    导出博客文章Do the right thing.Kangaroos utility Michael Morgan says the simple motto is the
    only safeguard for concerned NRL players after an increase in illegally obtained
    footage being shopped around to the media.The Rugby League Players Association
    has taken a hardline stance on the issue, saying they will support legal action
    from NRL players who believe their privacy has been abused or if theyve been
    subject to an extortion attempt.Last week footage of Parramatta star Corey
    Norman and an unnamed Brisbane player was offered to networks for a large sum
    but was turned down.Queensland State of Origin star Morgan admitted the trend
    was a worry but believed the onus was still on players to behave themselves.It
    is unfortunate that some people are going out of their way nearly to make money
    out of it - its frustrating and annoying, Morgan said.But we are in control of
    that, no one else is.It does come back to us.Sydney Roosters coach Trent
    Robinson on Sunday called on the NRL and RLPA to do more to protect the rights
    of players.His call came after Mitchell Pearce was suspended earlier this year
    after footage of the drunken Roosters halfback was obtained at a private party
    without his permission and aired without his consent.North Queensland pivot
    Morgan admitted sometimes it did not take much for situations with the public to
    get out of hand but was convinced good decisions by players would avoid any
    future controversy.I have been out and you see how things can go wrong, he
    said.But we have a very good group up here (North Queensland).We are pretty well
    behaved and pretty switched on, know when is the right time to do some things
    and not others.Its all about the position you are in and the only person in
    control of that is us.

    . 1, meaning problems for the doping controls at both major
    international sports events next year. The World Anti-Doping Agency
    provisionally suspended the Moscow Antidoping Center on Sunday, saying its
    operations must improve or a six-month ban on the facilitys accreditation will
    be imposed.

    . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the
    most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain.
    . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke
    Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

    Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on March

    . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means
    Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place,
    could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion
    on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either
    side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place
    United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones
    that forced them off. DURHAM, N.C. -- Virginia Tech took the lead with some
    Beamerball. The Hokies kept hold of it with another program staple -- some tough
    defense at the right time.Adonis Alexander returned a blocked field goal 75
    yards for the early, go-ahead touchdown, and No. 19 Virginia Tech held on to
    beat Duke 24-21 on Saturday and remain in control of the ACCs Coastal Division
    race.We took what could have been a really difficult situation, and the kids did
    a great job, first-year Tech coach Justin Fuente said.It was classic Beamerball
    -- even without Frank Beamer, whos in his first year of retirement.Travon
    McMillian ran 14 yards for a TD and Jerod Evans passed for 192 yards and scored
    on a 7-yard run, carrying three Duke defenders along for the ride, for the
    Hokies (7-2, 5-1, No. 23 AP).Daniel Jones pulled Duke within three points with
    his second touchdown run of the game, a 2-yarder with 7:10 to play.The Blue
    Devils got the ball back with 5:55 remaining after forcing a three-and-out, but
    it looked like they gave it right back when Shaun Wilson fumbled at the 35. But
    that decision was overturned after a review determined Virginia Tech rover
    Terrell Edmunds should have been called for targeting, giving the Blue Devils
    the ball at midfield.These Hokies didnt buckle. Dukes next three plays netted
    three yards before the Blue Devils punted back, and Virginia Tech ran out the
    final 4:06, with Evans converting the game-sealing third-and-3 with less than 2
    minutes to go.I was pleased with the way the team responded after that event,
    Fuente said. That was an opportunity to kind of let the air out of your balloon,
    so to speak, and it certainly did not happen. The defense responded, the offense
    got the ball and ran the clock out to finish the ball game.Jones, who finished
    with 148 yards passing, also scored from 7 yards out late in the third quarter
    to make it 21-14, before Joey Slye extended the Hokies lead to 10 with a 27-yard
    field goal on the next possession.Wilson had a short touchdown run for the Blue
    Devils (3-6, 0-5), who have lost three straight and are 1-4 since upsetting
    Notre Dame.THE TAKEAWAYVirginia Tech: The path to the Coastal Division title
    still runs through Blacksburg, thanks to that 34-3 win at North Carolina last
    month. Nothing came easy after they went up 21-7 in the second quarter, but at
    least the Hokies handled success better than last time andd now they will wrap
    up their first ACC title game berth since 2011 with home wins against Georgia
    Tech next week and Virginia on Nov.dddddddddddd 26.Duke: The Blue Devils have to
    be in win-or-else mode the rest of the way if they want to extend their
    school-record postseason streak to five years. They could reach a bowl game with
    a 5-7 record because of their high APR scores -- and if theres a shortage of
    six-win teams -- but at this point, theres a serious question about whether Duke
    will make it to the five-win mark. What we have is a good football team without
    a very good record, coach David Cutcliffe said.POLL IMPLICATIONSThis victory may
    not send the Hokies much higher, but at least they made enough timely plays to
    avoid a repeat of the Syracuse loss last month that sent them tumbling out of
    the Top 25.PLAY OF THE DAYWith the score tied at 7 -- and two snaps after Jones
    misfired on a sure-thing touchdown pass that would have given Duke the lead --
    the Blue Devils brought in AJ Reed, who to that point had made just 3 of 7 field
    goals all season, to try a 30-yarder.Greg Stroman came off the left edge to
    block it, and after Alexander scooped it up and took off downfield, Stroman
    delivered a crushing block on Reed that helped spring him for Techs second
    special-teams TD of the season and first off a blocked field goal since
    2005.INJURY REPORTStroman did not return after he injured his right ankle during
    a hit from Jeremy McDuffie while fielding a second-quarter punt. He was carried
    to the sideline and carted to the locker room. Fuente did not provide any
    details on Stromans status.QUICK HITSEvans was held without a touchdown pass for
    the first time this season. ... Virginia Tech was held to 399 total yards. The
    only time the Hokies finished with fewer this season was in the victory at North
    Carolina in hurricane conditions.UP NEXTVirginia Tech: Faces Georgia Tech next
    Saturday before making a visit to Notre Dame.Duke: Has a short week to prepare
    for its fiercest rival, North Carolina, on Thursday night.---Follow Joedy
