BBC SPORT | Football | Ferdinand banned for eight months

BBC SPORT | Football | Ferdinand banned for eight months | media and technology | Scoop.it
Rio Ferdinand may miss the whole season and Euro 2004 after getting an eight-month ban for missing a drugs test.
jack langley's insight:

After the media found out about Rio missing a drug test they then followed to publich lots of articles about this. The FA then found out and gave him a 8 month band and a £50 000 fine. I feel that the media had a big contribution to this as if they never found out the neither would the FA or the public.

Luis Suarez Bites Branislav Ivanovic

Liverpool's Luis Suarez has apologised for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic during a Premier League clash. The striker said sorry on his personal Twitter ...
jack langley's insight:

Watching this shows how Luis Suarez bites Ivanovic and then recieves a 10 match man. If it wasnt for techology seeing this due to the cameras i feel this would have simply been ignored as there would have been no proof or evidense. This shows that technology brings out the truth otherwise it would be a simple case of one persons word against another.

jack langley's insight:

After watching this i feel that this is how important technology is to so many sports. This is from 1984 and shows how they used technology straight away, where as there are sports today such as football that still refuse to use technology like this to find out the truth on an idesisive matter.

Ukraine Disallowed Goal Against England - Euro Cup 2012

Ukraine disallowed goal against England - Euro Cup 2012
jack langley's insight:

The 5th and 6th officials are in place on the goal lines in order to play a part and assist the officials to see if the ball goes over the goal line. In this video the ball goes over the line yet the official doesnt see it. This just proves how goal line technology needs to be put in place as this is simply not fair.

The media reaction to the John Terry verdict

The media reaction to the John Terry verdict | media and technology | Scoop.it
Guess how the media have taken the John Terry verdict? Yep, exactly like that.
jack langley's insight:

After reading this article i saw that the media were very clear on their thoughts of this situation. The FA and the Media were confident that he was guilty yet when he went to court the eyes of the law didnt berlieve there was enough evidense to prove him guilty. I feel the media had a big effect on the FA's decision as the media would have had a lot to say if the FA said he was innocent.

Jose Mourinho: 'I'm loved in England'

Speaking after Real Madrid's exit from the Champions League, Jose Mourinho give his strongest hint yet that he is ready to return to England, where he feels ...
jack langley's insight:

In this video I found that Jose berlieves that the reason he is so loved in england is down to the media. He mentions how the media was very fair with him and would only critisize when it was neccesary. I feel that the media has made us love Jose simply because they had good things to say about him a lot and us as the public read this and take it to heart.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers & Professional Athletes

jack langley's insight:

After watching this video it made me think to wether this is cheating or not. These chambers are normally used for injury recovery or illness recoverys. He is using it simply so his muscles can recover quicker so he is completely prepared and ready for his training and next game. I feel like this type of technology is such a benefit to the athletes that can afford it but its unfair to the ones that cant afford it.

Luis Suárez's racism ban: media reaction

Luis Suárez's racism ban: media reaction | media and technology | Scoop.it
There was little sympathy from columnists for the Liverpool striker after his eight-match ban, with the club and manager facing criticism too

I berleive that the media got Suarez this 8 match ban. I strongly berlieve that if the media never knew about the racism that went on, then the ban would have been significantly smaller. I think this because the media wrote so much about it and made it clear to the FA that this needs to be showed to the world that racism is taken serious and so they used Suarez as an example.
