I think Neymar knows he made a mistake leaving Barcelona: Lionel Messi

first_imgI think Neymar knows he made a mistake leaving Barcelona: Lionel MessiLeo Messi has denied the opposition club’s signing Antoine Griezmann this summer and also said that Neymar made a mistake in leaving the club in 2017.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service MadridOctober 10, 2019UPDATED: October 10, 2019 16:28 IST Barcelona’s Lionel Messi makes a free kick (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSMessi denied trying to influence the club to try and bring Neymar back to the Camp NouMessi said he keeps in contact with his former teammateMessi also said that Neymar probably thinks he made a mistake in leaving the club in 2017FC Barcelona forward Leo Messi has denied opposing the club’s signing of Antoine Griezmann this summer.In an interview on the radio station RAC1 on Tuesday night, Messi also said that Neymar probably thinks he made a mistake in leaving the club in 2017 to join Paris Saint Germain, reports Xinhua news agency.”It’s not true that I didn’t want Griezmann to come. It has never been a problem from my point of view,” said Messi, who said the French forward was “one of the best” players in the world.He then discussed Neymar, whose possible return to Barcelona was one of the long-running sagas of the summer.”He is one of the best as well, he’s different; he does things nobody expects. Having him in our team would give us more options,” said Messi, who admitted that the way Neymar left Barca by paying the release clause on his contract had upset a lot of fans who “didn’t want him to come back and that’s understandable.”However, Messi said he keeps in contact with his former teammate and implied the Brazilian knew he had made a mistake in leaving Barca.”You’d have to ask him but I think that’s the case.

Scrap disastrous Phoenix pay system union head urges Trudeau government

first_imgOTTAWA – Give us a year, and we’ll build a working replacement for the trouble-plagued Phoenix pay system, one of the country’s biggest civil service unions told the Trudeau Liberals on Tuesday.Tired of months of repeated promises that the system’s shortcomings would be fixed soon, the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) wants the government to scrap the system and start over almost from scratch — a call the government isn’t dismissing out of hand.“After nearly two years of problems with IBM’s Phoenix pay system, our members have lost confidence in the promise of fixing Phoenix,” union president Debi Daviau said Tuesday.“Despite all efforts to fix Phoenix, the number of open cases of pay problems has grown to 330,000 as of October 2017 — with no end in sight,” said Daviau.“Enough is enough.”Her union represents about 50,000 federal employees.Daviau said the government’s own IT professionals are more than capable of building a new system to end the pay crisis that has gripped federal employees since Phoenix was launched in April 2016.It should take roughly a year to build and properly test a new system, based on Oracle’s PeopleSoft human resources management software, Daviau told a news conference, although she could not provide a cost estimate for the project.“We already have the expertise and the people within the federal public service capable of designing and building it,” she said. “They just need the opportunity to do so.”The call was supported by the opposition New Democrats and the Public Service Alliance of Canada, by far the largest civil service union with 180,000 government employees on its rolls.“We welcome any system that would pay our members,” PSAC national president Robyn Benson said in a statement, adding that her union was prepared to work with PIPSC to ensure a new system could be administered smoothly.“If Phoenix has taught us anything, we know that any system will require thorough consultations and testing,” said Benson.A spokeswoman for the minister responsible for the pay system also appeared to leave the door open to a new approach, saying the government was prepared to work with the unions towards “finding a permanent solution” to the pay problems.The department “continues to work with all partners including union leadership to find innovative and efficient solutions to the pay issues,” Public Services Minister Carla Qualtrough’s press secretary Ashley Michnowski said in an emailed statement.Michnowski added that the government was awaiting the findings of an auditor general’s report on the Phoenix debacle, which is to be made public next week.Over the weekend, Qualtrough said she could not guarantee the ultimate cost of fixing the problems wouldn’t reach $1 billion.When asked whether the cost to fix the public service pay system could reach that amount, the minister told CTV’s Question Period “I hope not,” but offered no assurances about the ultimate price tag.Shortly after Phoenix went online, thousands of civil servants began reporting that they had been underpaid, overpaid or not paid at all — and in many cases, the problems extended over months.The automated system, designed to streamline government’s antiquated pay system, was supposed to save Ottawa about $70 million a year.Instead, the government has earmarked hundreds of millions of dollars to fix it, even as a backlog of problem cases grows larger.During the summer, the Treasury Board of Canada issued a notice that it was planning to contract Oracle Canada — the company that produced the software at the core of the Phoenix system — to assess the system in hopes of stabilizing it.The $2 million sole-source contract was for a period of six months, ending March 31, 2018.The Senate has already set out to find a replacement system to pay its own employees.But Daviau said she expected any private-sector solution the Senate comes up with either won’t work or can’t be expanded to handle the often complicated pay files of more than 300,000 civil servants spread over dozens of departments and agencies.— Follow @tpedwell on Twitterlast_img read more

