Hawkeye chosen by Premier League

first_img League sources have confirmed the Hawkeye system was ratified at meeting of the 20 top-flight clubs in London. A German system, GoalControl, has also been under consideration after submitting a tender. The decision means Hawkeye’s camera-based system will be in place at Premier League grounds and at Wembley Stadium from next season. Press Association The Premier League will used goal-line technology provided by British-based firm Hawkeye from next season, it has been agreed.center_img Hawkeye, which was sold to technology giant Sony two years ago, already provides systems for tennis and cricket. The Premier League provided seed money to help Hawkeye develop a goal-line technology system back in 2007, but there was no longer a formal relationship with the company. League chiefs made their recommendation based on both cost and ease of implementation and use. Earlier this month FIFA chose GoalControl, which is also a camera-based system, for the Confederations Cup in Brazil in June and next year’s World Cup finals. Two other systems, also German, have also been licensed by FIFA but they both use magnetic sensors rather than cameras. Former Arsenal and FA vice-chairman David Dein, who has long campaigned for goal-line technology, claimed every top-flight referee in England was in favour of having a system. He said at the Soccerex conference in Manchester: “The Premier League will be the first league in Europe to introduce it.”I have been on this campaign for six or seven years and now it’s going to happen. “The referees need help, the camera will always beat the eye, and every referee in the Premier League is in favour of it.” last_img read more

Syracuse football preseason storylines, No. 7: Rebuilding the offensive line

first_imgWith Syracuse football training camp a few weeks away, The Daily Orange beat writers, Chris Libonati, Jon Mettus and Matt Schneidman, will analyze one of the top 10 preseason storylines, top 10 position battles or reveal one of 10 player files each day. Check out and follow along here to countdown to camp.There are two tall tasks ahead for Syracuse’s offensive line: replace three starters from last season and adapt to the no-huddle, spread offense that head coach Dino Babers is installing. Neither will be very easy.Ivan Foy, Rob Trudo and Nick Robinson have all graduated. They started the final game of the year at left tackle, right guard and left guard, respectively. Even Seamus Shanley, who earned the starting right guard spot out of training camp in 2015, is gone from the team.What’s left is redshirt senior Michael Lasker at left tackle, redshirt sophomore Aaron Roberts at left guard and redshirt senior Jason Emerich at center, according to the post-spring depth chart. Redshirt senior Omari Palmer is slotted to start at right guard and redshirt junior Jamar McGloster is positioned at right tackle.MORE PRESEASON STORYLINES:AdvertisementThis is placeholder textStoryline No. 8: Running back depthStoryline No. 9: Revamped conditioningStoryline No. 10: Tight ends factoring in offense Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on July 23, 2016 at 11:21 am Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus Between the five of them, only two have started more than one game in their careers — Emerich and Palmer were starters last year. None of the other three played in more than three games last year. Lasker had played nine games in 2013 and 2014, but redshirted last season with an injury.“The coaches have high expectations of us,” Emerich said at the Atlantic Coast Conference Football Kickoff on Friday. “We have high expectations of ourselves.”Babers’ expectation of the offensive line is to get into much better shape than what he observed in the spring. Some of the linemen need to lose weight and others need to build muscle, Babers said after one of the spring practices.Success with the offense revolves around the offensive line, Babers said during an NBC Sports Radio with Newy Scruggs on Tuesday. And the transition from an option-based offense last year will be the most daunting task for the coaching staff, he said.“You’re only as good as those elephants are,” he said.The conditioning of the linemen coming into fall camp will play a big role in who starts come Sept. 2.

