FedEx, the title sponsor of the Washington Redskins’ stadium wants the NFL team to change its name.In a statement Thursday, FedEx said: “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name.“The company paid the team $205 million in 1999 for the naming rights to FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.The Washington Redskins said that they are undertaking a “thorough review” of their team name after sponsors cut ties with them, and fans put pressure to rename the team because the name is commonly seen as a racial slur.

For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: For the first time in a decade, Pakistan will finally be hosting Test matches in the country after Sri Lanka agreed to play a series in Pakistan which is part of the ICC World Test Championships. Sri Lanka agreed to a two-match series in Decemberand this comes after they played a bilateral ODI and T20 International series in the country in September-October earlier this year despite 10 of its top players, including ODI captain Dimuth Karunaratne and Twenty20 skipper Lasith Malinga, opting out due to security concerns. The upcoming series’ first Test will be played in Rawalpindi from December 11-15, while the second Test will be held in Karachi from December 19-23.”This is a fabulous news for Pakistan cricket and its reputation of being as safe and secure as any other country in the world. We are thankful to Sri Lanka Cricket for agreeing to send their team for the longer version of the game. Now that the itinerary has been confirmed, we will shift our focus on series preparations to ensure we deliver arrangements as per our very high standards,” PCB Director (International Cricket) Zakir Khan said in a statement. Sri Lanka were originally scheduled to play Tests in October and then return in December for a limited-overs’ series but the matches were swapped to “provide them the opportunity to assess the situation before deciding on the Test venues”.Sri Lanka Cricket chief executive Ashley de Silva said based on an earlier visit, the SLC is comfortable and convinced that conditions are suitable and conducive for Test cricket. “We also believe all cricket playing countries should host international cricket at home and in this relation we are happy to play our part in complete resumption of international cricket in Pakistan,” he said.Teams like Australia, England and New Zealand have not toured the country for a very long time. In the wake of the deteriorating security situation, England have not gone to Pakistan since 2005 while Australia’s last tour was in 1998. New Zealand had travelled to Pakistan in 2002 for a Test series but a terror attack in Karachi saw their tour being cancelled and their last tour was in 2004. International cricket stopped coming to Pakistan following the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore in March 1, 2009. Many Sri Lankan players were hurt and for six years, Pakistan were forced to play their ‘home’ games in the UAE.Also Read | Pakistan Cricket Board Invites South Africa, Ireland For Limited Overs Games In CountryZimbabwe became the first team to tour Pakistan in 2015 for three ODIs. This was followed by tours by teams like ICC World XI, West Indies, Sri Lanka and the successful hosting of the Pakistan Super League Twenty20. Sri Lanka last played a Test in Pakistan in 2009 on that ill-fated tour while Bangladesh have not played a Test in Pakistan since 2003, which has been their only tour of the country in their cricketing history.
