BUFFALO, N. LaMarcus Aldridge Jersey .Y. -- Sabres general manager Tim Murray is fine with defenseman Rasmus Ristolainens decision to practice with the team even though hes not under contract.That doesnt mean Murray believes the Sabres top defensemans presence in Buffalo will have any effect on negotiations.No, Murray told The Associated Press while breaking into a laugh on Friday. Unless you ask him that when he got here that he got all lovey-dovey and wants to play for what we want to pay him.Though Murray said the two sides are still negotiating, he wouldnt say whether progress is being made with the restricted free agent two weeks before the Sabres open the regular season.Ristolainen is a restricted free agent whose rights were retained by the Sabres in June. After representing Finland in the World Cup of Hockey, Ristolainen reported to Buffalo on Thursday in what was regarded as a sign of good faith.Though hes not allowed to play because hes not under contract, Ristolainen is practicing with the team and also taking part in meetings.Ristolainen is not making himself available to reporters, and messages left with his agent, Mike Liut, were not returned.Murray said he was somewhat surprised by Ristolainens request to practice with the team. Thats a switch from other restricted free agents such as Winnipeg defenseman Jacob Trouba, who has requested to be traded.Murray didnt see anything wrong with allowing Ristolainen to practice, saying hed rather the player be in Buffalo than working out elsewhere.Ristolainen was selected by Buffalo in the first round of the 2013 draft and has played three seasons with the Sabres. Last year, Ristolainen led the team in averaging more than 25 minutes of ice time per game, and led Buffalo defensemen with 41 points (nine goals, 32 assists).In saying he has no control over contract talks, coach Dan Bylsma took a diplomatic approach addressing Ristolainens situation.I think it shows a lot from both the player that he wants to be here practicing with his team, and it shows a lot from us, a lot from Tim, that we want him here as well, Bylsma said. The contract will take care of itself. David Robinson Jersey . He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. Sean Elliott Jersey . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. 1969 - Balmain def South Sydney Rabbitohs 11-2Given next-to-no chance against a South Sydney side stacked with 11 internationals, Balmain sprung one of the greatest grand final upsets ever at the Sydney Cricket Ground. With gamesmanship perhaps ahead of its time, the young Tigers feigned injury to halt opposition momentum. It worked a treat as they held Souths to a solitary penalty goal. It was a perfect farewell for retiring captain Peter Provan and Balmains last premiership before a merger with Western Suburbs in 1999.1989 - Canberra Raiders def Balmain 19-14One of the greatest grand finals of all time, Canberras inaugural premiership was the first won by an out-of-Sydney team. The Raiders trailed 12-2 at halftime against a Balmain pack featuring internationals Steve Roach, Ben Elias, Paul Sironen and Wayne Pearce but rallied to send the match into extra-time. Second rower Steve Jackson then carried defenders over the line for the match-winner. Coached by Tim Sheens, Canberra became the first team to take out the premiership from fourth place.1997 - Newcastle Knights def Manly Sea Eagles 22-16When flying winger Darren Albert scored seven seconds from fulltime, the premiership trophy headed to Newcastle for the first time. Sitting in first place from round four on, Manly had beaten the Knights twice during the season and started overwhelming favourites. Under skipper Geoff Toovey, they led 16-8 at the break but were run down. Dennis Rodman Jersey. Australia fullback Robbie ODavis levelled the scores inside the final 10 minutes before Albert scored the match-winner.1999 - Melbourne Storm def St. George Illawarra Dragons 20-18The Storm were trounced 34-10 by the Dragons in the opening week of the finals but rebounded three weeks later to clinch a dramatic maiden title. Melbourne were 18-14 behind inside the final three minutes when Dragons winger Jamie .Ainscough caught Craig Smith in a high tackle forcing him to lose the ball over the line. Referee Bill Harrigan awarded a controversial penalty try, with Matt Geyers ensuing kick from in front sealing a controversial win.2003 - Penrith Panthers def Sydney Roosters 18-6Wooden spooners two years prior, the Mountain Men toppled their Eastern Suburbs rivals in a performance best remembered for Panthers forward Scott Sattlers famous cover tackle on Roosters winger Todd Byrne. Despite winning the minor premiership, Penrith started as outsiders against a Roosters side with the second best defence in the league. With the scores tied at 6-6 early in the second half, Sattler chased down Byrne. From there, Penriths line wasnt breached. Hooker Luke Priddis, the only Panther with previous grand final experience, claimed the Clive Churchill Medal. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Nizamuddin Chowdhury, BCBs chief executive, has categorically rejected any talk of playing England at a neutral venue should they pull out of their scheduled tour of Bangladesh in October. Eoin Morgan, Englands limited-overs captain, said last week that neutral venues may be feasible if it came to that after the Gulshan attacks in Dhaka on July 1.We always believe this is never a solution, Chowdhury said. Cricket cannot stop in a country. We will make our best effort to fulfill the FTP commitment. The cricket operations of both BCB and ECB are in continuous communication regarding the England tour of Bangladesh in October. They are in discussion with the tour related matters, especially the logistics.Chowdhury said that the ECBs security visit will be held in the coming months. The security visit is a standard practice. Teams like England, Australia do this regularly. A