“We’re still in the first inning here,” O’Malley said.According to the proposal, the facility would be built on land between the parking lot and Academy Road. The new stadium and Dodger Stadium would share parking, much like Arrowhead Stadium and Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.The additional traffic in the neighborhood would be limited to Saturday and Sunday afternoons, 10 dates a year for the pro team and five or six dates for a college team that could share the facility.It is understood that O’Malley would not have considered the idea if it meant taking football away from a city and county managed facility such as the Coliseum.However, insiders said Friday that the Coliseum “is not among our options,” probably because of its condition and location.Margaret Farnum, a member of the Coliseum Commission, was shocked by O’Malley’s proposal.”I always think of him as being the foremost baseball owner and doing it well,” she said. “I’m disappointed because if a stadium went there, it doesn’t bode well for the Coliseum getting a team.”Hollywood Park, which nearly landed the Raiders four months ago, has also been dropped to the bottom of the list because of concerns about the facility’s proximity to gambling.Another name being mentioned around the league as a possible Los Angeles stadium financier is oil man and entertainment mogul Marvin Davis.Michael Eisner of Disney Corp., an earlier favorite in the stadium sweepstakes, has yet to convince influential owners that he is serious about bringing a team to Orange County.San Francisco 49er president Carmen Policy expressed delight at O’Malley’s potential involvement with bringing football to Los Angeles.”The O’Malleys are synonymous with good ownership in professional sports,” Policy said.

In 2007, Sadip organised a group of local farmers engaged in conservation activities including propagating tree seedlings and growing trees in their own gardens. Through this group, known as MAMA, he shares knowledge and expertise with neighbouring communities. “His idea is that people should be able to conserve the nature around them independently”, says Tiburtius Hani.
Feigning injury serves a purpose, buying time to change out players, re think strategy or get input from the coach. In the long run, taking short cuts is not the best defense. Participating in this tactic is purely a mindset issue. Have you ever met an angry Florida Panthers fan? They don’t exist. And they probably have four kids who love the team, too, even though they suck. Beckham’s group should figure out a way to make games a place you want to bring your 12 year old and all his soccer teammates..