Great white shark cruising East Coast becomes Twitter star helping draw attention

BOSTON – They’re gonna need a bigger Twitter.An organization studying great white sharks is enjoying some welcome attention after one of the creatures they’ve been monitoring started gaining a loyal social media following. @MaryLeeShark is the fake Twitter handle for a very real, nearly 3,500-pound great white whose movements can be tracked online and in real time.She’s drawn over 44,000 followers with her playful updates and witty replies as real life shark cruises up and down the East Coast.“Oh heyyyyy…. you’re right by my house, come by for a nightcap?” invited one recent Twitter commenter as she popped up off the coast of Long Island, New York.“I would settle for an ice bag to put on my aching Twitter fin. -:()” Mary Lee replied.“What do you do during Shark Week?” another recent commenter asked. “Swim. Eat. Tweet. Etc. Exhausting. -;(),” Mary Lee responded.The shark, which was tagged off the coast of Cape Cod, is among hundreds of sharks that OCEARCH, a Utah-based organization, has tagged and tracked since 2007.The fake Twitter handle isn’t affiliated with OCEARCH (pronounced Oh-Search). But OCEARCH expedition leader Chris Fischer, who named Mary Lee after his mother, says the organization appreciates the attention the maritime missives have generated.“They’re really clever, they really like sharks and they’re on mission, so we’re just kind of rolling with it,” he said from the organization’s latest expedition in Australia.OCEARCH has even jumped on the bandwagon, launching “official” Twitter handles for two other sharks it’s monitoring off the East Coast. @Shark_Katharine and @RockStarLydia both have sizable followings of their own.The person behind the @MaryLeeShark account did surface when The Associated Press sent a Twitter message.The account’s operator identified themselves only as a daily newspaper reporter living on the East Coast and expressed pleasant surprise at the attention — and OCEARCH’s support.“The recent explosion of followers has been a lot of fun, but also like a second job. I do everything manually – no robo tweets,” the account owner wrote. “The best part is that (@MaryLeeShark) plays a role in helping to replace fear with facts by retweeting and commenting on @OCEARCH tweets. I (try) to be respectful of the important work OCEARCH does and have fun at the same time.”OCEARCH’s multi-year project uses GPS trackers affixed to the shark’s dorsal fin to post real time data on dozens of great whites across the globe — Mary Lee was hanging out near Ocean City, Maryland on Sunday, for example — with the goal of better understanding the shark’s life cycle and encouraging conservation of the endangered ocean predators.Shark researchers say the work is important because there’s still a lot unknown about the behaviour of mature white sharks. The massive beasts are extremely difficult to tag with modern GPS trackers that would help closely track their movements.OCEARCH is one of the few outfits with the technology, skill and resources for the job. The organization operates largely on corporate funding and its crew consists of professional fisherman-turned-ocean explorers.“This gives us a much better understanding of the movement patterns of these animals through days, months and years,” says Robert Hueter, director of the Center for Shark Research at Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium in Sarasota, Florida.Gregory Skomal, a marine biologist who heads the Massachusetts Shark Research Program, says the research is of particular interest along the densely populated East Coast, where great whites are being spotted with greater frequency.The sharks are increasingly drawn to places like Cape Cod and its surrounding islands, whose seaside communities are forever linked with “Jaws,” because seal populations have soared.“Basically the cafe is open and the customers are arriving,” Skomal said. “Ten or fifteen years ago, you might have had three to four sightings of white sharks off the coast of Massachusetts a year. Now we’re getting well over 30 or 40.”The researchers are reluctant to draw quick conclusions about great white behaviour based on the few East Coast great whites OCEARCH is tracking.Some, like Mary Lee, have hued relatively close to the shore, to the delight and alarm of Twitter followers. Others have ventured far into the Atlantic.Shark fans say they’ve found the tongue-in-cheek tweets fun and informative. Many hope the attention helps overcome fears and misconceptions about the powerful but endangered creatures.“People need to think about them not so much as a predator and something to be feared, but more as something that needs to be protected,” said Teri Drake-Floyd, an Athens, Georgia resident who recently started following @MaryLeeShark. “The ocean is their home, not ours, and so it’s kind of our responsibility to look out for them.” Great white shark cruising East Coast becomes Twitter star, helping draw attention to research FILE – In this Sept. 13, 2012 file photo, Captain Brett McBride places his hand on the snout of the crew’s first specimen while scientists collect blood, tissue samples and attach tracking devices on the research vessel Ocearch off the coast of Chatham, Mass. Before release, the nearly 15-foot, 2,292-pound shark was named Genie for famed shark researcher Eugenie Clark. The Ocearch team baits the fish and leads them onto a lift, tagging and taking blood, tissue and semen samples up close from the world’s most feared predator. The real-time satellite tag tracks the shark each time its dorsal fin breaks the surface, plotting its location on a map.

