  • Newcastle suffer early League Cup exit, Everton roll on

    first_imgNewcastle boss Rafa Benitez had been fiercely criticised for his negative approach in defeat to Chelsea on Sunday that left the Magpies with just one point from their opening three league games.Benitez made seven changes for the visit to the City Ground but those coming in did their case little good as Daryl Murphy headed the hosts in front inside two minutes.That looked like being enough for Forest, until Salomon Rondon registered his first Newcastle with practically the visitors’ first decent chance two minutes into stoppage time.However, Forest weren’t to be denied as Matty Cash and Gil Dias struck in six added minutes to reach the last 32.Everton got the job done much earlier as Gylfi Sigurdsson and a double from Dominic Calvert-Lewin eased Marco Silva’s men into the next round with a 3-1 win at Goodison.Watford may be joint top of the Premier League with three wins from three, but the Hornets also have impressive depth as Javi Gracia made 11 changes for a 2-0 victory at Reading.Isaac Success and Domingos Quina on his debut ensured it was a successful night for Gracia’s men.Millwall also reached round three after twice coming from behind to beat Plymouth 3-2 thanks to Aiden O’Brien’s 89th minute winner.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Salomon Rondon protested with the referee after Nottingham Forest scored their third goal momentsLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 29 – Newcastle’s miserable start to the season suffered another blow with a dramatic late 3-1 defeat to Championship side Nottingham Forest on Wednesday to crash out of the League Cup at the second round.There was no such strife for Premier League high flyers Everton and Watford, who continued their unbeaten starts to the campaign with victories over Rotherham and Reading respectively to make round three.last_img read more

  • Wayne Rooney hit by two-year ban after drink-drive guilty plea

Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  His legal team asked the judge to consider not imposing a community order because of his ongoing charitable work but he said he was “not convinced” that imposing a large fine “would have the same effect”.Rooney, who rejoined boyhood club Everton after 13 trophy-laden years at Manchester United in July, tweeted an apology to his 16.4 million followers.“Following today’s court hearing I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgement in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong,” Rooney said in a statement.“I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC. Now I want to apologise to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career.“Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service.”ADVERTISEMENT Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president UAAP Starting 5: Weeks 1 and 2 E.T. returns to earth, reunites with grown-up Elliott in new ad  LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong Citycenter_img View comments BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight He was stopped by police when driving a woman’s black Volkswagen Beetle at around 2:00 am (0100 GMT) on September 1 and later arrested and bailed.Stockport Magistrates’ Court was told a breathalyser test showed Rooney’s alcohol level was 104 microgrammes in 100 millilitres of breath.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThe drink-drive limit in England and Wales is 35 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath.Rooney, 31, was banned from driving for two years and ordered to perform 100 hours of unpaid work as part of a 12-month community order.

Charity workEarlier, Rooney entered court in a dark blue suit and black tie and sat in the public gallery next to his agent Paul Stretford.When asked how he pleaded to the charge that he drove under the influence of alcohol while over the prescribed limit, he replied guilty.Michael Rainford, defending, said Rooney accepted the facts of the prosecution case in full and highlighted his charity work.“He is not somebody who pays lip service to the charities as so many often do,” he said. “This is somebody who is actually hands-on with the work he carries out. It is something that is very close to his heart.”Following the hearing, the footballer left court with his lawyers again followed by a media scrum of TV cameras, press photographers and reporters.His entourage fought their way through the throng to a waiting people-carrier with tinted windows and Rooney was driven away.Everton manager Ronald Koeman said earlier this month the matter would be dealt with internally, adding that he was “disappointed” by the drink-driving charge.Rooney has been married to his high-school sweetheart Coleen since 2008 and they are expecting their fourth child.He was given a warm welcome at Old Trafford on his return to former club Manchester United on Sunday but it ended in disappointment with a 4-0 defeat for Everton.last_img read more

