Sebastián Cristóforo also revealed his unease over the same matter on April 2. “Before you talk about finishing the league, you must end this virus nightmare. The main thing is to try to find a cure for the virus, that there are no more infected and return to normal life. Later it will be seen how everything resumes: the league, life, jobs, studies, etc. But the essential thing right now is to try to stop the contagion. The main thing is people’s health“He pointed out flatly.” We are seeing that it is a world crisis, not just one country. Hopefully in a little while it will be known how this contagious disease can no longer be spread and a cure found. We have to try to reduce the contagion between everyone, being in our houses; let this end as soon as possible and let’s get our lives back“he indicated more than a month ago.“We want to play, but not at any price”“We want to play, but not at any price. We must first preserve the health of all the protagonists“Amaia Gorostiza, Eibar president, stressed last Saturday regarding the resumption of the league.” We know that not resuming the competition would have quite important consequences, both economic and social; and that is why we are working to return to the competition. We want to play, we all want to play, but not at any price. Obviously, we want to preserve the health of all those people who are within the competition itself“Barça president stressed.” Footballers want to play, but they fear for their health and the health of their families, of course, “said Amaia Gorostiza.“The first thing is the health of people who participate in a match“highlighted on April 4 Jon Ander Ulazia, CEO of Eibar, who then made an assessment of the three assumptions that were being handled (that the league should not be resumed, that it be done behind closed doors, or with the public). Now, the only thought is to finish the competition without spectators in the stands. “All possible scenarios must be planned, putting the health of the footballers and all those who participate on the field of play ahead. The League (said referring to the club management) has made it clear that there will be no resumption of any kind if health is not guaranteed, “he said.Eibar opens its store and customer service officeEibar will open its official store and the member service office on Tuesday, May 5, although by appointment, according to the Gipuzkoan First Division club on its website.Eibar will recover the face-to-face attention of its Orsaixan space (store and customer service office) with the obligation to arrange a meeting before being able to access the interior. So, it will be avoided that there is more than one subscriber or customer in the premises located in the Ipurua stadium, to prevent infections.During this week, the customer service hours will be from 9.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. Those who want to make an appointment, must do so through the telephone number 943 20 18 31, or through the email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com,The entity will make available to workers and users all the necessary safety measures, such as masks, to avoid contagion..The official store and Eibar partner service office has been closed for seven and a half weeks, since the last day it was open was Thursday, March 12, and on Friday, March 13, the shutter was lowered. Eibar players are concerned about the return to professional soccer activity, which has already begun to take its first steps after more than seven weeks stopped by the coronavirus. For this reason, they are thinking of issuing a statement to express the doubts and problems posed by the return to sports work, as announced by Cadena SER on Monday.Barça footballers see risks with a return to training and competition in a sport in which there is physical contactTherefore, it is impossible to maintain the physical safety distance and the protections (masks) that are required of other workers to prevent the spread of COVID-19.The Eibar team does not see it clearly, nor do many other athletes who practice a team sport in which there is contact, such as basketball, handball, or rugby. In Holland and France, professional football has already been suspended – Belgium was the first to say that the season was not going to end –, while in Spain the handball and rugby competitions of the highest categories have already been completed.Several Eibar players have publicly expressed their concern about the possibility of catching the disease in sports in case of returning to activity to resume a league that was paralyzed after day 27, and which still has 11 games to play if it wants to end the 38 league days.Pape Diop was very clear on April 16. “I would not play again if there is a risk of infecting the family. Football moves a lot of money, but the most important thing is health. It seems too soon to go training, this disease is more serious than what we had been told, “said the Senegal midfielder, settled at his home in the Basque Country two weeks ago.“Until health is secure, it doesn’t seem right to play,” said José Angel ‘Cote’ on April 8. “The fairest thing would be to play, but health comes first. And right now, health is not guaranteed. Until health is secure, it would not seem right to resume competition“highlighted the Asturian left-back defender.”I don’t think much about football with everything that’s going on out there. All of humanity must focus on stopping the virus“sentenced the gijonés.Not even the fact that it has been planned to start training first individually and, later, in small groups – as happened in Germany – they do not convince José Angel ‘Cote’. “It seems silly to me. I don’t think you can solve anything with that. The most important thing is health right now“He assured four weeks ago. His words were prophetic, because in Germany there are already 10 players infected before the competition began, and some are from the same team. And it is that the coronavirus is a contagious disease that the same can be transmitted between co-workers or sports activities, if they share a close space or if they maintain physical contact.
The news on Jonathan Cooper is both sobering and surprising. On one hand, losing your best offensive lineman when there is a premium on improving your offensive line seems to be a disaster; on the other hand, the news of his successful operation and possible return in 2013 was encouraging. The Cardinals think he might have a chance to play six games. I don’t think it’s going to happen. Pure speculation on my part, but unless the Cards have a legitimate shot to make the postseason, I don’t think there’s any way they bring Jonathan Cooper back. He’s too valuable. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments Share Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories In a short period of time he’s made some people within the organization think he’s a franchise guard, a player that comes around once a decade. He’s a baller that has rare athleticism, holding up at the point-of-attack while pulling and running like a fullback. He’s everything they thought he was going to be and more.I know this: I wouldn’t play him. If the injury is going to take 10-12 weeks to recover from, and I have played 10 games and have six left, and I have a legitimate shot at making the playoffs (5-5 at the worst), why not just proceed with what has gotten me to 5-5 and let my franchise guard fully recover?I’ll move Daryn Colledge over to LG and hand the reins, for now, to Paul Fanaika at RG. In the Cardinals’ offense it’s more important to have your LG be the more athletic guard, and Colledge is the more athletic of the two. The Cardinals use both the power-scheme and the zone-scheme to rush the football. Generally speaking, because most teams have backs that are right-handed and run to the right better than their left, on average, the LG is pulling more than the RG. In addition, Bruce Arians loves the inside zone, which is the zone scheme’s version of power football without pulling the uncovered lineman. Again, in a gross simplification of theory, knowing that teams run more to the right than they do the left, Paul Fanaika is more powerful than Colledge. Fanaika gets better movement on the Ace-Block (1-Technique) and Deuce-Block (3-Technique) than his counterpart. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Finally, LG is your help guard: more times than not, he gets more help than the RG and gives more help than the RG. And this concerns me. Fanaika is a great technician that is strong as an ox, but quicker 3-techniques give him problems. He’s got to hold up in protection and keep that pocket solid in the middle because Carson Palmer is not a mobile quarterback and needs a secure pocket to step up into. If Levi Brown can hold up at LT and be respectable (and this is a BIG if based on his San Diego performance), this is where the worm will turn for Big Red and how effective they are in giving Palmer a chance to be successful. Losing Jonathan Cooper is a kick to the cradle and feels like doomsday, but there is a chance we might see him this season. But don’t hold your breath…unless Levi continues to struggle and Fanaika can’t handle the 3-Technique.
