I dont understand why the league is so slow to embrace technology that only helps to enhance the game. Instant replay has been so instrumental in making sure the right decision is made by refs, but it took the league eons to implement it (and they just made it a permanent change). Now, we have the issue about not having the ability to communicate with defensive players (which has led to the signalgate mess). The offense has radio communication. Why not the defense? How did only 22 owners vote for this? Technology is there to improve the game and those that embrace it have only benefited from it. Reading "Patriots Reign", I have no doubt that part of the Pats success this decade has to do with the ability to use sophisticated technology to break down games. Now, PFT is quoting sources that the Pats are mic'ing Dlinemen to capture audibles and line calls to inform their half time adjustments. I say, big deal. More power to them. These antiquated owners, GMs and coaches need to get their heads out of their asses.
