It cost me $110 which took quite a bit of saving at 11 years oldThe first one bought for me was a David Robinson road jersey in 1996. I still have it although it’s a bit snug now. It did solidify my following of the Spurs which paid dividends over the next decade or so in a big way. Good topic. My first was a “Big Daddy” Dan Wilkenson Bengals jersey.

“I’m No Age Cheat” – Francis Uzoho Fires Back At Critics

first_imgSuper Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has hit back at criticisms over his goalkeeping abilities and insinuations that he falsified his age.The criticisms about his ability and age have been an albatross around Uzoho’s neck since his international bow in a friendly against Argentina in November 2017.Aged 19 at the time of his Super Eagles bow, many Nigerians struggled to reconcile Uzoho’s given age with his physical appearance.With age cheating a matter of fact in Nigerian football, Uzoho was subjected to widespread taunting for seemingly misrepresenting his age.His jittery performances between the sticks for the national team in the lead up to the 2018 FIFA World Cup gave his critics yet another stick to beat him with.His status as Nigeria’s number one at the Mundial was dismissed as unjustified and only possible because Eagles manager Gernot Rohr favoured him unduly – something that caused Uzoho’s stock to plummet even further with Nigerians.The former AC Omonia goalkeeper eventually dropped to the bench for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt over a lack of match time at Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna.The former Elche goalie who is edging his way to full fitness following knee surgery from an injury sustained in an international friendly against Brazil last October admitted to being affected by the criticisms early on in his career.Speaking in an Instagram interview with the Super Eagles media channel, the former U-17 star admitted that he struggled to deal with the more personal aspects of the criticisms but has learned to shrug them off and focus on more important things.“One cannot run away from critics these days with the way the internet is,” Uzoho said.“When I am criticised, I will consider what is written, if the person is right I will take their opinion, if the person is wrong and talking for talking sake, I will just pass.”Uzoho said he was so affected that he became “afraid” of social media but has now learned how to navigate the online world without incident.“When I first started playing for the Super Eagles, I was crazy. People do not know me, so when they imagine things in their head and express it verbally, it’s their right I don’t really do social media, don’t do many interviews so maybe that fuels it,” the 21-year-old said.“I say I should try and do more, but I am afraid of it. When they wrote things about me, I was a boy, 18 years I didn’t know how to handle it, but some people helped me and showed me this is how social media works.”While he has come to terms with being criticised for his shortcomings as a footballer, Uzoho said criticism that goes beyond his actions on the pitch is “not right”.“Fair enough if people criticise me for football if I make a mistake “you cannot keep”, “you no sabi ball”, that is fair enough, but going outside of football is not right, but then again, I don’t mind them anymore.”“I remember once I was at Elche, I was in a league match, we had lost 5-1, with the 4th goal I broke my ribs and was in pain, coming back from the hospital I was in pain, and I fired back on Instagram. I could not take it; it went to my head, and I responded.”RelatedNigeria’s next big thing, honing his skills at Estadio Municipal de RiazorOctober 18, 2017In “Nigeria”Why Nigerian Goalkeeper Francis Uzoho Lost His First Team Position At DeportivoNovember 7, 2017In “Nigeria”Uzoho Admits Okoye Fears, Dismisses Akpeyi, Ezenwa Challenge (AUDIO)August 8, 2020In “Featured”last_img read more

