TORONTO - With Sebastian Giovinco on board ahead of schedule, Toronto FC will be at full strength to negotiate a brutal opening to the 2015 MLS season. Cheap Puma Shoes Online Australia .It may be the best piece of business Toronto GM Tim Bezbatchenko has done, although he credits Giovinco and his agent for prying the five-foot-four Italian playmaker loose from Juventus ahead of July when his existing contract was to expire.The official announcement came via Juventus on Monday, the final day of the transfer window.Giovinco has today left the club to begin his new adventure with FC Toronto. Good luck, Seba! the club tweeted.In getting Giovinco into camp next week, head coach Greg Vanney will have close to a month to work with him ahead of the March 7 season opener in Vancouver. And the player himself will have time to adjust to his new surroundings, on and off the pitch. With Toronto facing seven straight road games to open the season due to stadium renovations, Giovincos early arrival is extremely helpful to getting off on the right foot, Bezbatchenko said Monday from Orlando, where the team is training.Im very excited today, he added. Especially because of the way it went about, its really worked out to TFCs advantage.Since announcing Giovincos signing Jan. 19, Toronto has been low-key about the players early arrival. Bezbatchenko denied any further negotiations with Juventus but with Giovinco not playing, there was plenty of speculation he would come earlier than expected.In the end it worked out for everyone. Juventus rid itself of an asset that was going anyway. Giovinco gets his MLS pay sooner than later and Toronto can start building around its offensive schemer.Bezbatchenko said his club did not pay Juventus anything extra for the early release, although Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment will have to pay the full seven-figure freight for Giovinco this season instead of a pro-rated half-season.The Toronto GM also said, to his knowledge, the Giovinco camp did not have to pay anything to Juventus. The five-foot-four forward known as The Atomic Ant made 130 appearances for Juventus over his career but only 10 this season. He scored twice in his final appearance last month, a 6-1 Italian Cup win over Verona.Bezbatchenko said the club is still looking for one or two more pieces. We always are.The club may look to add on the wing. It also has to unload Brazilian striker Gilberto, who is the odd man out in a designated player group that also includes Giovinco, midfielder Michael Bradley and striker Jozy Altidore.Toronto has until March 1 to meet roster compliance, which means only three designated players. Then it has to produce on the pitch after a 2-6-2 finish to the season under Vanney, who took over after Ryan Nelsen was fired Aug. 31.Other additions bolstering last years 11-15-8 squad are veteran defender Damien Perquis and midfielder Benoit Cheyrou, who may join the team Tuesday in Florida.

Puma Shoes Clearance Sale .Y. -- Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff had an opportunity to experience an entire range of emotions in his first trip back to Buffalo to face his former team. .ca has you covered for whos in, whos out and what to expect from all 30 teams.JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Jaguars have taken another step toward parting ways with suspended receiver Justin Blackmon. The Jaguars removed Blackmons name plate from atop his locker, the latest indication that the former first-round draft pick has no future with the franchise. The team placed rookie quarterback Stephen Morris from Miami in the stall. Blackmon is suspended without pay indefinitely for repeated violations of the leagues substance-abuse policy, and general manager Dave Caldwell indicated last week that he would consider cutting Blackmon when and if he gets reinstated. Owner Shad Khan weighed in after the teams state-of-the-franchise presentation Tuesday. "I think its an absolute tragedy," he said. "I have a hard time expressing. Im a parent myself. I met with his parents. I think hes such a talented guy, the best years ahead of him. But after a while, its out of your control." The Jaguars have expressed disappointment with not being in contact with Blackmon, and NFL rules limit contact coaches and front-office personnel can have with suspended players. "The league has rules. We have to follow them. And its simple as that," Khan said. "The league, the players association, theres a huge amount of resources. The only thing I can (say) is please take advantage of it. If youre a player, its like all of this stuff is being offered to you. Take advantage of it. I think NFL players are so lucky from the viewpoint all these resources that are available to him." Blackmon was suspended the first four games of last year for violating the substance-abuse policy. Hee played four games before getting suspended again — at least for a year. Puma Shoes Online Australia. The Jaguars had been hoping Blackmon would be eligible to return after eight games in 2014. But after losing contact with him, coach Gus Bradley said last week that "it doesnt sound like its going in the right direction. ... We cant count on him." Jacksonville drafted two receivers in the second round Friday to fill the void, selecting USCs Marqise Lee with the 39th overall pick and then adding Penn States Allen Robinson at No. 61. "Having those guys in that room will definitely help us get better on the field," fellow receiver Cecil Shorts III said. Blackmon has 93 catches for 1,280 yards and six scores in 20 games — all since Jacksonville traded up to select the former Oklahoma State star with the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft. His problems have been off the field. Blackmon was involved in three substance-related incidents in three years. He was arrested on a misdemeanour DUI charge in Texas in 2010 after officers caught him speeding on a suburban Dallas highway. The charge was later reduced to an underage alcohol possession charge. A little more than a month after the Jaguars drafted him, he was arrested during a traffic stop in Stillwater, Oklahoma, after a breath test allegedly showed his blood alcohol content to be three times the legal limit. A subsequent violation landed him the four-game suspension. Another one got him the indefinite suspension. Khan said the tough part is that Blackmon doesnt seem to want help. "Its frankly hard to understand," Khan said. ' ' '
