Former Brisbane Lions forward Josh Green is seeking an off market sale for his Morningside home.“The Brisbane (market) has tracked pretty well lately, so I’d thought I’d try sell off market,” he said. “I’m in no rush really — I thought I’d see if I could get a few offers in.” Green said he loved the Queenslander style of the home and the Morningside location, close to cafes, shops and schools. “It was the ideal location for me at the time and the house itself was beautiful with a new kitchen,” he said.

Pic Peter WallisFORMER Brisbane Lions player Josh Green is seeking an off market sale for his Morningside home. The forward bought the two-storey character property in August 2015 and is looking to sell to buy in Melbourne. The home features three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, along with a kitchen and an open-plan living and dining room, which flows out to the deck. Downstairs there are two multipurpose rooms, one with built-in storage, as well as a laundry, second bathroom and patio.Green said his favourite part of the home was the big deck that looked out over the treetops.“You get the sun sets from the deck … and it overlooks the backyard and lawn, where there is plenty of room for kids to run around,” he said. Green had plans to add a pool to the backyard and renovate the main bathroom but a move to Essendon Football Club in 2016 got in the way. “I did a bit of work here and there, nothing major just bits and pieces to make the house a bit better,” he said. “I put in a new fence on the side, took down a big tree at the front, and did some work to the bathroom.”Green said the property would make a great family home or investment. The home is currently for sale off market through Shannon Harvey of Place Bulimba.

The 37-year-old former Bayern Munich and France winger posted a long message on social media alongside a video showing his house ransacked with drawers and clothes on the floor of one of the bedrooms. In his message, Ribery, who joined Fiorentina last summer after leaving Munich, where his wife and their five children were staying at the weekend, explained his distress. “What shocks me the most is the impression to be naked, to have my trousers down and that I can’t let go,” he said on Instagram. “I can’t accept it. Thank God, my wife and my children were safe in Munich but how can I have trust now? How can I/we feel good here after this? “I don’t run after the millions, thank God, we don’t need anything. However, I still run after the football because it is my passion. But passion or not, my family is first and we will take the necessary decisions for our well-being,” he added.Advertisement Some expensive designer bags and some jewellery as well as some cash were stolen in the raid, Ribery said. Ribery’s wife, Wahiba Ribery, posted her thoughts on social media, saying that she was fearful following the break in. “If you knew how much I love Florence, this city which welcomed us so warmly. I love all the persons we met since we arrived here. But I am hurt as a woman, as a wife and as a mother,” she wrote.

In contrast the Hammers were limp going forward and it was easy to see why Bilic’s side had failed to score in their previous three matches. Mauro Zarate had seen an early drive turned wide by Brad Guzan but it remained their sole chance as they continued to waste openings. The Hammers were dangerous on the break but continued to falter in the final third with Enner Valencia and Michail Antonio guilty. Antonio blazed over two minutes before the break but the Hammers did strike in first-half stoppage time to stun the hosts. First, Valencia was given time on the edge of the box and, although he scuffed his shot, Cheikhou Kouyate deflected it onto the top of the bar. It was a let-off for Villa but one they failed to heed when, a minute later, Cresswell was given time and space to unleash a rasping 20-yard drive which flew low past Guzan. But Villa should have levelled four minutes after the break when Gestede planted a header over from seven yards. He was then denied by Adrian, who had already saved well from Veretout, on 58 minutes as Villa pressed. The keeper was finally beaten in the 62nd minute, though, after the hosts deservedly levelled. Gestede managed to wriggle ahead of Angelo Ogbonna in a sprint to the ball and the West Ham man dragged him down inside the box. Ayew sent Adrian the wrong way from the spot to breathe life into Villa Park. Desperately searching for their first win since the opening day Villa continued to boss the game with the Hammers soaking up the pressure. And the hosts came close to a winner with 15 minutes left when James Collins nodded Alan Hutton’s header off the line. But Guzan had to ensure a point at the death when he turned Valencia’s deflected free kick wide. TWEET OF THE MATCH @karren_brady: ” At Aston villa…never seen a home team get SO excited about winning a corner before!!” – Karren Brady makes friends on her return to the midlands. https://twitter.com/karren_brady/status/680768220735868928 PLAYER RATINGS ASTON VILLA Brad Guzan: 6 Alan Hutton: 6 Joleon Lescott: 6 Jores Okore: 6 Leandro Bacuna: 6 Ashley Westwood: 6 Carlos Sanchez: 6 Idrissa Gana: 6 Jordan Veretout: 6 Jordan Ayew: 7 Rudy Gestede: 6 Substitutes: Carles Gil: 6 Adama Traore: 6 WEST HAM Adrian: 7 James Tomkins: 7 James Collins: 7 Angelo Ogbonna: 6 Aaron Cresswell: 7 Pedro Obaing: 7 Mark Noble: 6 Cheikhou Kouyate: 6 Michail Antonio: 6 Enner Valencia: 6 Mauro Zarate: 6 Substitutes: Carl Jenkinson: 6 Alex Song: 6 Reece Oxford: 6 STAR MAN Jordan Ayew. The striker has been Villa’s best hope since boss Remi Garde took charge in November and underlined his importance again. His cool penalty gave the hosts a lifeline in the second half but they could not build on the goal and had to settle for a point. The former Lorient man has scored three goals in his last five games to at least give Villa some Christmas cheer and they will need him to maintain his form to survive. MOMENT OF THE MATCH West Ham had rarely looked like opening the scoring in the first half before Aaron Cresswell’s rocket. The left back ended the Hammers’ 388-minute goal drought in style to give them the lead at the break. Cresswell was left unattended on the left when he advanced onto the ball and did not hesitate to fire a low blast across Brad Guzan. His moment of quality was out of keeping with a scrappy game. MOAN OF THE MATCH Apart from Cresswell’s bolt from the blue West Ham rarely looked like scoring which will be a concern to Slaven Bilic. With the pace of Enner Valenica and Michail Antonio at their disposal the Hammers should have stretched Villa but never used their weapons properly. Too many times they broke and then ran into dead ends without hurting the hosts and showed exactly why they had struggled to goals before their trip to Villa Park. