Through five weeks of the 2015 NFL season, Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery ranks 107th in fantasy production in standard scoring leagues with 37 total points. Wholesale Heat Jerseys . In PPR leagues? Yeah, Jeffery bumps up the list a bit with 59 total points (81st overall), but the lack of high-level production from the Bears No. 1 wide receiver is alarming for owners. In fact, Jeffery has yet to score a touchdown this season and the deep balls have almost disappeared with quarterback Brian Hoyer under center in Chicago.Today, lets discuss Jefferys lack of production in the Bears passing game, break down how Steelers wide receiver Sammie Coates has elevated to must-start status as a WR2 and also discuss why owners of the Vikings defense have to hold on to Mike Zimmers unit through the bye week. Cheap Miami Heat Jerseys .

Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night.The new MLS season kicks off on Sunday - but who will you be supporting? If you havent got a team, find out who you should follow below, based on your favourite Premier League team. Then follow your new side on Sky Sports - all the way to the MLS Cup final...   Arsenal - New York Red Bulls Thierry Henry used to play for New York Red Bulls Thierry Henry has played for both clubs but the similarities dont end there. Arsenal have won the FA Cup for the last two seasons, while the Red Bulls have won the Supporters Shield in 2013 and 2015.However, both are on the hunt for an elusive title despite consistently finishing high up the table. Aston Villa - Chicago Fire Shaun Maloney used to play for Aston Villa and Chicago Fire Chicago Fire finished bottom of the MLS standings last season and were cut adrift from the rest of the pack… ring any bells Villa fans?  However, like Villa, both are building for the future with some good young players. Shaun Maloney also had stints at both clubs.Bournemouth - New England Revolution Robert Kraft (R) with New England coach Jay Heaps (L) Similar to Bournemouth, New England play an attractive brand of football with a good young crop of players.The Revolution also have the capability to surprise - just like Bournemouth, who have beaten Chelsea and Manchester United this season. Chelsea - Montreal Impact Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba plays for Montreal Impact The Didier Drogba connection and the fact both clubs wear blue makes Montreal and Chelsea the perfect match.Montreal have financial clout in the league and an owner who isnt afraid to make managerial changes if he feels success is not imminent.In the four seasons Montreal have played in the MLS, there have been three managerial sackings.Crystal Palace - San Jose Earthquakes San Jose Earthquakes fans are known to be noisy particularly away from home With a very vocal fanbase, the Earthquakes are the noisy neighbours to their state rivals and fight against the more financially lucrative clubs nearby. They always like to punch above their weight.Everton - Real Salt Lake Former Real Salt Lake head coach Jason Kreis Real Salt Lake contain some very good attacking players and are always expected to feature in the top half of the table.Former head coach Jason Kreis was similar to David Moyes in how he brought a strong identity to the club on the pitch, with the blueprint one which the club follows to this day.Leicester City - Columbus Crew Kei Kamara is one of Columbus two main stars In terms of status, Columbus and Leicester could both be considered smaller clubs in their respective leagues and play in front of passionate fans from industrious cities. Similarly to Leicester, Columbus have the potential and playing style to cause a serious upset and last season reached the MLS Cup final.While Leicesters star duo are Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, the Crew also have a premier pair in Kei Kamara and Ethan Finlay.Liverpool - Toronto FC   Toronto invest big in their attack on players such as Sebastian Giovinco One of the more northern sides in MLS, Toronto FC, like Liverpool, are extremely popular in their city, and wear red.However, league success seems to be hard to come by right now, despite Toronto investing large sums into their attack. Their defence needs work. Manchester City - New York City FC Frank Lampard played for Manchester City The connections between these two are obvious. Both have the same owners, personnel can be shared while both have plentiful resources to be successful teams.NYCFC also have fierce red-wearing rivals across the city. These two go hand-in-hand.Manchester United - LA Galaxy David Beckham played for Manchester United and LA Galaxy Both Manchester United and LA Galaxy are the most successful league clubs in their respective countries.While Uniteds best years came under Sir Alex Ferguson, for LA Galaxy, Bruce Arena was the inspirational leader, taking the team to three MLS Cup titles in eight years.Yes, supporting a team featuuring Steven Gerrard may not sit well with some United fans but remember, Old Trafford hero David Beckham won two MLS Cups in Los Angeles. Cheap Heat Jerseys.  Newcastle United - Philadelphia Union Union fans havent been impressed with their teams performances in recent times The Union are based in the heartland of one of the countrys major industrial centres, theres clear discord between passionate fans and their owners while on the pitch the team are prone to under-perform despite the funding available.Norwich City - Colorado Rapids Colorado Rapids head coach Pablo Mastroeni Neither Colorado, who are owned by Arsenals majority shareholder Stan Kroenke, or Norwich like to spend outside their means, while both teams are happy to maintain a healthy league status with any cup or league success a bonus.Southampton - Sporting Kansas City Sporting Kansas City head coach Peter Vermes with Barack Obama Like Southampton, Kansas aim for a positive, attractive style of play and their highly-experienced manager knows how to achieve success in the transfer market. Stoke City - FC Dallas Toyota Stadium - the home of FC Dallas Dallas have quick, exciting players in forward positions who can cause