Baunach fear opponent comes

Baunach fear opponent comes

After the clear defeat in tubingen, the baunach young pikes are eager to make amends in front of their fans in the graf-stauffenberg-halle. Guest in the 2. Basketball league proa are on saturday at 7 pm the uni baskets paderborn, a team that you can safely call the fear opponent of the "young pike" can call.

Of eight matches against the team from north rhine-westphalia so far, the upper franconians have only been able to decide one game in their favor. At the end of february 2015, they left in the "blue" as winners from the parquet, but then lost the following six encounters. A constant for the guests is trainer and sports director uli naechster, who has been on the sidelines in all duels against paderborn so far. However, the uni baskets have not been able to maintain this consistency on the pitch in the current season. Almost the entire squad was newly assembled, so that the successful performance so far is a little surprising.

No chance in hamburg

Just like the baunach team, the guests have a balanced points account, and like the team of trainer felix czerny, the uni baskets also had to take a severe defeat last weekend after three wins in a row. After a balanced first quarter, they had no chance against the hamburg towers and lost 68:95. One reason for the clear defeat was certainly an unusually weak three-point quota (26 percent) for the guests. In their victories so far, the paderborn team has always been able to rely on their good guards grant benzinger and connor wood. Both have already converted 32 threes at a rate of 40 percent in the six matches so far and are the most dangerous point scorers alongside power forward matt klinewski and setter demetrius ward.

Triple attack: heynckes is “man of the year

Triple attack: heynckes is

After FC bayern's premature gift-giving, jupp heynckes was most looking forward to a few contemplative and relaxing days on his beloved farm.

"Take a short break, catch your breath, switch off, find some peace and don"t just think about soccer from morning till night" – that was the 72-year-old"s wish list at the start of his christmas vacation after the shaky 2-1 win in the cup summit against fallen defending champions borussia dortmund.

After 15 wins in 16 compulsory games under his direction, the coach-returner, celebrated in munich and admired nationwide, has been awarded the unofficial title of "man of the year" in german soccer. Heynckes himself spoke of an "outstanding quota". And with the experienced triple coach from 2013 on the bench, the reinvigorated german record champion can expect a lot again in 2018; as a minimum, the twelfth double in the club's history.

The “foto-otto” in front of the camera

The ' foto-otto='

As a "foto-otto he is almost a legend: hans-gunther otto was on the road for decades as a reporter for the frankischer tag in the western district of erlangen-hochstadt. Now otto, who has photographed countless honors for the french day, was himself in the spotlight. The hubertus-schutzen of adelsdorf expressed their thanks and appreciation to their long-time member for 50 years of loyalty to the club.
In his vw-kafer or on his moped, hans-gunther otto once rushed from appointment to appointment on behalf of the french day. Until a serious traffic accident put an end to his work. Today he lives completely without a schedule and quite contentedly in the BRK home in etzelskirchen.
The 76-year-old has personally witnessed the development of photography. He had completed his training in two bamberger photographic companies and graduated as a master photographer.
When hans-gunther otto tells his story, the generation of digital photographers is inevitably amazed: in otto's teaching years, the shutter was still operated by means of a rubber ball. To get the black-and-white films onto paper, it sometimes took hours in the darkroom.
In the erlangen dental clinic, otto was even able to pursue "scientific photography" pursue.
He also remembers one of his most memorable experiences from that time. He was allowed to photograph identical quadruplets, which were indistinguishable from each other.
The FT reporter had the advantage of having served as a volunteer with the BRK. Because the accidents to which the photographer was called were sometimes very "bloody" ones matters.
Even today, he remembers a terrible traffic accident with a fatality that took place in his home town
the 1960s between hemhofen and rottenbach.

