Part of the Proceeds of the World Cup Friendly Matches Will Go to Haiti

first_imgBy Dialogo February 19, 2010 I think it’s good. Part of the proceeds of the friendly matches for the 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa will be dedicated to helping the population of Haiti, a country left devastated in the wake of January’s earthquake, the International Federation of Association Football announced. According to a statement, FIFA will dedicate its 2% share of the proceeds from each friendly match played between 1 March and 11 June to helping the country. “With a greater understanding of the magnitude of the human toll and widespread destruction, it is clear that the relief and recovery effort will require attention for the coming months and years,” Federation president Joseph Blatter affirmed. “To achieve more impact and to act in solidarity, we look forward to having all 32 participating member associations join this effort by making an additional donation of two percent for a total combined donation of four percent from each friendly,” Blatter added in a letter sent to the national soccer federations whose teams will be playing in the World Cup. The money collected by FIFA will go to a special fund financing projects proposed by the Haitian Soccer Association.last_img read more

Laws: Gay marriage law creates new inequity

first_imgStuff.co.nz 17 March 2013 Michael LawsOPINION: In the week in which a new Catholic pope was elected, secular New Zealand overwhelmingly voted to mainstream homosexual and lesbian marriage. Two thirds of parliamentarians rejected the religious underpinning of the old morality, to embrace a new standard. That irrespective of sexual orientation, all of society’s rubrics and rituals should be made available, including marriage and the adoption of children.  They similarly rejected the Catholic-Presbyterian-Pentecostal plea that conscientious objection to the new standard be allowed. And in so doing imposed a new orthodoxy upon us all, irrespective of religious, cultural or moral conscience. The problem now is that the new orthodoxy around gay marriage and its consequences is as illiberal as the regime it replaced. Those who wish to absent themselves from embracing such modernism run the same risk as the homosexual community over a generation ago.     Namely, investigation, censure and the potential for prosecution. In righting some perceived moral wrong, a new one has been created.http://www.stuff.co.nz/blogs/opinion/8429474/Laws-Gay-marriage-law-creates-new-inequitylast_img read more

Parry regrets Gillett-Hicks era

first_imgFormer Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry has no doubt the Reds are still feeling the effects of the period when they were overseen by George Gillett and Tom Hicks, who he says “we all wish passionately had not owned the club”. Press Association Regarding the Hicks and Gillett era, Parry, who was Reds chief executive at the time of their takeover and departed the post in 2009, told BBC Radio Merseyside: “That period of destabilisation is when we fell out of the Champions League. “Once you’re in there, you’re achieving those regular revenue streams. It’s a mountain to climb when it falls away.” During the reign of Gillett and Hicks – whose relationship was described by the former in 2008 as having been “unworkable for some time” – the debt against Liverpool’s holding company, stemming from a Royal Bank of Scotland loan the pair had used to help them purchase the club, continued to grow. “The debt was never on the club because previous chairman David Moores and I blocked that,” Parry said. “It was in the holding company, but clearly they needed to get money from the club to pay the interest so that was going to be a burden. “Our clear understanding was that it was short-term debt while they reorganised their own finances. “It was in the offer document that there would be no debt on the club, or the club would not have to bear the costs, and certainly that changed.” He added: “That (2008-09) is maybe the best ever chance we’ve had to win the Premier League and that was a time where we should have been kicking on. “With a few more adjustments to the squad, who knows what might have happened in the next year or two. “You’d do a million things differently with hindsight, but that’s not an option. We all wish passionately that they hadn’t owned the club.” center_img American businessmen Gillett and Hicks took over at Anfield in early 2007 and their tenure lasted until late 2010, when their compatriot John W Henry assumed control. The 2009-10 season was the last time Liverpool appeared in the Champions League and they have failed to finish higher than sixth in the Barclays Premier League since coming second in 2008-09. last_img read more

Tony Pulis – We’re always underdogs

first_img Press Association Palace also pushed Manchester City all the way on Saturday and were unfortunate to lose 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Although Pulis is attaching no extra importance to the clash with fellow strugglers Norwich, he still feels his side will be the outsiders in most of their remaining fixtures. “They are all worth three points,” he said when asked if the Norwich game carried more significance in their fight against relegation. “The Man City game has gone now so the next big game is Norwich. Every game is a cup final for us in the Premier League. We played well at Chelsea and didn’t get anything, we played really well at Man City and picked no points up. “All that we did is brilliant for confidence and everything else and gives the players a lift to go out and compete with top-class players. “The bottom line is when it comes to Wednesday we are playing another team who have more experience than us in the Premier League and have had more years to bed down. We will be the underdogs again, we are the underdogs most weeks and we just have to accept that.” Following narrow defeats at Chelsea and Man City in recent weeks, a game against the Canaries will be seen by many Palace fans as a fixture where points are more attainable. But Pulis is wary of that fact and is still expecting a tough test against Chris Hughton’s side. “That (expectation) is something you have to deal with,” he said. “The players have to deal with that, there is no hiding the fact that we are playing at home and we need to win home games. We are hoping that we get some points. “Norwich are one of the teams in the bottom half of the table who will be looking to get points as quickly as they can, much like us. “I have a lot of respect for Chris and it is a smashing football club. I haven’t seen them that much but I will watch a few games now until we play them on Wednesday.” Pulis took over a Palace team who had just seven points from their opening 12 league games and lost at Norwich in his first game in charge. Since then, the Welshman has secured enough points to take the Eagles out of the bottom three on goal difference and Pulis admits he has been impressed with how the squad have adapted to his methods. “The players’ attitude to what we are trying to do as a group has been wonderful,” he added. “If you look at the running stats for the wide players it is getting to a point where it should be, and I ask the full-backs to get up and support. “The team move up and down the pitch collectively and to do that you need people who are prepared to work and, with the position we are in, everyone has to work and they have bought into it and I think they are enjoying it.” Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis believes his side will be underdogs when they host Norwich on New Year’s Day – but insists that feeling is nothing new for the Eagles. A win for Palace would see them move above Norwich, who currently sit 14th in the Barclays Premier League, as Pulis continues to pull the team away from the relegation zone. The former Stoke boss has overseen two wins out of three league games at Selhurst Park since replacing Ian Holloway in November. last_img read more
