    Does the aaverage fan really care if a good game is 2:56 or 3:12? I just never really remember having this discussion at a bar or freind's house.

    Isn't this what colleges do right now, except they check every play? I don't see it being an issue unless its a questionable catch or whether they broke the plane of the goal line. I mean,it takes a few minutes celebrate the TD then get the special teams on the field. The play can be replayed a few times in that time, same as they do on the broadcast.

    I don't think this will add too much time to the game. A few minutes at most. I do wish they would get rid of the damn commercials after kickoffs though.

    As long as the right call is made, I don't think it's a bad thing.

    This reminds me of that blown review that they pulled on Arian against San Diego last year. I still can't believe they called it an incompletion.

    I think as long as it's more of a behind-the-scenes type of replay, it'll be fine. It's not like every single play isn't replayed at least once to the viewers at home anyway. If it can stay hidden when there's no need for it but pop up when there is a genuine concern then right on.

    If it's going to be some dirge in the middle of every touchdown, screw it.
