Goal Line Technology Proves to be Problematic for Many

Goal line technology has come on the scene. And it was hoped that this might sound the death knell of controversies over whether goals were legal or illegal towards the boundary line. 

On the occasion of France vs. Honduras, this selfsame technology only divided the critics most of whom were fans on either side of the teams. All this started when there was a lot of anger and resentment over past goals not being counted as legal by authorities. 

The FIFA administration at long last decided to give goal line technology a chance to show the world its real face. And the results were surprising. It was thought to be a straightforward affair but it turned out to be full of kinks and knots. 

According to FIFA, "GoalControl is equipped with 14 high-speed cameras located around the pitch, with seven cameras focusing on each goalmouth. The ball’s position is continuously and automatically captured in 3D and the indication of whether a goal has been scored is immediately confirmed within one second to a watch worn by each of the match officials."

GoalControl was set up in about a dozen stadiums. And more-than-a-dozen cameras that got fitted around the stadiums had razor sharp footage to boot. Yet this was not enough for that perfectionist creature called man. 

3D imagery of the football going about its path on the field is captured on the cameras. And second-by-second surveillance of goals being scored is a sure thing. 

At the recent goal which nearly made it, the technology’s take and the people’s naked eye proof didn’t tally. When the technology’s criterion was judged to be the deciding verdict (obviously!) there was outrage among the crowds. 

Many formerly dissed gurus started diatribes against the technology and its supposedly flawed version of reality. But then a really odd thing happened. 

The workings of the technology were reevaluated and the end result was that the verdict was re-decided in favor of the naked eye version. This then again caused uproar, although it did bring a sense of human justice back into the equation. 

There can be no doubt that technology is not the be all and end all of everything. It too can malfunction so we have to be very careful. After all, balls that function as information-relaying devices are a whole new ball game (pardon the pun).
