  • Masked-man Irving leads Celtics to 13th win in a rowDateWed Nov 15, 2017 10:26 pm
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    Masked man Kyrie Irving scored 25 points to lead the Boston Celtics to their 13th consecutive NBA victory on Tuesday with a 109-102 http://www.officialastrosshop.com/authentic-15-carlos-beltran-jersey.html triumph at Brooklyn.The Celtics, whose 13-2 record is the NBA's best, are on their longest win streak since winning 14 in a James Young Womens Jersey row in November and December of 2010, with the team record of 19 consecutive wins coming in November and December of 2008.

    Irving suffered a facial fracture Friday in Boston's 90-87 victory over Charlotte when Australian teammate Aron Baynes elbowed him accidentally. That forced the 25-year-old guard to miss Sunday's 95-94 victory over Toronto.

    A plastic protective mask allowed Irving onto the court against the Nets and he responded by hitting 8-of-20 from the field http://www.authenticoilersshoponline.com/authentic-6-adam-larsson-jersey.html and 7-of-8 from the free throw line as all five Boston starters scored in double figures
    "It's a piece of plastic on your James Young Womens Jersey face," Irving said. "It's the difference in having something over your http://www.basketballofficialonline.com/Team/Authentic_Stephen_Curry_Jersey.html face. It's almost like having James Young Womens Jersey somewhat foggy blinders on."When I take off the mask, I can see everything. When I have the mask on, I'm really dialed into what's in front of me, my peripherals are a little cut off, but it's just something you get you used to."
    Irving, who joined the Celtics in an off-season trade with Cleveland, wore a mask for 19 games with the Cavaliers in the 2012-13 season."Just wearing a mask for precautionary reasons," Irving said. "Hopefully, it'll get better in the next few weeks."
    When Tuesday's game was over, Irving pulled the mask of his face and saluted Boston fans who were chanting "M-V-P, M-V-P," -- for Most Valuable Player -- at him."I don't worry about him getting a rhythm too much," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "He'll find that and obviously he made huge plays late in the game again."
    Marcus Morris added 21 points and 10 rebounds while Al Horford contributed 17 points and 11 rebounds for Boston and called Irving's return "great" for the Celtics."Just finding his way and http://www.officialhockeyknights.com/Teemu-Pulkkinen-Jersey-Adidas doing what he does, making big plays for us, coming through and sealing the game," Horford said.
    The Celtics have not lost since dropping their home opener to Milwaukee on October 18, a night after Gordon Hayward was lost for the season with a horrendous knee injury in an opening-night loss at Cleveland.At Houston, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points to lead six Raptors in double figures as the Canadian club downed James Young Womens Jersey the host Rockets 129-113, snapping Houston's six-game win streak.Kyle Lowry and C.J. Miles scored 19 points each for Toronto, Miles coming off the bench to sink 6-of-9 shots from 3-point range.
    James Harden led Houston (11-4) with 38 points and 11 assists, going 19-of-19 from the free throw line.At Dallas, LaMarcus Aldridge scored 32 points and Australian guard Patty Mills added 19 to spark the San Antonio Spurs over the Dallas Mavericks 97-91.The Spurs, still playing without star French guard Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard, improved to 9-5. The Mavericks fell to 2-13.


  • Ranking NFL teams that could swap QBs in 2018DateWed Nov 15, 2017 6:14 pm
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    Rank NFL teams by the likelihood of an offseason quarterback change, and you'll realize nearly half the league could justify entering the market.

    There won't be that many teams ultimately if decision-makers conclude they could actually be worse off paying the next Mike Glennon instead of upgrading the supporting cast and defense sufficiently to support a lower-tier starter. But teams will still draft quarterbacks early, as they always do, and the veteran market could be appealing if an Alex Smith or Kirk Cousins becomes available.

    Here's a run through all 32 teams, starting with those most likely to make a change next season.Officials have provoked Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict at least three times in the past month, according to a teammate who http://www.bruinsofficialauthentic.com/Austin_Czarnik_Jersey_Adidas came to Burfict's defense Monday.The Bengals player said he has heard officials cursing at Burfict http://www.falconsfootballofficialonline.com/Matt-Bosher-Jersey.html on multiple occasions, and there is http://www.broncosofficialfootball.com/Todd_Davis_Jersey_Broncos video that shows officials coming into contact with the linebacker three times in the past four games.
    An NFL spokesman denied those charges Monday, saying it Authentic Lavonte David Jersey is not unusual for officials to come into contact with players and that there has been nothing unusual involving officials' interactions with Burfict.But over the past month, according to a source close to Burfict, the Bengals linebacker has grown increasingly upset with officials' treatment of him and feels he is being singled out by officials.
    Burfict has complained to Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, a member of the league's competition committee, but those complaints have not been brought to the league office, an NFL spokesman said Monday.Lewis, for his part, said Monday that he doesn't believe officials are antagonizing Burfict.
    "Officials have a job to do, and I've explained this to Vontaze, and he understands that," Lewis said. "They have a job to do and they are going to separate players, and players are in a situation where they are there. That's not what this is about, where the NFL should be. So, get back to the huddle and get going, and that's the most important thing. We don't need to jaw with anyone after the play, any of the players, so that's important.
    "It would http://www.officialnationalshop.com/authentic-34-bryce-harper-jersey.html shock me if those things occur," Lewis continued. "I know on Lavonte David Jersey occasions supposedly they have, but again, that would shock me."Officials made contact with Burfict in an Oct. 22 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, again in a Nov. 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and then in Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, during which Burfict was ejected for the first time in his career.
    In the Authentic Lavonte David Jersey second quarter of the Bengals' 24-20 loss to Tennessee, Burfict was involved in a shoving match with a Titans Authentic Lavonte David Jersey offensive lineman. Down judge Jeff Bergman had a hand out to hold Burfict back during the altercation, and Burfict knocked his hand away.The league does not plan to suspend Burfict for making contact with Bergman, a source confirmed to ESPN.


