How Video Assistant Referees (VAR) are Changing Football
The use of video assistant referees (VAR) in football has caused much debate in recent years. With technology now being used to help officiate games, there is no denying that the game of football is undergoing a major transformation. As such, it's important to consider the implications that VAR has had on the sport. In this blog post, we will discuss how VAR is changing football and the impact it has had on the game. We will look at the pros and cons of VAR and what the future of football officiating looks like with this technology. At its core, the aim of VAR is to correct clear and obvious errors in certain match-changing situations. These include goals, penalties, red cards, and cases of mistaken identity. The system is operated by a team of video assistant referees (VARs), who monitor the game from a video operation room and can advise the on-field referee on any potential incidents that may require review. The introduction of VAR has brought both positive and negative impacts on the game of football. One of the main advantages is that it has helped to reduce the number of incorrect decisions made by match officials. This has resulted in greater fairness and consistency in decision-making, and has ensured that crucial moments in matches are decided correctly. VAR helps to ensure more accurate and fairer decisions from the officials. Through a combination of cameras, angles, and monitors, the referee can review incidents on the pitch in slow motion and zoom in for a closer look at decisions that may be too close to call in real-time. This allows them to make more informed decisions about handballs, offsides, and other infringements that could decide the outcome of a match. In a friendly game between Japan vs USA, VAR helped to reduce instances of diving and simulation, as players are now more wary of attempting to deceive the officials. This has led to a cleaner and more honest game, which is ultimately more enjoyable for players and fans alike. VAR has also helped in reducing the amount of time wasted due to disputes or protests from players and managers whihc has helped to speed up the game, allowing for more action and fewer delays. However, there have also been some negative effects of VAR on the game. One of the biggest criticisms is that the technology has led to lengthy delays and disruptions in the flow of the game. This is because the review process can take several minutes, and can often result in players, coaches, and fans being left in suspense while the decision is being made. Furthermore, there has also been a significant amount of confusion and misunderstanding surrounding the use of VAR. Many fans and experts have questioned the consistency of the decisions made using the technology, and there have been numerous occasions where the wrong decisions have been made despite the use of VAR. Despite these challenges, the use of VAR in football is here to stay. While there may be some teething issues, the technology has the potential to greatly improve the fairness and integrity of the game. It is up to governing bodies and individual leagues to continue to develop and refine the use of VAR, in order to maximize its benefits and minimize its drawbacks.
Rankings for 2013 of Currently Active Quarterbacks Drafted #1 Overall
There are 10 quarterbacks who are still active in the NFL today that were taken as the overall # 1 pick in their respective drafts. These are my projected rankings for this year (based on last year + 2013 projection). Please comment with your own lists or whether you agree/disagree with mine. 1. Peyton Manning (Denver Broncos) - The oldest member of this group, he proved many doubters wrong last year by putting up another excellent season. I expect this to carry on into this year unless his body fails him. I expect a 4500+ yards, 35 TD, 10 INT season. Now this is where things get tricky. I had a lot of difficulty choosing from 2 to 7. But here is my opinion. 2. Andrew Luck (Indianapolis Colts) - Sometimes the NFL seems unfair. The Colts first had Peyton Manning and now they have Andrew Luck who showed last year that he was deserving of the #1 overall pick. Last year's offensive coordinator Bruce Arians has left for Arizona and we'll see this year if that has a major impact on Luck's production. However I think Luck's intelligence of the game and physical skill set will allow him to continue last seasons successful campaign. I think he'll improve on last years 54.1% completion percentage, especially with the addition of Ahmad Bradshaw who instantly upgrades the Colts backfield and pass protection. I expect a 4500 yard, 25 TD, 15INT, 5 Rushing TD season this year. 3. Eli Manning (New York Giants) - Probably the most steady QB, he has consistently put up at least 26 TDs and ~4000 yards for the past 4 seasons. I think the loss of Bradshaw may cause the Giants to pass more, but I'm worried about sophomore running back David Wilson's pass protection. The loss of Martellus Bennett doesn't help either, but they signed Brandon Myers who is no slouch himself. With Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks both in contract years (at least for now), I think Manning may be in line for another 4000 yards 30 TD 15 INT campaign this season. 4. Matthew Stafford (Detroit Lions) - Last year was a disaster for Stafford. You can't post a 20/17 TD/INT ratio when you have the game's best wide receiver in Calvin Johnson. To be fair, every team in the NFL was double teaming him almost every play because the Lions didn't have another threat. I expect new acquisition Reggie Bush to play a major role in the Lions aerial attack either from the backfield or maybe even in the slot to put the pressure on the defense. Nate Burleson and Brandon Pettigrew must also step up this year and I expect a more balanced offensive attack with Mikel Leshoure and Bush sharing carries from the backfield. I say Stafford is in line for a 4500 yard, 28 TD, 16 INT season. 