Hazard the latest Chelsea FC star to back Mourinho; insists he was not upset at being dropped against Porto
October 11, 2015
Then it is my task to encourage the boys on the field.
International break might be a welcome distraction for Hazard
With the Belgians scheduled to face Andorra and Israel during the international break and set to confirm qualification for next summers tournament in France, Hazard could well get the confidence boost needed to get his season going.
His support for Mourinho is also another positive sign, and if taken at face value, indicates that even though there may be differences of opinion, the Chelsea FC squad remains a strong unit. Ahead of their m88 game against Andorra, Hazard spoke to Voetbal Krant (via WAGNH) about the situation at Chelsea FC: I know, you guys. It is unlikely that Hazard will go the entire season without hitting a purple patch, and the Blues fortunes will almost certainly change when that happens.
Belgian superstar Eden Hazard has become the latest Chelsea FC player to back manager Jos Mourinho, insisting he was not upset by the Portugueses decision to leave him on the bench against FC Porto in the Champions League
2014-2015 PFA Player of the Year Eden Hazard has had an objectively poor season thus far by his standards, with the Chelsea FC team as a whole struggling with a lack of confidence brought on by their poor early-season form.
Belgium should have no difficulties beating both Andorra and Israel, and even though the Chelsea FC attacker will face opposition of a higher quality in the Premier League, a strong showing in the Red Devils games will help him build up momentum as the Blues enter a crucial period in their season.
While away on Belgium duty, the 24-year-old became the latest player to back Mourinho, while also confessing that he has not been able to come up with an explanation for his poor form, or indeed that of the teams.
Hazard acknowledges poor form, shows Mourinho support
The Belgian is yet to open his account in the Premier League, with his strike against Arsenal FC being ruled as a Calum Chambers own goal. However, Hazard seems to have found his goalscoring boots for the national team, scoring in both of their qualifying games in the previous international break.. [My form] could be better. Personally, it is not very good, but also the team (Chelsea) is in a dip.
Honestly, I do not know [the cause]. But is not that normal in a football career? Sometimes you happen to fall.
The interview appears to have been a fairly informal one, with Hazard also insisting that he wasnt upset by Mourinhos decision to bench him against FC Porto: I have no problems with [Mourinho putting me on the bench against Porto]. But Im not worried. For me it is the first time that the momentum is a little less
Champions League’s Crazy Eights predictions
October 11, 2015
The Madrid side are reveling in their one-point lead over the Catalans in La Liga standings, while Barca who tied Los Colchoneros 0-0 at the Vicente Caldron in January will host Madrid on the last game of the season at the Camp Nou with at least seasonal bragging rights on the line. Now the teams have international competition matches on April 1st and 9th to add to their servings.
Playing Barcelona at home when it matters is a daunting task, just ask any world class club save Bayern. Prediction: Real makes a meal of Dortmund, beating them decisively if perhaps not in as demoralizing a manner for Dortmund as some of the Real fans might want.
On the field, the teams match up well and each has the big guns to take over a m88 match or stop someone from so doing. Prediction: In the end Ibra progresses in the only stage left him to make good on his claim that the World Cup will miss him more than him it, and PSG will squeeze by Chelsea and into the semifinals. It was to be expected that with three Spanish Football teams in the pot two might just be drawn together and La Liga rivals Barcelona FC and Atletico Madrid obliged.
On the mirror side a potentially all-Brazilian defense of Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Alex, and Maxwell would have their hands full with the likes of Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba, to pick three of Mou’s. In a year of mostly downer news for the Red Devils, and with a potential way out of the morass they have been mired in for so long, the final straw was delivered in the form of the injury to Robin Van Persie which will keep him out of uniform for the next six weeks.
Nothing in last year’s Champions League competition was more disturbing than the officiating of the match between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmnud at Westfalenstadion. Prediction: Barca moves on with a statement win at home despite lesser luck at the Calderon. And that may have been the gods’ kindness–an exit at the hands of the champs is no dishonor.
For Merengues fans the end result, a 2-0 win at home that yet meant going out 4-3 on aggregate when a single extra goal would have seen them through, was a bitter pill to swallow.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s PSG got to play the Only One’s Chelsea FC, Real Madrid got a grudge rematch with Borussia Dortmund, and Manchester United have the chance to make up for, if not erase from memory, a dismal season (by their standards) by eliminating all-world, super-club and cup holders Bayern Munich.
In the competition’s biggest clash of egos PSG’s Ibrahimovic and Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho get to face off in another entertaining match-up. David Moyes and troops, Bayern is a tough obstacle to surpass. This is well known Atletico that comes knocking and despite their domestic standing and growing international pedigree familiarity does breed contempt and Barca are not impressed. The Madrid side is playing its best football at just the right time and if they beat Barca on Sunday the high will carry them well into the Spring months.
To say that Barcelona and Atletico have had much to compete for lately is to understate their 2014 rivalry. Given how this season has gone though, this Sunday’s Clasico at the Bernabeu and/or May 18th’s match in Barcelona may well decide the domestic league title.
The draw for the 2014 Champions League final eight teams has some fantastic, some might say crazy, match ups. The uber-player and uber-coach have been kind to one another in public utterances and most recent writings you might peruse, but come play time these two are bound to offer up some memorable perspectives to accompany the application of their abundant football prowess.
Prediction: Pep Guardiola’s Bayern win comfortably, convincingly, but not by a KO–one has to believe that ManU has too much pride and experience to allow that to happen–this should be a unanimous decision instead.
Cristiano Ronaldo is having a career year to go along with his FIFA Ballon d’Or and a Champions League tournament win, as a precursor to bigger stages this summer is just what the Portuguese superstar wants and needs–la decima on his watch. The video speaks for itself but the Spanish side, many felt, had as much reason to complain as did the Malaga fans playing the same opponent the previous fortnight at the same stadium.
Without Robin, and despite having Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck back to their scoring ways of late, ManU simply is no match for the European club champs. Unfortunately, even if things were going swimmingly for poor Mr. A defensive roster of Petr Cech, Branislaw Ivanovic, Ashley Cole, David Luis and Gary Cahill, to pick a few potential starters, aided by the defensive minded Mou, should be a match for PSG coach Laurent Blanc’s attacking trio of Zlatan, Edinson Cavani, and Ezequiel Lavezzi.. But the gods have their ways and this year it is Real on the upswing and on a mission, and Dortmund is simply the cherry on top. Manchester United fans must be asking themselves if the gods are truly that cruel or that kind. This will be a hard fought tie with the Catalans prevailing as Lionel Messi rounds out into full-throttle shape at the right time and Neymar comes into his own at about the same time

