30 Day Challenge Day - 17: Pressure on FIFA

I've got a lot on my mind today so I am going to keep this short.

A new article on Yahoo is showing that FIFA, one of the governing bodies of international soccer, is starting to change it's mind about instant replay.
With a whole multitude of major blown calls in this year's World Cup already, FIFA is taking a new stance on it's officiating system and replay. The calls in question have occured against a whole range of nations, so no real "bias" can be used as explanation. Increased international pressure is prompting the new outlook.

This is something I would like to see done in major league baseball in the face of recent issues, and issues with umpiring in past years.

Here's a link to the article:
