BNC JCR cash control

first_imgFollowing the expenditure of a £500 bust of BNC’s ex-JCR President Paul Gladwell, a motion to prevent unnecessary expenditure was put forward before the JCR.Proposed by Gavin Fourie and seconded by Richard Hoyle, it said that all expenditure over £250 must be approved at two successive JCR meetings. The motion stated, “£500 was roughly the cost of the pre-drinks before the Christmas party, so while the JCR does have some money, there are some much better uses for the community.” At present, the Brasenose JCR constitution says that “donations” over £250 must be passed twice, the constitution may be ammended to include any expenditure over £250. The JCR has agreed to pay £4,000 towards the loss of the BNC ball,  and is also deciding whether to renew a Sky Sports and ESPN package.JCR President Dan Wainwright said, “The motion was simply to clarify that it meant expenditure. The bust of Paul Gladwell was a one off expenditure, so does not have a hugely significant effect on our year on year finances. The Sky Sports/ESPN package obviously does, but we are looking into ways of lowering the cost.”The motion was not voted on last Sunday as it was submitted late. It will be considered during the next JCR meeting in 7th week.last_img read more

Boeheim’s Army pulls out 92-91 OT win in heated matchup with 20th & Olney

first_imgPHILADELPHIA — As 20th & Olney’s Steven Smith walked off the court shortly after being ejected, he gestured toward Eric Devendorf, seemingly asking for the Boeheim’s Army guard to meet him elsewhere.Moments earlier, Devendorf and Smith exchanged heated words and had to be separated after a fight for a loose ball led to a confrontation under the basket. It was their second altercation of the game and they were each assessed a second technical, resulting in their ejections.“(Eric’s) a hotheaded type of guy,” Boeheim’s Army head coach Lawrence Moten said of the moment. “He loves the game. He plays with a lot of passion.”It was the culmination of an evening that saw emotions consistently run high. And when the final buzzer sounded, it was Boeheim’s Army that won a back-and-forth affair, topping 20th & Olney 92-91 in overtime in the third round of The Basketball Tournament at the Gallagher Center in Philadelphia.Long before Devendorf and Smith were tossed, 20th & Olney took a 59-49 lead early in the second half when Smith connected on a smooth baby hook from the left block. With the La Salle-based team holding all momentum, it appeared as if things were about to spiral out of control for Boeheim’s Army.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut beginning with Demetris Nichols’ 3-point play on the ensuing possession, Boeheim’s Army responded with a 17-7 run. And with the score even at 66-66 at the nine-minute mark, Boeheim’s Army forward Terrence Roberts cleaned up a missed Devendorf layup attempt and slammed home the putback.As he ran to the other end, Roberts yelled to himself and urged the Syracuse fans in attendance to get louder.“Being able to come back like that, everyone just did their part,” Roberts said.Roberts’ dunk catapulted Boeheim’s Army to a 79-70 lead with five and a half minutes left. That’s when Devendorf and Smith had their first conflict.As Smith elevated for a dunk on a breakaway, Devendorf caught him from behind and blocked his shot before being whistled for a foul. Devendorf said something in Smith’s ear, which led to the big man getting in Devendorf’s face. That forced the officials to assess them both technical fouls.Shortly thereafter, 20th & Olney went on a run of its own and eventually forced overtime. With Devendorf ejected, Boeheim’s Army fell behind 91-90 in the final minute of the four-minute period.The former La Salle crop had both the lead and possession with roughly 45 seconds on the clock, but Baye Moussa Keita saved Boeheim’s Army by blocking a shot with 14 seconds left. Willie Deane collected the ball and swung it up the floor to Olu Famutimi. Famutimi drove to the rim and drew a foul, earning himself two free throws.“I just had to focus in,” he said. “I knew I had to make both of them.”He did make both, and Syracuse had fought back to take a 92-91 lead. Keita then forced another turnover on 20th & Olney’s final possession. When the clock hit triple zeros, Keita and his teammates ran toward half court, where they embraced, while Moten raised his arms and held them in the air.When the team left the court a few minutes later, Moten found Steve Smith’s father in the hallway of the Gallagher Center. The two discussed the confrontations between Devendorf and Smith and came to an understanding, Moten said.“There’s no animosity or anything,” Moten said. “… You’re playing for one million dollars. There’s going to be tension.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on July 19, 2015 at 9:49 pm Contact Michael: [email protected]last_img read more

