Less than two weeks after his historic victory at UFC 205, when he became the first fighter to hold titles in multiple weight classes simultaneously, talk of whats next for Conor McGregor has continued to dominate headlines. Brian Dawkins Jersey .McGregor announced he will take some time off after a hectic 2016 for the birth of his first child, and he isnt expected back in the Octagon until at least May, per UFC president Dana White. At the same time, talks about a superfight in boxing with retired champion Floyd Mayweather just wont seem to go away.But what about a third option -- the idea of McGregor entering the scripted world of pro wrestling during his upcoming hiatus from mixed martial arts, which coincides conveniently with WWEs WrestleMania 33 card on April 2 in Orlando, Florida?According to his agent, Audie Attar, who appeared Tuesday on ESPNs 5ive Rounds podcast, its something McGregor is willing to entertain -- as long as the money is right.I think its all about business, man, Attar said. If [WWE] is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here. Have their people call his people -- which is me. We can have a conversation.The topic of a McGregor crossover into sports entertainment picked up steam when executive and 14-time WWE world champion Paul Triple H Levesque was in attendance at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Levesque gave an interview with a British newspaper in which he said McGregor would be a perfect fit for WWE.He could come over, hes got it all, man, Levesque told the Daily Telegraph. Hes got the personality, the skills, the talk. Hes an entertainer, for sure.Levesque went on to compare McGregor to Mayweather, who competed in a 2008 match at WrestleMania XXIV against The Big Show?during a brief retirement from boxing. Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey also made a?memorable appearance at WrestleMania 31 in 2015, nearly stealing the show when she teamed up with?The Rock?to exchange smack talk (and a hip-toss) opposite Triple H and his wife?Stephanie McMahon.Attar said McGregor has not had direct talks with WWE or Levesque as of yet, at UFC 205 or elsewhere.I think its phenomenal that a guy like Triple H was at the fights, Attar said. I heard he said some positive things, which is always good to hear.McGregor made headlines in August during a teleconference ahead of his UFC 202 rematch with Nate Diaz, when the Irish star called out WWE/UFC crossover star?Brock Lesnar?for being juiced up to his f---ing eyeballs and?referred to WWE superstars in general as massive p---ies.To many, the comments were seen as McGregor playing the smart businessman, planting seeds for a potential move to WWE. He went on to double down on his original comments by taking more shots on social media.Its ultimately like, look -- I think Conor had his say via social media at times, but he also is someone that appreciates people that sacrifice and train and are dedicated to their craft, whatever it may be, Attar said.Would McGregor be willing to go as far as having a formal match with the WWE, similar to what Mayweather did, if the two sides came to terms?Again, I think ultimately Conor will say, Let me talk to my friend Benjamin [Franklin] to see how many of his friends hes bringing with him before we talk about what the obligations are, Attar said. Mike Quick Eagles Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Tommy McDonald Jersey . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. http://www.theeaglesshoponline.com/Youth-Nick-Foles-Eagles-Jersey/ . In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. Tim Cahill has guaranteed his stay outside the Melbourne City side will be a short one, vowing to return for the clubs A-League trip to Brisbane next Friday.The Socceroos striker was absent from the City side that beat Adelaide United 2-1 on Friday night as one of four changes from their midweek FFA Cup win over Melbourne Victory.Coach John van t Schip put the 36-year-olds unavailability down to Achilles stiffness and Cahill said it was only a minor setback.One hundred per cent Ill be back, he told Fox Sports after the match.The Socceroos striker confessed to carrying a problem for the last fortnight.It only added to his awe as he watched his teammates re-group to play their third match in eight days.Im so impressed. The boys did so well, he said.I was injured since the first Melbourne Victory game and these guys have been patching themselves up.Ive goot so much admiration for them because theyre troopers. JJ Arcega-Whiteside Jersey. Theyre warriors.Now the momentum and consistency is first class.Bruno Fornarolis first-half screamer and second-half paneka penalty lifts City back up to second place, with nine points from four matches.Against the Reds, coach John van t Schip opted to make four changes, with Nick Fitzgerald and Anthony Caceres rotated out while Michael Jakobsen missed with soreness.The Dutchman hailed Osama Malik, Connor Chapman and Paulo Retre for coming in from the cold.We have competition in all spots and this evening some players came in and played 90 minutes after not playing for a few weeks, he said.It was a good sign that we showed we are a squad and not only a team.