  • Roger Waters To Be Honored By Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America

    first_imgIraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the nation’s first and largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization representing veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, is proud to announce the honorees and participants for their Sixth Annual Heroes Gala on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.Taking place just two days after Veterans Day, with NBC’s Brian Williams serving as Master of Ceremonies once again, this year’s star-studded IAVA Heroes Gala is the premier event of New York’s Veterans Week.At this year’s Heroes Gala, IAVA is honoring Joan Ganz Cooney and Peter G. Peterson as recipients of IAVA’s 2012 Civilian Service Award. Through his work at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, as Chairman Emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations and as a board member of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, Mr. Peterson has used his decades long experience to raise awareness of America’s long term fiscal challenges while promoting nonpartisan solutions to ensure a better economic future, always keeping America’s veterans in the forefront of his thoughts. As one of the visionaries and founders behind the creation of Sesame Workshop, Mrs. Cooney created the dynamic and continually relevant environment of Sesame Street. Through Sesame Street’s powerful program, Mrs. Cooney has been a leader in helping frame the delicate issue of supporting children of military families through challenging transitions such as deployments, homecomings, a parent coming home changed due to a combat related injury and the death of a loved one. Individually, they have each achieved a great deal, but together they are inspirational leaders who have had a powerful and positive double impact on our community.IAVA is also excited to present Roger Waters (formerly of Pink Floyd) with the inaugural 2012 Artistic Leadership Award. This award was created to recognize individuals in the arts and entertainment industry whose leadership has heightened the visibility and awareness of veterans’ issues. Mr. Waters’ “Fallen Loved Ones” project was an integral part of his record-breaking tour “The Wall,” making him an important advocate and friend to the veteran community.“Nearly one million service members are returning home to face rising unemployment and suicide rates. Our commitment to serving these brave men and women who fought for our country is not merely charity, it’s an investment in our nation’s future. With over 200,000 Member Veterans and supporters and a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, IAVA’s programs are at the forefront of serving our nation’s veterans. This Veterans Week, the Heroes Gala is an opportunity to celebrate and support the New Greatest Generation,” said IAVA Founder and Chief Executive Officer Paul Rieckhoff.“IAVA is thrilled to have Brian Williams back for the fourth year in a row as Master of Ceremonies. Brian’s commitment to our mission and our community goes above and beyond. He’s always had IAVA’s back and we’re fortunate to have such a powerful advocate. Mrs. Cooney and Mr. Peterson have each made incredible contributions to countless new veterans and their families nationwide. We are humbled and thrilled to honor their tremendous dedication to our community with the IAVA’s 2012 Civilian Service Award. Roger Waters has ensured that millions never forget our fallen brothers and sisters. He is a legendary talent and creative force who has impacted audiences worldwide with his groundbreaking “Fallen Loved Ones” project as a part of “The Wall” tour.

