FOOTBALL: The A-League will be trialling a video referee, who will look at decisions on a monitor near the touchline, in round 25.
For me it cannot come soon enough after another weekend of exciting football was almost ruined by refereeing decisions.
I am not going to start slamming officials because I know refereeing is not an easy job, particularly at the highest level in this country when there are so many TV cameras with different angles and replays allowing pundits to question every decision.
But that is exactly why this system needs to come in and quickly.
I don't even think there is any need for a trial because quite clearly referees sometimes need a helping hand.
I am not advocating that referees go to the TV replay for every decision they make because that would be farcical and clearly slow the game down too much.
But for potentially game-changing decisions like the two we have seen this weekend, why shouldn't the man in the middle seek a little clarification?
Everyone who watched the Sydney derby on Saturday night clearly saw the ball hit the hand of Sydney FC defender Michael Zullo.
Everyone, that is, except the two men that counted - referee Peter Green and his assistant.
The officials did not even point for a corner when the ball quite clearly cannoned off Zullo.
If they had TV replays and an assistant on the sidelines then I have no doubt that the right decision would have been made and, more importantly, it would not have taken long to get to that decision.
Instead we get Wanderers coach Tony Popovic getting understandably upset because the non-decision could have cost his team all three points.
"I'm getting sick of talking about it - it was a penalty and it doesn't get clearer than that,” Popovic said of Zullo's handball.
"Teams are getting affected every week (by refereeing decisions). It's a tight game, a derby, and that changes the game.
"Unfortunately we're seeing far too much of it and it's happening to us quite regularly.”
Popovic might even get a fine for his comments but it could have all been avoided with the help of TV replays.
A video assistant would also have helped to clear up the incident that ended up with Besart Berisha getting sent off in the Melbourne Victory's 3-2 defeat of the Brisbane Roar on Friday night.
I have never been a fan of Berisha due to some of his on-field antics, but quite clearly he was wronged on this occasion with even Roar defender Luke DeVere, who the Albanian was alleged to have elbowed, saying there was nothing in it.
Once again a quick look at the replay would have shown officials the hand to the face was an accident and they could have moved on.
