Joy Sports’ Gary Al-Smith was on the Super Morning Show on Thursday morning to give the latest insight on the Justice Dzamefe Commission which was put together to investigate happenings that led to Ghana’s fiasco at the last World Cup. —-Sources at the Presidency tell Joy FM that the Commission’s report will be finally received next week, together with that of the Sole Commissioner’s report as well.This is three months after the commission finished work in December and a month after the commission last wrote to the Presidency, asking for time to get an audience with President Mahama to submit their report. Why was the Dzamefe Commission report delayed?Officially, because of the change of the Chief of Staff – that’s the official reason. However, political watchers say a more accurate response is due to a lack of political will.In my opinion, the President has not taken the commission seriously. Months after the commission started its work, I can tell you that the President had not even spoken to the lead commissioner, which is very abnormal.Also, sources say that months into commission’s work, basic things like per diems and other needs hadn’t been paid. This was really unfortunate.Why the President has not been proactive on the commission has been baffling, because it is not like anyone will be punished. Remember, the Commission of Inquiry was only an inquisitorial body, not prosecutorial or adversarial – it was not meant to punish anyone. This failure to receive the report on time has been a huge political opportunity missed, although the Presidency may not admit it. That’s because he could have taken the commission’s report at the start of the year and made a strong political statement with it. And also, why didn’t the President mention it in his State of the Nation’s address? That would have got him at least three points!But it’s clear he did not want to ruffle the Afcon 2015 campaign and after the team reached the final, it was again clear the Commission’s work was always going to be redundant, which is sad.Whoever advises the President on these sporting issues, I am strongly of the opinion that they got it wrong – again. It is true that for democracy to function properly, we need commissions to learn from our mistakes, but these are costly to the taxpayer and so if the Presidency wastes time in implementation, we have to ask questions about such waste of time. Not just time, but cost as well. A few sources at the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation say about 80,000 cedis went down the drain because of loss of advertising revenue. Imagine what such an amount could have done.Bottom line is this: the President failed to milk this great opportunity to tell Ghanaians that he is a man who finishes what he starts.–Gary is with the Joy Sports team and was speaking on the Super Morning Show with Nhyira Addo.
Giants GM Dave Gettleman shuts down Josh Rosen trade talk In news that will not shock anyone, Kyler Murray is favored to be the top selection in the 2019 NFL Draft.The Cardinals are reportedly expected to pick the former Oklahoma star at No. 1. Some have said it’s a near lock Murray will end up in Arizona, but general manager Steve Keim told reporters earlier this week the team has not made a decision about who it will draft. “The fact that I don’t know what we’re doing but everyone else does, that’s concerning,” Keim said. “We are not done with this process.“There are a number of players, in my opinion, and our scouts’ opinions, and our coaches’ opinion, that warrant being the first overall selection.” Related News Murray took home the Heisman Trophy last season after he threw for 4,361 yards and tallied 54 total scores. Oklahoma finished with a 12-2 record and advanced to the College Football Playoff semifinal, where it fell to Alabama.Alabama’s Quinnen Williams and Ohio State’s Nick Bosa could also go No. 1 if the Cardinals decide to trade back or pass on Murray.Here’s a complete list of betting odds for the No. 1 overall pick as well as some of the best prop bets for the 2019 NFL Draft.NFL Draft betting odds, prop bets for 2019Odds to be selected with the No. 1 pickKyler Murray-500Nick Bosa+325Quinnen Williams +600Josh Allen+2800Will Kyler Murray be the No. 1 pick?YES-600NO+450First round picks: Offense vs DefenseOffensive players+2.5 (-110)Defensive players-2.5 (-110)Number of SEC players taken in first roundOver 12.5 players-120Under 12.5 players+100Number of ACC and Big 10 players taken in first round Over 10.5 players-110Under 10.5 players-110Draft position: Dwayne HaskinsDraft position over 6.5-110Draft position under 6.5-110Draft position: Ed OliverDraft position over 8.5-110Draft position under 8.5-110Draft position: DK MetcalfDraft position over 18.5-110Draft position under 18.5-110Draft position: Drew Lock NFL Draft 2019: Why Cardinals should take Kyler Murray Draft position over 10.5-110Draft position under 10.5-110Draft position: Rashan GaryDraft position over 11.5-110Draft position under 11.5-110Draft position: Dexter LawrenceDraft position over 27.5-110Draft position under 27.5-110Odds updated on April 18.
