n.Graham said he was appreciative of the opportunity from xf's blog

Under fire ARL Commission boss John Grant admits he is surprised he does not have the personal endorsement of his friend and NSWRL chairman George Peponis after calls for his departure over a funding backflip. Maurice Richard Jersey .Then again, Grant reckons the events of the past week have left him scratching his head.Disgruntled NRL clubs have called an emergency general meeting on December 20 in a bid to oust Grant after the ARLC reneged on a 12-month-old funding agreement last Wednesday.Clubs require a minimum 14 votes from the games 26 shareholders - the 16 clubs, QRL, NSWRL and eight commissioners - to remove Grant.Grant said Peponis NSWRL had put a stake in the ground by reportedly joining 14 clubs - excluding the NRL-owned Gold Coast Titans and Newcastle Knights - and calling for his head.Much to Grants curiosity.Thats surprising. I think the state leagues are about the grass roots, and this discussion is about how we make sure we get the appropriate money to grass roots, Grant said of Peponis stance.Its disappointing NSWRL doesnt seem to think that is the agenda.Bulldogs great Peponis has already been linked to the ARLC chairman role.But Grant still kept the door open for Peponis to help resolve the funding issue without any blood letting.George and I have a good, direct relationship. Its been built over the last two and half years, Grant said.And George is a sensible man. But he has put a stake in the ground.We are saying to him you have got to come and talk.Its not just Peponis who has raised the ARLC bosss eyebrows.Grant admitted he was surprised at how quickly he had fallen out of favour with clubs after the governing body reneged on an agreement to fund clubs 130 per cent of their salary cap from 2018 at a meeting last Wednesday.He has since extended an olive branch, saying the ARLC were open for funding talks with clubs on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday.I must admit I sit there and think I dont quite understand this, he said.There are forces at work somewhere that are causing this shift in view on me.My relationships across this game on Tuesday were pretty sound - it is disappointing to see the herd shifting in opinion.Asked how he would gain the votes required to retain his spot, Grant said: Talking, encouraging the clubs to come back around the table and have a sensible conversation.We disappointed the clubs, clearly, and they have let us know in uncertain terms that we did but we have got to move on.This is hugely disruptive and I know we have contributed to that.But we need to forget about it and sort this out. Tomas Plekanec Jersey . Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. Artturi Lehkonen Jersey . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. http://www.canadiensauthority.com/authentic-saku-koivu-canadiens-jersey/ . A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. Cronulla star James Maloney is on track to become just the fourth player in history to claim four straight minor premierships over two different clubs.After helping the Sydney Roosters become the first club to claim a minor premiership hat-trick, Maloneys move to the Sharks has coincided with their push towards a maiden NRL title.And with just six rounds remaining, the current ladder leaders are on the verge of making Maloney the first player in over 40 years to achieve the feat four times in a row.Should Cronulla hold their spot at the top of the table, hell join Brian `Poppa Clay (Newtown and St George), Bob Moses (South Sydney and Manly), and Burnie Purcell (Western Suburbs and South Sydney).Clay was part of seven straight minor premierships from 1954-60, while Moses claimed six from 1968-73 inclusive.Retiring Newcastle forward Jeremy Smith was part of Melbourne and St George-Illawarras campaigns to lift the J.J. Giltinan shield, however the Storm were stripped of their minor premierships between 2006-08.Sharks centre Jack Bird said Maloneys arrival in the Shirre, combined with their push towards the NRL summit was far from a coincidence. Brandon Davidson Jersey. ou can just see where he took the Roosters in the last few years. As soon as he comes here were coming first. Its no fluke, he said.You all know what he can do. Hes a great player and brings a lot to this team.Obviously we missed his goalkicking here on the weekend - we missed every goal (against Newcastle). He brings a lot of composure around the boys and that winning feeling.Maloney is expected to return for Mondays clash against Gold Coast after overcoming a groin strain that forced him to miss last weeks win over Newcastle.He joins the rest of the Sharks Origin contingent, including Wade Graham, Andrew Fifita, Bird and Paul Gallen, who have been given time off following the gruelling representative campaign.Graham said he was appreciative of the opportunity to reboot.Its a long 26 weeks. Its hard on the body and its hard on the head, he said.