security delegate from England was supposed to come last month, but as they have tour of India after Bangladesh, I think they will do the security inspection of the two countries together. We will get to know when they get confirmation from the two boards.Bangladesh has never needed to host a billateral series in a neutral venue, but Australia postponed their 2015 tour and pulled out of the Under-19 World Cup earlier this year due to their governments advice on security matters. Air Max 97 Undefeated Italia. Chowdhury said the ICC were to issue guidelines on security issues, but is banking on Bangladeshs track record of hosting major events despite volatile times in the country. In 2014, the BCB managed to host three high-profile international tournaments mere weeks after election-related violence had subsided. After Australias twin pull out, there was much concern about the Under-19 World Cup, but it was held in four cities in the country.The security issue has already been discussed at different levels in the ICC. There have been discussions on security protocol. A guideline will soon be given from the ICC, he said. We have very good track record of hosting successful international events with the support from the government and the law enforcement departments. We believe to get the same support in future for hosting cricket in the country. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
First-place New York City FC was admittedly worn down after a run of three games -- including two wins -- in eight days. Glen Rice Jersey . New York City coach Patrick Vieria knew by the time he finished watching his teams performance in a 3-1 loss at Sporting KC on Monday, it needed a break.It was important for us to recover physically and mentally, Vieria told teams website. We had three games in a week and we spent a lot of energy. And thats the reason why I gave them two days off.New York City will see if the time off pays off Sunday, when it travels to Montreal for a 5 p.m. ET, nationally-televised match with the short-handed Impact.New York City boasts the best road record in the MLS at 5-3-1. The Impact are 4-1-3 on their home pitch, but will be without suspended star midfielder Ignacio Piatti.MLS suspended Piatti after reviewing a two-footed takedown of Portlands Alvas Powell last week. It was changed from a yellow to a red card, sidelining Piatti against New York City. He leads Montreal with 11 goals, second in the MLS behind New York Citys David Villa, who has 12 goals on the season.Without Piatti, New York Citys focus will turn to Montreal forward Didier Drogba, who will be available Sunday, after missing his last three games with a thigh injury.Hes one of the best players in the world at his position, Vieria said of Drogba. When you look at the number of finals that he played, the number of goals that he scored in the finals, just how good he is. I think hes a player that has always shown up in the big moment, and hes a threat for the 95 minutes. Its exciting to face him again. I think as a team well have to be really strong and well have to concentrate for the 95 minutes.Montreal (6-4-8) is in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings, trailing New York City by four points.The teams battled to a 1-1 draw in an April 27 meeting at Yankee Stadium. Montreals Dominic Odura scored the equalizer in stoppage time in the draw. R.J. Allen scored for New York City.New York City won two of three games against Montreal last season. Tim Hardaway Jersey .

Mobile apps that allow users to create their own emojis or share the stylized images of NBA star Stephen Curry and other celebrities are paying off for a small upstate New York company.Moji Maker- with its mix-and-match menu of happy, angry or goofy faces -- was the No. 2 paid app on the iTunes chart as of Friday morning. The company that made it, Moji, recently scored big with its Curry app and is following up with similarly styled apps for two Olympic athletes who won gold this week: swimmer Michael Phelps and gymnast Simone Biles.The company of about a dozen people is based far from Silicon Valley and celeb-heavy Los Angeles in Binghamton, New York, where the three principals -- all between 30 and 32 years old -- grew up. None of them had a background in programming. Their success provides a window into a quickly evolving emoji market that didnt even exist until recently.We look at everything that we make and we ship objectively, and say, `Is this something that we would actually use in our everyday texts? Does this have relevance in a persons everyday conversation? said Oliver Camilo, the companys founder and CEO. Because we dont want to create stuff thats just a boring bottle of water.The emoji market is flourishing as mobile users demand more ways to express themselves. Kim Kardashian and Justin Beiber are among the growing number of celebrities who have their own emoji apps.Right now, theres just not a lot of players doing it and thats why a very small player who aligns himself with a Steph Curry or anyone else is able to achieve so much adoption, said Travis Montaque, founder annd CEO of the research and brand integration company Emogi. Dion Waiters Jersey. The emojis from Moji and its competitors have not been adopted by the California-based Unicode Consortium, which controls official emoji standards used on standard keyboards. Camilo said thats not their goal. The roughly 20,000 emojis from Moji can be texted, tweeted and posted on Facebook, but they cannot be used in Instagram comments and only in Snapchat messages since they are not approved by the consortium, Camilo said.The privately held company -- which Camilo runs with his partners, brothers Johnny and Liam Burns -- does not provide download or sales numbers, though Camilo said the fast-selling Moji Maker app netted them sales in the six figures within a week.Camilo is now based in Denver and the company is setting up an office in Los Angeles. They will continue to partner with celebrities as they look at working with corporate brands.Their StephMoji app debuted just before Curry and the Warriors faced the LeBron James-led Cavaliers in the NBA Finals in June. The app features Curry smiling, shooting, dribbling and chewing on his mouth guard. With an assist from Curry on social media, it quickly became a best seller.It was literally perfect timing, Camilo said.The Olympic athlete apps, PhelpsMoji and Simoji, debuted in late July. The Phelps app was already updated with a new scowling emoji after a photo of Phelps glowering inside his hood -- dubbed PhelpsFace -- went viral this week. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
