Now that Corner Gas is back here are other Canadian shows that

first_imgHere’s a look at some other Canadian series that might be ripe for a reset:Slings and Arrows Fans of this star-studded comedy series have been calling for a reboot for years and its creators have done nothing but stoke the flames with assurances that a script is in the works. Given how many of its regulars went on to forge stellar film and TV careers, a true reunion would be a remarkable coup. Its regulars included Paul Gross, Sarah Polley, Rachel McAdams, Mark McKinney, Don McKellar and Colm Feore.King of KensingtonLate star Al Waxman would be tough to recast, so perhaps a sequel featuring a new generation of Kensington pals is in order. Cameos from past guest stars would be more than welcome; they include a young Mike Myers and Eugene Levy.Ready or NotThis Canadian teen series portrayed the coming-of-age angst of two very different girls: one a drummer who often clashed with her family’s traditional Italian Catholic background, the other an imaginative only child raised by hippie parents. The slyly subversive storylines were ahead of their time, but they may be just right for the debates about gender and identity politics of today.The Littlest HoboFew Canadian series engender as much drippy fondness as this ’80s series about a homeless German shepherd that roams the country, looking for people to save and criminals to catch. Any restart would have to include the indelible theme song “Maybe Tomorrow” and its evocative lyrics, “Maybe tomorrow, I’ll want to settle down, Until tomorrow, I’ll just keep moving on.”Being EricaIt’s only been seven years since the last episode of this quirky CBC series about a time-travelling woman aired, but it could have benefitted from more seasons to push the envelope further. Besides, not much on network television since has delved as deeply into a woman’s interior life, putting her struggle to conquer insecurities, grief and remorse front and centre.By CASSANDRA SZKLARSKI | The Canadian Press The Animated reboot of Corner Gas is among many successfull revivals coming to television.

Quebecor Inc. reported significantly improved second-quarter earnings as its discount cellular carrier Fizz Mobile attracted more subscribers. The Montreal-based company’s net income attributable to shareholders was $140.2 million, up from $42 million in the same quarter of 2018 — figures that have been restated to reflect a change in accounting requirements for lease agreements. The company’s Videotron telecommunications segment — which operates wireless and cable services in Quebec — saw revenue growth of 11.9 per cent for mobile phones and 2.6 per cent for internet access.WSP Global Inc. (TSX:WSP). Up $1.62 or 2.25 per cent to $73.56. WSP Global Inc. says it notched another quarter of double-digit growth in profits and revenues, propelled by recent acquisitions and cost savings. The engineering firm says net earnings rose nearly 32 per cent to $89.2 million in the quarter ended June 29 compared to a similar period in 2018. The Montreal-based company’s revenues rose 14 per cent year over year to $2.31 billion in its second quarter.

Up $1.83 or 2.8 per cent to $66.24. Shares in Magna International Inc. rose despite the auto parts maker cutting its sales forecast for the year and reporting lower second-quarter sales and earnings.

But the company said total sales including currency translation and divestitures decreased by one per cent to US$10.1 billion.

He said Canadians spend close to $2 billion a year on party supplies, in what remains a fragmented market. Party City, as the largest in the space, makes up under 10 per cent of the market while operators with only a few shops hold more than half the market, the company said.Cineplex Inc. (TSX:CGX). Up $1.54 or 6.7 per cent to $24.54. The owner of Canada’s largest chain of movie theatres, Cineplex Inc., says its strategic diversification into multiple forms of entertainment helped drive the company’s second- quarter revenue to a record high $439.2 million. Higher per-patron revenue from box office and concessions offset a slight decline in theatre attendance, which the company partly attributes to negative impact from the Toronto Raptors playoff run. Net income fell to $19.4 million from $24.4 million in the comparable period last year. read more