Manchester United and Liverpool FC is the Premier League’s fiercest rivalry
September 11, 2015

It has long been English football’s most combustible fixture, a contest liable to explode at any second after a malicious tackle or word out of turn.
Manchester United vs Liverpool is the Premier League’s answer to the ‘Clasico’, a rivalry between two cities on so many levels condensed into 90 minutes on the football pitch.
We’ve had full-scale melees, rash two-footed challenges, ranting and raving, and plenty of handbags.
Ahead of Saturday’s showdown at Old Trafford, we take a look back at 10 flashpoints in this fixture from the modern era.
EVRA AND SUAREZ
The most controversial incident of recent times saw Liverpool striker Luis Suarez fined 40,000 and banned for eight games after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra in the Anfield contest on October 15, 2011.
A Football Association investigation found Suarez used the word ‘negro’ five times during an argument and concluded that the Uruguayan’s testimony was unreliable and inconsistent. Liverpool continued to protest his innocence.
The controversy rumbled on when the teams next met, with Suarez appearing to snub Evra’s handshake before the match, leading to further condemnation.

VIDIC’S RED CARDS
Nemanja Vidic didn’t exactly have the best disciplinary record against Liverpool, having been sent off four times between 2008 and 2014.
The first came in a 2-1 loss for United at Anfield in September 2008, leading with the elbow in an aerial duel with Xabi Alonso and earning a second yellow card.
The Vidic dismissal that remains in the memory came in Liverpool’s 4-1 win at Old Trafford in March 2009 when he finally snapped after an afternoon of being tormented by Fernando Torres, bringing down Steven Gerrard and seeing red.
Further dismissals followed at Anfield in October 2009 – making it three in as many games – and then in Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Old Trafford in the depths of the Moyes era in March 2014.

KEANE AND FOWLER
This iconic photograph from the 1996 FA Cup Final sums up this fixture’s antagonism as Roy Keane and Robbie Fowler exchange words.
Hero worshipped at their respective clubs, there was no other contest they enjoyed more.
It was United’s day, winning 1-0 thanks to a late Eric Cantona winner and completing the Double for the second time in three seasons.

GERRARD’S RAPID RED
The 16th – and most recent – red card in this fixture came back in March when Steven Gerrard, facing United for the final time in a Red shirt, was dismissed just 38 seconds after coming on as a substitute.
The Liverpool skipper stamped on Ander Herrera, leaving referee Martin Atkinson little choice.

