LATROBE, Pa. Phillip Ervin Jersey . -- Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen underwent minor surgery on his right knee Friday but is expected to return before the beginning of the regular season. Coach Mike Tomlin says the procedure will have no "long-term" effects and estimated Allen will be out a couple of weeks. The Steelers are expecting Allen to take over the starting spot that opened up when Keenan Lewis signed a free-agent contract with New Orleans in the off-season. Allen made three starts last season and intercepted two passes while helping the Steelers finish with the NFLs top pass defence.

This week, Sky Sports is celebrating its 25th birthday and weve been taking a look at some of the best moments from a quarter of a century of live sports coverage. NHL Jerseys . We reflect on Liverpools legendary 4-3 win over Newcastle - a game widely regarded as the greatest in Premier League history...Two decades have passed but the memories of Newcastles trip to Anfield in 1996 still burn brightly. Kevin Keegans faltering entertainers were in urgent need of victory having seen a 12-point lead over Manchester United replaced by a three-point deficit, while third-placed Liverpool harboured title ambitions of their own. Vote: Your favourite moment Vote here to pick your favourite moment from 25 years of Sky Sports. The encounter featured a plethora of attacking talent and had all the ingredients to be a classic, but it still managed to exceed just about everyones expectations. We were third and Newcastle were second and we were going to try to keep things tight and try to nick a win, reflected former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore. Game plans went out the window pretty early on though.Collymore would become Liverpools hero by dispatching the winning goal in second-half stoppage time in front of a delirious Kop, but his first major involvement came just two minutes in when he set up Robbie Fowlers opener with a looping cross from the left flank.The far-post header was the 19-year-olds 27th goal of the campaign, and it set the tone for the pulsating drama that followed. Within 12 minutes, Newcastle had turned the game on its head. Les Ferdinand equalised with a sharp finish from Faustino Asprillas cut-back, and David Ginola struck their second after springing Liverpools offside trap. Newcastle players celebrate Les Ferdinands equaliser at Anfield The momentum swung back in the home sides favour when Fowler rifled home his second from a Steve McManaman pass 10 minutes after the break, but Newcastle mustered another immediate response as Asprilla latched onto Rob Lees through ball and finished beyond advancing Liverpool goalkeeper David James two minutes later. Sky Sports Partnerships A look at how Sky Sports has invested in sport Newcastle continued pouring forward despite the 3-2 lead, and they were punished when an attack broke down on the halfway line in the 68th minute. Liverpool worked the ball to Jason McAteer on the right-hand side, and the Irishmans teasing cross was met with impeccable timing by Collymore to level the scores once again.The Sky Sports cameras panned to dejected Newcastle supporters in the away end, but things were about to get a whole lot worse. With the clock ticking down and both sides still searching for a winning goal, John Barnes and Ian Rush combined for the former to tee up the onrushing Collymore on the left-hand side of the Newcastle box. Stan Collymore smashes the winning goal past Pavel Srnicek All I can remember thinking was: Hit the target, said Collymore. I wanted to hit it across Pavel Srnicek, which is what youre supposed to do, but I hit it so hard that it beat him at his near post. I didnt know what to feel after. It was fantastic. I ran over to the Kop and was thinking: What have I done? Tylers greatest game The Sky Sports commentator explains why Liverpools 4-3 win was the greatest game he has worked on. Jamie Redknapp was among the Liverpool players who sprinted over to celebrate with Collymore. Incredible game, said the Sky Sports pundit. Newcastle took the lead, we came back, Newcastle took the lead, we came back… It had everything, and in that last minute, I think it was Barnes to Rush, to Barnes, to Rush, to Collymore.In the Newcastle dugout, Keegans despair was famously captured on camera. When I look back now, just seeing Kevin Keegan sprawled across the advertising hoardings, I think he was a beaten man after that, added Redknapp. Kevin Keegan can be seen slumped over the advertising hoardings as the Liverpool bench react to Collymores winning goal The Newcastle manager rejected criticism of their gung-ho playing style after the game, but Liverpool boss Roy Evans was rather more pragmatic. That was kamikaze football, he said. Great for the fans but realistically nobody will win the title defending every week like these teams did tonight.  Evans, of course, was right. Newcastle and Liverpool failed to overhaul United in the final weeks of the season, and Sir Alex Fergusons men clinched their third Premier League title with a four-point cushion.Ginola described the defeat as the turning point for Newcastle in a campaign that had promised so much. We were an entertaining team, he said, but we then realised we could lose games. Never again have they come so close to winning a Premier League title, and the wait continues for Liverpool too.  David Beckham tells Kirsty Gallacher about his favourite sporting moments in Beckhams 25 Years of Sky Sports Watch David Beckham tell Kirsty Gallacher about his favourite sporting moments in Beckhams 25 Years of Sky Sports on Tuesday at 10.15pm on Sky Sports 1, or see it first On Demand.

Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. NHL Jerseys 2020 . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . . Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The 26-year-old finished last season with Clevelands Triple-A affiliate in Columbus after signing with the Indians in August. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby would like some clarity from College Football Playoff officials on the importance of conference championship games and strength of schedule, he told ESPN on Sunday after the selection committee put 11-1 Ohio State?in at No. 3 despite the Buckeyes not winning the Big Ten East Division or their conference title.Obviously I acknowledge the difficulty of the task, but Im not sure what I advise my members right now, because weve been telling them that nonconference schedules matter, and one of the four has an exceedingly weak nonconference schedule, he said, referring to No. 4 Washington, which notched wins over Rutgers, Idaho and FCS Portland State. And weve been telling them the 13th data point matters, and we added a conference championship game because of that. Weve always heard that conference championships matter and division championships matter, and now its confusing.He added, Ill have some questions to ask when the time is right.In 2014, after TCU dropped from No. 3 to No. 6 in the final rankings for the first year of the playoff, the Big 12 went through more than a year of discussions and debates and even hired data consultants to help determine whether it needed to add a conference championship game to best position the league for the playoff. In June, the Big 12 decided to bring its title game back in 2017 and announced in October that the game would pit the leagues top two teams against each other instead of going to divisions.At that time, Bowlsby said, Given our round-robin, nine-game scheduling model, it is expected the Big 12 champion will be uniquely positioned for College Football Playoff consideration.Now hes not so sure.Im just looking for clarity, Bowlssby said. Authentic NHL Jerseys. We didnt have a team that was a likely participant in the playoff, and so from that standpoint it doesnt make a lot of difference to us this year, but Id just like to know what were supposed to advise our members. Does the 13th data point make a difference, or does it not? Does the conference championship game make a difference, or does it not? Are they only used as tiebreakers, or is it other metrics?In TCUs case, they fell out of the playoff. They had a great year and had a Heisman Trophy candidate at quarterback and won by 50 points on the last day of the season, but we were told the reason they didnt get in, the reason they fell, was they didnt have a 13th data point and they didnt have a championship. Now I think its reasonable to seek clarity on that, and when the time is right, I will ask those questions.After Baylors abysmal nonconference schedule had been called into question in each of the first two years of the playoff, the Big 12 also issued a scheduling mandate throughout the league to help boost strength of schedule. The Big 12s current scheduling policy is that schools arent allowed to play more than one FCS opponent and they have to play one other Power 5 opponent.Weve told our schools you shouldnt be surprised if you dont get in if you play a weak nonconference schedule, and then somebody with a weak nonconference schedule does get in, Bowlsby said. Its just another case in which we need to seek clarification.They have a difficult job to do, he said of the 12 members on the selection committee. We just need to know what the rules are. ' ' ' 
