If Cowboys fire Jason Garrett, the coach reportedly could land with Giants for 2 reasons

first_imgToday is Sunday and the Cowboys are playing, so people naturally are wondering what the future holds for Jason Garrett. Such is life for the head coach of Dallas’ NFL team.The 53-year-old coach likely would have been discussed no matter what in Week 12, when his team was scheduled to play at New England as a 4 1/2-point road underdog in front of a national TV audience. Yet NFL Media fueled the Garrett job security fire Sunday morning with a report that connected the 10th-year Cowboys coach to the division-rival Giants. The other side of this report, however, would be a surprise. Why would the Giants, already armed with an underachieving, offensive-minded head coach trying to build a contender around quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley, be interested in a coach whose offenses in Dallas have been nothing if not inconsistent?This isn’t to say New York shouldn’t at least consider Garrett, should it move on from Shurmur and Dallas also make a move. He’s a fine coach.But “fine” hasn’t been good enough for the Cowboys. The pool of potential Giants coaching candidates, many of whom aren’t retreads from division rivals, likely would present at least one better option. WEEK 12 NFL PICKS:Against the spread | Straight-up predictions”The Giants have emerged as a real and legitimate potential landing spot for Garrett,” Ian Rapoport reported. “First of all, it is his preferred destination if he can’t stick with the Cowboys.”And second, back in 2014 the Giants were trying to decide should they fire Tom Coughlin, my understanding is they would have fired Coughlin if they could get Jason Garrett. Instead he signed an extension.”The report obviously operates under the presumption that the Giants, limping through a 2-8 season, will also fire coach Pat Shurmur at season’s end.From @NFLGameDay: Could the #Giants be a landing spot for #Cowboys coach Jason Garrett if Dallas moves on from him? A look at one situation to keep watching… 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 pic.twitter.com/GVdqWXmewd— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 24, 2019This NFL Media report is the latest in a strong flow of implications that Jerry Jones will give into pressure to fire Garrett despite the Cowboys owner/general manager’s continued verbal support of his coach. That support is warranted, considering Dallas entered Sunday with a 6-4 record, best in the NFC East.But Jones’ actions — reportedly not yet considering a contract extension for Garrett as the coach works through the final year of his deal — speak louder than his words of commitment. At this point, despite Garrett’s 83-63 record in his 10 seasons as Dallas’ coach, nobody would be surprised if Jones made a change.last_img read more

‘Amazing’ Osaka thrashes tearful Gauff at US Open as Nadal coasts

first_img“I’m happy to be in the fourth round for one more time. It was a good match,” said Nadal, who quit with injury against Juan Martin del Potro during last year’s semi-final.“I’m trying to play a little bit more aggressive and a little bit less than before.”“It’s true last year I had some tough matches. You never know what’s better or worse,” he said of his serene progress this week.Cilic, the 22nd seed and 2017 Wimbledon finalist, took out top US hope John Isner in four tight sets.“I’ve played quite a few times with Rafa. When you play these top guys you have to come up with your great tennis,” said Cilic.Sixth seed Alexander Zverev made it to the second week in New York for the first time after fighting past Aljaz Bedene 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/4), 6-3, 7-6 (7/3).Andrey Rublev, a 2017 quarter-finalist, beat Nick Kyrgios in three entertaining sets while 13th seed Gael Monfils is the highest-ranked player left in that quarter of the draw after he outlasted Denis Shapovalov in five sets.Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu, seeded 15th, brushed past two-time US Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-4 to extend her best Grand Slam run.The 19-year-old, a winner at Toronto and Indian Wells this season, improved to 30-4 for the year despite missing much of the clay and grass portion with a shoulder injury.“I think everything is just clicking with me,” said Andreescu, who had never gone beyond round two at a major prior to this tournament.