SYLVANIA, Ohio - The Marathon Classic isnt a match-play tournament. Salomon Homme France . Except for maybe this year. Beatriz Recari birdied the two closing par 5s to catch Paula Creamer atop the leaderboard through 54 holes Saturday, setting up a head-to-head battle between players who are three shots clear of the field. Recari, a 26-year-old Spaniard who has won twice on the LPGA Tour, conceded that its hard not to get caught up in a two-person competition. "Definitely, its easier because youre playing with the player closest to you in score," she said. "You still have to do your best. You cant control what she does, so you always have to stay focused on what youre doing." They were at 12-under 201 after each shooting 4-under 67. The showdown could be a preview. Recari is expected to make the European team for the Solheim Cup next month — where match play rules — and Creamer is one of the mainstays of the American side. Creamer, who won in 2008 when the tournament was known as the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, led throughout the round by as many as two shots before Recaris late surge at Highland Meadows. She was pleased to find herself being the hunted instead of the hunter. "I love this feeling," said Creamer, who has nine wins but none since the 2010 U.S. Womens Open. "I havent felt it for a while. Ive normally been chasing the leaders, but this is great. This is right where I wanted to be." The last time she played in the same group with Recari, it was Recari who had the edge. In the third round of the Kia Classic in March in California, Recari shot a 69 when paired in the last grouping with Creamer, who had a 71. Recari, who had won the CVS last year, ended up winning in a playoff with I.K. Kim. Creamer faded to a tie for 17th. "Shes a great player," Recari said. "Its always great to play with her." Creamer, who set the tournament record with a first-round 60 in her victory lap five years ago, is expecting a battle. "Shes steady. She hits a lot of fairways and greens and gives herself a lot of opportunities to make birdies," she said about Recari. "At the same time, there are so many players out there that you have to kind of be aware of. But shes definitely going to be fighting until the end." Jessica Shepley of Owen Sound, Ont., shot 69 and sits at 2 under in a tie for 33rd, while Maude-Aimee Leblanc (73) of Sherbrooke, Que., is 2 over in a tie for 60th. Torontos Rebecca Lee-Bentham is shot further back after firing a 74 and is tied for 67th. There are plenty of potential challengers, even though several of the biggest names — including world No. 1 Inbee Park, defending champ So Yeon Ryu and top amateur Lydia Ko all fell back into the pack. Rising American teen Lexi Thompson had a 67 and, along with Jacqui Concolino and Japans Chie Arimura, was three shots back. "Ive been working on trusting my targets — picking out a target and just visualizing my shot," Thompson said. "Thats what Ive been doing every shot. Ive committed pretty good to them." Concolino, whose career-best tie for 11th came at the event last year, had a 69. She has revived her desire to play since taking time off from competitive golf after graduating from Vanderbilt in 2009. "I just got a little burnt out in college and needed some time to myself," she said of her lengthy hiatus. "Ever since I was 13, Ive been doing everything for golf, golf, golf. I never really had time to enjoy friends and family how you would want to. So thats what I did for a year and a half, two years, and started to get back on track." Arimura, fourth in the LPGAs rookie standings, three-putted the final hole for bogey and a 68. Jennifer Johnson (66), Chella Choi (66) and Jodi Ewart Shadoff (68) were at 205. Park has been the talk of the tour this year, with six victories including wins in all three of the major championships. Shell go for four in a row when the tour returns to action in two weeks at the Womens British Open at St. Andrews. But after winning three in a row and with a solid finish last week, she sagged to a 73 that left her tied for 23rd. She double-bogeyed the first hole after hitting her drive into a fairway bunker and never recovered. That wasnt the worst of it. "I just putted really bad today," she said, after dropping from sole possession of fifth place through 36 holes. "Outside of that, everything else was really similar (to earlier rounds of 67 and 69), but nothing seems to be going in." Ryu, who shot a 62 in the final round to win a year ago by seven strokes, shot a 70 and was six shots back of the leaders. Ko became the youngest LPGA winner ever when she took the Canadian Womens Open last year at 15, but she had a 71 and was tied with Ryu at 207. Alison Walshe, tied with Recari and Creamer after the second round, fell back with a 73. Creamer said that shell try not to concentrate only on her version of match play with Ricari. "You can get hot out here and shoot a low number, so I cant worry too much about what shes doing," she said. "Ive got to go out and play my own game because there are going to be a lot of players that can fire at pins and post a low score. Ill just have to make as many birdies as I can." ___ Follow Rusty Miller on Twitter: Chaussure Trail Salomon Femme .