Libya UN mission encouraged by step in the right direction towards dialogue

“The move by the parties to identify their respective delegations to the talks is a step in the right direction,” UNSMIL said in a statement about the dialogue. “In agreeing to take part in this dialogue, all the parties have clearly signalled their determination to spare no effort towards safeguarding Libya’s political transition and forging ahead with building a modern democratic state based on the rule of law and respect for human rights.”The statement said that the move reflected the commitment of all parties to finding a peaceful solution to the country’s current political and military crisis through a process of dialogue, and added that the Mission would continue consulting with the parties in the coming days to finalise preparations, including details of the venue and timing.Despite being encouraged by developments related to the proposed dialogue, fighting continued, with both sides working to reinforce and consolidate their positions in the “Oil Crescent” area, roughly region in eastern Libya between Benghazi and Sirte. The Mission’s statement said it was “deeply alarmed” by the escalation, which undermined the efforts being made to convene the dialogue and which was sure to impact negatively on the economy. “All parties should desist from any action that obstructs the dialogue efforts and endangers the country’s economic lifeline,” the Mission said, calling for immediate disengagement by all forces in the Oil Crescent area. “Libyan oil is a strategic asset that belongs to all the Libyan people, who deserve an opportunity for stability and prosperity.”Warning that continued escalation risked worsening “an already disastrous situation” the statement stressed that those threatening Libya’s peace, stability or security could be subject to sanctions, sounding the warning on the same day as the Chair of the 1970 Libya Sanctions Committee briefed the Security Council on the Committee’s work since September.Next week, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya, Bernardino Leon, will brief the Security Council on his efforts to convene the dialogue and on the escalation of armed hostilities in the country. read more

Football Price following in Elfleins footsteps while fulfilling promise to late grandfather

OSU redshirt junior guard Billy Price arrives in Columbus for spring drills. Credit: Jacob Myers | Assistant Sports EditorAll season long, Ohio State redshirt junior guard Billy Price proved to be a man of brute strength and character. And now, nearly four years after he signed his name to don the scarlet and gray, Price will finish a full college career in Columbus in 2017.Coming from Austintown Fitch High School, Price was recruited heavily across the nation, receiving offers from OSU, Michigan, Arizona and even Southern Methodist University. In the end, Price decided to stay in his home state.“I was just really comfortable with Ohio State,” he said to The Columbus Dispatch after committing. “The academics are really strong, and my family is very comfortable with coach Meyer and his staff. I got all the questions I had about Ohio State answered, and it was finally time.”That comfort level has remained strong, as Price developed into one of the leaders on the OSU offensive front after switching from defensive tackle to the offensive side of the ball. Having mentors like Taylor Decker and Pat Elflein molded Price into the player he is today.And now, with his final season of eligibility on the way, Price has decided to remain a Buckeye, passing up on a chance to play on Sundays in the NL.“I’m coming back,” he said after the Fiesta Bowl. “I’m going to end up playing center. I’m going to lead the team, myself, Jamarco (Jones), we’re going to go in and we’re going to do some work next year.”The move to center and the return for his redshirt senior season mirrors the decision of Pat Elflein, who surprised many by returning for his final season to lead the Buckeyes’ offensive front. Elflein, who will now be entering the NFL draft, had a standout season after the move, and is arguably one of the best offensive lineman in the upcoming draft.According to Price, the decision was driven in part by the players who came before him.“Taylor Decker was a huge part of this, Jacoby Boren, those guys who kind of set the culture,” Price said. “It’s my job to lead that next year when I come back and play.”Family is a big part in the decisions of college players jumping to the next level, along with their education. However, for Price, promises to family intertwined with academics in his choice.After telling reporters in the locker room following OSU’s 31-0 loss to Clemson in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl he would return, Price explained the biggest reason he wished to return to Columbus.“I had a couple of goals when I first came here: Be a captain, be an All-American and to graduate,” he said. “And I told my grandfather before he passed and my mother, I promised her I’d graduate and so I take the student athlete stuff very seriously. To graduate from Fisher College of Business and the Ohio State University is definitely one of my goals when I came in here.”Price went on to admit he did not play well against the Tigers, and hoped to improve his game before next season kicks off for the Buckeyes. Although the promises to his family were the biggest deciding factors in returning, Price also said the memory of missed opportunities will keep him going next year.“In times of hardship, this is when you begin to grow,” Price said. “We’ll start offseason training and this is going to be a burning feeling in my stomach. I didn’t do enough to win tonight. I didn’t do enough to win tonight.”The 2017 season for OSU kicks off Aug. 31 in Bloomington, Indiana against the Hoosiers. Until then, Price will be working to learn the center position, as well as improve his skill set. Judging by the success of Elflein in his return, things might go extremely well for Price.Elflein himself even said the only place to go for his fellow “Slob” is up.“I feel like he’ll do pretty much the same thing as I did,” he said.. “Come back, lead this team, be the center. I think he’ll be another All-American. I think he’ll win the Rimington. I think he’ll do all those things.” read more