  • And Now The Roy Awards For The Best NHL Playoff Goaltending Performances

    UPDATE (May 14, 7:28 a.m.): Game 7 between the Rangers and Capitals on Wednesday night featured more top-notch goaltending from Lundqvist (35 saves) and Holtby (37 saves). The Rangers won 2-1 — every game in the series was decided by one goal — and both goalies beat their combined save percentage for the series. Mike Richter1997NYRNJD5.236.7+1.9 Marc-Andre Fleury98.8-3.7-3.7 Most of the Roy winners in this category comport well with the conventional wisdom. Four of the top six goaltenders — Roy in 1993 and 2001, Thomas in 2011 and Jean-Sebastien Giguere in 2003 — also won the Conn Smythe Trophy for being the MVP of the NHL playoffs.Finally, the Roy for the best lifetime playoff performance goes to … Patrick Roy.Best Performances Marc-Andre Fleury2010PIT13.3-12.3-1.6 Patrick Lalime2002OTTPHI5.337.6+2.0 Chris Osgood127.53.3+4.2 Jaroslav Halak2010MTLWSH5.727.6+1.6 Henrik Lundqvist105.84.4+4.6 Martin Brodeur2003NJD24.810.7+2.6 102004Maple Leafs (Belfour)Senators (Lalime)7.9361.70+2.3 Curtis Joseph2001TOROTT4.238.5+1.6 Patrick Roy1996COLFLA4.735.4+1.7 71994Rangers (Richter)Devils (Brodeur)7.9291.96+2.6 Greg Millen1988STL10.0-15.8-1.6 Jean-Sebastien Giguere52.86.2+3.3 In the chart, MP/60 stands for minutes played divided by 60. Since a regulation NHL game is 60 minutes long, it essentially just means games played, although goalies will get extra credit for games that go to overtime.5Dominik Hasek, for instance, is credited with playing the equivalent of 8.1 games in the 1994 Sabres-Devils first-round series because one of the games went to four overtimes. The next column shows the goalie’s net change in win probability per 60 minutes played. Multiplying this number by MP/60 produces net wins — how many wins a goalie added or subtracted from his team relative to an average playoff goalie. That’s what we use to hand out Roys.So the Roy for best goaltending in a single playoff series goes to… Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins, for his performance in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final against the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks had been the NHL’s highest-scoring team in the regular season and launched more than 35 shots per game at Thomas. And yet he allowed only eight goals in the seven-game series, including a shutout in the final.Thomas is followed by his fellow Bruin, Tuukka Rask, who allowed just two goals against Sidney Crosby and the Penguins in the 2013 Eastern Conference finals. He was even more effective than Thomas on a per-shot basis, with a .985 save percentage. Perhaps he was too good for his own good, in fact — the Bruins swept the series, so he played substantially fewer minutes than Thomas. In third place is Ottawa’s Patrick Lalime, who allowed two goals in five games against the Philadelphia Flyers in 2002.The performance by Buffalo’s Dominik Hasek in the Sabres’ 1994 opening-round series against the New Jersey Devils ranks fourth, and Hasek also holds a couple of other distinctions. First, he wins the Roy for the best performance in an individual game, stopping all 70 New Jersey shots in a legendary four-overtime shutout in Game 6 of the series. And he and the Devils’ Martin Brodeur share the Roy for the best combined goaltending performance in a single series: Patrick Roy2001COL24.213.0+3.2 Jean-Sebastien Giguere2003MDAMIN4.537.2+1.7 From 1988 onward, Roy was 15 wins better than an average playoff goaltender, easily outdistancing second-place Ed Belfour. And that under-rates Roy, since it doesn’t give him credit for 1986, when Roy, then 20 years old, had a 1.92 postseason GAA in leading the Canadiens to the Stanley Cup. Roy also does really well by conventional playoff statistics — he had 151 career playoff wins, easily the best all-time — but he earned them.In other cases, however, the advanced stats provide some insight that isn’t as clear from traditional stats. While Brodeur had a considerably better career playoff GAA than Roy, for instance, he’s relatively far behind him in net wins, since the Devils’ neutral-zone trap prevented him from facing all that many shots and since he played in a low-scoring era.Meanwhile, the Penguins’ Marc-Andre Fleury ranks as the third-worst playoff goaltender since 1988 despite a winning (53-44) career playoff record. That’s because it’s easy to win games when you have Crosby scoring goals for you. Our support-neutral stat detects that Fleury really hasn’t been much good in the playoffs.Lundqvist, meanwhile, ranks as the sixth-best playoff goaltender since 1988, while Holtby ranks ninth — despite being in just his fifth NHL season. After Wednesday night, one of them will have the chance to add to his legend, while the other will have plenty of time to watch Patrick Roy clips on YouTube.

