    导出博客文章NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he was skeptical that having full-time
    referees would improve officiating in the league.The commissioner also said the
    league is looking at a number of ways to make broadcasts shorter, including
    cutting some advertising in response to television ratings being down this
    season.Goodell addressed the issues at a New York Times conference Thursday amid
    increased talk that having part-time referees has contributed to the NFLs
    officiating issues.Goodell said he thought having full-time officials would not
    eliminate the human element, adding that he would consider it only if I thought
    full-time officials would solve the problem.As you see, there are officiating
    mistakes in other leagues, and theyre full-time officials, Goodell said. I dont
    think thats going to eliminate the human element. What we want to do is get the
    best people on the field to officiate the game to the highest levels. Our
    officials work incredibly hard, and the reality is they do a great job. But
    theyre going to miss calls.Goodell also addressed the use of replays and its
    impact on the pace of the game.?How much replay do you want to have? Because it
    can slow the game down to a halt, he said. So it goes back to the pace of game.
    If you can challenge every play, were going to spend more of our time watching
    video. We replay all scoring plays, and I get this reaction from fans quite a
    bit, and partners. A touchdown play, everybodys focused on it, its a great play,
    its a great time to celebrate, but were not sure if its really a touchdown yet,
    so it takes the celebration out of it. So you have to find that balance in there
    where you use technology to improve officiating.The average length of
    regular-season games last season was 3 hours 8 minutes, six minutes longer than
    in 2008.New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton vented his frustrations over the
    leagues officiating last week, telling NBC Sports Radios Pro Football Talk Live
    that its madness the NFL doesnt employ full-time officials.There arent many
    Mondays that go by that there arent at least 28 to 30 head coaches that are
    ticked off about certain calls that were missed or werent made. You see it all
    the time, Payton said. And its the frustration that the system currently hasnt
    improved. We say it has, but it hasnt.Were the only league that has officials
    that have primary other jobs, which is really madness. We can pay these guys.
    They should be full-time NFL officials, and they should be working throughout
    the week, communicating. And I know they get their hour in here, their hour in
    there, and maybe even more than that. But by and large, every other sports
    league employs full-time officials. And ours, these guys all have other
    significant jobs. And I just think its very difficult to do with the speed of
    the game.Payton cited a pass interference non-call from the Atlanta Falcons loss
    to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8 and a pass interference call on the Saints
    against the Oakland Raiders in Week 1.NFL senior vice president of officiating
    Dean Blandino acknowledged two mistakes made by the officiating crew in Monday
    nights game between the Seahawks and Bills, including not flagging Seahawks
    cornerback Richard Sherman for unnecessary roughness as he attempted to block
    Bills kicker Dan Carpenters field goal attempt at the end of the first half.

    "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just
    think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont
    know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I
    would say we continue to have dialogue. Februarys All-Star Weekend in New
    Orleans is a long way away. Yet when it comes to Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine,
    everyone is already thinking about it and what might come. The two players who
    stole the show -- stole the whole All-Star Weekend in Toronto -- are still
    making their victory laps it seems.Neither LaVine nor Gordon is ready to commit
    to the Slam Dunk Contest in February. But the two-time dunk champion and his
    greatest challenger will meet on the court for the first time since that
    Saturday in Toronto when the Minnesota Timberwolves (1-5) visit the Orlando
    Magic (3-4) at Amway Center on Wednesday.The two players have been tied together
    more since that epic back-and-forth dunk contest. They ended up at promotional
    stops together in China during the offseason. They were part of a Nike
    commercial together, where naturally they were throwing each other
    alley-oops.Were both very casual, relaxed dudes, Gordon said after practice
    Tuesday. We chop it up, joke about it and laugh about it. We both know we put on
    a show.Gordon and LaVine indeed put on a show with their back-and-forth display
    of incredible athleticism that made the dunk contest the talk of the entire
    weekend. Many people believed Gordon should have won the contest. Even Zach
    LaVine has said he thought they should split the trophy.The two are still
    creating highlights on a nightly basis. Gordon busted out a 360 dunk in-game
    last week at Philadelphia and has some hair-raising dunks and alley-oops
    already.But the question for these two young players next is how do they turn
    their dunk contest success into actual production on the court?LaVine so far has
    looked like he is beginning to find his fit.dddddddddddd Now relieved of
    Minnesotas point guard experiment, LaVine is averaging 17.7 points per game and
    is shooting 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.He scored 31 points in a game
    against the Memphis Grizzlies last week and had 17 points in the Timberwolves
    119-110 loss in Brooklyn on Tuesday.I think each year hes gotten better, coach
    Tom Thibodeau told Derek James of ESPN 1500 in Minneapolis following the win
    over the Grizzlies last week. Hes comfortable and puts a lot of work into his
    game. He spends a lot of time shooting. I think he has a much better
    understanding of the NBA game now and I think theres a lot of room for him to
    grow, too. I think he can be terrific defensively.Gordon too has had to evolve
    his game. He has found that process a little more difficult.The Magic are
    testing him out at the small forward position and playing him on the perimeter
    more. With the increased playing time and role, he is averaging 11.6 points per
    game and shooting a career-best 36.4 percent from beyond the arc. There are
    still plenty of hiccups and inefficiencies in the 21-year-olds game.Both LaVine
    and Gordon, though, are young. Their insane athleticism is a reminder of that.
    The two are forever bound in that incredible evening in Toronto.Now the two are
    looking to expand their games and help their young teams take the next step
    closer to the playoffs. ' ' '