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. Steve Young Womens Jersey . - Earlier this week, the San Francisco 49ers traded for slot receiver/returner Jeremy Kerley. On Tuesday, the reason for that move became clear as the team placed presumptive starting slot receiver Bruce Ellington on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.Ellington suffered the injury last week in the Niners third preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. It happened on a punt return as Ellington stumbled forward to catch the punt before falling awkwardly. He limped off the field and spent most of the first half on the bench with a towel over his head. San Francisco coach Chip Kelly said Ellington had an MRI on Saturday. Ellington is not eligible for the injured reserve/designated to return tag because he was not on the 53-man roster when the preseason ended.Ellingtons two-year career has been marred by various injuries that cost him six games. The 2014 fourth-round pick out of South Carolina has 19 catches for 215 yards and two touchdowns while also serving as the primary returner over two seasons.Kerley, who came in a deal for offensive lineman Brandon Thomas with the Detroit Lions, is expected to help fill both voids.Jeremy gives us some depth as a slot receiver, offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said. Hes played a lot of football in this league as a slot. He also gives us some versatility as a returner, so hes added depth that we really need and I think hell be able to get caught up to speed fairly quickly.The 49ers also released linebacker Jason Fanaika to get to the league-mandated 75-man roster before Tuesdays deadline. Kwon Alexander 49ers Jersey . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Steve Young Jersey . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. http://www.49ersrookiestore.com/49ers-Roger-Craig-Jersey/ . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. Blitzed by Hawthorn early in the 2014 AFL grand final, fast-starting Sydney are making sure the boot is now firmly on the other foot.Hawthorn ensured the last two grand finals were practically over by halftime thanks to dominant opening terms and the Swans are keen to emulate those feats.In 2014 they kicked five goals to two against Sydney in the first quarter and outscored them six to three in the second to lead by 42 points at halftime.It was more of the same in 2015, when the Hawks kicked five majors to West Coasts one in the opening term and were 31 up by the long break.In the past two weeks, Sydney have burnt off Adelaide and Geelong in similar fashion.They kicked seven goals in the first quarter of both games, having never previously booted more than six in the opening period of a finals fixture.The start will again be crucial when they face the Western Bulldogs in Saturdays grand final at the MCG.We understand the importance of starting well, Sydney ruckman Kurt Tippett told AAP.We always try to focus on our first couple of contests and and then flow from there.As a group, were well aware of how important the start is.The Swans have won 119 out of 25 first quarters, this season and havent trailed by more than 11 points at quarter time of any match. Colin Kaepernick 49ers Jersey. Sydney have kicked five or more goals in eight opening quarters this year, but their defence has also played a big part in their strong starts.Only twice this year have Sydney conceded more than three goals in an opening term, and they still won both games.They have kept five teams goalless till quarter time, among them competition heavy-hitters, Hawthorn, Geelong and Greater Western Sydney.The Bulldogs have also kicked five or more goals eight times in the first quarter, buthave been outscored in 11 of their 25 opening terms.Both clubs are among the top four in the competition in disposals, clearances, stoppages and tackles,I think the first half of footy is going to be red hot, said former Swans and Bulldogs forward Barry Hall.If the Bulldogs can stay with them, and I hope they can, they are a chance.Well see what sort of spirit theyve got in the second half of footy.They just play games out..

