Surely the time has come to agree that the introduction of technology into sporting decisions has been a failure.
It came from a good place - the need to get the right decision all the time - but IMO it has dismally failed in that goal.
DRS in cricket is a disaster, and that has clearly been demonstrated the last few days. No wonder the Indians hate it. The introduction of the VAR at the World Cup wasn’t much better. And that’s not to say anything of the unmitigated disaster that is the AFL score review system, with or without a dedicated ‘bunker’.
Our search to always have the right decision and avoid controversy hasn’t given us any more certainty and had only succeeded in creating more controversy.
If it was me - I would junk all of it, go back to the human umpire, and respect the decision that’s made - accepting that there will be errors, but that those errors are part of the game.
I have a strong memory of my primary school PE teacher and her opinion of umpires. She used to say “the umpires are always right, even when they’re wrong”.
