LONDON -- Having successfully persuaded FIFA to introduce goal-line technology, the English Football Association now wants cameras to be allowed to settle other contentious situations in games. New FA chairman Greg Dyke says it is a "no-brainer" that referees should be permitted to defer to video replays for penalty and offside decisions. While England is just one of the 209 FIFA members, its opinions on rule-changes carry more weight as a member of the sports closed rule-making panel. The International Football Association Board only approved goal-line technology after FIFA President Sepp Blatter reversed his long-standing opposition to it following the 2010 World Cup. Hawk-Eyes camera-based system makes its European debut on Sunday at Wembley Stadium for the Community Shield between Premier League champion Manchester United and FA Cup winner Wigan. The system, which uses 14 cameras, sends a signal inside a second to the referees watch and ear-piece indicating that the ball has crossed the line. "Sunday is an important day, with the coming of goal-line technology," Dyke said. "I just believe when we look back in 25 years well say, That was only the beginning. "I think its inevitable there will be more use of video technology to help referees." Dyke just doesnt want the flow of matches affected. "You always have to weigh off -- how much does it slow the game, how much does it spoil the game and the rest of it?" Dyke said. "But over time, its bound to happen. Refereeing is getting harder and harder... and anything that helps the referee should be looked at." Particularly when it comes to awarding penalties and spotting dives. "I think (for) penalty kicks is a no-brainer at some stage," Dyke said. The International Football Association Board is made up of the four British associations and four FIFA delegates. It would require at least six members to approve the roll-out high-tech aids for referees beyond goal-line decisions. "I dont think it will come in the next two to three years, but it will come over time," Dyke said. Sony-owned Hawk-Eye is already conducting a pilot project in the Netherlands to see if its cameras could help a video official send almost instant messages to the referee for offside decisions and fouls. "This is a blind trial, nothing to do with the actual match, and this actually has FIFA blessing to gather information," Hawk-Eye inventor Paul Hawkins said Thursday as his goal-line system was demonstrated at Arsenal before it is deployed in Premier League matches from next weekend. The Spanish league, which is yet to introduce goal-line technology, is also keen on using cameras to rule on disputed off-side decisions. chinajerseysnfl

The Kansas City Royals left-hander matched a career high with nine strikeouts and scattered five hits over seven-plus shutout innings in a 9-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. His previous outing in Chicago didnt go well at all. Duffy injured his elbow in the first inning on May 13, 2012. Soon after he had Tommy John surgery and missed about a year. "Ive been waiting to come back here for a long time," Duffy said. "Its just nice to come out and do my job in this city and in this setting." The victory was the sixth straight for the Royals while the White Sox dropped their ninth in 10 games against Kansas City. Royals manager Ned Yost said there was a lot to like about Duffys complete effort. "For four innings he was really efficient, he really kept his pitch count down," Yost said. "He had everything working: his fastball, his breaking ball, had a good changeup and had a really, really good defence behind him." Mike Moustakas homered among his three hits as the Royals won their second straight in this weekend series. The Royals scored five times in the fourth -- four with none out -- to chase Chicago starter Hector Noesi (2-5). Noesi allowed five runs -- two earned -- and eight hits while walking one and striking out four. "To be able to put five runs on the board was big," Yost said. "Weve and a couple of big innings the last week or 10 days. Early in the year we get something going we get one or two out of it. Now that were swinging the bats better were getting four or five." Duffy last struck out nine on June 19, 2011, at St. Louis. Hes now 2-0 against Chicago. Duffy departed in the eighth inning after a leadoff single by Adam Eaton. White Sox designated hitter Paul Konerko spoiled the shutout with a homer off Michael Mariot to open the ninth. Two runs scored in the five-run fourth when third baseman Leury Garcia bobbled Lorenzo Cains grounder for an error.dddddddddddd Moustakas then singled to shallow centre for another run. Alcides Escobars base hit extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games and loaded the bases for the second time in the inning. The Royals fourth run came on Nori Aokis double-play grounder. Omar Infante lined a two-out single to left, driving in Moustakas for a 5-0 lead. Noesi was chased in favour of right-hander reliever Javy Guerra with two outs in the fourth. "Hector, hes been good for us and hes always given us a chance, but we have to help him out on occasion," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "If were not helping him on defence, its going to make a difference. Thats a recipe to lose a game in a hurry." Moustakas homer in the eighth inning was his sixth of the season. He finished with two RBIs and two runs scored. Eric Hosmer had an RBI double to left to start a three-run ninth. Butlers one-out homer to right made it 9-0. Despite giving up an eighth inning single to Eaton, Duffys shutout was preserved after Eaton was thrown out at home on a throw by Aoki in a play overturned following a review. NOTES: Escobar was in Saturdays lineup despite having cramps and leaving Fridays game after extending his hitting streak to a career-high 11 games with a ninth inning double. .

After going 63-99 in 2013, Ventura is pleased to have his team in contention this year, but he wont project beyond Saturday. "Were not going to look that far down the road," he said.
