Nike to end United kit deal

first_img A Nike statement released to Press Association Sport on Tuesday confirmed the American sportswear giant had decided against renewing the 13-year kit deal, which was signed in 2002. It is understood that Nike was unwilling to match a higher bid from another kit manufacturer. Reports have suggested adidas is now in pole position to clinch a deal which could see the club earn £60million a year from 2015. Nike’s original deal was worth £303million, with extra income from a profit share agreement from merchandise sold worldwide. The Nike statement read: ”Manchester United is a great club with passionate fans. ”We are proud to have partnered with them for the last 12 years and will continue to sponsor the club until the end of the 2014/15 season. ”Any partnership with a club or federation has to be mutually beneficial and the terms that were on offer for a renewed contract did not represent good value for Nike’s shareholders. ”We look forward to a successful final season with the club.” On Monday, United unveiled their new home kit for the 2014-15 season – which will be the last designed by Nike and the first to bear the logo of new sponsor Chevrolet. United announced they would be entering a seven-year agreement – worth a reported £53million per season – with the US car giant from this summer back in 2012. Nike will not renew its kit deal with Manchester United at the end of next season.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Students play with dogs at weekly Pause for Paws

first_imgProfessor Beauregard Tirebiter, known as Professor Beau, is USC’s full-time certified facility dog and often walks around campus to spend time with students and help reduce stress. Photo by John Cha | Daily TrojanWith arms outstretched, Samantha Moynihan lies down on a blanket at Alumni Park, reaching out to pet the two therapy dogs, Charlie and Maya, stationed on her left and right. Moynihan, a freshman majoring in cinematic arts, has two greyhounds at home in Seattle. While she misses her own dogs, she said she enjoys spending time with therapy dogs like Charlie and Maya at the USC’s weekly “Pause for Paws” event. “I like that you can pet animals, and because they’re therapy dogs, a lot of times they’re the personality of the dog that really, really loves everyone,” Moynihan said. Pause for Paws was started a few years ago, said Diane Medsker, a health promotion specialist at the Office for Wellness and Health Promotion, which helps organize the event. At first, the dogs were brought on campus during finals week through a partnership with nonprofit organization Love on 4 Paws.“We would do that once or twice a semester, and the students loved it so much, so then we thought, ‘OK, let’s do this more often,’ because the students were like, ‘We want them to come again,’” Medsker said. “So we started to bring them in weekly … now it’s one of the regular initiatives we [OWHP] are responsible for.”Now, Pause for Paws is held every Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., in rotating locations across campus. OWHP works with USC Transportation, which provides free parking for Love on 4 Paws volunteers and setup assistance.“It’s hugely popular and successful,” Medsker said. “We’ve started to track the number of students who attend, and even if they’re just there for five or 10 minutes, there’s something about being with a dog that lifts so many people’s spirits and just puts them in a better mood.”Marissa Hernandez, a first-year graduate student studying social work, spent part of her Thursday afternoon hanging out with the therapy dogs. Hernandez, who has a Jack Russell Terrier at home, agreed with Medsker’s thoughts on the event. “I think it’s really relaxing,” Hernandez said. “It’s kind of distracting, both in a good way and in a bad way. I’m supposed to be writing a paper right now, but it’s relaxing to the point that you’re just really happy, and then your stress levels are really low.”Moynihan also said the event gave her time to slow down amidst college life. Although she has class during most of Pause for Paws, she tries put aside the last 30 minutes she can attend in her schedule every week. “I think it’s a really good initiative, especially with just the level of stress, and how the … American education system is evolving to put pressures on students,” Moynihan said.Pause for Paws’ popularity also led to the introduction of Professor Beauregard Tirebiter, USC’s full-time certified faculty dog. Medsker said that after hearing a positive reception from students about Pause for Paws, the OWHP staff began to think about the benefits and look into the research of having a dog around full-time. OWHP also hosts events where students can spend time with Beau, including residence hall trips, classroom visits and even an opportunity to schedule office hours. “Students can request him,” Medsker said. “We have an online request form. It’s very busy, yes, we have many requests for a visit from Beau.”Currently, Pause for Paws and Professor Beau are OWHP’s only programs that involve animals. While Medsker said there are no plans currently to expand, the office would love to add to Beau’s pack. Moynihan had one suggestion for the office’s next expansion. “They had a therapy cat that was here last week, and I think they should start doing more of that, because I think that’s an amazing [thing],” Moynihan said.last_img read more

