I'd like to see them bring in video refs/reviews besides goal line tech.
Preferably captains/coaches getting a limiter number of challenges per match/half.
What do you guys reckon?
Would have been interesting to check this one too, though you'd need something to keep it in check so it doesn't turn into Rugby League's vid ref ever 30 seconds.
I think it would be cool, but think about this.
>player in front of the keeper about to score a goal
>referee blows whistle, calls offside
>play stops, attacking player simply shoots the ball anywhere
>video ref time
>it was onside
If you bring video to football it could not be applied on offsides (except when ref not validating a goal because he whistle after it was scored).
It could be use only on penalty kicks and serious fouls (like if it deserves a red or not).
Football is too rigged/corrupt to see it happening though.
Its the logical step forward that needs to be done to improve the game. I would give the coach 3 challenges (like in handegg) where refs get a video review of the play and then decide. If the challenge was wrong, coach is charged with one of his 3 possible subs (like handegg's timeouts).
Sadly this will never happen, cause it would destroy refball match fixing, and ruin FIFA's business.
The line superimposed on the pitch isn't straight in this image. Look at the stripEs on the grass, the "offside line" is slightly more than halfway to the right of the grass stripe on the nearside, but off to the left of halfway of the grass stripe on the far side.
He's still probably marginally off, but it's a lot closer than this image makes it look
Well, the "tech" in OP's pic sure is bullshit... if that's the kind of shit they're gonna try to pull with it, fuck it
give each manager two or three challenges per game. if you're worried about the flow of the game, limit them only to big decisions (like penalties, goals, and red cards). the fourth official walks over to a little monitor to watch replays of the incident, and then tells the main shitcunt what the score is.
Kind of a casual here, but aren't both teams on one sideline? Put a track along the opposite side with cameras perpendicular to the sideline, and either automated or manually-controlled to stay even with the last man. It would make reviews fairly easy for offside calls.
As for how they are officiated, it would make sense to do it like turnovers in football. Anything that's even close is played as a continuation, then at the earliest continuation/change of posession, the review would occur.
Regular camera angles can already be used for goals, enforcing diving, and sideline calls.
Honestly I get the opposition to replay, it's rusty at best when introduces in every sport it's in, but it gets refined over time and starts to improve play. If you have the technology to make the right call without severely changing the way the game is played, there is no excuse not to do so.
No, we need refball so Gazprom FC can get to the RO16 every year.
I still wonder why they don't use an aerial lateral cam for checking offsides on TV, longside cams are just horrible.
Pic related, a gyroscopic 360° cam is actually nice on some replays and provides a better view of the action.
It's embarrassing tbh. All the people who are complaining about the flow of the game are full of shit. If it gets stopped for a foul or to call an offside or to celebrate a goal then there is plenty of time to make sure the decision is a good one
protip: video reviews simply displace human error (essentially a constant) away from the football field itself and into the lap of the video reviewer. with regards to offside, fouls and simulation, it's still essentially a referee making a decision in the end. The same amount of incorrect decisions would occur, just for different reasons. No longer would blatant simulation occur, but the implementation of video evidence would force fifa rule makers to bring a greater level of rigor, clarity and specificity to the rule regarding simulation. This creates a more complex rule which opens up various interpretations of the said rule. Different interpretations, due to different referees gives different results and ultimately an identical amount of inconsistency (human error) to what we already have. Sometimes things are just against you, sometimes they are not. That is sport.
Have algorithms monitoring the game in real time, which then send a taptic and audio signal to the ref whenever there's an offside.
>no need for breaks
>no need for more refs
While we're at it, when does FIFA introduce a proper clock?
>reduce game time to 60 minutes
>clock stops whenever ball is out of play
Is it that fucking difficult? This change doesn't cost anything and would already improve the sport massively.