So far, every game in the series has been decided by one goal, with Lundqvist and Holtby combining for a 1.80 goals against average (GAA) and a .943 save percentage.Lundqvist and Holtby have been among the better playoff goalies in recent NHL history, and the Rangers-Caps series has been in the upper echelon of goaltending battles. But a few have been even better. In their honor, we’re going to be handing out some Roy Awards for the best postseason goaltending performances since 1988. (Why are they called Roy Awards? That will become clear in a moment.)How to measure goaltending success is a subject of debate among hockey geeks. But here’s one approach, which is inspired by Baseball Prospectus’s Support Neutral Win-Loss (SNWL), a statistic designed to evaluate baseball pitchers. As SNWL seeks to evaluate pitchers while controlling for their run support, our goalie statistic will seek to give goaltenders credit for wins and losses without being biased toward those goalies who have better offenses scoring goals for them. It will also control for the number of shots the goaltenders faced and the quality of their opponents. Allowing three goals — as Lundqvist did Sunday — is not that impressive, but it looks a lot better when you consider he faced 45 shots against the Capitals, who have one of the NHL’s best offenses.Here’s how it works. I downloaded data from Hockey-Reference.com on all NHL playoff games since 1988. (Hockey-Reference, as terrific as it is, doesn’t have detailed game-by-game data before then.) For each game, I compared each goalie’s actual GAA against a benchmark GAA that represents how you’d expect an average playoff goalie to perform under the same circumstances. The benchmark GAA is calculated1Via a linear regression analysis. based on the number of shots the goalie faced, his opponent’s goal-scoring and shooting percentage during the regular season, and whether he was playing at home or on the road. During Friday’s Game 5, for instance — with the Rangers playing at home and the Capitals generating relatively few shots — Lundqvist’s benchmark GAA was 2.17. But on Sunday, on the road and with the Caps taking 45 shots on goal, his benchmark GAA was 3.56.The next step is to translate the benchmark GAA and the goalie’s actual GAA into win probabilities,2Win probabilities are calculated using a Poisson distribution. assuming that the goalie had average offensive support.3Average offensive support is calculated based on leaguewide goal scoring per game during the NHL regular season, adjusted slightly downward because playoff games are lower-scoring on average. For Friday’s Game 5, for instance, Lundqvist’s benchmark 2.17 GAA translates into a 52 percent win probability. But Lundqvist’s actual performance, allowing just one goal, raised the Rangers’ win probability to 80 percent. So Lundqvist gets credit for +0.28 net wins, the difference between the two figures. (Actually, he gets credit for slightly more than that, since the game went to overtime.)4More specifically, Lundqvist is credited with +0.28 wins per 60 minutes of ice time. Since he was actually on the ice for 69 minutes, counting overtime, the number is scaled up