    MADRID - The Court of Arbitration for Sport on Tuesday dismissed Barcelonas appeal and upheld a transfer ban that FIFA imposed on the club for breaking rules on registering minors as youth players. [b]Len Dawson Jersey[/b] .Barcelona had breached the rules regarding the protection of minors and the registration of minors attending football academies, CAS said in a statement.The ruling means Barcelona will be barred from signing any players in 2015, although it can still renew existing contracts, fire players and recall those loaned to other clubs, such as Denis Suarez and Gerard Deulofeu, both at Sevilla.CAS also upheld a fine of 450,000 Swiss francs ($455,000) imposed against Barcelona.FIFA said CAS had shown clear and strong support for FIFAs efforts to protect underage players.The club said in a statement it totally disagreed with the ruling and considered the sanction completely disproportionate.It said the club understood and supported FIFAs protection for minors policy and insisted it had acted correctly.Barcelonas youth structure has enabled hundreds of young players to achieve their dreams, the club said.Barcelona said it was evaluating legal options, including appealing the decision to the Swiss Federal Court.A gross injustice has been committed, Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu said. Priority has been given to a poorly-conceived rule rather than to its spirit.The club is renowned for training and educating young players such as Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta at its La Masia academy.FIFA exerts rigid control over transferring minors across international borders. In Feb. 2013, FIFA found that Barcelona had violated those regulations when it signed 10 players under the age of 18 to its academy.It was that finding that Barcelona appealed. The club now has 90 days to regularize the situation of all minor players affected by the ruling.The international transfer of players under the age of 18 can only go through if their parents move to the country for non-football reasons.Players between 16 and 18 can move within Europe if certain standards of education and living conditions are met.Barcelona has always argued that La Masia fulfilled the most stringent requirements.Spains league called La Masia a world-class example and said it was conducting a review into how Spains legislation might be at odds with FIFAs regulations and those applied elsewhere in the European Union.The league said in a statement that based on its conclusions it would consider making an official complaint to the competent EU bodies about FIFAs regulations governing transfers of minors.The concept of a youth training centre was first proposed to Barcelona by Johan Cruyff, who graduated from a similar program at Ajax, and La Masia was opened in 1979.Located away from the Nou Camp, it is a boarding school where academic learning is combined with physical training for talented young players.[b]Khalen Saunders Youth Jersey[/b] . On the day the club activated Casey Janssen from the 15-day disabled list, his return from a strained oblique that cost him the first six weeks of the regular season, it announced Sergio Santos would be placed on the disabled list on Monday with discomfort in his right forearm.

Coaches, scouts, broadcasters and other media hover, tossing verbal barbs, telling stories and sharing laughs. Occasionally, especially in spring when the atmosphere is relatively laid back, the list of invited guests expands and on this day, Gibbons welcomed two men strongly influential in his life.Martin Erats days with the Washington Capitals appear to be numbered, as TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reports that the veteran winger has asked the team for a trade. The Capitals acquired Erat and centre Michael Latta from the Nashville Predators at last seasons trade deadline in exchange for forward Filip Forsberg. According to LeBrun, this is actually the second time this season that Erat has spoken to management about being dealt. Erat originally asked for a trade about a week into the season, but the matter soon faded away until he went into GM George McPPhees office again this past weekend. [b]Tyrann Mathieu Womens Jersey[/b]. LeBrun reports that the Capitals are working the phones to try to accommodate him and there is some level of interest. The 31-year-old has just six assists in 23 games this season. After this season, Erat has one year remaining on a seven-year, $31.5 million contract he signed prior to the 2008-09 campaign. That deal carries an average annual value of $4.5 million. Originally drafted in the seventh round (191st overall) of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, Erat has scored 164 goals and 326 assists in 755 career games.
