NFL ANNOUNCES NEW OFFICIATING LEADERSHIP TEAM

ALBERTO RIVERON NAMED SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT OF OFFICIATING

RUSSELL YURK NAMED VICE PRESIDENT OF INSTANT REPLAY & ADMINISTRATION &

WAYNE MACKIE NAMED VICE PRESIDENT OF OFFICIATING EVALUATION & DEVELOPMENT

ALBERTO RIVERON, a member of the NFL’s Officiating Department since 2013 and a nine-year veteran NFL game official has been named NFL senior vice president of officiating.

Riveron will oversee all aspects of the league’s officiating department – including the implementation of the centralized replay model approved by clubs at the annual meeting in March – as well as administration, evaluation and development.

A native of Cuba, Riveron moved to Miami at age five with his family and developed a passion for the game.  He began as an official in local youth leagues in 1977, made his collegiate officiating debut in 1990 before joining the NFL officiating ranks in 2004.  In 2008, Riveron was promoted to referee, earning the distinction as the NFL’s first Hispanic referee.  Riveron came off the field following the 2012 season to join the league office as senior director of officiating.

“Al has done a terrific job as a key member of our officiating staff for the past four seasons,” said NFL Commissioner ROGER GOODELL.  “Prior to that, Al was an outstanding on-field official who earned the respect of his fellow officials, as well as coaches and players alike.  To have Al leading our officiating department, and then to add talented, knowledgeable instant replay and officiating experts like Russell and Wayne, is a tremendous positive for us as we look forward to the 2017 season.”

Reporting to Riveron, who will report to NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations TROY VINCENT, will be two new hires designed to aid in the department’s long-standing goal of excellence in officiating performance – RUSSELL YURK and WAYNE MACKIE.

Yurk joins the staff as Vice President of Instant Replay and Administration.  In this role, Yurk will direct the league’s instant replay operations in the Art McNally GameDay Central room and oversee all instant replay-related personnel.  Yurk will also be responsible for officiating administration, including supervising operational aspects of scheduling and logistics as well as the training and development of instant replay personnel.

Yurk spent the past seven seasons as an NFL instant replay official after working as an on-field official for 10 seasons at the high school and college level. An instant replay expert, Yurk assisted in authoring the replay section of the NFL Referee’s Manual for the past two years.

Mackie, a 10-year veteran NFL game official, has been named Vice President of Officiating Evaluation and Development, responsible for the officiating evaluation and development program, managing the on-field officials weekly crew evaluation process, as well the staff of officiating supervisors and trainers, and the management of the Officiating Development Program.

A highly-respected on-field game official for the past two decades at the collegiate and professional level, Mackie entered the NFL in 2007 as a head linesman and quickly established himself as one of the league’s top officials at his position.  Mackie has officiated in eight NFL playoff games, including serving as head linesman at Super Bowl 50 and for two conference championship games during his 10-year NFL career.

Mackie began his collegiate officiating career in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in 1996 and also officiated in the Atlantic 10 and Big East through his final collegiate season in 2006 prior to joining the NFL.

Riveron, Yurk and Mackie will all work in GameDay Central throughout the season and have the final say on instant replay decisions, in consultation with the referee as part of the new replay rules for the 2017 season.

“Al, Russell and Wayne are a team dedicated to delivering the highest quality of officiating and game administration in professional sports,” Vincent said.  “The structure of their responsibilities will provide us with a sustainable model for greater efficiency, improved performance from our officials, and operational excellence in collaboration, development and training of our officiating team.”

FIFA Congress confirms next steps of the bidding process for the 2026 FIFA World Cup

May 11, 2017

FIFA Congress confirms next steps of the bidding process for the 2026 FIFA World Cup

FIFA’s 211 member associations assembled today in Manama, Bahrain for the 67th FIFA Congress. The organisation’s supreme body made a few important decisions to validate reports on FIFA’s activities in 2016 and, more importantly, to agree on key steps for the future of the organisation.

This included the ratification of the next stages of the bidding process to select the host(s) of the 2026 FIFA World Cup™. Following the approval of the bidding requirements by the FIFA Council on 9 May, the FIFA Congress agreed, with 93% of the valid votes, on a three-month period – until 11 August 2017 – for member associations from CAF, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL and the OFC to express their interest in hosting the tournament. The decision on whether to select any of the bidders as the host(s) of the 2026 FIFA World Cup will be taken by the 68th FIFA Congress, which will convene in Moscow on 13 June next year, on the eve of the opening match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™.

The approved motion reads as follows:

“Based on specific regulations to be issued by the Council, the FIFA general secretariat shall establish a bidding procedure inviting initially the member associations of CONCACAF, CAF, CONMEBOL and the OFC to express their interest by 11 August 2017 to submit to FIFA a bid to host the final competition of the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The 68th FIFA Congress will decide on the selection of the candidate host associations.

Should the 68th FIFA Congress not select any candidate host associations, the FIFA general secretariat will invite further member associations – including the member associations of AFC and UEFA and excluding those member associations that submitted a bid initially – to submit a bid to host the final competition of the 2026 FIFA World Cup.”

Other key decisions:

  • Election of the members of the Audit and Compliance Committee, the Governance Committee and the judicial bodies. The members have been elected for a term of office of four years, effective immediately.
  • Approval of the detailed budget for 2018, with a total investment of USD 2.899 billion – 91% of which is allocated to football activities, chief among which is the organisation of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
  • The 67th FIFA Congress followed the proposal of the FIFA Council with regard to the motion submitted by the Palestinian Football Association – “a request for official recognition of the Palestinian Football Association’s entitlements to all of its rights as described in the FIFA Statutes”. The FIFA Congress approved, with 73% of valid votes, the following proposal: “Considering that the matter is not a Congress competence but a Council competence, that a consolidated report of the monitoring committee is not yet ready, and that more time is needed to evaluate the situation and to take a decision, the Council proposes to the Congress not to vote on the proposal of the Palestinian Football Association and to give time to the Council to take a decision before the end of March 2018.” Nevertheless, the Council has committed to deciding on the matter already at its next meeting, on 27 October 2017.

¡A dar la vuelta en casa!

Rayados de Monterrey tuvo un resultado en contra el juego de ida de los cuartos de final de la Liguilla del Clausura 2017

Rayados de Monterrey tuvo un resultado en contra en el juego de ida de los cuartos de final de la Liguilla del Clausura 2017 y ahora todo se definirá en el Estadio BBVA Bancomer el próximo sábado 13 de mayo.

 

En el partido ante Tigres en la edición 111 del Clásico Regiomontano, el marcador final fue 4-1 en favor de los locales, aunque ahora Rayados tratará de dar la vuelta en casa con el apoyo de la Mejor Afición de México.

 

El partido fue complicado para los Rayados y aunque trataron de imponer su estilo de juego no pudieron lograrlo y se vieron en contra en el marcador al minuto 19 con gol de André-pierre Gignac.

 

Rayados trató de igualar el marcador, pero justo antes de acabar el primer tiempo, Jesús Dueña puso el 2-0.

 

El Equipo de Antonio Mohamed siguió intentando, luchó y trató de hacer daño al rival, pero al dejar espacios, el equipo rival anotó el 3-0 por medio de Gignac al 68.

 

Rayados nunca bajó los brazos y pese a la expulsión de Aldo de Nigris, José Basanta logró el gol al minuto 91, aunque lastimosamente un minuto después Dueñas puso el definitivo.

 

Ahora Rayados tendrá que dejar todo en la cancha y con el respaldo de la Gran Afición Rayada buscará hacer historia y avanzar a las semifinales del Clausura 2017.
