first_img Martinez on Wednesday asked for 24 hours to consider his next move, but after meeting Whelan again on Thursday it is the chairman who has now gone away to consider whether he can match his manager’s ambitions. “We have had a good, constructive talk – nothing about wages it is all about the club and can we move it forward in terms of the training facilities and youth development,” Whelan told Press Association Sport. “It is all tied up in that. He wants to do certain things and I’m hoping I can assist in that but I want a day or two to look at it.” Whelan added: “I don’t want to say yes until I’ve had time to think about it. It will be Monday before I can promise anything.” Wigan are already revamping their academy to meet Elite Player Performance Plan Category One standards but Martinez appears to want to put deep-rooted changes in place to provide a solid base for the club in the future. Following their relegation from the Barclays Premier League, the feeling outside the club is that the Latics will struggle to get back into the top flight, but Martinez, whose stay at the club would signal his confidence they can make a swift return, wants Premier League standards applied throughout regardless. “It is nothing to do with his personal benefit – we both want the club to be better,” added Whelan. “If he wanted to move he would have said: ‘I’m going’. He is just bothered about the future of the club.” Martinez has been linked with the vacancies at Everton and Stoke and it was expected that would be the topic of conversation at Thursday’s meeting. But Whelan insists he is not worried about the future of his manager, with whom he has a close relationship. “We are not losing one bit of sleep over it,” he added. “It was quite positive yesterday and I’m hoping, whatever the decision we get, it will be in the interests of Wigan Athletic.” Press Associationcenter_img The future of Wigan manager Roberto Martinez will not be decided until next week but chairman Dave Whelan is positive about holding on to the Spaniard.last_img read more

first_imgThe European Tour season is set to resume in July with a six-week ‘UK Swing’ tournament and run to December.The British Masters in Newcastle from 22-25 Julyis the first of six events, two of which will be at Celtic Manor.Later in the year, the Scottish Open is set to run from 8-11 Octoberwith the Tour’s flagship PGA Championship event the following week at Wentworth, while other tournaments are to be revealed. The DP World Tour Championship ends the season in Dubai from 10-13 December.The European Tour was suspended on 8 March because of the coronavirus pandemic. In a statement, the Tour said the return of tournaments was subject to “stringent safety and testing protocols”.Keith Pelley, European Tour chief executive, said: “We have taken a measured approach in reassessing our schedule, informed every step of the way by our medical advisers and government guidance.“As golf’s global Tour, diversity is ordinarily one of our biggest strengths, but in this instance it has become one of our biggest challenges.“Initially, therefore, playing in clusters, in one territory, is the best option in terms of testing, travel and accommodation.”“Pelley also thanked sponsors and organisers for showing “flexibility and understanding of the current global situation”.The English Championship in Hertfordshire is set to clash with the rescheduled first major of the year, the US PGA Championship, which has been moved to 6-9 Augustand is being held at Harding Park, San Francisco.The six-week ‘UK Swing’ event will see £500,000 from the European Tour being distributed equally between local charities of tournament hosts and charities chosen by the leading 10 players in a mini Order of Merit run across those six tournaments.Pelley added that the European Tour will preserve players’ exempt status for the 2021 season.He said: “We do not want to put anyone in a position whereby they feel they have no choice other than to play in certain events in order to protect their livelihood.“Similarly, the feeling was that it was not fair to disadvantage any member who might want to play in an event but who might not be able to due to ongoing travel restrictions.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_img Published on November 28, 2012 at 3:00 am Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+ The magic number is 3,000.If the Syracuse Silver Knights can get that many paying customers to each of their 13 home games at the Oncenter War Memorial Arena, the team becomes profitable. The future then becomes more certain and more promising for professional soccer in the city of Syracuse.“If every soccer person just went to one game, any person that had anything to do with soccer,” Silver Knights President and head coach Tommy Tanner said, “you know, a kid playing soccer or played in the men’s league or played in the coed league, went to one game, we’d sell out all 13 home games.”But with an operating budget between $500,000 and $600,000, getting “more butts in the seats” is an exercise in indirect marketing. Billboards and TV commercials are out of the question for the Silver Knights. They’re too expensive. If the Silver Knights don’t reach that magic number of 3,000, though, they run the risk of joining their outdoor predecessors, the Syracuse Salty Dogs, and hundreds of other now-defunct teams in the graveyard of American soccer clubs.The Silver Knights front office aimed to sell about 750 season tickets for this season. Current sales are at about 460, said Nick Michalkow, director of group sales and fan services. The team originally planned to raise $500,000 through shares in the Syracuse Pro Sports Group, LLC. Shares are still available, but Vice President of Sales and Marketing Allen Laventure said he could not comment on the number sold.