Frustrated and dejected Central Coast coach Paul Okon believes an incorrect handball call allowed Brisbane to score the opening goal in Sundays 2-1 A-League loss. Cheap Pelicans Jerseys .Okon was quick to vent after Liam Rose was pinged for a first-half handball offence and the Roar subsequently awarded a free-kick that Dimi Petratos belted into the top corner of the net.The first-season coach, whos recently been outspoken about officiating standards, was seen speaking with referee Chris Beath at halftime and let out an exasperated chuckle when asked about the incident after the match.Im probably the worst person to ask because I dont understand the handball rule, Okon said.I keep getting consistently told that its down to the interpretation of the referee.The player says it hit him on the shoulder, that he never went with the arm.The referee says he made a movement with his arm.I dont recall a movement so from where Im sitting it doesnt look like a free-kick.But its still got to go in, and it was a great strike that was very difficult for the goalkeeper to get.The Mariners were rewarded for their mettle with Roy ODonovans second-half equaliser thanks to a top-class assist from Fabio Ferreira.But a clearly disappointed Okon admitted Thomas Broichs peach of a cross to set up Jamie Maclarens winner was simply too good for his ninth-placed side, whose grit he praised but whose front-third execution still needs work.The loss is Central Coasts third on the trot and comes directly before three formidable match-ups against pacesetters Melbourne Victory, Melbourne City and Sydney FC.We have a nine or 10-day turnaround now until our next game after Christmas, Okon said.Thats an opportunity for us to get some work into the players, really crank it up.Because weve got two games in three days, and then six days later Sydney FC.So tough games, but the players showed a lot of belief against a very good team in the Roar, who are in a good patch now.Defender Jacques Faty is expected to return after playing a youth game to ease back from a knee injury thats kept him out for more than a month.He got through that quite well, he feels good, and hopefully hell now really step it up and put his hand up for the Victory game, Okon said. Cheap New Orleans Pelicans Jerseys . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. DeMarcus Cousins Jersey . Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline. Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. http://www.cheappelicansjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-anthony-davis-jersey . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. TORONTO -- Philadelphia Flyers GM Ron Hextall was part of the Eric Lindros blockbuster trade in June 1992 with the Quebec Nordiques and still winces at the memory. He loved being a Flyer and didnt want to leave.As the NHL held a weeklong arbitration process to figure out whether the Nordiques had traded Lindros to the Flyers or New York Rangers -- Nordiques GM Pierre Page had apparently told both teams they had a deal -- Hextall waited.I remember it very clearly because of the timing of it, the arbitration [decision] was happening at noon. Sure enough, my phone rang at noon, said Hextall, in town to see Lindros, Pat Quinn, Rogie Vachon and?Sergei Makarov?inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. We were settled in Philly, I loved the Flyers, I could never imagine playing for another team. Now all of a sudden you get a phone call to say youve been traded. It was difficult. It was hard for me emotionally. I had young kids [6, 4, 1]. It was tough. That was a little shot of reality for a naive Brandon boy.Hextall laughed at how he felt about Lindros at that very moment.I was mad as hell at Eric. Until I got traded back two years later, said Hextall, laughing. Then I thought, This wasnt so bad after all. When I got back to Philly and now Im playing with Eric, then I thought he was more than OK.It is by no accident that the Nordiques insisted on getting prospect Peter Forsberg in the Lindros deal.We knew Forsberg was really good, former Flyers GM Russ Farwell said recently. We couldnt sign him. We couldnt get Forsberg to come over right then. We didnt want to include [Mark] Recchi or [Rod] BrindAmour, so that was the piece that kind of turned the tide, I think.The other GM who negotiated a deal with Quebec at the time was Neil Smith, on behalf of the Rangers. The ensuing arbitration that was needed to decide a winner leftt the Rangers losers in the Lindros sweepstakes. Cheap NBA Jerseys. I asked Smith recently how he felt it would have changed the course of history for the Rangers to get Lindros. I mean, imagine Lindros and Mark Messier as a 1-2 punch at center from 1992 onward?You dont know if we would have won none or if we would have won more than one, responded Smith. His Rangers, of course, won the Cup in 1994. Because you dont know how that trade would have impacted what went on after that. There would be no [Esa] Tikkanen, or there would be no [Tony] Amonte to make that trade with Chicago. Theres so many things.The Big E changed the game during his heyday, of that there is no doubt.Yeah, well, everybody wanted players like him, but those type of players dont come along very often, former Flyers GM Bob Clarke said. Those are the generational players. Every 10 years, one of them comes along. Obviously, its McDavids turn now, but there was a Gretzky, a Lemieux, an Orr, those kind of players; and Lindros was one of those players that comes along every 10 years and seems just better than everyone else.As for Lindros today, it appears his future is not with an NHL team. I asked him during our sitdown interview a few weeks ago if he pictured himself running an NHL team or working for one in some capacity like many of his contemporaries.Never really crossed my mind, Lindros said. I look at some of my buddies that are pro scouts and how much travel they do. I can see it, had Kina and I had kids earlier, and [the kids] were 18-20 years old heading to university, but I just dont want to miss whats going on around the house.Lindros and wife Kina Lamarche have three kids 30 months and younger. Daddy Lindros is busy. ' ' 'ore NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com ' ' '
