Russell facing two-year ban

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):Exciting West Indies all-rounder, Andre Russell, could face a doping ban after missing three doping tests within a 12-month period, media reports said yesterday.The 27-year-old Jamaican, a much-sought-after Twenty20 specialist, failed to make himself available for the tests, and under World Anti-Doping Agency rules this constitutes a positive finding.Once found guilty, Russell could be banned for up to two years.”We received notification of Russell’s violation about two weeks ago, and I’ve appointed a panel to hear his case,” Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission independent disciplinary panel chairman Kent Pantry was quoted as saying.The West Indies Cricket Board said it was aware of the situation.The globe-trotting Russell has turned out in almost every global domestic tournament over the last 12 months, playing in the Indian Premier League, the Caribbean Premier League, the South African Ram Slam, the Bangladesh Premier League and the Australian Big Bash.Only last month, he helped Islamabad United capture the inaugural Pakistan Super League title.Russell is currently with the West Indies squad in the United Arab Emirates where he is preparing for the Twenty20 World Cup later this month in India.Last week, he was named as a global ambassador for Nissan by the Japanese automaker.last_img read more


Cavs’ Derrick Rose has bone spur in ankle, happy to be back

Rose left the Cavs on Nov. 22 and only returned this week, Friday, Dec. 8, 2017. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)INDIANAPOLIS — Derrick Rose is ready to start playing basketball in Cleveland again — once he’s healthy.The oft-injured point guard acknowledged Friday he has a bone spur in his left ankle that contributed to his decision to leave the team Nov. 22.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases He declined to say where he was, what he did or whether he pondered retirement. Rose even sidestepped a question about a potential target date for his return.“I’m taking it one day at a time. That’s the only thing you can do as far as your sanity,” he said. “You’ll go crazy if you try to overthink it or think you’re going to have a starting day and it’s not there.”One thing that has changed: Rose’s mindset.He thanked his Cleveland teammates and general manager Koby Altman for their support, which he said helped make the decision to come back easier. Now it’s just about getting healthy.“I was just figuring things out, thinking about this and that,” Rose said. “But I’m here for my team. I’m here to win. And that’s one of the reasons why I came back.”If Rose works his way back into form, it will only make the hottest team in the NBA better.The Cavs (18-7) already have four-time MVP LeBron James and perennial All-Star Kevin Love in the starting lineup and acquired one of the NBA’s best young point guards, Isaiah Thomas, in an offseason trade from Boston.Cleveland still has Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert, each of whom played a key role in the Cavs’ championship run two years ago.They also added Dwayne Wade and Jae Crowder during the offseason.Right now, though, the Cavs are banged up. SBP to Fiba: Louder in ’23 Rose’s absence prompted some to speculate on his future plans and when he returned to the team earlier this week, some contended that the top overall draft pick in 2008 was only coming back to cash in on a lucrative contract.“It’s not about that. I’ve saved up enough money,” Rose said. “If I wanted to leave, I would have left. Like I said, coming back here, starting with rehab that’s my first step. Keeping it simple and just giving my team support and then I’ll see what I see off the court.”The Central Division leaders and three-time defending Eastern Conference champs have won 13 in a row and can break the franchise record with a road win over the surprising Pacers (14-11) on Friday night.Cleveland won all six games while Rose was gone.But what exactly Rose did during his absence, or when he could be back in uniform, remains unclear.ADVERTISEMENT In his first public comments since ending an almost two-week hiatus, Rose told reporters that he had apologized to his teammates, was content with the Cavaliers and insisted he couldn’t wait to get back on the court.“I was just figuring things out, thinking about this and that,” Rose said before the Cavs’ morning shootaround in Indianapolis. “But I’m here for my team. I’m here to win. And that’s one of the reasons why I came back.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkBefore his departure, Rose had been slowed for weeks by an ankle injury.

No, no. Not at all,” Rose said when asked about his potential role. “I’ll be able to hoop. That’s all I want to do: Hoop and win. I don’t care about all the stuff that comes with it.

Look no further than dyestatcal.com, a prominent track and field Web site, which is offering a free fantasy sports league based on the performances of the top boys and girls distance runners in the state. “If there’s one thing kids and fans keep asking us for, it’s to start fantasy leagues,” Dyestatcal editor Rich Gonzalez said. “They like being involved in contests and seem especially excited as this one centers around their peers.” In order to join, persons must choose a team of seven prep distance runners, with the quality of the runners separated into tiers. Each team must have two elite runners from tier one, two runners from tier two, two runners from tier three, and one at-large runner from tier four. The local “tier one” runners on the boys’ side are Michael Cybulski (Royal of Simi Valley) and Cory Primm (Westlake), while Shannon Murakami (Saugus) and Anna Sperry (Simi Valley) both received the distinction on the girls’ side. The scoring is complex, and it is described in detail on the site. The site promises to update the results on weekly basis, while the prize for first place includes a pair of adidas running shoes. It does not yet include a format for other track and field events, but promises to do so as the concept becomes more popular. -Kevin Connelly Royal runners commit to UCLA Bruins SS named week’s Pac-10 player Your fantasy come true All-Star basketball game set for April 21 The 2007 valley sports foundation senior All-Star basketball game is set for Saturday, April 21 at Cal State Northridge.

