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)
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.
