Mike McKennas departure as operations chief at Cricket Australia has led to another exit, with the long-serving head of events, Chris Loftus-Hills, also quitting to help McKenna oversee Perths new stadium.In more than a decade at CA, Loftus-Hills pulled together events at a moments notice, and managed such intricate functions as ticket sales and the back-end production of international matches, among other things.He joins the Perth Stadium team having already worked in collaboration with the Western Australia government and builders to prepare cricket facilities at the stadium, including the drop-in pitches to be used at the multi-purpose venue. It is set to host Perths Ashes Test next summer.I am excited to be joining Mike McKenna and the team that will bring to life the new Perth Stadium and deliverworld-class sport and entertainment events, Loftus-Hills said. My time at Cricket Australia has been a wonderful journey filled with incredible experiences. I would like to thank both Mike McKenna and James Sutherland who have given me such unique opportunities and supported me faultlessly during this time.It has been a pleasure to build programs and develop an outstanding team that delivers events for a sport that I am deeply passionate about and that is so important to so many Australians. I am very fortunate to be able to take with me a decade of special memories. I am very much looking forward to working with all the major sporting codes and other hirers to deliver a premium fan experience in a world-class facility that the people of Perth are going to be immensely proud of.The departure of Loftus-Hills contributes further to a significant drain of talent from the governing body, which in the past 12 months has lost a broad selection of staff from a wide variety of roles at its Jolimont headquarters. These include:Executive general manager (EGM) of business and advisory services EGM of operations Head of HR Head of communications Two womens team communications managers Legal counsel Two managers of schools and junior participation programs Community relations manager Hospitality manager Internal communications manager Big Bash League commercial managerThere are believed to have been a range of difficulties faced by staff beneath senior executive levels for some time, contributing to the high turnover. Roles at crickets governing body have always been in high demand, ensuring a steady flow of fresh candidates eager to take the places of those who walk away.Some issues raised have included a lack of time off in lieu for staff, and cramped working conditions at the Jolimont office, which has served as CAs Melbourne home since 2001, albeit with expansions to its upper floors. One minor concession to staff this season has been an internal memo stating that the wearing of ties in the office is no longer mandatory.A CA spokesperson declined to comment on Loftus-Hills exit.

I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. Cheap Redskins Jerseys .

Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. SUZUKA, Japan -- Formula One teams are divided over where to go pre-season testing next year, with some favouring Barcelona and others Bahrain.Changes to the regulations present a step into the unknown in 2017, with both the teams and tyre supplier Pirelli set to be on a steep learning curve at the two four-day tests before the first race in Australia. Pirelli favours Bahrain because the temperatures will be more representative of most races on the calendar and the tracks emphasis on traction will help it understand the level of degradation to expect at the opening races.Under the regulations the pre-season tests need to take place in Europe, but in the Suzuka Friday press conference, Mercedes technical boss Paddy Lowe led the campaign to choose Bahrain instead.The situation is that we have the biggest change in tyre regulations probably for one or two decades and Pirelli have asked the FIA if they would support testing in Bahrain, which is outside Europe, Lowe said. By regulation it requires a process to get there, so as I understand, a majority of teams support that request.For me, the important point is that what Pirelli were asking for is some hot-condition testing of the compounds particularly. The structure of the tyre is created and tested in the lab but the compounds they can only evaluate in real circuit conditions and unfortunately the mule car programme which is running at the moment has delivered three cars which are very helpful to the process but they are not delivering the level of aerodynamic load that will be seen next year.So for me its a matter of supporting Pirellis request to contain the risk of arriving at the first race as being the first event with hot conditions and theres real risk to the show. Weve seen what can happen, for example, in Indianapolis 2005.We mustnt forget that we need to put on a show, we need to run a 300 kilometers race with sensible numbers of tyres, so thats not an inconsiderable risk and should be covered. So thats why we particularly support that request.However, Williams technical director Pat Symonds was of a different opinion.