  Al Gore and Gov. Cuomo blast Trump's offshore drilling plan ALBANY, N.Y. — Former Vice President Al Gore and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are denouncing the Trump administration's proposal to open up new areas to offshore drilling.The two Democrats spoke Friday in New York City at an event focused on the proposal.

He added that expanded drilling would set back efforts to combat climate change.

Rule proposal would give NFL officiating office power to eject players from games. How many times have we seen officials miss an egregious non- football act, which allows the violator to One can also argue that if players know they can be ejected after an instant replay , they'll be less likely

The league’s competition committee, meeting this week in Palm Beach, Fla., will propose a rule that would permit the officiating department monitoring games from New York to eject players from games for egregious “non-football acts," NFL executive vice president Troy Vincent told USA TODAY Sports on Monday.

Remember when New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski dove to spear Buffalo Bills rookie cornerback Tre’Davious White in the back last year but remained in the game? Or recall Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans running across the field to take a shot at New Orleans Saints rookie corner Marshon Lattimore long after a play?

Gronkowski and Evans were ultimately suspended for one game by the NFL for their actions, but it seemed incredulous that neither was immediately ejected by the on-site officials, who exclusively hold the power to disqualify a player under the current system.

If the new proposal passes, there will be another layer of discipline in play, supported by instant replay reviews.

“We are looking to address what’s obvious to coaches, players and fans,” Vincent said.

The rule could also be used, Vincent added, to identify culprits during brawls. An ejection would not prohibit the league from issuing a subsequent suspension.

Referees sometimes carry the philosophy that rather than ejecting key players — see Odell Beckham vs. Josh Norman, circa 2015 — they would allow the league office to handle the discipline.

NFL owners will meet next week in Orlando, and 24 of them would have  to approve for the new measure to go into effect.

The competition committee is also crafting a rule for consideration that would provide more clarity for what constitutes a catch, including a tweak of the language. And, in concert with increasing efforts to address safety concerns, it's pushing a point of emphasis (which won’t require a vote) that would provide for more protection of quarterbacks or ball carriers when they give themselves up on a play. Another point calls for quicker whistles to prevent unnecessary shots on players halted by a pileup.

The NFL’s Annual League meeting is taking place March 25-28, and it’s bringing about some rule changes for the 2018 season. Owners started voting on new proposals Tuesday.
