I don't believe it is hard to impliment or would it be time consuming. A TV referee sits and watches live feeds and lets the referee know if there is an incident which the refs can then decide if they want to review via replays. Time taken could be a while depending on what the incident is, whatever it is has to be crucial and therefore worthwhile.Vagabondo said:it would be very hard to introduce though, it's impossible to let the game continue for who know's how long after an incident and then go back and check it. one of the best things about this game is that it flows for minutes sometimes, but that makes it hard to incorporate the kinds of technology that gets used in other sports.
Still plenty to debate, even a TV replay can leave room for doubt. You can also discuss incidents outside the box, players reactions, the way teams played and of course go home happy your team wasn't robbed by a blatant dive meaning the ref awards the winning penaltyVagabondo said:also some people actually seem to like the element of human error, but when you see a game like Roma-Juventus from the weekend :wallbang: , and how we got shafted, and consider how some teams always get away with this, i really wonder if something couldn't be done.
Fifa is already trying this kind of solution to decide whenever the ball is past the goalline or not. They've already tested it with the german club Nürnberg and will try it in U17 WC I think.O Glorioso said:Well if they develop a system where a bulb lights up when the ball crosses the line, then yes. Fouls and offside calls should be handled by refs and linesmen. A sensor inside the ball could be developed to detect handballs.
