NEW YORK -- Former baseball pitcher Roger Clemens and his onetime strength coach came face-to-face on Tuesday in a bid to settle their long-running legal dispute, but they emerged from a closed-door meeting without a deal. Jordan 1 Sale Australia . A judge had summoned Clemens and Brian McNamee to federal court in Brooklyn for settlement talks aimed at heading off a trial in the defamation case. McNamees lawyer emerged saying an agreement wasnt likely. "I think this is a case where the lines are deeply drawn in the sand," said attorney Richard Emery. "I certainly expect theres going to be a trial in this case." It was the first time Clemens and McNamee had been in a private setting opposite each other at a conference table since at least 2007, Emery said. His client, he added, has struggled in recent years with health and financial problems. Clemens and his attorneys left the courthouse on Tuesday without speaking to reporters. U.S. Magistrate Cheryl Pollak ruled previously that Clemens has to turn over thousands of emails and other documents to McNamee. She agreed on Tuesday to examine the material to determine whether or not it was protected by lawyer-client privilege, as Clemens lawyers contend. Another hearing was set for June 10. McNamees 2009 federal lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, alleges Clemens launched an "intense and co-ordinated public relations offensive" against McNamee after the trainer told federal investigators and Congress that he injected Clemens more than a dozen times with steroids and human growth hormone from 1998 through 2001. The suit quotes Clemens saying in a YouTube video in 2007 that McNamee "did not inject steroids into my body either when I played in Toronto for the Blue Jays or the New York Yankees." It also cites an interview with ESPN in May in which Clemens, when asked about McNamee, responded that it was a case of "somebody out there that is really crawling up your back to make a buck." In 2012, a Washington jury found Clemens not guilty of lying to Congress about steroids and human growth hormone. He had adamantly denied using either substance at a 2008 congressional hearing. The prosecutions case relied heavily on the testimony of McNamee, who told jurors he injected Clemens with steroids and HGH many times. Clemens is a seven-time Cy Young Award winner who also pitched for the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros. Air Max 95 Sale Australia . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer.

Appearing on NFL Network, Robinson said he spoke with Lynch and Seattles star running back plans to hold out of the camp that begins Friday. "I really think he just wants his position in the organization and how they view him, he just wants that recalibrated a little bit," Robinson said on NFL Network. "Hes been the face of the franchise, hes been the face of the organization." At dispute is Lynchs contract. Lynch can make up to $5.5 million this season in base pay and roster bonuses. Its the third year of a four-year contract Lynch signed with Seattle before the 2012 season. Lynch nearly skipped Junes mandatory minicamp because he wants the final two years of his contract reworked. He ultimately showed to avoid a hefty fine, but did not participate with what coach Pete Carroll said was an ankle issue. Lynch was not present for Seattles organized team activities during the off-season. Seattles plan is to make sure Lynch is healthy for the season opener against Green Bay on Sept. 4, which would mean a very light load of carries during training camp and the preseason. Even though the Seahawks staff expressed durinng the off-season getting more carries for reserves Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, Carroll reiterated during minicamp that Seattles run game begins with Lynch.

It takes him a long time to get his body back to where he doesnt feel the rigours of the season thats past," Carroll said in June. "In this case its unique but he is a unique player and he has a unique role on our football team, so we have to do what we have to do to take care of him." Robinson said he believes that Lynch will eventually play this season. "I think Marshawn will be playing football this year. I dont know how theyre going to get it done, I dont know how theyre going to make it work but that team is not the championship team that they can be without Beast Mode," Robinson said. Lynch can be fined for missing training camp and hes shown the past being adverse to losing money via fines. Last season, Lynch begrudgingly began speaking to the media during the playoffs in an effort to avoid hefty financial penalties from the league. That included memorable sessions during Super Bowl week where he answered questions for about 20 combined minutes during three days of league-mandated media availability. ' ' '