proportionately to +0.32 wins.First up, here are the Roys for goaltending in a single playoff series:Best Performances GOALIEMP/60NET CHANGE IN WIN % PER 60 MPNET WINS Patrick Roy227.7+6.6%+15.0 Dan Cloutier22.7-16.9-3.8 Patrick Roy1989MTL20.114.7+3.0 Trevor Kidd1995CGYSJS7.2-24.3-1.8 Ron Hextall1988PHIWSH6.3-25.6-1.6  Worst Performances Patrick Roy1993MTL21.6+19.6%+4.2 Worst Performances John Vanbiesbrouck47.511.3+5.4 Dan Cloutier2003VAN13.9-17.9%-2.5 COMBINED STATS Trevor Kidd1995CGY7.2-24.3-1.8 Kirk McLean1994VAN25.711.8+3.0 Why does that Devils-Sabres series rank so highly? Hasek and Brodeur’s conventional statistics were great, but not obviously better than some other goaltending duels, like that between the Canucks’ Roberto Luongo and the Dallas Stars’ Marty Turco in 2007. One reason is because of that quadruple overtime game, which made the matchup the equivalent of an eight-game series. But another is because the series was played in 1994, when goal-scoring was about 20 percent higher than it is now. So it stands out more by comparison.The current Rangers-Caps series ranks as the 17th-best goalie duel so far: Holtby has contributed 1.0 net wins and Lundqvist 0.8, for a combined 1.8. It could plausibly move into the top 10 if Game 7 is low-scoring.We can also award a Roy for the best goaltending in a single playoff season. It goes to … Patrick Roy, who added 4.2 wins in the 1993 NHL playoffs. Roy’s performance ranks highly in part because it came against some high-flying offenses. His playoff opponents — the Nordiques, Sabres, Islanders and Kings — had each averaged about four goals per game during the regular season.Best Performances Tuukka Rask2013BOSPIT4.647.2+2.2 Felix Potvin1993TORSTL7.721.5+1.7 172015Rangers (Lundqvist)Capitals (Holtby)6+.9431.80+1.8 81999Maple Leafs (Joseph)Flyers (Vanbiesbrouck)6.9461.46+2.3 Jean-Sebastien Giguere2003MDADET4.834.8+1.7 Mike Vernon1997DET20.512.8+2.6 GOALIEYEARTEAMMP/60NET CHANGE IN WIN % PER 60 MPNET WINS Worst Performances GOALIEYEARTEAMOPP.MP/60NET CHANGE IN WIN % PER 60 MPNET WINS GOALIEYEARTEAMOPP.MP/60NET CHANGE IN WIN % PER 60 MPNET WINS Craig Anderson26.812.3+3.3 Dominik Hasek1994BUFNJD8.124.2+2.0 Corey Crawford2014CHILAK7.4-27.8-2.1 GOALIEYEARTEAMMP/60NET CHANGE IN WIN % PER 60 MPNET WINS Tuukka Rask50.85.9+3.0 Tim Thomas2011BOS25.712.5+3.2 92002Hurricanes (Irbe)Maple Leafs (Joseph)6.9501.25+2.3 Ed Belfour165.76.3+10.4 Arturs Irbe2002CARTOR6.427.9+1.8 Kelly Hrudey65.3-6.8%-4.5 Martin Brodeur211.93.6+7.7 Antti Niemi61.0-4.5-2.8 SEASONSERIES WINNER (MAIN GOALIE)SERIES LOSER (MAIN GOALIE)GAMESSAVE%GAANET GT WINS 22007Canucks (Luongo)Stars (Turco)7.9511.36+2.9 SEASONHIGHER SEED (MAIN GOALIE)LOWER SEED (MAIN GOALIE)GAMESSAVE%GAANET GT WINS Curtis Joseph135.12.6+3.5 GOALIEMP/60NET CHANGE IN WIN % PER 60 MPNET WINS Dominik Hasek1999BUF20.312.4+2.5 Dan Cloutier2003VANMIN6.9-31.3%-2.2 Olaf Kolzig46.66.9+3.2 Martin Brodeur1995NJD20.413.3+2.7 Curtis Joseph1999TORBUF4.6-33.2-1.5 John Vanbiesbrouck1996FLAPIT7.026.9+1.9 Sean Burke35.8-9.1-3.2 Tim Thomas51.98.3+4.3 Dominik Hasek121.96.2+7.6 Patrick Roy1996COL24.211.6+2.8 Jonathan Quick2012LAK20.614.1+2.9 Martin Brodeur1994NJD19.513.6+2.6 read more

