Smile Josh Gordon emerging as a superstar receiver, Carson Palmer and the Cardinals passing
Posted by: jokergreen0220 - 06-14-2018, 04:36 AM - Forum: Humor - No Replies

Josh Gordon emerging as a superstar receiver, Carson Palmer and the Cardinals passing attack, Nick Foles rare ratio, more Manning greatness; also Newton, Brady, Gronkowski, Jeffery, Decker and more in Scott Cullens 50 Points on NFL Week 13. Miami Dolphins Jerseys . 1. Lions WR Calvin Johnson (6 REC, 101 YDS, 1 TD, 10 targets) leads receivers with 1,299 yards and 12 touchdowns, though his 118.1 receiving yards per game ranks second behind Clevelands Josh Gordon. Gordon (10 REC, 261 YDS, 2 TD, 15 targets) is emerging as a superstar, putting up huge numbers even with Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden at quarterback. 2. Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (24-for-41, 302 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble) had his third consecutive 300-yard passing game, a feat he only accomplished once before -- last November with Oakland. This year, its happening for a team that is in playoff contention and Palmer is doing his part to contribute to that success. The emergence of second-year Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (5 REC, 99 YDS, 1 TD, 10 targets) is playing a big part in Palmers hot streak. Floyd has 18 catches (28 targets) for 396 yards in the last three weeks. During the same period, Larry Fitzgerald has 16 catches (28 targets) for 185 yards, though Fitzgerald has four touchdowns compared to Floyds two. 3. Eagles QB Nick Foles (21-for-34, 237 YDS, 3 TD, 0 INT) is up to 19 touchdown passes without an interception, prompting head coach Chip Kelly to annoint him the starter for the next 1,000 years. No one in the modern era has come close to finishing a season with zero interceptions and this many TD passes. The best modern era single-season TD-INT ratio with two or fewer interceptions, in at least 10 games, belongs to Damon Huard, who had 11 touchdowns and one interception for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2006. 4. Broncos QB Peyton Manning (22-for-35, 403 YDS, 5 TD, 2 INT) is making a mockery of the MVP race. With 41 touchdown passes, Manning has a chance to challenge Tom Bradys record 50 touchdown passes, set in 2007 (which is one more than Manning had for Indianapolis in 2004). 5. Panthers QB Cam Newton (18-for-29, 263 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT; 68 YDS, 1 TD, 5 carries) is tied for ninth among quarterbacks with 19 touchdown passes, but hes been involved in 25 total touchdowns (rushing for six), which ranks fourth, behind Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford. 6. Since throwing for 116 yards in Week Eight against Miami, Patriots QB Tom Brady (29-for-41, 371 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT) has resumed his place as one of the most productive quarterbacks in the game, passing for 1,443 yards and 10 touchdowns, with two interceptions, in the last four games. 7. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (6 REC, 127 YDS, 1 TD, 12 targets) has 560 receiving yards in six games since returning to the lineup, good enough for 10th among tight ends this season. Gronks 93.3 yards per game leads them all, ahead of Jimmy Grahams 82.3 yards per game. For all the talk about how New England needed rookies or newcomer Danny Amendola to step up in the passing game, Patriots WR Julian Edelman (9 REC, 101 YDS, 12 targets) has been the leader of the group, catching 70 passes for 711 yards and four touchdowns, all of which lead (or, in the case of TDs, tie for the lead) the team. 8. Seattles defence locked down Saints QB Drew Brees (23-for-38, 147 YDS, 1 TD), who threw for his fewest yards in a game since December, 2006. 9. Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (12 REC, 249 YDS, 2 TD, 15 targets) is emerging as a star in his second season, and has more receiving yards than Brandon Marshall (1,109 to 990) and has added 115 rushing yards on 14 attempts. 10. Broncos WR Eric Decker (8 REC, 174 YDS, 4 TD, 12 targets), who would have been the third Denver receiver picked in most drafts, now ranks 11th in receiving yards among wide receivers. 