Owner Jimmy Haslam: ‘Everybody’s on the same page.’

first_imgEver since Jimmy Haslam purchased the Cleveland Browns back in 2102, it’s been an endless cycle of hiring and firing of new coaches, player and general managers.For an organization to succeed in this business, stability is key. So this time Haslam believes that the right core of leadership is on board with Sashi Brown, Paul DePodesta and head coach Hue Jackson. Haslam was interviewed by ESPN Cleveland Wednesday morning and had some very favorable things to say about his new front office team.“For the first time since we’ve been here, everybody’s on the same page. Now we were all very upset Sunday night and Monday. In the NFL, it is a long season, and by Monday afternoon everybody had gotten the Philadelphia game and all of the distaste out of mouths and we’re ready to go on. We’ve got a big home opener [Sunday] against one of our traditional rivals, a very good team, a very good organization, Baltimore. You’ve got to forget about Philadelphia and get ready for Baltimore. We’re excited. It’s the home opener. It’s a big day.”Haslam also asked fans to have some patience with them, as he did in an open letter in January when he stated that they are dedicated to building a winning football team. He also praised Jackson, who was one of the hotter head coaching candidates in January.“I think we have one of the outstanding coaches in the NFL. He’s bright. He works hard. He connects well with players. He’s intensely competitive. He wants to win, and I’m convinced he will win. I think we’re blessed in our front office with Sashi, with Paul, with [vice presidents of player personnel] Andrew Berry [and] Ken Kovash to have another group of very smart, very talented people.“Hue relates well to everybody in the building and keeps everybody in the building fired up, which is important because your head coach is and should be the face of the organization, so he does a great job there. I think Sashi, Paul and team have a good plan in place. I am the most impatient person in the world. I would like to win 13 games this year, but we’ve set a course. We’ve got 17 rookies on the team. We’ve got 13 draft picks next year. We could have four of the top-40 picks. So we have a bright future in front of us.”Of course, after the unimpressive display on Sunday when the Browns were routed 29-10 by the Philadelphia Eagles, there was some uproar over the fact that QB Carson Wentz, who the Eagles picked in the draft after swapping picks with the Browns, could’ve been the starter in Cleveland instead of Robert Griffin III and Wentz could’ve been beating the Eagles instead. It’s a bit premature to claim that Wentz would’ve done what he did if he was on the Cleveland side of the ball and it was his first game of the season against a young, inexperienced defense.Hopefully, there are better days ahead for the Browns. but as of now, there are rumors that the front office has already soured on quarterback Robert Griffin III. We could get a better idea of that when RGIII is cleared to return to the field.

Tente and Suru primary schools will lock horns in both the U16 and U18 grand finals today at the Joe Keviame oval, Tente this weekend. The all schoolboys rugby league program, which is not a new concept to PNG has been played in most centres throughout the country. However, it is a different story for Mendi. The concept was introduced last year and it is in second year running. The junior development program has proven successful with a number of raw talents from the villages attending schools in the province, identified. It has also given them the opportunity to expose themselves and the schools and provinces they represent at the national schools rugby league carnival that coincides with the with the PNG Rugby Football League regional zones championships. With the benefits and privileges, it has paved the way forward for a bigger and better competition, in this case, the Mendi schoolboys league. The league has attracted 10 schools to participate in the competition that has now seen the two schools securing top spots in the U16 and U18 divisions for the grand final. Tente primary school, who have made the grand final for the second time, will face Suru primary school in what is expected to be a tough encounter.

Journal: Smelley’s memories of dealing with the media

first_imgNEW ORLEANS – Former Alabama H-back Brad Smelley shares with Paul Payne his reflections from three years ago when the Crimson Tide last played here with national championship implications. Smelley, currently a tight end with the St. Louis Rams, had a career day in the win over LSU with seven receptions. His insights give a glimpse from a player’s perspective of the week’s events leading up to the big game. Today is media day at the Superdome. What are your memories of that event? “Media day would always come around the middle of the bowl week so, to put it lightly, it was really looked at as a major distraction. I’m not really the type of guy that gets caught up in media hype and our team as a whole really wasn’t either. So I think we handled it pretty well. It’s a great experience though. Everyone has a part in college football and this was the media’s ‘Super Bowl’. They were happy to be there, we were happy to be there, it was a good time.” How did you deal with the deluge of reporters and cameras that day? “It seemed like everyone from ESPN to your local station in Eutaw, Alabama, was there. But Jeff Purinton and our media guys kept everything pretty orderly and efficient. It helps when you have Coach Nick Saban on your side. He had most of the media outlets scared of their shadows those days.” Do you get tired of answering the same questions over and over? “After a few interviews, everything can get a little redundant. I’m sure this year it will be all about the playoff situation or Ohio State’s third-string quarterback. Back then, it was all about ‘hey, can y’all score some point this time around please against LSU’? What was your favorite interview memory of that day? “I remember Tom Rinaldi of ESPN asking me how we were going to score against LSU’s All-Madden defense. I told him our only plan really was to get down on the goal line and put (center) William Vlachos at running back and pound the ball four times in a row and maybe we can score a touchdown this time around. So I had fun with it, as I think we all did.” Was it difficult to resume preparations for the championship game with the distractions? “We kept the main thing the main thing and didn’t get distracted. We stayed the course and kept preparing how we always did. Hopefully, our guys do that this year and come out of New Orleans with a victory on New Year’s Day.”last_img read more

Unchanged Kiwis confident for Bangladesh challenge

first_imgLONDON,  (Reuters) – New Zealand will stick to an unchanged line-up as they seek to build momentum in their second match of the World Cup against a fired-up Bangladesh at The Oval today. Vice-captain Tom Latham told reporters yesterday that the Black Caps expected to be put under pressure by opponents who upset South Africa in their opener at the same South London ground.Shakib Al Hasan“We’re going in with the same side. I think the way we played in the last game bodes a lot of confidence for the group,” he said.“I think the way the bowlers went about things, they challenged Sri Lanka pretty much from ball one and I’m sure the same side are looking to repeat that tomorrow.” New Zealand bundled Sri Lanka out for 136 in Cardiff on Saturday before crushing their opponents by 10 wickets in less than 17 overs.Fast bowlers Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson took three wickets each in the seamer-friendly conditions while batsmen Martin Guptill and Colin Munro took care of the chase.Henry and Munro seized their opportunities after injuries to seamer Tim Southee and batsman Henry Nicholls. Latham, whose media call was delayed due to road closures resulting from U.S. President Donald Trump’s state visit, sidestepped a question about whether the recovering pair had been considered.“They’re a day by day thing. They are certainly getting better as each day goes by, which is great,” he said.“It’s a long tournament so it’s important to make sure the guys are 100% fully fit by the time they get back on the park. Hopefully, there will be a chance for the next game.” New Zealand enlisted the services of left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel in the nets on Monday as they prepared to face the deliveries of Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.“It’s always valuable when you have a like-for-like bowling to you in the nets,” Latham said.“We know what sort of bowler Shakib is…he wasn’t in New Zealand in our last home summer series so I think it’s important that we get used to a left-arm spinner. “We’re certainly looking forward to the challenge of facing him tomorrow.”The match will be the first between the sides since Bangladesh’s tour of New Zealand was cut short in March after a gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 at two mosques in Christchurch.“It will be great to see them tomorrow,” Latham said. “I’m sure both sides are looking forward to getting out there on the cricket field around what we love doing.”last_img read more
