Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. Jesus Manuel Corona Jersey . This week they discuss football enrolment, the reimagining of Mike Tyson, Denis the "Tweeting Mayor" Coderre and Sochi security. Bruce Arthur, National Post: My thumb is up to what appears to be happening in football at its roots. ESPN reported this week that Pop Warner Football, Americas biggest youth football program, experienced a 9.5 per cent drop in enrolment between 2010 and 2012, largely over what appears to be a fear of children experiencing concussions. Another survey said participation in tackle football has fallen 13 per cent since 2011. We still have a lot to learn about concussions; not every kid will be irreparably damaged by football, and not every kid will get away clean. But given everything we are learning about the dangers of the game - and since six American high school players have died playing football in 2013 alone - talking about whether you want your kids to take the chance seems like something close to the least a person can do. Steve Simmons, Sun Media: My thumb is down to the daily attempt and the publics buy-in to the rehabilitation of Mike Tysons image. You cant turn on your television set these days without being exposed to a Tyson movie, a documentary, an upcoming book, something. You can even turn on a comedy movie like "The Hangover" and see him in a cameo role. And laugh we all do, uncomfortably. Thats not the Mike Tyson I covered for more than a decade. That guy went to prison for rape in 1992, went to prison again in 1999, was accused of assaulting his first wife, was arrested 38 times before he was 13, arrested again in 2006, 2008, 2009 for drugs and assault and more. You can buy in on the new Mike Tyson. Sorry, Ive seen too much. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: My thumb is up to Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, who tweets em as he sees em. Coderre tweeted he wanted to send scuffling Canadiens centre David Desharnais to Hamilton, which, in Montreal, amounted to taking a strong populist stand. I was awaiting Desharnais tweet that Coderre should be shipped to Chicoutimi. Ive had a fondness for sports mayors ever since Philadelphia mayor Ed Rendell told me before a World Series game at SkyDome that he would relish a chance to hit against Todd Stottlemyre. Anyway, after Desharnais shootout winner in Columbus Friday, Coderre tweeted, "Bravo, David." I look forward to Coderres Twitter account tackling my citys other pressing issues, such as P.K. Subbans penalty killing minutes. Dave Hodge, TSN: My thumb is down to any sporting event whose location, sheer size or stated importance makes necessary the kind of security measures that will exist at huge cost at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. To understand, there were patrols by combat jets, surface-to-air missiles on rooftops and an aircraft carrier on the river Thames at the London Olympics, and Sochi is promising police and soldiers in double the numbers mobilized in 2012. Spectators must carry and show at all times Olympic passports that will not respect their privacy - theyll be watched by more than 5,000 closed-circuit cameras and a fleet of drones - it is said they could be monitored on their phones and computers and their email could be intercepted. And they dare not protest those things or any other things as they go about their business as sports fans. If the games must begin like that, we can only hope they end with everyone still safe, and still free. Mexico Soccer Jersey . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. Mexico Javier Hernandez Jersey . - The Washington Redskins have cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca. http:///...ulido-mexico-jersey/ . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. SPA, Belgium -- Sebastian Vettel needed little time to remind everyone why he remains the overwhelming favourite for a fourth straight Formula One title, clinching a dominant win at the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday to extend his considerable championship lead. With eight races left, Vettel heads to the Italian GP in two weeks time with 197 points -- 46 ahead of Fernando Alonso and 58 clear of Lewis Hamilton, who leapfrogged Kimi Raikkonen into third overall after the Finn retired from the race. Alonso finished the race 16.8 seconds behind Vettel in second spot and Hamilton nearly 30 seconds back in third. "The car was better than we expected going into the race, which I really enjoyed," Vettel said. "Fortunately there was no rain, so no need for any critical calls to be made, and a comfortable afternoon for us." Talk heading into Spa was of Hamilton -- winner of the previous GP in Hungary last month -- emerging as Vettels biggest threat. The Mercedes driver put himself in a great position to pressure Vettel, starting ahead on the front row after securing his fourth consecutive pole position. But Vettel took precisely 31 seconds to silence any doubters. That was how long it took him to overtake Hamilton on the first lap, and he was never in trouble afterward. As he crossed the line, the 26-year-old German pumped his right fist and then wagged his finger aloft -- reminding everyone who really is No. 1 and admonishing those who may have questioned that. "For sure its a positive message today," he said. "Looking forward to Monza now." It was Vettels fifth win of the season, the second from three GPs, and 31st of his career. "When the car works well you dont want the race to stop," he said. "The car was just a pleasure to drive." Alonso drove brilliantly from ninth on the grid to give Ferrari a timely boost and a first podium since the British GP. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg finished fourth ahead of Vettels Red Bull teammate Mark Webber. Hamilton become the first Briton since Damon Hill in 1995 to achieve four straight poles and sat on the front row for the seventh consecutive race. Vettel has not secured a pole since winning the Canadian GP in June. But it made little difference. "Once I passed hhim (Hamilton) I had incredible pace and took control until the end," Vettel said. Vicente Matias Vuoso Jersey. Although Hamilton made a good start and held his line at the first turn into La Source turn, Vettel moved into the slipstream of his Mercedes and surged past him down the uphill Kemmel straight. "Sebastian just caught me massively," Hamilton said. "I just had to watch him glide by." Alonso looked like he was on a mission as he carved through the field, passing last years Spa winner Jenson Button and Rosberg to move into third. "The car had the speed," Alonso said. "The weekend was good for us ... We felt more competitive." After earning a one-race ban for reckless driving at last years race, where his dangerous driving sent three drivers off the track at the first turn, Frenchman Romain Grosjean seemed desperate to avoid even the slightest contact. He ended up on the receiving end when Sergio Perez got a drive through penalty for forcing him off track. Hamilton was the first of the contenders to pit for new tires, followed by Alonso, but Vettel stayed out three laps longer. Halfway through the 44-lap circuit -- the longest in F1 at 7.004 kilometres (4.352 miles) and the most difficult along with Monaco -- Vettel already led by eight seconds. Raikkonen, meanwhile, had to abandon on lap 26 with smoke coming from his front right brake, ending his run of scoring points in 27 consecutive races. Shortly after, Pastor Maldonado crashed into the side of Paul di Resta. Di Resta, the British driver who had high hopes after qualifying fifth, looked disconsolate as he trudged off, helmet in his hand and his race over. Before the race, protesters from the environmental group Greenpeace staged a brief demonstration against race sponsor Shells plans to drill in the Arctic. Two paragliders flew over the circuit, trailing a banner, and others then climbed onto the grandstand roof to unfurl a 20-meter long banner that read "ARCTIC OIL? SHELL NO!" After pitting wits, Hamilton and Vettel then combined to ambush former F1 driver David Coulthard on the race podium, spraying him with their Champagne bottles. "Ive only rented the suit for the day," joked a drenched Coulthard. "I have to give it back." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