  • Football JT Barretts improving accuracy tight end most improved position and more

    Nine spring practices have come and gone for the Ohio State football team and the depth chart appears more definite just a week-and-a-half before the spring game.Coach Urban Meyer discussed the ongoing position battles and some standout performers in spring practice, while also revealing that sophomore linebacker Malik Harrison has undergone shoulder surgery and will miss the remainder of the spring. Meyer added that Harrison has been “having a tremendous spring” and “will compete for a starting spot” once he is healthy again.Here are five takeaways from Meyer’s Tuesday’s press conference.Barrett improving accuracyComing off a season where redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett completed his lowest percentage of passes in his career, Barrett has been working with co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day on improving his accuracy and trying to rediscover the success he found in his redshirt freshman season.Last season, Barrett completed just 61.8 percent of passes, 1.5 percent worse than his 2015 season and 2.8 percent less than his redshirt freshman season.“I thought his freshman year, he was a very accurate player and the last two years weren’t quite as accurate,” Meyer said. “Our deep ball percentage was the best that it’s been since we’ve been here last week. We were charting everything and JT and the boys did a really good job. We didn’t catch all of them, but as far as accuracy, it was almost something like 90 percent and that’s what we’re looking for.”Burrow leading the race for backup quarterbackThere was never really a competition for the starting quarterback job with Barrett’s return, but Meyer offered insight on the battle for the No. 2 at the position.Redshirt sophomore Joe Burrow currently stands out among the quarterbacks to serve as Barrett’s backup in the upcoming season, but freshman quarterback Tate Martell is still taking plenty of reps, Meyer said.“I’d say Joe is ahead of them, but they’re both getting reps,” he said. “Tate had his best day, too, the other day in the scrimmage, so it’s good competition there and that brings out the best in people. We all know what happened a couple years ago where all of a sudden someone taps you on the shoulder and says, ‘You’re the starter. Go beat Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game.’ And they did it. So that position is a key guy.”Offensive-line recruiting has ‘missed’ in the pastPart of the reason the offense struggled to produce at its same level in 2016 was because of an offensive line that did not provide the same level of pass protection that it had in years past.Meyer said that two of his offensive-line classes “didn’t turn out” the way he had hoped, but that he has a trio of offensive lineman who are really coming along in practice and should be able to help improve the play of the line in 2017 .“Yes we have (missed a few). More than a few. You can’t do that. That’s what happens is you have a year like we did last year where guys — you know, true freshmen should have not played then,” Meyer said. “Demetrius Knox is running with the ones and Malcolm Pridgeon is still learning the offense, but Matt Burrell is probably one of the most improved offensive lineman at this point and the other guys are much improved as well. Very pleased with where we are at on the offensive line.”Tight end is most improved position in spring practicesThere has been improvement in the offensive line and the quarterbacks so far, but the position that has stepped up its game in spring the most has been the tight ends, Meyer said.Even with senior tight end Marcus Baugh missing spring practice so far with offseason shoulder surgery, the tight end position has looked promising thus far and has been “the most improved position on the team.”“A.J. Alexander is really coming on and Luke Farrell is a little bit ahead of Jake Hausmann, but they’re both very comparable,” Meyer said.Defensive line will be backbone of the teamThe defensive line will be returning a lot of stars from last season, including all defensive ends and the team will count on them to once again be the backbone of the defense in the upcoming season.With a returning group of defensive ends that include Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year Tyquan Lewis, redshirt junior Sam Hubbard, sophomore Nick Bosa and senior Jalyn Holmes, the defensive line will be “as good as anybody in America,” Meyer said. “I think as of right now, it’s the strength of our team on defense,” Meyer said. “Dre’Mont Jones is really turning into a fine player here for us. On the other side, we’re really hoping Tracy Sprinkle can give us some depth and be the guy that we thought he was going to be before he got hurt.”Meyer added that Hubbard, who finished third on the team in sacks and second in quarterback hits, is “the definition of elite” and works as hard as anybody to perfect his craft.“We call it 10-80-10 around here and it’s elite self discipline, self respect and incredible work ethic, that’s how you identify the characteristics of an elite player and he’s as elite as I’ve ever been around,” Meyer said. Other notes:A battle for the position of kicker will continue on over the remainder of the spring and the summer between junior kicker Sean Nuernberger and recruit Blake Haubeil, Meyer said, with Nuernberger in “much better shape than he’s ever been,” though he will still have to win over the spot.Sophomore wide receiver Binjimen Victor has “a bit of a sore shoulder,” Meyer said, but he’s making progress and has the talent to do “anything he wants.”Meyer said that senior safety Damon Webb is “a much improved player than he was in the spring” and credited Webb’s success to recent weight loss read more
