Newcastle fans vent Kinnear fury

first_img McIntyre, who was repeatedly heckled, said: “You are asking why Joe Kinnear didn’t come here. He was going to come. Since Joe was appointed, he has never had a day off. He was going to come up on Sunday night and going to come here.” He continued: “I spoke to Joe Kinnear. He was waiting to be picked up by Graham Carr, who lives in Northampton. He was picking Joe up in Mill Hill and they were having a business lunch, which will go on tomorrow (Tuesday). That’s the reason Joe hasn’t been able to come.” Around 230 fans, comprising a coalition of different supporters’ groups, packed into the concert room at the club, which lies in the shadow of St James’ Park, less than a week after the club confirmed that Kinnear had been handed the role of director of football. McIntyre tried manfully to defend Kinnear, and admitted he regretted his comments in an ill-advised and now infamous radio interview last week. “He regrets, naturally, what has happened over the last week. But Joe Kinnear will be here some time in the future,” he said. McIntyre was unable to win over a largely hostile crowd, but was applauded for his courage in turning up. The Irishman may not have been in attendance, but Wendy Taylor, head of media, and supporters liaison manager Lee Marshall, who have been attending the organisation’s meetings, were. Neither spoke, but they were there to report back what was said. More than 500 questions were submitted in advance by fans via twitter, Facebook and e-mail, many of them surrounding Kinnear’s controversial return to St James’ Park. Kinnear, however, was not the only target as supporters also vented their fury at club owner Mike Ashley, whose decision it was to install him above manager Alan Pardew and Carr. Indeed, one of the groups represented, the Mike Ashley Out Campaign, proposed a motion calling on the sportswear tycoon to sell the club, something he has previously tried and failed to do twice during the six years he has owned it. The motion, which was put to a show of hands, was carried by a sizeable, if not unanimous, margin. Press Association The 66-year was unable to attend the meeting of NUFC Fans United, to which he had been invited at short notice, as he got together with chief scout Graham Carr to discuss the club’s summer transfer business. It was left to close friend and former Newcastle schoolboy player Eddie McIntyre to fight his corner in front of a rebellious audience at Newcastle Labour Club. center_img Joe Kinnear was spared an angry reception as Newcastle fans met to discuss a turbulent week on Tyneside.last_img read more

Chelsea Linked with Summer Move for Ndidi

first_imgChelsea are said to have expressed an interest in signing Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, if they find themselves needing midfield reinforcements this summer.While the centre of the pack is currently one of the Blues’ strongest positions, that could change as both Jorginho and N’Golo Kanté have been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge, and losing either would obviously leave Chelsea needing a high-profile replacement.Now, here’s where the fun starts. The English media, such as the Leicester Mercury, have picked up reports which supposedly stem from Mundo Deportivo and claim that Chelsea are one of several sides keen on landing Ndidi this summer. The Nigerian is said to be valued at £40million and could fill the void left by either Jorginho or Kanté.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Guyana attorney general calls for gay referendum

first_imgBasil Williams, Guyana’s Attorney General Guyanese attorney general and minister of legal affairs, Basil Williams, has repeated a call for a referendum on whether homosexual acts of intimacy should remain a criminal offence.Williams made the call as he gave an address to a joint reception hosted by the delegation of the European Union to Guyana and the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD), in observance of International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) reiterated the call for a referendum in his remarks.“In addressing the issue… the government noted that the Guyanese people are to decide in a referendum whether homosexuality should remain a criminal offence. Since every citizen has equal access to all Guyana has to offer,” Williams said.Williams also referred to Article 149 of the constitution on the rights against discrimination, which includes sex and gender, and Article 149D, which provides equality of the enjoyment of all fundamental rights and freedoms.After calling for tolerance from the Guyanese society, Williams concluded by saying that Guyanese must foster a cultural shift.“This must begin with our social behaviour. Our language must change. We must document and expose allegations or reports of human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity promptly. They must be impartially investigated and perpetrators held accountable and brought to justice. Hate speech and condescending attitudes reduce tolerance for homosexuality and encourage fear for the unknown. They must be shunned and penalised. If we want change it must begin with each of us,” he added.https://www.caribbeannationalweekly.com/news/bermuda-paving-way-legalize-gay-marriage/last_img read more

