It does not throw too much in the beginning in the start, and sports a very clean UI that usually makes sense and will get you where you want to go in just a few button presses. These and a number of other components make TERA make a great deal of awareness for consoles, which I am convinced is a joy for lots long-time gamers of this genre. TERA is really a fun game with lots of addicting gameplay loops and grinds that add up to an experience that does not stand out too as it did several decades back, but still holds up well if you're looking for a neatly organized MMO experience using a decent story.


Speaking of story, TERA's lore is really typical RPG-fare. The two characters of main focus here, Arun and Shara, titans who wield quite intense power and whose fates became connected in an unavoidable way, or so the story does have lots of fantastical nonsense for fans of the genre to enjoy. Blue hole really went all out and had too much pleasure when designing this entire world, and that's a good thing.


Ooking for a neatly organized MMO experience with  Buy tera gold an adequate storyThe gameplay is really easy-going for quite some time, as you are able to do quite a huge chunk of this story missions without a lot of help before things get hard and force you to get serious about the ins and outs of the classes and races. But when the difficultly does ramp up, it remains there, offering a great, relatively well-paced quantity of challenge throughout. The courses you have to pick from is of a pretty good selection, and there should be at least one course here which talks to you.


Even though lots of the character models look buy ps4 tera gold  pretty good in terms of detail and design, the worlds themselves are somewhat dull in that section, and seldom bring you any designs or aesthetics you haven't noticed a thousands times before. That being said, I wouldn't say any of those worlds or dungeons quite cross into boring territory. For as detailed and interesting as the characters can be, I feel as if it's an odd juxtaposition to play them in this bland-looking world.

NEW ORLEANS -- Former NFL star Darren Sharper was sentenced Thursday to more than 18 years in prison for drugging women in order to rape them -- double the sentence recommended by prosecutors. Ryan Dzingel Jersey .One of Sharpers victims -- the only one to speak at his sentencing hearing -- rebuffed his display of contrition.For the list of people youve done this to: Go to hell, she said. Her name was not given in court, and The Associated Press does not identify victims of sexual abuse by name.The former New Orleans Saints safety, jailed since February 2014, apologized and appeared chastened by his fall from grace.I would like to apologize a thousand times, the 40-year-old Sharper said. Later, he said, looking down and sighing, Im still trying to figure out why I made some of these choices.His voice quivered and choked with emotion when he apologized to his parents.U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo, in sentencing Sharper, told him she couldnt understand how he did what he did, since he was college educated and obviously had grown up in one of the most loving households.We can never ignore the damage you inflicted on those women and society at large, she said.Sharper had pleaded guilty in federal court in New Orleans to drugging three women so he could rape them. He also has pleaded guilty or no contest in state courts in Louisiana, Arizona, California and Nevada to charges arising from allegations of drugging and raping women.Defense attorney Billy Gibbens asked for leniency because Sharpers testimony helped get late guilty pleas from two codefendants who will be sentenced in October.Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael McMahon told the judge, I dont think Mr. Sharper has really wrapped his head around the fact that he is a serial rapist.Meanwhile, the tearful victim told Sharper that because of arrogance and clear stupidity, he kept drugging and raping women even after he knew she was talking to state and federal investigators.Within days ... you gave me ... and the entire judicial system in Louisiana the big middle finger because you thought we werent capable of stopping you, she said. You continued to rape other women in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas.She said she understands that people make mistakes. But it wasnt a mistake. A mistake happens once and you never make it again. Rather, she said, it was a way of life for you and your friends.Prosecutors suggested a 9-year prison term for Sharper under a multi-jurisdictional plea deal, but Milazzo rejected it in June as too lenient. The sentence she imposed, 18 years and four months imprisonment, was 15 months short of the maximum. Sharper also was fined $20,000. His sentence will run concurrently with any state sentence.The judge said he will be on three years supervised release after he gets out of prison, including sex treatment conditions and registration as a sex offender.Sharper or his friend Brandon Licciardi, a former sheriffs deputy in neighboring St. Bernard Parish, put anti-anxiety drugs or sedatives into womens drinks so they could rape them, according to a 15-page statement signed as part of Sharpers plea agreement.Milazzo has scheduled sentencing Oct. 13 for Licciardi and a second New Orleans codefendant, Erik Nunez.Charges around the country involve nine victims, but Milazzo has said in court that there may be as many as 16.Sharper was named All-Pro six times and chosen for the Pro Bowl five times during a career that included stints with the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. He played in two Super Bowls, one with the Packers as a rookie and one with New Orleans Saints when they won in 2010.He ended a 14-year career in 2011. He was working as an NFL network analyst when women began telling police in several cities similar stories of blacking out while drinking with him and waking up groggy to find they had been sexually abused. Adidas Senators Jerseys .

