Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment may turn again to a U. LeVeon Bell Steelers Jersey .S. executive to help guide Canadas largest sports company. Over the past weeks, MLSEs board has been compiling a list of those who might be qualified to succeed Tim Leiweke, the companys outgoing chief executive. Starting with a group of more than 40 executives who might be interested in the job, MLSEs board winnowed that list down to between six and 12 candidates, according to a person familiar with the matter. Unlike its previous go-around, MLSE did not hire an executive search firm to help with the process. None of those contacted by the board were women. Former Madison Square Garden executive Hank Ratner has emerged as a possible favourite for the job, according to two sources close to the MLSE board. Others interviewed for the position include NHL executive John Collins and CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon, although neither one is seen as a likely hire by MLSE, the sources told TSN. Collins has helped to build the NHLs business through savvy marketing and a host of outdoor hockey games, but also was instrumental in awarding the NHLs Canadian TV rights to Rogers Communications. That might complicate his hiring, since Rogers jointly owns MLSE with its competitor Bell Media, which also sought those rights. Bell is TSNs parent company. Cohon, meantime, has led the CFL through a period of relative peace, negotiating a larger TV contract with TSN in 2013, but has also been the leagues chief executive during a time when the Toronto Argonauts, who play in the countrys biggest media market, have struggled to grow interest from fans and sponsors alike. Ratner is 54 and was president and CEO of MSG from July 2009 until early this year. While at MSG, he oversaw the $1 billion expansion and renovation of the companys landmark arena, where the New York Rangers and Knicks play their home games. He also has worked as a senior executive with Cablevision. The renovation of MSG was admired and received widespread praise. The arenas concourses were widened, 58 new luxury boxes and more bathrooms were added and innovative carpeted bridges were built above the rink and hardwood court to expand the arenas seating capacity. Ratner wouldnt come cheap. According to Forbes magazine, his compensation during 2013 was about $11 million. He joined Cablevision as a lawyer in 1987, according to a Bloomberg News story that broke the news of Ratners departure in February from MSG. Its unclear why Ratner left MSG. If Leiweke came with an august resume to MLSE from Anschutz Entertainment Group, Ratner also would seem to offer broad sports entertainment experience. MSG also owns a regional sports network, the Beacon Theatre in New York and the Forum in Inglewood, California. Ratner did not respond to phone messages or emails seeking comment. An MLSE spokesman declined to comment. A CFL spokesman did not respond to an email asking for comment. MLSE plans to bring finalists for the Leiweke job into Toronto this week for interviews. The company would like to decide on his successor within the next week or so, a source told TSN. Ladarius Green Steelers Jersey .35 million, avoiding arbitration. Davis led the majors last season with 53 home runs and 138 RBIs, both career highs. He earned $3. Cameron Heyward Steelers Jersey . The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest. http://www.shoptheofficialsteelers.com/Elite-Deangelo-Williams-Steelers-Jersey/ . -- Lara Gut of Switzerland regained the overall World Cup lead with Sundays super-G win in Lake Louise, Alta.IRVING, Texas - The question of DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant staying in Dallas could end up a tough choice between the NFL rushing leader or the leagues highest-scoring receiver.Cowboys owner Jerry Jones seems to be leaning the fiscally responsible way.Let me put it like this: Its going to be a challenge, Jones said of re-signing both of Dallas biggest potential free agents. But is it — you use the word financially reasonable — no. Is it possible? Yes.There was a time in Jones quarter century of owning the Cowboys that anything was possible with his biggest stars, even in the salary-cap era. This isnt the same Jones, who showed it last year by releasing franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware to clear cap space even though the Cowboys didnt have anyone close to such a dynamic pass rusher.If you just look at it from the standpoint of dollars and cents, it probably doesnt look reasonable, Jones said Thursday when he announced new contracts for coach Jason Garrett, defensive co-ordinator Rod Marinelli and newly promoted offensive co-ordinator Scott Linehan. At the end of the day, you do realize its going to be costly to have both those players.Bryant led the NFL with 16 touchdowns receiving, and has the most in the league going back to 2011. His touchdown total has increased every season.Murray was the leagues runaway leader with 1,845 yards rushing and broke all-time NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smiths franchise record from 1995. He played with a broken hand to complete a full season for the first time in his four-year career.We want to do everything we can to keep this group together, help this group get better and take that next step, Garrett said.He recounted the story of former coach and TV analyst John Madden reacting to Derek Jeters memorable backhand flip that played a key role in the New York Yankees winning a playoff series against Oakland more than a decade ago.They were talking about Derek Jeter, and Madden said Jeter is one of those guys who you pick first and decide what game youre playing next,, Garrett said. Louis Lipps Steelers Jersey. I think about that really every day. Thats a really important concept for our organization — the idea that you want these guys here, whether theyre coaches, players.Since Jones said it would be going too far to suggest that both players are gone, the issue could be which player to keep. The Cowboys can use the franchise tag on one of them, and it would be more expensive on Bryant, perhaps by as much as $5 million.But Dallas could use the tag to buy more time to negotiate a long-term deal with Bryant, who turned down an offer before the 2014 season started. He has since joined Jay Zs Roc Nation, with agent Tom Condon leading his team.With Murrays looming free agency, the debate all season was whether another serviceable back could do the same thing behind a young offensive line considered one of the leagues best.The three first-round picks from the past four years — left tackle Tyron Smith, centre Travis Frederick and right guard Zack Martin — all made the Pro Bowl, and Martin was the first Dallas rookie to make All-Pro since Calvin Hill in 1969.The Cowboys arent expected to pick up the $9 million option on defensive tackle Henry Meltons contract, and cornerback Brandon Carrs $12 million cap hit makes him a likely candidate for a pay cut or a release after he didnt have an interception for the first time in his career.No matter how much wiggle room Jones and the front office can create, he simply doesnt sound like the same owner who was hamstrung by cap problems when he tried to keep his Super Bowl teams intact in the late 1990s.You remember when that cap makes you poor and you wake up and have those days when you dont have the money and dont have the flexibility, Jones said. That dream was out the window, and there you were paying the bills on it.A couple of big bills are coming due, if Jones decides he wants to pay them.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler NFL Jerseys China cheap jerseys ' ' '
