ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo enjoyed the view from the bench for the biggest plays in a win for the Dallas Cowboys. Dwayne Harris returned a punt 86 yards for a touchdown and set up another score with a 90-yard kickoff return, helping the Cowboys hand Robert Griffin III his first loss in his home state with a 31-16 victory against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night. Romo had just 170 yards passing a week after he threw a costly interception during a 506-yard performance, setting up the winning field goal for Denver in a wild 51-48 loss to the Broncos. The Cowboys said all week they had Romos back as their quarterback faced another round of criticism over late-game flubs. Harris showed it, as did Kyle Wilber and the rest of a depleted Dallas defensive line that lost DeMarcus Ware to a quad injury in the second quarter. "Dwayne did a great job and almost allowed us to kind of just sit over there as an offensive unit and rack up all his yards as if we did it without doing much work," said Romo, who made Harris long kickoff return pay off with his only touchdown pass of the night a week after throwing five. Harris had 222 total return yards and Wilber forced and recovered a fumble on a sack of Griffin that left the Cowboys needing just 3 yards for a clinching score in the fourth quarter. "Dwayne did a fantastic job," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. "Talk about making difference-making plays in the game." The Cowboys (3-3) gave owner Jerry Jones a win on his 71st birthday and kept the defending NFC East champion Redskins (1-4) from building any momentum after a win and a bye following an 0-3 start. "Its a great way to win a game," Jones said. "Boy well take it." Joseph Randle, playing because running back DeMarco Murray was out with a sprained left knee, got his first career touchdown after Wilbers big play. He scored from the 1 when he stayed on his feet with a defender draped over him and was pushed into the end zone by centre and fellow rookie Travis Frederick for a 31-16 lead. Harris punt return gave Dallas a 14-3 lead in the second quarter, and the big kickoff return came after Kai Forbaths third field goal pulled Washington to 14-9 in the third. "They make my job so much easier when they block," Harris said. "I give them all the credit. We worked so hard in practice and it showed in the game." Romo finished the job after Harris key kickoff return. He stepped out of a potential sack and threw off balance into the corner of the end zone, where Terrance Williams got two feet down just as he made the catch and was pushed out of bounds by E.J. Biggers for a 15-yard score and a 21-9 lead. Griffin, who was brilliant in a Thanksgiving win at the Cowboys as a rookie last year, said he was rejuvenated after a bye following the Redskins first win of the season against Oakland. And he looked it. The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor had 246 yards passing and another 77 rushing as the Redskins outgained Dallas 433 to 213. Alfred Morris, who had a career-high 200 yards rushing when the Redskins beat the Cowboys in a playoffs-or-bust finale last year, was held in check before a 45-yard touchdown run trimmed Dallas lead to 21-16 in the third quarter. Morris finished with 81 yards. Morris touchdown came a play after safety Barry Church was penalized for unnecessary roughness when he hit Griffin as the quarterback scrambled out of bounds. That was the second time in the third quarter that Church was penalized 15 yards for a hit on Griffin along the sideline. Murray ran 4 yards for a touchdown on Dallas opening drive, but left early in the second quarter with a sprained left knee. The Cowboys also lost Ware before halftime. Redskins linebacker Bryan Kehl left with a sprained left knee, and cornerback David Amerson was ruled out after sustaining a concussion. There were flags along the Redskins sideline after Harris punt return with 2:26 left in the first half. But the penalty was for someone not in uniform on the Redskins bench inadvertently bumping into an official during the play. The score stood and the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty was enforced on the kickoff. Another Washington penalty had provided Harris with a second chance at a return. The Redskins were flagged for illegal motion, and Dallas accepted the penalty that forced them to kick again, setting up the fifth-longest punt return in Cowboys history. NOTES: The Cowboys sacked Griffin three times after getting just one sack combined the past two games against Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning. ... Redskins LB Rob Jackson intercepted Romo in the first half. He had the clinching interception in last years finale when Romo had a chance to lead a tying or winning drive late in the game.

He remains hospitalized for observation. The team said the surgery was a proactive measure and Stewart is expected back with the team next season. He also had surgery on Aug. 66 and Aug.dddddddddddd 8, with the latter procedure done to insert a metal rod inside the tibia. It was the first significant injury for the three-time NASCAR champion since his move to the series in 1999. The 42-year-old owner/driver of SHR saw his streak of 521 consecutive starts came to an end. Stewart is accustomed to racing as many as six days a week, not to mention keeping busy with his business ventures as co-owner of the NASCAR team, owner of his sprint car teams and owner of multiple race tracks.

TORONTO -- The UFC will hold five shows in Canada in 2014, including a return to Vancouver and new stops in Halifax and Quebec City. The schedule, announced at a news conference Wednesday in Quebec City, also calls for fights cards in Toronto and Montreal. The five shows are up from three in recent years when Toronto and Montreal were constants on the schedule with another city rotating in. The busy calendar is a nod to the appetite for mixed martial arts north of the border. "On a per-capita basis, no nation in the world consumes MMA like we do," Tom Wright, director of UFC Operations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, said in an interview. "The fact weve been able to go from three events to five events is a reflection of that. "Well have three of the (UFCs) 13 pay-per-views (in 2014)." Quebec City will host a show for the first time in the form of a televised UFC Fight Night for the live finale to "The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia" on April 16 at Le Colisee Pepsi. The UFC returns to Vancouver on June 14 -- for the first time since UFC 131 in June 2011 -- for UFC 174 at the Rogers Arena. The MMA promoter opted to stay away because of what it saw as onerous insurance and other requirements that have since been modified. "Now were in a position where we can return and were very much looking forward to it," said Wright. "Vancouvers been a great city for us, its a great MMA market for us -- all of Western Canada is. Toronto gets its fifth show in the form of UFC 178 on Sept. 27 at the Air Canada Centre. The UFC debuts in Halifax on Oct. 4 with a televised Fight Night card at the Metro Centre. And the Canadian schedule concludes Dec. 6 with UFC 181 at the Bell Centre, marking Montreals seventh show. Wright says it is too early to speculate on marquee matchups at the Canadian shows. But rival TUF Nations coaches Patrick (The Predator) Cote of Montreal and Australian Kyle Noke will face off in Quebec City. A lightweight bout between Sam (Hands of Stone) Stout and K.J. Noons has already been announced for the Quebec City show. The UFC has held 14 pay-per-view shows to date in Canada: six in Montreal, four in Toronto, two in Vancouver and one in each of Calgary and Winnipeg.

Josh Donaldson hit a three-run home run, his first in two weeks, to help the As extend their winning streak to four games. Oakland also owns the best record in the majors. Boston reliever Andrew Miller (2-5) hit Blanks and Alberto Callaspo with back-to-back pitches with one out in the eighth. After Nick Punto struck out looking, Crisp lined a 2-2 pitch to right and Blanks easily scored ahead of the throw from Brock Holt. Sean Doolittle pitched the ninth for his 10th save. The As closer also extended his scoreless streak to 23 1/3 innings, the longest active mark in the AL. Oakland only managed two hits off Boston starter Felix Doubront and had stranded eight runners before Crisp delivered the game-winner. Fernando Abad (2-2) pitched one inning for the win. The As have won the first two of this series after dropping two of three to the Red Sox at Fenway Park last month. Crisp entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh and struck out against reliever Burke Badenhop. Both teams squandered multiple scoring opportunities. The Red Sox left two on in the fourth and failed to score after loading the bases in the fifth. The As had two on in the third, fourth and seventh but stranded them each time. Oakland starter Brad Mills struck out the side in the first before Boston loaded the bases with one out in the second following an error by Oakland second baseman Puntto.dddddddddddd.

Mills, acquired in a trade from Milwaukee earlier in the week, had not pitched in the majors since 2012. He walked four and struck out four before leaving after pitching out of a bases-loaded jam in the fourth. Donaldsons three-run homer off Doubront in the first was his first since June 6. Doubront didnt allow another hit after that but left without a decision. He struck out four and walked four over 4 2-3 innings.

DUBLIN - Robbie Brady scored twice to lead a second-string Ireland side to a 4-1 win over the United States in a friendly on Tuesday.Ireland, which changed all 11 starters from Fridays 1-0 defeat by Scotland in European Championship qualifying, went ahead in the seventh minute when Anthony Pilkington chipped U.S. goalkeeper Bill Hamid. David McGoldrick, making his international debut, provided the through pass as Pilkington made his run.Mix Diskerud equalized in the 39th after Jozy Altidores lofted cross into the penalty area fell to Chris Wondolowski.

