San Francisco?s head coach, Jim Harbaugh, says he’ll settle on his starting quarterback for this Sunday?s game on Wednesday. Colin Kaepernick has had two good starts, but will Alex Smith get to keep his job after recovering from a concussion? SOTL.com, The Voice of the Players, polled more than 138 current and former NFL players and asked their opinion as to who Jim Harbaugh should start.
60% of the players polled say that Alex Smith should be able to return as the starting quarterback of the 49ers, while 40% say to let Colin Kaepernick keep playing. Fan votes differ slightly with a 55% / 45% ratio.
The former center for the 49ers, Jeremy Newberry, weighed in on the matter on the site: ?The 49ers are blessed to have this problem,? said Newberry. ?I?ve seen posts that say Colin has to play his way out of lineup. I think it’s Alex’s job until he plays his way out of the lineup. He leads the NFL in completion percentage.?
Former Super Bowl Champion, Antonio Piece also weighed in by commenting ?It?s time for a change in SF, let the new era begin.?

The 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics will allegedly host a 72-hole individual stroke play tournament for both genders alongside standard track and field events and a selection of team sports. It?s thought that up to 30 different countries could participate in the contest, which will award the player with the lowest scores Gold, Silver and Bronze medals respectively. The last time that golf was part of the official Olympic programme was at the turn of the 20th century in 1904 in the USA.
The organisers have announced that the athletes will be competing on golf courses of varying specifications, which has led many keen followers of the sport to await the next Games with great anticipation.
?We?re over the moon that golf is yet again being considered an Olympic sport,? says a representative from Golf Store Europe. ?Not only does this allow some of the world?s greatest golfers to gain further recognition for their talents, it also raises the profile of golf as an international sport and will hopefully encourage more sports men and women, and especially the next generation, to get involved in the game at a local level.
?We?re sure that the team responsible for organising Rio 2016 will pull out all the stops to bring us a fantastic Olympic experience across the board and can?t wait to see how events unfold four years from now?.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Los Angeles-based punk band The Briggs released their new single ?Panic? today on This Is LA Records, marking the first release on their newly established independent record label.
?Panic,? which premiered over the weekend on LA?s Star 98.7, will deliver to fans the familiar punk attitude they?ve come to expect from The Briggs, but with a fresh take. ?We have no intention of rehashing anything,? says singer Joey LaRocca. ?I think we?ve successfully combined the old-school Briggs sound with the new. We have always had a diverse style ? and some people prefer some records over others ? but I really feel all Briggs fans will be able to enjoy this one.?
After a 2-year hiatus, The Briggs? return to the music scene will include a video of the single, directed by Beau Patrick Coulon, and a headlining show at House of Blues Anaheim on May 20th.
A Briggs? rep states that, while some lament the direction the industry has taken over the past few years, the band feels refreshed and rejuvenated towards the current music scene. ?I?m inspired by what’s happening currently,? says Joey, ?and feel there are a ton of amazing new bands who have a totally fresh approach to writing. There?s a resurgence of a scene that I find very exciting. For the first time in a long time, I see kids putting on house shows, basement shows, warehouses. I see groups of kids reclaiming their scene and creating an actual community again. It’s been gone for a while, but I feel like there is new generation of bands, fans and writers that are breathing life back into music.?
PRP Treatment Aids Healing of Elbow Injuries Say Researchers – Select Individuals Appear to Return To Play Quicker
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 11, 2012
As elbow injuries continue to rise, especially in pitchers, procedures to help treat and get players back in the game quickly have been difficult to come by. However, a newer treatment called platelet rich plasma (PRP) may pose hope, according to researchers presenting their findings at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine?s Specialty Day meeting in San Francisco.
?PRP therapy is a very exciting area of research and a number of questions still need to be answered, including optimal concentration, number and timing of injections, the role of white blood cells and the role of ultrasound or image guidance when performing these injections,? said lead researcher, Scott A. Crow, MD of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, California. ?Despite these questions, this study indicates that in the short term, PRP may be an effective option to successfully treat partial ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) tears in the elbow of athletes.?
The researchers followed 17 athletes with a partial UCL tear. All patients had failed conservative treatment, including rest and physical therapy. Baseline questionnaires, including the Kerlan-Jobe Shoulder and Elbow Score (KJOC Score) and Disability of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand Score (DASH Score) were completed for each patient prior to the PRP injection. Each patient underwent a single PRP injection at the ulnar collateral ligament under ultrasound guidance.
At an average follow-up of 18 weeks (range 12-46 weeks), 16 of 17 athletes had returned to play. The average time to return to play was 10 weeks (range 8-12 weeks). The average KJOC Score improved from 47 to 93, p=.0001. The average DASH Score improved from 24 to 3, p=.003. The Sports Module of the DASH questionnaire improved from 74 to 6, p=.0001.
?There is little information in the literature regarding non-surgical treatment of UCL tears. Our results show that PRP may be an option to return players to the field without having to place them under the knife,? said Crow.

The Society works closely with many other sports medicine specialists, including athletic trainers, physical therapists, family physicians, and others to improve the identification, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of sports injuries.
