Despite the 600-yd different in distance between the '97 and '15 courses, the difficulty of the Masters in the two periods is comparable because new equipment has added ~600 yards to everybody. It will seldom play easier -- especially for all four days -- than it did this time. BUT it is still a magnificent win for Spieth. He carried the burden of the lead for all four days. He faced down memories of his Sunday mistakes in '14. Spieth probably lacks the length off the tee to approach Tiger's records. It shouldn't be expected that he, or anybody, "should" approach 14 majors. But he and McIlroy (4) already have five majors between them. If Ricky Fowler wins a major and adds even more confidence, he and Spieth could help the U. S. compete better in Ryder Cup. I always support the players vs the owners and do not begrudge them their money. But I do find it fascinating how they get obsessed over amounts of money that are so large that in any practical sense they same. Mathematically yes a 160 million is more than 107 money or 130 million and the difference of 30 or 57 million is a huge amount of money. But at some point you have to wonder what you can buy if you make 160 million over your career that you can't buy if you only made 124 million. So while I understand not wanting to leave money on the table but I think the players need.
In addition to releasing updated Panigale models for 2015 , Ducati has also announced at EICMA new Multistrada 1200 models. As expected, the Multistrada now features Desmodromic Variable Timing (DVT) , which the company announced last week.

DUCATI MULTISTRADA 1200: SETTING A NEW STANDARD As soon as it was launched back in 2010, the Multistrada 1200 revolutionised the motorcycling world by offering, for the very first time, nothing less than four bikes in one: from super sport to...

With a 4-4 record, he acknowledges “there are some things broken. You can’t keep doing the same things over and over, can’t keep making the same mistakes over and over. Right now our backs are against the wall, and when backs are against the wall, you find out a lot about yourself. Former 49ers QB Steve Young was the one who dropped the “broken” phrase earlier in the day, telling ESPN Radio in New York: “They looked broken and I can’t figure that out. It’s now how we are going to respond to it that’s going to make the difference. On whether Greg Roman should be blamed for the offensive woes and why Frank Gore didn’t get the ball on the goal-line in the final snaps: Regarding Roman, he declined to “put it all on one person” and said everyone must come together. Regarding Gore, Baalke said the team’s all-time leading rusher and offensive line surely would have wanted to run the ball, but that “you try to take advantage of what defenses allow you to have. ” The Rams defense, at last check, didn’t allow a touchdown (at least not one that could be verified upon replay review). A layover in Youngstown, Ohio remains possible next week between road games at New Orleans and the New York Giants.