PITTSBURGH -- Two teams currently heading in opposite directions will meet again Saturday, for the second of three games in Pittsburgh this weekend. Custom Orlando Magic Jerseys .The Chicago Cubs are coming off their fourth straight loss after allowing five combined runs to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the seventh and eighth innings of an 8-4 loss Friday. Meanwhile, the Pirates have won eight of their past nine games to pull within 7.5 games of the National League Central-leading Cubs.Cubs manager Joe Maddon didnt hide his frustration Friday night.Were just not able to play through our mistakes like we did at the beginning of the year, Maddon said. No excuses. Weve got to play better.Pirates right-handed pitcher Chad Kuhl will make his third MLB start after going 1-0 in his first two. He pitched five innings and allowed three earned runs and four hits in a 4-3 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 6 before going six innings with two runs and seven hits against the Oakland Athletics on July 2.The Pirates won each time the 23-year-old has started, which helped bolster a starting rotation that was laboring through a dismal June.Pittsburgh relied on several young pitchers to fuel its recent turnaround, including Kuhl and right-hander Jameson Taillon. It promoted right-hander Tyler Glasnow, the Pirates top-ranked prospect by Baseball America, on Thursday before optioning him back to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.The youth movement hasnt just belonged to the pitching staff, though. First baseman Josh Bell was promoted from Indianapolis on Friday, when he pinch-hit against Jake Arrieta in the seventh inning and laced a single to center field in his first major league at-bat to help set up the tying run.Hurdle said the Pirates will use Bell as a bat off the bench during the weekend series before re-evaluating the lineup after the All-Star Break. He was impressed with Bells temperament, however, and would be confident using him in a similar position Saturday.My goodness. Big league first at-bat, that scenario? I dont know how much better it gets than that, Hurdle said. Mom and dad are in the park. Laces a ball on the first pitch off a Cy Young winner. Thats awful nice. I dont know if he had that yesterday when he woke up or this morning on the way here not he plane. Good for him and good for us.It will have to be seen if the Pirates youth can help them overcome veteran left-hander Jon Lester on Saturday.Lester has rolled to a 9-4 record with a 2.67 ERA, but is coming off his worst start of the season. He went just 1 1/3 innings and allowed eight earned runs on nine hits in Chicagos 14-3 loss to the New York Mets on July 3.In his previous three starts against Pittsburgh this season, Lester has allowed four combined runs across 18 1/3 innings pitched in three wins. He had his least impressive performance against the Pirates when he last faced them, allowing three runs in six innings, but winning 4-3 on June 18. Shaquille ONeal Magic Jersey . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. Timofey Mozgov Magic Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.magicauthentic.com/kids-jerian-grant-magic-jersey/ . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. Theyve jettisoned over 700 games of AFL experience this week, but Sydney are adamant they have picked on form and arent taking Carlton lightly.Sydneys three oldest players Ted Richards (33), Jarrad McVeigh (31) and Ben McGlynn (30) wont be facing the Blues at the SCG on Saturday.Co-captain McVeigh tweaked his groin at training, while McGlynn and Richards were both dropped.Among the inclusions were debutant Jordan Foote and Richards younger brother Xavier, who has played just two senior games.Sydney will field nine players with fewer than 30 appearances and five with ten or less.If they (Carlton) have done their homework they will see that Xavier has kicked 20 goals in the last three or four (NEAFL) games and Jordan Foote had played hard all season, Swans senior assistant coach Stuart Dew told AAP.If they take those guys lightly they will get a shock. Weve picked a team that we feel is fit and in-form and we certainly havent disrespected Carlton in any way.We really went with form players regardless of their age.After losing three of their last five games, including successive home matches Sydney have slipped back into the pack.Sydney top the AFLs contested possessions category and Carlton are bottom and while Sydney have had a distracted build-up with the arrest of injured defender Michael Talia, Dew is adamant the Swans wont be off their game. Grant Hill Jersey. .He hasnt really been mentioned this week because its been dealt with by the club really swiftly, Dew said.Carlton regain spearhead Levi Casboult from suspension, and Blaine Boekhorst returns for his first game since round three following hamstring and wrist problems.While the Swans suggested they would try to keep a close rein or rising Blues star Patrick Cripps, Carlton coach Brendon Bolton remains adamant the young midfielder needs no protection from his more senior teammates.Hell be up for the fight, theres no doubt about that, Bolton said.Hes a big boy. I dont think he needs protection.Stoppages are going to be critical and we know they have got some real strong bodies in around there.Its going to be a great contest for Gibbs, Curnow and Cripps, so were really looking forward to that challenge.

