    Good. When will baseball join the 20th century and institute a replay rule?

      don't add a 3rd challenge, just don't lose one when you're right. In essence, sometimes a coach wastes a challenge on a ref's ineptitude. Remember the "fumble" in the Bucs Raiders SB?

        There would be a challenge every drive for "spotting" the ball.

        You have to draw a line.

        Martz challenges for three inches of the missed spot of ball in the first quarter of a home game on first down.

          I don't think they should be allowed to challenge the spot of the ball.

            Rams got fucked last year vs Carolina.

            Guy never got back to line of scrimmage on 4th down, yet the refs gave him a yard.

              When the refs can see the line of scrimmage or the yellow first down marker and a player doesnt reach those lines, it is not subjective.

              The precise spot of the ball when not challenged as a first down, but as regular spot, that is nuts and is a dumb risk.

              Most often, they lose the challenge anyway. Its a waste.

                I'd like to do away with the inadvertant or quick whistle.

                If the replay shows a clear fumble, it should not be stopped just because a refree suffers from premature whistlelation.

                  I just think that it's something that will always be questioned, and therefore shouldn't be reviewed.

                  It would be like having instant replays on a strike call to see if it caught the corner of the plate.

                      I think they should call the game as they see it.

                      Then, if the officials in the booth see its a fumble, call down and review it.

                      Fumbles are the most bullshit missed calls ever.

                      Rams got fucked in game one in NY last year, with Tiki on his own 3 yard line. They took away a sure 7 pts from us there.

                        I don't think there are ever 7 sure points with Bulger at QB and MM at the headphones.
