MONTREAL -- When Mukhbir Singhs soccer team won the league championship this past winter, he was on the sidelines -- barred from the pitch last November because he wears a turban. Singh, a 25-year-old Montrealer, has been coaching instead of playing for his recreational league team ever since. "My teammates are very supportive and wanted me to be a part of the team anyway," he said. Singh will have to wait at least a little while longer to get back on the field. The Quebec Soccer Federation announced Sunday its board of directors has decided to keep a ban on turbans. Quebec referees began cracking down on turbans, patkas and keskis -- the religious headgear worn by Sikh men and boys -- in the last year. The latest move comes despite a directive from the Canadian Soccer Association in April calling for provincial associations to allow them. In a statement Sunday, the Quebec federation cited safety concerns and said its decision to keep the ban is in line with the international soccer organization FIFA. The federation said it would lift the ban immediately if FIFA does. For now, Quebec referees who dont apply the rule could face penalties of their own. Balpreet Singh, a spokesman for the World Sikh Organization of Canada, said Quebec is the only province where Sikh soccer players have faced problems because they wear a turban. Singh argues FIFAs position on turbans and other headwear is beside the point. He said FIFA is responsible for major international tournaments, while the Quebec Soccer Federation oversees recreational leagues. "Were talking about kids having fun," Singh said. The organization is exploring its options and is considering taking legal action, he said. Its not first time religious headgear on the soccer field has been the source of controversy in the province. Quebec, which has been the site of heated debate over "reasonable accommodation" of minorities, banned a teen in 2011 from working as a soccer referee while wearing a hijab. The statement from the Quebec Soccer Federation noted that girls are now permitted to wear headscarves on the field in Quebec, following a directive from FIFA in 2012. Mukhbir Singh, who is also a member of the World Sikh Organization of Canada, said hes optimistic hell eventually be able to return to the pitch. He said hes more concerned about how the ruling will impact young Sikhs. "If this gets extended to three or four years, to be honest Im worried about the long-term effects this will have on the children," he said, estimating that 100 and 200 soccer players are affected by the ruling. "Im worried what theyll make of their own Sikh identity after facing these types of issues."

The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner. Teuvo Teravainen Jersey . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Tom Brady appeared to be in regular season form Friday night.Unfortunately for the New England Patriots, they may not see that form in a meaningful game until Oct. 9 when they face the Cleveland Browns since the three-time Super Bowl MVP will serve a four-game suspension to start the season.Brady looked sharp in his preseason debut though, throwing a 33-yard touchdown pass to Chris Hogan in helping the Patriots to a 19-17 preseason win over the Carolina Panthers on Friday night.Brady relieved Jimmy Garoppolo late in the first quarter and completed a 37-yard pass to Aaron Dobson on his first play from scrimmage, leading to a field goal. On his second drive Brady heaved a perfectly placed over-the-shoulder pass to Hogan down the right sideline for a 9-0 lead. Bradys other two drives failed to produce points.Brady made a quick escape after the game and did not talk to reporters.Weve moved ahead in a lot of areas, but were certainly not where we need to be, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. I dont think any player is, any coach is, Im sure no team is at this point. Were all making progress, which is good. Weve just got to keep our foot on the gas and make it as quickly as we can.While Brady was on the mark, league MVP Cam Newton struggled mightily in his most extensive playing time of the preseason. Newton was intercepted twice and the Panthers failed to get any points on his eight first-half possessions. Overall, the Panthers scored just three points in 10 Newton-led drives.The sixth-year quarterback was high on some passes and didnt get much help from his receivers, who had problems getting separation and dropped four passes, including one by Brenton Bersin on a fourth-and-2 at midfield.Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he was frustrated, but if we lower our passes and catch the ball, then we are where we need to be.Newton called the loss eye opening.We need better production from everybody including myself, Newton said. I have to be more mature and check the ball down and let guys do what they do.We will be better from this.New England shut down the leagues highest-scoring offense from a year ago, intercepted Derek Anderson and allowed only one passing play of more than 15 yards in the first half.Garoppolo, expected to start the first four games for the Patriots while Brady sserves a suspension for his role in Deflategate, returned in the second quarter but couldnt get anything going.ddddddddddddIn the third quarter he rolled out of the pocket while under pressure and missed an open receiver whod gotten behind the defense. His six drives resulted in no points, although Stephen Gostkowski missed a 30-yard field goal on the New Englands opening possession.Overall, there were some good things we did tonight, but we have to get the little things corrected or theyre going to bite us in the butt, Garoppolo said.QB COMPARISONPatriots: Brady finished 3 of 9 for 76 yards with one touchdown, while Garoppolo was 9 of 15 for 57 yards.Panthers: Newton was 13 of 29 for 100 yards with two interceptions and ran once for 9 yards.ROOKIE WATCHPatriots: QB Jacoby Brissett connected on a 12-yard TD pass to DeAndre Carter to give New England a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter.
