Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week they discuss Stephen Strasburg, super-sizing and finger-wagging in the NFL and the acting prowess of the Manning family. Bruce Arthur, National Post: My thumb is down to the NFL, which has decided that in a league where men attempt to turn one anothers limbs, brains and organs into a fine jelly, taunting is too savage an act to be allowed. Therefore, new limits on, lets see: "sack dances, the home run swing, the Incredible Hulk, spiking the ball, throwing or shoving the ball, pointing, pointing the ball, verbal taunting, military salutes, standing over an opponent, or dancing", if theyre directed at an opponent. NFL players are the lowest paid of the four professional sports with the shortest careers and the most brutal working conditions. But the NFL has apparently decided that in their particular war, the soldiers must focus on their body language, and stop to take tea. Steve Simmons, Sun Media: My thumb is up to Stephen Strasburg, who only has five wins with the disappointing Washington Nationals, but has pitched way better than you might think. Strasburg has had 16 starts in which hes given up two or fewer runs against and hes dead last in the National League in run support. By comparison, Max Scherzer has a 17-1 record with the Detroit Tigers, leads in run support, and hes had 15 starts of two runs or fewer. One of them is supposed to be having a great year, the other guy disappointing. The truth? The great Strasburg is still pretty great. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: My thumb is down to the ongoing super-sizing of NFL linemen, a thought driven home this week by the passing of Art Donovan. Donovan played in the 1950s at almost 300 pounds, a roly-poly tackle known to Colts teammates as “Fatso”. No one played at three bills then. Now early into exhibition season, some 500 players of 300 pounds or more dot NFL rosters. Donovan said the game once was played by oversized coal miners and West Texas psychopaths. Football currently is played by men who are at heightened risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Chalk it up to evolution? Hardly. The concussion is not the only health crisis facing the NFL. Dave Hodge, TSN: My thumb is up to an idea well call "rapid fire" survey thumbs. The NFLs latest YouTube sensation – featuring the Manning brothers, Peyton and Eli – is pushing football on your phone. Now, around the desk we go. Do you like this stuff, this one in particular, or not, and if you do, who should do hockey on your phone? Arthur: Im am willing to watch almost anything Peyton Manning does in the entertainment sphere. Im okay with Eli, I think this is probably his best performance. I think Peyton Manning is the most bankable celebrity name in all of sports. Simmons: Thumbs up. It looked like an Andy Samberg Saturday Night Live skit! I liked it. Farber: Yo! I liked it. Hodge: Alright … I thought I was watching Alec Baldwin in “Rock of Ages” and wasnt sure I wanted to see any more of it. But Ill go with you. Thumbs up to football on your phone. Now, hockey on our phones… Think about that and who should do it. Thats another story for another day. Brett Jones Jersey . — Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. Stitched Minnesota Vikings Jerseys . Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed. The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. http://www.cheapvikingsjerseys…..ersey-sale . Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. Paul Krause Jersey . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. Xavier Rhodes Jersey . Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR.Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been criticised for not using Anthony Martial as a striker, but is he more effective on the wing? The statistics throw up some interesting results… Anthony Martial has been one of the most talked-about players in the Premier League since Manchester United made him the most expensive teenager in football history on the final day of the summer transfer window.At first, the discussion centred on how the little-known Frenchman could possibly justify a transfer fee that could reportedly rise as high as £61.5m. Louis van Gaal and the player himself called it crazy money, and many observers saw it as a desperate move by United after missing out on bigger names. Martial, though, didnt take long to silence his doubters. He marked his Premier League debut by coming off the bench to score an unforgettable solo goal in a 3-1 win over Liverpool on September 12, and a week later netted a clinical brace in a 3-2 victory over Southampton at St Marys Stadium.Suddenly, the crazy transfer fee looked like a shrewd piece of business for a side desperately lacking spark in the final third. Martials emergence has been one of few bright spots in Uniteds disappointing season, and with the 20-year-olds talent no longer up for debate, the discussion has turned to where exactly he is at his most effective.Van Gaal has provoked the ire of many Manchester United supporters by fielding Martial on the left flank for much of the campaign. The frustration is understandable. The former Monaco man is routinely their most threatening attacking player, after all, and with seven Premier League goals he is also joint-top of their scoring charts. Anthony Martial scores for Manchester United against Stoke in February So is Martial wasted out wide? Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry is among the leading voices to have said so, but Van Gaal has refused to bow to external pressure. The United boss has explained his stance by saying he puts the teams needs before those of any individual, but he might have been better off pointing to the stats. Anthony Martial comparison – Premier League 2015/16 PL 2015/16 Martial starting as striker Martial starting out wide Starts 9 13 Goals 2 4 Assists 1 2 Total shots per 90 mins 1.7 1.9 Shots on target per 90 mins 0.6 0.7 Chances created per 90 mins 1.1 1.2 Succ. dribbles per 90 mins 2.3 2.8 Touches per 90 mins 45.2 50.9 According to Opta, Martial has begun nine Premier League games as a striker and 13 out wide, and the stats show his starts on the flanks have been more productive in all attacking departments. There, Martial has averaged more goals, more assists, more shots, more chances created and more dribbles per 90 minutes than he has up front. Is Europa hangover real? Does playing in the competition affect a clubs domestic form? His two-goal performance against Southampton in September was an early indication of just how devastating he can be through the middle, but eight Premier League starts as a striker since have yielded no goals and only a single assist. Even more damningly, Martial has only mustered one shot on target in his last five starts up front combined. In those 450 minutes, the Red Devils claimed just two points and only managed to score twice. Anthony Martials last five starts as a striker – Premier League 2015/16 Opponent Result Mins played Goals Assists Shots on target Leicester City D 1-1 90 0 0 0 West Ham D 0-0 90 0 0 0 Bournemouth L 1-2 90 0 0 0 Stoke City L 0-2 90 0 0 1 Southampton L 0-1 90 0 0 0 It is equally significant that Uniteds results have been notably better with Martial stationed out wide.dddddddddddd With the Frenchman starting through the middle, they have recorded three wins, two draws and four defeats, giving them an average of just 1.22 points per game. With Martial on the flank, however, their record of five wins, five draws and three defeats equates to 1.54 points per game. Manchester United with Martial starting up front v starting out wide – Premier League 2015/16 Manchester United Played Won Drawn Lost Points per game With Martial starting as striker 9 3 2 3 1.22 With Martial starting out wide 13 5 5 3 1.54 In the continued absence of the injured Wayne Rooney, it remains to be seen whether Van Gaal will keep faith with youngster Marcus Rashford or opt for Martial to lead the line in Uniteds Europa League return-leg with Liverpool and the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Super Sunday. United need Rooney back Wayne Rooneys return will boost United for the final stretch of the season, says Denis Law. But with the stats in mind, perhaps it wouldnt be too much of a surprise to see Martial finish the season on the flank. And for a reminder of what he can do when cutting in from the left, you only have to cast your mind back to the last time Liverpool visited Old Trafford… Martial scored on his United debut against Liverpool Also See: Rooney eyeing April return Pallister: Fans will be crucial Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