11. Raiders WR Andre Holmes (7 REC, 136 YDS, 11 targets) had three catches for 65 yards all season before he was turned loose against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, taking advantage of Denarius Moores injury to establish that he could be a bona fide threat. Holmes is 6-foot-5, out of Hillsdale College, and spent the last couple seasons on the fringes of the Dallas Cowboys roster, dressing for seven games in 2012. 12. Falcons WR Roddy White (10 REC, 143 YDS, 14 targets) may finally -- finally -- be over the high-ankle sprain that has plagued him all year. Sundays breakout was the first time all year that White had more than five catches or 50 yards receiving. 13. Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (211 YDS, 35 carries) is making a second-half charge up the rushing list, with 357 rushing yards in the last two weeks. His 67 carries the last two weeks is his most in back-to-back games, beating the 59 carries he had in the last two weeks of last season, when he was making a push to catch Eric Dickersons single-season rushing record. 14. Lions QB Matthew Stafford (22-for-35, 330 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble) accumulates a lot of yards, sometimes because hes making up for deficits created by turnovers, but Peyton Manning is the only one with more passing yards than Staffords 3,825 and Manning (41) and Drew Brees (29) are the only ones with more touchdown passes than Staffords 27. 15. Lions RB Reggie Bush (182 YDS, 1 TD, 1 fumble, 25 touches) is up to 1,302 yards from scrimmage this season, which ranks fifth. On a per-game basis, Bushs 118.4 yards per game ranks third among runners. Joique Bell (128 YDS, 1 TD, 22 touches), Bushs backup, ranks 20th in yards from scrimmage, with 813. 16. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (22-for-30, 310 YDS, 3 TD) has thrown multiple touchdown passes in six straight games, a span during which he has 14 touchdowns and two interceptions. 17.Bears RB Matt Forte (151 YDS, 25 touches) ranks third in yards from scrimmage with 1,416 and is on pace to beat his career-high of 1,715 yards from scrimmage, set in his rookie season, 2008. Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (115 YDS, 24 touches) continues to lead in yards from scrimmage this season, with 1,523, 60 yards ahead of Kansas City RB Jamaal Charles (120 YDS, 1 TD, 21 touches). 18. Steelers RB LeVeon Bell (136 YDS, 1 TD, 23 touches) had a strong game against Baltimore on Thanksgiving before suffering a concussion as he nearly scored his second touchdown of the game. Bell hopes to get back in the lineup, but if he cant, Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones are next on the depth chart. Dwyer and Jones havent played much, though, combining for a total of 14 touches in the last three games. 19. Panthers TE Greg Olsen (5 REC, 85 YDS) has done it quietly, but ranks seventh among tight ends with 611 receiving yards this season. Since the start of last season, Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez are the only tight ends with more receiving yards than Olsen. 20. Since 2007, Texans WR Andre Johnson (8 REC, 121 YDS, 9 targets) leads the NFL with 94.7 receiving yards per game, six yards per game ahead of Detroits Calvin Johnson. 21. Chiefs QB Alex Smith (26-for-42, 293 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT; 46 YDS, 4 carries) cant compare to Peyton Manning, but hes been productive enough, throwing for 817 yards and seven touchdowns with two interceptions in the last three weeks -- all Chiefs losses. Smith also completed passes to 11 different receivers against Denver Sunday. 22. Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (28-for-43, 331 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT) passed for a season-high 331 yards against the Jets and it was the first time in his career that he threw for 300 yards and multiple touchdowns in the same game. 23. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (19-for-28, 275 YDS, 1 TD) has thrown for 510 yards and four touchdowns, with zero interceptions, in the last two weeks. Slight progress from a generally miserable passing season. 24. Bears QB Josh McCown (23-for-36, 355 YDS, 2 TD) passed for his most yards in a game since October, 2005, when he had back-to-back games with more than 380 yards passing for the Arizona Cardinals. McCown has passed for 707 yards and four touchdowns in the last two games. 