WAS IT A GOAL OR NOT?

Grimsby v Mansfield, 18 August 2006

73 minutes gone.
Grimsby are awarded a goal to rob the Stags of two points. But does it cross the line?

These are the closest stills I can get from the DVD, showing the ball as it hits the turf. Quite clearly the ball hits the middle of the line; indeed it's nowhere near being across the line.

However, five months ago to the day, the Stags were on the receiving end of a fortunate goalline decision against Northampton and then later against Oxford, though the Grimsby incident is more clearcut.
