Meh everyones entitles to an opinion, just like Aliens, Illuminati and every other "Conspiracy" some people will go to their graves refusing to even acknowledge its possible.

This rule is for the league to (only) intervene in the most dire circumstances (whether booth review or coach challenge).

 

What is considered dire circumstances and to whom? Teams are losing games [example: Chiefs Sunday]. Is that not considered dire? There are several more than just this one that have happened this year already. I think the whole situation has become dire,

 

A blatant mugging {uncalled}, very much like the one in the Rams/Saints game last year...

 

That's what this rule is for... not fixing on field officials DPI / OPI calls.

I don't agree with that.  This will only happen if you continually have mistakes made, which I don't think happens.  Most plays don't have something controversial in them.  On a typical 3 yard run, you don't have to worry about things like offside, pass interference, unnecessary roughness, etc. I don't think the time factor would be that significant if applied.  But even if that is the case, you could allow everything to be reviewable in the final 2 mins of each half, for example.  There are ways around it.  Not to mention that there are multiple ways for the NFL to shorten games if they think this would be that big of a deal

 

I think the more you have backup officials (booth / replay), the more on field officials will divert calls to them.

I was wondering why we still have refs trying to run around the field Trying to keep up with the most elite athletes?  ...when their line of sight often gets disrupted. Why not have the same number of refs (with the same assigned responsibilities as now) in a booth watching the players on computer screens to decide when penalty flags are indicated?  Could leave one on the field to place the ball based on what the line judge radios to him.  This might actually speed up the game versus having things reviewed after the fact.  I know it’s not perfect, but no one seems to believe that the current system is near perfect either. 

 

Interesting, except HD cameras and operators are expensive. Can't have every player  assigned their own camera. Especially those in the the 'dud' games.  This is still a money making entertainment operation.

Why would a multi billion dollar company risk losing it all?  It's *ic.

I think we can all agree that the refs are human. Well, at least most of them. Which means:

They will make mistakes.

They may not be unbiased in regard to teams and/or players.

They may have vices that interfere with their judgement.

They may have physical deficiencies that affect their ability to make a call correctly.

They have a life outside of football that may affect them while on the job.

 

Unfortunately, the best sport has the worst officials. First thing I do now after every play is look at the bottom right of the screen to see if the box turns yellow. It's awful.

As for replay, I have two options:

 

Option #1

1. On any down, review change of possession and score/no score. That's it.

2. On 1st and 2nd down, no reviews (other than the two above).

3. On 3rd down review it all.

4. On 4th down that is not a punt, review it all.

 

Option #2

Only reviewable play involves change of possession or potential change of possession. Score or no score.

Apparently Packers LT Bakhtiari complained to the refs about not getting hands-to-the-face calls earlier in the game, which led to the refs keying in on it later in the game.

He pulled a "Brady" haha.  But seriously, this kind of stuff (and all players AND coaches bark at officials all game long) is just another reason to get mistake-prone human zebras that can have their decision making influenced off the field and replaced with cameras.  A handful of cameras per ref won't miss the things the refs are always missing, and there won't be humans on the field for players and coaches to waste time and energy trying to lobby for a call.

 

We just need one glorified ball-boy that follows the ball on each play, blows the play dead, then places the ball for the next play and blows the whistle to announce any penalties caught by the cameras.  No decision making, just doing what the speaker in his ear tells him to do.

Then why have a coaches challenge if the are not enforcing it. If it is that blatant they should be able to stop the game from NY and reverse the call.

I think they can only in last 2 minutes. So it seems they don't want coaches throwing red flags on subjective penalties, it seems. But now NY can intervene (they couldn't in Rams/Saints game last year).

 

Originally, Sean Payton got all 31 other HC's on board to push this through the competition committee\, yet they only wanted it for the worst case scenarios-

    • GMs typically know how things will play out, IMO, as far as who is likely to move up for a QB etc. That is another reason Ballard did not want to move down from the Rock-Ya-Sin pick because he wanted him. I feel that there are 7 teams that will draft QBs.    Outside the obvious Bengals and Dolphins, I have 5 other teams I believe will draft a QB - Panthers, Bucs, Raiders, Chargers and Colts.    See my post here:        I do think we will win 7 games at least and my prediction is still 8-8 for us. In all likelihood, the only team that I drafting later than us that I see are the Raiders. If we are confident they will not draft a QB after what they invested in Carr, our odds are good if we drop down about 8-10 picks in the draft that the QB we want is still there when it is the Texans' 1st rounder turn. I expect Ballard and his scouts to have a good pulse on that.
    • Be prepared to be depressed, I already I am and expect JB to be the QB again at least for next year. Here is something to cheer you up:   Since in Indianapolis (1984, 84-2019 36 seasons) 12 Divisional Round appearances - 1987, 1995, 1999, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2013, 2014, 2018   5 AFC Title Game appearances - 1995, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2014   2 SB appearances - 2006, 2009   1 SB Championship - 2006 (that is what makes us an elite franchise factoring in all the other great wins).   -Hey man when you get down or depressed, just go to youtube and watch all the great wins we have had over the last 33 years . It started with Dickerson in 1987, then we had the likes of Harbaugh, Peyton, and Luck. We have been lucky to witness a bunch of great times. We never cheated either like the Pats have to get our success.
    • No, it didn't happen often and you can see that Kelly's right foot gets behind Q's left foot so he could not step back.   Still took him 3 seconds to get past Q.
    • Albert O won’t make it to the 5th, he’s a fringe 1st rounder. However, though I don’t totally agree, I can understand every other point you make! Love it whenever you put these out, keep it up!!
    • The way Nelson sets up in Pass Pro is different than most, and it’s only because he’s so powerful and has amazing technique. However, for a split second before he gets set, he’s vulnerable. If anything, this is a positive for Simmons, as it shows how quick he was to explode off the snap and immediately engage, rather than Q just getting overpowered. It’ll happen from time to time though. When Q gets set, he’s the best in the league and the only one who does what he does. If the defender gets there first, and they are as powerful as Simmons, it’s going to happen.
