New scientist reports that FIFA is to review goal line technology

This is my response, submitted to New Scientist.

What’s the problem? Ice hockey uses a chip inside a hockey puck so TV can present an enlarged image on the screen. The same chip technology could be embedded in the toecaps of players boots to show up off-sides etc.
If FIFA is worried about the referee’s authority, then have another referee being the only one able to view (during matchtime) the evidence and able to tell the Ref on the pitch what he has seen via the earpiece.
