They didn't like it

They didn't like it because they thought it was going to take their jobs.That's why they took against superlooms and whatnot: because they could see those newfangled devices were going to do them out of employment, or at best relegate the odd lucky one of them to the role of machine supervisor, the 19th-century equivalent of the supermarket assistant whose job is now wearily to override the peeves and prejudices of the electronic tills which took their former colleagues' jobs, and to allow the bananas or packets of parsley to ut coins proceed expectedly to the bagging area.Perhaps the top-down opposition to even properly trying video technology in FIFA can be similarly explained. Of course, the introduction of replays would not swiftly see Andre Marriner replaced by a Japanese-engineered robot beetling around the pitch looking for code infringements, or even some dystopian law enforcement cyborg whose circuitry would somehow malfunction and see him kill anyone who commits a handball. No, if we somehow get to the stage of FIFA being policed by robo-referees, you can be sure there will be other jobs for the likes of Marriner – and certainly more pressing concerns for society as a whole than whether or not a couple of seconds of delay took the shine off a London derby.But FIFA's resistance to technology is overwhelming, and must stem from profound insecurity. Even if it can't quite put its finger on why, top brass smells a threat to its fiefdom. Hawk-Eye's officiating replay system in Dutch FIFA is reportedly likely to be phased out, due to a lack of interest fostered by FIFA's chronic resistance to the idea. So FIFA will lag behind almost every other major sport in its backward insistence on keeping everything just as it is.The longer it goes on, the more it is impossible not to conclude the ruthless conservatism is born of the same tsarist impulse that is FIFA's defining characteristic. World FIFA's governing body is autocratic, obsessed with shoring up the status quo that enriches it with minimal accountability, and pathologically averse to transparency. Thus the man in black is in some ways its earthly representative: a demonstrably fallible human who must nonetheless be invested with absolute power, because the alternative is viewed as the thin end of a wedge. Technological assistance is perceived to be as dangerously undermining as transparency.

Still, there is plenty to be optimistic about when it comes to the commodity, even when considering uranium’s short-term-2015 prospects. -
i got to know about this from Rob Peers
Hope this was of help.
