    Phil Kessel spent six years in Toronto trying to lift the Maple Leafs out of the churn of mediocrity. All the goals - 181 of them while wearing a leaf on the front of his sweater - failed to turn Toronto into a contender or quiet the critics who wondered whether the talented forward cared enough or worked hard enough to justify his status as one of the elite players in the NHL. ''He was always the guy, he was a guy that was blamed when things weren't going well, and he doesn't have to be the guy here,'' Pittsburgh general manager Jim Rutherford said.

    Venus Williams is no longer the player she once was, on account of the passage of time and the day-to-day ups and downs of an energy-sapping condition. At age 35, 21 years removed from her first professional tournament, Williams still possesses a dangerous serve, along with the muscle memory that comes with seven Grand Slam singles titles, five at Wimbledon. ''She probably comes back here and, you know, I think, she almost feels like this is home,'' said David Witt, Venus' coach.

Dipoto told the Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register on Wednesday that he has quit after 3 1/2 years with the Angels, but manager Mike Scioscia and Angels spokesman Tim Mead repeatedly declined to acknowledge any changes ahead of a team meeting before their game against the New York Yankees. Scioscia and Dipoto previously have clashed over philosophical differences during the GM's tenure, and the latest dispute reportedly concerned Dipoto's desire for the Angels…

    The Phoenix Suns have reached an agreement with forward Tyson Chandler on a three-year, $52 million contract and agreed with Brandon Knight on a five-year, $70 million extension, people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Chandler averaged 10.3 points and 11.5 rebounds while providing a defensive and locker room presence for the Dallas Mavericks last season. The 15-year veteran has averaged 8.8 points and 9.3 rebounds in a career that included stops in Chicago, New Orleans, New York and two one-year stints with the Mavericks.

You may be asking yourself, “Why is this a post?” Well, the answer is because obviously the “HE’S BACK” hot takes will begin to flow on social, media when we all know that is far from the truth. I know, I know. It's only Wednesday. It's just a pro-am. But Tiger Woods just hit every fairway and every green on the front-nine.

    The New York Times published a recipe for guacamole with peas. A few Twitter residents responded extremely, priming their followers who reacted extremely. It snowballed. Media outlets swooped into the fray. Pea guacamole has become a full blown thing. Even the POTUS took notice. This controversy, or whatever you wish to term it, is asinine. The recipe is avocado guacamole with added pea puree. The author acknowledges this is a “radical” idea. Peas don’t alter the texture. Peas don’t alter the taste much, except perhaps making it sweeter. Most of the taste is coming from the…
  • The Mets Made Bobby Bonilla Deal Because They Thought Madoff Money Would Last Forever

    Ryan Glasspiegel
    1 Jul 2015 | 12:50 pm
    Today, as you may have heard, is Bobby Bonilla’s payday. The former Mets slugger receives $1,193,248.20, as he has every July 1st since 2011, and will continue to do until 2035. At this annual event, the Internet rises up as one to laugh at the Mets. All told, this is relatively fair, but not necessarily for the reasons that initially come to mind. The Mets made a deal to pay 8% interest to Bonilla instead of paying up $5.9 million for two reasons: They were constantly banking more than that through investments with Bernie Madoff, and they needed the immediate cash for acquisitions.

  • Packers | Richard Rodgers to see more snaps?

    1 Jul 2015 | 1:53 pm
    Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers could see more playing time in 2015, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. Rodgers played 528 snaps, while fellow TE Andrew Quarless played 695 snaps. Demovsky said he wouldn't be surprised if those numbers reversed this season. Footballguys View: Even if it is Rodgers that gets more snaps this year, the Packers tight end position will not produce a fantasy relevant option. The wide receivers will dominate targets, and the team has good enough depth to keep wide receiver primary if one of the starters goes down. Rodgers was a curious third pick last year…
  • Vikings | Adrian Peterson has nose for end zone

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has score double-digit touchdowns in every season of his eight-year NFL career. Last season is the exception as he only played in one game due to allegation of child abuse. When Peterson has played at least 12 games, he has scored at least 10 touchdowns. From 2007 to 2013, Peterson averaged 12.29 touchdowns per season. Footballguys View: Peterson has taught us to not let typical human performances be the bounds of our expectations when it comes to his production. He hasn't had a good QB since Brett Favre in 2009, when Peterson scored 18 rushing touchdowns…

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's decision-making, fundamentals, footwork and his inability to find open receivers are all reasons why Griffin isn't good enough to be successful in the NFL, in the opinion of ESPN NFL analyst Mark Brunell. Footballguys View: The franchise seems reluctant but resigned to starting Griffin to begin the season, and well, we'll see where it goes from there. He doesn't seem to have the support of head coach Jay Gruden, and only the repeated failures of once coveted backup Kirk Cousins has kept Griffin atop the depth chart. Colt McCoy could be the caretaker…

I talk to him all the time. We're always talking about the game. We're always talking ball. We're always talking routes, concepts, and what we're going to do during the game, and hand signals, all those things. He is a football junkie.

