SBC’s on the ball: Barnsley, Antoine Griezmann and Anderlecht

first_img Sky Sports grows American football offering with NFL channel August 14, 2020 EFL announces that all non-Sky Sports fixtures will be available to stream August 27, 2020 Share StumbleUpon Related Articles Share Submit Premier League looks to broadcast every behind-closed-door fixture August 28, 2020 From sponsorship to the ever-expanding world of football media coverage, when it comes to the business of football, SBC has you covered. This edition looks at “exploitative” ticket prices, Barcelona being reported to FIFA and an intriguing new owner at Barnsley. ____________________Getting the ‘Moneyball’ rolling at BarnsleyIt could be a big 2018 for Barnsley FC, after the Championship club were taken over by a consortium which includes Chinese billionaire, Chien Lee and the baseball pioneer Billy Beane, who was the inspiration behind the Hollywood film ‘Moneyball’.Chief Executive Gauthier Ganaye told the club website: “We would like to thank every member of our loyal fan base for their patience and continued support over recent months. An exciting chapter is opening for Barnsley Football Club and we are looking forward to the future together.”Beane was the mastermind behind the Oakland A’s transformation with the use of statistical, computer generated data to utilise undervalued players, a tactic that many have speculated could be translated to football. On the other hand, Lee has a track record in football as the co-owner of French Ligue 1 side Nice, who have enjoyed a lot of success in recent times including reaching the play-off stage in the Champions League and finishing third in the French top tier.Barnsley currently sit 20th in the Championship table and are just four points above the relegation zone. Barcelona reported to FIFA by Spanish rivals Barcelona have been reported to FIFA by Atletico Madrid, after the it was alleged that the Catalan club made an illegal approach for Manchester United target, Antoine Griezmann. Atletico have claimed that in spite of the 26-year-old France international signing a new contract, keeping him at the Wanda Metropolitano until the summer of 2021, Barcelona have made contact with the family of the player, eyeing up a potential transfer for the player. A spokesperson for FIFA confirmed earlier in the week, that football’s governing body had received a complaint from Atletico over the approach. Furthemore, Atletico were unable to sign players this summer after  breaching FIFA rules over the signing of minors. A ruling that delayed the return of Diego Costa to the club, after he was frozen out by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte. At the time the club responded with a statement, claiming that: “This ruling is unfair and causes an irreparable damage to our club.”New takeover just the medicine for Belgian ChampionsMarc Coucke, Belgian pharmaceutical entrepreneur  has agreed to buy Belgian champions, Anderlecht for a reported fee of up to 100 million euros (£88.6 million). Anderlecht, who were previously owned by a by a group of investors headed by the Vanden Stock family, are one of Belgium’s most prestigious clubs, having won numerous European titles in the 1970s. In a statement,  Anderlecht president Roger Vanden Stock commented: “It pleases me to look back at the time when my father and my family owned the club, but it is time to pass on the baton, so RSC Anderlecht can always remain RSC Anderlecht.” Coucke founded over-the-counter medicines group Omega Pharma, which he went onto sell to U.S. company Perrigo in late 2014 for 3.6 billion euros, he also owns Belgian club KV Oostende and previously was on the board at France’s Ligue 1 Lille.Currently sitting in third place, Anderlecht are enduring a tough season, losing 5-0 to domestic rivals Club Bruges on Sunday has left them 13 points behind leaders Bruges.Sevilla deemed to be doing no wrong over “exploitative” ticket pricesUEFA have stated that La Liga club Sevilla are completely with their rights to charge Man United fans up to £133 for tickets for the Champions League last 16 tie at the Sanchez Pizjuan in February. United fans reacted with angrily when Sevilla announced that prices for the 2,450 standard seats would be £89 with 200 tickets deemed “category one” priced at £133. The Manchester United Supporters Trust branded the prices as “exploitative.”The price rise marks a 65% increase on tickets from when Liverpool took on the Spanish club in the group stages of the tournament, when travelling fans were charged £54.Nonetheless, article 19, subsection 3 of UEFA’s regulations states: “Unless the associations or clubs concerned agree otherwise, the price of tickets for supporters of the visiting team must not exceed the price paid for tickets of a comparable category that are sold to supporters of the home team.”Tech giants prepared for Premier League television rights battle. Tech giants such as Amazon, Google, Facebook and Netflix are all set to take part in the next round of bidding for Premier League television rights.From the 2019-20 season onwards, 200 live matches will be available each season, with the price of the UK package expected to rise above its current figure of £5.14 billion. Those games are divided into five packages of 32 matches and two packages of 20. No broadcaster will be allowed to acquire more than 148 per season.With this new competition from the world’s biggest digital media companies, Sky is faced with perhaps its biggest challenge to maintain its dominance of Premier League TV rights.To protect from these new challengers, Sky and BT have agreed a so-called cross supply deal. Under the terms of the deal, BT will market and sell Sky’s Now TV service – including the Sky Atlantic, Sky One, Sky Living, Sky Sports and Sky Cinema channels – to its customers. While BT will wholesale its BT Sport channels to Sky, allowing the firm to sell them directly to Sky customers._________________The Betting industry’s relationship with Football and its wider stakeholders will be discussed at the ‘Betting on Football 2018’ (#bofcon2018) conference.

