Line Calls - There's A Good Chance You Were Wrong
Hard as we may want to think otherwise there really are only two elements that apply to line calls:
  1. Every ball is either in or out.
  2. Every line call is a guess.
Given the imprecise nature of our visual tools researchers predicted that due to a variety of factors there “should be a significant perceptual bias, so that balls that bounced on the line would be called “out” when they should have been called “in”.
 
Using Hawk-Eye 3D Imaging technology the data obtained confirmed the researchers’ prediction. Of the 83 points in which the referee made an error, 70 of the calls were in the predicted direction, i.e. "the position of the ball was misperceived to be shifted in the direction of motion, so that the referees judged them to be out of play when in fact they had bounced on the line.”
 
Be generous.

Next Level Performance. Building a solid, reliable, portable game requires a commitment to continuous learning, drilling, and practicing. That game is out there waiting for you...so let's get started.
