Twitter: the place media and the public alike turns for news and public sentiment. DeMarre Carroll Jersey . Its a reflection of what individuals, groups and brands deem important for those with interest. The respective Twitter accounts of the Tampa Buccaneers and Manchester United took different approaches Wednesday upon news of the passing of Malcolm Glazer, 85, owner of NFLs Bucs and patriarch of the Glazers takeover of United. A life celebrated by the Buccaneers, a life unacknowledged by United. @TBBuccaneers told a story of the loss of a beloved owner and friend, with condolences and heartfelt messages pouring in from across the NFL world. Pictures were shared of Glazer hoisting the Lombardi trophy among fitting tributes to a Super Bowl winner and highly regarded franchise owner. There was no mention of Glazers death on Manchester Uniteds Twitter account (@ManUtd). A brief, 75-word mention on Manutd.com was the depth of any tribute. No pictures of Premier League glory. No acknowledgement of what he and his family have done for the club. Silence, which speaks volumes. Instead of paying tribute to the life of Glazer, @ManUtd daily content featured a picture of Sri Lankas cricketers paying a visit to Old Trafford, and condolences of the passing of former player and 1958 FA Cup winner Stan Crowther. It was best for the club to ignore, rather than enrage. The worldwide reaction to Glazers death has brought back a groundswell of negative emotion. The story of the Glazers truly provides a cautionary tale; with ownership does not come entitlement. The Glazers remain controversial, disliked and untrustworthy even nine years after the familys leveraged takeover of Manchester United. Glazer Out and Love United, Hate Glazer remain the popular sentiments among the majority of Manchester Uniteds roughly 660 million supporters worldwide. Five Premier League titles and Champions League glory cannot wash away ill feelings. The issues are as much symbolic as they are fiscal and they run deep. Over £680 million has been spent paying down the debt on the club purchase of approximately £790 million in 2005. Malcolm didnt have the liquidity to purchase the team without incurring incredible debt. Manchester United was purchased on debt, taking the club from once financially secure and debt-free into a new era of massive debt payments and financial unknown. Current club debt sits at £351.7 million despite a growing number of brand partnerships and sponsors and unprecedented popularity. Debt remains a burden and central influence on club direction. Bankruptcy is not a realistic end game because Manchester United is far too lucrative. The brand itself thrives and continues to grow, with the Glazers squeezing as much revenue as possible from the logo. The brand is Teflon. Thats fine and part of business. Heres where its important to separate the brand from emotion. There is no personal relationship, nor overriding fandom as the driving force in the Glazers interest in United. There never has been. The Glazer ownership seems no more than a stale, unemotional business transaction. Buy, sell, grow, expand, its all about monetary growth. The very essence of the North American sporting culture, rendering a product thats popularity comes from a place of passion to becoming a series of business transactions and a moneymaker. Soulless. There is supposed to be something more substantial as motive towards ownership of a club like United than merely dollars and cents – a level of romanticism, a guardianship from a place of genuine affection. Malcolm never stepped foot in Old Trafford, a stroke in 2006 contributed to the detachment. Sons Avram and Joel are co-chairmen and are heavily involved in the operation of the club. Three of Malcolms other children owning stake have rarely, if ever been seen. Sadly, these individuals will play decisive roles in what happens at United next. Although Malcolm never had anything to do with the day-to-day operation, hell forever been synonymous with the controversial takeover of United. After failing in his attempt to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers over a decade ago, Glazer turned his attention to Old Trafford. Glazer began buying up smaller portfolios of ownership, setting himself up to take advantage of the dispute between manager Sir Alex Ferguson with United shareholders JP McManus and John Magnier over the stud rights of racehorse Rock of Gibraltar. Glazer bought McManus/Magniers shares in 2005, taking control of almost 75 percent of club shares and allowing him to strong-arm the board and remaining shareholders on his way to complete control. Many hands were dirty putting Malcolm on the fast track to ownership, inside and outside of the club. The Premier League stood idle as Manchester United supporters made their disapproving voices heard. League overseers have remained absent in the fight. Those who the team is supposed to represent are true victims of this power play. Trevor Booker Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Jarrett Allen Jersey . Raymond, 31, started 15 