Tomorrow is the last college basketball game of the season. I hope the NCAA takes a look into its instant replay rules for basketball. It seems like the refs really abused it this season. I don't think I have ever seen so many issues with the clock not starting/stopping correctly either.

As for football in America, I'm getting kind of sick of the long stoppages in the NFL and NCAA too. I've seen some pretty stupid stoppages through the years in these sports too.

I've been watching live NRL rugby on FS1 and FS2 lately and have to say they do a great job with instant replay. Their officials are quick to determine if a guy was out of bounds, or touched the ball down. Then they announce the call and keep playing. American sports need to take notice.

Is anyone else ready to see instant replay changes in basketball?

imagine if it were like golf, where fans watching TV could call in and point out a mistake

^I hope the NCAA and NFL never go that direction. The fans already through a fit on 50/50 calls. Last time I checked, the thread on Pack Pride about the Clemson player being fouled at the end of the Duke game in the ACC Tournament was 4 pages long. The funny part is that call helped Duke win and Duke winning probably helped NC State get in the Tournament.

Some of the reviews in the NCAA tournament this year have been ridiculously long. Often just to add or subtract a couple tenths of a second to the clock. The clock issues themselves though are on the clock operator, not the officials. But 5 or 10 minute reviews are inexcusable.

Football stoppages have been nowhere near as long as some of the March Madness games. The NFL really has it's shit together as far as timing. I do think it's bullshit that if a coach wins 2 challenges he only gets one more, considering he was right on the first two blown calls. But that's another story.

I don't know what more they can do to change college bball replay rules though aside from put a time limit on reviews of maybe 2 minutes. Or, I dunno, hire some fucking competent officials.

^I think part of the problem in basketball is the new foul rules and players flopping every time they get touched. Then the refs go take a look for multiple minutes just to see if someone took an elbow to the face. The worst ones I have seen though are the refs calling fouls and then going to the monitor to see who is guilty of fouling someone. Um...if you just called the foul then that means you saw a certain player do something illegal. He didn't change jersey numbers in less than a second.

Yeah the mandatory elbow fouls extend games a good bit.

I don't have a problem with them reviewing who the ball goes out of bounds off of in the last 10 seconds, or if a shot was a 3 pointer or if the shooter's foot was on the line

But the refs just take too damn long. I don't think the rules are even that bad, I think it's the execution

Maybe part of the slow review problem is that a lot of times they're still using those tiny 8 inch monitors to make calls on. There was one game earlier this year where the refs asked to use the broadcast team's HD monitors in the middle of a review...how about they get them something like a 32 inch 4K TV back there.

I love how baseball challenges work. The manager goes out to argue with the umpire to stall while an assistant gets on the phone in the dugout to someone watching the replay. Assistant gives thumbs up/down to manager arguing with ump. Somehow they still can't get it right half the time.

Hockey seems to do it pretty well from what I can tell, although I don't watch a lot of it.

College Basketball is annoying because you can pretty much add time to the clock after every event that happens.

Why go over to the monitor at all? Just have an official in the booth radio down with the result. So stupid to have those guys on the floor go over to a monitor when the tv audience has already reviewed it many times over

Now that was tolerable to watch. There weren't any stupid delays.

Some reviews are ridiculously long, half the time I think it's just a way to shoehorn in another commercial.

^They don't always go to advertisements though. They just let the viewers look at two refs looking at a screen.

Any person that does not believe in replay should not be allowed to criticize a referee ever. Not going to happen of course, but that's just my philosophy. If you don't believe in replay and then bitch about how the ref cost your team the game missing a foul that led to an important scoring play, just shut the fuck up, I don't respect your opinion at that point. You're allowed to not think there should be instant replay in sports, but if you think that, you're not allowed to bitch about referee error getting a call wrong. Ever. And a lot of soccer fans that don't believe in replay bitch about refs. In fact, almost all of them on BigSoccer.

I'm starting to really hate this shit for baseball. Every close play makes the manager come out to bullshit with the ump, even if there isn't a challenge making an already slow game even slower.

There should be a time limit after time is called once a play is over for a challenge window. 10 seconds, that's it.

Just flipping through old threads for fun. Almost 3 years later replay still sucks. Once again the other night I was watching a college basketball game and the refs called a foul because a player was slapped on the hand. Then they went to the monitor to see who the foul was on. If you're going to call a foul you shouldn't have to look at the monitor to see who it was on because if you do then you probably didn't see a foul.

protocol for replay in any form of organized bball seems very disorganized

^I don't know that it is disorganized as much as it is abused. It seems like they like to go look at the monitor sometimes even when they know they are right.