There may not be a substitute for experience, but the Wisconsin men’s golf team hopes there is something close as the Badgers head into the Big Ten Tournament this weekend.Losing four seniors from the previous season, the Badgers have three freshmen playing prominent roles for the team. This is a large task for such young players, especially when you consider the transition from high school to college. Not only do they have to lead their team in one of the nation’s toughest conferences, but they must also balance everything else that comes along with being a student-athlete at a university like UW-Madison.“They do a great job of managing their time between their academics, tournaments, practice, social life and everything else,” head coach Jim Schuman said. “I couldn’t be happier with them.”While experience may be limited for freshman Michael Sorenson, his success is undeniable.As a senior in high school, Sorenson won the 2009 WIAA State Division I Championship and a few months later won the 2009 WSGA State Junior Championship. This kind of success is something he has come to expect.Even after last weekend’s 11th place finish in the Boilermaker Invitational, Sorenson still sees room for improvement.“I don’t feel like I have played to my potential in any tournaments this year,” Sorenson said. “But my game is starting to come around, so I hope to play well this weekend.”It’s something that Sorenson and the rest of the Badgers will have to do if they hope to keep playing. With a first place finish in the Big Ten Championship Tournament, UW has a chance to advance to the NCAA tournament.With so many freshmen, one would think that this could put added pressure on the team. This isn’t something that has coach Schuman too worried.“We don’t go into many tournaments with a mindset other than to win the event,” Schuman said. “That’s the ultimate goal, so that is really nothing new.”However, Schuman does admit that his team, in particular the freshmen, will be facing a challenge they haven’t seen before.“I’m sure they will be quite nervous,” Schuman said. “But it should be a great experience for them.”With so many players on the team experiencing things for the first time, it has made it all the more important for UW’s lone senior, Jordan Elsen, to be a leader.“Jordan’s been a real nice stabilizer for our younger players,” Schuman said. “I am very proud of him.”For Elsen, being a leader is not a responsibility he has been asked to take on before this season. In his previous years, Elsen was considered more inexperienced compared to his teammates. Even in his junior year, he was the only non-senior to play in more than 20 rounds.Becoming the leader he is today was certainly no easy feat.In golf, just like in life, there are turning points that help a player mature. For Elsen, that moment came in the NCAA regionals his sophomore year.“I struggled in the first round and I had to quickly learn how to put the slow start behind me,” Elsen said.Additionally, Elsen attributes much of his success to his past teammates, who like Elsen now, led their respective teams.“Over the course of my four years here at UW, I have been given the privilege to play with some solid players who have taught me a lot,” Elsen said. “The biggest thing I have learned from them is that the game of golf is not about having a perfect swing or hitting the ball perfect every time. It’s about finding a way to get the ball in the hole, even when you’re not playing at your best.”Though having played in the Big Ten Tournament in previous years, Elsen has never played at Windsong Farm Golf Club in Minnesota, the host of the Big Ten Tournament. One thing that may be to Elsen’s advantage is the fact that the course plays very similar to Crooked Stick, where Elsen finished third.“It’s a links-style golf course, which I tend to play really well on,” Elsen said. “The greens are so true, which is an advantage for me since I feel confident in the way I am putting right now.”

“Your lawyers say you are not going to abscond and you are going to respect the conditions of the house arrest. I need to know whether you understand the terms of the bail agreement and personally accept it.”Ronaldinho and his brother both respond “I accept”The Brazilian who was smiling throughout finished with his famous hand celebration before the judge ended the session. “Since then our intention has been to collaborate with the justice system to clarify the facts. From that moment until today, we have explained everything and facilitated everything that has been requested of us”He added that he never imagined he would spend time in jail as the whole of his professional career had been focused on making people happy.“It was a tough blow, I never imagined that I would go through such a situation. All my life I have sought to reach the highest professional level and bring joy to people with my football.”Ronaldinho and his brother, who were released after paying their $1.6 million bail, are staying at the Presidential Hotel Palmaroga in Paraguayan capital Asuncion under house arrest.Ronaldinho reportedly asked the hotel staff for a ball and a room in which he could play football when he arrived.The request was immediately granted by the hotel manager.“Ronaldinho does not lose his temper and he alternates his conversations with jokes,” the manager, Emilio Yegros said. Ronaldinho has spoken about his “difficult” month in a Paraguayan jail after his arrest for alleged passport fraud.According to the former World Player of the Year, he was surprised when he and his brother, who was arrested with him, were told that the passports they entered the country with were fake.“We were totally surprised to learn that the documents were not legal,” he said in his first interview since his arrest. The judge also spelt out the conditions of the house arrest, stating that the pair would have to foot their hotel bills during the period.“I have the assurance of the hotel managers that they, at their own expense, can observe house arrest there,” Judge Amarilla saidRonaldinho logrando salir de la cárcel por Skype, será uno de los eventos más surrealistas que verás en esta pandemia. pic.twitter.com/k4XIIySNAB— José Carlos Crespo (@josecarloscresp) April 9, 2020Ronaldinho and his brother are being investigated for alleged passport fraud. “He seems like a good guy. He never loses his smile, neither does his brother. His countenance changed from the first day, when he arrived tense and stressed.”Yegros said the hotel had given Ronaldinho a “30m X 15-sized hall for his kickabouts.”Ronaldinho’s stay at the hotel under house arrest might be the biggest highlight of his time in the country so far.The suite in the four-star hotel according to media reports comes complete with a four-poster bed, five-star room service, 55 inch TV and whirlpool bath.While a stay in the room is usually quite costly, the hotel has offered discounts due to the coronavirus pandemic with the suite said to cost about £87-per-night now.The ruling to release him which was done via Skype, saw Ronaldinho standing with his brother and his lawyers in prison.The judge, Gustavo Amarilla sought assurances from the former footballer that he will remain under house arrest and not attempt to escape.

Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros The Angels traded 2019 first-round pick Will Wilson and infielder Zack Cozart to the Giants in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named. The real benefit to the Angels is that the Giants are taking on the entire $12.67 million that Cozart is owed in the final year of his disappointing three-year deal.That gives the Angels more payroll space to pursue upgrades, even with Cole no longer on the table.“We are exploring a lot of things in the trade market as well as the free-agent market,” Angels general manager Billy Eppler said after the trade but before the Cole signing. “When you wanna entertain a lot of different permutations, having more resources available is a little bit more fun to play with.”Eppler said the Angels have room to acquire multiple players who each make more than $20 million, although he would not specify beyond that.After moving Cozart, the Angels have around $140 million committed for 2020, and Eppler’s comment would indicate that there is a minimum of $40 million left to spend. Normally the Angels’ budget is around $175 million, but owner Arte Moreno said earlier this offseason the payroll would go up, but he didn’t say how much. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone In order to get the Giants to take Cozart, the Angels traded Wilson, the No. 15 pick in the draft last summer. In his first pro season, the infielder hit .275 with a .768 OPS. He was rated the No. 4 prospect in the system by MLB Pipeline.“It was very difficult,” Eppler said of the decision to move Wilson. “I credit the Giants for being opportunistic. I credit them for that. I was a little surprised more teams didn’t jump in on the opportunity but everybody’s got different circumstances that they operate under.”ALSOThe Angels signed utilityman Arismendy Alcantara to a minor-league deal. The 28-year-old switch-hitter can play the infield and the outfield. He has hit .189 with a .550 OPS in 167 games over parts of four seasons with the Chicago Cubs, Oakland A’s and Cincinnati Reds. He played for Joe Maddon with the Cubs in 2015. …Angels bullpen coach Andrew Bailey will be interviewed for the Giants’ pitching coach position. …A day after Maddon said he is open to having Shohei Ohtani hit on the days that he pitches, Eppler said it’s too early to entertain those kinds of discussions. Ohtani still has two weeks left in his rehab from Tommy John surgery. “Spring training is a good time to talk about those things,” Eppler said. “Let’s not get into it too early. But he’s excited and I like his excitement. I’m excited to hear all his ideas.” SAN DIEGO — Hours before the Angels learned that they had lost in their pursuit of Gerrit Cole, who agreed to a record-shattering deal with the New York Yankees, they created some financial wiggle room for alternate plans.Cole agreed on Tuesday night to a nine-year, $324-million deal with the New York Yankees. It set records for the most years, most total value and largest average annual value for a pitcher.The Orange Lutheran High and UCLA product had been heavily pursued by the pitching-starved Angels, and the Dodgers, but in the end, they could not outbid the Yankees.The Angels are, however, better positioned to upgrade their team without Cole than they were a day earlier, thanks to an extra $12.67 million they netted by essentially selling one of their top prospects to the San Francisco Giants. Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter The Angels also have significant space left before approaching the luxury tax threshold, which is $208 million in 2020. Their luxury tax payroll is currently also around $140 million, although it’s calculated differently than their actual payroll.While much of the talk around the Angels has been about supplementing their pitching staff, they have also been in talks with agent Scott Boras about third baseman Anthony Rendon, according to a source. They also reportedly had talked about another third baseman, Josh Donaldson.Among the remaining pitchers, free agents Madison Bumgarner, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Dallas Keuchel are still available.The Angels also would have the flexibility to make a trade for a high-salaried player. There were rumors connecting them to left-hander David Price, who the Boston Red Sox are trying to move.