25. There was some discussion among TSN.ca staffers about who should be the offensive rookie of the year and I made sure to mention Chargers WR Keenan Allen (8 REC, 106 YDS, 1 fumble, 10 targets), the third-round pick who now has 843 receiving yards on the season, going over 100 yards in five of his last eight games played. 26. Jaguars WR Ace Sanders (8 REC, 67 YDS, 11 targets) is becoming an active part of the Jacksonville passing game. Over the last three weeks, he has 20 catches (26 targets) for 189 yards and, naturally since he plays for the Jaguars, no touchdowns. 27. Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (9 REC, 127 YDS, 1 TD, 15 targets) had a season-high 127 receiving yards against the Jets and scored his first touchdown since Week Three, but hes been quietly productive this season. Hes averaging 67.0 receiving yards per game, which is right on track with last years 67.7 yards per game that led to a career-high 1,083 receiving yards. 28. Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (92 YDS, 19 touches) gets a lot of grief for his inconsistency, but 907 yards from scrimmage this season ranks 15th among running backs. 29. Titans RB Chris Johnson (101 YDS, 1 TD, 24 touches) went over 100 yards from scrimmage for the third time this season. Hes over 1,000 yards from scrimmage (1,042), but is on pace for a career-low in that category. 30. Texans RB Ben Tate (102 YDS, 3 TD, 22 carries) rushed for more than 100 yards for the first time since November, 2011 against Cleveland. With Arian Foster out, there is still a real opportunity for Tate to finish the year strong as the Texans lead back. 31. Falcons RB Steven Jackson (84 YDS, 2 TD, 23 carries) had his most productive game of the season Sunday, against the Bills in Toronto, which says something about how this year has gone for him, but Jackson does have 163 yards from scrimmage, with three touchdowns, in the last two weeks. 32. Ravens RB Ray Rice (70 YDS, 18 touches) had a season-high 38 receiving yards against Pittsburgh, yet it was still only the fifth time all season that he gained at least 70 yards from scrimmage. 33. Browns RB Willis McGahee (71 YDS, 1 TD, 16 touches) had his most productive game since rushing for 72 yards and a touchdown (on 26 carries) against Buffalo in Week Five. Cleveland thought that McGahee would be a suitable replacement for Trent Richardson and, turns out, they were right, but both have struggled this season. 34. Bills RB C.J. Spiller (157 YDS, 1 TD, 17 touches) delivered his most productive game of the season, yet Fred Jackson (78 YDS, 2 TD, 15 touches) was still eminently valuable for fantasy purposes. With more touches and more touchdowns, Jackson has been the more valuable of Buffalos running back duo, something that wasnt forecasted when Spiller was being talked about as a first-round fantasy pick. 35. With Stevan Ridley on the sidelines, Patriots RB Shane Vereen (75 YDS, 15 touches) made the most of the opportunity, while LeGarrette Blount (44 YDS, 1 TD, 12 carries) had a chance to get some regular work. Of course, fantasy owners note that James Develin (16 YDS, 1 TD, 3 touches) had the first two carries of his career, including New Englands lone touchdown run. 36. Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (92 YDs, 1 TD, 1 fumble, 20 carries) and Giovani Bernard (66 YDS, 15 touches) continue to be a productive tandem, though BJGE gets a lot of touches for the less efficient runner. 37. Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (85 YDS, 23 touches) got a new chance with Daniel Thomas injured and made the most of it, with a productive game following a three-game stretch during which he accumulated 95 yards from scrimmage. 38. Cardinals RB Rashard Mendenhall (76 YDS, 18 carries) had season-highs in rushing yards and carries at Philadelphia, taking advantage of the opportunity presented when rookie Andre Ellington was sidelined with a knee injury. 39. Colts RB Donald Brown (64 YDS, 16 touches) has worked his way ahead of Trent Richardson in the Indianapolis backfield. Not a huge accomplishment, given Richardsons struggles, but Brown is becoming a viable option at FLEX. 40. Broncos RB Montee Ball (117 YDS, 13 carries) made the most of additional carries, while Knowshon Moreno (90 YDS, 1 TD, 19 touches) was still productive against the Chiefs. 