Here's a thought...

You know that technology in tennis where players can challenge a line call, and then the computer does it's crazy thing and says whether it really was in or out?

Why have other sports not adopted this technology? It could be used for the Volleyball lines, or foul balls in baseball?

Either way it's pretty cool.

What do you think any other applications?

EDIT: Soccer came up:

Is there a technology that could be implemented which could call offsides? A camera snapshot? Is this already being used?

I thought they just went and checked where the print was.

But I've been saying for years that soccer linesmen need cameras. I remember during the world cup 06 where that brazilian guy pushed an opponent over when the ref wasn't looking, but the cameras caught it. if the refs had that camera that asshole would've gotten red for sure.

Wow an '01er, I'm impressed, really. And, I've never heard of this, maybe because I hardly watch tennis, or any other sport.

It's called Hawk eye?

It was started in Cricket or something was it not?
just about the only relevance cricket has to the modern age lololololololololol

But yeah, it should be used in more sports. It wouldn't be hard.

That would ruin football. Because the game would be starting and stopping every 10 seconds. It should only be used on the goal lines.

Yes, one of the many few '01er's still hanging around. Many would get scared away but my brain has become numb.

wtf why would it be stopped every 10 seconds? it would only be stopped during fouls and disputes of violence, when it's stopped anyway.

I laughed when I saw this because I remember when it was used in cricket and they said is was unsporting to suggest someone would cheat when a catch was disputed
#10
The reason it has not been implemented in baseball is because of "tradition" and all that good stuff. The old guys from back in the day say it will ruin the game. The umpires just became allowed to check if a home run was fair or foul even though they have had that technology for years...

So it started in cricket, being used to dispute catches??

Pretty sure it was used for LBW decisions.

It's used for LBW, but they use recorded video if a catch is disputed

Only during fouls, ok? How many fouls are there during a match? 50 at least. Each foul will stop the game for 30 seconds to check the camera and punish the player etc. So there is 25 mins gone already. The ball is only in play for about 45 mins per game, so now we have 20 minutes of proper football.

They can still throw coins at the referee though

I'm pretty sure that's a sport in itself.

every sport could use it, but then some of the fun would be diminished, in hockey, football, and rugby if every act of violence was caught then there'd be no fights, and hockey fights are a very important part of the game.

They have video ref. in Rugby, that helps(sometimes). Why they can't just use sensor in the balls that tell you when it is out. This technology is possible and exists yet they still don't use it.
Anyways, I want to snazz up football/soccer by playing on uneven ground, like a steep hill or a ditch. Also arm the players with blunt weaponary and a chariot, yeah now that I would watch.

I played paintball soccer when I went paintballing last, that should be played more.

It was talked about in football but many are against it, claiming it 'interrupts play.'
Tbh I think we need it, the past few seasons in Scotland have been hellish, so many games decided on bad calls.
Not just for offsides and throw ins, but for other reasons as well.
Rangers played Hibs at the end of last season (second last game, very important) and we had a goal disallowed on account of it 'not crossing the line - Photo and we lost out on 2 points due to that decision.

Also for incidents referees cannot see eg. bad tackles and off the ball incidents could be done with being looked at there and then rather than at panels months later.

if players knew they were on camera all the time maybe we WOULDN'T have the fail football we have today, with players diving every two minutes. they'd know they wouldn't get away with it anymore.

They could just stop the clock at each one like in rugby.


Oh and ^ they do have thousands of HD tv cameras pointed at them, they're just ignorant snobbish pricks.

Yeah. It takes up too much time because in most other sports theres no practical way to make a 100% right decision (assuming that the technology is right 100% of the time) because of other rules and decisions involved. It always starts as just checking one thing but then it moves on to checking if another rule was broken and so on and so forth until it depends on a third ref (video ref if you will) to make that decision. Because of the human factor, there is the chance that the third ref will get it wrong anyway because of stupid rule interpretations and/or unclear vision and/or inconclusive evidence.

Really? Quality FIFA ideas.

"Errr.. Hold on while I finish jacking off to a game of women's football. Infuriatingly, their shorts are too long."
".. Done, Sepp?"
"Yes, yes, now this technology you speak of? It's nonsense. Make the woman's shorts very short and maybe we do a deal.."

Ice hockey is played on a hockey rink. During normal play, there are six players, including one goaltender, per side on the ice at any time, each of whom is on ice skates. The objective of the game is to score goals by shooting a hard vulcanized rubber disc, the puck, into the opponent's goal net, which is placed at the opposite end of the rink. The players may control the puck using a long stick with a blade that is commonly curved at one end.

How odd, I see nothing in here about fighting...

It's only there for the benefit of the TV in cricket, so you can see whether the umpire was right or not with LBW decisions and also those quality graphics where it shows where every delivery has pitched and where it was on the batsmen, etc.

The only useful purpose for it in football would be for goal-line decisions. You couldn't use it for offsides (the equipment is fixed, for a start), throw-ins, etc - It would just hold the game up and it would end up lasting 5 hours.
