I can think of a lot of old rules I'd like to see back.

I dont like replay. Am I the only one? Am I crazy?
I like replay when used very little during a game. Quit slowing the game down. Now they replay every touchdown? Ridiculous.

So much for tempo.

I must respectfully disagree on your point of checking the replay every score. In the end, it's about getting it right. As far as I know, the coaches are still limited to two red flags; that should be enough.

naaa... we lived 100 years without replay...

the purpose of replay was to prevent the game changing referee goof, a-la- Mike Renfro in the 79 AFC Championship.

And why do they have to run across the field and go into the peep-show? Can they not get TV upstairs? Why do they have to look over and over again. If once in slow motion doesnt solve the question, then its not obvious-- how did you expect the ref to get it in fast motion?

One red flag per game. and you got 30 seconds. for that one call you would otherwise cry all monday morning about.. thats what it should be.

the rest of it, call it on the field and accept the call, quit whining, and call the next play.

I could be full O' crap...

In today's game you have to have replay because of the advances in TV technology. The media would beat to death bad calls all week between games also. Can you imagine what would happen to an officiating crew without replay reversals after they show the play on the stadium screen. Remember the bottle incident in Cleveland? That's why we can't buy beer after the 3rd quarter. I agree it takes too long and it could be done a lot faster up in the booth but with anything that involves a union you can't take away control from the man on the ground.

...and they will get to the place where the reviews are done by the time the celebration is over. No need for 6 different angles when a guy scampers in from the 17 untouched.

I liked the Raiders as a kid..........the Bad Boy attitude was compelling.