  • Gianluigi Buffon retires as Italy lose to SwedenDateWed Nov 15, 2017 5:11 pm
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    A tearful Gianluigi Buffon said he was "sorry for all of Italian football" as he led a wave of international retirements after a World Cup play-off defeat by Sweden.Italy were held to a 0-0 draw in Milan and failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.Buffon, 39, said: "It's a shame my last official game coincided with the failure to qualify for the World Cup.

    "Blame is shared equally between everyone. There can't be scapegoats."Buffon's Juventus team-mate Andrea Barzagli and Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi also ended their Italy careers, while Juve defender Giorgio Chiellini is expected to join them. The quartet have won 461 caps between them.

    Goalkeeper Buffon made 175 appearances for his country in a 20-year career - lifting the World Cup in 2006 - and believes the future could still be bright for the four-time world champions."There is certainly a future for Italian football because we have pride, ability, determination and after bad tumbles, we always find a way to get back on our feet," he Alex Lewis Jersey said.
    Italy manager Giampiero Ventura - under contract until 2020 - did not speak to national television after the defeat but arrived Alex Lewis Jersey at a news conference 90 minutes after full-time."I have not resigned because I haven't spoken to the president yet," Ventura, 69, said.
    "I'm sorry for being late, but every player I had the privilege of working with, I wanted to salute individually."Resignation? I have to evaluate an infinity of issues. We will meet with the federation and discuss it."Barzagli, 36, said it was "painful" to "leave this group http://www.ramsofficialsonline.com/Troy_Hill_Jersey_Cheap of lads".
    He added: "I don't know what we missed. All I know is we're out http://authenticsenatorsshop.com/milan-michalek-jersey_c-421.html of the World Cup. It's a unique disappointment."The era of four or five veterans comes to a close, the one of the hungry http://www.authenticcapitalshop.com/authentic-43-tom-wilson-jersey.html young players coming through begins and that's how it should be."
    There was a bizarre moment late in the game when De Rossi was asked to warm up but pointed instead at Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne, a player Ventura refused to call upon despite pressure from Italian media and supporters."I just said we were near the end and had to win, so send the strikers to warm up!" said De Rossi. "I pointed to Insigne too."I just thought perhaps it was better that Insigne come on instead."Ultimately, De Rossi, 34, was not used either as Italy failed in their search for the goal that would have taken the tie to extra time.
    Italy's leading Alex Lewis Jersey sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport said the result brought the arrival of the "apocalypse".The article said: "We will not be with you and you will not be with us. A love so great must Alex Lewis Jersey be reserved for other things. Italy will not participate at the World Cup."It is time to start thinking about what else we can do in June: concerts, cinema, village festivals. Anything but watching Sweden play at the World Cup - that would be too painful."


  • Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick to make their markDateWed Nov 15, 2017 12:40 am
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    Martin O'Neill has called on Euro 2016 stars Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick to recover their French form and drive Ireland to the World Cup by inspiring a victory over Denmark tonight.The Ireland manager believes the midfield pair are capable of moving up a level from their performances in regular qualifying with suspensions and a loss of form limiting the Burnley duo's influence.

    They still played their part in key moments with Hendrick creating the winner in Wales and Brady assisting equalisers against Georgia and Serbia.But the manager has challenged the childhood friends to do more."Some players maybe in certain games haven't played as strongly as they have (before) but that's just part of the whole game," said O'Neill, responding to a query about Brady by bringing his club-mate into the discussion too.

    "This is where we've arrived, Alex English Jersey this is where we're at now, and it will need big http://www.authenticseattlemariners.com/Ichiro-Suzuki-Jersey performances in the Aviva."Robbie, Jeff and I think all those boys who forged great reputations in the Euros know Alex English Jersey that but they should take something from it (French memories). While every minute has not been glorious for them, they are still capable of doing it."
    O'Neill believes that Ireland might need to score twice to advance with last Saturday's scoreless draw in Copenhagen leaving them vulnerable if Denmark manage to score an away goal.He said Ireland will take a more expansive approach but that was questioned by his opposite number Age Hareide who believes that Ireland will be equally conservative.
    And O'Neill's old team-mate stoked the fire by indicating that he would find it hard to send out a side with what he believes to be the Irish mindset."I think they'll play in the same way," said the Norwegian."I don't expect them to go Alex English Jersey higher than they http://www.officialauthentic49ershop.com/womens_roger_craig_jersey did in Copenhagen, they just want us to make a mistake. That's OK.
    But stand-in Irish skipper David Meyler - who returns from the suspension that kept him out of the first game - offered a bullish take from the home camp."We're going to go and try and win the game and I believe we will," said the Corkman."This is what you dream of as a kid. We need to go and perform now and I fully believe we'll be going to Russia."
    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 24 points and grabbed 13 rebounds while Jimmy Butler added 21 points Alex English Jersey and 10 assists to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves over host Utah 109-98.C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic each scored 17 points to lead the Portland trail Blazers over visiting Denver 99-82.John Wall scored 21 points on 8-of-9 shooting, including 4-of-4 from 3-point range, as the Washington Wizards http://www.authenticclevelandindians.com/Eddie-Robinson-Jersey downed visiting Sacramento 110-92. Marcin Gortat had 18 points and Otto Porter added http://www.texansproshops.com/Derek_Newton_Jersey_Cheap 15 for the Wizards (8-5), who won their third consecutive game.

    LeBron James scored 23 points and reserve guard Kyle Korver added 21 as the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied from a 24-point deficit Monday to edge the New York Knicks 104-101.Four-time NBA Most Valuable Player James added 12 assists and nine rebounds for the http://www.officialtigersproshop.com/WOMENS-NICK-CASTELLANOS-JERSEY.html visiting http://www.officialyankeesproshop.com/Alex_Rodriguez_Jersey Cavs, who were down by two dozen points in the third quarter before storming back for the victory.

    Trailing 97-92, the Cavaliers went on a 10-0 run to grab the lead, James sinking a step-back 3-pointer to give Cleveland a 100-97 edge with 83 Chris Tierney Jersey seconds remaining, their first lead since 25-24 in the second quarter.

