CHARLOTTE, N. Cheap Phillies Jerseys .C. -- Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he fully supports quarterback Cam Newtons complaints about not being treated fairly as a pocket passer. Newton voiced the complaints?after Sundays 30-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.Rivera said Monday he has had ongoing discussions with NFL officials and commissioner Roger Goodell about late hits on the reigning NFL MVP.Rivera said he plans to talk to the league again after Sundays game, in which Newton became so frustrated that he said he plans to reach out to the commissioner himself.Its more about making sure he is getting the equal treatment and the protection he deserves as a quarterback in the pocket, Rivera said. I have reached out to the league, and the league has responded. And most recently I have reached out to the commissioner, and he has responded, and well continue to work through this and see how it goes.Rivera would not say how recently he talked to Goodell. But a league source told ESPNs Ed Werder that Rivera spoke to Goodell and at least two other league executives Monday.Goodell is believed to have promised to involve league vice president of officiating Dean Blandino and executive VP of game operations Troy Vincent in a thorough review of the concerns expressed by Rivera and Newton, the source told Werder. Furthermore, Goodell is expected to speak directly to Newton about the issue.This is something I work on every week, quite frankly, Rivera said. I dont talk about it because its between me and the league and this team. This is something now that has become public because of his statements. Cam is correct. I support him 100 percent in this. Hopefully we can get this rectified and corrected.Newton said Sunday that the late hits are taking the fun out of the game for him.At times, I dont even feel safe, Newton added. Enough is enough. I plan on talking to commissioner Goodell about this. Its not fun, and I dont know what I have to do.The breaking point for Newton came in the second half against Arizona when he took a hard shot to the knees. The play happened on third-and-goal from Arizonas 2-yard line. Defensive tackle Calais Campbell came in low as Newton released an incomplete pass to wide receiver Philly Brown.I could have torn an ACL, Newton said.Newton used the words bullcrap and horsecrap when saying officials arent making calls when he is hit in the pocket. Newton said other quarterbacks in the league get those calls more often.Newton hasnt had a roughing-the-passer penalty this season, except for one that was offset by an intentional grounding penalty in the season opener at Denver.This despite being hit an NFL-high 212 times during that span.According to Pro Football Talk, three roughing calls have been missed on Newton since the start of the 2013 season. Eleven quarterbacks have had more missed.It became the story of my life ever since I [entered the NFL], Newton said. Its always, Oh, we missed that, Im sorry. Thats bullcrap -- thats bullcrap.Rivera said Newton gets treated like former NBA center Shaquille ONeal because of his unusually large size for his position.Newton is 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds.Hes a bigger guy for that position, as opposed to some of the smaller guys, Rivera said. When they get hit, they roll around to the ground. When he gets hit, he absorbs them and it doesnt look as bad.I think sometimes that might be part of the reason that he doesnt get the calls he deserves or should get.Another reason for Riveras concern is that Newton has already missed one game with a concussion this season after a legal helmet-to-helmet hit at Atlanta.Newton was hit at least four times in the helmet during the season opener. Rivera was upset then, and he was upset again after the low hit Newton took against Arizona.I was, he said. Its tough, I get it, and its a very difficult job. It also begs to wanting an eighth referee on the field. It begs to having full-time referees on the field. It also begs to having a replay that can be implemented in some form.Rivera is a member of a subcommittee that reports to the rules committee. He plans to bring his suggestions up again at the next league meetings.I have been in this league 30 years, and I know how difficult it is, Rivera said. It is difficult for the referees, difficult for the coaches and difficult for the players. We have to work through it and have the right solution.If it means having an eighth referee or using replay, thats what it takes. But it is something the league is aware of.

The Gunners host the surprise league leaders in the first of a triple-header on Sky Sports 1, with the visitors currently five-points clear of Tottenham and Arsenal, who sit second and third respectively.Leicester were adrift at the bottom of the table last time the two sides met at the Emirates - Arsenal won 2-1 in February - but then went on to win seven of their last nine games to beat the drop. And Wenger says he recognised their quality even then.I remember chatting to (former Leicester manager) Nigel Pearson after that game, he said.I said, You cannot go down with that quality, and they finished well. They had already the strength and that has come out this season because they added two or three players who have more quality.I am pleased Claudio is going well but he has done well everywhere. He has never beaten me and I hope it will continue!They are certainly more convinced of their quality. When we played against them [in September, a 5-2 Arsenal win] they were top of the table, that has not changed, but their belief has been strengthened.