Tim Ebner – Supercell – Reflecting on the Clash Royale League

first_imgOn December 1st, the West’s first premier mobile esports tournament culminated in Tokyo, Japan. The Clash Royale League World Finals played host to six of the best teams from the inaugural season, pitting them against each other to see which team would come out on top.Esports Insider attended the World Finals, which was hosted at the Makuhari Messe, and had the chance to speak to Tim Ebner, Head of Esports at Supercell to get his thoughts on the very first season of the league and what fans can perhaps expect moving forward.Esports Insider: What have you done in the inaugural season of the Clash Royale League that you’d do differently in a second season?Tim Ebner: There’s always things we’re learning. I think it’s more of what’s worked really well. We’ve gotten better at promoting the game with rewards and incentivsed viewing, and we can do that better yet. More tightly integrating esports with the game itself – an example of this is the Clash Royale League Challenge which started with 25 million players entering with the possibility of becoming a professional player. The more we can integrate esports into the game, the better.ESI: What are you thoughts on franchising in esports, is it something we could see in the CRL?TE: Can I see it? Potentially yeah, but we don’t have any firm plans yet. We adopted a team format this year and we able to bring in a lot of organisations. They’ve been a valuable part of the league and supported the players.Having the team format is more interesting to watch, and bringing in the organisations is great. The players enjoy having a tight group they can work and practice with. I think all of that’s good. The organisations help promote and have fans across a number of games.There’s a lot of value in having teams involved, but the right and best structure for the team format takes time to figure out.“Many organisations know the game and want to be involved.”ESI: Would you consider it a risk including the Western region into the league considering mobile esports isn’t as big here as it is in the East?TE: I’ve never thought of it as a risk, more so as an opportunity. The game is global, it has players everywhere and we want to support all of them with esports. We don’t think about it as mobile esports being more difficult in the West, it’s more about bringing esports to a more casual player base.To the extent that mobile esports is big in the East, it’s more ‘hardcore’ games – they’re more similar to PC games despite being mobile titles. I think that challenge is equal to West and East: how do you bring esports to a casual audience?ESI: Do you see it as detrimental that you broadcast solely on YouTube, opting to not use the likes of Twitch?TE: I’d rather emphasise the strengths of YouTube. The reason we’ve done this is we’ve had, for years, a strong amount of influencers and content creators on YouTube – going back to Clash of Clans. We’ve had a big audience on YouTube for a long time so it’s about leaning into that with esports.“Maybe we’re the entry point to esports for some”ESI: Was it easy getting the likes of Cloud9 and Team Liquid to get involved in the CRL, providing salaries and so on?TE: I don’t think it’s about it being hard or easy, but what did help was that many organisations know the game and want to be involved. All of them are looking to grow their business and know mobile is the biggest gaming platform there is so there has definitely been strong interest and support.ESI: Do you see mobile esports as a threat to PC and console esports?TE: Our challenge and opportunity has always been having this huge player base and finding out what extent we can get them into esports. A lot of them are not esports fans, so to the extent that we’re successful I think that just helps to grow esports overall. Maybe we’re the entry point to esports for some and fans develop an interest in traditional platforms.Subscribe to ESI on YouTubelast_img read more

Three ‘official’ reasons why Siya Kolisi isn’t Springbok skipper again (yet)

first_imgSiya Kolisi will make a long-awaited return to the Springbok team when he runs out of the Loftus tunnel against Argentina on Saturday.However, the versatile 27-year-old flanker won’t be doing so as skipper.Instead, national coach Rassie Erasmus had decided to install veteran hooker Schalk Brits as designated on-field leader.ALSO READ: Swys needs to ‘forget’ about rugby for the next three monthsNot that it means Kolisi won’t be back in the thick of things at next month’s World Cup in Japan.“Siya will definitely be the regular captain at the tournament,” Erasmus said on Wednesday.Here are the three official reasons why that arrangement isn’t immediate.First and foremost, Kolisi needs match fitnessDespite his undeniable leadership qualities, Kolisi remains one of South Africa’s best loose forwards.He was one of the Boks’ most consistent performers in Allister Coetzee’s turbulent tenure, particularly in 2017 and reserved some of his best showings last season for the biggest opposition.Kolisi’s magnificent showing against the All Blacks at Loftus was a prominent example.“We’re phasing Siya back into the mix,” said Erasmus.“He’s definitely not going to be playing 80 minutes after just playing over 40 in the past 12 weeks. As everyone knows, we’re desperate to take him to the World Cup firstly and then also have him in-form. I want him to concentrate on his game, to get it up to scratch. We might even take him off before half-time if we get out the game what we set out.“It just won’t make sense to have him as captain then.”It allows the Boks to further strengthen their leadership groupExperience and leadership win teams showpiece tournament and Erasmus is acutely aware of that.More importantly, it’s important to differentiate between being a captain and being a senior player.Senior players contribute subtly to the cause, be it with quick bits of advice or simply taking ownership of a specific area – like the scrums, for example.Yet a captain still remains the main figure on the field – he rallies the troops, makes the main on-field decisions and communicates with the referee.“The benefit of Siya’s absence – if one can remotely label it that way – is that it’s allowed us to grow others,” said Erasmus.“I certainly learned a lot about other players in certain leadership positions. And let’s be honest, there will be a so-called midweek team at the World Cup. The first-choice players will play against the All Blacks, but in the middle of the tournament you’ll rotate guys. Then you’ll need other captains and this gives us the opportunity to experiment.“Schalk is experienced.”It allows a guy like Kwagga Smith to potentially cement his Cup spotErasmus naturally mentions that the competition among his flankers is quite intense.It’s illustrated by the fact that class acts like Marcell Coetzee, Marco van Staden and Rynhardt Elstadt might be on standby for Japan at best.That said, the man who stands to gain the biggest of Kolisi’s limited game-time at the weekend is the nippy Kwagga Smith.The Lions star has been a busy presence the last two matches, yet still needs to convince some doubters that he can fit into the Boks’ more power-based pattern.“We have some lekker loosies,” said Erasmus.“Kwagga doesn’t stand back for anyone. Don’t look at his weight (which is just over 80kg), but rather his output. He does exactly the same as the rest of the guys in that regard. He could’ve been one of the guys we rested, but with Siya likely to come off early, he provides us with insurance. Now, he has another opportunity to perform.”For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more