    "I thought his defense is what turned it," Korver said of James. "He's always going to get in the paint and make plays. That is where he is Chris Tierney Jersey really special. He is able to do everything. And he showed that in the fourth quarter."
    Korver, who sank two 3-pointers in the last 4:35, made four late free throws to offset baskets by Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jnr. James missed two late free throws but Jeff Green grabbed the rebound for Cleveland to deny the Knicks a potential tying shot at the buzzer.
    Dwyane Wade added 15 off the bench for Cleveland while Hardaway led New York with 28 points and Porzingis added 20."King" James bumped French teen guard Frank Ntilikina early in the game and New York teammate Enes Kanter, a Turkish Chris Tierney Jersey center, stood toe-to-toe with James, continuing a spat that began on social media that extended to post-game comments.
    "You can't just come in and mess with a rookie like that. Mess with a grown man," Kanter said. "You can call yourself King, Queen, Princess, whatever, but you can't punk us."Told of the remarks, James said, "We got the win. I'm not going to say that guy's name again."
    Greek star Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 27 points to lead the Milwaukee Chris Tierney Jersey Bucks to a 110-103 victory over visiting Memphis. John Henson and Khris Middleton each added 17 for Milwaukee while Tyreke Evans led the Grizzlies with 27, http://www.footballbillsofficial.com/Jordan-Matthews-Jersey 14 of them in the fourth quarter.
    New Orleans forward Darius Miller sank four 3-pointers in the final 5:45 and netted 14 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter to lift host New Orleans over Atlanta 106-105. E'Twaun Moore led the Pelicans with 24 points and DeMarcus Cousins added 22 http://www.raidersnflproshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_TIM_BROWN_JERSEY.html points, 16 rebounds and seven assists.Jordan Clarkson scored 25 points in 25 minutes off the bench to help the Los Angeles Lakers defeat host Phoenix 100-93.

    Slaughtneil Robert Emmets held Brett Pesce Jersey their gala dinner last Saturday night. There were http://www.pacersprostore.com/WOMENS-MARK-JACKSON-JERSEY.html over 800 people there. "It's like the Third Reich," said Gerry Donnelly.They are All-Ireland senior camogie champions, as well as Ulster senior hurling and football champions. But they are much more than that. Irish speakers, communitarians and socialists, they are loyal to their place and people, but at the same time would give you the shirt off their backs. Henry Shefflin was the guest of honour and he was visibly taken aback by the whole experience.

    There were people there from clubs all over the county. After the meal, Gerry Donnelly did an interesting and funny Q&A with Henry. With a straight face, he said: "Henry, with next year's dinner dance at Ballyragget already sold out, is there any chance you could squeeze me two tickets?" He asked Henry about Cody's philosophy. Henry said: "He never once mentioned winning to us. He just said we were brothers and we would build an unbreakable spirit."

    It is worth remembering that during the hunger strikes, Slaughtneil pulled their teams out of all competitions as a mark of solidarity with their neighbours. They didn't even have a hunger striker. Their seniors - the jewel in their crown - were relegated to intermediate for the next season as a result. In Dungiven, where we had two hunger strikers, we never forgot that.
    When my sister Nodlaig went to Slaughtneil over a decade ago to ask for their support in revitalising Dungiven, they showed us what they had done and http://www.bearsofficialauthentic.com/YOUTH+KENDALL+WRIGHT+JERSEY since that moment, have advised us at every step on the way. In Dungiven, we now have three Irish schools, from nursery to secondary, and the town is coming alive. Out with the Manchester United jerseys, in with the language, the music (we even have a harp school), the football and the hurling.
    Ray McCartney, one of the best human beings I have known, was taken off the first hunger strike on Brett Pesce Jersey his 53rd day, when they thought they had a deal. By that stage, he was almost blind and very close to death. After 30 days the body starts to consume itself.
    A few days before the gala, Ray emailed me a black and white photo of three small boys together, wearing shorts, arms around each other, smiling broadly. "Who are they?" was his challenge. The photo was hazy, but I recognised the one on the left immediately. "Kevin Lynch," I texted. "Who are the others?" I was beaten. I had to send it to my father. Not 30 seconds later, he came back "Eugene, Oisin and Pauline Hassan." I was kicking myself.
    Looking at the photo brought me back to those terrible days in '81. I have never been able to bring myself to watch anything about the hunger strikes. I couldn't watch the movie Hunger with Michael Fassbender, and although I taped the recent Bobby Sands: 66 Days documentary, in the end I deleted it. I have often spoken to Ray about how he managed to come through it all. He says the strength of their bond made their spirit unbreakable. "All of us were in it together. That's how we coped."
    Eugene Hassan, who is in the photo, was one of the strongest men who ever played for us. In the 1982 county final against Ballinderry, which was probably the greatest unlicensed prize fight ever seen on Irish soil, Eugene was our number six. The referee's report http://www.titansauthenticsofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_BEN_JONES_JERSEY.html after the drawn game said: "This was one game not played in the spirit of the Gael. Had it not been for the fact it was a county final, I would have blown it up after 10 minutes, by which time there were fist fights going on in Brett Pesce Jersey every part of the field."


  • Victory only highlights what Ferrari could have wonDateTue Nov 14, 2017 7:27 pm
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    Vettel led all http://www.officialauthenticknights.com/Adidas-Authentic-Brad-Hunt-Jersey but 13 of the 71 laps, and was only not in front on those because of Lewis Hamilton's off-set strategy as the Mercedes driver fought back through the field from his pit-lane start.It was always close between Vettel and Bottas - the Finn rarely more than two seconds behind - and both men believed the race was decided at the start, when the Ferrari got the jump on the Mercedes and sneaked ahead into the first corner.

    As such, it http://www.eaglesofficialsshop.com/Nelson_Agholor_Jersey_Cheap was a reflection of the year as a whole - little to choose between the silver car and red on absolute pace, races decided on small details or twists of fate.It underlined that the way the championship was settled, in Hamilton's favour, with three races to go belied the truth of the season, which was of an intense fight between two evenly matched teams and their leading drivers.