The Americans have had a good year. We knew it was going to be a tough game, because theyre no pushovers. So were delighted to get the win, and for a lot of our lads who dont normally get a chance to play to do so well.Ireland is battling to qualify for the 2016 European Championship in France. Fridays defeat meant the Irish slipped to fourth place in Group D behind Poland, Germany and Scotland — although they are level on points with the Germans and Scots.We scored 4 goals tonight and it was nice to regain momentum from Friday night, said Ireland manager Martin ONeill, whose squad faces its next European test against Poland at home in March.Coming off Fridays 2-1 defeat to Colombia in London, the Americans have lost consecutive games for the first time since late 2011, while the four-game winless streak is their longest since Jurgen Klinsmann replaced Bob Bradley as coach in July 2011.In a worrisome trend for the defence, the U.S. has conceded 10 goals from the 80th minute onward in their last nine games.On Tuesday, the U.S. team also narrowly missed several scoring chances. Fabian Johnson hit the right post in the 22nd minute with a long-range shot and Altidores effort from the edge of the penalty area ricocheted off the crossbar in the 43rd.We controlled the first half and we should have scored a second goal before going in at halftime, Klinsmann said. We didnt do it and then we gave away the second goal, and that obviously kind of broke the game.He said the U.S. team needed to introduce young players, even at the cost of victories, to develop the squad ahead of 2018 World Cup qualifying. He highlighted the need to give a second cap for goalkeeper Hamid, who wasnt even listed in the official match program and was a surprise starter ahead of Brad Guzan.Obviously it always looks bad if you concede four goals, Klinsmann said of Hamid. But those four goals were not his fault.Jordan Morris, a 20-year-old forward who is a Stanford sophomore, made his debut in the 76th minute.

There is no argument that the line of Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Thomas Vanek was one of the hottest in the NHL leading into the post-season, and they did combine for three goals and seven points, but it was the depth of all four lines that helped propel Montreal.SEATTLE -- Osvaldo Alonso understood it was an exhibition. It was also a match the Seattle Sounders wanted to win. Alonso beat former U.S. national team goalkeeper Brad Friedel from 30 yards early in the second half as the Sounders tied Tottenham 3-3 in an exhibition Saturday, the first match for new Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino. "Every friendly is different," Alonso said. "This year we tried to win the game. ... We tried to win this game like it was the MLS regular season. Im very happy for the team." Through half the season, Seattles been the class of Major League Soccer. And the Sounders held their own against a Tottenham side making its debut under Ponchettino, who left Southampton in May to replace the fired Tim Sherwood. Sherwood had taken over on Dec. 23 after Andre Villas-Boas was fired. Tottenham began its preseason North America tour facing former striker Clint Dempsey and his new club. Dempsey left Tottenham to sign with the Sounders last August. Tottenham has two more stops on its tour against Toronto and Chicago before returning to Europe to complete its preseason. Spurs open its Premier League season on Aug. 16 at West Ham. "I want to congratulate our players because the conditions to play were very difficult -- 1 p.m. and warm and a different field," Ponchettino said. "And we play a very good team." Alonsos goal off a loose ball zipped past Friedel and hit the underside of the crossbar before bouncing in the net. The goal gave Seattle a 2-1 lead, but Roberto Soldado converted a penalty kick in the 55th after he was fouled in the penalty area. Tristan Bowen put the Sounders ahead 3-2 in the 79th minute when he tapped in a cross from Sean Okoli, but U.S. national team defender DeAndre Yedlin waas called for a handball in the penalty area moments later and Yago Falque converted the penalty kick.dddddddddddd The match, played before 55,349, was easily Seattles most even exhibition against Premier League opposition. Seattle lost 2-0 and 4-2 to Chelsea in 2009 and 2012 and was routed 7-0 by Manchester United in 2011. "When we come on these tours we sometimes dont know what to expect," Friedel said. "One thing was for certain when we knew we were going to expect a good atmosphere and playing against the best team in the MLS right now." This time, the Sounders had the better of the opportunities and could have come away with a victory had they converted chances in the first half. The Sounders outshot Tottenham 12-5 in the first 45 minutes thanks to Dempsey and Obafemi Martins causing problems for Spurs defence. Dempsey missed wide on an open header and later had a ball headed for the net cleared off the line by Tottenhams Danny Rose. "I thought we had opportunities we need to finish more of and could have been leading at halftime," Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said. Lewis Holtby scored on a header in the 11th minute off a pass from Harry Kane. Gonzalo Pinedas chipped penalty kick beat Friedel in the 33rd minute to pull Seattle even after defender Chad Marshall was taken down in the penalty area on a corner kick. Tottenham played without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, midfielders Paulinho, Mousa Dembele and Nacer Chadli, and defender Jan Vertonghen, who have been given a break after the World Cup. Gylfi Sigurdsson was scratched from the starting lineup shortly before kickoff. "Weve been working extremely hard. Preseason has been very demanding under the new boss and I think that showed," Friedel said.

NYON, Switzerland -- In a stellar pairing of clubs who won Europes top title 14 times, Real Madrid will play Bayern Munich in the Champions League semifinals. Atletico Madrid and Chelsea were matched in the other semifinal as UEFA threatened the English club with sanctions if it tried to enforce a pay-to-play clause written in the contract for loaning goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to its Spanish opponent since 2011. On the field, the city of Madrid will host the first two matches on April 22 and 23, as Atletico first hosts Chelsea at the Vicente Calderon Stadium one night before Madrid welcomes defending champion Bayern to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. "We are the teams who are playing the most attractive football right now," former Bayern and Real Madrid great Paul Breitner said. Nine-time champion Madrid and five-time winner Bayern have also been runner-up a further eight times, yet never met in the final. Bayern is looking to become the first team in 24 years to repeat as Europes top club after cruising to the German league title. "We acknowledge that Bayern Munich, since the beginning of the season, the performance has been amazing," Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno said. "But we are Real Madrid and when we compete, we compete to win." Atletico will face the 2012 champions, who the Spanish club routed 4-1 in the UEFA Super Cup two years ago. A potential dispute over Courtois appeared to be resolved by UEFA one hour before Fridays draw. Chelsea has a contract clause entitling payment for letting the Belgium international play for Atletico against the club which signed him two years ago as a long-term successor to veteran Petr Cech. "It follows that any provision in a private contract between clubs which might function in such a way as to influence who a club fields in a match is null, void and unenforceable so far as UEFA is concerned," the European football authority said in a statement. Atletico director Clemente Villaverde noted that UEFA rules were different to those in the English and Spanish leagues, which allow clauses barring loaned players from opposing their original club. "UEFA has the competence in this matter," said Villaverde, stressing that his club had good relations with Chelsea. Madrid-Bayern is a repeat of the semifinals two years ago decided by a penalty shootout at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium after each team won 2-1 at home. Then, Cristiano Ronaldo was among three Madrid players who failed to score from the spot. The semifinal lineup includes three coaches who each have two Champions League titles with other clubs: Bayerns Pep Guardiola won with Barcelona in 2009 and 11; Madrids Carlo Ancelotti with Milan in 2003 and 07; Chelseas Jose Mourinho with FC Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 10. Mourinho could become the first to coach three different clubs to the European title. Guardiola and Ancelotti aim to become the fifth coach to guide two different clubs to the title. The odd man out, Atletico coach Diego Simeone, won a Europa League title with the club in 2012. Ancelotti also played for AC Milan when it was the last back-to-back champion, winning the European Cup in 1989 and 90. The Italian coach is seeking to take Real Madrid to its first final in 12 years. Under Mourinho, it lost in the semifinals for the past three seasons. "Im confident we can do what is needed to win," Ancelotti said. "Guardiola is one of the best coaches in the world and the series against Bayern will be difficult for both teams." The return matches will be played on April 29 in Munich and the following night in London. The final is scheduled for May 24 at the Stadium of Light in Lisbon. L.C. Greenwood Jersey.

He won Grey Cups in 2009 and 2010.

The Alouettes also signed two-year contracts with two Canadians -- linebacker Jonathan Beaulieu-Richard and slotback Chris Dobko.

