Robert Lee reflects on Rory McIlroys decision to stay loyal to the European Tour, looks at the issues facing players considering a trip to the Olympics and discusses what the future could hold for Tiger Woods… Its great for Keith Pelley and the European Tour that Rory, our top player, is coming across and playing at the Open de France at Le Golf National. Niklas Hjalmarsson Jersey . Its something Im very pleased out, thats for sure.The European Tour was put in a difficult position with the movement of the WGC-Bridgestone to the week opposite the French Open, but they couldnt mess around with the tournament when it has been such a high calibrate event for so long and deserves the Tours loyalty. If Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth or someone like that ends up with a gold medal, will they feel like they would after a major victory? I dont think so. Robert Lee on Olympics If youre on the PGA Tour and you want to play in the Ryder Cup, then playing in France is a no-brainer for me. Le Golf National is a great course, its going to be a Ryder Cup venue in 2018 and then theres also the added incentive of double event points being up for grabs.I think the Tour has got some ambitious plans and Im sure the French Open would have been right up there in their top events. Im really thrilled for them because over the years because theyve put up big prize money and not got quite the high-profile fields they would have wanted, so this year with Rory changes all that.Busy scheduleTheres always a rammed schedule over the summer, which makes it hard for players to pick where and when to play and stay fresh for the majors, but this year is even tougher with everything squashed together because of the Olympics.Its obvious for some of the high-profile players that the idea of an Olympics just isnt floating their boat. Weve already seen a few pull out, which we wouldnt see happen for one of the majors where theyd all want to be in it to win it. Louis Oosthuizen (pictured), Adam Scott and Charl Schwartzel have all ruled themselves out of Olympic contention If Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth or someone like that ends up with a gold medal, will they feel like they would after a major victory? I dont think so.Not all of the top golfers are going to play but theyre not Olympic athletes, theyre just trying to squeeze it in to their schedule as opposed to training specifically for Rio.For track and field or the majority of sports, thats their pinnacle and theres nothing higher for them to achieve, whereas thats just not the case in golf.Maybe in years to come an Olympic gold might be as coveted as a major title, but thats assuming it remains an Olympic sport for a long time. The good thing for golf though is the national recognition it will get in under developed golfing countries because of its inclusion in the Olympics and that can only be a good thing.Tiger to return? Tiger Woods last appearance came at Augusts Wyndham Championship Everyone wants to see Tiger Woods back at something like he was, but he was playing badly before his body packed up and was really struggling.There was talk that he might try and play Quail Hollow before potentially the US Open, which if he does then I dont see why he wouldnt play at Oakmont. It will be a difficult test though and he hasnt had a lot of game time, so does he want to go out there and risk shooting over par twice? I just dont know how ready his game will be.Even if his body is fully fit and like being brand new, how much can he improve his game between now and then from a place where hes hardly played? That in itself is a big puzzle to solve. Woods has struggled with back injuries over the past decade He has got to be absolutely sure before he returns, as I dont think theres any coming back after this one. If he comes back and the back breaks down I think thats it, as he has rushed back several times before.In the past you must assume he has had the best advice and maybe not followed it, with a slightly Superman attitude. If hes getting close to a return, then expect his name to be on the slow boil in the coming weeks.Looking aheadIm in the studio again this week for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, where Justin Rose is defending champion. Weve got Danny Willett in the studio with us on Thursday which will be fun, and Im assuming hell be bringing his Green Jacket! Danny Willett will be live in the studio for the opening round Rose may have won last years tournament but he has been a bit patchy so far this year and starting to fiddle with his putting, so I think its hard to look past Jason Day this week.There are also quite a lot of decent players who have gone to Beijing for the Volvo China Open, where Im going to pick Bernd Wiesberger as someone who will have a good week.Watch the Volvo China Open and the Zurich Classic of New Orleans throughout the week on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: McIlroy to miss Bridgestone French Open prize boost Woods registers for US Open Golf live on Sky Sports 4 Brad Richardson Jersey .J.