  • A LOOK AT COLLEGE FOOTBALL ATTENDANCE: WHO'S BREAKING THE FIRE CODE?

    1 Jul 2015 | 7:18 am
    AND WHO'S PLAYING IN FRONT OF A GHOST TOWN The NCAA recently released its attendance figures for 2014, and they've left Akron President Scott Scarborough extremely unimpressed, given that the school built a new stadium six years ago but had the lowest total attendance in FBS for the 2014 season. Scarborough should take comfort in two things. First, as he likely knows, attendance statistics get fudged all the time (like, for instance, in 2013 when Akron bought 56,000+ tickets itself). Second, total attendance is a pretty unsophisticated statistic. A better number would be to look at…

    A LOOK BACK AT A TRULY DELIGHTFUL MOMENT OF RIVALRY ASSWHIPPIN Normally, Erase This Game sticks to faceplants from the last ten years or so. Those are the losses that stand out more strongly in our minds, and they're much more likely to have clips online. When we picked Ohio State as this week's subject, several recent embarrassments emerged as possibilities. There was the 35-3 loss to USC early in 2008, where the Buckeyes only gained 28 yards of offense in the second half. There was 2009, when #7 Ohio State lost to unranked Purdue thanks to some of the dumbest turnovers you've ever seen.

    WHY DO WE ADD ONE SECOND TO THIS DAY, AND DOES IT MATTER AT ALL? Today, Earth's official time as measured by atomic clocks will have one extra "leap" second. What explains this tiny addition? We explain. Why do we need the leap second? While we believe the Earth's rotation on its axis to be regular, it isn't - the rotation's actually slowing down, very gradually, due to competing gravitational forces between the Earth, Sun, and Moon. Rather than calculate the actual rotation time every day, scientists pick certain points to add on an additional second to make up the difference. Simply…

    Computer security is an inescapable topic these days. Frequent hacks of employers, retailers, and healthcare institutions have put millions of us in the line of fire for identity theft.

Scammers prey on individuals who love sports and are willing to lay down cash for purchases that reflect their fanaticism; their commitment to a team or favorite player. Fearing that a rare, autographed item at the “right” price will get away, a frenzied fan often exits an auction with what he believes to be a little piece of history. However, instead of being signed by his favorite sports figure, what he has actually purchased is a replica of the real thing. Without proper…

    Ohio State safety Vonn Bell had a phrase he used last season when he garnered an interception. Bell referred to those takeaways as “money balls.” If the interceptions were actually worth any sort of cash consideration, Bell would have been richer than any other Buckeye on defense in 2014. Bell’s six picks led all Ohio State players. “It’s just having a knack for the ball,” Bell said last season. “I always wanted to be a ballhawk and always wanted to make plays for this defense.” But the Buckeyes as a team would have fared pretty well, too. Ohio State recorded 25 interceptions…

Mistakes are part of the game, and there is no such thing as perfection. You can always do better, and you can always improve. Problems occur when errors weaken an athlete’s confidence and mental focus.

    Last night, prior to Game 4 of the 2015 NBA Finals, Head Coach Steve Kerr of the Golden State Warriors, made a change in his starting line-up.  He replaced Andrew Bogut with Andre Iguodala. That move along with a change in defensive strategy and a change in his substitution rotations, made all the difference in the world. Although the Cleveland Cavaliers got off to a 7-0 start, Kerr did not panic nor throw out his game-plan.  Instead, the Warriors called a time-out, quickly bounced back and finished the quarter by outscoring the Cavs, 31-17.  Kerr made a crucial decision, but…

This Super Bowl was a lesson in putting yourself in the best possible position to win.  Both teams did so much to make themselves champions.

    For over a decade, college football discussed the idea of having a playoff system which finally came true this year, but it was not without controversy. I’m not talking about bad calls and questionable plays. What I’m talking about is the behind the scenes legal issues. First, it doesn’t take the best patent search attorney to find a patent filed in 2000 for a playoff system (patent US6053823 A). Like most patents, it’s a stupid one clearly designed to cash in on someone else who plans on using it. Playoffs have been in sports long before the patent was even issued,…

    With the rise in recognition of digital currency, there can become the necessity to ensure all those coins are retained securely. The coins themselves are normally safe, even so, the genuine hazard to the wallet is the theft of a private key, or a password to obtain the private key. A wonderful way to retain coins protected is by utilizing “cold storage” to hold the private keys out of the reach of any person looking to get a hold of them. A bitcoin paper wallet is a public and private key for an address that is physically produced. By obtaining the physical object, there is…

  • Sox Squeak Out a Win; Have a Nice 3 Game Win Streak Going

    shelley
    1 Jul 2015 | 6:59 am
    The Red Sox took on the Blue Jays once again, this time with rookie Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound.  It’s been reported that in his last outing that he was tipping his pitches, so a lot of attention was paid to that during his outing last night.  Rodriguez seemed to do well and left the mound in line for a win.  The bullpen made it dicey, but they were able to squeak out a win. The Sox were able to score two runs in the 1st inning without the benefit of a hit.  Betts got on by way of an error and then with the bases loaded both Napoli and De Aza were walked to have the Sox up 2-0.