CHICAGO -- Jose Abreu says he didnt expect this much success, especially in cold weather. Yet he set another rookie record on Sunday. Abreu drove in four runs and set a major league rookie record for RBIs through the end of April and the Chicago White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 9-2 on Sunday. Abreu, who had a two-run home run in the sixth and a two-run single in the seventh, has 31 RBIs to lead the majors. Albert Pujols had the previous rookie RBI mark of 27 in 2001. Abreus homer was his major league-leading 10th and extended his own record for home runs by a rookie through April. "I go to the field to play baseball, help the team," Abreu said through a translator. "I really dont go looking for records, but theyre definitely welcome. Thats not something that I go looking for, but its a nice thing." Another White Sox rookie had a memorable day. In his major league debut, Scott Carroll (1-0) gave up two runs, one earned, in 7 1-3 innings after he was called up from Triple-A Charlotte to fill in for injured ace Chris Sale. Carroll, 29, received a standing ovation when he exited the game, and he planned to celebrate with more than 30 friends and family members. "I couldnt have asked for a better showing," Carroll said. "I know I was capable of it, but its just awesome to finally get the opportunity and showcase my skills here at this level." Rays starter David Price (3-2) allowed eight runs, six earned, in six innings. Trailing 1-0, the White Sox scored five runs in the sixth and four runs in the seventh. The Rays committed four errors in the sixth. Gordon Beckham reached on an error and scored from second when Price threw away the ball after fielding Marcus Semiens bunt single. Adam Eaton scored when right fielder Wil Myers fumbled the ball after Prices throwing error. Abreu then hit a two-run home run for a 4-1 lead. He set the rookie record for homers by the end of April on Friday with his ninth -- a walk-off grand slam against the Rays. "Hes pretty strong," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "Ive been talking about how impressive hes been this series. He is good. Hes gonna get better." Dayan Viciedo doubled and scored on shortstop Yunel Escobars throwing error for a 5-1 lead. "Its very unusual. Its uncharacteristic of us to make those errors, but were human, and I still feel like I have eight Gold Glovers out there whenever Im out there on the mound," Price said. "We have those days, and it stinks." Semien doubled to extend the White Sox lead to 6-1 in the seventh. Abreu hit a two-run single and Ramirez added an RBI single for a 9-1 lead. The Rays went ahead 1-0 in the fifth when David DeJesus singled and scored on right fielder Viciedos error. The Rays scored their second run in the eighth on Evan Longorias single. Before his call up, Carroll was 27-38 with a 3.95 ERA in 138 games during eight minor league seasons. He underwent Tommy John surgery in 2012 and bounced back with a 3-1 record and 1.57 ERA in four Triple-A starts this season. "As soon as I found out I was going against Price, I thought to myself, What an opportunity, " Carroll said. "Theres no better chance to showcase my skills and get to go against one of the best guys, a Cy Young winner. I just happened to be better than him today. Its a fun experience, and Im just so happy to do it." NOTES: Sale (forearm strain) played catch before Sundays game, but when hell return from the 15-day DL is uncertain. He is eligible to come off the DL on Saturday. ... To make room for Carroll on the 25-man roster, the White Sox optioned RHP Erik Johnson to Triple-A on Saturday.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Lee Westwood saw his four-shot lead trimmed to just one on Saturday after a bogey at the final hole of the third round of the Malaysian Open. Westwood shot a 1-under 71 for a three-round total of 14-under 202 but is only one shot ahead of English compatriot Andy Sullivan, who had a 66 as he chases his first tour title. Frenchman Julien Quesne is another three shots back in third place after a 69. Westwood, who turns 41 next week, won the Malaysian Open in 1997 and is looking for a repeat to end a near two-year winless drought. For a third day in a row he birdied the opening hole of the Kuala Lumpur Golf Club course before dropping a shot with a three-putt bogey at the second. He added birdies at the fifth -- also for a third day in succession -- and at the par-3 12th before two-putting the final green for bogey after having to play his approach shot from the slope of a fairway bunker. "It was tricky out there and I didnt play as well as I did the first two days and there was some tough flags out there," Westwood said.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- County commissioners on Tuesday approved $20 million in tourism taxes to be used toward the funding of an $84 million downtown Orlando Major League Soccer stadium, clearing the last hurdle for the city to be the home of the leagues next expansion franchise. MLS president Mark Abbott said in a statement after the vote that the league looks forward to working with the Orlando ownership group to finalize the agreement to bring a franchise to the central Florida city. The commissions vote was 5-2 Tuesday night. It came after a six-hour meeting that included comments from more than 100 members of the community speaking mostly in support. Earlier this month, city officials voted unanimously on the same funding plan to help the minor league USL Pro League Orlando City Soccer Club build the 18,000-seat, soccer-specific stadium. The team will contribute the rest of the funding for construction. Following the vote, dozens of purple-clad Orlando City fans in the standing-room only commission chamber erupted in applause and began chanting "We are going MLS! We are going MLS!" Orlando City has been lobbying to become a MLS expansion team for more than three years, but currently plays in the outdated Florida Citrus Bowl. Now that the city and county have approved, Orlando City Soccer owner Phil Rawlins said that an official agreement with MLS could be completed within weeks. Once thats in place, construction would be next with an opening date of 2015 planned. When Rawlins brought the minor team to Orlando in 2010, he predicted it could move up to the MLS within five years. He said his prognostication was less about wishful thinking and more about belief in Orlando as a market. "I felt very strongly at the time that was achievable," Rawlins said. "I think Orlando is a great marketplace for MLS. Its proven that with the support it has in the minor leagues. I know the city is very anxious for a second major sports team and MLS is excited about expansion in the southeast...So I felt confident we could make that happen in that time frame." Among those joining fans and business owners to speak on behalf of MLS coming to Orlando were Orlando Magic co-founders Pat Williams and Jimmy Hewitt. Williams lauded the foresight city officials had when they first brought the idea of NBA expansion to Orlando 25 years ago. "Once again this community is faced with that vision thing once again," Williams told commissioners. Rawlins said once the final paperwork is complete with the league, they hope to make an announcement in about a month. "I think anytime youre building toward a vision and achieving your dreams its always exciting," Rawlins said.

The top-ranked Williams seeks a record seventh Key Biscayne title, and her second in a row.

Tomic, who won just 13 points, is mounting a comeback from surgery on both hips and was playing for the first time since January. "I did the best as I could," he said. "Hopefully in a little bit of time I can get back to 100 per cent." Williams, who owns a small share of the NFLs Miami Dolphins, wore a dress in the teams orange and turquoise colours -- which may explain her slow start. Or maybe it was because she hadnt played since Feb. 21. Williams had to erase a 5-3 deficit in the first set, and then fell behind 6-3 in the tiebreaker. Shvedova pushed a forehand into the net, then the Kazakh hit a nervous double-fault that allowed Williams to exhale. She won the nnext two points with aces, then closed out the set with a backhand winner, a fist pump and a scream of "Yes!" Her game steadied in the second set, when she had 18 winners and only 10 unforced errors -- bad news perhaps for opponents to come in the tournament Williams considers her hometown event.dddddddddddd She lives an hour north in Palm Beach Gardens. "I love playing here," she told the crowd. The 33-year-old Hewitt also staged a comeback. With the victory, he joined Roger Federer (942 wins) and Rafael Nadal (675) in reaching the 600 match milestone. "Not many people get the opportunity to get close to that, so it means I have been around for an awfully long time," Hewitt said. "Im getting old. A few years ago when I had the last couple of surgeries, I probably would have doubted Id get to this stage. Im grateful Im out there and able to compete with the best guys."

