The Packers (13-4), helped

Golf took another stand against video evidence Tuesday by announcing a new decision that would not penalize a player whose ball moves at rest if the movement is only detected by enhanced pictures. It was the second time in the last two years that the U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient have established new guidelines involving video. The next edition of "Decisions on the Rules of Golf" effective Jan. 1 will include three new decisions, the most significant being 18/4. It says that when "enhanced technological evidence" shows that a ball moved, it will not be deemed to have moved if not "reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time." The new decision did not stem from Tiger Woods being penalized two shots in the BMW Championship in September. His ball moved barely a dimple as he tried to remove a twig from in front of the ball. The movement was captured by a videographer, and the violation was detected by an editor going through the film. Even after watching video after his round, Woods said he thought the ball only oscillated. At the time, rules officials already had gone through multiple drafts of the new decision. Decision 18/4 instead was an offshoot of Decision 33-7/4.5 in 2011. Under that decision, officials can waive disqualification for an incorrect scorecard if a player was unaware of a rules violation. The example was Peter Hanson, who double-hit a chip shot. The violation was only detected through HDTV played in super slow-motion. Thomas Pagel, the USGAs senior director of rules and competition, said an example of Decision 18/4 would be a player addressing his ball in the rough, and only a camera zoomed in on the ball showed it moving fractionally based on the blades of grass around the ball. In that case, the player would have no idea it had moved. The "Decisions" are updated every two years. The Rules of Golf are updated every four years. The latest decisions were part of a movement by the USGA and R&A to deal with increased advances in video technology. In a joint statement, they said the Rules of Golf committees continue to look at other issues related to video. That includes the precision in marking, lifting and replacing a golf ball; estimating where to take relief; and the appropriate penalty for returning an incorrect scorecard when the player was unaware of a violation. "As is true of the rules in many other televised sports, adapting to developments in technology and video evidence is an important ongoing topic in making and applying the Rules of Golf," the statement said. What remains unaffected is television viewers reporting potential violations. Golf officials say it is important to consider all evidence from any source. The only change is that a player might not be penalized if the only clear evidence is from enhanced video. The other chances to the 2014-15 edition of "Decisions:" --Decision 14-3/18 allows players to use smart phones to access weather reports. The new decision also clarifies that players are permitted access to information on the threat of an approaching storm for their own safety. --Decision 25-2/0.5 was revised to clarify when a golf ball is embedded. Officials have noticed an increased in tour players asking for relief, and a debate on whether the ball has broken through the soil. The revised decision will be accompanied by illustrations. --Decision 27-2a/1.5 was revised to allow players to go forward 50 yards without losing their right to return to play a provisional ball. The new edition of "Decisions" includes three new decisions and 59 revised decisions, while 24 decisions were taken out. Pagel said this done for the sake of clarity. Patrick Kerney Jersey . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the New York Rangers winger skated with extras and goalies today. Tyler Lockett Jersey . But Paul Osbaldiston, Hamiltons assistant special teams and kicking coach, said the team still relished the championship game workout. http://www.footballseahawksfanatics.com ... ersey/.com) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quickly found themselves a new offensive coordinator, and one thats quite familiar with the NFC South. Justin Britt Jersey . The 21-year-old Wickham headed Sunderland into a 26th-minute lead --to add to the double he scored at Manchester City and his strike in last weekends win at Chelsea -- and then sealed the win with a late header. Germain Ifedi Jersey . -- James Harden scored 31 points, including 25 in the second half, and the Houston Rockets dug out of a double-digit, first-half hole to beat the Orlando Magic 101-89 on Wednesday night.GREEN BAY, Wis. - Hobbled but happy, Aaron Rodgers might have felt a bit lucky, too.No matter: The All-Pro quarterback and his Green Bay Packers are one step away from the Super Bowl.More stationary than usual because of a left calf injury, Rodgers rallied the Packers from an 8-point deficit with two second-half touchdowns passes to beat Dallas 26-21 Sunday.The Packers (13-4), helped immensely by a video reversal with 4:06 remaining, went undefeated at Lambeau