ELIZABETH, N.J. -- Get the calls right. Respond professionally when coaches think you got it wrong.The demands are higher than ever on NBA referees. This season theyre being told to crack down on the kind of hits to the groin area that resulted in Draymond Greens suspension during the NBA Finals, and also asked to keep a better eye on traveling.Perhaps soon there could be a fourth referee to make it easier. Someday, maybe even six.For now theres just three in a game, so the refs spent a good portion of this week watching video of calls, some correct and others that werent, in hopes of getting better.Theres always a why and a how. Why did we miss it and how can we get it, said Bob Delaney, the NBAs vice president of referee operations and director of officials. But its the why and the how also of what we do positive. Why do we get it right? Reinforce to yourself how you got it right so that youre getting it right again.The lessons in preseason camp were about more than when to blow the whistle. Delaney stresses communication, leadership, ethics and mental conditioning, bringing in guest speakers and having the crew participate in team-building games.The longtime referee relies on values he learned as a New Jersey State Trooper when working with the officials.I had an old sergeant that said to me, `You have to remember, just because you have authority, doesnt mean it has to be hurtful and demeaning. You will realize you are a professional trooper when you give out a ticket or you arrest someone and they say thank you, Delaney said.Again, we dont equate whats taking place, but we see whats going on in our country today and these are the same kinds of things. So we need to model what a positive, good authority figure should be.Referees were told by coaches they came off as arrogant when they gave warnings, Delaney said, so theyve come up with words they can use to make for more positive interaction. Officials will try to avoid penalizing a player for cursing, as long as hes not cursing at someone.But they will toughen up in some areas, particularly if Green continues his habit of flailing his arms or legs after making contact with opponents in the groin area, as Golden States All-Star forward did a few times in the postseason.We told the referees the other night, you have to address it, said Joe Borgia, the NBA senior vice president of replay and referee operations.The league tested a game with four referees in the Utah summer league, and will do so a few more times in the NBA Development League. Delaney and other referee operations managers believe a better solution might be six officials, though he stressed its just in the research stage and not being discussed with the referee staff.Were constantly thinking of how can this be implemented, and then we put it on a back burner and get back to work with what we are doing and reinforcing it to them, he said.---Follow Brian Mahoney on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/Briancmahoney Nike Air Huarache Clearance . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Janoris Jenkins is humble enough and smart enough not to call himself the best cornerback in the NFL.So let Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher speak for the former free agent whom the New York Giants signed in the offseason to a five-year, $62.5 million contract.In discussing Sundays game between the Giants (3-3) and Rams (3-3) in London, Fisher was glowing when asked about Jenkins, who played his first four seasons with Fisher in St. Louis.Fisher wanted Jenkins back with the Rams this season, but it seemed the team could not match the Giants offer, which included a $10 million signing bonus and a $28 million guarantee.He played really well for us. He overcame a couple of injury things, Fisher said. Im just saying to reiterate, but I think youd be hard pressed to find a corner in this league whos playing better than he is.When asked to man up and cover, hes a shutdown corner. When asked to match up with the top receivers, he does it, he plays both sides. When asked to be patient and play zone and play within the scheme, he does it. Im happy for him, but not happy for us.Jenkins has not only played well for the Giants, he has been indispensable because of injuries to first-round draft pick Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.Apple has been inactive in two of the past three games with hamstring and groin injuries, while Rodgers-Cromartie missed the Minnesota game with a groin injury and has gutted his way through the past two games against Green Bay and Baltimore.Jenkins has the Giants only two interceptions this season, and he played the shutdown role on Dez Bryant in the season-opening winn against Dallas.dddddddddddd.I am just playing football and doing what I do, Jenkins said after practice Wednesday when asked about Fishers comments. That is a nice compliment, but I am just going to stay focused and continue to play football.Jenkins said he lets other people worry about where he ranks among cornerbacks.I think I have played good. I can play better, he said. Nothing major, but just keep improving every week.If Jenkins is asked to match up on Sunday, he will probably cover Kenny Britt. The former Rutgers receiver ranks fifth in the NFC with 492 yards receiving. He has 30 catches and two touchdowns.Kenny, he is physical, he is big, he is going to give you a lot of pushing and shoving, but we just have to go out there and play football, Jenkins said.Giants receiver Victor Cruz said Jenkins has a knack for understanding routes and playing the ball well.He understands the ball in the air, he really can play it while it is in the air, whether it is a breakup or an interception, he knows how to close that gap, Cruz said.He has that speed to close that gap and get to the football. I am happy that he is on our team, happy he is making plays and doing some really great things.Fisher remembers walking into a defensive meeting with the Rams and always seeing Jenkins in the front row.Hes a student, he studies, he competes, quietly, Fisher said. Hes got great ball skills and hes playing really well.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
