|Over or on the line??|
The most powerful and corrupt man in football - Sepp Blatter - seems to have finally come around and called for goal line technology. Well it is about time! I have to disagree with UEFA president...and one of my all time favorite players...Platini who seems stubbornly against introducing the technology. Platini seems to think this is a slippery slope and technology will play a greater role in the game.
I strongly disagree. Every other major sport has some technology to aide the officials -
- NFL replays that coaches have a limited number of appeals for.
- NBA officials use replay on tight calls - such as out of bounds
- MLB leverages replay to determine home runs
- NHL uses replay for goal calls
- Rugby goes to a tv replay for tries
- Tennis for an in our out call
