the TO2015 Pan Am organizing committee after Ian Troop was fired, said he wasnt involved when the citys bid was prepared and couldnt say where the $113 million estimate came from. Officials wouldnt have had a good handle on the number of athletes and coaches that would be coming or how many venues would be used and in what communities when they prepared the security estimate for the bid book, added Rafi. "I think a myriad of elements and factors go into generating an estimate of costs," he said. "If you want a more detailed answer Im afraid we couldnt give it because we werent there to submit the bid book." The Opposition demanded Chan resign or be fired after the security bill for next years Games more than doubled. "The minister and this government and TO2015 and everyone involved in these games doesnt have a clue whhats going on," said Progressive Conservative critic Rod Jackson. Demarcus Walker Jersey. "They cant answer a straight question in the House on this, and it seems like no cost is too high." Chan bristled at suggestions he should have known what the original $113 million estimate for security at the Games was based on. "I wasnt there," he said. "Do you really want to know why they had that number in there? Theres probably a reason for that." The $239-million tab for security will likely change before the Games start in July 2015, but could go down or up, added Chan. "Anybody who thinks that number will be stationary, will not move, I think that would be unreasonable because we still have a year and five months before the Games and lots of things can happen," he said. "And that number can go down if we control costs, or security may go up. This is the nature of the Games." Rafi announced the Games were on schedule and on budget so far, and admitted one of his biggest concerns was getting people interested in the Pan Am competitions. "We want to engage the public and create a sense of excitement which will drive their participation in festivals as well as the Games themselves," he said. "We want to make sure we can maximize our ticket revenue." The 2015 Pan Am Games will take place at 34 different competition venues across the Golden Horseshoe, from Niagara in the south to Orillia in the north, running from July 7 to 26, followed by the Parapan Am Games Aug. 7 to 15. The total budget for the Games is now estimated at $2.5 billion. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

MILAN, Italy -- Roma maintained its perfect start to the Serie A season with a 2-0 win at Sampdoria on Wednesday and took sole lead of the table after Napoli was surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw at home to Sassuolo. Sean Harlow Youth Jersey . Two-time defending champion Juventus abject start to the season continued as it had to come from behind for a controversial 2-1 win at Chievo Verona, while AC Milan again scored twice in the dying minutes to draw 3-3 at Bologna. Mehdi Benatia scored a stunning first goal in Italian football for Roma and Gervinho sealed the result. The capital club has won its opening five matches and moved two points clear of Napoli and Juventus. "Im happy with our five consecutive wins, but Im more interested in entering the history books at the end of the season, not now," Roma coach Rudi Garcia said. "Its too early to evaluate everything, but Im happy for the squad. I have a fantastic group and thats important for the future." Elsewhere, Lazio bounced back from its derby defeat to Roma to beat 10-man Catania 3-1. In other results it was: Parma 4, Atalanta 3; Torino 2, Hellas Verona 2; and Livorno 1, Cagliari 1. Napoli had won its opening four matches, while Sassuolo was the only team without a point in Serie A and was still reeling from a 7-0 defeat at home to Inter Milan on the weekend. Napoli took the lead in the 15th minute when a cross was cleared straight at Blerim Dzemaili, who lashed it into the bottom left corner from 25 yards. Sassuolo had scored just one goal in its opening four matches and Simone Zaza was again the scorer five minutes later, firing into the roof of the net from a tight angle following a Jasmin Kurtic through ball. And Sassuolo held on for its first ever Serie A point. The result means that Roma is the only team still with a perfect record following its victory against Sampdoria. Roma was struggling to break down a resilient Sampdoria defence and Garcias frustration got the better of him as he was sent to the stands 10 minutes into the second half for his protests. Benatia broke the deadlock 10 minutes later with a wonderful solo effort. The Morocco striker wove his way through the Sampdoria defence, beating four players on his way into the penalty area. He then tripped but fired home as he fell. Gervinho also scored his first Serie A goal after he was sent clear by Francesco Totti, two minutes from time. Sampdoria winger Antonino Barilla was sent off for a second booking in stoppages Milan was unbeaten at Bologna since 2002 but had endured a miserable start to the season with just four points from as many games and was missing the suspended Mario Balotelli as well as a number of injured players. It took the lead in the 12th minute when Andrea Poli fired Robinhos smart pass across goal into the bottom left corner but Diego Laxalt levelled for Bologna in the 33rd following a swift counter. Milan missed a series of incredible chances and Laxalt -- who is on loan from the Rossoneris bitter rival Inter Milan -- headed in Lazaros Christodolopoulos cross seven minutes into the second half to put Bologna in front. Cristaldo also celebrated his first Serie A start with a goal, extending Bolognas lead shortly after the hour with a diving header into the bottom right corner following Alessandro Diamantis cross. Phillipe Mexes had a shot crash off the crossbar and it seemed as if Milan was heading for a third defeat of the season. However, Milan had recently come back with two late goals at Torino to secure a draw and it did so again. Robinho pulled one back in the 89th and played a part in the equalizer two minutes later. The Brazilians header was saved but the rebound ricocheted to Ignazio Abate to snatch a share of the points. "I believe that before Christmas we will be in another position," Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri said. "The other teams have started well and we have dropped points, but the team is growing and I have faith in my lads. I know that it wont be easy to finish in the top three but we have everything to go for it. "Im not disappointed with how we played. But I am angry because after the 3-3 we gave away the ball and risked conceding a fourth. They are things that should not happen. I am satisfied, but we arent converting even 30 per cent of our chances and that cant happen either." Juventus struggled to carve out opportunities in Verona and Chievo took a shock lead in the 27th minute. Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon made a rare mistake, clearing a ball straight to Gennaro Sardo, who crossed in for Cyril Thereau to fire into the bottom left corner with a side-footed volley. Juve levelled less than two minutes after halftime. Chievo goalkeeper pulled off a fantastic save to parry Fabio Quagliarellas header from Paul Pogbas cross. Quagliarella then drove the follow up onto the crossbar but eventually managed to scramble it into the back of the net. There was controversy three minutes later. Another mistake by Buffon saw him only parry Simone Bentivoglios shot. Alberto Paloschi fired in the rebound but was harshly ruled out for offside, sparking furious protests. The assistant referee had appeared to mistake Paloschi for Thereau who had been in an offside position. Juventus took the lead in the 65th when Alessandro Bernardini dived onto Pogbas cross and turned it into his own goal. Takkarist McKinley Youth Jersey .James scored 29 points, including 16 in the first quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers broke a four-game losing streak with a 106-74 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday night. Takkarist McKinley Womens Jersey . Only it wasnt the extended right pad of his old teammate Jonathan Bernier early in the final frame, it was James Reimer, who stole a night that was supposed to belong to the former King.NHL and NHLPA executives are expected to announce on Friday the details of the rekindled World Cup of Hockey, a tournament that will feature eight teams, including two unconventional ones. Besides Canada, the U.S., Russia, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Finland, the league and union will announce a European All-Star team will participate. That team will be stocked with players who come from countries other than those participating as nations. Also, the tournament will feature a team with North American players under the age of 23. An executive with an NHL sponsor confirmed the details to TSN. The tournament will also feature a best-of-three final, which will help to drive up the broadcast and sponsor rights for the tournament both in North America and Europe. The National Hockey League and its players association have told team executives they hope to generate between $75 million and $100 million from the rekindled World Cup of Hockey. A person familiar with the matter told TSN that the tournament, which is scheduled to be held in September 2016, will raise about half its revenue from the sale of broadcast and internet streaming rights. The NHL and NHLPA have predicted those rights may garner close to $50 million. Its a gamble to spend so much on a tournament like the World Cup when theres no guarantee Team Canada will advance beyond the round robin portion. But if it does, there could be a big payoff in TV ratings. The final of the World Cup will be a best-of-three format, TSN has learned. Besides TV rights, the NHL and NHLPA will also sell sponsorship rights to the World Cup. They anticipate selling to eight premier corporate sponsors and negotiating deals of at least $1.5 million in each category, a source told TSN. The NHL and NHLPA will also garner revenue from ticket and merchandise sales. However, its expected that the NHL and the Players Association will have to pay Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment at least $5 million for hosting the three-week tournament. While executives with the Montreal Canadiens wanted to host some of the World Cup games at the Bell Centre, the NHL and its players union decided to host all of the games in Toronto. That way, if the tournament is a success, they could auction off the rights to host the gamees in 2019, perhaps, to the city that offers the best revenue guarantee - be it Montreal, New York, Stockholm, Moscow, or another city. Duke Riley Womens Jersey. To be sure, there are still many unanswered questions about how much profit the NHL and players union will generate from the World Cup. They need to pay for insurance for all of the players. Typically, the NHL and the Players Association buy premiums that offer better coverage than simply career-ending policies. Payouts are rare, but they do happen. The Islanders John Tavares, for instance, was covered by an insurance policy when he was injured during the Winter Olympics earlier this year in Sochi, Russia. The Islanders were compensated by an insurance company for the time he missed. Its unclear how much insurance will cost the NHL and NHLPA. Then Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson said last August that it would cost at least $1 million simply to pay for insurance for the 47 Canadian players invited to Team Canada workouts in advance of the Winter Olympics. NHL player agent Allan Walsh said some NHL players have been skeptical over whether its a good idea to steer away from the national team concept. Some players believe this should be limited to players playing for their country, Walsh told TSN. What are you playing for if its Team Young Guns or European All Stars? What are you playing for? Thats a problem. Its an issue. Walsh said featuring a young guns team particularly could lead to lopsided scores. The downside is that team gets pounded, Walsh said. I dont think it would have an impact on the players psychology or career - just an impact on the legitimacy of the team in the tournament, when people sit back and say whether this kind of team was a good or bad idea. Still, Walsh and other agents said there could be a great payoff for the league from marketing a team built around young stars like Nathan McKinnon, Connor McDavid and Jonathan Drouin. Walsh said that while some fans have called for the NHL and NHLPA to include teams from Slovakia or Slovenia, that might not be practical, since the tournament is run by the league and its players association - both of which want to use the event to build the profile of their own players, not those playing in leagues overseas. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

