Premier League players ‘offered incentives’ by clubs

first_imgPremier League stars feel that their clubs are trying to influence them with unethical behaviour as teams gear up for the crucial Project Restart vote next week. Premier League fixtures are currently suspended until April 30 due to the coronavirus crisis ( Top-flight chiefs have desperately been trying to find a way to return to action, despite hundreds of people still being killed by coronavirus every day in the United Kingdom. And according to the Mail, Premier League stars are growing increasingly “wary of their employers’ motives”. This is a crucial week for the league, as it tries desperately to get the show back on the road in order to avoid devastating financial consequences. But while Premier League officials are all hoping to get things back up and running, not every club feels the same way. In fact, different clubs appear to hold different party lines, with a divide opening between the top and the bottom. And it has even been suggested that players feel that it has been hinted that they could benefit from new contracts if they adhere to their club’s stance. Loading… Clubs are also trying to get their senior pros to rally their players, whether that be over Project Restart, or taking wage reductions. Players will have to sign a Covid-19 code of practice before any resumption. But there is talk that teams that aren’t keen on the plans to return, are encouraging sceptical players not to sign them. Enough players not signing up would derail the plans entirely. And while top clubs are fine with this, desperate to get the season finished, many clubs still threatened by relegation feel that it threatens the integrity of the competition to surrender home advantage. read also:Bid to replace Ndidi: Leicester battle Inter for Real Betis star The earliest possible vote on Project Restart would be next Monday.

England to join Windies in wearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ logo

first_imgLONDON (Reuters) – England will join West Indies in wearing a “Black Lives Matter” logo on their shirts during the three-match Test series, the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Thursday.West Indies had earlier announced they would be wearing the logo designed by Alisha Hosannah, the partner of Troy Deeney, captain of Premier League soccer side Watford.Deeney was contacted by the ECB and Cricket West Indies and permission was granted for the logo to be displayed on the collar of the shirts, in line with International Cricket Council regulations.ECB chief executive Tom Harrison said the move to display an anti-racism message supported “progress and societal change” and did not extend to being an endorsement of any political organisation.“We are aware of certain aspects of the movement that promote their own political views, and their actions are not supported in any way by the ECB and our players,” Harrison said in a statement.“This moment is about unity. We are proud that our players will stand alongside those from the West Indies and wear a logo that embodies that philosophy.“It is fitting that they do so in solidarity with athletes from the football world who wore it first.”At the hearing of the Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) Committee this week, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters defended the players’ decision to wear “Black Lives Matter” on their shirts, describing the cause as a moral one.England captain Joe Root, who will miss the first test to be at the birth of his child, said the players were hoping to use the international platform to eradicate racial prejudice.“There has to be equal opportunity and equal rights for all,” he added.Ben Stokes will lead England in the first test against West Indies, which starts in a bio-secure environment at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton on Wednesday.last_img read more

