Hodgson said: "It's hard enough to be a referee anyway with all of the things that go on in the game of football and all of the decisions that you have to make in a split second, if afterwards, people are going to confront you with loads of things on video that happened in the game that you may or may not have seen.
"It's trial by video evidence isn't it?
"It just opens up the door for an endless stream really.
"There's no doubt it's going to make the refereeing job harder and harder, and it's going to make the job of the assessors more and more powerful.
"It will raise to some extent questions, sometimes, about delegates and assessors, such as are they local people seeing things with local eyes, or are they as neutral as we hope the referees will be?"