CLEVELAND -- Justin Masterson found the strike zone after a rocky start and pitched seven scoreless innings as the Cleveland Indians ended Bostons seven-game winning streak, beating the Red Sox 3-2 Monday night. Zach Banner Youth Jersey . Masterson (3-4) walked four in the first three innings, but settled in and won for the first time in five starts. He allowed just three singles, struck out a season-high 10 and retired 12 of his last 13 batters. Lonnie Chisenhall hit a two-run single in the first off John Lackey (6-4) as the Indians won their fourth straight. Xander Bogaerts hit a two-run homer in the Boston eighth off Bryan Shaw to make it 3-2. Indians left-hander Marc Rzepczynski retired David Ortiz for the final out in the eighth, and Cody Allen worked the ninth for his fourth save. Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew went 0 for 2 with a walk in his season debut. He re-signed with Boston as a free agent last month. Boston outfielder Grady Sizemore was hitless in four at-bats -- he popped up for the final out -- in his return to Cleveland. Sizemore was a three-time All-Star in nearly eight seasons for the Indians. Cleveland improved to an AL-best 19-11 at home. Masterson was two different pitchers against the Red Sox. His wildness had him flirting with danger in the first and third innings, but he managed to pitch around trouble both times. Masterson needed 61 pitches to get the first nine outs, but he struck out the side in the fourth on just nine pitches. Masterson retired eight in a row before Ortiz singled through Clevelands shift in the sixth. Masterson induced A.J. Pierzynski to hit an inning-ending double play for the second time. Its been that kind of season for Masterson, who has struggled with his control and has not pitched like the All-Star ace the Indians are counting on. Unable to do anything against Masterson, the Red Sox finally got on the board in the eighth when Brock Holt singled with one out and Bogaerts followed with his fourth homer, a shot into the seats in right-centre. Chisenhalls two-out single gave the Indians an early lead. He has eight RBIs during Clevelands winning streak. With runners at second and third, Chisenhall took Lackeys pitch the opposite way, dropping his single just inside the left-field line. The Indians went up 3-0 in the third when Michael Bourn led off with his fifth triple and scored on Asdrubal Cabreras single. Masterson managed to work in and out of a mess he created for himself in the first. The right-hander gave up a single and two walks before striking out Jonny Gomes, who took exception with plate umpire Phil Cuzzis called third strike on a low fastball. In the third, Masterson gave up a one-out single to Dustin Pedroia and walked Ortiz on four pitches before he got Pierzynski to hit into a double play. NOTES: Indians C Carlos Santana, on the seven-day concussion list, took groundballs as he continues working toward a return to the lineup. Manager Terry Francona said Santana, who has been in a hitting slump all season, could be cleared and back on Friday, when the Indians open a series in Texas. ... Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz (sprained left knee) is with the team and threw a bullpen session. He will throw another Wednesday before a simulated game on Saturday. ... With Bostons roster loaded with left-handed hitters, the Indians recalled reliever Nick Hagadone from Columbus. Cleveland entered the series with three lefties: Hagadone, Rzepczynski and Josh Outman. Zach Banner Colts Jersey . In the late match, Shinji Okazaki scored two goals to pace Mainz to a 3-2 victory at Werder Bremen. Goals from Milan Badelj, Maximilian Beister and Hakan Calhanoglu ended Hamburgs two-match losing run and kept Hannover winless in seven games. Malik Hooker Jersey .ca.

Stephan Leblanc and Kasey Beirnes had four goals and two assists apiece, Colin Doyle had three goals and four assists, Rob Hellyer scored once and assisted on seven, and Ethan OConnor and Scott Johnson also scored for the Rock (4-3).

BRASILIA, Brazil -- Christine Sinclair celebrated her 200th appearance with Canadas womens soccer team with a goal in a 2-0 win over Scotland at the Torneio Internacional de Futebol Feminino on Thursday. Brendan Langley Broncos Jersey . The goal was the 147th of Sinclairs career, and she could have had two if her penalty shot in the first half wasnt saved. "The win felt incredible and that was the most important thing to come out of today," said Sinclair. "Not only the victory but the way our team played, I thought it was the best weve played all year." Adrianna Leon opened the scoring just eight minutes into the game on a volley off a headed pass from Sophie Schmidt. Sinclair was robbed of a penalty right before halftime when Scottish goalkeeper Gemma Fay dove to her right to make the save. "Ive missed a few. It happens," said Sinclair. "I think its my third or fourth miss with the national team. John (Herdman) said, You didnt want to score with a penalty anyway, you wanted a real goal." Sinclair would have her revenge 13 minutes into the second half when she was played in on the left side and had plenty of time to put the ball past Fay, who was one-on-one against Sinclair. Canadas next game in the tournament takes place Sunday when they take on Chile before rounding out the group stage against the hosts. Carlos Henderson Broncos Jersey . There will be no Down Under four-peat for Djokovic, as the eighth-seeded Swiss slugger Wawrinka outlasted the second seed 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 9-7 at Melbourne Parks Rod Laver Arena in yet another five-set thriller in their burgeoning rivalry. Chad Kelly Womens Jersey . -- The Windsor Spitfires were left with just one goaltender Tuesday after having their starter walk out on them midway through Game 3 of their Ontario Hockey League playoff matchup with the London Knights.CLEVELAND -- Yordano Venturas dominating performance Friday night produced plenty of superaltives. "He was extraordinary," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said after the rookie right-hander pitched 8 1-3 stellar innings in the Royals 7-1 win over the Cleveland Indians. Ventura (6-7) blanked the Indians on four hits until Michael Brantley hit a leadoff homer in the ninth. He was pulled after Jason Kipnis one-out single. Ventura allowed six