Does increased review technology help or hurt sport? Are mistakes and missed calls part of the game? At what point are we "ruining the sport"?
>all sports welcome
have you seen what hockey has done, they were super early on this, always adapt your rules and officiating. football needs some rule adjustments to favor a more dynamic playstyle and faster action.
maybe shrink the crease and widen the field by 5 feet on either side. Make the net 6 " taller people have grown taller since it was formalized
There's a fine line between bogging the game down with needless stoppages and ensuring accuracy, but I feel getting the call right is more important. Referees can't see everything all the time and they can be subject to bias just like any human.
PREDICTION: In my lifetime MLB umpire crew will be reduced to a single ump who monitors sensors that determine strike/ball and safe/out calls. The current MLB review is retarded, so this would actually be an improvement even though it defies tradition.
Amerifat football: replays have bogged down the game too much. I'd like to see them pare back what can be looked at a bit. touchdowns and turnovers, and on catches just the two feet down. they still can't really figure out possession/is it a catch, so no more looking at that part.
your co worker is a retard, tell him the main part of the sport is a thing called football and to do that the game must be pure, impartial and not up to external forces running games
Goal line technology would be an improvement in the Belgian league tbqh. Avoid discussion like the one about the English WC goal against West-Germany which is still going on.. Too bad it's too expensive for clubs in small leagues, more so for the smaller clubs in said leagues which makes it a bad investment for the larger ones if they're the only ones to have it.
I expect (and hope) it to become cheaper in the following years. A ref's impact on a game is just too big now, especially if you consider the amounts of money at stake.
the moment you stop the game you just ruined it
I hate in handegg how like for a centimeter that a shoelace touches the edge of the field than it's offside and it has to be reviewed for 20 minutes with 50 camera angles
I would hate in football that if a ball hits the top post, goes down just over the goal line, and heads back to the field, that then the game should stop to review if it was a goal or not
if there's enough technology to make the correct decisions instantly, then yes, fine, apply them
Of course it does, only luddites unironically believe that ref mistakes should be part of the game.
Christ I can't wait for robot linesman and for refs to be able to see the play from 5+ cameras.
>if there's enough technology to make the correct decisions instantly, then yes, fine, apply them
Did you miss the WC, or EPL or SerieA (i think Bundes too), Goal line techonligy works and is fast.
Now ofssides or dives arte another problem
With technology UEFA demons can't stroke Barcelonas dragon dildo when there is a close call.
I will be more than happy with a 5th ref reviewing dives in the box or other situations.
tech won't be able to determine what's a foul or not, because it's a subjective rule, a mere touch isn't always a foul, it depends on intention (or willingly taking a high risk) and intensity.
at least there can be a complete 3D mapping of the field that can reliably solve the offside rule, that would be cool.
> train everyday
> getting trough injuries
> struggling against all the big teams
> barely reaching the cup final after 1st rival choked, 2nd rival alineated wrong, 3rd rival lose shootout, and we become full goat for the 4th rival
> final day
> lose 1-0 after ref fuck up a penaltie outside the box and didnt redeem beacuse he has scenic panic
> all a season of efforts into the trash because a 3 seconds fuck up
technology is objetively the only correct option; the discuss should be about how to apply it in minor leagues
the only downside that I can think of to this would be that smaller leagues couldn't afford said tecnology, unbalancing things
but if I was the one who called the shots, tecnology all day every day
The football league at one point where considering using all those TV shekels to implement goal line tech in all professional leagues in England (so basically up to and including league 2)
because it makes the game more human, the fans shit talking the ref, the players whining everytime.It builds pressure to make a mistake, and the mistake is part of the game, just like trying to deceit the ref when diving, it is a strategy.
atleast in matches like libertadores/UCL. in the world cup i agree it should have more technologic help to the refs
Why should there be a 3rd party whose performance literally affects the outcome of the game?
Leave it up to the participants of the sport. Remove as much of the guesswork as possible, while keeping the flow of the game mostly intact.
La Liga is the only "big" league to not implement any technology yet, not even the goal line technology. You know why? Because tat would limit the level of refballing of the Spanish FA. And Tebas, Villar and their friends want to keep refballing in favour of MADrid.
Most games have a defined set of rules, so technology simply allows the outcome to be accurate rather than relying on a referee who's point of view might cause him to make an incorrect decision.
>the fans shit talking the ref, the players whining everytime
they can still do that with technology, but refs should ever know if some player was faking out inside or outside the box
a match never pass of 60 mins of net time and usually averages in 40 mins
a few minutes more will not change this and if it does, they just should aply more strict extra time rules
Offsides are way easier to check than dives m8, even easier than goal-lines
i think football should only apply innovations that doesn't slow the game.
videoref and other shit for offsides nope, eagle eye yeah.
waiting for the videoref would be annoying, like in ice hockey
I'm in favour of technology and reviews however there needs to be strict rules on when to use them, for instance in top level international Rugby these days everything gets reviewed just so the referee can cover his back, it's incredibly annoying.
>You will never see another coach kicking dust onto the umpire's shoes before getting ejected
No on the field umpires will take away an entertaining part of the game. I can see the benefits, but I'm not sure it's worth it. It's like getting rid of things like stormb owl threads from spee.
Yes but you cant stop an action to check if it's offside because if it isnt you stopped it anyway. And you cant even let everything and only check if becomes a dangerous action because then it would be a mess
As long as It's not intrusive/stopping the game more, technology is better
I've never understood why a lot of people get angry the Rugby League for checking most try's on the video ref
The game stops after a try anyway, you get to watch the play in slow motion several times from several angles to make up your own mind on whether you think It'll be allowed or not and then watch the big KFC advertisments light up TRY or NO TRY what's not to like about that
Majority of friends are soccer fans and they always get mad about it. I don't bother arguing about it. I do however watch a ton of soccer with them and always make to sure shove it in their faces if there was a major game changing decision made by a ref because soccer is too good to use technology
