Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. A. J. Pollock Jersey . This week, they discuss the NCAAs revenue sharing, Don Zimmer, soccer language and Super Bowl 50. Dave Naylor, TSN Radio 1050: My thumb is down to world of big-time American college sports, which reminded us again this week there is no end to hypocrisy when it comes to sharing wealth with its players. This week Alabama football coach Nick Saban and Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari were rewarded with contracts worth more than $50 million each. This comes just as the NCAA is about to begin defending its right not to share revenues with players; in the lawsuit filed by former UCLA basketball star Ed OBannon, which starts on Monday. How the NCAA can argue theres not enough money in the system to compensate players when coaches like Saban and Calapari can earn more than $6 million a year should be interesting. But we just know theyll find a way to do it. Dave Feschuk, Toronto Star: My thumb is up to baseball characters. May they live forever in our memory, even as they leave us. The game lost an unforgettable one this week with the passing of Don Zimmer. In a sport built on stories, his was a pure classic. Zimmer met Babe Ruth as a boy, got married to his high-school sweetheart at home plate of a minor-league park, played with Jackie Robinson and won a World Series with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Hell probably be remembered best for charging Pedro Martinez back in 2003, when Zimmer was in his 70s at the time. As he said later, "I sure wasnt going over there to kiss him." Baseballs heroes arent always so easy to embrace. So often today we focus on money and moneyball. Zimmers life was about finding a love and fighting to keep it. He loved baseball so much, it nearly killed him. As a player, he survived two fastballs to the head. One put him in a coma, another caved in his face. He kept playing after both. He got fired four times as a manager, but he never retired. Nobody ever wanted him to. For characters as unique as Zimmer, there are no replacements. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: As I said four years ago, and plan to say again in 2018, my thumb is down to anybody in this country who plans to speak world cup soccer English for the next month. I dont want anyone saying a goalkeeper had a clean sheet. Clean sheets are in your linen closet. He had a shutout. The score, maybe, was one nothing, not one nil. And please dont tell me the United States needs a result against Ghana. A loss is a result, not a good result, but a result. And just so were clear, its not football here, its soccer. Alright, now carry on and keep calm. Dave Hodge, TSN: My thumb is up, though not for long, to the National Football League for deciding to ditch the Roman numeral "l" for super bowl 50, to be played in February of 2016. The use of Roman numerals began with super bowl 5, sorry, "v", and it has proved to be very successful - in creating confusion. Now that couldnt have been its intention, but what else, pray tell, was it supposed to do? Make the event seem bigger than it is? It needs no help from an ancient alphabet. But, as I said, the NFL is praised here only briefly, because it will return to Roman numerals for super bowl 51 - LI - and theres no end in sight, unless its super bowl 59, which will read LIX, and maybe the NFL wont be fond of Super Bowl licks, which come to think of it, was last seasons super bowl - Denver taking its licks from Seattle. Randy Johnson Jersey . Rob Klinkhammer and Mikkel Boedker scored 63 seconds apart in the first period for the Coyotes, who handed the Kings their third straight loss and took over sole possession of eighth place in the Western Conference. Mike Smith made 36 saves. Gregor Blanco Jersey . So far, so good: Gonzalez has allowed one run through 12 innings this season. His second start came Tuesday night, when he gave up only three singles over six innings to lead the Nationals to a 5-0 victory over the Miami Marlins. http://www.diamondbacksapparelsshop.com/paul-goldschmidt-jersey-c-6/ . A lovely summer day in England with abundant sunshine and minimal wind allowed him to attack Royal Liverpool.LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Even when his legs are shot and his whole body is exhausted, Kobe Bryant can figure out ways to will the Los Angeles Lakers to victories.It helps when the opponent struggles down the stretch as much as the Sacramento Kings did, though.Bryant scored nine of his 32 points in the final 3:14, leading the Lakers fourth-quarter comeback for a 98-95 victory over Sacramento on Tuesday night.Carlos Boozer added 15 points as the Lakers snapped their three-game skid by rallying from a 12-point deficit in the second half. They grinded out a win with a fourth-quarter effort led by Bryant, who managed to conserve just enough energy to take the Lakers over the top.Im hurting, Bryant said. At halftime, I just lay down and try to put myself mentally in a place where I just block it out and come out and play.After Bryant tied it at 92 with a breakaway dunk and a clutch 3-pointer, Jordan Hills layup on a sharp pass from Bryant put the Lakers ahead 94-93 with 1:39 to play.The Kings went back in front on a driving layup by Darren Collison, but Bryant hit two free throws for the lead with 34 seconds left. Rudy Gay and Nik Stauskas missed 3-pointers in the final 18 seconds for Sacramento, which has lost six of eight.Nick Young had 12 points for the Lakers. They have won just three of 12 home games this season, but have won 12 of their last 13 at Staples Center against Sacramento.Sometimes youre going to have to win games that are ugly, Lakers coach Byron Scott said. We didnt exactly make shots on a consistent basis, but we made big shots when we had to.Collison scored 26 points and Gay had 23 for the Kings, who went scoreless in a 4 1/2-minute stretch. Sacramento managed just 14 points on 5-for-17 shooting in the fourth quarter.This loss really, really stings, Kings coach Michael Malone said. Its a bad loss — not because of who we played. I would never disrespect tthe Lakers. Fernando Rodney Jersey. . But for us to have the lead and play as well as we did at times, and then just give it all back and not have the poise to handle the adversity down the stretch, its a tough loss.Ben McLemore exceeded his season average with 13 points in the first half alone, pacing the Kings to a 55-46 lead. Bryant missed nine of his 13 shots in the first half.The Kings took their biggest lead early in the third quarter before Bryant and Young keyed an 18-6 run to keep the Lakers in it.TIP-INSKings: This overnight jaunt south was Sacramentos only road game in an 11-game stretch of its schedule, smack between two five-game homestands. The Kings havent left California since Nov. 28, and they wont have to leave again until Dec. 29. ... Collison missed his first five free throws before making his sixth.Lakers: LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena watched the game from courtside 48 hours after winning his fifth MLS Cup championship. ... Carlos Boozer came off the bench for the second straight game after starting his previous 588 NBA games. ... Young completed a four-point play late in the first quarter.STILL NO CUZThe Kings are back to .500 after their seventh straight game without leading scorer and rebounder DeMarcus Cousins, who is out another week with viral meningitis. I think he is the best rebounder in the game, so we definitely miss him, Collison said. But we have other guys that can play pretty much the same way. So theres no excuses on our part. We have guys who can step up and fill that void.KEEP THE BALLThe Lakers had a season-low five turnovers, and are among the NBAs most careful teams with the ball. Bryant committed three of those turnovers, but had the ball in his hands on nearly every possession — particularly while essentially playing point guard down the stretch.UP NEXT:Kings: Host Houston on Thursday.Lakers: At San Antonio on Friday.
