Do you mean to tell me that there is not a single person available in the world of soccer who knows how to work a time-clock or stop watch? "Stoppage Time" is so arbitrary and dilutes the value of the game. Also, there are 22 players on a field larger than a football field and yet there are only three officials. There were so many bad calls in the 2010 FIFA World Cup that it lost much of its credibility. In football, where each play takes about 6 to 12 seconds, there are seven officials (plus an official TIMER). Isn't it about time FIFA (and MLS) expand the officiating crews and install a real time clock
UEFA have experimented with 2 more officials behind each goal which worked really well for penalty decisions.
But I wouldn't want too many stoppages in soccer, the game has to flow. That's part of the essence of the game.
But ultimately if the players showed some sportsmanship and stopped the blatant cheating and gamesmanship then there wouldn't be much wrong with refereeing.