“I’ve been through a lot with injuries and have just taken everything I’ve learned from the past couple of years and brought it into this year.”American qualifier Taylor Townsend continued her surprise run after reaching the last 16 for the first time at a Slam.Townsend, ranked 116th, followed up her shock win over reigning Wimbledon champion Simona Halep by beating another Romanian, Sorana Cirstea, 7-5, 6-2.Share on: WhatsApp Naomi Osaka is looking to defend her US Open title in New YorkView photos Naomi Osaka is looking to defend her US Open title in New YorkNew York, United States | AFP |  Defending champion Naomi Osaka consoled a tearful Coco Gauff after a crushing US Open victory Saturday in a showdown billed as “the future of women’s tennis” while Rafael Nadal cruised into the last 16.World number one Osaka overpowered 15-year-old Gauff 6-3, 6-0 in 65 minutes to keep her title defense on track before sharing a warm embrace with an opponent overwhelmed by the occasion in the New York spotlight.The emotional clash was followed by tearful on-court interviews, Osaka asking Gauff to join her with the microphone as they met at the net.“It was kind of instinctive because when I shook her hand, I saw that she was kind of tearing up a little. Then it reminded me how young she was,” Osaka said.“I wanted her to have her head high, not walk off the court sad. I want her to, like, be aware that she’s accomplished so much and she’s still so young.”Osaka said the match was one of her best since winning the Australian Open title.“This is the most focused I’ve been since Australia,” Osaka said, telling Gauff: “Sorry for playing you in this mentality.”The primetime third-round clash at Arthur Ashe Stadium pitted 21-year-old Japanese star Osaka against the American, who made a fourth-round Wimbledon run on her Grand Slam debut.Serena Williams, the 23-time Grand Slam champion, called it “the future of women’s tennis”, while Novak Djokovic labeled Gauff “a new superstar”.But Gauff, the youngest player through to the third round here since Anna Kournikova in 1996, struggled in her first match under the lights on Ashe.“She (Osaka) did amazing and I am going to learn a lot from this match,” Gauff said. “She’s the number one player in the world right now, so I know what I need to do to get to that level.”Osaka next faces Swiss 13th seed Belinda Bencic, who was handed a walkover when Anett Kontaveit withdrew due to illness.– Zverev, Andreescu win –Three-time champion Nadal returned from an extended rest to dispose of 170th-ranked South Korean qualifier Chung Hyeon 6-3, 6-4, 6-2, having benefited from three days off after a walkover.The Spanish second seed will meet 2014 champion Marin Cilic for a place in the quarter-finals.last_img read more

The average time for all groups was an equally impressive 4 hours.Andy Evan Memorial Best Sportsmanship Award winner Bob “Scar” Taylor (center) receives his trophy from Murray Kerr (left) and Mark Gorda (right).The turnout was somewhat less than expected, most likely in part due to the economy and the low price of oil and gas.  However, those that did take part were able to collect their anniversary golf shirt, which this year paid homage to the loss of good friend and fellow Canadian Wayne Ogonoski.  Sadly, Wayne passed away this year.  He was always a big part of the Jackalope, keeping scores at the tournament, as well as running the charity’s website and always being on hand to help the needy when funds and goods were distributed.Bennie Hansen (left) won Division 3 with 38 Stableford points. Along with the golf shirt, golfers were given quality Jackalope towels donated by Retox Game On and emblazoned with “Jackalope Open 2016 The Fun Tournament 18th Anniversary” and the distinctive Jackalope logo.  Entrants could also pick up tees, stickers and ball markers after the 10 a.m. registration, on their way to the Caesar table.After the traditional noon shotgun start, on course refreshments were handled by JD Crowley on A4 and Blue Moose on B7, plus four liquid refreshment carts that circulated throughout the course.Fred Birch (left) won Division 2 with 39 points.Once back inside the clubhouse, hungry golfers were treated to a delicious buffet provided by the Burapha staff while they waited for their scorecard to be checked and tabulated by John Emmerson and his team.Once the technical prizes were announced and presented there was one final prize to be awarded, the Jack Levy – Macallan Insurance Broker Longest Putt Challenge on hole B9.  This welcome addition to the charity event features a 20,000 baht prize, with 10,000 baht going to the winner and 10,000 baht to the Jackalope charity.  Joe Sullivan sunk the longest first putt, earning 10,000 baht, of which he gave back 5,000 baht to charity.Joe St Laurent (left) was top Rabbit on the day.After the flight winners were announced and trophies handed out, the excitement built throughout the raffle, leading up to the 50/50 draw which this year featured a pot of 180,000 baht, with 90,000 going to the winner. The lucky winner was none other than birthday boy Mark Gorda, who immediately donated his 90,000 baht winnings straight back into the charity coffers. Well done Mark!Birthday boy Mark Gorda blows out his candles as (left to right) Noodle Russell, Murray Kerr and Lumpy Russell lead the audience in the birthday song.In all, early estimates showed the amount raised during the event would be enough to ensure the Jackalope Open would once again be able to donate 400,000 baht to the Jesters Care for Kids charity drive.Special mention goes to the Global Top Group who donated 50,000 baht towards the Jackalope/Camillian Centre. Thank you.Ladies winner Noodle Russell prepares to tee off.Thanks go to Mike (the manager of the golf course) and all the staff at Burapha Golf & Resort for their excellent service provided on the day.  