Gushue sounds off about curling podcast

But of course, the more people know about the developments, the greater the chances the news will come out.

“Busy times in the curling world, me personally (I) like to hear the announcements from the teams rather than from podcasts and blogs, lot of trust and time goes into these decisions, let the teams spill the news,” tweeted Viktor Kjell, who coached the Jennifer Jones team at the Games.

Team Gushue will represent Canada at the April 2-10 world championship in Las Vegas before closing out the campaign with two Grand Slam appearances later in the spring.

Reports and podcasts on player plans and future lineups – an annual norm in other sports but a once-a-quadrennial experience in curling – served as a jolt for many in the sport perhaps not used to the free-agent frenzy periods that are common elsewhere.

“When news breaks and it’s labelled as official when we haven’t done it, I just think it’s inconsiderate and inappropriate,” Gushue said. “But that’s the world we seem to be living in (where people are) looking for likes and retweets.”

Sourced reporting is nothing new on the sports scene. Sportswriters, broadcasters and television insiders break news all the time before official team announcements are made.

In a text message, Hansen said Martin would be available to speak on the matter later Sunday. When reached in the afternoon, Martin said the comment had no negative intent and they will try to repair things by addressing the subject on their next episode.

Martin added that he had a long conversation with Gushue earlier in the day and they have sorted things out.

Gushue, vice Mark Nichols and lead Geoff Walker said in their statement that the selection process for a new teammate was ongoing and an announcement was expected in the coming weeks.

Martin said Team Gushue was trying to pick up Harnden at second but the federation’s residency rule limiting teams to one import player was an issue.

“Brad, I think now, is trying to convince Curling Canada to adjust the rule to do something for them on their behalf,” Hansen said on the podcast. “But to some degree, it’s a problem.”metasports

Gushue, who won Olympic bronze and a Brier title this season, did a series of media interviews after the team confirmed Gallant would be leaving the team at the end of the season.

In a phone interview with The Canadian Press, Gushue detailed his interaction with the federation.

College football’s highest-paid coaches ahead of 2022 season

The latest: Ryan Day’s salary at Ohio State jumps to $7.6 million in 2022 as a part of an extension agreement signed ahead of the 2020 season after he was named Big Ten Coach of the Year for his early success in the post-Urban Meyer era for the Buckeyes. The new deal for Day is supposed to keep him in Columbus through at least through the 2026 football season. Day and the Buckeyes were scheduled to appear in the Big Ten Championship Game last season, with another College Football Playoff opportunity on the horizon, with a win at Michigan, but it didn’t happen after Ohio State’s lengthy winning streak over its archrival came to an end. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said in February he hasn’t spoken with Day about his contract in some time.

“I don’t feel an urgency, no. I feel like we need to do it the right way with he and his family and with the university president and board of trustees, and we’ll get to that,” Smith said. “But historically, you guys have watched, I have always tried to make sure that we compensate consistent with expectations and performance. But I don’t feel a sense of urgency.”

Based on expected salary figures and reported contract numbers for several first-year arrivals, here’s who we expect to be the nation’s 10 highest-paid head coaches during the 2022 season.metasports

College football’s highest-paid coaches ahead of the 2022 season is a who’s who list of former national champions and those knocking on the door of their first, including several assuming new roles as first-year leaders of storied programs. USC landing Lincoln Riley and Brian Kelly’s move to LSU resulted in huge, long-term contracts for the high-profile pair coaches, not to mention notable extensions for Mel Tucker and James Franklin within the Big Ten, among others.

Here’s how we grade the Deshaun Watson blockbuster between Houston and Cleveland

With Houston in a full rebuild, getting as many cracks as possible in the first round is vital to turning the franchise around in relatively short order. Having so many firsts also gives them the flexibility to move freely around the draft board if they identify a replacement for Watson in the future if 2021 third-rounder Davis Mills proves not to be the answer under center.

Of course, the only way this trade is truly a good move by the Texans is if they actually hit on the majority of these picks, which we won’t know for about another decade. Strictly in regards to the haul of picks, however, you can’t find many returns like this in league history. 

