Subscribe today!Ottawa SenatorsOverall: 95 Title track: 112 Ownership: 114 Coaching: 95 Players: 72 Fan relations: 78 Affordability: 68 Stadium experience: 110 Bang for the buck: 53 Change from last year: -37For every step these Ottawa Senators take forward, they take -- you guessed it -- two more back. Two seasons ago, the Sens blazed through March, going 11-3-2 (as part of a longer 20-3-3 clip to end the year) ... then limped to a first-round exit in the playoffs ... then limped their way through most of 2015-16, too. Their place in our Ultimate Standings? It has followed suit. After a middle-of-the-pack No. 58 overall last year, Ottawa has crash-landed at No. 95 in 2016, its lowest mark since we started these rankings in 2003. O no, Canada.Whats goodFans dont love the Senators title hopes. Or their owners. Or their coaches, or their stadium experience. But they do love those reasonable prices. Ottawa failed to crack the top 50 in any category in 2016, but posted their most respectable scores in affordability and Bang for the Buck. Because even if that on-ice action is sub-par, the $67.82 it costs on average to get a ticket, parking and concessions at the Canadian Tire Centre is the best rate in the NHL -- and 23 percent lower than league average. And that $3.57 a hot dog will run you? Also a hockey low. Who says franks work best in a ballpark?Whats badBargain-basement deals aside, Ottawans dont really enjoy a night out at the Canadian Tire Centre (No. 110 in stadium experience) -- perhaps because they have little to no confidence in ever seeing their team hoist a Stanley Cup there (No. 112 in title track, worst in the NHL). The Senators reached the finals 10 years back, were promptly brushed aside 4-1 by Anaheim, then never made it closer than the semifinals in the decade since. Theyve carouseled through seven coaches in that time, their only real consistency a relentless inconsistency. And while first-year general manager Pierre Dorion optimistically concluded in August that there was no doubt in his mind the Senators are a playoff team, the fans fancy their chances less.Whats newIf the Ottawa fan base was lukewarm on Eugene Nobody is Safe Melnyk before (No. 77 last year), it finds him downright distasteful now, judging from a 37-spot drop in ownership this year. In March, Melnyk let loose his disdain for the Senators performance in the 2015-16 season, casting blame on everyone from ex-head man Dave Cameron (stupidity, he branded one of Camerons in-game decisions) to management, and vowed he was willing to throw out everything but the kitchen sink to get back to playoff contention. Melnyk, conveniently, did not point a finger at himself, but it seems everyone else is pointing at him anyway. Senators fans, when asked to evaluate whether their team has an honest ownership, reported the worst score in the NHL.Next: Montreal Canadiens?| Full rankings Authentic Jamil Demby Jersey . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. Authentic Justin Lawler Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season.As communities and towns right across Canada gear up to celebrate our nations birthday on Monday, European footballs wheelers and dealers --check book and the de rigueur brown paper bag stuffed with cash at the ready -- are salivating at the thought the summer transfer window officially opening for business the very same day. In the run up to Monday clubs have been permitted to consummate deals with the proviso the buying and selling club hail from the same domestic league. Typically Real Madrid has been at the forefront of getting their bids in early. The wannabe 10-time Euro champs displayed their intentions and used their first-mover advantage to maximum effect earlier in the week with news the Madristocrats had locked up one of Spains prime young assets: former Malaga midfielder Francisco Alarcón Suárez. Better known under his one-name moniker, “Isco” gave the perfect account of himself when he was voted the tournaments Golden Boy as Spain retained the UEFA Under-21 Championships in Israel earlier this month. A lifetime Barcelona supporter, Isco is sure to go down well with the locals when he takes his dog for a stroll round the Madrid streets. The ex-Malaga mans dog is called Messi. Not too sure it will be wise to throw him a ball though. Next up in the Los Blancos sightlines are none other than Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez and this summers most in-demand glamour boy, “My Left Foot” himself: Gareth Bale. If Perez is successful the total transfer outlay on these three musketeers - when combined with the 35m euro [$45m CAD] Real reportedly paid Malaga - would most certainly exceed a quarter of a billion dollars. Factor in the existing salaries of this mega Grade-A talent and Madrids total capital investment could exceed the half billion mark. Evidently, Florentino Perez hasnt read any of Michel Platinis memos on UEFAs Financial Fair Play model that comes into full effect this upcoming season. FFP is that utopian one-size-fits-all financial model which restricts and requires clubs