attempt by Augustin to set up a fast-break 3-pointer by Green to pull Boston back

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Rashaan Evans Stitched Jersey .ca! Hey Kerry, I was at the Jets-Oilers game on Tuesday night and noticed quite a bit of jersey tucking - most notably Bryan Little and Tobias Enstrom. No penalties were called and as far as I know, no warnings were given. (there might have been?) any thoughts or insight on to how this will be called during the season? Thanks,Will BrigantiEdmonton Will: The "jersey tucking" mandate is designed to comply with Rule 9—Equipment and more specifically 9.5—Protective Equipment: "All protective equipment, except gloves, headgear, and goaltenders leg guards must be worn under the uniform. Should it be brought to the attention of the Referee that a player is wearing, for example, an elbow pad that is not covered by his jersey, he shall instruct the player to cover up the pad and a second violation by the same player would result in a minor penalty being assessed." When a player tucks his jersey into the top of his pants some portion of the protective padding becomes exposed (worn outside the uniform) in violation of this rule. From a safety perspective the gap created by a tucked jersey exposes a portion of the players upper body and can act as a catchall for flying pucks and sticks to the point of causing an unnecessary injury. Aesthetically, it also violates rule 9.1 which provides that all players of each team shall be dressed uniformly with approved design and color of their helmets, sweaters, short pants, stockings and skates. The fact of the matter (beyond uniformity) is it just doesnt play well in the building or on TV. This also translates to the players hockey pants that are ripped, torn, cut or altered (open zippers inside thigh) for comfort or otherwise that could expose a bare leg or sock in the thigh area. I witnessed Walt Tkaczuk and other players that had huge thighs sometimes utilize zippers in the inside of their pants that would be half-zipped from the bottom for comfort. I thought at the time it made them vulnerable in this area but also as the pant continued to wear and curl just how poorly it looked aesthetically. Whenever a rule like this was handed to us for enforcement I considered it a "babysitting" assignment for me and my colleagues. This ranged from telling players how they could dress, to color of tape and size of the knob on the end of a goalies stick to water bottles being placed back into the sleeve on top of the net.  As insignificant as they seem these rules still must be enforced. There were far too many times to count that I had to advise a player to cover his elbow pad with his jersey. Super heavyweight Dave Brown (and super guy) used a very tight jersey sleeve from the top of his elbow down to a shortened cuff. This prevented much grab-hold by his opponents but also resulted in the lower part of his elbow pad to become exposed. Every time I asked Brownie to cover his elbow pad he complied without a fuss; albeit took some work to get it stretched for proper coverage. The Officials are instructed to enforce the "sweater tuck" when they notice it as follows: If a player comes onto the ice tucked in, he is warned and must comply (fix it immediately). Should it occur to the same player in that game there is no further warning and a minor penalty for delay of game results; following the assessment of the minor penalty should he return to the ice without making the necessary change he would be assessed a misconduct penalty; should this happen a third time, the player shall be assessed a game misconduct penalty (rule 9.5). It is also important for us to know that the Referees were reminded that sometimes the sweater might become tucked just through normal movement in the action of a game. This is not a violation. If however, it were to become the norm with the same player (for example one who comes onto the ice un-tucked but during the course of play always seems to end up with his sweater tucked) the Referees are to notify the League office. Hockey Ops personnel would then follow-up with the team equipment manager to ensure that the jersey is not too short for the player and perhaps needs to be altered. This may have been what took place with Bryan Little and Tobias Enstrom in the game you observed Will. If by chance the League office was unaware of these players sweaters frequently getting tucked your question here just might have raised a red-flag! Great job of "babysitting" Will. Luke Falk Stitched Jersey . Green-Ellis was Cincinnatis leading rusher each of the last two seasons. His role was reduced last year when Giovani Bernard was added to the backfield. Green-Ellis ran for 756 yards and a career-low 3. Harold Landry Stitched Jersey . Even that couldnt slow them down against the New Orleans Hornets. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook scored 31 points apiece and the Thunder overcame injuries to two key backups to beat New Orleans 101-93 Monday night for their 10th straight home win. BOSTON -- Chicagos D.J. Augustin put an end to a series of pesky rallies by the Boston Celtics. Augustin hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2:01 remaining, then continued a perfect night from the foul line while scoring a career-high 33 points for the Bulls in a 107-102 win over Boston. Augustin scored 15 in the fourth, including six points from the foul line as the Bulls held off the slumping Celtics. "Even though we didnt play great defence tonight, we pulled it out and we know what we have to fix," said Augustin, whose previous career high was 31 points scored against Philadelphia in January 2011. "I really dont follow that. Some of my teammates told me. Its a great accomplishment, but Im glad we got the win." Joakim Noah finished with 13 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds for Chicago two nights after it was routed at home by Portland. "That is how we have to win. Our margin of error is not great," Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Weve got to play with great intensity each and every night." The Bulls, who avoided losing consecutive games for the first time in nearly two months, will go for a three-game season sweep against the Celtics on Monday night in Chicago. Carlos Boozer scored 14, Kirk Hinrich and Mike Dunleavy added 11 points apiece and all five Chicago starters scored in double figures. Chicago made up for its rebounding struggles by making 25 of 31 foul shots, including 11 of 14 in the fourth quarter. "They were big, especially at the end," Augustin said. "If we had missed a couple of those foul shots, we dont know what the outcome of the game would have been because they made some big 3s at the end," Augustin said. Rajon Rondo had 17 points and 11 assists for Boston, which has lost four straight and nine of 10. Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger scored 16 points each for Boston and Sullinger puulled down 10 rebounds. Camo Titans Jerseys. . Kris Humphries added 14 points and eight rebounds as Boston outrebounded Chicago 39-31, but could not stop Augustin in the fourth. "You can look at it a couple of different ways, but we hate losing," Rondo said. "Weve got to find a way eventually to win some of these games. Theyre very winnable. Were just not closing the games the right way." The Celtics kept the Bulls from making a run early in the fourth quarter, matching nearly every basket and continuing to outrebound Chicago. Boston grabbed two offensive rebounds on one possession and Brandon Bass putback gave the Celtics an 87-86 lead. Noah drew a foul on the other end and hit both free throws, Hinrich added a 3-pointer and Augustin made a reverse layup to put the Bulls up 93-87 with 4:36 left. Rondo answered with a 3-pointer for Boston, then Sullinger blocked a layup attempt by Augustin to set up a fast-break 3-pointer by Green to pull Boston back within a basket. Green hit again from beyond-the-arc after a foul shot by Noah and the score was tied at 96 with 2:13 remaining. Augustin broke the tie with his third 3-pointer of the game, then made a steal on an inbounds play that all but ended Bostons chances. Augustin drew a foul and made both free throws, then added four more from the line as the Celtics were forced to foul. Augustins two free throws with 22 seconds left put Chicago up 105-99 and the margin was too much for Boston to overcome.

Humphries tumbled to the court after Boozer let go and was quickly issued the technical. ...
