Fox Sports eyeing ESPN soccer analyst Jon Vilma

You ask, we answer. The Post raises questions from readers about the largest pro sports team in New York and asks our writers & columnists to answer them in a series of regularly published letter bags. In today’s installment: sports media.

It looks like Round Barber is out on Fox (the contract isn’t renewed) so Kenny Albert will get a new partner this fall. Who gets the nod to work with these pros? – @ msilvers1979

Let’s convey a little news about Mailbag. After signing Adam Amin and Emmanuel Acho from ESPN, Fox Sports really liked Jon Vilma as a game analyst, according to sources.

That said, ESPN wants to look after Vilma, where she has become a college football studio analyst at the ABC’s top event. Vilma has strong faith as the Super Bowl champion with the Saints and with the great 2001 NCAA champion, Miami Hurricanes. His reputation was injured at Bountygate – though, he finally managed to fight for it.

Vilma may live on ESPN, but he has appeared as an option on Fox. He may not end up working with Albert, but he is likely to network.

Who is the top candidate to replace Charles Davis on Fox? That will probably be Greg Olsen after he finishes playing right? But in the short term who is that? – @ NickPalazzolo5

If Fox signs Vilma, he won’t be number two. With Olsen, a long-term game as a second analyst, Fox is likely to approach waiting and seeing this season.

Let’s say the NFL plays a role, but college doesn’t or only a few conferences come forward in the fall. Fox can see Joel Klatt or Brock Huard as NFL additions to this season.

If college is full, then Fox can go with someone like Daryl Johnston or Chris Spielman in No. 2 for this year.

Even with a pandemic that hurt their profits, do you see ABC might get an NFL game Sunday afternoon? – @ sc5145

I’m not sure about “getting.” I think “trying to get” will play a role when the NFL negotiates the next TV contract. Disney wants ABC to return to playing football.

Could it be “Monday Night Football”? Yes Is it possible with the Sunday package, even chasing CBS ‘? I think that’s possible. Can the NFL make another set of games to get everyone involved? I think you can see it. So there’s no guarantee, but I think Disney / ABC / ESPN will run seriously for more NFL games.

What happened to the SEC / ESPN contract? Is it more likely or less likely (ESPN) to be able to buy the rest of the CBS year now? – Steve Drouin

There was a lot of industry rumors about this possibility after ESPN took the main SEC deal from CBS, but that was still in four more seasons. Although maybe Disney / ESPN tried to buy CBS / Viacom earlier, it seems a bit doubtful at the moment.

First, I heard pushback that CBS wanted to do it before the pandemic. Now, with Disney heavily affected by the virus, is it going to spend $ 200 million- $ 300 million in the near future to try to bring the SEC faster? Again, this is not impossible, but I don’t see it now.

Why isn’t there a sports talk station that has an hour-long program devoted to hockey? They can enter on Sunday mornings or late at night. There are three freakin hockey teams in the New York area. I knew I would listen. Split up. – @ ericdavidlevy

This type of programming is almost always ignored by radio, but now podcasts are a better forum for the niche. If you want to browse the subject, then the podcast really allows you to choose the genre you want. For hockey, we have one called “In the Blue Chair.” Try it.

Portuguese government to allocate 30 million euros to help Ukrainian refugees in Poland – Cidade Hoje

The City Council of Santo Tirso today returned to Desportivo das Aves the Portuguese Football Cup trophy won in the 2017/2018 season, which the municipality bought at an auction two months ago for 30,000 euros.

“This was an injustice that our own justice wanted to bring up for discussion, but it needs to be reconsidered. It is disgusting that there are legal aspects that prevent the title from passing into the hands of others when it has been very well won on the field. The city council did only what it was responsible for, which is to keep the heritage of the population, the club and the land in the right place, ”Mayor Alberto Costa repeated to reporters.

The handover of the scepter took place on the full lawn of the CD Aves stadium, in Vila das Aves, between the winning reception of Desportivo das Aves 1930 in favor of Rio de Moinhos (3-1), in the 13th round of the 4th Series of the Football Association Division of Honor Porto.

