    I use tennis as an example to show how using replay in sport actually works, I could use rugby as well.

    see with football and tennis it IS different.

    tennis has a lot of starts and stops for one, its easier to implement. but the majority of calls looked at replay are either in or out, its simple. a black and white questions. in football a lot of the calls are up to the referees discretion. a foul to some is not to others, even with offsides and handballs, different refs will call things differently. (i feel the new rules have helped eff that, a handball should be a handball, offsides should be offsides, but its not the case now a days)
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.

    it could work on certain things, the henry handball, goals that may or may not crossed the line.

    but for fouls and things of that nature are up to a refs discretion. its a subjective call.

    Yeah thats why I think there should be a limited amount of replays, so its only used in important decisions like henry's handball.

    It depends what your definition of "works" is.

    Personally, I happen to LOVE football exactly as it is right NOW, including all the mistakes.

    Football is the worlds most popular sport for a reason.

    American Football is boring, games can last 5 hours, and its boring.

    Your saying it would work but you dont even know how to implement it!! How can you only give team a certain number of replays??? If they use up all theri replays, and the get a bad decision - they will demand technology be used !!!

    And team will use it to their advantage to stop play. It opens up so many avaneues of wrongness.

    And you would have to have it in EVERY SINGEL league all over Europe, all over the world, every tournament, otherwise the game of football would be totoally different from country to country!!

    This isnt the Football I know and love. Mistakes happen. Football is a very human game. Unlike American Football with is robotic and techonolgy driven. I like my Football to be old fashioned in todays plastic age.


    Its real.

    they only use VR in bastketball for buzzer beaters. and i think hockey only uses it for goal line things.

    so those 2 sports, that are more compareble to football in terms of play, they dont even use it.

    Krhin doesn't need to play for Slovenia when all our benefactors play as well as on the game with Russia. Yeah, we don't have no Zahovič in our team anymore, but that's better - no stars. The last time Slovenia played on the World Cup we played against Spain in the first game and the coach Katanec sub'd Zahovič in the second half after we were losing 3:1.

    Then they argued and he wasn't playing anymore. A shame really.

    But Slovenia really really never played this good. Inter was boring and frustrating to watch in the last month - when Slovenia won 5 games in the last 7, and lost only to Russia and England [the game where Rooney cheated for the penalty]

    If we continue to play like this [plus we have three pretty dope players on the bench - Krhin, Pečnik and Ljubljankič], we can surprise. The lack of stars is a good thing, plus IMO we have one of the best goalkeepers in the world [Handanovič - he plays for Udinese]. Again let me remind you that we only got 4 goals in the 10 games we played. For a small country like we are, this is remarkable.
    bring back begongo!!

    honestly, I don't think they should have instant replays as I said before, football is reliant on a good flowing game.

    But I do think the governing body in charge should have the guts to action another replay if one team put in a good appeal. This was a very good appeal after they heard Henry's comments and saw the video evidence, they should have just played a one game qualifier.

    Then from there, got a decent committee together to make these hardass decisions (because they obviously haven't got the guys to do it now). That's the way I think it should go.

    Peace be with some of you.

    "Its not the handball that shocks me the msot, its how after the game, the guy who had just stole the game went to sit next to an Irish player like he was gonna comfort him. If I was Irish he wouldn't have lasted 3 seconds."
