Unwritten rule

I don’t know why I got thrown out.”Referee Tony Brothers explained why postgame, saying he saw Thompson go into Livingston with his elbow high on that shot. In Brothers’ eyes, that merited the assessment of a flagrant-2 foul and ejection.“It’s not affecting the outcome of the game,” Miami center Kelly Olynyk said on Friday from India, where he’s appearing at a Basketball Without Borders event. “It doesn’t really matter to me. It doesn’t really make a difference to me. It doesn’t make a difference in the outcome of the game, win and loss record. If a guy wants two more points we’ll give it to him and move on.”The Warriors take those shots all the time. It’s basically a team policy. Since the start of the 2016-17 season when facing such a situation—time running out, shot clock still on, game outcome clearly decided—Golden State has been charged with a field-goal attempt 38 times, while committing only five shot-clock violations.Warriors coach Steve Kerr has a simple rule: Don’t partake in any habit that leads to a turnover.His guys are listening.“That’s our thing,” Golden State forward Kevin Durant said. “It’s no disrespect to any other team. It’s just what we do. We don’t want to take the turnover. We take the shot.”For his part, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue shrugged off the Livingston shot on Friday.“Got to play to the buzzer,” Lue said. “They took a shot and that’s what they do. It doesn’t determine the game. The game was over. It’s no big deal to me. So, whatever.”The debate is also alive hereabouts, especially with the quotient system—a mathematical formula used to break ties in the standings—being able to decide whether a team progresses to the playoffs or not. “I know a team that got a poor quotient was eliminated because it did not get a shot at a knockout game,” Norman Black, the Meralco coach, said in defense of guard Chris Newsome, who was on the receiving end of Yeng Guiao’s ire when he made a shot in the Bolts’ 106-90 victory over NLEX recently in the Commissioner’s Cup.“Me as a coach, I’m not naive. I know that normally, if the game is over, the game is over. You don’t want to put it in the coach’s face or the other team’s face, but until the PBA changes the rules or something else, and until they continue this rule which is the quotient rule, then we’ll follow the rules,” said Black after that game.Guiao saw it differently.“It’s still disrespect. It was totally unnecessary at that point,” he said.“I know that there’s a quotient rule, but it’s more than enough quotient for me,” he said. “At the same time, I did not expect it from Newsome. He’s kind of a good guy who’s going to probably understand a situation like that.”Newsome’s take: “I was just following orders.”PBA coaches understand how the rule is difficult to follow here, considering the fate of their team may hinge on the quotient system.“It depends on the format,” Phoenix coach Louie Alas said. “If the quotient comes into play, every point counts.”“If quotient is needed, every point is important so taking a shot even if the margin is already big is not disrespectful for me,” said GlobalPort coach Pido Jarencio.But the NBA hardly needs such tiebreak measures. So it will always be a sticky point, especially for a team like the Warriors, who want to make playing the right way second nature to them. “I don’t think we would get on our feelings if somebody came down and finished out a possession and got a shot up,” Steph Curry said. “I mean, obviously, if they’re doing some taunting or doing some crazy stuff, that’s a little different. But if you’re just playing the game of basketball and finishing out a possession instead of taking a turnover, I don’t see any problem with that at all. Guys are out there to finish a game and play the right way.”And so the debate continues. —WITH A REPORT FROM MUSONG R.

Just play it to the end,” Warriors guard Stephen Curry said.It’s a thorny issue with no solution.Philadelphia and Miami jawed over late-game shot attempts in their playoff series this season. The 76ers and Cavs exchanged words over a Dario Saric dunk late in a blowout in March. The Warriors’ JaVale McGee got shoved by Washington’s Brandon Jennings while taking a late 3 in a rout last season. Toronto once sent about half its team to speak to Lance Stephenson after a late open layup in an Indiana win.And now the rules—arbitrary as they may be—are up for debate in the NBA Finals after the Cavaliers took offense to the Warriors playing offense.ADVERTISEMENT Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations MOST READ Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film Tristan Thompson (top) found Shaun Livingston’s last shot unnecessary and committed a foul that drew a flagrant-2 call and an ejection—and an on-court melee. —APIt always seems to get Tim Cone’s goat. Yeng Guiao’s too. When the game is decided, and the opponent has the ball in his hands, he is supposed to dribble off the possession—quotient or shot clock be damned.It is supposedly an unwritten rule in basketball, one that first became media fodder in 2008, when Kelly Williams, then playing for Sta. Lucia, soared for a stylish dunk in the final play of an 86-77 victory by the Realtors in Game 2 of their Philippine Cup semifinals against Alaska.ADVERTISEMENT Lacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go?