real damage when in form, as well as hard-working defenders and midfielders.Dallas Toyota Stadium in Frisco is also an infamously tough place for away teams to visit - just like the Britannia.Sunderland - Houston Dynamo Houston Dynamo head coach Owen Coyle Houston are regularly in direct competition with their fierce rivals across the state - Dallas - similar to Sunderlands rivalry with Newcastle.Houston have struggled to compete against the bigger clubs as they tend to be near the bottom end of the table, but they do have an experienced manager in Owen Coyle. Swansea City - Vancouver Whitecaps Carl Robinson is Vancouver Whitecaps Welsh head coach On their day, Vancouver can be one of the best teams to watch in the league. The Whitecaps - managed by Welshman Carl Robinson - have always looked to exceed their levels of expectation on a small budget and search far and wide in the transfer market to make the correct acquisitions. However, their inconsistency can be their downfall.Tottenham Hotspur - Seattle Sounders Clint Dempsey played for Tottenham before moving to Seattle in 2012 Tottenham and Seattle have switched players in the past, with Clint Dempsey heading Stateside and DeAndre Yedlin joining Spurs. Seattle have spent large sums on players in the past without any massive pressure to achieve title wins, and have a positive recent track history of pushing through young domestic players into the first team.Watford - Orlando City Kaka is Orlando Citys star man Kaka is the club talisman for Orlando, just like Troy Deeney is for Watford, and the Brazilian is surrounded by an international team of players from far-flung lands.The ambitious Orlando owners arent afraid to upset the bigger teams. West Brom - DC United DC United are known to be a strong team defensively Like West Brom, DC United are solid, hard-working and operate on a small budget. They dont play the most aesthetically pleasing football and havent enjoyed top success for a number of years, but do have a proud history and are always very tough to play.Head coach Ben Olsen is similar to Tony Pulis in how he likes to run a tight ship with discipline the key ingredient.West Ham - Portland Timbers Portlands mascot Timber Joey Portland are a strong, athletic side who are hard to break down and collectively a good attacking unit. Darlington Nagbe is Portlands answer to Dimitri Payet, while they could have the capability of winning silverware.West Hams mascot may be a walking hammer, but does it compare to a lumberjack with a chainsaw?

BLACKSBURG, Va. Roger Staubach Jersey . -- Jerod Evans thinks Virginia Tech is still learning how effective and explosive it can be on offense.Evans tied a school record with five touchdown passes Saturday and the Hokies limited Boston College to 124 yards and six first downs in a 49-0 victory. Evans played just the first three quarters, leaving with the Hokies (2-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) leading 42-0. He hit Isaiah Ford twice for touchdowns and also found Travon McMillian, Chris Cunningham and Sam Rogers. McMillian also scored on a 7-yard run.The offensive performance came after the Hokies fumbled the ball away nine times in splitting their first two games.We have a group on offense that was getting tired of fumbling, tired of seeing the same mistakes over and over and we knew if we could just hold onto the ball, regardless of how much yardage we get, we can do something great, Evans, a transfer from Trinity Valley Community College in Texas, said. I think thats a glimpse of what we can do if we keep this up.The margin was the Hokies largest in an ACC game since they beat Maryland 55-6 in 2004.It helps, Evans is learning, to have talented skill players like Ford who are intent on making plays. Fords second touchdown came when he was double covered and still came down with the ball at the back of the end zone.After I threw it, I said, `Oh, that ball should not have been thrown, Evans said. Im probably going to hear about that tomorrow.First-year coach Justin Fuente said hes more interested in how Evans is graded rather than his statistics, but he likes what he sees.Every week -- at least the last three weeks -- hes approached it with a great mindset, Fuente said after Evans finished 16 of 23 for 253 yards. Hes a good listener and tries to do what were asking him to do and at times he does it on a pretty consistent basis.The shutout was Virginia Techs first since it beat Bowling Green 37-0 in 2012.Its really exciting, cornerback Brandon Facyson said. I dont think weve had a goose egg since weve been here.The Eagles (1-2, 0-2) didnt reach triple figures in total yards until late in the third quarter and finished the game with fewer first downs, six, than Virginia Tech had touchdowns. It was the 10th consecutive loss for Boston College in conference play, and free safety John Johnson said if the Eagles had any hard feelings about the Hokies running up the score, BC should have played better defense.It got a little redundant, running the same plays and gashing us on the same plays, he said.WILLIAMS RETURNSMarshawn Williams returned to the backfield for the Hokies for the first time since tearing his ACL late in the 2014 season and showed no ill effects from the injury. He carried 15 times for 81 yards and was Virginia Techs leading rusher.THE TAKEAWAYBOSTON COLLEGE: Even the best defense has no chance when its offense cant get anything going. The Eagles arrived ranked third nationally in total defense, allowing just 180 yards per game, but the unit was on the field for 35:15 compared to 24:45 for the Hokies D.The Hokies finished with 476 yards (253 passing, 223 rushing) and scored touchdowns all five times it reached the red zone.VIRGINIA TECH: Evans is easing the Hokies transition into first-year coach Justin Fuentes faster-paced offense with solid decision-making. He had gaudy numbers last season (38 TDs, just three interceptions) and is on a similar pace with 10 TDs and one interception.The pick was not Evans fault as he hit Ford on a slant and Ford juggled the ball and tipped it to the Eagles John Johnson.UP NEXTBOSTON COLLEGE: The Eagles return home to Chestnut Hill for a game against Wagner. It will be the first of four consecutive home games for BC.VIRGINIA TECH: The Hokies wrap up their non-conference schedule as they entertain recent nemesis East Carolina on Homecoming. The Pirates have won the last two meetings, each time by a touchdown.