TORONTO - Judging from first impressions, Toronto FC has added style and substance on defence in one fell swoop.Newcomer Damien Perquis, a French-born Polish international, will likely partner with Scottish veteran Steven Caldwell in what could be a hard-nosed centre back pairing.Hes a leader. Hes aggressive, Toronto head coach Greg Vanney said of the former Real Betis defender. Hes a guy who doesnt give away a lot of space to attackers, he gets tight. Hes challenging balls that are coming into forwards.Hes sort of a no-nonsense fellow, Vanney added of Perquis. Hes a guy whos definitely going to have presence when theres time to have presence on the attackers. Thats part of our strategy — we dont want to concede space this year, we want to take away space and look to get the ball back as soon as we can.The 30-year-old Perquis has flair off the pitch as well. Resembling a younger version of French actor Tcheky Karyo (The Missing) he met the media Monday looking like he had just walked off a Milan runway with am oversized scarf casually arranged around his neck.On that score, he will blend well with the 34-year-old Caldwell, a fashion plate of his own off the field. The six-foot-one 165-pound Perquis played for Troyes, Saint-Etienne and Sochaux in France before moving to Spain to sign with Real Betis ahead of the 2012-13 season.Of Polish decent through his grandmother, Perquis has won 13 caps for the Polish national team.Hes happy to be wanted after falling off the radar with his Spanish club, which was dealing with relegation and financial issues.I dont play and it was very difficult for me there, the former Real Betis vice-captain said in English. So I will enjoy my job and I will take pleasure doing what I love the most in my life. Now Im here to help the club to get to the playoffs at the end of the season.Perquis, who arrived in Toronto last Thursday, has not played since a Copa del Rey game in mid-December.He got a heads-up on MLS from friends like French midfielder Vincent Nogueira of the Philadelphia Union and New England Revolution forward Charlie Davis.He (Davis) said Bro, you must be here because the new football is here, recalled Perquis, who speaks French, English, Spanish and a little Polish. So I said OK.Seeing Torontos well-appointed training centre sealed the deal.Toronto was thin at centre back last season and the cupboard got a little more bare in the off-season when Doneil Henry joined West Ham United. That left Toronto with just Caldwell and Nick Hagglund, a rookie last season.The addition of Perquis, Eriq Zavaleta (acquired from Seattle for a second-round draft pick) and draft choices Clement Simonin and Skylar Thomas gives Toronto the six centre backs it wants to stock its MLS and USL Pro rosters. Toronto FC II will make its debut in the USL Pro League this season.For GM Tim Bezbatchenko, bringing Perquis on board represents one of Torontos bigger off-season moves.Im over-the-moon excited about having Damien on our roster, he said. Because this league is hard and theres a lot of travel. People will get injured. You need leaders, people with experience and thats what Damien brings.___Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Joe Klecko Jets Jersey . - The CJ2K era is over in Tennessee, just the latest step by the Titans in their franchise makeover.