There have been plenty of confrontations between the two sets of players over the years but the March 2011 meeting at Anfield seemed to specialise in them.
There was one after Jamie Carragher’s x-rated challenge on Nani and also when Rafael da Silva unwisely decided to pick a fight with the whole Liverpool side.

NEVILLE VS THE SCOUSERS
Gary Neville was never too fond of Liverpool Football Club, nor the city of Liverpool, nor the people of Liverpool.
Never the most popular figure on Merseyside, things escalated in 2006 when Neville marked Rio Ferdinand’s late winner at Old Trafford by running to the away section and kissing the badge on his shirt.
Various outspoken comments about Liverpool and clashes with Jamie Carragher, now his co-pundit on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, did little to repair the damage.

Neville’s outspoken antipathy towards Liverpool always ensured him a warm welcome at Anfield
And Neville’s many clashes with Liverpool favourite Carragher during their playing days did little to improve relations
RAFA’S ‘FACTS’ RANT
In one of the most surreal moments in Premier League history, Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez in January 2009 decided to launch an extraordinary critique of Sir Alex Ferguson.
During a rant that left many questioning the Spaniard’s sanity, he claimed Ferguson was the only manager in the Premier League who could escape punishment over disciplinary breaches, accused the Scot of playing ‘mind games’ because he was scared of Liverpool’s challenge and even suggested his United counterpart arranged the fixture list.
The infamous ‘facts’ speech was met with widespread ridicule.. All of a sudden, United look rattled and Irwin is shown a second yellow card by referee David Elleray for booting the ball away in an attempt to wind down the clock.
It proves costly, with United old boy Paul Ince popping up to equalise in the dying moments. An expensive fit of rage for one Liverpool fan.

IRWIN SEES RED
May 1999 and Manchester United are closing in on their famous Treble triumph. Liverpool are determined to halt the trophy charge.
In a pulsating game played out to a febrile Anfield atmosphere, United take a two-goal lead through Dwight Yorke’s header and a Denis Irwin penalty.
But Liverpool rally and Jamie Redknapp halves the deficit midway through the second-half. United won the match 1-0 and lifted the trophy
SHELVEY AND FERGUSON
It was September 2012 and the Anfield fixture was played against the backdrop of the landmark publication of findings of an independent panel investigating the Hillsborough Disaster, raising hopes that justice might finally be achieved for ‘the 96′.
Before the match, United legend Sir Bobby Charlton presented flowers to Liverpool’s record scorer Ian Rush as opposing captains Gerrard and Ryan Giggs released 96 red balloons in memory of those who lost their lives.
But the goodwill went out the window on 39 minutes when Jonjo Shelvey lunged in two-footed at Jonny Evans and was shown a straight red card. And when his under-struck 25-yarder squirmed under Jerzy Dudek in the 21st minute, he knew how he was going to celebrate.
Running to the Kop, Rooney cupped his ears and was pelted with all kinds of objects, among them a mobile phone

Sports Bettor Billy Walter’s Winning Streak
January 24, 2017
Had no air conditioning.
Asked what his biggest win was on a round of golf, Walters said, “Probably a million bucks, around a million dollars.”
“Ten,” McCarlie said.
But after 30 years of unprecedented success, the man who calls himself a Kentucky hillbilly agreed for the first time to open the door into his betting life in Las Vegas – a life he describes as one long hustle – in betting parlors, in pool rooms and on the golf course.
“When I met him, he was driving an old Cadillac full of bullet holes. He used to make his living off it. Now, he’s a very wealthy man,” Walters replied.

