GENEVA -- Much of the intense Olympic action before the Rio de Janeiro Games open in less than two weeks is set to play out in the law courts. Wholesale NHL Jerseys Free Shipping .For many Russian athletes caught up in a doping scandal, a legal fight -- and a race against time to get the verdict they want -- is their biggest barrier to competing.The Court of Arbitration for Sport already handed one defeat to Russia on Thursday. It rejected an appeal by 67 Russian track and field athletes who the International Association of Athletics Federation had declared ineligible for Rio after previously banning their national federation from international competitions.On Sunday, the International Olympic Committees executive board will consider banning all Russian teams from the Summer Games because of a state-sponsored doping conspiracy.If the IOC imposes the toughest punishment, the Russian OIympic committee could then also challenge it at CAS, which opens a special Olympic court in Rio next week.Cases can go above world sports appeal court. Just a short walk from CASs headquarters in Lausanne is Switzerlands supreme court -- the Swiss Federal Tribunal.Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko already suggested that the 67 athletes could defend their honor and dignity by going to a higher civil court.Many try but few succeed in persuading Swiss federal judges to overturn CAS verdicts.---WHO CAN APPEAL A CAS VERDICT?Anyone who loses before a typical three-member panel of CAS judges can file a further appeal at its home countrys highest civil court, the Swiss Federal Tribunal.A federal case is slow and tough to win, with few grounds of appeal.Federal judges intervene if legal process was abused but will not re-examine the merits of a case.A faster option for Russian appeals would be for a provisional measure -- an interim ruling to freeze a verdict pending the full case.---WHO HAS BEATEN CAS AT FEDERAL COURT?Very few cases, at a rate of about one per year of around 400 arbitration and appeal processes annually.It is even possible to overturn a CAS verdict in the federal court and still lose the re-trial. That happened to tennis player Guillermo Canas of Argentina in 2007.Canas was initially banned for two years by the ATP Tours anti-doping tribunal, and saw that reduced to 15 months at CAS.When Canas went to federal court, Swiss judges ruled his right to be heard had been breached and sent back the case. A second CAS hearing also applied a 15-month ban.---WHATS THE BEST WAY TO BEAT CAS?Federal judges have set aside several verdicts on the grounds that CAS did not have jurisdiction to judge the original case. Those cases include a win and a loss for the International Ice Hockey Federation.The IIHF lost to a German international player whose ban for refusing a doping test was overturned. It then won a million-dollar compensation case against Swiss hockey champion Bern.CAS had awarded the club damages for lost earnings when the 2009-10 Champions Hockey League folded due to the main sponsor, Russian energy giant Gazprom, pulling out.---IS THERE AN EXCEPTION TO GIVE RUSSIA HOPE?The case of Brazilian soccer player Matuzalem stands out for federal judges intervening to say: Enough is enough.He won a supreme court ruling in 2012 over a manifest and serious attack on his rights by FIFA and CAS.Matuzalem broke his contract to force a transfer and was ordered to compensate his former club, Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine, around $15 million.When the player struggled to pay, and broke FIFAs disciplinary rules, he filed a further round of appeals to CAS and the federal court.Federal judges objected to Shakhtar having the power to request a ban, which itself could curb Matuzalems ability to earn and repay the debt.In exceptional cases, a sentence can be annulled for violation of the essential principles of the judicial system, named `the public order, the federal court said.Could Russian authorities or athletes eventually persuade Swiss judges that an Olympic ban is a similar violation?Unlikely, but perhaps not impossible.

Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello?

Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.Cam Newton insisted Carolina Panthers only had themselves to blame after they fell to a 24-10 defeat to Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. REPORT: Denver win Super Bowl All the details of Broncos 24-10 win Quarterback Newton was sacked six times in his first Super Bowl appearance, completing only 18 of 41 passes for 265 yards as a dominant defensive display saw the Broncos beat up the Panthers.  Newton, who was named the NFLs most valuable player this season, refused to make any excuses for the Panthers defeat and admitted the Broncos were worthy winners.  Cam Newton was sacked seven times by Denver I dont know what you want me to say. They made more plays than us, and thats what it came down to, he said.We dropped balls. We turned the ball over, gave up sacks, threw errant passes. Thats it. They scored more points than we did.Head coach Ron Rivera called on the Panthers to bounce-back from their Super Bowl defeat and to take heart from the Broncos 43-8 Super Bowl loss to Seattle Seahawks in New Jersey in 2014.  Highlights of the Carolina Panthers against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 Weve talked about getting to the mountain peak and obviously were at the top of the mountain but were not at the peak, Rivera said. Cheap Adidas Authentic Hockey Jerseys.  I told our guys ... this is the same team (Denver Broncos) that a couple of years ago got beat in New York. So we have an opportunity to grow and learn from this experience and give ourselves an opportunity to get back here. Peyton Manning secured his second Super Bowl ring in what could be his final game before retiring Panthers defensive end Kony Ealy, who tied the Super Bowl record with three sacks and became the first player to record multiple sacks and an interception in a Super Bowl, echoed Riveras thoughts. You just have to come back and fight next year, Ealy said. It sucks, but at the end of the day, I cant dwell on it. The better team won. They showed up, they played. They didnt make mistakes, we did make mistakes. We cant do that. Its a process. We will learn from this and get back. We will look to get at this again next year. Also See: Broncos win Super Bowl Manning to consider future Broncos 24 Panthers 10 recap NFL video ' ' '
