After a disappointing and frustrating day in Melbourne, Wellington Phoenix coach Ernie Merrick is hoping the introduction of video replays will help his side climb the A-League table. Carl Yastrzemski Jersey .The Phoenix were beaten 2-1 by Melbourne City at AAMI Park on Sunday in match with two penalties, nine yellow cards and plenty of line-ball calls.Referee Kurt Ames had a busy day but Merrick disagreed with his decision to give City captain Bruno Fornaroli a penalty for the decisive goal.Rather than spray the official, who returned to A-League refereeing this season after a four-year absence, Merrick preferred to talk up a way of helping him out - video refereeing.We need it and we need it now, he said on Sunday night.Youve got to have video refereeing.Its been proven to be more accurate in every other professional game.The sooner we get accuracy on penalty kicks and offside calls, the better.Im sure it will be difficult to begin with but then it will be more streamlined and the game will be a much more honest game.The A-League has been chosen by FIFA as a test market for video refereeing in the new year, along with five other major footballing nations.FFA chief David Gallop has championed the idea, with Victory boss Kevin Muscat and Sydney FC chief executive Tony Pignata among the fans.Merrick suggested a number of decisions would have been overturned from Sundays loss, and they might have made all the difference.In the first half he called Kosta Barbarouses offside when he was onside and it continually happens to us, he said.Weve been called eight times offside when our players were onside.Look at Bulut for Wanderers the other day, it just keeps happening.The key decision was the 70th minute awarding of a free kick to Fornaroli, which Merrick suggested was contrived by the Uruguayan.If you watch Bruno, hes got hold of the shirt of Marco Rossi and he goes for an overhead kick, he said.He nearly kicks Marco in the face, misses the ball and pulls Marco down on top of him.Marco gets a yellow card and he gets a penalty ... that really killed us.When video referees come in those situations will resolve themselves so much better.City coach John van t Schip disagreed with Merricks view of the Fornaroli winner, backing Ames calls on both penalties.The referee in those two occasions made the right decision, he said. Brock Holt Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Luis Tiant Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. http://www.redsoxapparelsshop.com/babe-ruth-jersey-c-6/ . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. Defending champions Perth Wildcats have survived yet another late scare, posting a fourth-straight NBL win with a nailbiting 72-69 triumph over Melbourne United.The Wildcats (4-1) led by 12 points halfway through the final quarter of Sundays clash in Melbourne but United (3-2) quickly clawed back the deficit before their home fans at Hisense Arena.With less than a minute on the clock, Melbourne double-teamed Wildcats star Casey Prather and his pass was intercepted by Nate Tomlinson, who had a clear path to the basket.Another turnover and another Tomlinson layup cut the margin back to three points and United managed to secure a defensive stop.But with the seconds counting down, Cedric Jackson shot an airball to deny United a chance at overtime.It was a familiar tale for the Wildcats, who have almost thrown away each of their wins this season with poor showings in the final quarter.Prather was quiet by his standards but stepped up when it mattered for the Wildcats, making aggressive plays at the death to finish with 16 points.Captain Damian Martin put on a defensive masterclass, the 186cm point guard pulling down 13 rebounds to go with his five assists, while Matthew Knight chipped in 14 points and nine boards.Melbourne led at the first two breaks as power forward Majok Majok (12 points, five rebounds) imposed himself on the glass.With star shooting guaard Chris Goulding missing with an ankle injury, United were able to spread the scoring load but Majok was their only scorer to reach double figures. Dustin Pedroia Jersey. United were again let down by poor three-point shooting, draining just 20 per cent of their shots from beyond the arc compared to Perths 38 percent.Wildcats coach Trevor Gleeson lauded the work of captain Martin, who played for 34 minutes after Jarrod Kenny was sidelined early with a groin injury.I thought Damo was outstanding there, Gleeson said.We had Jarrod Kenny go down in the first five minutes so we didnt have a backup point guard. For him to step up to get 13 rebounds when we really needed that, that just shows you leadership out there.He got a good crack in the jaw (in) the first 30 seconds of the third. Hes tough. Hell play hurt and he did that today.Melbourne coach Dean Demopoulos said his sides offence had appeared rushed which had hurt their chances of making shots.Maybe Perth had something to do with that. Im sure they did to some degree but I think some of it was self-inflicted, he said.Were missing a bunch and have continually missed a bunch. Well see how it goes. Hopefully it gets better but if not, weve got to learn how to win without that element.