AVONDALE, Ariz. Rickey Henderson Jersey . -- The Carl Edwards hauler sits 10th among the haulers in the Sprint Cup garage area, where they line up by organization based on owner points.With Joe Gibbs Racing having the third-best spot in owner points (behind Hendrick and Penske) and Edwards last among the JGR drivers in points, it would appear as if this team is among those in the dogfight for a spot in the championship.But thanks to Edwards win Sunday at Texas, he doesnt have to worry about his finish this weekend. Its the same for Jimmie Johnson, who won at Martinsville.When those two drivers talk about this weekend, they dont mind looking ahead. They are among the four drivers who will advance out of the semifinal round and be eligible for the championship Nov. 20 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.Johnson can barely remember -- or doesnt choose to remember -- his 11th-place run at Phoenix in March. The Chase for the Sprint Cup makes its next stop Sunday in Phoenix.I know I ran OK, but even that is a little vague because I jumped right over my Phoenix prep and have been focused on Homestead, Johnson readily admitted earlier this week.The same could be said for Edwards, who got out of his race-winning car at Texas and minutes later was talking to crew chief Dave Rogers about Homestead.Dave was actually trying to shut me up, Edwards said. I started talking about Homestead already.Everything we do now will be geared to making sure that that Homestead weekend, we do it perfectly. I relish the opportunity to go focus for ... 14 days on trying to give a championship effort.While Edwards celebrated, he has three teammates who enter Homestead without a guarantee they will advance. Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin are among the six drivers vying for the two remaining spots.Obviously, theyre a little more relaxed, I would assume, this weekend in a way, Kenseth said. But yet Im sure theyre also thinking ahead to Homestead. Im sure theyre thinking about this weekend to try to get their car running as good as they can to try to help two more cars get in there from the organization.I dont know that its a lot different.Edwards wont have to worry about anything this weekend. He wont have to play over what happened in March at Phoenix, where he probably could have won if he had raced a little rougher on the final lap and slammed doors a little harder with Kevin Harvick.Its one last week to just go have some fun, hopefully get another trophy and prepare for Homestead, Edwards said. Texas was the biggest win of our season, and coming off of that we are really looking forward to going to Phoenix and just focus on getting another win.Phoenix is a special track for me. Its the first place I ever raced on pavement. [Ive had a] lot of great runs there and a lot of wins [and a] very close race in the spring. That last lap was a blast.Johnson will try to keep the pressure on his team only in hopes that they continue to feel a sense of having to perform under pressure. Thats a noble goal, but no one can pretend to mimic the pressure of Homestead when the finish at Phoenix doesnt matter.Still, Johnson hopes his team takes a businesslike approach even knowing they have a clean slate next week.We could all use practice with pressure because Homestead will bring a lot of pressure, Johnson said. So pressure is good for us. We will be racing for every point we can race for, even if we are locked in. We will race our race and let everyone else race theirs.The difference between Johnson and Edwards comes in the number of championships they have won. Johnson has six and goes for his seventh next week. Edwards has none, losing by the closest of margins in 2011 when Tony Stewart beat him on a tiebreaker by winning at Homestead, with Edwards finishing second.Its not just going there like we did in 2011 to race against one guy in championship form -- were going to go there and race against three guys, one of which is a six-time champion [at the] top of his game, Edwards said. I know whoever else is in there is going to be tough as nails.Its cool. If were able to win that, stand ... with that championship trophy, were going to have earned it. Thats as good as it gets. Austin Hedges Padres Jersey . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team.

Were halfway through?another season, and its time for my midseason All-Rookie team. Mikhail Sergachev Jersey . Take a look at my preseason team -- pretty good! Lots of hits and a few misses.It was tough at a few positions -- namely quarterback and wide receiver -- but other position groups have struggled. The defensive tackle and cornerback classes havent been stellar so far.You can also see my updated Rookie Big Board below.

He doesnt have a rushing touchdown, and the Eagles are 4-3. The difference in Total QBR is stark -- Prescott ranks third in the league (81.3), while Wentz is 27th (49.4).

Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. OTTAWA -- Its textbook media training for hockey players: dont utter a word about the next round of the playoffs until you have all four games of your current series in the bag. Its a lesson Sidney Crosby has apparently learned well. "Im not talking about anything ahead of Game 5," was all the Pittsburgh Penguins captain would say when asked about a potential Eastern Conference final against, likely, the Boston Bruins. But after Wednesday nights 7-3 blowout of the Ottawa Senators, its hard to imagine Crosby and his teammates arent starting to think about their next trip to Beantown. Pittsburgh now holds a 3-1 series lead heading into a pivotal Game 5 at home on Friday. The Penguins didnt just beat the Senators in Game 4 of their semifinal series. They obliterated them. For a time -- until, say, Pittsburghs four-goal romp in the third period -- it looked like Ottawa might make this a series. The Senators got on the scoreboard early in the first period -- and just like Sundays double-overtime marathon win in Game 3, they did it the hard way. With defenceman Sergei Gonchar in the penalty box, Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson fed the puck up the middle to a streaking Milan Michalek, who broke through the Penguins defence and beat Tomas Vokoun low on the glove side to put Ottawa up 1-0. It was the first time Ottawa has led this series. But it wouldnt last. A hot goalie can only take a team so far, and any team that lets the star-studded Penguins shoot at will is bound to eventually give up a goal. Thats exactly what happened when Ottawa lost a face-off in its own end and James Neal was there to pick up the loose puck. He fired a shot into the back of the net to tie the game at one goal apiece. The pesky Sens, as the Twitter hash tag goes, battled back. Kyle Turris swept the puck past a sprawling Tomas Vokoun to put Ottawa ahead once more. It was the last time the Senators would have more goals on the scoreboard than Pittsburgh. Chris Kunitz snuck behind the Senators defence and put one past Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson. Less than a minute later, aa rebound landed right on the tape of Jarome Iginlas stick and he made it 3-2 Penguins. Ondrej Palat Jersey. Ottawa got a lot of chances in the latter half of the second period. Unfortunately for the Senators, none got by Vokoun. The Penguins netminder ended the night with 30 saves. After that, it was all Pittsburgh. Neal, Pascal Dupuis, Crosby, Iginla -- boom, boom, boom, boom. Four Penguins goals in the third period put the game out of reach for Ottawa. Senators coach Paul MacLean pulled Anderson after he let in six goals on 38 shots. Andersons replacement, Robin Lehner, allowed one goal on four shots. Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said the firing-range approach was the only way his team was going to beat Anderson. "There was a sense like, OK, this might take as many shots as we can muster to break this guy. And fortunately, we kept on that mindset," Bylsma said. "It was a matter of, we are going to have to fire anything and everything we can at this guy to get one by him." Alfredsson marked a bittersweet milestone by notching his 100th career playoff point with a power-play goal late in the third period to make it 7-3. It was too little, too late. Only twice before have the Senators given up seven goals in a playoff game: against the Buffalo Sabres in 2006 and against the Penguins in 2010. Over in the Senators dressing room, the players were taking another page from hockey talk 101: put on a brave face when facing almost certain elimination. "I know what were going to do," Alfredsson said. "Were going to go out and play one hell of a game. That doesnt worry me at all. We never quit and thats not going to stop now. We know the odds are against us in every way, but we never quit and thats going to continue." Said defenceman Chris Phillips: "Its not where we want to be, but thats where we are." MacLean imparted a final lesson after the game: when you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. The Senators coach tersely told journalists to look at the scoresheet before leaving the room without taking any questions. ' ' '

