      Pretty much as we have all suspected.

      Edit : They nominated Bobby Madley and Craig Pawson  :lmao:

      Not surprised. When you have people as physically unfit as Jon Moss appointed to referee high profile matches in the top league then it's no wonder FIFA ran away.

      The reffing has been abysmal this season. Notice the amount of diving that players get away with since that pen against Lovren?? Every man and his dog has been diving since then and pretty much been getting FK/Pen's. Then you have that incident where Kane was offside but wasn't according to British refs because Lovren touched it? Lmao. I have watched so many games this season to know that is bullshit (the same sh*t happened in Spurs vs Arsenal and was given offside and nothing was said, lmao).

      Why do we have to use British refs? Can’t we just pay the good ones to come ref in the PL?

      Something I’ve never understood. Surely just in terms of employment law the PL can’t discriminate and rule out all non British refs based solely on their nationality?

      I think there is room for AI in refereeing. It can't be that bad, a robot linked to sensors and cameras allover the pitch.
      A good enough technology can detect where exactly the foul started, if there was contact and if balls crossed what lines, every player on the pitch position with programmed offside rules..the same technology used in driverless cars could be used as a foundation. It would be instant decisions, even faster than humans and no referee getting in the way of the ball! an artificial whistle from a speaker with the decision displayed on a big screen.

      There you go.

      British refs are not very used to VAR yet either. That was probably also a factor in why they are not at the World Cup. Other European and American refs use it every week, and are therefore more likely to be faster and more efficient, when it is needed to overturn a wrong decision. Which will be on a regular basis.

      Perhaps in time, I think you still need humans there to stop people cheating the system (even though they cheat the human system currently)