    All year, it had looked as if Hamilton and Vettel would contest the championship right up to the final race in Abu Dhabi. They did not because Ferrari and their driver imploded, especially over the three Asian races in Singapore, Japan and Malaysia. And Vettel's moment of madness in driving deliberately into Hamilton in Baku http://www.arizonacoyotesofficialonline.com/Adidas-Lawson-Crouse-Jersey back in June hardly helped.
    Baku turned an easy win into a fourth place - that was 13 points thrown away. Singapore was a race that appeared to be Vettel's Brandon Shell Jersey on a plate, only for him to provoke a pile-up at the first corner. That was 25 points gone.
    Then an Brandon Shell Jersey engine failure in qualifying in Malaysia, another race Ferrari had the pace to dominate, put Vettel at the back of the grid, and he finished fourth. Another 13 points gone. And then Japan, a spark plug failure, and a second place lost. Another 18 Brandon Shell Jersey points.
    That's 69 points mislaid, plus the extra points the three Asian issues handed Hamilton on a plate. After Brazil, Vettel is 43 points adrift of Hamilton, who without those Ferrari problems would never have built the lead he needed to clinch the title so early.
    After the Hungarian Grand Prix in July, Vettel and Hamilton were tied on four wins each out of 11 races. But until Sunday in Sao Paulo, Vettel had not won since and the pressure was mounting on the Italian team.
    Before this race, Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne, as tough a taskmaster as they come, had made clear his disappointment with the way the season had developed."I don't http://www.nflsteelersofficialstore.com/Nike-Antonio-Brown-Jersey.html believe in bad luck," Marchionne said. "Ultimately, it was a reflection on the way in which we managed the businesses. It was a combination, especially in the Brandon Shell Jersey second half of there season between technical issues and driver errors, or driver misjudgements."
    What Ferrari badly needed in these last two races of the season was to prove they could win again, that they had not gone completely off the rails. If nothing else, as one insider put it after the race, "to get you lot (the media) off our backs."

    Teddy Riner, France's heavyweight judoka, won his 10th world title beating Byron Maxwell Jersey Belgian Toma Nikiforov in the final of openweight world championships in Marrakech.The 28-year-old, who weighs 142kg, comfortably outclassed and outweighed his opponent who usually completes in the -100kg category.

    Riner maintained his record unbeaten streak that stretches back to September 2010.Seven Byron Maxwell Jersey years ago, Riner lost to Japanese fighter Daiki Kamikawa in the final of the openweight championships and he has not looked back ever since.
    Riner had already become the most successful judoka of all time when he won his eighth gold medal at the world championships in 2015 and to top that achievement, he won his ninth world championships gold in Budapest just two months ago.
    The French judoka is a two-time Olympic champion, having won gold medal in 2012 London Olympics and 2016 Rio Olympics.After settling for bronze in 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, http://www.nikeminnesotavikingstore.com/ben-gedeon-jersey-for-sale-c-70.html Riner came back in the 2012 London Olympics to win the top prize by beating Russia's Alexander Mikhaylin.

    Lewis Hamilton's first race as a four-times Formula One world champion will be from the back of the grid after the Briton dumped his Mercedes into the barriers in Brazilian Grand Prix qualifying on Saturday.
    It was his error, and a rare one for Britain's most successful driver of all time, but at least it came with both titles already won and with plenty of fun still to be had on Sunday."Mistakes can happen, Lewis for sure is really upset about himself but things can happen," said Niki Lauda, the team's non-executive chairman, after Hamilton crashed without setting a lap time.
    The incident left Mercedes, who had started the day dealing with the aftermath of mechanics being held up by armed robbers as they left the track on Friday night, having to seek permission from the stewards for Hamilton to race.
    In one of the least surprising pieces of paper ever to emanate from the offices of the governing body, a statement was duly issued that the stewards had accepted the request given that he had set 'satisfactory times' http://www.sabresteamprostore.com/Dominik_Hasek_Jersey in practice.
    Hamilton, last year's winner from pole at Interlagos, had dominated both practice sessions on Friday and had been eyeing his 12th pole position of the season with every chance of a 10th win on Sunday.Instead, for the first time in 27 races, Hamilton failed to progress beyond the first phase of qualifying.The last time that happened was in Belgium in August 2016 when he had a 55 place engine-related grid penalty and completed just a handful of laps to qualify.


  • Tigers beat Red Warriors to avoid winless campaignDateTue Nov 14, 2017 12:56 am

    University of Santo Tomas (UST) avoided a winless campaign in UAAP Season 80 by escaping University of the East in a wild finish, 88-85, on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.It was the lone victory of the men's basketball tournament for the Growling Tigers, which lost 17 consecutive contests dating back to Season 79 before finally breaking through against the Red Warriors in their final game of Season 80.

    Steve Akomo http://www.official76ershop.com/authentic-23-justin-anderson-jersey.html did the heavy lifting for UST, tallying 18 points, 20 rebounds, three assists, and six blocked Mike Daniels Youth jersey shots in almost 35 minutes of playing time. Regie http://www.officiallachargers.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_KELLEN_WINSLOW_JERSEY.html Basibas, in his final game, scored a game-high 21 points on top of nine rebounds.

    "Siyempre masaya, hindi kami na-zero, 'di ba," embattled UST coach Boy Sablan said after they finished Season 80 with a 1-13 win-loss record – still the worst in the history of their program."Para sa akin, masarap 'yung feeling na nanalo," said UST guard Marvin Lee, who had 11 points in the win. "Sabi nga, parang nag-champion kami."
    The Tigers led nearly all the way, even going up by 14 points, 23-9, in the first quarter before the Red Warriors worked their way back into the contest. UST still led by 11 Mike Daniels Youth jersey points, 53-42, early in the third quarter, http://www.nflbillsofficialauthentic.com/Nike-Mike-Tolbert-Jersey.html but a 7-0 run anchored by Alvin Pasaol allowed UE to get back within striking distance.
    A floater by UE's Rey Acuno gave them a 60-59 lead, and it was a back-and-forth game from there on. The Tigers took the lead for good thanks to an 8-3 run that turned a 67-all deadlock into a 75-70 lead with 3:51 to go, but the Red Warriors still continued to threaten.
    An and-1 by Mark Maloles with 1:34 left made it a one-point game, 79-80, before Lee and Basibas made it a five-point game anew, 84-79, with under a minute to go. But a steal and a transition bucket by Philip Manalang, plus two charities from Maloles, again made it a one-point game with still 19.7 ticks left, 84-83.
    Lee knocked down two insurance charities, only for Akomo to make a blunder as he goal-tended JC Cullar's lay-up attempt. Fortunately for UST, Basibas also converted two clutch free throws, and Pasaol lost the ball as time expired, sending the lean UST crowd at the Big Dome into a frenzy.
    Eric Caunan contributed 14 points, and Christian Garcia added 10 markers for the Tigers.Pasaol led UE with 18 Mike Daniels Womens Jersey points, five rebounds, and five steals, but was unable to take charge for the Red Warriors the way he often did in Season 80. Jason Varilla had 16 points, while Maloles finished with 15 markers.The Red Warriors finished with a 3-11 slate, the same record that they had last season.


