The Latest: A cough could lead to red card in soccer

first_img“However, where it is close enough to be clearly offensive, then the referee can take action.”___Cricket Australia has postponed a Twenty20 series against the West Indies scheduled for October.Australia and the West Indies were set to play games in Queensland state from Oct. 4-9 as warm-ups for the Twenty20 World Cup in October and November. But the International Cricket Council has already pushed the men’s T20 World Cup back by a year — to be held either in Australia or India. Cricket Australia says, “In light of this development, and given the preference to host the warm-up three-match T20 series against the West Indies to coincide with the rescheduled T20 World Cup in Australia, it has been agreed to postpone the matches.” August 4, 2020 The International Football Association Board, the game’s lawmaker, updated its guidelines while the pandemic perseveres.A referee can only red card a player when they are certain the cough is intentional. A yellow card is also optional.The new rule falls under “using offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures.”IFAB said in a statement: “As with all offenses, the referee has to make a judgment about the true nature of the offense.“If it were clearly accidental, then the referee would not take action nor if the ‘cough’ took place with a large distance between the players.

(Photo by Kyusung Gong/Contributing Photographer)ExpandANAHEIM — The Angels’ final victory was a thriller, but one for which Mike Scioscia was taking no credit.On what he knew would be his final day of 19 years managing the Angels, Scioscia allowed three of his coaches to handle everything, while he sat back and watched the team pull out a 5-4 victory over the Oakland A’s on Sunday, with Taylor Ward’s walk-off homer capping a three-run ninth inning.“I had nothing to do with today,” Scioscia said afterward during a press conference in which he made public what had been suspected, that he was stepping down. “Nothing to do with the lineup, nothing to do with the pitching changes. Hence, it’s probably why we won.”Longtime coaches Alfredo Griffin and Dino Ebel managed the first and last thirds of the game, with bench Josh Paul handling the middle. Scioscia, meanwhile, sat casually on a bench in the middle of the dugout, mingling with players, throughout the afternoon.The Angels trailed 4-2 when the ninth inning began. Jefry Marte, who had been responsible for the Angels’ other runs with a first-inning two-run homer, sliced the deficit in half with an RBI double, after a Shohei Ohtani single.Ward then smashed a two-run homer against Chris Hatcher, allowing the Angels to end a disappointing season on a high note.The Angels finished 80-82, the first time in Scioscia’s 19 seasons that they had three straight losing seasons.Matt Shoemaker got the start, his sixth after missing five months with a forearm issue. After allowing two runs – on a Stephen Piscotty homer in the second – Shoemaker finished the season with a 4.94 ERA. He left with the score tied, thanks to Marte’s two-run homer in the first inning.Related Articles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone The A’s took the lead on Franklin Barreto’s two-run homer against Odrisamer Despaigne in the sixth.Both teams pulled several of their more experienced starters throughout the game.Mike Trout hit a flyout in his first at-bat, and then he left the game during the top of the second inning, allowing fans to give him the AL MVP candidate a standing ovation as he jogged to the dugout.Trout finished his season with 39 homers, just missing his second 40-homer season.“I told them, ‘Give me one at-bat and if I hit a homer, I hit a homer,’” Trout said. “I tell you guys, if I try to hit a homer, I get out.

Whoever wins a championship in 2020 will deserve your enduring respect, not your asterisk*

first_imgWhen the Lakers won their first NBA title under Phil Jackson 20 years ago, it was a championship that sort of came from the bargain rack. There had been a labor issue, and that limited the NBA regular season to just 50 games. It was like that as well when the Los Angeles Kings claimed the 2014 Stanley Cup. They had plenty of energy to skate around with the trophy because they’d been required to play only 48 games. When we think of the Raiders’ Super Bowl victory following the 1982 season, we remember that team only had to play nine games before entering the playoffs.OK, I’ll admit it: Every word in that opening paragraph is a lie, even “and” and “the.” I made up all of that. A championship won in the 2020 season might deserve two banners.The first could say: We survived.And the second: We won the damn thing. There have been champions in shortened seasons, mostly because of labor disputes, but almost no one remembers who they are. In fact, it was Joe Gibbs and the Washington Redskins whose first of three Super Bowls followed an abbreviated 1982 schedule. The San Antonio Spurs won in 1999 in a lockout-shortened season, and that also was true of the 2013 Stanley Cup claimed by the Chicago Blackhawks.MORE: What we know about COVID-19 and college football for the upcoming seasonIt seems doubtful anyone will forget the year 2020 for the rest of their lives. When it comes to the championships that will be won during this pandemic, though, it is profoundly inaccurate to suggest each of those titles will come with asterisk attached.Instead, they’ll deserve an exclamation point.We do not know who will claim the NBA championship this autumn, nor the Stanley Cup or World Series. We are certain whichever teams arrive at that point will have survived circumstances that go well beyond the challenges presented by a typical season.Baseball players are only now returning to their various teams, 110 days after spring training was shut down March 12. How long is that in baseball terms? In between the close of the 2019 World Series and the first day pitchers and catchers reported to 2020 spring training, only 103 days passed. They will play 60 games, every one of which will be elevated in terms of consequence because of the truncated schedule.Hockey players will have to deal with expanded Stanley Cup playoffs. To finally achieve a Stanley Cup behind individual superstars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, the Edmonton Oilers will have to advance through five rounds, including a harrowing best-of-five play-in round against the Blackhawks.The NBA still intends to finish its regular season, more or less, with 22 teams playing eight “seeding” games to establish playoff positions and then possibly some “play-in games” if the teams in eighth and ninth place in each conference remain tightly bunched.MORE: Key dates, schedule for the NBA restartAll of this will have to be accomplished with teams returning to training having experienced breaks that are without precedent in each sport. Access to ice or basketball courts was limited for nearly all players and, for a while, nearly was non-existent.Any yet there are those looking to assign less significance to the results that will be achieved this year. Drew Gooden, a 14-year pro who was an All-American at Kansas, emphatically said on the Wizards talk podcast that any NBA title won this year deserves an “asterisk, asterisk, asterisk, asterisk.” He repeated it four times to make his point clear.And then he used slang to underscore it even more: “I think this is the most jenkiest hoops season ever.” According to the Urban Dictionary, “jenky” is a term meaning “of low quality.”For the players who’ve waited months to learn if they even will play again, who confronted the decision of whether to enter the competition — either in a bubble or a hub city or simply in an empty ballpark — and accepted at least some risk of contracting the coronavirus by agreeing to play, it’s hard to imagine many feeling what they’re attempting to achieve is somehow less grand.MORE: Everything to know about the return of MLB“I think whoever wins should have an asterisk next to it. But only for being one of the toughest championships ever won,” Houston Rockets guard Austin Rivers told Turner Sports’ Taylor Rooks. “You’re asking guys to take 3-4 months off, then come back and find chemistry, etc., then playing during a pandemic while guys are fighting for Black Lives Matter. Crazy times, and a lot of worry.“And during these times, guys are leaving their families and going to live in a locked-down bubble. So for all these reasons and more, I think it will be one of the tougher championships ever won.”last_img read more