Joy and sorrow photographed

During his time at frankischer tag, the FT photographer has grown particularly fond of germany's rough tea factory in vestenbergsgreuth. For the late entrepreneur hans wedel, otto was not only the house and yard photographer, but almost a friend.
"I photographed joy and sorrow, otto remembers. As well as when hans wedel was buried and the then minister president gunther beckstein landed by helicopter on the vestenbergsgreuth sports field.
Born in egloffstein in french-speaking switzerland, otto grew up in adelsdorf with three siblings. He not only focused and shot with the camera, but also in the shooting club with air rifle and indoor rifle. His hubertus guardians have not forgotten him.
Although they have gross problems with the fact that the pushing sport today no longer has the attraction that it once possessed. The result is not only a decline in membership, but also a lack of motivation when the association calls for the commitment of its members.

Deceiving images of police officers

Deceiving images of police officers

The case from bayreuth from the fubball world cup summer 2018 has been cleared in the meantime. A policeman had sprayed pepper spray into the faces of russian football fans who were celebrating the progress of the russian team and blocking an intersection without warning. The 46-year-old chief officer had reacted completely over the top, the district judge in bayreuth said two weeks ago, and sentenced the officer to a fine of 7200 euros. Probably also because video recordings of passers-by had comprehensively documented the event.

"Investigations are ongoing"

Such videos, which were posted on the internet by witnesses, also exist of two recent cases from france. In may, a 21-year-old woman was visibly knocked to the ground by a fist blow from one of the officers during an operation for restraint in weismain (district of lichtenfels). In june, two officers in nurnberg beat a man lying on the ground who refused to be tied up.

Even weeks later, it is still not clear whether the police officers’ behavior has any consequences. "The investigations are continuing" – a sentence that can be heard both from senior public prosecutor antje gabriels-gorsolke in nurnberg and from coburg public prosecutor johannes trankle (in the weismain case). After all, the state criminal police office (LKA) has been investigating accusations against police officers in bavaria since march 2013. Previously, the respective police prasidiums had investigated such cases themselves. "We gather the facts. The public prosecutor’s office then examines the case legally. She is the master of the investigative process", explains fabian puchelt of the LKA press office.

Bayreuth wants replay

Bayreuth wants replay

Medi trainer raoul korner loves to blow off steam at the press conference. He was angry with the referees aleksandar glisic (serbia), zafer yilmaz (turkey) and luka kardum (croatia), who often ruled against the bayreuth team. Korner did not even mention the many dubious foul decisions, but was only upset about a serious misjudgement by the referees in the final phase of the game.

This is how it happened: the bayreuth team had reduced a 24-point deficit to nine points (70:79) in the last quarter after a capital false start (6:24) with a rough energy performance. 1:23 minutes remained on the clock when raoul korner took a timeout. "I've given my team a game plan that starts on the right side of the field." But then the bayreuthers were not allowed to put the ball in from the side they wanted, only from the other side – a clear violation of the rules, korner scolded. "The players were naturally disorganized."

And when the medi coach vehemently complained about the violation of the rules, he was given a technical foul, strabburg received a free throw. "I have never experienced this in 20 years as a basketball coach. The referees don't know the rules, and I'm being punished for it. This is embarrassing", raged the austrian, who felt that this miscue deprived his team of the chance to perhaps win the game after all. Now he hopes FIBA will act after studying the video recording. Raoul korner even calls for a replay.

Spectators in indoor sports: professional clubs exert pressure on politicians

spectators in indoor sports: professional clubs exert pressure on politicians

After the amateur clubs in bavaria, led by the soccer clubs, had pressed hard – even threatening legal action – for a start to the season with spectators, the professional clubs of the indoor sports are now also putting pressure on the politicians.

While from the weekend 19. September 200 spectators are allowed indoors and 400 outdoors at the amateur level, professional sports are still waiting for political decisions a few weeks before the start of the season. In the handball bundesliga in particular, the time until the start of the season on 1. October.

The two french representatives, HC erlangen and HSC 2000 coburg, in particular still face a series of burocratic hurdles. On thursday evening, the two french rivals faced each other in a test match in the coburg HUK arena – erlangen retained the upper hand with 31:30. The plan was for both teams to test their mettle against SC dhfk leipzig, a team from the saxonian national league, on friday and saturday at the same venue. But both games were canceled, because a permit for preparatory games against non-bavarian teams on bavarian soil is still not available to the clubs.