Conquered on 20 May 2018 by beating Sporting CP in the final of the Queen’s competition (2-1) at the Estadio Nacional in Oeiras, the trophy was laid in the context of northern South Africa’s insolvency, having been put up for public auction from August to October.

A “double” by Alexandre Guedes against a goal from Colombian Fredy Montero “sealed” the unprecedented success of “Avences”, then managed by José Mota, just five days after the invasion of the Accademia de Alcochete, where supporters attacked several “Leonin players”.

“The City Council of Santo Tirso did this out of respect for those who were on the field, after a week when it seemed that Desportivo das Aves did not exist. I returned to what I did in good conscience as mayor. We took care of the formal aspects so that what happened would not happen again, ”admitted Alberto Costa.

The ceremony was attended by the footballers, technicians and other staff involved in winning the Portuguese Cup, whose scepter was carried by the then goalkeeper and “captain” Kim and striker Alexandre Guedes on the pitch to be symbolically handed over by the mayor to the newly appointed sworn-in president of the Vila das Aves club, Pedro Pereira.

“Feeling is what you felt in the stadium. There was gratitude for the most important achievement in our history, which also marked the beginning of the renaissance that we are striving for, in order for the club to return to the heights that it has reached in the past. The Portuguese Cup is well placed. The legal departments have tried to ensure that this is not going anywhere,” said successor António Freitas.

The auction was held by the Judicial Court of Comarca Porto and ended exactly two months ago, setting a minimum threshold of 1360 euros, set at an initial price of 800 euros and a base price of 1600 euros. trophy.

The greatest achievement of Desportivo das Aves was arrested by the SAD in July 2020 when the Chinese-led administration Wei Zhao failed to fulfill the licensing requirements in the professional competition of the 2020/21 season with the Clubs League and rejected an appeal to the Council of the Referee of the Portuguese Football Federation.

The Nordics had already been relegated to the II League, but “fell” by administrative means in the Campeonato de Portugal, then in the third national level due to wage arrears and unilateral layoffs of players, technical staff and employees.

SAD, which also witnessed the confiscation of two Desportivo das Aves buses, decided to withdraw from the Portuguese Championship in September 2020, five months before the Santo Tirso District Judicial Court declared it insolvent.

Almost €37,500 debts from SAD to three foreign clubs resulted in FIFA preventing the club from signing new players since August 2020, but two months later, António Freitas’ management decided to recreate the futsal and football sections that began to represent the new club. called Desportivo das Aves 1930.

Portugal beat Switzerland with Gonçalo Ramos hat-trick to play Morocco in World Cup quarter-finals - Observer

Absence of Ronaldo, favorite song and game with Morocco. Gonzalo Ramos sums up a (beautiful) night he never dreamed of

Goncalo Ramos’ debut as a starter at the World Cup saw him score three goals and have a great night. Although there was talk before the game about the absence of CR7 in the starting lineup, the Benfica player said that it was different in the dressing room: “Honestly, in our dressing room, no one talked about it. Cristiano as our captain did what he does in every game. He helped us, motivated us and gave me a word of encouragement both for himself and for everyone else.”

After explaining at a press conference that he only had time to call his parents and best friends, Gonçalo Ramos turned to the next game, in which Portugal would “come out with everything”. “The game against Morocco will start 0-0. Today’s score doesn’t matter anymore.”

When asked about today’s performance, the Benfica player said that even in his wildest dreams he never thought of making his debut in the starting lineup in the World Cup playoffs with a hat-trick. “In relation to exemplary players, Ronaldo is an idol for many. I also like Lewandowski and Ibrahimovic.”

In a more relaxed moment, journalists asked Ramos what his favorite song is and what song he would like to hear when he scores goals. “This song contains profanity. Maybe it’s better not to mention it. Another? The music when we score is good. This can continue.”

After the press conference, Gonzalo Ramos went to receive the Man of the Match trophy. Upon receiving the award, he was asked which of his teammates he would give it to if he could choose: “I would give it to the whole team, because without the whole team it’s impossible to win games.”
