Liverpool centre-back Mamadou Sakho may have put his health at risk if he used a fat-burning substance, according to Sporting Integritys founding director Michelle Verroken. Nike Roshe Run Flyknit Goedkoop . Verroken, whose Sporting Integrity group is dedicated to assisting sports organisations and athletes with effective anti-doping policies, says such supplements can put a large strain on the heart.Sakho is being investigated by UEFA after an alleged anti-doping violation following a Europa League tie against Manchester United. The probe is believed to relate to the use of a fat-burning substance. The 26-year-old is expected to request his B sample be tested ahead of Tuesdays deadline.When asked by Sky Sports News HQ if there were any health risks involved in taking fat-burning supplements, Verroken said: Huge risks.If you are increasing the heart rate the important thing to know is what you are also going to be doing - if you are exercising at the same time - because you are overloading the heart and that really would not be a good thing if your heart has some congenital problem or you are demanding more of your body without proper hydration, proper food. Mamadou Sakho (right) in action against Manchester United Some of these fat burners even contain a diuretic to take water out of the body and literally make your body appear smaller. And again, if you are trying to dry out the body when you are involved in intense exercise, there are really big risks in terms of cardiovascular problems.Verroken is not convinced fat-burners improve performance though, and she believes there are alternative means available which are less dangerous.She said: Its a difficult question really, because if your intention is to improve your performance, I think there are far better ways of trying to do this. Sakho is being probed over an alleged anti-doping violation But certainly some people might encourage the use of these type of supplements as a way of giving you perhaps a little bit more energy, offsetting fatigue so that perhaps you could hang on in there that little bit longer.We do know that some people use them as a way of training for longer, and if they are consuming those really they have got to look at the point of which they get to exhaustion and the body is very, very under-pressure and certainly the heart has been beating faster to try to speed up the metabolism. Really thats not the safest way to enhance your performance but any high is going to be followed by a low.Fat burners appear in sports supplements and certainly what they are intended to do is really speed up the bodys metabolism. They make the heart beat faster and certainly that is their action in the body, to stimulate the body and really increase your energy levels, make you feel you have a little bit more energy and burn off the fat in the body cells. Sakho is expected to request a test of a B sample And Verroken insists the Premier League should not be criticised because UEFA discovered the alleged violation, as she believes that is down to the timing of an individuals test.Verroken said: We have a range of programmes going on across sport, some by international bodies, some by national bodies, so really its all a matter of timing that testing according to the kind of performance schedule, the training schedules of athletes across different sports.I dont think its fair to perhaps compare one testing program with another. In some respects its a bit of a lucky dip almost, because if you are using a supplement, it may not be a contaminated version of that supplement, it may not contain a prohibited substance.But the next batch that you use may very well contain that prohibited substance, so if thats the timing of when the testing programme goes on then certainly in some respects its more bad luck than anything else. But thats what happens in anti-doping, we have to create the deterrent in order to deliver the detection. Also See: Liverpool video Liverpool fixtures Liverpool stats Get a £10 free bet!

UNCASVILLE, Conn. John Simon Texans Jersey . -- Alyssa Thomas scored 15 points to lead the Connecticut Sun to an 84-80 victory over the defending champion Minnesota Lynx on Friday night in the WNBAs return from the Olympic break.Jasmine Thomas scored the tiebreaking basket with 15.2 seconds to play and finished with 12 points, and Alex Bentley and reserve Courtney Williams also had 12 points for the Sun (9-16) in their third straight victory. Chiney Ogwumike had 11 points and 10 rebounds.Seimone Augustus pulled second-ranked Minnesota (21-5), which had four players and coach Cheryl Reeve with the champion U.S. team in Rio, into a tie with a tough baseline jumper with 1:03 to play.Then 5-foot-9 Jasmine Thomas responded with a baseline jumper of her own over 6-2 Rebekkah Brunson, making it 82-80. Maya Moore, who scored 40 points for the Lynx the last time the two teams played, then shot an airball on a 3-pointer.The Sun followed with a miss, but Ogwumike grabbed the rebound and that led to a free throw from Camille Little at 17 seconds. After a turnover by Lindsay Whalen, Bentley iced it with a free throw at 7.2 seconds.Whalen and Syliva Fowles had 16 apiece for Minnesota but Moore, fourth in the league at 19.4 points a game, was held to eight and 3-for-12 shooting.

Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. The last Saturday of October started with nine unbeaten teams.Four went down and five remain, four of which -- Alabama, Clemson, Michigan and Washington -- are the leaders in a Power 5 conference.Sounds kind of perfect for a playoff ranking, right? It might start that way when the College Football Playoff selection committee unveils its initial poll on Tuesday night (ESPN, 7 p.m. ET).But we know the rankings probably wont end up that way, at least not when the four teams are selected for the playoff on Dec. 4. Theres too much football left to play. Whats going to be interesting to learn Tuesday night is how the one- and two-loss teams stack up behind the top four.No. 3 Clemson saved the selection committee an early headache by coming from behind to beat No. 12 Florida State 37-34 on the road. But we start in the Big 12, where the biggest damage was done in Week 9.Did Texas and Oklahoma State bury the Big 12s playoff hopes?Every Big 12 team has at least one loss after the beleaguered leagues last two undefeated teams fell on the road Saturday. Texas stunned No. 8 Baylor 35-34, and No. 10 West Virginia fell 37-20 at Oklahoma State.Tonight was our night, Longhorns coach Charlie Strong said.It wasnt a great night for the Big 12, though. After embarrassing itself with its latest failed attempt at expansion, the Big 12 looks like the first Power 5 league to be play itself out of contention for one of the four spots in the College Football Playoff.The Bears and Mountaineers were probably fringe playoff contenders to begin with. The Bears started 6-0 under interim coach Jim Grobe, but theyve defeated only one team with a winning record and three of the five FBS opponents they beat are 1-7. Because of its weak nonconference schedule, Baylors playoff chances were probably remote at best.Plus, whether the selection committee would admit it or not, Baylors ongoing fallout from its ugly sexual assault scandal would have left the committee in an unenviable position. The Bears had absolutely no margin for error and had to finish unbeaten to have a chance to make the playoff. They still have road games left at West Virginia and No. 16 Oklahoma, so theres a good chance theyll lose again.Like Baylor, West Virginia doesnt have a victory over a ranked opponent and its nonconference schedule (wins over Missouri, FCS foe Youngstown State and BYU) wasnt going to carry much weight with the selection committee.Dont sleep on No. 16 Oklahoma, however. The Sooners might be the only glimmer of hope in the Big 12. After two early losses in nonconference play to Houston and Ohio State, theyve won five league games in a row and will face Baylor, West Virginia and Oklahoma State in their final three regular-season games. Oklahoma was ranked No. 15 in the initial playoff rankings last season after an early loss to Texas, only to play its way into the top four by seasons end.?Dont be surprised to see the Sooners check in higher than that on Tuesday night.Can Strong save his job again?When LSU transfer Trent Domingue made a 39-yard field goal in the final minute to upset the Bears, Texas avoided a 3-5 start for the third straight season under Strong.If the Longhorns can win three out of their last four regular-season games to finish 7-5, would it be enough to save Strongs job? After the Longhorns dropped four of five games before beating Baylor, many Texas fans wondered when Strong was going to let Houston coach Tom Herman start redecorating his new office.Only the next four weeks will tell us if Texas has finally turned a corner and whether Strongs work is paying off. If the Longhorns lose at Texas Tech next week, their upset of Baylor probably wont mean much of anything.Texas fans want to see more consistency; this is the same team that lost 24-21 at Kansas State last week. UT still plays West Virginia at home, followed by a road game at Kansas and home finale against TCU. Theres an opportunity for a strong finish.Strong didnt hold much back Saturday night when he was asked about the speculation concerning his job. In fact, he called the rumors an embarrassment to everyone.I know this: I have a really good team, Strong said. I have a special team.Will Western Michigan row its boat to a New Years Six bowl game?The No. 20 Broncos didnt even play this weekend, but they might have been one of Saturdays biggest winners.After No. 13 Boise State lost at Wyoming 30-28 -- the Cowboys scored the winning points on a sack and fumble for a safety with only 1:25 left -- Western Michigan is the lone remaining unbeaten team from a Group of 5 conference. The Broncos will be heavy favorites in their next three games before closing the regular season against Toledo on Nov. 25.The Broncos should be the highest-ranked Group of 5 team when the CFP selection committee releases its initial rankings Tuesday night. Houston, which was the Group of 5 representative last season, was No. 25 on the first ballot.Speaking of the Cougars, they narrowly avoided a third loss to an unranked opponent, before rallying from a 21-point deficit to beat UCF 31-24 at home. Thanks to No. 22 Navys 52-45 loss at USF on Friday night, the Cougars are right back in the race for the AAC West title.Houston remains one game behind Navy and Tulsa in the loss column of the AAC West standings, so it will have to hope those teams lose again.Should Georgia and Ole Miss be worried about making bowls?Heres some ammunition for anyone who dislikes preseason polls: Ole Miss was ranked No. 11 in the preseason, Michigan State was No. 12 and Georgia was No. 18 (and then climbed to No. 9 after its opening win over North Carolina). All three teams might be in danger of missing a bowl game if they dont turn things around and finish strong.The Spartans are 2-6 (0-5 Big Ten) after falling to Michigan at home, and theyll have to win their last four games to finish 6-6. Thats probably not going to happen, as they finish the season with a home game against No. 6 Ohio State and a road game at No. 24 Penn State.Ole Miss fell to 3-5 (1-4 SEC) after losing its third game in a row, 40-29 to red-hot Auburn. Rebels quarterback Chad Kelly passed for a school-record 465 yards with three touchdowns and one interception, but the Ole Miss defense surrendered 554 yards, including 236 rushing by Auburns Kamryn Pettway.Ole Miss hosts Georgia Southern next week, and then plays consecutive road games at No. 9 Texas A&M and Vanderbilt before hosting rival Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl -- the Rebels and Bulldogs each might need to win that rivalry game to make a bowl.Georgia fell to 4-4 (2-4 SEC) after losing to Florida 24-10 in Jacksonville. The Bulldogs managed only eight first downs and 164 yards of offense, which were their lowest totals in a game in the past 20 years.Its just frustrating. We couldnt really get things going, Georgia tailback Nick Chubb said. I felt like it was always three-and-out, and we werent getting in a rhythm or anything, so it feels pretty bad.The Bulldogs play at surprising Kentucky next week, before closing the regular season with three straight home games against No. Vince Wilfork Texans Jersey. 