I don't think Schwartz thinks half the time.
Nice decision to bench broyles today. ****
First thing- why is it even a penalty for throwing the red flag? What's the difference between that play and any other play when a coach throws the flag and the refs tell him it's not reviewable? There's no penalty in that situation.
Second thing - announcers did a horrible job of explaining why it wasn't reviewed.
Third thing- There really isn't much diiference between the real refs and the replacement refs.
Dumb rule. Kubiak could throw a challenge flag on that just so they couldn't challenge it. Flaw in the rule book.
I want the replacement refs back after watching this game. Wow. Just turrible.
That blown call is looming large now.....
How many chances can the lions **** up?
The NFL needs to learn that the point of instant replay is to NOT HAVE ANY BLOWN CALLS, not be some cutesy game within the game of Let's Make a Deal to see if anyone can do something to end up screwing themselves.
Get rid of the challenge flags, do it the college way.
As a Bears fan I am kind of laughing here...however, they need to tweak that rule so that it doesn't affect plays that are automatically reviewed. If Forsett had been tackled at the 1 yard line (and Detroit didn't have any challenges left or inside the last 2 minutes) the play would have NOT been reviewable under my amendment...but since he scored...it triggers an automatic review...no harm...no foul...reviewable since play was stopped anyway for a review.
Seems simple enough to me.