Rower Tupek striving to meet lofty expectations in 2005

first_imgLast year, Wisconsin oarsman Mike Tupek was something of an anomaly.As the only member of his class placed in the top shell as a sophomore, Tupek found himself among a group of experienced rowers vying for a place among the national elite. As the youngest member of the varsity eights, he experienced the high of Wisconsin’s shocking upset of West Coast powerhouse Washington and the low of a disappointing finish at the Intercollegiate Rowing Regatta.Now, after the departure of multiple seniors — including the last remnants of Wisconsin’s third-ranked boat of 2003 — Tupek has suddenly become the cagey veteran.Yet Wisconsin head coach Chris Clark still expects improvement from his standout junior rower. After mustering an impressive debut season in the freshman eights, Tupek suffered somewhat of an off year during his sophomore campaign.“[Tupek] has got to get better,” Clark said. “He came in here with this amazing fire, and last year, I don’t know what it was. He had sort of a strange slump. This year, he is doing better.”As one of the naturally strongest rowers on the team, and also one of the more seasoned, Tupek is being asked to take on more of a leadership role this season. This year’s rowing team is young, with only one senior rower in the first boat. Clark likes Tupek’s aggressive style of rowing and wants other rowers to pick up on that.“Today [in practice], I moved him to stroke, which is like the quarterback because he is super aggressive,” Clark said. “That’s something we often do, is put the most aggressive guy there. He shows other guys that, ‘Oh, this is how it’s supposed to be done.’”Tupek has been in the first boat since his freshman year. Clark is hoping that Tupek’s experience will bear out in the team’s performance not only during practice, but also in the heat of the spring events.“Under the pressure of a big race and the intensity of your competition, you’ll do what is equivalent to a turnover,” Clark said. “Not only do you not win, but you don’t even row your race. Hopefully a guy like [Tupek] can help turn that around. It’s not like you expect him to sit down with everybody and tell tales around the campfire about ‘back when I was a kid,’ but you lead by example.”Tupek’s goals are equivalent to Clark’s. As an individual, his ergometer times and personal achievements are important to him. Yet, ultimately, Tupek wants continuous progress until the Badgers are able to reach the highest level of competition.“Personal expectations are just to improve over past years, both physically and technique-wise,” Tupek said. “As a team, I think the goal is pretty much the same: we want to keep improving each year. If we build a little bit each year, we’ll be back in the running for medals and national championships.”Despite strong recruiting from competing schools, the Bethesda, Md., native eventually chose Wisconsin due to the program’s recent success under Clark and the general appeal of the atmosphere at Madison.“After my recruiting visit, it was pretty unanimous,” Tupek said. “Almost everyone on that same recruiting visit decided this is the place [he wanted] to go. I chose here mostly because, at the time, we were one of the top rowing teams in the country. That was definitely an important part of the decision. Frankly, when I came to visit here, Wisconsin just had a much better atmosphere, in my opinion, and was much more fun.”Academics also played a key role in Tupek’s choice of colleges.“In high school I was strongest at math, so I was interested in engineering,” Tupek said. “The engineering program was strong here, so engineering and rowing basically made my decision to come here.”According to Tupek, he has made the dean’s list four out of his five semesters in Madison. The struggle of balancing his commitment to rowing and his studies has not been difficult for him. Rather, rowing has helped Tupek give his life more structure. “In a way, rowing helps you schedule your homework,” Tupek said. “When you’re not rowing, it’s easy to find distractions and, when you’re rowing, you stay focused on one task. You’re able to focus more on both athletics and academics at the same time.”last_img read more

Shafer, Clawson analyze Syracuse-Wake Forest matchup

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Much like Syracuse, Wake Forest has relied on its defense to keep its team afloat for a good part of the season.The Orange (2-4, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) makes its first in-conference road trip of the season when it takes on the Demon Deacons (2-4, 0-2) on Saturday at noon. It’ll be a matchup between two teams in the lower half of the Atlantic Division with defenses that have compensated for largely struggling offenses.“They do a very good job of taking away your inside gaps,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said during the ACC coaches’ teleconference Wednesday morning. “They get after it up front and create some penetration. I think their secondary is very good and the linebackers are very sound, especially in the box, taking away those seams and making you try to make plays on the outside.”While Wake Forest’s offense is dead last in the nation in yards per game, its defense is sixth in the ACC in passing yards allowed per game.In his weekly teleconference on Tuesday, Shafer said WFU’s defense will feature a few different looks, but they’re similar to what SU’s seen this season. Though the Demon Deacons’ offense has struggled mightily, Shafer said on Tuesday he expects Wake Forest to produce a “great” offensive game plan, having had a bye week to prepare for the Orange.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBoth teams’ offenses will be run by first-year signal-callers, but Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson pointed to the 34 upperclassmen on SU’s two-deep depth chart as he spoke highly of the Orange’s experience.“When you look at Syracuse, it’s how physical they are. They’re a very veteran offensive line,” Clawson said on the ACC coaches’ teleconference. “Overall, it’s a very experienced football team. With that, comes a very physical football team which we know they are.“That’s our biggest challenge with Syracuse, is how experienced and how physical they are.” Comments Published on October 15, 2014 at 2:25 pm Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbblast_img read more
