A meeting between F1 team bosses, Bernie Ecclestone and the FIA in Bahrain has ended without agreement on what format the sport should use in qualifying. A new meeting will be held on Thursday to discuss a fresh proposal.Sky Sports understands that the proposal on the table involves a system of aggregate times being used in Q1, Q2 and Q3, with Pirelli providing extra sets of tyres. So the new suggested qualy format apparently involves aggregate times, a word that should only be associated with Tarmac and concrete, tweeted Sky F1 pundit Martin Brundle. Not F1.Have your say: Vote for the format youd like used in qualifying According to Red Bull boss Christian Horner, race promoters and the FIA are reluctant for the sport to return to the format used last season.The bottom line is if we dont agree to a compromise then we are stuck with what we have got and I think everyone agrees that what we currently have isnt right, Horner told Sky Sports News HQ.Weve got a proposal on the table to vote on by Thursday and hopefully we can find a sensible conclusion that gives the right thing for the fans. Claire Williams revealed to Sky Sports News HQ that one of the new proposals for teams to consider was not the 2015 system, or a hybrid of 2015 and 2016s rules, but a completely new format.This is a whole new proposal, the last one was a hybrid that kept the 2016 Q1 and Q2 then brought in 2015 for Q3, she said.I think most people felt that wouldnt achieve what we wanted it to achieve so coming up with a totally revised proposal was the goal for everyone and that is what that meeting was about this morning.Why was qualifying unchanged for the Bahrain GP?FIA president Jean Todt refused to give any details as to what the new proposal was, but hoped it would satisfy fans.You need to be patient, by Thursday you will have all the information, he said. I hope that fans will be happy. Ted Kravitz interviews F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone on F1 Qualifying and other topics. However, even if a new system is approved on Thursday, Williams is unsure if it will be implemented for the Chinese GP later this month, round three of the new F1 season.I think like all these things we want time and we left the changes from Melbourne too late. We are trying to change things as quickly as possible, but when you are flying around the world people are here there and everywhere, said the deputy team principal. It isnt easy coming up with new solutions so if anyone has any ideas please tell us. Also See: Vote for the Qualy format youd like When is the Bahrain GP on Sky?

NBA Jerseys China . -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed Jerome Simpson, the former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver recently convicted on a felony drug charge.A tentative date of December 1 has been set for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to stand trial on a felony child abuse charge. All along, Peterson has expressed he is not interested in cutting a deal and believes he did nothing wrong. While he indicated to police that he felt bad in light of the extent of the injuries, he added to be honest with you, I feel very confident with my actions because I know my intent and he characterized the incident as a normal whooping. Peterson also maintained his innocence in a statement issued through his lawyer Rusty Hardin, saying, I never ever intended to harm my son. I will say the same thing once I have my day in court. If this goes to trial (which is not a guarantee if the sides can settle), it remains possible Peterson could be acquitted. The Beating The criminal charge stems from a beating he gave his four-year-old son with a tree branch (or a switch) after Petersons son pushed another child off of a motorbike video game. Peterson grabbed a tree branch, removed the leaves and struck his son repeatedly. According to CBS Houstons Nick Wright, the assault resulted numerous injuries to the child, including cuts and bruises to the childs back, buttocks, ankles, legs and scrotum, along with defensive wounds to the childs hands. Wright also reported the following: Peterson also allegedly said via text message to the childs mother that he felt bad after the fact when I notice the switch was wrapping around hitting I (sic) thigh and also acknowledged the injury to the childs scrotum in a text message, saying, Got him in nuts once I noticed. But I felt so bad, n Im all tearing that butt up when needed! I start putting them in timeout. N save the whooping for needed memories! In further text messages, Peterson allegedly said, Never do I go overboard! But all my kids will know, hey daddy has the biggie heart but dont play no games when it comes to acting right. According to police reports, the child, however, had a slightly different story, telling authorities that Daddy Peterson hit me on my face. The child also expressed worry that Peterson would punch him in the face if the child reported the incident to authorities. He also said that he had been hit by a belt and that there are a lot of belts in Daddys closet. He added that Peterson put leaves in his mouth when he was being hit with the switch while his pants were down. The child told his mother that Peterson likes belts and switches and has a whooping room..dddddddddddd The Charge As per Section 22.04 of the Texas Penal Code, Peterson was indicted on a charge of recklessly, or with criminal negligence, caused bodily injury to a child. This type of charge is classified as a state jail felony and is punishable by 180 days to two years in jail and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Reckless defendants act with an awareness that their actions are likely to cause the crime but persist with their actions. In order to be characterized as criminally negligent, it just needs to be shown that the defendant was not aware of the potential consequences but should have been. The prosecution just needs to show either Peterson was reckless OR negligent. The latter is easier to establish since you dont need the element of awareness. Petersons Defence Physical abuse in Texas is an accepted form of discipline. Section 261.001 of the Texas Family Code allows parents to engage in reasonable discipline of children so long as it does not expose the child to a substantial risk of harm. This may explain why it took the prosecution two attempts to get Peterson indicted. Ultimately, Peterson was indicted because a grand jury believed that his conduct did not constitute reasonable discipline and ended up causing substantial harm to his child. Peterson Could Walk At Trial Based upon the merits of the case and the relatively low legal standard of negligence to be met, the prosecution has a strong case. The injuries inflicted certainly cross the line and constitute substantial harm. As well, while Peterson may not have intended to harm his son, he should have known those injuries were likely. Bottom line: the harm was bad and Peterson, at the very least, was negligent. That doesnt mean, however, the prosecution is going to win. Its entirely possible that Peterson could walk. To find Peterson guilty, jurors must reach a unanimous verdict. That means that Rusty Hardin need only convince one juror to give Peterson a pass. Hardin, who secured an acquittal for his client Roger Clemens in his perjury trial, knows that physical abuse as a form of discipline is accepted and is part of the culture in Texas. As well, reasonable discipline is provided for, and protected, under Texas law. So while that one juror may not approve of the harm inflicted and believe it wasnt reasonable, he or she may still be empathetic towards Peterson, believe hes learned his lesson and give him a pass. And for Peterson and Hardin, thats the hope. ' ' '