CHICAGO -- Now that the Chicago Cubs have clinched a spot in the postseason for the second consecutive year, lets take an early peek at what a playoff roster might look like. Adidas Tubular Hombre . As manager Joe Maddon has indicated several times recently, some on the roster will be determined by who the opponent is, so adjustments will be made accordingly based on a first-round, best-of-five series.Because the Cubs used 11 pitchers and 14 position players last year in the National League Division Series, well use that as our standard here, but thats no guarantee as pitching coach Chris Bosio has already indicated they might want more help in the bullpen.Position player locks: Anthony Rizzo, Ben Zobrist, Addison Russell, Kris Bryant, Jason Heyward, Javier Baez, Jorge Soler, Dexter Fowler, Willson Contreras, David Ross, Matt Szczur, Tommy La Stella.On the bubble: Miguel Montero, Chris Coghlan and Albert Almora.My call: If the Cubs keep 14 position players, the decision may not be that difficult here. Montero and Coghlan would probably get the edge based on a couple of factors: Theyre both veterans and theyre both left-handed. The Cubs likely would be OK with carrying three catchers -- especially when one is a rookie and another is 39 years old -- as that would give Maddon more flexibility within a game. If Fowler needed to come out late for defensive reasons, a better case could be made for Almora. Szczur is more than capable as a late-inning defensive replacement as well.Coghlan might be on the outside looking in if the Cubs keep only 13 position players. La Stella and Szczur get the edge because of their ability to come off the bench and deliver a hit or walk. There is a chance Almora makes it over Coghlan no matter how many they keep, but with righty closers throughout the NL postseason, lefty bats off the bench could be most important.Pitching locks: Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Jake Arrieta, John Lackey, Aroldis Chapman, Pedro Strop, Hector Rondon, Justin Grimm, Travis Wood, Carl Edwards Jr.On the bubble: Joe Smith, Mike Montgomery, Rob Zastryzny, Trevor Cahill, Jason Hammel.My call: The Cubs are deeper in the bullpen this year than last, and if they play the Giants or Cardinals they will absolutely want another left-hander back there, so Montgomery actually might be closer to a lock than on the bubble. Remember, Wood has been awful against righties, so hes almost a one-batter pitcher in a close game unless lefties are stacked next to each other in the lineup.Smith and Hammel have allowed too many home runs, which can change a postseason game quickly. Zastryzny is a rookie and if not for Montgomerys presence, he might make the roster. Cahill could be the odd man out as he has been inconsistent and is best suited for long relief, a spot the Cubs hope they wont need come October.With weeks until the postseason, things could change simply based on who gets hot down the stretch. And how many pitchers versus position players?they keep will undoubtedly be an intense discussion between the Cubs front office and their manager. Adidas Stan Smith Negras Hombre . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. Adidas NMD XR1 Mujer . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. .

MANCHESTER, England -- When lecturing FIFA on ethics, English soccer leaders look like the moral arbiters of the game. Nike Air Max 97 Mens Sale .Its an attitude that gives the English Football Association little wiggle room when problems land on its own doorstep.So once the England team managers integrity was damaged by unguarded comments to undercover reporters about illegal transfer practices, while attempting to cash in on his prestigious job, Sam Allardyces position was untenable. Allardyces contract was terminated after 67 days and one game in charge.If we are going to be opinionated on how people behave in football in England and internationally we have to live the high standards ourselves, FA chairman Greg Clarke said. A problem came. We dealt with it quickly.But the problems arent going away. Far from it, with further allegations of wrongdoing emerging and pressure to act from the government.The Daily Telegraph also filmed an agent accusing 10 managers, which it did not name, of taking bribes linked to player transfers.The latest installment of the months-long investigation, which was published late Wednesday, led to second-tier club Barnsley suspending its assistant manager. Tommy Wright was filmed apparently accepting an envelope which the newspaper said contained 5,000 pounds ($6,500) from a fake Asian firm to help place players at the northern club.Bribes linked to transfers have long been suspected in England, which hosts the worlds richest domestic soccer competition in the Premier League.The vast number of Premier League transfers, loans and contract renegotiations involving large sums of money, combined with the greed of those involved in the deals, give rise to corruption, Liz Ellen, head of sports at law firm Mishcon de Reya, told The Associated Press.There is one quick fix.There should be a separation of powers, Ellen said. Managers and players should not have the same agents as this creates conflicts of interests and appearances of bias or conflict which are difficult to overcome.The League Managers Association said it is taking the allegations of bribery very seriously as they are obviously damaging to the game.Queens Park Rangers said it had every confidence in manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink while launching an investigation after he was filmed appearing to seek a fee of 55,000 pounds ($71,600) to work for a fake Far Eastern firm suggested selling players to the second-tier London club. Hasselbaink denied any wrongdoing, saying he was only offered a fee to make a speech in Singapore and did not ask QPR to sign players said to have been represented by the fake firm.Allardyce is the highest-profile scalp from the investigators.A video published on Monday showed Allardyce appearing to offer advice to fictitious businessmen on how to sidestep an outlawed player transfer practice