Warren Gatland has two aims on this tour. The obvious one is to beat the All Blacks, but the other is to win over the New Zealanders. Back in February, Gatland said that he wanted to repair the damage done when the British & Irish Lions last came here, in 2005. Clive Woodward’s side came across as arrogant and, hidden away in hotel rooms or ring-fenced in training grounds, operating at a far remove from the country they were Eagles Youth Jersey touring, managed to alienate the public. “We are trying to go there and mend some stuff from 2005,” Gatland said. “We want to engage with the community, to play some good rugby, we want to get the public on our side. We want to be great tourists.” You guess Gatland has a third, more personal, ambition too, one left unstated. He was born and raised in Hamilton and his family still live there, but he, away in Wales for most of the year, seems to have an exile’s desire to impress his own. “A savage loves his native shores,” he said before the tour. “I am a very proud Kiwi, desperate to be successful back home against the All Blacks.” New Zealanders tend to think that they have the best of rugby right here and they don’t much reckon deeds achieved on the other side of the world. For all Gatland’s good intentions, he could not help but provoke the local players and coaches. He has called the New Zealanders out for illegal scrummaging, illegal blocking, and dangerous play. They have not taken kindly to his criticism. Whether Gatland was right or not, high-hat tactics do not go over well when your team have just been beaten 30-15. Steve Hansen’s comebacks have not been any better. Only, Hansen’s team are on top, which makes him a tough man to talk down to. So when Hansen described Gatland as desperate on Monday, the New Zealand Herald illustrated his remarks with a full-page cartoon of Gatland dressed as a clown. It was the third time they have pulled this stunt, the second with Gatland, and it has not got any funnier. It makes them look like the loudmouth in the corner, repeating the joke over and again because they do not understand that nobody laughed first time http://www.nikeeaglesjerseysshop.com/allen-barbre-jersey-for-sale-c-56.html around. In the end then, it is best to ignore them. That is exactly what Gatland did. “I couldn’t give a toss,” he said on Tuesday. Gatland insists he has not heard or read what Hansen said. Only that, he said with a wry smile: “I heard that he rang up a radio station, I thought that was quite unusual for an international coach.” The All Blacks insist that the radio interview was pre-arranged. “As a Kiwi you’d like it if, when you came home, things would be a little more positive from one or two members of the Men's Nike Denver Broncos #99 Adam Gotsis Elite Orange Rush NFL Jersey media. That hasn’t happened. But you can’t let that get to you – you have to take it on the chin.” His chin must sting. The Lions can afford to lose this series. Rugby fans will still love them. But Gatland does not have that much slack, here in New Zealand at least. Which is why it was good to hear from a man willing to cut him some, the All Blacks assistant coach Ian Foster. He and Gatland go way back. They played rugby together for Waikato, where Foster bossed the backs, Gatland the pack, cricket together for Northern Brent Burns Youth Jersey District’s U19 team, and coached together, for a season, at the Chiefs. They were even euchre partners. These days, Foster lives 500 metres down the road from Gatland’s family. All this noise, Foster said, “is just part of the environment when you play a big series”, and, he added, this series is as big as they come. “I guess we probably give a little bit, they give a little bit, and that’s all part of things when stakes are high. So he’s doing what he thinks he needs to do to prepare his team and we’ll do what we need to do,” he said. “There’s a lot at stake. Everyone is looking for an edge. People are just trying to find that edge in different sorts of ways. I wouldn’t read too much more into it than just that.” Once the series is over, Foster says he hopes he, Gatland, and the other coaches will share a beer or two. “Everyone is trying to put everything on the line, everyone is trying to get an edge or upset the other team in whatever way it is, but at the end of the day, we’ll go hammer and tongs at each other and at the end of the third Test we’ll sit down and have a quiet beer and have a good yak about it. You understand the pressures everyone’s under when you’re doing http://www.authenticsanjosesharks.com/authentic-brent-burns-jersey similar jobs. He’s doing what he thinks is best for his team. We’re doing what we think is best for our team, but it’s important we catch up and have a yarn to people as mates.” Foster came across as honest, measured, calm and respectful. All qualities you might try to present if you were auditioning to be the All Blacks’ head coach. And here’s the thing. Gatland has made no secret that he has designs on that job when he finishes with Wales in 2019. If it does nothing else, that a national paper painted him as a clown gives you an idea of his chances. Foster, on the other hand, is reckoned to be one of the most likely contenders to succeed Hansen when he does stand down.