“Yes. Believe me,” McCarlie added.
“How much money have you taken off him m88 over the years?” Logan asked.
When it comes to gambling, everybody knows the house has the advantage. And he showed us how the hustle worked with Gene McCarlie, an old friend and casino owner.
“Who’s the better golfer?” correspondent Lara Logan asked Walters and McCarlie on a golf course.
Walters just missed a 60-foot putt, but after only three holes, he was up $17,000.
© 2011 CBS. So, how does a professional gambler approach the big game?
“By far. Most bettors come to a sports book inside the casino, to lay their bets, wagering $2.5 billion dollars every year. Small potatoes for Walters.
“That’s a lot of money,” Logan remarked.
The Super Bowl: America’s Biggest Bet
More people bet on the Super Bowl than any other sporting event.
He bets on football and basketball, is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and has been so successful that many Las Vegas bookmakers are afraid to even take his bets.
“I’ll take 15,” Walters countered.
He gambled on the Super Bowl last year and won $3.5 million. I lost it all in the Horseshoe Hotel playing blackjack before I went to bed,” he replied.
Asked if there’s anything he doesn’t gamble on, Walters replied, “Not really.”
On the day we went along, the two buddies decided to play for $5,000 a hole, with a few side bets along the way. Walters has been almost as elusive as Howard Hughes, avoiding publicity, reluctant to reveal his secrets. I never got to bed to with it. . But there are some high rollers who consistently win, and it’s hard to find anyone better at winning than Billy Walters. All rights reserved.
“Probably $400,000,” Walters said.
“He is,” both men replied simultaneously, laughing.
“What’s the price?” Walters asked.
“Five-to-one for birdie,” McCarlie replied.
“What’s the most you’ve ever made on a hole?” Logan asked.
“You got it for a dime!” Walters agreed.
When Walters golfs, it’s mostly for fun. Nevada is the only state in the country where taking bets on individual games is legal
âHow to Choose the Right Sportsbook!â
January 6, 2017
I would say that US bettors are at most risk since they are generally forced to bet at offshore sportsbooks due to legality issues. Therefore you should think of the sportsbook you are considering as a bank – a place that you intend to keep funds long term.
Read press articles as opposed to reviews – reviews are usually written by the sportsbook’s marketing team.
Test run the software by joining and playing for free – most sportsbooks offer this facility.
Find out if your funds are insured or separated in ESCROW accounts so that if the sportsbook company goes under – your funds are still safe.
Find out if the sportsbook is independently audited.
How long has the operation been online – three to four years is usually a good marker as a minimum.
Test out the customer services to see if they meet your standards or the standards they promise you.
If you know about betting already, then check some of their odds and lines – are they in keeping with what you would expect? Some less scrupulous sportsbooks offer very attractive prices to lure unsuspecting bettors.
Find out if the sportsbook is part of a larger group of companies. I have had at least three online sportsbooks go broke on me – luckily my losses were kept to a few thousand dollars – that may sound a lot but it could have been a lot worse.
So what do you look for: . Often these website owners know nothing about betting, do not hold accounts with the sportsbooks they are advertising and have not researched the companies they are involved with.
Not all the above are critical – but help towards finding a secure book. I also like SportingBet (www.SBSportsbook.com) who take US customers and cater for global sports.
“How to Choose the Right Sportsbook!”
by: Daniel B. Options should be available that are ‘free’ or where the sportsbook absorbs the charges. But ask yourself ; “how easy is it to get access to my money and how much does it cost?”
So you have decided to start betting online – or maybe you just want to find a new trustworthy sportsbook – what do you need to look out for?
If you have already have an account with a sportsbook watch out for lapses in customer service and slowness of payment – these can be signs that the company could be in trouble.

The UK has a number of established books including William Hill, Ladbrokes, Coral, and Victor Chandler.
Well I am in a position to speak from some experience – I did at one time hold accounts with about sixty bookmakers in Europe, UK, Australia and offshore – the latter catering mainly to the US market. King
It is not that easy finding a reputable sportsbook – partly because the web is populated by website owners who will sing the praises m88 indonesia of a sportsbook or casino simply because they earn revenue from signing up customers via an affiliate program. These vary quite a bit from book to book. The offshore books with whom I work are top grade but it is in the offshore environment that problems occasionally occur. It is, therefore, critical that those US customers put in the research before signing up.