There are signs of life at Swansea City, where Bob Bradley has revived hopes of escaping relegation after back-to-back home victories. Masahiro Tanaka Jersey .The goal for the Swans is to carry that form to the road, where they face a stern challenge Wednesday night at The Hawthorns against a West Bromwich Albion side eager to bounce back from a tough loss.Entering midweek play, the Welsh side are at the top of the drop, ahead of Hull City for 18th on goal difference and one point behind West Ham United. Swansea City (3-3-9) put forth their best display of the season Saturday, belting Sunderland 3-0 as Fernando Llorente had a brace following a second-half penalty by Gylfi Sigurdsson.The victory came after their heaviest defeat of the campaign -- a 5-0 thrashing administered by Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. Bradley was quick to praise his players for their ability to regroup.I have had discussions with a lot of my players this week, and the word many of them used was pride. I said back to them: What does pride look like on the field? Pride has to turn (into) intensity and clean sheets, you cant just talk about pride.You have to turn that pride into something more, and at the end of that game we can look at the table and say that while we are not out of trouble yet, it looks better than last week. Now the challenge for us is to keep on going.Swansea City have been brutal outside Liberty Stadium, going winless in six road matches (0-1-5) since opening the season with a victory at Burnley. They have been outscored 15-5 in that span, failing to keep a clean sheet and giving up three or more goals on three occasions. But Sigurdsson thinks the Swans are poised to end their road woes.This is just one win, but we have not won 3-0 in a long time so the result gives us a huge confidence boost, he told the trams official website. We can build on this result. We have performed well in three out of our last four games and we must take this performance into our games against Middlesbrough and West Brom.The Icelandic midfielder has four goals and three assists in 10 lifetime matches versus the Baggies and scored in last seasons corresponding fixture at The Hawthorns, which ended in a 1-1 draw on a goal by Salomon Rondon in the 92nd minute.West Bromwich Albion (5-5-5) are eighth in the table, ahead of Everton on goal difference after a 1-0 setback at league-leading Chelsea on Sunday. The Baggies put forth a strong effort, only to have an individual moment of brilliance by Diego Costa inside the final quarter-hour deny them any share of the points.The defeat ended a four-match unbeaten streak for West Brom, but manager Tony Pulis could find no fault with his players efforts after they limited the London side to just one shot on goal outside of Costas marker on 76 minutes.The players worked so hard and they gave everything and we were really disappointed we didnt get anything out of it, the gaffer told West Broms official website.For a manager who knows a thing or two about rescuing clubs from relegation scraps as Bradley is now trying to accomplish at Swansea, Pulis has enjoyed the luxury of continuity with the Baggies in this campaign as he seeks the first top-half finish of his career.Pulis will likely be able to field the same starting XI for a fifth straight match as West Brom try to win three consecutive league matches at The Hawthorns for the first time since Feb. 11-March 14, 2015.They deserve to be unchanged because theyve played so well and were desperate to get one or two, Pulis said. If they play well, then they deserve their place. This group has worked hard.Swansea is a massive game for us Wednesday night. Weve got to make sure all the players are up for it. They have a great victory, a smashing performance against Sunderland. Its always the next game, and thats one of the biggest things you learn in the Premiership.Swansea also posted a 1-0 victory in the other match between the teams last season. The Swans are 6-1-3 in top-fight matches versus West Brom since their initial promotion to the Premier League for the 2011-12 season. Roger Maris Jersey . After taking two big hits this week -- losing at home and dropping back-to-back games for the first time all season -- Indiana struck back by playing its most complete game of the year. Yogi Berra Jersey . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres. http://www.cheapyankeesjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=cheap-thurman-munson-jersey . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. Drivers: Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen Points: 398 (Third in constructors) Best result: 2nd (Multiple races) Best qualifying: 3rd, (Multiple race)There was so much hope around Ferrari in pre-season testing. Finally technical director James Allison had been given the opportunity to influence the design direction of a car from the ground up and it looked genuinely quick. Speaking at the launch of the SF16-H, team principal Maurizio Arrivabene said: Last year the objective was three victories, we got it. But I think this year we need to push a bit more. So its going to be the championship. At least we would like to fight until the end for the championship.The evidence of the first race suggested Ferrari could achieve its lofty ambitions as Sebastian Vettel took the lead in the first corner and only lost the race due to a poor strategy call under a red flag. But from that point onwwards things started to unravel. Brett Gardner Jersey. Another shot at victory went begging in Spain and then a third in Canada. The car was far from a disaster, but progress was not matching ambition, and in Maranello that rarely goes unpunished. By July the team was having crisis talks chaired by CEO Sergio Marchionne and by August Allison had left the team.In his place Ferrari promoted engine boss Mattia Binotto, but only two more podiums followed. The technical side of the team has now been restructured to encourage ideas to flow more freely and reduce reaction time -- two aspects that will be keys to success under the new regulations in 2017 -- but the prospect of Ferrari winning a title looks more distant now than it has at any point in the last 12 months. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '

MINNEAPOLIS -- Los Angeles Sparks win WNBA title, beating Minnesota Lynx 77-76 for 3-2 series victory. Ryan Dzingel Jersey . Mark Borowiecki Jersey . Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. Bobby Ryan Jersey . Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. http://www.cheapsenatorsjerseyschina.com/frank-finnigan-jersey/ . -- Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was charged Thursday with driving while intoxicated, a day after he was suspended for an NFL substance-abuse policy violation. CHICAGO -- Jay Beagle usually plays on one of Washingtons last two lines. He does whatever is asked of him, and his teammates love him.So this was one sweet night for the Capitals.Beagle had two goals, Marcus Johansson scored at 2:20 of overtime, and Washington snapped Chicagos seven-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory over the Blackhawks on Friday.Beagle is a total pro, coach Barry Trotz said. He doesnt look for any accolades. He just comes and works every day. From our standpoint, I know our room is really happy when he gets on the board.Braden Holtby had 32 saves, leading the Capitals to their sixth win in seven games in the opener of a three-game trip.Washington defenseman Dmitry Orlov made a nice pass to Johansson for a one-timer that beat Corey Crawford on the glove side. Johanssons seventh goal of the season helped the Capitals rebound from a 3-0 loss to San Jose on Tuesday with another game looming on Saturday against Carolina.Thats probably what pleases me the most, Trotz said, is that you know were not extending anything on a negative way.Marian Hossa had a goal and an assist for Chicago, which extended its point streak to 10 games. Defenseman Brian Campbell also scored, and Crawford finished with 24 stops.The Blackhawks played without center Artem Anisimov, who was scratched after he left Wednesday nights 2-1 overtime win at St. Louis with an upper-body injury. Anisimov, who has eight goals and nine assists in 14 games, could return as soon as Sunday against Montreal.Chicago was trailing 2-1 when it pulled Crawford for an extra attacker with 2:13 to go. It broke through for the tying score when Artemi Panarins shot went off the stick of Washington defenseman Brooks Orpik and trickled through to Hossa on the side of the crease for his seventh goal in eight games with 22.3 seconds left.It was a huge point, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. Theyve got a good hockey team. They check well. They didnt give up much in the middle of the ice. Certainly had a great loook at the end with Hossa scoring. Jean-Gabriel Pageau Jersey. ashington jumped in front in the first after Capitals center Evgeny Kuznetsov was sent off for holding Hossa. Defenseman Matt Niskanen made a great diving play to knock the puck out of the Washington zone, starting a 2-on-1 with T.J. Oshie and Beagle.Oshie made a nice saucer pass to Beagle, who knocked it in for his first career short-handed goal. It was his first point since he scored his first goal of the season in a victory at Winnipeg on Nov. 1.Obviously Osh makes an unreal play on that PK and I just tap it into a wide-open net, said Beagle, who has 34 goals in 324 career games. That was all him and Nisky.Campbell responded with a tying power-play goal just 22 seconds later, but Beagle skated behind the net for a nifty wraparound and a 2-1 Washington lead at 14:44.Hes been big for us every single year and every year he gets better and better, Holtby said.It turned into a goaltender battle from there, with Crawford and Holtby taking turns frustrating would-be scorers.Holtby stopped a big drive by Brent Seabrook late in the first and made a right blocker stop on Panarin early in the third.Justin Williams got open for a nice look late in the second, but Crawford used a blocker to knock it over the net. He also made a glove save on John Carlson with 12:18 left in the third.Game notes Crawford went to the locker room for an equipment issue with 7:02 left in the second, but he quickly returned to the ice. ...

