>Maybe the public address announcer at NFL stadiums is a job for Michael Buffer these days.You know: “Let’s get ready to rumble!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”Unfortunately Cheap Kolton Miller Jersey , what goes on inside the boxing ring might be safer than what we saw the last few weeks on the football field.Brawls. Dirty hits.Malicious moves . Targeting. Launching .Nauseating.“The unnecessary stuff is over the top,” says Broncos linebacker Shaq Barrett, who was not involved in any of the incidents and, presumably, is a neutral observer. “We should try to get that out of the game.”Leagues at all levels have spent more than a decade seeking enhanced player safety. Most of the time, those initiatives involved rules changes.In the NFL, mostly they have worked. Not so much lately.Troy Vincent, a terrific defensive back in his playing days and now the overseer of football operations for the league, promises that the NFL will look at any adjustments that will diminish the awfulness seen in recent weeks.“We have had clear directives from the competition committee,” Vincent says. “They asked us and the players to remove some of the helmet-to-helmet hits that we have seen, as well of some of the blindside blocks and other types of disparaging techniques and behaviors on the field. We have clear directive that this is not something that should be progressive, but that we strongly consider removing a player that is using these techniques that we want out of our game immediately.”Yet the prohibited keeps happening and, it seems, to a higher degree.“You’re always talking about keeping the poise and understanding the big picture is winning the game,” Saints coach Sean Payton says. “Part of that is mental toughness. You don’t have to respond and be macho. So many times I hear, ‘I’m not going to be punked,’ and I get that. And yet, listen, there’s a discipline element that you’re preaching as coaches. You’re trying to make them understand the big picture Terrell Edmunds Steelers Jersey , which is winning, and all these side things that can take you down a path contrary to the goal.”While fans of specific teams will take umbrage at one of their guys getting suspended 鈥?that’s a basic principle of fandom, that your team can’t be wrong 鈥?more objective observers recognize the danger zone these incidents occur in.Two of the most insightful voices in this area, former NFL executive Pat Kirwan and former pro quarterback Jim Miller, discussed the ugliness of what we just saw during their SiriusXM NFL Radio program this week. They brought up a point worth pondering: Why aren’t players being tossed when they go so far across the line of fair play?Miller: “When are the officials going to be willing to eject players?”Kirwan: “They should have by now. They think throwing flags is going to stop it. I quote Ray Lewis, we are talking about a receiver coming over the middle and he did a number on the guy. I asked Ray: ‘What was going through your mind?’‘Look, I’ve got the middle in our zone drop. Anyone who is coming in there, here comes the receiver, at no time in my life did I ever think of the rule book and let him in there with the ball.'”Miller: “I go back to that (2015 Steelers-Bengals) playoff game, that’s what lit the fuse, that’s what got the party started. And it was payback (Monday night). The Bengals felt they were wronged by the officials. (They think) if they are not going to police it, boys, we are going to police it. They got one of ours, we’re going to get one of theirs.“At what point will the officials eject?Kirwan: “As soon as the head of officials tells them if you don’t eject, we are going to suspend (an official). You’ve got to get this under control. Or the league office stops the game like they should, and say ‘He’s out now.’ Why can’t they eject from New York?’“You’ve got to control it.”Kirwan makes an excellent point that rules on paper mean nothing unless they are enforced, and there are consequences 鈥?not only for rules breakers, but for those charged with upholding the rules.“Stop writing rules and start throwing guys out that you, in your mind Vontaze Burfict Jersey , ref, you know intentionally tried to hurt someone,” he says. “Just throw him out of the game.”Vincent notes that players, fans, coaches, general managers and owners don’t want to see ejections.“There are only 17 weeks and the philosophy is, if it gets out of control, we ask the referees to maintain control of the game, give them that flexibility,” Vincent says. “They have that flexibility, but we really emphasize let the players play, but if things begin to get out of control, you must maintain control of the game during that window.”In an odd way, maybe pro players need to look back at the grass roots of the game, where USA Football’s initiatives are designed to promote safety and proper tackling techniques 鈥?and are working.“My sense of it as coaches and maybe parents and players see those things,” says USA Football Executive Director Scott Hallenbeck, “they’re fully aware of Heads Up Football and shoulder tackling. The common denominator is, this is the right way to teach it and it is happening across the board.“In the past, a kid might be taught differently at the youth level than at the high school level Josh Allen Jersey Youth , now it is consistent. The majorities of youth and high school football now follow shoulder tackling. It’s been really comprehensive, we are seeing a great improvement, and coaches are telling us they are seeing a great improvement in overall tackling.”Too bad it’s not always apparent in the NFL. Ilya Kovalchuk signed with the Kings in his return to the NHL, the Hurricanes and Flames pulled off a five-player trade, and John Tavares will now explore different possibilities for his future.