41. Jets RB Chris Ivory (73 YDS, 13 touches) continues to hold the edge on Bilal Powell (59 YDS, 10 touches) in the New York backfield. The closeness of the competition, however, makes it difficult to count on much from either one from week to week. 42. Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (42 YDS, 16 touches) got a good opportunity with DeAngelo Williams hurt, but it was Mike Tolbert (89 YDS, 12 touches) who took advantage of the additional touches. 43. Eagles rookie TE Zach Ertz (5 REC, 68 YDS, 2 TD, 6 targets), a second-round pick, had the best game of his career to this point and while 342 yards and three touchdowns doesnt account for much this season, hes starting to takeo n a bigger role in the Eagles offence and those numbers should continue to rise with strong quarterback play. 44. Vikings QB Christian Ponder (3-for-8, 40 YDS) left Sundays win over Chicago with a concussion; Matt Cassel (20-for-33, 243 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT) was decent in relief, which helped WR Greg Jennings (7 REC, 78 YDS, 1 TD, 9 targets), who went over 70 yards receiving for only the third time this season. 45. Browns QB Brandon Weeden (24-for-40, 370 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble) passed for a career-high 370 yards and three touchdowns against Jacksonville, reaping the rewards of Josh Gordons breakout. 46. Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (94 YDS, 13 touches) had 46 yards from scrimmage in Week 12, a career-high, then busted out against the Raiders for the best day of his career, only to end up tearing his posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in his knee, ending his season. DeMarco Murray (102 YDS, 3 TD, 22 touches) may have to handle more touches with Dunbar out, but Philip Tanner and Joseph Randle will compete for playing time in a reserve role. 47. Packers RB Eddie Lacy (39 YDS, 15 touches) is finding it more difficult to run when defences dont have to respect the Green Bay passing game. The 39 yards from scrimmage against Detroit was Lacys fewest in a game this season, aside from Week Two, when he suffered a concussion on his first carry. 48. Packers QB Matt Flynn (10-for-20, 139 YDS, 0 TD, 1 INT, 2 fumbles) has done quite the job of ensuring that his Game 16 performance in 2011 (31-for-44, 480 YDS, 6 TD, 1 INT in 45-41 win vs. Detroit) will be viewed as nothing more than a fluke. Hes completed 58.9% of his passes this season for 603 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions, good enough to be one of 32 backups in the league, but nothing to suggest that hes remotely ready for a starting job. 49. Jets QB Geno Smith (4-for-10, 29 YDS, 1 INT) continued to struggle and was replaced by Matt Simms (9-for-18, 79 YDS, 1 TD, 1 fumble). The decline in Smiths play over the last four weeks has dramatically altered the Jets playoff hopes, and not for the better. 50. Defensive players with productive games: Dolphins DE Olivier Vernon (10 tackles, 2.5 sacks); Raiders OLB Nick Roach (11 tackles, 2 sacks); Packers CB Sam Shields (8 tackles, 1 INT, 1 PD); Steelers OLB Jason Worilds (10 tackles, 2 sacks); Jaguars S Johnathan Cyprien (10 tackles, 1 sack); Colts ILB Jerrell Freeman (9 tackles, 1 INT); Bears DE Julius Peppers (8 tackles, 2.5 sacks); Vikings OLB Chad Greenway (10 tackles, 1 sack, 2 TFL); Jets FS Dawan Landry (14 tackles); ILB David Harris (13 tackles, 1 TFL); Cardinals OLB Karlos Dansby (9 tackles, 2 sacks); Cardinals DE Matt Shaughnessy (7 tackles, 1 sack, 3 TFL); Eagles MLB DeMeco Ryans (9 tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 1 PD); Eagles FS Nate Allen (8 tackles, 1 INT); Buccaneers OLB Lavonte David (9 tackles, 1 INT, 1 TFL); Bills ILB Kiko Alonso (13 tackles, 1 PD); CB Leodis McKelvin (10 tackles, 3 PD); Rams DT Michael Brockers (7 tackles, 2 sacks); Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict (13 tackles), Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (10 tackles, 1 sack); Chargers FS Eric Weddle (7 tackles, 1 INT, 1 FR, 1 TFL); Saints MLB Curtis Lofton (12 tackles, 2 TFL) Scott Cullen can be reached at Scott.Cullen@bellmedia.ca and followed on Twitter at http://twitter.com/tsnscottcullen.

