AUSTIN, Texas -- A Texas appeals court has rejected Lance Armstrongs attempts to block an arbitration panel from reviewing $12 million in bonuses paid to him by a company that wants its money back, a setback for the cyclist who is fighting multiple legal battles that could strip him of his personal fortune. The Dallas-based Fifth Court of Appeals temporarily halted the case at Armstrongs request in March, but ruled on Thursday it doesnt have jurisdiction at this stage of an arbitration matter. A spokesman for SCA Promotions said the ruling will allow the arbitration to proceed. The ruling was a defeat for Armstrong but not a final one. State law will allow him to appeal any final judgment if the panel rules against him. SCA Promotions wants to reopen a 2006 settlement it paid to Armstrong, and sued the cyclist after his 2013 admission to doping during his career to win the Tour de France. The arbitration panel that first approved the settlement agreed to reconsider the case, prompting Armstrong to ask the state courts to intervene. Armstrong attorney Tim Herman did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursdays ruling. SCA and Armstrong have been battling since 2005, when the company first tried to withhold the bonus money and sought to prove he doped. Despite producing some of the most serious doping allegations at the time, SCA ultimately agreed to pay Armstrong. Armstrongs attorneys insist state law doesnt allow SCA to reopen the original settlement, which included a clause that said "no party may challenge, appeal or attempt to set aside" the payment and that it was "fully and forever binding." But given Armstrongs doping admission and SCAs claims that it reached the settlement only because of fraudulent efforts by Armstrong, the arbitration panel agreed to consider the companys case for repayment. The appeals court said it cant step in until there is a final judgment from the arbitration panel. "As a general matter, an arbitration must be complete before appellate review is appropriate," the court wrote in its opinion. Armstrong has faced several lawsuits since admitting last year that he used steroids and other performance-enhancers to win the Tour de France every year from 1999-2005. He has settled cases with the London-based Sunday Times and Nebraska-based Acceptance Insurance. Armstrong settled with Acceptance, which paid him $3 million in bonuses similar to SCA, hours before he was scheduled to be questioned under oath. He also is facing a federal whistleblower lawsuit, as the government wants to recover more than $30 million the U.S. Postal Service paid to Armstrongs teams. Potential penalties in that case could be as high as $100 million. Larry Johnson Jersey . And, just for good measure, lets say the lottery team finishes the game short-handed because two starters come down with the very same injury. Mecole Hardman Chiefs Jersey .That sight softened the blow of what ended up as a 4-3 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.Knowing their teammate was fine after a scary headfirst fall in the opening minute of the game helped calm the Maple Leafs. http://www.thechiefsshoponline.com/Yout ... fs-jersey/. The team reported the signing on its website Thursday, but said Friday the deal was off in "a mutual parting of the ways that had to do with the language of the contract. Juan Thornhill Womens Jersey . The (11-11-4) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 26 points. Fifth place Dallas and sixth-seeded Nashville also have 26 points, but the Stars have three games in hand on Winnipeg while Nashville has two. Tyreek Hill Jersey . Subway workers in Rio de Janeiro, meanwhile, were holding an assembly to vote on whether they would strike to demand higher wages, threatening to disrupt transportation. By late Tuesday night there was no announcement of their decision.TORONTO - Asked how many managers he has worked under at Toronto FC, 21-year-old defender Doneil Henry paused and thought for a while.I want to say six, he said finally.Henry, amazingly the longest-serving player currently at the MLS club, has played for Preki, Nick Dasovic, Aron Winter, Paul Mariner, Ryan Nelsen and Greg Vanney since making his debut in 2010.The young Canadian international, like many of his teammates, sees talent on the current Toronto FC roster. But too many times, he has seen the team chop and change players in a bid for a quick fix.On Tuesday, as players met the media for the final time this season after missing the playoffs with an 11-15-8 record and finishing seventh in the Eastern Conference, one after another made a plea for stability and the chance to build on the existing foundation.Ive seen it happen here for as long as Ive been here, where theyve changed the roster completely, said Henry, sitting next to English veteran Bradley Orr. Theres quality in the changing room. Theres young players that are coming through the academy and showing well.If we can just keep those players and some of the older guys like Brad to nurture them, Im sure well have more than a good team to compete in the playoffs. Every year with a changed team, its been