TORONTO -- The sun has set outside the Canadian Football Leagues headquarters, perched on the third floor of a red brick warehouse near the eastern edge of this city. Wholesale Oilers Jerseys . Its 10:45 p.m., halfway through a long night of work, and Marc Cobb is staring at the 20-inch video screen on the table in front of him.The Calgary Stampeders and BC Lions are slugging it out some 2,500 miles away in Vancouver, a listless matchup that will end in a 37-9 Stampeders victory, when Cobb sits up straight. He begins barking into his headset.Other hash, Timmy! Other hash! Ball goes on the other hash!On the screen, the Lions are still huddling. If you watch closely, you can see referee Tim Kroeker nod, pick up the ball, and move it to the far hashmark. Play continues without interruption. Few realize that the CFLs eye in the sky has rescued the spot.Jake Ireland, a retired referee and CFL Hall of Fame member, is sitting to Cobbs right. He gives a demonstrative thumbs-up. Darren Hackwood, the CFLs director of officiating, is excited as well. Great catch, guys, he says as the Lions line up for their next play.The future of football officiating at the games highest level has arrived, courtesy of the CFL.On this warm August evening, Cobb is the CFLs video official. Sitting in the leagues tiny Command Centre, a 12-by-20-foot room separated from the rest of the league office by a glass wall, he is empowered to fix obvious mistakes while watching the same high-definition broadcast that fans see at home. He can overrule unreviewable penalty calls, alert referees to administrative errors, and ensure accurate identification of players who commit fouls.The pilot program, part of the CFLs dramatic expansion of replay review in 2016, is being watched closely by the NFL. It is not without its faults and limitations, and CFL commissioner Jeffrey Orridge used the word trialing to describe the experiment. But it is an effort that all sports leagues will consider over time as a method for marrying technology with tradition in the era of HD home viewership.We are starting to service a group that has much greater expectations on levels of accuracy based on what they see, said Glen Johnson, the CFLs senior vice president of football. I fundamentally believe that when youre watching the game at home, you dont care about, Oh, yeah, the official is out of position. Rats. Oh well. Its, I just saw, on my fancy expensive television, that the call is clearly wrong. I dont understand why they cant fix it. I dont get it. So thats what were focused on here.Using technology to close that gapThe CFLs moderate size allows it to be flexible and nimble in ways that the larger and more heavily scrutinized NFL cannot. Orridge considers the league to be a big enough brand to have significant equity, but small enough to be nimble and to be able to investigate and adopt innovation.The video official project is the latest stage in an approach that started in 2013, when the CFL added defensive pass interference to its list of reviewable plays.It marked a foray into reviewing more than simple objective calls such as ball possession and whether a pass is complete. Pass interference is a judgment call that traditionally relies on an officials instantaneous assimilation of the action relative to rules. NFL owners, for one, have no appetite for taking it away from on-field personnel. But after three trial seasons of practice in the CFL, Johnson felt confident about its progress -- boosted in large part by a critical turn of events in the 2015 Grey Cup -- and proposed an expansion.For this season, the CFL added offensive pass interference, illegal contact and roughing the kicker/passer, among other subjective penalties, to its list of reviewable plays. The intent, Johnson said, was to fix obvious mistakes that the common home viewer could see.That mantra is quite literally painted on the wall of the CFL Command Centre. As he described the project, Johnson was sitting underneath a message that read: The purpose of instant replay is to correct rulings where there is indisputable visual evidence that an incorrect call has been made on the field.The point, Johnson said, is to get better at the very, very small percentage of stuff were not getting right. Just as important: Avoid attempting to correct the vast swath of debatable and/or 50-50 calls in a way that would bog down the flow of the game.We can use technology today to close that gap, Johnson said. But whatever is in that gap, we really only want to deal with the big and obvious things.CFL replay officials are not looking for a slight tug of the jersey or a glancing blow to the helmet. Instead, as demonstrated in the 2015 Grey Cup, theyre looking to correct the kind of call that sends teams and fans into an exasperated frenzy.With four minutes, 20 seconds remaining in that game, then-Edmonton Eskimos coach Chris Jones challenged an incompletion on a pass to receiver Dorel Walker. The replay showed Ottawa Redblacks defender Brandon Sermons slamming into Walker and shoving him out of the way of the pass.It was a clear example of pass interference. Back in the Command Centre, the replay official agreed and assessed a 37-yard penalty. The Eskimos, who had been trailing 20-18, were now in position for what turned out to be the championship-clinching touchdown.Had the coach not had the ability to challenge that, we might still be talking about that call, Johnson said. So guess what? He challenged it. We fixed it. It was the right thing, and no one talked about it for more than a week after the game. They just remember that it was a great game and the right team won.But coaches look for every advantage imaginable, of course, and they pounced this season on the newly reviewable penalties. If they didnt have one already, CFL teams assigned an intern-level employee to the coaching booth during games, utilizing a custom video tablet -- complete with toggling and scrubbing functionality -- to scour plays for potentially reviewable calls.Consider a Week 9 game this year in which Hamilton Tiger-Cats coach Kent Austin challenged an interception that his quarterback had thrown in the end zone to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Austins complaint? A missed illegal contact penalty on the far side of the field, some 40 yards away from the interception and in a direction that quarterback Zach Collaros never looked.The replay official reversed the interception. Instead of the Roughriders taking over after a touchback, the Tiger-Cats had first-and-goal because of contact that was technically illegal but had no impact on the play.In the end it worked out, but you kind of have a receiver coming off the field on every play saying he was grabbed, said Collaros, a former University of Cincinnati star. If youre all of a sudden in a second-and-10 situation, you can be like, Hey, somebody probably got grabbed, and challenge the call. So Im not a fan of it. I think you need some human element in the game.Indeed, reviews nearly doubled in the first 10 weeks, from 1.25 per game in 2015 to 2.43 thus far in 2016. Just as important, the CFLs average time per game swelled by just under three minutes.To be honest, I hate it, Collaros said. [Replay expansion] sucks. It just slows the game down. It just slows it down too much, in my opinion. I dont want to get fined for saying that, and we benefited from it once tonight. But it seems like it always just takes too long.I witnessed what can be a tense process from the inside during my visit to the Command Centre. As soon as a review was initiated, a red digital timer appeared at the bottom of a 60-inch screen on the front wall. Two 55-inch screens were below. One showed the live broadcast of the game, and the other projected the screen that Ireland used at his table.On this occasion, the Montreal Alouettes challenged an Ottawa Redblacks completion. Technician Louie Polyzois started the timer and shouted its progress at regular intervals.When an alternative view became available via the TSN broadcast, Polyzois captured