Simba e operadoras caminham para acordo ainda no dia de hoje

Por mais que exista esta vontade, porque é um assunto que já deu um pouco, não tem como não destacar a confusão que envolve SBT, Record e Rede TV!, de um lado representadas pela Simba e, de outro, as operadoras de TV paga.

Foi marcada para a tarde desta terça-feira uma primeira reunião das duas partes. A SKY, entre as empresas de assinatura, é a única que se mostra disposta a nem conversar. É difícil, no entanto, acreditar num acordo definitivo tão imediato, até porque tudo nos leva a acreditar que não se trata de uma negociação tranquila.

São muitos os interesses em jogo. Mas assim como a Vivo desde o primeiro momento se mostrou disposta a conversar, é provável que NET, Oi e Claro também demonstrem a mesma disposição, proporcionando rápida reativação dos serviços.

O telespectador ou assinante, que não tem nada com isso, este sim, poderá ter todos os seus direitos resgatados, ficando o restante do imbróglio para ser discutido depois, em outras tantas rodadas de conciliação.

Briga idiota

Para o bem de todos e felicidade geral dos envolvidos, é importante se chegar a um entendimento, mesmo que parcialmente, e que todos os serviços se restabeleçam o mais rápido possível.  Por enquanto, com cancelamentos de assinaturas, quebra de contratos de propaganda, baixa audiência e fuga no número de ligados, o prejuízo é dos mais violentos.

Por outro lado

A TV como um todo, aberta e fechada, já de algum tempo passou a ser ameaçada por outros serviços e a situação de agora só a leva perder mais terreno. O que se vê, até com certa irresponsabilidade, é um jogo contra o próprio patrimônio .

Hyundai A-League 2016/2017-Outcome of independent MRP – Round 25

Alan Baro was shown a straight red in Victory's loss to Wellington.

Alan Baro was shown a straight red in Victory’s loss to Wellington.

The independent Match Review Panel (MRP) – consisting of Simon Micallef (Chair), Adam D’Apuzzo, and Alan Contini – convened today to consider an incident involving Alan Baro (Baro) of Melbourne Victory which arose in or around the 71st minute of Melbourne Victory’s Hyundai A-League Round 25 match against Wellington Phoenix on Sunday, 2 April 2017.

The MRP has the authority to consider the incident as Baro was expelled from the match by the Referee.

Alan Baro.

The MRP determined that Baro committed the offence of “Denying the opposing team an obvious goal-scoring opportunity”.

The MRP has proposed a sanction of one match (the Mandatory Match Suspension), being the Minimum Sanction for the offence.

Trent Sainsbury a sub in Serie A

Caltex Socceroos defender Trent Sainsbury was an unused substitute in Inter Milan's 2-1 Serie A home loss to Sampdoria on Tuesday morning (AEST).

Caltex Socceroos defender Trent Sainsbury was an unused substitute in Inter Milan’s 2-1 Serie A home loss to Sampdoria on Tuesday morning (AEST).

Caltex Socceroos defender Trent Sainsbury has returned to Italy following his 90-minute performance in Australia’s 2-0 win over UAE in Sydney last week.

The talented Perth-born defender was an unused substitute in Inter Milan’s 2-1 Serie A home loss to Sampdoria.

The Caltex Socceroo is still awaiting his Inter debut after his on-loan switch earlier this year from the Chinese Super League.

 

The loss sees the Italian giants remain sixth on the table with eight matches remaining in the 2016/17 season.

Sainsbury’s performance against the UAE last week earned praise from his national team boss.

“With guys like Trent, I rate him very highly. And we’ve got to treat him like he’s someone precious for us,” said Ange Postecoglou.

“Trent was outstanding. He organised everything really well and he’s such a composed player.”

Your guide to Hyundai A-League’s incredible finish

The fight for finals spots in the Hyundai A-League is going down to the wire.

The fight for finals spots in the Hyundai A-League is going down to the wire.

The fight for finals spots is going down to the wire. With just two rounds left in the 2016/17 Hyundai A-League season, seven teams remain in contention for the top six.

Crucially, the eventual finishing order – and all-important home advantage – is far from confirmed.

Sydney FC have won the Premier’s Plate.

But below the Sky Blues, who are flying into the Finals Series and who are faltering near the finish line?

Melbourne Victory

Currently: Second

Points: 45

Goal difference: +17

Highest possible finish: Second

Lowest possible finish: Third

Remaining games: Western Sydney Wanderers (A), Central Coast Mariners (H)

Victory's Marco Rojas, Fahid Ben Khalfallah and James Troisi celebrate a goal against Glory on Saturday night.

While they can theoretically be caught by Brisbane, it’s hard to see Victory not securing the solitary point they need in their last two matches to clinch second place.

That’ll give them the first week off in the Finals Series.

Victory’s star quality is undoubted, making them Sydney FC’s most likely challengers.

But with the business end of the season fast approaching, Kevin Muscat will demand more from his men after three losses in their last four games and a below-par performance against Wellington last time out.

Brisbane Roar

Currently: Third

Points: 39

Goal difference: +7

Highest possible finish: Second

Lowest possible finish: Sixth

Remaining games: Perth Glory (A), Wellington Phoenix (H)

After a curiously quiet February during which they collected just three of a possible 12 points, Brisbane have come right with a bang, winning three of their last four.

They’ve knocked in ten goals in the process, seven of them to red-hot striker Jamie Maclaren.

With Maclaren in such sizzling form, Roar look odds on for a top four finish and will fancy themselves to carry their recent momentum into the Finals Series.

Melbourne City

Currently: Fourth

Points: 36

Goal difference: +5

Highest possible finish: Third

Lowest possible finish: Sixth

Remaining games: Adelaide United (H), Perth Glory (A)

City have lost their last two games and are in danger of falling out of the top four for the first time this season at the worst possible juncture.

