If the call is aimed at obtaining the players’ refusal and then proceeding to reduce their emoluments, it means that we are scraping the bottom of the barrel of dignity.

We take this opportunity to give ubig hug to the many doctors, nurses and healthcare staff that these days and in the coming weeks they will need the support of all of Italy. “last_img read more

LaLiga stops the fixed venue option and will fight on Mondays


first_imgThe league, Despite what he has been counting dropwise as events developed in this crisis, he has proposed a total of up to 10 different scenarios of how to restart the 2019-20 season, with the permission of the UEFA. And in that fan all possibilities fit. From playing behind closed doors (350 million losses), to playing with the public (150), even going so far as not being able to compete more (1,000), which is the plan that you least want to air. The dates to start would be May 29, June 6 or June 28, which would force it to end in different weeks, conditioning the European competitions. With all this work done in detail, it is not strange to know that from the mind of the LaLiga Competitions department, led by Luis Gil, it has also been done a sketch of the most complex option of all: bringing together the 42 First and Second teams in the same city, or in different cities, to finish the course by playing every two or three days, Madrid being the preferred venue for its centrality, for the infrastructures and the quality of the stadiums and communications. This strategy, for the moment, has been stopped without forgetting it. There is an essential reason. Footballers are opposed. And more if the capital of Spain, the world center of the coronavirus, is used. The study, carried out by LaLiga and enriched with the strategies of other European countries that could do so, involves, among other things, a protocol for the distribution of hotels and sports cities. So far it has not been shared with the clubs, and not even outlined, and it has not been put on the table in meetings with the RFEF and AFE. However, it has been sliding by LaLiga in several telematic meetings, in which they are not recorded, to press the reactions before taking another step if necessary. “The Premier plans to play everything in London … Series A says they will meet in Rome …”. The problem is that few people welcome the idea.Unions are emphatic off the record: “They cut the wages of players and the hours for workers, with ERTE or negotiations, and now you isolate them two months in a row … Being away from home under the shield of a club is equivalent to working 24 hours a day.” Law specialists and some leaders prefer not to get wet publicly so as not to be branded as a party pooper. But, in summary, they argue that if the Government finds obstacles to isolate the asymptomatic, this is similar.On Monday. LaLiga’s other unofficial intention is to fight for a lost time slot. The court ordered the injunction in the duel for the competitions with the RFEF and, for now, it was being played on Friday and not on Monday until the magistrate enters the merits of the matter. Legally there is no loophole. With the courts stopped, the resolution will take time, and Thebes hopes that the RFEF will yield if the calendar is tightened. See the perfect excuse, playing without an audience, to engage Rubiales. “Let’s see what he says now,” is repeated in several meetings.last_img read more

Manning denies using banned substance


first_imgENGLEWOOD, Colorado (AP): Peyton Manning strongly denied a report set to air on Al Jazeera that contends the Denver Broncos quarterback received human growth hormone through his wife during his recovery from neck fusion surgeries in 2011 in Indianapolis. In a statement Saturday night, Manning said: “The allegation that I would do something like that is complete garbage and is totally made up. It never happened. Never.” He added, “I really can’t believe somebody would put something like this on the air. Whoever said this is making stuff up.” The allegations surfaced in an Al Jazeera undercover probe into doping in global sports that is set to air on Sunday and was shared in advance with The Huffington Post. The report claims Manning received HGH from an Indianapolis anti-ageing clinic in 2011 while he was still with the Colts. It said the drug, which was banned by the NFL in the 2011 collective-bargaining agreement, was delivered to his wife, Ashley, so that the quarterback’s name was never attached to the shipments. Liam Collins, a British hurdler, went undercover and spoke with Charlie Sly, an Austin, Texas-based pharmacist who worked at the Guyer Institute, the Indiana-based anti-ageing clinic in 2011. Sly allegedly names Manning and other high-profile athletes as having received HGH from the clinic. However, Sly backtracks in a subsequent statement to Al Jazeera, saying Collins secretly recorded his conversations without his knowledge or consent. “The statements on any recordings or communications that Al Jazeera plans to air are absolutely false and incorrect,” Sly said. “To be clear, I am recanting any such statements and there is no truth to any statement of mine that Al Jazeera plans to air. Under no circumstances should any of those recordings, statements or communications be aired.” The NFL and players’ union added human growth hormone testing to the collective-bargaining agreement signed in 2011, but the side didn’t agree to testing terms until 2014. Nobody has tested positive, which would trigger a four-game suspension. Manning, who joined the Broncos in 2012, has been sidelined since November 15 by a left-foot injury. Brock Osweiler makes his sixth consecutive start in Manning’s place tonight when the Broncos (10-4) host the Bengals (11-3).last_img read more