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSo the four-man, full-time front office staff has no choice but to get creative, save costs and hope fans show up.“For us it’s not about the 13 home games, it’s about being active and in the community 365 days a year,” Laventure said.On Black Friday, that meant sending the team to ring bells and work the donation kettle at Destiny USA. Other nights it means the team’s jersey color changes for a cause. And in an attempt to reach out to children and families, the Silver Knights carry out a three-part school assembly program known as the Knights’ Code, in which players speak to students about health and wellness, diversity and the dangers of bullying.“It’s being involved in the community where people are saying, ‘Wow, these guys are doing a lot, we see them everywhere,’” Laventure said. “And that’s one of the things that we’ve been fortunate of when I talk to sponsors they’re like, ‘Oh my gosh I was at this run’ or ‘My son came home with a worksheet from you guys.’”The Silver Knights are not bogged down by the same financial troubles that doomed the Salty Dogs, which were also part-owned by Pete Ramin, who is now a Silver Knights co-owner and vice president of operations.The Salty Dogs performed well at the gate, drawing the third-highest attendance in the 16-team USL First Division (USL-1) in 2004 despite splitting home games between P&C Stadium — now Alliance Bank Stadium — and Liverpool High School.But mere entry into the league cost $500,000, with $300,000 going toward a territory fee to the Rochester Raging Rhinos and $200,000 paid directly as a league fee. The high startup costs, in addition to a pricey lease agreement with P&C Stadium, caused the team to bleed money and cease operations in October 2004 after just two seasons.By contrast, in late 2009, USL-1 Senior Director Chris Economides reached out to Tanner about bringing a franchise  to Syracuse. There was no territory fee despite the eventual presence of another Rochester club, the Lancers. Instead of the $200,000 league fee that the Syracuse Pro Sports Group paid for the Salty Dogs, Syracuse Pro Sports, LLC, only paid a $50,000 fee for the Silver Knights franchise.Tanner and Michalkow estimated the Salty Dogs’ operating costs are $1.2 million. And while the Silver Knights’ are about half that, the second-year franchise must expand its fan base to thrive.“We definitely missed a couple markets last year,” said Michalkow, who is in his first year with the franchise.He and Laventure pointed to the Latino — 8.3 percent of the city’s population — and young adult demographics as areas of weakness for the club. So this year, the Silver Knights are writing game stories for CNY Latino.The Silver Knights also continue to push for Syracuse University students to attend games as Laventure reaches out to students in the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics.“I think that college students, if they came and saw a game, would actually enjoy themselves,” he said. “Getting them off the Hill has been our biggest challenge.”Ultimately the Silver Knights target families as the foundation of their fan base. Laventure worked for the Syracuse Crunch, now the Tampa Bay Lightning’s AHL affiliate, from 1994 to 2000 as an account executive and director of youth hockey programs. Game days for the Crunch in those days mirror what the Silver Knights are attempting to create now: loud music, families and an overall party atmosphere.In 2004, when Tanner was still playing for the financially spiraling Salty Dogs, he attended his first Crunch game. He immediately thought “this would be a perfect place for indoor soccer.”The Silver Knights front office still sees hope in the Crunch model.“Our thought process was, ‘Let’s get people hooked on the event and they’ll come back,’” Laventure said. “And now you look 18 years later and the Crunch is — people who were kids then, well now those kids are now taking their kids.“So essentially they’ve instantaneously doubled their audience and their appeal because they have three generations going to their games instead of just two.”The front office is banking on keeping costs low, filling seats and getting the franchise off the ground and into year three, a milestone the Salty Dogs never reached.“I’ve never heard of one person not enjoying one of our games,” Tanner said. “You know, go to the game and go ‘That sucks, that’s not what I expected.’ Usually they say ‘That’s not what I expected, it was a lot better.’” Commentslast_img read more

Syracuse.com reported Dunkelberger will transfer after graduating in the winter.He hasn’t appeared in a game this year.Dunkelberger transferred to Syracuse after playing his 2014 freshman season at Pierce College. He played in one game under Scott Shafer’s staff in 2015. Then when Dino Babers arrived, Dunkelberger switched over to defensive end for spring practice. He moved back to tight end during training camp and is currently listed as a tight end.With Dunkelberger’s departure, the Orange is currently thin at tight end looking ahead to next year. Kyle Kleinberg, a sophomore, is the only one in the position group who is set to return. Kendall Moore, Josh Parris and Cameron MacPherson are all on their final seasons of eligibility. Kleinberg came to Syracuse as a preferred walk-on linebacker. He made the switch to tight end this summer.Tyler Provo exited last spring’s practices as the fourth-string tight end but was medically disqualified.

