CGames: Commonwealth Games chiefs 'actively exploring' Durban 2022 alternatives

Durban has been stripped of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has exclusively confirmed to insidethegames.

Liverpool's hopes of hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games have been boosted with Durban set to bow out over financial issues.

Reports had suggested that the CGF was weighing up its options and that a decision was expected this week, but on Monday afternoon reports across the country began calling the news.

Also add the fact that the Patriots will have tight end Rob Gronkowski back, the offense has the potential to be unstoppable. For now, the Patriots are dominating the market, and they are gathering all the pieces to continue their dynasty in the NFL.

Despite these mishaps‚ Louise Martin‚ CGF president‚ said: "The CGF will continue to have an open dialogue with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee and the Republic of South Africa and remains committed to realising the shared ambitions of a future Commonwealth Games in Africa".

Liverpool has offered to host the games.

Gideon Sam, president of the South African Olympic committee, told Reuters: "This is a huge disappointment for us and for the whole African continent but without the necessary government guarantees, we couldn't move on".

Harry Kane could be out for the rest of the season
The icing on the cake was a first goal from open play in the 79th minute for Spurs' under-achieving striker Janssen. Son's third came in stoppage time, a volley that slipped through the clutches of hapless Millwall keeper Tom King.

But the CGF may want to avoid consecutive Games in Australia as the Gold Coast is due the event next year.

Mbalula said of South Africa's concerns over hosting the event: "We gave it our best shot but we can't go beyond".

The South African city was awarded the Games in 2015, but a review by the Commonwealth Games Federation reported "a significant departure from the undertakings" made in the bid. "If the country says we don't have this money, we can't [host the Games]".

LB Lawrence Timmons agrees to 2-year deal with Dolphins
The durable Timmons has 981 career tackles, 35.5 sacks and 12 interceptions in 10 National Football League seasons. Timmons has played in 120 consecutive regular-season games, the longest active streak among linebackers.

"It does not look like we will find each other", he said.