hits and struck out four in the longest outing of his career. Indians centre fielder Michael Bourn had one of the hits off Ventura, a double in the eighth. "Well he throws 100 (mph), first of all," Bourn said. "He has a good changeup and a good curveball. We had a couple chances but for the most part he was on tonight." Mike Moustakas, who hit a three-run homer in the sixth gave Kansas City a 5-0 lead, was also impressed with Ventura. "Hes got such electric stuff," Moustakas said. "Thats what hes capable of doing." Salvador Perez and Christian Colon, making his first major-league start, had three hits apiece while Lorenzo Cain snapped an 0 for 11 skid with an RBI single in the third and a run-scoring double in the fifth. The Royals, who are a major league-best 11-2 on the road since June 2, rode Ventura to their latest win away from home. He retired the first 10 hitters before Brantley singled with one out in the the fourth. Carlos Santanas single moved Brantley to third, but Kipnis bounced into a double play. Ventura entered the ninth with 103 pitches, making it an easy decision for Yost to let him start the inning. "I wanted to throw the complete game shutout, but I couldnt do it," Ventura said through teammate Bruce Chen, who translated for the pitcher, "I was getting ahead of the hitters early in the game. They made some really good plays behind me and that gave me a lot of energy." Ventura, who finished with 113 pitches, came within two outs of recording Kansas Citys first complete game of the season. "I wasnt going to take him past 120 pitches," Yost said. "After the home run it was like, OK the next guy who gets on thats it. He pitched very well." Josh Tomlin (5-6), coming off a one-hit, no-walk, 11-strikeout performance against Seattle, allowed five runs and 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings. Mousstakas homer to right on a 3-2 pitch broke the game open. Garett Bolles Womens Jersey. The rally began on singles by Perez and Alcides Escobar. Colon, a late addtion to the lineup when second baseman Omar Infante was scratched with lower back tightness, was 3 for 4, including a triple in the second for his first major league hit. Colon added a double in the fifth and an RBI double in the ninth. "That was a lot of fun," he said. "I was taking my ground balls (in pregame activities) and was told I was going to play." Ventura has allowed three runs in 21 innings in three career starts against Cleveland. He held the Indians to one run in seven innings in a 4-1 win on June 11 in Kansas City. Ventura gave up two runs and seven hits in four innings Los Angeles Angels in his last start, an outing that was cut short by a four-hour rain delay. He had pitched seven innings in each of his previous three starts. The Royals, who are second in the AL Central, are 3-1 on a nine-game road trip and lead third-place Cleveland by four games. The Indians, who opened a 10-game homestand, have lost four straight at home after winning 11 of 12 at Progressive Field. Cleveland was swept by Detroit in a three-game series June 20-22. Tomlin turned in the best performance of his career against the Mariners last Saturday. He retired the first 12 hitters before allowing a leadoff single to Kyle Seager in the fifth, Seattles only baserunner. Tomlins gem marked the sixth time an Indians pitcher recorded 11 strikeouts with no walks in a shutout over the past 100 years. It was also only the third time since 2002 that a pitcher has recorded a one-hit shutout with at least 11 strikeouts and no walks. Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon was hitless in four at-bats and is in a 2-for-36 slump. Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera was 0 for 4 and is in a 4 for 35 skid. NOTES: The Indians announced the game as a sellout, their third of the season. ... Indians C Yan Gomes, a native of Brazil, wore his countrys soccer jersey during batting practice. He kept an eye on the scoreboard, which showed Brazils 2-1 win over Colombia in the World Cup. ... Raul Ibanez, signed by the Royals on Monday, started in right field. He made an awkward sliding catch on Gomes line drive in the fifth. ...

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Adrian Peterson Jersey .ca. Hi Kerry, I just watched the finish to the Jets-Blues game on Monday night and saw the brouhaha between both teams after the final horn went off. The breakdown of penalties was as such: 19:59 Winnipeg -  Olli Jokinen: 10 minutes, misconduct19:59 Winnipeg -  Olli Jokinen: 2 minutes, roughing19:59 Winnipeg -  Jacob Trouba: 10 minutes, misconduct19:59 Winnipeg -  Dustin Byfuglien: 2 minutes, roughing19:59 Winnipeg -  Dustin Byfuglien: 10 minutes, misconduct19:59 Winnipeg -  Dustin Byfuglien: 2 minutes, roughing19:59 Winnipeg -  Blake Wheeler: 10 minutes, misconduct19:59 Winnipeg -  Blake Wheeler: 5 minutes, fighting19:59 St. Louis -  Roman Polak: 10 minutes, misconduct19:59 St. Louis -  Maxim Lapierre: 10 minutes, misconduct19:59 St. Louis -  Maxim Lapierre: 2 minutes, roughing19:59 St. Louis -  Ryan Reaves: 10 minutes, misconduct19:59 St. Louis -  Ryan Reaves: 2 minutes, roughing19:59 St. Louis -  Barret Jackman: 10 minutes, misconduct19:59 St. Louis -  Barret Jackman: 5 minutes, fighting Kerry, the game was officially over and done with - why were penalties still assessed? Why not just break the two sides up and call it a night? Just wondering. Brian Nicholson,Edmonton Brian: The referees job is to impose penalties for violations of the rules whenever they occur throughout the course of a game; including after time has expired on the game clock signaling the end of the match. The authority empowered to the referees over the game participants do not end until all players and coaches have left the ice and are safely in their respective dressing rooms. The scrums and ultimate fighting that began in the dying seconds of the game and continued well after the final horn was part of the game and could not be ignored by the game officials. They could not turn a blind eye to it and say it never existed. Even though the game was effectively over, the officials must continue to police the game participants. The job is never done until the paper work has been completed! An automatic fine of $100 is incurred to a player assessed a misconduct penalty (rule 22.5). Failure by players to clear the area of a fight shall, in addition to the other penalties that may be assessed, result