Cheap Authentic NFL Green Dolphins Jerseys From China

For the Dolphins, 2017 is about building on last season’s wild-card berth. But for the organization, it’s also been about connecting with the surrounding communities in ways no other franchise has ever done.
Miami’s pro football team stepped outside of the conventional charity box (think building neighborhood playgrounds and houses) by reaching out to and inviting youth teams from the city’s roughest sections, including inviting a squad co-founded by rapper and activist Luther Campbell, to watch Dolphins practices in person and interact with the team’s players. From there, the Dolphins have moved into the civic realm, looking to lead by example via a voter registration drive with some help from special guest Martin Luther King III.

The team aims to become the first in the nation’s history to have a roster of fully registered voters. The son of the civil rights icon has even been seen flagging down Dolphins players within the team’s facility to ensure registration forms were properly completed.

“Of course, the hope is that translates to encouraging more people across our nation to get engaged and to vote because a vote-less people, as dad said, is a powerless people,” King said Thursday, via the Miami Herald. “One of the most important steps that we can take is that short step to the ballot box.”

As the players take on-field steps toward another playoff appearance, and the game’s future generations watch with excitement and awe from the sidelines before interacting with their favorite players, the organization is leading a movement that encourages the nation’s citizens to use their constitutional right. The event was created through a relationship with RISE (The Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality) and the Drum Major Institute. The ultimate goal is to rally professional athletes, teams and leagues to promote civic participation in conjunction with National Voter Registration Day on Sept. 26.

Cheap Authentic Football New York Jets Jerseys China

The New York Jets are proving once again that they are the most gifted losing franchise in professional football.

Sure, there are NFL teams that lose in a more relentless manner than Gang Green. But to be a fan of New York’s other team is to experience the full gamut of despair. From heartbreak to hopeless, every yard of the field is covered.

We’ve obviously drifted into the “hopeless” category this offseason. Things reached a nadir this week with the team’s ill-timed decision to cut stalwart linebacker David Harris. Wide receiver Eric Decker isn’t far behind.

Since the end of their 2016 regular season, the Jets have cut ties with Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, Brandon Marshall, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Harris and, eventually, Decker. You can make a strong case that those were the six most important players on the roster this time last year. Whoa.

This isn’t a rebuild. It’s a full-scale demolition.

Jets fans, meanwhile, are left to pick up the pieces while trying to avoid the thunderously depressing realities of tweets like this:

For the record, this is inexcusable! The Jets have been around for six decades — how could they have the roster strength of an expansion team? In the words of Don Corleone, “How did things ever get so far?”

Out of respect for Jets fans, I believe answers are demanded right now. And that’s why I’ve called Mike Maccagnan, the general manager of the team, to appear in front of the Aggrieved Fan Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

(Disclaimer: I didn’t actually speak with Mike Maccagnan. I’m doing a cute little thing tying into topical current events in the United States. Just play along.)

END AROUND: I’d like to call this hearing to order.

Mr. Maccagnan, I appreciate your willingness to appear before the committee today, and more importantly, I thank you for your dedicated effort to fix the New York Jets. Your appearance speaks to the trust we have built over the years, and I’m looking forward to a very open and candid discussion.

MACCAGNAN: (groggy) How did I get here? What’s happening?

END AROUND: Never mind that. Mr. Maccagnan, the Jets have not appeared in the NFL’s postseason tournament since the 2010 season. They are coming off a 5-11 campaign and are widely believed to be in possession of the most talent-deprived roster in football entering 2017. How do you answer to that?

MACCAGNAN: We understand the frustration of the fans. We are making moves today with an eye on a better tomorrow for the New York Jets.

END AROUND: So you’re willing to admit under oath that the Jets are going to, ya know, suck this year?

MACCAGNAN: We’re going to do everything we can to put the team in the best position to compete every week.

END AROUND: But you’ve fired pretty much every notable veteran with proven playing ability. People are calling this the most blatant tank job in recent NFL history.

MACCAGNAN: I understand that.

END AROUND: Do you?

MACCAGNAN: Wait, what?

END AROUND: Never mind. Can you speak to the rumors that Todd Bowles has been in a sustained state of controlled sobbing since Tuesday afternoon?

MACCAGNAN: I can neither confirm nor deny that.

END AROUND: You gotta admit, Todd’s gettin’ boned pretty good here.

MACCAGNAN: I believe Todd Bowles is a fine teacher and a proven leader of men. As we embark on this exciting new frontier for the franchise, we’re proud to have Todd out in front.

END AROUND: But he’ll probably get fired if you guys go 2-14, right?

MACCAGNAN: Yeah, probably.

END AROUND: How about the quarterback position? You just dumped David Harris, a future Ring of Honor inductee, because he’s 33 and makes more than minimum wage. You’re in the process of disappearing Eric Decker for the crime of exiting his 20s. With that in mind, how can you justify starting a 38-year-old Josh McCown in Week 1?

MACCAGNAN: It is instrumental to have a respected veteran in the quarterback room with our younger players like Christian and Bryce. We are very lucky to have Josh in the building.

END AROUND: But can’t you say the same thing about Harris with the linebackers and Decker with the wide receivers? Surely, leadership is needed in various corners of the locker room. That explanation doesn’t make sense.

MACCAGNAN: Ummmm … Hey, look over there! (tries to escape but is stopped at the exit and escorted back to his seat)

END AROUND: Two years ago, you were named the NFL’s Executive of the Year. Now, people are writing columns wondering if your team could defeat the 2011 “Suck For Luck” Colts. Are you concerned about your job security at all?

MACCAGNAN: What, have you heard something?

END AROUND: Huh?