Knicks president Phil Jackson said last week Carmelo Anthony prefers to stay a Knick. Reportedly, he would just as soon be LeBron James’ running mate with the Cavaliers. An ESPN report stated Tuesday that Anthony’s agents have approached the Knicks about getting waived via a buyout in order to sign as a free agent Sabres Jersey with the Cavaliers, and got rebuffed. It is hardly a secret James would love Anthony on the roster. Nevertheless, the mixed messages coming from the Anthony camp is confusing. The same report stated Anthony’s preference is to remain a Knick — which corresponds to what Jackson said. But the allure of James and his former Knicks buddies J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert have become enticing. A source confirmed the Knicks are aware Anthony prefers getting released rather than agreeing to a trade, even if he would lose a trade-kicker bonus. Anthony understands the Cavaliers don’t have the assets to make a deal for him, and this way he can add depth to the Eastern http://www.authenticsanjosesharks.com Conference champions without taking away a major piece such as Kevin Love, who is being dangled for Paul George. According to a source, Jackson’s stance is he will not give up Anthony without gaining an asset or two and remains determined to find a trade partner. After all, Anthony, 33, is just a few months older than James. The Knicks have not entirely ruled out the stretch provision with Anthony, which would give them an extra $15.4 million in cap space in spreading his $54.1 million contract over five years. But the Knicks, according to a source, would consider that maneuver Men's Nike Game Alfred Blue Houston Texans Red Jersey: NFL #28 Alternate only as “an asset’’ if it means the extra cap savings definitively would net them a star player. “That’s unlikely,’’ the source said. Otherwise, the cap space is an abstract asset in their eyes, not to mention Anthony would be on the books for five years in the stretch scenario. Jackson desperately is trying to rebuild and develop young players. One last-resort option is to try to play Anthony off the bench and give larger roles to the younger players. Anthony is going through a separation from his wife, La La. The issue of being away from his 10-year-old son, Kiyan, came up on a talk show Tuesday. La La indicated he very well may be elsewhere but hopefully close by. “The most important thing with that is just to stay close to Kiyan,” La La said on “The Wendy Williams Show.” “That’s my priority, that’s his priority. So wherever he ends up, of course we want him to be happy.” The Anthony stalemate, along with the Kristaps Porzingis cold war, Derrick Rose’s uncertain http://www.authenticsabresprostore.com/ future and a modicum of cap space entering Saturday’s free-agency period has left the franchise in a chaotic state — even for the Knicks. The brass, coaches and the summer-league team hit Orlando on Wednesday for its first practice. Last July, when the Knicks came to the franchise summer league, optimism abounded. Fresh off the Rose blockbuster, Jackson met with Joakim Noah and Courtney Lee in Disney City and signed them to lucrative deals. Porzingis visited Orlando practice site to meet new coach Jeff Hornacek, hugging him in the Authentic San Jose Sharks Womens Jersey hallway and was positively glowing. One year later, nobody knows which way is up, and Anthony doesn’t seem certain if he wants to be a Knick or Cavalier.

