South Korea’s FC Seoul could be fined or docked points for using sex dolls instead of mannequins to fill empty seats during a league match after the K League said its disciplinary committee is to look into the incident, Yonhap news agency reported.The club placed the dolls, some of which were dressed in the team’s colors while others held placards supporting the side, in the stands on Sunday to make up for the absence of fans due to COVID-19 restrictions.However, viewers watching on television quickly pointed out that they looked more like sex dolls than mannequins and that some of them were holding placards bearing the name of an adult toy manufacturer. Topics : Seoul, who beat Gwangju 1-0, could be docked a minimum of five points or face a fine of at least five million won ($4,073.95), Yonhap said.The club apologized on Monday, saying they had failed to check the consignment sent by the supplier and that they were not aware the dolls were “adult products”.

Any outside hope of a coveted top-four slot almost certainly vanished on Sunday when the Reds failed to overcome a dogged West Ham outfit at Anfield. It is not exactly what was envisaged when Rodgers was installed as manager to replace Kenny Dalglish last summer. But Johnson insists there has been a marked improvement. “Brendan was brought in to rebuild the squad and put Liverpool back into the places that it should be,” said the 28-year-old. Press Association “This season has been a step closer to that. Eight times out of 10 we have dominated games. Sometimes, like against West Ham, we haven’t come away with the points that we deserve. We have battered teams but if we don’t get that early goal, it has given them encouragement.” Statistics back up Johnson’s argument to an extent. An eighth-placed finish last term is likely to become seventh at worst this, and no one at Anfield is giving up on hauling back Everton’s present three-point advantage on the run-in. With 49 points, the Reds are now just three adrift of the tally Kenny Dalglish collected last term, and relegation-threatened Reading and QPR are among their final six opponents. Yet Dalglish won the League Cup last year, and reached the FA Cup final, leaving the actual progress made under Rodgers open to interpretation. “Brendan wants to put us back in the top four but he wasn’t asked to do that in his first season,” said Johnson. “If we improve on last season then it is a step in the right direction, and we have definitely done that. It’s a few things. Look at the squad, the feeling there is around the place, the football we are playing. We won a trophy last season and of course that was fantastic. Everyone wants to win; that’s what we are in the game for. “But in terms of getting Liverpool back where they belong, we want to be back in the top four.” And Johnson is convinced the improvement will continue next season. “I wouldn’t say it has been a season when we have been so close but so far,” said Johnson. “It is clearly a better season than the last one. Brendan will look to improve again in the summer and if we can start nicking the goals we need from games like West Ham, we will be right in amongst it.” Liverpool defender Glen Johnson insists the club have moved forward under Brendan Rodgers.
Press Association Spurs chairman Daniel Levy took a huge gamble on Monday when he appointed managerial novice Sherwood as the club’s new head coach until the end of next season. The 44-year-old’s only previous managerial experience has been with the north Londoners’ youth teams, yet Levy believes he can bring excitement back to White Hart Lane following Andre Villas-Boas’ sacking. Newly appointed Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood likes that people are comparing him to a young Harry Redknapp and has pledged to bring exciting football back to White Hart Lane. Sherwood appears to be the polar opposite to his Portuguese predecessor, although there are striking similarities with another former Tottenham manager. Redknapp brought Sherwood back to Spurs as part of his coaching staff in 2008 and some have dubbed the new manager ‘Young Harry’, thanks to his mannerisms and approach to the game. “That’s got to be a compliment, hasn’t it?” Sherwood said. “I wouldn’t mind following his career and I wouldn’t mind being a pound note behind him as well. “I am not trying to be Harry Redknapp but it is a simple game, though, isn’t it? “If you can’t pass the ball to your own team-mates then you have a serious problem because you are going to have to keep on defending. “That’s what we did in the first half at Southampton. But moving forward we just have to try to get the players better.” The 3-2 victory at St Mary’s – Sherwood’s first in senior football – came in swashbuckling style, with the attack-heavy side likened to Ossie Ardiles’ Famous Five. It is a philosophy which looks set to continue when West Brom visit on Boxing Day and moving forward. “I think with the calibre of the players we have at Tottenham we shouldn’t have a dull game,” Sherwood said. “As long as they are playing in their correct areas of the field and allowed to express themselves. That’s what I would say. “I always maintain that when you come into a football club there are very few that give you a script saying ‘You need to play like this’. Swansea are a good example. “Someone who goes in there cannot rip up their philosophy and say ‘I’m going to play back to front.’ It’s not going to happen. “In an ideal world everyone wants to build an identity for their football club and say ‘Tottenham I know are going to play like that’. Well, at the moment we don’t.”
