    Blatter in rare "not a pillock" episode. It's been notable for that alone.

    Re: News - Goal Line Technology to be used in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil

    Imo way too little way too late. The amount of top games that I've watched that have been ruined by not having a video ref is unbelievable. We are only talking about the worlds most watched sport here and it's so far behind the times mainly because of that Blatter buffon. Goal line technology is one step closer sure, but there's still the millions of times the refs can't see if off sides, fouls off ball and just the normal times when the ref just can't see exactly what happened. So what can he do at that point? Ask the touch ref and hope he saw something? It's bloody ridiculous. There should be a video ref the whole entire game who can be referred to and asked to judge on certain decisions. But anyway that will never happen as I've been told a million times lol..too bad then I say. Then don't moan when your favorite team loses in the final of the FA Cup cos the ref was obscured lol, trust me it will happen sooner or later

    I am not a huge fan of football but have seen enough to ask why goal line tech and video refs aren't used.

    When there is instances like the one in the video above at the highest level it is just wrong.

    From other sports I do watch they have actually go video refs etc in... you know moved with the times.

    It should be this, plus a bloke with a bunch of replay systems and each team, like tennis, gets 2 or 3 chances to appeal. Be it penalties or throw-ins - it's up to the manager. That said, I guess something as instant as a goal could be exempt, but still, penalties and offsides can change a game just as much.

    there needs to be a citing commisioner as well (ala rugby) - for events the ref misses that should be deemed a yellow or a red card.
