Gold Coasts finals push has been dealt a major blow with key forward Ryan James facing a one-week ban for a high shot that broke the jaw of Wests Tigers star James Tedesco. Jaime Garcia Jersey .The NRL match review committee on Sunday stung James with a grade two careless high tackle after collecting Tedesco in the 59th minute of Saturdays last-gasp win over the Tigers in Campbelltown.James right arm hit the face of Tedesco, who was falling after collecting a bomb in the backfield, however James wasnt put on report and was only penalised for being offside from the kick.Tedesco was taken to hospital where he was confirmed to have broken his jaw in two places and is now out for the rest of the season, cruelling the Tigers finals hopes.The grade two charge carries 125 base penalty points, however a prior non-similar offence in the past two years lifted the points total to 150, and 112 with an early guilty plea.The Titans now have until midday on Tuesday to decide whether to contest the charge at the judiciary.A weeks suspension would sideline James, the Titans best forward this year, for next Saturdays crucial clash against last-placed Newcastle at Hunter Stadium.Gold Coast, who sit just one point above the Warriors and the Tigers in eighth spot, need to win to consolidate their place in the top eight with just three games remaining in the regular season.Their final two games are against fellow top-eight contenders Penrith and North Queensland.David Shillington was charged for making dangerous contact on Mitchell Moses in the 35th minute, however the Titans front-rower can escape suspension with an early guilty plea.Meanwhile, South Sydney forward Zane Musgrove is looking at missing up to two games after committing a shoulder charge on Warriors prop Albert Vete.Hit with a grade one charge, hell miss one game with an early guilty plea. J.A. Happ Jersey .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. Blue Jays Jerseys From China . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. http://www.bluejaysjerseyscheap.com/?tag=randal-grichuk-jersey . -- Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover. WASHINGTON -- U.S. Olympic medal winners will soon get a tax break, but not everyone thinks getting rid of the so-called victory tax is a good idea.I promise you, this is bad policy, said Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., who cast the lone vote against a bill that would block the IRS from taxing most Olympic winnings.President Barack Obama is expected to sign the measure, which repeals a tax on cash prizes awarded to U.S. medal winners: $25,000 for gold, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze.The measure sailed through the House and Senate, winning final approval Thursday just as Obama welcomed several hundred members of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams to the White House. The U.S. won 121 medals at the Rio Olympics, including 46 gold medals.A former college rower who once tried out for the U.S. national team, Himes said he has nothing against the Olympics or Olympic athletes. But he called the tax measure a feel-good bill that unnecessarily complicates an already complex tax code.Whats next? he asked. Tax exemptions for Nobel Prize winners? Astronauts? Inner-city teachers? This is no way to make tax policy: I feel good so Ill give you a tax break.Supporters call the bill a matter of fairness.Under current law, athletes who return home with a medal for Team USA must pay a penalty for their success, said Rep. Robert Dold, R-Ill., the bills chief House sponsor. The bipartisan bill ensures that these athletes can remain ffocused on fulfilling their Olympic and Paralympic dreams without the fear of getting a huge tax bill in the mail, Dold said. Roberto Alomar Jersey. .Many countries subsidize their Olympic athletes, added Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The least we can do is make sure our athletes dont get hit with a tax bill for winning a medal, he said.The bill was amended in the House to allow taxes on high-profile athletes such as swimmer Michael Phelps who earn more than $1 million a year.Himes applauded the change, but said the bill remains an election-year stunt.Its an unpopular Congress trying to bask in the reflected glory of Olympic heroes. But its still bad policy, he said.While no other lawmaker voted against the bill, several have told him privately I wish Id been with you, Himes said.John Shaban, a Republican who is running against Himes, said the Democrats vote showed he was disconnected from the sentiment of the country and the rest of the Congress.Really is that how bad things are? That we have to tax the Olympic athletes on their medals, Shaban told the Hartford Courant.Himes and other Democrats spend all their time beating up on the one presidential candidate who says how we never win anymore. And if we do win theyre going to tax you, Shaban said.---Follow Matthew Daly: https://twitter.com/MatthewDalyWDC ;Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
