Decision Review System in Football

This petition had 11 supporters

This is regarding football matches getting affected due to bad referring or some wrong decisions taken by match referees, There should be a system where caption of each team can ask for review of decision like Decision Review System(DRS) in Cricket. Each team can have limited number of reviews like 2 per match and 1 extra for extra time. The match referee on being asked for DRS will refer to an extra official who will be seeing the match and the officail will review the decision in his best professional capacity.
By introducing such kind of system, the integrity and transparency of football will improve and spirit of football will remain intact.
Referees are human and nobody can be perfect in every decision and some wrong decision can be given, what can be done is to limit those miskates or wrong decisions
Also there would be a check on the quality of referring, if a referee makes too many wrong decisions and his decision are reviewed most of the time then such referee can be given more training or can be demoted, basically referees can be judged on their performance.
DRS being used in cricket is very helpful and football governing bodies like FIFA or UEFA can take some notes from it for using such kind of system in football.