The British & Irish Lions’ final midweek game of their 2017 tour is shaping up to be a collector’s item. As things stand there are set to be only eight matches on the 2021 itinerary in South Africa to permit extra preparation time and to assist player welfare, with no further provincial Andrew Luck Womens Jersey fixtures once the Test series commences. It potentially gives the management one less pre-Test headache but the consequences of shrinking the present 10-match schedule could be unexpectedly profound. Only five warm-up games and three Tests could mean a squad member outside the first-choice lineup featuring only twice in six weeks, with scant http://www.indianapoliscoltsauthorizedstore.com/barkevious-mingo-jersey chance to stake a claim for Test recognition. The whole mass emotional buy-in, competitive buzz and shared brotherhood that makes a Lions tour so special risks being fatally compromised. At some stage it will be fascinating to hear from the unused temporary cover players bussed in by Warren Gatland whether their experience proved entirely fulfilling. So far only Scotland’s Allan Dell has actually made it on to the pitch, with the other five – Kristian Dacey, Tomas Francis, Cory Hill, Gareth Davies and Finn Russell – still waiting to be officially classified as Lions. All are due to leave the squad after the fixture against the Hurricanes, having spent just over a week in a weird twilight zone, shadow Lions in practice but not in status. While a shorter tour would lessen the need for such selectorial contortions in future, it might be an idea if the game’s power brokers approached players such as Courtney Lawes for their first-hand opinions. Lawes has been among the most forceful Lions forwards out here but an unlucky bang to the head against the Highlanders has left him playing a frustrating game of catch-up. Without this Cardinals Authentic Jersey Hurricanes game, or its equivalent, he would be reduced to holding tackle bags for the tour’s final fortnight. As it is the Northampton forward still has an opportunity, if he grasps it, of featuring in the 23 for the second Test on Saturday when the Lions will need all the extra physicality they can muster in the starting lineup and on the bench. That same theme was reinforced by the forwards coach Steve Borthwick and the centre Robbie Henshaw after the Lions’ captain’s run at Jerry Collins Stadium, the scenic ground just north of Wellington where the much-missed ex-All Black flanker started his club career. “We just need to take it to another level this week,” Henshaw said. “We all know we need to be better but we’ve got the players to do that. It’s an attitude more than an action and that mentality will be key.” Henshaw also agrees with Gatland, that the match officials should keep a sharp eye out for opponents who target the exposed standing leg of his Irish team-mate Conor Murray after he puts up a box-kick. “If the guy’s clearly going for a block down and going for the ball and follows through and hits http://www.arizonacardinalsauthorizedstore.com/a-q--shipley-jersey the player that’s not his fault,” Henshaw said. “But if he’s nowhere near the ball and he’s hit our guy off the ball, it needs to be looked at. The referees might look at it in detail and see but at the moment we’re OK about it. We know teams are going after our key players to put them under pressure and to try to shut them down.” Last November’s rugged game between Ireland and the All Blacks in Dublin, when the 24-year-old’s participation was ended prematurely by a heavy tackle from Sam Cane, also underlined just how narrow the line is between legitimate force and unacceptable on-field Men's Nike Elite Alfred Blue Houston Texans Green Jersey: NFL Salute to Service #28 behaviour. “We know how physical they are as a team, it’s a Test match,” Henshaw said. “For us, physicality is also one of the fundamental components in rugby. Everyone uses it in abundance. I don’t think they take it too far. “Sometimes in the moment people may get their entry wrong, stick out an arm and hit someone high. It’s not intentional and people make mistakes but obviously it’s down to the officials what happens on the pitch and needs to be taken care of.”