Should College Football Be Eliminated?
September 11, 2016
Although this incident might not have been directly related to college football in general, it brought the media’s attention to the existence of college football programs, and created space to discuss the pros and cons of these programs.
One of the scandalous elements of the Penn State affair was the role of head coach Joe Paterno. Bigger sports, like football and basketball, seem to be in a league of their own. Then-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was accused in 2011 of having sexually abused several young boys. Universities should be focusing on academics and education, instead of sports, some say.
Other College Sports
Many of the arguments supporting the abolition of college football could also be applied to other sports at the college level. Paterno was fired and died of lung cancer soon after. Universities promote their football programs in order to protect this revenue source–so much so, that some colleges are known more for their football programs than for their academic programs. That’s why, the sport is so popular at the college level, which is why it is such a big money-maker for universities. Additionally, young athletes might have to go directly to the professional level, rather than attending college and earning degrees. Even people with no ties to universities are interested in college football, and consider it a favorite pastime. For many universities, football is an important source of revenue, and helps them maintain state-of-the-art facilities, updated buildings, and well-kept grounds. Amidst rising concern about player safety and the recent spate of scandals, these voices seem to be getting stronger by the day.. This is one argument in favor of banning college football.
Of course, banning college football is probably not a very popular idea among the general public. If these sports programs can’t be scaled back to a more appropriate level, perhaps they should be eliminated altogether.
Do We Foresee a Ban in the Near Future?
In more than 20 years I’ve spent studying the issue, I have yet to hear a convincing argument that college football has anything do with what is presumably the primary purpose of higher education: academics.
–H.G. They serve mainly as extracurricular activities for students, and foster healthy intercollegiate competition. Some athletic programs are relatively small, and do not have a large impact on how universities function. This incident caused some people to question the large amount of power football coaches have at many American universities. Some people argue that this is counter to the purpose and intent of the university system. Some people say that, in schools with large football programs, coaches are overpaid, and have too much influence over what goes on at the schools. They have gone beyond extracurricular, and have become a sort of secondary function of their own. Many college football players go on to join the NFL, and football provides a way for students, staff, and alumni, to express their school pride, and to connect with the campus community.
Despite this long-standing tradition, some people are opposed to college football, and think it should be banned. Some people accused Paterno of sheltering Sandusky from punishment, claiming that he and other high-level university officials knew about the illicit behavior, and did nothing. Bissinger
The Penn State Scandal
The arguments in favor of banning football are widely varied, but they came to light after several college football related scandals, including the Penn State child sex abuse scandal. Football and Funding
The issue of money extends beyond just the salaries of college football coaches. This would probably not be an improvement in the lives of professional football players.
Overall, it seems unlikely that college football is going away any time soon, but the issue might force us to think about the ways that college athletic departments could be improved.
Why Should College Football be Eliminated?
College football is a time-honored American tradition. Millions of people would be sorely disappointed if college football went away. Even Jack Kerouac, the famous Beat Generation writer of On the Road and The Dharma Bums, played football at Columbia University, before dropping out
NFL Teams in Alphabetical Order
September 11, 2016
It is now one of the richest sporting leagues in the world. Louis Rams
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
As the biggest sports league that American football has ever seen, the craze about the NFL, its players, and the yearly Super Bowl only gets greater and wider. Also known as Super Bowl Sunday, it is a day on which maximum food is consumed, after Thanksgiving!
There are a total of 32 NFL teams, which have been divided into various zones of the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). Here however, is something for those of you looking for such a list in alphabetical order.
Green Bay Packers
Kansas City Chiefs
New England Patriots
New Orleans Saints
New York Giants
New York Jets
San Diego Chargers
San Francisco 49ers
St. Every year, the Super Bowl (the NFL championship game) is what excites football fans the most, with everyone looking forward to spending time together and watching the big game over some delicious food. Usually, you will always find a zone-wise distribution of these teams. A very interesting fact is that, over 8 million pounds of guacamole is consumed on Super Bowl Sunday, and the sales of antacids increase drastically the next day! Such is the impact of the NFL, which seems to be only getting bigger with every passing year.. The AFC and NFC have four zones each-North, South, East, and West. Each zone has four teams, resulting in 16 teams under the AFC, and 16 under the NFC. Formerly known as the American Professional Football Association, and started in the year 1920, the group soon adapted itself to the National Football League in the year 1922. As such, the total number of NFL teams is 32. A lot of people plan Super Bowl Sunday way in advance, and ensure that they have no engagements or commitments that day

Five Great Football Simulation Games
September 10, 2016
The game features a number of options that allows players to simulate seasons and more. The game has gone through many enhancements focusing in both general management aspects of gameplay as well as the simulation part of the football games themselves. The database of players dates back to the 1950s, so players can also simulate historical seasons.
The video below demonstrates what gameplay looks like:
This game features both a professional version and a college version.
Goal Line Blitz: http://goallineblitz.com/
The best simulations do not focus on graphics at all. Action! PC Football focuses more heavily on the game simulation and is widely regarded for the designer’s thoroughness in creating the game.
Barcode Games: Professional Football Simulator
When it comes to modern football video games, nothing compares in popularity with the Madden series produced by EA Sports. Players can simulate individual games as well as entire seasons or multiple seasons. The list below features five of the best simulation games.
Second and Ten
Solecismic Software first produced Front Office Football in the 1990s as one of the first simulations to focus on management aspects of football rather than actual gameplay itself. The results are based on actual NFL stats, so the results are accurate from a statistical standpoint.
Action! PC Football
There are several other simulations available, including the following:
Front Office Football