SRK on rehabilitation for closure and the value of knowing what can

first_imgDespite South Africa’s mine closure laws comparing well internationally, the country can boast very few examples of successfully implemented mine closure; instead, over 6,000 mines have been abandoned without adequate rehabilitation. According to Matthew Law, senior environmental management consultant and economist at SRK Consulting, this situation is unlikely to endure; soon, mine closure will be regulated under the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA) which will require that provision is made for ongoing rehabilitation, closure and the management of residual environmental impacts.“Too often, both mine owners and regulators overlook the importance of scientifically derived, realistic closure targets – with owners making over-ambitious, impracticable commitments which cannot be implemented, or are ignored during the life-of-mine,” he said. He noted that the new regulations will also impose strict penalties for defaulters, including possible imprisonment – while stakeholders become increasingly vocal about inadequate closure. “In the past, failure to comply posed a limited risk,” said Law. “However, the risk profile is changing, and mines will soon need to have their financial provision for closure independently audited and subjected to stakeholder engagement.”It is therefore becoming vital for mining operations to understand accurately what can be achieved with regard to rehabilitation, and the residual environmental impacts that are anticipated. Mines must also carefully define the measures that must be undertaken annually – and at closure – to achieve the closure vision, the cost to implement these measures, and the metrics against which to assess rehabilitation performance, so that reporting and adaptive management can be better facilitated.Citing an example where SRK Consulting was recently appointed to assess the success of rehabilitation performance at a large opencast mine on the west coast of South Africa, Law said the owners wanted to establish the level of rehabilitation that could be achieved in the long-term using their current rehabilitation methods.“The owners required a robust system to monitor and measure ongoing rehabilitation performance at the mine, without the need for specialist supervision,” he said. “Previous owners of the mine had committed to returning the site to baseline agricultural or ‘grazing’ potential, an end-use believed by the owners and regulator to be achievable, despite the intensive rehabilitation failing to deliver this goal.”SRK sub-contracted a restoration ecologist to sample proximate sites and provide a pre-mining reference baseline. A customised grazing index for the region – a composite of topsoil cover, seedbanks and plant species composition – was developed to quantify agricultural potential and value; and the grazing value of sample or baseline sites was calculated using the index.“The results provided the mine with the first quantitative measure of baseline grazing value, a metric against which the success of rehabilitation could be assessed,” said Law. “This represented a significant step forward in closure planning at the mine.”Subsequently, rehabilitation performance at the mine was assessed by sampling, using the method developed for mine’s local ecological conditions during baseline sampling, and grazing values were calculated using the customised grazing index.“This assessment revealed that, although significant vegetation cover had been achieved – in other words, there was sufficient biomass which ‘looked good’ – progress in returning the site to agricultural potential has been slow,” he said. “This indicated that, at the historical trajectory of rehabilitation, residual liabilities would be high and closure would not be achieved; or that, additional or alternative interventions were required during the remaining life-of-mine.”Using baseline grazing value as a metric proved to be an innovative performance monitoring and measurement system and has helped the mine owner pilot new and enhanced rehabilitation techniques, accurately assess and report on rehabilitation, facilitate adaptive management of rehabilitated areas, and update annual and final financial provisions to accurately reflect rehabilitation costs.“This significantly reduces the risks to the owner at closure, in the face of more stringent closure regulations, strict penalties for non-compliance and increased private and public oversight in the sector,” said Law.last_img read more

