Petition FIFA on video technology
This is topical. This is front of the mind. And with a good not-for-profit cause attached - FoodBank South Africa, established last year and already in six cities here, with as many as 15 more to be added by next year. In its first year, Foodbank SA served up almost 20 million meals at a cost of about 10 cents each.
Just arrived: A petition to FIFA to introduce video technology to protect the integrity of the game:
Dear Mr Blatter
I am a football fan. I recognise that referees are human and that even the best ones make mistakes. I believe that referees need and deserve the support of technology such as video-replay whenever it can be afforded. The integrity of the sport of football depends on it.
Please ask the International Football Association Board to take my preference into account when it meets in July to reconsider this topic.
To add your name to the petition, go here. Pass it on. And thanks.