Smile The Toronto Blue Jays will turn to righty Dustin McGowan tonight against Corey Kluber
Posted by: jokergreen0220 - 06-14-2018, 04:34 AM - Forum: Humor - No Replies

The Toronto Blue Jays will turn to righty Dustin McGowan tonight against Corey Kluber and the Cleveland Indians. Gerard Pique Jersey . McGowan has won his last two decisions and is 2-1 on the year with a 4.63 ERA. He did not get a decision his last time out, though, despite a decent effort against the Los Angeles Angels that saw him allow two runs in five innings of his teams 4-3 loss. "I got through it," McGowan said. "But I didnt have my slider, so luckily the changeup got me through. It was one of those games where you give it everything you can and see what happens." McGowan has never beaten the Indians, going 0-2 with an 11.05 ERA in four games (3 starts). Cleveland right-hander Kluber lost to the Blue Jays back on April 6. Since then, though, hes been one of the best pitchers in baseball. Kluber looks for another strong start on tonight as the Indians continue a three-game set with the Blue Jays. Since surrendering five runs in 6 2/3 innings in that loss to the Blue Jays, Kluber has gone 2-1 with a 1.91 ERA and 38 strikeouts in four starts since. He defeated the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday, as he limited them to a pair of runs and nine hits in 6 2/3 innings to run his record to 3-3, while lowering his ERA to 3.48. "Ive felt good out there recently, so I was trying to not really change anything," Kluber said. "Just go out there and continue to pound the strike zone and attack guys." Cleveland lost for the ninth time in 11 road tries on Tuesday, as Juan Francisco homered and had two RBI to help Toronto to a 5-4 win. Adam Lind also knocked in two and Melky Cabrera added the other RBI for the Blue Jays, who have won two straight. Toronto starter R.A. Dickey (4-3) scattered four hits over six-plus innings, allowing four runs -- two earned -- with six strikeouts. Casey Janssen pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his first save of the season. "The good news is I feel like Im pounding the zone and pitching to contact," said Dickey. "I had a great knuckleball, but I am not making it easy on myself or my team in the later innings." The Blue Jays have homered in 17 of their 19 home games this season. Nick Swisher drove in a pair for Cleveland, which saw starter Justin Masterson (2-2) take the loss after surrendering five runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings. "First time through the order went really well," said Indians manager Terry Francona of Masterson. "He got a couple balls up that they stayed on pretty well. We just couldnt get one big hit." Cleveland had won five of six overall entering this series. Toronto took two of three from the Tribe earlier in the year. Dani Carvajal Jersey . Buffalos defensive co-ordinator had his second interview with Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner on Tuesday night, a person familiar with the Browns plans told The Associated Press.

Posted by: jokergreen0220 - 06-14-2018, 04:32 AM - Forum: Humor - No Replies

LONDON - Max Verstappen is set to become the youngest ever driver in Formula One after Toro Rosso announced that the 16-year-old Dutchman will join the team next season. Thiago Silva Jersey . Verstappen has been racing in the Formula 3 European Championship this year, winning eight of 27 races, and joined the Red Bull Junior Team this month. Toro Rosso, the sister team of Red Bull, said Monday that Verstappen will race alongside Daniil Kvyat in 2015, replacing Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne. "Ever since I was 7 years old, Formula 1 has been my career goal, so this opportunity is truly a dream come true," Verstappen said in a statement. The teenager, who will turn 17 next month, is the son of former F1 driver Jos Verstappen. He would shatter the record for the youngest person to drive in F1, with Jaime Alguersuari holding the current mark of 19 years, 125 days. The 20-year-old Kvyat is the youngest driver on this years F1 grid. "We consider Max to be one of the most skilled young drivers of the new generation and we believe he has the necessary maturity and mental strength to take on this challenge successfully," Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost said. "This year he has already demonstrated how well he can cope under difficult conditions. ... Bearing in mind that Scuderia Toro Rosso was created with the aim of bringing young talent from the Red Bull Junior Team into Formula 1 and to educate them, it will now be up to us to provide Max with a competitive car, which will enable him to have the best possible start to his Formula 1 career." Fred Brazil Jersey . Left back Armero opened the scoring in the fifth minute when his deflected shot rolled past Greece goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis.

