    导出博客文章THE STATE OF PLAY FOR A-LEAGUE EXPANSION BIDS* TasmaniaStatus: Mega-wealthy former Victory investors Harry Stamoulis and Robert Belteky have already met with FFA, saying theyre ready to go from next year with support from all levels of government. Boomer Esiason Jersey .Pros: A cheap stadium deal, as well as plenty of dollars and know-how from Stamoulis and Belteky.Cons: Football is far from the top game in this AFL-mad state, with little infrastructure and growth potential in a limited market.* AucklandStatus: Very early days to quote Auckland Citys chairman Ivan Vuksich. The New Zealand powerhouse is the only realistic option for expansion across the ditch, but would require a leap of faith from FFA.Pros: Successful football pedigree, the chance for a Kiwi derby and weekly A-League content in New Zealand, a strong catchment of 1.5 million.Cons: Questions of commitment. From the club, FFA, NZ Football and potential investors.* CanberraStatus: Up in the air. Governing body Capital Football isnt bidding and previous A-League aspirant investor Ivan Slavich is currently backing Central Coasts two-game deal in the nations capital.Pros: Solid stadium, junior numbers and lack of competition in one of Australias richest, if smaller, cities.Cons: FFA isnt keen. David Gallop pointedly rebuked the citys A-League aspirations around the time it hosted an A-League qualifer last year.* South MelbourneStatus: Ready to go, so they say. The powerhouse NSL club has been working to join the A-League since the day it was overlooked for the league and will mount a solid case.Pros: History and the chance to heal the ongoing rift between new football and old soccer. A solid stadium deal and long-term lease. History of success.Cons: Does Melbourne need another team with Citys attendances so low? Would Victory fight their admission?* GeelongStatus: Interested groups are getting organised but a Geelong bid is still in the embryonic stages.Pros: Theres room in Victoria for another team, and state and local government are likely to offer support. Geelong is a sports town with a record of producing Socceroos.Cons: Simonds Stadium might have narrow boundaries but its ultimately not a venue suitable for football. Questions over support base.* Brisbane StrikersStatus: The former NSL champions have assembled a bid team, headed by the colourful Miron Bleiberg, and will soon submit a formal bid to FFA.Pros: A strong brand, an existing structure, a successful academy and a ready-made rivalry with Brisbane Roar.Cons: Venue. If the Strikers cant find somewhere to play other than Suncorp Stadium, theyll struggle for a point of difference with the Roar.* South SydneyStatus: They were nearly ready to replace Wellington Phoenix last season, and the murmurs are continuing that FFA wants a third team in Sydney.Pros: Sydneys big enough for three teams, right? FFAs number crunchers have determined the south is an untapped market, with a big participation base.Cons: Sydney FC are dead against it, as one third of their members come from the shire, while Wollongong wants a standalone team.* WollongongStatus: The Wolves say they will have a look at FFAs expansion criteria once its released, but they could have some high-powered backers lined up.Pros: The Illawarra, a bit like the Hunter, is a true football region. WIN Stadium would be perfect.Cons: Forces outside of their control seem to prefer a southern Sydney team, based part-time in Wollongong.* AdelaideStatus: Adelaide City and West Adelaide, two former NSL stalwarts, have made noises about an A-League bid.Pros: Both are historic clubs who figure the Reds could do with a derby rival. Wests want Robbie Fowler as their inaugural coach.Cons: Does little old Adelaide really have room for two teams? Whos not supporting Adelaide United in SA?* PerthStatus: Football West is aiming for a second Perth team in the next three to five years in an audacious bid to turbo-charge the game in WA.Pros: Perths a growing city and numbers would suggest not everyone is on board with the Glory, for whatever reason.Cons: The Glory are just getting settled off-field and a rival team would chew into their market at an inopportune time.* Not happeningNorth Queensland: The Northern Fury say they wont be ready for this round of expansion, and the Hong Kong casino mogul backers of Cairns-based FNQ Heat have seemingly moved on.Gold Coast: There is a desire from some parties to revive Gold Coasts A-League presence but no action at this stage. Maybe one day. Kevin Huber Jersey . Coach Mike Munchak says Fokou stretched ligaments in his left knee Oct. 13 against Seattle, which could keep out up to five weeks even though the linebacker didnt need surgery. Joe Mixon Jersey . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. http://www.officialauthenticbengalsstore.com/authentic-ryan-hewitt-jersey.html . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Austin Allen was talking with teammate Frank Ragnow ahead of preseason camp when a thought about the last few seasons occurred to the first-year starting quarterback of the Razorbacks.You know, I cant even remember the last time Ive been hit, Allen said.Yes, its been that long -- four years, actually -- since Allen entered a football season as his teams projected starting quarterback.However, after three seasons of largely backing up his older brother, Brandon, the younger Allen knows expectations wont be diminished in the slightest because of any rust he might have. And thats just fine with the 6-foot-1, 209-pound junior, who has used his time away from the field to transform his usual fun-loving ways into more of an all-business approach.Well, nearly all business.I cant really wait to get just decked one time, Austin Allen said, unable to contain his excitement about the season opener against Louisiana Tech on Sept. 3.If Allens outgoing personality is a bit of a shock to Razorbacks fans this season, it will largely be because they are expecting the more-reserved style they have become used to over the last three seasons from Brandon Allen.It was the same adjustment coach Bret Bielema had to make three seasons ago when Austin Allen showed up on campus. Back then, the quarterback -- fresh off leading nearby Fayetteville High School to back-to-back state championships -- made his mark by cracking jokes during practices and occasionally giving his social life the same priority as football.It was an approach that rankled Bielema from time to time, and he made a point to mention his frustration with the quarterback. And of course, the Allens are very different.You wouldnt even know they are brothers, Bielema said. (Brandon) was kinnd of a more laid back kind of guy. Clayton Fejedelem Jersey. Austin, on the other hand, is very competitive.From the younger Allens perspective, one cause of the early growing pains was simply a matter of growing up. Another was the realization that playing time was doubtful early in his career.He finally turned more serious prior to last season, when he was set to serve as the primary backup. And the extra work -- from studying game plans, doing extra film work and mimicking his older brothers work ethic -- paid off in the form of repeated compliments from Bielema and Arkansas other coaches.The first year was on me, just not being mature enough, Allen said. It happens for every freshmen, I feel like, who thinks, `Oh, I dont need extra film. Ill be fine. That just doesnt happen in college. You have to do extra.Because of the durability of his older brother, Allen attempted only three passes last season. However, he did see limited action in four games two years ago -- including playing the entire second half of a 30-0 win over Mississippi after Brandon Allen was injured.That experience played a role in helping Austin Allen earn the starting job during the spring, when Bielema said he was the unquestioned top quarterback on the roster. It was a position Allen continued to earn throughout the summer while working out with teammates five days a week.One of the things I always urged him to do was take advantage of the experience his brother was having, and I think he tried to do that the best he could, Bielema said. Its never the same, but I like the way his leadership has continued during the summer. Im excited to see him take the reins.