The Browns get a clear upgrade at quarterback by slotting in Watson over Baker Mayfield, but this move does come with risks. The most immediate is Watson’s off-the-field issues with his outstanding civil lawsuits by 22 different women who allege sexual misconduct or assault. The NFL is still investigating Watson regarding this situation and, when you look at how his new contract is structured, it appears like he is bracing for some type of suspension. Naturally, that’ll hurt Cleveland’s chances to contend out of the gate in 2022 if Watson misses considerable time. Second, the price tag to acquire him is considerable. While the Los Angeles Rams and their mint Lombardi Trophy are proof that draft picks can successfully be thrown to the wayside in pursuit of a title, mortgaging the future for nearly a half-decade of first-round picks will require success quickly. metasports

After Watson announced where he wanted to go, the Texans and Browns took it the rest of the way to complete the deal that is one of the biggest in league history. Houston sent Watson and a 2024 fifth-round pick to the Browns in exchange for first-round picks in 2022, 2023, and 2024 along with a 2023 third-rounder and a 2024 fourth-round selection. Cleveland also inked Watson to a new five-year, $230 million deal that is fully guaranteed.

No. 1 seed Baylor and No. 3 seed Tennessee both took early exits in Saturday’s action

Tennessee forward John Fulkerson (10) and Tennessee guard Kennedy Chandler (1) react after losing to Michigan in the NCAA Tournament second round game at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind., on Saturday, March 19, 2022.
Kns Ncaa Vols Michigan Bp

No. 1 seed Baylor overcame an incredible 25-point (!) deficit against North Carolina in the second round and pushed the Tar Heels to overtime. But, in the end, the reigning champion Bears didn’t have the horses. It was an unfortunate turn of events for Baylor that led to an early exit from this year’s NCAA Tournament. Injuries to leading scorer LJ Cryer and Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua, both of whom missed the game, proved costly while UNC hit its peak. 

The No. 15 seed Peacocks of Saint Peter’s are headed to the Sweet 16, where they will face the winner of Sunday’s game between No. 3 seed Purdue and No. 6 seed Texas in the East Region semifinals. Defensive star KC Ndefo led Saint Peter’s with 17 points, 10 rebounds and 6 blocks in the win over Murray State, and Doug Edert added 13 points after pouring in 20 vs. Kentucky earlier in the week. The Peacocks are just the third No. 15 seed to make the Sweet 16, joining Florida Gulf Coast (2013) and Oral Roberts (2021). 

For a second consecutive game in the tournament, No. 1 overall seed Gonzaga came out flat. Yet, for a second consecutive game, the Zags finished with a flurry.

The Bulldogs trailed by as many as 12 points in the second half and dug themselves out of the hole and then some in an impressive  82-78 come-from-behind win. Led by big man Drew Timme’s 25 points and 14 rebounds along with Andrew Nembhard’s 23 points, they outclassed a Memphis team that was physical early on by banging it down low with Timme — who had 21 of his 25 in the second half and apparently delivered a fiery halftime locker room speech that motivated the team.

“I said I don’t give a flying F what happens at the end of the game, whether we lose or win, but we’re not going out as soft guys,” said Timme on TBS postgame. “I said ‘Hey man, if you go all out and we still lose, play with no regrets.’ We took that to heart and came out with the win fortunately.” 

All the drama that we love about March Madness was in abundance during Saturday’s second-round action. Frenetic finishes, upsets and legendary performances were on display as March Madness continued on.metasports

One of the day’s top surprises came early in the slate with No. 8 seed North Carolina smacking No. 1 seed Baylor early — then Baylor punching back — in a stunning OT game the Tar Heels eventually won. The reigning-champion Bears trailed by as many as 25 points before forcing an extra period behind a furious comeback. UNC pulled away in the extra frame to win 93-86.

Maple Leafs send D Dermott to Canucks

On the other hand, skipper Stefanie Taylor also weighed in her thoughts on the same and said, “Able and the medical personnel taking care of her, hopefully, she will pull through. It was sad to see her go down. But we need to look at the bright side, it was time for us to regroup, we came back and changed the momentum.”. Connell bowled three over in the match before the health scare as West Indies jumped to third in the standings, courtesy of the win. West Indies face Pakistan in their next game on Monday and there is no update so far if Connell will be a part of the rest of the tournament.

On the match front, Bangladesh scored three runs off the 48th over, two runs off the 49th over, and lost their final wicket in the third ball of the 50th over to end up on the losing side. Hayley Matthews was awarded the man of the match for her bowling effort of 4/15 and speaking in the post-match presentation, she expressed concerns about Connell’s well-being. As per ESPN Cricinfo, Hayley said, “Bit worrying seeing her going down like that. She is a fighter, not sure what is wrong with her but hopefully she is alright. “.