regular-season games for the Stamps in 2013, racking up 51 tackles. He also returned two kickoffs for 79 yards including a 61-yarder. http://www.nbanetsauthority.com/caris-le...rsey-c-15/ . On Thursday, a judge said Varlamov could be released if he posted $5,000 bond and be allowed to travel with the team but he was ordered to stay away from his girlfriend, among other restrictions. MONTREAL -- Rachel Homan started defence of her Scotties Tournament of Hearts title in style. Homan and her Team Canada (1-0) rink from Ottawa scored four in the eighth end for an 8-3 victory over Manitobas Chelsea Carey (0-1) on Saturday night at the Maurice Richard Arena. "The team played really well in front of me," said Homan, the winner last year in Kingston, Ont. "It was a tough battle. It was 4-3 and then one big end kind of ended it. My team just really had it today." It was a nervy but successful start for Val Sweetings Alberta rink. The Sweeting team (2-0) with lead Rachel Pidherny, second Dana Ferguson and third Joanne Courtney scored three points in the ninth end for a comeback 7-5 victory over 20-year-old newcomer Sarah Koltun (0-1) of the Yukon and Northwest Territories in the opening draw. In the evening, Sweeting took the early lead, wasted it, and then scored two in an extra end for an 8-6 win over 22-year-old Kesa van Osch of British Columbia (1-1). Heather Strong (2-0) of Newfoundland used the shot of the day to edge the home team, Quebecs Allison Ross (0-2), 5-4 with a raised angle takeout on the final shot. Stefanie Lawton (1-0) of Saskatchewan downed Allison Flaxeys Ontario rink (0-1) 8-6. Koltun looked ready for an upset when she stole a point for a 4-1 lead in the fifth end to throw a scare into 26-year-old Sweeting, a youngster herself in only her second Scotties. "They were outplaying us for sure," said Sweeting. "We set up some good ends and she made some good draws to save them, but we stayed patient and had an opportunity in the ninth and took advantage. "Im happy to get out of that one with a win, but we definitely have to sharpen up. We knew we couldnt take them lightly. Its their first time here and they have nothing to lose." A miss by Koltun with her first stone in the ninth set up the decisive steal by Alberta. Sweetings rink kept the house clear in the 10th and left no chance for the Whitehorse skip to force an extra end. Koltun is the youngest skip ever to play in the Scotties and is the first to skip at the Canadian junior and Scotties championships in the same year. She went 5-4 at the juniors two weeks ago in Liverpool, N.S. with two of her three teammates at the Scotties. She skipped a record seven times at national junior championships and is considered among the risingg talents in the sport. DAngelo Russell Jersey. . But she may have let one get away in her debut. "We were in control at the beginning and it was just that one bad end, but its our first game at our first Scotties so well take what we can from it," said Koltun. "We are happy to be here, but we want to contend and be competitive and I think we showed that in this first game by putting up a really strong fight." Quebecs Allison Ross had a disappointing start as she failed to score until she picked up one point in the eighth end. After scoring, Ross conceded a 6-1 victory to New Brunswicks Andrea Crawford. The Quebec side from Montreal curled only 64 per cent as a group, lowest of the day. She found her draw weight in her evening match against Strong, which had the crowd of 1,825 roaring, but fell short when the Newfoundland skip pulled off her winning takeout. "I was reading the ice better," said Ross. "Its a disappointing loss, but Heather made an amazing shot. You want to leave the other team a hard shot, and she made it." Strong had won the Hot Shots competition -- a pre-tournament skills exhibition -- on Saturday morning and it may have helped her against Quebec. "A lot of the (Hot Shots) are indicative of what you face in game, so I referred back to that a lot," she said. "I felt good when I threw it, but I was coming off missing the one right before it, so I was a little torn. "We were exhausted. It was late back home. There were the opening ceremonies, we were in the Hot Shots right through. It was a long day, so to pull off that second win was awesome." Strong had won her first match as she took a 6-2 lead after six ends, then had to hold off a charge from Nova Scotias Heather Smith (0-1) for an 8-5 victory. Van Osch needed an extra end to defeat Kim Dolans Prince Edward Island rink 7-4. The 22-year-old from Victoria admitted to feeling nervous in her debut match, but settled down as it went on against the veteran Dolan, who is in her 10th Scotties. Van Osch said she hasnt set any goals for the tournament. "Were a first-year team," she said. "It was a bonus just to make it to the Scotties this year. Were taking things as they come, game by game." There are three draws scheduled for Sunday, including Team Canada against both Ontario and Quebec. 23:04ET 01-02-14 Cheap Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys ' ' '
