Worse News: Operation Kakogoliro: Ugandan Expendables!!!

In a lot of ways Expendables successfully rekindled people’s love for old- school action flicks and we are seeing a bigger and bigger tidal waves of EX inspired films like Asylum’s female mercenaries riff Mercenaries and recent Mark Dacascos’s directing debut Showdown in Manila (with Casper Van Dien , Matthias Hues, Cary Tagawa and Olivier Gruner) but the newest one is perhaps the most intriguing.

Dacascos and company, coming soon!

Coming straight from the slums of Wakaliwood, famed no- budget action director Isaac Nabwana is presenting his grandest opus to date.

Patriots add assets for Tom Brady in NFL draft, but QB question looms

Instead of drafting Tom Brady’s eventual successor with one of their two first-round picks Thursday night, the New England Patriots picked two players who should be able to immediately help their veteran quarterback in the twilight of his career.
Nike NFL Reuben Foster Olive/Gold Jersey Men's Limited: #56 San Francisco 49ers 2017 Salute to Service
There’s some quarterbacks left in the draft? Caserio joked late Thursday during his news conference in Foxborough, Mass.,聽responding to a question about the passers left on the board.

Game Kids Devin Hester Jersey Look, there’s a lot of good players and a lot of positions. We will recalibrate in the morning see where we are, Caserio said.

Veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer remains under contract as Brady’s backup (returning for a second stint in New England last year after Hoyer’s former team, the 49ers, traded for Brady’s previous backup, Jimmy Garoppolo), but the Patriots at some point need to address the long-term future at that position.

Several of the top remaining quarterback prospects could be drafted by the end of the third round Friday night, including Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph, Washington聽 Richmond’s Kyle Lauletta and Washington聽State’s Luke Falk.

But the Patriots also need to address some defensive spots in the next few rounds, including linebacker, pass rusher and defensive backs.

If Belichick wants to continue the run on聽Georgia players 鈥?and don’t forget about how he helped lead聽defensive drills during the Bulldogs’ pro day in Athens 鈥?perhaps聽linebacker Lorenzo Carter聽could be an option.

But the Diamondbacks padded their lead in the eighth with three runs, highlighted by Descalso’s two-run homer that made it 8-4.

The game was played on a chilly, rainy night in front of a sparse crowd of 18,195. Much of Philadelphia sports fans’ attention on Tuesday night centered across the street for Game 5 of the 76ers’ first-round series clinching victory over the Miami Heat.

Velasquez took a step back from a strong string of three straight good outings and couldn’t get through Bennie Fowler Jersey the fifth inning, allowing four runs on four hits in 4 2/3 innings with six strikeouts and two walks. It ended a span of 12 straight starts by Philadelphia starters with three earned runs or fewer.

Velasquez entered having gone six or more innings in three straight starts after doing that just three times all of 2017.

Farquhar collapsed in the dugout after coming off the mound during the sixth inning of Friday’s home game against the Houston Astros. After receiving treatment from White Sox medical personnel and on-site emergency medical technicians, Farquhar was transported to nearby Rush University Medical Center, where he remains.

Before Thursday’s game at Kansas City, the White Sox took the field for batting practice wearing black T-shirts that read PRAY FOR 43, with FOR DANNY on the left sleeves.

White Sox reliever Nate Jones also said the team would keep Farquhar’s No. 43 jersey in the bullpen.

NBA, NBPA focus on lowering minimum age requirement

The NBA and National Basketball Players Association’s conversations on eliminating the one-and-done entry rule have centered on lowering the minimum age requirement no sooner than the 2020 draft, league sources told ESPN.

He also coached at Northern Illinois and Minnesota, where he was named 2014 Big Ten Coach of the Year before seizures caused by his epilepsy forced him to step down after four-plus seasons and a 29-29 record (14-21 Big Ten). The Golden Gophers went to three bowl games during Kill’s tenure.

Kill has dealt with epilepsy his entire career, and he missed two Gophers games in 2013 while undergoing treatment.

He went on to become an associate athletic director for Kansas State in 2016 and returned to coaching shortly after, signing on as offensive coordinator at Rutgers for the 2017 season.

After suffering several seizures while with the Scarlet Knights, including one in the football office on Sept. 10, 2017, Kill quietly stepped away on Sept. 19.