Bilingual ballots now available

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventThe U.S. Department of Justice requires it when 5 percent or more of registered voters in 18 targeted precincts are of Hispanic descent, she said. Los Angeles County’s criteria is stricter: 3 percent or more. Spanish-language assistance will be offered Election Day at 18 precincts chosen through 2000 census figures. Voters go to the polls Tuesday to choose three City Council members from among 11 candidates in a campaign whose issues range from jammed traffic to redeveloping downtown Newhall to growth within and outside city limits. The winners will be the trio who snag the most votes. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday. In the race, eight challengers are hoping to unseat Mayor Laurene Weste, Mayor Pro Tem Marsha McLean and Councilman Frank Ferry, who are seeking new four-year terms. SANTA CLARITA – For the first time in a Santa Clarita municipal election, the sample ballots mailed out to voters were printed in both English and Spanish. The inclusion of Spanish on the sample ballots for Tuesday’s City Council election prompted some complaints to City Hall. “This was the first time we had the bilingual sample ballot in English and Spanish to comply with the federal law,” said City Clerk Sharon Dawson. “Some voters are not happy getting materials in Spanish.” Spanish was included because this election is the first first time Santa Clarita has met criteria that trigger the dual-language format, city spokeswoman Gail Ortiz said. The challengers are Michael Cruz, a paralegal in the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office; Jo Ann Smith Curtis, a retired trial attorney; Ken Dean, a teacher and business owner; Mark Hershey, a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department sergeant; Dwight McDonald, a California Highway Patrol sergeant; Jack Murphy, a businessman; Lynne Plambeck, a business owner and Newhall County Water District board member; and Henry Schultz, a retired scientist. More than 79,000 of the city’s 175,000 residents are registered to vote – 5,000 more than in the 2004 race when voters re-elected Councilmen Bob Kellar and Cameron Smyth. Absentee ballots have accounted for more than half of all votes cast in the 2000, 2002 and 2004 races. So far, voters have cast more than 5,000 absentee ballots for Tuesday’s race, Dawson said. “More people are voting by mail,” Dawson said. “It’s more convenient; they can fit it into their own schedule.” After the polls close Tuesday night, spectators can watch a ballot-counting machine tally the votes precinct by precinct in council chambers. Those who prefer to stay home can tune to Channel 20 for a live TV broadcast. Absentee votes will be counted first. Unofficial results may be posted on the city’s Web site by 10 p.m. The final outcome may not be known until signatures on absentee and provisional ballots cast at the polls are verified by the County Registrar-Recorder. The official winners will be certified at the April 25 City Council meeting. Sample ballots will be available at City Hall through election day, but it is too late to apply for an absentee ballot. Marked absentee ballots can be cast at City Hall or at a designated polling place.

Farmer who starved animals given three month suspended jail sentence

first_imgA farmer who was told he should not be near any living creature has been given a three month suspended jail sentence.Leslie Stewart, 69, had been told a number of weeks ago not to keep any animals on his farm at The Thorn, Letterkenny, Co Donegal, by Judge Paul Kelly. It followed inspections by vets and animal welfare inspectors from the ISPCA in which several horses and donkeys were found starving on Stewart’s lands.Several of the animals had to be put down.Judge Kelly had warned “I want to be sure that there are no animals on his property, I want to verify that. This man should not be near or in control of any living creature,” he said.He found Stewart guilty of four charges in connection with animal cruelty earlier this month.He issued an order banning Stewart from keeping animals and ordered him to appear before Letterkenny District Court today for an updated report from vets.Veterinary Inspector with the Department of Agriculture, Desmond Lavin, told the court that he had called to Stewart’s farm on October 19th last after Judge Kelly had put the ban on him keeping animals.On that occasion he found 5 goats, one pot bellied pig with nine piglets, 3 dogs and 3 cats.He warned him that he was not allowed to keep animals and told him he would be returning which he did so on October 30th last.On that day all the animals had gone apart from 3 cats which Mr Stewart said were stray animals.Judge Paul Kelly said he did not want any animals on Mr Stewart’s property and told him not to be feeding the stray cats.He said earlier the only reason he was not sending Stewart to jail was because of his age.He sentenced him to three months in prison on one cruelty charge but suspended the jail sentence for 12 months and took the other charges into consideration.He also awarded the ISPCA €250 vet fees for the removal of several ponies from Mr Stewart;s lands at an earlier date.And he warned Stewart’s solicitor, Mr Kieran O’Gorman to tell his client that he risks going to jail if he keeps any more animals on his lands in future.Farmer who starved animals given three month suspended jail sentence was last modified: November 1st, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:crueltydogsdonegalLeslie Stewartlast_img read more

