Although the report of the Dzamefe Commission of Enquiry is ready, a review of the recommendations will be done after Ghana’s participation at the African Nations Cup, the Sports Ministry has said.The three-member commission led by Appeals Court Judge Justice Senyo Dzamefe completed its work in December 2014 with key recommendations on how to prevent the repetition of the debacle that accompanied Ghana’s participation in the World Cup tournament in Brazil last year.The Commission took four months to probe into issues leading to Ghana’s shameful exit from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.Evidence was gathered from officials of the Ghana FA and the Sports Ministry, some Black Stars players, travel and tour operators and other service providers, journalists and supporters groups.The commission however went ahead to complete its report without hearing from AC Milan star Sulley Muntari – considered a key witness as his name popped up in virtually all issues related to the Black Stars at the World Cup.The Commission has hinted the former Inter Milan man who has been suspended indefinitely from the Black Stars could face sanctions for snubbing their request. With 15 days to the Black Stars’ participation at the continental Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea, concerns have been raised about measures to prevent the events that characterised Ghana’s disappointing performance at the World Cup.But Youth and Sports Minister Mahama Ayariga told Joy News adequate measures have been put in place to ensure that Ghana’s participation in the AFCON is incident free.”We are talking about making sure that financial arrangements should be made to ensure that they [Black Stars] travel there; are resourced while they are there; their remuneration and benefits et cetera have all been made ready”, said Mr Ayariga.Mr. Ayariga also indicated that the Black Stars players will receive their appearance fees and bonuses via cheques.He said paying the stars in cheque instead of cash is aimed at avoiding the embarrassment Ghana suffered when three million dollars was airlifted to Brazil to pay the players as appearance fees and bonuses.

He then played two seasons in Penticton in the BC Hockey League before getting a scholarship with Boston College.During his senior season at Boston College, MacLeod served as an assistant captain while playing all 40 games for the Eagles.He tallied 11 assists with four of the points coming 20 Hockey East contests, finished with a plus-8 rating and set Patrick Brown up with the game-winning goal to help Boston College clinch its fifth-consecutive Beanpot title.Off the ice, MacLeod won the William J. Flynn Coaches Award captured the Academic Excellence Award as the senior with the highest grade point average.“My four years at BC (Boston College) was an amazing experience for me,” MacLeod explained.“I grew and learned so much in many different aspects of life from hockey to academics and everything in between. BC and the people I met there have had a tremendous impact on me and have helped shape who I will become moving forward.”“It’s weird to think that I’ve graduated and won’t be back there in the fall wearing the Maroon and Gold again,” he added.“It was an experience I’ll always treasure and am very proud to call myself an Eagle.”After spending some time in Nelson, the youngest of Deborah and Allan MacLeod’s three children trekked to the Alberta Capitol to work on a golf-course, train, try to gain some weight, and, for the most part, work on the golf game.MacLeod has been also able to train with the Correale cousins, Nic, Dan and (former Nelson Leaf) Gus, the latter two relations who attend NCAA schools.And, of course, wait after seeing the depth the Sharks have on defence for the upcoming future.“I’ve talked to my agent a couple times and he basically just tells me it’s a process,” said MacLeod, part of the Nelson Leafs KIJHL title winning squad in 2009.“He’s in contact with teams at different levels trying to find a spot where I’m wanted and will be able to succeed. I just have to be focused on working out hard and gaining weight.”Despite the wait, MacLeod is confident his credentials will have the former Nelson Leaf rearguard manning the blueline somewhere in 2014-15.“I’m confident I’ll have somewhere to play next year, I’m not sure where it’ll be or what league but I’ll be playing (somewhere) even if it’s on Tuesday nights in Nelson,” MacLeod says jokingly.“Best case scenario would be attending an NHL camp but I just want to be in a situation that I have a chance to improve and am given an opportunity to perform and play.” Like many college or university graduates Isaac Macleod has been busy scanning the employment pages looking for a place to hang his hat.Having recently graduated from Boston College with business degree from the Carroll School of Management with a concentration in Economics, the Nelson native is hungry to gain meaningful employment.However, Macleod has been pigeonholed into a strange category when it comes to finding a new job and can’t even speak to prospective employers until mid-August when the Nelson native becomes a free agent.Oh, I guess we forgot to explain that along with his Carroll School of Managementbusiness degree, MacLeod is a graduate of the Boston College Eagles Men’s Hockey team and should be a lock to be playing hockey somewhere next season.“It’s definitely been a process moving forward,” Macleod, the 136th overall selection — fifth round — of the San Jose Sharks in the 2010 NHL draft.“I have to be patient and basically just do what I can to prepare for next season wherever that may be.”MacLeod’s wait is all because of a rule in the NHL Collective Bargaining Agreement that states an NHL club retains the rights of the player for exclusive negotiation through August 15 following the graduation of his college class provided he remains a college student through at least the start of his senior season.Meaning while Boston College teammate Thatcher Demko was attending the Canucks prospects camp in Vancouver earlier this summer after being drafted in the second-round of the 2014 NHL draft at No. 36, MacLeod is on the outside looking in as he trains vigorously in Edmonton with his cousins.“It’s extremely hard not knowing where I’ll be playing or what league or anything but I’ve just been training and working and trying to prepare for wherever I do end up next year,” the 6’5”, 212 pound mobile rearguard explained from Edmonton.“Hopefully someone will give me an opportunity so I can keep playing the game.”“I was very happy for Demmer to get drafted, especially to an organization like the Canucks,” added MacLeod, finishing his college career with two goals for 27 points in 142 games and a NCAA Championship in 2012.“(I have to admit) I was a bit bummed out about not going to any development camps but that’s the way she goes. It’s a great experience going to camps like that because there are so many coaches and players that can help teach you things to improve your game.”MacLeod played minor hockey in Nelson before joining the Nelson Leafs of the KIJHL.

Hector Bellerin enjoys full 90 for Arsenal U23 in Liverpool drawby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal fullback Hector Bellerin completed 90 minutes as they came from two goals down to draw with Liverpool at Meadow Park.The Spaniard came close to an opener when he drove through the visitors’ defence and fired a shot at goal but Ben Winterbottom saved well at his near post. Matt Macey then made a brilliant recovery save to keep out Rhian Brewster’s looping header from close range.Liverpool’s pressure paid off when Curtis Jones tapped in following Luis Longstaff’s low cross.The second then came when Jones met another Longstaff cross to head home. The Gunners were back in it on the stroke of half-time when Nathan Tormey beat the offside trap to slot the ball past Winterbottom.Early in the second half Folarin Balogun levelled the scores when he made no mistake from close range following Bellerin’s low cross.

Sunday night, the 2015 NCAA Tournament field was revealed, and unsurprisingly, Kentucky was named the overall No. 1 seed. The Wildcats are also the odds-on favorite to win this year’s national title, per Bovada. In fact, Kentucky is almost at even money to take home the trophy – they’re currently listed at 6:5 to win it all.Arizona, the 2-seed in the West Region, actually has the second-highest odds. Wisconsin checks in third, with Duke fourth. Villanova and Virginia come in at 10:1.Here’s a list of all 68 tournament teams, along with their odds to win the championship. You could make a lot of money betting on a 16-seed to win it all, but we wouldn’t advise it. No 16-seed has ever even won an NCAA Tournament game, much less a title.Who are you betting on?
