WHAT THEY SAID: "Eliminate it completely. I don't mind the Goal Line Technology at all, I think it's great in my opinion but other than that I know its one of those things where if it goes for you, you love it. If it's against you, you hate it. But, just, overall as a fan, I just think we're better off without it." said the American [via Men In Blazers].