Her rivals in the Cartier Horse Of The Year category were Almanzor, Found, Postponed and recent Breeders Cup Turf winner Highland Reel. Minding also takes the honours in the Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly category, ahead of Alice Springs, Quiet Reflection and La Cressonniere.Kevin Buckley, representing Coolmore, collected the award and said: It has been a truly magnificent season for her, a privilege to witness her career on the track and look forward to seeing her again next year and we thank Cartier for this prestigious award.This year a new record was set at the Cartier Racing Awards, with five of the eight equine awards going to horses owned by Coolmore partnerships, consisting in the main of owners Sue Magnier, Derrick Smith and Michael Tabor. All five of these award winners are trained by Aidan OBrien who gains the accolade of Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit.Even by his own exemplary standards, the Ballydoyle trainer has enjoyed a magnificent 2016, being responsible for 22 winners at Group/Grade One level. During the past quarter century, the 47-year-old has rewritten the record books, enjoying more than 250 Group/Grade One winners on the Flat worldwide.Found, who led home a remarkable 1-2-3 for OBrien and the owners in Europes richest race, last months Qatar Prix de lArc de Triomphe, was named Cartier Older Horse. The other contenders for Cartier Older Horse Award were Postponed, Limato and Highland Reel.Buckley paid tribute to the now retired Galileo filly saying: Found raced 16 times at the highest level during her career of 21 starts and won, or was placed in 13 of them, she was a Group One winner at two, as a three-year-old and as a four-year-old.I guess shell be most remembered in racing history for her emphatic won on that marvellous day at Chantilly this year in the Qatar Prix de lArc de Triomphe when she led home a marvellous 1, 2, 3, for Aidan OBrien and, not forgetting their respective sire, Galileo.I, as a representative, am deeply humbled and honoured to accept this award this evening for such a remarkable filly who has now retired to the Coolmore broodmare band where shes a most welcome addition. Theres plenty of arguments going on about her future mating plans and they are soon to be decided. But we look forward, hopefully, to seeing her progeny race in future years on both sides of the Atlantic.Order Of St George, winner of the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, was another success for Coolmore and OBrien, with the four-year-old landing the Cartier Stayer Award ahead of Quest For More, Vazirabad and Sheikzayedroad.The fifth award to go to a Coolmore/OBrien horsee, in a stellar year, was Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt, won by Churchill. Jakob Chychrun Jersey. The Galileo colt finished a superb campaign with Group One victories in two of Europes best juvenile contests - the Goffs Vincent OBrien National Stakes and the Dubai Dewhurst Stakes. The other nominees in this category were Caravaggio, The Last Lion and Mehmas. Alamanzor tok the Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt Award. Owned by Ecurie Antonio Caro and Gerard Augustin-Normand, the son of Wootton Basset was superbly handled by Jean-Claude Rouget, who trains in South-West France, to win three Group One contests - the French Classic, the Prix du Jockey Club, the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes and the QIPCO Champion Stakes. The other Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt nominees were Galileo Gold, Harzand and The Gurkha.Two fillies made history at the 26th Cartier Racing Awards. Firstly, Quiet Reflection became the first three-year-old filly to win the Cartier Sprinter Award. This followed her victories at the highest level in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot and the 32Red Sprint Cup at Haydock Park. Owned by Ontoawinner, Hubert Strecker and Karl and Elaine Buke, the Karl Burke-trained Showcasing filly gains the Cartier Sprinter Award in tight finish ahead of Limato, Meccas Angel and The Tin Man.Lady Aurelia was the other history-maker, as she is the first horse trained in the USA to win a Cartier Racing Award. Following a breathtaking all-the-way win in the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot and victory in the Darley Prix Morny at Deauville, she captured the Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly Award ahead of Rhododendron, Brave Anna and Roly Poly. Lady Aurelia is owned by Stonestreet Stables, George Bolton and Peter Leidel and trained by Wesley Ward.Harry Herbert, Cartiers Racing Consultant, commented: I would like to extend my congratulations to the Coolmore team on the phenomenal achievement of gaining a record five awards at the 26th annual Cartier Racing Awards.Minding and Found are brilliant fillies, while Order Of St George is a stayer out of the top drawer and Churchills performances bode well for 2017.Aidan OBriens achievements, with Minding, Found, Order of St George and Churchill plus many others in 2016 and during the last 25 years, speak for themselves and this outstanding trainer richly deserves the Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit.It is thrilling to see the Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly Award go to the American-trained Lady Aurelia, emphasising how international racing has become.The three-year-old filly Quiet Reflection is a worthy winner of the Cartier Sprint Award, while Almanzors dominance at 10 furlongs is testament to superb handling.The Cartier Racing Awards were established in 1991 to reward excellence in European horseracing. The awards are arrived at through three established strands. Points are earned by horses in Pattern races (30% of the total) and these are combined at the end of season with the opinions of a panel of racing journalists (35%) and votes from readers of Racing Post and The Daily Telegraph plus Channel 4 Racing viewers (35%).

Felipe Nasr believes the points he scored at the Brazilian Grand Prix will help him in trying to secure a drive with Sauber for next season. Air Max 720 Sale Cheap .Nasr impressed at his home race at Interlagos to give the Swiss team its first points of 2016, completing a strong drive to ninth place in treacherously wet conditions. The two points he collected meant Sauber leapfrogged above Manor into 10th in the constructors standings.Sauber has already announced that Nasrs current teammate Marcus Ericsson will stay on for 2017, but despite earning crucial points, which could hand Sauber a big financial boost going into next year if it can hold its status above Manor in Abu Dhabi, Nasrs own future at the team remains unclear.I would expect that [scoring points] does help, for sure, The Brazilian said. If anything a racing driver can do is to contribute to a team with points and I know how much these points are valuable. We know how much these points mean in terms of championship and resources the team will make for 2017, so its the best I could have given them.I wouldnt imagined a better way of doing it, in my home race, but those two points felt like a victory for us for the whole team. We have been going through such a difficult year and it was looking like quite an impossible way of achieving those points.But with all the rain, the difficult conditions we had in Brazil I knew there was going to be an opportunity. Nevertheless we have a last race here to confirm that so we go to keep focused on the weekend and make sure we get away with those points.It is understood difficulties involving Nasrs primary sponsor Banco do Brasil have delayed further negotiations with Sauber. Esteban Gutierrez -- who is currently without a drive for 2017 -- and Pascal Wehrlein have both been linked with the sole remaining spot at the Hinwil-based outfit, while there are just also two other seats left to fill at Manor.When asked if Nasr had held talks with Manor, he replied: Theres still negotiations going on, talks with Sauber mainly. Thats our priority right now. I have a great relationship with the team, its been two great years, we saw the two sides of the coins, the first year that I had in Formula One, I was able to do so much and achieve so much in my very first year.The second [year] we had such a difficult time, the car being uncompetitive, but it was nice that we were able to get those two points in Brazil and Im sure that has given a boost to the team. As I said these two points means a lot, for myself, and for the team and hopefully well know it soon.

