Commissioner Rob Manfred unable to help break Dodgers TV stalemate

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ WASHINGTON — Rob Manfred remains about as frustrated as many Dodgers fans with the situation that has left many in Southern California unable to watch the Dodgers on TV.At his annual All-Star Game news conference, the commissioner of Major League Baseball said Tuesday that his office is still trying to influence the parties involved to resolve the situation, although he acknowledged they have little power in the matter.Manfred said he has tried two avenues. The first is simply to “convince” the parties that they should find some sort of agreement that would make the Dodgers games available to customers who don’t use Spectrum, which is the exclusive home of the broadcasts on SportsNet LA.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.“An agreement that gets full distribution,” Manfred said, “is obviously what Major League Baseball wants.” “Unfortunately, a lot of those creative ideas that we have, and we have some, affect the balance of power of the economic situation of (Spectrum) and (SportsNet LA), and it’s difficult to convince people to go along with any of these creative ideas,” Manfred said.Dodgers games have been unavailable to many viewers in the Southern California market since 2014. For non-Spectrum subscribers in Southern California, the situation remains status quo. Despite fans’ frustration, little financial incentive exists for Spectrum or its rival providers to change their negotiating stance.The Dodgers are getting their money from Spectrum, and Spectrum is getting its money from current subscribers. Other cable companies aren’t willing to pay to add SportsNet LA because their customers haven’t demanded it or shown willingness to pay higher rates for it. Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day Beyond that, Manfred said Major League Baseball has offered to use their “assets,” such as MLB Network on MLB.tv, to broadcast games. The problem is that essentially infringes on the exclusivity that Spectrum pays the Dodgers to maintain.Related Articles Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching last_img read more

No Redevelopment Plan on Tap, SB Mayor Says

first_imgBy John BurtonSEA BRIGHT – Mayor Dina Long is insisting that rumors about a planned redevelopment for the borough’s downtown business district are simply that – just rumors.“I’ll tell you what, I’m on the warpath about it,” she said, referring to the persistent flurry of rumors about what will happen to the stretch of Ocean Avenue businesses, as those locations work to recover from devastation caused by Sandy. “I’ve been nothing but up-front and transparent about saying over and over again there is no redevelopment plan.“Anything we come up with is going to be the product of working together,” Long said.What has Long so upset is the popular growing notion around the community that the area will be developed as an elevated commercial district.Another rumor is that new structures would be built at a higher elevation, as a preventive step for future storms and flooding. Plus, as the story goes, there would be an elevated boardwalk and parking available under the buildings.While there is no plan, Long said there is an artist’s rendering of the concept that has been making the rounds. The picture was done more than a decade ago by an architect at the behest of individual property owners. Following the effects of Sandy, with property owners – residential and business – and officials contemplating where to go from here, that image was taken down from the shelf by the architect and offered as a possibility. The image or the concept, “was unsolicited by the borough,” Long stressed, and “was never discussed by the borough council as a body.”The concept plan has not been discussed by the borough council but it has been discussed by the Recovery Action Team, she said. The team was formed after the storm and consists of borough citizens “to talk about the recovery of Sea Bright and talk about different ideas,” team member and Borough Councilman Marc Leckstein said.Leckstein, like Long, insists the idea does not represent anything under consideration or being advocated by the council.“It’s simply not true and we’ve made that clear at every single meeting we’ve been at,” he said.During a recent public meeting at Borough Hall, Long stood before the audience and tore up a copy of the drawing, telling them the concept wasn’t an actual plan or anything under consideration.“Whoever is putting it out there right now is working their own agenda,” Long said. “Whoever is putting it out there is directly sabotaging our long-term recovery pro­cess and causing a lot of cynicism and suspicion that’s threatening the unity of the community.“Wherever this is coming from, it’s starting to become harmful,” she said.Business owners who she has spoken to have weighed in on the concept, and “pretty much rejected it out of hand,” believing it would be too expensive an undertaking, she said.What is being discussed are various flood-proofing technologies, like the flood panels officials in New York City are considering instal­ling in the Wall Street area, the mayor said.She and other local officials are working with the Federal Emergency Manage­ment Agen­cy (FEMA) on its National Disaster Recovery Framework. It is a conceptual guide, drafted by FEMA, coordinating recovery efforts on all levels of government, according to FEMA information.Sea Bright is also in the process of hiring a professional disaster recovery specialist urban planner to help steer the borough through the process of creating a long-term recovery plan. Officials are looking for alternative ways to cover the cost of the planner, Long said.Long acknowledged there is “an offer on the table” for Donovan’s Reef. The popular beachfront bar on Ocean Avenue was destroyed by Sandy. Now, Besen and Associates and the property owner are in discussions for the sale, Long said.Besen has been inquiring about other Ocean Avenue commercial properties, as well, according to the mayor.Representatives from Besen have declined the mayor’s offer to appear at an upcoming town hall meeting as the firm has yet to make any purchases, she said.Besen and Associates, which has a Red Bank office in addition to New York locations, is described on its website as a realty investment brokerage, established in 1988 and with annual sales reaching $1 billion. The firm works with clients for the disposition of commercial real estate, according to the site.Repeated calls to the firm’s New York and Red Bank offices were not returned.last_img read more

Espanyol does keep its school open

first_imgSurely childhood still turns home on a makeshift soccer field, in which the table legs become goal posts imaginary, the furniture acts as rivals or teammates and the parents are that refereeing tandem that imparts justice depending on whether the throw is goal or crashes into a vase. The sequence repeats in many homes in this confinement, especially where young people share the passion for this sport.At Espanyol base football, one of the quarries that contributes the most footballers to Primera, are doing everything possible so that your players, of all ages, don’t “disconnect nor lose the link “, although” we think that the season may end “, as he comments Fran Navarro, coordinator of the parakeet quarry. “On Fridays we meet with the Optimization and Performance Department to create the microcycle of the next week. Then we transfer it to the trainers and they take care of do three sessions cwith players with a joint video call. It’s like they keep training, “he explains. The players first have a conditional (physical) work and another psychological to meet weekly, apart from the three sessions that the coach himself raises. “He usually performs dynamics in which the same goals that in a trainingor. For example, if you have to work the ball out, because the coach gives the boys some videos with different actions and they must correct what’s wrong and highlight what is good, “says Navarro. He also hup to 17 branch players have participated in talks with grassroots football.But Not only in the tactical aspects coaches abound but also in emotional. “I’ll give another example. Each player has what to define, and later definitions are read that each one has given and the companions have to know who it is. Players also use the Kahoot (application to make questionnaires) to answer questions about tactics, colleagues, general culture, football … And then they add points in a classification“Navarro says, stressing that for the smallest “we try to make these tasks adapt to your age. For example, we tell them to simulate one-on-one and draw it, and to look at the body position. “All the trainers they share their experiences on Thursday, by Friday reinforce those exercises that have gone well and discriminate what It has not been effective. This is part of the work the quarry continues to do. From Monday to Wednesday, it’s time to think about the future. The recruitment department review the videos that it has of the season, with the parties in the different categories and the rivals, to “make decisions2. The recruitment season and the planning of future staff has been interrupted by the measures adopted by the Covid-19.The Espanyol quarry tries adapt to circumstances , although this time the soccer field is the house itself.last_img read more
