I like the idea but games would take 5 hours to finish, why does the NFL feel like they have to micro manage every part of the game now

Yep. 3rd and 6 is really not a good time to give away a 1st down based on a bad call.

What we "need" is to penalize the stoopid refs for making the wrong calls, which sometimes totally change the outcome of the game! I have no idea what they get paid, but how about 1/4 of their paycheck for each bad (wrong) call!?!

All good ideas .... but this is a game played by humanoids .... who make mistakes .... in the end and typically, the calls even out. Can you honestly say we did not benefit on the Sproles TD? Besides .... if they actually do make a change, we would have less to banter about.

We did, and if the humanoids could figure out how to use walkie talkies it would have been reviewed.

I know the refs have a league-sponsored rating system, but I'm not sure how they are rewarded or punished for good or bad officiating. In their defense it is a fast game and the league is pushing them to call EVERY thing.

Gotta be some way to correct obvious mistakes, but if they can't use a walkie talkie then I'm not really sure what can be done.

I know everyone else is perfect out there, especially, for example, you musicians when there is that note that just ... errrr.. that reminds me.... can you throw a flag when a musician plays a bad note? ...in all seriousness, it's a game where sheet happens!



more corroboration ...

What we really really need is for the refs to bring their friggin glasses to the game. Oh, and if it's not too much trouble - try putting them on! What gets me is there are 3 or 4 on the field; I don't know how many in the booth and they still get it wrong. Shouldn't somebody somewhere have questioned it? It seems to me that the people in the booth should be able to over ride the decision on the field whenever its friggin obvious. What good does it do us now? I'm just glad that we won and that decision didn't interfere with the win. **!!!**??!!