Medical staff rushed into the ground after she collapsed and the match was halted for quite a while, as her team-mates worried about her health. The match was on a knife’s edge while the incident took place, as Bangladesh needed 13 runs to win the match off 19 balls with only one wicket in hand. Meanwhile, she got up on her feet after receiving medical attention and then went inside the mini-ambulance cum car. The broadcaster spotted her holding her stomach before she went inside the ambulance, while the Windies women got into a huddle before play was resumed. metasports

West Indies women cricketer Shamilla Connell, who collapsed during the ICC Women’s World Cup match between West Indies and Bangladesh on Friday, has now been discharged from the hospital. The 29-year-old pacer was taken to the hospital after the incident and was later discharged from the hospital, upon returning with clear test results. The incident occurred mid-way during match no. 17 of the ongoing tournament, while she was fielding at midwicket during Bangladesh’s chase of 141 runs.

“Rishabh’s captain, so he’s going to do that anyway, but guys like Prithvi, Axar and Nortje will also have their roles and responsibilities within the team,” he added.

Ponting was impressed with the energetic vibe around the group of players when he attended his first training session with the team.

“At the moment, we need to really focus on what we need to do to get ready for game one. I had a great first session with the players. There’s an energetic vibe around the team, which is what we always strive for,” Ponting said.

Having bought a lot of new faces at the IPL mega auction this year, Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting stressed that the players who have been retained by the franchise now have a responsibility to guide the youngsters in the team.

The Capitals had retained four players — skipper Rishabh Pant, opener Prithiv Shaw, spin all-rounder Axar Patel and South Africa pacer Anrich Nortje — ahead of the auction and the coach is trying his best to get to know the rest of the squad ahead of the league which begins on March 26.

Elderly man killed as two groups clash over playing cricket match; 7 held

Yuvraj Singh was adjourned Man of the Tournament in this World for all-round efforts, and a few weeks after the celebration of the triumph the cricket fans wept their tears as the Prince of India was diagnosed with cancer, but thanks to fighting ever-fighting spirit he defeated the deadly disease and came back to the 22 yards. The place where he deserves to be!

Yuvraj Singh was adjudged Man of The Match in this game for his all-round efforts in spite of keeping unwell and vomiting blood consisting of a classic century with a help of 10 boundaries and 2 sixes and 2 important wickets for eighteen runs in his four overs.

The West Indies were high on confidence as they had restricted India from playing full 50 overs, but the Caribbean seemed unaware of the class of Indian bowling. Indian team comfortably won the match with 80 runs bowling out West Indies for a total of 188.

Indian Captain MS Dhoni won the toss in Chennai and asked the Indian openers to pad up against the dark horses of the tournament West Indies. Regular opener Virendra Sehwag missed the last league owing to an injury hence the left-handed Gambhir was asked to open with Sachin Tendulkar.  Openers could not stand long as Sachin walked off accepting he has edged Rampaul’s ball even though the umpire did not hear the nick on the last ball of the first over, Gambhir too departed in the 8th over as India stood 51-2. 

The responsibility was on the young shoulders of Kohli and star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh. Both the players helped India fightback more than 100 run partnerships for the 4th wicket. The cricket fraternity was in complete shock seeing Yuvraj Singh bleed during this very innings, but did the prince give up? NO! he fought scored a fantabulous century but little did he know he was fighting a cancerous tumour growing in his lungs.  Coming back to the Indian inning, India collapsed at 269 after Yuvraj Singh departed in the 45th over.

At what price? Deshaun Watson trade might cost Cleveland Browns more than money, draft picks

In 2021, the Browns signed defensive tackle Malik McDowell, a second-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2017. In 2019, McDowell was charged in Michigan with driving while impaired, obstructing justice and assaulting a police officer. Video showed McDowell fighting with police even after they stunned him with a Taser following a DUI stop. Two months later, he was found in possession of a stolen truck, leading to another charge of receiving and concealing stolen property. He was sentenced to 11 months in jail and three years’ probation after pleading guilty to the series of crimes.