and titled it.New angle! he shouted. Angle B!Im not seeing anything that tells me anything, Ireland said.45 seconds! said Polyzois.Are there any other angles? Ireland asked. Speaking directly to the TSN broadcasting truck, he repeated: TSN, do you have any other angles?Come on, guys, Hackwood said.Unofficially, the CFL has a soft cap on replay reviews at 90 seconds.Anything else? Ireland said one more time.One [minute], fifteen [seconds]! Polyzois shouts.I see no mistake here, Ireland said.Me either, Cobb added.Tommy, the call is confirmed! Ireland said through his headset to referee Tom Vallesi.The review is over in one minute and 16 seconds.Midseason tweakAmid consistent complaints about the number and duration of challenges, from players and fans alike, the CFL took rare midseason action. A week after my visit, the league convened an emergency meeting of its board of governors. Effective immediately, it changed the challenge rule.Now, a team loses a timeout if its first challenge fails. (Previously, a timeout was taken only if a second challenge failed.) Some might have viewed the change as an admission that the league had allowed replay to grow too large, but CFL officials considered it in the context of their corporate culture.In a statement, Orridge said in part: We are proud of the innovation we have brought to our game, including innovation in the use of replay, and the fact that these advances are being followed by other leagues. But innovation in any pursuit is often followed by adjustments and alterations.The NFL is far too conservative to expand replay to this degree. Senior vice president of officiating Dean Blandino has said he wants judgment calls to remain with on-field officials, and there isnt much support among players for a radical change.Washington Redskins veteran defensive back DeAngelo Hall, for one, said he couldnt fathom such a transition to reviewing pass interference.No, Hall said during a training camp interview, his eyes growing wide at the mere mention. No. No. No. Its too hard. Its one thing when youre reviewing something that is black and white: Is it a foul or not a foul? But judgment calls? The guy in the booth might see it differently than the guy on the field, and he might see it differently than someone in an office. Whos right? Theres such a fine line and such a judgment call there, I think it would be really hard to do. Almost impossible.Ten saves per gameReasonable people can debate the limits of replay review and whether it should include judgment calls. But for the CFL -- and the NFL, for that matter -- the video official concept makes too much sense to ignore. Why should coaches, fans and players see easily fixed mistakes, once undetected but now visible on HD screens and scoreboards, go uncorrected?Johnsons short answer: There is no reason to. His video official, in fact, is tasked in part with maintaining the publics trust.On the night of my visit, Cobb toggled between the live broadcast feed and an all-24 angle -- CFL rules allow 12 players per side -- every time he saw a flag. One of his jobs: identifying the number of the player who committed the foul.Sometimes, he simply told the referee: It was No. 90, nine-zero, if you need it.On other occasions, it was clear that the referee was asking him for help.Im looking now, Cobb replied to one query. Switching to the other angle. Yes. No. 56. Definitely. Confirmed.It might sound simple, Johnson said, but theres nothing worse than us announcing, Holding on No. 35, and our broadcast partner going to the replay and No. 35 is not even touching a guy. There is an awkward silence, and people watching at home are like, These guys cant get it right! In fact, it was No. 36 or No. 38. Just fixing a number can help.Cobbs job is aided by the CFL schedule, which never has more than one game underway at a time. And for now, video officials are limited only to penalties that are not otherwise reviewable. They also cant initiate penalties that werent called, even if they are obvious, although Johnson said that day might soon come.Regardless, Hackwood estimated that the video official has contributed between eight and 10 fixes per game this season. Some might be simply flipping the hashmarks or correcting a players number. On other occasions, the video official helps on-field officials spot the ball after penalties on kick returns.Thats one of the most difficult things for our officials on the field to do, Hackwood said. Youre watching the penalty and then you have to immediately find where the ball is so you know how to mark it off. The video official has been very helpful with that. We were finding that we were consistently 4 or 5 yards off on those plays before we started this.Said Johnson: Nobody notices that. Theres no credit given. But I can tell you the outcome is people think were getting better. They believe the officiating product is getting better because of that. So theres some real benefit to fixing a bunch of those things in the background.The big payoff, of course, is when the video official overrules an erroneous penalty called on the field. The system was designed for these instances to occur infrequently -- remember, the CFL is targeting only the obvious mistakes -- and through 10 weeks it has happened seven times.Four of the seven have corrected the CFLs tricky offside rule for receivers who are in motion before the snap. On the field it appeared that the receivers were past the line of scrimmage when the ball moved. A quick look at the replay revealed they were not.On one occasion in Week 5, the Edmonton Eskimos had a 40-yard touchdown play against Hamilton called back on an offside penalty. After a few minutes, it was announced that the video official ruled there was no offside and the touchdown would stand.Marshall Ferguson, a former quarterback at Canadas McMaster University and now the Tiger-Cats radio analyst, sat in the booth stunned.At that point, Ferguson said, the conspiracy theorist in me is going, They just want a lot of scoring to happen so theyre going to help teams score lots of points. But when we saw the frame frozen, we could see there was no offsides.Said Collaros: Theres times when it looks like the call is easy and they still dont change it, so it just feels weird to me. The conspiracy theories start to click in there.The NFL experienced a similar reaction last season when a number of officiating sources theorized that league executives were whispering in the ears of referees during games to help avoid mistakes. The NFL has granted Blandino, senior director of officiating Al Riveron and/or the designated replay official formal authority this season to consult with the referee on application of rules, proper assessment of penalties, the proper down and the status of the game clock. The NFL made clear, however, that no one can advise referees about penalty calls as the CFL does.The futureThe CFL Command Centre hardly resembles a bustling hive of innovation.It is about the size of a college dorm room, with seating for no more than six people. Two window air conditioning units help cool the overflow of video and communications equipment. Keeping the door open helps air circulation, and Hackwood closes it only when the cleaning crew arrives to vacuum the rest of the CFL office.Occasionally, the occupants raise their voices to be heard over the sounds of a busy city three stories below on Wellington Street. Tim Hortons coffee cups dominate the decor. Standing against the back wall, Hackwood quietly ticked off the leagues observations near the seasons midpoint.CFL officiating is running a 94 percent accuracy rate, about two points higher than 2015, based on internal grading of every play. On average, the system -- on-field officials combined with video and replay men -- is allowing two incorrect penalties to stand per game and missing six that should have been made.The victory for us is that we feel the officiating is better this year, Johnson said. But perfection is not the right thing to chase. What we want to keep chasing is the obvious