Didi Gregorius has improved yet again. He is a better offensive player than ever and steadier on defense. His acquisition stands as one of the best of Brian Cashman’s tenure Cam Neely Jersey Womens Jersey because a) the cost was Shane Greene, who has turned into a good setup man for the Tigers, but you would turn a good setup man into a prime-aged shortstop 365 days a year; b) Gregorius has been cost-effective at a time when the Yankees are eyeballing payroll in a much more bottom-line way; and c) Gregorius has handled being the successor to Derek Jeter, who celebrated his 43rd birthday Monday. Yet as good as Gregorius is — and he is probably the second-best overall Yankee after Aaron Judge — he pretty much has no chance of being an All-Star in 2017 and maybe ever unless there is a spate of injuries. That speaks to the quality at shortstop in the American League. The AL voting totals were made public Monday for the last time before the team is announced http://www.officialbostonbruins.com/Adidas-Cam-Neely-Jersey over the weekend. Gregorius is in third, but he had half the votes of leader Carlos Correa and also trailed second-place Francisco Lindor by more than half a million votes. Correa is 22 and Lindor is 23. Both have much higher profiles nationally than Gregorius has — Correa was a No. 1 overall pick in the draft, and Lindor was a breakout star during last year’s postseason. But Gregorius’ chances of being an All-Star are hurt by more than that. This season, rather than 36 players per team, there will be 32, limiting the number of All-Star reserves. That also will curtail the number of Yankees who will be selected. Judge is a shoo-in, others such as Dellin Betances and Starlin Castro are likely, and Gary Sanchez, Brett Gardner and Luis Severino are possibilities. And then there is just the overall quality of shortstops in the AL, now and into the future. Boston’s Xander Bogaerts is 24, and was tied with Houston’s Correa for the lead among AL shortstops in Fangraphs’ version of Wins Above Replacement while hitting .319. Andrelton Simmons, like Gregorius a 27-year-old shortstop from Curacao, is generally considered the best defensive shortstop in the game, and is having his best offensive season with seven homers, 13 steals and a .280 average. Seattle’s Jean Segura, also 27, is hitting .330. Texas’ Elvis Andrus, 28, has seven homers, 18 steals and is hitting .293. None of these players is close to free agency, so you can see how Gregorius could excel and Francois Beauchemin Jersey never sniff an All-Star Game, though he is in the midst of a third straight season of raising his OPS by at least 50 points while convincing the Yankees to teach all of the talented shortstops in their system — such as Gleyber Torres, Tyler Wade and Jorge Mateo — how to play another position. In addition, Gregorius has demonstrated his marked improvement against lefties last year was no fluke by hitting .364 with an .871 OPS off southpaws this year. Because he missed the first month with a shoulder injury, Gregorius was still about a week to 10 days of at-bats away from qualifying for the batting title. But going into Monday, Gregorius is hitting .312 – only Segura and Bogaerts were better among AL shortstops. He has an .810 OPS – topped by Correa, Bogaerts and Segura, who because of injury also was just shy of qualifying http://www.officialcoloradoavalanche.com/Adidas-Carl-Soderberg-Jersey for the batting tittle. Perhaps most interesting was that in Fangraphs’ formula for defense, which relies heavily on range, Gregorius was the 10th-best fielder in the majors. Detroit’s Jose Iglesias was the only shortstop ahead of him, while Simmons was an eyelash behind him. It all speaks to Gregorius growing into a star — though perhaps never an All-Star.http://www.facecool.com/profiles/blogs/test-match-animals-can-give-all-blacks-a-frighthttp://garajgt.com/forum/topic/52865http://newmediavault.ning.com/profiles/blogs/test-match-animals-can-give-all-blacks-a-frighthttp://www.betogether.org.uk/groups/1691#sthash.6IHtJaAx.zSigM0FF.dpbshttp://seriallink.com.br/forum/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=6471#.WU4FY-uGPow

Lots of people would care to do so since Legends add a fantastic dimension to the Game. In the course of the Switch console reveal, EA took the stage and announced that it's engaged on a FIFA game for the console. Should you haven't heard, FIFA 18 is coming to the Nintendo Change. To this point we feel really good about it," EA CEO Andrew Wilson stated of the Switch (by way of VG 24/7). "We proceed to be bullish on it and are taking a look at other titles that we'd bring to the Switch. Effectively, both consoles have good points and bad factors. And we have now extra console bundle options under. Others would possibly offer you a brief introduction before asking you to go to the website for more info. Pacing, for example, is often a giant one. A nook kick is taken from one of many 4 corners of the sphere, depending on the place the ball went out of bounds. A lot of the games can be found online at an incredible low cost, and you can get them simply.

For the past several years EA and Microsoft partnered up for fifa 18 coins releases delivering FIFA Legends to Xbox house owners, with no access to PS4 gamers. How Much Does the FIFA 18 ICON Edition Price? Future support from EA for Swap will probably depend on how well FIFA performs. USD) and effectively worth it. The Nintendo Switch's inner reminiscence is simply 32GB, meaning that even when console homeowners deleted every part off of it, there nonetheless wouldn't be sufficient room. Mode fixed it. But, we nonetheless need extra features to be added in FIFA 18 The Journey to essentially make it a "new mode". Although the massive occasion continues to be 18 months away, a protracted and grueling qualification course of has already begun. There may be a lot more to be added upon the new FIFA seems to be, and absolutely there have been rather a lot of work performed to get the improvised and new FIFA version.