McDowell won a starting job on the Browns out of training camp and emerged into a stalwart on the Cleveland defensive line. But in January, he was arrested on charges of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and public exposure in Florida. McDowell is unlikely to return to the Browns this season.

As far as Watson is concerned, the Browns must have believed the risk was worth it. The team has not publicly talked about the trade.

If Watson is disciplined, though, it won’t cost him much financially. ESPN confirmed Watson’s new $230 million contract with Cleveland will include only $1 million in base salary for the first year. In other words, if Watson is suspended, he would lose less than $60,000 per game lost.

That the Browns even agreed to a contract structure explicitly intended to circumvent NFL enforcement only underscored their desperation further.

The public relations damage is already done. The Browns not only signed Watson despite his ongoing legal issues, but they gave him a raise. It’s sure to be a polarizing decision among their fan base with risk to the image and reputation of the Browns, including owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam, general manager Andrew Berry and coach Kevin Stefanski.metasports

On the field, the Browns have forfeited much of their ability to upgrade their roster with high-end talent in the draft going forward after trading their first-round picks in 2022, 2023 and 2024, as well as a 2023 third-round pick and a 2024 fourth-round pick. The Browns did receive a 2024 fifth-round pick in return. The loss of picks especially stings considering how well Berry has drafted in two years as Cleveland’s general manager.

Top NFL free agents for 2022: Ranking the best 100 players available on the market this offseason

We don’t include restricted or exclusive free agents, for whom the original teams have the right of first refusal. And as always, our ranking is skewed toward players coming off their first contracts — at the free-agent sweet spot of about 26 years old — and considers that some positions are much more valued on the open market than others. Pass-rushers and quarterbacks are more sought after on the market than running backs and off-ball linebackers, at least for most teams, and we’ve tried to keep that in mind in establishing the rankings.

We don’t tend to include many 31-year-olds in these free-agent rankings, especially ones who missed more than half of the previous season and are planning to undergo offseason knee surgery. But if even a serviceable left tackle is available — and Armstead is well above that baseline when healthy — he will be heavily pursued.

You’re not going to find many (soon-to-be) 33-year-olds on a list of top NFL free agents, and Miller’s age is a big reason the Broncos decided to trade him at midseason. But he went on to have the kind of impact teams would hope to receive from a veteran situational pass-rusher, with five sacks in 414 snaps, and ranked No. 12 in ESPN’s pass rush win rate metric (20.9%) over eight games.

Mathieu has been named to the Pro Bowl in all three of his seasons with the Chiefs and was named an All-Pro as recently as 2020. He has played out his $42 million deal and is young enough to get another payday, even if his best years are behind him. His 13 interceptions over those three years are tied for the fifth most in the NFL over that period.

After two years on the franchise tag, earning $33 million over that period, Scherff figures to get some kind of longer-term resolution this spring. He was an All-Pro in 2020 and earned his fifth Pro Bowl invitation this season, but he has always had trouble staying on the field. Scherff missed six games in 2021 and hasn’t played a full season since 2016.

NFL free agency 2022: Ranking the best remaining free agents still available on the market

As always, our ranking is skewed toward players coming off their first contracts — at the free-agent sweet spot of about 26 years old — and takes into consideration that some positions are much more valued on the open market than others. Pass-rushers and quarterbacks are more sought after on the market than running backs and off-ball linebackers, at least for most teams, and we’ve tried to keep that in mind in establishing the rankings.

Let’s jump in, with the best available players still unsigned. Who’s next to join a new team?

We don’t tend to include many 31-year-olds in free-agent rankings, especially ones who missed more than half of the previous season and are planning to undergo offseason knee surgery. But if even a serviceable left tackle is available — and Armstead is well above that baseline when healthy — he will be heavily pursued.

An annual addition to this list, Clowney has changed teams three times in the past three seasons. His nine-sack performance for the Browns in 2021 was his best since 2018 and ensured that he will be in demand this spring, as well. Going year to year in the NFL isn’t for everyone, but Clowney has earned nearly $36 million in his path from Houston to Seattle to Tennessee to Cleveland — with more to come.

Brown hit a huge payday during his 2019 entry into free agency, signing a four-year, $66 million deal with the Raiders, but he made it only two years before being traded back to the Patriots. He managed to play nine games this season, and prospective suitors will have to assess why he has changed teams three times in seven years, but a veteran tackle of most any background is going to be sought after on the open market.
