10 months agoReal Madrid convinced Levy faces having to sell Spurs ace Eriksen

first_imgReal Madrid convinced Levy faces having to sell Spurs ace Eriksenby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveReal Madrid are convinced they can prise Christian Eriksen away from Tottenham in 2019.AS says Real management believe the Dane’s decision to suspend new contract talks has handed them an advantage in their battle of wills with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.With Eriksen’s deal due to expire in 2020, this summer represents the best time for Levy to sell – a situation even manager Mauricio Pochettino recognises is now becoming reality.”Of course he is an important player and as coach you want to have him with you, but in the end it is a negotiation and there are different parties that have different interests, it would be great if he stays here, but, if not, it is in your right to do what you want,” said the Argentine.For their part, Real are prioritising Eriksen as the player to succeed veteran Luka Modric as their prime playmaker.

The Seattle Seahawks Youth Could Portend a Dynasty Yes Really

It wasn’t long after the Seattle Seahawks put the finishing touches on their 43-8 Super Bowl rout of the Denver Broncos that media people began throwing around the d-word, dynasty, as they peered into the franchise’s future.Of course, this happens with just about every Super Bowl winner; squint hard enough, and even the most obvious one-and-done champ looks like a perennial powerhouse. (In some ways, talk of that nature gets even more far-fetched with each passing season — we haven’t seen a repeat Super Bowl winner since the 2004 New England Patriots.) But in Seattle’s case, it might not be totally implausible to expect an elevated probability of a full-blown dynasty.Historically, teams that have won a title find themselves surprisingly well-positioned to win more of them. Since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger, 55.9 percent of Super Bowl winners won at least one more championship within the following 10 seasons. Even within that club, though, Seattle is starting from a better spot than most. Its schedule-adjusted pythagorean winning percentage during the 2013 regular season ranked sixth among all Super Bowl champions since the merger, trailing only the 1985 Chicago Bears, 1991 Washington Redskins, 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers, 1996 Green Bay Packers and 1973 Miami Dolphins.More importantly, the Seattle’s core is incredibly young for an NFL champion. Weighted by the Approximate Value produced by each player on the roster, the Seahawks’ average age (26.0) was the second-youngest in the league a season ago and ranked third-youngest among Super Bowl winners since the merger. The two champs who had lower average ages? The 1974 Steelers and 1981 San Francisco 49ers, each of whom would go on to win three more Super Bowls apiece in their next decade of play. (Seattle also ranks as slightly younger than the 1992 Dallas Cowboys, who won two additional rings in a dynastic run.)Looking at all Super Bowl winners from 1970 to 2003 (for which we have a “next decade” worth of data), there’s a relationship between the team’s AV-weighted age in its championship season and its chances of winning additional titles.Among the aforementioned 55.9 percent of all Super Bowl champions who won another before a decade was up, a disproportionate number are clustered among the youngest teams on the list. Eleven of the 12 youngest champions in our 1970-2003 group went on to win at least one more Super Bowl in the following decade, while only four of the 12 oldest champs would go on to win another title.Usually, talk of dynasty potential among freshly christened champions isn’t very predictive. But because of their youth, these Seahawks are in a situation where the odds of winning another championship are particularly heightened. read more

