year as he guided the Moosehead

CHICAGO -- A Northwestern University basketball player is suing the school and the NCAA in federal court, claiming the associations transfer regulations violate antitrust laws. Barry Bonds Jersey .In the federal lawsuit filed Monday, John Vassar said Northwestern harassed him and made other efforts to force his transfer and take away his athletic scholarship. Vassers lawsuit is seeking class-action status and wants the NCAA to change rules preventing players from transferring to other Division I schools without losing eligibility to sit out for a year.Vasser said he received offers but only if he could play right away, which he couldnt due to NCAA rules.Vassars attorney, Steve Berman, called the current NCAA transfer rules a destructive double standard, saying that students who arent athletes are eligible for new scholarships when they transfer without waiting a year. Berman said coaches often transfer schools with pay raises.The NCAA needs to level the playing field for these thousands of kids who face undue punishment under its senseless bylaws, he said.Northwestern Vice President for University Relations Al Cubbage said the school doesnt believe Vassars lawsuit has legal merit.We will defend the university vigorously, Cubbage said in a statement Tuesday. The NCAA didnt immediately respond to a request for comment.This isnt the first lawsuit against the Indianapolis-based NCAA alleging it violates antitrust laws by forcing non-graduate players in sports including football and basketball to sit out a year after transferring schools. Former Weber State football player Devin Pugh sued in November 2015 and former Northern Illinois punter Peter Deppe sued in March. Both said the NCAAs transfer rules violate federal antitrust laws.In August 2015, the National Labor Relations Board blocked a historic bid by Northwestern football players to become the first in the nation to unionize. The board said the prospect of union and nonunion teams in college could lead to different standards at different schools. Andrew McCutchen Jersey .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Orlando Cepeda Jersey . Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. http://www.wholesalesanfranciscogiantsjerseys.com/ . Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., team took control of the game early. NEWARK, N.J. -- The Montreal Canadiens added some muscle by selecting right-winger Mike McCarron with their first choice in the NHL draft. McCarron is listed at six-foot-five, 228 pounds and would provide the Habs with much-needed size up front. The Michigan native, selected 25th overall, has been compared to Milan Lucic, the Boston Bruins forward who has given the Habs headaches in recent years. McCarron is thought to be a potential third-liner with some scoring upside. He played with the U.S. National Team Development Program, with whom he scored 11 goals and had 18 assists in 49 games last season. His Canadian Hockey League rights belong to the London Knights, but its possible McCarron could go the college route. He signed a letter of intent with the Western Micchigan Broncos, who are headed by former NHL coach Andy Murray. Willie McCovey Jersey. . The Canadiens had three more picks in the second round. With their 34th overall choice, the Habs picked centre Jacob de la Rose. He is listed at 6-2, 176 pounds and had six goals and six assists in 38 games for Leksand in the Swedish Division 2 league. Two picks later, the Canadiens selected the first goalie of the draft, Zachary Fucale of the Halifax Mooseheads. The Quebec native posted a 2.35 goals against average in 55 games last year as he guided the Mooseheads to the Memorial Cup. With the 55th overall pick, the team grabbed Artturi Lehkonen, who played last year in the Finnish Elite League. The five-foot-nine, 163 pound left-winger had 14 goals and 16 assists in 45 games. China Jerseys WholesaleWholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