---Online: The APs college football page: Hank on Twitter: Robert Newhouse Jersey . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. Travis Frederick Jersey . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner. As a schoolboy, one of my favourite books was a collection of cricket stories. The tales were entirely fictional, of heroic last stands and match-winning bowlers specialising in donkey drops. The stories were as much about unusual people in exceptional circumstances as they were about the sport. Cricket lends itself readily to backstory and biography.White on Green, a follow-up to Peter Obornes excellent Wounded Tigers, promises to paint a mesmerising picture of the fascinating events and individuals that have shaped the enigmatic cricket of Pakistan. It promises the backstory and the biography of Pakistan cricket in the words of the protagonists and through the eyes of their contemporaries.The stories are varied and generally brief, perfect for sporadic attention. Prince Aslam, heir to the princely state of Manavadar in pre-Partition India, opens proceedings. He was a playboy cricketer who left a match once he had taken enough wickets to enjoy a party or attend to a girlfriend. He died lonely and sad.We hear the story of Master Aziz, who was separated from his 12-year-old son during Partition. While his son, Salim Durani, went on to play for India, Aziz mentored dozens of talented Pakistani cricketers, some of whom became greats.These, then, are as much tales of Partition and politics, of joy and loss, of the making and breaking of society and individuals, as they are of cricket and cricketers. In this sense, the political passions of the authors, Oborne and Richard Heller, shine through. What is cricket except a manifestation of the political and social evolution of a country?And these observations benefit from the view of outsiders, less entangled in the day-to-day machinations of navigating a life and a living in Pakistan. The authors share a love of their subject and a passion for detail. Forgotten lives and events matter to their besotted eyes.Here we find gems that matter. For instance, the story of Raees Mohammad, the fifth of the marvellous Mohammad brothers, four of whom played Test cricket for Pakistan. Hanif, the most famous of the brothers, died last week. Imagine family games of cricket in the Mohammads garden or on their verandah. Raees is called up too but misses out in what history will judge to be a heartbreaking injustice.What about Dera Ismail Khan, a name tthat will be familiar to anoraks? Dera played one first-class match and were beaten by Railways by a world-record innings and 851 runs. Joe Looney Jersey. . How did this happen? Was it, as the Wisden Almanack described, a case of Pakistans cricket board allowing teams with no first-class status to compete in first-class tournaments? Then theres Tauseef Ahmed, impressive offspinner and potential Lionel Richie impersonator. Tauseef blagged a role as a net bowler for Pakistans preparations for their first Test against Australia in 1980. Javed Miandad put him up in Zaheer Abbas hotel room, and when Zaheer rang the room to pick up his messages he was shocked to hear Tauseefs voice. Once Tauseef explained what had happened, Zaheer told him to stay.Following the net session, Tauseef returned to his club but received a call from a friend, a cinema owner from Bradford. He told me I was in the Test team. I didnt believe him, but he told me to go home and check. I found a crowd there and thought maybe there was something in it. Tauseef was indeed selected; the offspinner in the squad, Ilyas Khan, had been dropped. Only in Pakistan.We learn more about the cricketing lives of Billy Ibadulla, Duncan Sharpe, and Aftab Baloch. Perhaps most importantly of all, we discover the story behind the introduction of womens cricket to Pakistan, and the ignored tales of the survivors of the terrorist attack on Sri Lankas cricketers in Lahore.There is much to marvel at and revel in but you need to work hard to find it amid material that didnt make the final edit of Wounded Tigers. Some of the biographies of Pakistans cricketers are well known and whats new only forms a minor part of the story. Some chapters indulge the authors and their subjects.So enter with care. White on Green offers detail that you may not be seeking, about events that you might not care about. But for anybody with a love of cricket and cricketers lives, of how cricket and society intertwine, of Pakistan and its idiosyncrasies and injustices, this is a volume you might have dreamt about as a child.White on Green: A Portrait of Pakistan Cricket By Richard Heller and Peter Oborne Simon and Schuster UK 320 pages, £20 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

CINCINNATI -- The Chicago Cubs best regular season in 106 years came to an end Sunday as their final game, a 7-4 victory over the Reds, highlighted a remarkable year. Miles Killebrew Jersey .Down 4-3 with two outs and no one on base in the ninth inning, Chicago rallied for four runs to take the lead.It was the Cubs 103rd win of the year. They were the only team in Major League Baseball to reach the 100-win plateau this season.The boxes have been checked in the regular season, manager Joe Maddon said before Sundays game. We won the division, we stayed relatively healthy, weve played well. ... All this stuff we talked about in camp regarding embracing the target and dealing with the pressure, weve done all those things.In the process the Cubs will have multiple candidates for multiple awards. Starting pitcher?Kyle Hendricks may have hurt his Cy Young cause a little Sunday as he gave up six hits and four runs over five innings, raising his ERA to 2.13. Its still good enough to win the ERA title by a wide margin. Left-hander?Jon Lester finished second in ERA