We would admire your response to the next questions, as well as any extra data you wish to offer. Manchester United come sailing in Cheap FIFA 18 Coins as the most profitable team in all English football competitions with an unprecedented fifty five titles, winning 31 of them underneath Sir Alex Ferguson. My very own country has won it 5 instances before and are at present 29th – Northern Ireland. Are there any tools to know what sort of MUT lineups your teammates have and thus, know who has the better lineup for offense, for instance? Right here in the US, there are outside and indoor leagues for individuals of all ages and skill levels. FIFA 18 is almost right here – so anticipate pre-orders to start imminently. FIFA 18 IN Virtual Actuality! Nintendo Swap will be getting their very own construct of the game which will probably be titled EA Sports FIFA. It's not that game downsized. The Game has nonetheless to adopt so many options form FM and only this integration may also make Game the best model of it. If you find yourself in search of a excessive motion-packed video game for your PS4 console, you possibly can positively strive playing Mafia III.

On the same day Tim Tebow was promoted to Single-A St. Lucie, they finished off a three-game sweep of the pitiful Giants with an 8-2 victory at AT&T Park on Sunday. If not for the first leg of the trip and a four-game sweep at the hands of the mighty Dodgers, the Mets might be in a better mindset. The Mets are in the patsies part of their schedule with an off-day Monday and then a three-game series against the Marlins in Miami, followed by a three-game series against the Phillies at Citi Field. They need to keep the sweeps Francisco Cervelli Youth Jersey going to have a chance to get back to .500. Like the promotion of Tebow, a sweep of the Giants does not mean much. Now, at least, the Mets get to sell more Tebow jerseys in Florida. The biggest plus of the day were trade chips Jay Bruce bashing his 20th home run and Curtis Granderson his 10th, a splash shot into McCovey Cove. As for the Mets 34-41 record, this is the bottom line. Against the three teams leading their respective divisions in the National League — the Nationals, Brewers and Dodgers — and the one wild-card team they have faced — the Diamondbacks, they have http://www.authenticpittsburghpirates.com/Francisco-Cervelli-Jersey yet to play the Rockies — the Mets’ record is 5-19. That number tells you all you need to know about where the 2017 Mets stand. They have five wins and 19 losses against teams that would make the postseason. Bruce is a veteran who knows the score. “We still need to play great baseball to have a chance,’’ Bruce said. “We just have to play well and see what happens.’’ Even on a day the Mets got some well-pitched innings by Rafael Montero and the first two home run game of catcher Rene Rivera’s career, there was an injury concern. Michael Conforto was drilled with a pitch on his left hand in the fifth and left the game an inning Adidas Brock Nelson Authentic Jersey later with a contusion. X-rays were negative. Conforto was in left field with Yoenis Cespedes getting the day off to rest his weary legs. Injuries are part of the Mets and when Terry Collins was asked about the club’s injuries again he offered this: “We came into [last] season, Sports Illustrated had those five guys on the cover. I don’t even know where they all are right now.” Noah Syndergaard, Jeurys Familia and Matt Harvey are all down, of course. The Mets are hoping Conforto is OK to play Tuesday because Collins was planning to give the red-hot Granderson the day off. Injuries and terrible play have put the Mets in the hole they are in and they simply don’t measure up to the better teams. Most of the National League is mediocre at best and there truly are some dreadful teams such as the Giants, Padres and Phillies. The Mets went into http://www.authenticnewyorkislanders.com/authentic-billy-smith-jersey action Sunday with a better record than only four teams, those three lost causes and the Reds. If the Mets had not swept the Giants, who have fallen deeper into the abyss than the Mets after beating them in the wild-card game in October, that would have been an upset. Asked what he views as Tebow’s ceiling, Alderson said, “I don’t think about his ceiling. There was a chance that he would completely bomb in spring Men's Brandon Ingram Authentic White Adidas Jersey: NBA Los Angeles Lakers #14 2016-2017 Christmas Day training, that didn’t happen.’’ Tebow is now back in Florida where he is a living legend. Alderson said Tebow has been “outstanding’’ in the clubhouse. “There’s been nothing but positives and I expect that will continue at St. Lucie as well,” the GM said. After the debacle in Los Angeles, Alderson and the Mets are looking for any positives, no matter how small, they can find these days.