The right tone Performing the national anthems at Ireland and Englands historic

Click here for more of The42′s Ireland v England anniversary series >PLAYING NATIONAL ANTHEMS before sports events was nothing new for the Army No. 1 Band coming into the 2007 Six Nations campaign.Over the years, they learned to become proficient at performing them in the old arena at Lansdowne Road.It was a familiar space, where the band members would often slip into the seats to watch the game after finishing their performance.But during the reconstruction phases preceding the birth of the Aviva Stadium, the band was redirected to a new setting for their anthem-playing duties — Croke Park.This wasn’t entirely uncharted territory for the group. They had previously deputised for the Artane Band at the stadium in the past.But covering this particular set of Six Nations gigs was about more than just carrying out the anthems in a different stadium. Source: docathail/YouTubeFollowing the amendment of Rule 42, the people of Ireland were conflicted, and finding it difficult to unanimously support the concept of hosting rugby and football games at GAA headquarters.With England lined up to be one of the teams coming to Ireland that year, there were concerns over how a rendition of God Save The Queen would be received.There was still a lingering resonance with the events of Bloody Sunday in 1920, and some pockets of society felt the doors of Croke Park were being prematurely reopened to the British.Mark Armstrong, who was the Army No.1 Band conductor at that time, could appreciate the tension surrounding the fixture.“With a sporting event like Ireland v England, and their old rivalry — a healthy rivalry of course — there was a lot of good sensibilities surrounding it, which maybe people were slightly anxious about, with the anthem being played there,” he told The42. Brian O’Driscoll and John Hayes stand for the national anthems. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHO“Obviously, we played the British anthem before in Lansdowne Road, but it was the location of Croke Park that was the significant part of it.”Of course, this wasn’t the first Six Nations game to be hosted at the grounds in 2007. Ireland had a home tie with France ahead of the England clash, but Armstrong never gets inquiries about his memories of that fixture.The lack of a deeply-rooted tension between Ireland and France must have dampened the intrigue.But the France game allowed Armstrong, and the rest of the band, to acclimatise to an atmosphere which didn’t manifest in the more compact surroundings of Lansdowne Road.Looking back, because the capacity is around 80,000, the sheer volume of support and the sound was something that we’d never been used to, so it was exceptional from that point of view.“There was huge interest and I suppose the novelty value of rugby being played in Croke Park. There was a different atmosphere altogether, people were so used to the old Lansdowne Road.”The England match took place on 24 February, but neither Armstrong, nor the band members, were worried about any dangerous scenarios occurring in the stadium.The subject of the game and the historical context of it all inevitably came up in conversation, but their focus was solely on the music.We’re there to do a job. It’s a job that we were so used to doing because we play at an awful lot of international sports events. I think there was a heightened awareness of the occasion itself and a great anticipation.“They (the band members) enjoy those occasions as well. There was an awful lot of talk about it between ourselves in the run up to it.”The disapproving minority were present on the day, although they refrained from committing any malicious acts. Protesters standing outside Croke Park. Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHOThe band spotted a few protesters outside the stadium, but the images of those dissenters have all but left Armstrong’s memory of the day.“That’s kind of all been forgotten about because the event was so great. Everybody had so much respect in the stadium.