15 Auburn, Louisiana-Lafayette and rival Georgia Tech.Playoff teams after Week 91. Alabama: The top-ranked Crimson Tide had the weekend off to prepare for next weeks SEC West showdown at No. 19 LSU, which is 3-0 under interim coach Ed Orgeron. The Tide have defeated the Tigers five straight times and havent lost in Baton Rouge since a 24-21 loss on Nov. 6, 2010.2. Michigan: The Wolverines defeated rival Michigan State 32-23, their first win in the series since 2012 and their first win in East Lansing since 2007. It was the Spartans sixth straight loss, their longest losing streak since they started 0-7 in 1982 (not counting forfeits from 1994). Michigan hosts Maryland at the Big House next week.3. Clemson: The Tigers moved to 8-0 for the second straight season with a 37-34 win at No. 12 Florida State. It was Clemsons ninth consecutive road win, 22nd straight regular-season victory and 14th ACC win in a row. Clemsons defense battered FSU quarterback Deondre Francois, and eight different Tigers defenders had a tackle for loss.4. Washington: The Huskies were tested in a 31-24 win at No. 17 Utah. Washington entered the weekend as the only FBS team that hadnt trailed in the second half this season, but that ended when the Utes took a 17-14 lead in the third quarter. Washington scored on its next possession and didnt trail again. The Huskies play at Cal next week.Next four in contention1. Louisville: The Cardinals needed a dramatic touchdown pass from Lamar Jackson with 13 seconds left to beat 34-point underdog Virginia on the road. It was the second time in three weeks that the Cardinals struggled to put away a heavy underdog; they beat 35-point underdog Duke 24-14 on Oct. 14. The good news: none of the other one-loss teams are playing exceptionally well.2. Ohio State: The Buckeyes looked pretty mediocre for the second week in a row in a 24-20 win over Northwestern. Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett failed to account for a touchdown (passing or rushing) for the first time in 25 career starts. The Buckeyes host No. 7 Nebraska next week.3. Texas A&M: After playing consecutive games against Tennessee and Alabama, the Aggies got a breather in a 52-10 rout of New Mexico State. Texas A&Ms Christian Kirk returned two punts (70 and 73 yards) for touchdowns against the Aggies, the first time in school history that a player returned two punts for scores in the same game.4. Wisconsin: The Badgers knocked off No. 7 Nebraska 23-17 in overtime at Camp Randall Stadium, their third victory over a top-10 foe this season, a first in the programs history. Wisconsins Dare Ogunbowale scored on an 11-yard run in overtime, and then Wisconsins defense batted away a pass in the end zone to secure the win. The Badgers play at Northwestern next week.Heisman candidates1. Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville: Jackson had four touchdown passes in Louisvilles 32-25 win at Virginia, including the game winner to Jaylen Smith with 13 seconds left. It was the first time Jackson threw the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter or overtime in his career. He has accounted for 38 touchdowns in eight games, which is three more than Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan had through eight games in 2006, when he set a FBS single-season record with 63.2. Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson: Watson wasnt perfect against Florida State, throwing two interceptions, but he made the big plays when it mattered. He threw a 34-yard touchdown to tight end Jordan Leggett with 2:06 left on a busted coverage, and then tossed a two-point pass to Mike Williams to give the Tigers a 37-34 win. Watson completed 27 of 43 passes for 378 yards with two touchdowns.3. Jake Browning, QB, Washington: Browning completed 12 of 20 passes for 186 yards with two touchdowns and one interception against Utah, leading the Huskies to their 11th consecutive win. He has now had multiple touchdown passes in eight straight games, which is tied with Oklahomas Baker Mayfield for the longest active streak in the FBS. Browning also had a pooch punt that was downed at Utahs 1-yard line, which set up the Huskies winning punt return for a touchdown.4. Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State: Pumphrey moved from eighth to fifth in career rushing yards in the FBS after gaining 223 yards in the Aztecs 40-13 win over Utah State on Friday night. With 5,741 career rushing yards, he needs to average 164.3 yards in the final four regular-season games to break former Wisconsin star Ron Daynes FBS career record of 6,397 yards. Pumphreys yardage in the Mountain West Conference championship game and a bowl game would also count toward his total.Best momentsTweets of the nightBest playsWorst playsQuotes of the night1. ?Defensively, what do you say?

Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy beat Toby Ng and Rachel Honderich of Canada in straight games to win the mixed doubles title at the Brazil Grand Prix on Sunday. New Balance 999 Italia .Chopra-Sikki Reddy won 21-15, 21-16. They had beaten Fabian Holzer and Barbara Bellenberg of Germany 21-18, 21-15 in the semi-final.The triumph of Chopra-Sikki Reddy made up somewhat for Anand Pawars 21-18, 11-21, 17-21 loss to top seed Zulfadli Zulkiffli of Malaysia in the mens final earlier in the day.No. 4 seed Pawar put in a strong performance to win the first game but could not sustain the momentum in the next games.Pawar, who is ranked 75th in the world, had beaten Israels Misha Zilberman in three games in the semi-finals.He had last made the finals of the Sri Lanka Open in 2014 where he had lost to Lee Hyun Il. He had reached a career high ranking of 30 in 2013. New Balance 574 Grigio . LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. New Balance 574 Uomo 2016 . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break. http://www.nbalancescarpe.it/new-balance-996-revlite.html . In what the team had called a retirement, Ryan said Thursday that he is resigning as chief executive of the Rangers in a move effective at the end of this month.Andre Marriner was the referee who gave out the highest number of bookings on average last season, but almost 200 fewer cards were shown in total than the previous year. The 2015/16 Premier League season saw 1,186 yellow cards issued and 59 reds, in comparison to 1,361 and 71 in 2014/15.Of referees who took charge of 15 games or more, Marriner averaged a league-high 3.58 yellow cards per game. Michael Oliver (3.53), Anthony Taylor (3.48) and Martin Atkinson (3.44) were not far behind.In terms of red cards, Mike Dean averaged the highest, although he did also oversee more games than anyone else (33).The key thing is he has the big games, said former referee Dermot Gallagher on Sky Sports News HQ. When youre doing 33 games youre doing the high-profile games, which have more pressure, the players react differently because of the stakes. Mike Dean talks with Chelseas Diego Costa (right) and Oscar Dean showed nine red cards, an average of 0.27 per game, putting him ahead of Jonathan MMoss (0. http://www.nbalancescarpe.it/offerte-new-balance-997.html. 24), Neil Swarbrick (0.22) and Marriner (0.21).The referee who showed the fewest number of yellow cards on average was Lee Mason, who issued 56 in 22 games (2.54 average).Robert Madley (2.69) and Roger East (2.92) also issued fewer than three bookings per game on average. Lee Mason issued 56 yellow cards in 22 games Atkinson and East both only sent one player off over the course of the season.Gallagher thinks the decrease in cards overall is a positive.Definitely its good news, he said. It shows that the referees are communicating with the players a lot more.I think the advent of the captains coming in before the game has helped, as the referees can get on their wavelength straight away and use them throughout the game to stop yellow cards escalating.

