Jim Irsay tweets support for Ravens’ Super Bowl win in Indy

Posted in jetevarl on August 30th, 2020

first_imgEveryone knows I love Twitter and while I’m not a captured and enraptured follower of too many sports personalities or pundits, I do follow Indianapolis Colts’ owner Jim Irsay because his feeds are the most lively of anyone on the web — NFL owner or not.Irsay is known to randomly tweet lyrics to his favorite rock songs, instant giveaways of Colts tickets and merchandise and he even gives injury reports on his team before the P.R. department releases the news.Today, he tweeted this:“I’d love 2c Steve B get the Trophy and Baltimore n Indy…got tons of friends there n it’s only fitting with my good friend R Berry n tow!”A nice gesture and one that’s certainly heartfelt.I’ve spent some time in recent years with Jim Irsay and as much angst as his last name has created in my life and the lives of many Baltimoreans over the past three decades and I can say for sure that he’s a peaceful man who believes strongly in karma and good deeds.He’s built a model franchise in Indianapolis since the death of his oft-inebriated father, Tiger Bob.His sentiments are now on the table.And for once, I don’t think anyone in Baltimore can disagree with an Irsay…last_img read more

NPFL: Rangers GM Owumi Advises Against Handing Title To Plateau United (AUDIO)

Posted in jetevarl on August 30th, 2020

first_imgWith uncertainty surrounding the conclusion of the 2019/2020 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season, General Manager of Rangers International Davidson Owumi has advised the League Management Company (LMC) not to declare table-toppers Plateau United champions in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.The NPFL has been indefinitely suspended by the LMC after 25 matchdays over fears of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, with Plateau United leading the pack with 49 points from 25 matches, four points ahead of second-placed Rivers United.Last week, Plateau United coach Abdu Maikaba said it would be ‘fair’ if the Jos-based side were awarded the league title if the season was not completed due to the pandemic.However, Owumi said there is no need to hurriedly declare any team champions of the current campaign, stating that the entire football world have been affected by the deadly coronavirus.“For the time being, there should not be any need for whether declaring champion or something like that because the competition you are going to compete in –the CAF Cups – have been suspended,” the former Rangers striker said. “There is no need for the rush.“The entire world is on a lockdown for now. So, why are you rushing to declare winner or not to declare winner. Where are you rushing to? Where will the winner go? There is no need for that. They have not even completed the CAF Champions League for the previous year. There is no need; that should not even arise.Audio Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Owumi-April-12.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Download Audio“In football, there is what they call force majeure. Now, what we are experiencing is even an extraordinary force majeure. So, we should allow the system to roll. Nobody can say with all precision, not even the best scientists in the world can say with all precision that this thing is going to go away in two weeks.He added: “Football is an integral part of the entire society. What affects other climes is also affecting football. So, we live a day at a time. When we get to that bridge, we will cross it.”In 2018, the LMC ended the league abruptly after 24 Match Days, with then leaders Lobi Stars selected to represent Nigeria in the CAF Champions League.Relatedlast_img read more

He’s a master, it’s like he’s dancing.‘There’s also Gervonta Davis, there’s quite a few guys that are good fighters.”The “Baddest Man on the Planet” also bemoaned what he sees as the “political” nature of pro boxing in 2020, expressing his eagerness to see the biggest matchups in the sport happen.He continued: “The situation is whether they will fight each other. Promoters are not allowing them to fight each other. I’d love to see them fight each other but the promoters don’t want to do it.‘It [boxing] is very political now.

Whittingham moving quickly to select his staff

Posted in jetevarl on August 14th, 2020

first_img Related Kyle Whittingham hadn’t even completed his first press conference as Utah head football coach and he already had two assistant coaches in the bag.Whittingham said “the first order of business is to assemble my staff,” and then announced that he had already selected two of his nine assistant coaches.With the departures of Urban Meyer to Florida and offensive coordinator Mike Sanford to UNLV, the state of the Utah football staff has been a concern, and Whittingham is moving quickly to stabilize it.Gary Andersen, the Utes’ defensive line coach, will take over Whittingham’s old job as defensive coordinator, and Jay Hill, a graduate assistant, will become the secondary coach. He replaces Chuck Heater, who has already left to join Meyer in Florida.Whittingham expects to have the “core” of the staff in place by next Monday and the rest of the staff soon after that, perhaps by the end of next week.He said he’d like to have an offensive coordinator in place “within two or three days” and has several candidates in mind.”I have my eyes on some good young minds, some minds that are established and have some good people to choose from,” he said.Whittingham said Ute quarterback coach Dan Mullen was a possibility, but he wouldn’t make any commitment to elevating him to offensive coordinator.”Dan’s a good football coach, and he’s welcome to stay,” Whittingham said. “Dan will be a great offensive coordinator someday, whether it’s soon or later.”Mullen has been with Urban Meyer the past four years and obviously would take the offensive coordinator job at Florida if offered.Mullen is undecided on his future but has told others he would take the offensive coordinator job at Utah over the quarterback coaching job at Florida. The question is whether Meyer is considering him for the offensive coordinator job at Florida and whether Whittingham will hire him for the coordinator position if he’s available.Whittingham wasn’t asked, but he addressed fears about the Ute offense under a defensive coach.”What you can expect offensively is what we’ve been we’ve been doing all along, mixed in with some things in addition to that,” he said.”The bottom line is we didn’t have a magical offense. We have magical players — Alex Smith, Marty Johnson, Steve Savoy. That’s what makes this thing good. The players are the nuts and bolts. The scheme will be good, but the players are what drives the offense.”Andersen said he was going to go with Whittingham wherever he ended up, whether it was Utah or BYU. But he was thrilled it was Utah.”No question, this is where I wanted to be,” he said. “I felt at times I was going on a recruiting spiel to Kyle for the last 48 hours.”Whittingham called Hill “an up-and-coming star,” and Andersen also praised the 28-year-old, who played for the Utes during the 1998 and ’99 seasons.”He cares a great deal about the university,” Andersen said. “Just like me, he played here. Whenever you coach at a school you played at, it’s very special.” Among the other coaches on the Ute staff this year, receivers coach Billy Gonzales and offensive line coach John Hevsey are both waiting to hear if Meyer wants them to join him in Gainesville. Linebackers coach Kurt Barber is going to UNLV with Sanford, while tight end coach Keith Uperesa has expressed a desire to stay in Utah.

The Heat retired O’Neal’s No. 32 jersey. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, whose team trailed by seven points at halftime, said Miami got an emotional lift from listening to Shaq’s acceptance speech.“It was like going down memory lane. It felt like 2006,” he said. “Shaq engaged the entire crowd with incredible class.“Our players were sitting there with eyes wide open. They saw a vision of what we’re trying to build and what the arena is like when you have a legitimate championship-contending team. It was a special presentation.”Indeed it was. O’Neal’s message didn’t go unnoticed by Justise Winslow. He scored a career-high 23 points and Hassan Whiteside had his sixth double-double in a row to lead Miami past the struggling Lakers, who have fallen on hard times since the days of O’Neal and Kobe Bryant.“It was a great environment,” said Winslow, who posted a career high in points and a season high in rebounds.ADVERTISEMENT Senators to proceed with review of VFA PH among economies most vulnerable to virus Where did they go?