HARPS HOPING TO BUILD ON SOLID START AGAINST LEADERS LONGFORD

first_imgShaun McGowan makes his 200th appearance for Finn Harps as the top two in the First Division go head-to-head at Finn Park on Saturday evening when Longford Town come to Donegal (kick-off 7.45pm).Longford visit Finn Park in top spot, and are the only team still with a 100% record after two games. Harps sit just behind them on four points and followed up their opening day draw in Waterford with a 4-1 demolition of Cobh Ramblers last Friday night in Ballybofey.“I was delighted to get the three points and start off our season at home with a positive result and overall a decent performance,” said Harps boss Peter Hutton after the game. “In general, I thought the team worked extremely hard and competed well against a good Cobh side. First half we started very bright and soared into an early two goal lead but then conceded a sloppy goal to allow Cobh back into the game.“We responded really well though and scored again to extend our lead and that I believe was an important goal to dampen Cobh’s spirits prior to half-time. Second half I thought we were very good and dominated the half and should have won more comfortably but I was happy to get the season up and running.”Although Harps were comfortable winners in the end, Cobh could have scored on a couple of occasions before their goal did eventually arrive. However, Hutton said he was well aware of the threats of the visiting strikeforce.“Of course it’s a worry when we are conceding chances, but realistically I knew that Cobh would possess a goal threat given the quality of their front two of Davin O’Neil and Connor Meade,” said Hutton. “Also their wide players of Martin Deady and young Alan O’Flynn will create and score goals no doubt over the course of the season but second half I thought we dealt with that threat extremely well.” Hutton is full of praise for Saturday’s visitors to Finn Park, and believes the Longford men are one of the favourites for the one automatic promotion spot on offer from this season’s First Division. He is, however, looking forward to the task of taking on Tony Cousin’s side at the weekend.“We as a group are looking forward to the game and again it should be a good battle with both teams full of confidence,” he said. “I attended their recent game against Waterford and was impressed by how they responded after going a goal behind to come back to win the game which showed good character.“Longford are also a physically big side and will pose a threat from set pieces so we will need to be on our guard. They have recruited well in the off season bringing in players such as Corrie Treacy, Willie Tyrell, Brian Mc Carthy and goalkeeper Chris Bennion to strengthen their defensive options but have also signed quality players like forwards David O’Sullivan and Michael Ischael, whilst players of the calibre of Keith Gillespie and Willo McDonagh and Gary Shaw remain.“They have gathered a formidable squad and don’t hide the fact that anything less than promotion will be seen as a poor season. In saying that though we ourselves are focuse6d on our own game and will hope to build on the good start to the season we’ve had. We are certainly looking forward to the game and will relish the challenge.”Harps may have to plan without Sean McCarron, who has scored three goals in the opening two games of the season, while Paul McVeigh is also a doubt. “Sean picked up an ankle injury against Cobh and is now a doubt for the weekend. As of yet he hasn’t trained this week and will receive treatment throughout the week to give him a realistic chance of making it but at the moment he’s certainly doubtful. Paul McVeigh is also struggling with a stomach bug and had to withdraw from training as a result so again he’ll be monitored over the week.”Harps have finished all three games this season strongly – two in the league, and the EA Sports League Cup game against the Mayo League – and have scored second six second half goals in those three games. Hutton said it’s all down to the hard work that his players put in during pre-season.“In both games, firstly against Waterford and then last week against Cobh I thought our second half performances were very good and I believe that is a testament to the players’ fitness levels. I spoke to the players about that aspect of our game and how this should merely reinforce the fact that already, so early in the season, they can see for themselves the benefits of their hard work and commitment thus far.“The players attitude to training both on the field and in the gym with the guys from Optimal Fitness has been first class and I’m delighted for them that they can now see that that level of commitment is a necessity if we are to be successful and there are already signs of it bearing fruit.” Longford Town have won on just eight of their 38 visits to Finn Park since the teams first met in 1982 – however, four of those victories have come in their last five trips to Ballybofey. The last meeting between the two sides was in the final game of last season, when Kevin McHugh’s goal was the only difference between the sides.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~TEAM NEWSSuspended: Thomas McBride (automatic red card suspension)Doubtful: Sean McCarron (ankle), Paul McVeigh (stomach bug).Injured: Ciaran Coll (cartilage tear).Form Guide (last six league games)Finn Harps: D-L-L-W-D-W (8 pts)Longford Town: L-L-L-L-W-W (6 pts)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Last six home games against Longford Town14-May-10 – Finn Harps 2-0 Longford Town (First Division)22-Apr-11 – Finn Harps 1-2 Longford Town (First Division)06-Jun-11 – Finn Harps 0-1 Longford Town (FAI Cup)08-Oct-11 – Finn Harps 1-2 Longford Town (First Division)23-Jun-12 – Finn Harps 1-3 Longford Town (First Division)13-Oct-12 – Finn Harps 1-0 Longford Town (First Division)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Goalscorers 2013Sean McCarron – 3Kevin McHugh – 2Thomas McBride – 1 (in League Cup)Matt Harkin – 1 (in League Cup)James Doherty – 1 (in League Cup)Marc Brolly – 1 (in League Cup)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Results 2013 (Harps goalscorers in brackets)15-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 4-1 Cobh Ramblers (McCarron 2, McHugh 2)08-Mar-2013 – AL – Waterford United 1-1 Finn Harps (McCarron)03-Mar-2013 – LC – Mayo League 1-4 Finn Harps (Harkin, Doherty, Brolly, McBride)HARPS HOPING TO BUILD ON SOLID START AGAINST LEADERS LONGFORD was last modified: March 20th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:finn harpsLongford TownPeter Huttonlast_img read more