LANDOVER, Md. Comprar Zapatillas Online Baratas . -- Discussing Dak Prescott after the rookie quarterbacks first NFL victory, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones managed to throw in references to folks such as Troy Aikman, Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger -- QBs with nine Super Bowl victories combined.Not bad company for a guy who was a fourth-round draft pick and is only playing because Tony Romo is out with an injured back.Prescott ran for a 6-yard TD , went 22 for 30 for 292 yards, and showed a veterans poise in the pocket, helping the Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins 27-23 on Sunday as he stayed turnover-free as a pro so far.He exudes confidence, Jones said about Prescott. Hes got a great supporting cast, but hes using it.Dallas (1-1) won for only the second time in its past 16 games without Romo -- and both of those victories came at Washington (0-2).Alfred Morris scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 4-yard run with under five minutes left against his former club, taking advantage after Washingtons Kirk Cousins threw an end-zone interception.Morris was drafted by Washington in 2012 and played his first four seasons there. But his role was reduced last year and he was allowed to leave as a free agent. His first TD in a Cowboys uniform capped an 80-yard drive that started when Barry Church picked off a pass from Cousins intended for Pierre Garcon.This is a quarterback-driven league, Cousins said. I need to play at a high level, week in and week out.Through two games, he has three interceptions and only one TD pass , an 11-yarder to Jamison Crowder in the third quarter that gave Washington its first lead, 17-13.But Cousins and the defending NFC East champion Redskins will rue the second-half chances they wasted. They got the ball inside Dallas 40 on consecutive possessions -- once because of a failed onside kick, once because cornerback Josh Norman caused one of the two fumbles by Dallas rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott -- but settled for a field goal each time.Still, Washington led 23-20 and appeared on its way to adding to the margin after Cousins began a drive by completing a 57-yard pass to rookie Josh Doctson. But on third-and-goal at the 6 with 10 1/2 minutes left, Cousins put the ball right in Churchs gut.Garcon stomped his foot coming off the field. Redskins right tackle Morgan Moses threw his helmet on the sideline.HE SAID ITEverybody thinks were in the morgue or something. Were not dead, by no means. -- Norman on Washingtons 0-2 start.NORMANS ASSIGNMENTOne big question entering the game was whether Norman would be assigned to cover Cowboys WR Dez Bryant no matter where the receiver lined up -- or stick to one side of the field, as the $75 million defensive back primarily did in Week 1, when he stayed on the left side regardless of where Steelers WR Antonio Brown was. The answer: Norman mainly remained on the left side of Washingtons defense, often leaving CB Bashaud Breeland on Bryant, early on, but eventually started to travel to where Bryant was.DEZ INVOLVEDAfter getting only one catch for 8 yards in Week 1, Bryant had seven catches for 102 yards Sunday.MORE STATSElliott finished with 83 yards on 21 carries, including a 1-yard TD run. ... Morris ran five times for a total of 7 yards. ... Redskins RB Matt Jones gained 61 yards on 13 carries with a 14-yard scoring run. ... Cousins went 28 for 46 for 364 yards.BAD MISSOn third-and-7 from Dallas 37 on Washingtons opening possession, Cousins had Crowder wide open and behind the defense for what should have been an easy-as-can-be TD. But Cousins overthrew the second-year receiver, and that bad miss ended the drive, because coach Jay Gruden chose to punt.INJURIESRedskins: NT Kedric Golston injured his right hamstring on the first play from scrimmage, eventually was driven toward the locker room on a cart and did not return.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- The verdict in Maria Sharapovas appeal against a two-year ban for doping has been delayed for a second time. Air Jordan 1 Scontate .Sharapova should now find out the decision in her case against the International Tennis Federation early next month, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said Tuesday.The Russian tennis star had initially hoped to get a fast-track verdict in July before the Rio de Janeiro Olympics began. After both sides lawyers said they needed more time to prepare their case, the target was then set for Sept. 19.Now CAS plans to issue its verdict during the first week of October.Sharapova was suspended in June by the ITF after she tested positive for meldonium at the Australian Open.She acknowledged taking meldonium before each match in Melbourne, claiming she was not aware that the drug, also known as mildronate, had been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency as of Jan. 1.An independent three-person panel appointed by the ITF ruled that Sharapova did not intend to cheat but that she bore sole responsibility and very significant fault for the positive test.Sharapova said she first was prescribed the Latvian-made drug, typically used for heart conditions, for medical reasons in 2006.Her ban is due to end on Jan. 25, 2018, which would force her to miss eight Grand Slam tournaments. She would turn 31 before the 2018 French Open begins.