Beside The Points For Monday Feb 5 2018

Things That Caught My EyePhilly had it comingPhiladelphia really needed that Super Bowl win. From 1984 to 2017, the sports teams of Boston won 7.7 more championships than expected, those of Chicago won 6.1 more than expected, LA 4.9, San Francisco 4.7, and New York 3.2 more than we’d otherwise project. Prior to winning the Super Bowl, Philadelphia sat on the bottom of the list of North American sporting towns, winning 3.7 fewer championships than otherwise expected. [FiveThirtyEight]Foles > BradyNick Foles finished the game with a quarterback rating of 88.6, completing 28 of 43 passes. Tom Brady came up short, with the purported GOAT racking up a QBR of merely 83.8 and completing 28 of 48 passes.

[ESPN]One punt, many records setThat game was ridiculous for a number of reasons. At 1,151 yards it was the highest combined total yards in any game in NFL history. Tom Brady set the record (505) for most passing yards in an NFL postseason game, and the Patriots scored the most points of any Super Bowl loser. There was one punt! One!

City Hall suspends several unregistered food businesses

The Mayor and City Council (M&CC) of Georgetown, on Monday took the decision to suspend the operations of five businesses in the City for various health and safety violations, with the common thread being the owners operating unregistered businesses. Four of the business folks have a three-month period to get themselves in order while another has six weeks.The decision was taken at Monday’s statutory meeting at City Hall when four of the five operators appeared before the full Council. This is the first time, since its election, that businesspersons appeared before this Council.Acting head of the Meat and Hygiene Food Department, Abiola Baker (standing) revealing the details of the charges against the business ownersActing head of the M&CC’s Meat and Hygiene Food Department, Abiola Baker, charged Orin Isaacs and Luanna Noel, Rajkumarie Singh, Brian and Deon Carter, Nadia Singh and Peggy Hoenkirk of violating the city’s food and health codes.Baker and Isaacs operate a soup snackette in Castello Housing Scheme, West La Penitence; Rajkumarie Singh has a food restaurant at Sheriff Street; the Carters operate a bakery and restaurant at Sophia; Nadia Singh a burger snackette at Sheriff Street; and Hoenkirk a liquor and food restaurant at Duncan Street.None of the five businesses has the necessary documentation that would permit operation of any sort, more so a business that deals with food. Some of the outlets that are being closed have been notified since 2015. In addition, the employers and employees failed to produce valid food handlers’ certificates and Baker reports that they would prepare ready to eat foods in the unsanitary conditions using unsanitary utensils.Georgetown Mayor Patricia Chase Green allowed each of the business owners the chance to defend themselves and to tell the Council why they should not be permanently shut down. As a result of their explanations, they were given a six-week suspension pending their registration. These businesses have been operating their businesses for approximately 10 years.Chase Green told the Council that although these businesses fall within their constituencies, they should look at the bigger picture when voting on the resolution since the wider public’s health is involved. She added that she is in no way trying to permanently close down businesses hence the reason for her suspending the operations until they can comply with the health and operational codes as set out in the laws of the municipality.The issue of non-compliance of the regulations and bylaws governing food establishments is something that has been ongoing for years. The M&CC continues to play its role in ensuring that citizens who are purchasing fast food are consuming food that is prepared in sanitary conditions. Only recently, the M&CC held a workshop with persons who operate food business on safe food practices. They were also encouraged to get their food handlers’ certificate.