An unbeaten century from Craig Ervine sealed Zimbabwe’s first one-day series win for more than two years after a five-wicket victory over Ireland gave the hosts an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series in Harare. Ireland then restricted the hosts to 53 for two until Ervine, who hit a half-century in Zimbabwe’s two-wicket win on Friday, came to the crease and claimed another half-century off 68 balls before hitting the winning runs off a boundary in the 48th over to register his second ODI ton. Zimbabwe won the toss and for the second consecutive match chose to bowl first, but a much-improved batting display saw Paul Stirling’s rapid 72, Niall O’Brien’s half-century and Gary Wilson’s quick-fire 65 help Ireland reach 268 for seven from their 50 overs. Paceman Sikandar Raza was the pick of the bowlers as he took three for 49, including the wickets of O’Brien and Stirling. Press Association
What Corey Goldglit remembers most vividly was the screaming.The team stood around its running back, Tyrone Perkins. Some couldn’t watch. Others had tears in their eyes. One of the captains brought the team around in a circle, telling them they were going to pray and it didn’t matter if they were atheist or not. And Perkins, a Syracuse Class of 2015 commit, just yelled in anguish as he was carted off the field after tearing his ACL. “He screamed — I’ve never heard him scream like that before,” Goldglit, the Friends Academy quarterback said. “It was just shouting, mortifying pain.” In an instant, Perkins, a three-star running back from Locust Valley, New York, wouldn’t have a senior season. His future as a member of Syracuse’s 2015 recruiting class remained uncertain after he was injured on Sept. 6, and he didn’t know if the school would still honor a scholarship he’d accepted in April. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut that night, after he’d gotten home from the hospital and before all of his teammates had come to his house to check on him, he got a call from SU head coach Scott Shafer. “Honestly, that was the only thing that was going through my mind,” Perkins said. “The first second it happened, I was just focused on the knee. But after that, I was really nervous and scared about what was going to go on with (Syracuse).“… He told me that he loved me as a person. Finally hearing the words that everything is OK, I still have my scholarship, it shows a lot about him.”Goldglit pitched the ball to Perkins in a team scrimmage, and the running back ran about 10 yards downfield. After blowing past a couple defenders he was taken down on a poorly executed tackle from the safety, and his right knee hit the safety’s helmet, ending his final high school year a week before Friends Academy’s first game.He won’t ever play in a game for Friends Academy again, and his No. 5 jersey hangs above the entrance to the team’s locker room. Friends head coach Ron Baskind said that Perkins, aside from being the team’s best player and leader, made young football players want to play there. He also recruited basketball players to play football as well, but will now be in the background of the program. “All the pieces seemed to be together, it seemed like the beginning of a great story we were writing,” Baskind said. “And then all of a sudden, your heart just stops for a bit … our primary player is not going to be part of the story.”With Syracuse still a solidified part of his future, Perkins has accepted the situation. Instead of practicing with his team, he goes to physical therapy. Instead of making big plays, he calls them from the sideline. Perkins will have surgery to repair the tear on Oct. 7 and his doctors told him he should be able to run in a straight line by June. In the mean time, he’s been riding a bike, walking and shifting weight in his leg. He’s trying to improve his mobility and gets around in a walking boot. “I feel pain all the time,” he said. Perkins said he hopes the rehabilitation process will make for a quicker recovery, one that allows him to play during next year’s training camp.He was the first player to commit to SU’s Class of 2015. His vision of playing for Syracuse was clear and one that he didn’t second-guess.And even though his last chance to improve his game before college was ended before it began, Perkins said that this experience with Syracuse justifies his original commitment. “Hearing that they were holding up their end of the deal,” Perkins said,” it meant everything to me.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 23, 2014 at 12:10 am Contact Sam: email@example.com | @SamBlum3
