The Wollongong Wolves are bracing for an A-League turf war against a renewed push for a third Sydney team based in the citys south. Teuvo Teravainen Jersey .The former National Soccer League champions will consider an expansion bid once Football Federation Australia releases its criteria early next year, according to new CEO Chris Papakosmas, who began in the job on Monday.But the Wolves, who won back-to-back titles in 2000 and 2001, appear to be wheeling in the big guns to stave off FFAs favoured option of a super club encompassing the Sutherland, St George and Illawarra regions.Papakosmas joins the Wolves after 25 years in the media industry and is closely aligned with Wollongong-based television mogul Bruce Gordon, his former employer at WIN Television.Billionaire Gordon has long been touted as a potential A-League investor and its believed he met with former FFA chairman Frank Lowy last year when the governing body was considering removing Wellington Phoenix from the competition.For the time being at least, Papakosmas said the Wolves will be purely focused on their immediate vision - to stabilise the clubs finances and roll out a new, low-cost junior pathway program.But once FFAs expansion framework is made public, theyll take a serious look.If guidelines come out in January or February, of course were going to look at those guidelines very, very closely, Papakosmas told AAP.Papakosmas said it would be presumptuous to assume Gordon, who held talks to buy 50 per cent of NRL club St George Illawarra earlier this year, is keen to fund a Wollongong A-League bid - or that he is the extent of the clubs corporate connections.Bruce is a very well-known, successful businessman down in this region and hell decide whats in his best interests, he said.But in saying that, we have some very, very significant contacts and connections within corporate Australia, here on the South Coast and right across the country, and we intend to leverage those when its most appropriate and suits everyone involved.Football South Coast has been involved in regular meetings with FFA over the concept of a third Sydney franchise and chairman Eddy de Gabriele told SBS the association is not foolish enough to chase a stand-alone team.Its expected a new Sydney side would split games between Wollongongs WIN Stadium and Cronullas Southern Cross Group Stadium.However, Papakosmas believes that would be the wrong way to go.I cant speak on anyone elses behalf, but eventually when FFA decides whats in the best interests of football in the country, is it a truly expansive league that incorporates all the major football-loving regions in the country, or is it a dilution of certain areas that already have representation? he said. Eddie Lack Jersey . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Jeff Skinner Jersey . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. http:///...msdyk-Adidas-Jersey/ .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. Baylor?quarterback Seth Russell will undergo season-ending surgery after fracturing his left ankle at Oklahoma on Saturday. The surgery will end his college career at Baylor.Russell was injured after being tackled on a 9-yard run midway through the third quarter. He was carted off the field, but not before players from both teams approached Russell to shake hands and exchange high-fives before he was driven off the field. Russell was able to leave the stadium on crutches with his lower leg heavily wrapped.Russell suffered a season-ending injury last year when he fractured a vertebra in his neck. The injury eventually required surgery, but he was cleared to play again over the summer.Seth worked so hard to come back from the neck injury, and its not about losing the talent and production at quarterback, its more just like having one of your own children hurt, Baylor coach Jim Grobe said. It breaks your heart to see a really, really good guy get hurt like that. Sebastian Aho Jersey. Just really, really sad because you love the kid so much.Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield expressed his support for Russell after the game, which the Sooners won 45-24.You hate it for a guy like Seth because hes such a good guy, Mayfield said. Its more unfortunate because he had the neck injury last year. Like I said, you hate it for a guy like that, but hes going to handle it really well. He always does. Thats how he handles everything.Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph also weighed in on Twitter to wish Russell well.With Russell out, true freshman Zach Smith will take over for the Bears at quarterback. He completed 6 of 15 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown in relief of Russell on Saturday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
