It really is the only critical job of the linesman. Out of bounds is prett

easy and rarely that big a deal even if missed. I guess over the endline is sometimes critical, but again relatively easy if in position. Most of the fouls that a linesman flags are called by the ref anyway.

If we add video to help the linesman do his one really critical job, seems the position is almost unnecessary.

Heck, if the linesman knows a goal will be called back if the video shows the player was off, why even call the offsides? Just let the play go and wait for the video to take the goal back.