Iconic holiday parade canceled

first_imgHOLLYWOOD – Go ahead, pout and cry. Santa Claus won’t be coming to town. After 75 years featuring the best Tinseltown had to offer, the Hollywood Christmas Parade has been canceled. Organizers said dwindling attendance, poor sponsor support and a dearth of A-list talent made the $1 million annual effort too much of a financial strain on the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. “That sucks,” said Abby Jaime, 19, of Pico Rivera outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, upon hearing the news. Jaime has attended several of the annual parades with her family and watched it on television when she couldn’t attend. “I loved the (marching) bands,” Jaime said. “And seeing all the celebrities, the ambiance.” Held the first Sunday after Thanksgiving, the parade was created in 1928 to draw Los Angeles residents to the Hollywood area during the holiday shopping season. In the parade’s heyday, hundreds of thousands of fans came out to see golden era stars such as Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Bob Hope and Mary Pickford serve as grand marshals. Through the years, millions more watched on local and national television broadcasts. Over the past decade, organizers said, the parade lost money about half the time as the chamber struggled to secure advertising dollars and a television contract needed to guarantee celebrity participation. “We’ve been looking to save this parade for 10 years,” said Leron Gubler, Hollywood chamber president and CEO. “The outlook has looked shaky all that time. We’ve explored every option possible. We always had hoped to turn it around. For us, it’s very sad to have to make this announcement.” rick.coca@dailynews.com (818) 713-3329last_img read more


JUDGE ORDERS PROBATION REPORT AFTER PUNCH-UP AT ‘THE GRILL’ OVER ‘GAY’ SHIRT

first_imgONE man suffered a broken jaw and another man bruising after a punch-up in a Co Donegal nightclub sparked by homophobic comments about a shirt, a court has heard.Two men from the county appeared at Letterkenny District Court, each contesting assault charges arising out of an incident on the night of August 15, 2012.A Garda investigation was launched when Michael McDevitt, Drury Road, Kerrykeel, made a formal complaint of assault to officers at Letterkenny on August 24, 2012. He had suffered a serious blow in the incident nine days earlier and was later transferred from Letterkenny General Hospital to Altnagelvin in Derry where he underwent surgery to repair a broken jaw.A metal plate and six bolts had to be inserted into his jaw.Adam O’Donnell, a 22-year-old apprentice toolmaker from Castlewray, Letterkenny, later admitted punching McDevitt, but insisted it was in self defence, and only to protect his younger brother Mark who had been accosted by McDevitt who had made references to his clothes and his “gay shirt.”After hearing evidence from both men, Judge Paul Kelly convicted McDevitt of disorderly conduct in a public place, relating to his comments to Mark O’Donnell.He also convicted both McDevitt and Adam O’Donnell on assault charges.Inspector Michael Harrison said he felt “sad to have to prosecute this case” of two young men with no previous convictions.The inspector said that on the evidence given to the court it was clear that Adam O’Donnell saw that his brother was frightened and he went to look after him.Michael McDevitt was throwing insults at the young man Mark, he said, and his brother went over and intervened and an altercation took place.Judge Paul Kelly agreed. He said the disorder in a public place – the insults to Mark O’Donnell – was proved.He said there was some type of lunge by McDevitt on Adam O’Donnell in which he received a minor injury. Adam had retaliated resulting in life-changing injuries for Mr McDevitt, a 20-year-old student who worked as a kitchen porter at the Rathmullan House Hotel.“It’s a sad state of affairs when two very young men end up before the courts in a most unsavoury incident,” said Judge Kelly.He said the incident was started by McDevitt “who must have been in a state of considerable intoxication” having consumed two pints of bulmers and a half a bottle of vodka before going to The Grill and then six vodkas and two Jagemeisters on the premises.He said McDevitt’s claim that he “wasn’t too bad” was “totally lacking in any credibility.”Judge Kelly said: “He was extremely intoxicated and he couldn’t be anything other than extremely intoxicated.“He subjected Mark O’Donnell to extremely offensive insults and his brother Adam had intervened. The incident escalated almost instantly and I am satisfied they struck each other.”The judge said he was all too aware of fatalities occurring where a single blow has been thrown.“Young men in particular seem to have no regard for how a single blow can have catastrophic consequences,” said Judge Kelly.The judge said it was his view that long term implications for their future should be avoided where possible.He asked for probation service reports before passing sentence.The case was adjourned.JUDGE ORDERS PROBATION REPORT AFTER PUNCH-UP AT ‘THE GRILL’ OVER ‘GAY’ SHIRT was last modified: April 3rd, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:assaultDistrict Courtgay shirtKERRYKEELletterkennyMichael McDevittRathmullanrowThe Grilllast_img read more

