Is football broken?
mixedknuts: The Beautiful (Broken) Game

I have been having this discussion with Misty; what can be done to stop the petty fouling and inconsistent refereeing in football?

The ref has always been a bit of a loose canon in the game of football.  His word is final whether he is right or wrong, and there are times when he gets it so wrong!  Should there be extra officials?  Should there be video replays during the game?  How about post match reviews?  What should happen if a disallowed goal was actually okay, or an allowed goal was not?  Should the results of such games be overturned after the match?  Should players get carded or banned in a post match review, should wrongly carded players have that decision overturned?

So many questions, with answers that are not obvious it seems.  Go join the debate at The Beautiful (Broken) Game.

I just want to get hold of the magic sponge .. you know the one that's used on the footballers as they roll around on the floor in absolute agony only to jump up and be all fine and dandy 30 seconds later .. could really do with that for my back ...