CHAPEL HILL, N. Geneo Grissom Jersey .C. -- Justin Jackson buried shot after shot from behind the arc in the best performance of his career for No. 7 North Carolina. Coach Roy Williams didnt have much to feel good about otherwise.Jackson matched his career high with 27 points and hit a career-best seven 3-pointers to help the Tar Heels beat Davidson 83-74 on Wednesday night, though they struggled both to slow down high-scoring Wildcats guard Jack Gibbs and find much of a rhythm with top point guard Joel Berry II sidelined by a sprained left ankle.Well its been a lot of fun watching this basketball team at certain times this year, Williams said. It was not fun tonight.The Tar Heels (9-1) didnt get in any kind of groove offensively, with the 6-foot-8 Jackson largely carrying the offense on a night when they got little production from the front line. He had shot 30 percent from 3-point range through his first two seasons and was up to 35 percent coming in before matching his previous high of four 3s by halftime.Confidence and stepping into it -- I think thats all it was, Jackson said. I knew I had to step up more but then whenever I got my shots, I just stepped into it like it was another shot.But UNC shot just 38 percent, while only Isaiah Hicks (13 points) and reserve Luke Maye (career-high 10 points, all before halftime) reached double figures.Gibbs -- ranked seventh nationally by averaging 23.3 points -- finished with 30 points for the Wildcats (5-3), who trailed by 16 midway through the second half before making a late push to get within three in the final 2 minutes.But Kennedy Meeks answered with two free throws, then Hicks followed with two more after getting a big rebound in traffic with 52 seconds left to help UNC hang on.They made some good plays, they got some key rebounds, Gibbs said of the final minutes. Theyve got athletes and sometimes its tough to get those rebounds. Down the stretch, they made the plays and we didnt.BIG PICTUREDavidson: Gibbs is the kind of scorer that can scare any opponent when he gets hot, while Peyton Aldridge (22 points) provides his own matchup troubles. And with a veteran coach like Bob McKillop, this is the kind of team that scares big-name teams come tournament time.I loved the way they fought, McKillop said.UNC: The Tar Heels got a glimpse of life without arguably their top player in Berry. Nate Britt got the start and had six assists but missed all eight of his shots, while Seventh Woods and Stilman White (career-high six points) saw plenty of minutes at the point. But the Tar Heels missed Berrys finish-through-contact toughness, leadership and scoring ability.DEFENSIVE HELPGibbs and Aldridge combined to make 17 of 35 shots, with Gibbs hitting five 3-pointers.As teammates, we `ve got to do a better job of helping off and helping out on players like Gibbs, Meeks said. Like (Williams) probably said in the press conference, either were going to be a mediocre team or were going to be a good team. Weve got to decide before its too late.CONFETTI?The game was 5 seconds old when there was a brief stoppage due to falling confetti-like material fluttering to the court from the rafters of the Smith Center. Arena staffers swept it up and the game resumed within a minute or two.Team spokesman Matt Bowers said at halftime it was believed to be pieces of a padding used to absorb leaks near the ceiling.UP NEXTDavidson: The Wildcats get a 10-day break before playing their fifth power-conference opponent this year, facing No. 3 Kansas on Dec. 17 in Kansas City, Missouri.UNC: The Tar Heels begin a two-game set with Southeastern Conference opponents, first by hosting Tennessee on Sunday before facing No. 6 Kentucky on Dec. 17 in Las Vegas.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap---More AP college basketball at http://collegebasketball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-Top25 Marcus Cannon Jersey .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season.

Formula One is on the verge of a multi-billion dollar takeover by John Malones Liberty Group, with a two-stage $8. Latavius Murray Raiders Jersey .5 billion deal expected to get underway on Tuesday.While Liberty and Malone have been linked with the purchase of an F1 stake -- controlling or otherwise -- since February 2014, on-going talks have reached a satisfactory conclusion, according to F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.Speaking to reporters in the Monza paddock, the 85-year-old F1 czar was confident that the sports new owners would not affect his own position. I will do what I have always done, Auto Motor und Sport quoted Ecclestone as saying. What role I play is my decision.In the immediate future, there is no reason to expect much change in direction for F1. But the paddock rumour mill suggests that any guarantees of Ecclestones position remain in place for only the first tranche of the $8.5 billion handover; once the deal has been completed in full it is entirely possible that the man who turned Formula One into a billion-dollar business will find himself in a role more sinecure than senior.So what does the future hold for Formula One under its new owners?First and foremost, expect to see better marketing of F1 in the United States, home to Malones businesses and fortune. As the owner of a multimedia group that includes cable services provision, internet access, and direct-to-consumer sales, Malone is in a unique position when it comes to exploiting his existing businesses to maximise the value of his latest investment.And America is not the only market in which Malones companies hold sway: Liberty Media may be headquartered in Colorado, but through sister company Liberty Global and a 29 per cent stake in Discovery Communications, Malone is also a key media influencer on an international level.Historically, Malones purchases have increased in value after his acquisitions; the American businessman has targeted businesses with unrealised potential and added value before off-loading his stake for a profit. But Malone is no short-term operator: in the early 1990s he spotted the opportunities in digital cable services, and over the course of the following decade his businesses expanded into content creation as well as service delivery.While any $8.5 billion deal has to be seen as something of a gamble given the sums involved -- not forgetting that F1 has no guaranteed longevity beyond the 2020 expiry of the current round of Memoranda of Understanding that replaced the Concorde Agreement -- Malone would not be on the verge of doing the F1 deal had he not spotted opportunities for growth and profit within the sport.Perhaps the most obvious area for expansion is that of general marketing and promotion. The Formula One Group lacks a centralised marketing department, and the bulk of event promotion is done by individual host circuits as they attempt to drum up ticket sales in an attempt to claw back the cost of hosting a race.There is no centralised cohesive effort to ensure that Formula One remains in the public imagination long after the F1 circus has left town, and little is done to create public anticipation in the run-up. Where such promotional events do take place, it is largely at the behest of individual teams and sponsors: Shell held a Sebastian Vettel fan event before the German Grand Prix in Hockenheim, while Petronas traditionally make the Mercedes drivers sing for their suppers at the twin towers in downtown Kuala Lumpur.If F1s new stakeholders want to get a return on their investment, they have to make the sport more profitable. The most obvious way to do so is to increase the size of the sports fanbase, both those watching at home and those attending grands prix in person.Bringing the sport back to terrestrial television is one way to improve the home audience, but as Malone is a man who made his millions off the back of the subscription TV explosion, it is unlikely that we will see the sport back on free-to-air channels at his behest. Instead it is in his interests to improve the general promotion of the sport so that those not currently interested in Formula One choose to pay their hard-earned cash to check it out, either in person or by subscribing to a service that airs it (preferably one owned by Malone, naturally).In America there is a fine tradition of selling both sport and show as separate entities. Millions of people with little-to-no interest in American football will tune into the Super Bowl for the infamous half-time show. Even high school sports use the lure of cheerleaders to entice the uninterested into the bleachers.This year the Circuit of the Americas provided a perfect example of using the show to boost the sport: COTA secured Taylor Swifts only concert of the year for their Saturday night post-qualifying entertainment, meaning that any tween within reach of Texas who wants to see her play live will need to fork out for a three-day race ticket whether or not they know what F1 is. It may not lead to packed grandstands once the tweens have left on Sunday, but the strong ticket sales have provided a boost to COTAs hopes of a long-term future.Expect to see similar -- and centralised -- efforts to promote the sport when Liberty Media take over. Drivers will be expected to do their part to drum up interest, with high-profile TV appearances in target markets, showcar stunts straight out of the Red Bull Guide to Self-Promotion, and a calendar designed in such a way that it becomes physically and geographically possible to use the sports stars to sell the spectacle.

