SPURS VAR-Y GRATEFUL OF TECHNOLOGY

Turkish official Cuneyt Cakir and VAR decide Champions League Quarter final match

It’s long been stated that referees in soccer need technology to help them get decisions right; it’s a topic that always rears it’s head after a high profile error – Frank Lampard’s strike against Germany in the last 16 tie of the 2010 World Cup is one that stands out as a goal that never was. Goal-line technology (GLT) was adopted and what a glowing success it has been. Unfortunately, it’s not only goal line decisions that cause debate and the hunger for more technology to follow gathered momentum and gradually different soccer authorities have gone live with Video Assistant Referees (VAR for short). The Sports Techie community blog is a strong supporter of VAR sports tech...

The New England Patriots have benefited again from the NFL’s review system to secure the number one seed in the AFC Conference for the post-season. Their fortune has drawn the ire and the whisper of ‘conspiracy theory’ by fans and the teams chasing them alike in the battle to reach the Super Bowl. The question has been posed whether the usage of replays, especially slow-motion, is taking the moment out of the sport. The Sports Techie community blog is firm in our support to continue the use of instant replay in sports...