MACCAGNAN: Nothing … Just thought you might have, you know, heard something from someone. Yeah, I feel great about my job security. It’s Belichick-esque.

END AROUND: Which is your preferred hashtag: #ScamForSam, #HosinForRosen or #Failin4Allen?

MACCAGNAN: No comment.

END AROUND: OK, OK. Last one. What do you want your Jets legacy to be?

MACCAGNAN: That’s a tough question.

END AROUND: C’mon Mike. When you’re gray and old, and you’ve moved on from both the Jets and this sport, how do you want to be remembered? What do you want on your football tombstone?

MACCAGNAN: (long pause) Here lies Big Mac. (longer pause) He was better than Idzik.

END AROUND: You’re still in good shape there, Mike. Thank you.

Cheap Authentic NBA Los Angeles Lakers Lonzo Ball Jerseys

The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to select a guard with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA draft, perhaps UCLA’s Lonzo Ball, if the Boston Celtics pass on him with the No. 1 overall pick. With the Lakers adding a guard via the draft, there are rumors and speculation that one of their current backcourt players could be traded.

Rumor CentralAccording to Basketball Insiders, a source claims management is “increasingly open-minded” regarding the possibility of trading Jordan Clarkson and the potential of moving him by the June 22 draft.

Basketball writer Jordan Schultz adds to the Clarkson speculation by writing: “Per a source, [the Lakers] … are actively seeking out offers [for Clarkson].”

Clarkson, who turns 25 on Wednesday, signed a four-year contract last July and is owed $37.5 million through the 2019-20 NBA season. He is set to make $11.56 million for the 2017-18 season.

In 82 appearances, 19 starts, during the 2016-17 season, Clarkson averaged 14.7 points, 2.6 assists and 3.0 rebounds.

Besides Clarkson, D’Angelo Russell could also see his name in the rumor mill, as some NBA teams may believe that the Lakers might make him available. Lakers V.P. of basketball operations Magic Johnson indicated last week that forward Brandon Ingram, the No. 2 overall pick in 2016, is the only untouchable member of L.A.’s current roster.

Hockey Cheap Authentic Washington Capitals Adidas Jerseys Store

ARLINGTON, Va. — Brian MacLellan has the power to completely remake the Washington Capitals in the wake of another early playoff exit and he faces a salary-cap crunch that would justify it.

The general manager doesn’t expect anything so drastic. He said Tuesday that he expects to tweak and retool on the fly rather than overhauling the roster of a team that won the Presidents’ Trophy in back-to-back seasons but hasn’t made it past the second round in the Alex Ovechkin era.

“I don’t think it makes sense in my mind just to blow it up or make a major change,” MacLellan said. “It’s a lot easier to make this team worse than it is better.”

Trade Ovechkin or All-Star center Nicklas Backstrom? Not in the cards right now. Fire Barry Trotz? Maybe check back next season for the coach with one year left on his contract.

Changes are coming to the Capitals by default because wingers T.J. Oshie and Justin Williams and defensemen Karl Alzner and Kevin Shattenkirk are unrestricted free agents, and young players Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, Andre Burakovsky and Nate Schmidt are the priority as restricted free agents with raises coming. All that, plus a salary cap that isn’t likely to rise much from $73 million, means it will be impossible to keep this band together after an inexplicably flat Game 7 loss in the second round to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“I think we’re going to be a good team still,” MacLellan said. “I don’t know that we’ll be at this level. We’ll be competitive. I’m not sure what happens.”

MacLellan acknowledged the Capitals “spent three years building up to that Game 7″ and talked openly about a two-year Stanley Cup window that might’ve slammed shut in the aftermath of the season-ending shutout loss at home to Pittsburgh earlier this month. Washington still has a Vezina Trophy-caliber goaltender in Braden Holtby, even though his playoffs were disappointing, and the talent to make the playoffs.

Now the question is how to get over the hump in the playoffs. MacLellan didn’t exactly give Trotz a ringing endorsement for his postseason moves and wants to see organizational improvements moving forward.

“Some stuff has come up that I obviously I need to hold people accountable for and make changes going forward both on the players side and on the coaching side,” MacLellan said. “I think it’s easy in hindsight for me to be critical, but the coaches make coaching decisions as they go and they have to be held accountable for their results also.”

MacLellan wouldn’t expand on what he means, though he didn’t seem inclined to strip Ovechkin of the team captaincy. After a “down year” in which he had the fewest goals of his career in an 82-game season with 33, the Russian superstar is “going to have to think of ways he can evolve into a player that still has a major impact on the game” by training to get faster as he turns 32, MacLellan said.

Ovechkin might not be a top-line player anymore, and while MacLellan didn’t close the door on trading the face of the franchise, it’s not likely — especially given that there are four years left on his contract at an almost-unmovable $9.5 million cap hit.

“He’s been a big part of where we’re at as an organization and just to casually say, ‘Let’s trade him for what for who,’ I don’t think it makes sense from an organizational point of view,” MacLellan said. “Maybe at some point if there’s a legitimate hockey deal that came available, but I don’t know that that’s where we’re at right now.”
There’s lingering uncertainty about whether the Capitals can afford to re-sign Oshie, who tied for the team lead with 33 goals, depending on what the salary cap is. And MacLellan could be managing for his own job moving forward, too.

Because of the cap and the likely departures of Williams, Alzner, Shattenkirk and Daniel Winnik and the loss of a player to Vegas in the expansion draft — maybe backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer — MacLellan may have a younger team next season. He may end up counting on prospects to fill the holes. It’s now up to him to make sure the team remains a contender.

“It’s a good team, and there’s issues, too,” MacLellan said. “There’s some issues, and they need to be addressed internally.”