Socceroos players will not be asked to mute any goal celebrations against Thailand over the death of the countrys king.Thailand was plunged into a 30-day period of mourning following King Bhumibol Adulyadejs passing last month, prompting initial disruptions to Tuesday nights World Cup qualifier.After an early request to move the game to a neutral venue, the Football Association of Thailand (FAT) agreed to host the Group B tie on November 15 as scheduled, on the condition fans refrain from singing, cheering and drumming.However the restrictions were subsequently relaxed on the basis the match falls one day after the official mourning period ends on November 14.Supporters would be allowed to bring banners and instruments and sing cheering songs and appropriately conduct joyful activities.What is considered appropriate remains open to interpretation.But while both teams will wear black armbands as a sign of respect, Postecoglou signalled he had no intention of instructing his players to sway from their usual match routine or celebrations on the pitch.The game needs to run normally, and from our intent it will be, Postecoglou said.The information we have is that the game will run normally so Im not going to try and manufacture something in the game or the context to reflect the circumstances of the game. Scarpe Air Jordan 1 Scontate. Its been sanctioned to go ahead, so it goes ahead.A couple of thousand fans have made the trip from Australia, and coupled with a large expat community the match is expected to get the biggest turnout of any of the Socceroos away qualifiers.In terms of supporters its been well-documented, the expectations, Postecoglou said.Id be very surprised if the supporters arent respectful of that.We travel throughout the region and more often than not the supporters are well-behaved.Postecoglou was reluctant to call it a must-win game despite the implications the result could have on the second-placed Socceroos group standing.He was more focused on his team producing the right type of performance.We knew the first five games would be really tough because we had two trips to the Middle East plus this away game, and one of our home games against Japan, Postecoglou said.If we play well and claim maximum points well be on 11 points from five games.Regardless of what the others do well be in a good position with three home games next year plus Iraq at a neutral venue - so weve only really got one away game in the back half.Well let the others fight it out.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Mitchell Marner Jersey . -- Titans rookie running back Derrick Henry had an MRI that confirmed that his left calf injury is a strain.Thats kind of an injury that a lot of it is pain tolerance, coach Mike Mularkey said Monday. It could be a day up to a couple weeks. Well monitor that as we go.Henry suffered the injury during warm-ups Sunday and did not play in a 43-35 loss to the Chargers.If Henry doesnt play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers at Nissan Stadium, the Titans will look to Antonio Andrews behind DeMarco Murray. Andrews got two carries for 15 yards against the Chargers.On Monday, the Titans promoted running back David Fluellen from their practice squad and waived cornerback Cody Riggs.Henry, the Heisman Trophy winner from Alabama, is second on the Titans with 53 carries, but his 221 yards and 4.2 yards per carry rank behind Murray and quarterback Marcus Mariota.The Titans have used Murray heavily, and Mularkey consistently says Henrys role is determined by game flow. He has maxed out at 16 carries in a game but has averaged fewer than seven per game while Murray gets just over 19. Auston Matthews Jersey .

Theyre having a real up at the moment.Right at this moment theyre the team to play.Melbournes last month features an intimidating set of fixtures but Bellamy wouldnt have it any other way.After the Raiders is another away-day against rivals Manly, before the Storm close out the regular season at home to sixth-placed Brisbane and Cronulla in a blockbuster first-versus-second clash.The easiest match of their final month was supposed to be last week, but Melbourne needed a golden point to beat the third-last Rabbitohs at home.Bellamy said on the basis of that showing, vast improvement was needed to evven be competitive against Canberra. Borje Salming Jersey. If we defend like that again this week, well get steamrolled, he said.Theyve got a lot of strong structures and dangerous guys with the footy.

You get reports every week. Hopefully hell be back soon ... but at this stage he wont be playing this week, he said.If the Storm are short of inspiration against Canberra they could always lean on their wingers Suliasi Vunivalu and Marika Koroibete.Bellamy said the Fijian pair were celebrating their countrys first Olympic gold medal in the Rugby Sevens on Friday morning (AEST).Theres a real smile on their faces, Bellamy said.