    The Red Sox headed north of the border for a 4 game series with the Toronto Blue Jays.  The Sox had their ace Clay Buchholz on the mound vs. knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.  Buchholz has definitely been the shining star of the rotation in the last month and he continued it with an 8 innings, 1 run performance last night to bring the team to victory. Buchholz has always liked pitching in Toronto and that trend would continue last night as he put on a stellar performance in the series opener.  Buchholz would also get just enough run support to easily coast to victory.  The Red Sox would be the…

    The Red Sox came into the rubber game hoping to squeak out a win.  The Sox recently named Justin Masterson as the starter when they sent Joe Kelly down to Pawtucket.  Masterson hasn’t started a game in 6 weeks and had been added to the bullpen for depth until the recent change.  Masterson wouldn’t have an easy opponent either with Chris Archer who has the lowest ERA in the American League.  Masterson got the job done though and Archer gave up 3 homers in his 6 innings of work. The Red Sox got on the scoreboard first by scoring two runs in the 2nd inning.  Pablo Sandoval hit a…

    The Red Sox faced off with the Rays again on Saturday in hopes of grabbing their 2nd win in a row and taking the series.  The Sox had Wade Miley on the mound who has had some pretty decent outings recently.   Miley didn’t pitch poorly, but with no run support he got the loss after giving up a homerun in the 5th.  In fact the Rays scored all their runs in Saturday’s game by way of the home run.  The Sox offense was only able to get one of those runs back and dropped the middle game of the series. Wade Miley kept the game scoreless against Rays pitcher Matt Andriese until the…

The Sox got on the scoreboard first when they scored two runs in the 2nd.  De Aza hit a RBI double and then Jackie Bradley Jr hit an RBI sac fly.  Sox 2-0.  The Rays got one of those runs back in the bottom of the 2nd when Porcello gave up an RBI…

    Jose Aldo is 25-1 in his career. He won the WEC featherweight championship in 2009 and has been the only one to hold that belt since he and it transitioned to the UFC in 2011.

Due to the recent influx of international players and youngsters declaring for the draft after one or no years of college experience, there are many unproven diamonds in the rough to be plucked late in the draft.

Utah’s offensive line returns most of their starters from last season minus Junior Salt and Jeremiah Poutasi. The right side of the line will most likely be held down by guard Salesi Uhatafe 6’4…

The other player is the kickoff coverage player. The Breakdown: You have probably noticed that many times on the kickoff return, the unit gets their hands on the opponent, but they don’t want to move their feet. The kickoff coverage player’s main objective is to bowl over the blocker. In order to do this, the kickoff coverage player needs to be in a good fit position, he needs to move his feet upon contact, and…

But what really needs to happen in a shock and lock on that blocker, with the defender finding where the ball carrier is going and then ripping off of the blocker to make the tackle on the ball carrier. The Special Teams “Butt & Press” is a great drill for block protection or block destruction. This is a complimentary drill to the “Hard Turn” Avoidance Zone Drill, as in this special teams drill, we have an opportunity to work with the defender on using…

  • Hide and Seek Team Defense Drill

    Coach Pat
    29 Jun 2015 | 4:00 am
    Communicating in transition is especially important, with the margin for error shrinking due to the fact the defense is not set. This drill gives us a chance to practice all of the skills we’ve learned in halfcourt and apply them to a full court transition situation. Setup Have five offensive players lineup on one baseline, […] The post Hide and Seek Team Defense Drill appeared first on Online Basketball Drills.

    The two most important things to keep in mind when attacking any zone defense are spacing and ball movement. If you can force the defense to slide back and forth across the court, eventually you’ll be able to find a crack in their armor. But it doesn’t matter how fast you’re moving the ball if […] The post Zone Offense appeared first on Online Basketball Drills.

    What can I say? CaddyShack is a cult classic with some raunchy humor. It truly speaks for itself.  First of all, it’s soooo 80s. It stars Rodney Dangerfield and of course, Bill Murray and Chevy Chase who were young breakout stars of Saturday Night Live at the time.  This movie has so many classic lines and it’s comic genius. Golf fans will both love and hate the gopher.   It’s probably not a film you want to watch with young kids but teens and up will get a good laugh ab workout.  Check out the trailer…     The post #TBT CaddyShack appeared first on…

Miguel Sano, the freakish third baseman in the Minnesota Twins organization, is the latest to get the call, reports MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger.

Florida had been in on the discussion for Pronger’s $4,941,429 cap hit during the NHL Draft, but instead they’ll add Savard’s $4,027,143 number to help keep them well beyond the salary cap floor. The key for the Panthers is that Savard is only owed $575,000 in salary in each of the next two seasons. …

    Are you an asset to your team or a liability? Are you a solution to your team or a problem?  If you’re a problem, don’t plan on four stellar years playing College ball (if you get an opportunity to play at all).

On one side you have the players that are all-in, they bust their butts in practice, do things right and work to be part of the solution and the standards of their sports program.