at 2.44, making them the first teammates to finish 1-2 in the stat since the 2005 Houston Astros?Roger Clemens and?Andy Pettitte.With Cy Young candidate Max Scherzer?of the Washington Nationals seeing his ERA rise to 2.96 on Sunday, one of the two Cubs could take home the top pitching honor.I dont know which one deserves the Cy Young Award, catcher Miguel Montero said recently. Maybe they can split the award.At the plate, its a similar situation between sluggers Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant. They combined for 71 home runs and 211 RBIs while each hitting .292. Bryants 7.6 WAR led all National League players while Rizzo ranked fifth at 5.8 going into Sundays finale.Bryant is considered the front-runner for MVP after being named minor league player of the year and rookie of the year over the past two seasons.There were other major team accomplishments, including the pitching staff leading the league in ERA, while the Cubs top four hitters all produced on-base averages above .380. But as Lester noted Saturday, the past 162 games will have much less meaning if the Cubs dont go far in the postseason. Their last championship came in 1908.This season isnt anything unless we do what we showed up at spring training to do -- win a World Series, Lester said.The Cubs will have four days off to prepare for their second consecutive postseason appearance. Last year, they were the fun underdog and upset two teams that finished ahead of them in the standings. This year, they enter the playoffs as the team to beat, a near wire-to-wire winner in the division, sporting the best record in baseball for much of the season.Its go time, Lester said. Now we have to live up to the expectations and hype. Barry Sanders Jersey . Supported by three-run homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the young right-hander went seven strong innings in the Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. Kasey Redfern Jersey . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. . Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves horrible season keeps getting worse.With eight wild pitches and four errors the last two nights, the Braves keep finding ways to top their embarrassment.Last night we got (blown out) and tonight we had a three-run lead in the eighth and we just didnt get it done, catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. There is no other way to put it.Trevor Story led off the ninth inning with a single, advanced to third on two wild pitches and scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error as the bumbling Braves lost 4-3 to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.Braves starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz began the eighth up 3-0, but let the first three batters reach and was chased by Nick Hundleys RBI single.Hunter Cervenkas wild pitch scored Mark Reynolds, and second baseman Gordon Beckhams throwing error scored Hundley for a 3-all tie.In the ninth, closer Jim Johnson (1-5) gave up a leadoff single to Story and threw wild pitches to two batters. Story scored when shortstop Erick Aybar bounced a throw on Reynolds fielders choice to Pierzynski, and ball bounced off the catchers glove.The Braves have been an easy target. They rank last in the majors in runs scored and have baseballs worst home and overall records. They let two runs score on a two-base throwing error and a wild pitch in Fridays 11-2 loss.Boone Logan (1-0) gave up one hit and one walk in the eighth.Carlos Estevez retired the side in order in the ninth to earn his fifth save in eight chances.Atlanta led 2-0 in the second on Pierzynskis first homer of the season. Foltynewiczs RBI single in the seventh put the Braves ahead 3-0.Foltynewicz allowed four hits, three runs, walked two and struck out five in seven-plus innings. He retired 12 straight before Ryan Raburn singled in the fifth and was commanding his fastball between 97 and 100 mph.But the Rockies, who began the game ranked second in NL runs per game, finally got going in the eighth.Its really unfortunate the way itt unfolded there in the eighth, Foltynewicz said. A’Shawn Robinson Jersey. . I put my bullpen in a bad situation.Chad Bettis allowed six hits, three runs, three walks and struck out seven in 6 2/3 innings. The Rockies had won five of Bettis last six starts despite his 5.79 ERA during that span.Colorado began the game 0-43 when trailing after seven innings. Manager Walt Weiss liked how his team kept grinding.We knew early on it was going to be tough to score runs against (Foltynewicz), Weiss said. But we hung in there, made him work, got his pitch count up later, got in the bullpen and we strung together some real key at-bats.EVERY FIVE GAMESInterim Braves manager Brian Snitker said rookie RHP Tyrell Jenkins will join the rotation Tuesday at Cincinnati.Jenkins, acquired with Shelby Miller in the November 2014 trade that sent Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden to St. Louis, made an emergency start on July 6 for Julio Teheran. He gave up four hits and one run in 4 2/3 innings. In four relief appearances, hes 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Raburn was in the lineup for the first time in the teams last seven games because of a sore quadriceps. He went 2 for 4.

MONTREAL -- Matteo Mancosu scored in his first Major League Soccer start to help the Montreal Impact beat the Houston Dynamo 1-0 on Saturday night. Cheap Orlando Magic Jerseys .Starting at striker in place of suspended scoring star Didier Drogba, Mancosu took down a long pass over the top from Italian compatriot Marco Donadel and slid a low shot inside the left post in the 77th minute.Drogba missed the game after receiving a red card last week in a 1-1 tie at D.C. United.Mancuso has two goals and an assist in first games since signing with the Impact on July. Montreal (8-5-9) is 4-1-5 in its last 10 games.Houston (4-10-8) is winless in five games and has scored only one goal in that span. Cheap Magic Jerseys . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. Cheap Magic Jerseys China . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. .

