    NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg has launched an impassioned defence of the suspensions handed to players charged with touching a referee. Albert Lewis Jersey .The issue has been a constant source of conflict throughout the season after the games governing body had sought to crack down on the trend of players making contact with match officials.It flared last month when St George Illawarra and NSW State of Origin back-rower Tyson Frizell was rubbed out for one week for making what appeared to be minor and incidental contact with referee Chris James.Many argued the severity of the offence was outweighed by the penalty, considering some players had escaped sanction for different yet more harmful offences - such as Ryan James who was allowed to play the next week despite breaking James Tedescos jaw in a high tackle.However, Greenberg was unequivocal - that if a player made contact with an official that could be avoided, then he would be suspended.You know what, dont touch the referee and you wont have that issue to worry about, Greenberg said.Players should be under no illusions - if you touch the referee, there are consequences.Greenberg said the match review committee did differentiate between avoidable and non-avoidable contact and many players had escaped charges because their brush with an official was deemed accidental.He said the rule had been brought in to increase respect for referees and clamp down on the trend of players crowding officials when challenging a decision.If a player walks through and touches a referee, and he could have avoided that contact, then hes going to get charged, Greenberg said.There has been a spate over the last two years, that were still seeing now, where players rush referees and get in their faces.Were not going to stand around and watch that happen.Following a meeting of club chief executives on Thursday at Rugby League Central, Greenberg also revealed former Penrith coach Ivan Cleary would conduct a review of the NRL bunker.He will look at the preparation and performance review of officials and report back after the grand final. Dave Krieg Jersey . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. Jan Stenerud Jersey . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. ;. The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. BATON ROUGE, La. -- Diagnosed with cancer, LSUs live tiger mascot, Mike VI, wont take the field during home football games this season but will remain in his habitat instead.The university, in a news release Tuesday, said in light of Mikes recent cancer diagnosis, no attempt will be made to load him into his trailer.

In June, Mike received treatment for spindle cell sarcoma, a lemon-sized swelling that had nearly closed one of his eyes.