Liverpool centre-back Mamadou Sakho may have put his health at risk if he used a fat-burning substance, according to Sporting Integritys founding director Michelle Verroken. Nike Roshe Run Flyknit Goedkoop . Verroken, whose Sporting Integrity group is dedicated to assisting sports organisations and athletes with effective anti-doping policies, says such supplements can put a large strain on the heart.Sakho is being investigated by UEFA after an alleged anti-doping violation following a Europa League tie against Manchester United. The probe is believed to relate to the use of a fat-burning substance. The 26-year-old is expected to request his B sample be tested ahead of Tuesdays deadline.When asked by Sky Sports News HQ if there were any health risks involved in taking fat-burning supplements, Verroken said: Huge risks.If you are increasing the heart rate the important thing to know is what you are also going to be doing - if you are exercising at the same time - because you are overloading the heart and that really would not be a good thing if your heart has some congenital problem or you are demanding more of your body without proper hydration, proper food. Mamadou Sakho (right) in action against Manchester United Some of these fat burners even contain a diuretic to take water out of the body and literally make your body appear smaller. And again, if you are trying to dry out the body when you are involved in intense exercise, there are really big risks in terms of cardiovascular problems.Verroken is not convinced fat-burners improve performance though, and she believes there are alternative means available which are less dangerous.She said: Its a difficult question really, because if your intention is to improve your performance, I think there are far better ways of trying to do this. Sakho is being probed over an alleged anti-doping violation But certainly some people might encourage the use of these type of supplements as a way of giving you perhaps a little bit more energy, offsetting fatigue so that perhaps you could hang on in there that little bit longer.We do know that some people use them as a way of training for longer, and if they are consuming those really they have got to look at the point of which they get to exhaustion and the body is very, very under-pressure and certainly the heart has been beating faster to try to speed up the metabolism. Really thats not the safest way to enhance your performance but any high is going to be followed by a low.Fat burners appear in sports supplements and certainly what they are intended to do is really speed up the bodys metabolism. They make the heart beat faster and certainly that is their action in the body, to stimulate the body and really increase your energy levels, make you feel you have a little bit more energy and burn off the fat in the body cells. Sakho is expected to request a test of a B sample And Verroken insists the Premier League should not be criticised because UEFA discovered the alleged violation, as she believes that is down to the timing of an individuals test.Verroken said: We have a range of programmes going on across sport, some by international bodies, some by national bodies, so really its all a matter of timing that testing according to the kind of performance schedule, the training schedules of athletes across different sports.I dont think its fair to perhaps compare one testing program with another. In some respects its a bit of a lucky dip almost, because if you are using a supplement, it may not be a contaminated version of that supplement, it may not contain a prohibited substance.But the next batch that you use may very well contain that prohibited substance, so if thats the timing of when the testing programme goes on then certainly in some respects its more bad luck than anything else. But thats what happens in anti-doping, we have to create the deterrent in order to deliver the detection. Also See: Liverpool video Liverpool fixtures Liverpool stats Get a £10 free bet!

Each season, she wafts into the room like the aroma of Moms Sunday roast. Barry Church Jersey . The unassuming scent creeps in slowly but deliberately, cutting through the clutter of the day.In the sports world, college basketball competes with a stable of cornerstones: the World Series, the NFL, the NBA and college footballs final, critical weeks.A segment of its fan base treats the sport like the train it will catch later, just in time for the NCAA tournament, the greatest conclusion to any season in sports. Thats a mistake because every game counts.The opening night arrangement of the 2016-17 season -- anchored by Fridays Armed Forces Classic matchups of Arizona-Michigan State and Kansas-Indiana -- is the start of a fascinating year.Heres why you should care about today and everything that follows:1. Because Kentucky is Kentucky again (maybe) Last years Wildcats, led by Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray, split the SEC championship and exited the NCAA tournament after a second-round loss to Indiana. Lexingtons Power Rangers are back with a bouncy crew of freshmen -- Malik Monk can fly -- that resembles the dynamic incoming collectives of 2009 (John Wall), 2011 (Anthony Davis) and 2014 (Karl-Anthony Towns).2. Because Coach K doesnt care, since he has the better team As John Calipari introduced his freshman class to the world, Mike Krzyzewski probably stood in the corner of Cameron Indoor Stadium and lit a cigar. Why? Well, Kentuckys One Direction-like band of youngsters cant top the No. 1 squad Krzyzewski has created in Durham. Dukes bench is a Top 25 squad.3. Because you still have to convince your friends that Kansas Big 12 title streak means something Tell Earl at the barbershop and Tommy at the bar theyre both wrong about the significance of the Jayhawks Big 12 title streak, one that could match UCLAs record of 13 in a row this year. Tell them the last time the Jayhawks failed to win a share of the Big 12 title (2004), Lil Jon had a No. 1 hit with Yeah! Who is Lil Jon? Exactly.4. Because Blake Shelton couldnt write a song as sad as Arizonas preseason The Voice stars post-Miranda Lambert breakup hit Bet You Still Think About Me had melancholy lines like, I know we couldnt hold on