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-

    • I like Dillon, but he is what he is, a between the tackles RB with zero value to the passing game. 
    • Going into the season, I thought we had a very formidable 1-2 WR group with TY and Funchess.  I had higher hopes for Cain and thought Campbell would really blossom as the season went on.     Funchess got hurt for the year after it looked like he and Jacoby had nice chemistry week 1.  Cain wasn't the Cain the colts.com documentaries were making him out to be.  TY has been banged up for a good chunk of the season.  Campbell has shown flashes, but he's been hurt or injured almost all season.     On top of that, I thought Ebron and Doyle would be one of the most formidable TE groups in the league.  Ebron had multiple bad drops along the way and is now on the IR.  Doyle's had an all right year, but the rest of our TE's are nothing better than mediocre (at least at receiving).     While J. Williams also had a couple of good games, our running attack was without our #1 for a couple weeks and our team didn't win with Mack on the injury report.
    • LOL yes I have been an eyewitness to much of this, definitely don’t need to see it on YouTube to believe you. And I have had the unfortunate experience of wearing my Colts jersey to a preseason game once, definitely got taunted and that was only preseason! Only didn’t bother me as much because I grew up in inner city Philly so I was used to the rudeness  but no I totally get it, I never said the reputation wasn’t deserved. But since I am from Philly I just jump to hating Dallas more, just my personal bias 
    • https://www.google.com/amp/s/syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/2638165-aj-dillon-displays-freak-athleticism-will-be-all-purpose-back-at-michigan.amp.html "Standing 6'1", 239 pounds, Dillon clocked a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash and a 4.29 in the shuttle. His athleticism (38.3-inch jump) and strength (40-foot toss) were also on display, earning him SPARQ (speed, power, agility, reaction and quickness) ratings MVP honors for a second-straight year."   https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/aj-dillon-1.html   Freshman 2017.  1500+ yds Rushing Sophomore 2018. 1100+ yds  Junior. 2019.          1600+ yds   RB isn't high on my "Colts need" list, but A.J. Dillon is the perfect complimentary RB for this Team. Even at 249lbs he's still running a 4.5 40-yd and he doesn't get injured like Mack bc of his size.  
    • Dude, he didn’t play well when he had the starters playing. Face this fact, he can’t get past his first read, regardless of the time his oline gives him. He isn’t Manning or Luck and that’s always been clear,  ever felt he would be. I always thought he would be capable of reading more than 1 and maybe sometimes 2 reads but he hasn’t and at this stage, don’t think he can. He isn’t the guy this team risks the “with time he will get it”. He hasn’t shown growth in that area. Solid bench guy. Great team morale guy. Awful awful starter.