“There was a huge spirit and such good behaviour as well. That particular crowd understood how important it was that everybody respected each other’s traditions. And of course, they went on to have a great rugby match.”The Army band was tasked with performing Amhrán na bhFiann and Ireland’s Call, while the Garda Band was entrusted with delivering God Save The Queen. Standing behind the procession of players on the pitch minutes before kick-off, Armstrong got a full flavour of what was unfolding.He explains how the symbolic nature of the occasion added another layer of responsibility to their assignment.“You’re very aware because you’ve just had the President (Mary McAleese) over to review the two teams lined up. We’re actually behind that, so you know what’s going and we’re all keenly aware of the players too.You’re the musical support for 80,000 people singing the national anthem so it’s a great responsibility and a great honour as well. I felt very proud. It’s a combination of emotions that you really can’t describe.”He added: “I was very interested to see how loudly they would sing because it was a completely different situation. I couldn’t believe the noise that came out of the crowd when they sang God Save The Queen, which would have been the first anthem.“It struck me that everyone in the stadium seemed to be singing along, which of course probably wasn’t true. But somebody said to me afterwards that there was a YouTube video taken up in the stands and there were Irish people signing along as well, so maybe I’m not that far off the mark.”The national anthem has always evoked a powerful emotion in Armstrong. From his early days of conducting the band, he felt a profound response to the songs that represent our national identity and heritage.I remember the very first time I walked as a young band conductor onto Lansdowne Road. The first thing that hit me was the colour of the grass, it’s so green.“And then of course, you’re playing the national anthem, you’re in the middle of the pitch, and you’re hearing all of this sound coming in around you.”Over time, he developed an understanding of how to pace the song so that spectators can enjoy the experience in full voice. And he applies that method every time he conducts the band, regardless of the name above the stadium.“I discovered there was a certain tempo to play the national anthem at, which allowed the crowd to keep up. There’s a pause at the very end of the national anthem, and if you keep going too fast, you lose everybody.“I remember the first time I did it and I was hugely proud to be there. My father was alive at the time and he was a great rugby fan so he was delighted to see me doing that.”Subscribe to The42 Rugby Show podcast here: Share81 Tweet Email Short URL Image: Dan Sheridan/INPHO 20 Comments iTunes The right tone: Performing the national anthems at Ireland and England’s historic 2007 match Many people in Ireland worried about how the Croke Park crowd would react to ‘God Save The Queen.’ 19,460 Views Tuesday 21 Feb 2017, 9:30 PM Feb 21st 2017, 9:30 PM last_img read more

US lauds Bangladesh role over Rohingya crisis

first_img-The United States has appreciated Bangladesh’s generosity in responding to the humanitarian crisis of Rohingya refugees.According to the United Nations, nearly 300,000 have fled from persecution in Myanmar’s Rakhine state into Bangladesh since 25 August.“We applaud the government of Bangladesh’s generosity in responding to this humanitarian crisis and appreciate their continued efforts to ensure assistance reaches the affected population,” read a press statement released by US Department of State on Saturday.Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in the statement, “Since October 2016, the US government has provided nearly $63 million in humanitarian assistance for vulnerable communities displaced in and from Burma throughout the region.”In the press statement, she also said the US is concerned by the United Nations announcement on 8 September that an estimated 270,000 Rohingya (now around 300,000) arrived in Bangladesh since 25 August following allegations of serious human rights abuses in Burma’s Rakhine State, including violent attacks and mass burnings of villages.”We continue to coordinate closely with our partners, including the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Organisation for Migration to provide emergency assistance to these individuals,” the statement added.last_img read more