In his latest Sky Sports column, Niall Quinn discusses James McCleans Premier League journey and his importance to Republic of Ireland... James McClean is one of those guys who always seems to be just arriving somewhere.He came to the Premier League relatively late. He was 22 when we signed him at Sunderland from Derry City. We bought a long shot and he gave us fireworks. Bang! Suddenly he had arrived into the reserve team. Bang! Now he was in the first team. Bang! He was all over Twitter like a Kardashian. Bang! He was playing for Republic of Ireland. Highlights from the Republic of Ireland’s Group D World Cup qualifier against Moldova In Moldova of all places he might finally have put his baggage down and announced that he is here to stay. His two goals put Ireland in a very strong position to qualify and if the team gets to Russia in 2018, I believe James will be a leader and a key player.Seeing him score a couple of goals told us a lot about not just his talent, but that potential for leadership. It also gave me a lot of pleasure. Not just because of the kind of person James is, but because a lot of people put a lot of faith in him along the way and more often than not he has repaid them well. James McClean now plays for West Brom under Tony Pulis The leaps of faith started with Bryan Pop Robson, a goalscoring hero of the north east. Pop left his scouting job at Chelsea, wanting to get back up to his family and his roots in Hexham. Steve Bruce and I gave him the job as chief scout.Pop came in on the first day and said, Listen, there is a bargain out there that we were recommended to come and watch when I was at Chelsea. It was a lad called James McClean at Derry City. Given the structure at Chelsea and James age, Chelsea had decided not to pursue the transfer.There were a few other clubs looking at James that summer including Everton. Steve Bruce and I had never heard of James McClean, let alone seen him play, but it was Pop Robsons first day on the job, he was enthusiastic and it didnt seem like the time to knock him back. I agreed to approach Sunderlands owner Ellis Short to get permission to make the signing. Republic of Ireland manager Martin ONeill claims he is happy with the performance of his side as they beat Moldova 3-1 Ellis asked a number of pertinent questions, starting with, How many times have you seen him play, Niall? I answered truthfully. Zero times. What else did I know? Well, from what I knew of the League of Ireland and the list of players on our radar at the time, McClean wasnt near to being on the list but…Between the jigs and the reels Ellis agreed and we spoke to Derry. By the way, Pop also told us to sign a certain guy named Michu on that first day. Swansea fans will not be alone in remembering the 20-goal debut season that followed, but Steve and I chose James.He was playing under the management of Stephen Kenny at Derry and as so many players do under Stephens guidance, he had made quick progress. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. We held negotiations in Castleknock, Dublin when I was back home to see the All Ireland Gaelic football semi-final in 2011. James agent, Eamonn McLoughlin, was always a very likeable guy as agents go, easy to deal with. All through the deal there was one burning issue that Eamonn pushed for. He wanted me to call the FAI and tell them James wanted to switch from Northern Ireland to the Republic. We agreed a fee with further payments if James made the first team and another payment if James played for Ireland. Niall Quinn thinks James McClean will be key for Republic of Ireland if they qualify for the 2018 World Cup I spoke to John Delaney at the FAI. I explained how we at Sunderland felt this lad had a decent chance and asked JD to consider securing him for Giovanni Trapattoni. John showed great faith too by starting the paperwork and he also invited James parents to the next Irish game in Dublin. Meanwhile James had arrived in Sunderland.He was different. Everything was new to him but he wasnt fazed or overawed. He had a great desire to work on his game and to make it as a player. When he came we assumed it would take him a year or two to make the first team but he made his mark almost straight away, scoring in a 4-3 win for the development team against Newcastle United. Steve Bruce took note but he moved on not long after that and Martin ONeill, another Derry man, arrived.Martin first saw James play for the reserve team in the glamorous yet windswept surroundings of Eppleton Colliery Welfare FC in Durham. Our reserves beat Manchester United reserves 6-3. That was in mid-week. That very weekend James made his first-team debut, coming off the bench against Blackburn in Martins first game in charge, and he turned the game around. We came from behind for a win as many leaps of faith were well rewarded.It was as simple as just adding water. Instant folk hero. James McClean made his Sunderland league debut against Blackburn Its a funny thing but for all the controversies that have followed James since then, he seldom gets the credit for remaining true to who he is. The worry with a player who makes such rapid progress in the Premier League is that his head will be turned. The quiet lad you signed will be appearing in tabloids smoking a shisha pipe in some nightclub in Marbella at 4am with a pile of neer do well hangers-on who he didnt know two weeks previously. Not James.When I look at him playing now I still view him in those terms. Will he keep it on the rails?For instance, most young players who make the first team gradually work their way up to having a more respectable car in the players car park. James hadnt been long in the first team when I was gazing out the window of my office one day to see a massive, gleaming Range Rover-type thing pulling in and young James hopping out on the drivers side. Uh-oh?Martin ONeill spotted the vehicle too. You could probably have seen it from the moon and Martin had a quiet word. The car was back in the dealers showroom within a day or so. James McClean scored twice in Republic of Irelands win over Moldova Even in Moldova yesterday when James hit an awful free kick I found myself looking at him and thinking, Ah James, if youd spent less time getting yourself decorated with ink in tattoo parlours and more time practising free kicks that might have gone better for you. But thats just the old man in me tut-tutting for the sake of it.James is one of those characters who wobbles but always rights himself in the end. When Martin left Sunderland, James was gone not too long afterwards.He wasnt Paolo Di Canios cup of tea and maybe, vice-versa, Paolo wasnt too inspiring for James. Wigan came looking and he had no problem going there to continue working on his career and to get himself back into the Premier League. It was a sensible move and it worked out fine for him.James is 27 now. If you look at him objectively in a world where so many people are faking it, he is a young man whod rather wear his heart on his sleeve. He makes mistakes. After the game in Moldova for instance he had a crack at the Irish media.I would advise him just to respond to people either through what he does on the field or by talking to them one-on-one, but I understand his frustrations and I think hell learn.That has been his story so far, always learning, always arriving somewhere new.

In an interview with La Presse this week, the five-time Stanley Cup champion and three-time NHL scoring leader specifically took aim at wingers Thomas Vanek and Max Pacioretty, saying they cant show up in a 7-4 win over the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final and come up empty in Game 6.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca! Hey Kerry! Im wondering if you could give us some insight as to why Nazem Kadri got away with only a two for running Niklas Backstrom in Wednesdays game between the Wild and Leafs. Every replay showed an elbow to the head of Backstrom, clear as day. Is the fact that a new Ref was in the game? It seems to me that the weak call was at least partly responsible for the chippy atmosphere afterwards. Any insight would be great! Mike in St Paul, MN --- Hi Kerry, During the Toronto-Minnesota game, Nazem Kadri was given five and a game for a hit to the head. While Kadri got the game misconduct, Phil Kessel served the five-minute major penalty. How do they determine what player serves the five-minute major? Do the coaches pick a player to serve the penalty, and if so does that player have to be on the ice at the time the penalty was called? Kyle Moore Mike and Kyle: Nazem Kadri made two very irresponsible decisions with separate hits to the head of Wild goalkeeper Niklas Backstrom at 7:07 of the first period and then to Mikael Granlund at 8:41 of the third. Both of these illegal hits to the head were worthy of a five-minute match penalty! The match penalty, plus any additional penalties, shall be served by any player (excluding a goalkeeper) to be designated by the Coach through the Captain. The player designated, in this case Phil Kessel, must take his place in the penalty box immediately. Kadri got a two minute free-pass on the Backstrom hit by a rookie referee. Things happen much more quickly in the NHL than in the minor leagues. I am confident the young referee will learn from the experience he gained in his very first NHL game. We shall also see if Nazem Kadri is taught a lesson from both of these experiences? The responsibility is place squarely upon every player to avoid contact with a goalkeeper wherever possible. When contact is unavoidable through a collision the player must do everything within his power to minimize the force generated. Beyond zero attempt by Nazem Kadri to avoid contact with Niklas Backstrom he generated what appears to have been excessive force with his elbow/forearm directly to the facemask of Backstrom causing the goalie to crash the back of his head onto the ice. Following the two minute power-play the Wild enjoyed, Backstrom was forced to leave the gamee.dddddddddddd There is a provision for the referee to assess a major penalty under rule 69 for goalkeeper interference as well as major and game misconduct for charging and elbowing. However, given the fact that Nazem Kadri made a decision to accelerate his elbow/forearm with force directly to the face/head (main point of contact) of Niklas Backstrom elevates the call to a match penalty under rule 48 in my judgment. I see this beyond just a player running out real estate and finding himself in an unavoidable collision with a goalkeeper. Nazem Kadri had other options and a much better decision to make; the very least of which was to plant and finish with an extended forceful elbow/forearm to the head of Niklas Backstrom. There is certainly some precedent set in the area of player contact with goalkeepers both inside and outside of the crease. Classic examples of excessive illegal contact with a goalkeeper were demonstrated when Milan Lucic ran over/body checked Ryan Miller which resulted in a concussion to the Buffalo goalkeeper; then Jordan Tootoo crashed into Miller in the blue paint in the goalies very first game back after recovering from Lucic induced "concussion like symptoms"; in a play-off game Andrew Shaw of the Blackhawks caught Mike Smith with a shoulder cap to the facemask as the goalie played the puck behind the goal. The bar of justice was raised after Milan Lucic escaped with only a minor penalty for charging and no suspension. You may recall my reaction the following day in CMon Ref where I stated that a major penalty and game misconduct plus a three-game suspension was warranted whenever a goalkeeper was run over in that fashion. Both Tootoo and Shaw were assessed a 5 minute major, game misconduct and three game suspensions. The head contact Kadri delivered on Mikael Granlund was totally unnecessary, senseless, irresponsible, wreckless, and dangerous for starters. I could apply a host of other adjectives given the one goal lead the Leafs were protecting in addition to the separation between the two players and as Nazem Kadri approached to make what should have been a legal body check through Granlunds center mass. I must repeat; whenever a player elevates his posture prior to and through a check the head of his opponent is highly susceptible to becoming the main point of contact. The results of Nazem Kadris hearing scheduled this afternoon for hitting the head of Niklas Backstrom are pending.