PLAYERS NEED TO DELIVER FOR THE MANAGER, SAYS MURPHY

first_imgDONEGAL GAA FANS believe the appointment of Jim McGuinness as Donegal chief will bring instant results, but captain Michael Murphy knows there is only so much a manager can do.“Any time a new management team comes in, it stirs people and they’re intrigued as to what’s on offer,” Murphy tells The Irish News.“At this time of year, people are curious to see who has been called into the panel and what changes are happening. Knowing Jim and the management team from the under 21s, they’ll bring that level of professionalism and they’ll have plenty of work done already. “But listen, and I keep saying this, it’s really going to be down to the players and how we buy into this. Just looking at the panel, there’s a nice blend of youth and experience there.“Hopefully when we get back into it, everyone will be chomping at the bit – I think every man is looking forward to it and putting in the hard work that has to be done.”PLAYERS NEED TO DELIVER FOR THE MANAGER, SAYS MURPHY was last modified: December 23rd, 2010 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more


Carney saves day for Ducks with late goal

first_img Carney scored with 2:26 left in the game to break a 3-3 tie and give the Ducks (2-1-1) their first home victory of the season. The Ducks fended off a late Blue Jackets (1-4-0) flurry in the final minute to preserve the victory. Ducks goaltender Jean-Sebastian Giguere made 19 saves in goal to earn the victory. Joffery Lupul’s second goal of the night, the streak-ending power play goal with 12:31 left in the game, gave the Ducks a 3-2 lead. The Mighty Ducks finally realized the power play was their friend. So was hard work and focus. The Ducks scored their first power play goal in three games on Friday, but still needed a save from Keith Carney to escape with a 4-3 victory over the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets in front of an announced 12,930 at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Even though Lupul found the net on the man-advantage, it was a hard-earned goal. Carney sent in a hard shot from the point that Leclaire saved. Lupul got the rebound at the near-side goal mouth and attempted to slot it past Leclaire, who saved it. Lupul again collected the rebound and caromed it off the foot of Columbus defenseman Adam Foote into the net. All of Lupul’s work almost went for naught as Hrdina scored with 4:07 left in the game to tie the score. The Blue Jackets came into the game with a league-low seven goals scored, but the Ducks still managed to blow a two-goal lead. They were penalized 12 times, which came back to hurt them in the third period. Brian Berard scored on the power play with 16:46 left in the third period to tie the score at 2-2 and Hrdina’s game-tying goal also came on the power play. Lupul scored with 4:17 left in the second period to give the Ducks a 2-0 lead. He scored off of a rebounded save by Leclaire. Leclaire stopped a hard shot by Ryan Getzlaf and the puck bounced to Lupul, who netted it over a pile of defenders attempting to clear the puck. center_img Getzlaf scored the first goal with 12:20 left in the second period on a feed from Jonathan Hedstrom that went across the crease from the near-side. Getzlaf collected the puck and backhanded it over Leclaire and into the net. Hrdina halved the Ducks’ lead with a goal with 2:36 left in the second period. Even though the Ducks scored a power play goal, they have still only scored three power play goals on the season. Conversely, they have given up four power play goals in 30 opportunities. DUCKS NOTES: Rookie Corey Perry had an assist on Lupul’s goal, extending his club record for most consecutive games with a point to begin his career … Defenseman Jason Marshall took a puck to the face 2:27 into the game and did not return. He was diagnosed with a fracture and is question for Sunday’s game at Minnesota. In other games: Flyers 6, Penguins 5: Mike Rathje scored 3:17 into overtime to lead Philadelphia. Maxime Talbot’s fluke goal with 8:03 completed Pittsburgh’s rally from a four-goal deficit, but the Penguins couldn’t pull out their first victory in their fourth consecutive overtime game. Canucks 5, Wild 3 : Richard Park had the go-ahead goal and two assists against his old team to lead Vancouver. On an assist from new linemate Markus Naslund, Park fired an uncontested wrist shot from the back of the left circle that got past goalie Dwayne Roloson early in the third period. Maple Leafs 9, Thrashers 1 : Jeff O’Neill scored a goal in each period for his second hat trick against visiting Atlanta in two seasons and routed rookie goalie Michael Garnett. Blackhawks 3, Avalanche 2, SO : Nikolai Khabibulin played his best game in goal since signing with Chicago, and visiting Chicago scored on all three chances in a shootout to beat Colorado.