He returned to SIU in March as a special assistant to Montemagno.

It is the benchmark for our roster’s cornerstone players — $30.

So far in 2018, the $30 Club includes the usual suspects. Mike Trout leads all players with $44 in roto earnings. Other club members include regulars Mookie Betts ($38), Bryce Harper ($35), Max Scherzer ($34), Charlie Blackmon ($30) and Manny Machado ($30).

There are a handful of players who are $20-plus regulars experiencing an early surge. These players may sustain their performances but are also candidates for at least moderate regression. They include Didi Gregorius ($39), Carlos Correa ($33) and Justin Verlander ($30). Aaron Judge ($34) is trying to prove that his $32 performance in 2017 was no fluke, but so far his earnings are driven as much by his batting average (.325) as his power (6 HRs).

For the following players, $30 in earnings puts them in uncharted waters. None has earned $30 before, and for some, that level exceeds anything industry analysts have ever projected.

Gentry, who served as an assistant on Warriors coach Steve Kerr’s staff when Golden State won an NBA title in 2015, joked that he should have stolen a playbook from his former team before he left town. He is looking forward to the challenge that Golden State still provides.steelers_051

LeBron James figured he had experienced everything in 12 postseasons.

Turns out, there was something new.
Adidas NHL Men's Connor McDavid Green Authentic Jersey - #97 Edmonton Oilers Salute to Service
They were more aggressive, James said. They just played inspired basketball A. J. Cann Womens Jersey and they just took advantage of everything we wanted to try and do. They were more physical than us at the point of attack, and they were most precise with what they wanted to do and we couldn’t score the ball.

McKenzie told reporters Friday that after three months of working with Gruden, he’s confident that the two of them are close enough in the way they evaluate draft picks that they’re not going to disagree when the Raiders are on the clock next week.

I’ve got a feeling for Coach Gruden. We like the same type of players, McKenzie said. Just good football players. It’s not about height, weight, speed or where they come from. It’s about who they are as players, do they love playing football. All those characteristics you truly like about football players.

Let’s put their playoff pedigree aside for a moment. Only five teams have lost Games 1 and 2 of a best-of-seven series at home in OT. Each of those five teams went on to lose their series. So history is working against them.

We had a talk on the phone, Allen said of the Bills. They just basically wanted explanations for everything, and I gave them to them. I owned up to my mistakes, told them exactly what happened. They trusted me. They trusted my judgment. I think they did their due diligence in talking to my coaches, talking to teammates. There’s never been a problem with me and my teammates. I love those guys, and I guarantee you they would say some really good things about me.
Authentic Mens Carlos Beltran Jersey
Someone leaked the tweets, which included use of the N word, to Yahoo. Allen was asked if he knew who or why the tweets were made public.
Junior Galette Game Jersey
I think somebody knew what they were doing, Allen said. There were some tweets that were already deleted probably a few months, if a year ago. Somebody knew what they were doing. It’s out there. It’s my fault. I can’t blame anybody else for my own mistakes. Success is the best revenge, . . . and the plan is to win football games and earn my teammates’ respect and my coaches’ respect.

The question was the last of the night for Allen, with no chance of a follow to ask why somebody wanted to make him look bad.

He earlier said he will address the issue with his new teammates, making sure his black teammates understand there was no malintent on his part. Allen said he does not expect an extra layer of scrutiny.

Browns were leaning Bradley Chubb, decided to go with Denzel Ward instead

Cody Eakin Authentic Jersey
If the draft had been held this morning, Bradley Chubb possibly would be a Brown right now.
(New York Giants Brad Wing Game Nike Women's Red Jersey) NFL Alternate #9
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Browns were leaning heavily toward Chubb on Thursday morning. As the day unfolded, however, they ended up changing their minds and leaning toward Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward.

The game’s ABC telecast had Howard Cosell and Tom Seaver in the booth. In the top of the eighth 鈥?and thanks to reader Jeff Lake of Binghamton for the heads-up 鈥?Cosell noted that Yankees starter Mike Torrez’s last pitch was clocked at 95 mph, thus he’s not likely tired.

Seaver: He has still only thrown about 92, 93 pitches. He had 86 at the start of this inning. So there’s no reason, really, to be tired.