India vs England November 9, 2016, 3:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass James Anderson: Our partnership has blossomed over the last four or five years. We have a good relationship on and off the field. We know each others game inside out which helps us work together more effectively.Broad: The communication part of our partnership is the thing thats grown over the last four or five years. Its something that I never really paid a huge amount of attention to and I cant believe how much it has helped me as a bowler because just being able to talk about whats working [helps]. Our job is to get the opening batsmen out as soon as we possibly can, so can we react to conditions quicker than them? The best way to do that is to share information. Growing up I always heard about batting partnerships - no-one ever talked about bowling in partnerships and if I could pass any information onto anyone it would be work with the guy at the other end. Watch some of the most memorable moments from Stuart Broad so far... Ian Bell, speaking about Broads 5-37 against Australia at the Oval in 2009: When Broady gets on a roll and his tail is up it doesnt matter who the batter is or how good the other team is, he blows them away. It was great to be there alongside him and witness those spells.Broad: Id sort of been the fourth seamer behind Fred (Andrew Flintoff) so opportunities hadnt really arisen for me to take responsibility, and they dont as a young kid. In one of those Ashes Tests I came on to bowl in the 59th over! This was similar. I think Australia were 100-0. We went off at lunch and it was all a bit quiet and Andrew Strauss came over and said were going to start with you after lunch; we need some wickets, just give it a go. I got a touch lucky as there was a touch of rain before we went out and it just seemed to kiss through quite nicely. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for only £6.99. No contract. Matt Prior, speaking about Broads spell of 6-20 against Australia at Durham in 2013: The slips and I would stand and talk and say right, here we go - hes into one of these Stuart Broad rhythms; anything could happen here.Broad: With experience Ive got to realise when Im in that sort of rhythm. My knees pick up really nicely and I feel light in my run up. I feel like Im snapping through my action without forcing anything - I dont feel like Im trying to bowl quickly. Most importantly, actually, Im not thinking inswing, outswing, what am I doing? I actually simplify a lot and almost just try to hit the top of off-stump and if one nips back, it nips back. I think Im a better bowler when Im not thinking too much about different skills - I justt let my instincts take over. Wholesale Magic Jerseys. . Matt has been incredibly influential in my career. I started in the National Academy with him and, as a wicketkeeper, he was a very influential man in the field - hed always rev the guys up at the right moments. He had a way of talking to me that would get me going. Hed encourage me but also challenge me a little bit. Nasser Hussain has labelled Stuart Broad an England great Prior on Broads impact: His standout characteristic for England is how many times hes single-handedly changed a game or turned a game on its head. I was watching that first day at Trent Bridge in 2015 when he took his eight-for and to watch someone run through the Australians like that was incredible and hes done it time and time again for England.Broad: In the past year Ive not had that standout five-for spell - I have been a little bit more consistent in my two and three-fors - but they are great fun when you get into those spells. I absolutely love that feeling when you feel like you are in control of the game and you almost need wickets to get the team back into the game.Alastair Cook, reflecting on Broads 8-15 in 2015: He still told me that we should have batted at lunch after it - which shows that after Graeme Swann he is the most stubborn man in cricket. But it was an amazing spell of bowling.Broad: I am stubborn but surely Im behind Alastair Cook! Stuart Broad says hes excited at earning his 100th England Test cap Lets leave the final word to Broad. Which of his many fine spells gives him the most satisfaction?Broad on his 6-17 against South Africa in 2016: The Wanderers is quite an intimidating place to play. I felt like that pitch suited me a little bit. I wasnt very well in the first innings and didnt bowl well but then I got in one of those rhythms and the ball was bouncing. The crowd are hostile towards the England side, in a good way, but bowling out South Africa on that day probably gave me the most amount of pleasure. I dont feel like I gave many freebies away. I had a lot of luck in it too, as you do - James Taylor took some brilliant catches - but that spell probably behind the 8-15 gave me the most satisfaction in terms of the areas I bowled because in that 8-15 not one of the balls that I bowled would probably have hit the stumps.England take on India in the first Test of their five-match tour, in Rajkot, from 3.30am this Wednesday on Sky Sports 2.  Watch the complete Test for £10.99 with no contract, with a Week Pass from NOW TV.

