One Response to EPL Clubs to Adopt Goalline Technology for 2008-09

    Isn’t this the idea of puting a chip inside the ball?

    If it is, I don’t really like it. I read articles about how the chip was jarred loose and didn’t function. It seems like a very suspect way of achieving its goal.

    I’d much rather see the use of replay. The cameras are already in place and would be a quick simple fix.
