Testing of instant replay means soccer closer to entering 21st century

Last week, FIFA and IFAB announced that a number of leagues in the United States, Germany and Brazil, among others, would be the first to test out a new instant replay system beginning in 2017 with the goal to implement it fully shortly there after. Once that implementation is complete, soccer will finally be a 21st century sport.

NCAA has to institute instant replay in volleyball

This season, the NCAA tried out instant replay in the Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC conferences, but the system wasn't in place for arguably the biggest call of the season — you know, the one that has the power to continue a dream run or bring a season to an end. It will be next year at the earliest before that system, which is only uses television angles, is implemented. And it all comes too late for the Gators.

MLS testing instant replay can only mean good things

Soccer is the last of the major sports to implement instant replay. Yes, soccer doesn't have the natural stops in play to check on whether a play was called correctly or not, but in the 21st century it's a crime to not use technology to get calls right. I mean, it took until just last year for FIFA and the Premiere League to use goal-line technology, something long over due, and it's been a smashing success with its efficiency and accuracy. But there is hope beyond the horizon.