The Yanks won, 8-4. Torres went the full nine, allowing nine hits and two walks. Length of game: 2:18.

Toward that end, the Lions could use running backs. But they have plenty of time to find one in later rounds of the draft.

New England supporters will take issue with this low ranking, but Bill Belichick’s recent drafts have been awful. It is a testament to Tom Brady’s talent and Belichick’s roster ingenuity and coaching that the Patriots have been able to maintain their winning ways with drafting like this.

John Elway aced the draft early in his career as a Broncos executive, but he has so many swings and misses since then. Taking Paxton Lynch in the first round in 2016 looks Laremy Tunsil Jersey like the latest, and it caused them to sign Case Keenum in free agency.

Brandon Beane is in his second year of trying to fix the Bills. His predecessors left him with plenty of problems. Taking Manuel in 2013 and trading up for Sammy Watkins in 2014 are at the top of the list.

Pete Carroll: Colin Kaepernick discussion is still open

The Seahawks were set to meet with free agent Colin Kaepernick last week, but the meeting never wound up happening.
#20 Nike Swingman Doug McDermott Men's White NBA Jersey - Dallas Mavericks Association Edition
Depending on which reports you read, that was because Kaepernick wouldn’t pledge to stand during the national anthem or because the Seahawks wanted to know more about Kaepernick’s overall plans including his pursuit of a collusion grievance against the NFL. The Seahawks subsquently signed two quarterbacks, but coach Pete Carroll said Thursday that adding Stephen Morris and Austin Davis didn’t shut the door.

Game Youth Paxton Lynch Jersey But was the NFL juggernaut doomed to crash eventually as saturation grew? After years of slight rises and falls followed by three straight years of increased viewership (2013-15), an abrupt drop-off in 2016 became in 2017 the least-watched NFL season since 2008.

Some view it as the result of more games drawn out across the week and a poorer product on the field catching up to the league and its networks. Five prime NFL TV windows each week (Monday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, Thursday Night Football, early head-to-head games on CBS and Fox and late doubleheader games) mean, with seven games, 14 teams are needed to help sell the telecasts, and there aren’t typically 14 competitive, big-market teams.

But they clearly saw a window to acquire them while quarterback Jared Goff is on that nice, cheap, rookie deal, and are happy to trade future questions for a stockpile of talent.

His intangibles, clutch gene and prowess at making Chris Wideman Authentic Jersey plays off platform enable most NFL decision-makers to overlook his elongated throwing motion and propensity to fumble. Accurate on the move with good anticipation.

Looks like Tarzan, is as accurate as Jane. Biggest upside. The prototypical size and rare arm talent will seduce many, but this is the definition of a project. Boom or bust. Whoever drafts him will ignore his 56.2 completion percentage.

More Drew Brees and Russell Wilson than Johnny Manziel, but he’s still a shade under 6-1. Accurate alpha dog with a forever chip on his shoulder. Inspirational leader with accuracy, mobility and moxie.

Don’t try to tell The Kid From Fordham he can’t beat the odds and pledge the NFL fraternity.

I feel like my whole life I’ve always been like the small-school kid, the kid that was the underdog, Chase Edmonds says at the TEST Sports Academy in Martinsville, N.J.

I remember being in class at Fordham, and the teacher might ask people what they want to do after college, and you got people saying they want to be engineers, you got people saying they want to work on Wall Street, and I say, ‘I want to play in the NFL.’ And you can feel when people are kind of looking at you funny. I took it like a grain of salt, whatever, patted myself on the back and kept moving forward, and tried to stay focused on my dream. And now that it’s about to be reality, it’s nothing better than to know that I proved many people wrong.

You stay the course, you keep the faith, and you never know what could happen, Edmonds says.

I don’t know what happened, I guess I got hit maybe, I come crying saying that I wanted to quit football, he says, and my dad told me that anything you start in life you always finish. ‘If you don’t like football after this year, you don’t have to play it again, but you’re gonna finish it.’ The rest is history.

No one can make up Steph’s contributions individually, Thompson said. That’s got to be done as a team and even then it’s hard with the way he can shoot the ball.

Thompson has found his touch after missing two weeks in March with a broken right thumb.