  • One Handed Catching?

    Eric Van Tassel
    17 Jun 2015 | 1:36 am
    Ever since the spectacular, one handed catch in the end zone last season by New York Giant’s wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., you see it being talked about everywhere.  You can even find acrobatic, two handed catches while performing a backwards summersault all over YouTube!  Are these spectacular feats?  Yes, they certainly are but I can only imagine receiver coaches such as myself, all across the country, pulling their hair out because one handed catches go against the fundamentals we constantly preach and that is to “use both hands to catch a football”!  What is a…
  • 10 Traits of Mentally Tough Athletes

    Brad DeHaven
    28 May 2015 | 9:06 pm
    There is no doubt, mental toughness is one of the most important traits of an athlete. Another word to describe mental toughness is ‘GRIT.’ It’s the ability to work hard, to push yourself to your limits, and to respond resiliently to adversity or laziness. What do you do when you just don’t feel like working-out? Mental tough athletes have a response for feelings of laziness, entitlement, or the feeling of ‘being owed’ something without having to pay for it… and that response is they FIGHT BACK with the traits listed below. It doesn’t matter if you are on a quest to lose 10…
  • What Are You Doing This Off-Season?

    Brad DeHaven
    9 May 2015 | 12:37 am
    It’s easy to argue that off season training is the most important phase of any football skills and conditioning plan. Not only will it help the athlete to recover physically and psychologically during the season, it will be hugely important to neurological and physical development of any player. 1. Neurologically, off-season training is where you can consistently repeat your basic technique movements (based on your position: backpedal, throwing, catching, etc.) thus developing the groves in your brain that make a skill ‘second nature’. This is where you can master your craft…

    As a swimming coach I have always tried to coach the swimmer rather than the stroke, the reason for this is that everyone is an individual and there is no one size fits all. As soon as I start to tell swimmers to do this and that or that they have to look like that swimmer then problems would start to occur. There are many things out there on the web nowadays that claim they have the key to the perfect stroke! Well I am here to tell you there is no such thing a perfect stroke.

    This year marks the 10th birthday of WordPress.com and our parent company, Automattic. We are proud to have served this community of millions: from writers, photographers, artists, and small and large publishers, to business owners and entrepreneurs. A quick bit of history: WordPress itself started as an open source project in 2003. WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg then built our company, and the free, hosted version — WordPress.com, what you see now — opened for business in the summer of 2005. Ten years, 2.5 billion posts, and 3 billion comments later, Automattic is stronger…

  • NBA Draft: Filled with Uncertainty

    Darla
    26 Jun 2015 | 5:47 pm
    The NBA Draft took place on Thursday, and the one word that sums up the event is uncertainty. Before the Draft, teams waffle back and forth on what players they should choose. During the Draft, most players are uncertain as to which team will select them. Fans are also filled with uncertainty following the Draft, as they wonder if the players joining their favorite team will end up being the right fit. When I look at the parallel of life and faith, I realize that uncertainty can lead to anxiety and frustration. We usually want definitive answers to circumstances that are filled with…

    If you’re like me, you loved the inspiring, entertaining, and intriguing movie, The Blind Side. Surprisingly, Michael Oher, whose story the movie is based, is not as positive about it. This week, he said the movie has had an impact on the amount of criticism he receives as an NFL player. Oher commented, “People look at me, and they take things away from me because of a movie. They don’t really see the skills and the kind of player I am. That’s why I get downgraded so much – because of something off the field.” I’m sure there are some great benefits of having a story told…

    Stacie
    22 Jun 2015 | 3:38 pm
    One aspect of the game parents often ask for help on is hitting. Specifically, “How do I get my daughter to hit better in games?” Well, if she’s hitting fabulously in practice and struggling in games, one thing is obvious… The way she approaches practice (mentally) and the way she approaches games are completely different. This is where the problem lies. So how can you help her be more relaxed in the game like she is in training or more intense in training like she is in the game? Well, if you’re not the coach and don’t control her training environment,…

    Coach, You will ALWAYS have critics. Stay focused on why you do what you do and on what matters most! When you get defensive, you look guilty, or like you lack confidence in what you do. And maybe you do. Maybe you ARE doubting your own ability. But responding to frustrated critics rarely does you any good or helps you feel better about yourself or what you do. Stay focused on the players, on what you want to help them accomplish/learn, on your mission and vision for any player you have the honor of working with. You’re not out there for the critics! You’re out there for the KIDS.

