Warwickshire 398 for 6 (Hain 135, Ambrose 104, Trott 68) drew with Hampshire 531 (Wheater 204*, Ervine 75, Poysden 4-85)Scorecard A slow, flat pitch and a full day lost to rain were heavy factors against this match producing a positive result, much to the frustration of both sides for differing reasons, Warwickshire needing one to keep up with Middlesex and Lancashire in a breakaway group at the top of Division One, Hampshire to jump ahead of Surrey and Nottinghamshire at the other end. NMD Canada Sale .Yet it was a worthwhile exercise for Warwickshire in particular, who were able to watch the precociously talented Sam Hain emerge from a long run of frustratingly low scores in Championship cricket with his first century in almost a year, which he turned into his second highest score for the county.Ultimately holing out for 135 as Warwickshire tried - in vain, as it turned out - to claim a fifth batting point, Hain hit 16 fours and one six, the maximum - a pull backward of square off Gareth Berg - being the shot that took him to three figures.Hains first full season playing white-ball cricket has brought significant scores in both T20 and the 50-over game but as an illustration of the extent to which runs have eluded him until now in the four-day game, he accumulated more in this one innings than in his previous 11 this season.Afterwards, he described his struggle to rediscover his form as a new experience but one he had learned from.Ive never been in this situation before so to come out and get a few runs today is nice, he said. I couldnt really get my head round what was happening but I talked to some of the older boys to try to get a bit of help because it is quite tough when you are young and Ive learned a lot from it.When you are in a run of low scores you start to turn up wondering whether you will play or not. I thought I might have missed out this game, so Im grateful to Ian Bell and Dougie Brown for keeping faith in me.I dont think I have been as nervous before in red ball cricket and I still feel it a work in progress. There are a few technical things I need to work on but for me it has been more a mental thing and so Ive tried to get back to working on my processes rather than looking at the outcomes.Given that he has seven Championship hundreds to his name already - including a double - it is easy to lose sight of how young he is. He is not 21 until this Saturday.Warwickshire believe they have in Hain a future England player with a considerable career ahead him and director of cricket Brown reaffirmed his faith in him while admitting he was not far from being left out.We discussed how long you persevere with a young player with such exceptional talent and we were probably getting close to that point, he said.But everyone goes through it. (Ian) Bell and (Jonathan) Trott in our dressing room, Alastair Cook, Jacques Kallis - very fine players who have all gone through periods where they are short of form and confidenceThere was no doubt Sam was going to come good at some stage, the question was when and thankfully we have seen him play exceptionally well in this game. Conditions were in his favour and it might be more testing, say, at Headingley in a couple of weeks time.We strongly believe he has a bright future in the game and we wanted to give him that extended run. Now that he has got a really good hundred hopefully he kicks on from there.The other plus point from Warwickshires view point was a century from Tim Ambrose, his first of the season after three consecutive fifties, which reinforced Browns optimism about his sides title challenge.Yorkshire got away from everyone last year but no one has this time and we are in a good position, he said. The side that wins will be the one that produces the strong finish to the season and we have a lot of guys in pretty good touch and as a team we know we are playing well.Hampshires wicketkeeper, Lewis McManus, standing up to Gareth Berg, executed a smart stumping to remove Trott and the young legspinner, Mason Crane, made a good impression in conditions that did not particularly help him. He was rewarded when Ambrose and Hain holed out within the space of four balls during Warwickshires chase for batting points.Having been 312-4 after 100 overs, Warwickshire added 86 in the final 10 yet Crane kept his discipline well. Rikki Clarke lofted a six off Liam Dawson from the penultimate delivery before handshakes were exchanged after the 110th over was completed. Yeezy Powerphase Canada .

BOSTON -- Doctors who decide whether an NFL player is healthy enough to go into the game shouldnt be paid by the teams that have a stake in winning and losing -- an undeniable conflict of interest.Thats what a report released on Thursday by Harvard University experts in medicine, law and ethics says.The study by the NFL Players Association-funded Football Players Health Study also recommends a short-term injured reserve for athletes recovering from a concussion, much like the system that baseball adopted five years ago.The 500-page report includes 76 recommendations addressed to 20 NFL stakeholders -- everyone from players and teams to equipment manufacturers and government regulators. The biggest message: Player safety will never be the top priority as long as those involved have competing calls on their loyalty.So long as the club doctor is chosen, paid and reviewed by the club to both care for players and advise the club, the doctor will have, at a minimum, tacit pressures or subconscious desires to please the club by doing what is in the clubs best interests, the report said.This is not a moral judgment about them as competent professionals or devoted individuals, but rather a simple fact of the current organizational structure of their position in which they simultaneously perform at least two roles that are not necessarily compatible.Its a conclusion that was similar to that reached in an Associated Press survey of 100 players across the league last season. Asked if they thought the leagues clubs, coaches and team doctors have the athletes best interests at heart when it comes to health and safety, only 47 said yes.To resolve the conflict of interest, the report recommends that the league and the union contribute to a fund used to pay doctors assigned to teams.It should be common sense to avoid a conflict of interest between Teams and Doctors, former San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Anthony Davis, who retired -- for the second time -- at the age of 26 after repeated concussions, said on Twitter on Thursday.Although the study called the arrangement an undeniable conflict of interest, the league did in fact deny it.In a 33-page response , the NFL said it was disappointed that the report appeared to start with the premise that the health care system in the NFL suffers from an `inherent conflict of interest.The report ultimately promotes the untenable and impractical recommendation that NFL players receive care from `two distinct groups of medical professionals, the league wrote, saying that would have unintended but extremely detrimental effects on NFL players care. Nmd_r1 Shoes Canada. The NFL said the report fails to note any examples where a doctor put a teams interest ahead of the players, or establish any link between a doctors job security and player or team performance. The league said the collective bargaining agreement establishes that team doctors responsibility is to the player only, and that they are bound by the AMA and other professional codes of ethics.Players also have the right to seek a second opinion from a doctor of their own choosing, the league said.Tennessee Titans cornerback Jason McCourty said he has hasnt had a problem with the current system, but he liked the reports suggestions. As an eight-year veteran, he said, he is comfortable taking charge of his medical care, but a rookie might be intimidated.As players and grown men, as anyone (who) goes to a doctor, a doctor reports directly to you, he said. And I dont think it should be any different within a team.The NFL has already added layers of independent physicians to its concussion protocol, including unaffiliated athletic trainers and neurotrauma consultants on game day whose role is to spot players with possible concussions and, if necessary, stop play. The league says the role of these consultants is to support the team medical staffs in the diagnosis of in-game concussions.I dont really know how it works right now. I assume that third-party guy has enough pull to where if he thinks somebody is bad, hes out, said Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman David DeCastro, who went through the process against Dallas last week after he was slow to get up following a hit to the neck.After talking to the team doctor and the independent consultant, he was cleared to return and only missed one play.Obviously theres a conflict of interest (concern) with the team, and obviously getting rid of that is one thing. But for the most part I thought it was pretty fair and well done, DeCastro said. It was really good the way it kind of worked out.---AP Pro Football Writer Teresa M.
