Yes it is high time they used technology available to make football as fair as possible. It would be very simple to include a chip in the ball to determine over the line goals, and a refereeing team to make a quick judgment to call down to on pitch ref for decisions such as off-sides and penalties. Hopefuly would also cut out the diving we all hate.Fact is the standard of refereeing this season has been atrocious. The whole system needs an overhaul including red card bans....Taylor snapping Eduardo's leg in 3 places rec'd the same 3 match ban as Petrov's swing and miss on Osman. Ridiculous.'squasher', I am a City fan and although you may feel harshly done by the ref in this match, I am sure you can understand like most of the other PL teams we have had our share of refs ruin matches and scorelines.'fugly' obviously a rugby fan.

but if they brought in a video ref it may stop the footballers doing their prima ballerina bit and falling over to get free kicks.of course it would spoil the 'spirit' of the game, it would make it fair.

You have a good point and they should use technology to ensure fairness ...why not eh?