forever/But baby, I bet you still think about me. Somewhere, Sean Miller is thinking about the year he mightve had before Allonzo Triers mysterious issues, the indefinite suspension of Chance Comanche and Ray Smiths career-ending knee injury.5. Because the Providence Friar mascot is still hereOnly to haunt your dreams. Hes coming! Run! Who thought this was a good idea?!!!6. Because the Big Ten is a beautiful mess and thats great for everyone Who will win the Big Ten? Michigan State. Definitely. Wait, its Wisconsin. Nah, Indiana??Purdue? Maryland? We dont know. But Chaotic Big Ten is always a treat. We look forward to this.7. Because Joe Lunardi has to tell us about the SECs at-large hopes each week After Kentucky and perhaps Florida, Georgia or Texas A&M, theres not much for the guru to project in this league. Expect an elevated slate of wisecracks by the Bracketology don when its time to talk about the SEC. By the way, did you know Bracketology is a recognized word?8. Because youre going to love UCLA Its about to go down at Pauley Pavilion. Freshman stars Lonzo Ball and TJ Leaf join a UCLA team as stacked as any program on the West Coast. They could reverse all the drama from last year.9. Because youre going to be annoyed by UCLA Steve Alfords track record of molding promising young talent is lukewarm right now.10. Because Bill Walton is going to narrate Steve Alfords salvation or implosion in a tie-dye shirtRemember when Walton announced he was not a fan of former UCLA coach Ben Howland ... on live TV ... during a game at UCLA while he stood 10 feet from him? Well, this year Walton will treat us with his unmatched running commentary of Alfords rebirth or demise. Youll want to stay up for this.11. Because once Harry Giles gets healthy, youll want your favorite NBA team to draft him During an AAU tournament a few years ago, the projected top-five pick in the 2017 NBA draft played multiple possessions at point guard. Hes 6-foot-11.12. Because once Josh Jackson finds his rhythm, youll forget about Harry Giles Hes a 6-8, 200-pound hang glider. Trust us.13. Because Honey, I have to stay up and watch West Coast basketball is a legit excuse this year Dont worry about sleep this season. Gonzagas Final Four-level squad, UCLAs Ball, Wooden Award contender Ivan Rabb?of Cal, Oregons top-five squad, Saint Marys Aussie-led revival and Washingtons lottery-bound Markelle Fultz are all worth the baggy eyes and extra cup of coffee the next day.14. Because its about time we appreciate Mark Fews legacy at Gonzaga Entering his 18th season as head coach at Gonzaga, he has never missed the NCAA tournament and he has won 23 or more games each season. Perhaps hell guide the Bulldogs to their first Final Four appearance this year. Either way, he deserves a spot in national conversations about the greatest coaches in the game.15. Because Miles Bridges hit his head ... on a rim this summerSeriously. So you probably want to watch Michigan State this year.16. Because Dillon Brooks foot could change the entire season Brooks (16.7 PPG) is still sidelined by a foot injury. He should return in time for Pac-12 play, if not earlier. But his absence is a major interruption for Oregon and its nonconference aspirations.17. Because the new rule on coaches calling timeouts to rescue players inbounding the ball will help The rule that barred coaches from calling timeouts in live-ball situations, beginning last season, was tweaked to give coaches the right to call TOs on inbound plays. Good move by the rules committee to help stranded players in critical predicaments.18. Because the push for a 24-second shot clock could begin soon The move to a 30-second shot clock enhanced the game. Thats not disputed. Why stop at 30? The NBA-NCAA connection could move forward in the near future if coaches begin to push for 24 seconds the way they once demanded 30.19. Because youre not talking about a Villanova repeat ... yet No team has repeated as champion since Joakim Noahs Florida squad in 2006-07. Villanova has a real chance, however, to defend its crown. All of the Duke-Kentucky-Kansas hype will leave the Wildcats in the shadows until they begin to thump the Big East and look the part of a repeat champion.20. Because Nigel Hayes (and others) could lead the charge for player compensationHe has used Twitter and other tools as platforms to post his views on everything from racism on the Wisconsin campus to compensation for student-athletes. He has the intellect, stage and popularity to turn the latter into a movement this season.21. Because Louisvilles season of vengeance and redemption begins soon The Cardinals missed the NCAA tournament after the Katina Powell sex scandal last year. However, the program dodged the most severe potential penalties from the NCAA. Now, Louisville can focus on basketball for the first time in two seasons. Memories of all the critics who knocked them are still fresh for the Cardinals.22. Because Jay Wright is the popular kid at school that everyone envies He has a championship. He never sweats through his tailored Italian suits, even with the game on the line. Somehow, his hair remains perfect for two halves. Its not fair.23. Because Bobby Hurley is probably screaming at some random bystander in Phoenix right now to prep for his techs this year If you see Arizona States head coach yelling about nothing on campus, dont worry, Sun Devils fans. Hes just prepping for his next confrontation with Pac-12 refs.24. Because the Chicago curse is broken ... just kidding, Northwestern The Chicago Cubs ended the streak! So maybe thats a good sign for the one team searching for that elusive berth in the NCAA tournament. No. No, its not. Northwestern should improve, but its still a year (or more) from reaching the NCAA tournament for the first time.25. Because we all picked Duke to win the title ... and were wrong Some of Dukes best teams (99, 02, 04) in the last 20 years failed to win the national championship. Plus, the No. 1 Blue Devils have failed to advance past the Sweet 16 the last three times they were the top-ranked team entering the year. Your bracket is broken and the season hasnt even started. Charles Haley Cowboys Jersey . Listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1050 at 7pm et.

