Abstract

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is over and was in most senses a success. However, the reality is that from the perspective of fairness, the 2014 World Cup was off to a remarkably bad start. Like many major football events in the past, this World Cup was plagued by controversial refereeing. In this article, I will speculate about the role that technology may play in enhancing the great game of football. I will also draw some comparison between the rules of this sport and the rules of law. This will be done mainly from a legal philosophical perspective.
