Well, today in class our English Teacher told us to make a Debate about Sports, and my group took this Topic. The idea of this debate is to see what people think of a Referee being able to use devices that show the Replay in the middle or the game, or just punish the player without seeing the replay. In my opinion this is not a good idea because it takes more time to see the Replay and also the Referee if he is qualified as a Referee is because he knows what he's doing.

Actually I think refs should be able to use replays as they ensure maximum fairness. They can also be used to show to the players that the ref made a good choice and therefore make the ref less hated. No one should have to put up with people saying they are blind all the time.

As you say, it can be effective to prove if the Ref. made a good choice, but as you say people say: "the ref is blind", that will probably happen if a Replay Device is incorporated, because he can make a bad choice and get criticized, or make a good one, but people will say: "The device is hacked, it doesn't works!", and it will just create a waste of time and more fight for the decisions the Referee makes.

But a device like that will be unbiased and therefore will be a good idea as the players can't complain about it being rigged.

Yeah, maybe putting 5 rounds on this wasn't a good idea.