Smile DETROIT -- Justin Verlander had no way of knowing what Detroits offence was about to
Posted by: jokergreen0220 - 06-14-2018, 04:28 AM - Forum: Humor - No Replies

DETROIT -- Justin Verlander had no way of knowing what Detroits offence was about to do, so when he gave up five runs in the first inning, his goal was simply to prevent more scoring and hope for the best. Custom Miami Dolphins Jerseys . "That first innings tough, but as a starting pitcher, you have to have the ability to turn the page," Verlander said. "Its a nice feeling when youre able to go out there and keep your team in the game, when at other times, maybe when I was younger, it turns into a two-inning or three-inning and eight-run affair." Verlander settled down after his terrible first inning, and the Tigers rallied in emphatic fashion for a 14-5 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. The Dodgers managed only one hit off Verlander after the first, and Detroit quickly tied it with five runs in the second. The Tigers added two runs in the third and four in the fourth to pull away. Miguel Cabrera was one of five Detroit players with three hits. Verlander (8-7) allowed five runs and five hits in six innings. He struck out four and walked two. Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-5) allowed seven runs and 10 hits in 2 1-3 innings. "I felt like I really let my team down," Ryu said through a translator. "We had five runs in the first inning off a great pitcher, and I gave the lead away. Thats the worst part of tonight." Juan Uribe hit a two-run homer for the Dodgers in the first, but Verlander retired 13 in a row after that. The Tigers 14 runs set a season high, as did their 20 hits. Detroit managed its offensive outburst without a single homer, but broke through for eight hits in the second against Ryu. Torii Hunter led off with a double -- he was initially ruled out at second after a nice throw from right fielder Yasiel Puig, but the call was overturned on replay. "Thats how replay has changed the game," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "It probably changes the entire inning, really. They have one out and nobody on as opposed to a runner on second, no outs." Nick Castellanos, Alex Avila, Eugenio Suarez and Rajai Davis followed with consecutive singles, and Avila scored on a wild pitch to make it 5-3. Ian Kinsler added an RBI single with one out, and Cabrera followed with one of his own to tie it. "It shows what were capable of," Avila said. "Its a good team win as far as being able to come back, and Justin going out there and throwing up zeros after the first inning. That was a very good win for us." Davis hit an RBI single in the third to chase Ryu, and Austin Jackson followed with a sacrifice fly for a 7-5 lead. What once looked like a Los Angeles rout turned into a blowout for Detroit in the fourth, when the first six Tigers reached base against reliever Jamey Wright. Castellanos singled home a run, and a bases-loaded walk by Avila forced in another. Suarezs RBI single made it 10-5. Davis added a sacrifice fly, and in the fifth, J.D. Martinez tripled and scored on Hunters single. Detroit scored two more runs in the seventh. Cabrera hit an RBI triple, reaching third when Puigs throw from the wall in right-centre sailed over two cutoff men. Hunter drove Cabrera home with a single. Verlanders ERA increased to 4.84, but he won his 12th straight regular-season decision against a National League team. Martinez, Hunter, Castellanos and Davis also had three hits apiece for the Tigers. Los Angeles opened the scoring on a two-run double by Adrian Gonzalez, and Matt Kemp added an RBI single to make it 3-0. Uribes homer was his fifth of the year. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was ejected in the sixth. NOTES: Kemp had three hits for the Dodgers. ... The Tigers were without DH Victor Martinez, who is dealing with a back issue. ... Andre Ethier hit into a rare 7-5 forceout in the sixth when his blooper to left dropped barely in front of Davis. The runners at first and second couldnt be sure if Davis would catch it or not. ...

Smile OTTAWA -- Call it the best-case scenario for the Ottawa Fury FC. [url=http://www.socc

OTTAWA -- Call it the best-case scenario for the Ottawa Fury FC. Danny Rose Jersey . The young franchise played to a 0-0 draw Wednesday night against FC Edmonton at Keith Harris Stadium in the first leg of the Amway Canadian Championship. Considering this was just the third game in franchise history for the Fury, head coach Marc Dos Santos was pleased with the draw. "This is four times 45 minutes and now were at halftime of the game," said Dos Santos of the series. "If you asked me what would be the best score after leg one I would tell you I want to win 5-0. But the reality is, if you do tie, at least tie 0-0 at home." The two teams, who compete in the North American Soccer League, will meet next Wednesday in Edmonton for the final game of the home-and-home series. The winner, the team that scores the greater aggregate of goals over the two matches, will secure the fourth semi-final place and join the three Canadian MLS clubs, Montreal Impact, Toronto FC and Vancouver Whitecaps in the next round. Should the two teams end in a draw next week the Fury would earn the tiebreaker as visiting goals are more valuable. However, if next weeks game is scoreless the two would play extra time and then go to penalty kicks to determine a winner. "We control our own destiny now," said Edmontons Ritchie Jones. "Were pretty good at home and teams usually dont like to play us at home." The