Man City Banned from Champions League for Financial Breaches

I too am happy with the punishment. Lately teams have been punished by being excluded from the player transfer market. This allows players who want to play for a team playing in UEFA to transfer.

Man City Banned from Champions League for Financial Breaches

I am guessing these rulings are coming the Financial Fair Play rules. These rules came into places after some historic clubs went bankrupt trying to make or stay in top flight football. I have never looked into the details, but like salary caps in the US, when and how a team reports revenue and expenses can effect the players they sign.

SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

I will probably do what I do for certain soccer games, find the Spanish language channel of the game. I understand very little Spanish as I live in a Northern state. As I listen, I can catch numbers, names, and a few keys works like "castigo", but the rest is foreign to me.
My other strategy, usually when the game is on ESPN, is find the SkyCam feed. There are no replays, no sideline shots, and sometimes you do not know who is injured. This means on occasion I have to flip back to the regular broadcast but usually flip right back when I understand what just happened. :)

NoMich have you seen Ford vs Ferrari about Le Mans 1966, I think.

There is some creative license in the movie but it may explain things.

UEFA Super Cup is the winner of last seasons UEFA Champions League (Liverpool) and UEFA Europa Cup (Chelsea)

Other countries also usually have Super Cups at the beginning of the season between the winner of the league (top of the table at end of the season) and the cup winner (knockout style competition)

Robot umps now!

3) How long will it take for teams to be able to hack this system to benefit them during games? I mean, come on, this is a human-created system, so humans should be able to make changes to it. It's going to happen, you know it.

This is from memory so may be incorrect.

Because the top and the bottom of each batter's strike zone is different, information about the batter must be input into the system. While probably fractions of an inch, I could see players trying to gain the system by slouching, or wearing tall shoes, or something when getting measured.

There also has to be a person who selects the person at bat. Always a chance when a pinch hitter comes in that the wrong batter gets selected.
