NEW YORK, N.Y. - Derek Jeter is among the most media-savvy athletes on the planet, but he says it came through trial and error.I think you learn through experience, he told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday, three days after he finished his 20th and final season with the New York Yankees. Ive made my fair share of mistakes with the media.Jeter is hoping to help other athletes avoid those mistakes a€” and get out their own unfiltered stories a€” with the launch of The Players Tribune website. His site, which went live Wednesday, promises unique access to top athletes in every sport a€” from videos to photos to podcasts and more a€” in their own words.You want players to feel like this is a safe place where they can get their message across how they want to portray it, the former shortstop said.Jeter said he doesnt see The Players Tribune as a replacement for reporters.Were not trying to take away from sportswriters. Sportswriters are what makes sports successful, he said. I think were sort of working in conjunction with them.The 40-year-old said todays athletes are familiar with a variety of platforms to get across their message.This generation has fun sharing things, he said.But he said his website will fill a void in the communication process, noting it will let players go into more detail than the 140-character limit on Twitter. (He isnt on Twitter and acknowledged hes not too familiar with it.)How many times do you see someone put something out, and then next thing you know, theyre saying it came across the wrong way, it was out of context, its not what I meant, he said.He also noted that sports media doesnt always have time to cover all athletes and tell their storiesThe former All-Star won five championships during a storied career. In his first post on the site, he spoke about the whirlwind of his final season and his disappointment in missing the post-season.When asked if he watched the Kansas City Royals thrilling extra-innings win over the Oakland Athletics in the American League Wild Card game on Tuesday night, he said no.Even though it was Jeters decision to call it a career, the desire to be out there remains: He likened watching the post-season to being a kid who isnt allowed to play with his friends.But he made it clear that he wont be returning to Yankee Stadium, either as a player or as a broadcaster.Im not going to be in the booth, he said. I have a hard time criticizing people.Jeter said he plans to concentrate on the website and expand his business portfolio.I have a whole lot to learn, but its exciting, he said.___Online:http://www.theplayerstribune.com___Follow Nekesa Mumbi Moody at http://www.twitter.com/nekesamumbi Matt Slauson Jersey .

The former Toronto FC designated player played three of his 15 professional seasons with the team.GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. He and his Phoenix Coyotes teammates had to wait for a bit after the final buzzer sounded to see if the goal counted. It did -- an empty-netter from his own crease as the game clock expired that floated down the ice and into the net at the horn -- capping the Coyotes 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. Smith accepted congratulations from the Coyotes, unaware he had become the 11th goaltender in NHL history to score. Two goalies have scored more than once, Martin Brodeur (three) and Ron Hextall (two) according to NHL.com. The last goalie to score in the regular season or playoffs was Brodeur for the New Jersey Devils on March 21 at Carolina. "I dont know what to say, really," Smith said. "Obviously Im thrilled with the way we played. Its just a bonus to be able to score a goal in this league as a goaltender. We did a lot of really good things tonight against a good hockey team." Smith had given the Coyotes and their fans a scare when he dropped face-down onto the ice 10:08 into the second period after reaching to block a shot. Smith was down for a couple of minutes, being attended to by a trainer, but remained in the game. Detroit scored immediately after Smith went down, but the goal was waved off. Smith said he felt a sharp pain that shot up into his neck. As he lay on the ice, the pain subsided and he was able to continue. "Its nothing concerning," he said. Smith said he tries a long shot from his own goal toward the other net in practice every so often and had scored for Lexington in the ECHL during the 2002-03 season. "A lot of things have to go right for it to happen," he said. "The clock has to slow down at the right time of the game to let it trickle in over the line." It was a bonus goal, as Mike Ribeiro scored twice in the third period to help the Coyotes storm back from a 2-0 deficit in the opening frame. Martin Hanzals goal at 7:08 of the third, in his 400th NHL game, put Phoenix ahead 3-2. That came 2:01 after Ribeiro had tied it. "The most important thing was the team and the way we came back," Ribeiro said. "He finds a way to have an impact on the game," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "Hes a quirky player, but he can do things for you." Ribeiros thhird of the season with 6:46 remaining gave Phoenix a 4-2 lead before Smith sealed the win in dramatic fashion.dddddddddddd Antoine Vermette started the comeback in the second after Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi gave the Red Wings the lead in the first. Detroit had a four-game winning streak snapped. The Coyotes finished a two-game season sweep of their former Western Conference rivals. Phoenix beat the Red Wings 4-2 in Detroit on Oct. 10. "They worked harder than we did, we turned over too many pucks," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "We werent good enough, we didnt play hard enough and we didnt have enough people going." Howard stopped 16 shots in the first period, the most shots the Coyotes have had in an opening period this season. The Coyotes had a chance to cut the Red Wings lead to one early in the second after Shane Doan was taken down on a clear scoring chance by defenceman Brendan Smith, but Howard extended his left leg and blocked Doans attempted right-handed shot in front. Howard made 28 saves in his return to the ice after missing three games because of a bruised left hand. "We had the lead 2-1, and we have to find a way to grind out wins like that on the road," Howard said. Datsyuk and Bertuzzi scored less than five minutes apart for the Red Wings, Datsyuk with the deflection of a pass from Henrik Zetterberg from the left wing, and Bertuzzi with an unassisted tally. Phoenix got on the board with a minute left in the second period. Vermette helped clear the puck off the boards in the Coyotes zone to teammate Rob Klinkhammer. Vermette took off down the ice, got a return pass from Klinkhammer and lifted a slap shot over defenceman Danny DeKeysers stick and over Howards left shoulder. The Coyotes drew even on Ribeiros goal, which came after a faceoff and pass from Mikkel Boedker that was deflected in front to Ribeiro. Ribeiro has a point in six straight games. Boedker tallied a pair of assists. NOTES: Red Wings D Niklas Kronwall didnt play after sustaining a concussion from a hard hit Thursday at Denver. Kronwalls streak of 138 straight games came to an end. He said Saturday that he was feeling no symptoms, and he was listed as day-to-day. ...