Genocide bill passed in France

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram France’s parliament has passed a bill last Monday making it a crime to deny the 1915 killings of Armenians was a genocide, sparking outrage from Turkey. Turkey, which sees the allegations of genocide as a threat to its national honour, suspended military, economic and political ties with France and briefly recalled its ambassador last month when the lower house of parliament approved the same bill. Turkey had already threatened more measures if the bill passed. The debate surrounding the measure comes in the highly charged run-up to France’s presidential elections this spring, and critics have called the move a ploy to garner the votes of the 500,000 Armenians who live in France. This domestic gamble could have major international consequences as France’s relations with Turkey are already strained due to Sarkozy’s opposition for Turkey’s entry into the European Union. The law will no doubt further sour relations with a NATO member that is playing an increasingly important role in the international community’s response to the peace negotiations in the Middle East.last_img read more

What you should know about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child spoilers

first_imgHarry Potter and the Cursed Child, the newest dispatch from the Wizarding World of J.K. Rowling has officially hit stores, physical bookstores, as well as eBook stores around the world. The play on London’s West End has officially premiered, transitioning out of previews and into a running show. The play, both published and running, are important to the full story of Harry Potter, which began with the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 1997 (1998 in the United States). After digesting the play in the printed form, here are some things that every Harry Potter fan should know.There be spoilers from here on out. If you missed our spoiler-free edition and want to wait to catch up, click over here.For Voldemort and Valor!Harry Potter and the Cursed Child might change how time travel works in the Wizarding WorldIn case you haven’t heard the news, the new Harry Potter story is heavy with the time travel. Which isn’t to say that this is the introduction of time travel to the franchise. In the third book, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Hermione is given a magical device called a Time Turner to allow her to take twice the classes at Hogwarts. At the end of the book, Hermione and Harry use the Time Turner to save Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Harry from Dementors. In the book, the object is “turned” once per hour you would like to go back.The Time Turners were later destroyed by the Ministry of Magic and J.K. Rowling has acknowledged in interviews that the power to change time might not have been the best plot mechanic to introduce into the story. What saved Rowling with her portrayal of time travel in the book is that it was (arguably but not provably) a closed time loop. When Harry is first saved from Dementors by an unseen force in Prisoner of Azkaban, he thinks it is the ghost of his father when really it is Harry from the future. We don’t see a timeline where Harry is not saved from the Dementors because when Harry and Hermione go back in time, they have always gone back in time.In the play, not only are there two Time Turners that show up, but all the rules set by the previous Turner get changed. The first “prototype” Time Turner that Albus and Scorpius get ahold of in the play can take the users back years, but has a five minute time limit before it transports them back (and it exacts a physical cost, like breaking Albus’ arm). The original Time Turner didn’t have the power to jump the user forward and it certainly didn’t have the limitless power of Draco’s gold Time Turner from the end of the play. Most notably, because we’ve read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, we know that Ron didn’t court Hermione with a fireworks display before the second task. That’s not a closed loop anymore, that’s creating alternate realities, which is a phrase that’s even name dropped in the play.If you’ve recently read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the plot will feel like Back to the Future Part II.Back to the Future Part II doesn’t just deliver the thrills of the first movie, it revisits the first movie when Marty has to correct his errors in the future (and by future, we mean 2015). Harry