Documents filed Monday in Miami federal

Two months ago, Richmond coach Damien Hardwick raised eyebrows in some places -- and hearty guffaws in others -- when he suggested the Tigers current playing list was the best hed had at his disposal. Air Max 97 Pas Chère .At the time, Richmond had just scored encouraging wins over Sydney and Fremantle -- after their horror start to the season -- so perhaps the burst of over-excitement and optimism could be forgiven.But football analysts less emotionally invested in the Tigers were looking at their squad more objectively and wondering how on earth Hardwick could come to that conclusion.After the Big Five -- Trent Cotchin, Brett Deledio, Dustin Martin, Alex Rance and Jack Riewoldt -- the Tiges list falls away as sharply as the British pound after last months Brexit vote. In terms of talent, it has not much more depth than a sidewalk puddle.Now the Tigers sit in 13th place on the ladder with a 7-10 win-loss record, having won one game more than supposed basket-case, Gold Coast.And in a tough five-week stretch to end their campaign, contests against GWS, Geelong, St Kilda and Sydney await.The 2016 season, Hardwicks seventh at the helm, is shaping as another bust.The main complaint from supporters is not just the losses that keep piling up but the teams tedious, indirect style of play. They routinely switch play across half-back, going sideways and backwards. Theres little flair and cause for excitement and Riewoldt, one player capable of getting fans out of their seats, is seemingly encouraged to play up the ground rather than in the goalsquare.Richmonds BigFooty forum -- admittedly not always the repository of all that is rational and level-headed -- is running a poll on whether the club needs a new coach or not. At the moment, the movement for change is running at 82 percent; those supporting Hardwick at 18 percent.For many, the effort in the last quarter against Hawthorn on Sunday was the straw that broke the camels back, the Hawks piling on nine goals to two in the final 30 minutes. Richmonds final score of 5.14 (44) was their lowest in Hardwicks seven seasons in charge.Even the Tigers greatest spruiker, Kevin Bartlett, the games record holder and former coach, said he was dismayed by what he saw at the MCG. He told his SEN radio audience on Monday: The last quarter was like a training drill for Hawthorn: there was no pressure, very little effort, they were kicking sideways and backwards. I was taken aback by the lack of effort.On FoxFootys On the Couch program, another former coach, Robert Walls, was equally bemused by the clubs progress, saying the Big Five players were too sensitive to criticism and not great leaders.Of course, chief executive Brendon Gale and his team have done wonderful things off the field, turning around the clubs finances and getting the membership up beyond 72,000. Even if their decision in March to re-sign Hardwick for a further two years was an absurd misjudgment.But on the field, a state of confusion reigns.Thats evidenced by the muddled messaging coming out of Punt Rd this year.After the Round 3 loss to Adelaide, Hardwick suggested the club needed to take a half step backwards to take two steps forwards. To many that sounded like he was smoothing the way for a rebuild.Six weeks later, on May 27, he was hailing his squad as champions in the making.After Sundays Hawthorn defeat, he called the teams late defensive efforts as nothing short of shameful, and gave his best midfielder this year, Dusty Martin, a clip on the way through.Canning the Tigers has become something of a sport within the AFL commentarial. But, gee, they bring a lot of the ridicule on themselves.If this is indeed the best playing list Hardwick has had at his disposal, we hold grave fear for the clubs -- and his -- short-term future. Air Max 97 Grise . McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care. "Weve told him to stay as long as necessary with your dad," he said. Ovechkin and his Russian national team were eliminated from the mens hockey tournament in Sochi on Wednesday with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland. Nike Flex Experience Rn 4 Femme . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. . Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said.