Matt Forte Jets Jersey . -- With the season on the line once more in Oakland, Justin Verlander pitched another Game 5 gem. WASHINGTON -- The NFLs willingness to reduce the amount of extra money owners want up front -- from US$1 billion to $800 million -- isnt enough to produce a new labour deal, the head of the players union said Wednesday, insisting that the league hasnt offered to turn over enough financial data. Both sides spoke much more openly about money matters Wednesday than they have since they entered mediation Feb. 18. With the collective bargaining agreement set to expire Friday, they clearly are far apart on how to divide more than $9 billion in annual revenues. On his way into the 14th session at the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash said the issue of financial transparency -- a key sticking point -- "really should be behind us." "Weve made more information available in the course of this negotiation than has ever been made available in decades of collective bargaining with the NFLPA," Pash said. "Far more information. And weve offered to make even more information (available), including information that we do not disclose to our own clubs." But when NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith left for the day after about eight hours of talks, he called the data the NFL offered to provide "utterly meaningless." It was rejected, the union said, because it didnt include material requested nearly two years ago by Smith in a letter to Commissioner Roger Goodell. "Has it gotten everything it wants? Evidently not. Have we offered to provide more? Absolutely," Pash said Wednesday evening. "And is it a subject that were prepared to discuss? Absolutely." Under the old CBA, owners received an immediate $1 billion for operating expenses before splitting remaining revenues with players; at the outset of negotiations, the NFL sought an additional $1 billion off the top. "Just to be absolutely clear, the information that was offered wasnt what we asked for," Smith said, "and, according to our investment bankers and advisers, they told us that information would be utterly meaningless in determining whether to write an $800 million check to the National Football League" in each year of a new CBA. "We have requested access to fully audited financial statements since May 2009," Smith said. "We believe that is the appropriate information to analyze the leagues request to write a multibillion check to the owners." In a letter dated May 18, 2009 -- a copy of which was obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press -- Smith asked Goodell to "provide audited financial statements concerning the operations of the 32 clubs and the league." Smith attached a list of 10 categories of information he sought, including: -- total operating income; -- total operating expenses, such as player costs, team expenses, sales and marketing expenses, game expenses, salaries/payments to owners; -- profit from operations; -- net income; -- cash and investment assets. In the letter, Smith noted the owners push to expand the regular season from 16 games to 18 as one reason "this information is critical in understanding the fair cost/compenssation model for players and teams.dddddddddddd" In Minneapolis, meanwhile, the NFLPA asked the federal judge, who ruled in its favour in a case involving TV contracts, to release information that the NFL wants kept confidential. U.S. District Court judge David Doty sided with the players last week, saying the league illegally set up $4 billion in payments from networks -- money the union argued was collected to fund a lockout. Wednesdays move seemed to be a reminder to the league of two important points -- the possibility of legal action if no new CBA is reached, and the unions insistence on transparency. The NFLPA said in its filing that the NFL hasnt explained why material should be sealed and that the league hasnt co-operated with the unions attempt to propose limited redactions to protect third-party information only. "The NFL cannot be permitted to comment publicly about these proceedings and then turn around to embrace a cloak of confidentiality that thwarts the publics right to know," union lawyers wrote. The league said it would respond to the filing. In Washington, Pash didnt reveal any specifics of the leagues offer of financial information. But a person familiar with the negotiations told the AP that the NFL offered to turn over five years of league-wide profitability data to the union. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because mediator George Cohen told participants not to publicly discuss details. According to the person who spoke to the AP, the NFLs proposal to the union included: --audited league-wide profitability data with dollar figures from 2005-09 that wouldnt show information on a club-by-club basis; --the number of teams that have seen a shift in profitability in that span; --an independent auditor to examine the data. As far back as 2009, Smith told Goodell: "As you know, the NFLPA does not have access to a wide range of information that is directly relevant to the contention that the current CBA fails to address the owners concerns." "For example," the letter said, "the NFL and the teams do not provide the NFLPA with their audited financial statements detailing the profit (loss) information for the teams. We also lack the information to discern the profits (losses) per regular season games, the profit per team per playoff game and other fixed financial non-player costs." The CBA dates to 2006, but owners exercised an opt-out clause in 2008. The deal was set to expire last week, before two extensions pushed the cutoff to the end of Friday. Goodell was joined by three members of the owners 10-person labour committee: Art Rooney II of the Pittsburgh Steelers, John Mara of the New York Giants, and Clark Hunt of the Kansas City Chiefs. More owners are expected to attend on Thursday. If a deal isnt reached by Friday, the sides could agree to another extension. Or talks could break off, leading to, possibly, a lockout by owners or antitrust lawsuits by players. "The commissioner said talking is better than litigating. Talking is better than, you know, going to DEFCON 3 or whatever term Ive heard thrown around," Pash said. "So lets keep at it."
