It’s amazing that a sport as popular as soccer has yet to join the 21st century when it comes to using technology. The glaring need for instant replay to review important plays was magnified during the 2010 World Cup. FIFA has resisted, but even tennis player Novak Djokovic knows it’s time for them to take the next step:
“I still don’t understand why they don’t have technology in football! Its incredible,for most global sport in the world!!” Djokovic tweeted Saturday.
It’s unclear what game inspired the tweet, but his point is valid. In tennis they use the hawkeye system to review line calls. Though the hawkeye system is flawed, it’s still a vast improvement over relying on the calls of the judges. Soccer could use some replay too when it comes to controversial calls.Google+
