[NFL] NFL keeps replay, adds third challenge

Its horrible. They have video and they cant even get it right. I cannot tell you how many times the Ravens got screwed by the damn thing and I am not being bias because if you look at it, you will know im right.

I persoanlly think the NFL should have the booth review the play, not the officals on the field. Do that or toss the whole thing out.

i agree with you remote to an extent, yeah it screws a lot of would be calls... but on the other hand if you look at the flip side it can turn to be a favor for your team. :D

No no no...

Many times the ravens challenged plays where the ravens thought the call on the field was wrong. While seeing the replay, it showed the ravens should have gotten the call, however, even though the replay showed them being right, the play still stood..

Brian Billock has mad many statements after games about how bad the instant replay is.

ha! classic. "I'm not bias because I'm right". i've gotta remember that one.

fact is, you're no better off without the replay than you are with it.

If a bad call is made and it stands after the replay...oh well. same end result as having no replay at all.

If a bad call is made and it gets overturned during replay...that's a better end result than having no replay at all.

The calls obviously weren't bad enough if they didn't get overturned after a challenge.

or are the referee's just biased against the ravens?? or better yet, perhaps they're not biased because they're right...hmm.

I love the fact that the replay proves the refs can be wrong. I prefer my refs infallible, and any arguing to the contrary should resort in people sitting in the locker room, not "oh, let's all get together for tea and watch the play over again!"

i agree with you there. it's just a shame that reality has to get in the way of our dreams...

How about using one of those high-definition cameras that can detect whether a small part of the foot is touching the outside line so that the referee can rule that the person is out of bounds? I think that a small distance like that can decide the fate of the game?

Personally, I am happy that there is now a 3rd challenge but I would have preferred that a team got its 3rd challenge as a bonus for winning the first two. Normally, teams are NOT successful in winning both challenges even though Carolina proved it wrong. I feel that if you lose a challenge, it puts you on the guard and you would be more cautious abt using it the next time. IMHO, having a 3rd one gives cause for usage on a call that is not that important.

I think the NBA should institute a replay system.

Some ideas:

Only available in the fourth quarter

Each team gets two challenges, if you are correct you get charged with a twenty second timeout, if you are incorrect you are charged with a full time out.

The difficulty in adding replay to the NBA is that it's such a fast paced game, while the NFL is played at a somewhat slower pace.

However considering my basic ideas I think something could be worked out that would be best for everyone.

Why? "did he dunk it, or not?" "Gee, I dunno, but those 2 points are going to be crucial to the game, let's check it over" :blink:

No, it's not. :huh: Both NFL and NBA games are fast-paced but the NFL has breaks until the QB throws the ball. He starts the process. In NBA, anyone can start it and it goes on until one team scores.

Funny, the NFL had the same idea...

Congratulations on reading the article.

someone hasn't been watching the ncaa tourney this year.

many games have been decided by a single basket.

i don't watch the nba so i don't know if it happens as often there, but 2 points are 2 points.

Yeah, that's the way the games are supposed to be decided, by final points at the end, whether it be 2 apart or 20.

Look, if there's a questionable call then you're supposedly to play with it. What happened to the idea that you don't lose games because of bad calls? Football I can kind of see it, every down is extremely important. But baseball, basketball, etc?

3 Challenges is the best move they could have made. One stupid challenge in the first half, two good ones in the second half?
