The Wanderers will have to overcome

SPARTANBURG, S. Blue Air Max Shop .C. -- NFL Most Valuable Player Cam Newton and some of his Carolina Panthers teammates took a break from training camp to remember the victims of last years Charleston church shootings.Newton, along with fellow co-captions Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis, Ryan Kalil, Greg Olsen and Charles Johnson visited a local museum in Spartanburg, South Carolina on Monday night to view artist Dr. Leo Twiggs paintings that honor the victims of the shootings and those who rallied behind the church and the victims families in the aftermath of the tragedy.The series of nine paintings is called Requiem for Mother Emanuel after the church where nine people were killed on June 17, 2015. The paintings are currently on display at The Johnson Collection art gallery just minutes from where the Panthers are holding training camp.It takes you back to that day when you heard the news and what you were doing, knowing how tragic it was and knowing there were a lot of people whose lives have been changed in one instant, Davis said. He did a phenomenal job of capturing that.Panthers coach Ron Rivera, who attended the gallery along with assistant coach Steve Wilks, called the gallery a powerful statement. He felt that with his players representing the Carolinas it was something they needed to see.It really is a tremendous piece, Rivera said.The Panthers took a vested interest following the shootings.Newton traveled to Charleston to meet with the families of those killed in the shootings and help in the healing process. Panthers owner/founder Jerry Richardson donated $100,000 to the victims families to help cover burial costs and to build a memorial in the city.Based on what has happened in our society today that type of a statement was important for us to make, Rivera said. You could see the impact that the exhibit was making on the guys and the expressions as the curator at the art gallery was talking about each piece individually.Davis said each of the players had different interpretations of the paintings. For Davis, who is African-American, the depiction of the Confederate flag in the paintings really struck home.That stood out to a lot of us, Davis said. ... I think it was powerful for the state to actually take that flag down because of what it represented.Davis said the exhibit helped put things in perspective for players.It makes you take a closer look at it, Davis said. It makes you dive deeper into what happened and why it happened and what was able to come out of it.Game notes The Panthers signed defensive end Tom Lally from Mount Union on Tuesday and waived injured wide receiver Tobais Palmer and defensive lineman Chas Alecxih.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Cheap Air Max Outlet .

First off, the fans ripped the Cubbies introduction of a fuzzy new kid-friendly mascot named "Clark". Western Sydney coach Tony Popovic has hinted at a first A-League start for marquee Nicolas Martinez in Fridays grand final re-match against Adelaide.Popovic was impressed with Martinez 30-minute stint off the bench in round one, despite the Argentine midfielder flaming out late.In the last 10 minutes, he probably found it a bit tough physically with the lack of training and game time hes had, Popovic said.But for that 15-20 minute period when he first came on, you can see the quality he has on the ball. His movement off the ball, you can already see some combinations building in our front third.Its that kind of quality that could tempt Popovic to start Martinez against the Reds and form an intriguing midfield that includes fellow import Jumpei Kusukami and Mitch Nicholls.Popovic insisted on attempting to take a long-term approach with the former Olympiacos player, saying there was no need to rely on Martinez too early.We want Nico available all season. To throw him in and start that game in the derby ... hes got more of a chance tomorrow, Popovic said.But its about having him being able to reproduce week by week, at training, in games and having him available because hes a very good player.The Wanderers coach was also delighted with the first outing of Kusukami, who was easily Popovics most-dangerous threat against Sydney FC.The former J-League player liit up ANZ Stadium with a number of slicing runs, and was on target with both of his shots on goal. Nike Air Max Clearance Online. He showed against Sydney FC in such a big game, especially in a moment where we were behind on the scoreboard, he really tried to step up and get us back in the game, Popovic said.Theres a lot more to come from him, but were delighted to have him at our club.Its the defence that could be of concern for Popovic, who has given captain Nikolai Topor-Stanley permission to pursue an overseas opportunity and another defender in Artiz Borda suspended.The Wanderers will have to overcome a poor record against the Reds in recent years, having won just one of their past nine clashes and none in five matches in Adelaide.Reds defender Iacopo La Rocca expected Popovic to extract plenty of fight out of his old club.I know Poppa - I know he will push the team. Of course, they will come here to get the three points, but we play at home - we have the advantage, he said.STATS THAT MATTER:* Adelaide have only conceded two first-half goals across their past 11 matches* United have only tasted defeat once in their past 22 A-League matches (W16, D5)* The Wanderers have conceded at least three goals in each of their past three A-League games Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