Alabama’s Nick Saban says satellite camps are ‘bad for college football’
September 9, 2016
If they have a prospect, they can have a camp. “I’m saying it’s bad for college football. Harbaugh can do whatever he wants to do if he thinks that’s what’s best. There needs to be somebody who looks out for what’s best for the game, not the SEC or the Big Ten or Jim Harbaugh. There needs to be a [college football] commissioner.”
“They should come [to Florida],” McElwain said. That’s bigger than all this. And who gets exposed on that? I go to a camp and talk to some guy I don’t know from Adam’s house cat, and he’s representing some kid cause he’s putting a camp on, and then I’m in trouble for talking to this guy.”
“Anybody can have a camp now. We have to worry about our players doing the right things with the limited time we have them, but we’re not going to do that because we have to be somewhere else to see someone else.”
“I’m not blaming Jim Harbaugh,” Saban said. However, in April the NCAA overturned the ban and ruled that satellite camps would be allowed.
Saban was asked whom he would want as commissioner.
“I don’t have a candidate,” Saban said. “It’s as good of [high school] football as there is in the country.”
. “That’s why we have a combine and all these other things.
Saban also questioned who keeps track of whether players paid for the camps and what, if any, compliance people are involved.
“Creating all these third parties. “I’m not into politics.”
Florida coach Jim McElwain has a unique perspective because 10 of the SEC’s other 13 schools participate in satellite camps in the Sunshine State.
“Until this satellite camp issue came up, you still had to go to the high school, go through the coach, and players came to your camp if they were interested in learning,” Saban said. It would be similar to pro days for juniors and seniors and would allow NFL scouts to better evaluate those players.
Saban blasted satellite camps because they incorporate third parties into recruiting and there aren’t any guidelines.
Saban has never been a fan of satellite camps, characterizing them as “ridiculous.”
“If you ask the NFL, ‘How can we maintain trust with our players when you’re giving us inaccurate information?’ their response is, ‘We don’t know enough about the guys to really give you the information, because all we can really go on is film evaluation,’” Saban said at the SEC annual meetings. The integrity of the game.
The SEC had banned its coaches from participating in satellite camps, and the NCAA followed with a satellite-camp ban.
Under current NCAA rules, once underclassmen declare for the NFL draft, they lose their remaining eligibility.
Saban has the opposite viewpoint on satellite camps as Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, who has embraced them like no other coach.
Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. There have been no specific guidelines relative to how we’re managing control of this stuff. Then you’re expected to go to that camp and they can use you to promote their camp because Ohio State is coming, Alabama is coming, whoever else is coming.
McElwain obviously would prefer that other schools didn’t recruit in Florida, but he knows that’s not realistic.
After initially saying he would not discuss satellite camps, Saban went off in a five-minute rant that would have made Howard Beale proud, comparing the satellite camps to “the wild, wild West.”
Saban and Arkansas’ Bret Bielema believe a combine for underclassmen could help solve the problem. What do they do with the money? And who makes sure the kid paid to go to camp?
“Why should we be promoting anybody else’s camp anywhere? All we’re doing is allowing all these other people that we spend all of our time at the NCAA saying you can’t recruit through a third-party person, and that’s exactly what you’re doing.
MIRAMAR BEACH, Florida — Alabama coach Nick Saban made one thing crystal clear Tuesday at the SEC spring meetings: He is not a fan of satellite camps.
“This is the wild, wild West at its best. We want accurate information when that’s all said and done in December.”
Among other topics Saban touched upon Tuesday, he said he would like to see underclassmen who leave school early have the option of returning after testing their prospects for the NFL draft, similar to what happens in college basketball.
“It’s bad for college football,” Saban said.
“All the people that say this is creating opportunities for kids, this is all about recruiting,” Saban said. “By doing what we’re doing now, we’re doing what we do in every other sport that we’re complaining about every day — AAU basketball and all this.
“The coaches, players and people who play it. Now who does that? Now because we have the Power 5, everyone is doing what they want. “That’s what it’s about.
“Someone sponsors the camp, they pay them the money. But what’s best for the game of college football. It’s happening outside the normal evaluation window, which means we’re taking time away from our players
Entries in long-hidden notebook show Pete Rose bet on baseball as player
September 9, 2016