LOUISVILLE, Ky. Authentic NHL Jerseys . -- Louisville coach Rick Pitinos concerns about the early season schedule causing his 12th-ranked Cardinals problems might be merited at some point.Right now, the Cardinals are handling non-conference opponents with surprising ease.Jaylen Johnson had 14 points and 11 rebounds, Deng Adel added 11 points and Louisville jumped on Long Beach State quickly for an 88-56 blowout Thursday.The Cardinals (3-0) outscored the 49ers 23-2 over a 5:28 span in the first half for a 30-8 lead en route to their third straight 30-point win to open the season. Louisvilles height advantage made the difference on both ends as it controlled scoring in the paint 42-20 and rebounding 51-37.Louisvilles fast, effective start toward that end impressed Pitino enough to compare his teams effort to the 2013 NCAA championship squad, which is saying something this early in the season.That was really, really special to see, said Pitino, whose team made 11 of their first 14 shots before finishing at 45 percent (34 of 76) from the field. That was a clinic at the offensive end and a clinic at the defensive end.Johnson helped get the Cardinals going with 10 points and seven rebounds in the first half en route to his second double-double in three games.I just make sure Im more efficient, said Johnson, who made 7 of 11 from the field in 18 minutes.The 49ers (1-3) made just 18 of 61 from the field (30 percent) and couldnt slow the Cardinals in any phase while losing to their second ranked Atlantic Coast Conference foe in three days. Fifth-ranked North Carolina used a quick start to beat Long Beach State 93-67 on Tuesday night.It was similar because we just werent able to withstand that first blow to stay in the game, 49ers coach Dan Monson said. Once we got comfortable, its too late. Games over. You come on these road trips to try to put your kids in adversity to get them better and I dont feel like we handled it any better than we did Tuesday.Mangok Mathiang added 11 points and Ray Spalding had 10 for Louisville. The Cardinals blocked nine shots in winning the first of four games in the Battle 4 Atlantis that continues next week in the Bahamas.Evan Payne had 15 points and Gabe Levin added 12 for Long Beach State, which fell to 0-3 against the Cardinals.THE BIG PICTURELong Beach State: Just when the 49ers seemed capable of playing Louisville close at 7-6, they missed their next 10 shots and 14 of 16 overall in a drought that dug an insurmountable hole. That comes two nights after they trailed North Carolina 14-0. ... Long Beach State committed 19 turnovers leading to 25 Louisville points.Louisville: Good thing the Cardinals dominated the paint, because their perimeter shooting is still a work in progress. Adel and Donovan Mitchell (eight points) combined to make their first three attempts from behind the arc, but the team didnt make another until David Levitch and Ryan McMahon made both their attempts in the second half. Louisville still finished 7 of 20 from long range after entering the game 13 of 43 through two games. ... McMahon and Quentin Snider each had five assists for the Cardinals, who finished with at least 20 in consecutive games for the first time since 2010-11.POLL IMPLICATIONSBarring any movement by teams ahead of Louisville before Monday, next weeks Battle 4 Atlantis matchups could determine the Cardinals ranking for the following week.TIME MANAGEMENTTipoff was 4 p.m. to allow Louisville fans time to watch this game and the third-ranked football teams nationally televised contest at Houston with an 8 p.m. kickoff. Attendance was 14,337, down from the usual sellouts at the KFC Yum!

I dont think (a rest) will be happening.Cronk said he and skipper Smith would only be missing out on the advice of performance staff.The halfback is perched on 295 games, meaning the remaining two matches against Brisbane and Cronulla and two winnning finals appearances would see him celebrate game 300 in a premiership decider.

