Kam Chancellor Contract Holdout Ends

Kam Chancellor

Seattle Seahawks would receive a good help to pay for their bad start. This Wednesday they lost another game but Kam Chancellor gives news that he would come back. He will put an end to his contract holdout. He will return back to the team by doing so. Chancellor is skipping pre-season acting his request to renew his contract. The situation prolonged and he has to skip two more games at the start of the season. Both of these games end in Seahawks defeats. Seahawks loses matches against Rams and Packers is proven to be a very bad start for the team. A downfall of team morale could be shifted through the text he sends at Stephen A Smith. His text confirms that he wants to back to the team.

Chancellor said that he want to help his team to fight back form their defeat. With him in the team he would give a try to improve Seahawks bad start at the beginning of this season. In the text he said that he will help their team mates. The offer works for those who understand his position and also for those who aren’t. He tries to be good by forgiving people and put himself back to the game. The intention of reshaping contract still exists in his mind but he is willing to address it when the season ends. He wants to continue working on a mission that he started with Marshawn. He can let his friends down and he means business with his words.

Thought it may be able to be a good help Seattle Seahawks may think that Chancellor comeback isn’t necessary. There is nothing to worry about their situation. Their defeat against Rams is something that happened on overtime. Though this can’t justify their defeat but it doesn’t mean that Seattle Seahawks really needs help. Defeats to Packers can be justified by the fact that it is included in the list of best team thus it is logical to see Seattle Seahawks defeated by such team. Despite of justification the team is already defeated twice in the start of the season. It means that the team would need to give better performance than what he has given earlier. Having Chancellor back to the team is a good idea since it could give good boost to the team morale and make the hawk sore back to the sky.

This Wednesday Chancellor is seen on team facility. With the comeback Seattle will have better defense ad good leadership. This would work great for the next game. Seattle would want Chancellor back to the team. But some charges may need to be paid for Chancellor action of contact holdout. Seattle may or may not make this as a problem. It would depend on how much the team needs Chancellor. Chancellor makes his comeback based on his good will. He is following his heart to help his teammates. Looking at team losses hurts him. He know that he could make a difference thus he had to head back to the team.

Not many can expect world ruby can be like this. Japan prevails against South Africa. Change the shape of teams in Tier 2. Looking at a match between Fiji and England is also a fun thing to see.

New Zealand registered senior player amount is half of Japan which has 53,000 players. England would be three times bigger than japan with 167,000 players. Namibia only has 1,080 players which would be equal to nothing compared to others. This is only the comparison of available choices for the best player in the country. The larger number would naturally have certain advantage since they would have a lot more to choose from. Actually rugby only needs 11 good players thus a thousand choices should be enough.

In term of playing time Japanese have an expanding professional league. South Africa has a player with highest income in the world which is reported in 2012. The player name is Jaque Fourie. Namibia has different choices of professional player. All of them started with different jobs until decide to follow a career as professional rugby player.

Stuart Lancaster understands that he had to make better judgment about his action and the team selection to make a god match against wales. The match that would be held at Saturday is the key match in World Cup. Formation changes happened and new people placed for better game. George Ford is replaced by Owen Farrell. Sam Burgess is placed in the center of the field. After beating Fiji in the first match, England had to face Wales which manages to defeat Uruguay. Lancaster are confident about his choice and action and know that winning is a sure result. He said that people would know the game is a success if the manages to win it. People will question the result if the team eventually loses the game. Such opinion would only suggest that Lancaster feels he have made the best decision for the team.

Despite of an injury that happened to Jonathan Joseph and the change he had to make for team backline, he still confident about his decision and the outcome of the competition. Pairing Burgess and Brad Barritt activate 14th design of centre partnership that has prevailed in various competitions during his tenure. He has made the strategy design for 11 months and uses the idea to Test rugby for 112 minutes. The design is intended to put Burgess on the face of Jamie Roberts. Lancaster knew that he had to use the best defense strategy to hold off Wales and make it difficult for them to enter the gain-line.

As a good defender Sam would be able to take care of the defense in British team ad also use his capability to help attackers. This is necessary since he may have a chance to attack if opponent try to choose another route to attack or bypass him. Mike Ford said that the decision to replace George have made him devastated. He doesn’t see it coming and now he has to sit on the bench during such important game. Lancaster says that George should try to deal with his disappointment. Lancaster knows that his decision would be hard on George but it is designed like that to make the team have better chance in winning. Lancaster recognizes George and Burgess as word-class players. He just wants to do thing differently this time and give different effect to the field.

The decision to put George Ford on the bench has various criticisms. People say that the Lancaster decision is an act that signifies his true feeling. Gavin Hastings is an ex-captain for Scotland have expressed that the host give the sign of panicking. Everyone would easily understand why George Ford feels devastated and give them some kind of support and condolences. They also speak about his feeling as a player that hasn’t done a big mistake but have to feel the bench at an important match. That just doesn’t make sense. Ford literally filling in for Saracens and Farrell during the matches of Six Nations and then Lancaster had to replace him with Owen.

Swede Henrik Stenson give seven shot under 63 and manage to surpass Englishman Casey by two shots. Northern Ireland’s McIlroy have better position with one stroke away. Jason Day manages to finish by one short at the end of the first day of closing season of PGA Tour’s. This may not good enough for the title of world number one but it is a good start.

Stenson is a winner in playoffs competition for FedEx Cup two years back.

Stenson says that at his age he does have plenty experience for playing gold. He has hit millions of balls using various kinds of sticks. That is the accumulation of swing he has done for years. The only advantage of playing a he competition at this age is that his body would feel any swing he made. Getting easily tired is nothing compared to the satisfaction of seeing your name on the leaderboard. It feels different in every tournament to see our own name at the top. People have seen lots of famous layer to fill this list but having someone who doesn’t supposed to be there would be amazing. It would excite the player and also the spectators in different ways.

The number has been reduced from the 125 people that fight against each other in the first competition. McIlroy is in a good position for the game. He is number 11 on the list.
