Technology in Sports

By: Chris Hampton

I chose this article because technology is a very important tool in sports today but it hasn’t always been that way. It has drastically improved the enforcement of rules in multiple sports. Like in football instant replay has helped change the outcome of games and in tennis the ball tracking technology has provided a useful tool of deciding if the ball was out of bounds or not. Essentially with technology it has substantially lessened the chance for human error to effect the game negatively. The only down side that has really been able to be called out is that it slows down the game sometimes. This is true but it is to help the overall game and therefor technology is a very important tool that has improved  and continues to improve sports.