and also negotiating a 400,000-pound ($519,000) public-speaking contract to top up an annual England salary of 3 million pounds ($4 million).A further recording showed Allardyce mocking predecessor Roy Hodgson, who was fired after Englands humiliating loss to tiny Iceland at the European Championship in June, questioning the FAs financial strategy, and talking dismissively about the organizations president, Prince William.On reflection it was a silly thing to do, Allardyce said outside his home near the northern English city of Manchester on Wednesday. Unfortunately, it was an error of judgment on my behalf and Ive paid the consequences.Allardyce was heading for the airport to escape England and to reflect on becoming the shortest-serving manager of the team.Before getting in his car, Allardyce had a message for the investigative journalists.Entrapment has won on this occasion, the former Sunderland and West Ham manager said, and I have to accept that.Covert investigations were also at the heart of wrongdoing around FIFA being exposed, although U.S. authorities instigated the case that led to dozens of soccer officials being indicted.In English soccer, a newspaper is leading the charge through covert operations.This kind of expose is a good tonic to the issue of corruption in football because it adds a fear factor, said Ellen, the London-based lawyer. When club officials and agents see what could happen when they are exposed, then the fear of getting caught could be a bigger motivating factor than the desire to act properly in the first place.But Allardyce received backing from an earlier occupant of the England job who was fired over bad results rather than any off-field conduct.Sam has innocently has paid the price, said Steve McClaren, whose reputation is defined by his miserable spell with England in 2006 and 2007. It could have happened to any of us in high-profile sports positions.When asked later by the AP if he was aware of being caught up in the Telegraph investigation, McClaren said: No comment.Earlier at the SoccerEx global convention, McClaren complained that as a manager: Privacy can only really be found in the four walls of your own home.If Allardyce had a greater awareness of his responsibilities as England manager when being wooed by fake businessmen, he would not have lost the job he chased for more than a decade.And now the British government wants action.We will be discussing the matter with the football authorities, sports minister Tracey Crouch said. All the evidence presented to them must be investigated fully and we stand ready to assist in any way we can.The FA and Englands leagues responded, saying in a joint statement that the allegations from the newspaper stings will be investigated and any evidence of criminality would be handed to authorities.---Rob Harris is at and Air Max 1 Master White .

Rolfe scored his fourth goal of the season with about 40 seconds left in the first half, beating Willis from 12 yards after taking a long pass from Mike Magee. The 3-0 lead was the Fires largest at halftime this season. Magee scored on a penalty kick in the 55th minute, his 12th goal of the season tying him with Vancouvers Camilo Sanvezzo.

The past few months have seen a meaningful surge in coverage surrounding the betting side of the esports industry, and it hasnt been pretty. Rudy Gay Jersey . Back in April, Bloomberg published a significant investigative piece detailing the scope of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skin betting marketplace and many of the issues stemming from that industry. This article, coupled with a public scandal involving the skin betting site CSGO Diamonds, helped spur a class action suit against Valve. Then two weeks ago, a video from prominent YouTuber h3h3Productions helped shed light on a wide array of issues, including potential fraud, related to the prominent betting site CSGO Lotto.Valve had remained silent throughout this mounting controversy, but its silence ended yesterday. Valve issued a statement entitled In Game Item Trading Update that could mark the demise of skin betting as we know it. While Valves stance seems relatively black and white, the language used in the statement leaves open as many questions as it answers. I will parse through that language to offer more insight into Valves decision and what it means for the future of betting surrounding Valve titles, including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.Analyzing Valves statementIn 2011, we added a feature to Steam that enabled users to trade in-game items as a way to make it easier for people to get the items they wanted in games featuring in-game economies.Since then a number of gambling sites started leveraging the Steam trading system, and theres been some false assumptions about our involvement with these sites. Wed like to clarify that we have no business relationships with any of these sites. We have never received any revenue from them. And Steam does not have a system for turning in-game items into real world currency.As far as I know, this is completely true. It could be argued that Valve has supported gambling sites to a certain extent by allowing users to log in via Steam, and Valve games have certainly become more popular as a result of these sites. But that is not the same thing as receiving revenue from their operations. Perhaps more information will come to light over time to support the allegations leveled against Valve in the class action lawsuit filed in Connecticut, but I havent seen any credible evidence that contradicts Valves assertion in its public statement.These sites have basically pieced together their operations in a two-part fashion. First, they are using the OpenID API as a way for users to prove ownership of their Steam accounts and items. Any other information they obtain about a users Steam account is either manually disclosed by the user or obtained from the users Steam Community profile (when the user has chosen to make their profile public). Second, they create automated Steam accounts that make the same web calls as individual Steam users.Using