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Remi Garde will be delighted with Villa’s efforts but he will know they need more than just draws to survive. Villa go to fellow strugglers Norwich on Monday needing to win as defeat would leave them 12 points behind the Canaries. Bilic’s side were unimpressive and look set for a mid-table finish this season as they struggled to consistently threaten a side who are winless in the league since the opening day. The boss must improve them if he is going to lead them to the Olympic Stadium on a high. WHO’S NEXT Norwich v Aston Villa (Barclays Premier League, Monday, December 28) West Ham v Southampton (Barclays Premier League, Monday, December 28) Villa huffed and puffed without real quality and Rudy Gestede wasted two golden chances while Jordan Veretout was denied by Adrian. A draw means they will have to win half of their remaining 20 games to meet boss Garde’s survival target of 10 victories. They remain bottom and sit nine points from safety while the disappointing Hammers are on course for a season of mediocrity in mid-table. Slaven Bilic’s side are now winless in eight games and they were second best for most of the afternoon and Villa came closet to opening the scoring on 17 minutes. They had already begun to test the visitors problems before Gestede, back for Scott Sinclair, directed Veretout’s brilliant cross wide from eight yards. Villa produced their most consistent half in the league this season and stretched the visitors with some snappy football. Garde’s influence, almost two months after arriving, was evident with the manager trying to grant his players freedom in their dire situation. Adrian saved Leandro Bacuna’s drive and then Gestede’s follow up as Villa pressed without making a dent. Remi Garde is still searching for his first win as Villa boss despite coming from behind to close the gap to safety. Aaron Cresswell ended the Hammers’ goal drought with their first strike in 388 minutes but Ayew’s second-half penalty levelled. Jordan Ayew rescued a point for battling Aston Villa as they were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham. Press Association
ELLSWORTH — Inclement weather throughout the state of Maine has forced the Maine Principals’ Association to extend the 2017 baseball and softball regular seasons by two days.Originally, the last playable date for regular season games was May 31. Under the MPA’s newest decree, teams now have until June 2 to complete their 16-game slates.In the northern and eastern parts of the state, bad weather conditions have led to numerous cancellations and clogged schedules. Deer Isle-Stonington had played just one game prior to May 3 because of rain throughout Hancock County, and in Aroostook County, several teams have yet to play more than twice.The 2017 playoffs are scheduled to begin June 6. The MPA has not announced a potential change to those plans.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text
-former Golf champ says she misses action, competition among club-matesBy Clifton RossLOCAL pro golfer and Dental Surgeon, Dr. Joaan Deo, is taking full advantage of the current lockdown situation, spending time with family and training rigorously, as athletes globally cope with prolonged break due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.With athletes forced into seclusion due to the global stoppage of sports, the local fraternities have also felt the brunt of the ripple effect caused by the outbreak.As such, athletes like Deo, one of Guyana’s most seasoned golfers and a former Guyana Open cup champion, are now forced to sit back and wait for what could be an alternate universe whenever sports resumes fully.Deo, who has been away from the Greens since quarantine began, said in an interview with Chronicle Sports that the abrupt shift from playing golf every weekend, competitively, for a number of years, to just sitting at home waiting for the world to return to normalcy, is quite difficult.“It’s hard cause I started training in morning every week. Because of that, my game was on point and I won a few tournaments before everything was called off and even the games I didn’t win, I was on the winners row”, said Deo.Although golf is quite different from the other sporting discipline, and golfers can actually play without a caddy and without mass gathering while still having a competitive run, the former champ said she was, nevertheless, grateful for the time off.“When I return to competitive golf, I really don’t want to be rusty. By having regular swing motions at home, I can maintain my swing, with respect to flow and timing.” She outlined.One of the main challenges thus far, not just locally but globally, is the strict lockdown on gyms. The move meant athletes and normal gym ‘rats’ had no option but to work out at home.The Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) Vice-Captain pointed out that her home-workout regimes have been going well. I have been keeping fit by doing some cardio and working on my timing along with the rhythm in my swing “.However, some of the downsides, according to the golfer, are the very things the current lockdown rules represent.“I miss hanging and fraternising with my clubmates or just going places in general; now it’s different but it’s good in a way”.Wrapping up her interview, the local pro said she thinks that in the future while some persons might readjust to normal living, athletes, in particular, might be a bit skeptical on how they interact with the world again.“Hopefully, we get decreased numbers of confirmed cases of COVID-19 and we can then readjust. But I think some persons, especially athletes, might be a bit skeptical on how they interact with the world again” Deo ended.
