Welcome to The Matthew Gillett Gallery

After years travelling the world, painting, surfing and learning, I returned to the south coast of NSW to pursue my vision to open and curate my own gallery.

The inspiration behind this vision has been to expose the depth of artistic talent that exists in my beloved south coast and to really showcase how beautiful this area is with an inspiring location. I wanted to help these artists exhibit alongside other artist, local and international, and help them further their own artistic ambitions.

It’s difficult to believe that the Jags could pay $7 million up front to a guy who really hasn’t been productive and is coming off two injury-hit years without getting any team options tacked onto the end of the contract.

WR Jordy Nelson, Raiders Grade: C Even typing Raiders next to Jordy Nelson’s name seems weird, but after the Packers cut their longtime wideout earlier this week, it seemed likely he would find interest elsewhere.

We are 100 percent certain Foltynewicz quickly forgot about the arbitration loss, because later in the day, his wife Brittany gave birth to their son, Michael Jett Foltynewicz. The couple shared the news on Instagram.

In case you’re wondering, that $100,000 difference in Foltynewicz’s arbitration case was the smallest amount in an MLB case this year. While it seems such a trivial amount could have been easily resolved with a compromise, according to the Journal-Constitution, the Braves have a file-and-trial arbitration policy that doesn’t involve negotiation.

Fanatics owner Michael Rubin after Panthers

Another bidder has emerged in the race to buy the Carolina Panthers: Michael Rubin, the owner of sports apparel retailer Fanatics.

Sources say Rubin — whose primary home is in Pennsylvania and who owns a stake in the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils and the Premier League team Crystal Palace — is considered a serious bidder in the race to buy the first NFL team up for sale in 3 ? years.

When reached Sunday morning, Rubin declined to comment.

The Bengals will inherit the final three Womens Ty Montgomery Jersey seasons of Glenn’s deal, including his $9.25 million base salary and $2 million roster bonus due next week. Of his base salary, $1.5 million is already fully guaranteed and another $6.5 million will become fully guaranteed on Friday. The Bengals will also have Glenn under contract for non-guaranteed base salaries of $7.25 million (2018) and $7.5 million (2019), as well as $2 million roster bonuses each season.

The New York Giants have released cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the team announced Sunday.

He insisted he mishandled the events leading to his suspension in October, both in how he acted during a game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 8 and two days later when McAdoo told him he would be inactive for a trip to Denver.

To be honest, Coach called me up and he said some things and I kind of didn’t agree with it and I handled it the wrong way, Rodgers-Cromartie said then. At the end of the day, that’s on me. So the suspension, I take that. All I can do is try to work back to get in good grace with the guys. I’m just glad that they didn’t let this turn them from me and they accepted me and I’m just back working, man.

Janoris Jenkins remains the only proven cornerback on the Giants, with troubled Eli Apple still on the roster and potentially slated to replace Rodgers-Cromartie in the lineup.

Blue Jays injury updates: Marcus Stroman, Troy Tulowitzki still uncertain for Opening Day

Regular-season baseball is less than a month away and the Blue Jays have yet to see their ace pitcher or starting shortstop in live action this spring.

Shoulder inflammation has kept right-hander Marcus Stroman from making his spring debut, and Troy Tulowitzki is still nursing an ankle injury from last July.

Manager John Gibbons has been peppered with questions about the two over the last few weeks, and again on Sunday he offered little into their current status, but did reveal he doesn’t expect Tulowitzki to be in the lineup on Opening Day.

The good news for the Giants’ pitching staff is that this year’s defense is much better. Denard Span and his -27 DRS are gone. Andrew McCutchen will be patrolling right field, where he was a plus defender in a limited sample size in 2017. Evan Longoria was worth 11 DRS last year, replacing a third base carousel that cost Giants pitchers two runs. And, of course, they still have Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt and Buster Posey, who can each be Gold Glove contenders.

While all the Giants’ starters could theoretically be on this list, Samardzija gets the nod because of his 6.41 K/BB ratio, which was the fourth best in baseball last season.

Even with his home run problem, he recorded a very respectable 3.61 FIP. If nothing else, he could improve if his ERA falls to what it “should” be.

“They’re just not trying that hard,” Jansen said in an interview with FanRag Sports. “I think they are competing for the championship of revenue (profit). I think they are trying to see who can have the most revenue. I think they don’t care about the trophy. No disrespect, but we want to see more teams be competitive.