the OpenID API and making the same web calls as Steam users to run a gambling business is not allowed by our API nor our user agreements.This is the crux of Valves position, and judging from the public reaction thus far, it has been largely misunderstood. It does not appear that Valve is banning third-party sites from using Steam accounts to facilitate skin betting. At least, not yet. If you run a search in the Steam Web API Terms of Use and Steam Subscriber Agreement, the word gambling is nowhere to be found. In fact, the API Terms of Use havent been updated since July 2010, before the trading marketplace was even implemented and long before skins were introduced to CS:GO in 2013 through the Arms Deal update.Instead, Valves issue seems to be with the fact that gambling sites create automated Steam accounts that make the same web calls as individual Steam users. This naturally begs two questions: Does this affect sites that use automated Steam accounts to make API calls for purposes other than gambling? Can gambling sites continue to use the API so long as they dont make automated calls?The dominant skin marketplace website, OPSkins, released a statement yesterday that it doesnt believe it is impacted by Valves statement because it is not a gambling site. While it is certainly true that OPSkins users cannot gamble on the site, it does not appear to address the fact that OPSkins makes precisely the same type of automated API calls as betting sites in order to facilitate the large volume of transactions.Meanwhile, gambling sites such as have stated that they will continue to operate, and intend to implement changes to comply with the ToS update from Valve. While its not entirely clear how or other gambling sites could alter their behavior in order to comply with the API and other Valve user agreements, the fact is that Valves current position leaves room for them to do so.Thus, Valves statement creates a level of uncertainty that will have to be addressed. At present, its far from clear which sites will and will not be allowed to access the API moving forward.We are going to start sending notices to these sites requesting they cease operations through Steam, and further pursue the matter as necessary. Users should probably consider this information as they manage their in-game item inventory and trade activity.This is where the rubber meets the road. At the end of the day, the real impact will come from Valves enforcement, not from the statement itself. Will Valve enforce the API restrictions against all third parties, or just gambling sites? Will Valve actively monitor the situation and eliminate new sites as they arise, or will it take a more passive approach?Perhaps the biggest uncertainty surrounds whether Valve will go after all forms of gambling (including betting on the outcome of esports matches), or if Valve is targeting traditional gambling activities such as coin flips, lotteries and similar games. In its statement, Valve consistently uses the word gambling, as opposed to betting. This could be an attempt to draw a distinction between certain types of wagering activities, or it could have no significance at all.Only time will tell how all of this plays out. But from where Im sitting, there simply isnt enough information in Valves short statement for anyone to do more than speculate.Impact on the esports landscapeDespite the uncertainty surrounding yesterdays statement, its great to see Valve taking action in this area. We are rapidly approaching a critical mass of negative publicity that could have a significant impact on the longevity of the second-most popular esport in the world, as well as the interests of every party involved in that competitive ecosystem. If unregulated skin betting is allowed to continue unchecked, broader backlash and the advent of regulation from parties who do not understand our industry is inevitable.I sincerely hope that Valves statement marks the beginning of the end for unregulated, unlicensed betting sites that prey on underage users and offer no safeguards against fraud, threats to competitive integrity and much more. That being said, Im not sure today is that day.The fact that Valves statement relies on API misuse is particularly telling. So long as sites can find a way to comply with the terms of use, they may be allowed to continue operating.There is also the potential that Valves stance could be overboard, eliminating all skin-based betting, not simply the sites that operate illegally.It is often overlooked that skins offer a unique type of betting unit that could change the face of gambling as we know it. While many people buy, sell and gamble skins purely as a form of currency, skins are designed to be used, not merely held. In stark contrast to pure cash, a skin may become less valuable to a user over time while maintaining its value to another user who doesnt own that particular skin. As such, it offers the rare opportunity for gambling with reduced negative consequences for the loser. It is a fundamentally different type of gambling transaction, one that could represent a watershed opportunity for the gambling industry.I dont think it is good for anyone to simply eliminate the potential to bet using skins, and I hope Valve isnt going down this path.The problem isnt betting. The problem is unlicensed, unregulated betting. So long as it is done responsibly, betting can drive engagement and additional revenue streams, with manageable negative impacts. There is ample empirical and anecdotal evidence that shows gambling can be good for esports viewership. But that doesnt mean we should stand by and allow the fraud, false advertising and other illegal behavior that has surfaced over the past few months to go unchecked.Im glad to see Valve acknowledge that it has a role to play in eradicating bad actors. As it moves forward and enforces its position, I hope that Valve will strike the right balance between eliminating problematic behavior while permitting gambling in a legal, regulated and responsible manner.Disclosure: Bryce Blum is the General Counsel at Unikrn. Tony Parker Jersey .

