Video: Football fans continue to show disgust at prices

first_img1 .@BVB fans halt the first half at @VfB by throwing tennis balls onto the pitch to protest at ticket prices. https://t.co/wocu1FhBgW— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) February 10, 2016 Borussia Dortmund fans boycotted the first 20 minutes center_img In protest at ticket price rises, Borussia Dortmund threw tennis balls onto the pitch in the club’s match against Stuttgart.A section also refused to turn up for the first 20 minutes of the German Cup game, which must have looked strange considering the vocal, colourful and passionate support usually given to their team whether they win, lose or draw.The Dortmund fans were angry about Stuttgart charging them €19.50 (£15.23) for standing tickets and €38.50 (£30.07) for the cheapest seats, while a quarter were being charged more than €70 (£54) as explained by campaign group Kein Zwanni.The group also showed their support for Liverpool’s walkout at Anfield against Sunderland on their Facebook page.The tennis balls also served a dual purpose, with Dortmund fan and Kein Zwanni member Marc Quambusch explaining the German – ‘great tennis’ – is used to describe something very good.“This was an ironic way to say your ticket prices are very good,” he said.“Also we want to say we don’t want to have a tennis audience in football stadiums. Nothing against tennis – great sport – but we don’t want a tennis atmosphere in football stadiums.”last_img read more

‘He signed a contract then left for money. What’s he done since?’

first_img Fabian Delph playing for Man City at Villa Park Each week, a leading musician takes our Starting XI Q&A. This week, it’s Primal Scream’s Martin Duffy…1) Who would be the most rock ‘n’ roll signing your club could make?In a rock’n’roll universe… Bring back Robin Friday – he just didn’t care, just like George Best. He’d be up half the night, then turn up and play a corker. 2) If your club was a song or a lyric, what would it be? ‘Down Down’ by Status Quo, because I can’t see any escape for the Villa right now!3) Which football stadium would you most like to play a gig at (that’s not your club’s home ground)? Nou Camp – it’s an amazing stadium, brilliant atmosphere, everything about it. It doesn’t get much better than that. And easy to get a private jet home from.4) Which footballer has the most potential to be a rock star? Mario Balotelli – he’s bonkers. You never know what you’re going to get with him.5) Brit award or Premier League trophy?I’d take Premier League survival, then the Premier League trophy over the Brits.6) When you were a kid, which football and music posters did you have on your wall? Two blondes… Gary Shaw and Debbie Harry. Gary Shaw was a brilliant player [for Villa] and she was the best around at that time.7) Elvis was the king of rock ‘n’ roll, Michael Jackson the king of pop… Who’s the king of football? In the past George Best….Faultless. He could do anything. The miracle man… had the lot. Now, Lionel Messi. It’s amazing that someone that good has managed to keep coming up with the goods. He’s not an egotist. He’s just brilliant.8) If you were in charge of Villa’s dressing room stereo, what tunes would you put on before a big game and why?Black Sabbath’s ‘War Pigs’. They’re local lads and it’s a get up and go track. I think they’re all Villa boys, all born in Aston. It’s a ‘get out there and face the opposition’ track.9) Which signing got you most excited and which player’s departure broke your heart?Recently, both Benteke. He saved our bacon for two seasons. 10) Which footballer would you refuse complimentary tickets to one of your gigs? Fabian Delph. He just signed a contract and then he left for the money. What’s he done this season since?11) What’s the best/worst football song ever recorded? Best: Aston Villa FC’s ‘We’re Going Up’ – reggae –ish. Good song. The Villains go reggae in 1975. Worst: Too many bad tracks to mention!Our Football Song: We did a football song with Irvine Welsh for Scotland 1996 – an alternative football song. Check it out.Primal Scream release their 11th studio album, ‘Chaosmosis’ on March 18. See www.primalscream.net 2center_img 2last_img read more