We wont lift our eyes too high.Storm are perched on 18 wins, on track to claim 20 wins this season.Parramatta is the last club to achieve the feat in 2001, with Melbournes 2006 and 2007 seasons marked off due to salary cap breaches.Cronk insisted motivations were totally linked to finals footballAs a player and a part of the game the minor premiership is respected, he said.Is it at the forefront of our minds? Not really.Our performances, our structure, doing those things are more important.If that comes as a part of it, obviously well be very satisfied and well accept the honour. ' ' ' 
VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis implored sports leaders on Wednesday to do a better job of keeping corruption off the playing field. Discount Nike Shoes .Speaking at the first global conference on faith and sport, Francis said sports must be protected from manipulations and commercial abuse.It would be sad for sport and for humanity if people were unable to trust in the truth of sporting results, or if cynicism and disenchantment were to drown out enthusiasm or joyful and disinterested participation, Francis said.The popes challenge comes during a period of widespread corruption in sports, from various scandals at FIFA to Olympic ticket abuses to match-fixing in numerous leagues and games.Members of the International Olympic Committee, soccer executives and athletes were attending the three-day conference in the Vatican.In sport, as in life, competing for the result is important, but playing well and fairly is even more important, Francis said. I trust that these days of meeting and reflection will allow you to explore further the good that sport and faith can bring to our societies.Francis has denounced doping in sport, saying drug-fueled victories are sterile. He has urged athletes to be clean and to use sport for personal development and solidarity.Francis has also spoken out strongly about corruption in all aspects of society and urged young people to resist its addictive lure.U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and IOC President Thomas Bach were special guests for the opening ceremony of the convention, called Sport at the Service of Humanity.It was very inspiring, Bach told The Associated Press of the popes speech. Thats what we all have in common. We are joining forces in the fight against corruption, for instance.We know that hes a great friend of sports and hes appreciating the values of sport very much, Bach added. We could feel that in this speech today and also in the private audience.Former Juventus great and Italy World Cup winner Alessandro Del Piero took part in a ceremonial kickoff for the event with a soccer ball on stage.Sport is passion for me, Del Piero said.

This season, Jones has produced 1,253 yards receiving (despite missing the past two games) and is averaging a ridiculous 17.4 yards per catch, but iits the tape that would scare me more than the raw numbers as an opposing defensive coordinator because of his ability to take over games with Matt Ryan throwing him the ball. Cheap Nike Shoes Authentic. he deep ball? Yeah. Jones can press the top of any secondary in the league with the ball skills to make top-level grabs down the field. But given his formation flexibility, I would worry more about his production after the catch on simple crossing routes from a slot alignment and his ability to eat up a defensive backs cushion before snapping off a route to advance the sticks. Outside of the numbers, in the slot, out of a bunch or stack formation. It doesnt matter. You have to account for Jones regardless of his alignment because he can light up your defense from any spot on the field. ' ' ' 
Former South Africa batsman Daryll Cullinan has revealed that, during his playing days, there was initially some resistance among the players to the transformation process that sought to integrate black and coloured cricketers into the national team. Air Force 1 Fake . Speaking on the eighth episode of ESPNcricinfo Talking Cricket, to be aired on Friday on Sony ESPN, Cullinan said that there was mutual distrust between the players and the administrators at the time, with each party having a different agenda.We didnt see the picture that we know today, that there is a much bigger picture to sport and transformation, Cullinan said. The importance of it, the understanding of it, I dont think we grasped. So, there was resistance.Slowly, we started to appreciate and understand where everybody is coming from. I wish that had happened more often and quicker because suddenly two worlds have come together and weve been very suspicious of each other - both sides had hidden agendas.According to Cullinan, the team did not resent the selection of players on quota, but occasionally there was a clash of interests.I dont think anybody had an issue with who was selected, but it did come to head where it got to stage where if a guy was…I remember Lance Klusener was one, he was being left out of the team and we said, No hang on, we want to be compensated for that.Recalling the mixed reactions to the inclusion of Makhaya Ntini, Cullinan said his achievements over the years remained under-appreciated.He is a story on its own, he is worth a movie being made, he said. I dont think his life, where he came from and what he achieved has been truly appreciated. But there was potential and the system was also starting to get a little hungry; politically they wanted a black cricketer, wanted to see transformation being recognised and they wanted to see kids watching TV. But, Makhaya was brilliant, Makhaya made it [on] his own and thats why I say he is a remarkable, remarkable human being.Cullinan rued that football was a far more popular choice among black youth than cricket. Soccer has been the most popular sport amongst our black youth, he said. If you take model-C schools, which I understand and know as government schools, they have three times more soccer fields than cricket fields because theres a demand for it.He said there were practical difficulties that needed to be addressed to get more black youngsters into cricket. Now theres [the problem of] logistics. When you have got a public transport system which is not efficient, its problematic getting from certain areas. So, a young kid [has] got to travel an hour and a half both ways to come to a cricket academy. A round trip is going to cost you 40 Rand. His mom is a single mom, domestic worker, thats a quarter of a monthly salary, and he is on an taxi and you dont know how safe its going to be.Ntini is one [in] a what, hundred thousand, a million, you know what Im trying to say. Its quite remarkable that we still see kids coming through but if youre going to now develop black cricketers, you need to get those numbers, and the third thing is club cricket in the townships. My thought is youve got to build that and, with the legacy of apartheid, it is a huge challenge.Watch ESPNcricinfo Talking Cricket at 10pm IST this Friday, and the repeat at 12pm on Sunday, on SONY ESPN Air Force 1 Online . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. Air Force 1 For Sale .