Wisconsin aiming to beat the heat and ASU

first_imgSenior wideout Jared Abbrederis has exploited opponents all season to the tune of three touchdowns and 184 yards. photo: Jen SmallThe last week has been pretty hot in Madison, but for the Wisconsin football team things are about to get much hotter.No. 20 UW (2-0) heads to Arizona this weekend for a battle with Arizona State (1-0) Saturday night, where temperatures are projected to be around 95 degrees when the game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. in Tempe.As a result, head coach Gary Andersen elected to take the team west a day early — flying to Arizona on Thursday instead of Friday — so they have more time to acclimate to the desert-like surroundings.“That is a little bit of the thought process to get there on Thursday afternoon and practice because we will practice there Thursday afternoon,” Andersen said at his Monday press conference. “We don’t play with the sun shining, but we do play in the heat. So we’ll get used to that a little bit.“Regardless of how all that boils down, that doesn’t matter that we’re flying across the country. It doesn’t matter that we’re going two time zones. It doesn’t matter that it might be really hot. That’s part of traveling.”Echoing the remarks of their coach, team members say the heat doesn’t seem to have gotten into their heads either.“It’s all mental if you ask me,” redshirt sophomore running back Melvin Gordon said. “It’s just one part of the game, so we have to go in there knowing that the weather won’t beat you and we’ll be alright.”Saturday’s game will also mark the first time this season that Wisconsin will enter the game as the underdog, with many choosing Arizona State as 5.5-point favorites to win.For many of the new players on the roster, 75,000 fans screaming for a team other than Wisconsin — combined with the most talented team they have faced — will likely be an eye-opening experience.“We just told [the new guys] road games get pretty loud,” Gordon said. “You’ve got to be really focused. That’s the big thing. Other than that you just play football — that’s it — and that doesn’t change when you’re on the road.”On the field, the first couple of weeks for both teams have been eerily similar.Neither team has allowed a single point so far this season. Wisconsin shut out its first two opponents each of the last two weeks, while ASU shut out FCS opponent Sacramento State 55-0 last Thursday in its season opener.A big factor in ASU’s success against Sacramento State rests on the shoulders of junior quarterback Taylor Kelly. Kelly finished the game with video game-like numbers, including throwing for 300 yards and five touchdowns on 23-for-31 passing.A more unfortunate similarity, however, can be seen in both teams’ struggle with the kicking game early on this fall.In response to a 0-for-1 field goal attempt and 6-for-7 PAT showing Sept. 7, Andersen decided to reinstate a competition for the job heading into Saturday’s game.“It hasn’t gone the way we want it to be,” Andersen said. “So I’m going to look at myself and try to fix it and put them in positions to be successful and try to create a game-like environment because it’s not practice that’s the issue.”While Wisconsin went back to the drawing board this week, creating a competition between redshirt junior Kyle French and sophomore Jack Russell, ASU will have its own uncertainties should the offense be stalled in field goal territory.Last week against Sacramento State, freshman kicker Zane Gonzalez made only two of four field goals, which comes a year after a kicking platoon finished the season a combined 15-for-24 in 2012.Many Badger fans will remember that in Wisconsin’s last matchup with Arizona State, special teams played a critical role in UW’s slim 20-19 victory at Camp Randall.After Arizona State scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter to bring the game within one, former ASU kicker Thomas Weber had the extra-point kick blocked, gifting UW a victory in front of its home fans.On offense for the Badgers, things don’t look any easier.In ASU’s lone game in 2013, they have given up an average of 1.6 yards per rush and only 5 yards per pass.For senior wide receiver Jared Abbrederis and company, numbers can only tell you so much. Instead Abbrederis said they just want to get out there and finally get their chance to prove themselves.“If we go out there and just be successful and play as a team, I think we will do well,” Abbrederis said.“We’re excited to go out there and just play football. They are going to be a good team.”last_img read more

Aston Villa beat West Brom to each Championship play-off final

first_imgAston Villa beat West Bromwich Albion in a penalty shootout to reach the Championship play-off final for the second successive season.Tammy Abraham’s winning spot-kick, after keeper Jed Steer had saved Albion’s first two penalties, settled the shootout 4-3 in Villa’s favour after a gripping two hours of tension-packed derby drama.Trailing 2-1 from Saturday’s first leg, Albion levelled the tie when Craig Dawson flicked home a near-post header from a long throw.But, just as much as Dwight Gayle’s red card proved crucial at Villa Park, so did the 80th-minute sending-off of Albion captain Chris Brunt as they finished with 10 men for the second time in four days.They held on for penalties and, although Albert Adomah’s miss in the shootout briefly gave them hope after Steer had saved from Mason Holgate and Ahmed Hegazi, Abraham kept his nerve to book a play-off final meeting with either Leeds or Derby at Wembley on 27 May.They meet in the second leg of their semi-final at Elland Road on Wednesday, with Leeds 1-0 up from the first leg.