This will include a strict diet that the squads must abide to ensure they are in the desired shape. We have been finding out a bit more about what Rugby players eat on a daily basis. Data gathered from World Sports Food suggest that the average man usually eats 3,000 calories per day, the stars from this year’s World Cup will be consuming 50% more than that by scoffing on 4,500 calories a day. This is the equivalent of eating 9 big macs per day or for those wanting…

    The Washington Capitals have locked up one of their key un-restricted free agents, C Jay Beagle, to a three-year contract extension.  The deal is worth $5.25 million and includes an average of $1.75 million per season. The Caps have three additional key unrestricted free agents: defenseman Mike Green, froward Eric Fehr, and forward Joel Ward.  However, it does not appear any of them will be resigned in Washington and all are set to hit the open free agency market. Beagle returns to the only professional franchise he has known.  Signed as an un-drafted free agent in 2008, Beagle won back…

But wasn’t really impressed with the other selections as I question second round pick Markus Golden at the next level in terms of lack of true speed rush. Atlanta Falcons: Grade A-, Dan Quinn is looking like a great hire on paper and so is his team’s off season. Every pick in this draft was well thought…

Questions began developing over the club concerning many higher figures, the players and other aspects. Over our owner, Joe Lewis’ long term interest in the clubs success, as to us on the outside, it seems as though he’s more interested in keeping his grip on his money in his waning years, rather than push the boat out and invest.Furthermore, over Daniel Levy’s mentality to turn our club from an over…

    The Benelli M2 is an advanced shotgun which is fast and accurate. The gun comes with a 28 inch barrel but does not have a 30 inch option. Experts opine that a 30 inch variant would have been a great addition to it. However, comparing it with other guns in its range, the Benelli M2 shotgun is much faster and doesn’t have much weight as it does not have a piston or a gas collar. The design is quite a nice one as it does not require cocking rods as well. Benelli Shotguns are a perfect fit where one is up to some serious hunting. Especially those looking for a gun to hunt down a pig, where…

The situation becomes even more difficult when the player trying to replace the veteran is a rookie. Although that’s not the mentality Chicago Bears’ first-round wide receiver Kevin White had during his first offseason activities with the team, it’s a position he will have to be in when he starts the season after an offseason where the Bears traded away Brandon Marshall to the New York Jets.

The Warriors’ 2014-15 campaign should go down as one of the greatest single seasons in league history.Golden State’s journey started with the unrealized potential of previous years. The 2013 team overachieved under second-year head coach Mark Jackson, but an ousting in the first round of the 2014 playoffs and a lack of…

    The Dirtiest Picks on the Internet

  • 2015 NBA Draft Preview

    Bobby Sugar
    24 Jun 2015 | 9:49 pm
    2015 NBA Draft Preview1) Jahlil Okafor - C - DukeBest case: Al Jefferson. Worst case: Derrick Favors. Most likely: Greg Monroe.Nutz: The knock on Oakdawg, as he will be known next year, is that he's just not that exciting. He's kind of slow. Doesn't throw down big dick swinging dunks like Deandre Jordan. Doesn't have unlimited three point range and won't block 5 shots a game off the backboard. I would have to agree with most critics on these points. Okafor is not a flashy Amare Stoudemire type player, but he's a damn good post player that has a high basketball IQ, a great (GREAT) back to the…

    Saturday Night Baseball LocksPittsburg Pirates @ Washington “Natty Ice” NationalsPick: Washington -1.5 (+160)Former Detroit Tigers’ ace, Max Scherzer, is on the mound for the Natty Ice tonight.  Scherzer might not be the league’s top pitcher this year but he’s still one of the best.  Washington’s roster is way too good to be a measly 2 games above .500.  I expect the Natty’s to put the hurt on the Pirates tonight in our nation’s capital.Los Angeles Angels @ Oakland AthleticsPick: Los Angeles SU (+123)The Angels are 7-4 in their last 11 games including a 12 run…

    Bobby Sugar
    16 Jun 2015 | 12:08 pm
    GSW vs. CLE (+4.5)This could very well be my last chance to bet on the NBA this season. So what do you propose I do? Go out like a bitch (or the general public) and take the favored Warriors to finish off the Cavs and win their first title since ole "Watermelon Grin" Rick Barry in the 70's?? No thank you. This will probably be the last time until next years finals where LeBron is on a team that is actually getting points (unless the play the Spurs of course), so I am going to take it. The Cavs are going to need big performances out of their guards, and maybe even a Timofey Mozgov sighting or…

  • 20 Quick Thoughts On NBA Free Agency 2015

    Alex Lowe
    30 Jun 2015 | 11:23 pm
    1. Kevin Love needs to sign within the first couple days, otherwise these tabloid stories of phone calls, hats, and selfies are going to distract from teams trying to get better. I’ve been sick of hearing that stuff since it started back in November. 2. It seems most likely that Love stays in Cleveland, but I really do like the idea of him going to the Lakers. Love is a Cali sort of guy. After all, his uncle was a Beach Boy. As a Love fan, it was painful to watch him sputter in Cleveland last year. The team wasn’t interested in making him a focal part of the offense, and Love is…

    Five years ago, this might have been the same as a list of budget free agents. Now, this is probably a list of possible premium free agents, despite their shortcomings. Every team is trying to find the guy that can fill the vaunted “Three & D” role needed by most top teams. I could spend a couple of paragraphs musing about how important someone who spreads the floor from behind the arc and also has enough athleticism and ability to guard the best wing players in the league, but it’s not much of a reveal anymore.

