Premier League braced for TV losses as player protests mount

first_img“We were able to update our clubs today on our situation with broadcasters, which is obviously confidential,” said Premier League CEO Richard Masters.”Whatever happens, there’s going to be significant loss of revenue for clubs. That is inevitable.”We were able to paint a picture today about what would happen in various scenarios, playing out the season and not playing out the season, to allow them to have a picture of that as we stand in the early part of May.”The rebate to broadcasters would surge to an estimated £760 million if the season cannot be completed. Masters has previously warned of a £1 billion loss once the absence of gate receipts is taken into account. Player fears However, England internationals Raheem Sterling and Danny Rose are the two latest high-profile players to raise their concerns over a return to contact sport when the rest of society is being advised to follow social-distancing guidelines. “The moment we do go back it just needs to be a moment where it’s not just for footballing reasons, it’s safe for not just us footballers but the whole medical staff, referees,” Sterling told his YouTube channel.”[I am] not scared, but reserved and thinking what the worst outcome could be.”I’ve had friends whose grandma has passed away, I’ve had family members as well that have passed away.”British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in parliament on Monday that the return of sport on TV would “provide a much-needed boost to national morale” in a country that has been one of the worst hit by the global pandemic, with the government officially recording more than 32,000 deaths from COVID-19.”People’s lives are at risk,” Rose, who is on loan at Newcastle from Tottenham, told an Instagram live.”Football shouldn’t even be spoken about coming back until the numbers have dropped massively.”But Gordon Taylor, the chief executive of England’s Professional Footballers’ Association, said many of his members would be open to playing again provided “everything that can be done is being done” to assure their safety. “We’ve got to try it, see if we can do it and see if we can return to some form of activity,” Taylor told the Mirror.”But it’s also being as careful and having as many assurances as possible that it’s achievable.” Premier League clubs face having to pay a huge refund to broadcasters even if they manage to complete the coronavirus-disrupted season behind closed doors.Broadcasters would be reimbursed for matches not being played as scheduled and the lack of atmosphere in empty stadiums is also a factor.The BBC reported the bill facing the English top-flight, which continued talks on “Project Restart” on Monday, could be as high as £340 million ($420 million). For the first time on Monday, the 20 Premier League clubs discussed models that may have to be used to decide final standings if it is not deemed safe to resume.New government guidelines have paved the way for elite sport to return behind closed doors in England from June 1. Complications The Premier League are due to meet the PFA and the managers’ union later this week to discuss protocols for a return to group training. A further complication for Project Restart is where any matches would be played, with the clubs opposed to a proposal for a limited number of neutral venues to be used.The UK’s national football policing lead, previously stated resuming matches on a home-and-away basis would “present challenges” to the emergency services.But Mark Roberts said on Tuesday that police, government and football authorities were working together on a plan “which minimizes any risks to public safety and unnecessary pressure on public services, but facilitates a sensible restart to the season.”London Mayor Sadiq Khan has come out against the idea of playing matches in the capital at this stage, with the city having been particularly badly hit by the pandemic.Five of the 20 Premier League sides are based in London.”With the country still in the grips of this crisis, and hundreds of people dying every day, he believes that it is too early to be discussing the resumption of the Premier League and top-flight sport in the capital,” Khan’s spokesperson told the Evening Standard.Topics :last_img read more

Black men arrested at Starbucks settle with the company

first_imgPHILADELPHIA – Two black men arrested for sitting at a Philadelphia Starbucks without ordering anything settled with the world’s biggest coffee-shop chain Wednesday for an undisclosed sum and an offer of a free college education.Separately, they reached a deal with the city for a symbolic $1 each and a promise from officials to set up a $200,000 program for young entrepreneurs.The men portrayed the twin settlements as an effort to make sure something positive came out of the April 12 incident, which touched off a furor around the U.S. over racial profiling.“We thought long and hard about it, and we feel like this is the best way to see that change that we want to see,” said Donte Robinson, one of those arrested. “It’s not a right-now thing that’s good for right now, but I feel like we will see the true change over time.”Business partners Robinson and Rashon Nelson, both 23, were led away in handcuffs and accused of trespassing last month after the manager of a Starbucks in the city’s well-to-do Rittenhouse Square neighbourhood called police, saying the men refused to buy anything or leave. After spending hours in jail, they were released and no charges were filed.The men said they were there waiting for a meeting with a third man about a potential real estate opportunity.The incident proved a major embarrassment for Starbucks, which has long projected an image as a socially conscious company.On Wednesday, Starbucks announced it reached a financial settlement with the men. The amount was not disclosed.The company said they will also be given the opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degrees, their tuition fully covered, through a Starbucks partnership with Arizona State University. The online college education program was created in 2014 for Starbucks employees.Also, the men will be given the chance to discuss their experience and share their recommendations for changes at Starbucks with former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.During the uproar, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson came to Philadelphia to apologize to the men. He also announced that more than 8,000 Starbucks stores in the U.S. would close on the afternoon of May 29 so nearly 175,000 employees can get training in unconscious bias.Under the deal with the city, the men’s arrest records will be expunged, and a program will be created to offer counselling and mentoring to entrepreneurs from Philadelphia high schools.“I am pleased to have resolved the potential claims against the city in this productive manner,” Mayor Jim Kenney said. “This was an incident that evoked a lot of pain in our city and put us under a national spotlight for unwanted reasons.”Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross, who is black, at first defended his officers’ conduct, but days later issued a televised apology for the way the Starbucks call was handled.Robinson and Nelson, who grew up in an economically depressed section of the city, said the settlements are a good start, aimed at transforming their community and creating the types of opportunities that did not exist when they were younger.Nelson said he considers the Starbucks incident a case of being at “the wrong place at the right time because of the outcome that can come out of it.”last_img read more