mistakes that are missed for some unknown reason, the ones that you would just expect to be made. Whether you put an 8-year-old in the room who doesnt know a whole lot about it, but kind of has a sense of whats right and wrong, or you put a really avid fan in the room, we want them to both think the same thing. We want to get to that good commonsense factor.Its easy to imagine similar conversations in the boardrooms of other sports leagues. How best to incorporate the inevitable creep of technology while maintaining tradition, transparency and humanity? Among major North American sports, the CFL has jumped in most aggressively.Orridge invoked the Japanese expression kaizen -- continuous improvement -- to illustrate the leagues motivation. Both he and Johnson acknowledge that there is a limit to how accurate officiating can be, and neither man can foresee a day when a football game is fully administrated from the Command Centre rather than the field.But the tension between the home audience and the view on the field, Orridge said, must continue to be addressed.Technology has provided us the opportunity to be more critical and to scrutinize to a level that has been unprecedented, he said. We can see multiple camera angles at various speeds and literally dissect a play, and the on-field official has to make a split-second decision in real time. So therein lies the tension between what the home audience sees, and even the in-stadium audience, because weve been able to transport that type of technology in-stadium as well. But the tension is always going to have an element of human error. Thats because of who we are. There has to be an allowance and acceptance of that.But were always trying to get better. Zack Kassian Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. Ty Rattie Jersey . According the Toronto Star, a knee injury will keep Sundin out of the lineup, which includes former teammates Gary Roberts, Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Curtis Joseph. http://www.cheapoilersjerseyschina.com/ .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley insists he will not be afraid to change the rules regarding Ryder Cup eligibility following last months defeat at Hazeltine.Only European Tour members can play on the team, a regulation which meant captain Darren Clarke did not have the option of selecting world No. 12 Paul Casey, who gave up his membership to concentrate on the PGA Tour.The chance to play in the Ryder Cup has long been seen as one of the key ways the European Tour can try to prevent its top stars from playing full time on the more lucrative PGA Tour.But Pelley believes it is his job to make the Tour an attractive enough proposition that players will choose to play on this side of the Atlantic, rather than be forced to do so.We are always talking to our top players, said Pelley, who was responding to calls this week from Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy to change the eligibility criteria. We are always listening to what they have to say. We also want to have the best possible team at the Ryder Cup.We are having discussions regarding the qualification system now. We will continue to have them. We will have them with our players. We will have them with our tournament committee and our board over the coming weeks and months.We will adjust the Ryder Cup qualification if we feel that we need to. We wont be afraid to make the changes.I would say that part of our job at the Tour is to get players to come and play because it is a terrific place to play. We play at world-class resorts, like here in Turkey. We play on great golf courses in great cities. To be a world-class player, the European Tour is a fantastic place to be.Our job as the gatekeepers of the Tour is to provide bigger purses, greateer experiences and greater courses so that the players want to play here and play here more than they need to just to stay a member and so be a Ryder Cup player. Adam Larsson Jersey. The Ryder Cup is a critical component of our tour and it is a sensational event. But it shouldnt be the only reason why someone wants to be on our tour. Thats our job at hand right now.Pelley conceded that the topic may have only resurfaced due to the 17-11 defeat at Hazeltine, Europes heaviest in the biennial contest since 1981.McIlroy told the No Laying Up podcast that Caseys absence definitely hurt us and Westwood agreed with his team-mates assertion that the best 12 players should feature on each side, regardless of where they play.At the end of the day, youre still European and you still have the passion to play for Europe and represent them, Westwood said.If you prove that youre world class on, say, the PGA Tour and not the European Tour, why should that have any bearing on whether you can play or not?Speaking during the third round of the Turkish Airlines Open, Pelley also revealed there would be changes in how future Ryder Cup venues are selected, with Turkey a possible host.Italy beat Spain, Germany and Austria to the rights for the 2022 Ryder Cup after what the Tour itself described as an exhaustive and comprehensive bid process.The challenge I had with the process was that all of these organisations host tournaments for us and there is one winner and three losers, Pelley added. The three who were not awarded the Ryder Cup are still our partners. That I found was not a good way forward.Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '

STARKVILLE, Miss. Flexbase Yankees Jerseys . -- Nick Fitzgerald tied a Mississippi State record with seven total touchdowns and led the Bulldogs to a 56-41 win over Samford on Saturday.The win snapped Mississippi States three-game losing streak and the Bulldogs (3-5) had 669 yards of total offense.Fitzgerald was 20 of 35 for 417 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for 117 yards and two more touchdowns.It is great to get a win and I know our guys were fired up downstairs to get a win, said Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen. I dont know another team in the country more appreciative of getting a win, especially with the way we have lost three games. So I am really happy for our guys. We got a lot of things to improve on but a lot of guys made great plays out there today.Donald Gray caught three of Fitzgeralds touchdown passes and totaled a career-high 207 yards receiving. Fred Ross had nine catches for 107 yards and one touchdown for Mississippi State.Devlin Hodges set career highs with 42 completions, 69 attempts and 468 yards passing for Samford (6-2). He had four TD passes and three interceptions.I am disappointed with certain things on defense, added Mullen. We had way too many missed tackles on the back end. We knew they had a high-tempo offense but I am really happy to see some younger guys starting to make big plays on defense. That really picks up the spirit of the team.Mississippi State led 28-20 at halftime and managed to put the game away late in the third quarter. Senior linebacker DeAndre Ward returned his first career interception 35 yards for a touchdown, giving Mississippi State a 49-26 advantage with 2:48 left in the third quarter.Samford ran 104 total plays and also rushed for 159 yards. Krondis Larry led the ground game with nine carries for 101 yards while Hodges added 45 yards rushing.Karel Hamilton had 14 catches for 213 yards and two touchdowns. Kelvin McKnight added 13 catches for 115 yards and one touchdown for Samford.THE TAKEAWAYSamford: The visiting Bulldogs got another huge game from Hodges. The sophomore went over 400 yards for the third time in four games and increased his season passing totals to 2913 yards and 28 TDs.Mississippi State: The defense was down four starters and continued its downward spiral this season, surrendering a season-high 627 yards against Division 1-AA Samford.UP NEXTSamford: The Bulldogs return to Southern Conference play next Saturday and travel to conference leader The Citadel.Mississippi State: The Bulldogs wrap up a brief two-game home stand and host Texas A&M next Saturday. Womens Yankees Jerseys .