TORONTO – The Blue Jays wrapped up a nine-game homestand with a 7-4 win over Milwaukee on Wednesday afternoon and afterward, boarded a plane for the long flight to Californias Bay Area. It will be in Oakland, on Thursday night, where the club begins a 10-game, pre-All-Star Break road trip which will be a grind, both in terms of miles logged and quality of opponents. After four with the Athletics, the Jays travel down the pacific coast for three with the Angels and then across the southern part of the continent, concluding with three against the Rays in St. Petersburg. Then comes the Midsummer Classic in Minneapolis, where general manager Alex Anthopoulos expects trade discussions will begin to heat up. “We still have a month. A lot can change,” said Anthopoulos. “We started out June 5-0 and obviously we did play well down the stretch. I think you reassess at the All-Star Break and this trip will be part of it. As long as youre in the hunt is probably an important way to look at it. Knock on wood; unless we go on a long streak where we dont win some games and our competition goes on a streak, as long as youre still within reach, then its going to be a battle.” The Blue Jays approach the break in a unique position, legitimate contenders for a playoff spot for the first time in a generation. The lineup is veteran laden, built to win now. Jose Bautista is 33 years old, turning 34 in October. Edwin Encarnacion 31 and so is Adam Lind. Yet, theres understandable hesitancy to part with pieces viewed as part of the future core, including star pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez, whos now toiling at Triple-A Buffalo. Anthopoulos wades into unfamiliar territory but he approaches this deadline no different than those previous, willing to make any trade to improve his ballclub. There are no untouchables. He wont divulge priority areas so as to not create a competitive disadvantage in trade talks. The bullpen and an additional infielder, be it a second or a third baseman (Brett Lawrie can play the other spot), should be points of emphasis. He would be willing to acquire a third baseman. “Lets say theres an all-star calibre player, a great player, there, I think wed be open to doing that,” said Anthopoulos. “That makes the team better. But I dont want to make that a story. Thats not the plan. Were not close to doing that. Were not actively pursuing that. Bretts our third baseman. Hes got the positional flexibility to play all over the place.” The starting rotation has been a pleasant surprise this season. Mark Buehrles 10 wins and 2.50 ERA have led the way. J.A. Happ, with seven more effective innings on Wednesday, has solidified himself after missing the start of the year injured and returning out of the bullpen. Drew Hutchison has run hot and cold but is a promising young pitcher. Marcus Stroman has fit in well and R.A. Dickey is logging innings even though the results have been mixed. The organization believes Sanchez, 23, has turned a corner with the Bisons after struggling for parts of this season with his command. Hes changed his arm slot slightly, staying better on top of the ball as a result. Anthopoulos didnt deny Sanchez could contribute to the Blue Jays down the stretch. “To me, if he can do it again, Im convinced that they got him right on track and hell be ready if we have a need,” said Anthopoulos. HOFFMAN AND PENTECOST SIGN The Blue Jays locked in their two first-round picks from last months amateur draft. General manager Alex Anthopoulos confirmed that Jeff Hoffman (ninth overall), a 21-year-old right-handed pitcher out of East Carolina University and Max Pentecost (11th overall), a 21-year-old catcher who attended Kennesaw State University, signed for their bonus slot. Hoffman cashes in slightly more than $3-million; Pentecost comes in just shy of $2.9-million. Hoffman underwent Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery in May. Its club policy that no pitcher appear in a competitive game until at least one year after the procedure was completed. Hoffman is in Florida, in the early stages of his rehabilitation. Pentecost is in Dunedin, getting back into baseball shape after his college season ended about a month ago. Pentecost is waiting for his passport and when it arrives, hell report to the Blue Jays short season affiliate in Vancouver. Shannon Sharpe Jersey.com) - Guess whos back, back again?

Nadal could face Djokovic on Sunday, as the Serb played Richard Gasquet of France in the other semifinal later Saturday. Nadal, who improved to 27-0 on hard courts this season, will return to the top ranking for the first time since July 2011. Djokovic has been No. 1 for 101 weeks. "The personal satisfaction is not because I am No. 1 today, its because (of) all the work (I put in) to be where I am today," Nadal said. "I dont feel (like) a better player now than five hours ago, and I wont go to bed tonight feeling that I am the best player in the world--thats something Ive never thought."

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- For the second consecutive night, the Memphis Grizzlies slowed down Houston and walked away with a win. Mike Conley scored 17 points, Zach Randolph had 15 points and 17 rebounds, and the Grizzlies nearly held the Rockets to their lowest output of the season in a 99-81 victory Saturday. "We tried to slow them down," Randolph said. "They like to get up and down the court. They like to run and gun. We just tried to get back and play and get stops." The formula was similar to Friday, when the Grizzlies won 88-87 in Houston, but this time Memphis took control early. The Grizzlies held the Rockets to 37 per cent shooting and built the lead to as many as 27 points before both teams sent in reserves to finish the game. Courtney Lee also had 15 points and Kosta Koufos scored 14, hitting seven of his eight shots from the field. James Johnson added 12 points for Memphis and Nick Calathes had a season-high 11. James Harden led the Rockets with 16 points, and Chandler Parsons scored 11. Dwight Howard had 10 points and 12 rebounds, but Houstons three-game road winning streak was snapped. "The last two games weve been terrible offensively," Parsons said. "Their pace works for them. They make you play a half-court offence. They are physical. They grab. They reach. They hold. When you do that so much, they are not going to call every single foul." Memphis bench outscored the Rockets reserves 44-27. The Grizzlies also had a 56-32 advantage in the paint and a 52-38 edge on the boards. The Grizzlies, as they did Friday, controlled the pace of the game, holding Houston to its second-lowest scoring output this season. Houstons season low was 80 points on Jan. 10 at Atlanta. Rockets coach Kevin McHale said before the game that Houston needed a score in the 100s to overcome Memphis deliberate, grind-it-out pace. That game plan went awry when the Rockets, who entered averaging 105.5 points, managed only 14 in the first quarter. "They beat us. Bottom line," McHale said. "They beat us (Friday) night, and they beat us up again (Saturday). They got offensive rebounds. They moved the ball. They caught us being stagnant, and they were better than us by far." Memphis extended its 11-point halftime lead by outscoring the Rockets 25-19 in the third quarter. Lee had nine points in the period and Harden scored 10 for the Rockets, limited to five field goals out of 21 shots. Three of those baskets were by Harden. From there, Memphis stretched the lead to 27 midway through the fourth, and McHale began sending in his backups. Parsons, who connected on 10 shots from 3-point range Friday, finished 1 of 6 from long range, part of the Rockets going 9 of 32 from 3-point territory. Memphis has won 12 of its last 17 and is 5-1 since Marc Gasol returned from a knee injury. Several Grizzlies said the team appears on the verge of regaining the identity it had during recent playoff runs. "Were ready to win and we prepare like we want to win," Johnson said. "We travel like we want to win, and everybody is holding each other accountable. When you put those things together, we beat teams bad." NOTES: Since moving to Memphis, the only other time the Grizzlies played a home-and-home set on back-to-back nights was in 2006 against the Dallas Mavericks. ... Randolph played his 300th game for the Grizzlies and posted his 189th double-double, tying Pau Gasols total with the team. ... The Rockets were held under 90 points for the sixth time this season.

