The most innovative VAR arrives in Denmark: only 25 “of performance

first_imgThe VAR continues to unleash criticism and flattery since its implementation widespread in the world of football. Lately until Ceferin, president of UEFA, has publicly expressed his disappointment at the proceedings and the protocol of video arbitration in different countries. His main criticism lies in the gameplay and requires that there be a minimum of 15 centimeters of margin when analyzing a play. Well, your requests have been answered in Denmark, with the implementation of an innovative VAR with nuances to its pleas. “He must intervene much less than he does in the Premier League. On average, the VAR will only enter the field screen once every three games and will last 25 seconds per intervention“said Michael Johansen, the chairman of the DBU arbitrators committee in statements to the Danish media Politiken. In this way, the reality, or at least his initial intention, is clear: if in 25 seconds the video arbitration room has not been able to see whether or not there is an offside play, it will not be considered a manifest failure and the original decision of the collegiate will be respected.The Danish Super League will incorporate the VAR next season. It will be late, but the waiting time has facilitated an analysis of its operation in other countries and an introduction taking into account its pros and cons. “When a VAR judge spends two minutes playing with television images to find a possible three-millimeter offside it becomes ridiculous. Ridiculous because there are too many uncertainties. We will train the Danish video judges to only intervene in a clear and manifest error. We do not believe that the big toe in advance is“Michael Johansen closed.last_img read more

The area task force – one of three created so far in the state – also includes firefighters from the cities of Montebello, Downey, Compton and Vernon. The two other regional task forces are in the Long Beach area and the San Francisco area. Task force firefighters receive ongoing training in various areas, including trenching, hazardous materials and medical response, Goodwin said. “Although we don’t wish for an incident to take place, it’s gratifying to know that we have a chance to go help,” he said. araceli.esparza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The local task forces have much shorter response requirements, he added. “The regional task force has 45 minutes to get on the road,” he said, adding that 29 local task force firefighters and slew of specialized equipment could be dispatched almost immediately. “If an incident should come down, we have a plan where two cities will combine their resources to put their task force together and `let’s go,”‘ Welland said. Santa Fe Springs fire officials had to apply to be part of the strike team, undergoing an application and review process by state officials.
