Shane Third's insight:

Teams will have different technology to other clubs. This is because in different countries are developing their technology at different rates. For German teams such as Bayern Munich and Dortmund have technology that has help them reap pain on the ‘best clubs’ teams in the world like Barcelona and Real Madrid. Does this give them an unfair advantage? Maybe but that’s not going to matter when it comes to winning trophies. In my opinion they should be allowed to use it if it’s legal and they have access to it. So cannot take anything away from the teams that have worked hard in using the technology to develop their football ability. That is what the technology has been made for, to develop the younger player coming through and the older players you already have.

Shane Third's insight:

Technology is advancing on many levels, but only in certain sports they are willing to put the money in to. This article shows that disabled people are treated differently to those who are not. This shows that their sports will suffer unless they are willing to put money in to helping them develop their own sporting technology. In my personal disability sports are in need for the technology more they other sports because they need to technology to be able to participant in these sports. It’s the technology the helps create the equipment they use to break their world records. So there for even though technology is advancing at a frightening rate, it’s not where it matters most.

Benayoun suffers anti-Semitic abuse on Twitter
ITV News
Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun has revealed he was the victim of anti-Semitic abuse via Twitter.
Shane Third's insight:

Social networks such as Twitter and Facebook allow people to follow their favourite sports Celebrates and message them hoping for a reply in return. However there are people who will follow them just to give them abuse through the internet. In the case people are able to say racial comments to overseas players. It’s not only racial comments; it can be threats or anti-Semitic abuse which they players do not deserve. This is why clubs advise their players/athletes to stay on all social networks because it does not do themselves or the club justice.

PUNDITS beware: your moral superiority over football match officials, the product of technology and hindsight, is narrowing.
Shane Third's insight:

Technology needs to be brought in to the footballing world. The save incidents like in the world cup England Vs Germany. Frank Lampard scoring a wonder goal to make it 2-2 but it was disallowed because it ‘did not cross the line’. This goal could have been a game changing moment which could have lifted them to go on and win the game. However because of this moment their heads dropped and they lost the game 4-1. This is why technology should be brought in to football. It will help the match officials make key game changing decisions, but it will also help to clarify whether it’s a goal or not. It has been in other sports like Cricket, Rugby, Tennis and swimming all use technology to help chose the winners and loser of the events. They use things like Hawkeye and action replay. Things like this are being tried out to see whether it will be able to be used in the games. If they are putting it in they have to put it to real use and let it change the game.

Good work Shane, nice blog, well done.
Jordan Bright's curator insight, May 15, 2013 7:28 AM

There are some aspects of technology which needs to be bought in football which is goal line technology. This needs to be bought into the sport as there are many incidents every season where the game can change from someone having an attempt at goal and the ball appears to be over the line, whereas the keeper doesn’t give the goal. These incidents can change game but most importantly change a team’s season whether they get promoted, relegated or win a cup. An incident like in the 2010 FIFA world cup when Frank Lampard had an attempt at goal from 30 yards out and it appeared that the ball had crossed the line but the referee waved away the decision and the video replay clearly indicated that the ball had crossed the Germany keepers goal line. Moreover, as this goal wasn’t given England then went on to lose the match 4-1 and were then knocked out of the World Cup; it previously was 1-1 and if the goal was given then England would have been in the lead at 2-1. This is why the technology should be bought into football! It will help the match officials make key changing decisions as well as it will help clarify whether it is a goal or not. In other sports like Tennis, Rugby and Cricket they all use some sort of technology to help define the winners and the losers of the events. These sports use types of technology which is similar to goal line technology which is called Hawkeye and Action replays. In addition, things like this are being tried out at friendly and exhibition matches to see whether or not it is accessible to use during the matches. Finally, if they are putting it in they have to make sure that they put it to real use as well as let it change the game.

Shane Third's insight:

Social Networks are used for players to talk to fans and the other way around. However players can use the network to give their thoughts and feelings on games or players. However they are able to use the networks to tease other players or fans. It is used for everything that involves expressing your feeling or a particular matter.

Mbia denies using Twitter to engineer move from QPR
BBC Sport
Cameroon international Stephane Mbia has denied using Twitter to try to engineer a move from relegated English Premier League club QPR.
Shane Third's insight:

Twitter can make other Newspaper companies obtain their headlines for the following days. Like in this instance they have started the allegations that players are using the social network to try and force moves away from their current clubs. This can then cause tension when they have to return the club the following back. The thing is with using Twitter or Facebook is they are able to see what you have written and edit it therefore cause an uneasy mood within the club’s boardroom or dressing rooms. All players have to be careful with the way they speak on social networks because not only can it get them in the newspapers for the wrong reasons, they can also land themselves in trouble and receiving punishment form the FA and or their clubs.

GPS system makes Jack Wilshere reconsider England Under-21 stance

GPS system makes Jack Wilshere reconsider England Under-21 stance | Task 3 Technology and Media | Scoop.it
Arsenal have used scientific data to show Jack Wilshere his increased tiredness levels, convincing him that playing for England Under-21s this summer would be a bad idea
Shane Third's insight:

The use of technology can be great to help player develop and stay healthily. For example this article discusses the fitness of Jack Wilshere due to the fact he’s been playing too much football and his recovery period isn’t long enough between games. This is important because it can potentially save his career. For example because they are able to motor his fitness levels they will tell when he needs to recover. This there for will lower the risk of obtaining serious injuries. Therefore being able to monitor a player’s development through technology is great for the clubs and players for the reasons mentioned above. Also with this GPS technology they are able to tell whether they need to up the players training sessions or lower them.

I think this would be a great ideo not just for Wiltshere this will then give everyone an insight of who does the most on the pitch! and who trys hard enough and who doesnt

maybe managers could also set them targets to cover so much per game? it could also give managers an idea of when to substitute players because you will notice when the start to cover less ground. there fore this could end up being great for the footballing industry

Shane Third's insight:

Twitter will manly affect the players more than it will affect the game. Because players have to act as good role models to the fans they have to be careful with what they are able to do or say. With this incident, players are not able to speak their mind to the public without consequences occurring. Another incident that always happens with Twitter is Joey Barton slating other clubs, managers and players. His punishment is getting find and are going to the extent of trying to ban him from the social network.