  • Hugo MacNeill on Evaluation reportDateTue Nov 14, 2017 12:07 am
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    Former Ireland international Hugo MacNeill has criticised the evaluation report from World Rugby's technical review group claiming that ranking Ireland as an equal security risk to South Africa is crazy.

    The Irish bid was given the same score under security as both South Africa and France, while Ireland's 13.63% represented the lowest score of the 'Tournament infrastructure' section of the report, which accounts for areas such as security, transport, accommodation, technology, rugby services and ticket strategy.

    MacNeill, who chaired the government's working group on the bid to host the 2023 World Cup, questioned how Ireland were scored the same as South Africa and France under http://www.mapleleafsofficialauthentic.com/Tim_Horton_Jersey_Adidas the security criteria when both countries trailed Ireland on the World Peace Index.
    "There was a lot of things that surprised us, and not only surprised Authentic Ricky Wagner Jersey us, but surprised a lot of people around the world, because we've got a lot feedback on this," McNeill said on Sunday Sport on RTÉ Radio 1."Ranking Ireland as an equal security risk to South Africa just seems crazy.

  • A tie defined by a refereeing controversyDateMon Nov 13, 2017 10:56 pm
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    The tie was decided by Ricardo Rodriguez's controversial penalty in Belfast as Michael O'Neill's team failed in their bid to reach back-to-back major tournaments for the first time.Northern Ireland came within inches of forcing extra time in injury time at the end of the tie, only for West Brom defender Jonny http://www.authentictorontobluejays.com/Marcus-Stroman-Jersey Evans to see his header hacked off the line by Rodriguez.

    Both sides wasted chances to score in a nervy contest at a rain-soaked St Jakob-Park, with Switzerland striker Haris Seferovic particularly guilty following a string of missed attempts.O'Neill's team failed to register a shot on target at Windsor Park in the first leg, but this was a far more adventurous display and, after several near misses from Chris Brunt in the first half, they were almost rewarded late on - only for Evans to be denied.

    The result secures Switzerland a place in Russia - their fourth consecutive World Cup - and means Northern Ireland's hopes of a fourth finals appearance are over.Northern Ireland's increased attacking intent in Basel came from their need to score to cancel out the Rodriguez penalty in the first leg, given for handball by Corry Evans when the ball clearly struck the midfielder on the back.
    That decision angered O'Neill and his players and the manager asked them to channel that ill-feeling to ensure it was not a moment they lived to regret.They did that with an energetic and determined performance.
    But against a Swiss side who had only lost at St Jakob-Park to England in 17 matches spanning 16 years, they were always up against it and, in truth, might have been out of the tie much earlier had Seferovic been more composed in front of goal."We've gone out to a Marcus Cooper Womens Jersey really poor decision in the first leg," said O'Neill. "We tried to keep the dream Marcus Cooper Womens Jersey alive and we were pushing for it.
    "The referee was very poor in the first leg - got the red card [decision not to send off Fabian Schar for a late tackle on Stuart Marcus Cooper Womens Jersey Dallas] wrong and the penalty wrong. It's a very sore way to lose. We deserved extra time."There's a devastated group of players in there but I couldn't be more proud of them."After a slow start to his Northern Ireland reign, O'Neill defied the odds to guide his side to the last 16 of Euro 2016.
    The 48-year-old signed a four-year contract that same year but, following this latest setback, the team could suffer another blow as their manager has been heavily linked with other jobs.He has Marcus Cooper Womens Jersey been discussed as a contender for the vacant Scotland and Sunderland posts, and offers are likely to come his way with his stock so high.It could also have been a final Northern Ireland bow for several players, including veteran defenders Aaron Hughes and Gareth McAuley.
    Hughes made his 109th international appearance in Basel, making him the most-capped defender from the home nations."I said to the players that they've got decisions to make http://www.ramsnflofficialproshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_TYLER_HIGBEE_JERSEY.html on their futures," http://www.miamidolphins.us.com/WOMENS-JAY-AJAYI-JERSEY.html said O'Neill. "But I've told them not to rush any decisions.

    Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel won the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday to solidify his hold on second place after Lewis Hamilton clinched the season title two weeks ago in Mexico City.It was Vettel's 47th career win and his fifth this season. It was also the German's third victory in Brazil.Vettel started second on the grid, but overtook pole sitter Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes on the first lap and then led most of the way.