Sebastian Vettel is happy with the news Kimi Raikkonen has been signed for another year by Ferrari, saying he and the Finn have the least ego problems in the whole paddock. Cheap Swingman Raptors Jerseys .Ferrari ended speculation about its driver line-up by confirming Raikkonens renewal on Friday morning, tying the Finn down for another season. Raikkonen has a good relationship with Vettel, something both men have spoken about since being paired together in 2015, and Ferrari was wary of upsetting team harmony with a new driver.?Vettel will help the team refocus its efforts on trying to catch Mercedes in 2016.I think its the right thing to do, Vettel said about Raikkonens renewal. I think were both pushing very hard. Our primary target is to catch the leaders, in this case Mercedes, so theres plenty of work ahead of us. Theres been a lot of talk now that all goes to quiet and we can focus on our work.I would say that probably Kimi and myself have the least ego problems in the whole paddock, which I think is good for the team - were working in the same direction. On the track we both try to race hard, as weve shown in the past in the races where weve raced for position. I think thats normal. Outside the car I think theres no problem.Asked about his good relationship with Raikkonen compared to former teammates, he said: Hes the least complicated, lets put it this way. I think in general I got on well with all the teammates I had, here and there I had some difficulties. But that was all politics. He keeps everything quiet, our own egos are put aside which is good for the team.Raikkonens performances have been criticised since he returned to Ferrari in 2014, though there has been a noticeable improvement in 2016. Vettel rates Raikkonen as one of the best drivers on the current grid regardless of his recent form.Hes a world champion for a reason, he could have been a multiple world champion if McLaren had given him a better car. I think hes one of the most talented drivers we have on the current grid, theres no doubt.Another former world champion, Jenson Button, reacted to Vettels ego quote on social media.? Cheap Toronto Raptors Jerseys .Y. - New York City has been selected to host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2015, with the game played at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Cheap Raptors Jerseys Authentic . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan.

The Chicago White Sox have activated first baseman Justin Morneau from the disabled list and promoted top pitching prospect Carson Fulmer from the minor leagues. Cheap Brandon Wilson Jersey .The White Sox, who are seven games behind the first-place Cleveland Indians in the AL Central, added Morneau and Fulmer as part of a series of roster moves before Fridays game against the Los Angeles Angels.Morneau, a former American League MVP, signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the White Sox last month after undergoing offseason elbow surgery. He batted .174 in eight games during his minor league rehab assignment over the past 11 days.Getting back here was difficult, Morneau said. And now its the beginning of hopefully the good stuff.Fulmer was the No. 8 pick in last years draft and appeared in the All-Star Futures Game this past weekend in San Diego. The right-hander has pitched exclusively as a starter in the minors, but the White Sox reportedly are considering using him out of the bullpen.White Sox manager Robin Ventura hinted last week that the organization could add Fulmer as a reliever, similar to the way Carlos Rodon and Chris Sale broke into the majors.Youre trying to see if a kid can do it, and we did it with Carlos a little bit, and Chris has done it, Ventura told the Chicago Tribune. You bring em up here and you bring em through out of the bullpen and see if you can lighten their load a little bit and then see how they handle it.Atlanta Braves top prospect Dansby Swanson, Fulmers college teammate at Vanderbilt, tweeted Friday morning to congratulate Fulmer.Morneau won the 2014 NL batting title when he hit .319 for Colorado. He was the MVP in 2006 with Minnesota when the Twins fought the White Sox for supremacy in the AL Central.Morneau also batted .310 in only 49 games with the Rockies last season. Hes had concussion issues and has been slow to recover from surgery to repair the primary flexor in his elbow.Fulmer, 22, is 4-9 with a 4.76 ERA in 17 starts this season at Double-A Birmingham. But he has pitched better over his past three starts, allowing just two runs over 19 innings.Im just getting ahead, Fulmer told over the weekend. I felt like I fell behind a lot of guys and I paid for it. Im just coming out with a strike-one mentality and just pounding the strike zone.In a corresponding roster move Friday, the White Sox optioned outfielder Jason Coats to Triple-A Charlotte.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Cheap Bengals Jerseys .

The Big Ten will play six Friday night football games a year starting in 2017 and continuing through at least 2022, the conference announced Wednesday.Not every school wants to host those games, though.The Friday night games are being added to the conferences television agreements with ESPN/ABC and Fox, Senior Associate Commissioner Mark Rudner said. No team will play more than one Friday night home game a year.The Big Ten already has had Friday night games on Labor Day weekend. Those games will continue and be counted among the six each year. Iowa and Nebraska play each other the day after Thanksgiving in a game that wont count among the six.Penn State announced it wouldnt play at home on a Friday night, and Commissioner Jim Delany told the Chicago Tribune that Michigan has said no to playing home or away on a Friday night.We fully support the Big Tens scheduling decisions as well as conference peers who are able to play on Friday nights, Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel said in a statement. With our large fan base, Michigan fans and alumni travel significant distances to attend games, making Saturdays our preferred day for all football games.Ohio State is willing to host once every three years, but only when the Friday falls during fall break on the academic calendar. Iowa and Michigan State dont want to host except on Labor Day weekend. Wisconsin would be open to playing at home on Labor Day weekend in selected years, athletic director Barry Alvarez said.Nebraska and Indiana have agreed to host once every three years. Maryland had no comment, and Northwestern and Rutgers did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.It does create additional opportunities for certain programs that heretofore have not had that kind of national prime-time exposure on Saturday night to maybe have that on Friday night, Rudner said.Among those are Illinois and Purdue, which say theyre on board with hosting Friday night games.There are traditionalists who say Friday is for high school football, but if we can get our product out there on national television when all eyes are on us, thats great for Purdue, Boilermakers spokesman Matthew Rector said.Minnesota athletic director Mark Coyle wrote in an email to The Associated Press, We will play the schedule assigned to us by the Big Ten.The Big Ten plans to announce the 2017 Friday night schedule within the next four to seven days.To give schoools adequate time to address logistical challenges, the Friday night games will be announced in early October of the preceding year. Cheap Tra Carson Jersey. The 2018 Friday games, for example, will be announced in October 2017.Friday night college football has become more common in recent years. There were 53 games on that night in 2014, 63 in 2015 and 65 this year. The Big 12, Pac-12 and Atlantic Coast Conference are among the leagues that play some games on Fridays.Penn State spokesman Jeff Nelson, noting the importance of high school football across the state, said his school would agree only to an occasional home day game on the Friday following Thanksgiving.Penn State athletic director Sandy Barbour said significant operational issues make Friday night football in Happy Valley a no go. Barbour pointed out that fans generally travel more than an hour to get to the stadium. She also said shutting down the school on a Friday was not an option.Illinois spokesman Kent Brown said coach Lovie Smith and the football office emailed high school football coaches in the state explaining the situation.There is no sacred day of the week for any sports event anymore, Brown said, noting a lot of high schools play on Saturdays.Rudner said Delany called the executive directors of the state high school athletic associations in each of the 11 Big Ten states to personally explain the conferences decision.Wisconsin Football Coaches Association President Tony Biolo said his organization is opposed to the Big Tens plan.Friday nights to me has just been about the high school portion of it, and sort of let our kids be the star attraction that night, Biolo said.Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said even though his school agreed to host Friday night games on a limited basis, the Big Tens move was necessary to increase exposure.We avoided it for years, Smith said.

