    The ref can be convinced of something and be wrong.

    I can't believe we're still having the "picture at an angle with skewed perspective looks like it's over the line" discussion. Did some of you actually go to school?

    A referee doesn't have to be 100% sure to give a decision. Otherwise they'd spend the whole game not blowing the whistle execpt for throw ins and goal kicks etc.

    I'd say they'd use a more of a "balance of probabilities" type test like in a civil court.