He followed up his brilliant 11-for-13 shooting day in a 113-92 Game 1 rout Saturday by hitting 12 of 20 shots. Durant also had six rebounds and six assists for the Warriors, who went without key backup big man David West down the stretch after he sprained his left ankle early in the fourth.

Coach Steve Kerr stuck with JaVale McGee as his starting center and the 7-footer contributed 10 points and seven rebounds as the well-rounded defending champions again showed off their remarkable depth.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 34 for the Spurs despite facing double-teams and Rudy Gay moved into the starting lineup and scored 12 points.

Game 3 is Thursday as the series shifts to San Antonio.

NCAA approves biggest change yet to kickoff rule

The kickoff is on the way out in the sport of football, and the NCAA has just taken the biggest step yet toward eliminating the play that has begun every game in the sport’s existence.
Deone Bucannon Men's Limited Black Jersey: Nike NFL Arizona Cardinals 2016 Salute to Service #20
The only question is what will become of onside kicks, which are a staple of late-game comebacks. The NFL and the NCAA will both need to consider some kind of rule change that would allow teams trailing late in games to get the ball back after they score. The upstart Alliance of American Football has announced that it will do away with kickoffs but allow teams to try to get the ball back after scoring, by running one play from their own 30-yard line, needing to gain 10 yards to keep the ball.

Whether that rule gains traction or some other replacement for the onside kick is adopted, the reality is kickoffs are going away. The NCAA took a big step in that direction today.

Detroit Tigers Mens Jersey He started the last 27 games of his college career at Grand Valley State.
Jason Pinkston Mens Jersey
This rule, adopted in 2009 as part of the league’s decision to move the players from the locker room to the sideline during the national anthem, was drafted by the NFL. By using must in connection with the playing of the anthem and the players’ presence on the sideline but the non-mandatory term should when referring to standing during the anthem, the NFL created a loophole in the policy, making it different from the NBA rule that mandates standing: Players must be on the sideline for the anthem, and players should (not must) stand.

When the anthem controversy first emerged in August 2016, the NFL could have quickly revised the language of the rule, or the NFL could have taken the position that should as a practical matter means must within the broader context of the rule. After all, the league has brought them out of the locker room not to protest during the playing of the national anthem but to be props in the broader effort to wrap The Shield (which looks a lot like the flag) in the flag.

The fact that the rule didn’t appear in the CBA (which is the product of comprehensive collective bargaining between the NFL and NFL Players Association regarding the terms of employment) most likely would have given the league the ability to unilaterally change the rule. Rick Nash Youth jersey In other words, the league possibly could have simply changed the rule on the spot, without talking to or bargaining with the union.

The Los Angeles Dodgers overcame a blown save by struggling Kenley Jansen thanks to a clutch hit by Yasmani Grandal.

Women's Replica Majestic Jean Segura Navy Blue Alternate Jersey - #2 MLB Seattle Mariners Cool Base
Youth Oakland Athletics Jersey I don’t want to imagine where we’d be without him, manager Dave Roberts said of Grandal, who hit a grand slam in a 10-3 victory Monday night. Behind the plate and obviously at the plate, what he’s done. He’s done amazing things.

When you have a two-run lead and you get the best closer in baseball coming into the game, you expect to not use three other relievers, Roberts said. We have to get Kenley right, and we’re going to need him to accomplish what we want to accomplish.

Right now he’s not right, as far as the way the ball’s coming out of the hand, Roberts said of Jansen, who has an 8.10 ERA. We have all the confidence in Kenley. It’s one of those things that people go through and he’s got to work his way out of it.

Scott Alexander (1-0) got the win.

The Padres struck out 20 times, Cornelius Lucas Jersey tying the club record set in a 15-inning game in 2001.

Some of the pieces are already in place for Green Bay with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Quinten Rollins, Kevin King and Josh Jones. The 6’2, 215-pound James fills the gaps as a potential nickel corner, box defender, blitzer聽or pure safety. He shouldn’t be viewed as a position-specific prospect since he contributes in so many areas.聽

Cornerback is a more pressing need for the Arizona Cardinals than quarterback. They obviously want to find a franchise signal-caller, but the team lacked a true No. 2 corner for years.聽

Rarely does a veteran quarterback simultaneously sound so honest and yet so measured. Rivers is aware of his age, of how the professional game operates as a business, isn’t insecure about his job but also isn’t prepared to pass a torch to a new franchise quarterback.

