Beside The Points For Monday Oct 16 2017

Oh, and don’t forgetWomen in FIFA18 story mode! Things That Caught My EyeMr. Kaepernick Goes To WashingtonOn Sunday, representatives of Colin Kaepernick — the free agent NFL quarterback best known for launching a league-wide protest over police mistreatment of African-Americans and who has not been signed to a roster — filed a complaint alleging collusion between teams essentially blackballing him from the league. While this is interesting in and of itself, there’s a bigger component of the filing that affects the whole operation: Under the collective bargaining agreement, the entire CBA can be terminated if there’s clear and convincing evidence of one incident of collusion involving one player. Whether there’s actual evidence is to be determined, but the Kaepernick case now has immense ramifications and could potentially give players lots of leverage over NFL owners in a hypothetical negotiation resulting from the threat of CBA termination. [NBC Sports, ESPN, Mike Freeman]Cricket picks up in the U.S.Increased immigration from the Indian subcontinent has primed the U.S. Cricket for growth. For instance, in the Washington Cricket League there are 42 teams, with another 18 competing in the Washington Metropolitan Cricket Board. The sport is huge around the world, and according to the International Cricket Council there are 200,000 U.S. players on 6,000 teams in 450 leagues. I have failed at literally every other sport; maybe in cricket I will finally find my true calling.

Commentary The curious polarizing case of Ohio State mens basketballs Aaron Craft

Did Aaron Craft really wave him off?It’s been three days and I’m still having trouble wrapping my head around the junior guard’s last-second heroics to drop Iowa State and send the Ohio State basketball team to the Sweet 16.In the process he waved off Deshaun Thomas, the best scorer in the nation’s best conference and a 35 percent 3-point shooter, as he cut to the top of the arc.He also ignored the waving arms of Lenzelle Smith Jr., who was unguarded in the opposite corner and shoots 38 percent from the 3-point line.Craft, a 30 percent 3-point shooter who missed two crucial free throws just moments earlier, did all of this to take a contested 3-pointer with a bigger, slower defender on him.But it went in. Of course it went in.Buckeye Nation and the thousands who picked the Buckeyes to advance in their bracket pools rejoiced.But there were also many folks in Ann Arbor, Mich., and Champaign, Ill., and Bloomington, Ind., and other various cities across the country who rolled their eyes.“Why did Aaron Craft have to make it?” they thought. “I hate Aaron Craft.”That’s been the narrative when it comes to Craft for a while now. You either love him or you hate him.As Arizona coach Sean Miller, who will face Craft and the Buckeyes in the Sweet 16 Thursday, said Monday, Craft “has that Tim Tebow quality.”“Tebow, at Florida, it wasn’t just his performance on the field, but who he was as a person, the leadership that he provided, the competitive spirit he embodied. It seemed to spread through Florida’s football team, and Aaron Craft does the same thing for Ohio State basketball.”Now, let’s make one thing clear here. Tebow, the current New York Jets quarterback and former Florida Gator, is one of the best college football players of his generation (though not so much in the NFL). I’m not convinced Craft is one of the best 20 players in college basketball this year.But what Craft and Tebow do have in common are their spotless images and their effect on observers of the sport. There’s a large portion of America that loves guys that work too hard, achieve more than they probably should and above all, win. There’s also a large portion of America that thinks Craft and Tebow are arrogant.Craft’s popularity, though, is skyrocketing. He’s been a popular figure in Columbus since his freshman year, but with the aid of March Madness’ spotlight, he’s becoming a national name, too.It’s Craft who’s the face of the OSU basketball program, not Thomas, the potent scorer, or Thad Matta, the coach who’s led the Buckeyes to the Sweet 16 for the fourth consecutive year.Thanks in large part to his clutch shot Sunday, Craft’s name was buzzing on the Internet. His name was trending on Twitter, and he was one of the seven search items Google identified as trending on Sunday in the United States.What those who punched his name into a search engine probably found was the information about his near-perfect GPA, his medical school aspirations and maybe even the “Cosmopolitan Magazine” article that named him one of the “hottest” guys of the NCAA Tournament.Craft, like Tebow, has worked his way into national relevance. More and more people know who he is for more reasons than just basketball.The fact is Craft is different than everybody else. The way he plays the game is different, the way he reacts to big plays is different (he hardly showed emotion after he hit his big shot Sunday), and frankly, the way he looks (rosy cheeks included) is different.Because he’s different and because he’s relevant, we feel the need to classify him. Some love him. Some hate him.I’m sure Iowa State’s classification of Craft is closer to the latter. If that’s the case with Arizona after the game Thursday, something tells me Craft won’t be too upset. read more

first_imgRoma’s director of football urged fans to be on their best behaviour at their clash with Liverpool and the team to beat the Reds as well.Roma’s ultras have been famous for their violent record – if the other clubs have moved past the violence in the 80s of the last century, Roma supporters seem stuck in the past. They are known for stabbing five Manchester United supporters in 2007, a few Tottenham fans later, then there were Arsenal, and Chelsea, and Liverpool, and so on – even Middlesbrough supporters were affected.However, Monchi stated the fans are not violent and urged them to show their true nature.Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in next week’s UCL Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 With the Champions League about to start, we need to start talking about the Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in the competition.Atletico…“At this time when we talk about violence, we need to make it clear Roma fans are not violent,” Monchi said, according to Liverpool Offside.“Football and life are two different things. We are all human beings.”“Beating Liverpool is more difficult than beating Barcelona,” Monchi shared. “Tomorrow does not exist—it ends all Wednesday and we must not leave anything in it.

School teacher quits after backlash over FB post on Pulwama attack

first_imgKolkata: A teacher of a reputed school has resigned after protests erupted over one of his Facebook posts, which did not favour describing the CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama attack as “martyrs”. Chitradeep Som, a 36-year-old history teacher, said the school forced him to quit for his February 15 post, questioning the logic behind hailing the jawans as martyrs “as they were just doing their duty”. His stance on social media resulted in a huge backlash with many people accusing him of insulting the security forces. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose Som said the netizens complained against him to the school authorities and his house was attacked on Sunday by a mob, forcing him to shift to a relative’s place. “On Monday, the school authorities asked me to meet them immediately. Thereafter, I was forced to resign,” he said. The teacher, however, stood his ground and argued that expressing opinion wasn’t a mistake. “I don’t think I committed any mistake by expressing my opinion and I never intended to malign our forces. Only a portion of my post had gone viral on social media, and on the basis of that, my house was attacked, I was manhandled,” Som told PTI.

The school administration, however, denied Som was forced to resign and asserted he quit on his own. “We have been receiving calls and messages from parents and others over his FB post. They asked us why someone like Som was appointed as a teacher by us. We were afraid that the school could also be attacked and the safety of our students might be at risk,” a school official, who did not wish to be named, told PTI. He also said Som offered to quit after the situation was explained to him. “He said he would resign as he doesn’t want the school to suffer because of his mistake. We did not force him to resign,” the official added. A terror strike on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir killed 40 jawans on February 14.last_img read more
