They are the extraordinary governance reforms Parramatta hope will finally usher in a new era.Eels chairman Max Donnelly on Wednesday took a major step towards a fresh start for the club when he proposed an extraordinary ban on all former directors being voted onto the new board.In an attempt to avoid the endless bickering at administration level that sensationally brought the Eels to their knees in 2016, Donnelly also proposed all new board members pass a skills-based criteria never before mandated in the clubs history.I want a clean slate, Donnelly told AAP on Wednesday.For most clubs, the criteria is how many years of membership have you got to make you eligible to be on the board.All those old club constitutions were drawn up in a way to stop people turning up today and trying to take over the club tomorrow because they wouldve had to be a member for three years.But in this day and age, weve moved on. In other words, it will take more than knowing how to throw a spiral pass or a kick a torpedo bomb if you are to tick off on the murky world of third party deals and contract extensions.That was part of the problem, Donnelly said.A lot of people that got onto the board, theyre not used to running a company. Footballers are wonderful footballers, but not many of them can run a business because theyre not trained to.While two of the seven board members will be nominated by Parramatta Leagues Club, five will come external to the franchise and from business-centred backgrounds.Donnelly said it is a set-up not far removed from the likes of Newcastle, Wests Tigers and Gold Coast, all of whom have had to be rescued by the NRL in recent seasons.Members have until November 4 to provide feedback.Its the way of the future. You need a skills-based board. Thats what Im trying to achieve, he said.Ive also said that if youd been a director in the past, you cant be a director again going forward, which is to try and stop all the old factions.People might turn around and say thats silly, or unfair or wrong, well okay, thats why I have a consultation process, and Ill listen to what everyone says to me.The NRL is understood to have given Donnelly the green light, despite a request to veto any future changes to the clubs constitution.I resisted that, I didnt think the members of Parramatta would like that, Donnelly said.Donnelly also revealed on Wednesday that the clubs protracted contract saga with Will Hopoate had come to an end after settling the dispute last week.In another sign of the Eels pushing into a new era, Donnelly said the club is likely to search for a new major sponsor once its deal with Dyldam expires at the end of the month.

LINCOLN, Neb. -- It could be a battle of backup quarterbacks when No. 19 Nebraska hosts Maryland on Saturday.Tommy Armstrong Jr., the Cornhuskers four-year starter, didnt practice this week because of a left hamstring injury and might not play on his senior day. The Terrapins Perry Hills has been day-to-day with a left shoulder injury.If Armstrong cant go, fifth-year senior Ryker Fyfe would make his second career start. If Hills is out, the Terps starter would be Tyrrell Pigrome or Caleb Rowe.Coach Mike Riley said it could be a game-time decision for Armstrong, with consideration given to how Armstrong feels and whether there would a risk of aggravating the injury.The hamstring is a mystery, Riley said. You really dont know until you really go, and then you could make it worse. So we dont want to do that. We want to be pretty sure.Pigrome, a freshman, played the second half of last weeks 62-3 loss to Ohio State. He has appeared in nine games, starting against Minnesota on Oct. 15. Rowe, a senior, started four games last season and has appeared in all 10 games this season.Hills, who hurt his right shoulder in the third game, has been forced out of three games because of injury. Coach DJ Durkin, whose Terps (5-5, 2-5 Big Ten) need one win to be bowl-eligible , brushed off the suggestion that he could sit Hills and have him ready for a more winnable game next week at home against Rutgers.Its all a bunch of one-game seasons, Durkin said. Well determine what gives us the best chance to win on Saturday. If that means Perry is in the lineup, thats what were going to do. If its not, thats what were going to do. Thats solely based on what his health is.Nebraska (8-2, 5-2) is still alive in the Big Ten West , needing to win out and have Wisconsin lose once. Riley said Fyfe, who has played sparingly this season, looked good as he prepared for his possible start against the Terps.I was real excited and it kind of culminated in a real nice Thursday, which I consider a dress rehearsal day, Riley said. I thought he did a nice job, threw nice sharp balls, appeared very confident. The kids respond well to Ryker. Hes been around a long time and its not uncomfortable for them.ddddddddddddSome things to know as Maryland and Nebraska meet for the first time:SENIOR SWAN SONGNebraska will honor 30 seniors before the game, including punter Sam Foltz, who was killed in a car accident in July. Riley has often credited the senior class for its leadership after he took over last year. I wish I had more time with them, he said, because itll have gone too fast. Riley said a portion of the ceremony will be dedicated to Foltz.BACK TO BASICSLosses in five of the last six games -- and getting outscored 121-6 by Michigan and Ohio State the last two weeks -- prompted Durkin to run practices similar to the ones in fall camp. The Terps opened the season 4-0.Technique and effort. Its how we made great strides as a team, he said. We havent done that for the past couple of weeks... Its like were back in training camp. Teaching the guys how to play the position and how to play hard and do all the little things that make a difference.GAME BREAKERMaryland running back Ty Johnson has broken a Big Ten-best seven plays of at least 40 yards or longer in the Terps seven Big Ten games. Six of them have been runs. He could see an increased workload because of the indefinite suspension of Lorenzo Harrison.POUND THE GROUNDNebraska is 8-0 under Riley when rushing for at least 200 yards. The Huskers havent hit that mark since Oct. 1 against Illinois, but they have a good chance to do it against a Maryland team that has allowed an average of 291 yards on the ground against three ranked opponents.HOME COOKINNebraska is looking to finish 7-0 at home, which would be a notable achievement to Riley. There are lots of reasons here at Nebraska, such as the great fan base. Theyre such a part of the family. Its fun to play here, fun to win here, fun to see them enjoy the games. There is a lot of pride in that.---AP Sports Writer David Ginsburg in College Park, Maryland, contributed to this report.---More AP college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