across European football to spend what they earn that sounds great in theory. However, in practice FFP will allow the clubs who sign the blockbuster sponsorship deals and receive the greater proportion of broadcast revenues - domestically, continentally and globally - to pull further away from clubs towards the middle and bottom end of the European football food chain. Then factor in, say, the Emirates box office on match day compared to Anfields. The comparison is $5 million vs. $1.5 million and we havent even discussed the icing on the FFP cake; club merchandise. The abundance of Ronaldo, Messi and Rooney [who himself could be on the move this summer] shirts walking round Canadian and U.S. streets alone likely outnumbers the gross domestic merchandise product for the French Ligue 1 and Dutch Eredivisie combined. The rich will indeed get richer and continue to win most if not all the silverware. Just like in the real world itself, over the long run the wealth gap between the ‘haves and the ‘have-nots will widen. It could get to the point when – by time Europe next gets to host a World Cup Finals in 2018 - even Nik Wallenda himself would turn down opportunity to tightrope across such an exhaustible and unbridgeable gap. Just ask yourself why Manchester United CEO David Gill and Roman Abramovich have cuddled up to Platini. Something about protecting future earnings, anyone? Jurgen Klopp, who knows a thing or two (and certainly a lot more than any UEFA FFP Panel) used the platform of the UEFA Champions League Final to full effect when on the eve of thee final, Klopp voiced very legitimate fears that he saw a day the Bundesliga would mimic the Scottish Premier League. Rams Jerseys China. With Bayern playing the role of Celtic, UEFA Financial Fair Play must be the reason why the monopoly board was invented in the first place. Bayern, so optimistically influencing, spent their additional (very lucrative) Champions League broadcast revenue even before they earned it when in late April they captured the $45 million signature of Klopp prodigy Mario Götze. The threat of barring clubs from elite competitions will in time result in such demand for top notch club accountants and lawyers they themselves will likely have to hire player agents as they hold out for 150,000 euros-plus per week in tax free salaries like the players themselves. Surely this was the summer UEFA would have forecasted we would witness a dramatic downturn in spiraling transfer fees. When in reality we may well soon see Torres: Version 2.0. Take it back to late January 2011 and the cart-before-the-horse scenario where Liverpool, to save face pushed back Abramovichs opening salvo for their prime Spanish ace. Anfield requested Torres put in a transfer request as the storied English club demanded 50 million pieces of William and Kate silvers to cut ties with El Nino. Roman duly obliged back then. Now we have reports Liverpool will demand Suarez place a transfer request ahead of any such 50m pound move to Bernabeu. The transfer request is an important factor because placing one denies the player any percentage of his fee garnered at market. These percentages which - in this era of football doping, as Wenger describes it - tend to be negotiated with the player and his management team on an individual basis and can be as lofty as 15 per cent. Not a bad days work for a signature. And we thought there was a growing market for signed baseball cards. Frighteningly, just as the final whistle sounds in Sunday evenings mouth-watering Confederations Cup Final at the mythical Maracana it will also signal a mad dash to the airport as players the world over begin making their way back to their European football outposts. Yes, folks, in the coming two weeks right across the UEFA continent players who have not participated in any spring international tournaments begin reporting to training camp. Fitness levels will be checked as financial wherewithal reaches a new dimension. By the end of August when the window closes lets see how vast the EU aggregate spend is. With the prospect upon us that Bale, Cavani, Suarez, Lewandowski and Rooney could be joining the likes of Tevez, Isco, Fernandinho and Götze before them and running out next season in a different jersey than the one they threw into the crowd at the end of last season puts a whole new dimension on European club football finances. Now add in just for fun comments earlier this week from the Legendinho himself: Johan Cruyff. The Dutch Master suggested in a MARCA interview that with the $70m-plus Neymar now installed at the Camp Nou, the club Cruyff took to its very first European Cup in 1992, should take advantage of the rising market prices and sell the current face of the franchise: Lionel Messi. As he holidays in Milan, what price would the Argentine maverick command? The just-turned 26-year-old who we are yet to see the very best of? Told you it was fun. So many euros will be required by Sheik Mansour it will likely lead to a rise in the value of Europes beleaguered currency unit. Not sure this was in any UEFA FFP forecasts.

TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays had a long players-only meeting before the game, but came up short again when it counted. Ivan Rakitic Dres . After meeting behind closed doors for more than an hour Tuesday, Toronto blew an 8-3 lead through six innings in losing their sixth straight game, 10-9 to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Adrian Gonzalezs three-run home run keyed a four-run eighth as the Dodgers won their fifth in a row and 22nd in 27 games. "It doesnt get any worse than that to be honest with you, considering where were at," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons, whose team has lost 13 of its last 17. "Games like that are going to happen every now and then but its really magnified now. We had a nice little lead, nine outs to go and we were in the drivers seat. "Our bullpen has been very good but they kept coming after us, they have a pretty good lineup. We made a run late, but by then it was too late." Andre Ethier and Jerry Hairston Jr. also homered as the Dodgers (52-47) won a ninth straight road game to match their longest streak since July 2004. Gonzalez, Ethier and Mark Ellis each had three RBIs for Los Angeles. Hairston homered in the sixth and Gonzalez erased an 8-6 deficit with a drive to centre off Darren Oliver (3-2) in the eighth, his 15th. One out later, Ethier went deep for the seventh time. The Blue Jays (45-54) continue to disappoint after opening the season with great expectations. "Its definitely not how we drew it up, but thats why you have to play the game on the field," Oliver said. "We definitely have to turn it around so we can enjoy the last two and a half months." Jose Reyes had a two-run home run and three RBIs for the Blue Jays, while Jose Bautista and Mark DeRosa hit solo shots. Brett Lawrie and Bautista each had two RBIs. "You have to tip your hat when a team comes out swinging like that and can score some runs with some home runs, " Bautista said. "Theres nothing that we can do about it at times. We scored nine runs and thats normally enough and our pitchers are not going to give up home runs but some days are like that." Bautista declined to discuss details of the meeting. "Sometimes teams just have to get together and kind of air some things out," he said. "Teammates have to know what everybody is thinking whats in everybodys head. Today was a good day to do it. "After the (all-star) break we were hoping to come out of the gate strong and we didnt. So it was a good time to do it. It went well, we aired some things out. I like to keep it private. I certainly wont discuss the details of what we talked about." Former Toronto reliever Brandon League (4-3) pitched two-thirds of an inning to pick up the win. Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth for his 12th save despite allowing a run. Down 10-8 in the ninth, the Blue Jays made a push when J.P. Arencibia singled home Adam Lind, but Lawrie ended the game with a fly to the warning track in left. "Were fighters," Bautista said. "We showed it today. We scored a lot of runs and they went ahead and we still tried to battle back. Unfortunately we came up a little short. We have a lot of great capable baseball players in this room. "Were not getting the results right now." Blue Jays starter Todd Redmond held the Dodgers to three runs and seven hits over 5 2-3 innings, while Dodgers counterpart Chris Capuano allowed five runs on seven hits in 4 1-3 innings. "I thought (Redmond) did a great job, he gave us what we needed, " Gibbons said. "Its not an easy lineup to face and he held them in check." The Blue Jays took a 2-0 lead in the third inning on a single by Lawrie, a double by Reyes and a single by Bautista. The Dodgers tied the game 2-2 in the fourth on infield hits to third by Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez, a double by Ethier that scored one run and a single by Ellis that plated another. The Blue Jays regained their two-run edge in the bottom of the inning on DeRosas fifth homer of the season, a double by Rajai Davis, an infield single by Arencibia and a sacrifice fly by Lawrie. Bautista then hit his 23rd homer of the season in the fifth to put the Blue Jays up 5-2 and chase Capuano in favour of Carlos Marmol. Hairston made it 5-3 with his solo homer in the sixth and Brett Cecil came out of the Toronto bullpen to replace Redmond after Tim Federowicz doubled. The Blue Jays added three runs in the sixth against Marmol and looked to be cruising. Lawrie singled home Arencibia and he came around on Reyes fifth homer of the season. "You dont feel great when youre down 8-3 there but you also know youve got three innings." Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "Weve been throwing up some big innings lately." Down by five, the Dodgers didnt quit. They scored three in the seventh to cut the lead to 8-6 on singles by Puig, Gonzalez and walks to Ramirez and Ethier that forced in a run. After Dustin McGowan replaced Cecil, Ellis greeted him with a two-run single before Hairston was hit by a pitch to load the bases again. McGowan struck out Federowicz and then got the force at home on a close play to end the inning and keep Toronto up by two before Gonzalaz gave L.A. the lead. "That ball was crushed," Mattingly said. "For me, Adrians been our guy all year. I know Hanley (Ramirez) has been really hot but Adrian has just been there the whole season for us. He doesnt get the same attention because hes kind of been consistent." Notes: Attendance at Rogers Centre was 32,158. ...

