*Asks sports minister to call Giwa to orderBy Duro IkhazuagbeFormer President of West Africa Football Union (WAFU), Jonathan Ogufere, has called on the Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung to save Nigeria football from Chris Giwa and his group who are determined to earn the country suspension from FIFA.Speaking at the weekend, Ogufere who is also the chairman of Sports Veterans Association, an umbrella body for past sportsmen and administrators, noted with dismay that the Jos-based club proprietor has continued unabated in his determination to be the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) irrespective of whether his ambition could earn Nigeria a long-term suspension by FIFA.“The minister of sports (Dalung) cannot afford to keep quiet. He needs to restore peace. We are totally dismayed that after an issue has gone to the highest court in sports (Court of Arbitration for Sports) and has been settled, some people are still using it to destabilise Nigerian football,” observed the respected former WAFU boss.Ogufere recalled that Nigeria barely escaped FIFA ban when this crisis started two years ago.“Nigeria barely escaped a FIFA ban the last time this issue came up. We should not portray ourselves like a nation that is not ready to abide by international rules. For the goodness of our youths and our football this issue should be nipped in the bud immediately.“I am not just speaking as an individual. This is the way, we the Veterans in Nigerian sports feel. We’ve been watching and cannot continue to keep quiet. We are not happy with what is going on in Nigerian football. Those heating up the football scene in the country should realise the damage their action is creating for Nigeria.”He urged those hell-bent in taking over the administration of the NFF to wait for Amaju Pinnick’s four-year tenure to end. “To be president and board members of NFF is not a matter of life and death. Whosoever that is aspiring to get to the NFF should wait till after the four years of the current board.“It is about time this issue is settled once and for all. If you lose an election you keep calm and wait for another time. It shouldn’t be a do or die affair or matter of life and death. It is unnecessarily disturbing the sporting atmosphere in Nigeria. Going to regular court runs foul of FIFA rules. Nobody forced us to join FIFA and once we are there we must abide by the rules. Nobody is saying FIFA laws are superior to that of Nigeria. We are not talking about superiority now but respecting ourselves as a member of the international football community,” stressed Ogufere.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Switch perspectives to this year’s Clippers. Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have been injured for large chunks of time and the Clippers have fallen to fifth in the Western Conference. As with those Celtics, the Clippers rarely practice, instead focusing on rest and recovery.“The way I am working now is that way,” Rivers said. ‘OK well, can’t get that, let’s get right.’ I think that’s important for us.”Rivers has spoken in recent days about finding games from their remaining regular-season schedule when key players can rest before the playoffs.The Clippers entered Tuesday 1-1/2 games back of Utah for the fourth seed, and 2-1/2 games ahead of sixth-place Memphis. Oklahoma City was just three games back of the Clippers. Their seeding could dramatically shape the Clippers’ playoff destiny. Fourth or fifth would likely mean a matchup with the Jazz, whom L.A. has dispatched by 13 and 16 points in two games this season.Sixth would almost certainly mean a series against the Houston Rockets, who have blown out the Clippers twice.There are differences between those Celtics and this year’s Clippers, however.“The biggest one,” Rivers said, “is that I don’t have a championship with this group, where you can have that confidence” to ignore seeding.The Clippers have never advanced beyond the second round.Twin winsAfter starting the post-All Star break portion of their schedule 1-4, with blowout losses to the Golden State Warriors, Rockets and, um, Milwaukee Bucks, the Clippers might have shed whatever was plaguing them.They overcame second-half deficits to win in Chicago and dispatch Boston, relying on defense that improved as each game wore on and the score-in-bunches heroics of sixth man Jamal Crawford.“We’re getting better,” point guard Chris Paul said. “We’ve still got a ways to go. Just because you win doesn’t mean everything is solved defensively, anything like that. Obviously, like I always say, it’s good to win and figure it out at the same time but we’ve still got a ways to go.”The Clippers play Wednesday in Minnesota and a night later in Memphis.Despite winning both Saturday and Monday, the Clippers were slow out of the gates in both, and seemed to ignore the defensive game-plan before falling into deep deficits.Rivers doesn’t much mind the sluggishness.“I don’t really care, honestly, as long as we win the game,” he said. “It’s good to be able to get out of the way of yourself and be able to win games.” LOS ANGELES – With the Boston Celtics in town this week, Doc Rivers had the opportunity to reflect on his tenure with the team he guided to a pair of NBA Finals.It’s in the second Celtics team Rivers coached to the Finals, in 2010, that he sees some comparisons to his current Clippers team. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Boston was beset by injuries that season. Paul Pierce missed 11 games, Kevin Garnett was out for 13. Key role players Tony Allen and Glen Davis each missed 28 games. It knocked the Celtics out of the top spot in the Eastern Conference, and midway through the season, Rivers made a decision to worry less about chasing a playoff seed and more about getting his team healthy for the playoffs.“We talked to the team about it a month before the end of the season,” Rivers said Monday, prior to the Clippers’ 116-102 win over Boston at Staples Center. “Which I’ve never done, anything like that. ‘Hey guys, let’s not worry about the games let’s worry about getting right for the playoffs.’ ”The Celtics earned the fourth seed that year and handled Miami, LeBron James-led Cleveland and Orlando in the first three rounds of the playoffs to reach the NBA Finals against the Lakers.