City forward Nick Fitzgerald celebrates scoring against the Jets on Saturday night.

While their place in the top six is secure, it’s impossible to predict where in the final pecking-order City will finish up.

Michael Valkanis will be desperate for his side to regain some impetus against his former club Adelaide United at AAMI Park on Friday night before a crucial trip to Perth to wrap the regular season.

Western Sydney Wanderers

Currently: Fifth

Points: 34

Goal difference: 0

Highest possible finish: Third

Lowest possible finish: Seventh

Remaining games: Melbourne Victory (H), Adelaide United (A)

Western Sydney are on the charge, winning their last three matches and scoring three times in each of them.

Tony Popovic has his side humming and with games against faltering Victory and out-of-contention Adelaide to come, a place in the top four is on the Wanderers’ radar.

That’s something which looked highly unlikely two months ago.

They’ll also welcome back red-hot leading scoring Brendon Santalab for the final charge towards the Finals Series.

Don’t discount Western Sydney from having a say in the destination of the season’s most significant silverware.

Perth Glory

Currently: Sixth

Points: 33

Goal difference: -3

Highest possible finish: Third

Lowest possible finish: Seventh

Remaining games: Brisbane Roar (H), Melbourne City (H)

After looking like a lock for the top six at the end of February, Kenny Lowe’s men have been hit by an extremely untimely loss of form.

Without a win in their last four games and having shipped 11 goals in that time, Glory have the speed-wobbles.

Perth Glory players celebrate Diego Castro's superlative equaliser against the Phoenix on Saturday.

They are now the side in most danger of being pipped at the post, especially with a worrying injury ward.

Tough clashes with Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City will round out their season, but in Perth’s favour, both are at nib Stadium.

A win in either will secure their finals spot.

Wellington Phoenix

Currently: Seventh

Points: 29

Goal difference: -4

Highest possible finish: Fifth

Lowest possible finish: Seventh

Remaining games: Sydney FC (H), Brisbane Roar (A)

After losing a quintessential six-pointer to Western Sydney in mid-March, every one of the last four games became a must-win for Wellington if they were to stay alive in the fight for the Finals.

They’ve achieved that in impressive fashion so far, dispatching the Jets 5-0 before a head-turning 3-0 win at Melbourne Victory on Sunday.

When Phoenix kick-off against Sydney FC in Wellington on Saturday evening, the Finals Series door will still be ajar.

That gives Wellington every motivation to continue their late-season renaissance against the Sky Blue juggernaut and Premiers Plate winners.

Hyundai A-League first to use Video Assistant Referees

Shaun Evans

The Hyundai A-League will become the first top-level domestic football league in the world to implement the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system when Melbourne City FC host Adelaide United at AAMI Park this Friday evening to start Round 26.

After more than a year of preparation, testing and training of VARs and operators, Football Federation Australia (FFA) believes the VAR system is ready to be rolled out in professional football.

FFA CEO David Gallop said the historic use of VAR technology in the Hyundai A-League was a significant milestone for the game in Australia and beyond.

“Australia is well known as a world leader in sport and this week we will become a world leader in football.

“Since the use of video technology was first mooted, FFA has been at the vanguard for the use of the system and we took on an audacious plan to ensure that we could produce a compliant system for the use in the Hyundai A-League as soon as possible.

“This weekend is the culmination of an enormous amount of hard work to ensure that the VAR system is ready to be used for live, competitive football matches. I want to thank our referees, the Hyundai A-League clubs and the players for their positive support for this measure.

“This event would not be possible without the backing of our broadcast partner FOXSPORTS and also our VAR technology partner, Hawk-Eye, who will both be providing the infrastructure for this innovative new system to be fully operational, and for that we are very grateful,” concluded Gallop.

The Head of Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League, Greg O’Rourke, is confident that the VAR system will provide great value to the referees, players, coaches and fans alike.

“Since the dawn of Association Football, there have been controversial decisions and that will continue.

The Hyundai A-League will become the first top-level domestic football league in the world to implement the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system this weekend.

“With the advent of broadcast technologies, referees have been the only individuals that have not been able to benefit from the use of video replay technology. That changes this week.

“The implementation of the VAR system will help eliminate incorrect key match-changing decisions.

“Testing has been successfully completed at all necessary Hyundai A-League venues to ensure that the VAR will be implemented according to the official experiment protocol.

“Credit must go to our FFA Director of Referees, Ben Wilson, who has led the project team to implement the use of VARs. His dedication and attention to details is a major reason that the Hyundai A-League is the first professional competition in the world to use VARs league-wide,” concluded O’Rourke.

“We are very pleased with the very professional preparatory work done in Australia and are sure that with the meticulous training and education conducted by FFA and the A-League VARs will work well in the upcoming matches” said Lukas Brud, Secretary of the International Football Association Board.

The use of VAR system may be called on by the referee to provide assistance on four (4) categories of match-changing decisions/incidents:

• Goal / no goal decisions

• Penalty / no penalty decisions

• Direct red cards (not 2nd yellow cards)

• Mistaken identity

Hyundai A-League referee Jarred Gillett.

In all these situations, the VAR is only used after the referee has made a decision (including allowing play to continue), or if a serious incident is ‘missed’ i.e. not seen by the match officials.

The VAR system will be governed by the protocol agreed to by The IFAB (click here for details)

The inaugural panel of nine (9) VARs include current and former FIFA and Hyundai A-League Referees; Peter Green, Chris Beath, Jarred Gillett, Strebre Delovski, Kris Griffiths-Jones, Shaun Evans, Stephen Lucas, Alan Milliner and Craig Zetter.
