British Firm Hawk-Eye Given Contract For Premier League's Goal-Line Technology
Published April 12, 2013
MIXED REVIEWS: The BBC reported Stoke City Chair Peter Coates also welcomed the decision, but "was wary about whether the use of technology should be extended to look at other areas, such as offside decisions." Coates: "I think we should be careful. The great thing about our game is that it should be simple, free-flowing and that it carries on. We don't want to become like a rugby game, so I'm probably in favor of simplicity and keeping a lot as it is." West Ham co-Owner David Gold was "open-minded on further use of the technology." Gold: "It's a start, who knows where it will take us? Fans will have a big say in this, and also TV will have a big say. We want to take the big, bad decisions out of football, and this kind of technology will do that" (BBC, 4/11).