The strangest Skyrim mod yet rolling goat cheese

first_imgSo you’ve been playing Skyrim for over a month now. You’ve hacked your way through legions of trolls, ice wraiths, and skeevers — and now you’re ready for something new. Maybe you’ve even tried some of the most bizarre mods, including nude patches, Spiderman’s suit, and the chest hair generator. Well, we have the Skyrim mod to top them all: feast your eyes on 2,500 rolling wheels of Skyrim goat cheese.As you can see above, that isn’t an exaggeration; we’re looking at an avalanche of dairy. Why exactly would you want to infect your adventure with that much goat cheese? Why not? We could speculate about motives for the mod, like all of the cheddar the game is making, the cheesiness of it all, or the lactose intolerance of ice trolls; that, however, would be trying to make sense of the nonsensical. This is head-scratch-inducing madness at its finest. Sheogorath would approve.Despite (sometimes) major glitches on the Xbox and PS3 versions, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been the biggest game of 2011, garnering various Game of the Year honors (including at Spike TV’s Video Game Award). The sequel to Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has also handily outsold everything that isn’t named Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.Unfortunately, one thing we can’t give you is the code to apply the mod yourself. Like a rainbow or the aurora borealis, rolling goat cheese is something that can’t be bottled; it must be appreciated from a distance. Respect the cheese.This leaves us with the question of what mods we will see next? Once you’ve opened the rolling goat cheese door, you’ve crossed a threshold from which you can never return. Welcome to a new world.via Destructoidlast_img read more

British Airways brings fashion royalty to Milan Italy

first_imgBritish Airways brings fashion royalty to Milan, ItalyBritish Airways brings fashion royalty to Milan, ItalyBritish Airways celebrates its love of Milan by taking British supermodels Suki Waterhouse and David Gandy out onto the city’s fashionable streets for two very special photoshoots – followed by an exclusive fashion show and very British afternoon tea experience.Suki kicked off a day of activities to celebrate travel and style by posing in an incredible paper dress inspired by the airlines heritage colours. It was created by acclaimed British fashion designer and artist Zoe Bradley and took over 100 hours to assemble, the stunning head piece features real tickets passengers usually receive at the airport. The dress travelled 965 miles from Cardiff, UK to Milan, Italy.Twenty-five year old Suki unveiled the hand-crafted masterpiece in front of the famous Cathedral in Duomo Square, flanked by British Airways pilots and crew. Speaking of the incredible creation, Suki said: “I was so excited when British Airways asked me to get involved, Zoe Bradley is renowned for her paper dresses! I love the fact that the colours and the shape subtly represent the airline. It’s great to have it customised to me, and I think people are absolutely blown away by it. I was just praying it wouldn’t rain!”Celebrated artist Zoe Bradley – who has worked with the likes of Christian Louboutin, Harrods and Alexander McQueen in the past – created the design with her team at her studio back in the UK. She said: “I wanted to create a design which captured the line of the iconic British Airways logo and really communicated air travel and the link between Britain, British Airways and fashion. Suki is the perfect English rose to model the piece.“I love to take on a challenge and when British Airways first approached me with the idea of creating a dramatic dress in paper to be worn by a model, it was a chance to create something truly eye catching.”At lunchtime, it was the turn of fashion royalty David Gandy to turn heads once more in the Italian fashion capital as British Airways sent him out for a spin in a vintage Jaguar E-Type with a British Airways pilot in tow. The 36-year-old, wearing a beautiful suit took to the streets to visit popular tourist landmarks including Arco della Pace where he stopped to pose for photographs with British Airways pilots and crew.Speaking beside the Jaguar, David commented that Milan and London have a lot in common. “Both cities are absolutely revered throughout the fashion world – and rightly so,” he said. “The two cities are where models and designers alike want to be and for that reason hold a very special bond”.“They both offer incredible places to shop – but on top of that you have the wonderful food, the culture and the people. London and Milan are very special to me and today I had a great time exploring the city by road. It was nice to take a moment and soak it up all up – usually I’m in the back of a car zooming from one shoot to the next. I really enjoyed taking the driving seat.”British Airways teamed up with The Berkeley Hotel, London, to give VIP guests a taste of the Berkeley’s legendary Prêt-à-Portea afternoon tea inspired by the themes and colours of the fashion world. They also enjoyed an exclusive fashion show of British Airways cabin crew outfits through the ages.Noella Ferns, British Airways’ regional general manager, Greater China and the Philippines, said: “London and Milan are both at the very forefront of the fashion industry and we encourage travellers to explore the best that both of these vibrant and exciting cities have to offer. Zoe Bradley’s wonderful British Airways paper dress is the perfect piece to celebrate the fashion capitals – especially as our staff pride themselves on their impeccable – and very fashionable – outfits. We’re certainly very impressed by her interpretation.”British Airways recently announced that it will start flying to Milan from London City Airport on 24 April and from Stansted Airport on 29 April, making it easier than ever before for travellers to experience London and Milan in one trip.

