Legends demand dissolution of WICB

first_img STRUCTURAL REFORMS ST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC): West Indies cricket legends are demanding the “immediate resignation” of the Dave Cameron-led West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), in line with the recommendations of the WICB/Caricom Governance Review Panel. The legends are also insisting on the establishment of an interim board and the creation of a new structure to replace the WICB and manage the regional game. In a statement released after a meeting in Grenada, the legends have called for the WICB to honour a promise that it made to accept the recommendations of the WICB/Caricom Governance Review Panel. WICB had given a commitment to implement the recommendations during a meeting with the legends and Caricom chairman, Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell, in Grenada year ago, but has since been accused of reneging. “We, the Legends call on the WICB to honour its solemn promise to Caribbean prime ministers in April 2015 to accept and implement the recommendations of the WICB/CARICOM Governance Review Panel – the immediate resignation of current directors, the establishment of an interim board and the design of a new board structure,” the legends said in a statement released late Monday. Legends participating in the meeting at the Spice Island Beach Resort last Thursday were Sir Gary Sobers, Sir Wes Hall, Sir Vivian Richards, Sir Andy Roberts, Deryck Murray, Charlie Griffith, Desmond Haynes, as well as former West Indies players Dinanath Ramnarine and Roger Harper. West Indies men’s T20 captain, Darren Sammy and sports psychologist, Dr Rudy Webster, also attended. The legends’ statement also called on Caricom to appoint an independent auditor to carry out a detailed forensic audit of the board and requested that sponsors of West Indies cricket make good governance a condition for financial support. “Continual backing of an inefficient board and an out-of-date structure will result in irreparable damage to West Indies cricket,” said the statement. During their meeting in Grenada, the legends also held discussions with Prime Minister Mitchell, chairman of Caricom’s subcommittee of Cricket Governance. “We are satisfied that Caricom has no intention of engaging in the day-to-day management of West Indies cricket. Caricom’s aim is to help create a structure and an enabling environment in which West Indies cricket can develop and flourish,” the statement pointed out. “During the last two decades, many different presidents and CEOs have led the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), and yet, its performance has declined steadily with each passing year. The board is an oligarchic structure that considers itself answerable to no one but itself.” The statement from the former West Indies cricketers pointed to structural reforms to the Australian, New Zealand, India and England and Wales cricket boards, while accusing the WICB of resisting “all recommendations for structural change”. “In recent years, it has rejected the proposals of the Lucky, Patterson and Wilkin Committees,” the legends said. “And a few months ago, it did the same thing to the recommendations of the WICB/Caricom Committee.” The legends’ statement also said: “We believe that revival of West Indies cricket will only happen when the Board undergoes structural adjustment and when it improves the quality of its communication and leadership and upgrades the management of key relationships.” Pressure has been mounting on Cameron’s WICB to step down after Sammy’s emotional criticism of the board minutes after the regional side regained the T20 World Cup in India recently. The legends, who led a dominant era when West Indies were world beaters, said they are bent on protecting their rich legacy. “Throughout our history, West Indies teams and West Indies players have had great triumphs. We are very proud of our legacy,” the statement said. “We cannot now in good conscience stand idly by and watch everything that we fought so hard to build and achieve disappear right before our eyes because of the actions of inept board members and an incompetent board.”last_img read more

Lampard ready to make LA move – report

first_imgFrank Lampard is ready to become David Beckham’s replacement at Los Angeles Galaxy, according to the Daily Mirror.The MLS outfit are one of several clubs to have been linked with Lampard, whose Chelsea contract expires at the end of the season.Chelsea will reportedly not offer him a new deal or allow him to leave in January – apparently ruling out a move to QPR for the 34-year-old and leaving him on course for a summer switch to the States.With Beckham leaving the Galaxy, Lampard could take advantage of the ‘designated player’ rule and not be subject to the MLS salary cap.This page is regularly updated. 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

