Video Refs… hmm

OK so Italy won the world cup. But here’s where there are clear double standards coming from FIFA regarding technology. Zidane is sent off based on video footage viewed by a fourth official – but neither the ref or linesman saw his unsubtle head butt on an Italian (who must have said something nasty about Zidane’s mum)oypsl_zidane_638399[1]

How can a player be sent off using retrospective video footage, when clearly incorrect decisions on field are not corrected using the same technology. (Ahem – Australia’s last minute penalty to Italy).

FIFA – step out of the dark ages. You just built an awesome website for this world cup. (http://fifaworldcup.yahoo.com/06/en). Now back up with some sanity and bring the fourth official into the game. Nuff said.