JOHNS, N. http://www.cheapyankeesjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=cheap-austin-romine-jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Was there ever a happier rugby day than that afternoon at the Millennium Stadium in May 2006 when Munster finally won the Heineken Cup?Their exploits over the previous few years had provided a lovable underdog narrative which did wonders for the standing of the tournament in its formative seasons. Year after year theyd make their way to the later stages, find some cruel way of not winning the trophy and yet be back again the following season, their hopes undimmed.As early as 2002 I heard fans on the bus back to Toulouse from their defeat at Castres speculating that weve had a good run, but thats probably it, unable to believe that they would be able to sustain their challenge once Mick Galwey and Peter Clohessy had retired.But back they came every year, and in ever-increasing numbers, red-shirted hordes whose amiability and free spending on their travels made them just about the most welcome invading army in recorded European history. To see Anthony Foley lifting the trophy in Cardiff was, much as Bobby Charlton raising footballs equivalent had been in 1968, to celebrate the completion of a great sporting journey.They were sustained by forces on show under much less happy circumstances this past weekend. As Tyrone Howe, an eloquently dignified presence on Sky TV put it, there is no team where the sense of rugby as a family is greater than Munster.They were driven on by those fans, and their rapport with players like Anthony Foley, who died shockingly young and suddenly at the age of 42.It is a cruel, early end to a remarkable rugby life. You can hardly speak of it as unfulfilled, given how much he had accomplished as a player, but it is impossible to wonder might not still have been to come as a coach.Might he have led a second coming for Munster, once more (and against still greater odds) fashioning a countervailing force against the greater resources of the French and English clubs? Was he destined to coach Ireland? The IRFU is perhaps the most relaxed of all of the four home unions about overseas appointments, but must surely regard anyone who gets to be head coach of one of the provincial franchises it part-owns as a potential future national coach.There is a sense of how much he meant -- most of all in Munster and in Ireland, but also across the whole European game -- in the eloquence of reactions within a few hours of his death being announced.There were the fans singing Fields of Athenry at the gates of the Stade Yves-du-Manoir. Weve had Howe and Donal Lenihan on Sky, along with Robert Kitson and Tom English in print. There was Nick Mullinss typically perceptive reaction that Foley was one of those people that you felt you knew them even if you didnt, because they spoke and played with their heart, along with Munster CEOs Garrett Fitzgeralds description of him -- and you know something unusual is happening when official statements get eloqquent -- as the embodiment of Munster rugby. Andy Pettitte Jersey. You could see that in the way he played. The family was rugby royalty. He was the son of Brendan -- one of the Munstermen who beat the All Blacks in 1978. But it was -- suitably for a citizen of a Republic -- a very democratic form of royalty. Crowds in all sports love most of all the players who feel like projections of themselves, and give the impression that if they were not playing they would be among the masses on the terraces.Munsters singular achievement was to put out entire teams who felt like that, but none more so than Foley. But if he was the man on the Thomond Park terraces raised to sporting eminence, he was also a singular and distinctive figure.It wasnt just that he was a very fine No.8 forward; he was the smartest player of Keith Woods acquaintance, with a gift for identifying space sufficient to impress a top-class wing like Howe. To have played 71 consecutive Heineken Cup ties was a measure of his commitment and durability, while his 23 tries from No.8 could be a long-stay resident of the competition record books.He was also handled important changes with aplomb in an era full of them. Archetypal local hero he may have been, but he played through an era which saw the provincial representative team his father had played for transformed into a highly competitive professional franchise which recruited prime international talent, yet still retained the local core so vital to the passion which drove both players and supporters.He went through the transition from amateurism to professionalism like an Irish version of Jason Leonard, mixing the discipline and competitiveness essential to professional success with a continued enjoyment of the social side of the game. And you dont have to be that traditional to think that enjoying the odd pint of Guinness may make for more relaxed, better balanced sportsmen than regarding ones body as a temple.And his was an era in which Irish rugby players went from being likeable losers to winners -- still generally likeable, but first and foremost winners. The teams he played in usually won, starting with the Shannon teams with whom he won five Irish championships, through to Munsters triumphs in Europe and the transformation of the Irish team once the Five Nations became Six in 2000.While that change in fortunes is quite rightly linked in most memories to the arrival of players like Brian ODriscoll and Peter Stringer, it should be noted that it coincided with the recall, after a three year absence, of Foley, who was to play in all but one of Irelands Six Nations games to the end of the 2005 championship, winning 21 out of 29 matches across that time.Cruelly cut short as it was, this was still one hell of a rugby life. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '

NEW YORK -- Olympic gymnastics star Gabby Douglas was hospitalized Sunday night, forcing her to miss a scheduled appearance with her U. Martin Hanzal Jersey .S. teammates at the MTV Video Music Awards.Gabby is back in the hospital tonight being treated for a seriously infected past mouth injury. She continues to have deep swelling and adverse reactions to medications, publicist Lesley Burbridge said in an email to The Associated Press.Earlier Sunday, the 20-year-old Douglas posted on social media that she was out of the hospital.Douglas had been scheduled to present an award alongside teammates Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian and Aly Raisman at Madison Square Garden.The fifth member of our team, Gabby Douglas, is having medical issues and unfortunately couldnt make it tonight, Biles said at the awards show. Feel better, Gabby!Without Douglas, the four other Olympians took turns introducing the nominees for the best female video category, an award that went to singer Beyonce.Nicknaming themselves the Final Five, the quintet of gymnasts won a combined nine medals, breaking the record of eight won by the 1984 and 2008 USA womens gymnastics teams.The five women nominated for best female video worked hard to be on top of their games, Raisman said from the VMA stage. Theyre role models for us as we hope to be to a younger generation of women.