It’s not so much that the Sounders were tired, though the first half saw a somewhat sluggish Sounders concede 11 minutes in, and they were easily the better team in the second half. But the starting 11 fielded was not their strongest, due in part to their preparation for Wednesday’s CONCACAF Champions League match. Consequently, Clint Dempsey wasn’t in the 18, Chad Marshall saw no minutes and Roman Torres was out at the half.

In Ivory Coast I spoke to one of the companies that buys cocoa. They are very concerned with child labour because, on top of feeling it’s wrong, they have a business argument: without the next generation of farmers properly trained and educated, they will not have secured cocoa supply in the future. Children in school, future farmers able to read and write and understand technology makes economic sense to them..

That a 3.2 fold increase. If this increase also applies to what refs now earn, they get around $39,000 for working the big game. So our guesstimate is something in the $30,000 to 50,000 range. His 21 field goals in 29 attempts offered one of the worst percentages (72.7) in football. Meanwhile, former Seahawks kicker Stephen Hauschka made 29 of 33 for 87.9 percent for Buffalo.

Toffoli, 25, recently hit triple digits in big league lamp lightings and ranks second on his team with 18 tallies.

Black women voters: Black women, who voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, showed this year that they are one of the Democratic Party’s strongest voting blocs. Their votes stopped a Trump backed candidate in Virginia’s gubernatorial race.

Too many lessons have been learnt the hard way about leaving one person in charge of every aspect of running a football club. We don’t like to think of clubs as businesses but that is what they basically are, multi million pound businesses. The Manager/Head Coach is in effect a head of department, just as the DoF and Commercial Manager will be heads of different departments..

“I was very certain that Tony would put his own stamp on the team in terms of how he approached every facet of the organization,” Polian said. “He did that immediately. How he dealt with players, dealt with personnel issues, set up training camp. As it turns out, however, gay men do not instantly turn into helpless piles of sprinkled pudding upon hearing the word “faggot.” Michael Sam knows what he’s getting into, and we really doubt overhearing some idiotic locker room talk will have any impact on his ability to play. Plus, purposely keeping a player off your team just because he’s gay won’t positively affect the NFL’s locker room culture. Those queens can get nasty, and then gay men just tip them a dollar afterward for their trouble..

Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown had this to say about the moves.”We’ve had a lot of guys come in and buy in and work their tails off to try to make the roster and we’re excited about the 53 guys we’ve chosen to be Cleveland Browns.

To see what we been able to do the last eight seasons has been special. It just been one day at a time. That what we always say: How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

Marcus Mariota, TEN, at Cleveland: Speaking of potential letdowns, Mariota likely has nowhere to go but down after completing 13 of 16 passes for 209 yards and four touchdowns in his NFL debut. He got the best of a limited and befuddled Buccaneers defense last week and put the fantasy hype train into high gear in emerging as a waiver wire darling this week. Those who landed him should be glad they did, but be careful: the Browns defense, which ranked No.

Not moving the puck well, at all. We not making crisp plays, the quick puck movement that gets (penalty killers) out of position. We not scissoring, we too stationary. I saw a rotating body of wind parallel to the ground. It was hard telling how big, because I am not sure how high or far I was from the circle of rotating wind.

As a result of the pass heavy offense, the Cal running backs had just 426 carries 104th in the country.