3 locals reject Chrysler proposal

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Members at locals in Missouri, Ohio and Delaware voted against the deal Friday and Saturday even as union leaders from Detroit spent the later part of the week lobbying for yes votes. The contract failed Saturday at Local 110 in Fenton, Mo., one of Chrysler’s largest, with 2,781 hourly workers at the South Assembly Plant. The vote was surprising because the plant makes Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Caravan minivans, which are brand new for 2008 and expected to be top sellers, providing job security for several years. A recording at the Local 110 union hall said Saturday that 66percent of skilled trades workers voted against the contract, while 79 percent of non-skilled workers opposed it. It didn’t give the number of workers that voted. The size and locations of the locals voting no are not good signs for leaders in Detroit, said Harley Shaiken, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley who specializes in labor issues. WORKERS: Union’s latest votes cast doubt on whether a contract deal will be accepted. By Tom Krisher THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DETROIT – Workers at three more United Auto Workers locals have rejected a tentative contract agreement between the union and Chrysler LLC, casting doubt on whether the deal will be ratified. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘Prison Break’ cast member Garrison to be sentenced in fatal DUI crash

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Garrison had a blood-alcohol content of .20 — more than twice the legal limit — and was under the influence of cocaine at the time of the crash, according to police. Superior Court Judge Elden Fox ordered Garrison on Aug. 2 to spend the next 90 days in a state prison facility to undergo a psychological evaluation. On “Prison Break,” Garrison played the character Tweener, who was killed off in the Oct. 2, 2006 episode of the Fox drama series. The Dallas native’s other credits include the 2006 film “Crazy” and an episode of the short-lived 2005 ABC series “Night Stalker.” Garrison was also part of the cast of the film, “Shooter,” released this year. Setian’s parents have formed the Vahagn Setian Charitable Foundation to “ensure that his passion for music, the arts, laughter and human joy will continue to flourish in the community he loved so dearly,” according to the mission statement posted on its Web site, www.vahagnfoundation.org The foundation, which is behind the petition drive aimed at ensuring Garrison’s lengthy incarceration, will award scholarships and other assistance to art students in the Beverly Hills Unified School District. It says it will also “constantly remind students to be aware of the danger of riding with anyone they suspect of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, especially someone they do not know.” For the latest news and observations on crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BEVERLY HILLS – Petitions bearing more than 3,400 signatures are set to be delivered to Beverly Hills Superior Court today in an attempt to persuade a judge to give former “Prison Break” cast member Lane Garrison the maximum sentence for an alcohol-related crash that killed a Beverly Hills High School student. Garrison is scheduled to be sentenced tomorrow in connection with his May 21 guilty plea to one felony count each of vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence and driving under the influence causing injury, along with one misdemeanor count of providing alcohol to a minor. He also admitted the allegation of having a blood-alcohol level of .15 or higher. Garrison, 27, is facing a maximum term of six years and eight months in prison. The charges stem from the death of 17-year-old Vahagn Setian, who was a passenger in the 2001 Land Rover Garrison was driving when it struck a tree in the 300 block of South Beverly Drive Dec. 2. Two other passengers — both 15- year-old girls — survived. last_img read more

Discovery a plus for Bush and anti-abortion allies

first_imgWASHINGTON – A breakthrough in stem-cell research could give President Bush and his anti-abortion allies a political I-told-you-so in a debate Democrats have long been planning to use in next year’s elections. Bush’s twin vetoes of bills to put taxpayer dollars behind embryonic stem-cell research, Democrats said, showed that he would let ideology block progress in finding cures to diseases that afflict millions of people. Bush insisted that medical advances could be made without destroying embryos. On Tuesday, two teams of scientists on different continents reported advances in research that might prove him right, giving his administration a dose of vindication in an otherwise grim last year of office. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsIn the journals Science and Cell, the scientists reported that they had coaxed regular human cells into mimicking the disease-fighting potential of embryonic stem cells – without destroying budding human life. Debate over, according to White House officials. “This is evidence … that we can get the good results we want from science without cutting corners on ethics,” said Karl Zinsmeister, Bush’s domestic-policy adviser. “Let’s not set up a false choice between, on the one hand, progress and, on the other hand, ethics.” Stem cells extracted from embryos a few days old can morph into any type of tissue and are widely considered to hold the greatest promise of treatments and cures for cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and other ailments. But extracting the stem cells destroys the embryo. Bush and his allies consider that crossing an ethical line that taxpayers should not be forced to finance. Proponents of the process say public money would only be used on embryos that would be discarded anyway under the vetoed legislation. And they say the scientific breakthroughs reported Tuesday change nothing about the debate. All types of stem-cell research should be promoted with federal funding, proponents say. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
