Rage against the machine, Platini edition

Michel Platini doesn't like the idea of inviting technology into sports. He strongly opposes goal-line technology, as, according to him, it is too expensive.

He said it's cheaper to have referees with "good glasses" standing close to the goal-line. Platini surely advocates the idea of replacing all traffic lights with policemen. Technology too expensive? Well, the first time human civilisation invented television, telephone, and what not, people thought they were too expensive. Or of course, the standard fallacy: technology leaves people unemployed. Who invents technology?

I guess Luddism never dies.
