The existing technology in cricket coverage with snicko and hotspot could do the job easily. My guess is they don’t want to pay for the rights NOR it seems invest in high magnification cameras that show the ball/ post with clarity rather than blurred crap vision we currently have. Totally unprofessionalSurely technology has got to a point where they can put a chip in the ball that tracks it and can measure a deviation, that the ball crossed the line (goals or boundary) and even if it went through the goals!
As if they would cut down the playtime for networks. Networks probably figure that at half time people walk away to do shit and don’t see their ads. They won’t cut the runtime of the “show” which will allow longer periods for advertisers with viewers watching pre and post match shows.
Finally, the next idea in the same article of having a player driven review system? Seriously!
