Since AJ McCarron played his final game for Alabama in the 2014 Sugar Bowl, he and Nick Saban have had a difference of opinion on several matters.Here’s the latest example of the two not seeing eye-to-eye.In a radio interview this week, the Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback said Alabama doesn’t have “true leaders like we had last year” after the seventh-ranked Crimson Tide’s 23-17 upset loss Saturday at now-No. 3 Ole Miss.Saban’s response?“I don’t know how AJ would really know,” Saban said during the SEC coaches conference call Wednesday. “I don’t necessarily see that as the case.”So as Alabama (4-1, 1-1) prepares for Saturday’s game at Arkansas (3-2, 1-2) Saban isn’t buying that his team lacks true leadership and is defending the guy who has replaced McCarron — Blake Sims.“We have several guys who have played a lot of football around here and do a good job,” Saban said. “I think sometimes people look at the quarterback as the guy who has to be the leader, and sometimes when you have a new quarterback and that guy is really concerned about what he’s supposed to do, maybe he doesn’t look to be perceived as the guy that’s affecting other people.“I actually think Blake does a pretty good job. He’s very well-liked by his teammates. Very positive, high-energy guy. Has shown leadership.”@LivingCrimson@TheGameWDGM never once criticized Blake. He’s an excellent leader by example I said he now needs to take the vocal lead role— AJ McCarron (@10AJMcCarron) October 8, 2014However, I have an idea how McCarron could come up with his conclusion.McCarron is just months removed from being the central figure in the Alabama locker room. Having been the starting quarterback on back-to-back national championship teams, McCarron still has a strong presence at Alabama even if he isn’t taking snaps.He still knows players on the team. I’m sure he’s talked to some of them. So he has a different insight that Saban does. Players tells players things they won’t tell coaches. McCarron is watching the games and seeing how players are reacting.Plus the current players actually are expressing concerns about the leadership. On Monday, Alabama senior fullback Jalston Fowler made it clear how the leaders aren’t doing their part to make sure Alabama doesn’t make mistakes in practice.“That’s when the leaders got to step up and talk and tell them you can’t have that out there,” he said. “Sometimes we just sit back and just allow stuff to happen and don’t say anything. We see we got to pick it up and be more outspoken.”Ironically, Alabama entered the season talking about how the leadership became disjointed at the end of last season as Alabama lost its last two games at Auburn and to Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl.This was in reaction to McCarron saying last spring the younger players didn’t fully buy in.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Not to blame, but what you really look at and check is the leadership. If the leadership is consistent, then who’s going to follow them are the younger guys because that’s all they see.“The leadership was good, but towards the end, it kind of got divided, and only a few people were being heard. The people that needed be heard weren’t speaking, so everyone kind of separated themselves and pointed the finger at the younger guys.”Tide junior linebacker Reggie Ragland said Jones is one of the team leaders along with senior linebacker Trey DePriest and junior safety Landon Collins, but they are not the marquee players on this team. Amari Cooper, T.J. Yeldon and Sims are. Players tend to follow those who are producing the most, so Alabama needs those guys to take greater ownership of the team.With that being said, here’s the deal.You have a quarterback with strong voice for what he accomplished as a player at Alabama having an opinion that isn’t lining up with how the most powerful man in the state of Alabama feels about his program. McCarron has never bitten his tongue. Saban is a proud and prideful coach. So this likely won’t be the last time they don’t see eye-to-eye on a subject.When McCarron voiced criticism of the younger players not buying in, Saban responded by saying he loves McCarron, but he also said older players need to have “tolerance” and make a “commitment” to helping younger players succeed. The manner in which he said it gave indication he wasn’t too happy with McCarron’s comments.Then heading into the NFL draft, McCarron said he sacrificed a great deal for Alabama by playing through injuries. Saban responded by saying McCarron never told him about them, but credited McCarron for being a good leader. So here they go again.Leadership is mostly questioned when a team loses. So Saban has to address it or it will become a recurring theme throughout the rest of the year and a topic of discussion for McCarron on the radio.“I don’t think we played real well last week, for whatever reason,” Saban said. “I don’t know if that’s all leadership. I’m sort of responsible for all that, as we all are as coaches and players to make sure we’re ready to play our best against good teams in tough environments on the road.”

The match starts at 21:00 and will be played at the national stadium.Both teams started the season with two draws and can no longer wait to record their first success. The newcomers from the capital made 2: 2 with CSKA, and then stole a point during their visit to Beroe. Arda missed a lead of two goals against Montana and finally dramatically reached 3: 3, and a week ago beat Levski, but the match ended 1: 1.The mentor of the hosts Krassimir Balakov has no serious personnel problems. Last season’s goal scorer Andon Gushterov is still injured, but the team has the ageless Martin Kamburov in attack.Radoslav Vassilev and Milen Zhelev are in question for Arda. The two did not appear in a game against Levski and are more likely to miss today’s match. However, the former national Mikhail Alexandrov returned to the field after a long absence and will play again today.The curious thing is that Arda is the only team from the current composition of our elite division, against which Martin Kamburov did not sign. Last season he missed a penalty against this rival with the team of Beroe.Central defender Ventsislav Vassilev will face his former team. In 2019 he played only 2 matches for the team from Kardzhali, after which he signed with FC CSKA 1948.Spas Delev will try to break his goal drought, which has been going on for almost a year. He scored for the last time on August 30 last year in the success of Arda with 3: 2 against Slavia in Sofia.
