It was regular in early days when technology was not so advanced. In the era of high technology, it seems impossible and difficult to understand. Even the best referees vision can not see this subtle difference, but a machine does, it can find out the most hidden failures which the naked eye can not tell. This is why so many big games need to rely on high-tech, which can reduce misjudgement to zero. Based on the topic of robotics to replace humans, should people be concerned if robots will replace vision in the football field.

Due to the misjudgment in the World Cup 2010, football fans who concerned their teams doubted the vision on the football field. offside, diving, Soccer Shoes out of bounds – these happened in each session of World Cup, even use high technology, events still happened after end of the game. This seems insignificant, but in the semi-finals, this misjudgment may cause serious result. So doubt of the authority of vision is not surprising. As a human, misjudgment is inevitable, whether that is inevitable or not is still unknown. Also will we use robots to change the nature of football games in the future is something the fan has thought of for years.

Recently, this problem has been solved by former UEFA president Lennart Johansson who claimed that the American game of football is for human not robot. He said “I believe in the idea that Platini put forward when he said we could have two extra men on the field, Perhaps two referees, but then one behind each goal standing there watching, who could see immediately when the ball is inside the line or not. I face facts that referees are human and humans make mistakes, This is a game for humans and not for robots. This classic conclusion solves the people’s doubt. Belong to what he said, he does not agree for the proposal of using robots on football field. But at the same time, in recognition of the mistakes, he suggest using high technology to monitor competition quality. Also this classic topic explains the humanity of the football game.

In football field, it is human’s war. Eleven football players in the field to make goals using a small ball. The goal which team make more will win the match. Two referees in the sidelines to to monitoring competition. This tradition continues over thirty years accompany with Football Shoes from different brands. Intense competition accompany with skill discussion, atmosphere of tension all increase the ornamental of football game. Also the football shoes which football players worn fully proved that the humanity of football game.

Famous brands produce football shoes for players, not robots. The intense war between Adidas and Nike football shoes focus on famous football stars like C Lo who speaks prison Nike Mercurial Vapor, but his competitor Messi wears Adidas F50 i in the match. Something simular to this happens all the time in the NFL. This will be the highlight for selling football shoes, the gossip news of football players can increase attention to football shoes too. And the popularity may indirectly effect the wonderful game of football. But if robots came onto the football field, the effect may reduce what people find interesting in the game of football. Even referees can be a selling point for brands to voice their new football shoes, if robots become referees, the whole human industry may become expendable.

Article:Whether you already know every professional football team and player like the back of your hand, or you just want to learn enough to look less blank when conversing with friends, family or coworkers, fantasy football can enhance your NFL viewing experience.

As a lottery commercial says, “you have to be in it to win it”. In order to join the fun, you have to pick a “host”, select your preferred NFL players, and join or start a league.

You have a ton of options when considering where to host a fantasy football team. Some of the most commonly played “hosts” include CBS Sportsline.com, SportingNews.com, YahooSports Fantasy Football, ESPN Fantasy Football, NFL Fantasy Football and CDM Fantasy Sports.

Depending on the host and league, you’ll play one of several formats. One requires an upfront payment to enter your league, but doesn’t charge you for players you pick up during the season from a free agent or “waiver” pool. Generally, the higher you pay as your upfront fee, the larger your prize if you win your league for the season.

The second format is free to join, but will cost you for most or all players you claim off waivers or as free agents after the initial draft period ends. Generally, trades with other players are free of charge. Be careful, though! Those trades can be costly in another way to you if you give away too much to get that must-have player.

The most common formats allow you a team made up of one or more quarterbacks, one or more running backs, one or more wide receivers, one or more tight ends and one or more defense/special teams (DST) units. Depending on the league, you may play all of your players at once or pick some players as “starters” and assign others as “reserves”. Only your active players (starters} earn you points for that week. You get points for their league-defined accomplishments each week. What and how much your team will score will vary from league to league.

Now you need players on your team, so it is time for you to “draft” some football players. Using your basic understanding of football, and drawing on your NFL savvy, or some free or paid information sources to review, you’ll rank real NFL players before your league draft. You may also be able to use the players as “pre-ranked” by your host. Every Fantasy Football host has a cheat sheet that you can copy and keep it with you. On the cheat sheet you can make any changes that you desire but be advised those lists are put together with some thought behind them. Don’t overthink yourself in this game.

You’ll also need to decide whether you want the excitement and time commitment of a live draft, or the relative ease and less time offered by an automated draft. If you are a beginner, the automated draft is highly recommended.

During the season, there are “BYE” weeks, during which an NFL team and its players get the week off to recharge. Real players also can be injured, so you lose their productivity. On the other hand, you and your team don’t get any time off, so you’ll probably have to make trades and perform waiver wire moves to ensure that you have a full, strong team playing every week.

Those are the basics. Now, it is up to you to apply your special knowledge, instinct or hunches, and “Win one for the Gipper”. Before your draft, you might want to challenge friends, family members or co-workers who have similar skills to yours to join your league. Some healthy competition can make your fantasy football experience even more enjoyable.

As with any game, keep in mind that it is only a game. You will not become rich or popular dependent upon how well you play. It is mostly purely entertainment. If you keep this in mind and don’t take yourself or the game too seriously, you will have a great time. It is a great game and you should have no trouble finding others with your passion and skill level. Have fun and good luck!
