On Wednesday the team announced a nine-year agreement to rename their rink Gila (pronounce hee-lah) River Arena. It was the latest in a line of long-term corporate contracts the Coyotes have entered into to entrench themselves in Arizona. "This is all about the economic viability of this club," co-owner, president and CEO Anthony LeBlanc told a conference call. "This is the most significant deal that we have in our corporate sponsors." As long as this deal is approved Sept. 9 by the Glendale City Council, the building formerly known as Jobing.com Arena will have its new name the next day. LeBlanc, part of the teams Canadian-led ownership group, said the city will receive US$600,000 from the agreement and that he didnt expect approval to be a problem. LeBlanc didnt reveal how much the Coyotes will get from the new agreement. The previous deal with Jobing.com that the team terminated was reportedly worth $30 million over 10 years. Gila River Arena will be the first North American professional sports stadium named by a federally recognized Native American tribe. It will also be the first named after a casino, but LeBlanc didnt express any concern about connecting the NHL team to a gambling institution. Gambling on hockey and other sports is illegal in the state of Arizona. Gila Rivers three casinos offer slots, poker and other table games. "Obviously we went through our due diligence in the process, and we worked very closely with the National Hockey League ... to ensure that it falls within the requirements, and obviously it did," LeBlanc said. "This wouldnt have been announced without the league blessing it." Since new ownership closed its deal to buy the Coyotes in August 2013, it has put a priority on selling tickets and suites and picking up more corporate sponsors to grow the teams reach. That hasnt stopped speculation and criticism from the outside, though LeBlanc again brushed it off Wednesday. "I couldnt care less what the critics have to say," LeBlanc said. "None of our motivation has to do with anyones going to be critical about this franchise. If theyre critical, they quite frankly dont understand what it is that were doing." Russell Westbrook Jersey . - Mark Sanchez found out the New York Jets had acquired Tim Tebow on a conference call with team management. Kyle Singler Jersey . - Vince Wilfork has played only two career games in Kansas City.GLENDALE, Ariz. - The NFL will test having game officials use tablets for video reviews in Sundays Pro Bowl.Coaches and players for the first time have been using the Microsoft Surface tablets on the sidelines all season to look at photos of previous plays.Having the referee look at replays to determine if calls were correct could lead to eliminating the official going under the hood for reviews.The test in the Pro Bowl gives us the opportunity to see the practicality of the technology in game-time situations, make adjustments or improvements where necessary, and also gauge the usefulness of it to the officials, Troy Vincent, the NFLs football operations chief, said Saturday. Certainly, we believe it is an enhancement that we would like to integrate in the future.An NFL staffer will wear a backpack containing wireless radios, and will hold a Surface Pro 3 tablet and headphones during the game.When a video review is needed, that staffer will hold the tablet and referee John Parry will don the headphones. It is hoped this will speed up the entire process.If it works well Sunday, this review method wont be a one-off.Preseason testing of this technology is very likely, Vincent added. The process for regular-season use would involve a review and approval by the competition committee.The powerful competition committee meets in February to presentt recommendations and proposals to the 32 owners in March at league meetings in Phoenix. Andre Roberson Jersey. The league also will debut use of real-time video on the tablets for coaches and players to review during the Pro Bowl.Vincent believes the use of in-game video rather than photos still could make the game more competitive.The sideline of the future may also see technology that tracks a players health during the game, his recovery time, and other particulars that may make the game safer, he said. As technology advances, so will the ability of our coaches, players and officials to adapt and adopt new uses.The future of the sideline is very exciting and promising.Microsoft signed a five-year, $400 million deal with the NFL in 2013, and has quickly brought enhanced technology to the field and sidelines.Were very pleased with the incredibly positive feedback weve received from players, coaches, video directors, and league personnel on their use of the Microsoft Surface tablets and the Surface sideline viewing system in-game this year, said James Bernstrom, director of product marketing at Microsoft.The Pro Bowl is yet another way were working with the NFL to utilize Microsoft technology to help make teams more productive on the sidelines and the game more competitive.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Throwback China NFL Hoodies NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China ' ' '