Late in his career, Ryan Braun still occupies special place in Brewers clubhouse

first_imgNot what he was. Not finished either.“I feel really good,” Braun recently told reporters. “I feel fortunate and thankful that I’m in this position, health-wise. I’d never take it for granted. But for anybody, when you have the adrenaline that’s added for this time of year, it helps you feel better physically.“I feel like I’m going on 25, not 35 right now.”When Braun was 25 … those were the days.A product of Granada Hills High, Braun hit .320 with 32 homers and 114 RBIs as a 25-year-old in 2009. That season was squarely between when he won the Rookie of the Year award in 2007 and the MVP in 2011.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — As Christian Yelich has become what Ryan Braun used to be, it’s worth noting, at least in the Milwaukee Brewers clubhouse, Braun hasn’t totally slipped into the shadows.“He’s still The Man,” pitcher Wade Miley said before Game 4 of the National League Championship Series on Tuesday. “He’s still Ryan Braun. There is a respect that everybody gives him.”A former MVP who is coming back to his Southern California roots for the series against the Dodgers, Braun has mostly slipped under the radar this week.From the Brewers side, the narratives have been about Yelich, the Westlake High product who is the presumptive 2018 NL MVP, and Milwaukee’s vaunted bullpen. Meanwhile, Braun keeps clipping along at age 34. With his playing time managed, Braun still hit 20 homers, with a .782 OPS.Now, though, the playoffs have provided enough built-in days off that Braun has once again become an everyday player.He was 5 for 13 in the division series sweep of the Colorado Rockies. Even with a 2-for-12 start to the NLCS, he was hitting .280 six games into the postseason. He’s also hit into some hard luck, including a 100 mph shot that was snagged by Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner on Tuesday night, though he finished 3 for 6 in the Brewers’ 13-inning loss in Game 4.Although the numbers aren’t what Braun did in his prime, he still holds a leadership role in the clubhouse. And he still has a swing that is the same as when he was the focal point of the team.“The constant is he’s got a beautiful baseball swing,” Counsell said. “It’s the swing that guys on the other team want to come watch in batting practice.” Since then, Braun went through the turmoil of a suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. He’s seen his numbers gradually decline.He nearly saw a trade to the Dodgers, when they were shopping a slumping Yasiel Puig in 2016.Between those prime years and now, Craig Counsell went from being Braun’s teammate to his manager.Counsell appreciates the ways in which Braun has adapted.“Like every player, physically you change,” Counsell said. “And I think mentally you get sharper and smarter and wiser. He’s definitely played a role. And he’s done a really good job of recognizing where his role is as the team has evolved this year. I compliment him as much as anything for doing that.”Braun’s role this year has been of a less-than-full-time player. After repeated trips to the disabled list over the past few years, the Brewers decided this year to build in at least one day off a week for Braun. He started just 99 games.“And I think that’s not easy always for players to accept and to buy into,” Counsell said. “Ryan showed a lot of humility in accepting that and understanding that at times it was best for the team and best for himself.”Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start last_img read more
