Via ESPN: Blatter apologizes to England, Mexico
FIFA president Sepp Blatter says soccer’s governing body will "reopen the file" on video technology at a meeting of its rule-making panel in Wales next month, after two major refereeing mistakes at the World Cup.
The officiating has been horrible in the World Cup to date and could clearly be fixed by various relatively easy technological fixes. That FIFA may finally be feeling the pressure is a good sign.
I was listening to the BBC’s World Have Your Say yesterday and the consensus seemed pretty clearly on the pro-replay/pro-goal line technology side, so its not just Americans (who were denied two goals on clear errors) who are carping on this issue.