With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. http://www.cowboysapparelsshop.com/alfred-morris-cowboys-jersey-c-50/ . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year.ATLANTA, Georgia - Brandon Morrow first said he was "hopeful" of making his next scheduled start on Sunday in San Diego. Then the more he talked, the closer he came to guaranteeing it. "Even if theres some lingering soreness or whatever Im going to make my case that Im going to try to start that game no matter what," Morrow told TSN.ca. "I dont want to say were on the fence of whether or not Im going to start it. Im going to start that game. Its just a matter of how healthy I can get myself for it." Morrows situation presents a challenge for the Blue Jays. His right forearm strain chased him from Tuesdays start against the Braves after only two innings, forcing an already taxed bullpen to piece together the remainder of the game. Working off the assumption that Morrow will be less than 100 per cent, can the club run him out there on Sunday and risk another early night? Morrow didnt play catch on Wednesday and didnt throw his normally scheduled bullpen session on Thursday, electing instead for a combination of rest and treatment. Its likely the final decision will be made on Saturday. "Right now were planning to have him start but I dont know that I can say Im completely confident at this point," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "It doesnt look like its anything serious, but again, with Brandon, every day is so important ... There is a scenario where he would need to get moved back a few days but we wont know. Were going to wait a few days to see how he feels." Its been a disappointing season for Morrow. While his two victories put him in a second-place tie for the club lead amongst starters with Mark Buehrle and J.A. Happ - R.A. Dickeys four wins is tops entering play Thursday - his 5.63 ERA and inability to stay healthy have been drawbacks early on. Morrow missed 10 days inn early May, his start pushed back three times, with a strained back muscle. Doug Free Cowboys Jersey. The matter of his forearm strain is compounded by the pitching staffs broader health issues. Josh Johnson is out with triceps inflammation, although he was scheduled to make his final rehab start for Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday and is penciled in to pitch the Blue Jays series opener in San Francisco. Happ, recovering from a knee injury suffered when he was hit in the head by a line drive, is still more than a month away from returning. Dickeys worked through nagging soreness in his neck and while he hasnt missed a start, hes been robbed of his high-velocity knuckleball. In the bullpen, Darren Oliver and Sergio Santos are on the disabled list and Casey Janssen doesnt know until he wakes up whether his cranky shoulder will allow him to pitch that day. One could forgive Morrow if, against better judgment, he felt compelled to pitch to prop up a staff which seems to be pieced together each day. "No I dont think so," he said. "It was feeling okay through the week. I threw my bullpen and it actually felt all right, I threw a pretty good bullpen and long toss that day and it felt loose the day before. I didnt feel it playing catch. But you know the intensity level isnt the same as in the game. It was just getting that little extra on the ball that takes it from whatever it was, 85 or 86, to 93 or 94 and that makes a big difference and then getting on top of the slider was tough because when you do that you can feel the stretch along that strip of muscle." DICKEYS STRUGGLES IN ATLANTA R.A. Dickey was looking for his first career victory at Turner Field on Thursday night. In five starts in Atlanta, Dickey was 0-2 with an ERA of 7.26. Lifetime versus the Braves, Dickey is 2-5, 5.15, in 13 appearances, 10 starts. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

There was no hesitation from the 40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. SAN ANTONIO -- If only for a couple of minutes, Tony Parker started thinking about life as a member of the Boston Celtics. Sitting inside Madison Square Garden and waiting for his name to be called late in the first round of the 2001 NBA draft, Parker had been handed a Celtics cap, an indication that the team planned to select him with the No. 21 pick that was approaching.But before Bostons selection even went on the clock, former NBA vice president of player development Chrysa Chin, lovingly nicknamed Hat Lady by those who received draft-night caps from her through the years, swooped in to retrieve the lid. The Celtics, she apologized, were going in a different direction.For the better part of the past two decades, fans of the Celtics have lamented how Boston missed out on the opportunity to draft Tim Duncan. The truth is that, once the pingpong balls defied them, the Celtics never truly had a chance to nab Duncan.Now that Duncan has retired, its time to shift the spotlight to another future Spurs Hall of Famer, one whom the Celtics whiffed three times on picking, none more noticeable than with their final pick in the 2001 draft, when Boston instead selected guard Joe Forte.I dont remember what happened [with Parker], but normally what happens when a player doesnt get the hat that hes supposed to is theres been a change in the pick or theres been a trade, or a trade is coming, or there was discussion of a trade and maybe it was unsettled, said Chin, who now serves as the executive vice president of strategy and development for the National Basketball Players Association.It happens quite a bit where, at that time, I would give a player a hat, then youd have to go back and get the hat back. Sometimes families want to keep it to sort of document the history and all of that, but its normally not anything sort of catastrophic. Its sort of an operations issue.Yes, the perils of live TV. Fortunately, in the days before Twitter and cellphone cameras, no one noticed the switcheroo. Still, poor Parker, who sat in the stands despite not being one of the invited draftees, then had to wait until San Antonio finally selected him with the 28th pick. This time, Chin greeted Parker on the arena floor with a Spurs cap and directed him to the stage. During TNTs broadcast, former Celtics coach Rick Pitino detailed why Parker might have been on Bostons radar.The Boston coaching staff, they thought this was the premier point guard in the draft, Pitino said. They loved him. If Forte was not available, they probably would have gone with Tony Parker. This is someone who is very, very highly valued in the league and can really shoot it and play the point position.With three picks, including two in the lottery, the Celtics essentially emerged with 48 games of Joe Johnson at No. 10; Kedrick Brown, a freak junior college athlete who was heavily rumored to be heading to Portland but never did at No. 11; and one forgettable season with Forte.Six All-Star appearances and four NBA titles later, its fair to say things worked out just fine for Parker. But that night has certainly stuck with him.