“There’s one team competing for the title in the NL East,” Jansen said, alluding to the Nationals.

Starting pitchers like Jake Arrieta, Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb remained unsigned, joining position players Carlos Gonzalez and Mike Moustakas. Jansen feels as though those caliber players should currently be on rosters.seahawks_023_f1f38250b32a563d-180x180

Nick Young appears to be rubbing off on Stephen Curry

Nick Young is famous for a lot. He was engaged to Iggy Azalea, he is the subject of a meme, and he will never outgrow the nickname “Swaggy P.”

Gordon broke in as a shortstop with the Los Angeles Dodgers and made himself into a Gold Glove second baseman with the help of infield coach Perry Hill in Miami. Now he’ll have to adjust to a whole new world view in center field. Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto, the quintessential free thinker, saw the dynamic potential of a Gordon-Jean Segura pairing at the top of the order, and the Statcast numbers convinced him that Gordon had the raw materials to play outfield. Gordon’s sprint speed of 29.7 feet per second is fourth in MLB behind that of Minnesota’s Byron Buxton, Cincinnati’s Billy Hamilton and Cleveland’s Bradley Zimmer — all center fielders — and he has the capacity to outrun the occasional bad jump or read.

“He saw the doc and our trainers and took the rest of the night off.”

Joerger, 43, is in his second season as the Kings coach and is 47-84 with Sacramento. Turner said Joerger had been “feeling great” before the game.

“He’s a young coach in good health, a lot of energy and he exerts it during the game and in practice,” Turner said. “It’s just an incident that happened and, unfortunately it was when the lights were on.

Thunder center Steven Adams put it best with his reaction to Andre Roberson’s ugly injury.

“It’s s—. It’s real s—,” Adams said after the Thunder’s 121-108 win over the Pistons. “He’s a huge part of our team and why we win. It’s a huge blow to us, but we’re just gonna have to rely on some other players to step up.”lions_054

Russell Westbrook gives wandering spectator shove after Thunder loss

Moments after the Nuggets quashed the Thunder’s fourth-quarter comeback at the horn, OKC point guard Russell Westbrook came face to face with a Denver fan who somehow made his way onto the court without security stopping him.

The government needs to get out of our doctor’s offices and our pharmacies and quit attempting to practice medicine by lumping all persons into the same category.None of their other three safeties has proved up to the job, and they can do better than Keo and Pleasant.a 2015 summer interview with of .com, was asked about who he had already studied for the 2015 .their effort, the way that they pursued that play the way coach always talks about, really made that play.

The biggest concerns with Hill are that he has dealt with a number of injuries in the past, and he’s in the first year of a three-year contract worth $57 million. It’s a big commitment to a 31-year-old who is in the midst of one of the worst seasons of his career, although moving on from the Kings could be what he needs to return to last season’s form.

Hood’s talent has never come into question. He’s a silky smooth scorer who can get hot and fill up the points column on any given night. He hasn’t, however, progressed quite as much as expected over the last two seasons, due in large part to an unfortunate run of injuries.

By the ZiPS projections — and I agree with the computer on this one — two franchises stand at or near the brink of completing their rebuilds. Just as no analyst is perfect, no rebuilding team does a perfect job, but these teams have gotten themselves near relevance without making major blunders that derailed their long-term plans.

He had a breakout season in 2014, batting .327 with 20 homers, 97 RBI and 23 steals in 156 games. He was working on another good year in 2015 when he hurt his right shoulder diving for a ball in Minnesota.

The two-time All-Star needed two surgeries to fix his shoulder and played in just 11 games in 2016, missing Cleveland’s run to the World Series. He appeared to be back on track last year before he injured his ankle while chasing a fly ball to left field during a game on Aug. 8.

Brantley made a surprising return late last season and was selected for the playoff roster against New York, but went just 1 for 11 in the five-game series. Despite the string of injuries, Cleveland decided to pick up his $11.5 million option for 2018.lions_126

Lonzo Ball’s ‘ugly’ shot is starting to fall

Lonzo sinks back-to-back 3sLonzo Ball knocks down 3-pointers on consecutive possessions for the Lakers.

Ball has appeared to be very comfortable, both on and off the court, for some time now, and it is showing in his game, as he has knocked down three or more treys in five of his past seven games.

“I can shoot,” said Ball, who’ll look to continue his hot shooting as the Lakers face the Heat in Miami on Thursday night. “I just missed at the beginning of the year. I told you I was going to keep shooting, and now they are going in.”