After a dull first round of the draft, action picked up Saturday as teams laid the groundwork for more moves.
The biggest is Tavares, who will begin talking to other teams Sunday when the free agent negotiating period opens. The New York Islanders‘ face of the franchise will reportedly meet with the Toronto Maple Leafs, San Jose Sharks and three other teams in the upcoming days in Los Angeles before he can sign a contract July 1.
”He’s earned every right to make whatever choice he has,” Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello said. ”He has a right to do that. The important thing is that he’s an Islander at the end.”
That’s far from certain after the Islanders were unable to agree to terms with the 27-year-old point-a-game center before he could open the dialogue with other teams. Just being able to woo Tavares is a tantalizing possibility, even if GMs aren’t willing to say his name while he’s still property of New York.
”I think players do identify our team, our organization, as a place that they want to explore, which is a good thing,” Sharks GM Doug Wilson said. ”It’s a good thing that I think players look at our place as a place they want to consider to play, which as a GM makes your life a little bit easier.”
Tavares is the biggest fish in free agency, especially considering the Stanley Cup-champion Washington Capitals were closing in on a deal to re-sign defenseman John Carlson.
Amid the fast-and-furious selecting in Rounds 2 through 7, Carolina acquired defenseman Dougie Hamilton, winger Micheal Ferland and prospect Adam Fox from Calgary for center Elias Lindholm and defenseman Noah Hanifin. After missing the playoffs the past nine seasons, the Hurricanes aren’t done dealing.
”We’ll stay busy Cheap Donte Jackson Jersey ,” Hurricanes GM Don Waddell said. ”I can’t say for sure anything will get done. I’m pretty confident something will get done, whether it’s in the next few days or next 10 days.”
Only two trades involving players went down at the draft, including the Capitals clearing cap space for Carlson by sending backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer and 37-year-old defenseman Brooks Orpik to the Colorado Avalanche for a second-round pick. But even beyond Carolina – which could trade winger Jeff Skinner and defenseman Justin Faulk and will likely also get a goalie – the seeds were planted for several more moves over the next week.
One of those could include Montreal captain Max Pacioretty, who changed agents amid trade rumors. Buffalo is also entertaining offers on center Ryan O’Reilly, and the Rangers are seeing what’s out there as they rebuild but have an overflowing amount of cap space.
”We have a lot going on,” Rangers GM Jeff Gorton said. ”It didn’t seem like there were as many trades as we’ve seen in the last couple of years at the draft. I’m going to guess that’s going to keep coming here as we go into free agency that in the next week you’ll start to see some more players move around based on the conversations that we’re having.”
Gorton believes some of the higher-end players being available in trades or free agency is holding back trade action. As soon as some of them go, it could start a domino effect.
”A lot of teams set their sights on those guys, and when they don’t get them it may change what you’re doing,” Gorton said. ”A lot of times when some of the best players are out there for trade it does hold everybody up because you want the best players and everyone is trying to do it, and they all can’t do it.”
Los Angeles got it done with Kovalchuk, signing him to a three-year contract with a $6.25 million cap hit. Boston GM Don Sweeney, who was in talks to sign the Olympic MVP, said going to three years made it tough on the Bruins and ultimately sealed the deal for the Kings.
The Islanders, Maple Leafs, Sharks and others will certainly try to do the same with Tavares, who would almost certainly get $10-plus million a season on a seven-year deal and fits into the category of players Wilson believes San Jose can get.
”We’re looking for difference-makers,” Wilson said. ”We’ll be prepared and see what opportunities and what conversations we’ll be able to participate in.