Lewis Hamilton has branded his Formula One world championship rival Sebastian Vettel a disgrace after the German Dee Gordon Authentic Jersey deliberately drove into him at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Hamilton demanded that, if they are to clash, they should do so like “men” outside the car. Hamilton’s Mercedes was leading the race in Baku and was behind the safety car just before the restart when Vettel’s Ferrari hit him from behind. An angry Vettel, believing Hamilton had braked deliberately and sparked the collision, then drew level and swerved into the side of the British driver’s car. “Driving alongside and deliberately driving into a driver and getting away scot?free pretty much – he still came away with fourth – I think that’s a disgrace,” Hamilton said. “I think he disgraced himself today, to be honest.” Hamilton finished one place back in fifth and said: “If he wants to prove that he’s a man, I think he should do it out of the car face to face. I think driving dangerously which can put another driver at risk – luckily we were going slow – but if we were going fast it could have been a lot worse. Imagine all the young kids that are watching http://www.authenticmiamimarlins.com/Dee-Gordon-Jersey Formula One today and see that kind of behaviour from a four-time world champion. I think that says it all.” F1: Ricciardo wins Azerbaijan Grand Prix after Hamilton and Vettel clash – as it happened Daniel Ricciardo stormed through from 10th on the grid to win a dramatic and unpredictable Azerbaijan Grand Prix, with Valtteri Bottas second and Lance Stroll third Read more Vettel insisted he had not been at fault, although the stewards gave him a 10?second stop-go penalty for dangerous driving. “It was quite obvious,” he said. “I didn’t run into the back of him on purpose. I damaged my wing, I think he had a little bit of damage as well. Nothing that would have impacted on the race. It’s just not the way to do it. I think it was very clear. In the end we’re racing as men. I don’t have a radio to him. If I get a penalty, then we should both get a penalty.” He said he had not intended to hit Hamilton when he drew alongside him. “We had a little contact, but I drove alongside him mostly to raise my hand. I did not give him the finger. I just wanted to tell Adidas Cam Neely Authentic Jersey him, because I can’t literally talk to him, that what he did was not right.” Hamilton strongly rejected the claim he had brake-tested the Ferrari driver. “I think it’s a misjudgment from him to blame it on the car in front,” he said. “Some people don’t like to own up to their own mistakes.” This season is the first in which the two drivers have competed in closely matched cars in Formula One and up until now their relationship has been marked by a friendly, mutual respect. With Hamilton clearly aggrieved and Vettel having extended his title lead to 14 points, that may be hard to maintain over the next 12 meetings, given Hamilton’s scathing response. “Ultimately what happened was disrespectful,” he said. “There are kids watching us on TV. You think a multi-time world champion would behave better than that. But we know that, when times get tough, true colours show. I really hope that kids don’t see that and think http://www.authenticbostonbruins.com/authentic-cam-neely-jersey that is the right way. That is not how you drive.” Ferrari’s team principal, Maurizio Arrivabene, defended his driver. “We don’t want to get into an argument but I think I can say that some decisions that were not entirely clear never worked in favour of our team,” he said. However, the Mercedes non-executive chairman, Niki Lauda, was fiercely critical. “Vettel is a decent guy, normally,” the three-times world champion said. “This I don’t understand. He is crazy. Lewis will hit him one day. Not with the car but with the fist. If I was Lewis, I would speak to Sebastian and ask him what is wrong.” Hamilton, however, clearly felt there was no need for further Youth Abraham Almonte Replica Navy Blue Majestic Jersey: MLB Cleveland Indians #35 Alternate Cool Base explanations. “There was no reason to pull alongside me at that point it was clear,” he said. “We are world champions, the best in the world, we don’t just swerve to the right.”

