MCLEAN, Va. TreDavious White Jersey . -- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is making no secret of his desire to lure the Washington Redskins to his state with the promise of a new stadium.At the Redskins annual preseason luncheon Wednesday, McAuliffe made a public, passionate case to owner Dan Snyder, boasting about Virginias economy and connection to the military. McAuliffe said that 66 percent of season-ticket holders live in Virginia, which also has a substantial military population.I want to thank the Redskins for being such a great economic driver, McAuliffe said. We have your headquarters. We have your training facility. What else could there possibly be? Let me say this, Dan: Think about Virginia.McAuliffe previously said during an appearance on Snyder-owned radio station ESPN 980 that Virginia and the Redskins were in very serious negotiations on a stadium deal. The teams current lease at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, expires in 2026.Virginia has been lobbying for a stadium dating to 2013 when Bob McDonnell was governor. If it were to happen, it would likely be built in Loudoun County, home of Dulles International Airport, where the Redskins have their practice facility and where a majority of players live.During a radio appearance on news radio station WTOP Wednesday morning, McAullife said any deal would have to make sense for Virginia taxpayers and added that he would give the Redskins the time and respect that a major state employer deserves.At the Redskins luncheon, he trumpeted Virginias military might, saying that the state has 800,000 veterans or active duty personnel -- more than the total population in some locations. That was a gentle jab at Washington city councilmember Jack Evans, who was in attendance.The largest naval base in the world, 27 military installations, the Pentagon -- we have it all, folks, McAuliffe said. So Dan, if youre thinking because you love our military, what a better way to honor our military, our veterans and active duty, than make an easy commute for them to go see a game with the Redskins.Cornerback DeAngelo Hall, a Chesapeake, Virginia, native who played college football at Virginia Tech, has a connection to Richmond -- his aunt, Louise Lucas, a state senator. Asked about bringing the Redskins stadium to Virginia, Hall said: Weve been trying. Well see.In his address to the crowd of 600 plus 27 active players and 24 alumni, Snyder did not respond to McAuliffes stadium sales job.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Cordy Glenn Jersey . Scott won the Australian PGA last week in his first event in Australia since winning the U.S. Masters in April. American Matt Kuchar, ahead by two strokes with four to play and even with Scott with one to go, double-bogeyed the 18th after taking two shots to get out of a bunker. Shareece Wright Jersey . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. http:///...shington-jersey.html . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles sideline was fuming after a brutal hit by Washington Redskins safety Deshazor Everett on a defenseless Darren Sproles early in the fourth quarter on Sunday, and plenty of players were still simmering in the locker room afterward.Obvious cheap shot. Darren was trying to field the ball, the guy hits him before the ball gets there, said tight end Zach Ertz. Ive honestly never seen the guy before, didnt know who he was going into the game, and if thats how he wants to make a name for himself, then so be it.I thought it was B.S. Darren didnt even have the ball, and the guy tried to take his head off. He tried to take Brent [Celek]s head off, kind of knocked him out of the game, too. I dont know who that guy is, but yeah, I thought it was B.S.With just under 12 minutes remaining, Sproles sprinted forward to field a Washington punt. While tracking the ball, Everett crashed into Sproles, who took the blow primarily to the head and was shot backward, hitting the turf hard. He then left the game to be evaluated for a head injury.The scuffle that followed was eventually broken up by the refs. Tackle Jason Peters, who famously drilled Washington defensive lineman Chris Baker after his vicious hit on quarterback Nicck Foles in 2014, decided he could not afford to be ejected this time around. Stephen Hauschka Jersey. I was just thinking: Im about to get this guy. That was a cheap shot, said Peters, who led an Eagles pack that swarmed to Sproles defense.I wanted to get him. I was going to get him. But I dont have a backup right now. I just couldnt get thrown out of the game, and I just had to step back and let the referees handle it. But I wanted to get him.Everett contended that it wasnt an intentionally dirty hit.Football is a split-second game, and unfortunately I did not make the right decision, but I was just giving my full effort to go out there and make a tackle, he said.My condolences to him, and you never wish that to happen to anyone.Sproles, 33, ranks eighth in NFL history in all-purpose yards. Weighing in at 5-foot-6, 190 pounds, he has earned respect league-wide for his work ethic and accomplishments over 11 seasons.Thats a possible Hall-of-Famer. Dudes got respect from people all around the league, said linebacker Mychal Kendricks. And I dont know who 22 is, but hopefully he has the same amount of respect for him. Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Discount NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
