Will this move result in better decision making?

At teh moment each assistant covers one half of the field from one line. A better idea would be to have the extra 2 assistans run on the other side of the field so that each assistant covers a quarter of the field but has input into decisions all over the park should they see something happen.I am all in favour of letting humans control the games. If we don't stop the constant attacks and criticism on refs and their assistants in situation where it is not warranted we will end up with no-one willing to become referees.Hands up anyone who can claim not have made a mistake in their daily work. As I thought. Very few of us.People make mistakes and we have to live with that.

It's ridiculous. We need less officials and more TV technology. Get rid of all the assistant referees except one, who monitors the game on TV, with replays. He then makes all the decisions and relays them to the official on the field, who takes the relavant action.
I think its a good idea, wont say it will work but its worth a shot, I agree with most of what platini says, and I also want to keep the game human
This does not remove errors. In GAA there are TWO officials behind EACH goal and they still get decisions wrong.
I say have at least additional 22 officials, one to watch each player. Maybe 44, so that each official can have one other official to check on them. Hang on, make that 66, so we can get majority decision making from each group of 3. It may help reduce unemployment.
whoever thought this idea up is a plat, ini!

The Linesmen and these extra afficials are to help the ref though. The ref has the overiding decision so he can take into account what the linesman/extra offical says before making his descision.

When, oh when will our beautiful game move into the 21st century?Almost every other sport has!!!!
Just two more people around to make mistakes. Football uses technology to spot foul play like elbowing retrospectively so why won't it do so for goals, offsides and penalty decisions as well. Ludicrous!
This is NONSENSE - bring in TV evidence on the goal-line only and let officials do the rest as they do now. <doh> Overkill with 5 officials and too much TV will slow it all down. <wah>
