A picture please with a sniper

from The Sofa is always so easy to judge. Also last Sunday, at the "Gate" between Lugano and Geneva, there were the votes: a Clear erroneous decision, a clear goal!

But if it goes in the ice hockey if you have questions Tor/Non-Tor of a Millimeter, is seldom clear.

Or everything is clear?

Or here?

. Nothing is clear.

So, don't get us wrong: of Course there are clear goals. This is a clear goal, since all are agreed on this:

but when It comes to the controversial cases. Those that need to be evaluated by the arbitrators by means of video images. This last Sunday was the most controversial (Non-)goal of the season: Servettes (alleged?) Hit in Lugano in the final minute, when able 3:3:

And so saw the still image from the referee the crucial Moment, when the city of Lugano Topskorer Grégory Hofmann to save quotes:

to have The rear red line is a help for the referees in such controversial situations, a point of reference. The distance to the front of the red goal line is exactly as large as the Puck is wide. The Puck touches the back line only to be thin, means that: The disc is in there, so: goal!

It is, therefore, on the basis of these pictures is more likely that Geneva shot here, a goal as Hofmann timely intervention. And yet the referee made the right decision to give the goal.

Because the video images need to prove the opposite of the decision of the referee on the ice to be 100 percent (in this case, "no goal!").

However, as the Referees should be on the basis of this image a hundred percent sure? The camera is behind the plexiglass and is filming through the narrow meshes of the goal net. Where the edge of the goal line runs, is to accurately detect as little clearly as the place where on the image the black insulating tape of the Stock ends and where the black Puck begins.

is not Really sharp in the image.

The thing with the Offsides

A similar Problem with the sharpness of the images there are on a regular basis at the Coaches Challenges. The trainers have a suspected Offside in front of a goal, is a must-see once per game, the scene of the line check judges once again on the Video. The picture quality is lousy in a similar way. This example here from the game Biel - Davos made this season, for the most headlines:

Here is to seriously recognize the Impartial, whether or not an Offside, as if A) the Puck (Where exactly is he even in this pixel salad?) on the floor of the player in Yellow in the bottom right already, the blue line has crossed and whether B) the player has at the very top of his rear foot in the air, or the line touches. Here is an Offside is, with great probability, nevertheless, the Refs were not able to prove this, and decided, probably incorrectly.

This often happens when Coaches Challenges: The images are just too sharp little, give too little information for a proper decision of the referees and linesmen.

impact on the bar fight

Both error consequences: In case 2 shortened Davos because of the Decision to 1:2 and won at the end of 7:2. More serious was the case in Lugano: there is A goal to the 4:3 would have given a few seconds before the end of the Genfern the victory they had in the narrow line the fight is now two points more and Lugano (later winner in the penalty shootout), two less.

The things cost shut

you Can make the nothing? But, you could. With a HD camera in the gate, which delivers much better images than those behind the plexiglass. And for the Offsides, there would be the "blue-lines-camera", in leagues such as NHL or KHL. This looks for example like this:

Only, the Hi-Tech things cost. In Switzerland only used in the Playoff Final, at least the In-goal camera. To be able to in a full round of each NL game on these images to draw, need it according to the twelve piece.

You will concerning goal-camera Changes after the season, "check," it was said recently in the "view" on the part of the League. The Offside-camera will, however, give it: "The question is always whether the effort is worth it in relation to possible improvements", the League Director Denis Vaucher quotes.

Motivated by a spirit of optimism sounds different ... (