Comments Syracuse has benefited from its extra time at home during its current five-game homestand. But with two games left in the lengthy stretch at Tennity Ice Pavilion, the Orange still has to be mindful of one thing.Don’t get distracted.‘Once we open those doors, it’s all about hockey,’ freshman defender Allie LaCombe said. ‘At that point it doesn’t matter who is watching, you just have to shut it down and play.’Syracuse (3-6, 0-0 College Hockey America) snapped a four-game losing streak, scoring five goals in the third period of a remarkable 5-3 comeback win against Union last Saturday. Now, SU will try to keep its focus during the long stretch at home heading into the weekend when it faces off against Connecticut (1-5-2, 1-1 Hockey East) at 7 p.m. Friday night in Tennity.The homestand began dismally for the Orange back on Oct. 19, when it showed little emotion against Colgate in a 3-1 defeat that head coach Paul Flanagan said was the worst game he ever coached. But the team rebounded and dismissed its woes on home ice by staging a comeback against Union. SU even overcame the loss of sophomore defender Akane Hosoyamada, who broke her leg in the second period.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘After the second period, we were all like, ‘Oh my God, did that just happen?” freshman forward Casey Hirsch said. ‘One of the biggest things was not getting down on ourselves after something like that.’Now, Hirsch, LaCombe and the rest of the Orange will take advantage of every minute spent at home this week in preparation for its two-game set against Connecticut.And that means plenty of rest.In between team practices and scheduled classes, Hirsch said players are managing their time wisely. Sleeping well and maintaining a healthy diet are among their top priorities when they step off the ice.SU’s extended stay at home has also allowed for more instructional time. LaCombe said coaches make players run circuits every Monday and Wednesday during practice, and they also hold after-practice skating sessions to help keep players sharp in between games.Senior forward Megan Skelly said not having to travel keeps the team well rested.‘We’re not used to playing three games in a week, so our legs get a little more tired,’ Skelly said regarding SU’s three home games last week. ‘We don’t have to travel, so we can take this whole week to prepare, so come Friday night we’re 100 percent.’It is always tough on the body to travel, Flanagan said. Not to mention that players are more comfortable skating on home ice than on the road, where they are forced to adjust to their surroundings, including the temperature of the rink.The support from the crowd amplifies the players’ energy and provides good vibes, junior forward Holly Carrie-Mattimoe said on Oct. 18.But Flanagan also understands the importance of not getting too relaxed at home, especially with the increased number of family and friends who come to visit players on weekends. He doesn’t want his team to get distracted and lose sight of the obstacles that lay ahead, which includes playing consistent hockey for all 60 minutes against Connecticut.Flanagan said he tells his players to plan ahead of time if they have family or friends visiting for the weekend to eliminate distractions.‘As long as the team manages friends and family being in town and the balancing act of being to as many classes as possible, they’ll be fine,’ Flanagan said a day before the team’s first game of the homestand Oct. 18.SU, which finished with a mediocre 9-8-3 record at home in 2010-11, will try to repeat its performance against the Huskies from last season when it destroyed UConn 7-1 at Tennity. The homestand has given the team extra time for practice and rest, keeping them focused and limiting distractions.‘When we show up at the rink, it’s hockey,’ Hirsch said. ‘Our phones are off two hours before the game, even at team meals. Everyone is in the zone. We’re pretty good at not getting distracted.’email@example.com Published on October 25, 2011 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+
The real question to ask is: Does being drafted to the NHL affect how college kids play? Originally, I thought the answer was yes, without a doubt. I assumed that it would give them comfort to be able to relax knowing they have already been drafted. I found this to be completely backwards.UW sophomore Trent Frederic put it best saying “his approach wouldn’t be much different had he not been drafted.” College hockey was always his plan and being drafted has not changed his work ethic, which makes since.Frederic was a first round draft pick and stood out while on the U.S. National Development Team where it is likely he continued to learn what it takes to be a top player in the game. Being a first round draft pick, it is obvious he has an incredible work ethic and is often times the last guy off the ice after practice.My assumption was that he would be able to relax a little bit now that he had been drafted, but in all reality he is just trying to close the gap between college play and NHL play in the little time he has at UW. This requires he continues to work