Jimmy Rollins’ clutch hit in 7th lifts Dodgers to 10-7 victory over Phillies

first_imgJimmy Rollins played the first 15 years of his career with the Philadelphia Phillies before being traded to the Dodgers in the off-season.In his first crack at his former team Monday, Rollins stroked a tie-breaking, two-run single in the bottom of the seventh inning off relief pitcher Jeanmar Gomez to lift the Dodgers to a 10-7 victory over the Phillies before 45,180 at Dodger Stadium.Gomez (0-2) got the loss.The Dodgers (47-37) moved back to 10 games over .500. More importantly, the first-place Dodgers built their lead over the Giants in the NL West to five games. • PHOTOS: Dodgers beat Phillies in epic-length gamePhiladelphia, which came in having lost nine of 11, has the worst record in baseball at 28-57.Rollins’ hit made a winner out of J.P. Howell (4-1), who got the final out of the top of the seventh. Kenley Jansen picked up his 14th save by pitching the ninth. The game took 4 hours, 13 minutes.The deciding hit was like a script right out of Hollywood.“Yeah, I was standing next to Mac (hitting instructor Mark McGwire) when he came up and I’m like, ‘It’s only fitting that Jimmy’s the guy up right now,’ ” Mattingly said. “And it didn’t take him long to deliver, so it was really nice to see.” Rollins was funny afterward. He talked about Gomez leaving a sinker out over the plate and going with the pitch to left field. He got laughs when asked if there was something extra going on because it was against his former team.“No, no,” he said. “When you get a hit like that, it feels good no matter who you’re playing against,” he said. If you don’t, it’s like, ‘Damn it.’ And I definitely don’t want to have a ‘Damn it’ moment against my former team.”It was a bullpen game for the Dodgers pitching staff because Carlos Frias, who would have started, is on the 15-day disabled list. Manager Don Mattingly could have started just-recalled southpaw Eric Surkamp, who started six of seven games in which he appeared at Triple-A Oklahoma City. But Mattingly went with Garcia, who gave up two runs on four hits in two innings.The Dodgers used seven pitchers.“We just thought this was going to give us the most options for the game and give us the best chance to win,” Mattingly said before the first pitch.The Dodgers got two runs in the first inning off Phillies starting pitcher Sean O’Sullivan, on a sacrifice fly by Justin Turner and Adrian Gonzalez’s 16th home run of the season. Gonzalez, Yasmani Grandal, Joc Pederson and Zack Greinke were named to the National League All-Star team earlier Monday.The Phillies tied the game on a two-run home run by Freddy Galvis off Garcia in the top of the second, with the Dodgers going back ahead 3-2 on back-to-back doubles by Yasiel Puig and Andre Ethier in the bottom of the second.But a three-run home run by Ryan Howard off Surkamp in the third put the Phillies up 5-3, and they made it 6-3 on a home run by Odubel Herrera in the fourth.Surkamp ended up pitching 3 1/3 innings and giving up four earned runs on four hits.The Dodgers caught the Phillies on Grandal’s 13th home run of the season — with two on — in the bottom of the fifth, and went ahead 7-6 in the next inning on an RBI single by Howie Kendrick, who had four hits.As big as Rollins’ hit was, without Grandal’s big smash, the Dodgers would not have been tied at the time Rollins came through.“I came up the at-bat before and had really good contact with a man on first and second and I wasn’t able to do anything,” said Grandal, who lined out to left with runners on first and second in the third. “So to be in that situation again and come through is big.”Philadelphia tied the game on a sacrifice fly by Galvis off Pedro Baez — the fourth Dodgers pitcher — in the top of the seventh.That set the scene for Rollins’ heroics. After he singled home two runs, he scored on an RBI double by Pederson for a 10-7 lead. Rollins batted ninth in the order with the pitchers spot being eighth.“It’s really another baseball game,” Rollins said before the game. “It helps probably having first the chance to face these guys here in Los Angeles as opposed to going back to Philadelphia.”Surkamp said that when he was told Saturday he was going coming to The Show, he would likely be starting.“The manager down there (Damon Berryhill) might have told me that I was going to start originally, but then yesterday they called me and told me that things were kind of up in the air; they weren’t sure which way they were going to go yet,” Surkamp said before first pitch. “I found out last night that I wasn’t going to be starting.”Surkamp, 27, previously pitched in the big leagues in 2011 and 2013 with the Giants and in 2014 with the White Sox.The Dodgers were in the situation for a bullpen game because Carlos Frias was recently placed on the 15-day disabled list. Frias is 5-5 with an ERA of 4.39, so even when healthy he hasn’t been lights out. With the trading deadline coming up July 31, the Dodgers are in the market for another starting pitcher.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