Thanks also to the following businesses and individuals who either donated their time and staff or helped to raise an outstanding amount for the 2016 charity fund: John Kennedy, Colin Mearns, Retox Bar, Macallan Insurance, Jack Levy, TQ, Jesters, Pattaya Sports Club, The Haven Hotel, Indian By Nature, JD Crowley, Blue Moose, Pie Guy, The Clubhouse Jomtien, Q Car Rentals, Pattaya Mail, Rick Moren, Todd Moren, Mike Peters, Stacey O’Toole, Joe and Glenna Ernst, Ryan Woods, Wayne and Anthony Stennes, Alan Vick, Danny Omlund, John Thowsen, Mike O’halloran, Pen and Neil Sandilands, Paul Erb, John Emmerson, Wade Oldenburg, Rob Kennedy, Murray and Mamo Kerr, Doug Campbell, Glenn Unflat, Glen Fiala, Pattaya Pickle, Mark Robbins and Chris Oxley, Bill Freeman, Pinky, Stewart and Randy ‘The Beer Cart Bunch’, and a host of other helpers too numerous to mention.Overall WinnerJason Manley 44ptsDivision 11st Charles Murray 40pts2nd Rob Barnes 39pts3rd Neil Skilton 38ptsDivision 21st Fred Birch 39pts2nd Darren Stanto 37pts3rd Dave Dairah 36ptsDivision 31st Bennie Hansen 38pts2nd Bernie Morris 36pts3rd Mike Lovell 35ptsLadies1st Noodle Russell2nd Pigawan VincentRabbits1st Joe St Laurent2nd Chris Balislie3rd Paal ImhofTechnical prize winnersJoe Sullivan – long putt on #9Near Pin A3: Ladies: Rong Carungay; Rabbits Julian Arawec; Div 3 Chris Harkins; Div 2 Paal Imhof; Div 1 Simon Philbrook.Near Pin A6: Ladies Oyjai Wilanan; Rabbits No Winner; Dive 3 Mike Lowell; Div 2 Barry the Bookie; Div 1 Bob Newell.Near Pin B3: Ladies Noodle Russell; Rabbits No winner; Div 3 Bernie Morris; Div 2 Lumpy Russell; Div 1 JB Russell.Near Pin B8: Ladies Noodle Russell; Rabbits No winner; Div 1 No winner; Div 2 Darren Stanton; Div 3 Andreas GreenacherLong Drive: Rabbits Rob Kennedy; Div 3 Joe Sullivan; Div 2 Peter Thomas; Dive 1 Tyson Dunlop.Andy Evan Memorial Best Sportsmanship AwardBob “Scar” Taylor.last_img read more

Cut Rate Auto Parts Iron Man 100 A Great One

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Grays Harbor RacewayFans at the Grays Harbor Raceway were treated to an awesome night of racing on Saturday June 8th.  The 3/8-mile clay oval facility had a large car count on hand in the pit area that produced some wonderful action on the track.  The headline event was the Cut Rate Auto Parts 100 for the Street Stock division which had them compete in a marathon one-hundred lap feature.  Other classes on hand included the 360 Sprints, Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modifieds, and Hornets.Walking away with the cool $650.00 check at the end of the Cut Rate Auto Parts 100 was defending track champion Jason Tole.  The Hoquiam driver showed the field the way for ninety-eight total laps.  Tole, who originally planned on taking the night off, would take the lead on lap three getting past the Sam’s Auto Repair/Desperado Express #40 Camaro of Mike Knox from Tacoma.As Tole would pace the field several cautions would occur a total including a total of eleven taking place by race’s end.  After the fourth caution happened yellow flag laps started to be counted up until lap ninety.  After the fuel stop at the midway point it started to become a race of attrition as drivers pushed their machines to the limit.Lapped traffic came into play especially with only a couple of laps to go and it looked like Brian Harding of Oakville was going to make the pass.  The Northwest Mountain Winery/Wilcox & Flegel Petroleum Supply #28 Camaro would briefly seize the top spot only to give it right back due to a caution on lap ninety-four.  Tole would retain the lead and hold off the contenders to put his Western Washington Construction/Crowell Brothers Automotive #34 Camaro into victory lane for the third straight race in Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stock division.“I planned on hanging out in the stands tonight but I kind of got guilted into racing tonight,” an extremely happy Jason Tole would say in victory lane, “I had all kinds of game plans going into this race but once the green flag came out I was just focused on getting to the front and staying there.  I got to thank Larry DeMoss from Cut Rate Auto Parts for doing putting up the money, this is awesome.”Fellow Hoquiam driver Jack Parshall would finish a respectable second place in his Jacknut Apparel/CNK Machine #9 entry followed by Brian Harding in third.  The #43 Mustang of Aberdeen native Shane Kerrigan was fourth while crossing the line in fifth was Brian Izzi from Lacey piloting the Eddie’s Automotive/Fusion Graphix #17 Camaro.  