The Cleveland Cavaliers debuted a new lineup on Friday night that might come in handy later in the season. Replica Costa Rica Jerseys .With Channing Frye excused from the team after the death of his mother, coach Tyronn Lue used LeBron James at center in the Cavs 94-91 win at the Toronto Raptors.James has played in the post more and more later in his career, but usually its at power forward. Its unusual to see him at center, but Lue wanted to see what it looked like -- and he did it without practicing.We had to try something different and I wanted to take a look at it, Lue said. We couldve played Bird (Chris Andersen) or James Jones, but its something I wanted to look at.I give the team credit. We hadnt worked on it. It kind of had us in disarray a little bit, but weve just got to figure it out. I thought our guys did a good job of figuring out what we wanted to run and did a pretty good job with it.The Cavs might have plenty more chances to experiment Saturday when they host the Orlando Magic, a team they have beaten in each of the last 14 meetings. Orlando hasnt beaten the Cavs since 2012 -- Dwight Howards last season there. The Cavs beat the Magic by an average of 21 points in sweeping the series. Orlando is 12-30 on the road since the start of the 2014-15 season.The Magic are off to an atrocious start defensively, allowing opponents to shoot 50 percent from the field through the first two games. The Detroit Pistons hammered Orlando 108-82 on Friday night, thanks in part to outscoring the Magic 30-9 in the second quarter.The guys talked at halftime and we tried to band together rather than separate and crack ... but it wasnt much better in the second half, Magic coach Frank Vogel said. Its early; its game two. Well get better.Bismack Biyombo is expected to be a big piece to that improvement. Biyombo made his season debut Friday and is expected to fill the middle of the defense after signing a four-year deal during the summer that could be worth $72 million. Biyombo gave the Cavs fits defensively last season during their Eastern Conference finals victory over Biyombos former team, the Toronto Raptors.Hes a middle linebacker defensively, Vogel told the Orlando Sentinel. Hes a guy thats not just doing his job. Hes making sure everybody is doing their job.Hes a great communicator, forceful with his voice. Hes a vet. Hes been around. Hes seen all the coverages and how to guard certain stuff. Hes going to really, really enhance our defense.The Cavs havent shot the ball as well as expected thus far and they struggled with turnovers in Fridays win, but Richard Jefferson believes this version is better than the team that won the championship last season.Shump and Ky (Iman Shumpert and Kyrie Irving) missed the first 30 games (last) season, Jefferson said. Overall, with the health to start the season, and the additions that we have ... we won 57 games last year with two key guys missing 60 games (combined). Cheap Football Costa Rica Jerseys .

