Goal line technology for .01% of world footballPosted by George Cumming
The recent decision by the International FA Board to allow goal line technology to be used is a momentous decision for world football – or at least .01% of world football.
Goal line technology, at a cost of up to $400,000 per installation, is only for the rich leagues and competitions.
Worldwide football on the public parks will gain no benefit.
The controversy of whether a ball did or did not cross the goal line will be determined by technology in only a few cases.
Everyone else can argue about it afterwards in the café or in the pub.
That is football.
Long may these football controversies continue!