Fury gave Edmonton all it could handle and while he gave full marks to Ottawa for its performance, Edmonton head coach Colin Miller believes his team should win next week. "With the greatest respect to Ottawa we are the favourites," said Miller. "Were a five year franchise now and theyre a new franchise. Were at home and were very difficult to beat at home. I think if we play the way were playing now I think well be a match for anyone in the NESL. Its in our hands." Both teams had good chances in the early going of the second half, but both goalkeepers seemed up to the challenge. Ottawa keeper Devala Gorrick made the save of the night in injury time on Sadi Jalali as Edmonton broke through for a wide-open chance. "Thats one of those shots I train for everyday," said Gorrick. "Luckily I stayed focused because it was cold and I didnt have to do throughout the second half, but I saw the balls and then things slowed down for me and my training kicked in and I was able to stay big and get a body behind it." Minutes earlier, Edmonton failed to take advantage of a direct kick as Richie Ryan made a great defensive play to block the kick. "It was important for us to keep a clean sheet," said Ryan. "It was more for confidence as were confident that we can go and score next week in Edmonton." Ritchie Jones had a good chance at the 51st minute, but Gorrick made an easy save to keep the game scoreless. Mason Trafford had the crowd on its feet as he made an acrobatic kick from in close, but John Smits stretched out for the save. The game got physical at times and Dos Santos said he expects much the same next week in Edmonton. "Its going to be a war," said the Ottawa coach. "I dont think well be welcome there." While Miller felt the game was physical, he by no means thought it was ugly. He says his team prides itself on playing a hard-nosed style. "I didnt think it was over the top physical," said Miller. "I thought it was two teams committed to winning the game. Its the heat of the moment and theres an awful lot to play for the clubs." The game remained scoreless after the first half. The Fury, playing without four of its starters due to injury, had the better chances early in the half, but failed to beat Smits. Ottawas Philippe Davies nearly scored off a header at the seventh minute, but Smits was able to get a hand on it and tip it wide. Davies once again had a great chance at the 26th-minute mark, but watched in disappointment as his shot went just over the crossbar. "The first 25 minutes we came in very well and created opportunities, but for the last 15 minutes of the first half Edmonton was better," Dos Santos said. "In the second half we had a lot of problems in the beginning, especially in the first 25 minutes. After that we began to grow and it became an open game. We created situations, they created situations and our goalkeeper made a fantastic save at the end and it would have been unfair if Edmonton would have scored." Cool temperatures and a brisk wind seemed to have little effect on the play or the crowd of 2,411 who were boisterous in their support of the home team. Edmonton grew stronger as the game went on and had a number of good chances late in the opening half, but Gorrick was solid for the Fury. "This was by far the best game weve played," said Gorrick. "We showed a lot of composure, especially in the first half, and overall I think were getting better." The Amway, which features the countrys five professional clubs, is moving into its seventh edition, with the winner representing Canada in the CONCACAF Champions League. Notes: The Fury were without Tom Heinemann (high ankle sprain, 4-6 weeks), Nicki Paterson (knee, day-to-day), Sinisa Ubiparipovic (knee, day-to-day), Omar Jarun (eye, day-to-day). Edmonton lost D Lance Laing midway through the second half and isnt expected to play next week at this point.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Hi Kerry, In the Montreal-Anaheim shootout on Wednesday night, they went to review on what appeared to be a goal. The Montreal goalies body language was that the puck went in.  The shooter appeared to celebrate.  They went to video review and the overhead shot (I was watching the Anaheim feed) was repeatedly shown. You could see the puck hit the first post, then there was a delay, and then you could see the puck come off the second post and trickle along the goal line without going across. Not only was the delay curious, but on double-posters, you can usually see (in the overhead shot) the puck shooting across the goal line towards the second post. Nonetheless, in the overhead shot, you could not see the puck in the net, or cross the goal line, at any time. In the Ducks feed, just before the refs announced Torontos decision, the Ducks broadcast showed a lower side angle shot that clearly showed the puck hitting the stanchion in the back of the net before coming back to the right post. This view conclusively showed the puck in the net. What happened? Im guessing Toronto never saw this angle. Even if they didnt see this angle, didnt the overhead replay raise questions and suggest more angles needed to be viewed? Im also wondering what the call was on the ice.  If the call was a good goal, I dont think the overhead showed enough to reverse the refs decision.  