The 15th-ranked Canadian men lost the opening two games of their European tour: 19-15 to No. 17 Georgia and 21-20 to No. ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- The biggest change for newly crowned Formula One champion Nico Rosberg this year was staying calm despite his often turbulent relationship with rival Lewis Hamilton.Rosberg won his first F1 title on Sunday to end his Mercedes teammates bid for a fourth title overall. Hamilton won the race itself but Rosbergs second place was enough for him to finish five points ahead in the standings.The German driver focused on himself the whole season, not allowing the frustrations of his rivalry with Hamilton to unsettle him.For sure its a key ingredient as to why Im here now. Its the approach Ive taken, Rosberg said. Ive really learned to focus hard. It takes a lot of sacrifice to stay so focused for the whole year.When Hamilton sealed last years title with three races to go at the United States GP in Austin, Texas, he made a dismissive gesture toward Rosberg.The three podium finishers each get a cap: with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd written on them. Race winner Hamilton tossed Rosbergs second-place cap toward him with barely a glance in his direction, let alone consoling words.Rosberg reacted by tossing it straight back at Hamilton even quicker than it had arrived.Hamiltons gesture appeared to be one-upmanship, goading right at the precise moment when his teammate was utterly dejected.Austin was a horrible experience for me, Rosberg said.But getting so irritated that day merely exposed his frustration to the watching world, while Hamilton smiled serenely.Rosberg showed far more mental strength this year.Even at pre-season testing in Spain, he seemed different. Less edgy, less verbose, and quietly determined to turn his fortunes around.All season long he has repeated the mantra of taking it one race at a time.The clich? from one of the more eloquent drivers became a force field, helping him to block everything else out and stopping him looking too far ahead or thinking too much about Hamilton.Publicly, at least, he spoke about Hamilton like he would any other driver, rather than the rival haunting his title dreams.There have been tensions this year.They crashed on the final lap in a dramatic end to the Austrian GP in early July, when Hamilton was desperately trying to overtake RRosberg. Costa Rica Jerseys From China. It followed a similar incident on the first lap at the Spanish GP in mid-May -- although both went out so neither gained points.But after what happened in Austria, both were warned by Mercedes that they risked having team orders imposed on them.Mercedes had seen this before in 2014, when their drivers feuded at the Monaco GP and the Belgian GP.Tensions were still apparent heading into the final race of 2014 in Abu Dhabi. Before that years title decider, Hamilton was asked if there was something he could do to ensure a clean race. He said there was not.In a flash, Rosberg snapped at the British driver: Yes, Lewis can do something to keep it clean, which is drive cleanly himself.It was Rosberg once again rising to the bait.But after this years incidents, Rosberg reacted in a low-key manner, noticeably steering away from score-settling.Even in the days before this race, Hamilton was stepping up the mind games, repeating that he thinks he has been the better driver this year and consistently bemoaning his bad luck with engine problems.If Hamiltons intention was to dominate the pre-race news conferences before their latest title decider, then he won hands down.But Rosberg was clearly not interested in engaging in a war of words and, while Hamilton hogged the limelight with his audacious statements, Rosberg sat next to him, cupping his chin on his hand, visibly detached as he looked away into the distance.If Hamiltons intention was to undermine Rosbergs composure, then it failed.Their rivalry goes back to when they were racing karts against each other as teenage friends and shared rooms together at races.The two 31-year-old drivers are contrasting characters.The jet-setting Hamilton has always loved to travel, often using his bright-red Bombardier Challenger private plane.He has a taste for the high life, with high-profile friends in the music and fashion industry such as singer Rihanna, designer Stella McCartney and model Gigi Hadid.In contrast, Rosberg, who has a young daughter with his childhood friend and wife, grows and eats his own vegetables. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Key defender Tom McDonald has signed a two-year contract extension, opting to stay with brother Oscar at AFL club Melbourne. Alex Killorn Jersey .McDonalds future became a subject of much conjecture this season as contract talks stalled.But the Demons announced on Wednesday that Tom and Oscar McDonald had agreed on terms and would be at the club until at least the end of 2018.Its not something you stress about every day, but it does play on your mind a little bit, Tom McDonald told the club website.I really wanted to stay and get a deal done, but youve got to be realistic and aware that things can change.I wasnt talking to any other clubs or assessing any other offers, but I was just looking to stay at Melbourne.Its a really good feeling to have it all done close to the end of the season.

