The old adage You see something new every day at the ballpark probably rang true for anyone witnessing David Ortizs batting practice session at Fenway Park on Thursday. Cheap Wizards Jerseys China .Who else but Ortiz could figure out a way to get a ball stuck in the iconic Pesky Pole??This should serve as a sad reminder to all sports fans that only a few months of Big Papi magic remain before the designated hitter retires from the?Boston Red Sox. Cheap Swingman Wizards Jerseys .ca. Kerry,  Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count?  All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. Wholesale Wizards Jerseys . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. . Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach. The NFL is reviewing two plays Sunday by Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict -- a low hit on New England Patriots?tight end?Martellus Bennett, who said Burfict apologized after the game and stated it wasnt intentional, and an alleged stomp on Patriots running back?LeGarrette Blount after a late touchdown.The Bennett play came with 11:22 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Patriots 35-17 win, on third-and-2. Burfict was seen lunging at the lower left leg/knee of Bennett as a pass was thrown downfield to receiver Danny Amendola for a 17-yard gain. Burficts lunge might have been the result of quarterback?Tom Bradys pump fake in that direction. Burfict also appeared to stub his left toe as he reacted to the fake.Regarding the second play, coaches film of the game appeared to show Burfict deliberately stepping on Blounts leg after his late fourth-quarter touchdown run, as Blount lay on the ground.?In reference to the first play, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said he wasnt concerned because the league looks at every play.He goes on the pump fake, Lewis said. We were coaching him to keep his head up in order to make a better football play and not react as hard as he can. He [Brady] pump-faked a couple of times and ended up getting sacks, or he pump-faked a couple of times and made plays for them, and that was one of them.From our coaching standpoint, we want to make sure, as we come in to defend the ball, we are able to defend with the arms so you have the chance to get the ball loose and off of them.Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday that the Patriots would let the league talk about that play. Its their decision.A replay on the CBS broadcast showed that Bennett was slow to get up after the hit.Things happen in a game. It usually doesnt happen that way, but he apologized. He said he didnt try to do it, Bennett said after the game. Its part of the game.Burfict was also seen helping Bennett up after tackling him on one play.?A players history can factor into potential NFL discipline. Burfict has been fined $204,329 since entering the league in 2012, not including three lost game checks for a total of $502,941 in base salary this season.A decision on potential discipline foor Burfict is expected no later than Wednesday afternoon, a league source told ESPN. Cheap NBA Jerseys. NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan and his staff have been reviewing tape of the two on-field incidents.Burfict has not been fined this season since returning in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins. He was suspended for the first three games of 2016 for repeated violations of player safety in the Bengals-Steelers AFC wild-card game last season, including a hit on Antonio Brown that resulted in a concussion for the wide receiver.Late in Sundays game, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was penalized for taunting. On the play before, he butted helmets with Burfict as emotions were rising.Gronkowski said after the game that he hadnt seen Burficts low hit on Bennett, and added, It didnt affect anything.During Bradys weekly interview on sports radio WEEI on Monday, the QB said he didnt see the low hit.You have to deal with that sometimes, Brady said. I think we were dealing with that most of the day. ... I havent seen it, so Im sure Ill have some different thoughts.Later in the interview, when asked if Gronkowskis taunting penalty is the type of penalty that is OK to accept based on the circumstances, Brady said, It always gets kind of chippy with the Bengals. Theyve had a history of that with particular players on their team, and it just kept going back and forth. Gronk was making a bunch of good plays on them, and Im sure they didnt like it.Its just one of those things. Id rather us not take those. Id rather us just be poised and get back to the huddle and make them pay on the scoreboard, but sometimes in football, it just happens.Asked whether he views the Bengals as a dirty team, Brady answered, I think they just play a tough, physical style, and when they hit you, they hit you hard. I dont say dirty. Ive never said that about any team. Its football. Its a physical sport. Some teams play more physical than others. The trademark of that team is to read the quarterback and break on the quarterback and hit hard. Thats how its been for a long time. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
