So far, bots have been used as soccer commentators, measuring the velocity of kicks and position of the ball. http://www.technologyreview.com/read_article.aspx?id=17006&ch=infotech If this technology is successful in this girly mon sport, the next step is drafting bots as commentators and refs in the NFL. No more senile confusion from Gil and Gino or inanities from Madden but Spocklike analysis of every play with unerring positioning of the football after every down. Gone would be the indeterminate positioning of the ball after each down or confusion of breaking the plane of the goal line. We'll see... "Pennington actually threw the ball faster than a girl on that last INT" "TD Patriots! Ball was one micron over the goal line marker." "Manning gets yet another delay of game penalty, his 43rd"
