BLATANT handball by Henry might knock Ireland out of the World Cup. Why, in this day and age, can we not get video replays to the refs to help them make the right decision. I don't blame the ref, he's done a good job tonight, and the area was pretty crowded so the linesmen could barely see it too. But the cameras CLEARLY show that not only did the ball hit Henry's arm, he then used his arm to hit the ball again and keep it in play.

Why can they not implement this? They use it in rugby and it works f*cking wonders. It is completely logical.
Mal: Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
Zoë: Big damn heroes, sir.
Mal: Ain't we just.

Well, unfortunately, this isn't going to be the situation that convinces Michel Platini is it?


But what will? This is the point. It shouldn't take something like this to have a video ref brought in. Its logical to ensure a fair game, the same way that there are linesmen and its not just one referee guessing the whole time. In this case, the box was packed so the officials could barely see anything, and thats where the most diligence needs to be paid.

I know its part of the game and all that, but why does it have to be? In this day and age, especially when its done in sports like rugby, there is no reason why it shouldn't be implemented

Is it really a good idea for you to set up someone's IT, given your track record with electrical equipment that goes horribly wrong? I could pull a record of posts to illustrate, but I'm in a polite mood.

I don't know exactly, but stuff kept breaking a lot. Either that or I've read the same three posts an ungodly number of times.
