MLS COMMISH GARBER FAVORS IMPLEMENTING GOAL-LINE TECHNOLOGY
It sounds like MLS commissioner Don Garber likes the idea of using his league as a guinea pig for the sport on a global scale.
Garber said Thursday while speaking to the Associated Press Sports Editors that he'd be OK with implementing goal-line technology as soon as possible, should it pass through FIFA's rules-making body later this summer.
Here's how it would work: A ball-tracking system would coincide with a magnetic field that accompanies a special ball, which would send a signal to the referee less than a second after the ball crosses the goal line.
The rules board meets July 2.
Said Garber: "We're interested in being a test league and we hope that we could achieve that. I would be open to whatever it is that could be done to ensure that we have goal-line technology."
So what do you think? Should MLS be the first league to test out this stuff?