“With the long list of so many great players that have come through this league, in the history of this league, for me to be the only [person] in a category, I think it’s pretty cool,” James said after the Cavaliers’ 129-123 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday. “It’s pretty cool. I take pride in my game. I’ve always taken pride in being a triple threat since I started playing basketball, and I never wanted to be labeled as a scorer.

“I always wanted to be labeled as just an all-around basketball player; and I get more gratification out of the assists more than anything, because to get my guys great looks or they’re knocking down shots, that means a lot to me.”

“I can’t wait to get out there and share my ideas.”

As part of the university’s Askwith Forums, Brown is scheduled to engage in a one-on-one discussion with Harvard Graduate School of Education professor Jal Mehta.

The HGSE said the discussion will touch on Brown’s basketball journey. But other topics will include institutionalized sport and education, inequality by design, the role sports play in society and why Brown thinks athletes can — and should — be ready to use their celebrity and prominence to speak up and advocate for change.

On the night before his visit, Brown wasn’t giving any hints as to what he might say.

“You’ll have to be there to see it,” Brown said.

This is Year 5 for Antetokounmpo. A player with Antetokounmpo’s devastating gifts should have begun to iron out his outside shot. But because the Greek Freak is such a devastating finisher, it’s masked his inability to shoot.49ers_182

Super Bowl 2018 prop bet: Pink’s national anthem performance goes UNDER 2:00

Award-winning singer Pink performed her rendition of the national anthem to open Super Bowl 52. Sportsbooks offered a chance to bet on the over/under for the performance, with the total time set at two minutes exactly.

Pink ended up going UNDER, with a time of 1:52. She is dealing with the flu, and one has to wonder if that impacted her performance.

The Jaguars’ upset win over the Broncos — a team that owned the Pats in the 1990s — cleared the path for New England’s second Super Bowl appearance. Despite a spirited effort, Desmond Howard’s back-breaking, 99-yard kickoff return proved to be too much for Drew Bledsoe and New England to overcome, giving Brett Favre his first — and only — Super Bowl ring.

Watching the Eagles dispatch the Patriots in the Super Bowl, I guess I should have felt schadenfreude or unbridled delight over the Patriots losing, especially since I live in New England. Mostly, though, I was pissed.

“He’s day-to-day and we’ll know more about the day-to-day tomorrow,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said Friday after the team practice. “He’s going to be out for a bit anyway, so it’s an opportunity to see Willy (Nylander) or (Patrick) Marleau or whoever will play in the middle or someone else. We have guys on the (American Hockey League) Marlies dying for an opportunity too. We’ll sort it out as we go.”

This is the third time Matthews, who leads the Maple Leafs in scoring with 28 goals and 22 assists, has been injured this season. A suspected lower-back injury and a concussion sidelined him a total of 10 games. The Maple Leafs are 6-4 without Matthews.

“It’s sports; (injuries) are all part of the business,” Babcock said. “You get to work, get back as fast as you can. He’s a passionate guy who wants to play. I’m not very concerned about him, he’s fine.”jaguars_094-223x223

The Blazers have won four of five, with the only loss a blowout to the Jazz on Feb. 11.

After Mitchell trimmed the Portland lead to 53-49, McCollum hit two 3-pointers and a runner to spark a 13-2 run. After the Jazz trimmed it back to 11, Lillard’s crossover stepback jumper gave the Blazers an 80-64 lead entering the final period.

The Blazers are looking to follow a pattern of strong finishes as they reached the playoffs with a 17-11 closing record in 2016 and an 18-8 post-All-Star Game mark in 2017.

Joe Kaiser: Towns has been playing slightly better this season and leads the league in double-doubles, but I can’t get past his lack of impact in terms of steals and assists compared to Antetokounmpo. Not to cop out, but I don’t think it really matters which one of this pair finishes higher on the Player Rater because it will be very close one way or another.

In rotisserie leagues you have to consider whether 3-pointers and rebounds (Towns) or steals and assists (Antetokounmpo) matter more to your team. Steals and assists are typically more difficult to find on the waiver wire, so I’ll continue to lean toward The Greek Freak.

According to Yahoo! Sports columnist Dan Wetzel, the tradition started back in 2003, when the NFL entered into an apparel deal with Reebok. That agreement stated that the league’s coaches would be required to wear the company’s gear. Belichick scoffed at the idea that coaches should be models on the sideline and decided to wear the most simple option: a grey hoodie.