Attorney’s Office internal memorandum from 2000 that requested the spiral notebook’s transfer said Bertolini’s closed file has “sufficient historical or other value to warrant its continued preservation by the United States Government.” The memorandum listed among its attachments a copy of the notebook, but a copy of the memorandum provided by the National Archives had no attachments and had a section redacted.. So Barney and Flynn, posing as a couple looking for a home, called a real estate agent and were given a guided tour of Bertolini’s house. The U.S. The documents go beyond the evidence presented in the 1989 Dowd report that led to Rose’s banishment and provide the first written record that Rose bet while he was still on the field.
“We knew that [Bertolini] recorded the bets, and that he bet himself, but we never had his records. The man’s name was Michael Bertolini, and the business he ran out of his home was called Hit King Marketing Inc.
“The rule says, if you bet, it doesn’t say for or against. Dowd’s investigation had established that Rose was hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt at the time he was banished from the game.
On Oct. And that is a very powerful problem,” Dowd said. Attorney’s Office seeking access to the book. [The mob] had a mortgage on Pete while he was a player and manager.”
“It was a mere ‘failure to render [services]‘ complaint,” said Barney, who is now retired. “[Ohio bookie] Ron Peters is a golf pro, so he’s got other occupations. All were denied on the grounds that the notebook had been introduced as a grand jury exhibit and contained information “concerning third parties who were not of investigative interest.”
“This does it. “I was taken aback.”
For 26 years, Pete Rose has kept to one story: He never bet on baseball while he was a player.
It was immediately clear that the many notations of “PETE” in the pages represented Pete Rose.
Barney sent an agent to drive by the address. He refused to give them to us,” Dowd said. They took any records I had whatsoever, and they took different personal belongings and memorabilia from my home.”
Dowd said he wished he’d had the Bertolini notebook in 1989, but he didn’t need it to justify Rose’s banishment. “This is the final piece of the puzzle on a New York betting operation with organized crime. But the boys in New York are about breaking arms and knees.
In April, Rose repeated his denial, this time on Michael Kay’s ESPN New York 98.7 FM radio show, that he bet on baseball while he was a player. 13, a few days after the undercover house tour and after obtaining a search warrant, they searched Bertolini’s home and found evidence that would lead to numerous convictions. Postal Inspection Service in October 1989, nearly two months after Rose was declared permanently ineligible by Major League Baseball. It’s impossible to count the exact number of times he bet on baseball games because not every day’s entries are legible.
Dowd, who reviewed the documents at Outside the Lines’ request, said his investigators had tried but failed to obtain Bertolini’s records, believing they would be the final piece in their case that Rose was betting with mob-connected bookmakers in New York. It’s another device by Pete to try to excuse what he did,” Dowd said. On Monday morning, MLB officials declined to comment about the notebook.
“I wish I had been able to use it [the book] all those years he was denying he bet on baseball,” said Flynn, the former postal inspector. “It reeked of fraud,” Barney said.
The timing for Rose, who played in 72 games in 1986, isn’t great. There was a for sale sign out front, the agent told him. I need to maintain that. District Court in Brooklyn six years later (he served 14 months for tax fraud and a concurrent assault sentence):
The documents are copies of pages from a notebook seized from the home of former Rose associate Michael Bertolini during a raid by the U.S.
“There were numbers and dates and — it was a book for sports betting,” Barney said. Dowd and his team had sworn testimony from bookie Ron Peters that Rose bet on the Reds from 1984 through 1986, but not written documentation. That came during his worst week of the four-month span, when he lost $25,500.
The documents obtained by Outside the Lines, which reflect betting records from March through July 1986, show no evidence that Rose, who was a player-manager in 1986, bet against his team. For 26 years, the notebook has remained under court-ordered seal and is currently stored in the National Archives’ New York office, where officials have declined requests to release it publicly.
To Dowd, one of the most compelling elements of the newly uncovered evidence is that it supports the charge that Rose was betting with mob-connected bookies through Bertolini. That meeting likely will come sometime after the All-Star break. That gave them probable cause to seek a search warrant.
o But on 21 of the days it’s clear he bet on baseball, he gambled on the Reds, including on games in which he played.
o Most bets, regardless of sport, were about $2,000. We tried to get them. It looked to them as if Bertolini had been signing memorabilia with the forged names of some of the most famous baseball players in history: Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Duke Snider, Mike Schmidt and Pete Rose. Dowd recently met with MLB CIO and executive vice president of administration John McHale Jr., who is leading Manfred’s review of Rose’s reinstatement request, to walk McHale through his investigation. One Executive Tools Spiral Notebook.” Two small boxes of other items confiscated in the postal raid on Bertolini’s house went too, including autographed baseballs and baseball cards.
