Galliani: “Let’s save football with 22 teams in Serie A”

first_imgThe ex-president of Milan, Adriano Galliani, He explained how he would try to save Italian football from the crisis caused by the coronavirus, as stated Tuttosport: “Let’s save football with a Serie A of 22 teams.” His idea is for the competition to go from having 20 teams to 22, with the clubs at the top of the league table Series B.He also thinks that the first four should be the ones designated to contest the Champions League in the event that the competition is permanently canceled: “The competition is from the Federal Council, but in case of a definitive blockade it would send the first 4 in the Champions League”In any case, he believes that the current campaign should try to end to avoid greater evils once the pandemic is under control: “The season must be completed, obviously for sure, otherwise the whole system is at risk of collapse.” On the other hand, he explained that he fears for the development of the lower categories, since although they do not generate benefits, they fulfill a fundamental social task: “There is no income in Series D, and almost no in Series C. Series C loses 120 million a year, which are set by 60 entrepreneurs with an average of two million euros each. I am afraid. The economic crisis that will hit our country hard and prevent these 60 gentlemen from putting money in next year as well. But Series C and Series D carry out a social task taking children off the streets and some system must be found to ensure that they are I recognize this task. “Finally, Galliani explained that before resuming the competition, it will be necessary for the virus to be controlled and then study how it will affect each club financially: “For Series A and B, it will be necessary to understand what will be the behavior of the public, the sponsors and the televisions. That said, the moment of recovery is marked by the virus, instead of guessing when it will start again or when it will end, it is necessary evaluate which solution will do less damage to football. “last_img read more

Norris Tweah, made the disclosure recently when the associate vice president for Enrollment Management, James Moses Lincoln, presented him a copy of last semester’s academic performance report of the students.He told Mr. Tweah that in spite of the limited facilities at the state-run university, hundreds of students were performing remarkably well.Receiving the list, Tweah commended him and said it was gratifying to know that in spite of limited resources, hundreds of students were striving hard to prepare for tomorrow’s challenges. Based on their excellent academic performances, they will be appropriately honored at a special ceremony as soon as the university reopens. Mr. Tweah said he would work in collaboration with the vice president for Academic Affairs and the UL Administration to honor the students.On the ‘brilliant’ list are seven students who earned perfect scores and obtained a 4.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) in all their courses.

New year, fresh start for Huskies?

first_imgIt starts on Friday against Dawson Creek and finishes with Beaverlodge on Sunday. There is also the matter of a game with Sexsmith sandwiched in between those matchups. Three straight games on home ice against teams right around the Pups in the standings. Yeah, it’s a huge weekend alright. Fort St John surrently sits in 5th place in the NWJHL but they do have games in hand on Dawson Creek in the battle for 4th. The problem with games in hand is you have to win them. And the Huskies haven’t been winning a lot lately. They also have a three game weekend, all on the road, next weekend but more on that in a future blog post. So in the next couple weeks the Huskies will work towards making up those games in hand and they will do so, for the most part, against the teams they are currently battling with in the standings. It’s a new year for the Pups and they need to find a way to get back in the win column. Start this year fresh. Put the past behind them and really start building towards the playoffs. – Advertisement – It starts tomorrow night against Dawson Creek at the NPA at 8pm. A nice big loud crowd would certainly help. I hope to see you there. I feel like I should create some sore of disclaimer about the lack of postings on this blog. I am sorry. I do intend to blog more but it doesn’t always work out that way. I am back now after the Christmas holiday period so hopefully more blogs will follow. The Huskies are back after the Christmas holidays as well and looking to get back to winning ways. It’s hard to believe that this team has lost 5 in a row. I can’t remember seeing a Huskies team drop that many on the trot. Not since I have been in FSJ anyway. It’s equally hard to believe that a team that was once 9-6 is now 2 games under the .500 mark. But here we are in the second weekend of the new year and the Huskies have a huge 3 days ahead. last_img read more

NBA notes: Davis suspended five games; fan plans to sue

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Knicks forward Antonio Davis was suspended five games by the NBA on Thursday for entering the stands during a game in Chicago to confront a fan he thought was harassing his wife. While the penalty showed the NBA accepted Davis’ argument that he believed his wife was in trouble during Wednesday night’s game, it also made clear that entering the stands would not be tolerated, no matter the circumstances. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Michael Axelrod, the 22-year-old fan that Davis confronted, said he did nothing wrong – and he plans to sue the player and his wife. Axelrod said Kendra Davis tried to scratch him after he protested a call. He said he never laid a hand on her and he was not drunk, as the New York forward contended. “It’s a lie,” Axelrod said. Davis’ suspension was to start with Thursday night’s home game against Detroit, and the players’ union will likely file a grievance. Axelrod’s attorney, Jay Paul Deratany, said he planned to sue Davis and his wife for more than $1 million. Deratany said he was writing the papers Thursday for a battery suit against Kendra Davis and a slander case against Antonio Davis, and planned to file them today. Also: Clippers center Zeljko Rebraca was cleared Thursday to return to action after missing 24 games because of an irregular heartbeat. … Charlotte Bobcats forward Sean May had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, likely bringing his rookie season to an end. … Golden State guard Baron Davis (UCLA) was suspended for one game without pay by the NBA for hitting Seattle’s Luke Ridnour in the chest during a game Monday. … Chicago general manager John Paxson was fined $15,000 by the NBA for verbally abusing referees after a loss to Denver. center_img “At the end of the day, what we had to decide on was the issue of Antonio breaking the barrier from the court into the stands,” NBA vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson said during a conference call. “At the end of the day, that was the most important aspect of making that decision.” The trouble for Davis and his wife, however, might not be over. last_img read more

2 murders bring two life terms

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsCampos was already in prison for drugs and weapons offenses when he was charged in the killings. A Los Angeles Superior Court jury deliberated about two days before deciding last month that Hogan and Campos were guilty of murder and attempted murder. Jurors also convicted Hogan of felony evasion of arrest and Campos of being a felon with a firearm. Jurors also found that this was a double murder and a drive-by shooting – special circumstances that made the defendants eligible for the death penalty or life in prison without parole. Prosecutors decided not to seek the death penalty. The victims’ Ford Taurus sedan was making a turn at the intersection Aug. 6, 2003, when a second car pulled alongside and at least one person inside began shooting. Hogan, a Palmdale construction worker, was chased down and arrested nine days after the slayings. He fled from sheriff’s deputies first in a vehicle on city streets, then on foot in backyards. Hogan has a prison record dating back to 1991 for crimes involving drugs, vehicle theft and possession of stolen property. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com LANCASTER – A state prison inmate convicted of murdering two Antelope Valley men in a 2003 car-to-car shooting was sentenced Friday to two consecutive sentences of life in prison without the possibility of parole. Robert Campos, 25, was one of two men convicted of killing Richard David House of California City and James MacArthur Madden of Lancaster, both 27, and of wounding a woman who was riding in their car at Avenue J-8 and 12th Street West. Prosecutors and family members said the killing might have been drug-related. The sentencing of co-defendant William Hogan, 39, was postponed Friday because his attorney was engaged in a trial, court officials said.