5. Carson Palmer (Arizona Cardinals) - Sleeper Pick! People might think I'm crazy, but Palmer quietly had a nice season last year in Oakland and put up a 4000 yards, 22 TD, 14 INT line with a passer rating of 85 with the Raiders receiving core. Now he has Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, Andre Roberts, a much improved Cardinals O-line with the return of blindside protector Levi Brown, and Rashard Mendenhall in the backfield. Bruce Arians will find a way to make this offense work and I expect Palmer to have a turn back the clock year with a 4300 yards, 28 TD, 15 INT year. 6. Sam Bradford (St. Louis Rams) - The loss of Steven Jackson hurts but the additions of Tavon Austin and Jared Cook gives Bradford weapons he's never had before. Reports out of camp indicate they are going to use Austin A LOT. The lack of an experienced backfield gives me the feeling the Rams attack will turn aerial this year, and outside receivers Chris Givens and Brian Quick will show this year why they were drafted by the Rams. I expect a breakout year from Bradford with a line of 4000 yards, 25 TD, 12 INT this season. 7. Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers) - It personally pains me to put Newton down this far in the list. I'm a fan of his freakish physical gifts but the guy has no second wide receiver and word out of camp is that the Panthers will run the read-option less frequently this year which will probably put a dent in Cam's rushing numbers. This may help to decrease the high number of fumbles Newton has been suspect to but he needs to prove to me that he can help the Panthers win. His low number of INTs from last year was nice but his pass percentage also decreased. The Panthers still seem to treat his throws with kid gloves showing Cam may not have the football IQ to handle a full NFL throwing playbook. We'll have to see this year. I expect a 3800 yard, 25 TD, 18 INT year with 5 rushing TDs. 8. Alex Smith (Kansas City Chiefs) - I expect Smith to have a sneaky quiet year with the Chiefs. I don't think he'll be asked to do much (just don't lose the game!) but he is familiar with the West Coast offense that Head Coach Andy Reid uses. I expect a lot of screens and swing passes to Jamaal Charles which may help pad Smith's numbers. If Jon Baldwin finally breaks out this year watch out. I predict a 3300 yard, 18 TD, 7 INT year for Smith who will be asked to not turn over the ball at all costs. 9. Michael Vick (Philadelphia Eagles) - I have no faith in Vick to last a full season. Last year was terrible for Vick who finished with 12 TDs and 10 INTs. While Chip Kelly's new offensive system may revive Vick's career, I will remain skeptical and expect him to get hurt sooner or later opening the door for Nick Foles to take over. I expect a 3000 yard, 14 TD, 10 INT year before he goes down to injury. 10. Jamarcus Russell (N/A) - He is making a comeback! Before all the fat jokes come, he has supposedly shed a lot of weight and who doesn't like a come back story? We'll see if he ever gets another chance in the NFL but I am rooting for him.

An Ever-Growing Dilemma: Traumatic Brain Injury in Football
Image source: pexels Football is a beloved sport for many Americans. It is full of excitement, passion, and competition. Unfortunately, the game has an ever-growing dilemma that is increasingly difficult to ignore - traumatic brain injury (TBI). Recent studies have revealed the long-term health consequences associated with playing football, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). For this reason, players need education on the potential forms of brain injury and at what stage they need a traumatic brain injury lawyer to prove the severity of brain injury. This blog post explores the realities of traumatic brain injury in football from its prevalence among all levels of play to potential solutions for reducing head trauma. We will also discuss why understanding traumatic brain injury laws should be a priority for everyone involved in football whether as a participant or fan. What is traumatic brain injury? Traumatic brain injury is a type of brain injury that occurs when an external force causes damage to the brain. Traumatic brain injury can happen when the head unexpectedly and violently hits an object. It is also prevalent when an object penetrates the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of traumatic brain injury can vary greatly, depending on the severity of the injury. Mild symptoms may include a temporary loss of consciousness or confusion. It can also be severe, such as coma or amnesia. In some cases, traumatic brain injury can lead to long-term problems with cognition, movement, sensation, or emotions. Treatment for traumatic brain injury varies based on the severity of the injury. For milder injuries, rest and over-the-counter pain medications may be all that is needed. However, more severe injuries may require hospitalization and intensive rehabilitation for the individual. There is no definitive answer to preventing traumatic brain injury in football players. Some suggest a change of rules to the sport. For example, banning tackling in practice or banning certain types of hits during games may help reduce the risk of TBI. Others believe that improved equipment design, such as better helmets that better protect the head from impact, may also help reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury. That is why it is important to know some traumatic brain injury laws to find what is truly permitted in the sport and when you might need to consult a personal injury lawyer. Traumatic