* I think my guy Travis put it perfectly, “There’s action movies and then there’s Bond movies. There is a expectation of quality and class that the new Bond movies have that no other action movies comes close to in my opinion.”

Just unreal video in todays Russia v. Montenegro match as Russia’s goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was hit and knocked unconscious by flare during Euro qualifier at Montenegro. Igor was taken to the hospital and the game delayed a little more than a half and hour.
The crowd was told that the match would be abandoned if there was any more crowd drama and it turns out the police found and arrested the culprit not much later.
Another show in the books as David James and I take a look at who’s missing this Sunday because of the International Window, while breaking down goals scored and conceeded during TFC’s first two games on the road…. And what RSL needs to do well when the whistle blows at Rio Tinto Stadium.
Who starts, who’s suspended and who fills in for the missing impact players.
~~ Hahaha… This might be one of the best explanations I’ve ever seen in the game…. This defense is like when you get caught in a lie and you just continue to lie to try and get yourself out of it.
Skrtel had argued the action of standing on De Gea’s right shin as he chased a through-ball in the final seconds of Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Anfield was unintentional but an independent panel disagreed with him.
The 30-year-old has continued to profess his innocence even after his ban was confirmed, meaning he misses Premier League matches against Arsenal and Newcastle, as well as an FA Cup quarter-final replay at Blackburn.
“It feels strange because we appealed against those charges and still I was hit by a three-match ban,” he said. “I didn’t want to stamp on him. It was an accident and I didn’t do it on purpose. I don’t feel guilty. It was a long ball and he went towards me and I wanted to jump over him. Simple as that.”
The defender is unlikely to punished after he posted a picture of clowns on his Instagram account on Wednesday, which has been widely viewed as his comment on those who sat on the panel and decided the outcome of the hearing.
~~ Another television deal coming in hot on the backside of the CBA and following up on MLS’ previously announced TV deals with ESPN, Fox Sports, Univision, Sky Sports and EuroSport…. Wonder who’s next.
Keep an eye out on the final paragraph… MLS’ long term partnership with IMG, their new global media rights agent is going to be a game changer behind the scenes….
MLS is bound for Brazil.
Major League Soccer announced Friday that it has partnered with Brazilian broadcaster Globosat, Latin America’s biggest pay-TV operator, to televise league matches live in Brazil. A four-year deal has been agreed, marking the first time the Rio de Janeiro-based cable and satellite provider will have MLS broadcast rights.
The agreement will see Globosat televise at least two MLS regular-season matches per week, as well as the AT&T MLS All-Star Game, at least one Decision Day match, half of the MLS Cup Playoffs games and MLS Cup, in alternating years on Globosat networks SporTV 1, SporTV 2 and SporTV 3. In addition, Globosat will carry games, features and other content across its digital platforms.
This groundbreaking partnership amplifies MLS’ exposure across South America’s most populated country in conjunction with the current agreement with ESPN Brasil, a rights holder incorporated into ESPN’s MLS domestic agreement.
“This new agreement with Globosat is further illustration of the growing demand for Major League Soccer in the global media rights marketplace. With Flavio Augusto da Silva’s ownership of Orlando City SC and with over 15 Brazilian players in MLS, including Kaká, there is clearly an increased desire for MLS content in Brazil,” said Gary Stevenson, President and Managing Director, MLS Business Ventures in a statement. “We are excited to be partnered with such a powerful brand in Globosat and are confident that together we will create even greater awareness for the sport, our clubs and our stars.”
MLS will also retain the rights to one game per week for free-to-air TV (FTA TV), allowing for unprecedented coverage in Brazil. With Orlando City SC captain and Brazilian legend Kaká and three-time MLS Cup champion Juninho of the LA Galaxy leading the already-established contingent of Brazilian players in the League, Globosat will be a consistent destination for MLS fans in Brazil to follow the fortunes of their acclaimed compatriots.
The deal was negotiated with MLS’ new global media rights agent, IMG, as part of a continued focus to bring MLS to more fans around the world.
