Now that the group stage of the inaugural Kia Super League is almost over, with finals day just around the corner, its a good time to look back and assess what we have learned from this exciting new competition. Here are my initial thoughts.1. Tell them about it and they will come Two weeks ago nobody - even, if they are honest, those running it at the ECB - quite knew what to expect from the Super League. It was notoriously difficult to get anyone to say exactly what success for this new competition would look like. Now? Well, lets just say Im pretty sure that Clare Connor, the ECBs director for womens cricket, is sleeping at night again.At the time of writing, there has been an average attendance of over 1000 at the group games so far, and the matches at the Ageas Bowl and The Oval have attracted over 2000 spectators apiece. As someone who is used to turning up to watch womens county games with next to no spectators bar the friends and family of the players, let me tell you, that is absolutely phenomenal.Heres the thing: if you market it right, create a buzz around the teams, and, most importantly, tell people it is happening, people will pay to attend domestic womens cricket in their thousands.2. Different franchise models work in different places The crowds we have seen at the KSL group matches are even more impressive when you consider that, unlike with the Womens Big Bash League, the KSL hosts were starting from scratch, unable to tap into an existing franchise fan base. There were quite a lot of voices prior to this competition questioning the decision by the ECB to take what was actually quite a risk in pushing ahead with a standalone womens competition.What we have seen over the past couple of weeks, though, has fully vindicated that decision. No, these havent been double-header games, but people have still shown up in droves. No, these sides arent attached to mens teams, but kids (and girls, especially) have still turned up wearing their teams colours and gone home with their heroes autographs. Not only is that an incredible achievement, it gives womens cricket something new and different, and the opportunity to forge its own way ahead. I for one am excited to see where that path might lead.Actually theres a good argument that playing copycat to the WBBL wasnt just impractical, given the foot-dragging that takes place every time franchise cricket is suggested within the English mens game, but that it wouldnt have worked anyway. Different contexts require a different approach. In fact, at a time when there are big question marks over the future of the mens T20 competition, this should tell the ECB something important about franchise cricket more generally.3. There is plenty of talent out there Those of us who actually watched womens county cricket prior to the start of the Super League were already well aware of this, but it has been incredible to see players who I am more used to seeing playing in front of 20 people at tiny club grounds launched onto the big stage, with the eyes of the media fully upon them, and flourishing.Whether it be Hampshires Katie George, more used to playing in Division Two county cricket, looking right at home in Vipers world-class bowling attack; or Sussexs Paige Scholfield, coming in to bat at No. 9 for Lightning and ending up top-scoring for her side with one of the highest strike rates in the competition; or Lancashires Emma Lamb, only 18, the most consistent opener in any team in the competition; or Berkshire left-armer Linsey Smith, called up to the competition due to injury but stacking up the most successful and the most economical spell in the entire competition so far - it has all been so wonderful to see. Its pretty clear that we dont really need to worry about whether the current county system is producing any talent.One aspect of the system that should still be a concern is the fact that only 19 players in the whole of English womens cricket are being paid to play cricket at any time other than the two-week KSL window. If we dont want to see incredibly talented young players like George, Lamb and Smith walking away from the game prematurely, some kind of progressive pay scale is needed - and fast. 4. Dont rely on your overseas players One of the unforeseen elements of this competition has been the fact that many of the big-name overseas superstars have failed to perform. Ellyse Perry, for example, started the competition with scores of 17 and 2, as well as conceding 39 runs off her four overs in Lightnings first home game of the tournament. Hayley Matthews, star of the Womens World T20 final earlier this year, has hit 7, 11, 0 and 0 in Thunders four group matches to date. Meanwhile Diamonds two overseas batsmen - Alex Blackwell and Beth Mooney - have almost totally failed with the bat, with scores of 3, 23 and 6, and 0, 9 and 17 respectively. It turns out that adjusting to English conditions when youre flown in just a few days before a two-week tournament in the middle of your off season is actually quite tricky.5. You dont need silly boundaries At international level the regulations for boundary sizes in womens cricket differ from those in the mens game - a minimum of 50 metres compared to the mens 60 metres. The KSL playing regulations, in case you havent read them, take this one step further and actually allow for 45-metre boundaries. This, of course, panders to the school of thought that womens T20 cricket is as dull as ditchwater unless there are sixes being hit every other ball.In fact, so far in the KSL, I dont think Ive seen a single boundary that is 45 metres. Most have been 50 or 55 metres. Weve also only had 37 sixes in the competition. And guess what? People still turned up to watch. And most of the cricket has still been utterly enthralling. Lets learn from that and ditch the 45-metre boundary rule for good.6. It should be on TV Rumour has it that fears about the potential quality of the competition led to a reluctance to allow Sky to broadcast any of the inaugural Super League. If true, that is absolutely crazy and, given the quality of the cricket on show, a huge opportunity missed. If the ECB really wants to build a fan base for these teams, TV coverage must surely be top of the priority list for next years competition. Believe in your product and so will other people.Air Max 97 Pas Cher Chine . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J.

Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself.Reigning CFL Most Outstanding Player Chad Owens tops the 2013 edition of the TSN Top 50 CFL Players list. Already one of the most exciting special teams players in the CFL, Owens expanded his offensive repertoire in 2012 and led the league with 1,328 receiving yards. The Argonauts speedster affectionately known as the Flyin Hawaiian set a CFL record with 3,863 all-purpose yards surpassing the mark set by former Argos great Mike Pinball Clemons in 1990. Owens capped his tremendous season by helping the Argonauts win the 100th Grey Cup. Owens grabs the top spot in this years list with 1004 points despite earning just five first place nods from the 23 voters. He was 12th last year. Last years No. 1 Travis Lulay actually tied for the most first place votes again this year with eight but finished second to Owens with 953 total points. Lulay led the B.C. Lions to a CFL best 13-5 record in the regular season in 2012, throwing for 4,231 yards and 27 touchdowns with just 10 interceptions. Following Lulay on the list are two more quarterbacks in Ricky Ray and Anthony Calvillo. Ray took the third spot with 923 points and matching Lulay with eight first place nods. In his first season in Toronto, Ray passed for 4,069 yards with 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also helped lead the Argonauts to victory in the 100th Grey Cup throwing for 231 yards two touchdown passes in the win. The ageless Calvillo meanwhile, received the final two first place votes and 820 total points. The 40-year-old had yet another fantastic year in 2012 throwing for 5,082 yards and 31 touchdowns with 14 interceptions last season. Calgary Stampeders running back Jon Cornish is the first Canadian on the list checking in at five. Cornish led the CFL with 1,457 rushing yards last year, the most ever by a Canadian in a single season. The New Westminster, BC native added 338 yards receiving and notched 13 total touchdowns. Next on the list is Edmonton linebacker J.C. Sherritt, the first defensive player on the board and one of two players in this years top-10 who were unranked last season. The reigning Most Outstanding Defensive Player set a CFL record with 130 tackles last season. Following Sherritt is the 2012 Most Outstanding Special Teams Player, Chris Williams of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Williams set a CFL record with six return touchdowns in 2012 and led the league with 16 overall. Lions offensive lineman Jovan Olafioye, yet another 2012 award winner is the first big man on the list at number eight. Olafioye won the Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman award after anchoring a B.C. line that allowed the fewest sacks in the league at 30. Right behind Olafioye at nine is his Lions teammate Andrew Harris. Harris notched his first 1,000 yard rushing season for the Lions with 1,112 yards and sevenn touchdowns on the ground in 2012.dddddddddddd The Winnipeg native also collected 75 receptions for 718 yards and four more touchdowns through the air. Rounding out the top 10 is another Lion in linebacker Adam Bighill. In his second season in the CFL, Bighill racked up 104 defensive tackles to finish second in the CFL behind Sherritt. Like Sherritt, Bighill did not make the list last year. In all, 19 players were new to the list this year, including Sherritt and Bighill. The Alouettes had the most players of any team to make the Top 50 with 10, followed by the Lions with nine and the Stampeders with seven. The list was compiled from votes by a group of 23 experts which included TSN commentators and analysts and several league writers from across Canada. The Full List. CLICK HERE for a detailed list. 1.

From the list of players, they had to follow these guidelines: - One quarterback or more, two running backs or more, four receivers or more, five offensive linemen or more, three linebackers or more, four defensive linemen or more and five defensive backs or more. - The player had to be playing in the CFL this season. From their list of 40 players, we gave a point ranking from each placing that went as followed: 1st - 50 points2nd - 45 points3rd - 40 points4th - 38 points5th - 36 points6th - 35 points 7th-40th - 34 points for 7th working down by a point to 1 point for 40th place. From there, all the names and points were compiled and the Top 50 point-getters became our Top 50 players in the CFL. ' ' '
