Electronic Umpires

I can bet on this. The 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa will definitely have Electronic Umpires, I mean Slow Motion replays to help the umpires.

I was shocked this morning at the Super duper fake act (Interesting thread) that the Italian player Fabio Grosso put up in the final seconds, to gain a penalty kick that sealed the game against Australia. Here is what SFGate wrote about the controversy.

All the games/sports (atleast 90% of them) are becoming too competitive. Too much of money. So..here comes cheating in all forms.. betting, faking in the field etc.

I am a strong supporter of electronic devices in the field to support the decision of the umpires.

i am so damn angry. That was totaly uncalled for and they Italians surely dont deserve it. But then we've been playing this cat and mouse game for years now, everytime calling for video replay, but they just wont do it. I mean italy has more fans than australia, and australi is not among the choosen ones.

Sad.

NV Sir,
FIFA is adamant about not using 3rd refree. I guess this is just the begining I am sure there is going to be much more controversy as the game heads for the finals.

hello NV Sir,
well, the electronice devices do help a lot with decision making, it has improved decisions in cricket a lot, but did u come across Steve Bucknor's (cricket umpire) controversial statement tat even the clips used by 3rd umpires for decision making are doctored and cannot be trusted 100% anymore?? guess if something is done to improve things, there are always detractors who squeeze their brains in the opposite direction to tamper with them!!

Yes,it was really an absurd act done by ITALY just to benefit the penalty,It was clear from the reply it was not a foul leadz for a penalty..!

I agree. That was very unfare at that point of time. We should surely bring in Electronic devices to monitor the game.

i guess the game had to face these kind of atrociies, sooner or later. and the earlier somebody gets to hold the dog by the leash, the better..