[We are] diametrically opposed, he said. The cost of doing a test outside of Europe is vast. Depending on exactly how you do it and how much you have to ship back to the UK, how much you can ship on to the first race -- were talking of a minimum of £300,000, probably a maximum of £500,000 so a likely figure sitting in the middle of that. Now to a team like Mercedes, Im sure that they can put contingencies in their budgets to cover things like that. A team like Williams simply cant, its a significant amount of our budget, it is unaccounted for and therefore I think it is the wrong thing to do.Now, the rules do have an anomaly in them in that Im sure everyone knows that at this stage of the year you normally need unanimous agreement to change the rules, but there is an anomaly in that theres just this very one thing where at the moment the rules do not allow you to test outside Europe but there is this anomaly that by majority you can agree to test outside Europe. We are opposed to that. The thing that the rules do not allow you to do is to split the testing so you cant have some people testing in Europe, some people testing outside.Now Paddy mentioned we need to have safety and the Indianapolis situation and things like that but I think its very, very clear in the requirements that Pirelli have signed up to and indeed that Pirelli have asked for that were not running cars to test the safety of tyres. That has to be done off the car, that has to be done before they ever see a track, so I dont think that thats an acceptable reason to go testing in the Middle East or elsewhere. Yes, there will be difficulties but you know were inn the same boat.dddddddddddd We are having the tyres selected for us for the first few races which personally I think is a good thing.If it does come about, then obviously people are going to have to do it because, as I say, we cant split the testing but its going to make a very, very serious dent in our budget. If we do it, I think we need to consider where we do it because we do act like sheep quite often in Formula One and theres this thing of oh well, weve tested in Bahrain before, lets go to Bahrain.Personally I dont think Bahrains a very good circuit to go testing. We have tested there in the winter, some people remember some years ago that there was a test there which was effectively sand-stormed off rather than rained off. And even when we tested there as recently as 2014, the first few hours of the day were spent just cleaning the circuit up. If you accept youre going to stop on the way to Australia, it really doesnt matter where you stop. I think Abu Dhabi would be a much better place, maybe even Malaysia. But as a team were opposed to the idea.Lowe stepped in a second time to clarify his position.I need to correct Pat because I think you misstated what I said. I wasnt talking about the safety of the tyre from a construction point of view, I made that clear. Its just safety from a show point of view with the compound. If you have the wrong compounds then we will be trying to do six or seven stop races and we dont have the tyres to do it. That was my point.Pirellis side of the argument was put forward by its technical chief Mario Isola in a separate media session. He said Pirelli needs the test in hotter conditions to understand the compounds so that it can judge whether the compound selection it has made for the first three races (a decision that needs to be made prior to the first test in order to ship the tyres) is correct.Without representative testing in hot conditions, Isola said Pirelli would have to make conservative compound choices for the first race, which could then have a negative impact on the racing. However, with a test in Bahrain it would be able to prescribe softer compounds in the knowledge that it could still enact an emergency plan to change them if the data from Bahrain proves it has made the wrong choice.When we have the feedback from the winter test, if we decide that any of our choices for Australia, China or Bahrain is completely wrong, we can put in place an emergency plan moving the selection. So, if we decide for Australia that we are going soft, super-soft, ultra-soft and then we realise in testing we are too soft because the performance of the car is much higher compared to expectations, we can move a step harder and move to medium, soft and super-soft. So it is an emergency plan.We would prefer to avoid any last minute change, but considering next year everything is new, the cars are new -- and their performance is just an estimation from simulation -- tyres are new, compounds are new and constructions are new, maybe it is necessary to do that. So we need to prepare a plan and share it with the FIA and the teams and agree that if anything like that happens we are ready to react.Although the option of splitting the teams into two separate tests is against the current regulations, Isola said Pirelli would be willing to accommodate it.We are ready to supply logistics for both tests if they are going to happen, but of course it is not our decision. If the decision is to give the teams the freedom to go to Barcelona or Bahrain, we will provide the logistics for both tests. But my feeling is that it will not be the solution we choose.