No spotlight needed Lighty does dirty work turns in career season

There’s no arguing who the go-to player is on the Ohio State men’s basketball team.Whenever the Buckeyes desperately need a basket they turn to junior guard Evan Turner.As Turner continually leads OSU in every offensive statistical category, he is the recipient of frequent accolades and praise for his contribution to the team.But as Turner gets all the attention, the team’s most experienced player, junior David Lighty, quietly goes about his business playing a vital role on the nation’s 21st-ranked team. After originally making a name for himself as the Buckeyes’ best defensive player, this year Lighty has shown a knack for filling in any and every role his team needs him to fill.Take last week for example.The Buckeyes were at Purdue and Boilermaker guard Robbie Hummel had just torched OSU for 29 points in the first half. With seemingly no answer for Hummel’s prolific shooting, coach Thad Matta turned to Lighty to stop the bleeding.“I told the guys at halftime we need to change up or he’s going to get about 100 points in this game,” Matta said. “I challenged Dave to guard him and he did a great job.”After Hummel’s impressive first half shooting display, Lighty held him to a mere six points over the course of the final 20 minutes.Although Lighty finished with just five of his team’s 70 points, he kept the Buckeyes in the game with his effort on the defensive end.Saturday’s game, however, required Lighty to make his mark on the other end of the floor.With Turner’s minutes limited due to early foul trouble, Lighty took the over as the Buckeyes’ go-to scorer and finished the game with a team-high 18 points.“The defense in the Purdue game to the scoring in the Wisconsin game,” Matta said. “Those are all things that this team needs.”Though Matta made it clear that he never underestimates Lighty’s contribution to the team, the coach acknowledged that some people may not completely comprehend just how important he is.“I said last year when he went down,” Matta said referencing a season-ending foot injury Lighty sustained last season. “I don’t think anybody completely understood the magnitude of that injury. He does so many things to help [our] team win.”For Lighty, the lack of attention is nothing new.He arrived on campus as perhaps the least talked about member of coach Matta’s 2006 recruiting class. He was a role player the following year on the Buckeyes’ NIT championship team and he missed most of the next season with the foot injury.And now, with the emergence of Turner as the face of the Ohio State program, Lighty yet again seems to have been designated to a background role.But whether or not he gets the respect he deserves from the general public, Matta is always quick to mention the importance of having Lighty on the floor.“I don’t know, with David, if there’s one thing that I can say that, ‘this is so important,’” Matta said. “There are so many things that he does that add up to help [our] team.” read more

Rodale Shuts Down Its Content Marketing Group

first_img The decision to dissolve the group comes a month after it was announced that company president Scott Schulman would be stepping down and that Maria Rodale was returning to a more active role running the company. Rodale Grow, the custom content agency at Rodale, was shut down last week, sources tell Folio:. The decision is surprising given the resources publishers in general have put behind their marketing services divisions. It’s unclear whether Rodale plans to relaunch some kind of marketing services division or shift the business to the brand level, but there doesn’t appear to be any formal plans going forward.  The remaining active clients, including Johns Hopkins, Sodexo and Whole Foods, were notified that same week that they’d need to take their business to a new firm.  The source says Rodale Grow’s business had been going in the wrong direction for at least a couple years and that new business development had all but dried up, although there were plans being put into place to turn that around. center_img A spokesperson provided this statement: “As we continue to transform from publisher to healthy living company, we made a strategic decision to focus on our core business and new areas of growth.” At the Content Council’s Pearl Awards this month, Rodale Grow took home three awards: a gold, two silvers and a bronze. Initial word of the shutdown was passed to group executives on Monday, November 9. By the following Wednesday, at least six staffers from the business and marketing side of the operation were let go, according to sources. Although one source says there were likely more cuts, but couldn’t say exactly how many due to the overlapping nature of responsibilities on the content and creative side. last_img read more

German TV manufacturer Loewe has filed for insolve

first_imgGerman TV manufacturer Loewe has filed for insolvency, as attempts to restructure the business and refocus itself as an “entertainment platform system provider.”In a statement, Loewe said that the Coburg insolvency court yesterday approved the self-administration proceedings from Loewe’s management, but said that business “will remain fully operational beyond October 1, 2013.”It said that a restructuring process, initiated by the executive board, will also continue and that the company’s banks and the Bavarian state government continue to support the firm’s restructuring.“At the core of the change process at Loewe is the move from a TV manufacturer to an entertainment platform system provider. Besides specialised hardware knowledge, it is becoming increasingly important for Loewe to have greater software expertise to facilitate the management of its multimedia smart home-entertainment systems,” said Loewe.“Moreover, the company will join forces with partners to start offering special premium content exclusively for Loewe customers, thereby underlining the strong benefits of Loewe systems.”The firm has already partnered with Chinese company Hisense and recently launched joint sales and marketing activities with them in Austria, which Loewe said would be a test market for other European countries.last_img read more