Field this season. They head to Seattle next weekend for the NFC title game.The Seahawks (13-4) beat Green Bay in the season opener, 36-16.I think I got 120 minutes left in me, Rodgers said.Green Bay might not have had any time left in its season if not for referee Gene Steratores decision. Dez Bryants leaping, bobbling 31-yard catch at the Packers 1 on a fourth-and-2 play was challenged by Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy. Instead of first-and-goal for Dallas (13-5), the ball went over to the Packers.Some people think throwing the red flag is fun, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. It was such an impactful play, you had to challenge. It was a confident challenge. And a hopeful one, too.One packed with controversy, as well.Look, Ill tell you this, Ive never seen that a day in my life, Bryant said. I want to know why it wasnt a catch.Because Bryant didnt maintain control all the way to the ground, as the rule states. Replays showed Bryant bobbling the ball as he rolled into the end zone, with part of it touching the field.By rule he must hold onto it throughout entire process of contacting the ground, tweeted Dean Blandino, the leagues director of officiating. He didnt, so it is incomplete.An impassioned Bryant didnt buy it.All I know is I had possession, I had possession of the ball coming down, Bryant said. Thats possession, right? One, two, reach. Bam, thats possession.Green Bay closed it out before a Lambeau-record 79,704 on Randall Cobbs diving 12-yard reception of a deflected pass on third-and-11. That gave Cobb eight catches for 116 yards and set off a raucous celebration at the iconic venue.Its unbelievable, Cobb said. For the ball to get tipped and magically appear in my area, you cant tell me theres not a God. That was a crazy play.One of many.The Cowboys first post-season trip to Green Bay since the 1967 Ice Bowl for the NFL championship resulted in their first road defeat of the season after eight victories. Dallas got 123 yards rushing from league leader DeMarco Murray and a courageous effort from Tony Romo, who hurt his left leg in the third quarter.That meant there were two hobbling quarterbacks. All-Pro Rodgers, bothered by a left calf he injured in Game 15, lost much of his trademark elusiveness as the game wore on.A little bit worse, yeah, RRodgers said of how his calf felt as the game progressed.dddddddddddd Hard to say, see how it feels in the morning.Regardless, he was on-target for a short pass to Davante Adams that turned into the 41-yard score to make it 21-20. Then he sharply guided the Packers 80 yards to the winning points, a 13-yard bullet to backup tight end Richard Rodgers in the back of the end zone.Murray atoned in style for a third-quarter fumble, gaining 32 yards on the Cowboys ensuing possession, including a 29-yard sprint one play after Romo hurt his leg. The hobbling Romo handed to Murray for the 1-yard plunge that made it 21-13, then limped to the bench for treatment on the leg.When he came back in, Romo was sacked on consecutive plays, the first ending the third period, the second forcing a punt.Rodgers had stood firm in firing over the middle to Adams, who cut right, shrugged off a weak tackle by J.J. Wilcox and sped into the end zone. The 90-yard drive got the Lambeau faithful back into it.Then came the decisive fourth-quarter series on which Rodgers went 7 for 7. He finished 24 for 35 for 316 yards and extended his record string without a home interception to 442 attempts. He has 39 TD passes in that span.On Green Bays opening possession, Rodgers mostly handed to Eddie Lacy, who rushed for 45 yards on the 60-yard drive. But Rodgers had to step up away from the rush and did so spryly before hitting Andrew Quarless in the back of the end zone.Back came Dallas with just as efficient a possession that took 7:25. Tyler Clutts was wide open at the goal line for his 1-yard TD catch.Rodgers got Green Bay close on its next drive, but was clapping his hands when rookie Corey Linsley snapped the ball. Rodgers dropped it, recovered, but then was hit by Jerome Mincey, who grabbed the loose ball.It was a rare turnover for the Packers, who tied for the league lead with only 13 giveaways. Cornerback Tramon Williams botched tackle attempt on a short pass to Terrance Williams turned into a 38-yard TD and the Cowboys led 14-7.The Packers drew closer at halftime thanks to a 31-yard completion to Cobb that set up Mason Crosbys 40-yard field goal. Crosby added a 30-yarder in the third quarter, making him the franchises career points leader. But Green Bay could have had more.After recovering Murrays fumble at the Dallas 44 and getting to the 13, a 15-yard personal foul on guard T.J. Lang set the Packers back.But not for long.NOTES: Adams had seven catches for 117 yards and Lacy rushed for 101. ... Green Bay had not trailed at Lambeau since Week 2 against the Jets. ... Bryant finished with only three catches for 38 yards. ... Romo was 15 for 19, but for just 191 yards.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2019 NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