as hard and probably even harder than when he was in juniors.Another interesting perspective that debunked my initial thought to the question came from seventh round draft pick UW freshman Linus Weissbach who said “the draft is just a day and college is a way to keep getting better.” It is obvious from Weissbach’s opinion that being drafted isn’t going to change how he approaches college hockey.Weissbach is a level-headed freshman who knows there is an incredible amount of talent in the college hockey world, and has immense appreciation for where he is. That being said, just like all guys at this level, he wants to work as hard as he can to continue his hockey growth and sees college as a way to do that.Men’s Hockey: Granato offered head coach position with USA Olympic teamLess than two months after his brother, Don Granato, announced he would be taking a coaching position with the Chicago Read…Like Frederic, Weissbach wants to use college to start to close the gap between college and NHL players. The greatest difference he sees is “the attention to detail NHL players possess,” which is much greater than college players. College hockey allows him to gain a greater ability to pay attention to those fine details.It became obvious to me very quickly that it did not matter if a player was drafted or not they all have the same goals in mind — National Championships and hopefully a shot at an NHL roster spot in the future. While everyone’s approach is different, all approaches have the same starting points: Hard work, dedication, attention to detail and at least two years at UW. The world of college hockey is truly unique in the sense that many freshman begin their collegiate careers knowing whether or not they will have a professional year after their time spent at their chosen institution.This is a tough question to answer because there isn’t another sport like hockey in this sense. When a football or basketball player decide to enter the draft, they have decided they are done playing at the college level and are ready to play in the big leagues.College sports and the NCAA are one of the largest entertainment entities in the United States. As they continue to grow so do the controversies they face, like player compensation, eligibility rules and injury protocol. One controversy that often gets overlooked and swept under the rug plagues our beloved sport of hockey, especially at the University of Wisconsin.How will the Olympics impact men’s and women’s hockey this year?With the 2018 winter Olympic games underway, many are wondering how University of Wisconsin hockey is going to be impacted. Read…Hockey is a different giant — it is a sport that has a 20-man rosters, 83 game regular seasons and is the only sport played on a 2.9 milimeter metal blade. Hockey also operates under a completely different sent of rules and expectations than any other collegiate sport.In hockey, most of the time kids are not being recruited to play right out of high school — they are being recruited from a high caliber list of kids that play in an exclusive “juniors” league, often the USHL or OHL. The junior hockey process eliminates the daunting task of college recruiters going to hundreds of high schools to find the top talent because ultimately, it reigns in a few different junior leagues.With this being said, it also makes it easy for NHL scouts to have access to the best players in the world as well. This, however, does not answer either of the questions asked, but it does help give a better understanding to the answer I am about to give, which is yes, they should be allowed to be drafted in and or before college.Hockey players around the world are often being drafted into the NHL between their 18th and 19th birthdays, and are no longer draft eligible after their 21st birthday. Canadian, Swiss and Finnish players are often going right from junior hockey leagues into professional hockey, while American born players are typically required to play in the NCAA no matter how early a round they get drafted in.Due to this, I believe restricting them from being drafted at an earlier age would restrict their ability to be drafted as freely as players from other countries. Some of the best talent in hockey today is American born, with one example being Joe Pavelski of the San Jose Sharks, who is also a former Badger.Restricting American college players from being drafted into the NHL until they are ready to leave college prevents them from making the best decision for their career. Not allowing them to be drafted could scare them into a full four years of college hockey, and we all know that you don’t get younger.The issue with this is that while their Canadian counterparts continue to get better, the first round draft picks stay stagnant and aren’t playing at the same level when they turn 21 or 22 as their colleague from a different county who now has an extra four years of NHL maturity on them.Granato to depart UW hockey program for coaching position with Chicago BlackhawksOnly a year after the University of Wisconsin’s men hockey program acquired Don Granato, the former associate head coach announced Read…