Although the 1989 raid on Bertolini’s house received immediate news coverage, nothing about a betting book became public for five years. He placed his financial interest ahead of the Reds, period.”
“The implications for baseball are terrible. Both agents, former supervisor Craig Barney and former inspector Mary Flynn, said the records were indeed copies of the notebook they seized.
Flynn, who said her first reaction was “Holy mackerel,” said they asked Bertolini about the notebook.
But Rose’s supporters have based part of their case for his reinstatement on his claim that he never bet while he was a player or against his team, saying that sins he committed as a manager shouldn’t diminish what he did as a player.
Last year, Outside the Lines again applied unsuccessfully for access to the notebook but learned it had been transferred to the National Archives under a civil action titled “United States v. This closes the door,” said John Dowd, the former federal prosecutor who led MLB’s investigation.
Bats, balls, books and papers were scattered all over. “We didn’t know anything about Bertolini or his connection [to Rose].”
Outside the Lines tracked down two of the postal inspectors who conducted the raid on Bertolini’s home in 1989 and asked them to review the documents. Therefore at this point, it’s not appropriate to comment on any specifics.” Bertolini’s lawyer, Nicholas De Feis, said his client is “not interested in speaking to anyone about these issues.”
“Bertolini nails down the connection to organized crime on Long Island and New York. They provide a vivid snapshot of how extensive Rose’s betting life was in 1986:
“He wasn’t forthcoming with much information,” she said, “but he did acknowledge to me it was records of bets he made for Pete Rose.”
But new documents obtained by Outside the Lines indicate Rose bet extensively on baseball — and on the Cincinnati Reds – as he racked up the last hits of a record-smashing career in 1986. The largest single bet was $5,500 on the Boston Celtics, a bet he lost.
If the accusation was true, it would constitute mail fraud, but the agents had no probable cause to search Bertolini’s house.
“I got a call at the place where I was working at the time from my brother, and he says, ‘You should come home.’ He said, ‘There’s a bunch of government people here, and they’re here for you.’ At the time, I think it was Mary Flynn of the postal inspector’s office who got on the phone and said, ‘We’re here,’ and she told me why and so forth. But one item stood out: In a box of papers in the basement, Barney said, was a spiral notebook filled with handwritten entries.
o In the time covered in the notebook, from March through July, Rose bet on at least one MLB team on 30 different days. “It was such a mess. Dowd also had testimony and a recorded phone conversation between Bertolini and another Rose associate, Paul Janszen, that established that Bertolini had placed bets for Rose. But Dowd never had the kind of documents that could cement that part of his case, especially in the eyes of fans who wanted to see Rose returned to Major League Baseball.
When the case began, it didn’t look particularly enticing, Barney said. “He’s a liar.”
The two inspectors spotted an item that a complainant said had not been returned. In March of this year, he applied to Manfred for reinstatement. “But when he bet, he was gone. “Never bet as a player: That’s a fact,” he said.
In April, Outside the Lines examined the Bertolini memorabilia kept in the National Archives’ New York office, but the betting book — held apart from everything else — was off-limits. And, of course, [Rose] betting while he was a player.”
Freelance researcher Liam Quinn contributed to this report. Their authenticity has been verified by two people who took part in the raid, which was part of a mail fraud investigation and unrelated to gambling. To be sure, I’m eager to sit down with [MLB commissioner Rob] Manfred to address my entire history — the good and the bad — and my long personal journey since baseball. There was stuff everywhere,” Barney said.
Bertolini offered his take on the raid during his sentencing hearing in U.S. The postal inspector’s office in Brooklyn, New York, had received a complaint that a man in Staten Island had failed to return goods to paying customers that he was supposed to have autographed. After Bertolini pleaded guilty and received a federal prison sentence, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, ESPN and other news organizations filed freedom of information requests with the U.S. Under MLB Rule 21, “Any player, umpire, or club or league official or employee, who shall bet any sum whatsoever upon any baseball game in connection with which the bettor has a duty to perform shall be declared permanently ineligible.”
o Rose bet heavily on college and professional basketball, losing $15,400 on one day in March.
Yes, he admitted in 2004, after almost 15 years of denials, he had placed bets on baseball, but he insisted it was only as a manager.
Rose, through his lawyer, Raymond Genco, issued a statement: “Since we submitted the application earlier this year, we committed to MLB that we would not comment on specific matters relating to reinstatement
