NHL setting the pace once again

Sure, everybody has their pet complaint about the NHL, whether it be insufficient suspensions for violent acts, marketing failures, possible franchise moves, etc. But let's give credit to the league when it is due. An article in today's IOL out of South Africa notes that FIFA, the international governing body for soccer, is looking at NHL-style video review for goal validation. The plan is to have something in place for the 2007 Club World Cup in Tokyo.

While sometimes the review process can longer than some would like, you have to admit that video review usually gets things right and has been a positive addition to the sport, and now, is being recognized for that success.
