    导出博客文章Australias captain Steven Smith and his deputy David Warner have chosen not to enter into a public debate ahead of the next round of meetings in pay negotiations between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers Association. Jeff Driskel Jersey .Having been wined and dined by CA board directors in Melbourne on Wednesday night, Smith and Warner elected only to make conciliatory noises after the end of the Chappell-Hadlee series against New Zealand. Their words were in contrast to the more urgent tone taken by others, including the ACA chief executive Alistair Nicholson and the former Australian international Simon Katich.For us it was a good opportunity to meet the board and have a nice dinner with them and a good chat, Smith said of the dinner, the sort of courtesy that was not offered to Nicholson, among others. They took our points of view, we listened to them and it was nice to see everyone on the same page and trying to get the best for our game moving forward.Sitting alongside Smith, Warner chimed in to say: Dinner was nice.While CA declined to comment publicly on the MOU negotiations, there is a wide expectation that the board will seek to break-up the revenue sharing model that has been fundamental to Australian cricket since 1997. Under that model, Australias players get around 26% of Australian Cricket Revenue, a selection of the money generated by the game that is decided upon by CA.The ACA is seeking the retention of the model while also hoping to expand and future-proof the sources of revenue. This is partly designed to cater for the inclusion of more expansive womens pay in the next MOU, at a time when the game is expanding in professionalism and prominence via the Womens Big Bash League.Smith, Warner and other senior Australian players are critical to negotiations because it is believed that CA will try to tempt them into accepting considerable individual pay rises in exchange for the revenue sharing model being stripped away. In this, the model would be similar to that presently in use for the women, who are paid separately by CA without a wide range of conditions and benefits open to the men via their longer standing MOU agreements.Another key figure in the debate is the former captain Mark Taylor, who forged a middle path between the players and the board when a pay dispute in 1997 was defused by the adoption of the revenue sharing model and the founding of the ACA itself. Now a board director, Taylor is also known to be a mentor of Smith, and a proponent of the move away from revenue sharing.The CA chairman David Peever was previously the managing director of the mining giant Rio Tintos Australian operations and an outspoken critic of union involvement in the workplace. In a 2012 mining conference address, Peever had outlined his views on third party involvement in negotiations between employers and employees.Direct engagement between companies and employees, flexibility and the need for improved productivity has to be at the heart of the system, he said at the time. Only then can productivity and innovation be liberated from the shop floor-up, and without the competing agenda of a third party constantly seeking to extend its reach into areas best left to management.CAs negotiating team is being led by the executive general manager of strategy and people, Kevin Roberts - himself a former board director. The ACA is expected to seek the advice of the former players association chief executives Tim May and Paul Marsh at various points of the process. Randy Bullock Jersey . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Jake Fisher Jersey . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. . U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield in Manhattan agreed that lawyers on both sides could make their formal requests by Nov. 8. A hearing is scheduled for a day earlier. Jordan Siev, a lawyer for Rodriguez, wrote in a joint letter to the judge from lawyers on both sides that MLB lawyers planned to ask that the lawsuit be dismissed. AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State defensive end Mitchell Meyers has had a lot more on his mind than just football over the past 18 months.Finally cancer-free, he is hoping to be much more than just an inspiration to the Cyclones in 2016.Meyers, who was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma in February 2015, wasnt cleared to fully rejoin his teammates until fall camp. But Meyers fight to beat cancer was such a stirring tale that his fellow Cyclones recently named him a captain.Iowa State (3-9 in 2015) is also expecting big things on the field from Meyers, a senior who on Monday officially regained his starting status for Saturdays opener against Northern Iowa.Ive actually been thinking about this. ... If you were to tell me Id get cancer two years ago, I would have never believed you. And if you were to tell me that Im in the position Im in now six months ago, I definitely wouldnt have believed you, Meyers said. Right now Im in a really good position to succeed.Meyers first broke out for Iowa State as a freshman in 2013, playing in all 12 games. He moved into the starting lineup as an interior lineman as a sophomore, and he was expected to be one of the key defenders for the Cyclones in 2015.But during winter workouts that season, Meyers noticed that his neck was unusually sore. Doctors diagnosed him with cancer, and Meyers was forced to put football on hold.Though Meyers couldnt practice with his teammates, he never missed a workout while battling his disease in both Iowa and his home state of Texas for most of 2015. During that time, the coach who recruited him, Paul Rhoads, was fired. Meyers wasnt even able to meet new coach Matt Campbell until the middle of spring practice, which he sat out as part of his recovery.MMeyers earned the immediate respect of Campbell, who first got to know Meyers on the phone as he went through treatment. Brandon LaFell Jersey. This young man that had this upbeat spirit about himself going through this, and it can put you in your place really fast. Tough days come, and are they really that tough? Heres what this guy is going through, Campbell said. Mitchells last words to me [on the phone] were, Im coming back to play. Im not coming back to be just a story.Meyers said Monday that, despite having to learn a new system and build his body back to where it was before he got sick, the muscle memory he built up playing football has helped.He didnt start fall camp atop the depth chart, but as Campbell and his coaches watched Meyers go through workouts, they realized that they not only had a starter on their hands but also one that had the toughness and character the new staff wants for its program.One of the best stories in college football, Campbell said.Meyers acknowledges that he might never be the player that he was before he got sick, though he also said that he feels as good as he has ever felt heading into a season.He will play his final season wearing No. 58, which Iowa State hands to the lineman who best embodies the spirit of beloved former line coach Curtis Bray. Bray was 43 when he died in 2014 of a pulmonary embolism.Battling cancer is a lot like playing football. Obviously the implications are a lot bigger battling cancer, but you learn a lot about mental toughness playing football, Meyers said. It helped me a lot to get through what I went through, and vice versa.
