The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) has instructed Premier League referees to start employing pitchside monitors when making potential red card decisions, according to BBC Sport's Simon Stone.

Match officials in England's top flight have been criticized for not consulting pitchside monitors and instead conferring with the video assistant referee (VAR).

MLB to investigate reports 2018 champion Red Sox stole signs

  MLB to investigate reports 2018 champion Red Sox stole signs BOSTON — Major League Baseball says it will investigate allegations the Boston Red Sox illegally used their video replay room to steal signs between opposing pitchers and catchers during their 2018 World Series championship season.
