With more than half of the team sidelined, Jeter said the Marlins still can be competitive when their season resumes Tuesday at Baltimore.

Officials last week declared “substantial completion” of 65,000-seat Allegiant Stadium after nearly 1,000 days were spent building the $2 billion home for the Raiders. Both the New York Jets and Giants previously announced they would play without fans this season. Most other teams are hoping to be able to have at least limited crowds.

“I’m close to Kyrie, but Wilson (Chandler) is a new player, Garrett Temple’s a new player,” Jordan said. “We’re all new players, so if you’re going to say new players, put it on all eight of the new players.”Jordan scored 11 points and secured 15 rebounds in 29 minutes on Sunday against Chicago. Allen contributed 11 points and five boards in 19 minutes.The Nets, who are currently without Irving and Durant due to injury, are 29-34 and occupying the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference. Jordan vehemently denied those claims to reporters after the Nets beat the Bulls 110-107 on Sunday.”Whatever you’re saying and whatever the reports are are bulls—,” Jordan said, later adding, “This is just something to divide us as players and as an organization.”There’s some rumors that KD/Kyrie caused Kenny’s firingDeAndre: That’s 🤬 pic.twitter.com/kg76gHRe2A— SNY (@SNYtv) March 9, 2020MORE: Clippers need peak Paul George back on a full-time basisJordan is a close friend of Irving, but the center said that didn’t mean anything regarding the reasons for Atkinson’s unexpected exit. After the Nets “mutually agreed to part ways” with coach Kenny Atkinson on Saturday, the team raised eyebrows by changing its starting lineup Sunday to give DeAndre Jordan a start over Jarrett Allen.Jordan was a big-money addition last offseason along with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, and his place on the bench had been a topic of much discussion this year under Atkinson. Allen, who was drafted by Brooklyn in 2017, has started 58 games this year. The lineup change prompted speculation that newcomers had pushed Atkinson out and forced Jordan into an elevated role.
London, United Kingdom | AFP | Disgraced former FIFA president Sepp Blatter accused his successor Gianni Infantino of showing a lack of respect for him in an interview with the BBC.The 80-year-old — who on Monday lost his appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) over a six year ban from football for a two million Swiss franc ($2 million/1.8 million euro) payment to then UEFA boss Michel Platini — said Infantino had dropped by his house once since he was elected in February and Blatter had raised matters he thought should be dealt with.“I am definitely not a happy man (with) what happened with FIFA,” Blatter told the BBC.“I have never seen in any company that the new president… was not paying respect to the old president.“After his election we had a very good contact and he stopped at my house and we had a chat. I told him I have a list of questions that should be solved in Fifa which has not been solved before.“(Infantino) said ‘I will work on that’ and he never came back.”Blatter said Infantino, who was UEFA secretary-general under Platini, had not returned his phone calls since that meeting.“I have asked him, I have sent him a letter and I have his personal number and I was told that it’s still correct. Never never an answer – never,” said Blatter.Blatter, who served as FIFA president for 18 years but was subject to withering criticism during his tenure, claims he is too trusting and as a result he and his team never expected the FBI investigation that exposed massive corruption involving senior FIFA members. “I think people are good, and they are not good,” said Blatter.The Swiss, who served as the faithful secretary-general under his similarly disgraced predecessor as FIFA president the late Joao Havelange, also claims he came perilously close to death late last year.An unusually dishevelled and unshaven Blatter had alluded to this when he held a press conference last December but he went further with the BBC.“It was 1 November 2015. I was at the cemetery in my home village — where we have a family grave. And I was there… very, very weak, I couldn’t move,” he said.“They brought me immediately to a hospital in Zurich and they thought I was going to die in the next hours. Seriously.“It was a lady doctor there and she (asked) me: ‘Who should I phone?’ And I said: ‘No, no, no, I will go home tonight.’ And she said: ‘Oh no.’“They brought another doctor and he said: ‘OK calm down, calm down.’“I had time enough in the hospital to think that life is (more) than only football.”Share on: WhatsApp
“We knew George Weah well before he became elected president of Liberia. Congratulations to the legend of PSG and world football on this new chapter in his brilliant career,” PSG wrote in English on Twitter.AC Milan offered their congratulations “to the Red and Black legend” who starred for the club over four seasons, picking up two Seria A titles in 1996 and 1999.Despite numerous examples of the game’s former stars entering politics Weah is the first former player to succeed in being elected head of his country.Others have launched political careers, most recently AC Milan’s star Georgian defender Kakha Kaladze who was elected mayor of Georgia capital Tbilisi after serving as the Georgian government’s Energy Minister.In Brazil ex star striker Romario has served as a senator since 2015.But until Weah being elected head of state was confined to powerful club directors like ex AC Milan boss Silvio Berlusconi in Italy, or the current Argentine President, Mauricio Macri, a former Boca Juniors president.By winning this week’s election Weah has created another precedent just as he did back in 1995 when he became the first African to win the Ballon d’Or. (FILES) This file photograph taken on September 18, 2005, shows Liberian footballer George Weah as he takes part in a friendly football match in Monrovia. AFP PHOTO Paris, France | AFP | Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba led plaudits on Friday from the world of football to George Weah after the only African to win the Ballon d’Or was elected President of Liberia.“Congratulations Mr. George” the Ivory Coast legend posted on Twitter.“Thanks Didier for your support, we are both concerned and aware of the destiny of our peoples. Let’s follow the same path,” replied Weah.Drogba’s compatriot, Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure wrote: “Congratulations president Weah!!”Marseille’s former Cameroon midfielder Stephane Mbia applauded Weah on his “superb career”.“First African Ballon d’Or in 1995, first retired player to be elected president of the Republic. Respect!”Weah, idolised in Liberia as “Mister George”, will be sworn in on January 22 after winning Thursday’s run-off against vice President Joseph Boakai.His election success was noted with pride by former clubs Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan.Weah played at Monaco from 1988 to 1992 and the French Ligue 1 side noted in a statement: “The entire club congratulates George Weah on his election to the presidency of Liberia and presents him with all its best wishes for success as the head of his country!”From Monaco Weah moved to PSG where he picked up two Cup titles in 1993 and 1995, a league title in 1994 as well as sparkling in Europe.