    Matt Kasanoff
    27 Jun 2015 | 9:08 pm
    Let’s look at each trade and grade them between 1 and 5 from both teams’ viewpoint, with 5 being perfect. Vancouver’s Eddie Lack to Carolina for 2015 3rd-round and 2016 7th-round Fan favorite Eddie Lack’s trade comes as no surprise. Vancouver GM Jim Benning announced the Canucks would trade goalies Eddie Lack or Jacob Markstrom at the draft. Markstrom is ready to be an NHL backup goalie, and with Ryan Miller owning the starting job, one goalie had to be moved. Markstrom is two years younger and two inches taller than Eddie Lack. Markstrom is a restricted free agent, so the Canucks…

  • Buffalo 1, Gwinnett 4: Bisons Drop A Tough One

    Greg Pokriki
    30 Jun 2015 | 7:52 pm
    It would have been a long day for the Buffalo Bisons if they had lost in nine innings. But losing in 13, while only scoring one run made it even longer.  The game proved to be a pitcher’s duel, kind of. There was no miraculous stuff, accompanied with a good amount of defense—but the key was the offensive ineptitude. Buffalo’s starter Randy Wolf went seven scoreless innings, allowing only five hits. The solid pitching kept the game 0-0 for what some (myself included) would call far too long.It took seven innings, but the Bisons finally broke the tie. The rally started with a double…

    Though the Bisons would make an effort filled comeback in tonight’s game, it would not be enough to overcome the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. Buffalo dropped the game 5-4.In the second inning the Iron Pigs got on the board first. They got themselves into a first and third situation, and executed perfectly. The two base runners pulled off the double steal, the man on third taking home following the throw down to second base. The run gave Lehigh Valley an early 1-0 lead.In the fifth inning Lehigh Valley truly broke the game open. They added three runs to their total, getting themselves a 4-0…

Though he put in a valiant performance, it would not be enough for a Buffalo victory as the Bisons fell 5-4. Lehigh Valley struck first and struck quickly. The Iron Pigs scored a runner from second on a single to center field. However, the 1-0 lead wouldn’t hold long. In the second Buffalo Hassan, fresh off the disabled list, knocked in a run to tie the game at one. Again in the fourth Hassan drove in a run with a sacrifice fly.

    Wednesday night marked the return of Danny Duffy, who was activating from the disabled list before the contest. He was sharp early, but was on a limited pitch count so only managed to go four and two-thirds innings while striking out four and issuing one earned run. Part of the reason Duffy has had struggles in the past was in the control department, so it was positive to see him give up zero walks in his effort. His ERA on the season now sits at 5.44, and he will look to ramp it up in his next few starts and buoy the Royals’ inconsistent starting staff. Roenis Elias cruised through…

    The Philadelphia 76ers have become the laughing stock of the NBA. Yes, they have promising young talent, but does General Manager, Sam Hinkie, have a firm plan in place to re-establish this once proud franchise?

  • Who Is The Inventor Of Tiki-Taka?

    30 Jun 2015 | 12:07 pm
    Who Is The Inventor Of Tiki-Taka?   Tiki-taka is the most successful football tactic of the last decade. But few people know who is the real inventor of tike-taka. Most people assume that Pep Guardioala invented the tiki-taka, but this is completely false because Guardiola’s Barcelona perfected a tactic that has been known since late 1960s. The real inventor of tiki-taka is the late Romanian head-coach Angelo Niculescu. If you really don’t believe me, you can check UEFA’s acknowledgement regarding Niculescu’s contribution to the development of football. The…

    MSN – Messi – Suarez – Neymar – The Best Strikers In The World   MSN – Messi – Neymar – Suarez – set a new goalscoring record for a trio – 122 goals in all competitions. This amazing figure is more impressive when you consider the fact that Barcelona’s lethal trio scored more than 94 of the 97 teams that play in Europe’s top 5 leagues. Their amazing results was instrumental for Barcelona, which managed to win another triple (La Liga, Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League). The unstoppable force of MSN – Messi…

    PSG – The Oil-Rich Team That Amazed In UCL Chelsea vs PSG from 11 March 2011 will sure become a classic of UEFA Champions League. It was a match full of surprises. PSG was for sure the better team and deserved to go further the Quarter Finals, while Chelsea remained stuck in a tactic that led to a complete disaster. What made the difference between the two teams? In my opinion the difference between Chelsea and PSG was made by the quality of football displayed by the two teams. While the oil-rich PSG tried to attack in both matches, Chelsea relied more on counter-attack and…

    Harry Kane – Tottenham’s Hurricane England’s new raising star, Harry Kane, is undoubtedly one of the best strikers in Premier League. Tottenham’s 21 years old striker is Premier League’s forth topscorer with 14 goals in 22 appearances, behind Diego Costa (17), Sergio Aguero (17) and Charlie Austin (14). Harry Kane is a complete striker, strong and hardworking, being able to score both from distance and from close range. Kane is a product of Tottenham’s youth system. The 21 years old English striker is one hell of an exception in a team that massively…

The final was 1st vs 2nd, and as the larger Etihad Stadium was pre-booked (can you believe it?) AAMI Park’s 30,000 capacity guaranteed sell-out and an hour before kick-off the scalpers were taking $ 300+ a ticket. It was a glorious Autumnal day, touching 23 degrees without a cloud in the sky.