MADRID, Spain -- Atletico Madrid is making a desperate bid to have Diego Costa available for Saturdays Champions League final by sending him for treatment using horse placenta. The Atletico striker is doubtful for Saturdays match against Real Madrid in Lisbon due to a nagging right thigh injury, but Atletico is not giving up.

The CFL club is making the move after holding its camp and regular-season practices at the University of Toronto campus in Mississauga, Ont.Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - OUTLOOK: There are 13 teams in the Southland Conference entering the 2014-15 campaign, but a small chunk of those programs are ineligible for the upcoming postseason, which really limits the playoff outlook. It wont matter for Stephen F. Austin, which finished last season a perfect 18-0 in conference play en route to the NCAA Tournament, where the Lumberjacks upset VCU in the second round to advance through to face UCLA. SFA is absolutely eligible for the postseason, and fully expects to get back to the tournament, but will have a tough time doing so against the teams that are eligible. And the teams that arent this season wont roll over against some of the better squads in the Southland. In fact, without a postseason bid on the line, some might say it gives teams a little extra motivation to play with a no-holds-barred attitude. Well certainly find out this season as teams like Abilene Christian, Incarnate Word and Houston Baptist continue their elevation from the subdivision ranks of the college basketball realm. Stephen F. Austin is the favorite to win the conference, although repeating is never an easy thing to do. Although the Lumberjacks are missing their leading scorer from a year ago, theyll do just fine with a returning core of strong players, led by forward and Southland Player of the Year Jacob Parker. But theyll get a serious push from Northwestern State and reigning player of the year candidate Jalan West. Both Parker and West are on the preseason All- Southland First-Team, which is no surprise. The Demons came close to taking down the Lumberjacks last season, but fell just short. Sam Houston State finished with a better conference record than Northwestern State at 13-5 in the Southland, and theyll figure to be one of the top teams in the league again this year with a very healthy number of scorers returning for another go- around. And dont count out Incarnate Word, even though the Cardinals are ineligible for the postseason. UIW is an up-and-coming team in the conference, and is returning strong scorer Denzel Livingston. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi finished with the leagues second-best conference record, ending the season at 14-4 in Southland play. The Islanders are expected to be a contender once again, but might not finish as well as they did last season despite the strong contingent of players returning for another season. Its a team that is on the rise, but maybe not quite there yet. New Orleans is a team that fixed its APR deficiencies last season, meaning the Privateers will be eligible for the postseason in 2014. But with a youthful roster in this upcoming campaign, it might be more realistic to think that New Orleans will just be a growing annoyance to the top teams in the conference rather than a real contender. McNeese State and Nicholls State both had middle- of-the-road seasons in 2013, and figure to be right about there once again. McNeese gets a solid core of players back, including Kevin Hardy (a preseason All-Southland Second-Team member), but will he be able to help out a Cowboys team that was a dismal shooting squad last year? Southeastern Louisiana, which finished last season at 7-11 in conference play, figures to be in a rebuilding mode after signing a new coach in the offseason. Abilene Christian should be a much-improved team after finishing with just two conference wins last year, and the Wildcats have a pair of legitimate scorers this season. Lamar was near the bottom last season, but veteran coach Tic Price should use some of his more experienced scorers effectively this season. Central Arkansas and Houston Baptist are both ineligible for the postseason because of APR issues, although neither program figures to be much of a contender anyway. CONFERENCE CHAMPION: Stephen F. Austin PREDICTED ORDER OF FINISH: 1. Stephen F. Austin, 2. Northwestern State, 3. Sam Houston State, 4. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, 5. Incarnate Word, 6. McNeese State, 7. New Orleans, 8. Nicholls State, 9. Southeastern Louisiana, 10. Lamar, 11. Abilene Christian, 12. Central Arkansas, 13. Houston Baptist TEAM BY TEAM ANALYSIS: STEPHEN F. AUSTIN: Desmond Haymon isnt back for another year. Big Deal. The Lumberjacks (32-2, 18-0 Southland) dominated the Southland Conference a year ago, and finished up the conference standings four games ahead of the second-place team with a perfect 18-0 league record. SFA went on to the NCAA Tournament and took down VCU before bowing out to fourth-seeded UCLA. This year may not be an undefeated one in league play for Stephen F. Austin, but the Lumberjacks get a ton of power back from last years squad, including Southland Player of the Year Jacob Parker (14.2 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 19 blocked shots, 48 steals). The team also returns talented juniors Thomas Walkup (13.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and Trey Pinkney (3.0 ppg, 121 assists), and second-year coach Brad Underwood (who signed an eight-year deal following last seasons run) will get to see what Samford transfer Clide Geffrard can do. Though the program lost three seniors who combined for 35.8 ppg, the Lumberjacks will be just fine with Parker and Walkup still around. NORTHWESTERN STATE: The Demons (17-14, 12-6) had an up-and-down season a year ago overall, but finished with a respectable record in conference play at 12-6. This year should be an improved one for Northwestern State, which returns Jalan West, who could have easily won the leagues player of the year award and not many would have objected. West led the Demons, averaging 19.4 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 6.4 apg and had a team-best 70 made 3-pointers. As a junior this season, West will be one of the more seasoned leaders on the Northwestern State roster. The Demons finished second in the entire Division I last season with 86.7 ppg, behind VMIs outlandish scoring total. West is helped along by another player that should explode as a sophomore - last seasons Southland Conference Freshman of the Year Zeek Woodley. The then-freshman finished his campaign with 13.9 ppg, 4.6 rpg and 25 blocked shots. Perhaps one of the biggest advantages the Demons have over Stephen F. Austin is the presence of a true big man underneath. Center Marvin Frazier (5.3 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 56 blocked shots) will be a crucial factor for the team. SAM HOUSTON STATE: The Bearkats (24-11, 13-5) played well in the Southland Conference last season, finishing with a 13-5 mark in league play - third behind Stephen F. Austin and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Sam Houston State could finish higher than that this season thanks to a strong core of returning players, including seven scorers that averaged over half of the teams 75.6 ppg last year. Last seasons Southland Conference Newcomer of the Year Jabari Peters (12.6 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 147 assists) is back for his senior season, along with talented senior guard Kaheem Ransom (11.6 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 127 assists, 51 steals). Both players were the only two to average double-digit point totals, but the Bearkats prided themselves on defense and limiting opponents scoring (69.5 ppg allowed). Returning starters Paul Baxter (9.1 ppg) and 6-foot-11 Michael Holyfield (6.5 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 61 blocked shots) will reprise their roles with a strong lineup. Coach Jason Hooten led SHSU to its seventh 20-win season a year ago, and with the lineup he has now plus the addition of five freshman and junior college transfer Sean Goodwin, the Bearkats are in good shape for the upcoming year. TEXAS A&M-CORPUS CHRISTI: The Islanders (18-16, 14-4) clearly had a rough time with non-conference opponents in the 2013 season, but the team appears poised to take the next step for the upcoming campaign. Having point guard and leading scorer John Jordan (14.