Far East interest?

Recommended Posts

Hawkeye being out of action might have had more of a bearing on whether the match could have continued.

What about the hawkeye going down (according to Farke)? We probably couldn't have carried on if it was kaput. And it's unlikely that someone accidentally switched it off in addition to accidentally switching off the floodlight, unless it's on the same switch (unlikely?).

The question with Hawkeye, as I understand it from the post-match interviews and comments, was not whether it too had "gone down" but whether there was still sufficient light for it to operate reliably. Similar point was made about the cameras covering the match (not for broadcasting purposes, presumably, but for the recordings that are used officially e.g. by governing bodies and security monitoring etc.). It was quickly established that there was no problem in either case, but by then the fuse had been replaced and the floodlight "warm up" period had started.

Thanks for shedding some light on events.

LOL. What you can see from 5800 miles away is often clearer than when viewed from the stands at Carrow Road 😉
