"In recent weeks, Washaun have done things that we expect to do what we expect all players to do," Richt said in a statement Saturday. "He did things the Georgia way."

Ealey was suspended on February 8, fueling speculation that he was about to move. Richt does not give cause for particular punishment, but left the door open for a return to Ealey. ESPN.com reported that does not appear in a specification.

"We have certain expectations and rules that apply to all student-athletes," Richt said at the time. "We expect them to do things the right way, the way in Georgia. Washaun If you do things, like Georgia, will be back in good standing."
It was not the first time in kennels Ealey was the coach. The second year was suspended for the opening of the 2010 season after his arrest for driving with a suspended license and leaving the scene of an accident.

Quenneville Returns Blackhawks 3-0 Predators


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)-Joel Quenneville spoke softly with his hoarse voice to his return behind the bench of the Chicago Blackhawks. The coach feels good, is just the price of losing a few games and come back for a game in a building Soldout.

"You can say I was far away. I can not talk now," Quenneville said.

Tomas Kopecky  and Marian Hossa  scored, and goaltender Corey Crawford stopped 31 shots and the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Nashville Predators 3-0 on Thursday night for their first game the coach's back. Quenneville lost four games due to a bleeding ulcer.
Not that the Blackhawks missed much of a step without him. They won three without him, and now the defending champions have won three straight and four of five.

"It is entirely up to us what we do with it," Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith  said. "Tonight I thought was a great team effort. That's what it will take. "

No wonder, Quenneville said it was exciting to be back as a big game.
"I felt good the whole match. I saw behind me will be the second for the third voice, suddenly it seems that the first day of training camp or the first game of the regular season resumes. It 'was used for some time. You take up a few decibels. We realized back, "he said.

I only want the Predators offense back. They outshot Chicago 31-25, but were excluded from the second straight defeat and lost three straight and four of five.

"We had some chances but we could not find them," coach Barry Trotz said Nashville. "There were some loose pucks each period, we could not get a handle on."
Crawford scored his third shutout of the season. Patrick Sharp had an empty-netter with 31 seconds left and added an assist. The Blackhawks won their season series with the team that ousted in the first round of the playoffs last April, 3-1-2.

With this game, Nashville and Chicago are among the six teams with 70 points together and fighting for position in the Western Conference.

"I do not think we ever in a place where we should feel good," Quenneville said. "You look at the posts, and next opponent is right in the wheelhouse. Six teams on 70 points is pretty amazing."

Nashville is not content with having lost his lead on the pack.

"No more excuses," said the captain of Nashville Shea Weber. "There is no reason why we make mistakes. If we do, we must do for themselves and for their increase."
Predators opened urgently after giving four goals in the third period of a 4-0 loss to Columbus on Tuesday night. They took the first five shots of the match and spent much of the first half against Crawford.

Kopecky came as an extra attacker during a delayed penalty, and Sharp to him as Kopecky reached the right circle where he snapped a shot past goalie Pekka Rinne at 17:12 for a 1-0 lead and his 11th goal this season.

Chicago was nearly a second goal 1:25 into the second when Ryan Johnson crashed on the slopes with the potential to slide the disc over the goal line, but a careful examination of each goal. The track was another great save, blocking a shot in front of Keith's mid-season.
Predators stop with Crawford, Hossa helped seal the victory early in the third with 14 this season. He lifted a pass, gathered the puck and scored on a breakaway with a wrist under the right arm of Rinne at 2:35.

"Clearly, the breakaway by Hossa was hard to swallow," said Trotz.

Predators thought they had scored 5:59 remaining, but officials immediately sign off the door. David Legwand touched Crawford, knocking him off balance before Colin Wilson to tap the puck in Crawford was also a nice pad save Wilson about 1:20 remaining.

Getting A Lot Of NFL First Block

As the sun set on another Super Bowl entertainment and a special performance by the Green Bay Packers led by Aaron Rodgers, the ex-UC Berkeley first quarter to win the prestigious trophy from the NFL, we fear dark days of the league.

Collective labor agreement expires March 4. Unless the NFL Players Association and owners of the team to agree at that time, the block player appears imminent.

Given the unprecedented popularity of the NFL, did not get a fair contract would be a farce. But, unfortunately, that we expect.

It became a game of chicken between the multimillionaires and billionaires right pampered with little consideration to the people who pay the price - the fans.
Not reaching an agreement would be a colossal mistake on the part of the players and the owners.

In addition to public relations disasters, such as a lock-out would create a logistical nightmare for individual research teams looking to improve mobility and self-coaching changes when there is no certainty of the season. It could also be affected by potential new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara and beat the Oakland Raiders?

This led us to this situation is typical of collective bargaining - differing opinions on what should be and how things should work. One such issue, of course, is how to allocate $ 9 billion in revenue in the league. Yes, it's dollars with a B.

The last collective agreement in 2006 has been quite generous to the players receive 60 percent of sales, whatever the economic climate. The owners seem to realize they made a bad deal then, and is anxious not to make the same mistake again.

Obviously, the players want to continue with the agreement, and the owners want a bigger slice of the cake again.

Another sticking point is the proposal of an owner to extend the regular season 16-18 games and reduce the preseason contest. The players say they need time to prepare physically and mentally for a tough season and regular addition of two other significant games for the season is likely to add further injury, reduced playing career and increase the chances of permanent physical damage.

The final answer here is obvious, both sides must compromise. But the devil may be in the details.

More people saw on Super Bowl Sunday than any show in television history. Owners and players must understand that such success in the NFL is a tribute to the loyalty of the fan. But it seems to get lost in the shuffle. Neither party has to turn back the fans who have invested heavily in this league.

If you have any questions about this, you should keep an eye on Washington to see how things work when discussing the rich and super rich without regard for those who pay the bills.

Canada To Resolve Visa Problems

Canada has received a timely boost before the news of the World Cup, that a visa has been granted to three players born in Pakistan, who were still waiting for Indian authorities clear their applications.

The team returned to Dubai for a training camp on January 28 with vice-captain Rizwan Cheema, Khurram Chohan and Hamza Tariq unclear whether they would be allowed to go to India. With all clear now Canada takes a full team for the tournament and they have two warm-up matches - against Bangladesh and England - before their opening match against Sri Lanka on February 20.
Cricket Canada's president, Ranjit Saini, had earlier said Canada's preparation had been damaged when the three players were prevented from attending a training tour to India last year. "We couldn't take these players to India and as a result our training plans have suffered," Saini told the Pakistan's Daily Mail earlier this month. "[It was] a source of distraction."
Canada's first match in India is against Zimbabwe on February 28.

Phoenix Open Affected By Cold Conditions

Frozen peat swept the Pro-Am round of the Phoenix Open and the temperature would have very long delay before playing on Thursday and Friday.

The temperature rose to 20 F (-2 C) early in the morning when the players began arriving at the TPC Scottsdale and only 35 F (1.5 C) about 11 hours when the pro-am was canceled.

“The greens are still frozen,” said Slugger White, the PGA Tour’s vice president of rules. “The approaches are frozen. And it just would do a tremendous amount of damage if we walked on it, just tracking everything up with the greens being frozen.”

With nighttime temperatures in the 20's, the gel could cause long delays before play can begin on Thursday and Friday.

“Anything could happen with the weather, but it doesn’t look good tomorrow morning,” White said. “It’s supposed to be colder. And it might be even colder on Friday. So, we’ll just see.”
