FIFA Rulemakers balk again on technology
Reuters, July 19th, 2010 2:14PM

MOST COMMENTED

FIFA President Sepp Blatter said "it would be a nonsense not to reopen the file on goal line technology" after Frank Lampard's shot crossed the German goal line at the 2010 World Cup but was not awarded. However, soccer's rulemakers -- the International Football Association Board (IFAB) - will not discuss goal line technology when it meets Wednesday in Cardiff.

The technical sub-committee of the IFAB has just one item on the agenda: the continuing experiment with additional assistant referees behind the goals as trialled in the Europa League last season.

The earliest date for any debate about goal line technology would be at the next IFAB meeting in October. Any rule-changing decision on goal-line technology would not be taken until IFAB's next annual meeting in March 2011.

The IFAB, which conisists of one representative from each of the four British associations and four from FIFA, rejected the implementation of goal-line technology last March.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ih3_7zN9Zw The evidence from Goal Line Cameras will help sway public opinion to higher standards of Fair Play in Football, at least on the goal line, where fair play is most important. It is, however, the responsibility of fairminded football fans everywhere to sway the opinion of FIFA to install Goal Line Technology & update the laws governing goal line infractions. If Goalies dishonestly scooping a ball back in play after it has already crossed the goal line disgusts your sense of moral virtue, then Stand Up for Fair Play in Football! If Defenders or Strikers deliberately using their hands to deny an inbound ball on the goal line offends your sense of justice, then Stand Up for Fair Play in Football! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ih3_7zN9Zw
