At 3-0, the game was already wrapped up, but Melbourne Victory goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas ran the length of the field anyway. Cheap Air Max 270 .Max Beister had just put the finishing touch on Victorys third and final goal against Western Sydney on Saturday night, and Thomas got running.He was one of the first players to reach the clubs new signing, laying his great big glove on the Germans head as he celebrated in front of the Victory bench.As someone that started his career feeling on the outer, Thomas knew how much it would mean.From a personal experience when you come into a football team, the best way to feel involved and part of the club is when you have an impact on game day, he said on Tuesday.For him to come in and be scoring, it was the best thing that could have happened for him to feel a part of the club and feel welcome.Beister, who arrived at Victory on loan from German side Mainz just a few weeks earlier, took a great stride with that goal.The 26-year-old made a perfect start at his new club, but also in rebuilding a long-lost career.Beister has made just one senior start since battling a debilitating ACL injury suffered in early January 2014.Thomas, who was forced to travel a long road himself to earn the nod as Victorys No.1, could sense it was a special moment for a player who had taken the risk of re-booting his career half-way across the world.Thats why I ran the whole way up the field. I was pretty tired running back actually, he said.I thought it was important to share that moment with him.I think he was really excited and maybe surprised by the atmosphere.I dont know if he expected that from Australian football. He came in and said wow it was really loud ... I think its made a big (impression) on him and making him feel at home.Without a match this weekend due to the earthquake that has affected Wellington Phoenixs home ground Westpac Stadium, Beister could improve his conditioning to contend for a first-team berth against Newcastle in their next outing.Thomas had a personal connection to the earthquake, with a younger brother currently holidaying in New Zealand.My mum called me a bit worried ... I ended up hearing back from him, he was out quad riding so he was alright, he said. Discount Nike Air Max Wholesale .

Kerry,  Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count?  All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not.ST. PETERSBURG, Florida - Brett Lawrie, still looking to find his offensive groove, spent Thursday afternoon taking extra batting practice. When he wasnt swinging for the fences, he was swinging back at Twitter followers expressing frustration with his slow start. "All u people who chirp when things dont go good have never done anything in pro sport .. Ever .. So shut ur mouths #LetsGetThisThingg #jays," said Lawrie in a tweet that was later deleted. He later clarified what he meant. "I expect that," said Lawrie. "I expect a lot out of myself but at the same time, Im not going to sit there and take all that from people that I dont know. So if I want to say something back, I have more than the right to. Freedom of speech. People want to come at me with something then Im not scared to say something back." As reporters meandered into the press box shortly before three oclock, Lawrie could be seen down on the field, alone with hitting coach Chad Mottola, working on his swing. First he hit off a tee; he progressed to soft toss and finally, batting practice pitching. "Just getting reps," said Lawrie. "Not necessarily working on anything, just getting reps, just getting rhythm thats about it." Surely there was more to it. "Were just trying to control him a little bit more," said Mottola. "The way hes wired his high intensity and in hitting most of the time it doesnt work. Just trying to get some things that will slow him down without saying take away his quick twitch. You know the way he plays third base, the way he hits hes got to be moving but were just working on modifying that a little bit." Lawrie was hitting .175 in 21 games; his on-base percentage a woeful .247 entering Thursdays action. Lawrie shrugs off as an "excuse" the notion hes still catching up after a spring training cut short by a ribcage injury suffered on March 6. Mottola, however, believes therees truth to it. Cheap Nike Air Max Outlet. "We were trying to change some things from the prior year as well," said Mottola. "So I think he needed spring training more than other guys so he could go through the transition period of at bats meaning nothing. And the way he wants it so bad and the way hes probably worse than the way the public wants it so weve got to protect him against himself sometimes because he wants it so bad he tends to try to go get the ball out of the pitchers hands. The way the game works you cant do that." Manager John Gibbons removed Lawrie from the leadoff spot for the finale of the series against the Rays. "Yeah he hasnt been getting on base a whole lot," said Gibbons. "Rajais (Davis) in there against the lefty, well get him there at the top because thats a good spot for Raj when hes in there." Mottola is conscious of Lawries intense nature; his inclination toward constant movement. The mechanical adjustments are minor – specifically moving Lawries hands in closer to his body – and arent meant to change Lawries approach at the plate, which Mottola doesnt believe is an issue. "Every guy is wired differently and thats the way hes wired so we cant take that away," said Mottola. "Were just trying to modify it and control it and put it in different spots of his swing. Saying, okay, you can do all this but lets not do it as much with the body. Hes seeing the ball well because hes laying off some tough pitches, hes getting in to hitters counts but hes not doing what he should do once he gets in those hitters counts so were just trying to shorten it up a little bit." "This is one of those things," said Lawrie of his slump and his effort to work out of it. "Youve just got to keep grinding it out, a lot of ABs and a lot of games to go so Ive got to stick to what Im doing, stick to my plan and just keep getting my work in and keep doing it." ' ' '