Study funds that Vermont is top state for inbound moves

first_imgST. LOUIS — Vermont’s population is among the smallest in the U.S., but a study from United Van Lines indicate people are moving to the New England state.The suburban St. Louis-based moving company on Wednesday released its 42nd annual National Movers Study, which tracks customers’ state-to-state migration patterns.Vermont has the second-smallest population among states, exceeding only Wyoming. Yet Vermont saw the highest percentage of inbound moves in 2018.Four Western states filled out the top 5: Oregon, Idaho, Nevada and Arizona.New Jersey had highest percentage of outbound moves, followed by Illinois, Connecticut, New York and Kansas.The study showed that Americans continue to move west and south. The Mountain West and South regions saw high percentages of inbound moves. The Northeast and Midwest had high percentages of outbound moves.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Outpouring of generosity for TSA workers others without pay

first_imgThe partial government shutdown is a double-whammy for Cara and Philip Mangone, a married couple from Philadelphia. Both are officers with the Transportation Safety Administration, both working full time at the Philadelphia airport. Neither knows when they might again start drawing their paychecks.Part-time jobs are out of the question — they work opposite shifts timed to make sure one of them is always home with their two kids, ages 2 and 5. So donations of food and diapers have been a real help as savings are being stretched thin.“Every penny that we don’t have to spend is helpful,” Cara Mangone said Wednesday as she picked up donated goods being distributed at the airport by fellow members of the American Federation of Government Employees.The shutdown has brought an outpouring of generosity to TSA agents and other federal employees who are working without pay. Food, financial help, haircuts and toiletries are among the donated goods and services. TSA screeners start at about $24,000 a year, and most make between $26,000 and $35,000, less than many other government employees, although some earn more because of seniority, overtime or level of management responsibility.On Wednesday, donations of diapers, juice, garbage bags, canned soup and boxes of Ramen noodles were being unloaded onto luggage carts at the valet drop-off curb at Orlando International Airport, to be distributed to TSA workers there the next day.“I just wanted to support the federal workers who are furloughed because of the inaction of our government leaders,” said Brian Couch, wearing a Kansas City Chiefs ball cap as he dropped off his donation.The airport in Pittsburgh provided a free lunch to TSA workers on what should have been their payday last Friday. “Our Operation Thank You free lunch program initially was only Fridays but because we’re hearing from several food vendors who want to donate, it’s possible it will be increased to more days,” airport spokesman Bob Kerlik said in an email.At Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, spokeswoman Elise Durham said some concession operators there were also donating free lunches to TSA workers and the airport was providing complimentary parking for those workers who need it.Some travellers wanted to get in on the act, but TSA rules don’t allow that.“There are people trying to donate gift cards to us at the checkpoints,” Cara Mangone said. “We can’t accept it.”Businesses large and small are trying to help.The Ruby Slipper, a New Orleans-based restaurant chain with several locations in the city and on the Gulf Coast, said on its Facebook page that it has served some 3,000 free meals since offering help to unpaid federal employees more than two weeks ago. At The Top Knot Beauty Company in the New Orleans suburb of Metairie, owner Jennifer Delage has been offering free haircuts to federal employees. She said other businesses have followed suit with free or discounted services.“That was the main goal,” Delage said. “To inspire others to pay it forward.”Such sentiments are evident all over the country — and beyond.A LIFELINE FOR THE COASTGUARDUnlike other military services, the U.S. Coast Guard, part of the Department of Homeland Security, isn’t funded during the shutdown. In a letter posted on social media, the guard’s commandant, Adm. Karl Schultz, said USAA, a company that provides banking and investment services to current and former military members and their families, made a $15 million donation to support those in need, to be distributed with assistance from the American Red Cross.In another gesture, Roger Williams University invited active-duty Coast Guard members in Rhode Island and Massachusetts and their families to its Bristol, Rhode Island, campus for a free dinner Tuesday night. About 75 people showed up.PIZZAS ACROSS THE BORDERCanadian air traffic controllers have been taking up donations to have pizzas delivered to their American counterparts at locations around the U.S.Pizzas have been bought for controllers at 84 U.S. facilities. “We’ve stopped tracking the number of pizzas,” said Tania Calverley, director of communications for the Canadian Air Traffic Controllers Association. “We’re certainly well over 400.”FREE RIDESThe Kansas City Area Transportation Authority has announced that all federal employees will be able to ride public transit for free by showing their government IDs.“We want to … assist those who are hurting by taking a little weight off of their shoulders during this time,” Robbie Makinen, CEO and President of the authority, said in a news release about the program, which began Tuesday.BRIDGE LOANSSome financial institutions are offering low-interest, or even no-interest loans, to unpaid workers.Webster Bank in Connecticut said it would offer no-interest loans to any federal workers who are working and not being paid during the shutdown. In announcing the assistance program on Tuesday, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said he hopes other banks will offer similar programs. The loans are to be repaid after the workers receive back pay.In addition to its donation to help Coast Guard personnel, USAA has announced low-interest loan offers to active Coast Guard, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Corps and Public Health Service Corps personnel whose pay is disrupted.___McGill reported from New Orleans.
