No, in fact no plays shouldn't be included in challenges.

I don't like the idea of challenging penalties, but I do think the refs should be trained to be more consistent with the calls...

You wouldn't, for example, challenge the personal foul penalty that was called on Strief in the kittens game?

No, we'd still get screwed and games would last 4 hours. I don't wanna give the refs any more power to decide a game than they already have.

I'd prefer to abolish instant replay altogether.

Kind of like that Graham incomplete pass that Sean threw the red flag on... I've watched the game 3-4 times and that was absolutely a catch, even Billick was saying it was a catch. Didn't matter, it stood as called

How would games last 4 hours?

I'm not saying give teams MORE challenges. A coach would still have to decide if it is worth challenging or not; the same rules would still apply.

Re: Question for the Forum

Officiating needs to be done by a group of people looking at screens of clips recorded by camera, I do believe penalties should be open for challenge.

I can kind of agree with this. If the NFL didn't have to make such a dramatic display of challenges - refs running to view under the booth(silly).

I just wanted a soapbox. Carry on.