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 5.4 apg) return for another season helps the Islanders in terms of the veteran playmaker factor. Hell be the go-to guy on the floor, but he can dish the ball to any number of options. Rashawn Thomas (10.7 ppg, 5.2 rpg) and Hameed Ali (8.0 ppg, 2.4 apg, 1.1 spg) are both going to be staples in the Islanders offense, along with junior guard Brandon Pye, who drilled 50 percent of his 3-point attempts last season. The loss of senior Joy Williamson and freshman Jeff Beverly hurts the team a bit, but coach Willis Wilson is ready for another round with a strong set of players for this season. Underneath the basket, junior forward Viktor Juricek (6-foot-11, provides the Islanders with a big man presence. Although Stephen F. Austin is the team to beat this season, look for Corpus Christi to take some serious strides toward the top of the league standings. INCARNATE WORD: Sure, the Cardinals (21-6, 9-5) are ineligible for the postseason as they continue the transition process of moving up from the Division II level. But that doesnt mean this will be a pushover program by any means. In fact, Incarnate Word has the best shot of any ineligible team in this conference to knock off the top teams in head-to-head matchups. Led by standout guard Denzel Livingston (20.3 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 3.8 apg, 68 steals, 38 blocked shots), UIW is a team on the rise. Livingston is a 6-foot-4 points guard that combines the rare aability to shoot well outside with the explosiveness and determination to get the ball underneath the basket.dddddddddddd That can be a matchup nightmare for many players in the Southland Conference. Add in guard Sam Burmeister (11.0 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 40.9 percent shooting from 3-point range) and 6-foot-5 shooting guard Kyle Hittle (16.3 ppg, 5.7 rpg) and the guard trio for the Cardinals might just be the most dangerous in the conference. There are only two seniors on this UIW team (one being Livingston), which means the future is very bright for this young team. MCNEESE STATE: McNeese State (11-20, 9-9) was the definition of a mediocre team last season, but the offense was, by all accounts, below average. The Cowboys only managed 68.1 ppg a season ago, led by then-senior Ledrick Eackles. It was the reason McNeese State finished with a pretty dismal overall record. But the Cowboys turned on the jets in the offseason and developed what could possibly be one of the more explosive offenses in the Southland Conference, led by senior guard Kevin Hardy (11.0 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 4.3 apg). Hardy will be the key to McNeese States success this season, but he has plenty of help beneath him in that offense. Forwards Desharick Guidry (10.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg) and Craig McFerrin (9.2 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 30 blocked shots) will play huge roles both on the offensive and defensive sides of the floor, and Keelan Garrett (6.1 ppg) should see an increased role a guard opposite Hardy. Last years McNeese State team ranked dead last in the Southland Conference in field goal accuracy and 3-point accuracy, so that needs to improve with this years squad. NEW ORLEANS: New Orleans (11-15, 8-10) overcame last seasons APR issues and is now eligible for the postseason in 2014. The problem is, do the Privateers even have a shot to get there? The team took a serious hit in the offseason, where its four top scorers all departed, leaving just Kevin Hill (7.9 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 25 blocked shots) and Christavious Gill (7.8 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 1.3 apg) as the go- to offensive playmakers. But there is hope on the horizon for Mark Slessingers squad, which landed six freshman recruits in the offseason, and three of the teams players are sophomores. Then-freshman Tevin Broyles started in 20 of the teams 25 games a year ago, so his role will increase with the Privateers as they enter the upcoming season. New Orleans will have to navigate a tough non-conference portion of its schedule, as the Privateers are taking on TCU, Texas A&M, San Diego and Indiana this year. NICHOLLS STATE: The Colonels (14-15, 10-8) will be in search of some offense for the upcoming season after the team graduated its top two scorers from a year ago in Dantrell Thomas (15.9 ppg) and Jeremy Smith (13.9 ppg). It was an average season for Nicholls State last year, as the Colonels finished with a 10-8 record in league play. They may struggle to reach to double-digit win plateau in 2014 without Thomas and Smith. Instead, Nicholls State will rely on T.J. Carpenter (9.3 ppg, 3.5 rpg) and Shane Rillieux (6.0 ppg, 70 assists), who started every game in which he played. The Colonels also added transfer Chad Simpson from Australia, who played at John Tonkin College. He has plenty of potential to develop into a top scorer after averaging 23.7 ppg for John Tonkin last season, and the Colonels are hoping the 6-foot-7 swingman buds into that same type of player. A class of three freshman guards bolstered the Nicholls State backcourt in the offseason, and head coach J.P. Piper is hoping they can bring some scoring into the lineup. SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA: It looks like it will be a rebuilding year for new coach Jay Ladners Lions (12-18, 7-11), who couldnt seem to grasp a .500 record last season in conference play. Ladner comes into his first season with high hopes of running a fast-paced, offensive-driven squad that can compete immediately. Well, the fact is the players just might not be there for Ladner, who loses second-leading scorer Antonnio Benton (11.7 ppg) to graduation. But last years leading scorer JaMichael Hawkins (12.3 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 21 steals) is back for his senior season, and is joined by a core cast of Joshua Filmore (6.9 ppg, 2.9 apg) and forward Onochie Ochie (8.4 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 34 blocked shots). Unfortunately for Ladner, of those three pieces to which he can build a team around, only one if an underclassman. Filmore, a sophomore, will be around for longer than just a year, which means come next offseason he may have to start again. But six freshman recruits on the roster this season will help him going forward, so the Lions have some hope and direction for the future. Unfortunately for Ladner and company, this just wont be the year. LAMAR: It a tough season for the Cardinals (4-26, 3-15), as Lamar finished with the third-worst conference record and the worst overall record in the Southland. It was, for lack of a better word, a nightmare. But coach Tic Price may have some reason for optimism headed into the new year, as 6-foot-5 senior Donovan Ross (10.9 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 20 blocked shots) will lead his Cardinals offensively. The downside of the upcoming season for Lamar is the fact the Cardinals have to live without leading scorer Nimrod Hilliard (14.1 ppg, 4.9 apg) and second-leading scorer Amos Wilson (11.4 ppg, 5.4 rpg). But Ross will fill the shoes of those players well. Hes a combo guard and forward that can handle the ball well and shoot well, but can get his hands dirty underneath the basket and scrap for a rebound. Sophomore guard Preston Mattingly (2.3 ppg), who is the son of Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, will be a prominent member of the Lamar offense this season after seeing action in just 19 games a year ago. Also, Vincennes (Indiana) College transfer Tyran de Lattibeaudiere, a senior, has to make his last year of eligibility count. He figures to be an impact player on offense. ABILENE CHRISTIAN: Abilene Christian (11-20, 2-12) is one of the three remaining teams that is ineligible for the postseason. The Wildcats are in the process of making the transition to Division I basketball final, so that means theyll have another year of sitting on the sidelines when the playoffs start. But lets not kid ourselves, this team wasnt (and isnt) going to be a contender anyway. The Wildcats were dismal in 2013, finishing up the season with a 2-12 conference mark - the second-worst record behind Houston Baptist. It doesnt look like it will be a whole lot better in 2014, even though ACU returns most of its top performers from a year ago. The lineup certainly didnt help the Wildcats then. Parker Wentz (13.9 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 86 assists) led Abilene Christian in scoring, followed by LaDamien Williams (12.3 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and Harrison Hawkins (12.3 ppg, 51 assists). All three are back for another go-around this season, but it should still be a rebuilding year for coach Joe Goldings team. Forward Austin Cooke (6-foot-7) figures to see an increased role as well. CENTRAL ARKANSAS: Turnover is the central theme at Central Arkansas (8-21, 5-13) as well. When new coach Russ Pennell was hired in the offseason, the first thing he did was rebuild his team from the ground up. The only player that survived his transition phase was 6-foot-7 forward Ethan Lee, who averaged just 4.3 ppg, 2.6 rpg and had 10 blocks a season ago. Pennell clearly wanted to build a powerhouse with a lot of big bodies out on the floor, so he added six players to the roster who are at least 6-foot-7. Last year, LaQuentin Miles was one of the leagues best players, and as the Bears leading scorer he averaged a whopping 23.2 ppg, adding 7.5 rpg and 58 assists to his resume. The loss of Miles and DeShone McClure (13.0 ppg, 64 assists) will hurt the Bears as they head into this season not knowing which players will be the best on-the-floor scorers. It doesnt matter much anyway, considering Central Arkansas is ineligible for the postseason after posting low APR scores. HOUSTON BAPTIST: Houston Baptist (6-25, 2-16) finished at the very bottom of the Southland Conference a year ago with a dismal two-win campaign in league play. Coach Ron Cottrell will be looking to change all of that, but his team is, like several others in the conference, ineligible for the postseason. The Huskies, similar to Central Arkansas, have APR issues which led to their offseason disqualification. It wont be a pretty transition for Cottrells squad, which loses its top two scorers from a year ago. But the good news for the Huskies is that four starters and 10 lettermen return. Tyler Russell (8.3 ppg, 2.5 rpg) is the teams returning leading scorer after starting in just 13 games last season. Caleb Crayton (7.1 ppg), Ricmonds Vilde (6.5 ppg) and Marcel Smith (6.2 ppg) are all back, along with Colter Lasher (5.7 ppg), who figures to have an increased role this season. The guard presence on HBU is strong, but that is not the case up front. The 6-foot-11 Vilde will try to be a force down low. Four freshman recruits show Cottrell is building for the future, which is going to be necessary in another rebuilding effort for the Huskies.