    Real Madrid have finally decided to see their Welsh star out!With persistent injuries, Gareth Bale has missed a third of Real Madrid's games since joining the Madrid giants from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 in a then world record move of 100 million euros.
    With the latest injury possibly ruling him out for the rest of the year, it seems like the Madrid hierarchy have eventually lost patience.According to reports, Real Madrid have placed an 85 million euros price on Bale and are open for offers in order to see the injury-plagued star out.
    Manchester United are expected to be the front-runners in the deal having http://www.officialcarolinahurricanes.com/Adidas-Cam-Ward-Jersey missed out on the Welshman back in 2013.Four years ago, United had originally outbid Real Madrid when Tottenham Hotspur decided to sell Bale but the player chose to move to Spain.
    This time around, United will be on their toes and would want to lure Bale. However, any negotiation between Real Madrid and United is likely to feature United No.1 David de Gea.Apart from United, Chelsea will also be on alert as Antonio Conte would want Glenn Anderson Authentic Jersey to boost his side after a troubled start to their title defence.
    Spurs will not be left behind as Mauricio Pochettino surely admires the former star of the White Hart Lane.Bale has always had a troubled career in terms of http://www.officialauthenticdolphinsstore.com/Nike-Jawuan-James-Jersey.html injuries.While he suffered knee problems, back issues, torn ankle joint ligament, hamstring injuries and ankle injury in his time at the White Hart Lane, injuries have kept him out every year ever since he arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu.
    In his first year at the Bernabeu, he suffered a thigh injury that kept him out for two matches. In 2014, the count increased to three matches after he Glenn Anderson Authentic Jersey went down with a hamstring injury.In 2015, Bale missed out on a total of seven matches with a calf muscle injury but come 2016, Bale has been down and out.
    In the beginning of 2016, Bale's calf muscle problem reappeared and he went out for eight matches.In September 2016, he once again suffered a hip injury which again kept him out for two match.By the end of that year, Bale damaged his ankle tendons and sat out till February 2017 -- a durations that saw him missing 17 matches.
    2017 though has been the most cruel to Bale. He has had to see Real Madrid's Champions League double achievement from the bench and calf has been the recurrent issueBale's calf muscle strain has seen him miss a total of 18 matches since April 13 and with the hamstring tear currently, Bale might just see some football action back in England now.

    With Ateneo trailing by a single point against De La Salle University with 12.6 seconds left, Go freed himself up from Abu Tratter's defense and got himself wide open near the basket. He received the inbound pass from Anton Asistio, and was free for the bucket that could have given the Blue Eagles the lead

    But La Salle star Ben Mbala recovered quickly enough to bother him, and Go did one pump fake before attempting a hook shot that went short. Ricci Rivero collared the rebound, and Go could do nothing but foul the guard, sending him to the line.
    "I'm still trying to replay in my mind what I could have done," Go admitted after the game.
    A despondent Go could only fall into the Chris Godwin Jersey arms of Ateneo coach Sandy Arespacochaga, having blown a golden opportunity for the Blue Eagles. La Salle went on to claim a 79-76 victory, denying Ateneo a sweep of the UAAP Season 80 elimination round.
    Go acknowledged that his display of emotion afterward is a sign of his immaturity as a player, as he was unable to immediately move on and focus on the next play."Veteran players will just shake it off," he noted. http://www.officialauthenticcowboysstore.com/Nike-Chris-Jones-Jersey.html "But I think emotion overcame (me). I still held on to the past, I wasn't focusing on the next play or the next game."
    "Coach Tab (Baldwin) has really been preaching that we want to have no emotion, that http://www.footballseahawksprostore.com/Cliff-Avril-Jersey 'next play' mentality," he added. "Because if you hold on to that, that holds you."For Go, what happened in the closing seconds of their game against La Salle only showed that he has plenty of room to grow. Indeed, Arespacochaga told him to "keep your head up" after his mistake, but he still found himself dwelling on it.
    "I think that's where my immaturity still comes in," he said. "I'm a young player.""But that can't be the excuse," Go said. "If you let emotion overcome you, you don't think, you just act. That is something that I still have to learn."
    In the end, Go said he did not regret what happened, believing that it was "the best basketball play I could have done at the moment." Moreover, he showed that he was nothing if not a quick learner, as he is quickly moving on from the loss and shrugging off their failure to complete the sweep.
    "It's nice, of course, to have a 14-0 sweep," he said. "But we're Chris Godwin Jersey just looking at the next game.""The most important game is the next game."


  • Anthony Joshua v Deontay Wilder a certainty in 2018DateSun Nov 12, 2017 11:54 pm
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    Wilder called out Britain's IBF and WBA champion after defending his WBC title against Bermane Stiverne on Saturday.Hearn met Wilder's promoter in the USA on Thursday and urged the American to keep his financial demands realistic."We need middle ground between reality and fantasy," said Hearn. "If we can, I don't see problems making the fight."

    He added: "Unfortunately, Anthony has to overpay opponents. If we offered Deontay the correct purse for this fight it would never happen because he would think it was disrespectful."So we have to overpay him to make it happen. And we have to give him respect because he's a great fighter, a great champion, really exciting, a great self promoter."I feel a bit bad for him, he's got no promoter pushing him."Speaking to IFL TV, Hearn pointed to what he perceives as Wilder's limited profile in the United States by asking people on a New York street if they recognised the 32-year-old's name.
    Hearn emerged from his meeting with Wilder's team on Thursday stating there was a "desire" from both camps to "make this happen".He was unable to clarify if it would be Joshua's next fight or if a summer bout is more likely but stressed a meeting between the two unbeaten fighters would be the "biggest fight in world boxing", adding: "Joshua wants this fight bad, Wilder wants it bad as well."
    Hearn added: "It's going to happen in 2018, absolutely no question. You can't get away with not making fights any more because when you do you wake up to a million tweets."Joshua, whose past two bouts have been in front of about 90,000 fans at Wembley Keenan Robinson Womens Jersey Stadium and over 70,000 at Wales' Principality Stadium, is keen to http://www.texansprosshop.com/Dj_Reader_Jersey_Cheap keep fighting in the UK.Fighting overseas has been mooted by the 28-year-old's management but Hearn concedes any move to Las Vegas to face Keenan Robinson Womens Jersey Wilder would result in higher-priced tickets because the venues in the American city are substantially smaller than UK options.
    Should the fight take place next, the winner would hold three of the four major titles in the heavyweight division, with New Zealand's Joseph Parker in possession of the WBO belt.On Wednesday, Joshua told former heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury to lose weight on social media.Briton Fury, who was not beaten but instead relinquished three of the four major titles after defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, has made no secret of his need to lose between six and seven stone if he is to return to the Keenan Robinson Womens Jersey sport.
    In a video message, he responded to a post on Twitter by Joshua, saying: "A message to the weight lifter, big Anthony Joshua, the tough man. I don't need to get fit for someone like you. I've seen what you're about. Useless, no gas, no stamina, too many weights."Fury has not fought since facing Klitschko and is without a boxing licence.
    The 29-year-old tested positive for a banned steroid in June 2016, and says the adverse result came from eating uncastrated wild boar. A legal battle http://www.panthersshopsnflonline.com/SUPER-BOWL-ED-DICKSON-JERSEY with UK Anti-Doping over the evidence has meant Fury has not fought for two years.In October 2016, Fury gave up his world titles to focus on mental health problems and the British Boxing Board of Control suspended his licence "pending further investigation into anti-doping and medical issues".
    Hearn has asked for patience from fans calling on Fury to face Joshua, saying: "Forget the Anthony Joshua fight for him for now, get Tyson Fury back on the horse."Get him in big fights, get him up there in the rankings. Let the public believe the words and the hype again rather than just listening to it on social media."He's a great fighter, a great guy - but too many people have heard 'I'm coming back'. Let's show them the actions."


