TORONTO - The war over words over artificial turf at the Womens World Cup has become bogged down in semantics ahead of Saturdays draw in Ottawa.And that is frustrating the legal team representing a rebel faction of players as it tries to chip away at the monolithic world governing body of soccer.While a legal challenge snakes it way through the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, lawyers for the players have gone down a number of avenues to keep their storyline front and centre.Jerome Valcke, FIFAs secretary-general, seemingly opened up a new path in an Oct. 29 fifa.com article when he said: We will again welcome open dialogue at the official draw on Dec. 6 in Ottawa.But with no players expected to be present at the draw other than Canadian captain Christine Sinclair, it appears that dialogue looks to be very limited.Most players outside North America are in season with their clubs while the U.S., China and Brazil are in Brazil for a tournament. And Sinclair, like the other Canadian players who answer to the host Canadian Soccer Association, has been deliberately kept out of the fray.Hampton Dellinger, the lead lawyer for the women, jumped on Valckes open dialogue comment and invited the FIFA executive to participate in a conference call around the draft with American Abby Wambach, Germanys Nadine Angerer, Spains Veronica Boquete, and Brazils Marta.Valcke declined the offer, telling Dellinger he was unable to meet during the time requested. But he said team representatives and FIFA officials would meet at the draw.FIFA welcomes continued dialogue with players through the competent bodies within FIFA, including the Committee for Womens Football and the FIFA Womens World Cup, wherein female players interests are duly represented, he said in his response.Valcke will be at the draw and, according to the Oct. 29 article, is willing to talk — thought it seems on his terms.Dialogue with the participating teams and, naturally, the players is very important to us and we keep open channels of communication with all parties before, during and after the event ... I, personally, will attend (the draw) alongside our pitch expert and medical teams, and I am sure that in this way we will be able to address all concerns and doubts so that all of the participating teams can focus on their preparation for the biggest event in women’s football, he was quoted in the Oct. 29 article.A FIFA spokesperson reiterated that via email.The FIFA general-secretary is already in contact with players and members associations and will meet with all the team representatives present during his stay on the occasion of the official draw.Valckes rejection drew an immediate, incendiary response from Dellinger.Mr. Valcke, please stop the spin doctoring and shoot the players (and the press and public) straight: will you or will you not speak DIRECTLY with Nadine Angerer, Abby Wambach, and other protesting players about their concerns and doubts regarding the tournament? wrote Dellinger.Awaiting your response are the 2013 World Player of the Year (Angerer), the 2012 World Player of the Year (Wambach), the 2006-10 World Player of the Year (Marta), Australias Samantha Kerr, Spains Veronica Boquete, and the rest of the now 80-member-plus player coalition.Together, they feel the actions of FIFA and CSA (Canadian Soccer Association) are wrong and unlawful. But they also believe, as do I, that there is time to make all aspects of the upcoming Womens World Cup truly world-class.The womens legal complaint argues that playing their showcase tournament on artificial turf is tantamount to discrimination because the men play their World Cup on grass.In recent weeks, lawyers for the women have also pointed the finger at tournament prize money and the use of goal-line technology as differences between the mens and womens events in a bid to bolster their different gender, different treatment argument.While lawyers for the women have been active on legal offence, FIFA has offered a minimal defence — usually via its website.FIFA argues that playing on turf is within the laws of the game, provided it meets set standards, and that artificial turf makes sense for the Canadian climate. And Valcke has said a mens World Cup on artificial turf could come sooner rather than later.FIFA says there is no decision yet on the use of goal-line technology at the Canadian event. Prize money for the 2015 tournament is expected to be announced some time after the FIFA Executive Committee meeting in mid-December.The 32-team mens tournament in Brazil this summer featured total prize money of US$476 million. The total purse of the 16-country womens tournament in 2011 was $7.6 million.The 2015 Womens World Cup, which features 24 teams, runs June 6 to July 5 in Moncton, Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Cheap Dodgers Jerseys .7 million, one-year contract.The deal, announced Friday, includes a $50,000 performance bonus if the left-hander appears in 60 games. Alex Wood Jersey . This is not some token job for a prominent, popular former player. All of those areas need a lot of work, so Molitor is going to be busy. "Hes certainly got a history and knowledge and a high baseball IQ," general manager Terry Ryan said. http://www.cheapdodgersjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-chase-utley-jersey . