Just caught this video clip of John Carver being interviewed about the game technology TFC is first in the league to get their hands on....MLSE dropped a few bux for this I am sure.

Good clip of the national team there too.

I remember this was mentioned many months ago when Carver was first introduced to the team.
Then I never heard anything about it... good to see it has been put into place.
I also remember it costing a lot of money... like 100 G's or something.

Neat! I saw this kind of stuff watching broadcasts in Europe where they have distance traveled, passes completed, accuracy, etc... I always wondered how they did that. Good to see! Carver just keeps paying off!

I am enjoying the KM's ran on the Euros and passes completed.

I wonder how many KM per game Cunny runs...1, maybe 2? :p

Wonder how they track the running stats. Do you think the players all have sensors in their shoes?

That's peanuts to MLSE.

The Leafs have similar programs to this.

I'm just surprised other MLS teams don't have it. I mean Carver makes it sound like MLS teams are idiots for not having it. Luton Town had it for crying out loud!

KM's now you pushing it man.Maybe few hundreds per game,it is difficult to run with your hands on the hips all the time.

I'm surprised too that other MLS teams don't have it.

America is the land of gadgets and if you've ever seen what goes on behind the scenes in the NFL or NCAA, you'll know how much of this stuff they already use...just not for "sacker"

I'm surprised American soccer broadcasts don't have blue streaks behind the ball for passes and red streaks for shots to make it easier to follow the soccer ball. :)

Prozone is used by a few NCAA programs and the USSF

It's also been on display at the last couple of NSCAA conventions

Im honestly not surprised the rest of MLS dont have it.

Most other teams are run very amateurish.

I get the same feeling myself. I was comapring the TFC TV show with the shows of the other clubs and they are childs play compared to our show. I know that doens't affect the play on the field, but it builds the brand and garnishs more recongition for our TFC.

Even Ibee Ibrahim says in the latest TFC TV episode that it feels more professional in Toronto:D

MLSinToronto.......can you ask Carver to use this software to show the ref that Dichio was not offside?

Actually, watching the highlights shows that Dichio was offside, something that was not obvious to me in the south end.

Peter Schmeicheal fucked with the system when it first came out. I remember reading somewhere that he would job laps in the 18 yard box to accumulate KM's. He ended up have the longest distance run than any other player on the field.

This technology is pretty cool but in all fairness the Smartboard can't cost that much as my high school has at least 4 of them the expensive part is probably the software and the fact that they have to "send stuff to England" which tells me that they have to subscribe or something