  • 'I'm surprised he is employed by the FAI'DateSun Nov 12, 2017 10:14 pm
    Topic by pinkpink. Forum: Forum News

    Denmark legend Peter Schmeichel has aimed a number of barbs at Roy Keane, Martin O'Neill's tactics and the Irish side that performed heroics http://www.officialchicagoblackhawks.com/Adidas-Glenn-Hall-Jersey under Jack Charlton.When it comes to direct questions about his old sparring partner Keane, however, Schmeichel clams up, unwilling to add further fuel to the fire stirred by the Ireland assistant boss earlier in the week - relations have been strained since the pair had an infamous late-night skirmish on a pre-season tour in 1998.

    Asked if he was surprised that Keane was operating as a No 2 given his celebrated leadership qualities so evident Janoris Jenkins Youth jersey in their Old Trafford days, Schmeichel responded curtly: "I have absolutely no answer to that because why would I be surprised? I'm surprised he is employed by the FAI. Maybe they kissed and made up. I don't know."
    The implication was that Keane and Schmeichel have never kissed and made up; and the Dane continued in mischievous vein.Asked how tonight's teams compare to the star-studded Irish and Danish sides that clashed in the World Cup '94 qualifiers, drawing twice, Schmeichel was unequivocal.
    "They don't," he said, before aiming a dig at the genealogical make-up of Jack Charlton's side. "Half of them weren't even Irish, you know? They knew somebody who was Irish."His analysis of the play-off includes another barb, albeit one that will offer further succour to Ireland fans: "Traditionally we struggle with teams that park the bus."
    Christian Eriksen is widely acknowledged as the biggest threat Janoris Jenkins Youth jersey to Ireland's World Cup hopes, but according to Schmeichel, the Tottenham play-maker has "disappeared" in 60 of his 73 internationals.So that's the good news: the only world-class player on either side in tomorrow night's play-off first leg delivers for his country less than 20pc of the time.
    The bad news is that Schmeichel reckons that most of Eriksen's influential displays have come since Age Hareide took over as Denmark manager in March last year.Asked if he was worried that Eriksen could be nullified by Ireland, Manchester United legend Schmeichel said: "Christian has played about 75 times for Denmark and that's happened about 60 Janoris Jenkins Youth jersey times. He's just disappeared."But that was under a different manager, a different system. He has been played out of position and has been dictated to play in a certain way, which has been very difficult for him."But now it's different, now Christian is more free in his role. He can roam around and play his game, and that's worked really well for Christian in the last four months."
    In those last four months, Denmark won three http://www.officialvikingsjerseysstore.com/Brian_Robison_Jersey_Cheap successive games - including a 4-0 thrashing of pool winners Poland, ranked No 6 in the world - to secure a play-off berth, before a dead-rubber draw with Romania. Eriksen scored in all four games to bring his http://www.authenticphillieshop.com/authentic-99-mitch-williams-jersey.html pool tally to eight.
    "That was our best game for many years," says Schmeichel of the Poland result, explaining that the Danes' renaissance after several years in the doldrums stems from a return to a more traditional, direct style.Schmeichel was just as impressed with the 1-0 win away to Montenegro, who had stunned the Danes in Copenhagen earlier in the campaign."We had the concentration, determination and grit - things we hadn't seen in a Danish team for many years," he said.

    Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere was excluded from the England squad as he plays in the wrong position for the Premier League club, Three Lions' manager Gareth Southgate said ahead of Friday's clash with Germany.Wilshere has won 34 caps for England, including in the 2014 World Cup, but has not featured for Southgate's side since they were eliminated from the Bartolo Colon Jersey 2016 European Championships.

    The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at Bournemouth before sustaining a season-ending injury in April but has returned to the Arsenal starting line-up during their Europa League fixtures this campaign."Jack played as a number 10 all of last season... ," Southgate told reporters. "That is not the way we are playing. When we have played with a 10, we have had Dele (Alli) and (Adam) Lallana.
    "I don't think Jack is a 10. I Bartolo Colon Jersey think he is a deeper player, but he is not playing deeper."But I want to be clear: I really like Jack Wilshere as a player. I think he is a talent and I really respect him as an individual. And I'm hoping that we are in a position in http://www.officialfootballrams.com/Andrew-Whitworth-Jersey March where we can pick him."Wilshere, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has scored twice in eight appearances for Arsenal but is yet to start in the Premier League.
    The playmaker expressed his love for the London club, saying he would like to extend his 10-year stay at the Emirates and fight for his spot in the starting XI."I've been here 10 years, I love this club and feel like I have a special relationship with the fans," Wilshere told Standard Sport. "Of course I want to stay."At the moment I'm concentrating on getting into the Premier League team. I've been playing quite a lot of football and I'm happy with where I am fitness wise but I want to be playing for Arsenal in the league."
    England play Brazil on Tuesday before the league resumes with Arsenal hosting Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby on Nov. 18.Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard says it "would be a dream" to play under French great and current Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane in the future.Hazard has been instrumental to Chelsea's success since joining the club in 2012, winning two Premier League titles, a League Cup and the Europa League, and has scored three goals and provided four assists in 13 appearances this season.
    Media reports have repeatedly linked the Belgian with the Spanish champions and the 26-year-old did not rule out a future move to Real Madrid."Everyone knows the respect I have for Zidane as a player, but also as a manager. He was my idol," Hazard told Belgian TV channel RTL. "I do not know what will happen in the future. However, for sure, to play under Zidane would be a dream."I am enjoying life at Chelsea. I still have a lot of things to achieve with them. I am focused on playing for Chelsea."
    Hazard said that he would also enjoy a reunion with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who is currently at league rivals Manchester United."Of course (I would enjoy working http://www.chiefsshop.us.com/WOMENS-DJ-ALEXANDER-JERSEY.html with Mourinho again). I like facing him also as an opponent. If we were to work together in the future it would be with pleasure," Hazard said.Hazard has been called up for Belgium's friendlies against Mexico and Japan and will reunite with Chelsea, who are fourth in the league, ahead of their trip to West Bromwich Albion on Nov. 18.

