I think they are tracking vests ie so pattern analysis and all manner of info can be gathered by their teams

I recall Neil Ruddock wearing one. I believe it was to hold his tits up.

On the average, though, for a car to be considered a "Classic Car" it must be at least 25 years old, and 50 years old for it to be considered an "Antique Car". However, some states consider anything made after the end of the Forties a Classic, and anything from 1949 back to be an Antique.

How was O.j Simpson found not guilty of murder?

Quite amazing, when you consider the forensic evidence, the blood trail from the crime scene to his house.

Which makes me wonder why they can't be used to determine whether a player is offside or not.

The glove thing was a clever play by his lawyer. Insisting he wore a latex glove first before trying it on was very smart, as was his dramatic over performance when he put it on in court.

Allegedly he stopped taking his arthritis medication, around the time of the trial, which caused his hands to swell.

I'd imagine he'd been spinning his arms for hours beforehand to fill them with blood, heating them up on a radiator, and bloating himself with salty junk food and gallons of pop. The murderous c**t.

They are GPS monitors, they can determine the speeds you've reached, the distance you've run, sprinting/walking periods...they can't adjudge whether or not a body part of which you can score a goal (i.e your foot or head) are behind the last defender when the ball is played. Impossible.

No one would be surprised?