Former India off-spinner Erapalli Prasanna on Friday said if the Indian team captain feels he is the "boss" then the team can perform without a coach. Prasanna's comment when asked about the rift between Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble, who quit as Indian cricket Canadiens Jersey team coach recently. "Why do they require a coach, if the captain is the boss?" Prasanna asked. "I don't think they even need the services of batting or fielding coaches (Sanjay Bangar and R Sridhar)." Prasanna also questioned Kohli's captaincy abilities. "Kohli is undoubtedly a very good player but I do not know whether he is a good captain or not," he said. Kumble quit as India coach in the aftermath of their Champions Trophy final loss to arch-rivals Pakistan, stating that Kohli had reservations about his coaching "style" and their partnership was "untenable". Team India will be without a coach in the tour to the West Indies, where they are scheduled to play five ODIs and one-off T20 match starting at Port of Spain later on Friday. "If a legendary cricketer like Anil Kumble is not respected, I do not think neither of them -- Bangar and Sridhar -- will have the http://www.authenticcanadiensonline.com/Authentic-Al-Montoya-Jersey guts to speak to Kohli in a confident way. None of them are as experienced like Kumble," Prasanna said. "Just hire somebody for the physical training and that will be enough. If such is the attitude of a captain I don't think you require a coach," the 77-year-old said. "We can go back to the good old days of appointing a manager to look after the logistics, if he (Kohli) takes up the responsibility. The role of a coach is not defined," he added. Prasanna also said the time has come for India to look beyond old warhorses like Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. "I don't think they will be able to continue till the next World Cup in 2019, they will be 38 then. We need fresh and young legs and players who are extremely agile," he said. "Okay, Dhoni will be the wicketkeeper but Yuvraj is going to be a liability as a fielder. In fact, the selectors should have tried out more youngsters for this West Indies tour, as they are one of the weakest teams at the moment." Prosecutors in Barcelona say they are not against replacing football star Lionel Messi's 21-month jail sentence for tax fraud with a fine, a spokeswoman announced on Friday. They said they were willing to give the 29-year-old a fine of 400 euros ($450) a day for the duration of the Anthony Hitchens Womens Jersey sentence -- an option that the defence of the Argentina international has also proposed. That would amount to more than 250,000 euros, although the court has the final decision over whether to go ahead with this option. The daily fine would come on top of the 2.09-million-euro fine Messi was also given when he and his father Jorge Horacio Messi were found guilty of tax fraud in a trial last year and sentenced to 21 months in jail. Both appealed, but Spain's Supreme Court last month confirmed the jail term for the Barcelona striker, although it reduced Messi's father's sentence to 15 months. The pair used companies in Belize, Britain, Switzerland and Uruguay to avoid paying taxes on 4.16 million euros of Messi's income earned from his image rights from 2007-09. The income related to Messi's image rights that was hidden includes endorsement Brandon Scherff Womens Jersey deals with Danone, Adidas, Pepsi- Cola, Procter & Gamble and the Kuwait Food Company. Messi is not the only football star to run into problems with Spain's courts, with Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo the latest to have been summoned to appear before a judge investigating tax fraud. He is due to be questioned on July 31 on suspicion of evading 14.7 million euros in taxes. England batsman Jason Roy became the holder of a dubious record on Friday when he became the first batsman in Twenty20 International history to be given out for obstructing the field. The England opener etched his name into the record books during a T20I match between England and South Africa at the County Ground in Taunton. The incident happened in the 16th over of England's innings when Roy's teammate Liam Livingstone http://www.nikecowboysjerseys.com/alfred-morris-jersey-for-sale-c-51.html sent the ball towards backward point and asked for a single but changed his mind at the last moment. Roy, while running back to the crease, changed his path and the throw from the fielder hit his boots. After the incident, South Africa players appealed and the on-field umpire asked for the help of the TV umpire. After much deliberation Roy was given out, much to the dismay of the home fans.