Williams is only seven yards away from his career

first_imgWilliams is only seven yards away from his career high in rushing yards for a season and with two more rushing touchdown he will set a new career high in that category as well.He is 216 yards shy of eclipsing 1,000 yards for his career. With games left against the Redskins and the Giants, who both rank in the bottom 10 rush defense, Williams has a reasonable shot to get to that number.Inner competitivnessWilliams was asked many questions about his confidance level and the overall team in general.“My confidence in myself is supreme,” said Williams. “Once you lose that confidence in yourself you stop being the same player you are.”Part of finding that confidence and competitiveness stems from talking trash.“I like to get my trash talk in when I can,” Williams said. “I feel like that’s your inner competitiveness coming out. I really think the trash talk gets me into the game, it gets me more focused and more in tune with whats going on.”“I was getting into it with (Titans saftey Johnathan) Cyprien (Sunday), he’s definitely the biggest trash talker on their defense,” Williams said. – / 20 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Your browser does not support the audio element. (AP Photo/Ron Schwane) “They are doing OK, not quite barbecued,” Williams joked with Doug & Wolf Monday morning on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.Despite the pain, Williams knows where he needs to draw the line as to whether or not he can compete.“I don’t do shots or pills, I’m not really into that. I feel like it hides what’s really going on and you are really making things worse. I feel like if you have to do that then you shouldn’t really be playing,” Williams said.“I go through all that to get the last result on Sunday. So when I get that, that makes it all worth it,” said the running back.Backfield carouselThe Cardinals’ offense has gone through three starting quarterbacks and now four starting running backs in the 2017 season.With injuries to running backs David Johnson and Adrian Peterson, and after the release of backups Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington, Williams was moved to the starting spot in week 13 against the Rams and has averaged 4.72 yards per carry on 18 rush attempts per game.Even though he didn’t find the end zone in either game, the five-year veteran has stabilized the Cardinals’ backfield for the time being. 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelocenter_img LISTEN: Kerwynn Williams, Arizona Cardinals Running Back Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Playing for an offense that could not find the end zone on Sunday, Kerwynn Williams provided a bright spot in the Cardinals’ backfield and helped propel the team to its sixth win of the season, beating the Titans 12-7.Williams racked up 73 yards rushing on 20 carries to lead a determined charge by the Cardinals to protect their home turf, moving them to 4-3 at University of Phoenix Stadium this season.Taking on a heavier workload means taking more hits and he has been doing it despite playing through two cracked ribs.