really hard. Top teams, theyve been together for more than three, four seasons.Its a long-distance race, its not a sprint, added veteran midfielder Dwayne De Rosario. We made a step forward. Now its about keeping the team together and forming a foundation so that in the years coming, well be contending for championships, echoed midfielder Jonathan Osorio. Goalie Joe Bendik, the teams player rep, says little during the season. And he chose his words carefully Tuesday, nailing exactly what was needed and was not needed.This club has had too many players in and out, to begin with, he said.A couple more weapons or a little more depth may be all thats needed, Bendik suggested.Ironically the need for time to bed in new talent was something Nelsen had preached from Day 1 since his roster was enriched this season with the likes of Jermain Defoe, Michael Bradley and Gilberto.Nelsen said it would take time for the team to take root. He just didnt get it.It has been a glass half-full, half-empty season for Toronto. The club set single-season franchise records for wins (11) and points (41) and seemed destined for the playoffs for the first time. But injuries to key personnel and a string of poor results in the second half of the season made for another disappointing end.The players took responsibility, but also saw light at the end of the tunnel.Theres teams in those playoffs that arent as good as Toronto FC, in my opinion, said Orr. But theyve got players who have been in and around the league, know what it takes to win in this league.When that penny does finally drop with this group, which I think is very possible that it will happen very soon, I think theyll be a force to be reckoned with because theyve got a fantastic mix of good young players with a little bit of experience. While 14 players spoke Tuesday, Defoe and Bradley were both absent. They had dates with doctors in England and New York, respectiively.ddddddddddddDefoe, who is pondering surgery for a persistent groin injury, left with a question mark over his head. In a story published in the Guardian on Tuesday, he seems unsure of his future. He likes Toronto but was hurt by comments from MLSE boss Tim Leiweke questioning his commitment. The English striker led the team in scoring with 11 goals in 19 games but missed 15 more through injury or suspension after his body broke down due to back-to-back seasons in England and North America.When healthy, he proved he can score a bucketful of goals in MLS. Toronto went 6-0-2 when he scored.But his body let him down. Defoe last scored July 16 and played just 387 minutes in the 18 league games since, seeing action in just six.Almost to a man, the Toronto players brought in front of the media Tuesday spoke warmly about Defoe as a teammate and said they hoped he would be back.Captain Steven Caldwell, who said he expected Defoe to be back, also talked of the need for more mental toughness and to grind out points when things werent going well.I felt we were a little bit easy to beat at times, he said.Caldwell said while there is good unity and camaraderie among players, the squad has to reach a point where it is comfortable enough to show real honesty in the dressing room.He pointed to past clubs — winning teams — he had been on where you could tell people what you think, they could take it the right way and they could move forward. And we have to grow to achieve that in this locker-room. And it only really comes from winning.We have to be a little more honest with each other, demand a lot more from each other out on the training field and accept that when somebody tells you something, its not a criticism or a slight against your character, its to make you a better player and to make the team ultimately better.Caldwell did not elaborate. But his words evoked memories of an exchange with the fiery Bradley after a win over Chivas USA in September, a discussion that continued back into the dressing room. Both players downplayed the exchange later. Orr, who said he doubted he would be back next season, says he leaves with nothing but good memories about the club and league. Except for the refereeing.Some of the officiating has been shocking, said Orr.Vanney, who is set to meet the media Wednesday along with GM Tim Bezbatchenko, was 2-6-2 at the helm after Nelsen, who was fired along with five assistant coaches after a 9-9-6 start.Vanney, who has been told he will be back next season, was dropped in the deep end without a coaching staff but won kudos from players for his communication and clarity.The club has issues on and off the field.Leiweke, the outgoing president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, promised the soccer team would make the playoffs in 2014. It didnt and, despite record attendance, the team will lose money this year because of the investment in players like Defoe and Bradley.On the plus side, the team has three first-round draft picks in 2015, its own selections obtained from Chivas USA and Portland. A pick acquired from Seattle in the Stefan Frei deal is expected to go to FC Dallas.---Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter ' ' '