    Brazil were eliminated from the 2015 edition of the Copa America on Saturday night after losing on penalties to Paraguay, meaning they have now not won the last two tournaments. They topped their group, despite losing to Colombia, and therefore were paired with Paraguay, who finished second in Group B behind Argentina and are still unbeaten in the tournament. Brazil had to face their final group game against Venezuela and the tie with Paraguay without their captain and talisman Neymar, who received a four-match ban for kicking the ball at Pablo Armero in their defeat against Colombia.

With 15 coaching changes this offseason, the pressures of sustainable success have never been greater and although another dozen-plus coaches managed to avoid termination after the 2014 season, we can still expect some turnover after sub-par 2015 seasons.In part one of the hot seat segment, here are five coaches that could…

The concept of defense has not changed, but the methods, schemes and theories surrounding the delicate nature of college football defenses has dramatically changed over the last decade. Because of the complexities of these items and the well-documented constant turnover of players and coaches, the value of a talented veteran defensive unit is as high ever, with coaches coveting responsible playmakers that possess extreme versatility and…

Bring in a New Centre-BackSimilar to the Cech situation, Arsenal's defence has been a big hindrance to their title challenges in recent years.Per MertesackerThere was once a time when the Gunner's defence consisted of players like Sol Campbell and Ashley Cole, but that time has gone and regaining a defence with that level of security and strength will go a long way to resurrect the Arsenal that were once feared by every team in England.

    Mike Pelfrey has a lot of making up to do in order to earn the $18.66 million the Minnesota Twins have paid him these last three years, but he’s finally starting to pay off. Pelfrey made roughly $150,000 per inning the last two seasons, but this season he’s All-Star trade bait. Pelfrey has made a solid case to make the American League All-Star pitching rotation. He’s 5-2 with a 2.28 ERA, 1.224 WHIP, 178 ERA+, and 2.6 WAR. He’s fourth in the American League in ERA and fourth in WAR. He hasn’t been worth more than one win above the replacement player since 2010,…

    1 Jun 2015 | 11:41 am
    Twenty-six years after his death, it was recently announced that a biopic is to be made of the life of, “acid psychiatrist,” and countercultural guru, R. D. Laing. Whilst a range of theorists, writers and even some of his former patients have attempted to discredit Laing’s theories and practice, his star continues to shine. Supporting this is the primacy and currency of discourse about the man and his world view. Ronald David Laing (1927-1989) was most famous for challenging mainstream psychiatry. His legacy also includes an attack on the dominant model of scientific reason and Western…

    You would think that journalists stick together – that we got each other’s backs. When it comes to violence directed at journalists we sure do, but when it comes to the future of journalism, we seem so divided the media crisis in Europe and Australia is our own doing. Funny isn’t it? A lot of journalists complain ad nauseam about objective and balanced reporting. Yet when some are given the privilege to write a column or opinion piece, objectivity and balance often goes out the window, leaving the readers with a narrative of ‘I am right. Everyone else is wrong.’ Diversity of…

    18 Jun 2015 | 8:49 am
    Why do I need cycling shoes and what are the benefits? That’s a question regularly asked by Decathlon customers. Put simply it’s about how cycling shoes are designed. The soles are stiffer so you’ll pedal more efficiently with the power transferred directly to the pedals. They’ll also provide more support for your feet than regular trainers so they won’t cramp on longer rides. This applies whether you’re on a road bike, hitting the trails on your mountain bike or on a spin bike at the local gym. If you do want cycling shoes, firstly you need to decide what type of riding you do as…

    Mountain biking tends to wear through components. So, really, you don’t need too many excuses to make your bike lighter, stronger and better as its parts experience wear and tear… Tyres The easiest mountain bike upgrade is to switch tyres, which can make a dramatic difference to the way a bike handles. Winter mud tyres are vital in Britain, if you don’t want to hang your bike in the shed for over half the year. During drier months, particularly if current tyres feel skittish on more demanding trails, consider fatter tyres. These roll a bit slower, but offer more grip and can be…

Marshall even established a long-term goal for them:  breaking the touchdown record for a passing combination of 112 set by Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison. They made a lot of headway during…

It’s the most acting we’ve ever seen Becks do, which will no doubt lead to more rumours that Goldenballs is set for a part in Guy Ritchie’s hotly anticipated modern day adaptation of King Arthur. You can watch Beckham in action in the full ad below:

    Garth Snow has been a busy man signing Anders Lee & Thomas Hickey. Fortunately, that’s not all the New York Islanders boss has done. Garth Snow’s game plan has been obvious. It’s to lock up current players on the New York Islanders roster, remaining aggressive in filling any gaps, and entertaining any opportunity that will upgrade his team. First came the announcement of the Signing of Anders Lee to a four-year contract worth $15 million, $3.75 million a year. The Rookie had 25 goals and finished with 41 points in 76 games last season.  Lee was second on the team…

    Tennis Updates: British number one Heather Watson reached the third round at Wimbledon for the second time in her career with victory over Daniela Hantuchova. Watson, the last British woman left in the main draw, had to deal with soaring temperatures on Court One on the hottest day at Wimbledon on record. The 23-year-old won 6-4 6-2 in 81 minutes and will face five-time champion Serena Williams next. Earlier, Liam Broady’s defeat left three Britons in the men’s singles.

