NRL referee Ben Cummins has once again found himself in the firing line after Paul G

NRL referee Ben Cummins has once again found himself in the firing line after Paul Green launched an attack on the whistleblower in the wake of North Queenslands 16-8 loss to Melbourne.After being on the end of Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinsons infamous ANZAC Day spray, Cummins was once again accused on disrespectful behaviour by the Cowboys at 1300SMILES Stadium on Saturday night.The Cowboys complained of being blow off when approaching the decorated official for an explanation and the Storm being given the benefit of a host of contentious calls.There were a number of 50-50 calls that didnt go our way, Green said.There was a lot of discussion earlier in the year from the Roosters coach Trent Robinson about the way the head ref Ben Cummins engages with players.I thought there was probably evidence of that again tonight.I thought we were entitled to query some of those decisions, particularly when you see the replays.While Greens post-match comments lacked the venom of Robinsons tirade, he is facing the prospect of a fine given his comments could be interpreted as an attack on Cummins credibility.There were a couple of contentious calls there, which I can cop, as long as they go both ways, Green said.Jimmy Tamou was penalised there for a Cameron Smith error and from what I could see there was no way he was not square. That gives them field position and I think they got a try off the back of it.Javid Bowen plays the ball and clearly their foot is involved in that and yet they call a scrum.Theyre the calls. I dont think they evened out.Michael Morgan, when he got thrown into touch, if that had been the tryline and they had picked him back and thrown him into the in-goal, it would have been a different decision.Again, Im not here to whinge about refs decisions.Cowboys stand-in skipper Matt Scott echoed Greens frustrations, saying the rub of the green went Melbournes way.A couple of the calls that I thought were incorrect, you look at the replays and you see a foot hit the ball out of Jango (Bowen)s hand, Scott said.Im asking `shouldnt he be allowed room to play in the ruck? And Im just getting blown off.Thats a bit hard to cop when I see the replays showing Im correct. 49ers Jerseys China .

Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. Nick Mullens Jersey . The deal is pending a physical, assistant general manager Bobby Evans said. Traded from Seattle to Baltimore on Aug. 30, Morse also can play first base and right field to give manager Bruce Bochy some flexibility in writing his lineup.

The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July.