Nearly 19 months after he coached his last game, Payton will be back on the sideline when New Orleans plays the Kansas City Chiefs in an exhibition opener Friday night at the Superdome. It wont come close to matching the intensity of his last game, a pulsating, excruciating 36-32 loss at San Francisco in the divisional round of the 2011 playoffs. But the dome should be rocking for his return from an unprecedented year-long suspension for his role in the bounty scandal. "Just getting back to being out on the field in practice and having a chance to coach in a regular game, that part of it is exciting," Payton said. "The fans have been great. They get excited about our team, especially at the start of the season after everything that went on a year ago. I know our players are excited to play." Much has changed since Payton walked off the field at Candlestick Park on Jan. 14, 2012, ruing a heartbreaking end to the Saints season. In a game with four lead changes in the last 4:02, the 49ers won on a 14-yard touchdown reception with 9 seconds left. New Orleans, which was 9-0 at home, would have played host to the New York Giants in the NFC championship game the following week. Without Payton, the Saints slipped to 7-9 last year, losing their first four games en route to their first sub-.500 season since 2007. After setting an NFL record for most yards gained in 2011, New Orleans shattered the mark for most yards allowed in 2012. Then-defensive co-ordinator Steve Spagnuolo, hired by Payton before his suspension, was fired and replaced by Rob Ryan. The Saints have changed to a 3-4 alignment from a 4-3. Drew Brees, who threw for an NFL-record 5,476 yards in 2011, tied the NFL high with 19 interceptions in 2012. Chiefs quarterback Chase Daniel, slated to play the second quarter after spending the last three years with the Saints as Brees backup, had an inside view of the New Orleans locker room without Payton. "It was one of the toughest years professionally in my short career that Ive been through," Daniel said. "Its hard when you lose your rock and your head coach like Sean Payton is down there. I think Drew put a little extra pressure on himself to fill the player and the head coach void. " Daniel knows it will not be the normal preseason atmosphere at the dome. "Well, I talked to the ticket guy a couple days ago, and its sold out," he said. "Its Sean Paytons first game really in like two years. The New Orleans fans love their football and it doesnt matter if its preseason, off-season, Super Bowl, regular season. Theyre going to be out in full force, and its going to be loud." Paytons last game in the Superdome was a 45-28 win against Detroit on Jan. 7, 2012 in the NFC wild-card round. He will call plays for the first time since Nov. 6, 2011, when he tore his left MCL and broke his leg in a sideline collision during a game at Tampa Bay. He gave up the play calling to offensive co-ordinator Pete Carmichael for the rest of 2011, but has reclaimed that duty. Payton played down his emotions a bit Thursday, but his players anticipate a raucous atmosphere. "Its going to be live," safety Malcolm Jenkins said. "Its loud every time we go into the dome, and with Seans return and just the anticipation that seems to be buzzing around this season, everyone is going to be very excited." NOTES: Payton said the starters would play 14 to 16 snaps. After Brees leaves, Luke McCown will replace him, with undrafted rookie Ryan Griffin following McCown. Payton said Seneca Wallace, the other quarterback competing for the backup spot, likely would not play to rest a pulled groin. Discount MLB Jerseys . McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care. "Weve told him to stay as long as necessary with your dad," he said. Ovechkin and his Russian national team were eliminated from the mens hockey tournament in Sochi on Wednesday with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is waiting on news of striker Romelu Lukaku after he had to be substituted in their 3-0 win over Newcastle on Wednesday night. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Stitched . The Belgium international got a knee in the back from Magpies defender Fabricio Coloccini just nine minutes into the match at Goodison Park and was eventually replaced at half-time.Lukaku could not walk after the game and is now a major doubt to face Stoke in the Premier League on Saturday, with Martinez confirming he will be assessed by the clubs medical staff ahead of the trip to the Britannia Stadium. It was a very sore one. He stayed on the pitch for a period and found it really tough to open his legs, Martinez told Sky Sports.He had a knee right in the middle of his back and probably had a neurological reaction and found it really difficult to be able to walk. Roberto Martinez hopes to have John Stones fit again next week Well assess him. Obviously weve got a game around the corner against Stoke and well see if he can recover for that game.It was impossible for him to carry on.Martinez insisted the hamstring injury which kept John Stones out of the match is not serious, though.The England defender was a surprise omission and Everton boss Martinez revealed he had undergone a scan during the week.Stones also missed Sundays FA Cup win over Carlisle, but could be in contention for a return to the side for the trip to Stoke. Aaron Lennon says the Everton players hard work in training paid off in their 3-0 win over Newcastle John had a little bit of a niggle in his hamstring, added Martinez.We scanned it yesterday and its nothing serious, but its one of those feelings you get when you play a lot of games and a lot of minutes.John has had a very intense period, but I dont think hes going to be out too long. Hopefully hes going to be back next week.

Hawthorn dont much care if theyre perceived as flying under the radar but opponents should underestimate them at their peril, warns premiership forward Luke Breust.The Hawks have quietly gone about their business in their bid to claim an historic fourth flag in succession.Theyve racked up nine wins in a row to sit two games clear on the ladder with four matches left in the home-and-away season.But the rise of Greater Western Sydney and the impressive form of Sydney, Geelong and Adelaide have captured much of the media spotlight as the battle for the remaining top four spots heats up in the run to the finals.Its been interesting to see how thats unfolded ... maybe its because we were just falling over the line in some games that we were flying under the radar a little bit, Breust said on Tuesday.There was (some) thinking that we could be knocked off, thats sort of worked in our favour I think.But I dont think (were being underrated) and if they are then I guess they do so at their own peril because werre hopefully going to finish top four. Cheap Kirk Cousins Jersey. Were two games clear now with four games to go. That was the goal at the start of the year.Hawthorn will attempt to make it 10 wins on the trot when they take on Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday.Star duo Cyril Rioli (unspecified injury) and Paul Puopolo (hip) missed the scrappy win over Carlton in Launceston at the weekend but the Hawks are hopeful of regaining them.The pair trained on Tuesday but must pass fitness tests later in the week to play the Demons.Hopefully they can get a full week of training in ... it would be nice to have them back, Breust said.I cant remember playing without both of them before. It would certainly be nice to have all three of us together putting on some forward pressure and trying to kick a few goals.They ran today and theyll have to get through Thursdays session to be any chance on Saturday.

