Post ith two Labradors following him, but
Even in the midst of a seven-game losing streak, Winnipeg Blue Bombers rookie head coach Mike OShea remains surprisingly calm and composed. Many wonder, especially after a surprising 5-1 start to the season, how — or even why — the first-year field general still keeps his cool. I dont think it does any good to — certainly, you never panic and certainly it does you no good to rant and rave, said OShea ahead of his clubs home finale against the B.C. Lions on Saturday. I think what you need to do, and what Ive always said is, you need to get a good understanding of why things are happening and how you fix them. The how you fix them part has been a little more challenging than maybe I thought. A franchise now removed from a tumultuous and damaging time that is oft-referred as the Joe Mack Era, OShea has been repeatedly clear that his job is to build this team up — not tear them down. What I do know and what Ive maintained — and then maybe this is the reason why I can — is weve got guys who are working extremely hard, he said. Im not watching our players go out on the field and give poor effort — which would be extremely frustrating — which would cause me to react in a different fashion. What I see is a lot of guys working hard and mistakes that pop up. The changes off the field began near-immediately during last off-season, but the on-field changes tasked to OShea and his coordinators, Gary Etcheverry and Marcel Bellefeuille, continue every week. While Winnipegs playoff chances (albeit, slim as can be) remain intact, new players are inserted into the starting lineup on a weekly basis since the beginning of October. This week is no different for the 6-10 club. Its good when youre finally getting comfortable with the system and you can play at a fast speed, said receiver Justin Wilson, who will make his first career professional start in place of injured slotback Nick Moore (knee), just three weeks after signing to Winnipegs practice roster. Its a lot to get used to. Its a little different than the American game, but this is all football at the end of the day… Ive been talking with (quarterback Drew Willy) a lot after practice, just getting little timing things down. Last week it was O-lineman Jace Daniels, after spending just 10 days in Canada before getting the start at left tackle for the injured Glenn January. With the veteran January returning from two games off with a back injury, Daniels, assumedly having left a positive impression on the coaching staff in his first pro start, will line up at right tackle for Devin Tyler, who was in a walking-boot this week with turf toe. But personnel arent the only changes. Etcheverrys defence ran some plays with four linebackers and just three down-linemen in practice this week, possibly to get a look at new linebacker Will Smith alongside the teams starting middle linebacker, Ian Wild. Definitely, a lot of guys have been trying to help me out, said Smith, inked to the practice roster just a week before his first CFL game against Calgary on October 18, where he played exclusively on special teams. Ill definitely be helping out a lot more on defence than I was last week. I have a lot more responsibilities on the defensive side of the ball, as well as the special teams aspect. Notes: Demond Washington is out this week with a suspected concussion suffered in a knee-to-helmet collision against Calgary last week. Desia Dunn, formerly the teams starting weak side linebacker, moves to Washingtons halfback spot, while Don Unamba remains on the weak side following an impressive 10-tackle debut where the special-teams ace added an interception… Return specialist Troy Stoudermire, fresh off the six-game injured list where his season was thought to be lost to a toe injury, returns to the lineup this week. Interestingly, the backup defensive back has been seen hanging around the offence while recovering from injury and dawned a white practice jersey along with the rest of the offence this week. Stoudermire was converted to defence in his final year at the University of Minnesota after playing three collegiate seasons as a receiver. Chris Scott Jersey .7 million, one-year contract, a raise of $2.2 million. Wieters had asked for $8.75 million and the Orioles had offered $6.

LeBron James believes hes a major reason for their early failures. J.J.

The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest.MONTREAL -- Carey Price can relax -- his Labrador retrievers are back home. The Montreal Canadiens goaltenders dogs Motty ("short for Mozart") and Duke got loose overnight. But, after word went out on Twitter, both were found and returned Monday morning. "I was preoccupied and they snuck out the garage doors," Price said. "They turned up this morning. "Its not the first time and its probably not the last time." The dogs were found by John Mastromonaco, who happened to be listening to TSN 690 in Montreal on Monday morning and heard an item about the missing dogs. "When I left the house at 6:15 a.m., I heard that Carey Price lost his dogs in Candiac, he lost his two labs," Mastromonaco told The Canadian Press. "Almost at the same time, I see this jogger with two Labradors following him, but the dogs didnt look like they were with him." After checking with the jogger, Mastromonaco realized hed happened on the goaltenders dogs. Candiac is a suburb south of Montreal. After trying to reach Price through the radio station, Mastromonaco said he called the number on the dog tag, which happened to be Prices wife. She directed him to the couples home where Price answered the door and gave him an autographed stick. "He just said thank you very much, I apppreciate it, heres a stick," said Mastromonaco, a Habs fan.dddddddddddd "I said thank you very much (to Price) and said good luck on Tuesday." Price said he had just woken up when the dogs were returned. "We didnt chat a lot," he said. "I was kind of groggy. "I was still trying to sleep. I probably didnt go to sleep until about two. I woke up, I was like ugh. Threw my bathrobe on. I was probably quite the sight to see." It was around midnight that Price tweeted that the dogs were missing. "Actually it was my wife that suggested it," he said of the tweet. "It was actually a good idea. Shes smarter than me. "I think its good karma because I picked up a dog four or five months ago and returned it to the owner. What goes around, comes around." Both starting goalies in the Montreal-Boston playoff series lost sleep on the same night. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rasks girlfriend gave birth to a daughter either late Sunday or early Monday. "Thats great for Tuukka," said Price. "Obviously, a child birth is a big time in your life. Thats really good news actually, I didnt know." The best-of-seven NHL Eastern Conference semifinal between the Canadiens and Bruins is tied 1-1 with Game 3 set for Tuesday night at the Bell Centre.