LOS ANGELES -- San Francisco Giants centre fielder Angel Pagan is scheduled for left hamstring surgery on Tuesday and could miss the rest of the season. The announcement was made by manager Bruce Bochy before the defending World Series champions opened a three-game series with the last-place Dodgers on Monday. The procedure to repair a tendon will be performed by Dodgers team physician Neal ElAttrache at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles, and Pagan is expected be out at least another 12 weeks. Pagan, who turns 32 on July 2, signed a four-year, $40 million contract in December after helping the Giants win their second World Series title in three years. He is batting .262 with three home runs and 24 RBIs. Gregor Blanco and Juan Perez, who was promoted from the minors on June 7, have shared time in centre with Pagan out. Blanco started the series opener in Los Angeles. Also Monday, the Giants recalled reliever George Kontos from Triple-A Fresno and optioned right-hander Jean Machi to their Pacific Coast League club. Right-hander Chad Gaudin was placed on the 15-day DL because of a bruised elbow and lefty Mike Kickham was recalled from Fresno. Pagan hasnt played since his inside-the-paark homer lifted San Francisco to a 6-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies on May 25. Air Force 1 Sale. He sustained a small tear when he aggravated the leg injury during a rehab game with Class A San Jose on Thursday night. He then met with team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki and opted to get a second opinion. "After getting the second opinion, the consensus was that surgerys the best option right now," Bochy said. It was the latest dose of bad news for the Giants, who entered Monday trailing NL West-leading Arizona by three games. It came on the same day they reinstated slugging third baseman Pablo Sandoval from the disabled list after he missed 14 games because of an injured left foot. Kontos was optioned to the minors on June 11, the day he received a three-game suspension for throwing a pitch at Pittsburghs Andrew McCutchen. He is appealing the penalty and is eligible to play until his case is heard by Major League Baseball. Gaudin was struck by a line drive on Thursday, and Kickham will make his second major league start on Tuesday night in his place. He made his major league debut May 28 in Oakland, giving up four runs, four hits and four walks in 2 1-3 innings. ' ' ' 
After one of the worst games of his career on Sunday night, Green Bay Packers quarterback?Aaron Rodgers was quick to point out that this season is only two games old. Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys . Well, its Week 2. Theres always a lot of work to be done, he?said.The problem with that statement is that Green Bay had an entire offseason to fix last years broken offense, which finished 21st in weighted DVOA.

The Packers rank 25th in offensive DVOA, and 26th in passing offense this season. (DVOA is Football Outsiders proprietary Defense-adjusted Value Over Average metric, explained here.)Clearly, this is about more than just one bad night in Minnesota against a tough defense.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. Devin Harris Jersey . -- A Chip Kelly-coached team is usually synonymous with a fast-paced and prolific offense.But in his first game as San Franciscos coach on Monday night, Kellys defense pitched its first opening week shutout in franchise history as the 49ers got a 28-0 win over the Los Angeles Rams.We felt good about our defense going into this game, but you never know until you get a chance to go out there, Kelly said. To hold (Todd) Gurley, who I think is one of the top backs in the league, to under 50 yards, I think thats a good day for us defensively.The game plan was to limit Gurley and force quarterback Case Keenum to beat the 49ers through the air. Gurley finished with 47 yards rushing on 17 carries while Keenum completed just 49 percent of his passes for 130 yards.If you cant stop the run in this league, you struggle to stop anything, defensive coordinator Jim ONeil said. Again, the guys up front did a great job. We played good team defense. Guys executed.Los Angeles had as many punts (10) as first downs.