Coming off one of the best starts of his young career, Marcus Stroman will try to pitch the Toronto Blue Jays to a series victory over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Wednesdays finale of a three-game set. A 23-year-old rookie, Stroman is 4-2 with a 3.44 earned run average in 12 games this season, the past seven of those being starts. He logged the first scoreless outing of his career on Friday versus Oakland in a no-decision. Stroman scattered three hits and three walks over seven frames, logging a career-high 115 pitches while matching a personal best with seven strikeouts for the third time on the season. However, Toronto went on to lose 1-0 in 12 innings. "I feel comfortable, I feel like Ive gotten into a pretty good groove," Stroman said on Torontos website. "Just trying to help the team win each and every start up here." The lack of run support wasnt anything new for the righty, who has seen the Blue Jays plate more than three runs in just one of his last six outings since he won his first career start 12-2 on May 31. Stroman faced the Angels in relief on May 11 and was tagged for four runs over 1 2/3 innings. The struggling C.J. Wilson counters for Los Angeles and though he has not lost in his past three appearances, he has posted an 11.08 ERA over that time. Wilson even managed to record a victory over Minnesota on June 24 despite allowing six runs over five innings and has recorded back-to-back no-decisions since. That includes Friday versus Houston as he allowed six runs on seven hits -- including three homers -- over 4 1/3 frames. "Hes trying to make adjustments, theres no doubt about that," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said on his teams website. "C.J.s on a tough run right now." The 33-year-old southpaw is 8-6 on the year and his ERA has risen to 4.23. Wilson had a chance to pitch the Angels to a four-game road sweep of the Blue Jays back on May 12, but took the loss in that series finale after allowing five runs over six innings. He yielded a three-run homer to Jose Bautista and a two-run shot off the bat of Brett Lawrie in defeat. Los Angeles has won 11 of its last 14 versus Toronto, but the Blue Jays drew even in this set with last nights 4-0 victory. Jose Reyes sparked a struggling offense with four hits, one a two-run homer, and three RBI, while R.A. Dickey logged seven scoreless innings. Dioner Navarro knocked in the other run for the Blue Jays, who pounded out 14 hits en route to snapping a five-game slide in which they had scored only six runs. Dickey, meanwhile, allowed four hits and a walk while fanning five before Dustin McGowan and Aaron Loup followed with scoreless innings of relief to cap the five-hitter. "Changing speeds with the knuckler kept them guessing all night. I tried to throw first-pitch strikes as much as I could," said Dickey after helping Toronto end the Angels 11-game home win streak that was one shy of the club record. Tyler Skaggs gave up three runs on 11 hits across 6 2/3 frames for the Halos, whose five-game win streak came to an end. "Tyler pitched a good ballgame, except for the changeup to Reyes that ended up in the bullpen," said Scioscia, referring to Reyes seventh-inning homer. The Angels lost for just the fourth time in their last 18 games, but still trail the Oakland Athletics by 4 1/2 games for first place in the AL West.

The Vikings asked to interview Cincinnati offensive co-ordinator Jay Gruden, the younger brother of former NFL head coach and current ESPN game analyst Jon Gruden. But Jay Gruden told reporters in Cincinnati on Monday that Tennessee and Washington have also requested permission. A person with knowledge of the process, speaking on condition of anonymity because the teams have not made information about the search public, told the Associated Press that Detroit has inquired, too. The Vikings fired Leslie Frazier last week and will be making their third head coach hire in eight years, the first by general manager Rick Spielman. Though Houston and Tampa Bay have already filled their jobs, the Vikings still have four other teams interested in many of the same candidates. Spielman was in Arizona on Monday to meet with Cardinals defensive co-ordinator Todd Bowles, according John Wooten, chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance. Bowles previously interviewed with Cleveland. Wooten also said Browns defensive co-ordinator Ray Horton was scheduled to meet with Spielman in Arizona on Tuesday. The Vikings and Redskins asked for interviews with San Francisco offensive co-ordinator Greg Roman, the NFL Network reported; 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed interest in Roman but declined to specify which teams. The Vikings were one of four teams, along with the Lions, Titans and Redskins, who requested interviews with San Diego offensive co-ordinator Ken Whisenhunt, according to a report by CBS Sports. The Vikings interviewed Seattle offensive co-ordinator Darrell Bevell and defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn over the weekend, ESPN reporrted.dddddddddddd Cincinnati defensive co-ordinator Mike Zimmer is also expected to be on Spielmans list, now that the Bengals are eliminated. NFL rules allow assistant coaches on playoff teams that won wild-card games to be interviewed this week before being put off-limits again until those teams are finished. That includes the 49ers and Chargers, with Roman and Whisenhunt. Bowles and Horton are black. NFL teams are required to interview at least one minority candidate, known as "The Rooney Rule," a product of the push for diversity by Pittsburgh owner Dan Rooney. The Fritz Pollard Alliance, based in Washington, is designed to promote candidate development for coaching, front office and scouting jobs in the NFL. The FPAs strategic efforts include advocacy for and marketing of the hiring and promotion of minorities among NFL teams. Bevell, of course, was here before as the offensive co-ordinator under Brad Childress from 2006-10. Frazier decided not to keep him when he was given the job, hiring Bill Musgrave instead, but Bevell has shined in Seattle working with young quarterback Russell Wilson. Gruden has a productive record working with the Bengals, though theyve gone one and done in the playoffs in each of his three seasons there. Gruden said hed "assume" hell do all of the interviews requested of him. He said he wasnt sure about the Lions, however. "Every interview process I went on last year was different, and they all are a bit intimidating," Gruden said. "But you just have to have confident in who you are. My whole thing is Im always going to be myself. Im never going to try to be somebody else or pretend to be something Im not. And if that appeals to them, then great. And if not, Im quite happy where Im at." Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears player who was on the team for more games than anyone in team history is retiring. Long snapper Patrick Mannelly announced Friday that he is retiring after a 16-year-career with the Bears, a span in which he played in a team record 245 games and snapped the ball 2,282 times. He helped the Bears set two NFL records: 920 consecutive snaps without a blocked punt and 180 games without a blocked punt. In his career, Mannelly played on four division championship teams and one NFC championship team. He played in every game during 12 of his 16 seasons with the Bears and missed only 11 games in his NFL career. NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguezs lawsuit claiming Major League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig went on a "witch hunt" to force him from the sport has been moved from state to federal court. Major League Baseball filed a notice of removal Monday, saying claims by the New York Yankees third baseman are governed by federal law. The lawsuit, originally filed Thursday in New York Supreme Court in Manhattan, was assigned to U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield, who joined the bench in December, and U.S. Magistrate Judge Kevin N. Fox. Rodriguezs legal team could file a motion asking that the case be returned to state court. One of his lawyers, Joseph Tacopina, said in a statement that the league "knows that these state law claims properly belong where they were filed, in the New York state court." The legal action comes during a grievance by the Major League Baseball Players Association to overturn a 211-game suspension given to Rodriguez by MLB on Aug. 5 for alleged violations of baseballs drug agreement and labour contract. A hearing began last week before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. After a week of sessions, three additional days are scheduuled starting Oct.dddddddddddd 15, and more days may be needed. A decision is unlikely before winter. In his lawsuit, Rodriguez claimed MLB and Selig tried to smear the three-time AL MVP and cost him tens of millions of dollars in an attempt to cover up Seligs alleged past inaction on performance-enhancing drugs. The lawsuit claimed Selig hoped to redeem himself by going after Rodriguez. MLB responded by calling Rodriguezs actions "desperate" and a violation of the confidentiality provisions of the league and unions Joint Drug Agreement. On Friday, Rodriguez sued the Yankees team physician and a New York hospital in New York Supreme Court in the Bronx, claiming they mishandled his medical care during the 2012 American League playoffs by letting him play after failing to inform him that a test revealed an injury to his left hip joint. The lawsuit said Rodriguez then further injured himself, forcing him to suffer hospitalization, disability and emotional distress. During the 2012 post-season, Rodriguez hit .120 (3 for 25) with no RBIs before undergoing left hip surgery in January that prevented him from rejoining the Yankees until August.
