Defending champion Stuart Bingham has been knocked out of the World Championship in the first round, falling to the Crucible Curse after going down 10-9 to qualifier Ali Carter in a gripping encounter. No first-time winner has ever successfully held onto their crown in Sheffield and Bingham fell at the first hurdle, albeit to a player who has twice finished runner-up in the tournament.Sixteen previous first-time world champions had tried and failed to retain the title 12 months on from their maiden triumphs, and Bingham now joins the illustrious list. Having trailed 8-5, the world No 2 claimed four frames in a row to lead 9-8, hitting the front with a 113 break.But Carter came back at him, first when making 102 to level and force the decider and then when edging over the line after both men saw match-winning opportunities slip away.Bingham missed two pinks to the middle that were to prove costly, and then a tough final red when the frame hung in the balance.Carter cut it in and added the pink to effectively end Binghams hopes.A superb yellow followed, and the man who has twice survived cancer in recent years was soon able to celebrate one of his finest victories.During his glory run last year, Bingham saw off Ronnie OSullivan, Judd Trump and Shaun Murphy in successive matches to take the title, each time as the underdog. Ali Carter claimed the deciding final in a thriller with Bingham This time the roles were different, with Bingham the favourite despite his opponents previous Crucible successes.Carter said he would be fresh as a daisy, despite having to contest three best-of-19-frame qualifying matches, the most recent on Wednesday, when he saw off Dominic Dale.But neither he nor Bingham were close to daisy-fresh when at 11.25pm, the handshake came.Im gutted to be going back home, said Bingham.I battled to 9-8 and missed a couple of chances to wrap the game up. Fair play to Ali. It just wasnt meant to be for me.It was a tough draw and I just came up short. I hope he goes on to win it now.

Which is to say, the top of this years draft class is not as dynamic or exciting as the 2013 class of Nate MacKinnon, Sasha Barkov, Jonathan Drouin and Seth Jones and its not as strikingly promising as the highly-anticipated 2015 slate of Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Noah Hanifin. http://www.brownsauthenticproshop.com/Youth-Zane-Gonzalez-Jersey/. The Leafs were back on the ice Wednesday following an 10-day break. It apparently wasnt long enough, as Team Canadas 2-1 win over Latvia didnt conclude before the Leafs began practice. "I was thinking we might get a little delay, but it was nice to get out there," said Tyler Bozak of watching Wednesdays game. Kenny Britt Jersey . Third-place Madrid fell behind and settled for a 2-2 draw earlier at Osasuna in a match both sides finished with 10 men, and Barcelona didnt let the chance escape. Barcelona, still without the injured Lionel Messi, again turned to Neymar after his hat trick against Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday to convert a penalty on the half-hour mark and restore the lead in the 68th after Villarreal levelled. Trevon Coley Jersey .C. -- The shot that would have beaten No. TORONTO -- Signs of a rift between Toronto FC manager Ryan Nelsen and GM Tim Bezbatchenko emerged Saturday, further complicating the landscape for an MLS team that is already losing its champion with the planned departure of MLSE CEO Tim Leiweke. In a moment of rare theatre at the post-game news conference, Nelsen tore a strip off Bezbatchenko in the wake of a lopsided 3-0 loss to the New England Revolution. The dressing down came when Nelsen was asked if Bezbatchenkos public challenge to his team on the eve of the game "to take it up a notch" had helped matters. "Not at all," said Nelsen. "Absolutely not." Nelsen then went on to accuse Bezbatchenko of effectively sabotaging his own team by unnecessarily raising the stakes before a match that was not crucial, given there were 10 more remaining after it. "Ive won this league, played in it for four years, been in the (English) Premier League for 10 years, played in a World Cup, Olympics. Ive played in some pretty hot pressure games," said Nelsen, a former New Zealand international defender. "One thing that I do know is this was not one of them." "It affected the guys," he said of Bezbatchenkos words. "What we do at Toronto FC is we keep it in-house -- everything we do, we keep inside the four walls. And the players, coaching staff, everything, stays within the four walls." Bezbatchenko, a 32-year-old rookie GM hired out of the league office by Leiweke last September, summoned local beat reporters Friday with a clear message. The revamped MLS team has had time to gel, he said. Now it has to fire on all cylinders. "I think everyone would agree -- the coaches, the players -- that over the last 12 or so games, it hasnt been good enough, at least for making a run in MLS," Bezbatchenko said. He also said his message to the fans and the club was: "The time is now ... Its we mean business now." Nelsen, who was unaware of Bezbatchenkos planned comments, said they had left his players "very very lets just say aggravated." Toronto (9-9-6) gave up a goal within two minutes and was serenaded by boos from the crowd