MONTREAL -- Quebecers want to bring Major League Baseball back to Montreal, according to results of a poll announced Tuesday. Carlos Santana Jersey . The poll of 1,589 people taken by Leger Marketing showed 69 per cent were in favour of baseballs return to the city. Only 11 per cent were opposed, and those mostly due to what it may cost. Partial results of the poll, which was commissioned by the Montreal board of trade as part of a feasibility study on getting a team, were announced at a news conference called by the Montreal Baseball Project. The project, spearheaded by former Expos outfielder Warren Cromartie, is hoping to revive major league ball in a city that saw the Montreal Expos leave after the 2004 season to become the Washington Nationals. They said 40 per cent of those polled were ready to buy tickets for up to $40 each, while the average MLB ticket price is $27. Board president Michel Leblanc said the poll results convinced the board to continue work on the project. He said results of the feasibility study are to be made public in November. Leblanc said his talks with baseball officials reveled a new, downtown stadium would be preferred if the city is to get a team. Cromartie said three potential sites downtown have been identified, but he preferred not to say where. He said his talks with Major League Baseball officials have been "very positive," but that there were some still opposed to a return to Montreal. He confirmed that his group and the Evenko entertainment company will organize a tribute to the 1994 Expos, which led the major leagues with a 74-40 record when the season was cancelled by lockout. Most of the players on that team are expected to attend. It is to be held March 29 at Olympic Stadium in conjunction with a pre-season game between the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Mets. Cromartie said its important that the game draws a big crowd to show baseball that the fans want their team back. Fans can also buy tickets to a dinner and cocktail event at which tribute will be paid to Felipe Alou, who managed the Expos from 1992 to 2001, and former pitcher Claude Raymond, the first Quebecer to play for the team from 1969 to 1971. Ricky Vaughn Jersey . Eller said the Oilers were a "junior team" that was "all over the place" before Edmontons 4-3 victory over Montreal on Tuesday night, Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins took offence to Ellers comments and used it to motivate his youthful team. Kenny Lofton Jersey . The English Football Association had charged the German right back with violent conduct after retrospectively reviewing video evidence of an incident that was missed by match officials at Craven Cottage on Saturday. . - The Oakland Athletics say they are stopping negotiations to extend their lease at the Coliseum.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots needed help on defence so they added three experienced players at midseason.Turns out theyre also solid students.Linebackers Akeem Ayers and Jonathan Casillas and defensive tackle Alan Branch dove into coach Bill Belichicks complex playbook then produced on the field.Were putting guys into play, right into the mix, Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis said Thursday. Im sure that can be a hassle coming from another team and then a whole new playbook is in front of you, but youve got to give credit to those guys.Now they can help the Patriots (10-3) clinch the AFC East title with a win or tie against the Miami Dolphins (7-6) on Sunday.A season-ending right knee injury to defensive captain Jerod Mayo in the sixth game left the Patriots thin at linebacker. So they made two trades.Before the eighth game, they obtained Ayers and a seventh-round pick in 2015 from Tennessee for a sixth-rounder that year. Before the ninth game, they got Casillas and a sixth-round pick in 2015 from Tampa Bay for their fifth-rounder that year.Then on Oct. 29, one day after the Casillas deal, the Patriots signed Branch. He had been cut by Buffalo on Aug. 24, the day after he was arrested on a drunken-driving charge, but the main factor was performance in the decision to release him, Bills coach Doug Marrone said.All three played less than a week after joining the Patriots.Ayers, a second-round draft pick by Tennessee in 2011, started 43 of the 48 games he played in his first three seasons. But he was inactive for five of seven games with the Titans this year when they switched to a 3-4 scheme.In his first game with the Patriots, just four days after the trade, he had a sack against Jay Cutler of Chicago. In the next game, he sacked Denvers Peyton Manning. And last Sunday night, his fourth start with New England, he iintercepted a pass by Philip Rivers in a 23-14 win at San Diego. Michael Brantley Jersey. Just being able to move around sometimes and just being able to do different things on defence, I really enjoy it, Ayers said.Hes getting more comfortable with the system but still has a lot to learn.I just try to narrow it down as much as I can, he said. Im pretty much learning on the go and I understand Im going to make mistakes out there and there are going to be a few things that arent perfect, but (I) just know that I can fix those mistakes and try not to make them twice.Both he and Casillas also have produced on special teams.Casillas signed with New Orleans as an undrafted free agent in 2009 and started just eight games in three seasons with the Saints. He was a backup in Tampa Bay last season before starting three of his five games with the Buccaneers this season.His approach to a different playbook is simple.Its really no secret, Casillas said. If you care what youre doing, you just have to put the extra time in. Ive been putting in a little extra time with (linebackers coach) Pat Graham and even with Akeem.Branch was a second-round pick by Arizona in 2007 and started 13 games for Buffalo last year. But he didnt attend any of the Bills voluntary spring practices this year then failed his conditioning in training camp.They definitely helped me out with the cardio program they have here (to) just make sure Im able to compete with the other guys for longer than a couple of plays at a time, he said. Im definitely appreciative of the chance theyve given me.And he, Ayers and Casillas have given back.All three of those players have definitely helped us, both with their playing time, their performance and Id say the rapid pace at which theyve picked things up, Belichick said.___AP NFL website: and China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys ' ' '
