More Booth Reviews Leads to Longer Games In the NFL
The lockout has been nothing but long and boring for us NFL fans. Something good has come out of this cluster (Pluck). Just how good is more Reviews and how will they be used.
This is in principle a good idea, it will allow teams to use their challenges more liberally during the first few minutes of a game instead of saving them only for scores. It won’t slow the game down noticeably at all, the reviews will be done by the replay ref up in the box. If and only if the review finds something the Field Ref’s will get involved. Its not like every single play will be under a review….Yet.
