Since Hawkeye was introduced in tennis, I've always been intrigued that they never show a super slow motion replay of line calls to compare Hawkeye's prediction and the actual position of the ball. It seems as though in tennis they don't want to undermine the technology, but in football, refereeing decisions are constantly being questioned by slow motion replays.In which case, the system needs reviewing. We’ve always assumed it was 100% correct. They have not explained what was unique about this one (it was not an abnormally crowded goal area for this type of decision). Until they do, can we trust the computer-generated images which make the decisions?
It does seem that it's ok to question refereeing decisions but technological decisions can't be questioned - which is probably what happened in the Villa case ( even if it was obviously wrong).