In true Belichick fashion, the coach wouldn’t simply acknowledge Wetzel’s discovery, instead dancing around the explanation without giving a true answer.

Belichick wouldn’t confirm the genesis of the story when I asked him about it in 2012. He didn’t deny it either or stop the line of questioning or explain much of anything though.

He just, as is his way, changed the subject, claiming he liked the hooded sweatshirt for practical purposes.

The style has become as synonymous with Belichick as his short, grumpy press conferences. The hoodie has attracted a cult following. There are those who track his record in different color sweatshirts and stores that market the simple garb just by attaching his name to it.

Even the Patriots’ team website sells a “Belichick Hoodie,” though it only comes in one color, navy, and you’ll have to cut the sleeves off yourself.bears_041-223x223

Kelce spent a lot of time watching pitchers throw their side sessions and said there was plenty he could take away from watching them interact with catchers.

Baseball is an awesome sport, Kelce said. I’ve just been picking up some of what goes on between the pitcher and catcher because I think there are a lot of similarities between the mental chess game going on there as there is with me and Carson (Wentz) kind of assessing defenses and stuff like that.

New Phillies manager Gape Kapler said that he spoke with Kelce separately and discussed the rapport Eagles players had with head coach Doug Pederson and the coaching staff.

We enter the final intermission of the night with Aliev in first place, followed by Chan and Rippon. With Hanyu, Chen, Uno, and many other top contenders coming up, this event could come right down to the wire.

Alexei Bychenko of Israel skated to the Jewish folk song Hava Nagila, and had close to the same quality run he did in the team event. A few minor miscues aside, Bychenko managed 84.13 to qualify comfortably.

Pujols lightened up considerably when the subject turned to Ohtani, the Japanese pitcher-hitter. The two took batting practice together in Orange County last week.

I gave him a couple words of wisdom. I know it’s going to be a little bit different with the language barrier, Pujols said. But I told him that he knows how to play baseball. He just needs to go out and play.

Hopefully he can do great on both sides, because if he can help us with his bat, too, it will be awesome because we don’t have many lefties in our starting lineup.

Pujols is 32 hits shy of 3,000 for his career. It’s awesome, he said. I know it’s there. I’m not going to ignore it, but I don’t play for that. I play to put rings on my fingers, I haven’t had one in seven years. Hopefully, this is the year we can get one.

Clearly, the league wants the best two teams in the league to be represented every Finals. Silver even mentioned adding more days to the season to help cut down travel even more. (This year’s NBA schedule cut back on the preseason while adding an additional week to the regular season.) However, it did not sound like any changes were imminent.bears_031

Hall of Fame first baseman Orlando Cepeda, 80, in critical condition

Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda remains hospitalized in critical condition after a cardiac event, according to the San Francisco Giants.

The team issued a statement Wednesday saying that the incident happened Monday evening and he was taken to a Bay Area hospital.

The Cepeda family asks for privacy during this time, the team said. Please keep Orlando and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Cepeda, 80, was an 11-time All-Star first baseman who played 17 seasons for six MLB teams, including the Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves, from 1958 to 1974. He was voted MVP in 1967 for the Cardinals.

The fact that Texas Tech — a program which has never won a Big 12 title of any sort — could be the one to snap Kansas’ streak is still tough to wrap your mind around, but that’s where we are. Chris Beard has the Red Raiders ranked in the top 10 and playing as well as just about any team in the country in mid-February. If they take care of business at home against Kansas on Feb. 24 and then pull off what would likely be an upset on the road over West Virginia two days later, then Texas Tech will forever be remembered as the Big 12 team that finally slayed Bill Self’s giant.

I don’t think there is any doubt about that, Taillon, 26, said at the Pirates’ spring training camp. I know people always say that when they’ve gone through something like cancer, but it really is true. I look at life differently. I’m a little more serious about things. I’m a more mature person than I was a year ago at this time.

From a surprising Cy Young finalist to World Series Game 7’s winning pitcher, we examine if 10 unexpected successes can double up this time around.

Taillon received the diagnosis in early May and had surgery. Just five weeks later, he was activated from the disabled list and pitched five scoreless innings to beat the visiting Colorado Rockies.

The best-case scenario is that it happened during the season, Taillon said. I had my teammates for support, and I had a goal of returning to help the team to serve as a distraction.royals_029
