Why not just implement the whole way???

Sepp (Fifa) wants it, Platini (UEFA) hates it.

Yeah, a lot of the dinosaurs that are at the head of football are still against any form of technology. Platini literally said that whether the ball crossed the line or not is to the interpretation of the human referee... what a joke.

Now that goal line technology is there, I just want some sort of video review (like what they do in rugby where it doesn't take 10 minutes) and suspensions after game for heavy simulation/faking.

I am for it and against it at the same time. I dont know about this one.

How can you be against? It'll tell us right away if the ball crossed the line or not. It won't slow down the game like when they do video review in american football or hockey. I don't see a single reason as to why we would rather not now and/or not allow a valid goal like the Lampard one in the WC2010.

If the officials behind the goal did their job they wouldn't even need this but it's about time!
