first_imgMORE: What can NBA coaches challenge during games?Lou Williams absolutely brutalizes Eric Bledsoe on this foul. KO.— Justin Russo (@FlyByKnite) November 7, 2019Here’s another angle of Lou Williams knocking out Eric Bledsoe.— Justin Russo (@FlyByKnite) November 7, 2019″They should’ve overturned it,” Rivers said after the game (via ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk). “That’s why I hate the rule. Nobody wants to be wrong. Let me just say that. You have to overturn that. Unless Bledsoe fouled Lou with his face, there was no foul on that play… “There was a flop. I think it [would’ve] been more of a chance that Bledsoe got a letter from the league about flopping than Bledsoe got fouled. That was awful. I don’t like the rule anyway. I said it up front. And now I like it even less.”Following in the footsteps of the NFL and MLB, the NBA introduced a coach’s challenge for the 2019-20 season. Each team has one challenge available per game, and coaches are allowed to challenge personal foul calls, out-of-bounds calls and goaltending/basket interference calls over the course of the game. “Clear and conclusive evidence” is required in order to overturn a call on the floor. (For a more in-depth explanation of the rule, go here.)Through the Clippers’ first eight games, Rivers has lost his only two challenges, but he should be at a 50 percent success rate based on Wednesday night’s video evidence. The NBA coach’s challenge may still be in its infancy, but Doc Rivers already has strong feelings about the new rule.The Clippers coach ranted about a failed challenge in the fourth quarter of his team’s 129-124 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday night, saying an offensive foul call on Los Angeles guard Lou Williams was “awful.” Rivers did have a strong case, as the replay angles available showed Milwaukee’s Eric Bledsoe throwing his head back after minimal contact with Williams’ shoulder.last_img read more

first_imgPORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Guyana Jaguars seamer Raymon Reifer sustained his good form as he helped trigger a Trinidad and Tobago Red Force batting collapse on the opening day of their seventh round clash yesterday.Opting to bat first, Red Force were well positioned at 172 for four but slumped badly to lose their last six wickets for 30 runs to be bowled out for a disappointing 202 in their first innings at Queen’s Park Oval.Left-hander Isaiah Rajah top-scored with 41 while Imran Khan got 36 and Yannic Cariah, 33.It was Reifer who helped to destroy the latter part of the innings, finishing with three for 38 with his left-arm seam while pacer Romario Shepherd (2-36), Test leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo (2-46) and left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul (2-59) all picked up two wickets each.At the close, tournament leaders Jaguars were 38 for one, having lost Shimron Hetmyer for 15, four overs before the end.STRONG STARTHoping to build on their massive win over Windward Islands Volcanoes in the last round, Red Force started fairly strongly despite losing opener Evin Lewis cheaply for 22 with 34 runs on the board.Captain and opener Kyle Hope and Rajah rebuilt the innings in a 47-run, second wicket stand to propel the hosts to 62 for one at lunch.Rajah faced 96 deliveries in just over two hours and counted six fours while Hope hit four fours in a 101 balls at the crease before falling to fellow Barbadian Reifer after lunch with the score on 81.Bishoo struck twice in a productive period for Jaguars as Red Force lost three wickets for 30 runs to decline to 111 for four.last_img read more

first_imgSheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal has signed a new contract with the Championship club.Carvalhal, 51, whose previous contract was due to expire this summer, had been linked with Norwich and Porto as speculation over his future gathered pace.The Owls confirmed the new deal on their official website on Tuesday night but did not disclose the length of his contract. Carvalhal’s backroom staff have also extended their stay at the club.The Owls lost out on penalties to Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield last week after finishing fourth in the table, falling short in the play-offs for the second successive year.But Carvalhal has helped transform the club in his two seasons at Hillsborough, turning them into genuine promotion contenders.The former Sporting Lisbon and Besiktas coach became the Owls’ first overseas manager when appointed in June 2015 as a replacement for Stuart Gray.Wednesday never revealed the length of Carvalhal’s contract when he first arrived at the club, while it was reported that he had signed a new three-year deal before last season’s play-off final defeat to Hull.But it is understood he never put pen to paper on that three-year agreement and instead signed a new one-year deal.