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Bob Costas and other top members of NBCs Olympics coverage team veered between optimism and caution in predicting Rio de Janeiros ability to pull off a successful Summer Games and said NBC will cover the good and bad.Other Olympics have taken place without significant difficulties and he hopes it will be the same for Rio, Costas said Tuesday. But he then ticked off the daunting list of challenges faced by the Brazilian city.It would be naive to think it isnt grappling with security worries, pollution and political turmoil along with a deep recession thats occurred since Rio won the Games, Costas said.He spoke to TV critics from Rio by satellite, along with executive producer Jim Bell and correspondent Mary Carillo. The opening ceremony airs Friday on NBC, which is carrying the games on the air and online.Whether any city can carry off the immense event is the question heading into virtually every Olympics, Bell said. Then the athletes arrive, the Olympic torch is lit and that is the story the network tells, he said.But if a host city falls short, he said, then NBC should focus on that.Costas said that any security issues or ill effects from contaminated water will be immediately apparent and have to be addressed. So far, the best advice given athletes competing in open-water sailing or swimming events is to close their mouths and keep their heads above water, he added.I guess some new techniques will be required, Costas said, sarcastically, adding, Im not trying to be facetious here, but its going to be impossible, in some cases, not to address some of the issues that have come up before the Olympics, because they will directly (effect) the competition.Many open-water competition test events have been held and resulted in zero problems so far, Belll said. Darius Slay Jr Youth Jersey. When Carillo chimed in that she will be helping to cover those contests, Costas asked her if she planned to take a dip yourself.Absolutely not, she replied. She added, however, that shes been told that open-water swimmers in the 2012 London Olympics faced dirtier conditions from goose droppings in Hyde Parks Serpentine lake.According to a 16-month-long study commissioned by The Associated Press, the waterways of Rio de Janeiro remain as filthy as ever just days before the Games begin and are contaminated with raw human sewage teeming with dangerous viruses and bacteria.If illness or other crises arise, does NBC bear some responsibility for what happens because of the large license fee it pays to the International Olympics Committee, the NBC team was asked.I dont think so, Bell replied.Costas expanded on that answer, saying that the Rio Games would happen without NBCs involvement. The argument could be made that the IOC should have considered moving or postponing it, given the problems that began emerging months ago, he said.But once the games were being held, the network that owned the rights to televise those games was going to televise them, Costas said, adding that the question about network responsibility becomes how thoroughly and credibly do we cover it.His expectation is that NBC Sports and NBC News will not shy away from that, Costas said.Asked if NBC could have used its financial-stake clout to influence the IOC, Bell said he didnt think so.You could make the case Zika is a bigger story in Florida than in Rio, where it is winter, and cooler and drier, he said. Is Disneyland responsible for bringing people to Florida? ' ' '
Chloe Esposito has a million-dollar smile that outshines even the gold medal she won at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro; a medal that, incidentally, cost her country less than any other Australian gold won in Brazil. Matt Hedges USA Jersey .The much maligned Winning Edge program, set up after the 2012 Olympic Games in London, pumped funding into sports deemed most likely to garner a gold rush in Rio. It missed a trick with Esposito, whose sport of Modern Pentathlon was viewed as too niche for investment.Which begs the question: If golden glory is the holy grail of sports funding, shouldnt there be some allowance for individual achievement in less fashionable disciplines?Gold medals from the Rio games are 85mm in diameter and weigh 500 gram; they are 92 percent silver with just 6g of actual gold and the rest a copper filler; they are worth in real market terms about $Aus260 for the gold component, and maybe $Aus500-700 for the whole disc combined.To hold one in your hand, though, fills you with wonderment. You can literally feel the hours of training, the sacrifices made, the tears and the joy that went into claiming it.There are a few scratches on Chloe Espositos medal; its been handled by many people -- all keen to bask, if just for a few seconds, in the golden glow that engulfed the modern pentathlete on Aug. 20, 2016. And some of those scratches, perhaps, best reflect the journey of the effervescent young woman who became the first modern pentathlon competitor from outside Europe to stand atop the Olympic podium in 100 years.There is no denying Modern Pentathlon is a niche sport; in fact its five sports, and participation does not come cheaply. Funding is scarce. Chloes father, Daniel, who is also her coach and an Olympian in his own right, estimates keeping Chloe and her brother and fellow Rio Olympian Max at a competitive level, costs around $Aus500,000 per year.The majority of that money has to come out of the Esposito pockets.There is no elite training base for modern pentathletes in Australia. When ESPN asks Esposito where the headquarters