of 22,591 en route to the dressing room down 2-0 at halftime. "I think we kind of felt a wee bit sorry for ourselves. Players mentally werent right from the start," said Nelsen, in another apparent shot at his GM. "And in a way I cant blame them," he added. The 36-year-old Nelsen, in his second year at the Toronto FC helm, said pressure is a constant for all Toronto teams. So why add to it? "Players are affected. Thats why we want to keep everything in-house," he said in another broadside at Bezbatchenko. Nelsen also pointed the finger at himself, saying his team has to be better than it was on the day and that any criticism should be levelled at him. But he clearly saw Bezbatchenkos comments Friday as meddlesome and needlessly ratcheting up the pressure "Were used to getting it from the outside," he added. "Thats why it should never come from inside. Never." Bezbatchenkos pre-game message did not spark much reaction from a largely empty and hushed Toronto dressing room. Midfielder Michael Bradley, serving a captain in Caldwells absence, essentially said it was not up to players to get involved. Next up is an away-and-home series with the Philadelphia Union, another Eastern Conference team chasing the playoffs. Going into Saturdays game, Toronto was 3-4-4 since the start of July, meaning it has dropped 20 of a possible 33 points over that stretch. But the team was also 2-1-1 in August, standing third in the Eastern Conference and had been dealing with a rash of injuries -- especially on the backline. And a win Saturday would have matched Toronttos franchise high for season wins (10) with 10 games to go.dddddddddddd Nelsen said players and coaches are "more than confident in what were going to do. Weve got 10 more games ... Its in our hands. "Well stick with the players. Weve always got their backs." He made no mention of the front office. Toronto was without star striker Jermain Defoe (groin), midfielder-defender Warren Creavalle (hamstring) and defenders Steven Caldwell (quad) and Justin Morrow (hamstring). Fullback Mark Bloom flew back to town Friday after attending the birth of his daughter. New England Revolution punished that makeshift defence Saturday, snapping a five-game losing streak on the road with a lopsided 3-0 win. Lee Nguyen and Kelyn Rowe scored in the first half for New England, both profiting from sloppy Toronto turnovers. Teal Bunbury, son of former Canadian international Alex Bunbury, added to the home supporters pain in the second. Newly signed designated player Jermaine Jones came off the bench in the 65th minute for New England. The U.S. international slotted into central midfield, easing himself into MLS with his team comfortably ahead. "Jermaine has been really good all week and for us it is all about fitness," said New England coach Jay Heaps. "Jermaine has been excellent with our group and we wanted to get him in there and fit him in like a training session." The home side did all but mark a path with orange cones to keeper Joe Bendik on both first-half goals, giving the ball away and putting up minimal resistance. Injuries to key players did not help the Toronto cause but still it was one of TFCs worst showings of the season. In contrast to Toronto, which was booed off the field after the final whistle, New England looked composed and well-organized. The Revolution had not won away from home since a May 17 victory in Philadelphia. But Toronto has been good to them of late. They are unbeaten in their last five visits (2-0-3) to BMO Field. Toronto, meanwhile, has not won at home since July 12 -- an 0-2-2 stretch. The result allowed New England (10-12-3) to pull into a tie with Toronto albeit with a better goal differential. New England, which defeated Chivas USA 1-0 last time out, has gone 3-1-1 since snapping an eight-game losing streak. The patchwork backline of Bloom, Bradley Orr, Doneil Henry and Nick Hagglund was breached less than 90 seconds in as Nguyen pounced on a bad pass from Bloom that Michael Bradley was unable to corral in midfield. Nguyen drove unimpeded towards the Toronto goal before beating Bendik with a low shot to the corner from some five yards outside the penalty box. It was the 10th goal of the season for the Revs midfielder, who tallied nine in total over the previous two seasons. New Englands quickest goal of the 2014 campaign also came one year to the day that the Revs scored in the second minute of a 2013 visit to BMO Field. "Lee has been excellent for us all year," said Heaps. "The harder he works and the more plays he breaks up, it gives him the freedom to attack. When he (Nguyen) is at his best he is receiving the ball off of turnovers in between their defence and midfield." For a Toronto team that gave up a goal in stoppage time to the visiting Chicago Fire last time out (a 2-2 tie), the goal was the worst possible start. And things went from bad to worse. Rowe made it 2-0 in the 21st minute after vacuuming up an errant pass by Orr and easily sidestepping an attempted Bradley tackle. The goal was virtually a replay of the first, albeit from further out, with Rowe hammering a shot into the corner past Bendik. Bunbury upped the lead to 3-0 in the 58th minute as Revolution players queued up for a tap-in on the right side as the defence folded once again.
