Steel Sensations….3-2 And Going Nowhere

first_imgBen Roethlisberger (7) and head coach Mike Tomlin chat on the sideline prior to an NFL football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville, Fla., Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014.(AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack)Sure, the Steelers beat Jacksonville on Sunday afternoon and improved to 3-2 on the season but were any of you impressed? Do any of you trust that this team has what it takes to win enough games to be in the playoff mix?  I sure don’t.Something has to change.I’ve seen nothing out of these guys thus far. Sure, they had a great first half against the Browns and a great second half vs. the Panthers but that’s about it.There are several guys I trust individually, Big Ben, Leveon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Troy Polamalu and Lawrence Timmons for example. However, I do not trust the team collectively.  They don’t seem to have the right chemistry. They don’t make the right plays, they look lost, confused and overwhelmed. They could very easily be 1-4 right now.Something has to change.The play calling hasn’t been effective enough. Why isn’t LeVeon Bell carrying the ball more than 15 times, as he did in Jacksonville? He needs it at least 20 times a game, if not more. Why isn’t that happening? The deep ball needs to be thrown more often to the explosive Antonio Brown; why isn’t that called often enough?  Heath Miller should be more of a focal point on offense, where are the plays specific to him?The team has a top 10 quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end, as mentioned above yet they struggle to move the chains.Something has to change.The defense isn’t good, period. Yes, they came up with a couple of turnovers and scored vs. Jacksonville but they were playing Jacksonville so very little credit will be given from me for doing what every other team in the league does. When it was 10-9 did you ever trust that the defense was going to get it done? I didn’t. Yes, they did get it done as it turns out but I still don’t trust them.Something has to change.The penalties were still plentiful, another seven for 50 yards. Sure, that’s an improvement, but I’d ask you if you think that’s good? It’s not, it’s simply not. It’s unacceptable and it will ruin any goals this team has if they don’t get things in order.With 11 games to go, there is plenty of time to turn things around but do you trust the coaching staff? At this juncture, I certainly don’t. They’ve proven they don’t make in game adjustments and it’s hard to say they even make in week adjustments.  There doesn’t appear to be any upside to what these guys can bring.They play the Browns this week, on the road, a game we’d all normally chalk up as a ‘W’. Can you really say that now?Something has to change….Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

#JaVotes2016: Warmington calls soldier an ‘A**hol*’

first_img The incident occurred after the soldier tried to inform the candidate that he had to go inside the polling station alone, which angered him. Warmington’s angry tirade was met with cheers from a number of persons wearing shirts with his photo and name attached. The JLP candidate had gone to the venue to express his discontent about clerks working at polling divisions 20 and 40 inside the venue. He said they were slowing down the process and that he had already complained to Director of Elections Orrette Fisher.  “It means that when the process concludes, they must be allowed to vote,” Warmington said. Meanwhile, persons commended a policeman, who helped to tone down the irate candidate. Warmington was later seen telling persons to obey the police and that he only respected the police command. Meanwhile, both the JLP and the People’s National Party (PNP) contenders were seen throughout the constituency with scores of persons in their respective party colours parading in vehicles. Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate for South West St Catherine Clifford Everald Warmington caused quite a stir, after he called a member of the Jamaica Defence Force an a**hol*. The incident occurred about 11:40 am at the entrance of the Old Harbour Primary School, St Catherine. It was an angry Warmington who shouted, “You have no authority to order me! Let the police address me! You are an a**hol*! Don’t say nothing!”last_img read more

Grange outlines plans to upgrade facilities

first_imgMinister of Sports Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange said upgrading work on three of the island’s sporting facilities is set to begin later this year. Grange, who did not disclose the names of the stadiums which are set to benefit from the upgrading exercise, said that the refurbishing of these venues forms part of her legacy programmes, which she launched in 2011 during her administration’s previous term in office. “We are looking at three facilities across the island where we will be assisting with upgrading and in some instances, existing facility will be upgraded to a mini stadium status and in one instance, we may be building something from the ground up,” informed Grange. “This is a vision that I have always had, and the last time I was minister, that was part of my Jamaica50 Legacy Programme,” Grange added. Grange noted that the change of government at the time resulted in a number of the legacy projects not being taken forward by the previous administration. “I am back as minister; I (will) ensure that this infrastructure development programme which (will create) three mini-stadiums across the island will be done, and there are a number of other initiatives that we will be announcing as legacy programmes coming off the 55th anniversary of Independence,” shared Grange. The minister noted that full details of the programme would be announced during this year’s media launch of the Jamaica 55 celebrations in March.last_img read more