Greek football league suspended after gun drama

first_img“We must all decide to ignore the political cost…It’s a question of will. Personally, I am determined to go ahead,” Tsipras said ahead of a meeting with a rival party leader.His deputy minister for sport, Yiorgos Vassiliadis, had earlier told reporters after an emergency meeting with Tsipras that the Superleague championship would “not start again without a new framework agreed by all.”Vassiliadis said the government was in close contact with European football body UEFA, which he said had been “shocked” by the incident.Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of PAOK owner, Greek-Russian businessman Ivan Savvidis, after he stormed the pitch on Sunday, accompanied by bodyguards, to confront the referee in protest at a 90th-minute disallowed goal in a top-of-the-table clash against AEK Athens.PAOK sports director Lubos Michel, a Slovak former FIFA referee, is also believed to have threatened referee Yiorgos Kominis.The match was interrupted as AEK’s squad walked off the pitch. The goal was later allowed.Vassiliadis said the government had “fought to clean up” Greek football for three years “and would not allow all this effort to be threatened”.“We await proposals from the federation and the league,” he said. “A tougher framework is needed.”He did not rule out the prospect of Greek clubs sitting out next season’s European matches, but insisted the national team would not be affected.PAOK and AEK are in a neck-and-neck race for the league title, which would be their first in over 24 years.Olympiakos have won the last seven championships under the ownership of Greek shipowner Vangelis Marinakis, who, like Savvidis, is one of Greece’s most prominent businessmen.The league suspension is the latest stopgap measure adopted by the Tsipras government to maintain order in a championship spiralling out of control.– Clashes –Less then a month ago, fans of the four most popular clubs — AEK, PAOK, Olympiakos and Panathinaikos — were banned from away games after recurring violence.This was after Olympiakos fans clashed with police on February 4 after a shock home defeat to AEK dealt a serious blow to their title defence.Yet a few weeks later, another match in PAOK’s Toumba stadium had to be abandoned after a cashier roll thrown from the stands hit the Olympiakos skipper.PAOK were initially docked three points, but managed to overturn the decision on appeal.A tobacco industrialist with extensive holdings in the northern port city of Thessaloniki, Savvidis controls the city’s top hotel and recently also bought one of Greece’s top newspapers, Ethnos.The 58-year-old, a former lawmaker with the party of Russian president Vladimir Putin, is considered a political ally of Tsipras.A police source on Monday said Savvidis was not sought over the gun, for which he has a license, but for the pitch invasion, a misdemeanour that carries no prison term.Savvidis, who owns companies that are leading sponsors of the Greek league, defended his behaviour.“Ivan (Savvidis) didn’t threaten anybody with a gun,” his media department told Russia’s Sport Express newspaper.“It means that the provocative headlines in certain media are totally untrue.“He carries weapons as he has a permission for it. It’s not prohibited in Greece…..Savvidis has allowed himself some excessive emotions but, once again, he didn’t threaten anybody with a gun.”Last year, Savvidis was part of a Franco-German consortium that won a bid for the privatisation of the Thessaloniki port authority.But the deal was postponed after a Russian bank backing Savvidis was placed under temporary administration.In a rare step, the US embassy in Athens later expressed concern over the issue, suggesting a lack of transparency over the funding behind the deal.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The Greek football league has been suspended after PAOK president Ivan Savvidis, with a handgun in his waistband, confronted the referee after he disallowed a last-minute goal against AEK Athens in the top-of-the-table clash on Sunday © AFP / stringerATHENS, Greece, Mar 12 – Greece’s top-flight football championship was suspended indefinitely Monday, a minister said, hours after the owner of the PAOK team invaded the pitch with a gun strapped to his belt.Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said he was “determined” to enforce order in the country’s oft-chaotic leading sport, which has repeatedly been marred by violence on and off the pitch.last_img read more