in a fine to the team of $1,000 and the coach of said team in the amount of $1,000 (46.18). Rule 31.9 (viii) states that the Referee shall report to the Commissioner promptly and in detail the circumstances surrounding any unusual occurrence that takes place on or off the ice, before, during or after the game. Should rule 28 supplementary discipline be invoked, it does not bode well for the Officials if penalties were not assessed following a major altercation even though the rule stipulates additional fines and suspensions can be imposed whether or not such offense has been penalized by the Referee. It is also important to note that a whistle was blown to halt play as a result of the altercation and prior to Chris Porter depositing the puck in the Jets unattended net with .01 seconds on the game clock. As a result of the whistle stopping play the goal was not allowed to stand. A "ceremonial face-off" is no longer required to complete the game when player aggression such as this takes place just prior to final horn. Only after breaking up the two sides and imposing the appropriate penalties Brian, are the officials authorized to "just call it a night!"     Adrian Peterson Saints Jersey . THE THUNDER & PACERS BENCHES: In a nutshell, not impressive at all. Ryan Ramczyk Womens Jersey . It will be their 15th head-to-head meeting and fourth in the post-season (Sunday at 2pm et/11am pt on CTV) and for his part, Brady isnt downplaying just how big the game is for him. "Im excited - Its everything you could ask for as an athlete," the New England Patriots quarterback told WEEI Radio in Boston on Monday.Stevo, Brian Carney, Phil Clarke, Barrie McDermott and Bill Arthur give their verdict on who will win the Grand Final. Warrington and Wigan will battle it out at Old Trafford on Saturday in a bid to be crowned Super League Champions. Wigan are looking to avoid three successive defeats in the final, while Warrington will be desperate not to lose two finals in six weeks after their Challenge Cup loss to Hull FC. Warrington face Wigan in the 19th Super League Grand Final on Saturday night. Who will lift the trophy? Courtesy of RFL Kevin Sinfield, who has won the Grand Final seven times with Leeds, says its just too close to call and believes there are arguments for why both sides are able to win. However, we put our pundits on the spot and asked them to pick a winner... StevoNot much in it between both sides who both have the potential skills to win. Hooker Daryl Clark is key for Warrington and Wigan cant afford for him to take control at dummy half. Hes fast, creative and clever. Daryl Clark is a key man for Warrington, says Stevo But he will be wasted if the forwards cant give him the momentum he needs, because he can be negated by playing behind a beaten pack.Wigan will apply their usual tough hit em hard game in the opening twenty minutes to try and disrupt Warrington and force them into errors.If the Wolves can absorb that early pressure I feel they have the skill factor to go on and win. Wigans power game is hard to stop and could give young George Williams the room to create havoc.Either way, if you are a gambling man then have a bob or two on both Clark and Williams for man of the match.  Barrie McDermott Wigan Warriors Matty Smith celebrate scoring a drop goal against Warrington This promises to be the tightest final in years as the teams who finished first and second in the table go head-to-head.My heart says Warrington, but my head says Wigan. There is nothing to choose between the players - the engine room has Chris Hill and Ashton Sims versus Ben Flower and Frank-Paul Nuuausala in a battle of brawn. While Matty Smith and George Williams versus Kurt Gidley and Declan Patton is a battle of the brains.We are in for a crackerjack of a game. It might not be from a piece of finesse, so it might come down to who wants it more that gets the team over the line.With a hairs breadth between them, Im going for a Warrington win in exttra time! Brian CarneySaturdays Grand Final is a case of the known against the known unknown. Alex Anzalone Saints Jersey. With Wigan you know what youre going to get - the same structured attack that has served them so well over the last six years, but is in decline.When the Warriors have to chase games they move away from that structure and look a much better side. They are committed, coherent and aggressive in defence and are the most consistent performers from first minute until last, but will that be good enough on Saturday? Chris Sandow is back for the Wolves With Warrington youre never sure what youre going to get. We have seen glimpses of how lethal and resilient they can be, and two games in particular stand out.The first was their win at Catalans, one week after losing the Challenge Cup final, and the other was when they won the league leaders shield at Hull.Warrington travelled to the KCOM without Chris Sandow, Kurt Gidley, Ben Currie and Ben Westwood. Declan Patton and Stefan Ratchford played in the halves and they won 23-6.The problem with Warrington is they can contrive to lose a game while 14 points and a man up. If the Wolves played with the same consistency as Wigan no-one would touch them.Trench warfare favours Wigan and they will more than happy for Saturdays Grand Final to descend into that kind of game. Its something Warrington must avoid if they are to be crowned champions for the first time in 61 years.Phil ClarkeWhen two great teams meet Ive often said that it comes down to the bounce of the ball. Its a rugby cliche that was applicable when the two teams last met at Old Trafford in 2013.A Matthew Smith kick was charged down early in the second half, if it bounced in one direction it would most probably have led to a Warrington try, and most probably a win. It instead bounced back to Smith and Wigan went the length of the field very quickly to score. Ben Currie is consoled by head coach Tony Smith following their Challenge Cup final loss It was the turning point in my mind but Warrington know that they can never relax against Wigan. Theyve lost out when theyve had a 14-point lead in a Grand Final, and theyve lost with a 14-point lead three weeks ago, playing against 12 men.I think that there is very little between the teams and it would not surprise me if, like the £1million match, it went into extra time.Bill ArthurWigan - tough, mean, aggressive, never say die attitude, capable of hanging in there and snatching the win, as proved at the HJ last month. But missing key players with big night experience. Will Sean OLoughlin be back for Wigan? Warrington - creative, fast, unpredictable, good defence, players in key positions in form and have edged it in meetings with Wigan this season.Which to me suggests a Warrington win - but only just!You can watch the Super League Grand Final, Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the Japan Grand Prix on Sky Sports.