Any insight on what happened would be appreciated. Greg Ward Greg: I watched the Anaheim feed as well and I respectfully disagree with your assertion that a lower side angle shot clearly showed the puck hitting the stanchion in the back of the net before coming back to the right post. In actuality, Kyle Palmieris shot went post to post and the puck travelled along the goal line before Habs goalie Dustin Tokarski swiped the puck away in disgust. Tokarski only assumed that the puck had entered the net once the shot got past him and he heard the sound of double iron. Once he turned and witnessed the puck dancing along the back edge of the goal line his assumption was that at some point it had entered the net. Since the puck must entirely cross the goal line for a legal goal to be credited (rule 78.4), the overhead camera shot provides the best evidence that Palmieris shot did not cross the line. The decision on the ice by one referee (Mike Hassenfratz) was to signal a goal. The other ref (Chris Rooney) did not make a definitive signal and was jumping out of the way of Kyle Palmieri as the Ducks player curled along the goal line toward the corner after making his shot attempt. I will say that neither referee set himself in "picture perfect" position once they gave Palmieri the signal to commence his shot attempt. Both refs were too far from the net and looking along or from behind the goal line/post once the shot was taken. A quick push to the net from just ahead of the goal line would have been the optimum position from which to determine if the puck crossed the line at any point after striking both goal posts. In spite of the fact that referee Hassenfratz felt the puck had crossed the line and signaled a goal, video review has the authority to overrule the refs decision. The referee has one quick look at a play from his exclusive angle. Video review has access to all replays that may be available by reason of any telecasts of the game (rule 38.5).  I concur with the decision rendered by the Situation Room personnel to overturn the call on the ice and to disallow Kyle Palmieris apparent goal given the clear evidence presenteed through multiple video replay angles; particularly from the overhead camera shot. Jordan Pickford England Jersey. There are times when an inconclusive verdict is rendered following video review and the referees call on the ice will stand. This clearly wasnt one of those times. For those that wish to read on I want to share a story with excerpts from my book, The Final Call, which involved an "inconclusive verdict" from video review after I signaled a goal when I saw the puck completely cross the line after striking the goal post.  The incident occurred in Game 1 of the Toronto Maple Leafs 1999 playoff series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Pat Quinn was the coach of the Leafs and at that time the video-replay official in the arena was authorized to review goals and make decisions - a responsibility that later shifted to the leagues war room in Toronto. The series supervisor, Charlie Banfield, sat in the video-replay booth. Charlie is a good friend and was an excellent NHL referee before he took early retirement in 1979 to become a firefighter in his hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia. In the second period, the video-review process (in particular, the placement of the overhead camera) failed both Charlie and me. I can still see the play as clearly as though it just happened. I was in perfect position, a half-step ahead of the goal line on the opposite side to where the players benches were located. At my back was the door where the visiting team exited the ice to get to their dressing room, located right beside ours. From this vantage point, my sightline was never obstructed by the goalpost or the mesh of the netting. The Leafs bench, where Quinn stood, was more than 100 feet away, so it was impossible for Pat to see what I am about to describe. A Penguin fired a rocket and hit the goal post nearest to me. After striking the post, the puck hit the ice flat and slid along the goal line. Less than halfway across the six-foot span between posts, the puck jumped up on its edge and curled along in an upright position. In a split second, I saw white ice between the black of the puck and the red goal line. I thrust my arm forward, pointing like an Irish setter, to signal the goal. The puck then fell back to flat, once again on the line as it continued to curl and exit the other side of the goal area. No goal light came on—nor should have, as the goal judges perspective would have prevented him from determining that the puck had completely, if narrowly, crossed the goal line. I had to blow my whistle to halt play, as I was the only one in the entire building who had seen that a goal had been scored. At least, this is until the next day. After I described the play to Charlie over the phone at the timekeepers bench, and after extensive review of the videotape, the verdict came back: inconclusive. Charlie apologized and said the overhead camera was positioned so that all he could see was the crossbar. He couldnt see the goal line. It was my call to make on the ice, and I ruled the goal would stand. The Mighty Quinn roared loudly that I had cheated his team that night. The next day, footage shot by an ESPN handheld camera that had been positioned in the corner—behind me and over my shoulder—was broadcast on ESPNs SportsCenter, and it revealed clearly that the puck had crossed the line exactly as I said it had. Even so, Pat would have none of it. He claimed the footage had been doctored. Back to present, it was wonderful to catch a camera shot of Pat Quinn being honored by the BC Place crowd during the Stadium Game Series between the Canucks and Senators. Pat is a very good person and a terrific hockey mind; even if we didnt often agree. Have a great weekend everyone.
