    Technology - Cricket vs Soccer

    After seeing last weeks disallowed goal for Spurs against United I feel that Cricket is doing pretty well in terms of using technology. Being a United fan I didnt mind the decision at all. But you have to spare a thought for Spurs fans, they were robbed 3 points. In such a high profile game in the Primiership it would have taken 5 - 10 seconds to set the record straight. I think Fifa should seriously think of introducing technology.
    ICC at least expt. with lbw decisions which are the more debatable of the lot. I think cricket is using enough technology at this stage. ICC may not be handling technology well off the field with angles, degrees... of bowlers arm but on field they have done pretty good job. What do you say?

    There is much less in socccer that the naked eye (umpires/refrees) cant see. Cricket due to various factors like the faintness of edges and the various provisions of the lbw decision can easily fool the naked eye.

    If there were no goal posts and the refree had to decide on whether it was a goal based on markings on the ground or something like that and the height of the bal above the ground as it passed the goal line, we would realise the problems of the cricket umpire.

    As a closet pedant (I have this little voice in me that yells "I think you'll find that...") I feel obliged to point out that "soccer" is actually an English name derived from "Association Football".

    It's coinage is generally attributed to Charles Wreford-Brown in 1863, who later became an official of the FA. He was asked by some friends at Oxford Uni whether he cared to join them for a game of "Rugger" (Rugby Union). He refused, preferring instead to go for a game of "Soccer", his play on the word "Association". The name caught on and stuck in countries where other sports are erroneously tagged "Football" (US, Canada, NZ, Oz).

    BTW, now the Australian Soccer Association has rebranded itself the Australian Football Association what are the Socceroos called?!

    Obviously Victorians with duff haircuts in tight, sleeveless shirts punching the ball to each other & fighting amongst themselves could be described as lots of things, but Football?!?!

    Fair play. We'll just agree that you & the Septics are wrong & leave it at that!
