Next season they will have a centralized location/home base to review replays. No more refs standing around for 2-3 minutes looking at film and making bad calls hopefully.

It's really not any more shady then when the refs. do it and are in contact with others while looking over the review.

I mean they can't exactly be shady when it's a replay that we all see. It would be far to obvious and stupid.

I am curious just to how a replay system from central office will work when you have a quick tip off a defender out of bounds. It only takes a few seconds for a ref to hand the ball off for an inbound, they better be quick to let the ref know they got to change the call.

lol at this being dubbed anything other than a huge improvement. I've been clamoring for something like this for awhile, thank god they finally listened to me.

I've never understood why they don't just have a 4/5th official at the scorers table that's job is to solely look at replays. It wouldve made so much sense to do that and give him 30 secs max to look at the replays and make a call (95% of the time viewers know what the call should be after one look at replay).

I guess this is an improvement over the crap they do now

Anything that reduces unnecessary time being spent is an improvement.

Hockey did replay first and they had an "upstairs " man always do it"

Then comes nba and MLB and both fudge it up

Yup, but this is fairly similar. It doesn't take long to dial a number and tell the officials at the arena what the call is. Plus having a centralized location is better than a single guy at the arena for this reason: having a team looking at plays at an off-site location should yield consistent and proper results instead of having a single guy at each different stadium doing it.

Behind closed doors official review...interesting. I guess this takes a little bit of pressure off the refs.
