Referee Euan Norris and assistant Raymond Whyte both failed to spot that a Leigh Griffiths free-kick had bounced at least a yard over the line when it crashed down off the crossbar in Sunday's Clydesdale Bank Premier League encounter at Easter Road, which ended 0-0.
Just eight days earlier across Edinburgh, the International FA Board had approved the use of goal-line technology on television and big screens, something which Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon called for the swift implementation of after his side were denied their goal.
FIFA has had tenders from four companies to install systems for the Confederations Cup and World Cup in Brazil, while the FA and Premier League are in talks over putting the technology into English top-flight clubs and Wembley.
But with the systems set to cost at least £100,000 for each stadium and FIFA still opposed to using television evidence, Scottish football is unlikely to follow suit.
The SFA's head of referee operations, John Fleming, told the governing body's website: "Firstly, as an association we are in favour of goal-line technology, and indeed have been heavily involved during the test process as a member of the IFAB," he said.
"However, as the general secretary of FIFA himself, Jerome Valcke, outlined in Edinburgh last week, the installation of each system will cost a six-figure sum on top of any maintenance costs.
"That would make it prohibitive, I would suggest, for the respective league bodies in Scotland, the Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League, to consider rolling out any time soon.
"In the meantime, we will continue to reinforce the training that we give to referees. In La Manga, we actually give referees simulations and they have a split second to decide whether the ball is on the line or over the line. It is an essential part of their training but they are only human.
"Of course goal-line technology would help, and we have four companies - Goal Ref, Hawkeye, Goal Control and Cairos - who have obtained a licence but would Scottish clubs rather invest in this technology at a premium to the detriment of youth investment? I don't think so in the current climate."