He’s right, though: Eventually, the time will come. He’s 36 years old and is entering his 15th season. But if we’re talking performance, he still has plenty of gas left in his stubborn, sometimes spiteful tank.

When Super Bowl appearances practically become routine, internal disagreements feel like small matters.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft said just as much at the owners’ meetings in Orlando, Fla., on Monday when asked about the reported organizational tension, exposed in a January ESPN report that detailed a rift among the Patriots’ Big Three.
Limited Youth Danny Amendola Jersey Nike NFL Shilique Calhoun Pink Jersey Women's Limited: #91 Oakland Raiders Rush Fashion
Kraft, Belichick and Brady have repeatedly had to address ESPN’s account, which surmised growing tension could lead to the trio’s imminent breakup. Each of the three has denied the explosiveness of the report. Together, they’ve won five Super Bowls over 16 seasons.

Although Kraft said he still hasn’t gotten over the deflating loss to the Eagles, the 76-year-old downplayed the effects of a loss in the title game when compared to a losing season. In his first season of owning the Patriots in 1993, the team went 5-11 under then-coach Bill Parcells, who also was in his first season in New England.

I’ve owned the team 24 seasons, and I’ve had Bill [Belichick] as a head coach for 18 of Jason Smith Jersey those seasons, Kraft said. When I think of tension, I think of my first year as an owner. I love Bill Parcells, but players walked on eggshells and maybe ownership did as we went down the learning curve of how to get along. 鈥?The so-called tension gets greater when you lose.

If the Giants take a quarterback with the second overall pick, it could lead to some bruised feelings, with Eli Manning returning at 37 years old for his 15th season with the Giants and his replacement lurking on the roster. In this day and age in the NFL, a quarterback picked No. 2 in the draft is expected to play far sooner than later.

I think a lot of times that’s unavoidable in this sport, Mara said of hurting the feelings of the incumbent quarterback. You have to make decisions that are in the long-term best interests of the franchise. If feelings get hurt, you try not to do that, but if they do, they do.

Mara said it is too early in the evaluation process to know whom the Giants are targeting and, ultimately, whom they will take the night of April 26.

You want to know who we’re going to pick? We don’t, Mara said. You can give me eight different scenarios and I can tell you that it’s a possibility.

Believe me when I tell you, I don’t know if we’re taking a quarterback.

Derwin James’ availability is a godsend for the Green Bay Packers since the organization’s primary offseason goal is to overhaul a porous secondary. 

Safeties aren’t generally seen as top prospects, yet James’ combination of size, athleticism, versatility and playmaking ability make him a surefire top-15 selection.

Simply put, guards are rarely drafted in the top 10 in the modern NFL, let alone the top 5. In the 51 years of the modern NFL Draft — since the AFL and NFL had their first common draft in 1967 — just 16 guards have been picked in the first 10 picks, with only five of them going in the first five selections.

So Amendola said he did what he had to do for his family, and accepted Miami’s offer.

While Amendola praised Belichick as the best coach ever, he admitted playing for him could be hard.

Head coach Todd Bowles is expected to be in attendance along with General Manager Mike Maccagnan, who also attended Rosen’s workout at UCLA’s Pro Day. The Jets contingent will then head to Wyoming on Friday for Josh Allen’s Pro Day before hitting Norman, Oklahoma to work out Baker Mayfield this weekend.

The Jets moved up to the No. 3 pick in a trade with the Colts last weekend and many expect they made the move to improve their chances of landing their desired quarterback in this year’s draft.

C.J. Anderson was the first Broncos rusher to top 1,000 yards in a season since 2013. But that wasn’t enough for Denver to keep him around. Anderson has been released and will hit the market as a free agent, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo .

Gay spent 10 of his 11 NFL seasons with the Steelers, deviating only in 2012, a season he played for the Cardinals. Despite his advanced age for a cornerback, his career is marked by remarkable durability. Gay has never missed a game, playing in all 176, starting 101. Pat Shurmur, the new head coach, has talked since he was hired about “availability’’ as an underrated quality in a player.
