Sport and Recreation Minister Grant Robertson lauded the inclusiveness of this year's Games. "How many sports we competed in and how much money was voted?" The people who have been critical are also justified. The Commonwealth Games were in the United Kingdom just four years ago, when Glasgow hosted, and were in England as recently as 2002 in Manchester.
Last season, the 33-year-old lured fellow safety Tony Jefferson and running back Danny Woodhead to Baltimore. While they haven't landed some of their targets, they did sign John Brown and Michael Crabtree to deals this offseason. Bryant had a cap hit of $16.5 million for each of the next two seasons but hadn't lived up to his contract while averaging just 678.3 yards in the past three years.
That discussion has come about in the past few months with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' disappointment about the team not keeping wide receiver Jordy Nelson , and with the departure of quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt "without consulting me." There's still incentive for both sides to strike a deal sooner rather than later, but there's also certainly no rush, given Rodgers' contract runs through next season.
Fumbling Xherdan Shaqiri's shot in the final 11 minutes of the match enabled Crouch to ghost in and convert from close range, nearly costing West Ham valuable points in the business end of the season.

After the game, Popovich praised Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge , but the comments felt rather pointed. Then, we would have to decide what's going on from there.

Southampton led Chelsea 1-0 in the first-half at St Mary's when, shortly before the break, Alonso trod on the back of Long's leg, pressing his studs into the forward's right calf. The Burnley and Southampton games are particularly important for Chelsea and head coach Antonio Conte, as they try to salvage what has been a disappointing season.
Still, there's only one Aguero and there's no doubt City missed him badly in the two Champions League defeats to Liverpool earlier this month. City have become champions with five games to spare and Aguero admits it is relief to win it with no stress, like when his stoppage time goal in the final game of 2012 sealed the most dramatic Premier League win history.

Arsenal fans have been calling for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette to be paired together in attack at every opportunity, and in the 14th minute the reason why became clear as the pair linked up to open the scoring. It appears as though Arsenal were in favour of the technology being implemented however, with Wenger raising the issue again after Newcastle beat Arsenal .
Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Raphael Varane were also spared the trip to La Rosaleda. "I do not think their future is in danger here", Zidane insisted. Zidane has prefered Benzema as a partner for Ronaldo up front this season but the Frenchman has managed only one goal in his last nine games. Chelsea have reportedly assured Asensio they will double his current €4.5m salary and are prepared to go as high as €150m to bring him to London.
Eight minutes later he had his second when a loose ball fell his way from a set-piece, but not before Willian had smartly found an open Eden Hazard in the box three minutes prior - Chelsea went on to hold their one-goal advantage until full-time.
Hart has already lost his place as England's No 1 and, at this rate, he must be in danger of being cast adrift from the squad that Southgate takes to the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. We've had some really good games and we've just been really unfortunate with Lady Luck. I think the important thing was to make sure we didn't lose tonight.
Creed said the opening of the market will provide "excellent" opportunities for Irish farmers and processors and is a key development amid the uncertainties linked to Brexit. Rising demand, combined with the expense of domestically produced meat, means China is looking overseas for its beef.

Fakhar Zaman, Faheem Ashraf, Imam Ul Haq , Usman Salahuddin and Saad Ali are the five players who got their debut call from the national selectors. Having a tally of 10,742 runs at a staggering average of 55.37, Fawad is far more experienced than Imam, who might have made an impressive worldwide cricket debut against Sri Lanka in October a year ago, was just able to muster 222 runs at a below-average of 27.75 in five games.
The solo shot was his eighth of the season and came on the first pitch from Mets starter Jacob deGrom . Of all the feats Bryce Harper has pulled off in his six-year Major League Baseball career, perhaps none has been quite as remarkable, impressive and downright preposterous than what he accomplished during Monday night during the Nationals-Mets game.
After Man City defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Saturday, Man United needed a win over West Brom to keep the slim title hopes alive. By completing the job after 33 games, City have emulated the achievement of United, who secured the crown with the same number of matches to spare in 2001.
James van Riemsdyk also scored and Mitch Marner and Morgan Rielly added two assists each ti help Toronto pull to 2-1 in the best-of-seven set. Toronto's defense has been sliced and diced, and its penalty kill has been embarrassed by the ferocity and efficiency of the Boston attack.
If you're good, they will watch. With a roster full of capable defenders (Covington, Simmons, Saric, Marco Belinelli , J.J.to an extent, etc) who have the uncanny ability to constantly switch onto different opposing players, they must continue to give little airspace to shooters and force them off the 3-point line.

Mainz moved above free-falling Freiburg in the table and up to 15th, ending their own six-game winless run in the process. In the dying seconds of the first half, Mainz had an appeal for handball turned down by referee Guido Winkmann, with the scores still at 0-0.
That strike spared the blushes of Hart, whose fumble allowed Peter Crouch - another second-half substitute - to put Stoke ahead in the 79th at the Olympic Stadium.

Mourinho said: "We were masters in complicated football, everything was complicated". They've now won three of the last seven PL titles available.

A listless batting display by Gautam Gambhir and Co means that they have lost third match of the IPL 2018. Narine, who became the first overseas spinner to take 100 IPL wickets , took three wickets for 18 runs in three overs, while Yadav finished with figures of three for 32 in 3.2 overs.

The only time Sunday's result was ever in any true danger came as the Cavs whittled a 23 point Pacers' lead down to seven early in the fourth quarter. The Cavaliers are clearly going to have to get more from guys like Rodney Hood , George Hill , Love, Jeff Green and company to square the series.
He may face fifth seed Dominic Thiem in the second round, but the sterner test is a potential tie against Nadal in the quarter-finals. "I love this event and the weather has been good".

The Los Angeles Police Department , LAPD just seized $700,000 worth of counterfeit makeup for traces of feces. Counterfeit makeup isn't always easy to spot, but as a general rule of thumb - if it's too good to be true, it probably is.
