Unless you have a 5th official whos sole duty is to watch the TV and he instantly says yes Robben dived book him now and give a free out to whoever he dived against. But you couldnt stand around and have NFL discussions to delay the game.
Yeah, it would need to not break the flow of the game or it would change one of the best aspects of the game (imo). NFL breaks are horrendous, and the pace of the game bothers me, I have a hard time watching it now.

Anyone watch the ManU game yesterday? It was a lot of fun to watch as ManU was so aggressive for so long (I'd say about 60 minutes), while Olympiakos also seemed to want a fast pace.

I though Rooney had a great game, he was seemingly all over the place. I also liked the way Valencia played, very aggressive on the ball. RVP knew where to be yesterday, and Giggs frequently helped get things going. I'm not a ManU fan, but the game was fun, imo.

Unless ManU up their game significantly the result against Bayern could be embarrassing.

PSG vs Chelsea will be far closer.

With RvP out, Manchester United make their uphill battle even that much worse.

I think it's going to be Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich in Lisbon.