LOUDON, N. Avery Bradley Jersey .H. -- Matt Kenseth and Martin Truex Jr. had a tight battle for several laps during the Sprint Cup race Sunday at New Hampshire.It appeared that Truex could have used the front bumper at times a little more than he did.But Truexs driving code told him not to, that Truex already had a win to advance to the next round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. And the fact remains that Kenseth is a Toyota teammate, and Truex is in on all the competition meetings at Kenseths team, Joe Gibbs Racing, as part of his Furniture Row Racing teams alliance.I felt like I probably could have pushed the issue a little bit more. I just didnt want to risk contact, getting into him and taking him out of the race, Truex said. I know hes got a lot on the line.Weve got our win, so that kind of played into that decision a little bit, and ... hes a teammate, too. It would be an awkward meeting on Tuesday if I knocked him out of the way to win my second race of the first round.That was the issue many had when Joey Logano turned Kenseth to win at Kansas a year ago a week after Logano had won at Charlotte to open the second round.While some applauded Logano for keeping an opponent from winning and possibly advancing, it made people wonder how someone with nothing to lose should race someone who has so much to lose.I was trying to race as hard as I possibly could without getting into him, and he wasnt making that easy, Truex said. But thats his job as the leader. This racetrack, its hard to pass at. Its really hard to pass on when you have two cars that are very equal.I felt like we were a little bit better than him at that point in time, but not good enough to just drive by him. He was running the line that I needed to run. ... He didnt give me much room underneath him to get any grip, and every time wed go off in the corner Id get loose and have to back out from underneath him. It was tough racing, hard racing.Truex believes if he could have gotten by Kenseth, they could have kept Kevin Harvick from winning and potentially made Harvick fight for a Chase spot next week at Dover.We both burned our tires off, Truex said after a seventh-place finish. Man, we were going as hard as we could go every single lap, and I think Harvick was back there in clean air.He wasnt as fast as we were, so he was just running smooth, consistent laps, and he ended up having better tires than us at the end.Xfinity Series: Sadler earns statement winElliott Sadler put a wrench in the theory that the Joe Gibbs Racing drivers would be the teams to beat in the Xfinity Series Chase as he won the opener at Kentucky.JGR won 15 of the first 26 races, with Chevy teams winning 10 -- JR Motorsports with four, Richard Childress Racing with three and Chip Ganassi Racing with two -- and Fords with two (one by Penske, one by Biagi-DenBeste Racing).Sadler, who led the standings for the final eight weeks until the points reset for the Chase, has won two of the last four races. JR Motorsports had won two of the first eight races and then went winless over the next 15.Were just going to keep racing our behinds off week in and week [out] and keep trying to put the pressure on them, Sadler said. Those guys have set the bar really high and they qualify on a lot of poles, but Ill take [my crew chief] and everybody back at the shop at JR Motorsports right now on a head-to-head battle with those guys the next six weeks.Well see what theyre made of the next six weeks.They will especially see what Erik Jones is made of. The rookie crashed into Ty Dillon after losing control of his car in tight quarters. JGRs Jones is three points behind the cutoff with two races left in the round -- races that he can automatically advance into the semifinal round with a win so he doesnt have to rely on points.We can win anytime we come to the race track, but we beat ourselves a lot this year and we did it again tonight and thats unfortunate, Jones said. Its my fault.Were back there in traffic and just got sucked around. Its a bummer for sure. We didnt want to end our night like that and well just have to race really well at the next couple.Camping World Truck Series: Byron maintains focusThe win to open the Camping World Truck Series Chase at New Hampshire was not a confirmation of William Byrons ability. He already had five wins this season and few doubted he could win again.But it was a confirmation that Byron can handle the distractions that have been thrown his way the last few weeks.It was a month ago when Byron was introduced as the newest driver in the Hendrick Motorsports stable. He will drive an Xfinity Series car for JR Motorsports next year.Then in the last couple of weeks, Byron enrolled in classes at Liberty University.So to go out and lead 161 of 175 laps, it shows he hasnt let either the thought of driving for Hendrick or what grade hell get on his next English paper impact his focus.Theres been a lot going on, Byron said. With school starting, thats probably bigger than next year. Ive just tried to make sure these guys know I can get to the shop anytime I need to. Dennis Rodman Jersey .

SHANGHAI -- Former Chelsea and Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas will replace Sven-Goran Eriksson as coach of Shanghai SIPG, making him the latest top name to join the big-spending Chinese Super League. Puma Fenty Bow Uk .The 39-year-old Villas-Boas is young, full of passion and with a wealth of coaching experience, the club said Friday in a statement on its official Weibo microblog.We believe Villas-Boas arrival will further enrich the teams technical and tactical play, stimulate the potential of more young players, and lead the team closer to a higher goal, the club said.Speaking at a news conference in Shanghai, Villas-Boas said he was taking the step to Asia with full confidence.SIPG guarantees me that they will continue with the investment in the team, that they want to meet my ambitions, which is to win immediately, the Portuguese coach said, adding that a very good conversation with general manager Sui Guoyang had convinced him to take up the opportunity.Villas-Boas, who was under consideration for the Inter Milan position, said he had offers to stay in Europe but I wanted to try different things.Of course the economic conditions are also very exciting here. Everybody knows that, Villas-Boas said.Villas-Boas made his mark at FC Porto and had stints in charge at Chelsea and Tottenham in the Premier League before moving to Zenit St. Petersburg in Russia. Unconfirmed reports put his salary at about $14 million.Eriksson guided Shanghai SIPG to runner-up and third-place finishes in the Chinese Super League in his two seasons and to the quarterfinals of the Asian Champions League.Clubs in the Chinese Super League spent more than $400 million on foreign players in 2016, while high-profile coaches including Eriksson, Luiz Felipe Scolari and Manuel Pellegrini have also lifted the international profile of the league.Among the high-priced imports brought to SIPG is Brazi international Hulk, whose $62 million transfer fee from Zenit St. Petersburg set an Asian record. That topped the $56 million Jiangsu Suning paid this year for Brazilian midfielder Alex Teixeira. Guangzhou Evergrande paid $47 million for Colombia striker Jackson Martinez.Hulk played under Villas-Boas at Zenit St. Petersburg and SIPG management will be looking to the combination to help challenge the supremacy of the Scolari-helmed Guangzhou Evergrande, who have won the league for the last six seasons. Puma Velvet Creepers Burgundy . 1, meaning problems for the doping controls at both major international sports events next year.