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Devin Shore Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. Cheap Stitched Stars Jerseys . Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a skid-snapping win. Quick stopped 27 shots in his return from a 24-game injury absence, Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:55 to play, and the Kings snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. http://www.wholesalestarsjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-marc-methot-jersey . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. (STATS) -- Some teams like to open their season facing an overmatched opponent to ease into the new campaign.Thats not the way Eastern Washington operates. Not even close.Beau Baldwins squad opens 2016 on Saturday night against a Washington State program that defeated Miami in last Decembers Sun Bowl. And that matchup with a Pac-12 foe might not even be the most challenging of the Eagles first four games.The murderers row continues when Eastern Washington, ranked 14th in the STATS FCS Top 25, visits five-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State next Saturday before its home opener Sept. 17 against fellow Missouri Valley Football Conference power and fifth-ranked Northern Iowa.Its exciting to play a tough schedule and put ourselves in some challenging situations, Baldwin said. Thats what our coaches and players love to do. I always wonder if it can get any more challenging than whatever we did last year or the year before, but this one might be the topper.It starts with a Washington State team that won nine games last season and is led by a Heisman Trophy contender at quarterback in Luke Falk.They arent just a Pac-12 opponent -- to me they are a Pac-12 opponent thats going to win a lot of Pac-12 games, Baldwin said. So its going to be a huge challenge for us.The Eagles, the last team to win the FCS championship before the Bisons unprecedented run, have a history of playing Pac-12 teams tough. They blew a fourth-quarter lead in a 59-52 loss at Washington in 2014 and knocked off No. 25 Oregon State 49-46 in 2013. In the last matchup with Washington State in 2012, the Eagles fell 24-20.A year ago, Eastern Washington opened with a 61-42 loss at No. 7 Oregon and followed with a three-point defeat at UNI to fall to 0-6 all-time against the Panthers.When I sit down with (athletic director) Bill Chaves and talk about the games we have the opportunity to play, we get excited about putting ourselves on that stage and in that challenging moment, Baldwin said. Its a chance to do special things.Eastern Washingtons brutal September doesnt end with the conclusion of the nonconference slate, however, as it opens league play against Northern Arizona, the Big Sky preseason favorite by both the coaches and the media.The road is treacherous, but the Eagles are well equipped.The offense is led by 2015 STATS FCS Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp, who caught a conference-record 114 passes as a junior last season. By the time this season is over hell likely hold all the major FCS career receiving recorrds, as he is two touchdowns away from the mark, 486 yards shy and 84 receptions short. Brian Bellows Jersey. He has not only thrashed FCS defensive backs but FBS secondaries, as well. In three career games against Pac-12 opponents, the three-time FCS first-team All-American has caught 28 passes for 510 yards with eight TDs. He set Autzen Stadium records of 15 catches for 246 yards against Oregon last September.The problem for opposing defenses is Eastern Washington has another deep threat in Kendrick Bourne, who had 73 receptions for 998 yards and eight TDs in 2015.The Eagles also have plenty of experience at quarterback, but just who will be taking the majority of snaps is anyones guess.Four days before the opener, Baldwin said he wasnt sure who would be starting and implied that hell be rotating between Jordan West, Reilly Hennessey and Gage Gubrud.The Eagles averaged an FCS-best 353.3 passing yards last season, with West throwing for 3,002 yards and 30 touchdowns. Hennessey passed for 773 on 91 attempts but its the sophomore Gubrud, who attempted just 13 passes in 2015, who may be the one seeing the most playing time.It could be something in which we design some packages and might not be just one guy. ... The feeling is any package or even if we rotate every series, it really doesnt matter, Baldwin said. We have faith in all three of them.There is no question of who will be throwing the ball for Washington State.As a sophomore last season, Falk led the FBS in passing at 380.1 yards per game and directed the Cougars to their first bowl win since 2003. The All-Pac-12 first-team selection was fifth in the FBS with 4,561 passing yards, had 38 touchdowns and despite attempting 644 passes -- the most in the FBS since 2013 -- threw just eight interceptions.One of Falks least efficient performances of the season, however, came in the opener when the Cougars were upset 24-17 by Big Sky member Portland State. That was Washington States first loss to a Big Sky team since 1947.Eastern Washington had the eighth-worst defense in the FCS last year (476.4 per game) and despite being torched, Baldwin sees some advantages for it having to face his pass-happy offense in practice daily.There is going to be some of that recognition by the secondaries on both sides of the ball having seen some of the same type of things and formations, he said. But at the end of the day you have to go play. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '

MIAMI -- The first shot of the game was blocked by Utahs Rudy Gobert, which seemed appropriate. TJ Brodie Jersey .Defense carried the Jazz again.Gordon Hayward scored 25 points, Rodney Hood added 17 and the Jazz added to Miamis miserable start by beating the Heat 102-91 on Saturday night. The Jazz pulled away with a 15-0 run that started late in the second quarter and lasted midway through the third.Thats who we need to be, Utah coach Quin Snyder said. Thats what our strength is with Rudy, and our guys on the ball, and our wings with their size. Were a different type of defense, were more of a containment defense. But thats who we need to be and we need to make it hard on people.Hassan Whiteside had 15 points and 14 rebounds for Miami. James Johnson scored 15 points, Rodney McGruder added 14 and Josh Richardson had 12.The Heat missed 13 straight shots in that scoreless stretch, 10 of those to start the second half.Thats not who we are, thats not who weve been for the last month, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Definitely disappointing.Utah was without George Hill (right thumb) and Boris Diaw (right knee) again, then lost Derrick Favors to left knee soreness in the first quarter. But a night after holding Orlando to 74 points, and playing for fifth time on a seven-night trip, the Jazz limited Miami to 59 through three quarters -- building enough of a cushion to endure the Heat shooting 61 percent in the fourth.Its big with a couple of guys out, Hood said. Its been a long road trip. Weve