Potter and the Cursed Child pulls a similar trick by setting a lot of it’s action and spending much of the plot focus on the events in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Not only does Amos Diggory ask Harry to save Cedric, but eventually we re-visit all three of the tasks of the Tri-Wizard Tournament at least once, but we get trapped in an alternate dimension of Scorpius’ fourth year, just like how Marty gets trapped in a Donald Drumpf…er…Biff-run 1985.If that isn’t Back to the Future Part II enough, Cursed Child Part Two gets alternate universe Snape, Hermione, and Ron in on the action to undo time travel we saw previously in the play. Cursed Child loops back on itself and it loops back on the original series of Harry Potter books in a Back to the Future Part II way, and just when you think you are clear of the Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis story mechanics, Cursed Child does a riff on the beginning to Back to the Future Part III except instead of the Old West, it’s Godric’s Hollow.Just sit down, enjoy your chocolate frogs and stay on the train!The Trolley Witch is literally a monster, and it is great.In one of the play’s most interesting scenes, it is revealed that the nameless Trolley Witch who goes up and down the halls of the Hogwarts Express selling sweets to children is actually some sort of wild-eyed and claw-handed ageless monster. Not only that but her Pumpkin Pasties are more like grenades.It turns out the Trolley Witch, whatever she actually is, is over 200 years old and was hired by Ottaline Gambol, the Minister of Magic from 1827 to 1835. Gambol introduced the Hogwarts Express to Britain and apparently had the Trolley Witch both serve snacks and keep people from escaping the train. After stopping Sirius Black and the Weasley Twins previously, Scorpius and Albus somehow manage to be the first kids to escape her grasp. This is the coolest new fact about the Wizarding World given by the play. The rest is all retread or re-writing parts of existing canon.Alex Price and Anthony Boyle as Draco and Scorpius MalfoyThe villain of the play isn’t revealed until the second half of Part Two… and it’s Voldemort’s daughterSpeaking about that “re-writing” part, the villain of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is revealed to have been controlling all of these time travel shenanigans as a way of meeting her father, Lord Voldemort. It’s a big reveal that only comes after all the time travel to the Tri-Wizard tournament and the alternate universe plots have been resolved and no one stops to explain what happened.To be fair to the play, there is some foreshadowing in the previous three acts that Voldemort had a child. There is the rumor that Draco’s son Scorpius is actually Voldemort’s son by Time Turner (which seems like a ridiculous rumor until after the reveal of Voldemort’s daughter when it turns out the Malfoys DID have a Time Turner all along!) and when Scorpius travels to the alternate universe where Harry Potter died at the Battle of Hogwarts, there are references to “the Augury” which go unexplained because we don’t yet know Voldemort’s daughter exists. When Delphi (that’s her name) reveals herself, we find out the truth when Scorpius sees a tattoo of a bird (augury is divination by bird) on Delphi’s shoulder and realizes “the Augury” wasn’t a group, but Voldemort’s daughter who had risen to his right hand as she aged.It’s only a line, but Delphi reveals herself to be the daughter of Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange, born in Malfoy Manor before the Battle of Hogwarts… which could make sense. It has struck certain readers as odd that Voldemort, who so trusted Bellatrix, would have not assigned her the raid on Hogwarts the night Dumbledore was killed. If you count the months between Bellatrix’s release in book five to Dumbledore’s death in book six, it’s possible she’s absent from the raid because she’s just too pregnant.Regardless, Bellatrix’s disappearance for a part of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince does provide a window for Delphi’s birth. At the end of the play, she’s sent to Azkaban and… presumably everyone is okay with the daughter of Voldemort still being around? We aren’t getting any more Harry Potter stories, so it looks like Voldemort’s daughter isn’t going to be the most popular offspring of a villain to date. Though she still rates above Godzilla’s child Manilla. Everything rates above that thing.last_img read more

