Mexico seeks to extend deal with NFL to host games

Mexico seeks to extend deal with NFL to host games

Aug 13, 2017

Mexico seeks to extend its relationship with the NFL beyond the original three-year deal to host a regular-season annually, as reported NBCsports. The Raiders played the Texans in the first-regular season game in Mexico since 2005, and the Raiders return this season to play the Patriots in Azteca on Nov. 19. “We need to keep working hard to be as successful as last year in order to have a chance to continue with this project and that the game is here to stay,” Arturo Olive, the NFL Mexico office director, said, via The Canadian Press. A league study estimated that the 2016 game generated $45 million for Mexico City’s economy as it drew 76,473, including 9,500 international tourists. An estimated crowd of 205,000 attended the NFL Fan Fest during the weekend. “We are giving everything, Olive said. “We set the bar high for last year’s game, and we were successful, but we’re trying to do even better this year.” During the 2016 game, then-Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler complained of a laser light interfering with his vision, and paper planes sailed onto the field. Some fans also participated in a homophobic chant during kickoff. Olive said Mexico would love to go beyond annually hosting a game to having a team hold training camp there. The summer heat is an obvious problem, though. “We have not been able yet to find a way to make it comfortable for them to leave the places where they usually do it,” he said. “In the meantime we are happy that the league trusted us with three games and we hope to keep this going for the years to come.”...

Emerson Lake & Palmer’s Greg Lake lost his battle against cancer at age 69

Dec 10, 2016

I Believe In Father Christmas singer Greg Lake has lost his battle with cancer and died aged 69. The King Crimson and Emerson, Lake and Palmer frontman, whose festive track hit No 2 in 1975, passed away on Wednesday his manager Stewart Young confirmed on Facebook. A statement said: “Yesterday, December 7th, I lost my best friend to a long and stubborn battle with cancer. Greg Lake will stay in my heart forever, as he always has been.” In an interview shortly before his passing, due to be published before Christmas , Greg, of Bournemouth, spoke about his feelings on the commercialisation of the holiday period. He said: “When Pete Sinfield and I wrote I Believe In Father Christmas it was about how Christmas had deteriorated and was in danger of becoming yet another victim of crass corporate financial exploitation. He continued: “We never had any commercial or financial intentions, but of course now everyone wants to know how it feels to receive all the lovely royalties, which are apparently delivered by wheelbarrow by Santa himself, after a long day climbing down everybody’s chimneys.” The respected musician was regarded as one of the founders of the prog rock scene. Only nine months ago his bandmate Keith Emerson committed suicide. Surviving bandmate drummer Carl Palmer, 66, lead the tributes saying: “It is with sadness that I must now say goodbye to my friend and fellow bandmate Greg Lake.  ...

Robert De Niro calls Donald Trump ‘insane’ and urges voting for Clinton

Robert De Niro calls Donald Trump ‘insane’ and urges voting for Clinton

Nov 7, 2016

Robert De Niro lashed out at Donald J. Trump, calling the Republican presidential candidate “insane” from the podium of the Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday night. De Niro compared Trump to off-kilter movie characters in front of a supportive crowd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Trump comparisons included the “totally insane” General Jack D. Ripper, who pushed the world to “nuclear Armageddon” in Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove. De Niro said the Ripper character was not a stretch from the “totally insane” Trump. “I know we’re here to celebrate movies in Hollywood. But it’s two days before a frightening election and the shadow of politics is hanging over us whether we like it or not. And it’s hard for me to think about anything else,” said De Niro. “So let me lay it out right here. We have the opportunity to prevent comedy from turning into a tragedy,” De Niro added. He advocated voting for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, bringing a cheer from the crowd. De Niro, who received the Hollywood Comedy Award for his role in The Comedian, has gone after Trump before. In October, the Oscar-winner took Trump to task, calling him “a punk, a dog, pig, a con (and) a (BS) artist” in a video that went viral. “He’s a mutt who doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes,” De Niro said in the video. In August, De Niro called Trump “totally nuts” during a film festival discussion....
