IF it works.....😂😂😂

That is a big "if".

I know I am in the minority but I also do not like replay. It hurts the flow of the game...causes too many play stoppages...and has hurt the quality of "on the field" officiating.

Ever since the 1979 AFC Championship game I've been a supporter of replay.....

I know some old fuddy duds won’t like this. These are the same dudes that got upset when the chain gang replaced the boa constrictor gang.

I think about "alternate" football leagues the same way I think about pizza: no matter how lousy it is, at least it's pizza.  :D

The way high school, college and NFL have gone to marking the ball, it is rare they ever have to measure…….a punt can very very very slowly roll out-of-bounds where everyone can see it is out on the 20 1/2 yard line……when they mark the ball, it will either be on the 20 or 21 exactly.  Just an example but happens 99% of the time.

That's the kinda innovation I'm hoping to see more of. 

I noticed a set of REAL chains being kept too.....guess that's in case the computer system blows up.....😂😂😂