Update: Since the time of publication, Marc Merrill has posted a response to the community backlash.After a recent interview by theScore esports with Team SoloMid owner Andy Reginald Dinh, Riot Games co-founder and League of Legends co-creator Marc Tryndamere Merrill took to Reddit to respond to Dinhs complaints about the competitive scene and the impact of upcoming patch changes on the game.Just in case someone didnt read Tryndameres original comment, here you have both side by side. Rulo Mercury (@RuloMercury) August 22, 2016Although Merrills response was edited, as seen in the tweet, his original response received pointed feedback from other owners within the scene and the League of Legends community, and a lengthy response from Dinh himself. Merrill not only angered the public but also has caused one of the largest Riot Games public relations disasters in recent memory. He has been openly vocal about his opinions in the past, as shown in the SpectateFaker situation in 2015, when he alleged a streamer was e-stalking another players stream.The League of Legends esports fan base has actively opposed those who disagreed with Riots business decisions and propositions, such as veteran esports journalist Richard Lewis, journalist William Turton (who was effectively bullied out) and more. Parts of the fan base have also defended some of Riot Games most mismanaged and opaque decisions, such as the recent ban of Renegades and Team Dragon Knights. But for the first time since SpectateFaker, the tables have turned -- like the Eye of Sauron, the community has shifted its aggressive gaze toward Merrill and Riot.Merrills original response to Dinhs criticism is appalling for many reasons.First, just how out of touch is Merrill with the community that the game has produced? League of Legends most beloved team, Team SoloMid, is at odds with Riot, and though this is one of the first times the rift has become public, that isnt why the tables have turned, as some have suggested. (Recently, multiple teams, including TSM, petitioned Riot to levy punishment at Apex Gaming because Apex was missing visas to compete in the 2016 Summer Promotion Tournament.) This time, the community is at odds with Merrill because of his lack of understanding of the space he oversees and his continued incompetence when addressing the public.Merrills response starts off with, Maybe [Dinh] should spend some of the millions he has made / makes from League of Legends on paying them instead of investing in other esports where he is losing money -- a statement thats not only an arrogant delusion, but a pure fallacy.While League is sometimes profitable, depending on who you are and your investment model, the recent surge of League organizations that have expanded elsewhere is a sign of future-proofing. League will not last forever, and other esports, like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Super Smash Bros., allow teams to promote certain sponsors that are normally regulated by Riot Games.Two examples of this are gambling and daily fantasy websites, such as DraftKings and AlphaDraft. Alcoholic beverage companies like Bud Light recently plunged into the space as well. None of these companies is allowed to be affiliated with League of Legends teams, despite being popular among non-League teams under the umbrella of Team SoloMid and Cloud9.It seems that Riot Games esports department is selling a false idea to Merrill -- that League of Legends is esports. This has been, and continues to be, more false over time. While League of Legends was the focal pooint of an investment boom at the end of 2014, League is no longer the only game investors are interested in, and it was certainly not the first (Im looking at you, StarCraft II in South Korea). Martin St. Louis Jersey. In fact, investors have taken a heavy interest in Counter-Strike and the recent first-person shooter release, Overwatch. Both of these games market to a different, yet overlapping, audience, a la League of Legends. With the growing popularity of both titles -- Overwatch overtook League of Legends in popularity in PC Bangs in South Korea for the first time in years -- its rare to see a major organization not involved in either game. And if these organizations arent, theyre usually pursuing a way to become involved.Second, Merrill speaks about the market value of a League of Legends pro, which he seems to not understand.There is still a long way to go to help get all of our owners into a better state where the balance of power between players & owners is a bit more equitable, he says in his response. Its not our call (nor should it be) to determine market pricing for players, but when owners dont want to shell out for top talent, thats a tricky problem.While Merrill is right that Riot doesnt directly determine that worth, the limited playing options for a talented esports athlete lead to highly competitive salaries. Ironically, Team SoloMid is reportedly among the top-paying orgs in the game. Criticizing Dinh and his organization for not paying their players enough, in turn, is almost laughable.Yet Dinhs criticism was mainly regarding the competitive patch schedule of League of Legends. The game is set to release a patch in the coming days to be used at the World Championship this year. Merrills opinion is that owners and coaches, such as Dinh, are angry because this will hide certain line up / skill deficits they may have on their rosters.Simply put, that is not what the owners, coaches or players are frustrated about. They are frustrated with the timing of the patch, and with not being included in