Resting Kobe poses problems

first_imgCLEVELAND – Even in a game Friday where Kobe Bryant scored 25 points and missed more shots than he made, the Lakers showed how desperately they miss the superstar guard when he is not on the floor. Although Bryant sat for a combined 5 minutes and 11 seconds, the Lakers were outscored 15-2 in that time. Lakers coach Phil Jackson has been playing a lineup of Jordan Farmar, Sasha Vujacic, Maurice Evans and Ronny Turiaf with starter Lamar Odom when Bryant has gone to the bench. “I’ve been leaving Lamar out there with them,” Jackson said. “I think I’m going to stop that. Just let them go really on their own because they play really well and move the ball well and I’ve saddled them with Lamar. It’s been unfortunate. He’s not been carrying the load.” Jackson also will have to decide today in Cleveland whether to start forward Vladimir Radmanovic, who was benched for the final 21 minutes of Friday’s loss in Toronto. The Cavaliers start two guards alongside LeBron James. Jackson said he would open today with Bryant against Larry Hughes. Radmanovic missed all four shots he took Friday and struggled to guard the Raptors’ Chris Bosh. He said Saturday: “I don’t have a big credit with the coach. I’ve got to get my stuff straight before he makes some changes.” Even with the Lakers more than 50 games into the season, Radmanovic still is searching for answers. He said he is not bothered by the hand injury he suffered in training camp. It’s more a matter of getting off to a good start when he plays. “It’s been a tough season,” Radmanovic said. “I’ve probably played the last minutes (of games) my whole career. It’s been frustrating. I’m just trying to be a team player right now and put my agenda on the side. Just have the game come to me. It’s been tough but I don’t want to force anything.” center_img WALTON OUT With his sprained right ankle struggling to improve, forward Luke Walton will be re-examined Monday in Los Angeles by specialist Kenneth Jung. Walton won’t play today and is likely out through the all-star break, Jackson said. Walton, who has missed eight games with the injury, tried to do some running Saturday but said his ankle was still “throbbing” whenever he tried to push off it. “It’s frustrating not being able to play,” Walton said. “I thought I would be able to play on this road trip. Now it’s just not going to happen.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

Remembering Challenger victims, 20 years later

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card On Saturday, 250 people joined a ceremony at Kennedy Space Center to honor Scobee, pilot Mike Smith, astronauts Ellison Onizuka, Judy Resnik, Ron McNair and Greg Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe, who was supposed to be the first teacher in space. Rodgers, along with NASA associate administrator Bill Gerstenmaier, laid the wreath at the base of the Space Mirror Memorial, a tall granite-finished wall engraved with the names of the Challenger astronauts, the seven astronauts killed when space shuttle Columbia disintegrated over Texas in 2003 and the three Apollo 1 astronauts killed in a fire during a 1967 launch pad test. The audience included some relatives of the Columbia and Apollo 1 crews, as well as the widows of Challenger astronauts Smith and Onizuka. Supporters stood in line to lay flowers at the side of the monument. “I have lived around the space program my whole life and it’s a fitting tribute for those who made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Susan Valek, who works for a Kennedy Space Center contractor. The investigation into the Challenger accident revealed a space agency more concerned with schedules and public relations than with safety and sound decision-making. CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – The widow of Challenger’s commander laid a wreath of roses and carnations at a memorial honoring fallen astronauts Saturday, the 20th anniversary of the day the space shuttle lifted off from a launch pad a few miles away and blew apart 73 seconds later. June Scobee Rodgers, whose husband Dick Scobee was the shuttle’s commander, recalled waiting for the launch that chilly morning with other family members of the crew, including 12 children. “Our lives were shattered, but over the years that followed the families persevered with tremendous success,” Rodgers said. “I believe those parents launched aboard Challenger would be proud of their children.” Seven astronauts died in the explosion, and the images of the shuttle bursting apart were replayed over and over to a shocked nation. The explosion eventually was blamed on a poorly designed gasket in one of the shuttle’s solid fuel boosters that hardened in cold weather. The temperature at Challenger’s liftoff was 36 degrees. Engineers for a NASA contractor had protested launching at that temperature, but they were overruled by their managers under perceived pressure from the space agency. “It is our responsibility, individually and collectively, to make good decisions,” Gerstenmaier told the audience. “As engineers, the machines we build can do great things but can also cause great harm.” Rodgers said the Challenger accident hadn’t changed her opinion about the importance of space exploration. “Without risk, there’s no discovery, there’s no new knowledge, there’s no bold adventure,” Rodgers said. “The greatest risk is to take no risk.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