Brain Injury Laws The case of a traumatic brain injury may form the basis of a legal inquiry. This is applicable in cases where the actions or inactions of one party cause another to sustain a brain injury. Legal inquiries can proceed based on the following theoretical laws, these may include: A case of negligence Medical malpractice Assault Trip and fall All of the aforementioned above may necessitate legal action. For instance, in the case of trip and fall or slip and fall, such cases may occur from uneven floors, clustered walking surfaces, or inadequate lighting. In any case, alongside medical personnel, you need the expertise of a traumatic brain injury lawyer to ascertain the causation of the accident. This ensures all medical records, facts, and evidence of your brain injury are well covered so you can focus on recovery. The Dangers of Traumatic Brain Injury Football as a sport traditionally values toughness, and this often results in collisions between players. As the number of reported concussions in football continues to rise, so does the concern over the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury. TBI can lead to a wide range of problems, including: Memory loss Depression Anxiety Problems with coordination and balance In severe cases, it can even lead to dementia or death. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the severity of a traumatic brain injury. Many of which include the force of the impact and the angle at which the head is hit. This determines whether or not the person loses consciousness. Repeated head trauma is another major factor, as it can lead to cumulative damage. It is impossible to eliminate the risk of traumatic brain injury in football. But some measures can be taken to reduce its occurrence. These include: Better helmets and mouthguards Stricter return-to-play guidelines More comprehensive sideline concussion protocols The long-term effects of traumatic brain injury are also disconcerting. Studies have linked TBI with an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Other research has suggested that TBI may contribute to the development of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is a degenerative brain condition that has been found in many former football players. The potential consequences of suffering a TBI are serious enough that every effort should be made to reduce the risk of injury. This starts with proper training and equipment for all levels of play from youth leagues to the professional ranks. It also includes adopting rule changes aimed at reducing contact between players, for example, banning or limiting certain types of contact. How to Prevent Traumatic Brain Injury? The best way to prevent traumatic brain injury is to avoid head trauma. This can be done by wearing properly fitting protective equipment, such as helmets and mouthguards during all sports and recreational activities. Some steps can be taken to reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury if head trauma does occur. For example, prompt medical attention can help to ensure that any resulting swelling or bleeding is quickly controlled. In addition, rehabilitation and cognitive therapies can help those who have suffered a TBI to regain some or all of their previous functioning. Conclusion Traumatic brain injury in football is a growing dilemma that cannot be ignored. Even with all of the advances in safety protocols, athletes and their families remain at risk as long as they participate in contact sports such as football. It is essential for everyone involved from parents to coaches to medical personnel to take steps to ensure that player safety remains paramount. No one else has to suffer an injury due to negligence or ignorance. We must keep searching for ways to protect our athletes and make sure that this ever-growing dilemma does not go unresolved.
NFL Dads Tackle Hair Styling In This Pantene Campaign.
Every year, major sponsors shell out some serious cash to grab our attention during the Super Bowl, by far the largest single sporting event of the year. They enlist A-List celebrities, bust out the CGI, and have the ability to transform a typical 30-second spot into a minute long movie of epic proportions. However, if there's one thing that these companies can learn from haircare brand Pantene this year, it's that turning on America's feels doesn't have to be that complicated - just bring in the adorableness of some NFL kids! Pantene's 'Dad-Do' Super Bowl campaign features a number of popular NFL fathers taking a stab at styling their daughters' hair with Pantene products. Like you could probably guess, they definitely struggle through it, but with some adorable encouragement from their daughters, the results are very much 'aww'-worthy. (My personal favorite is pictured above: DeAngelo Williams of the Pittsburgh Steelers versus his daughter Rhiya's braids and bows.) Benjamin Watson, tight end for the New Orleans Saints, displayed some pigtail game earning an impressed high five from his daughter, Grace. (He tried to argue that bigger hands make it hard for athletes to style hair, but he didn't do too bad for a first-timer!) The Dallas Cowboys' Jason Witten's adorable daughter Landry was SUPPOSED to get a braided ballerina bun, but let's just say there were some complications on the way. (Hey, if there's anything the Cowboys learned this season, it's that you can't win 'em all!) Click the video above for a look at the finished 30-second Super Bowl ad, or visit Pantene's official YouTube Channel to watch the full styling videos from each athlete. So how do you think they did? Was this concept just as adorable to you as it was to me? Let me know in the comments below and for more trending videos from across the web, follow my YouTube Nation collection!