On Friday afternoon, Keala Kennelly watched on the tiny screen of a borrowed cellphone as her friend and competitor Paige Alms won the Peahi Womens Challenge at Jaws, Mauis famed big-wave break, and captured the inaugural World Surf League womens Big Wave Championship. Ecco Outlet Italia .A few hours earlier, in the first heat of the womens contest, Kennelly caught the opening wave. It was the first surfed by a woman in a WSL big-wave contest, and it received the highest score of the day. On her second wave, Kennelly lost her balance navigating bumpy surf and felt the lip of a 30-foot wave crash onto her back leg. An MRI fortunately revealed no torn ligaments, but she was unable to surf in the final for which she qualified.As the first woman to tow into a wave at Teahupoo, the first woman to paddle into a wave at Nelscott Reef and the first woman to win an XXL Big Wave award in a previously male-only category, Kennelly, 38, is one of the most influential and respected women in big-wave surfing. Alms, 28, is the next generation. In 2005, she became the first woman to get barreled at Jaws, her home break and a wave shes surfed since she was 14, and was called the best female big-wave surfer by Surfline.She lived up to that billing on Friday, catching more waves than any woman in the event and surfing with confidence and poise on a windy, treacherous day at Jaws.The day after competing in this historic event, espnW caught up with both women, who were already asking, What next?espnW: What was the vibe like when you all arrived at the beach Friday morning knowing youd surf in the first WSL womens big-wave contest ?Paige Alms: Everyone was so supportive. I was so happy to see that all the girls showed up and were charging.Keala Kennelly: I was more relaxed than ever for a contest. I was Zen. Ive been living in California. I was just so happy to be in Hawaii and back in warm water. I was excited to surf anything over 4 feet. I was hyped to be able to paddle out without 60 guys in the lineup.espnW: What was it like to be out at Jaws with only women, and so few people, in the lineup?PA: Even when were free surfing at Jaws, there are usually only one or two women in the lineup. The most theres ever been at once was four or five girls. To have six of us out there in a heat with no one else in the lineup, we all felt the same way: This is awesome.If there are 60 guys in the lineup, you dont catch a lot of waves. We were all glowing and proud to be out there together. Win or lose, having an empty lineup at your home break, one of the best big waves in the world -- nothing tops that.espnW: Paige, because Maui is your home break, did you feel more pressure on you to take the win?PA: The pressure comes from within. I wanted to put on a good show and make sure we represented women well. That was the pressure for me. It wasnt about winning the contest. My friends tried to put that pressure on me. But it was about having those empty lineups, choosing the waves you want with other girls. When I won, I felt like I won for everyone.espnW: What was it like to have so many women competing at a break at which you both have been such pioneering surfers?PA: Only half the 12 girls had surfed Jaws before this contest, and the other half of us were nervous for that. I know how powerful this wave is, but not knowing is almost better. Those girls showed up and sent it. I felt pride for the girls.KK: Windy Jaws is treacherous, so my hats off to all the girls who went out and took a wave.espnW: Speaking of wind, the conditions looked incredibly windy on the webcast. How bad was the wind?PA: It was very challenging. It matched the name of the contest, The Peahi Challenge. The wind was gnarlier than it looked at home. When its windy like that, it becomes really dangerous. I dont usually surf it when its windy. The risk isnt worth the reward.KK: I was excited when we left the harbor. But on the boat ride out, you can tell if the wind is going to be an issue. As the water got choppier, I could see the wind was going to be an issue, and that gets scary for me at Jaws. It becomes really dangerous because the wind gets up under the board, holds you up at the lip, doesnt let you in and releases your fins. It ups the danger so much. It was intense.espnW: Knowing that, how do you find the confidence to paddle out and make the decision that its worth the reward?PA: When the stadium is set and you know you have to go out, you go. We had a moment when I heard there would only be three of us in the final [after Kennelly, Laura Enever and Emi Erickson qualified into the final but pulled out due to injuries], and some girls asked if we should postpone the event or push it to the next stop on tour. I was like, No. We are here to surf, to do the job they invited us to do. If we didnt step to the plate, it would make womens big-wave surfing look bad.The conditions were tough, but its still the best big wave in the world, even when its windy. We are going to do it now. It was game on for all of us from that point.KK: Paige did such an amazing job and sent it. She went out there and earned her victory and carried it for the women. But Paige is a true sportswoman and she was bummed I wasnt in the final. We love and respect each other, and Paige definitely wants me out there. But she is so deserving. Paige let people know that we deserve to be there.One of the disadvantages of being backside at Jaws is you have your back to most of the wave so its difficult to see ??the oncoming section and sometimes it can creep up on you and take you out. ?????? unfortunately I didnt see the end section coming on this wave and it caught me by surprise so I had no time to brace myself for the explosion ???? and my body paid the price ??. @wsl #Peahichallenge2016 ?? by @tonyharringtonA photo posted by Keala Kennelly (@kealakennelly) onNov 12, 2016 at 11:34am PSTespnW: What do you think happens from here? Is this the first of many big-wave events for the women?PA: Thats the goal. This is the first of its kind, the first time they gave us this opportunity. This is my home break, where I grew up and learned to surf big waves, and I felt obligated to put on a show to show the world we know how to surf this wave. Thats where the pressure came from. Now that we showed that, I hope the WSL will add more events. Maybe we can talk them into having the Todos womens event. It would be rad to have an event at all the big wave stops.KK: It was an honor to compete, and I was stoked for the opportunity. Its not the way I wanted it to go down, but Im proud of the wave I rode and proud that I got the highest score. And I am excited for next year. There will be a next year. Ecco Scontate Outlet .

