BBC SPORT | Football | England omission angered Beckham
BBC News – Sep 18, 2006
“It was a hard, tough decision but six years as captain was the right time. I didn’t think I would be playing the 2010 World Cup and I thought it was right for a new captain to take them forward. “I spoke to Gary Neville, because he’s my best friend and Victoria, and everyone agreed. I didn’t want to announce it before the World Cup because I didn’t want the captaincy issue to disrupt the set up.

Despite their tenuous positions in the points standings, only Henry made the cut at the PGA. None of the four finished in the top 30 in any of this year’s major championships. Johnson, at 40th, is highest among the four in the Official World Golf Ranking, while the other three fall between 59th and 65th. Two of them, Wetterich and Taylor, have virtually no match-play experience.

Cup may entice O’Neill
NEWS.com.au – Sep 20, 2006
article-tools –> Mike Colman September 20, 2006 11:00pm DEPARTING soccer boss John O’Neill could be back in the game in a matter of months if rumours of South Africa relinquishing the 2010 FIFA World Cup come to fruition. Recent reports coming out of South Africa have cast doubts on the republic’s ability to host the world’s largest sporting event and Australia is a prime candidate to fill the breach. O’Neill, who steps down as CEO of Football Federation Australia in March, said yesterday he would consider a return if the World Cup rights were put up for bids. "I wouldn’t exclude it," he said. "I’ve had that conversation with (FFA chairman) Frank Lowy and expressed interest in being involved with the bid and the hosting of the event. "He said he would like me to be involved if the opportunity arrives. "
German legend Franz Beckenbauer, president of the the 2006 World Cup organising committee, is the latest respected authority to cast doubts over South Africa’s ability to host the event… "I’ve had that conversation with (FFA chairman) Frank Lowy and expressed interest in being involved with the bid and the hosting of the event.

German legend Franz Beckenbauer, president of the the 2006 World Cup organising committee, is the latest respected authority to cast doubts over South Africa’s ability to host the event. "The organisation for the World Cup in South Africa is beset by big problems," he said this week. "But these are not South African problems, these are African problems. People are working against rather than with each other. "
Beckenbauer was referring to the feeling within international football circles that preparations for the event were being hamstrung by racial divisions, with soccer in South Africa played predominantly by the black majority.

Local advertisers assured of Sunset Legislation benefits
Jamaica Observer – Sep 20, 2006
Speaking at the CLICO Hospitality Suite at the Queen’s Park Oval, Derek Jones, Cricket World Cup 2007’s senior legal counsel, said, “while such laws are new to this part of the world, they are the norm for any nation which is hosting a world games. ”
“Sunset Legislation is a vital and necessary component of hosting such events. Germany saw the benefit of such laws and there have been some highly-publicised incidents in relation to Sunset Legislation and the football World Cup,” he stated, adding that similar legislation has already been passed for the 2012 London Olympics. The Sunset Legislation, currently before Caribbean parliaments, deals with the issue of ambush marketing during next year’s Cricket World Cup and will be added to the statue books for a limited period of time to accommodate the event. Jones pointed out that FIFA’s determination to protect its sponsors’ rights as well as its intellectual property saw the world-governing body for football pursuing “more than 1 200 cases in 65 countries in connection with the 2006 FIFA World Cup trademark” even before the tournament began. “This is the kind of action which could be taken against those who seek to commit infringements against the Cricket World Cup,” Jones contended. “Sunset Legislation gives tournament authorities the legal teeth to deal with such issues.

Germany retain hockey title
Namibian – Sep 19, 2006
In winning on home soil, Germany succeeded where their soccer compatriots had failed and the 12 000-strong crowd in the Warsteiner Hockey Park were able to relive some of the excitement generated during this summer’s football World Cup. Germany trainer Bernhard Peters, in his last match in charge before starting a job with a regional German football team, said he had been sceptical even up to a few weeks before the tournament whether such a young team could triumph. Roared on by the boisterous crowd, Germany began the final strongly and took the lead in the 18th minute when powerful forward Christopher Zeller burst into the circle and sent a deflected shot low into the goal. Australia hit back almost immediately, with Germany’s semi-final penalty hero Ulrich Bubolz unable to keep out a powerful strike from Mark Knowles at a penalty corner. Less than 10 minutes later the Kookaburras were ahead after Matthew Naylor fired the ball high into the net past Bubolz from another short corner… Australia hit back almost immediately, with Germany’s semi-final penalty hero Ulrich Bubolz unable to keep out a powerful strike from Mark Knowles at a penalty corner. Less than 10 minutes later the Kookaburras were ahead after Matthew Naylor fired the ball high into the net past Bubolz from another short corner. Australia, who won their only World Cup in 1986 in London, extended their lead at the start of the second period when Troy Elder scored after a break down the left. But Germany forced their way back into the match with two quick goals. Five minutes later Germany retook the lead. Strong running from the superb Zeller took him into the circle and he cleverly slipped the ball underneath Mowlam to send the partisan local supporters wild. Australia pressed for an equaliser, with Luke Doerner firing against a post in the 66th minute, but Germany held firm.

LONDON (Reuters):
Former captain David Beckham said yesterday he was left angry and disappointed at being ruled out of the England squad by new coach Steve McClaren.

Tis season to be silly
NEWS.com.au – Sep 20, 2006
That’s the only plausible explanation I can offer for the conviction that Australian sport’s renowned silly season appears to have arrived at least a couple of weeks early this year. You all know the silly season. It’s the few weeks in early October – between the end of football and the start of cricket – when all sorts of weird, whacky stories, rumours and theories find their way into the media to make up for the fact nothing real is actually happening. Stories about which football players, coaches and officials are set to be traded, sacked or retained. And which horses are supposedly the real deal for the Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup. Rumours about club infighting, rule changes and the customary high jinks on end-of-season trips. Theories about which ageing Australian cricketers should be given the green light to bluff their way through another season and those whom the selectors have secretly consigned to the scrapheap… THE AFL threatens zero tolerance of even accidental head-high contact from next season. This from the league whose review panel blithely ruled Collingwood’s Alan Didak didn’t have a case to answer after Carlton’s Heath Scotland was knocked out cold in round 21. QUESTION: What, in recent times, has become world television’s third highest-rating international sports competition, behind only football’s World Cup and the Olympic games?
ANSWER: Golf’s Ryder Cup, the bi-annual, trans-Atlantic teams confrontation between the United States of America and Europe. Which is why Fox Sports, despite a crammed September schedule, has deployed its Main Events channel from tomorrow night to ensure every crucial shot over the 2006 Cup’s three absorbing days can be seen free of extra charge by Australian viewers. Live Cup coverage will start on Main Event at 5pm on Friday and Sunday then switch to Fox Two when the Malaysian Tri-Series cricket encounters end around 12. Saturday’s live telecast will be shown entirely on Fox Two.
