SAO PAULO - Brazil football officials and first-division teams have met to try to clarify a controversial change in the way referees have been giving handball decisions, hoping to ease criticism from clubs, coaches and the media.The number of penalty kicks awarded has increased significantly since a new recommendation from the Brazilian confederation prompted referees to be more rigorous when giving handball, especially inside the penalty area.The change created confusion and drew complaints from virtually all parties involved. Referees considered going on strike because of the lack of respect for officials.In the meeting on Thursday that lasted nearly two hours in Rio de Janeiro, the confederation said it has not changed international football laws but warned players they could be penalized for handball even if the contact was not deliberate.The law hasnt changed, said Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda, a former FIFA official used as an instructor by the confederation. There was some miscommunication, some people didnt quite understand the recommendations.The confederation insists it did not tell referees to give a free kick every time the ball touches a hand or arm, but said players should not put themselves at risk of blocking a shot with their hands when inside the area.Players need to show the referees that they are trying to avoid hand contact, said Larrionda, who refereed in two World Cups.He was the official who didnt see Frank Lampards shot cross the goal-line in Englands 4-1 loss to Germany in the second round of the 2010 tournament.There have been disputed handball decisions in nearly every round since the new recommendations were introduced in Brazil a few weeks ago.Referees started blowing for handball almost every time the ball touched a players hand inside the penalty area, apparently regardless of intention to block shots or crosses. Some referees are being more rigorous than others, prompting even more confusion and complaints.Referees, saying that they are only following the confederations advice, last week threatened to halt the Brazilian league unless football officials and the nations sports tribunal took serious actions against those not respecting the officials.When told about the way referees have been officiating in Brazil, FIFA head of refereeing Massimo Busacca recently told Brazilian media that they didnt appear to be following FIFAs recommendations. He said its always up to the referees to try to decide whether players are intentionally using their hands or arms to handle the ball.Referees officiating in the league this weekend, as well as retired referees, participated in Thursdays meeting to speak to the players, who have also been demanding more consistency in the calls. Members of the media also participated.The confederation used nearly 30 videos a€” including from the World Cup, the Confederations Cup, and the Copa Libertadores a€” to try to clarify how handballs are being applied.The confederation did not say whether the meeting came in response to the referees threat to go on strike.___Follow Tales Azzoni at http://www.twitter.com/tazzoni Adidas NMD Human Race Cheap . -- The Seattle Seahawks and wide receiver Sidney Rice have agreed to terms on a deal.

The improving big man from Lithuania set the tone and then DeMar DeRozan sealed the deal. "I was really excited to play Enes (Kanter). Hes a good buddy of mine and weve played since I was 15 years old. We talked all the game," said Valanciunas, who had 18 points and nine rebounds to help the Toronto Raptors turn back the Utah Jazz 94-79 on Monday night for their fourth win in the last five games. "We juiced him up a little bit this morning, teasing him about how Kanter got after him in the Euroleague. So he came out and played, really muscled," Toronto coach Dwane Casey said after the second-year centre scored the Raptors first six points. DeRozan scored 23 points as Toronto continued to surprise away from home. "Honestly, I think there is no pressure on the road," DeRozan said. DeRozan looked to get his teammates involved in the first half but once Kyle Lowry left with a knee injury, the new All-Star took matters into his own hands with nine points in the fourth quarter to quell a Jazz comeback. The Raptors scored 13 of the games final 16 points. "I just pick and choose. I try and be aggressive. Try and rebound, try to pass to my teammates. I dont just try and go out there to score every time down," DeRozan said. Valanciunas and Amir Johnson, who had 11 points and 11 rebounds, exposed the Jazz interior defence without Derrick Favours (hip). "Everyone gets along together. We all just kind of click. You usually dont find that," Johnson said. Marvin Williams scored 23 points and Alec Burks had 20 off the bench but it wasnt enough to keep the Jazz from their third straight loss, their worst span since a four-game skid from Dec. 4-9. Greivis Vasquez, who had 12 points, opened the fourth quarter with a floater to give the Raptors a 73-62 lead. Burks made back-to-back driving layups to power an 8-0 run to get the Jazz within four points for the first time since early in the second quarter. But the Raptors used their own 11-2 surge to clinch the victory. DeRozan had seven straight for the Raptors in the stretch. But the Raptors used their own 11-2 surge to clinch the victory. DeRozan had seven straight for the Raptors in the stretch.dddddddddddd "Were playing for each other. Each of us want the best for the others on the team. We care about each other and have great chemistry," Vasquez said. The Raptors had dropped seven of eight at Utah by an average of 14.9 points, but controlled this one almost all the way. Torontos last win here since 2006 was a 111-106 double-overtime victory on Jan. 25, 2012. DeRozan has been effective no matter where he plays, especially in games in the States, averaging 27 points over his last seven on the road. Valanciunas also continued his upward trend with another strong game on the interior, with four offensive rebounds and many more plays where he kept the ball alive for Johnson. "Thats the challenge that hes got to take to be a big-time player in this league," Casey said. The Jazz hoped to awaken Gordon Hayward and Trey Burke from their slumps but the pair, which has been shooting less than 30 per cent, combined to make just 7 of 25 shots and commit seven turnovers. "I thought we had great shots. We missed some really good looks we have been making," Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said after his team had a season-low 10 assists. Lowry had two points on 1-of-8 shooting before leaving to the locker room for good in the third quarter with right knee pain. He will be evaluated on Tuesday to see if he can play either of the final two games of this five-game Western Conference road trip. The Raptors (14-12) have as many road wins as any team in the Eastern Conference, tied with Miami and Indiana. They have never finished a season above .500 away from home. Favours injured hip prevented him from playing and without their starting centre, the Jazz have lost all six contests this year. Kanter had 10 points for Utah but was pulled after missing a defensive assignment and played just 20 minutes. The Jazz are 1-21 with the big man from Turkey in the starting lineup.