Questions linger over Stima duo promotion

first_imgArticle 20 of the FIFA Statutes states; “Every member association shall ensure that its affiliated clubs can take all decisions on any matters regarding membership independently of any external body. This obligation applies regardless of an affiliated club’s corporate structure.”“In any case, the member association shall ensure that neither a natural nor a legal person (including holding companies and subsidiaries) exercises control in any manner whatsoever (in particular through a majority shareholding, a majority of voting rights, a majority of seats on the board of directors or any other form of economic dependence or control, etc.) over more than one club whenever the integrity of any match or competition could be jeopardized.”With this statute, it would be impossible to have the two teams playing in the same league if at all it is proved that both share a similar shareholding or economic dependence on one entity.Nairobi Stima’s Joseph Shikokoti in action against an FC Talanta player during a previous National Super League match. PHOTO/FKF“It was the same case sometimes back when Mathare United and Mathare Youth played in the KPL. They had to prove beyond doubt that the two were separate entities. According to that FIFA Statute, Western, Nairobi and Coast Stima should not even be playing in the NSL together. Probably if there is a proof that the two are not sharing the same sponsorship structure then that’s okay,” KPL CEO Jack Oguda told Capital Sport.Meanwhile, Football Kenya federation who run the second tier NSL say they have referred the matter to the legal department which should be giving them a response soon.“We are aware of the issue and we have the legal team handling that. They should be getting back to us on the position. I cannot pre-empt on anything at this point until further advised by the legal team,” FKF Head of Communications Barry Otieno noted.Currently, Western Stima who were relegated from the top tier at the close of last season sit at the apex of the standings with 70 points, seven ahead of second placed KCB who have played a match less. Nairobi Stima are third with 62.KCB midfielder Samuel Mwangi controls the ball under pressure from his St Joseph Youth marker during a past FKF National Super League match.

We need to take a match at a time and give our all and I am certain we will earn that promotion slot,” Ayany, a former Ulinzi Stars midfielder said.Meanwhile, Nairobi Stima slipped to third after being held to a barren draw away to Bidco United.

Ipswich 1-1 Birmingham: Brett Pitman penalty earns a point for the Tractor Boys

first_img Brett Pitman 1 A Brett Pitman penalty was enough to earn a draw for Ipswich Town at home to Birmingham in the Championship on Friday night.David Cotterill opened the scoring midway through the first half after both sides traded early chances, but his goal was cancelled out by Pitman’s spot-kick.The result leaves Mick McCarthy’s men in the play-off places while Birmingham move up to sixth ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.Cotterill had the best few chances in the opening 15 minutes taking on both a right footed and left footed drive from around the box but to no result.Birmingham broke the deadlock after 21 minutes when a lightening break ended up at the feet of Cotterill who, third time lucky, hammered the ball into the roof of the net for his second goal of the season.It was all level 10 minutes later when Jonathan Spector brought down Ainsley Maitland-Niles and a penalty was awarded to Ipswich.Pitman stepped up and buried it in the bottom right-hand corner to bring the Tractor Boys back into the match.Into the second half and Freddie Sears came inches away from taking the lead for the hosts but his shot was hacked off the line by Paul Caddis after some good initial footwork from Pitman.Luke Chambers had another chance to take the lead for Ipswich but the skipper could not adjust his feet in time and screwed his effort well wide of the goal.With less than 20 minutes left on the clock Ipswich continued to press for the winner, this time Maitland-Niles lashing over the bar from only eight yards out.While both teams pushed hard for the elusive goal, neither could manage it after some resolute defending and the points were, perhaps fairly, shared.last_img read more

Rooney will KEEP playing for England, even if he doesn’t continue as captain

first_img Will Wayne Rooney continue as England captain under Sam Allardyce? 1 Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney insists he will continue playing for England for two more years, even if he doesn’t continue as captain.New England boss Sam Allardyce has remained tight-lipped over the 30-year-old striker’s future as Three Lions skipper.The former Sunderland chief has said he will reveal his decision when the squad meet up for their World Cup qualifier against Slovakia in September.However, Rooney has no intention of considering his international future for another two years, even if Allardyce hands the armband to someone else.He told the Daily Mail: “I’ll carry on until the World Cup in 2018 and then I might have a decision to make. “But for the next two years, captain or not captain, I’ll turn up and be available to play if I am wanted.”Rooney continued: “I’ve spoken to him. Not at length about how we’re going to play or my role, but he seems very excited about the job and he’ll have his own way of doing it.“I don’t think it would be fair to expect him to make a decision on the captaincy now.“So I’ll wait and see what he thinks. He’ll want to see the group, work with us all and then make his decision.”last_img read more