played a lot of games in a short amount of days.Gobert had 12 points and 12 rebounds. Shelvin Mack scored 12, while former Heat forward Joe Johnson and Dante Exum each added 10.A huge road trip for us, Hayward said.Miami (2-6) has now dropped four straight and is off to its worst start since 2007-08.Weve just got to keep working, Whiteside said. Its not easy to win in this league.TIP-INSJazz: Hayward has been in five games this season, and scored at least 20 in all of them. He did miss a free throw for the first time all season, after making his first 31. ... Utah went 4-1 on its Eastern Conference trip. ... The Jazz won for the third time in their last 13 trips to Miami.Heat: Whiteside has at least 10 rebounds in all eight games this season. ... Miami was without Goran Dragic (sprained left ankle). ... Dion Waiters and Luke Babbitt both started, but their nights ended early. Babbitt played only the first 5:15 (going 0 for 3, all from 3-point range), and Waiters sat the final 19 minutes.FAVORS HURTINGFavors started 3 for 3, then was ruled out for the night. Knee soreness was an issue earlier this season, and he averaged nearly 34 minutes over Utahs last three games.ROTATION CHANGESHeat forward Josh McRoberts made his season debut, with four points in 13 minutes. Since coming to Miami, hes missed 112 of 172 regular-season games. And Derrick Williams, who played in just one of the first seven games, scored 11 points in 20 minutes.RINGS COMINGThe 2016 NBA Development League championship banner was unfurled before the Sioux Falls Skyforce -- Miamis affiliate -- played their home opener Saturday. Heat assistant coaches Dan Craig and Octavio de la Grana, who coached Sioux Falls last season, will get their rings before an upcoming Miami home game.UP NEXTJazz: Host Memphis on Monday. After opening with eight of 11 on the road, Utah gets a two-game homestand.Heat: Visit San Antonio on Monday. Its a one-game trip for Miami, wrapping up the season series with the Spurs. Miikka Kiprusoff Jersey .

EUGENE, Ore. -- This wasnt a world record for Ashton Eaton -- just a runaway win and another trip to the Olympics.Not bad for a decathlete dealing with an injury.On a tender hamstring and a quadriceps that has given him problems in recent weeks, the defending Olympic champion scored 8,750 points to beat Jeremy Taiwo by 325 at the U.S. Track and Field Trials on Sunday. Thats well off Eatons world record of 9,045, set at the world championships last summer in Beijing.But consider this: No one in the decathlete field for the Rio Olympics has a personal best that matches Eatons mark from the trials.Hes simply in a different stratosphere these days. The only person who can compete against him is, well, a computerized model of himself.Its almost like I make a digital version of myself, try to compete against that, Eaton said. I had this little, mini sub-goal of trying to score 9,000 every decathlon. It would be cool never to go back to [8,000].At the previous Olympic trials, also at Hayward Field, Eaton broke the decathlon world record for the first time. Eugene has long been a special place for him. Its where he and his wife, Canadian heptathlete Brianne Theisen-Eaton, met while attending the University of Oregon and rose to prominence.Eaton said he was shooting for the record, but his leg made it impossible.I had the same mindset, Eaton said. I would say the expectations personally and externally were a little bit different.The 28-year-old Eaton was in such control that his coach, Harry Marra, told him to run the final event, the 1,500, at a slower pace than normal. There was no sense in putting extra wear and tear on the leg with the Olympic decathlon in six weeks. Eaton still ran event No. 10 in 4 minutes, 25.15 seconds, which was one of the top times.This meet defines Ashton Eaton way more than his world-record performances. Those were great performances, Marra said. But he had so many obstacles physically. ... He did this with a bum leg.It was a leg his coach wasnt sure would hold up during the 400 on Saturday, but it did. Troy Brouwer Jersey. . It was a leg Eaton wasnt sure would be ready for the 110-meter hurdles on Sunday, but it was.Through this competition, Eaton learned a little bit more about himself. He doesnt have to be super aggressive all the time. Smooth works almost as well.The reviews were pretty good, Eaton said. As a decathlon, if you dont leave with something frustrated, then you should quit because it was perfect.In command, Eaton even had time to take in some other events. He watched Chaunte Lowe win the high jump by holding hold off teenager Vashti Cunningham, the daughter of longtime NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. He caught Jeffery Hendersons win in the mens long jump and Allyson Felixs blistering performance in the 400.Its nice to have a front-row seat as a decathlete on the field and get to see all that stuff, Eaton said. Those kinds of things are inspirational, and you try to learn from it. Sometimes, I try to pick up little things from the specialists.Taiwo had a solid performance to take second, while Zach Ziemek of Wisconsin wound up third. It was an event that was missing Trey Hardee, the 2012 Olympic silver medalist who didnt finish after he suffered a left hamstring injury on the first day.Eatons big plans now will be to squeeze in some rest before he and his wife head to Rio. There, Eaton has a chance to make a little history as he tries to defend his title. That hasnt been done in the decathlon since British star Daley Thompson won in 1980 and 84.That would be cool, Eaton said. Awesome company to be in, but there are really good competitors.Asked if he might chase after another world record in Rio, Eaton grinned.The Olympic Games are so much different from anything else, Eaton said. You dont even talk about world records, in a way. If its there at the very end, sure, Ill run to get it. Other than that, its event to event. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys CamoWholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '

LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St.Adam Scott will take a share of the lead in to the final round of the Honda Classic, but would have held a convincing advantage had it not been one problem-filled hole. Scott had raced in to a three-stroke advantage after carding six birdies in a eight-hole stretch around the turn, but saw his good work was undone with two wayward shots at the par-three 15th.Having dunked his opening tee shot in to the hazard and taken a penalty, Scott fired over the green from the drop zone and saw his ball trickle back in to the water. The former world No 1 found dry land with his fifth shot, but needed another two putts from 11 feet to run up a quadruple-bogey seven and temporarily hand the lead back to Sergio Garcia. Zach Britton Jersey.  Click on the video above to see Scotts struggles at the Bear Trap!Watch the Honda Classic final round on Sunday live on from 6pm on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: PGA Tour Schedule World Rankings Free HD Golf Game Golf live on Sky Sports 4 Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts ' ' '