[Remember the Titans] Brother
[Photo: Julius Campbell (left), Gary Bertier (right)] I recently watched my favorite sports movie of all time, Remember the Titans, for like the 100th time. For those of you that haven't watched the movie, it's based on a true story about a high school football team, in a town that is racially divided. And for the first time, the team becomes racially integrated and an African American coach is newly appointed in the head coaching spot. They all have their differences and troubles in the beginning, but through football, they come together as one. And there is this one scene that gets me every single time I watch this movie. Julius visits Gary who is in the hospital after a horrible car accident. Gary is paralyzed from the waist down and when Julius walks into the room, the nurse stops him, saying only kins are allowed. Gary responds, "Alice, are you blind? Don't you see the family resemblance? That's my brother." In a time when we are so divided by our race, religion, background...I think there is still hope in this world where we can become brothers, we can become sisters, we can become family despite our differences. In the final moments of the movie, these words are said: "People say that it can't work, black and white. Here, we make it work every day. We still have our disagreements, of course, but before we reach for hate, always, always, we remember the Titans." What are some of your favorite sports movies? How did they inspire you?
Love It Or Hate It: Live Sporting Events?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about SELFIE STICKS. It was an EXTREMELY tight vote, but out of the 60 who gave your opinion, 33 of you said that they're actually kind of useful! Soooo... SELFIE STICKS WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about attending live sports games? Spectator sports have been around since the days of Ancient Greece, but the ones we know and love today came into being in the mid 19th century! The number of Americans that attend at least one live sporting event annually is easily in the tens of millions. However, the amount of them that find said sporting event COMPLETELY BORING is still widely unknown. How do YOU feel about spectator sports? Are they tons of fun or brutally boring?

Dr. Peter köppel nukleotide
ÜBER -Dr. Peter Köppel. Dr. Peter Köppel hat einen Ph.D. in Biochemie und Immunologie. Er wurde ausgebildet in Biochemie, mit mit besonderem Interesse an klinischer Immunologie, am Institut für Virologie an der Universität Zürich. Danach arbeitete er als Forscher Osteoarthritis und Osteoporose in einem einem pharmazeutischen Unternehmen in Basel. Als geschäftsführender Direktor von Chemoforma und Pro-Bio in der Schweiz, hat Dr. Köppel seit über 20 Jahren die Forschung und Produktion von speziellen Nukleotid Inhaltsstoffen für die Tier- und Humanernährung Ernährung. Dies hat dazu geführt, dass er als als einer der weltweit führenden Experten für Experten für Nukleotide für Gesundheit und Leistung. Nukleotide sind kleine Moleküle, die lange Zeit wenig oder gar nicht beachtet wurden. Dr. Koeppel und sein Team haben in 30 Jahren Forschung und Praxis bewiesen, wie sinnvoll und notwendig die Ergänzung der Ernährung mit Nukleotiden ist. https://vegananatura.ch/pages/uber-vegana-natura WAS SIND NUKLEOTIDEN? Die DNA ist der Bauplan des Lebens, und die Nukleotide sind die Bausteine der Doppelhelix. Nukleotide bestehen aus einer stickstoffhaltigen Base (normalerweise Adenin, Thymin, Cytosin, Guanin oder Desoxyribose) und einer bis drei Phosphatgruppen. DIE QUELLE DER NUKLEOTIDEN Nukleotide können vom Körper de novo aus einigen Aminosäuren synthetisiert werden, zum Beispiel aus Glutamin, Aspartat, Glycin und Formiat6 Nukleotide, Nukleoside, Nukleinsäuren, Basen und Desoxyribose können auch aus dem. DNA- und RNA-Abbau oder aus Lebensmitteln gewonnen und recycelt werden6 Es hat den Anschein, dass die Darmschleimhaut, die hämatopoetischen Zellen des Knochenmarks und die lymphatischen Gewebe nur eine begrenzte Kapazität für die De-novo-Synthese haben und wahrscheinlich eher auf Bergungswege angewiesen sind, die Nukleotide aus der Nahrung oder aus dem DNA- und RNA-Abbau liefern3,7 . Wenn also die exogene Versorgung mit Nukleotiden gering ist, können diese Gewebe Schwierigkeiten haben, ihren Nukleotidbedarf zu decken.