About Those Falcons Play Calls …

Related: Hot Takedown Even if the Patriots had stopped Freeman short of the sticks on 3rd-and-1, it would have run 30 more seconds off the clock, and an average Matt Bosher punt would have placed the Patriots inside their own 20-yard line with less than eight minutes to play. Instead, the Falcons’ only turnover of the game gave the Patriots the ball 5 yards from the red zone with 8:24 left on the clock. Even an unsuccessful run and decent punt at this juncture might have been enough to win the game, considering that the Patriots would go on to score the game-tying touchdown with just 57 seconds left. (Then again, having one fewer minute may have just meant that the Patriots would have scored even faster.)Incredibly, Shanahan and the Falcons later doubled down on their mistake.On the ensuing Falcons possession, Ryan gripped it and ripped it. The Falcons moved from their own 10-yard line to the Patriots’ 22 with a 2-yard run sandwiched between two deep passes. They then ran once, for a loss of a yard, shaving 44 seconds off the clock. Then, Shanahan dialed up another pass — and Ryan took his fifth sack.“You don’t think, just run the ball and make your guy kick a 50-yard field goal,” Shanahan told reporters after the game. But wait — why wouldn’t you think that?Running two more times, even for no gain, would have forced the Patriots to burn two timeouts. The Falcons were on the Patriots’ 23-yard line; a field-goal attempt from there would have been 40 yards, not 50. Falcons kicker Matt Bryant has made 78.2 percent of his career kicks from between 40 and 49 yards. With the score 28-20, going up by 11 with less than four minutes to play would likely have been as effective a dagger as going up by 15.In the end, Shanahan, Ryan and the Falcons offense can point to just about any metric and say they put together a masterful offensive game. They averaged a whopping 7.5 yards per play over the course of the game, far more than the Patriots’ 5.9, or even the Falcons’ league-leading regular-season average of 6.7.But sometimes the best performance in a vacuum isn’t the optimal performance in a game situation. That’s something Shanahan, reportedly set to become the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, is going to have to learn. Every Super Bowl loser wants a do-over, but no team has had as disastrous an ending as Atlanta had in the final nine minutes of Super Bowl LI. If the Falcons were given 1,000 do-overs, they would have been expected, according to ESPN’s win probability model, to win the game 996 times.All the Falcons needed was one more point, one defensive stop or perhaps even just one more minute of burnt clock to zero out the New England Patriots’ 0.4 percent chance to surmount a nigh-insurmountable lead.Why didn’t they?“I think we ran out of gas,” Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said at his post-game press conference. Even so, Quinn’s offensive machine should have been able to coast to the finish line after being up 28-12 with possession of the ball and less than 10 minutes to play. Instead, bad decision-making turned domination into capitulation.The Falcons, as I wrote one FiveThirtyEight’s Super Bowl live blog, had been stunningly effective on the ground all game. The Patriots’ rush defense ranked fourth in Football Outsiders’ Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) this season, yet the Falcons had piled up 94 yards and a touchdown on just 14 carries.Starting at the 9:40 mark, Falcons running back Tevin Coleman ran on first and second down, getting injured on the latter play but setting up 3rd-and-1 from the team’s own 36-yard line. Rather than dial up another clock-eating run, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan called a pass play. Coleman’s backfield partner, Devonta Freeman, whiffed on his blocking assignment, and Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was strip-sacked.After the Patriots capitalized on the turnover with a touchdown, the Falcons ran 11 offensive plays — and only two of them were runs. Despite needing more than anything to wind the clock down to zero, Shanahan gave only two more carries to Freeman, who’d been averaging 8.2 yards per carry until that point.This is where football coaches, who spend numerous hours micro-analyzing schemes and matchups as they build out their game plans, can lose the forest for the trees. It may well be that Shanahan had a perfect play called up for that situation, or a matchup he knew Ryan could exploit. Ryan, after all, had completed 13 of 16 passes to that point; another short completion seemed like an easy ask. But the Falcons needed to maximize their chance of finishing the game with more points, not their offensive efficiency. Should Terrell Owens Be In The Hall of Fame? read more