Earlier in the evening Eddie Blood of Olympia set fast time of the night at 18.913 seconds driving the #97 Malibu sponsored by Eddie’s Automotive/Fusion Graphix.Reece Goetz of Snohomish was out for a nice Saturday night drive in the 360 Sprint main event.  Starting on the pole position Goetz would put his Great Western Transport/Speedmart Inc./Elma Lanes #9R Eagle mount into the lead on the initial start.  As the feature had a long green flag run Enumclaw’s Henry Van Dam closed up the gap between him and Goetz and would start to put pressure on the leader.As the laps winded down Van Dam continued to look for a way around Goetz but Goetz held the preferred line.  In the closing laps Van Dam tried to make the pass for the lead but was unable to get around Goetz. Van Dam would have to defend second as J.J. Hickle made a bonsai move to the bottom with only a little left in the race.  The opportunity gave Goetz a chance to have some breathing room which was enough for him to go on and cruise to the win.  For Goetz it was his second win of the season making him the first driver to win more than once in the 360 Sprints.J.J. Hickle would capture second in the Meyer Electric/Kitsap Powdercoating #3 XXX followed by the Kovash Logging/Johanson Excavating #33V A.R.T. of Henry Van Dam in third.  Finishing in the fourth position was Jay Cole from Shelton in his Our Community Credit Union/Bulldog Trailers #0J XXX while fifth went to the Shark Racing Engines/LAW Motorsports #33 of Everett’s Colton Heath driving for car owners Alan Larson and Kelly Welch.Setting fast time of the night was Mill Creek native Cam Smith in the Dave Smith Motorsports/Powdercoating Inc./Nelson Texturing #17 Maxim with a time of 14.761 seconds.  Earning the victories in heat race action were Colton Heath and Jay Cole.The Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modifieds were in full force as they were competing for an enhanced purse of $750.00 to win courtesy of X-Factor Race Cars.  Hometown driver Josh Muller was the car to beat in his PBM Trucking/Eager Beaver Dirtworks/DVO Custom Guitars #3M Skyrocket.  Muller drove a distinct line the whole race primarily working the bottom groove of the track.Both Mark Carrell and Scott Miller were quick and at one point each of them had a chance to get by Muller but Muller would shut the door on them on each occasion.  In the late stages Joe German from Wishkah put his name in the hat for the win by moving into second place with only a few laps to go.    German tried his best to get his Wishkah Iron Works/Ozman Services Inc. #75X Skyrocket into the lead but Muller would hold on.  Josh Muller became the fourth different winner in five Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modified features so far in 2013.“The bottom was definitely smooth,” commented Josh Muller, “I was just focused on hitting my marks and staying out in front.  I got to thank all my sponsors and crew for helping me out.”Joe German would finish in the runner-up position while Redmond, Oregon’s Mark Carrell was third in his Mark’s Auto Body/Gray’s Automotive #27 GRT by Phillips entry.  The Blue Bear Park/Barbie’s Restaurant #26 Shaw of Shelton driver Scott Miller was fourth followed by Tom Sweatman from Cosmopolis in fifth in the Sweatman Trucking/D&D Dyno/MASCO Petroleum #11 Shaw.  Earlier in the evening Josh Muller and Scott Miller were heat race winners.The Hornet division saw Brian Norton take care of business in his Free Junk Removal #43.  The Tacoma native took the lead early in the race and ran away with it to earn his second straight victory of the season.  Norton also becomes the first Hornet driver to win more than one feature this year.“Once I got ahead it was clean sailing,” said Brian Norton, “this ties us for the same amount of wins as I got last year so it feels good.”The Kerrigan & Sons Trucking #17 of Aberdeen’s Willie Wright was second followed by the #19 of Ryan Williams in third.  The Free Junk Removal/Eddie’s Automotive #75 of Chad Norton from Tenino crossed the line fourth and completing the top five was Amanda Allery of Elma in her I-5 Auto & Truck/Loopez Inc. #37X.  Chad Norton and Amanda Allery would win their respected heat races earlier in the night.The Grays Harbor Raceway will be back in action this Saturday June 15th.  The Wild Wild West Modified Shootout will kick their speedweek series off at GHR as the local Shipwreck Beads IMCA Modified stars will defend their home track from the several travelling teams.  360 Sprints, Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks, and Hornets will all be on the card.  For more information log on towww.graysharbrorraceway.com.Race SummaryCut Rate Auto Parts Iron Man 100Saturday June 8th, 2013Grays Harbor RacewayElma, Washington360 Sprints11 EntriesFast Time: Cam Smith, 14.761Heat Race Winners: Colton Heath (1), Jay Cole (2)A-Feature: 1.

