FIFA rejects referee changes at World Cup

By

In the aftermath of Thierry Henry's infamous handball, soccer fans across the globe have come to expect a change in FIFA's officiating, whether it be the use of video technology or additional referees.

It appears neither will be implemented at the World Cup.

FIFA's executive committee has decided not to introduce any referee changes at the 2010 World Cup, stating that the tournament is too soon. FIFA president Sepp Blatter said there are plans to further discuss the additional referee concept, which is currently being used in the Europa League, and the use of technology at a later date.

What do you think about FIFA's decision? Is the executive committee making a mistake? Should South Africa 2010 have additional referees and video replay?
