    CALGARY - Jack (Jocko) Gotta, a former Canadian Football League player, coach and general manager, passed away Saturday at the age of 83. Scarpe New Balance 580 . The Stampeders said in a statement that Gotta passed away at the Bethany Care Centre in Calgary. Gotta, from Ironwood, Mich., began his CFL career with the Stampeders in 1956, playing in Calgary for four seasons. He was a CFL West all-star as a wide receiver and defensive back in 1957. He also earned all-star recognition in 1958. In 1960 he joined the Saskatchewan Roughriders, where he stayed until 1964 when he moved to the Montreal Alouettes for a season. He started his coaching career as an assistant with Saskatchewan in 1965 and moved to Ottawa in 1968. He became head coach of the Rough Riders in 1970 and led Ottawa to a Grey Cup title in 1973. In 1974, he coach the Birmingham Americans to the first and only World Football League championship. He became head coach and GM of the Stampeders in 1977 after Calgary had suffered through five straight losing seasons including a 2-12-2 mark in 1976. Within two years, the Stamps were back in the playoffs and making the first of back-to-back appearances in the West Division final. New Balance 580 Blu . Here are his mid-season NBA awards.  MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. Nike Air Presto Uomo . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. Michelle Payne, a name synonymous for sticking it to the man, has over the past 12 months defied the odds and created her own path.Payne became a worldwide sensation when she became the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup, saluting aboard 100-1 outsider Prince of Penzance, but she gained even more attention with her rogue post-race comments in which she thanked winning trainer Darren Weir for giving her a go in such a chauvinistic sport.I know some of the owners were keen to kick me off, and [senior part-owner] John Richards and Darren stuck strongly with me, Payne said after winning the Race That Stops The Nation. I put in all the effort I could and galloped him all I could because I thought he had what it takes to win the Melbourne Cup. I cant say how grateful I am to them. I want to say to everyone else, get stuffed because women can do anything and we can beat the world.With those words, Payne became more than just a champion jockey; she became a champion for womens rights, a fighter in and out of the saddle.Riding high into 2016, Payne continued to face challenges and opposition within a tough, sporting industry.Payne, 31, suffered a potentially career-ending injury in a race fall in May this year, when she was rushed for surgery to repair her torn pancreas before spending weeks in hospital.That injury and the possibility of becoming a diabetic prompted calls for her retirement,, most notably from the owners of Prince of Penzance, but the Victorian trailblazer would not be stopped and she returned to the saddle just five months later to create history once again. New Balance 574 Uomo Offerta. Returning in September, she became one of three people granted a dual licence to ride and train her own horses and she made history in October when she became the first person in Victoria to ride a runner she trains at Group level.But one year on from her amazing Melbourne Cup feat little has changed from the racing world with Payne riding in just six races during the four day carnival, two on her brothers horses and the third her own horse, Queen of Zealand, while only one woman, Katelyn Mallyon, would race for the Cup.Payne, a country girl with big dreams, doesnt regret what she said after winning the 2015 Melbourne Cup, and her determination, tenaciousness and unflappable faith that touched hearts around Australia resulted in the Ballarat native winning The Don Award presented annually to a sportsperson, who, through their achievements and example over the last 12 months, is considered to have most inspired the nation; the description suits Michelle Payne to a T.Inspired by Michelle Payne and Rogue One.
