HOUSTON -- As much as Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis wishes otherwise, a decision on allowing him to move his franchise to Las Vegas isnt likely to come anytime soon. New Balance 1600 Black .Thats not to say it wont happen. Several team owners are ready to support the relocation if the right pieces fall into place -- and were not talking roulette wheels.Im pleased theyve made as much progress as they have, Texans owner Robert McNair said Wednesday at the leagues fall meetings, when Davis made a short presentation to the membership. Well look at it when it is finally presented in total. These things are still so fluid, until they nail everything down we dont know what were looking at. Well wait until we have a full package.Its critical to Davis -- and Las Vegas -- that the full package is persuasive enough to overcome some of the debits of the move. Theres the downsizing from the Bay Area, one of Americas prime marketplaces, to much smaller Vegas. Theres the abandoning of Oakland for the second time by the franchise, and this time when the region has shown tremendous growth.There are questions about the involvement of casino owner Sheldon Adelson , who is putting $650 million toward the $1.9 billion domed stadium project. How big will his role be? How involved with the Raiders does he want his casino to be?And, of course, theres the unavoidable topic of gambling.From my perspective, there clearly are shifts in society and the way people view gambling and the way you view even lotteries, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. There have been shifts in that and we obviously monitor that. But we still remain very much opposed to legalized gambling on sports, and we think that has an impact on the integrity of our game, and thats what we watch. Whether people gamble or not is not necessarily our particular focus.What we want to do is make sure were doing whats right for the game, and for the NFL, and thats where our focus will remain.Over the next two months or so, the league will conduct studies of Las Vegas as a potential team home. The Raiders can apply for relocation in January, though Davis has said the team will play the next two seasons in Oakland, fulfilling two one-year lease options. The target, fluid as it is, would be to call the desert home in 2019 at the earliest.There are scenarios, of course, in which the Raiders could wind up in Los Angeles as the second tenant in the Rams new facility in Inglewood, or they would have to wait yet another year to know where they might head.Should the Chargers vacate San Diego for L.A. -- much depends on next months stadium referendum there -- the Southern California option disappears for Davis. But theres also a chance the Chargers could seek a one-year delay on their decision, something three-quarters of the 32 NFL owners would need to approve.Still, Davis pursuit of Las Vegas, and the citys wooing of him, will continue unabated -- barring a last-ditch effort by Oakland to make a proposal that works for the Raiders and the league.Oakland was in the drivers seat if they couldve put together anything, Davis said. They came up with nothing. Las Vegas has already done what it is supposed to do and we have to bring it up to the National Football League and get permission to move to Las Vegas.The other owners are listening.I have an open mind, Giants owner John Mara said. Theres a lot more work to be done. Where the land is (for the stadium), what the public money is, where are we with Oakland? Market studies need to be done.They made a good presentation, Mara added of the Raiders, but were a long ways from a determination.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL New Balance 999 Grey . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. New Balance 574 Red . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. http://www.nbalanceshoesuk.biz/new-balance-530-uk.html . 1 position. The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. CHICAGO -- Chris Sale returned from his jersey-trashing suspension to smiles and hugs from teammates and pitched well.It wasnt good enough, though, not with John Lackey outpitching him and Aroldis Chapman throwing 102 mph fastballs.The Cubs did just enough against the White Sox ace in his six innings and rode their own pitching to a 3-1 victory Thursday night in Chicagos rivalry series.It was fun to be in the dugout and check that out, Lackey said of Chapmans sizzling fastballs.Sale faced dozens of reporters after the game, heaping praise on his teammates, sidestepping questions about the jersey-tearing and expressing gratitude to be back.It felt like I was out on an island, really, Sale said of his suspension.Sale (14-4) served a five-day ban for tearing up 1976-style uniforms he didnt want to wear before his previous scheduled start. He had command issues, but worked out of trouble while allowing two runs and six hits.Lackey (8-7) allowed one run in six innings for his first win since June 8. Chapman, in his second appearance since being acquired from the Yankees, struck out two and consistently hit 102 mph in his first save for his new team.It makes me feel proud when I go out there and the fans are cheering, Chapman said through catcher Miguel Montero, who served as his translator.Kris Bryant, who homered against Sale in the All-Star Game, hit an RBI double off the center field wall in the first inning off Sale.Ben Zobrist added an RBI single in the third and doubled and scored in the eighth as the Cubs earned a split of the four-game series and spoiled Sales night.The lefty was scratched from his start Saturday, sent home and then suspended for cutting up a number of collared throwback jerseys the team was supposed to wear for the game. Sale said they were uncomfortable and became enraged when the team wouldnt switch them out, feeling the team was putting marketing over winning.Were here to win games and from this point forward I think thats our main focus, Sale said. I hope it is, too.The incident provided plenty of fodder for heckling Cubs fans at Wrigley Field. The Cubs tweeted out their lineup before the game with the line Throwback Thursday, anyone?Several teammates hugged a smiling Sale when he arrived in the clubhouse before the game. New Balance 580 Black. I knew who they were before this, but I found out who they really are and what theyre about, he said.Sale, pitching for the first time since July 18, didnt seem fazed by the controversy in his 111-pitch outing. He also improved to 2 for 16 at the plate when his slow grounder up the middle hit second base and bounded away for a single.The White Sox scored in the first when Melky Cabrera doubled and Tim Anderson ran through third base coach Joe McEwings stop sign, stopped, then continued home and beat an offline throw.Tyler Saladino doubled off former closer Hector Rondon in the eighth. But Chapman came in with two outs and struck out Cabrera on a 102 mph fastball.Big moment there, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.Chapman struck out Todd Frazier and got two groundouts in the ninth as the crowd buzzed as the radar gun reading flashed on the scoreboard.After a rough introductory news conference when he struggled to answer questions about a previous domestic violence case, Chapman said he was ecstatic about the environment.TRAINERS ROOMWhite Sox: Manager Robin Ventura said he hopes LHP Carlos Rodon (wrist) will be able to start Sunday at Minnesota.Cubs: With OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) close to returning, the team will have a difficult roster decision. Going back and forth on a lot of different thoughts and ideas, Maddon said.HEYWARD SITSJason Heyward, who signed a $184 million contract with the Cubs in the offseason, didnt start as Maddon went with a righty-heavy lineup vs. Sale. Heyward, hampered by a sore wrist, is hitting .229 with four homers and has a .315 slugging percentage.Man, I dont know that anybody could handle it better than the way he has, Maddon said of his struggles. I really believe were due for a nice run out of him shortly.UP NEXTWhite Sox: DH Justin Morneau, who won the AL MVP with the Twins in 2006, returns to Minnesota on Friday. LHP Jose Quintana (8-8, 2.97 ERA) faces Twins RHP Ricky Nolasco (4-8, 5.40).Cubs: LHP Jon Lester (10-4, 3.09 ERA) starts Friday at Wrigley Field to begin a three-game interleague series with Seattle and RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (11-6, 3.96).