Good Names First CEO

first_imgBefore founding Ethos, Greenblatt served in the U.S. Department of Commerce during the Clinton Administration. Former Good associate publisher, Al Gore III, is the son of the former vice president.In addition to scaling Good’s profile as an integrated media company, Greenblatt also will help the company explore options for securing outside investment. “Since the beginning, Good has been bootstrapped, but we might consider engaging outside investors in order to achieve our business objectives, which are pretty significant,” explains Goldhirsh. Good was launched as a print magazine in September 2006 with an initial circulation of 25,000.

The magazine has grown to a print circulation of approximately 60,000 paid readers.“Within a five-year timeframe, we hope to emerge as a lifestyle brand that provides content through digital and print media,” Goldhirsh says. “I would not estimate the numbers, but we hope to achieve profitability in that timeframe.” Good magazine today announced that Jonathan Greenblatt, co-founder of Ethos Water, was named to the newly-created position of CEO. “He has succeeded both as an entrepreneur at small start-ups and a seasoned executive at larger corporations,” Good founder and chairman Ben Goldhirsh tells FOLIO:. “We see Jonathan helping to bring focus and strategy to help scale the efforts here at Good.

Caribou access concerns vs minings economic promise — BLM releases public input

first_imgA map of the proposed Ambler Road project. The Bureau of Land Management has just released a summary of the public comments on that project. (Graphic Courtesy of HDR for the Bureau of Land Management.)The Bureau of Land Management received thousands of public comments on the controversial proposed Ambler Road during the scoping period for the project, which ended in January. The BLM released a summary of those comments this week.Listen nowThe road, which is proposed by the state, would begin at the Dalton Highway and run over 200 miles west, along the southern edge of the Brooks Range. Proponents say it’s needed to develop the Ambler mining district.Tim La Marr with BLM said the agency received input from people on all sides of the issue.“I was impressed with the range of comments that we got,” La Marr said. “Comments from the mining industry, comments from environmental groups, a lot of comments from the tribes… comments from people throughout Alaska and people in the Lower 48 as well.”La Marr said that of the 7,000 or so written comments, most were form emails. But over 800 were unique messages, many with substantive suggestions for issues that BLM should consider as they assess the impacts of building the road.Some of those comments argue the road will lead to job growth and economic benefits for the state. Others raise concerns that it would disrupt the Western Arctic Caribou Herd’s migration, or enable more drugs and alcohol to enter rural communities.A topic that came up often in the comments was who would have access to the road. The state says the road will only be permitted for non-public, industrial use. But a number of people who commented questioned the state’s ability to keep the road closed to the public, especially over the long term.“A lot of those comments stem from the concern that if it is opened up to public use, then that opens up a huge area in Alaska that sport hunters and fishermen can start to… use those resources at the expense of subsistence uses,” La Marr said.The comments will help the agency develop an environmental impact statement for the project. That assessment will underpin BLM’s decision on whether to allow the road to be built on federal land.The state is funding the federal environmental review process. The legislature appropriated funding for the project in the past, but Governor Walker has only allowed a portion of that to be spent so far.BLM says the state has provided funding through the end of the scoping phase of the Environmental Impact Statement process. To complete the EIS, the state will need to provide BLM with additional funds.last_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Holcomb expects a transition period where the players adjust to the new approach, both mentally and in their split-second reactions.“It’s just understanding that primarily we’re a single-gap defense right now and every man is assigned for a gap and every man has to do their job,” Holcomb said. “Those guys have embraced the switch. They get to stop the run on the way to the quarterback.”That aggressive approach is one of the things new players profess to love about Holcomb’s approach – none more than pass rushing defensive end Chandler Jones — but there appears to be a personality fit as well.“He’s a straight-forward guy. He speaks direct, and he’s a big attention-to-detail guy,” Jones said. “He’s both fiery and cool, and that’s advantageous for a coach because sometimes you don’t want to be one way. You need to get your players’ attention or you need to calm them down. It’s good to have the fire aspect and also the cool in your bag.”The Cardinals are a long way from cementing their personnel packages or identifying their strengths just one week into training camp, but Holcomb says he is happy with what he has seen so far.“It’s gone well,” he said. “Obviously, there’s going to be a learning curve with it and we have a lot of moving parts right now. We have a large roster but the guys are picking it up. As we continue to conquer old problems then we’ll go back and fix new problems.” 0 Comments   Share   GLENDALE, Ariz. – Cardinals defensive coordinator Al Holcomb and his staff keep a chart of missed opportunities by their players every day in training camp. They’ve been doing it since OTAs.When the final tally is in, the staff presents the results to the players at team meetings. If a player makes a play, he earns the simplest of rewards.“Positive reinforcement,” Holcomb said, laughing.If he misses a play, on the other hand, “you get a minus for it,” linebacker Josh Bynes said. “You’re like, ‘dang,’ but he’s like, ‘you had your hands on the ball. It’s an opportunity for us. That could be turned into a touchdown.” Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img (Twitter screenshot/@AZCardinals) Related LinksCards camp notebook: Intensity rising with focus on physicalityDoug & Wolf’s bold Cardinals preseason predictionsArizona Cardinals sign Cap Capi to one-year dealThere are all sorts of plays that get charted from pass breakups and forced fumbles to tackles and interceptions.“He’s looking at everything,” Bynes said. “It’s pretty much just like a game.“At the end of the day, this game is about production so it’s a missed opportunity in the game. That could have been the play to seal the game. That could have been the play that stopped the touchdown the next play. That could have been the play that changed everything and gave us momentum. Those are things you have to capitalize on, on defense. If we can get turnovers on defense, we’re going to win games.”The Cardinals are hoping that their transition from a 3-4 alignment to a 4-3 alignment will produce those turnovers. With the new alignment, there is less guesswork and thinking involved on a given play.“Going from a 3-4 to a 4-3, we’re really going to be harping on gap integrity and everybody playing their assignment and being responsible, being accountable,” safety Antoine Bethea said. “It’s what we like, playing downhill. With a 3-4, a lot of times, it’s two-gapping. You’ve got to rock back whereas here, everybody has a gap. You hit your gap downhill, creating a new line of scrimmage. I think that’s what everybody is going to appreciate about this, being able to attack and put pressure on the opposing offense.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