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Vern Mikkelsen, a Hall of Fame basketball player who won four NBA titles with the Minneapolis Lakers, has died. Larry Sanders Jersey . He was 85. Mikkelsen died on Thursday night surrounded by family, the Los Angeles Lakers announced on Friday. He was a six-time All-Star during 10 years with the Lakers, teaming with George Mikan and Jim Pollard in a frontcourt that to this day is considered one of the best the league has ever seen. Though he was known for his hard-nosed defence, Mikkelsen averaged 14.4 points and 9.4 rebounds in his career and emerged as one of the leagues first true power forwards. He was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 1995. "I was a good basketball player, but I attribute greatness to those individuals who sacrifice their time, talents, and efforts for the benefit of others," Mikkelsen wrote in the forward to "The Vern Mikkelsen Story," which was published in 2006. "I did some of that, too, though not nearly as much as I would have liked to, looking back on it." Arild Verner Mikkelson was born in Fresno, Calif., in 1928 and grew up in the northern Minnesota town of Askov, about 95 miles north of Minneapolis. He played college ball at Hamline in St. Paul, at the time a basketball power that sent two other players to the Lakers as well. Mikkelsen was drafted in 1949 and helped lead the Lakers to championships in 1950 and three in a row from 1952-54. One of the leagues original enforcers, Mikkelsen was a physical player and fouled out a record 127 times before retiring in 1959. "He was the protector of Mikan," said Wolves president Flip Saunders, who got to know Mikkelsen during 10 years as a coach in the organization. "He loved being around here. And he was one of the best story tellers." He was later the coach and general manager of the ABAs Minnesota Pipers. "Vern was one of the first in a long line of great Lakers players, and a key link to our franchises early years in Minnesota," Lakers President Jeanie Buss said in a statement. "We appreciate his contributions to the Lakers and our legacy, and we send our condolences and best wishes to his family." Mikkelsens name hangs in the rafters at Staples Center on a banner that also is home to the retired jerseys in the organization. Mikkelsen remained a revered figure in Minnesota long after his playing days, a gracious story teller who remained close to the game long after he retired. In his later years, Mikkelsen overcame two strokes, diabetes, prostate cancer and the death of his wife of 47 years in 2002. And he remained upbeat through it all. "Keep on doing your best with what you have to work with, as we all have an obligation to take care of ourselves and live as long as possible, respecting each day as a great gift with the intention of sharing the simple, meaningful things of life with family, friends and our community," Mikkelsen wrote. He was influential in bringing the NBA back to Minnesota in the 1980s and the Timberwolves planned to hold a moment of silence to honour him on Friday night before they played the Brooklyn Nets. "During his playing days at Hamline University and the Lakers, Vern was a dominant force on the court and one of the games great power forwards," the Wolves said in a statement. "Vern was a great friend to our organization and we offer our condolences to his family." Miles Plumlee Jersey . The best round belonged to Pat Perez. Tiger Woods didnt come close to claiming either Thursday in the Farmers Insurance Open, where the seven-time champion failed to break par in the opening round for first time in his career. Giannis Antetokounmpo Jersey .com) - The Ottawa Senators will try to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they face the Chicago Blackhawks who are trying to secure their place in the post-season.Andrew Luck, legend killer, meet Tom Brady, best ever. Luck emerged victorious from the AFC Divisional Round, disposing of his predecessor with the Colts, Peyton Manning, while also potentially ending the 39-year-old’s illustrious career on a losing note. Coming out ahead in the much-anticipated first postseason meeting between Luck and Manning was a big step in the 25-year-old’s growth as can’t-miss kid. It also means Luck’s early playoff prowess exceeds Manning’s. Manning made the playoffs twice in his first three years with the Colts at the turn of the century, never making it farther than the Divisional Round. Luck meanwhile, has been playoff-bound all three years of his early career and will have at least a conference championship on his resume. Manning was neverr known for postseason competence however, so a better comparison could be drawn with another of the ‘elite’ quarterbacks in the league. Tyler Ennis Jersey. That comes Sunday. Luck is on his way to building a legendary career; Tom Brady is on his way to cementing one. Brady is already in the conversation as best quarterback of all time, but another Super Bowl appearance would strengthen his case. With a win against Sunday, Brady would hold alone the most Super Bowl appearances by a QB at six and would have a shot to join Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw with the most Super Bowl wins by a QB with four. That, combined with Brady’s other accolades, would make as strong a case as any for the two-time MVP’s bust to greet you in the quarterback wing of the Hall of Fame. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Quique Sanchez Flores future at Vicarage Road hangs in the balance despite guiding Watford away from danger and into 12th position in the league. Donnel Pumphrey Jersey . The club owners issued the dreaded vote of confidence in midweek and even a strong finish to the season might not be enough to keep his job.Aston Villa have one last chance to stop their run of defeats matching the club record of 11 set in 1963, but they head into the game having lost 25 games already this season.