first_imgAcross any level of sports, college athletes have the least amount of time to prove themselves. Think about it: If they want to advance to a higher level or even just be remembered, their four years as a collegiate athlete must be remarkable and realize every last ounce of talent.As the NCAA playoffs approach, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team is preparing to bring its season to a close. Whether it ends in the first round against Harvard University this Saturday or after a national championship, six seniors must hang up their cardinal and white jerseys for a last time and hope they made the most of their time at the University of Wisconsin. One of these seniors is goaltender Alex Rigsby, whose four more-than-remarkable years in Madison cemented her name in the record books, highlight reels and fans’ memories.Long before arriving at UW, Rigsby displayed both a love and talent for the sport, one unrivaled by other extracurricular activities.“When I was sixth or seventh grade, I was playing soccer and realized that I just wanted to play hockey, and it was too much to do both sports,” Rigsby recalled. From that point on, she was, in her words, “full-time hockey.” The senior Badger goaltended solely on boys’ teams growing up, something she attributes her competitive nature to, along with what made the game fun for her in the first place.Head coach Mark Johnson added that from a coaching perspective, the curly-haired goalie’s history of blocking boys’ slap shots and breakaways so successfully is what made her a standout to scouts.“The impressive thing with [Rigsby] was she played AAA Midget hockey with the boys,” Johnson explained. “For a female to do that, especially at that position, indicates that somebody thinks she’s pretty good. She also went down to the Chicago Steel’s camp and got drafted in the USHL, and her being able to do those things with that level of competition means she’s got the make of being a pretty good goalie.”A “pretty good goalie” would prove to be an understatement. Upon arriving at UW during the 2010-2011 season and becoming a part of women’s team for the first time, Rigsby took no time to adjust to the collegiate level of competition. She earned a shutout during her Wisconsin debut, was named the WCHA’s Rookie of the Week on two different occasions and was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Week once. What’s more, the moment Rigsby still considers to be the biggest of her time at UW came at the end of that first season.“I think the biggest high of my career has been winning the national championship my freshman year,” Rigsby said. “I came in here and we had a fantastic team, a fantastic season, and we finished off strong and that was huge for our team.”It was an impressive start to say the least and Rigsby was just getting warmed up.Over the next three years, the Delafield native only added to her successes. In the conference alone, she went on to be named to the All-WCHA Academic Team twice (2012-2014), received Defensive Player of the Week nine more times, was on the roster of both the All-WCHA first and second teams (2013-2014, 2012-2013 respectively) and once was the league’s Goaltending Champion (2011-2012).In Wisconsin’s own history, her name frequents the record book often enough to make you wonder if there were two or three Alex Rigsbys. She ranks first in overall saves (3,271) and in a single season (1,044) as the only UW goalie to record over 1,000 saves in one season. As if that isn’t enough, she occupies first place in the UW records for the number of games played and minutes played in a career. She is also tied for second for most points scored by a goaltender (3).But several challenges were sprinkled throughout her successes along the way. She faced surgeries and injuries even before freshman year started, dealt with some tough family issues last season and even had to work at earning her spot back this September after being cut while she tried out with the Olympic team last year. Johnson mentioned that watching her battle through so many different obstacles is something that makes him proud of Rigsby and is why she wears the “C” on her jersey in her senior year, the only goaltender in UW history to ever do so.“I think with some of the adversities that she’s had to face she’s been able to persevere and come back stronger because of some of those things,” Johnson said of his netminder. “For a lot of people those are life-changing things, and you never know how you’re going to react. She certainly has done it in a very positive and very impressive way, and is well respected in our locker room. That’s why we felt comfortable with her being captain this year.”Johnson looks to be right about Rigsby’s resiliency. After having to battle for her spot back before the season started, the senior spent the rest of the season adding a few more records of her own to UW history, tying two past Badger goaltenders for save percentage (.941) and surpassing Olympian and former Badger Jessie Vetter’s overall wins record at Wisconsin. If UW defeats Harvard this Saturday in the first round of the NCAA playoffs, Rigsby will have attained her 100th career win—a mile marker only two other goaltenders have achieved in the history of collegiate women’s hockey. When asked how she was feeling about potentially pushing her total over into the triple digits this weekend, the senior seemed more concerned with winning for the sake of moving on than for any personal gain, maybe showing that early-learned competitive edge from her boys’ hockey days.“I’m super excited to play Harvard,” Rigsby said without hesitation. “It’s going to be competitive, and fans are going to see a very good game between two good teams.”Being at the tail end of a memorable college career, you can’t help but wonder what’s in store next for Alex Rigsby. She mentioned she was thinking about the national team, getting a job, maybe playing over in Europe at some point and even just getting an internship somewhere for the summer. But even with no solidified plans for what happens after her last season with the Badgers, Rigsby said she knew one thing for sure.“I definitely at this point know I want to keep playing hockey. There’s no way I can’t keep playing.”last_img read more