[The Celtics] made my eyes water on draft night, Parker recalled during Grantlands BS Report podcast at All-Star weekend in 2013. Im going to telll you a true story. Asics Onitsuka Tiger Australia. True story. True story. The draft, you have that NBA lady, Chrysa -- she comes to me, and it was the 19th pick, she gives me a Celtics cap and says, They are going to pick you. And it was like three minutes left on the clock, and you have five minutes to pick. Then at one minute she comes back and takes the cap, [and says,] Oh no, they changed their mind. They took my cap. I was like, What?And so then they drafted Joe Forte. I was always curious what happened. One day I asked the GM, Chris Wallace, I was like, What happened in the draft, like when you changed your mind? Because the day before, I had practiced for Boston. So I did two workouts -- I did the normal workout, then the day before the draft they did a workout. It was Jim OBrien at the time, the coach, and he was like, We want to draft you, but the Spurs are going to try to make a trade at 20, but if youre available at 21, for sure well take you. The coach and the GM, they wanted me, but the president, big boss, he changed his mind.That big boss, of course, was Red Auerbach, who lit two cigars in celebration of the Forte pick. And while its now well-documented that Forte was the last hand-picked selection for Auerbach, who had watched Forte play in high school in Maryland and likely trumped those who might have preferred Parker. Remember, too, the pick was widely praised at the time.In the aftermath of the draft, Auerbach proclaimed that Forte was an, ideal 2-guard; he can flat-out shoot the ball. Alas, Forte could not flat-out shoot the ball. He made only one field goal in 12 career attempts with Boston. He played a mere 39 minutes in eight games. Thirteen months after drafting Forte, the Celtics traded him to Seattle as part of the package that returned Vin Baker (and somehow that might have been an even worse personnel decision).Forte is otherwise remembered in Boston only for his curious fashion choices. He once reportedly wore a Magic Johnson jersey to a team meeting, seemingly oblivious at the time to the history between the franchises. He atoned by wearing a Bill Russell throwback jersey on the bench during one of the games he was inactive for, though hes better remembered for donning a Scooby-Doo sweater in the days before a more stringent NBA dress code.Forte appeared in just 17 games for Seattle and had an even rougher go there (the Washington Post detailed how he wore a Michael Jordan jersey the night of a Wizards game that ended with him getting in a fight in the team showers). Fortes final NBA career averages: 1.2 points, 0.7 rebounds, 0.7 assists over 5 minutes per game. He briefly latched on with the Asheville Attitude of the NBA D-League, playing close to his college roots in North Carolina, before embarking on a decade-long overseas career that included stops in Greece, Italy, Russia, Iran and Israel.Now in his 16th NBA season, Parker isnt quite the force he once was. But he can still turn back the clock, as he did in Saturdays win over the Nets when he put up 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting over 20 minutes.Thats twice as many points more than Forte ever scored for Boston.

Burnleys single goal for the season is simple: dont go back down to the Championship. Camiseta Kiko Casilla .Theyve done a decent job staying away from the bottom three of the Premier League through the first four months of the season as Sean Dyches side find themselves in 15th place.Burnley (4-2-8) head into Saturdays clash with Bournemouth at Turf Moor aiming to recapture some form after going winless in three straight since earning a 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace on Nov. 5.Ashley Branes 94th-minute strike propelled the Clarets to victory on that day, but its been solid home form and equally strong defence that has helped them earn positive results this season. Burnley have turned in a pair of stifling defensive efforts with clean sheet victories over Liverpool and Watford, while also knocking off Everton 2-1 at Turf Moor.Its a different story away from home where the Clarets are winless on their travels and coming off a disappointing 2-0 setback to Stoke City last week at bet365.com Stadium.Despite the result, Dyche felt his side responded well to some more early adversity.It was two soft goals, but other than that I thought it was a very good performance, Dyche said. We took the game on, which we wanted to do, and looked much more like ourselves. We know we have to change our away form.Thats an important part of the Premier League, and even though thats difficult there were clear signs (last weekend) that there was a team that went to win a game.Bournemouth come into this tilt riding an incredible wave of momentum after a stunning 4-3 win over in-form Liverpool last week. Eddie Howes Cherries (5-3-6) find themselves in 11th place, but its resilient performances like last weeks that are garnering Howe some serious consideration for the England national team job.After falling behind 2-0 on a pair of goals that goalkeeper Artur Boruc would probably like to have back, the Cherries orchestrated an incredible second-half rally as Ryan Fraser, Steve Cook and Nathan Ake all found the back of the net in the final 14 minutes.It was Fraser, who hopped off the substitute bench in the 55th minute, that made the biggest impact. He scored the clubs second goal to bring them back into proceedings, and did it with his mom in the stands.I think Im the happiest person in the stadium right now; my first Premier League goal and two assists, if you count the penalty, he said. Its a massive relief, to be honest with you, getting that first one and hopefully now I can kick on.Ive been training well recently and the gaffer has seen that as well. Hes been speaking to me and just said go on, give us a spark and try to get the team up the pitch and get a goal back. Thats whats happened and its nice.Burnley have never lost at Turf Moor to Bournemouth in any competition (seven wins, six draws). The Cherries are winless in their last six games in all competitions against Burnley (three losses, three draws), last beating them 5-0 in November 1998 when both sides were in the third tier.Between his two spells as Bournemouth manager, Eddie Howe was in charge at Burnley, winning 34 of his 87 league games with the Clarets (39 percent).This will be the first time the sides have met in the top-flight and 822nd different matchup in Premier League history. Camiseta Cristiano Ronaldo . To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. Camiseta Karim Benzema . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. http://www.realmadridonlinestore.es/camiseta-de-alvaro-arbeloa.html .  Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions. COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou Volleyball (15-3, 6-0 SEC) continued its fantastic play in Southeastern Conference action, sweeping Arkansas, 3-0 (25-19, 31-29, 25-12), on Sunday afternoon inside the Hearnes Center. The Tigers current winning streak is up to 10 matches, marking only the programs sixth double-digit winning streak since 2000. The 2016 Mizzou squad joins the 2000, 2002, 2005, 2013 and 2015 programs as the only teams to accomplish the impressive feat.The Tigers defense played a key role into their seventh consecutive sweep, tallying 13.0 total blocks and limiting Arkansas to .131 hitting (23 attack errors). Five individual Tigers recorded a solo block, highlighted by senior Emily Thater (Springfield,, Mo. Camiseta Real Madrid James Rodriguez. ) and senior Carly Kans (Honolulu) two solo stops apiece. Thaters five total blocks paced Mizzou on the afternoon.Sophomore Alyssa Munlyn (Suwanee, Ga.) produced eight kills on .667 hitting, marking her fourth consecutive match of hitting .500 or higher.