“Serious Credibility Issues”

first_imgAlthough there are reports of decline in cases of Ebola and more survivors emerging from Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs), the Liberian Business Association (LIBA) president, Dee Maxwell Saah Kemayah, has attributed the spread of the virus to the lack of trust in the Government of Liberia on the part of its citizens.Mr. Kemayah in a keynote speech delivered on his behalf by a proxy on October 25, emphasized that because of the wave of corruption in Liberia that has eroded public trust in officials of government, many Liberians denied the presence of Ebola by saying, “The Government wants to eat money, that’s the reason they say Ebola was in Liberia.”It can be recalled that when Ebola outbreak was announced in Guinea in March and subsequently reported in Liberia, many in the general public, including people of Lofa where the outbreak first occurred, denied the existence of Ebola in Liberia and attributed the news to an alleged ploy on the part of government to receive money from donors.According to Mr. Kemayah, on the basis of such perception people have about the government because of rampant corruption, Liberians refused to accept information about the reality of Ebola and take precautionary measures.These perceptions and statements, Mr. Kemayah said, “suggest that we have serious credibility issues that need to be addressed from the social, political, and economic standpoints. In January 2006, when the President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf led Government was inaugurated, the Liberian people had complete confidence and trust in the leadership ability of… her Administration.”He contended that when President Sirleaf took over in 2006 and promised that “papa will come” with a black plastic to impress the home; Liberians had complete confidence in her administration.But after a few years, especially beginning her second term, the confidence has apparently withered away because they are not seeing anything being done as promised earlier.“The increasing level of hardship and downward trend in the standard of living amongst the masses in Liberia, long before the Ebola virus outbreak, are among many reasons why the trust/confidence in the national leadership has been eroded,” Kemayah stressed.Mr. Kemayah in the loaded speech also questionably stressed, “Can the citizens trust their national leaders again when, for example, the papa na come pronouncement is far from tangible realization? Can they trust their President again? Can they trust their Senators again? Can they trust their Representatives again? Can they even trust their religious leaders again?  To answer these, one must first agree that the fabrics of these institutions have broken down from an analytical point of view.”The LIBA boss indicated that when statements by people concerning failure of the government to meet its promise are analyzed, one deduces serious problem with the national government in misapplying fund.“If one analyzes the views by the ordinary people on the streets, you could deduce that there is an issue of concern. If we say people are not eating money from this Ebola fight, why is it that giving proper account of the initial United States Five Million Dollars (US$5,000,000.00) to fight Ebola has been an issue?”He said while there are reports of decline, community dwellers need to still be conscious of its prevalence because it can break out at any time when people avoid precautionary measures.Mr. Kemayah’s statement was delivered in proxy by Rev. Garlison George, head pastor of Mount Nebo Baptist Church, of which Kemayah is a member. The occasion at which Rev. George spoke marked the launch of the Paynesville Town Hall Community Anti-Ebola awareness campaign, where a total of 100 hand-washing buckets were presented on behalf of the Kemayah family.LIBA, which has a presence in the City of Paynesville with its national headquarters located on AB Tolbert Road, also participated in the program represented by its vice president, David K. Sembeh.  In remarks, Sembeh urged the business community to strengthen its contribution to the fight against Ebola. Mr. Kemayah is currently in Uganda defending his thesis at the Catholic owned Martyrs University, where he is expected to graduate with the Masters of Arts Degree in Development Studies on November 13.Members of the community represented by Darlington Kpayili commended Mr. Kemayah and his family for the gesture and acknowledged his role played in the lives of many in the community.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
