Pardon this stupid question from one who does not really understand football. Why can't they add 2 more linesmen near the penalty box to assist the refree in his decisions?
If a tennis match which often involves only 2 players and a couple of thousand spectators at most can have an umpire and countless linesmen, and in badminton they have one guy who job solely is to check the low service, why can't they just appoint 2 guys solely to check for fouls in the penalty box? If it is a problem of cost, then just have it in the finals. Just think of all the agonies and problems it can prevent.