in Australia are, her fiancé jokingly chips in with her home address; ironically its probably true.Daniel Esposito, who walks a tightrope between his professional role and just being dad, is an expert in his field having competed at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. He knows what it takes to beat the world, and that means seeking out training environments that regularly pit you against the best competitors on the planet.?For the Espositos, that meant a move to Italy, then Hungary, in their quest to give their talented children the opportunity to fulfill their potential.For mum, Suzanne, the balance has been equally challenging as she juggles the responsibilities of the familys swimming school back home in Sydney while supporting a family all over the globe. That family also includes daughter Emily, a talented shooter who was based in Melbourne at the time, finessing a successful sporting career between two jobs and a university degree in Speech Therapy as well as qualification tournaments held in far flung countries such as Azerbaijan.Despite the lions share of the responsibility falling on the shoulders of the family, the Espositos have an influential champion in their corner. Australias 2016 Chef de Mission, Kitty Chiller, is an Olympian in modern pentathlon (Sydney 2000), and her delight in Chloe and Maxs success in Rio was palpable among myriad other issues her role demanded of her.Not just a former competitor, Chiller is President of Modern Pentathlon Australia, and her intensive lobbying for the sport saw some much needed funding go to the Esposito quest for excellence.Reports list the investment in modern pentathlon for this most recent Olympic cycle at around $Aus190,000, compared with the cost of the bronze medal in Archery at just over $Aus2.6 million, and that of swimming ($Aus4 million per medal) and cycling ($Aus16.3 million per medal). One can quite confidently assume that Kitty Chiller will be advocating strongly that modern pentathlon is worth a whole lot more in dollar value over the next four years.You dont need to be a genius to see that, statistically, the Winning Edge program has a greater likelihood of return on investment in sports with a larger number of participants, ergo possible champions. However, with medals in Tokyo 2020 the next target, is there room to think outside the box?Max Esposito finished seventh at the Rio Olympic Games, the same place sister Chloe finished in London on her debut. He also started the final stage with a 45-second handicap -- exactly the same as his gold medal-winning sister -- and he finished just 6 seconds from a bronze medal.Max Esposito may have played a crucial role as training partner for his sister in the past, but the individual achievements of the 19 year-old have not gone unnoticed.The portents are all there: Max Esposito was the youngest competitor in the mens modern pentathlon field in Rio, he has years of competition ahead of him, and his older sister has proved there might be gold in them thar hills.In four years time, could there be two Espositos on the podium for modern pentathlon?Surely a little lateral thinking could see an opportunity here.How about a Wild Card system? A funding pool that sits separately within the Winning Edge Program to be allocated to an individual or individuals with proven potential to win Olympic medals, world titles, and so on?A selection committee could interview eligible applicants who do not qualify under the usual scheme. The relevant sporting body could present their unique situation, and funding could be awarded on a case-by-case basis offering an athlete with a good chance of a podium finish in a more obscure sport, such as modern pentathlon, a one-off chance for support through a single Olympic cycle.This would both reward the athlete for their achievements and alleviate financial pressure on those who excel in sports that are not beneficiaries of investment on a large scale, while absolving the ASC/AIS of the responsibility of overexposing themselves for the long term in areas that could generate a public backlash.When modern pentathlon was introduced to the Olympic Games in Stockholm in 1912, it was founder of the Modern Olympics Baron Pierre de Coubertins belief that it would be this event, above all others, that tested a mans moral qualities as much as his physical resources and skills, producing thereby the ideal, complete athlete.Im sure in current times he would have agreed a woman was equally capable.The true value of an Olympic gold medal can in no way be measured by the market price of the metal from which it is made. The worth most certainly lies in the value of the neck it is placed around at an Olympiad.And Chloe Espositos medal definitely found a home around the neck of a rare jewel -- an unaffected, delightful embodiment of the spirit of Olympic competition.That has to be worth something? Kellyn Acosta USA Jersey .

