Do it!

FIFA president Sepp Blatter is apparently considering adding a second referee:

Blatter believes bringing in a second referee will help eradicate mistakes and reduce controversy.

Yes. That is exactly right. I cannot think of a single good reason not to do this. In fact, I think there should be three referees (in addition to the assistants).

Additional refs would also reduce the uproar over diving because players would have fewer incentives to dive. As is, because diving is effective, it is hard to blame players for working on their diving skills.