Tuchel urgently needs a midfielder for Paris SaintGermain

first_imgAhead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Coupe de France match against Strasbourg, manager Thomas Tuchel called in for a new winter transfer.Paris Saint-Germain’s midfield problem reached a whole new tipping point this past weekend, as manager Thomas Tuchel just lost Italian Marco Verratti due to a nasty ankle injury he suffered against Guingamp.This situation has taken the club to act under extreme circumstances, mainly because Adrien Rabiot is also officially out of the club and won’t play more for PSG after deciding to not renew his contract.The situation has taken a whole new level after Verratti’s incident, it has pushed manager Thomas Tuchel to emergency mode and to publicly beg the PSG board of directors to act quickly before the winter transfer window ends.The major urgency is obviously for a new midfielder, but the market is not as accommodating as it may appear for a club like PSG.Chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has always been a tough negotiator with other clubs, which means that they tend to return the favor and make things very difficult for when he is the one in dire need of new players.Tuchel is aware of this and he is scared that things won’t go his way before the window closes, this may leave PSG very exposed for the rest of the season as they won’t have a proper replacement for their absentee players.It is very, very serious for us – PSG boss Tuchel wants midfielder in January window https://t.co/xRoyA1tV5R pic.twitter.com/pmXKJ4DQus— Goal Ghana (@goal_ghana) January 22, 2019“It’s January 21 and we have needs,” Tuchel revealed to reporters ahead of a Coupe de France home match against Strasbourg on Wednesday via Goal.“We lost Adrien Rabiot, Lass Diarra and Marco Verratti, the situation has not improved. We stay with our decision [on Rabiot] because Marco returns in a few weeks. We stay with our basic choice.”“We have recovered Dani Alves in this role but it is very, very serious for us. Who do I want? Yeah, yeah, I know. Unfortunately I cannot tell you!”“Julian Draxler has the quality to play with us because he can adapt and he is very, very reliable in many positions.”“Dani Alves will play in the middle against Strasbourg, with his quality and mentality he has done incredible workouts. Draxler has a more offensive profile than he and Marquinhos.”“I have already talked a lot about Adrien and this subject. I can only repeat that it’s a thing between the club and him.”“This is the second-best attack in Ligue 1, they are also very strong in the defensive game, they are in a phase with four wins in a row away,” Tuchel added.Opinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…“It has been experienced there [in Strasbourg] that they are very serious and aggressive. It was very difficult to have opportunities and score.”“It’s a big challenge to play against Strasbourg. We must play at a top level,” he concluded.Tuchel on Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl: “I cannot talk about players who play for another club. Julian was a player of mine, but he is still a Dortmund player today. We are working hard to bring in a defensive midfielder.” #PSGEAG— Jonathan Johnson (@Jon_LeGossip) January 18, 2019For PSG things are very clear, they are currently fighting against Barcelona to sign Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong but the negotiations are proving very difficult.There are very few other options that the French club is actually considering, they wanted Denis Suarez to be part of the deal with Adrien Rabiot but Arsenal seems to be getting in the way of that negotiation.Paris Saint-Germain’s clock is ticking, they are quite desperate to get this new midfielder as soon as possible and not finding one could mean that they won’t be able to compete in the Champions League against Manchester United.This might be the very last chance that manager Thomas Tuchel has to prove that he is the right man for the job, because getting eliminated by the Red Devils will bring about his dismissal and quite possibly the exit of either Neymar or Kylian Mbappe.The most immediate worry for the French giants is Strasbourg, they don’t want to get eliminated from this tournament as they did from Coupe de la Ligue last week against Guingamp.📰 [SPORT] | Tottenham ready to bid for Rabiot in January.🔶According to Mirror, Spurs has joined the list of bidders for the PSG midfielder which includes Barça.🔷He finishes his contract in June 2019 and has already rejected the last offer of PSG despite Tuchel’s praise. pic.twitter.com/qWflq5zzX4— BarçaTimes (@BarcaTimes) October 3, 2018Which midfielder would you like PSG to sign during this winter transfer window?

Hourlong daytime nap ups diabetes risk

first_imgWhile taking a short nap may be good for your health, extending it to an hour or more significantly increases risk of developing diabetes, says a new study.“Excessive daytime sleepiness and taking longer naps were associated with increased risk of Type-2 diabetes, with a short nap not increasing this risk,” the study said. The research by Tomohide Yamada from University of Tokyo in Japan analysed studies published till November 2014 on the association between daytime sleepiness, nap, and diabetes.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’After examining over 600 hundred studies including 261,365 people from Asian and Western countries, the research found that excessive daytime sleepiness increased the risk of diabetes by 56 per cent, while a longer daytime nap of 60 minutes or more increased the risk by 46 per cent. In contrast, a shorter nap (60 mins or less per day) did not increase the risk of diabetes. The analysis showed there was no effect of napping up to about 40 minutes per day, after which risk began to increase sharply.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“Daytime napping might be a consequence of night-time sleep disturbance such as obstructive sleep aponea (OSA),” the study noted.Several studies have demonstrated the beneficial effects of taking short naps less than 30 minutes in duration, which help to increase alertness and motor skills. “A short nap finishes before the onset of deep slow-wave sleep. Entering deep slow-wave sleep and then failing to complete the normal sleep cycle can result in a phenomenon known as sleep inertia, in which a person feels groggy, disoriented, and even sleepier than before napping,” Yamada said.“Although the mechanisms by which a short nap might decrease the risk of diabetes are still unclear, such duration-dependent differences in the effects of sleep might partly explain our findings,” Yamada noted.last_img read more