ST. Vans Toy Story Woody . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A month ago, Rays starter Jake Odorizzi was the epitome of frustration, leading the majors in no-decisions with only three wins in 19 starts. He was mentioned as a trade target at the deadline, but stayed as Tampa Bay dealt Matt Moore to the Giants instead.Since the All-Star break, hes been one of the best pitchers in the American League -- 4-0 with a 1.66 ERA that is an American League-best for a pitcher with 25 or more innings. Hes struck out 33 batters while walking seven, part of a resurgent starting rotation thats helped the Rays play .500 baseball since the break.And as much as facing the team with the ALs best record would seem to slow that down, Odorizzi (7-5, 3.72 this season) has fared well against the Rangers prior to Fridays meeting. In three career starts, hes 2-0 with a 1.37 ERA, and that drops to 0.71 in two appearances at Tropicana Field.The Rays hope to regain some momentum after seeing a four-game win streak end with Fridays 6-2 loss.Pretty disappointing game to say the least, Rays manager Kevin Cash said after Fridays game. We got outpitched, outhit, outdefended. They didnt make any mental mistakes; we made a handful. So a pretty disappointing effort.Heading in the opposite direction from Odorizzi is Rangers starter A.J. Griffin, who comes in 5-2 with 4.68 ERA, but has seen his effectiveness drop consistently as the season progresses.Griffin had four quality starts in his first five appearances, but none in his last 11. The same pitcher who had a 2.93 ERA at the end of June had a 5.84 ERA in July and has a 7.41 ERA in August.A big part of that struggle has been a consistent inability to avoid the home-run ball -- he gave up just two home runs in his first six starts, but has allowed at least one in 10 straight starts, including seven in his last three outings. His last start saw him give up 11 hits -- including three home runs -- for six runs in a 7-0 loss to the Tigers.The Rangers havent had many weaknesses, but starting off road trips poorly has been one of them. Coming out of the All-Star break, they dropped six of their first seven on the road, and opened their next road trip losing three of four. So to open a five-game road swing with an emphatic victory Friday night was encouraging for manager Jeff Banister.I feel good about how theyre playing in general, but obviously we need to continue to play well on the road, Banister said after their fifth straight road victory. We get an opportunity (next week) to go home and play where we like to play, but we need to play better on the road. Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Essential Blanc . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. Air Max 90 Vt Qs Tokyo . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. . -- Quarterback Will Finch threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns, and Yannick Harou rushed in two scores as the No. The BCCI has called for a Special General Meeting (SGM) on October 15 in Delhi to discuss the interim order passed by the Supreme Court last week. The order had given the board and state associations to respond by October 17 whether they would unconditionally comply with the Lodha Committees recommendations.This weeks SGM is the second such emergent meeting called by the BCCI in the last two weeks. At the last SGM, on October 1, the BCCI had decided to conditionally adopt some of the recommendations which further infuriated the court.Consequently, the three-judge bench of the Supreme Court alerted the BCCI not to precipitate matters during the hearing last Friday. The court also asked the board to stop issuing funds to errant state associations which did not implement the recommendations.Despite the pressing directive and the urgency sought from the court, both BCCI as well as most states associations continued to remain stoic and unaffected. Incidentally, the boards notice on the SGM only reached the state associations on Monday. Also, president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke are currently in Cape Town attending ICC meetings from October 10 to 14.Officials at both BCCI and state associations ESPNcricinfo spoke to pointed out that certain discrepancies between the July 18 court order passed by the court and the Lodha Committee report that was released on January 4. The board is likely to point out the same during the next hearing on October 17 when the court reconvenes after the Dussehra holidays.One legal loophole, Shirke pointed out, was whereas earlier in the Lodha report state associations were given one year, the July 18 court order prescribed a maximum of six months to implement the recommendations. Shirke said it only created confusion. The legal difficulties are that the committee has given the state associations one year, Shirke told the Sunday Express. Now suddenly, they have made it deadline-bound. Has the one-year deadline been withdrawn by the SC? We dont know. It hasnt been informed. Now, todays order of the Supreme Court says, as we didnt submit the affidavit, they had to stop the money. In light of all this, theres confusion.In the Lodha report, referring to grounds for sanction and derecognition of a member, the committee had said: No Member shall be entitled to any grant from the BCCI if its Constitution fails to provide for, or comply with the following within One Year after the Effective Date. The following was essentially the new governance structure suggested by the committee for which the states wouldd first need to amend their constitution. Vans Noir Old Skool. owever, a basic reading of the court order makes it clear the court had designated the Lodha Committee to oversee and direct the implementation of the