    No game this week has as much on the line in terms of the playoff race than this one. Both teams can see their potential playoff prospects swing fairly dramatically depending on the outcome.

    Dallas may hold the sixth seed in the NFC in the "if the season ended today" scenario, but the season doesn't end today, and http://www.officialflamesauthentic.com/Alex_Chiasson_Jersey according to FPI, the Cowboys face the most difficult remaining schedule of any team in the league. Dallas still has two division games against the Eagles (FPI's top-ranked team), including the home encounter in Week 11, and tough games at Oakland and home to Seattle still to come. When factoring in FPI's projections for the rest of the season, Dallas has a 49 percent chance to Bernie Parent Jersey make the playoffs, seventh best in the NFC. A win would get the Cowboys to a more comfortable 66 percent and a loss would drop them to 32 percent, the biggest difference of the week.
    Does the news that the Vikings may activate Teddy Bridgewater and put Sam Bradford on injured reserve really change the Vikings' plans at quarterback if Case Keenum stays healthy?It may seem crazy not to go back to Bridgewater, who was the Vikings' unquestioned starter before an injury sidelined him just prior to the 2016 season, but consider how well Keenum has played.
    Keenum ranks fifth in Total QBR so far in 2017, and his 64.4 is higher than Bridgewater's Total QBR in either 2014 or 2015. It isn't a case of being efficient in a small sample, either, as Keenum has added 14.3 points more than the average quarterback given the same playing time, sixth highest in the league. If you were Mike Zimmer, would you hand the keys to the offense back to a guy who hasn't played a competitive game since the end of the 2015 season, or go with the guy who has been one of the five most efficient QBs in the league this year?
    Washington, on the other hand, will need a better performance from Kirk Cousins. Cousins did lead the game-winning drive last week against Seattle's strong defense, but prior to that drive Cousins' raw QBR for the game was a 12, and Minnesota has allowed a lower QBR to opposing quarterbacks this year than has Seattle.
    There is no team the Patriots have underperformed against more on the road in the FPI era (2008 to present) than the Broncos.
    New England has played six games in Denver during that time (including the playoffs) and has won just twice. If we use the Patriots' FPI pregame chance to win, we would have expected the Patriots to win 3.03 of those games -- their difference between expected wins and actual win (-1.03) is the largest of any Patriots opponent while on the road in that span. Sunday will mark the third time the Patriots enter as FPI favorites, and they are 1-1 in the previous Bernie Parent Jersey two games.
    Denver is clinging to its playoff hopes despite its 3-5 record. Denver has the ninth-best AFC chance to make the playoffs at 13 percent, but a win would lift the Broncos to 23 percent while a loss would drop them to 7 percent. Denver still has FPI's top-rated defense and will need Von Miller to get to Brady. Only Cameron http://www.authenticoaklandathletics.com/Catfish-Hunter-Jersey Wake has as many sacks against Brady (7.5) as Miller does since Miller entered the league in 2011.

    As a player at Nottingham Forest, Martin O'Neill was part of one of the great underdog stories, forming an integral part of the side which won two European Cups under Brian Clough.
    It is an experience he still draws on decades later. It fuelled his success at Leicester - where he won two League Cups as a manager - and his determination to inspire an Ireland team, lacking world-class players, to punch above their weight.
    "There are comparisons with the job I did at Leicester and what I'm doing at Ireland - it does bring out something Seth Joyner Jersey in my personality," O'Neill says.

    "That love of Seth Joyner Jersey the underdog. I had that as a player at Nottingham Forest too, when we won the league and the European Cup. Those were the great days of my playing career, under Brian Clough, and that stays with you as a manager.
    "Clough used to play on that in the media, Seth Joyner Jersey the underdog thing, but he never gave a feeling of inadequacy to the players. Far from it, in fact. The best managers do that."
    Indeed, empowering players - and making them feel valued - lies at the heart of the O'Neill philosophy.
    "Football is about the players," he says. "When we were growing up, the dream http://www.officialpanthersnflauthentic.com/Nike-Curtis-Samuel-Jersey.html was to be a cricketer or a footballer - it was to score a 100 in a Test match, it was to score the winning goal at Wembley or in a European Cup final. I don't think there are many 10-year-olds dreaming of standing on a touchline directing the team.
    "The manager is very, very important, I'm not minimising that. Great managers are worth their weight in gold, but the game belongs to the players. You want to see the players performing, the great managers try and get a reflection of themselves in the players."
    There are those who have argued that O'Neill, at the age of 65, is no longer relevant as a tactician; a http://www.jaguarsofficialnflprostore.com/Nike-Cam-Robinson-Jersey.html dinosaur who cannot keep up with a younger breed of dynamic managers with new styles and formations.
    Such accusations irritate him, given his success. As does the persistent accusation in Ireland, that his team do not have any clear tactical guidance.
    O'Neill does not follow fashions and, unlike some, does not try http://www.packersauthenticofficialstore.com/WOMENS-JACOB-SCHUM-JERSEY.html to blind critics with talk of philosophies and brands. In private, O'Neill often scoffs at those who have tried to suggest they have reinvented football from the dugout.
    "Words like philosophy seem to be used now and accepted," says O'Neill. "I have no problem with that, but everybody has a philosophy. Clough had a philosophy, Jock Stein had a philosophy, they just didn't use it every single day to try and baffle people.