In his annual State of the University address on Feb. 11, President C. L. Max Nikias placed heavy emphasis on increasing diversity throughout the USC community. His speech paralleled many of the student efforts that have been made to ameliorate recent problems with inclusion, including the Undergraduate Student Government’s Campus Climate Resolution, which was passed in the fall.The original resolution outlined multiple actions to be taken on the administration’s part. According to USG President Rini Sampath, after the passing of the resolution, Provost Michael Quick established a task force, which consists of Ainsley Carry, vice president for Student Affairs; Varun Soni, dean of Religious Life; Nikita Hamilton, Graduate Student Government president; Christina Gutierrez, GSG vice president; Sampath; Moira Turner, director of diversity affairs; Ginger Clark, president of the Academic Senate; Debra Langford, officer of diversity and inclusion initiatives in the Marshall School of Business; Domenika Lynch, executive director of the Latino Alumni Association; and Jodi Armour, professor at the Gould School of Law.However, Sampath also said the administration has yet to address several objectives of the resolution, including the hiring of additional Title IX coordinators and the establishment of a Vice President of Diversity. For this reason, Sampath said, there has been growing frustration among the student body.“We haven’t seen immediate action,” Sampath said. “Where the students, I think, are disappointed is that this is turning into more conversations, more dialogue, and it’s a cyclical advocacy process. Students are feeling [a lack] of trust in the process.”She added that students feel that there seems to be a discrepancy between the resolution and the actions taken by administrators. Graduate student Leslie Berntsen, who is one of the student organizers with the Campus Climate Coalition, echoed feelings of this discrepancy.“[Nikias] gave his State of the University and it addressed the wicked problems of diversity, equity and inclusion, and there was a great press release and it looked very good,” Berntsen said. “But that image is entirely at odds with the students’ opinions of who actually gets to talk to [him and other administrators].”Berntsen recalled one instance in which she saw an administrator walk past a student who was trying to ask whether he was going to be at a task force meeting, only to be completely disregarded.“The body language was so striking,” Bernsten said. “It was ‘I do not want to be here or talk to you about any of this.’ So I think there’s a disconnect between the material in speeches that are given and what’s actually happening on the ground as we’re organizing around these issues.”Berntsen said she sees Nikias’ speech as more of a “symbolic gesture” than anything else.“I appreciate the efforts,” Berntsen said. “I can’t emphasize that enough. But there’s still much work to be done.”Efforts in addition to the task force have included a secondary advisory board as well as open forums for students, according to Sampath. In addition, she said that the task force is pushing for transparency by publishing meeting summaries to a new website, diversity.usc.edu. In addition, Quick, to substitute for the VP of Diversity, has created a diversity liaison model, which will consist of faculty members and staff.“The student community is absolutely still pushing for this VP of Diversity spot,” Sampath said. “Especially because we see issues [such as] a student [telling] me they experienced an awful incident of racism and had no idea who to go to.”However, whatever the discrepancies may be, Sampath is pleased that there is an open discussion between the administration and the student body.“I think one of the biggest successes for us is to have opened this up as a conversation, and to have sustained that conversation,” Sampath said. “I think students [are] able to keep the momentum going. For example, our Campus Climate Coalition is now hosting general body meetings and the administration is hosting these task force meetings and open forums, so I’m really grateful.”
Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 3, 2018 at 6:23 pm Contact Sam: firstname.lastname@example.org | @Sam4TR Syracuse hadn’t scored in nearly eight minutes and Clemson attacked, hungry to land a final blow to the once-sizeable deficit it had reduced to one bucket.Clemson redshirt junior guard Marcquise Reed had stung the Orange repeatedly throughout the second half, with five 3-pointers and a flurry of short jumpers, and he had the chance to finally tie the game up again. The 6-foot-3 Reed maneuvered his way inside until he found Syracuse’s Paschal Chukwu blocking his way, but the 7-foot-2 center was one foul away from spectating the final seconds. Reed tried to draw a foul as he shot, but SU freshman forward Oshae Brissett flew in from stage left and managed to get a hand on it.“I just wanted to be there,” Brissett said. “We have Paschal contending, but Reed can move around. He’s a great scorer, so I needed to be there to help out.”Brissett’s block, late free-throw shooting and a rimmed-out Clemson half-court heave gave the Orange what star guard Tyus Battle called “the biggest win we’ve had all year.” The Orange didn’t score a field goal for nearly the final nine minutes, but Syracuse’s (19-12, 8-10 Atlantic Coast) defense held fast to close out the regular season with an upset of No. 18 Clemson (22-8, 11-7), 55-52, on Saturday afternoon in the Carrier Dome.The victory came in front of a similar crowd, record in numbers and raucous in volume, to what it had played in front of two Wednesdays ago against then-No. 10 North Carolina. This time, though, Syracuse finished the job and started a long trek to avoid taking consecutive trips to the National Invitation Tournament for the first time since the 2006-07 and 2007-08 seasons. Brissett called it the marquee win Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament resume has so far lacked, but the Orange begins its last shot to impress the Selection Committee on Tuesday night against Wake Forest at the ACC tournament in Brooklyn, New York.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We were about as challenged offensively as you can be,” said Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim. “We just were able to make enough plays, get some rebounds, didn’t turn it over today, that was a big factor. … That was just a tough defensive game.”Beating Clemson not only re-energized Syracuse’s postseason campaign, but it also served as a barometer for how the Orange hopes to get there. When asked what the Orange’s best chance was at making the Tournament, Battle quickly said, “Play defense.”He added: “We win off our defense. We hold a team to 60-something points and that’s enough in most games.”Saturday afternoon, Clemson did what many teams have done this season and tried to attack the Orange’s 2-3 zone through the high post and down low with its big men. Midway through the second half, Syracuse center Bourama Sidibe was whistled for a foul on a layup and put the Orange in a precarious position. He and the Orange’s other center, Chukwu, both had four fouls that led to the Tigers attacking relentlessly inside.Though the Orange won the rebounding battle (36 to 33) and protected the offensive glass (allowing nine boards there), Clemson’s two bigs, Elijah Thomas and Aamir Simms bully-balled. The pair rough-housed their way to nearly half the team’s points and complemented Reed’s game-high 21.But the timidity Syracuse has shown at times when key players like Chukwu have four fouls disappeared against Clemson. That was by design, Chukwu said.“Coach Boeheim told me, ‘You have four fouls, but don’t let that discourage you,’” Chukwu said. “‘Marek (Dolezaj) or Bourama can step in the middle (if you foul out).’ I had four fouls, but I tried to play like I had zero, because I was fighting down there and that’s all I could do.”Late in the second half, with the score tied at 45, Thomas stole the ball from Battle and Clemson broke up the court. Tigers senior guard Gabe DeVoe ended up with the ball and rose through the air trying to give his team its first lead in more than 10 minutes.Chukwu nearly pinned the ball off the left side of the backboard and the Carrier Dome erupted. Chukwu fell on the floor. Clemson grabbed an offensive rebound and worked the ball left to right and it ended up in DeVoe’s hands as he drove in. Chukwu stood up. DeVoe noticed and tried a floater. Chukwu swatted the shot like he was spiking a volleyball and the Dome roared to a standing ovation. The Tigers grabbed the ball but threw it out of bounds seconds later.“That second block, everyone went crazy,” Chukwu said, smiling after the game. “I was able to feel that energy.”Boeheim added: “We needed those plays from him. He started out the game good and he finished with those. We need him to be more effective defensively.”On the next possession, Brissett hit two free throws to give the Orange a lead it would never relinquish. And, as everything did Saturday, it came down to Syracuse on defense. This time, the Orange made all the plays it needed to. Comments
