Bayer Leverkusen joins the bid for the Brazilian Emerson

first_imgBetis is aware that it will not be easy to retain Emerson this summer and that the last word will be in the hands of Barcelona, ​​which can be done with the footballer despite the fact that the initial intention was for him to play in Heliópolis until 2021. Bayer Leverkusen is the last to sign up to bid on the right side: according to the newspaper KickerThe German team would be willing to pay a large amount of money to convince Barça of its transfer. The culé club expects figures of between 20 and 30 million to do business with the Brazilian, although it would force its buyer to leave a future option to buy back on the table.In Germany they assure that the conversations between clubs are already on the table and there is a disposition of the parties waiting for the course to end and the player himself can also glimpse his future with more certainty. Barcelona sees feasible economic management that leaves immediate benefits without closing the doors for the player to return in the future if his jump to the elite ends up being definitive. His good campaign at Betis is arousing the desire of numerous clubs and Leverkusen has the potential to bear that cost. In any case, Betis sees the continuity of its starting right back in danger and he does not hesitate to move a chip to protect that position for the next course. With Barragán and Francis out of the coach’s plans (the first ends his contract and the second is on loan), in Heliópolis they fear the hypothetical shortcomings that they may have in the summer when it comes to repairing those possible exits in the right lane.

Press Talk Dont bite the hand that feeds ya

first_imgYo, all you Electoral College supporters:Huh?Let me say that again.Huh?Last week I made the case against electing a president through the Electoral College. My point was pretty simple. In the vast majority of states — let’s see if I can be politically correct here — your vote doesn’t mean jack. Why?Well, for example, right here in Washington, if 49 percent vote for Romney, when they ship the vote total to HQ (that would be D.C.), that 49 percent turns into 0 percent of electoral votes.And that will happen in this election. Obama will get all the electoral votes in our state.Second, we can elect a president even if he doesn’t have the most votes.Now, electing a president by popular vote — so the right person actually becomes president — is so logical and obvious I didn’t expect much kickback.Who was I kidding? Myself, I guess.My conservative blogging buddy Lew Waters was one of the first out of the box defending this indefensible position.Lew said the Electoral College is there to protect all of us from the “tyranny of the majority.” Lew went on to say that it appeared the founding fathers “did not trust the people to do their homework.”Odd that my buddy Lew has been clamoring for a public vote on light rail, yet he supports no public vote to elect the president. Hey, Lew, don’t we have to protect light rail from the “tyranny of the majority”? 🙂last_img read more