(Updated: Friday at 12:05 p.m.)BALTIMORE — After leaving his start with right groin discomfort last Saturday in New York, Orioles pitcher Bud Norris was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to Friday’s doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays.The right-hander underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam on Thursday that revealed a strain that will force him to miss at least one start. Norris was still experiencing discomfort while completing a bullpen session on Wednesday that prompted the Orioles to recommend further testing. Norris is eligible to be activated from the DL on July 7.“When [the doctors] said it was going to be four or five days before he can get on the hill again, waiting around isn’t very beneficial,” manager Buck Showalter said. “We feel confident that we can resolve it in the DL period.”Showalter will not need another starter until Tuesday as Kevin Gausman was summoned to pitch the first game of Friday’s doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays with Chris Tillman starting the nightcap in Norris’ place. Because of Thursday’s off-day, the Orioles will send lefty Wei-Yin Chen to the hill on Saturday and right-hander Miguel Gonzalez on Sunday to conclude the four-game series. Ubaldo Jimenez will then pitch Monday’s series opener against the Texas Rangers on four days’ rest.Gausman served as the club’s 26th man roster exemption for the day-night doubleheader and will be returned to Triple-A Norfolk after the game to fulfill his 10-day requirement in the minors. He is expected to be recalled in time to make his next start on Wednesday, but he is not an option to pitch on short rest for Tuesday’s game, according to Showalter.The Orioles could look at current long reliever T.J. McFarland to make a spot start on Tuesday before settling into a five-man rotation with Gausman occupying Norris’ original slot.“Right now, we’re probably looking for a break from the weather,” quipped Showalter, who added that newly-signed Norfolk lefty Randy Wolf isn’t ready to be an option for Tuesday. “We’ll be alright. We’ve got some good options.”Right-handed relief pitcher Evan Meek was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to take Norris’ place and serve as an extra arm in the bullpen for the twin bill. Meek is 2-0 with three saves and a 2.79 ERA in 17 games for the Tides and has gone 0-2 with a 6.39 ERA in 13 appearances for the Orioles this seasonWith third baseman Manny Machado’s looming suspension, the Orioles must play a man down in his absence and cannot use his spot on the roster, which led to them recalling Meek to use Norris’ roster slot for the time being with that spot expected to eventually address Machado’s absence. When a decision is made on Machado, the club will add an extra infielder — presumably in place of Meek or another reliever — and Jemile Weeks will likely be recalled as he traveled to Baltimore on Thursday night.Though Norris isn’t expected to be sidelined for long, the news is a tough break for the 29-year-old as he’s been the club’s most consistent starting pitcher this season. In 14 starts, Norris owns a 7-5 record with a 3.62 ERA in 87 innings and has struck out 60 while walking 28 batters.
Psyonix has announced that Snickers is returning as a sponsor of the Rocket League Championship Series ahead of its sixth season.The chocolate bar brand joined the RLCS in March, first sponsoring Season 5 of the prestigious Rocket League competition.Here’s what Psyonix said in the announcement: “We know that after the unbelievable game 7 finish at last season’s World Championship, RLCS fans all around the world were hungry for more; luckily one of our returning sponsors knows just how to help. We are excited to announce that Snickers will return to the RLCS as an official sponsor for Season 6!”Season 6 of the RLCS will see a boost in prize pool, now sitting at $1,000,000 (£768,335). This is double the amount of money that was up for grabs over the course of the fifth season.Mobil 1, a synthetic motor oil brand, is another returning sponsor for Season 6 of the series. It’s the competition’s longest-standing sponsor, so it’s not too much of a surprise to see that particular partnership continue.Rocket League Championship Series returns for the new season on September 8th, broadcast live on Twitch. It’s not been revealed if other Season 5 sponsors, Old Spice and State Farm, will be returning as of yet.RLCS isn’t the only way in which Snickers is involved in the industry. In January of this year, the snack brand was announced as the official chocolate of North American organisation FlyQuest.Esports Insider says: Last season’s World Championship demonstrated just how entertaining and gripping Rocket League can be, and that reflected in all of the positivity surrounding the event afterwards. It’s not a surprise that Snickers wants to be involved in the RLCS when there’s a healthy fan base following its every move.Join our Discord Server!

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — HBO has formally picked up Robert Downey Jr.’s reboot of the legal drama Perry Mason.The project has two new writers and is rapidly moving forward with Downey Jr. set to play Erle Stanley Gardner’s classic character, an unorthodox private investigator and defense attorney named of course, Perry Mason.Gardner created the character in the early 1930s, and since then, Mason has been featured in more than 80 novels and short stories, a radio series and six feature films in the 1930s.Mason was also brought to life in the early 1950s as a comic strip, but perhaps the best known version of Perry Mason was the Emmy Award-winning television series starring Raymond Burr that aired between 1957 and 1966.This is Downey Jr.’s biggest television series commitment since his role on Fox’s Ally McBeal some 17 years ago.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
