Criticism from Nick Saban to Media for ‘6 feet under’
Nick Saban as college football coach was quite furious related to opinion coming from particular media related to his team. His team actually won in Georgia, and there was something problematic making the team citizen by media. He was asked on how to react to “noise” outside the program of training as well as “perception” that is going to be fluid from time to time. Such problem should have made the team lose their focus, but it did not happen as the team could win the match. Cruising agen bola online terpercaya was then responded by Nick Saban.
He said that he could have said the same thing last week. In addition, he wisely said that anything thought and said did not matter anyway. No one in the team was playing for others, he added. The team was supposed to do what they should do, playing the game and winning the game. Therefore, the team has nothing to do with commentary or outside influence. Everything can be focused quite well because the coach and players do what they should do. What others think and say is really not important to be discussed as they only create havoc for performance. They kept to be as professional as possible by fulfilling their duty. That was actually what he responded to the media.
Moreover, he also added that he believed in the ability of his team. Therefore, it was all about performance and trust given to the team for doing their best for victory, as exactly what they did. He also said that everything he and his team did was not directed to media. It was all for fans as they kept the team motivated by supporting the team each time they are in the match. Media was only able to make the team scattered, and that was why the coach was so passionate in criticizing it. He also sharply said that if anything was done for the sake of media, they could have been defeated as they could end up in 6 feet under. That means, the team could not continue his struggle in this season, and it was basically good news for media. That is what was implied by the coach.
Alabama was quite unlucky this time as being degraded from 8th position into 12th. It was also close call that they could leave the field immediately against Ole Miss in two weeks ago. Some pundits had several inquiries related to the quality of the team, and that is also means possibility of Saban to be kicked out. Moreover, there was also difference in opinions making the players unable to have focus which was then exploited by media.
On Monday, Saban was quite passionate after knowing what the team’s decision against the Bulldogs. However, he also warned the team that wining is still priority, and it should happen. Saban also ended his sentence by expressing that there is unity within the team and it will continue to be bound like that. The opposing team should face real challenge against Alabama as this team is still solid.

Before he lost the game, he actually led the game for two sets in Grand Slam game.
According to Nadal, he will work hard in creating opportunities for the next several years. Then he added that he will find his level of playing tennis again by relaxing and then controlling his emotion and if it can be happen as what he had planned, it must be happen as soon as possible since he feels much better right now and then he can get what he lost this season. He also said that it is different from the last seasons since this season nerves played more than the injuries that happened to him.
In the early season in March after he lost from his fellow countryman at the Miami Open, Fernando Verdasco, he told to the reporters that he felt more exhausted than usual and then he also felt that he did not have his own confidence, as a result when he hit the ball to the place he wanted it to be, he could not make it even he thought that it was the right one.
In other previous game he played recently, for instance at the French Open several months later, the number one of tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic made Nadal bend her knees in a game of three-set. Then, at the All England Club, Nadal was sent to home by Dustin Brown in the round two of the game and this became the fourth straight time for Nadal to knock out from the Wimbledon by a player who actually has lower rank than him.

He said that it is actually not his all out condition, he is not one hundred percent fit, but today is much better than yesterday. It is close to get the perfect one hundred percent fit and he can enjoy the game again. Now, he is enjoying his time on the tennis court and he also enjoys his practicing time as well as he can enjoy the competition since he does not have something like anxiety and angst anymore.

He gets many supports for his performance that also makes people agree that Blue Jays are worthy to be the winner of this AL East.
But there’s also a player that people thinks didn’t expect their expectations. Many people choose Marcus Stroman as the player that failed to pitch the complete game. Stroman has been missing the game for the first five and a half months of this AL East, that’s why people think that he still unclear about the game in this league. So far, he just gets one run from five hits, walking two from the striking out eight. It’s actually kind of waste since he got many chances to play better in the game. People give him 4-10 points with a 1.67 ERA. Well, that’s one of the things that people think that Blue Jays are not supposed to be win. It’s not a wise decision to let the long-absent player to join the game in the middle of the game and in the end he didn’t shows his excellent performance.
Anyway, whatever the opinions, Blue Jays are still the winner. They need to prove the people who are disagree with the result those they worth to be the winner. Blue jays will have another match with Orioles on Thursday. It’ll be doubleheader game again just like the final game. The game will be held in Kansas City and start at 1:05 p.m. It’s the chance to prove their quality and their great performance.

Returning Player Kobe Bryant was Extremely Happy
Posted onOctober 16, 2015
Kobe Bryant is an excellent basketball player for Los Angeles Lakers. He was able to play again after sometime against Jazz. The first quarter was supposed to be his game, but it did not work as he had planned previously. Before the first quarter ends, exactly less than 10 minutes left, he got a chance for scoring 3 points in Sunday from left corner. However, the ball was mistakenly directed into the side of backboard. Indeed, it definitely was not a good thing to happen because it was a free execution which should have been done perfectly. However, he failed, and he was supposed to be devastated.
Unfortunately, such condition lasted, and it was worsened by the fact that within 12 minutes, the score was only 5. In addition, the supporters were not coming in yet in the Stan Sherriff Center in University of Hawaii at Mania. Though he could not contribute greatly in this match, he was able to provide 3 points shot. The shot coming from right corner flying away over Gordon Hayaward was awesome, and it was great point for Bryant. Being able to shoot the ball over the Swingman was great experience after not being able to play seriously and professionally because of rest.
In the early January back then, he could perform some actions that contributed to team greatly. Unfortunately, in the end of the month, he should be taken care and he should rest because of injury. He damaged his rotator cuff of right shoulder which could not be fixed quickly. It was really unfortunate for him as he should have ended his 2014 – 2015 season at that point. He could only play 35 games after all, and it is no wonder why he needs to adjust to the game from the beginning again. Though it will not be an easy task, he was confident and happy. He said that everything was good and being able to go out to the field was just good.
In addition, he also expressed how happy he was by saying that his legs are stronger. Moreover, he also said that he had more stamina as not being fatigue after the match. Actually it quite makes sense since he did not play full round at that time. Moreover, the tempo of the game was not quite fast as well. After all, he was happy with the game, and it was good for his development. Bryant also believed that he had to adjust himself better than before to achieve victory.
Regarding to his performance, Byron Scott as Lakers’ coach was quite happy as well. He commented that Bryan was good at the match by moving quite well without being seen to have any problem with his shoulder. Though he was getting better, there seems no chance for him to be deployed form the beginning to the end of the game. In the next Tuesday, he will be limited to play based on minutes for testing his condition. After that, he could perform full time after everything has been tuned in once again.