Real Madrid still hasn’t offered him a pay raise which is definitely a bad sign for the relationship between the club and the player. The Spanish international has made it clear multiple times that he wants a bigger salary in order to continue his career at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, the fact that the management of the Los Blancos hasn’t offered him a contract renewal has sparked all kinds of…

The relationships between the players and those in their box, which in home favorite Andy Murray’s case is packed to capacity, makes for fascinating viewing. But with all forms of on-court coaching prohibited at grand slam tournaments, the line between offering support and passing on coded tactical messages can by blurred.

Cameras followed him, showing him on the scoreboard. “Unbelievable,” Toews said with his arms raised, hands clapping. “Unbelievable.” The 22,424 standing, hugging, cheering, selfie-taking, red-clad and relieved fans applauded back at their captain, loudly.

      The main complaint that pro DH fans have about NL baseball is that pitchers can’t hit. So if there was a way to keep pitchers from hitting, but not use a DH, how would it be accepted? I hate the idea that there are “baseball players” that “play” an entire game without ever touching a glove. So instead of taking the pitcher out of the batting order and replacing him with a Designated Hitter, what if we just removed the 9-hole hitter entirely. This would do a number of things. Pitchers wouldn’t hit, appeasing those who complain about “automatic…

RB Cameron Artis-Payne With C.A.P. his true value lies in the inability of Johnathan Stewart to stay healthy. With this in mind, taking a mid-round flier on Cameron makes sense given the amount of touches he will potentially see as a rookie.

Walcott has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium, with Liverpool reported to be among the sides interested, and he gave a timely reminder of his quality as the Premier League season came to a close on Sunday.

    In every fantasy sport, playing the waiver wire is as important to long-term success as a solid draft. Fantasy baseball, in particular, contains an unprecedented amount of league scoring settings, ranging from rotisserie to head-to-head with subsets for each. Still, the large pool of players generally allows for midseason acquisitions that can help bolster any roster.

    By J.P. PelosiLate eighties NBA, all ankle-clad and mustached, needed another superhero.Magic and the Birdman were closing in on retirement, and the real Mighty Mouse, Isiah Thomas, had just a few good years left. Right on cue, Michael Jordan began his ascension. Superboy would become Superman.But in this injustice league, legacies are often based on perception. Look at Karl Malone: has a former superstar ever been so disparaged for his performance, post career?Time is a strange beast.For a kid in 1989, the NBA was unmatched fantasy and showstopping entertainment, and as such, is often viewed…

    By J.P. PelosiI'm not a strong swimmer. But where I'm from, on Sydney's northern shore, life is aquatic. Sink or swim, in other words. Or at least, try stay afloat.Such earnestness comes from a long relationship with the Pacific's surf. I couldn't tell you when it began but I am aware of a few of the peaks in the narrative. One such tale happened about 100 years ago. Along Sydney’s glittery coast in the summer of 1915, the legendary Hawaiian surfer Duke Kahanamoku showed locals a few tricks. He looked superhuman, with an upper body convexed like a rum barrel, and similarly corked tight to…

He's big ... 6-11.He's versatile ... you know, shoots, rebounds and blocks shots.And he's humble ... I just don't know what else you'd be looking for as an NBA general manager. A winning smile perhaps?The Duke star isn't simply a smiling, sure-handed, light-footed big…

    By Paul LaneThis time of year my mind turns to the immaculate green grass of Wimbledon. And still, I don't mind not being in London right now because it's one sporting event that always looks good on TV.It was even better when I was growing up, when players in headbands and short shorts used to dart around the court, unafraid to charge the net and, dare I say it, volley! Volleying requires sharp reflexes, balance and creativity, which in 2015, seems hard to come by in combination. No, in more recent years, the big boppers of the sport have turned their attention to endurance and power. They…

This is no mean feat given that few basketball fans knew who Dellavedova was a month ago. Sales of his jersey would have had to eclipse those of perennial top movers like LeBron James and Michael Jordan to have reached such heights, which could hardly have been expected even as the finals began.Presumably most of the purchased jerseys are in the club's classic wine and gold colouring, and not its infamous…

    Times change, and with that,  the time has now come to put the MLB All Star Game to bed.  It's run it's course.  It's had a good run, but the time is here for baseball and new Commissioner Rob Manfred to adjust to the times and move away from the meaningless exhibition, which has almost become more of a mockery than an actual sporting event.  Gone are the days of the All Star Game really showcasing anything that closely resembles a hard fought baseball game.  Back in the 60's and 70's, the heyday of the Mid Summer classic, some of the most iconic baseball moments took…
