FIFA World Cup 2010 may be boring to some, and watching most matches shows you why but one of today’s soccer games was Brazil vs. Ivory Coast, and this was far from boring. Not only did we see 4 goals, but a little controversy as well.
Technology is there for live streaming to referees during World Cup games, and fast replays are accessible to commentators, but why is this technology not used in making decisions during the game?
Since the game ended we have seen Twitter uproar, and other social media sites are alive with debate. The live replay debate will never go away, and there will be those that want this advancement and those that don’t. Today’s “Blunder” will only highlight the need for soccer replays to be made available to referees.
Some of the Tweets coming in include “what’s up with Kaká’s red card!? That was a crazy call”, and “Red card to Kaka was ridiculous!!!” What did you make of the red card? Share your views in the comments, and see live Twitter and web updates via this page.
You can also see the truth and whole story via the video shown below, which includes the Red Card of Kaka, and fights before it. Do you want to see replays used with making in-game decisions?