first_imgIt is one of those indelible images from the late 1960s that remains locked in the minds of those who were there. It’s a comedy album photograph of a nearly naked Richard Pryor, dressed in a loincloth, with bones through his nose and beads around his neck like a stereotypical African bushman from an old Tarzan movie. But there is a glare on the comedian’s face on 1968’s “Richard Pryor” album that seems to say, “I’m here and I’m going to change your thinking about race relations in every way possible.” That’s what Pryor, who died Saturday of a heart attack at age 65, did for people all across America in the 1970s, his breakthrough decade and a time when the country was hotly divided not only by the Vietnam War but by the civil rights battles of the 1950s and ’60s that preceded it. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals He did it by bringing black and white audiences together to laugh as one, at least for the length of a concert or a comedy album, at the madness all around them. “He was a brilliant and incredibly courageous performer,” recalled humorist Paul Krassner, whose magazine “The Realist” once published an essay by the comedian commenting on the disproportionate number of black soldiers that seemed to be fighting the Vietnam War. Pryor headlined it, “Uncle Sam Wants You, Nigger.” It was a word he would use frequently in the 1970s, even using it in the name of his second album as he tried to take the sting out of the epithet by repeating it over and over. After a visit to Africa in 1980, however, he would renounce it and say he no longer wanted to hear the word, either from his “hip white friends” or his fellow blacks. A subsequent recording was titled “That African-American is Still Crazy,” with the offending word crossed out. Such upfront, no-holds-barred, socially conscious commentary won Pryor the admiration of seemingly every black comic who followed him, an admiration perhaps best summed up by Keenen Ivory Wayans, who once said Pryor demonstrated “you can be black and have a black voice and be successful.” Pryor’s comedy also drew equally warm reactions from white comedians, including Bob Newhart, who on Saturday called Pryor “the single most seminal comedic influence in the last 50 years.” Although he was not the first comedian to liberally use the N-word or the F-word or any number of other once-unspoken-in-public words, Pryor seemed to use them to greater comedic effect than anyone else. When he was at his best he was not just funny, he was laugh-out-loud, falling-down, tears-in-your-eyes funny. Twisting and writhing his body into any number of contortions, Pryor would switch effortlessly from accent to accent as he told stories that made fun of every ethnicity and nationality he’d encountered. In one of the routines from his classic 1981 performance, “Live on the Sunset Strip,” the comedian recalled working for a Mafia-run nightclub that wasn’t paying him the money it had promised. Grabbing a gun and doing “my best black s–” he tried to rob the club owner, only to find that his performance, one that he recalled “usually scares” the average white person, provoked only laughter from an Italian-American mobster. “Do it again, Rich, put the gun up here,” he had the mobster telling him before going on to regale Pryor with stories of all the people he’d rubbed out. He could also do broader comedy, a talent that was displayed clearly in his best nonconcert films, “Silver Streak” and “Stir Crazy” with Gene Wilder. He even handled the occasional dramatic turn well, and he won an Emmy as a writer for one of Lily Tomlin‘s TV comedy specials. But stand-up, where he was left unbridled by censors, would become his legacy and win him five Grammy Awards for comedy album. Fellow comedian Steve Martin noted upon Pryor’s death: “By expressing his heart, anger and joy, Richard Pryor took comedy to its highest form.” – Associated Press 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgDonegal’s first Supermac’s fast food restaurant is set to open its doors by August 2018. Donegal fans of the franchise will have to wait just another six weeks before getting the popular fries, burgers and Papa John’s pizzas at the Supermac’s in Drumlonagher, outside Donegal Town.The restaurant was expected to bring up to 60 jobs to the new service station site, which includes a retail convenience store, car and HGV fuelling pumps and the Supermac’s Restaurant. The Irish Independent reports that Supermac’s founder Pat McDonagh has had setbacks in launching in Donegal due to planning. He said it was difficult to find the right sites, but the demand was high for Supermac’s in the county.“If I had a €100 for every request for a Supermac’s in Donegal, I could easily retire,” McDonagh told the paper.Plans were submitted by Atlantic Enterprises Ltd for a second Supermac’s in Letterkenny, near the Station Roundabout. Objections were made to the application for a two-storey restaurant with a drive-thru for various reasons, including traffic. A decision is due from Donegal County Council in the coming months.With over 100 branches nationwide, Supermac’s is Ireland’s largest and fastest-growing indigenous fast food group. The group employs 2,700 people with a €82M turnover.
