missing a couple more wee

Although Thursday was already scheduled to be a major voting day in at least one of Canadas largest provinces, it now marks a major decision day across the country in the Canadian Football League. Chris Conner Jersey . The Players Association will either decide to ratify last Saturdays tentative collective bargaining agreement or not, and face uncertain labour future in the days and weeks ahead. Polls for the players opened at 6am et. The votes will be taken using electronic secret ballot, on a third-party website, with a passcode for each player. According to sources, the question on the ballot: Are you in favour of approval of the Collective Agreement that has been described in the Summary of Collective Agreement Proposed for the years 2014-2018: YES (in favour of) / NO. In order to ratify the tentative deal, players on six of the leagues nine team must vote "Yes." On each team, the vote must be 50 per cent-plus-one to pass. In the last few days, some CFLPA executives have travelled to CFL cities to answer questions on what is part of the tentative five-year deal - including a $5 million base salary cap, a $27 million threshold to renegotiate the salary cap, ratification bonus for players, and the removal of the option year in veteran contracts. Union vice-president Jeff Keeping, also an offensive lineman with the Toronto Argonauts, confirmed Thursday rookies are entitled to a vote in every province where a CFL team is located, except Quebec. According to Keeping, Quebec labour law states an individual must be part of a union to vote on tentative collective bargaing agreements. CFL rookies arent part of the Players Association until after training camp, when they make the team, sign a certified player contract and begin paying dues. Voting is set to last until 8pm et/5pm pt. The Players Association is then expected to hold a conference call Thursday evening when they should know the votes results. Michael Raffl Jersey .C. -- North Carolina State coach Mark Gottfried said his team had a "golden" opportunity to help its NCAA tournament chances. Claude Giroux Jersey . For the Miami Heat, that was outstanding news. LeBron James scored the last of his 32 points on a layup that put Miami up for good with 11. http://www.flyershockeypro.com/authentic-scott-laughton-flyers-jersey/ .Y. - Matt Harvey wants to make sure hes on the mound in late October — if the New York Mets get there for the first time since 2006.GREEN BAY, Wis. - Randall Cobb keeps finding the end zone for the Green Bay Packers. Soon enough, it could lead to a big payday.The fourth-year receiver is in the last season of his rookie contract after being drafted in 2011. He loves Green Bay and shows no letup in proving he can be a playmaker catching passes from Aaron Rodgers.Cobb, who has nine touchdowns in eight games to lead NFL receivers, said he doesnt think about his contract status. The Packers dont seem too worried, either.I guess well have to wait and see, Cobb said Thursday when asked whether he was setting himself up nicely for a future deal.A few lockers away, fellow receiver Jordy Nelson let out a hearty laugh.Nelson signed a $39 million, four-year extension on the first day of training camp in July. He has been worth every penny so far, with 50 catches for 737 yards and six touchdowns as Rodgers top target in Green Bays up-tempo attack.Cobb has been nearly as productive with 40 catches and 578 yards. Always a threat in space, Cobb has also developed a knack for making plays in tight quarters in the red zone.Rodgers said its all about finding the right matchups.Jordy and Randall have had a lot of targets go their way. Theyve been open a lot, Rodgers said. Weve kind of manipulated some formations to try to get them in the ... first or second spot as far as the progression goes.Cobb was especially hard on himself after Green Bays 19-7 loss on Sept. 21 at Detroit, which dropped the Packers to 1-2. He was held without a score on three catches for 29 yards.He has been a regular in the end zone ever since, with six touchdowns in the last five games. He has 26 catches for 452 yards during that five-game stretch.He brings that blue-collar, workmanlike attitude when he goes out on the practice field and tries to make the most out of each and every opportunity, receivers coach Edgar Bennett said. Steve Mason Flyers Jersey. . The thing I really love about him also is the fact that good is not enough. He wants to be great, and he works at it.Especially against Sundays opponent, the Chicago Bears. In his last three games against Green Bays division rival, Cobb has 15 catches for 283 yards and four touchdowns.Cobb had seven grabs for 113 yards and two scores in a 38-17 win over the Bears in September. In the 2013 regular-season finale in Chicago, Cobb had two scoring receptions, including a memorable 48-yarder from Rodgers on fourth down with 38 seconds left to help Green Bay win 33-28 and take the NFC North title.I dont know if we play at a higher level, but we have been more efficient here as of late against the Bears, Cobb said.But otherwise, no extra motivation against them — or at least thats what Cobb is letting on.I mean, its another game for me, Cobb said. I just continue to try to play the best I can to help this team out any way I can.Keep up the production and the Packers figure to be rewarding Cobb handsomely.NOTES: Starting guards Josh Sitton (toe) and T.J. Lang (ankle) missed practice again, though coach Mike McCarthy said he would feel very comfortable playing both veterans without practice time. Lang said he had some ligament and muscle damage, which made the injury more than a typical sprained left ankle. Thats obviously something you have to think about, is weigh the options and not getting better for the rest of the season and be kind of that 60-70 per cent, whatever it is, or just waiting a couple of weeks and being 80-90 per cent, Lang said. Thatd be my biggest fear is having a setback and missing a couple more weeks.__AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Genaro Armas at http://twitter.com/GArmasAP Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
