Pro-choice demonstrators take part in a march in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Sept. 7. REUTERS/JOHN SIBLEY Abortion rights were long opposed inNorthern Ireland by religious conservatives in both the Protestant communitythat supports continued British rule and the Catholic community that favorsunion with the traditionally Catholic Irish Republic.(Reuters) BELFAST – Campaigners, who fought fordecades to end Northern Ireland’s same sex-marriage ban and restrictions onabortion, have prepared for a change to the laws on both. Advocacy groups planned a number ofevents on Monday to usher in the changes. Northern Ireland is the only part ofthe United Kingdom that does not allow same-sex marriage. Unlike England,Scotland and Wales, laws in Northern Ireland forbid abortion except where a mother’slife is at risk, bans that have been upheld by the region’s block ofconservative politicians.
Any die-hard Badger fan remembers the blown call from when the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team lost to Duke in the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Game.With just under two minutes remaining in the game and the Badgers trailing by just five, refs called the ball out of bounds on Wisconsin guard Bronson Koenig. Refs immediately grouped together and decided to look at the play closer on the monitor.Despite the fact that the ball was clearly touched by Duke forward Justise Winslow, officials did not overturn the call and awarded the ball to the Blue Devils. Duke would score on the ensuing possession and ultimately win the game, 68–63.Just days later, NCAA Vice President Dan Gavitt stated that the call was, in fact, incorrect, potentially costing Wisconsin the game and the championship.National championship breakdown: Wisconsin vs. DukeINDIANAPOLIS – One of most historic seasons in Wisconsin men’s basketball history ended in not-so-great fashion for the Badgers, as Read…While Wisconsin fans have a right to be upset about the loss, the refs’ error is one of a number of major blown calls in sports. Blown calls are fairly common in sports thanks to simple human error, but there have been several notable calls/no calls in UW athletics in recent years. With that, let’s take a look at a few:2011 — Big Ten Football Championship GameIn the inaugural Big Ten Football Championship Game, Wisconsin led the Michigan State Spartans by a field goal with 1:37 to go in the game. Wisconsin sent out punter Brad Nortman on fourth down, giving the Spartans a chance to tie or win the game on the ensuing possession.During the punt, however, Nortman got nicked by a Spartan defender after getting the punt off and dramatically fell to the ground. Nortman’s performance got the officials to throw a flag and give the Badgers an automatic first down, allowing Wisconsin to run out the clock and win the game, 42–39.With the win, the Badgers got an automatic bid to the Rose Bowl, where they would lose to the Oregon Ducks, 45–38.Clutch 2nd-half, 3rd-down conversions carry Wisconsin to victoryINDIANAPOLIS – At halftime of the Big Ten Championship Game, the Wisconsin football team couldn’t help but feel a little Read…2013 — Bizarre loss to Arizona State footballIn an early-season game against Arizona State, the No. 20 Badgers trailed the Sun Devils with less than a minute to go, but had an opportunity to kick a game-winning field goal. Badger quarterback Joel Stave rolled out to his left and took a knee, setting up the field goal opportunity inside the 20-yard line.This is where the confusion began.Players from both teams stood around confused, and ASU players even dove onto the ball. Officials did not stop the clock when this happened, however, and the clock ran out before the Badgers were able to get another snap off.Stave and the rest of the team tried to argue the call, but the officials left the field, leaving Wisconsin on the wrong side of a 32–30 loss.UW Athletics: An examination into argument over student-athlete compensationThe University of Wisconsin Athletics Department will likely face an issue in the coming years that is becoming more common Read…2015 — Final Four NCAA Tournament GameIn the Final Four game just before the loss to Duke in the championship, Wisconsin benefited from a late blown call against the seemingly unbeatable Kentucky Wildcats.Wisconsin trailed by two with less than three minutes left in regulation when Badger forward Nigel Hayes air-balled a short shot in front of the hoop as the shot clock expired. Hayes grabbed his own air-ball and put up another shot that managed go in, but it was clear that the basket shouldn’t have counted.Kentucky’s players immediately signaled for a travel, probably not realizing that it was also a shot-clock violation, but officials did not stop play and the game stood tied at 60. Wisconsin would go on to beat Kentucky 71–64, ending the Wildcats’ perfect season one game short of a championship.Final Four breakdown: Wisconsin vs. KentuckyINDIANAPOLIS – The Wisconsin men’s basketball team handed the once-undefeated Kentucky Wildcats their first loss of the season in Saturday Read…2019 — Targeting call against safety Eric BurrellThis is the call that is probably most fresh on the minds of Badger fans.Despite this play being overshadowed by the targeting penalty and ejection of Reggie Pearson Jr. just a few plays later, this targeting call was much more controversial in terms of officiating.In a blowout win over Michigan earlier this season, safety Eric Burrell went in for the tackle on Wolverine quarterback Dylan McCaffrey, who decided to slide. With the slide, Burrell inadvertently had helmet-to-helmet contact with McCaffrey, drawing a flag from the officials and resulting in an ejection of Burrell for supposedly targeting the quarterback.While this play had no real impact on the outcome of the game, the call was definitely a mistake in the eyes of many, including several NFL players.Looking at the blown calls presented here, it’s clear that the mistakes of officials can go either way depending on the luck of each side on any given night. Unfortunately, human error exists in officiating and will continue to exist so long as referees are human, which may not be the case in the future.
Former Everton goalkeeper Neville Southall has told talkSPORT manager Roberto Martinez will go down as a club legend if he guides the team to Europa League glory this season.The Toffees progressed to the competition’s round of 32 as group winners, despite a 1-0 defeat to Russian side Krasnodar at Goodison Park on Thursday night.Claiming top spot in Group H enhanced their chances of making the last-16, as they avoid a metting with the teams dropping down from the Champions League, and Southall insists Everton should make the competition their number one priority as they look to end the club’s long wait for silverware.The Merseyside outfit haven’t won a major trophy since their 1995 FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United, where superstar glovesman Southall was the hero with a series of crucial saves.And the Welshman believes the Spanish boss will etch his name into Everton folklore if they go all the way.“Any silverware Roberto Martinez can stick in the trophy cabinet will make him an Everton legend,” he told The Sports Bar.“It would take a small miracle for us to win the league at the moment and it looks like we’re going to struggle to get into the Champions League, unless we hit some magnificent form after Christmas.“So at the moment our best route to a trophy in the Europa League, so we really need to try and have a good go in this competition.“We need to win a trophy – we’ve gone too long without one – and, when you look at the teams that have gone through from the group stages, we are capable of winning the Europa League.”
