They had huge loan growth. Huge membership growth.His answer was simple.“Our bus runs fast.”He went on to say that many know of the famous book that says to get the right people in the right seat of the bus.But at his credit union, they talk about the bus. It runs fast. Really fast.So they look for employees that like a fast bus. Not everyone does, he noted. continue reading »
Fallen Premier League champions Chelsea avoided another chastening defeat as Terry’s flick earned a 3-3 draw which drew the ire of the Spaniard. “The level of the refereeing is diabolical,” Martinez told Setanta. He added on BBC Radio 5 Live: “I don’t think you can call it controversy. It’s an incredible injustice, an incredible mistake.” Martinez’s frustration was not just at the time added on when fourth official Craig Pawson had signalled for seven minutes’ stoppage time. The Everton boss’ anger was over Terry netting from an offside position. And his comments may yet attract the attention of the Football Association’s disciplinary chiefs. “The fourth official made it clear it was time (up), before the ball was played into the box. It’s not a debate,” Martinez added in the post-match media conference. “We had to play seven minutes of injury time and the last action happens at seven minutes and 51 seconds. “That would be a debatable point – how long you want to play. But to have a player two yards offside in the box is unacceptable. “John Terry with the final touch is two yards offside. “There’s no reason to get that decision wrong. It doesn’t come down to the interpretation of the referee at all. “The offside decision is as clear as you’re going to see. It’s a major error. “It’s not a decision which could be in the balance. That makes it difficult to take. “It’s a heartbreaking moment for us, because we deserved the three points. “The refereeing today wasn’t up to the level and that’s very, very frustrating. It’s cost us two points.” Martinez did not approach referee Mike Jones or his fellow officials afterwards. “It’s pointless,” he said. The lengthy celebrations following Ramiro Funes Mori’s late goal might have contributed to the additional minute being added, with Everton believing they had secured a first league win at Stamford Bridge in 21 years after staving off a Chelsea fightback. Then Terry struck with a deft flick on a 700th club appearance which included an earlier own goal. Hiddink remains unbeaten in six matches since being appointed Chelsea caretaker boss for a second time and admitted his side benefited from good fortune. “I can say now he (Martinez) is quite right,” said Hiddink, who replaced Jose Mourinho. “You have to be fair. Why should I deny it? I have seen it. “Oscar touched the ball and, half a yard, John was offside even though he made a beautiful goal.” Terry’s own goal and a Kevin Mirallas strike put Everton 2-0 up, but Chelsea scored twice in quick succession to restore parity. A howler from Tim Howard allowed Diego Costa to net and Cesc Fabregas’ deflected strike levelled matters. Worse was to follow for Chelsea when Costa limped off and Funes Mori turned in fellow substitute Gerard Deulofeu’s cross. Costa immediately went to hospital for a scan on a shin injury. Hiddink added: “He was in a lot of pain. He will have a scan. We don’t know the result. I hope it’s not bad.” The potential absence of Costa, including in next Sunday’s match at Arsenal, could lead to Chelsea making moves in the transfer market. But Hiddink would not be drawn on that prospect. “For the moment we are doing nothing (in the transfer market),” Hiddink said. “We hope Diego comes out the hospital in good health and we go on as we are doing.” Hiddink says he urged the match officials to play an additional minute due to the celebrations following Everton’s third goal. The Dutchman said: “They were celebrating in the corner, their third goal, and then we asked the fourth official ‘hey, they are celebrating (for) one minute, so you have to add one minute more, maybe something will happen’. “And it happened in that time. That was fair, I think.” Roberto Martinez was seething after Everton were denied a first win at Chelsea in 21 years by a 98th-minute John Terry goal which even Guus Hiddink conceded should have been ruled out for offside.

MORE: Free one-week trial of Fantasy Alarm’s PRO toolsToday’s NHL DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Tuesday, Nov. 12Center: Max Domi, Canadiens vs. Blue Jackets. Which Habs to use depend on their pricing on each site, and Domi’s line is priced better on FD. Joel Armia plays on Domi’s wing, and they play on the top PP unit together, making them a good mini-stack. Armia is particularly well priced on FD.Wing: Alex Galchenyuk, Penguins @ Rangers. Galchenyuk is a reasonably priced way to get Pens exposure under 5K. He’s got a spot on the top PP unit, and he plays with Jake Guentzel at even strength. Guentzel is a little pricey for my liking without being centered by Crosby.Wing: Leon Draisaitl, Oilers @ Sharks. Connor McDavid and Draisaitl are an expensive mini-stack, but their upside is so high in the matchup. Perhaps they’re priced a bit better on DK, but the cap is softer on FD, so they can be used in GPPs on either site.Defenseman: Matt Grzelcyk, Bruins vs. Panthers. With Torey Krug already ruled out for tonight’s game, Grzelcyk will take his spot on the top PP unit. His pair already skates the most at even strength with the Patrice Bergeon line, so he’s going to be on the ice a lot with BOS1. He’s minimum price on FD and only $500 over minimum on DK.Defenseman: Matthew Dumba, Wild @ Kings. Dumba is one of the better values on the blue line on both sites, so he could be used as one-off salary relief. However, he also makes sense in a DK MIN1 GPP stack as he plays the most with that line at even stength, and he plays on a PP unit with Staal and Zuccarello. Goalie: Carey Price, Canadiens vs. Blue Jackets. Price is my highest projected goalie of the slate. The Habs are one of four big favorites tonight, and he has some upside and room for error in the matchup with Columbus. Pos PlayerMatchupFDDKY!BreakDownCM.