the process of making large, sweeping, in-game decisions that will drastically affect game play and players careers. Riot Games did not notify the community before the changes were announced, and refused to allow the players the chance to push back on the timing.The solution? Transparency.This is only the tip of the iceberg, but Riot Games needs to do a better job of involving the teams and players in major changes. While the risk is potential leaks of changes, that risk is not nearly as terrible as the potential of putting some of these players careers in jeopardy by negatively influencing their play. That could make some players lose their spots on their teams, which would be a direct result of Riots lack of awareness.Additionally, Merrill needs to at least appear better-informed. His comments, as many have said, make him seem utterly disconnected from the game he helped create. This isnt the Riot that helped push esports forward by offering salaries, arenas and a world tournament tour. To get back on track, the esports side of things needs a massive overhaul. Up the player salaries, have an open discussion on benefits of regulation vs. franchising, start getting competitive with freelance caster rates (and look to treat the in-house talent better), increase the prize pool, start bringing in sponsors ... the list goes on, but one thing is for certain: Something has to change. And change starts at the top. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
GREENSBORO, N. Cheap Clippers Jerseys China .C. -- Promoting his initiative for boys and young men of color, President Barack Obama said Tuesday that helping these males stay out of trouble and on the right path is an American challenge that will pay off for the U.S. economy in the long run.Speaking about the My Brothers Keeper program during an ESPN-hosted forum, Obama said the economy could grow about 2 percent faster if the U.S. closes documented achievement, wealth and employment gaps that often consign minorities to lives that are less stable and less financially secure.He acknowledged that 2 percent doesnt seem like a lot but said it would mean trillions of dollars of additional wealth for everybody.Young people today are the workers, taxpayers and business customers of the future, Obama said, adding that everyone will benefit if they have money in their pockets, including old heads like himself who in the future will rely on them for Social Security checks.So if theyre unemployed or underemployed, if theyre in prison, that is bad for all of us, not just for them, Obama said. This is an American challenge.Obama launched My Brothers Keeper in February 2014 to address persistent opportunity gaps facing boys and young men of color. Some 250 communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and 19 tribal nations have their own My Brothers Keeper programs, the White House said.Before leaving Washington, the White House announced that Sprint Corp. will do its part to help close the digital divide by providing free tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices, along with four years of service, to 1 million low-income, high-school students who cant get on the internet at home.Obama also praised the value of the nations historically black colleges and universities during the forum, which was taped at North Carolina A&T State University, an HBCU with a highly regarded engineering program. The event was hosted by The Undefeated, an ESPN website that explores the intersection of race, sports and culture. ESPN broadcast the forum Tuesday night.Obama pushed back against the notion that his administration has been insufficiently supportive of historically black colleges, which are under enormous financial pressure.He called HBCUs a foundation stone for building the black middle class and black wealth, and said he had increased federal funding to them to $4 billion annually. Obama said these schools are facing difficult financial decisions, as are non-HBCUs, because states are cutting funding for higher education.The president urged students worried about the cost of a college education to vote. If you dont vote, then you will not have any say in the decisions that are made in state capitals or in Congress about the kind of support that you receive, he said.

Australian crickets great selection U-turn started to gather pace well before the Hobart Test was over, and well before the chairman Rod Marsh handed in his resignation. Cheap Red Wings Jerseys China .Having witnessed Australias dismemberment for 85 on day one of the the second Test, Marsh summoned the remainder of his panel - Trevor Hohns and Mark Waugh - to speak together at the Bellerive Oval. For much of the third day of the Test, the trio could be seen sitting and talking together in the front row of the chairmans suite.By the definition of their roles, it is unusual to see more than a couple of the selectors together at any one time, for they are usually flung across the country watching matches. So the sight of Marsh, Hohns and Waugh all together - only the coach Darren Lehmann was absent, sitting with the team - was an ominous one indeed for Australias Hobart incumbents.How much of the team for the Adelaide Test actually took shape in the midst of the previous match will be something that remains in the confidence of the panels members. But it is abundantly clear that the selectors had decided they needed to change tack, and do so definitively, a long time before the final wicket fell at Bellerive.Hohns, well into his second stint as a selector after having a decade in the role from 1996 to 