ought to recover more easily and have sufficient spring in his legs.Murray is entitled to feel like hes gotten over

The jungle drums reached fever pitch after Richmonds latest disappointment in an AFL season full of them, but embattled coach Damien Hardwick is quietly going about his business at Punt Road.The savage reaction to the Tigers 88-point mauling by Greater Western Sydney has increased the pressure on Hardwicks position, with a group of influential members pushing for change at board level.But a defiant Hardwick told reporters on Thursday that he would not be swayed by outside commentary as he attempts to salvage some positives from the last four games of the season - starting with Friday nights clash against Collingwood.Its all external noise for us ... were very focused on what were doing here, Hardwick said.Weve got a fantastic board, a fantastic football department, and were working our way to getting us back to where we need to be.We have honest and up-front conversations here - we dont get worried by external noise (because) it is just that. The people that matter are within these four walls.The Tigers are languishing in 13th on the ladder with a 7-11 win-loss record, but Hardwick called for perspective, adding the 70-point loss to first-placed Hawthorn two weeks ago and the thumping by the second-placed Giants were a fair reflection of the sides respective ladder positions.But while the Tigers have been fighting out of their weight category in the past two weeks, the 12th-placed Magpies present a fairer match-up.We play a side that is fairly similar to us this week in Collingwood, he said.They had a good win last week against West Coast so it will be a much more even competition. Weve played some pretty good sides the last two weeks.Theyre better than us - theres no doubt about that. Weve got some work to do, we understand that, but we play a side that is relatively evenly poised (with us).(But) theyre playing better than us at the moment so it will be a good challenge.

Coach Mike Munchak says Fokou stretched ligaments in his left knee Oct. 13 against Seattle, which could keep out up to five weeks even though the linebacker didnt need surgery. New Balance 996 España. -- In a span of seven Washington Redskins offensive plays, Justin Tuck sacked Robert Griffin III four times. "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. New Balance 574 Baratas Mujer.

Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. Andy Murrays rise to the top of the rankings this fall has been a surprising tale containing numerous improbable elements. So its hardly shocking to discover that in his own eyes, not playing has had as much to do with Murrays spectacular results as his exploits on the court.Ive managed my rest and recovery periods much better, Murray told ESPNs Darren Cahill on Friday, following Murrays tidy, 6-4, 6-2 win against Stan Wawrinka in the final round of round-robin play in the ATP World Tour Finals. In the past, after a tournament or a loss, I would get right back out there on the court to play, or to practice.Its different now. After Murray won the Paris Masters 1000, he explained he resisted the impulse to pick up a racket for four days during the week before the World Tour Finals. He also laid aside his sticks for a week after he won the Shanghai Masters. It could not have been an easy decision for Murray to take, because he owes a great deal of his success to his work ethic.Murray has a well-earned reputation as a workaholic. If youve known anyone like that, you know how much comfort they take in the sheer act of working. How secure it makes them feel. But what if the work isnt paying off, or its become just a hedge against feeling inadequate?Changing his work habits could not have been an easy decision for Murray to make. But he took the plunge. The successful result is further proof of Murrays reputation as a man who has left no stone unturned in his quest for greatness. In having the confidence and poise to try that somewhat counter-intuitive change, the 29-year-old Scot set himself up to equal the best winning streak of his career (22 matches) with this win over Wawrinka. More importantly, Murray positioned himself for a showdown with Novak Djokovic this weekend for the year-end No. 1 ranking.I feel good, Murray said, despite a season workload that has produced a 76-9 singles record and eight titles. Obviously, Ive played a lot, but my body is just conditioned to matches.Murrays mind is similarly steeled to the task at hand. It can be dispiriting to be frowned upon by the gods of the draw while a rival seems to get a path to a semi or final as slick as a luge run. This week, the seemingly smooth ride was offered to Djokoviic, whose cumulative record against the three other men in his round-robin portion was a perfect 23-0.ddddddddddddThat might have been especially discouraging for Murray, because of his already mediocre record at the O2 Arena coming in. Despite having nine previous chances to crack the World Tour Finals code, he was just 11-11 -- and never a finalist. His own draw this year was brutal: Murray was 27-12 against Marin Cilic, Kei Nishikori and Wawrinka.But Murray did more than survive; he flourished. He made a powerful statement in locking down the three Ws in round-robin play this year, because hes also been forced to march in lockstep with Djokovic all the way. Whoever does better in this tournament will take that grand prize, the top ranking.Murrays win against Wawrinka was deft, swift and critical. He accomplished it in 1 hour, 25 minutes, avoiding the kind of knockdown, drag-out battle he survived with Nishikori in the second round. It means Murray, who unlike Djokovic will not get a day off before the semifinals, ought to recover more easily and have sufficient spring in his legs.Murray is entitled to feel like hes gotten over the hump, even though his job is far from finished. He seems to have come to grips with the pressure he faces from his fellow British countrymen annually at the O2 arena. He also has a right to feel hes got the upper hand on his three potential rivals, starting with Saturdays semifinal opponent, Milos Raonic.If Murrays success makes Djokovic slightly uneasy or makes him wish he were better prepared for the semifinals, its an earned bonus.Murray was a juggernaut entering this event, and he remains one just two matches from its conclusion. On Friday, Murray broke a string during the first point of the final game. He played on, hitting three slice backhands, a lob and a slice approach before Wawrinka ended the point with a passing-shot winner. Its almost unheard of for a player to construct such a point through so many shots with a racket thats essentially unraveling in his hand.But thats the kind of year Murray has had, and its difficult not to read the incident as an omen.
