I'm all for it. For me what matters most is that they get it right.

say what you will about the nfl's version of replay. But it's leagues better than college football.

I'm all for getting rid of it. Now it's just a tool to add more commercials. 'Red flag! We'll be right back'. Meh. They get it wrong enough that it's not worth the stoppage. Human error is human error, let it ride. Yes calls will be missed and cost games but that happens anyway. I was for it but game length and ads have driven me fully to against.

I dislike instant replay. I understand it's value, but hate the way it slows down the game & can interrupt a team's momentum.

Sports existed long before instant replay. There were bad calls & officiating corruption (at times). But life went on..

Happy Thanksgiving to all the City Data Sports posters ~

I like Instant Reply dont care how long they take as long as it gets the call right, its the catch-no catch crap that needs to go away.

Actually I believe they do that in Canadian football and bad calls are sometimes over turned.
