Never to the dark side

both Linesman to be done away to cut costs?

Recommended Posts

Gianni Infantino is considering doing away with line persons and replace them with a offside machine.

To make sure the officials get the offside rule correct.

I think its a smokescreen to do away with the linesman alltogether.

What company would sy no to reducing its employees wage by half?

So they have decided to employ the officials behind the goal line and they do absolutely nothing but now want to get rid of the linesman? Unbelievable.

The refs need all the help they can get...removing the lino’s will lead to more cheating, diving, etc, etc in the corners. 

Leave the game alone FFS, it wasn’t broken - most of these changes, including VAR, are ruining our beautiful game.

This is exactly what I say. I hate VAR, it's the biggest sport in the world for a reason so stop bloody changing it. Mistakes are part and parcel of the game

Lino’s do a lot more than offside. The ref couldn’t cope with everything on their own. 

Except some of the ones we have seen recently who can’t see things that are obvious from 10 yards away that the ref appears to have missed as well, but can make an offside decision from 5 yards behind the play (against Weimann usually)!

Since changing the name to “assistant referee”, some of them seem to do less than linesmen of old, and only seem to want to point out which side should get the throw in, make offside decisions, and occasionally make an indication of whether it was a goal kick or corner, but otherwise ignore foul play on the pitch.

Infantino is a penis.

I was just going to post something somewhat similar.

Why would they want to cut costs? Who pays/supplies the officials for each game?

It's such an idiotic idea…just leave it alone!! :ranting::redcard:

Part of becoming a Ref is to work your way up by Reffing at lower levels and running the line at higher levels until you are ready to progress.

One can only assume that there is not currently enough money in the professional game to accommodate the stratospheric wages that must be being paid to linesmen/women/people/persons,referees assistants or whatever the hell they are called this week.