Now tied for second in the league in shootout goals, the 24-year-old likes to see what the opposing goaltender has in store before he ultimately lands on a move. (STATS) -- Championship Saturday 2015. It still lives in the thoughts of the Saint Francis football coaches and players.They played for the Northeast Conference championship at Duquesne on the final day of the regular season last November.Boasting a winning record for the first time since 1992, they surely started getting ahead of themselves when they built a 14-0 lead through one quarter.It was all Duquesne from there, with SFU suffering a 30-20 loss that still stings today.Its still in my heart. I cant get rid of that feeling, All-America safety and kick returner Lorenzo Jerome said.With the success that came, coach Chris Villarial said, thats a hard pill to swallow.The NEC figures to be competitive again, with 2013 and 14 champ Sacred Heart expected to get back into the championship mix. Duquesne is the preseason favorite.Saint Francis isnt quite the upstart anymore. With an experienced team returning from the breakthrough season -- and heartache -- Jerome points out, We know how to win this year.Duquesne is equally as experienced, though, and committed to playing physical defense. The Dukes nearly upset CAA Football power William & Mary in their first-ever FCS playoff game, falling 52-49 on the road.This years goal, star quarterback Dillon Buechel said, Just take it to the next level. Get back to that point and try to do some damage in the playoffs this year. … Guys on this team love to compete.Following is a team-by-team breakdown of the 2016 Northeast Conference race and STATS predicted order of finish:1.

The strong-armed Buechel, who threw for 423 yards and six touchdowns against William & Mary in the Dukes first-ever FCS playoff game, is a fourth-year starter who was named the NECs preseason quarterback. He gets back Capers (51 receptions, nine TDs) and developing sophomore Crawford to keep the offense moving the ball. The Dukes are replacing three starters on the offensive line in addition to dropping in the new starting running back, Fulmore. The defense helped force 26 turnovers (which led to a plus-13 turnover margin) and seeks to remain opportunistic. It has an exceptional linebackers corps led by Kuntz, the 2015 NEC defensive player of the year. A bulls-eye is squarely on the Dukes backs.SCHEDULE:Sept. 1, at Youngstown StateSept. 10, BucknellSept. 17, DaytonSept. 24, Kennesaw StateOct. 1, at JacksonvilleOct. 15, Robert Morris*Oct. 22, at Saint Francis*Oct. 29, Bryant*Nov. 5, at Wagner*Nov. 12, Sacred Heat*Nov. 19, at Central Connecticut State** -- NEC game---=2.

Among them is QB Noel, who has won All-NEC first-team honors for three straight years but wasnt the preseason pick by the conference coaches (it was Duquesnes Dillon Buechel). It seems impossible for the Pioneers to replace leading receiver Dube, but they first want to run the ball with Imeokparia and Chavious. Fourth-year starters Rentz and Cottrell lead a defense which has big hitters. The focus has been on improving the pass defense as the Pioneers allowed over 238 passing yards per game last season. Sacred Hearts non-conference schedule isnt taxing -- it opens with three Pioneer Football League opponents -- so the Pioneers should get off to a solid start in 2016.SCHEDULE:Sept. 3, at StetsonSept. 10, ValparaisoSept. 17, MaristSept. 24, at Stony BrookOct. 1, at Wagner*Oct. 15, at CornellOct. 22, Robert Morris*Oct. 29, Saint Francis*Nov. 5, at Central Connecticut State*Nov. 12, at Duquesne*Nov. 19, Bryant** -- NEC game---=3.

