RENTON, Wash. J.J. Watt White Jersey . —Still looking for
wide receiver help, the Seattle Seahawks are bringing Terrell Owens in for a
tryout. The Seahawks confirmed a report from KJR-AM in Seattle late Sunday night
that Owens would be working out for the Seahawks on Monday. The team is off
Monday before returning to practice Tuesday. Owens hasnt played in the NFL since
the 2010 season with Cincinnati when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine
touchdowns. The 38-year-old Owens didnt get any NFL offers to play last season
after surgery on his left knee. He had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10
touchdowns while playing eight of 11 games for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor
Football League. He was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May.

President Sepp Blatter once described English football as being “run by idiots,”
according to Sebastian Coe. Coe, who headed the London Olympics, worked with
Blatter as chairman of FIFAs ethics committee before taking a role with Englands
failed bid to host the 2018 World Cup. Russia won the hosting rights after
Englands bid attracted only two votes following Blatter voicing concerns about
English media intrusion into the FIFA executive committee. In his new
autobiography, Coe claims that Blatter has “always had a problem” with English
football. “From his perspective, its not hard to understand,” Coe writes in an
extract published by The Times of London newspaper. “As president of an
international federation, he sees the unwillingness of English clubs to release
players for international duty. He sees the purchasing power of the English game
—big-name clubs buying up players from all over the world. “And he sees a
national federation that, at the time of the bid, had no chairman or chief
executive. And then he sees our press, permanently focusing on his
organization.” Ahead of the FIFA vote, English Football Association chairman
David Triesman was forced to quit after covert recordings of him making
accusations about rival bidderrs were published by a newspaper. Owen Daniels Womens Jersey. That came shortly
after FA chief executive Ian Watmore quit following a power struggle. “Your game
is run by idiots. Its not run by bright people,” Coe recalls Blatter once saying
to him, without naming any individuals. The power struggles in the English game
frustrated Coe, who said “internecine warfare at home” hampered the World Cup
bid. “The fault, I believe, lies with the awful dysfunctionality of the English
game, its personalities and its politics,” Coe said. “First, you have the FA,
which is the regulatory body. Then you have the Premier League, effectively the
creation of Sky TV and (Rupert) Murdoch money, and were talking billions here.
“Then you have the big clubs and the moguls, including (Roman) Abramovich at
Chelsea and the Glazers at Manchester United, not forgetting the big-beast
managers, such as Alex Ferguson (United) and Arsene Wenger (Arsenal). This has
always been a very uncomfortable set of relationships, at best strained. The
fact that they didnt trust each other and didnt much like each other was a
problem.” Coe is now a vice-president of the International Association of
Athletics Federations, and is due to become British Olympic Association chairman
next month. ’ ’ ’