“I would say there’s more options than just one on the free-agent market,” Eppler said, referring to options beyond Cole. “There are other options on the trade market that are frontline pitchers. When I say frontline, I say No. 1 or 2. … There are some conversations that we’re having out there in the trade market that involve that caliber of player.”Boras, who also represents Ryu and Kuechel, said earlier in the day that the Angels have been going hard after his clients.“I think from the ownership level on, (the Angels) have expressed a desire to improve their team, and to make things better,” Boras said during his traditional Winter Meetings press interview. “I am confident that they are at an aggressive level.”One of the problems the Angels likely faced in courting Cole, and other free agents, is the fact that they have had four consecutive losing seasons, and they certainly appear to be more than one player away from being contenders.Boras said the Angels’ recent struggles were addressed with his clients. The Angels also met with Stephen Strasburg, another Boras client, before he re-signed with the Nationals.“I think the Angels took that head on and addressed it in their meetings, and the players, whenever they consider the status of a franchise and how they evaluate it, they take it under consideration in their decision-making,” Boras said.Eppler has touted the Angels’ plan at every opportunity, saying that they began focusing on rebuilding the farm system a few years ago. As the system has become stronger, they’ve shifted toward a focus on the big league team.On Tuesday, they essentially traded one of their top prospects for someone to impact their major league roster, although they don’t know which player that will be until they settle on a use for that $12.67 million.Cozart’s $38 million deal turned out to be a bust for the Angels, primarily because he required two surgeries on his left shoulder. He was originally hurt diving to make a play in June 2018. He had season-ending surgery and then in 2019 said that his shoulder repair left the joint too tight, and made it difficult for him to swing the bat.He hit .190 in 96 games over the past two seasons. Eppler said recently that Cozart is now fully cleared to hit and he was expected to be fully cleared in spring training.The Angels had no role for him, with David Fletcher, Tommy La Stella and Luís Rengifo available to play second and third.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
The Clippers made 11 of their first 15 shots but didn’t build much of a lead until a 10-0 run in the second quarter made it 42-26 on Paul Pierce’s 3-pointer. They maintained a comfortable cushion that reached 18 and never seemed in danger of losing until the Nets started intentionally fouling Jordan in the fourth quarter as their catalyst for a comeback.Brooklyn got within two points on multiple occasions, but Paul and Griffin had consecutive baskets to make it 101-95 with 49 seconds to play.The Nets had won six of seven at home but couldn’t overcome a series of misadventures, from Andrea Bargnani’s pass out of bounds behind him, to Brook Lopez and Young colliding while going for a ball and knocking it directly to Jordan for a dunk, to an unusual lane violation on a technical foul shot, when Jack appeared to start walking toward the basket while Paul who should have been the only one there was still shooting.They still almost pulled it out, getting 15 points apiece from Joe Johnson and Bojan Bogdanovic. NEW YORK >> Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick each scored 21 points, and the Los Angeles Clippers ended a seven-game, two-state road losing streak against the Brooklyn Nets with a 105-100 victory Saturday night.Chris Paul had 15 points and 14 assists for the Clippers, who hadn’t beaten the Nets on the road since Dec. 11, 2007, back when the Nets played in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Clippers never beat them during the Nets’ brief stay in Newark and had been 0-3 in Brooklyn.DeAndre Jordan finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds as the Clippers bounced back from Thursday’s loss in Chicago to improve to 3-1 on their road trip that ends Monday in Detroit. Thaddeus Young scored 18 points and Jarrett Jack had 16 points and 11 assists for the Nets, who were trying for their first three-game winning streak of the season.