Their matchup with Duquesne is at DeGol Field. Villarrial likes to play a lot of players, so the depth will pay off. Jerome will keep the secondary at a high level and the defense has a disruptive force in NT Nagaseu. On offense, QB Drayer (152-for-250, 1,977 yards, 15 TDs, 9 INTs) is highly experienced, and the Red Flash return their starting offensive line, anchored by Marks. The loss of All-NEC RB Dickson is tempered by the return of Bagley, a bruiser who was the conferences 2014 offensive rookie of the year. The Red Flash also have dominant special teams, although standout Geesey is coming off hip surgery. Like preseason favorite Duquesne, the Red Flash had a conference-high six selections on the NEC preseason team.SCHEDULE:Sept. 3, at MontanaSept. 10, at TowsonSept. 17, at ColumbiaSept. 24, at AlbanyOct. 1, MaloneOct. 8, at Robert Morris*Oct. 15, Bryant*Oct. 22, Duquesne*Oct. 29, at Sacred Heart*Nov. 12, Central Connecticut State*Nov. 19, at Wagner** -- NEC game---=4.

With only nine returning starters, they will need young players to fill key roles. Easton is coming off a season in which he led the NEC in passing yards and yards per game, but he wont have running back Ricardo McCray, the 2015 NEC offensive player of the year, around to keep defenses more honest. The Bulldogs should be solid defensively as they return three of their top four tacklers in LBs Kenney and Watson and FS Keenan, while Wingate made the NEC preseason team. The Bulldogs will make a Sept. 10 visit to Montana State -- the programs first-ever trip west of the Mississippi River.SCHEDULE:Sept. 3, MerrimackSept. 10, at Montana StateSept. 17, BrownSept. 24, Central Connecticut State*Oct. 1, MaineOct. 15, at Saint Francis*Oct. 22, Wagner*Oct. 29, at Duquesne*Nov. 5, Robert Morris*Nov. 12, at Coastal CarolinaNov. 19, at Sacred Heart** -- NEC game---=5. ROBERT MORRIS COLONIALS=LOCATION: Moon Township, PennsylvaniaSTADIUM: Joe Walton StadiumCOACH: John Banaszak (5-17 in two seasons at Robert Morris)LAST SEASON: 4-7 overall, 2-4 NEC (6th)STARTERS RETURNING: 14 (7 offense/7 defense)THREE KEY LOSSES: Forrest Mason, DE; Mike Stojkovic, ILB; Jake Tkach, ILBONE TO WATCH ON OFFENSE: Kyle Buss, WR, R-So.

They were among the best in the FCS against the pass last season and their 34 sacks were impressive. With Branch and Smigiera back to anchor the secondary, the Colonials expect similar success this year. But the offense needs improvement after it averaged only 14 points per game. It has a new coordinator in Mike Miller, who began his career with the Colonials under former coach Joe Walton and has 13 years of NFL experience. Barr figures to cut down on interceptions as a sophomore and has a terrific go-to target in Buss, the 2015 NEC offensive rookie of the year.

The mobile Pauldo shared time at quarterback as a freshman, but hes no longer in the program, leaving Dolegala to run the offense full-time. The Blue Devils like the ball in the hand of the versatile Nash, although the run game also is getting back Lytton, who was expected to be the starter last year but was injured in preseason camp. All-America CB Elmore, who racked up 18 passes defended, was lost to academics, which means Brown must steady the secondary. Bolling and LB LaGuerre are the defensive standouts. Improvement is vital because the Blue Devils have a tough non-conference schedule which includes James Madison, Coastal Carolina and Penn.SCHEDULE:Sept. 2, LafayetteSept. 10, at James MadisonSept. 17, Bowie StateSept. 24, at Bryant*Oct. 8, at PennOct. 15, Wagner*Oct. 22, at Coastal CarolinaOct. 29, at Robert Morris*Nov. 5, Sacred Heart*Nov. 12, at Saint Francis*Nov. 19, Duquesne** -- NEC game---=7.

Jr.; Randall May, LB, Jr.; Tim Hayes, CB, Sr.; Sterling Lowry, CB, So.; Kemani Howard, FS, Jr.; Bryan Rafano, P, Sr.OUTLOOK: The transition from former coach Walt Hameline to Houghtaling wasnt smooth last season as the Seawhawks dropped off from a 7-4 record and share of the NEC title in 2014. They werent the usual ball-control team and the defense struggled up the middle. Houghtaling thinks they have to play harder, but it shows in the preseason competition for playing time. Thomson (90-for-175, 1,085 yards, 8 TDs, 6 INTs) is the incumbent at quarterback, but hes been pushed by Long, a transfer from Syracuse. New offensive coordinator Rich Santangello will rely on fifth-year TE Owens for leadership as well as production. The defense seeks improvement after ranking at the bottom of the NEC. Harris is asked to lead a turnaround. With four of the first games at home, the Seahawks can envision a stronger start this season.SCHEDULE:Sept. 1, St. AnselmSept. 10, Concordia (Mich.)Sept. 24, at Boston CollegeOct. 1, Sacred Heart*Oct. 8, ColumbiaOct. 15, at Central Connecticut State*Oct. 22, at Bryant*Oct. 29, at MassachusettsNov. 5, Duquesne*Nov. 12, at Robert Morris*Nov. 19, Saint Francis** -- NEC game ' ' '
