Mitch Robinson admits Carltons decision to dump him two years ago will motivate him for the rest of his AFL career. Kyle Emanuel Jersey .Robinson is in career-best form for Brisbane and will take on his old side on Saturday at the Gabba, a rare opportunity to claim a win for the struggling Lions.The rugged on-baller is averaging 23 possessions per game and is one of the few senior players in Brisbane this season who can hold their head high.Its been probably my two best years of my career up here, Robinson said.Ive used that as motivation and Ill probably keep using it for the remainder of my time up here.But Robinson insisted he was not bitter at the Blues, who delisted him at the end of the 2014 season after a series of off-field incidents.Probably last year was more a little chip on the shoulder and trying to prove Im a good player still, he said.Ive actually been supporting them this year, watching games, getting stuck into it on the TV, all that kind of stuff.Things wont change this weekend, its a big game for me personally but for the club its even bigger.Carlton have lost their past eight games and, like the Lions, suffered their worst defeat of the season last weekend in a 71-point loss to St Kilda.After coach Justin Leppitsch last week conceded he was running out of ways to keep his young players focused, Robinson said he had taken it upon himself to help out.Thats been my role, pretty much. You speak to anyone, theyll tell you Im up and about, a bit of ADHD-type, he said.I just try and keep everyone up and about and motivated on and off the track.Its been pretty tough but the boys have been sticking together a lot this year. Antonio Gates Jersey . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday. Born and raised in Toronto, Bradwell is entering his sixth CFL season, with all six played for his hometown Argonauts. NEW YORK -- Four years ago, an unexpected guest crashed a celebration in Manhattan so he could hang out with U.S. Olympians who were on their way to the London Games.The guest: Donald Trump.The president-elect, who also carried the torch in the lead-up to the Athens Games, has been a longtime sports fan and admirer of the Olympics. He also likes winning, which is what has attracted him, over the years, to a U.S. team that routinely dominates the medals.It would be no stretch then to imagine Trump as a natural supporter of the effort to bring the Olympics back to Los Angeles in 2024.But Olympic bidding is a contest decided more by secret handshakes than a scoreboard. Though it claims to be above politics, the International Olympic Committee is teeming with them -- and many of its 98 members factor in geopolitical considerations when deciding which city to entrust with their most sacred and valuable property, the Olympic Games.No surprise then that Trumps election sent a ripple through Los Angeles bid leaders. They recognize that if the United States is viewed as an unsteady player on the global stage when the games are awarded next September, it will give IOC members -- not historically a pro-American group anyway -- one more reason to favor Paris or Budapest over LA.We just finished our presidential election and some of you may question Americas commitment to its founding principles, American sprinter Allyson Felix told IOC members last week at a Los Angeles bid presentation. I have one message for you: Please dont doubt us. Americas diversity is our greatest strength.The U.S. government will not bankroll an LA Olympics, which makes it more of a side player when it comes to bidding.But every bid needs some amount of buy-in from the top, and for a long time, a direct appeal from a head of state was thought to be a key way to bolster a bid. Convinced this was the case, President Barack Obama flew to the IOCs final bid meeting in Copenhagen in 2009 to support Chicago in its attempt to land the 2016 Olympics. He got burned when his home city was the first one eliminated in the voting.Reflecting on that last month, Obama told New York Magazine, I think weve learned that the IOCs decisions are similar to FIFAs decisions: a little bit cooked. Matt Slauson Jersey. Trump has no apparent baggage with the IOC, and, in fact, an IOC member -- American hockey player Angela Ruggiero -- is one of a handful of Olympians to appear on Trumps reality TV show The Apprentice back in the day. She got fired.But if theres any real fence-mending to be done, it might be between Trump and the LA bid itself.Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat with ties to Hillary Clinton, said over the summer that a Trump victory could turn off voters.I think for some of the IOC members, they would say, `Wait a second, can we go to a country like that, where weve heard things that we take offense to? Garcetti said.Trump won, and operatives in the LA bid have had what theyve described as preliminary discussions with the incoming administration. They have not offered details.Assuming Trump doesnt impede LAs progress, the IOC could be faced with a choice between two leaders whose populist, nationalist messages have won over voters, while causing some international discomfort: LAs biggest challenger is Paris, and French polling shows far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has a reasonable chance in that countrys election next spring. (Budapest, meanwhile, is considered a long shot.)In considering how much weight to throw behind the Olympic bid, Trump will have to decide which vision of the movement he believes in more.The IOC, after all, has been long been portrayed as an of out-of-touch, privileged group of backroom deal-cutters not all that different from the swamp of overpaid lobbyists and career politicians that Trump said he wants to drain out of Washington.But for a candidate who won by promising to Make America Great Again, the chance to surround himself with a group of red-white-and-blue winners and bring the Summer Games back to U.S. soil for the first time since 1996 might seem like too good an opportunity to turn down.---Follow Eddie Pells on Twitter at https://twitter.com/epells Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