SEPANG, Malaysia -- First practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix had to be suspended in order to put out a fire out on Kevin Magnussens car.The car caught fire on its return to the pits at the start of the session, forcing Magnussen to leap from the cockpit as flames engulfed the airbox above his head. Renaults pit crew were quick to extinguish the initial fire, but a fuel leak at the top of the car meant the bodywork ignited several more times before it could be safely returned to the garage.With the Renault stricken in the pit lane and surrounded by fire marshals, media and Renault mechanics, the session was red flagged for 15 minutes until it could be safely removed. After several more flash fires, Renault was able to drain the car of fuel and finally return it to the pits where the long job of dismantling and cleaning the car began.Unsurprisingly, Magnussen took no further part in the session.Explaining what happened, Renault technical chief Nick Chester told Sky Sports F1: We had a fueel leak from a breather. Andrija Novakovich USA Jersey. We were running the tank full and running some experimental parts for Mexico, so a different set-up to the other car. Were looking at what happened.It looks like the tank has pressurised. Were investigating now ...?Theres a bit of loom damage, obviously a lot to clean up, but hopefully well get it out for FP2.When the fire initially started, several of the mechanics dealing with it were not wearing overalls as it reignited several times. Chester said the team did all it could to ensure the situation was dealt with safely.?Everyone looks OK, which is the main thing ... There was quite a bit of dust around but everyone seems to be fine.Obviously it should be people who wear overalls who go to that first. I think some people stepped in early on but we did make the call it should only be people with overalls on who deal with it. ' ' '
Jamie Redknapp thinks Manchester United are changing manager at the right time, even if Jose Mourinho will not alter his style at Old Trafford. Tracy Mcgrady Magic Jersey . Mourinho is expected to be named the next United manager in the coming days as Louis van Gaals two-year spell comes to an end. Man Utd sack LVG Manchester United have sacked manager Louis van Gaal, according to reports Although Van Gaal signed off with victory in the FA Cup final, Redknapp told Sky Sports that Mourinho is the right option for his replacement. It was the right time to make the move, he said. If you are looking out there then what better option do you have?It just felt like they were treading water. It just didnt seem to work. The crowd never really took to him and the style of football isnt really what they wanted. The brand was struggling because of that. Man United were treading water under Louis van Gaal, according to Redknapp If you are looking to change then Jose Mourinho is a serial winner, he knows how to win. Not always in the most expansive style that the United fans will want, but there is every chance he could be winning trophies for them.While Van Gaal was criticised for failing to make United into an exciting team to watch, there have been questions over whether Mourinho would represent a huge shift in playing style. Alan Smith says Mourinho is the right man to bring excitement back to Old Trafford The former Chelsea manager is not known for an attacking brand of football, and Redknapp said: I dont think he can change and I dont think he will. Jose had success doing things his own way.Sometimes we are a little bit critical of him, there has been spells when Chelsea played some great football as well. The year they won the cup a couple of years ago, the first 20 games they were fantastic.Once they had to win the league and they realised they had to get across the line, they did it in a Jose sort of style. They can be expansive. I think the Man Utd fans just want to play some good football and win some games, for it to be a bit more exciting. There will be goals there. Marcus Rashford flourished under Louis van Gaal Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by Chelsea in December.He left the Blues 16th in the Premier League, having lost nine of their 16 league games.He lost his way this season and threw his toys out of the pram regularly, said Redknapp. You cant behave like that if you are the Man Utd manager.  You have to be outstanding and do it correctly. I think Man Utd fans, the club and the board would ask that of him.Another question of Mourinho is whether he would continue to give chances to Uniteds youth players. Mourinho and Man Utd A timeline of events involving Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal and Manchester United The likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Timothy Fosu-Mensah all got opportunities under Van Gaal this season.My worry will be if you are a young player at the club, said Redknapp. Jose has always had a reputation for never giving young players a chance.People like Rashford will be a little nervous, thinking well if they bring in a big striker what does that mean for me. I hope he sticks to the principles of what United have always done and give youth players a chance.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Veteran wide receiver Lance Moore retired Monday, telling the Atlanta Falcons his heart wasnt in it only three days after signing with the team as a free agent.The Falcons announced Moores retirement before practice. Coach Dan Quinn said he admired Moores integrity.Ive got a lot of respect for him as a man, Quinn said. I thought it was real admirable, his approach. What a pro to say, `If my heart is not in it, I want to make sure Im not taking the opportunity from somebody else. I thought, what a classy guy.I wish him the best. A guy like that you know is going to be very successful past his football career.Moore, the former longtime New Orleans Saints receiver, signed Friday to compete for the No. 5 spot at his position. He was competing for a spot behind Juulio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Justin Hardy, Eric Weems and possibly rookie Devin Fuller. Timofey Mozgov Jersey.
