SEATTLE - The Toronto FC revolution will have to start without newly acquired striker Gilberto. The Brazilian designated player, one of several marquee acquisitions in the off-season, has been left in Toronto due to injury as manager Ryan Nelsens revamped MLS team prepares for its season opener Saturday in Seattle. Gilbertos pre-season has been disrupted by an upper leg injury. Unlike fellow designated players Jermain Defoe and Michael Bradley, Gilberto was also out of season going into the start of camp. Torontos home opener is March 22 against D.C. United. Teuvo Teravainen Blackhawks Jersey . The England international had both goals in TFCs season-opening 2-1 win over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday. CM Punk Blackhawks Jersey . Make that, almost always subjective. Saturday at Carrow Road, the spirit of fair play trumped the rulebook, costing Norwich City three points. http://www.blackhawksshophockey.com/red ... ns-jersey/. Hes just beginning to get similar results. The right-hander struggled after winning the honour in 2008 and 2009, but a retooling of his game has begun to pay off and has the San Francisco Giants thinking about the Lincecum of old. Chicago Blackhawks Hats . Of course that doesnt mean hes ignoring it. Thats actually rather impossible given the behind-the-scenes access to the Toronto Maple Leafs the network is getting. Erik Gustafsson Jersey . -- The Kelowna Rockets earned their 16th straight win with a 7-2 rout of the Portland Winterhawks in Western Hockey League action Thursday.The British Horseracing Authority believes the recommendations made in a new review will set out a blueprint for how its integrity team should operate in the future. The integrity review was launched last summer with the team - which was led by the BHAs director of integrity, legal and risk, Adam Brickell and included an independent regulatory director in Sir Paul Stephenson as well as a panel of leading experts from the fields of sport, regulation and racing - interviewing more than 100 individuals.Trainers, owners, jockeys - and their representative bodies - the betting public, media, legal representatives and others who have an interest in British racings integrity work were able to put forward their views and while the overall impression was favourable, some criticisms were highlighted. The BHA has identified some recurring themes and specific areas where there are opportunities for improvement, prompting a list of suggestions as to how processes and procedures may be improved.The review makes six main recommendations with the establishment of a stakeholder integrity forum, which will include licensed personnel, to act as an advisory group the first key point.Improvements to the investigation, case management and disciplinary process is the second area pinpointed in the review, with proposal of a formal investigation charter to everyone involved in an investigation, at the outset, which sets out their rights and obligations and what they can expect from the process, as well as a code of conduct.The BHA will develop a fast-track process to deal with minor or admitted offences outside of the full disciplinary process and a review of the level of penalties for minor rule breaches.The formalisation of a new integrity strategy, with the aim to do more to educate and protect the majority of participants who comply or are trying to comply with the rules along with looking at improvements to the way in which the media, racing and betting public and the sports participants are informed on what the BHA are doing to protect the integrity of the sport.The BHA also plans to work with stakeholders to review the structure, composition and processes of the Disciplinary Panel, Licensing Committee and Appeal Board to make sure that the sports participants have full confidence in them.Finally, the BHAs extension of partnerships with other organisations across the betting industry, other racing jurisdictions, other sports and regulators in order to increase access to intelligence is also recommended.A number of other smaller ideas were also proposed, including the establishment of a set of guidelines as to the acceptable time-frame within which a disciplinary panel would be expected to produce a decision and reasons following an inquiry, an annual public integrity survey and adding new senior-level resource within the integrity, legal and risk department.

From my brief time within the racing industry and from the people I have spoken to as part of this review it has become clear to me that British Racing is seen as a leader when it comes to managing sporting integrity.This is evidenced by the fact that other sports and racing jurisdictions constantly contact us for guidance on running integrity services.However, we do not have a divine right to this reputation. Hence this Review was instigated to ensure that British Racing is doing all it can to maintain and improve this reputation.Brickell was pleased to see a largely favourable overview of the BHAs work but believes constructive criticism is a valuable tool.He said: The BHA has an excelleent track record of detecting and taking action to remove corruption from British horse racing.dddddddddddde are not complacent, and this review, far from revealing serious weaknesses in our approach, shows that we are open, transparent and committed to continuously improving in order to remain among the worlds leaders in sport integrity. It also shows we are confident enough to admit when we make mistakes and to learn from them.We believe that the resultant recommendations, which include some notable, tangible improvements and additions to our procedures and policies, will set out a blueprint for how the BHA integrity team should work with the sport to continue to set standards for others to follow.I am extremely grateful to all of those who gave up their time to take part in the review. We were, at times, challenged robustly by those individuals and it is only through being challenged in such a way that you can learn and improve.An Independent Challenge Panel was established to oversee the Review and ensure the rigour and fairness of the process and to challenge the direction of the Review and the recommendations that arose. The Panel was chaired byNick Bitel, chief executive of the London Marathon and consultant at Kerman & Co solicitors, chaired the challenge panel.He was pleased the BHA admitted its failings in some previous cases, including those of trainers Jim Boyle and Kate Walton, who were involved in investigations which took long periods of time to be resolveed.He said: The challenge panel considers that the review was thorough and carried out properly in accordance with its remit, and reflects a serious and constructive approach by the BHA to achieving the objectives of the review.While we felt that the initial scope and terms of reference were too narrow, we are pleased that, at our request, the BHA widened the review to include some aspects of its disciplinary structure, and that based on the results, has now agreed to a further, separate review of the structure, composition and processes of the Disciplinary Board and Appeal Panel.The Panel applauds the willingness of the BHA to recognise and apologise for past failings, both generally and in the specific case studies of Jim Boyle and Kate Walton included within the review.Paul Struthers, chief executive of the Professional Jockeys Association, welcomed the reviews recommendations.He said: We are pleased that any concerns that this could be a case of the BHA marking its own homework have proved unfounded.The review acknowledges a number of areas for improvement and the correctly offered apologies to Kate Walton and Jim Boyle further demonstrate the change in tone and approach that has been increasingly seen under Nick Rusts tenure.We welcome the review and recommendations and the review team, led by Adam, should be applauded for their work.It is of course vital these recommendations are fully implemented and that outstanding concerns around disciplinary panel processes are addressed.The PJA fully supports a robust integrity framework but this has to be fair and transparent. This review and recommendations, once implemented, should help to ensure this and repair the confidence that had otherwise been lost.Rupert Arnold, chief executive of the National Trainers Federation (NTF), added: We are pleased that the review acknowledges that there have been failings in the investigatory and disciplinary processes.We would especially point to the recommendation to create an investigation charter and code of conduct for disciplinary cases. Defendants must be treated properly and understand how the process will develop.We also welcome the other recommendations including an emphasis on protection and education and alternative methods of dealing with minor offences as well as exploring the provision of pro bono legal advice for disciplinary hearings.
