It’s about Time we Let Technology Tell the Truth in Football

I can still remember that gloomy afternoon when England lost to Germany in the 2010 World Cup, I had just launched the Sports Techie community blog. Surely that Lampard shot was over the line!  There’s plenty more stories where that comes from, though that Geoff Hurst shot in the 1966 World Cup Final was miles over the line, wasn’t it?

It took the world of football until 2012 to finally agree on introducing goal-line technology and not a moment too soon. Finally we do have the goal-line technology that answers the question of whether a goal is indeed a goal or not.  About time too I hear you screaming “and why has it taken so long?”

NFL And NCAA College Football Playoffs Games Need First Down Laser Systems Now

The NFL is down to the last month of the 2014 regular season and college football rivalry weekend has both fan and playoff consequences so the importance of getting first down and goal line calls correct by officials is paramount to a fair and impartial game outcome. I cannot speak for the many Sports Techie community blog readers and followers across the nation and world but for me, marking the correct spot of the ball has become a serious problem that not only affects the results of the game but causes teams to miss the playoffs and coaches to be fired.
