Chip soccer shocker will let refs photo fouls

They'll wear it next to their whistle

Sources close to Cadence US said today that one of its OEMs will release a piece of clever technology that will allow soccer referees to view the last 30 seconds of an incident. According to the source in Cadence US, that will make it easier for fouls or penalties declared by referees to be thought over. Refs will have a full 30 seconds to think about things before the crowd turns nasty. The video technology will hang on a string around a referee's or umpire's neck, and is expected to change the gladiatorial nature of such events. Cadence UK refused to comment on the reports. ®