2006, made sure to assert that the six changes made for Adelaide were not a reaction to downward pressure on the selectors, but rather a proactive move on their part.Prior to Rod Marshs departure, the panel then had these discussions about where we needed to go with a view to the future, Hohns said. As weve seen we havent won very much, weve lost a lot of Test matches of late, so we considered it was time to start to revamp and look to the future.Those discussions occurred early enough for the captain Steven Smith and the coach Lehmann to assert immediately after the Tests conclusion that there would be widespread changes to the team. They were also weighty enough for the chief executive James Sutherland to be able to state something similar the following day, even if there seemed a contradiction in stating the team needed to close ranks in one breath, then stating those very ranks would be turned over quite dramatically the next.You cant just flick a switch when youre in a rut like this, Sutherland said. You actually need to close ranks work very hard, be very focused on process and work together as a team and I know theyre the things people within the group are thinking about. Now clearly theres going to be changes for the next Test match and it will be a different group of players that gather for the next Test match.I dont know how many changes there will be or anything like that. But those players that are there from this Test match need to be very clear about the challenge and how they bring people, maybe some new people into the team. Theres no short cuts and in the short term weve got to just knuckle down and work very hard.Where all this gets tricky, of course, is in the nature of the U-turn. How could opinions change so quickly and virulently on the likes of Joe Mennie, discarded after two Tests with the squad and one appearance in Hobart? Further questions were raised by the eclipse of Callum Ferguson, flown into Hobart as injury cover, then thrust into the team, then dumped again just as quickly.A major clue to all that was provided by Smith in his emotive post-match press discussion. He was unable to answer in the affirmative to questions about whether he was getting the teams he desired, while at the same time all but begging the selectors to find him some sturdy foot soldiers to ensure next time around he wont be the lone batsman able to stand fast amid a first innings collapse.To that end, the most significant selections among the six inclusions for Adelaide were arguably those of Matthew Wade and Nic Maddinson. Wades recall is at great cost to Peter Nevill, as studious and thoughtful as Wade is brash and outspoken. There is no doubt Nevill is the better gloveman, and little between the pair as first-class batsmen. Wade will puff his chest out as Smith prefers, though what that means in terms of runs or catches is debatable. More significant is this: Wade was twice able to guide the Australian tail to a match-turning total while making a fine hundred himself, in the space of 12 Tests. Nevill has now played 17, not yet passed 70, and only once could he claim to have played a match-shaping innings, ironically enough in Adelaide last year. Stolid occupations in vain search of draws in Pallekele against Sri Lanka and Perth against South Africa have failed to hide the fact that in his time the Australian lower order has become the longest and least effective of tails. Wade must help the bowlers find their former quotient of imp.Maddinsons call-up intrigues still further, for it would seemingly run contrary to the captains desire for batsmen to stick out the tough periods. Spectators to Sheffield Shield, Big Bash League or even Sydney grade matches would all agree Maddinson is one of the foremost talents of his generation, but also among the most profligate with that talent. Away from the batting crease he is equally unpredictable, the sort to be referred to as a strange unit by skeptical team-mates. He has seldom seemed the man to scotch a batting slide.However in this pick can be seen the hand and example of Mark Waugh, and also Smith. Australia want to find another match-winner for their team alongside Smith, David Warner and Mitchell Starc, and Maddinson fits the bill after the batting fashion of Waugh or, in earlier years, Doug Walters. Smith believes he has been able to help coax some of Maddinsons more consistent displays over the past couple of years, and firmly believes he can do so again for Australia, where the reward for this risk can be so much greater.Never was that better illustrated than three years ago, when Maddinson pummelled 181 from 142 balls for Australia A against Gloucestershire at Bristol while the tour vice-captain Smith, the captain Brad Haddin, the tour manager Rod Marsh and assistant coach Darren Lehmann looked on. It was an innings that prompted Scyld Berry to write the words: Australian batting dead? No mate.Marsh and others have kept Maddinson in their pocket since then, never quite trusting themselves to pick a player so given to bouts of obvious boredom and subsequent ruinous stroke choices. But the circumstances in Hobart were desperate enough to have the soon to resign chairman throwing up other options in conversation with Hohns and Waugh, and for Smith to gain a greater say in affairs than previously. A bit like the panel of Andrew Hilditch who bequeathed the likes of Smith, Warner, Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins to their successors, Marshs men hoped to leave a better legacy than the misery of Bellerive. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys .
