Default Intelligent Football

So now the Technology is offering us three options to make the Football game 'Intelligent',

1- Install a chip inside Football that will continuously send signals to the receiver outside the ground so that its position at any time during the game can be sensed

2- Install Hawk Eye Cameras at the blind spots near Goal and corners so that it can be decided whether the Ball was 'Inside the Goal Line' or not

3- Leave the technology and continue playing with the probability of human error


I suggest 2nd option, Hawk Eye is in Tennis, Cricket etc, so why not in Football?

What do you think, which option is better?

What about another choice?

Better officials.

The standard at this once-every-four-years World Cup has mostly been dreadful, to the extent that the usually-error-prone Howard Webb is now reportedly on the short list of three for the final.

In the case of goal-line situations, an extra official at each end (to stand behind the goal) would have seen England draw level at 2-2. Note the officials at the Dubai Sevens (rugby of course) - one ref, two guys running the lines, one behind each end............ works perfectly.

Correct, but still, no matter how better the officials are, the probability of human error is still there. Even the very good ones take wrong decisions at the very deciding moments. Can't talk about Rugby, but Cricket, so many names of the Umpires (Referees) who have given wrong decisions while they are still considered the most accurate ones.

a friend of mine was working on intelligent football kits as well, that would send information such as breathing rates, pulse, perspiration rates etc to the sidelines... not that it would have helped with the goal but maybe it could detect which of our players weren't working hard enough?

Nice...but then, the players would argue that their heart is trained well because of which it doesn't beat much even if they are putting their best efforts

It's not F1!

The real issue with introducing high tech, intelligent kits and balls is that the equipment would become more intelligent than the players (and 90% of the fans). That cannot be a good thing.

Funny you should bring up that topic as it was one of the topics in the BBC's Click program last week before England lost that second goal.

The goal line technology is based on electromagnetics with a sensor in the football...see:

There's another issue - in rugby and cricket, the referee/umpire refers the incident (a try or a wicket) to the television official when he needs clarification about the decision.

That's fair enough on the face of it - but what if the ref simply doesn't see what has happened? If he didn't think Lampard's shot had been close to crossing the line, why would he refer it?

Surely we don't want every decision referred? That would be a nightmare and 90 minutes would become two hours easily enough.

When watching the england - germany game Mrs Millhouse came up with a good idea. Where it became obvious that a goal was scored but not allowed then that team should be allowed a penalty. That wouldn't necessarily result in the game keep stopping or decisions having to be referred.