We could not fight nature against Sudan; Morley Byekwaso

first_imgThe Hippos conceded twice from set-plays against Sudan on Wednesday. (PHOTO/FUFA)The Uganda U20 men’s football national team, the Hippos’ head coach Morley Byekwaso has come out to blame his side’s failure to defeat Sudan on nature.The Hippos threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with their Sudanese counterparts at the Pece Stadium in Gulu on Wednesday afternoon.Steven Sserwadda and Bright Anukani put Byekwaso’s side 2-0 up but two strikes inside the last 16 minutes of the game, by Sudan ensured the contest ends all square.The result means that Uganda finished third on the group A log and only managed to qualify for the quarter finals as one of two best third placed teams in the competition.Speaking after the game, Byekwaso thanked his side but also lauded Sudan.“I would like to thank the boys for the input they invested into the game, noted Byekwaso.“The boys fought so hard so as to win, tried out several strategies due to their style of play, so as to overcome them but in the end it would just not be. They capitalized on their chances and they literally took the day.“They came with a direct approach towards us and used their height advantage to hurt us.”Sudan scored their goals off set-pieces, ensuring that they imposed their physical on to Uganda.The first came off a corner in the 76th minute before another one minute from time via the same setting.“Both of their goals came via set plays and we could not do anything about it, continued the former KCCA FC midfielder.“It is something that we should look at in future so as we try to balance our team in height and weight because it is what caused us the issues against Sudan.”The Hippos have exhibited great attacking tendencies throughout the group stages, scoring a total of 8 goals in three game.They will feel they should have scored more after missing a host of opportunities especially in the first two games against Eritrea and Djibouti.With an array of attacking talent at his disposal, Byekwaso can sit and relax as he is sure his team will continue creating chances and probably score more goals.However, at the other end, the Hippos have been letting in goals too.They have conceded four so far and at least once in each of the three games played.Speaking about his team consistently conceding, this is what Byekwaso had to say;“All teams have strength and weaknesses.“Our strength is about attacking but we are trying so much to have compactness in defence.“Unfortunately we are deprived of physic but i am optimistic the issue will be sorted in the future.”It would be easy for someone to think that Uganda should scrap their style of play to accommodate better defending but Byekwaso does not agree.“We will not sacrifice our attacking approach in the name of trying to defend better.“We will continue trying to impose our style because at the end of the day, the best way to defend is by attacking.”“We have tried to adjust our game according to the opposition and in the first half against Sudan, it worked but like i said, we could not fight nature and that is why we conceded the two goals.”Uganda is the defending champions of the CECAFA U20 after winning the last edition in 2010. With that tag coming alongside their name, they are clearly under pressure to defend their crown.However, Byekwaso claims the only pressure that the team faces comes from being the host nation.“We are naturally under pressure because the tournament is at home and not that we are defending champions.”The Hippos have earned a lot of praise before and during the tournament especially due to the fact that they have ‘a lot’ of talent at their disposal.With many of them having gone through the FUFA Junior League and some taking part in the 2019 U20 Africa Cup of Nations, a lot is expected of them.They will however have to balance their play between attacking and defending if they are to win the CECAFA U20 crown for a 5th time in historyTheir next assignment will be against South Sudan in the quarter finals.Commentslast_img read more