Mauer struck out to end the inning, with a runner on third base in the seventh on Wednesday and the Twins trailing 1-0. Everybody does this, of course, in a sport with a 30 per cent success rate at the plate long proven to be a benchmark of excellence. Failures this year have piled up for Mauer faster than usual for the six-time All-Star, three-time American League batting champion and one-time AL MVP. "Im a heck of a lot more frustrated than they are," Mauer said that night, when asked about those jeering fans. The sound of those boos has been jarring, considering hes the hometown guy from St. Paul with the handsome looks and the hitting skills to build a .321 career batting average, the best among all active players in baseball with at least 3,000 plate appearances. Minnesotans are fiercely proud of and protective of their natives, so Mauer figured to have a lifetime pass in the popularity department here. After signing that $184 million, eight-year contract extension in 2010, though, he has become a more-frequent target of criticism from fans frustrated by the teams struggles the past several years. The 28 home runs he hit in 138 games in 2009 were a one-year wonder. Lingering lower-body injuries limited him to 82 games in 2011. This season, his on-base-plus-slugging percentage was at a career-low .704 entering the weekend series in New York. Mauer is also on pace to blow by his career-high strikeout total of 89 set last year. "I feel pretty good actually, which is even more frustrating," he said. Rasul Douglas Youth Jersey. . "Im hitting a lot of balls hard and just not having much to show for it. So hopefully that turns here soon." Mauer isnt the only one sputtering with the Twins. The teams batting average with runners in scoring position fell to .214, the second-worst in the league, after losing three of four games to Texas this week. "Were putting together a lot of good at-bats but still not driving people in with runners in scoring position. Thats the main focus, getting guys on, but we cant get them in," second baseman Brian Dozier said. Mauer reluctantly gave up his job as the catcher to better protect himself from another concussion, after missing the final six weeks of last season following a foul tip that hit him in the head. The loss to the Twins of Mauers intelligence and defence behind the plate was supposed to be trumped by an increase in his availability and production at a less-taxing position. He missed five games with back spasms earlier this month, but since then he said he feels fine. The problem has been these paltry totals: nine extra-base hits and 15 RBIs through Thursday. "The expectations are very high for him. People get frustrated. I just dont want Joe to get frustrated. I know he is a little bit right now, because he doesnt have the results he wants. But I dont want to put any more pressure on the guy," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "I just want him to just keep being himself, keep swinging, and hell be fine." ___ Dave Campbell on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/DaveCampbellAP Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

STUTTGART, Germany -- Top-seeded Tommy Haas beat Ernests Gulbis of Latvia 6-0, 3-6, 6-4 to join two other Germans in the Mercedes Cup quarterfinals on Thursday. Jaleel Johnson Womens Jersey . The 35-year-old Haas is the oldest player in the top 100 and is looking for his second title of the year. Haas won another tournament in Germany, in Munich, also on clay. Haas cruised through the first set, but Gulbis bounced back in the second. In the decider, Haas broke serve to win the match as Gulbis slammed a forehand into the net. "There are days like that, I could feel that he couldnt find his rhythm in the first set but I was also struggling. This was my first match after Wimbledon, switching from grass to clay," Haas said. "In the second, he got some first serves in and they are difficult to return. But I also served well at the end." Haas will next play fifth-seeded Fabio Fognini of Italy, who overwhelmed Leonardo Mayer of Argentina 6-1, 6-3. Fourth-seeded Benoit Paire of France also won his second-round match by beating Nikolay Davydenko of Russia 6-3, 6-1. Paires quarterfinal opponent will be Victor Hanescu of Romania, who beat Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil 6-1, 6-4. Hanescu levelled his record against Bellucci to 1-1. Paire advanced to the quarterfinals in Stuttgart for the first time, having twice lost in the second round previously. In other quarterfinals, Michael Berrer of Germany faces Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain, while second-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany meets Gael Monfils of France. Ben Gedeon Vikings Jersey .

Keenum will make his first appearance in a regular-season game against the rugged defence of the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, where the fans just set a Guinness record as the noisiest outdoor stadium in the world.TORONTO a€“ Coaches, parents, agents, friends, teammates, they all keep telling Morgan Rielly the same thing and hea€?s tired of it. The 20-year-old Maple Leafs defender doesna€?t believe, even remotely, in the myth of the sophomore jinx despite everything hea€?s heard about it. They all keep telling him to lower his expectations, to prepare for the dip many experience in their second twirl through the NHL, to simply shoot for the status quo of a standout rookie year. Rielly rejects it. He wants more and is determined to prove it. a€?Therea€?s people trying to say a€?just try to do what you did last yeara€? but I want to try to improve this year and I want to try to make a difference on this team, try to be a leader,a€? said Rielly in conversation with TSN.ca. a€?Ia€?m not going to be okay with being good or average, I want to be even better.a€? Rielly doesna€?t buy the questionable rationale of the sophomore slump. He doesna€?t think therea€?s any reason his play should dip after a rookie trial that saw him get better and better over the course of 73 games. Whata€?s to stop him from taking all that he did and learned as a first-year player and improving upon it? a€?Absolutely,a€? he says before repeating the word once more. a€?Absolutely. Therea€?s always players that have those slumps, wea€?ve talked about that. Ia€?ve heard all about that stuff, but therea€?s plenty of players that have had great years after their first year; like Drew Doughty, like Kris Letang, have all had really good [sophomore] years. I think thata€?s what Ia€?m trying to focus on. Ia€?m not trying to focus on the guys that have had slumps. I want to be like the guys that have had great years going into their sophomore years.a€? He keeps hearing, though, that he should be prepared for the falloff, the advice trickling in from all walks of life. And while Rielly appreciates the sentiment, he also has no intention of limiting himself in a year that kicks off in less than a week. He wants to tell them all a€“ coaches, parents, agents, teammates, all of them a€“ that he can handle himself, that hea€?ll be just fine. Sophomore or not, hea€?s going to improve. He knows Doughty did it. The Kings cornerstone and 2014 Olympic hero leaped from six goals and 27 points as a rookie to 16 goals, 59 