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .6 seconds left to give the Toronto Raptors a 92-89 victory over the Boston Celtics in an exhibition game Wednesday night. Ross Stripling Jersey . LOUIS -- David Ross never expected to be on a World Series podium.(SportsNetwork.com) - The struggling Toronto Maple Leafs are hoping for a fresh start Wednesday when they emerge from the NHLs All-Star break to visit the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center. The Maple Leafs limped into the break on a six-game losing streak and dropped all six outings in regulation. Torontos offense has been shut out three times during the slide and the club is 1-7-0 since head coach Randy Carlyle was fired and replaced by Peter Horachek on an interim basis. If there is a bright spot for the Leafs, who are 10 points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, its that they managed to score three goals in their most recent outing. The three markers came in last Wednesdays 4-3 loss in Ottawa and the offensive output gives Toronto five total goals during this 0-6-0 slide. Leafs forward Nazem Kadri is one guy who believes the team is heading in the right direction despite the current win drought. There are signs of good things here, Kadri told his teams web site on Tuesday. Obviously were getting losses and it overshadows everything else that were doing. There are a lot of positives and I feel like, despite the results, weve taken steps in the right direction. With some help from Kadri, the Leafs were able to get themselves back in last Wednesdays game after falling behind 3-0 to the Senators in the first period. Kadri tallied a power-play goal early in the third period to make it a 3-2 game, but Toronto was never able to even the score. Erik Karlsson potted the eventual game-winner for Ottawa with 4:40 left in the third. James van Riemsdyk made it a one-goal game for Toronto again with 1:23 remaining, but the score would remain 4-3. David Clarkson also scored for the Maple Leafs, while James Reimer gave up all four goals on 26 shots in the loss. Toronto is just 1-9-0 in January and has lost 14 of 17 dating back to the middle of December. The current six-game swoon is the clubs longest losing streak since a 0-8-0 stretch from March 16-29 of last season. The Devils, meanwhile, have seen bettter results since firing head coach Peter DeBoer in December, going 5-5-1 since the coaching change.ddddddddddddStill, New Jersey finds itself five points in back of Toronto in the East and 15 points out of a playoff spot. New Jersey entered the break on a positive note, completing a 2-1-0 road trip with a 5-2 win in San Jose on Jan. 19. The Devils hope to carry some momentum from the successful swing back home, as they kick off a five-game homestand tonight. Jacob Josefson scored a short-handed goal and added an assist to help Jersey slam the Sharks last week. Cory Schneider made 34 saves for the win and Steve Bernier, Travis Zajac, Jordin Tootoo and Mike Cammalleri all lit the lamp for the Devils. I thought everyone stepped up, said Schneider. We played unselfishly, we played together. Devils forwards Jaromir Jagr and Tuomo Ruutu missed all three games of the recent trip due to illness, but both players were at practice on Tuesday and are expected to play tonight. However, centerman Travis Zajac is questionable for Wednesday after missing Tuesdays practice with an illness of his own. Schneider will get the start in net tonight for the Devils and he boasts a 2-0-2 record and 1.93 goals against average in four career games against Toronto. New Jerseys workhorse goalie picked up a win in Toronto on Dec. 4 by stopping 29-of-32 shots in a 5-3 victory. With the Leafs also scheduled to play tomorrow night against visiting Arizona, Reimer and Jonathan Bernier are likely to split starts over the next two games. Reimer is 4-2-2 with a 2.35 GAA in his career versus New Jersey, while Bernier is 2-2-0 with a 2.67 GAA in this matchup. The Devils have won two in a row over Toronto and have earned a point in their last four outings (2-0-2) against the Leafs. Jersey also halted a three-game home slide versus Toronto with a 3-2 win at Prudential Center on March 23 of last season. Toronto has lost seven straight on the road overall and is just 7-13-3 as the guest this season. New Jersey is 7-7-6 as the host. ' ' '