recommendations at both BCCI and state level within a reasonable period ranging between four and six months from the July 18 order. So far, only two official Full Members, Vidarbha Cricket Association and Tripura Cricket Association, have adopted the recommendations unanimously. Rajasthan Cricket Association, which is not recognised by BCCI since it elected Lalit Modi (banned by BCCI) as its president, was the first to adopt the recommendations. However, most of bigger state associations remain defiant.A former BCCI office bearer, who is currently head of a state association, was irritated when asked if he was bothered by the last weeks court directive which asked the BCCI to stop issuing funds to the states. There is no difficulty we - states - face, he said. Lodha Committee has given a particular recommendation about the states. In the Supreme Court judgement, para 61, the court has said it accepts the rights of a citizens under Article 19 (1) (c) to form an association and the court will not interfere.The official pointed out that the court had said the BCCI could not be granted the same immunity under Article 19(1) (c) since it is a private body performing a public function. The court has now asked BCCI to stop giving funds to state associations that do not comply with the recommendations set by the Lodha Committee. But if I dont (comply) nobody can touch me. The board will not pay me money, but that money can only be boards money. If the money belongs to the states, the court cannot stop us.The official said that if his state association were to host an international match, he has the right to get the money that the BCCI earns from the broadcasting rights. We are holding the match. BCCI is only negotiating on our behalf.A senior lawyer, who is well conversant with the BCCI constitution, said the state association president had misread and misinterpreted the clause. The lawyer pointed out he had heard the same reasoning being given by more than one state association. Everyone has a right to freedom of association under Article 19 (1) (c), but once you have associated the court has said nothing stops it from regulating you (the state association) after you carry out a public function, the lawyer said. 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 ' ' '

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- With defenseman Hampus Lindholm finally under contract, the Anaheim Ducks will seek their fourth win in five games when they play host to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night at the Honda Center.Lindholm, a restricted free agent, signed a six-year contract worth $31.5 million on Thursday. The agreement makes Lindholm the Ducks highest-paid defenseman after he led the team with 115 blocked shots while scoring 10 goals last season.Im really happy to be back in Anaheim, Lindholm said on a conference call from his native Sweden. Theres where Ive been all my career so Im really happy to be back with the team and everyone.But before Lindholm rejoins the team, the 22-year-old Swede must get a work visa while general manager Bob Murray resolves the salary-cap problems resulting from the calculates that Anaheim exceeds the salary cap by $1.4 million, even after placing defenseman Simon Despres and center Nate Thompson on long-term injured reserve. Nevertheless, Murray believes re-signing Lindholm was imperative to maintaining the Ducks status as contenders.It solidifies this organization, Murray told Hampus is a really good young hockey player. Hes part of the future of this franchise. Hes only going to get better.Murray also implied that Lindholms signing represents at least the beginning of the Ducks last stand with their current roster.We wanted to get it at a fair number for the organization so we could try to move forward with this group as best we can, he told I wanted to give this group another shot. Im going to do everything in my power to keep it that way.That includes managing the salary cap while concentrating on winning the teams second Stanley Cup.Its going to be an interesting experience, Murray told But Im going to do the best I can to give this group one last shot at this. Cheap Flames Jerseys China. .Another recently signed restricted free agent, center Rickard Rakell, practiced with his teammates for the first time Wednesday.

Center Ryan Getzlaf might miss his second consecutive contest after a shot hit him in the left forearm Tuesday night against the San Jose Sharks.Columbus enters the game after Thursday nights 3-1 loss in San Jose. The Blue Jackets 2-3-1 record provides a radical contrast from last years 0-8 start, and reflects a renewed emphasis on conditioning to deal with the NHLs increasing speed.Everybody looks quicker, Columbus forward Nick Foligno told the Columbus Dispatch. To a guy, you definitely feel quicker and lighter on your skates. But its more than that, too. Its the way were playing. Were trying to play faster and think faster and be faster with our heads, not just faster with our feet.Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella believes mental quickness can compensate for physical speed.If youre even a little bit slower than the other teams -- as far as just foot speed -- but you have a mindset of playing quick, I think you can be a quick team, Tortorella told the Dispatch. Were certainly trying to play quick.That quickness begins with the Blue Jackets defensemen sending the puck up the ice more rapidly and avoiding lateral passes. Tortorella described his goal using a metaphorical compass.Were just trying to be as north-south as we can, he told the Dispatch, and try to get away from going D to D and traveling east to west as much. 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 ' ' '
