Adding More Ass’t Refs: Almost a Done Deal?

FIFA recently put out a press release that:

The Technical Sub-Committee of the International Football Association Board (IFAB) will meet on Wednesday, 21 July 2010 in Cardiff (Wales). The only point on the agenda will be the review and eventual approval of the requests made by various confederations and member associations of FIFA to implement the experiments with two additional assistant referees for competitions of the 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 seasons.

It certainly sounds like the “review” process is a mere formality and the conclusion is foregone.  I’d insert a snide remark about the similarity that bears to some matches, but if FIFA’s going to improve the system I’d prefer to just embrace it.