LONDON -- Didier Drogba came back to haunt Arsenal in their own stadium on Sunday, scoring two late goals in a 2-1 victory that won Galatasaray the Emirates Cup. One of Arsenals bogeymen during his years at Chelsea, Drogba showed he hadnt lost the knack of scoring against the north London team. He came off the bench in the second half and turned a losing match around. He sealed victory in the 88th minute when he collected a pass into the box from Wesley Sneijder, dribbled past Per Mertesacker and struck the ball home. He brought Galatasaray level only nine minutes earlier when he converted a penalty after being pushed down by Bacary Sagna. Arsenal dominated play in the first half and scored in the 39th minute when Theo Walcotts cross cut through the defence and surprised goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. But they could not convert several chances, including a close-range shot that Walcott tapped wide and a disallowed goal by Sanogo, who was caught offside. Galatasaray coach Fatih Terims decision to field Drogba and Sneijder in the second half helped his team push forward with more confidence and hold possession for longer. Arsenals supporters in the stadium, where 59,608 tickets had been sold, showered Drogba with boos every time he touched the ball. The Ivorian international, however, seemed to feed off the energy, as though rejuvenated by memories of his Premier League glory days. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he was satisfied with his players performance in the first half and suggested their decline toward the end of the match was due more to their physical conditions rather than a mental llapse. Puma Velvet Creepers Uk. "Its been a long time since Ive seen two such different halves. We could not keep it going and we were punished for it," he said. Wenger praised Drogbas "physical and intelligent" play but argued he had fallen too easily to win the penalty. "The penalty was very, very, very, very soft," he said. "It was a classic Drogba." Earlier in the day, FC Porto beat Napoli 3-1, taking advantage of defensive blunders to make up for a first-half deficit. The Portuguese team equalized with a strike by forward Nabil Ghilas in the 50th minute and doubled their score thanks to an own goal by Napoli defender Federico Fernandez 18 minutes later. Lica came off the bench to seal the result for Porto in the 78th, picking up a loose pass in front of goal by Andrea Dossena. Napoli took the lead in the first half thanks to a penalty converted by forward Goran Pandev, who was brought down in the box by Fernando. But as the match wore on and Porto picked up the pace, the Italian side struggled to keep up. They were caught off guard by counterattacks, with Porto playmaker Juan Quintero creating several chances for his forwards. Like Wenger, Napolis coach, the newly signed Rafael Benitez, blamed his sides sluggishness on preseason training sessions that are still weighing on the players. "Physically, were not at the right level yet," he said. "The team has trouble when we lack freshness. We suffer counterattacks." Galatasaray finished the competition with nine points, ahead of Porto with six and Arsenal and Napoli with four. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
LAKE FOREST, Ill. Damian Lillard Jersey . -- The Chicago Bears released Robbie Gould, ending an 11-year run with the most accurate kicker in franchise history, and upgraded their offensive line by signing three-time Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton to a three-year deal Sunday night.With Gould gone and Sitton in place, the Bears figure to have a different look when they open the season against Houston on Sept. 11.Gould had quite a run in Chicago after going undrafted out of Penn State in 2005. He was working in construction when he signed with the Bears early that season after being released by New England and Baltimore.Gould helped the 2006 team reach the Super Bowl and became the Bears all-time leader in field-goal percentage (85.4 percent) and points (1,207). He also holds club records for field goals made (276), field goals made of 50 yards or more (23), field goals made in a season (33 in 2015) and longest field goal made (58-yards in 2013).Gould had a rough stretch last season after making his first 15 field-goal attempts, though he wound up converting 84.6 percent. He made 5 of 6 field goals in the preseason but missed two extra points in the final exhibition against Cleveland. And with two years remaining on his contract, the Bears are parting ways and will need to bring in another kicker.The 30-year-old Sitton was a surprise cut by Green Bay on Saturday. He had started 112 of 121 regular-season games since being drafted in the fourth round in 2008 out of Central Florida. He was one of the leaders on a front five that protects quarterback Aaron Rodgers.The signing of Sitton should bring a smile to quarterback Jay Cutler. He will have two star guards protecting him with three-time Pro Bowl lineman Kyle Long on the right side and Sitton at left guard.The Bears can now go with either veteran Ted Larsen at center or rookie Cody Whitehair, who took some snaps there but worked mainly at left guard in the preseason.The Bears also signed tight end Logan Paulsen and claimed center Eric Kush and cornerback Crevon LeBlanc off waivers on Sunday.Offensive lineman Cornelius Edison, defensive back Demontre Hurst and tight end Khari Lee were waived to make room on the roster.Paulsen played in 75 games for Washington over five seasons, finishing with 79 receptions for 801 yards and six touchdowns. But he missed last year with an injury and was released on Saturday.Kush also was cut Saturday after appearing in seven games with the Rams last season. LeBlanc, an undrafted rookie out of Florida Atlantic, played 141 snaps and had an interception for New England during the preseason, but was released by the Patriots over the weekend.The Bears signed six players to their practice squad, including former Harvard tight end Ben Braunecker and wide receiver Daniel Braverman, a seventh-round pick in this years draft out of Western Michigan.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Zach Collins Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. .