NFL trade rumors: Steelers decided to move Antonio Brown before his demand, report says

first_imgAntonio Brown made it clear this week he wants out of Pittsburgh, but the Steelers had already decided to trade him, according to a report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.And the Post-Gazette says the Steelers, not Brown, “will dictate” where he goes. The wide receiver reportedly demanded a trade earlier this week, according to ESPN. On Tuesday, Brown further fueled the situation, tweeting a thanks to Steelers fans: “Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years…time to move on and forward.”Whether Brown first demanded a trade, or whether the Steelers opted to move him, doesn’t really matter. It’s possible both sides are now just trying to control the narrative, the NFL equivalent of an ex-couple arguing about who initiated the end of their relationship. Related News Antonio Brown odds: Where will Steelers WR end up?center_img Whatever the case, the seven-time Pro Bowl selection’s time with the Steelers seems near an end. Or maybe not. According to NFL Network, Brown will meet with Steelers owner Art Rooney II to “clear the air.” An earlier report said Brown did not plan to meet with Rooney.Trade rumors have linked Brown to several NFL teams, including the Cardinals, Packers, 49ers, Dolphins, Raiders and Patriots. The Post-Gazette report said Pittsburgh will determine his destination, saying, “It is all in the Steelers’ hands.”Expect the Steelers to field plenty of offers for the 30-year-old wideout during the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine, which starts Feb. 26, in Indianapolis.last_img read more

It is man killing man is where I have a problem and that has been going on since the beginning of time. I support legal hunting and hunting laws, be it federal, state or local law.

If the state can not do a better job of fencing them in they should be open season all year long. Report Reply 1 reply · active 400 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down Shots fired · 400 weeks ago The poachers cause a problem in many ways. They are not legally hunting and have no idea what is on the other side of their bullets. Try going for a walk in your own field after work and see how it feels for a vehicle to pull sideways in the field, spotlight towards you. It isn’t a great feeling. Catch them hunting on your ground when you know your children are on the other end of the field legally hunting and the poachers guns are pointed directly at where your children are. There is a reason poaching is illegal. Report Reply 0 replies · active 400 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down Xdeerlover · 400 weeks ago I for one do not like deer meat nor deer itself.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Add one more reason why the drought in Sumner County of the past two years stinks — poor hunting.  Chris Stout, Sumner County game warden for the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, said this was the worst deer firearm season he has witnessed since taking the job here six years ago.  The pheasant and quail hunting haven’t been any better.“A lot of it is due to a lack of vegetation and that is because of the drought,” Stout said.Two bad years of spring row crops, an early wheat harvest, and a lack of standing water have taken its toll on the animal population in Sumner County, Stout said. During the opening day of pheasant season on Nov. 10, Stout checked six hunters and saw two dead pheasants throughout the day.“That’s terrible,” Stout said. “I’ve never seen it so slow.”According to the KDWPT website, the drought in 2011 and 2012 took its toll on the pheasant population, reducing the breeding population by nearly 50 percent or more across the south-central area. The lack of precipitation resulted in less cover and insects needed for good pheasant reproduction. It also didn’t help that in Sumner County the wheat harvest was nearly complete by June, thus destroying many nests and young broods, who need a later harvest to survive.Stout thinks it could take a couple of years for the pheasant population to return back to the status of a few years ago – and that is if we return to normal precipitation.As far as the deer are concerned, drought was not the only thing creating problems for hunters.“We had hot temperatures and a full moon,” Stout said. “Thus the deer were more nocturnal this year. In cold, deer tend to burn up more calories so they are more out and about seeking vegetation.”There was one type of hunter having a good year – the poachers.“It’s just pathetic how many unethical people are out there,” Stout said, who has issued 12 poaching violations in the past month. “I’m getting a lot of complaints over people shooting deer from their trucks from the road.”He said poachers usually cut off the deer head for the antlers to sell and leave the carcass to rot.last_img read more
