Nations League shows VARreaching beyond its original scope

first_imgBy Brian HomewoodPORTO (Reuters) – Former UEFA president Michel Platini always opposed the introduction of technology in football because he felt that, once it gained a foothold, it would quickly expand and change the character of the sport altogether.Football, he warned, was about to open Pandora’s Box.Several years later, the Frenchman may feel he has been proved right by the pervasive use of video assistant referees (VAR).When it initially presented VAR in 2016, soccer’s rule-making body IFAB said the purpose was to stamp out glaring refereeing mistakes such as Diego Maradona’s Hand of God goal in the 1986 World Cup. But, less than 18 months after its introduction, it has turned into what seems a search for refereeing perfection.Matches are now stopped for two to three minutes and goal celebrations put on hold while VAR officials in a room full of television monitors conduct a forensic examination for the slightest hint of contact or offside in the build up. England had two goals disallowed after VAR reviews at the Nations League in Portugal when not even their opponents complained of an infraction.Callum Wilson’s late goal against Switzerland on Sunday was chalked off after VAR spotted that he pushed Manuel Akanji in the buildup while Jesse Lingard’s effort against the Netherlands was ruled out because part of his body was a fraction offside. Similarly, in the women’s World Cup, Griedge Mbock Bathy had a wonderful strike for France disallowed against South Korea because the tip of her foot was ahead of the last defender even though the rest of her body was line.All three decisions were technically correct but was that what VAR was intended for? And were they in the spirit of the offside rule which is designed primarily to stop forwards goal-hanging?When preliminary testing began, IFAB’s technical director David Elleray said that “VAR isn’t designed to end referee mistakes but it’s to deal with those very clear match-changing ones.”As an example, he cited Thierry Henry’s goal, scored after he controlled the ball with his arm, which took France to the 2010 World Cup at Ireland’s expense — hardly the same as a player having their finger three centimetres offside.OBVIOUS ERRORSIn a briefing to reporters earlier this year, UEFA’s refereeing chief Roberto Rosetti said that the incidents were reviewed if they obvious to VAR officials — not simply players, coaches or spectators.Linesmen are now told to keep their flags down when they suspect an offside so the incident can be reviewed in the studio once the move finishes, effectively reducing their role. Sometimes, VAR can be as controversial as a decision taken with the naked eye, such as the penalty awarded to England against Scotland in Sunday’s women’s World Cup match for handball by Nicola Docherty when there seemed no way she could get her arm out of the way. Equally contentious was a penalty given to Switzerland against Portugal in the Nations League for the slightest of tugs on Steven Zuber.Former World Cup final referee Arnaldo Cesar Coelho warned last year that slow motion could make fouls and handballs appear deliberate when they really were not. “Slow motion distorts the incident because it does not always the reflect the intensity of the movement,” he said.The Zuber incident raised another awkward question — when to stop play for a review — after Portugal immediately broke down the other end and were awarded a penalty of their own. Amid huge confusion, Portugal’s penalty was revoked and a spot kick awarded to Switzerland.Portugal coach Fernando Santos suggested that VAR was a good idea — but only if properly used. “I think VAR is important, I think it can help but those who are in charge have to pay attention to this,” he said. “Otherwise we will all start saying that VAR is no good when it could be a really useful tool.”last_img read more

NFL Draft 2019: UCLA tight end Caleb Wilson takes ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ honors

first_img NFL Draft 2019: Seahawks’ Russell Wilson shares unique connection to team’s 4th-round pick NFL Draft 2019: All 254 picks by team In a fitting tribute Saturday, Succop announced this year’s Mr. Irrelevant in front of the Nashville crowd.”I gave (critics) a lot of ammunition,” Succop told the crowd before announcing the pick. “I was a field goal kicker, and my last name was Succop.”Wilson caught 60 passes for 965 yards last season to lead UCLA in both categories. Both marks are records for a tight end in UCLA history.Before he heads off to Cardinals training camp, Wilson gets some great door prizes for becoming Mr. Irrelevant 2019. He will be honored this summer with a week-long series of events in Newport Beach, Calif. He’ll visit Disneyland, sail in a regatta, do interviews, and basically celebrate his status as last man off the draft board. The annual celebration, founded in 1976 by former NFL wide receiver Paul Salata, helps raise money for charity.The week concludes with the presentation of the Lowsman Trophy — a parody of the Heisman, obviously — only the trophy features a player fumbling a football. On an odd note, notes the team has picked a Mr. Irrelevant three times … and all three players were tight ends. They also drafted BYU’s Tevita Ofahengaue in 2001 and Louisville’s Gerald Christian in 2015.center_img It’s every kid’s worst nightmare on the playground — two captains pick their teams, and as the number of remaining players dwindles, they each offer up a silent prayer they won’t be the last one selected.Someone has to be the last player selected, and that’s the case in the NFL Draft as well, only the final player taken in each draft has come to be celebrated in a strange way with the bizarre title, “Mr. Irrelevant.” Meet Mr. Irrelevant of the 2019 NFL Draft, UCLA tight end Caleb Wilson, who was selected with the final pick of the seventh round (No. 254 overall) by the Arizona Cardinals.Most Mr. Irrelevants don’t pan out, either failing to make the roster, or going on to short, mostly anonymous careers. But there have been exceptions. Kicker Ryan Succop, the final player chosen in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs, is still active 10 years later, with the Titans.
