    Personally thought it ruined the rhythm of the game, can see the necessity of it.. but the reviews seemed lengthy.

    The new rule (Rule 15, Section 9) reads this way: "Replay official will initiate review of all scoring plays throughout the game. The Replay official cannot initiate a review for a team, and a team is prevented from challenging a play, if that team commits a foul that prevents the next snap."


    Reiss is claiming that it is only on close plays, did not stay up for the end of the third and fourth quarters, he said the latter TD's were not reviewed.. early tee time.

    Criqui and Cross indicated that all TD's would be reviewed.. but take that with a grain of salt.

    Stupid rule. Why can't they have a guy in the booth review it real quick and if there's any question buzz down. No reason for the referee to run over to the booth everytime.

    It seemed pretty clumsy and was pretty annoying to boot.

    Personally, I'll use the time to go get another drink, use the washroom, etc, etc...

    I got it wrong last night. There is a replay official in the press box (or wherever they sit) who review each TD. If he/she feels that it is questionable, he/she will instruct the ref to do a booth review.

    That is basically how it is supposed to work.

    So a coach can still challenge a score if the booth doesn't think it was close enough? I can see some controversy brewing.

    So what they did was wrong.. it is all done from afar?? If so that is more palatible than destroying the rhythm of the game last night.

    That was dumb, Gil and Gino said it was on all TD's and were railing about how clumsy and slow it was. Preseason is to work the kinks out so hopefully by game 1 its smoother.

    I believe a coach can only challenge a TD if it is not called. If it is called the only one who can question it (and is instructed to if it looks at all to be) is the replay official. Theoretically that should save coaches use of a challenge on most scoring plays.

    Both of those early calls merited a second look. The new rule saved the opposing HC a wasted challenge.

    Criqui and Cross said the same thing.. that is where the confusion came in.

    They should change the replay system all together. It takes way too long to review a play with the ref walking over to the tv set, reviewing it a billion times, etc.

    They should look at the CFL system. Refs do not review the play. There is a team of officials in a offsite location that review coaches challenges and relay the result down to the ref. Saves a bunch of time and you could have a set of eyes looking at the play in a short period of time.

    So I guess we'll have to wait and see how the rule stands after the Colts play a game. Because, you know, if Peyton (whenever he gets back on the field) scores a TD or two and the league decides to challenge them, well, that team knows how to have rules changed. ...

    Yeah, then the ref has to feel like an a--hole being reversed. I like the idea of strong on-field officials, meaning they have final say over the game - it helps them maintain control.

    Don't like it, just another reason to add more commercials and drag the game out.

    Remember that they have rules about how many commercials are allowed, they can only go to commercial break 5 times each quarter (though they can roll unused breaks into later quarters, and can borrow against future quarters). This is why sometimes, towards the end of the game, they'll show the ref under the hood and the coaches just standing there on split screen.

    That's cool, at least we've gone from you having a reason to you just not liking it.

    I dont see how its any different than reversing their own call. If anything, it ensures an impartial review of a call, not a review by the guy who made the bad call in the first place.
