Petition Tag - goal line
In recent times, many ludicrous events have ocurred over whether the ball crossed the line.
Just to name two examples, when Manchester Utd were denied a late defeat to their rivals when Roy Carrol scooped a ball out yards inside his line due to the blindness of the assistant referee, or when the already controversial Carlos Tevez scored a 'goal' against Blakcburn, helping West Ham to a vital victory.
Looking even further back, another example is in the '66 final, when the goal was given which a Brit would say was a goal, and a German wouldn't. the technology really would have stopped that debate. Wimbledon made a bold leap forwards, introducing hawkeye, and it was a great success (unless you're Roger Federer)- why cant football do the same?