points, and a Norris Trophy nomination as a sophomore. Letang, near the top of Riellya€?s hockey idols, virtually doubled his production from year one to year two; six goals and 17 points as a Penguins rookie to 10 and 33, not to mention a dominant playoff run. But even Riellya€?s head coach here in Toronto, Randy Carlyle, treads carefully around the subject. Hea€?s told Rielly as much. a€?When I chat with Randy he always told me to just not have high expectations and just try to come back this year and try to do what I did last year,a€? Rielly said of his conversations with Carlyle. a€?But I mean I dona€?t know if thata€?s my personal goal. I think I want to make improvements in a whole lot of areas. Ia€?m going to try to do that this year, just try to get better every day and just keep learning. Ia€?ve only played one year so Ia€?ve got lots of room to learn and improve.a€? Carlyle is fearful of thrusting too much on the shoulders of his young defender, especially in a market that tends to swallow its own. a€?I dona€?t like to put any pressure on a young player, specifically a second year player because we all have heard of the sophomore jinx,a€? he said. a€?I would rather caution ourselves and tread against giving him too much too early; just get his feet underneath him and do what he did last year until hea€?s very comfortable.a€? Rielly learned a lot in that first year, so much that he doesna€?t know where to start when questioned on the subject. What stands out first, he said, is just how difficult the league is, how it will eat you up in a hurry if youa€?re not ready for it. There are no nights off. a€?In junior,a€? he says, a€?you could just not play great, but I could always get by a€“ score, get an assist, it looks fine. Playing in this league, if youa€?re not playing the best that you can the whole building notices. I think thata€?s one thing, just because the players are so good that if you make one mistake ita€?s probably going to end up in the back of your net. So youa€?ve got to be on point and if youa€?re not, people are going to know.a€? That means learning to perform when the legs dona€?t feel so great, when a cold is kicking inn, when youa€?re tired from the third game in four nights. Pat Elflein Vikings Jersey. Ita€?s about battling through those things, he says. A surprise to even make the team out of training camp last fall, Rielly got noticeably better with each passing practice, game and day. It was apparent in his swagger on the ice. He was joining the rush with more frequency in February and March. He was taking more chances. He was using the gifts that allowed him to be picked fifth overall in 2012 to stand out on many more nights. If therea€?s one specific area for personal improvement this season, ita€?s in the defensive zone. Rielly, like the team at large, is intent on retrieving the puck quicker, finishing plays more decisively, winning more battles, anything that will allow him and his teammates to spend less time on defence and more time on the attack. He had 27 points as a rookie, two more than Seth Jones, the player picked fourth overall by Nashville in 2013. Peter Horachek, spent a great deal of time behind that Predators bench as the teama€?s No. 2 to Barry Trotz, the since-deposed and now Washington Capitals head coach. He and Trotz shared a rich history in developing NHL defencemen, particularly the two players who would come to define much of the franchisea€?s history: Shea Weber and Ryan Suter. Horachek speaks with admiration for Weber and Suter, calling them friends to this day. He doesna€?t believe in putting limits on emerging young talent. He wants them to learn from their mistakes, grow to be better because of those mistakes. And like Rielly, hea€?s definitely not a believer in that whole jinx thing. a€?His development is limited to himself,a€? said Horachek, the still-new Leafs assistant. a€?Therea€?s no limit. Hea€?s limited only by his maturity of where he is and his decision-making. I hopefully can help him make good decisions and he can continue to grow. a€?I dona€?t believe in any superstitions or second-year jinxes,a€? he continued. a€?Why would a guy not have a good second year? Is it because he relaxes? He doesna€?t train as hard? He feels like Ia€?ve made it, I dona€?t have to be on edge all the time? Every player, no matter if theya€?re in the fifth year or second year, [has] to be ready to play and focus. Thata€?s part of their maturity and mental development is saying Ia€?m ready to practice today, Ia€?m going to do a little bit more today in practice.a€? Rielly, who played just under 18 minutes a game last year, spent most of the offseason back home in Vancouver where he trained alongside Mike Santorelli, one among the newer crop of Leafs. The two have been training together for years, met at the gym when Rielly was still in the 10th grade. a€?Hea€?s a bit more quiet than I am so he keeps me focused,a€? Rielly says of Santorelli, nearly a decade his senior. Rielly kept his workouts the same as in yearsa€? past though he insists on feeling stronger and quicker this fall, his already NHL-ready frame continuing to grow. His drive to improve crosses many paths. He continues to pick the minds of more experienced teammates, searching for tips and bits of advice that will help him conquer his second NHL season. He and the teama€?s captain, Dion Phaneuf, had dinner together recently and discussed such things. Phaneuf was a Calder Trophy finalist as a rookie, busting out of the Red Deer Rebels junior ranks with 20 goals and 49 points for the Flames. He followed it up with 17 more goals and 50 points a€“ numbers Rielly can recount off the top of his head. a€?Ita€?s not really hard-hitting stuff,a€? Rielly says of his conversation with Phaneuf, a€?but he told me what he experienced. He was experiencing exactly what Ia€?m dealing with. He just tried to give me some advice, give me some confidence and have some fun with it.a€? Phaneufa€?s wisdom hinged on confidence and belief in onea€?s own ability. He advised Rielly to ignore what was being said, to brush off the crowing of a furious hockey market that scowls when Phil Kessel goes more than three games without scoring. a€?He told me to not worry about what everybody else is saying,a€? Rielly said. And that, it would appear, is what Rielly is intent on doing. Hea€?s going to ignore the calls for a sophomore slump, ignore rationale that says he should stay the same, ignore anything thata€?s going to keep him from getting even better, from remaining merely good. What does getting better mean? a€?Hard work,a€? he says abruptly. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

GLASGOW -- Montreals Marie-Eve Beauchemin-Nadeau has captured a gold medal in womens weightlifting at the Commonwealth Games. Quincy Wilson Womens Jersey . Beauchemin-Nadeau, a silver medallist four years ago in New Delhi, finished with a combined total of 250 kilograms, a Games record in the 75-kilogram division. "I knew the record was attainable, and I knew that I was aiming for it even on the first lift," she said. "I was prepared for this." Beauchemin-Nadeau lifted 110 kilograms in the snatch and 140 kilograms in the clean and jerk. "It was a great afternoon, I was very happy with my performances," she said.
