    That is so true. I remember at the end of Super Bowl XLIII, Big Ben throws a TD pass to Santonio Holmes…I’m a Steelers fan watching the game in the middle of a bunch of Packer fans and they get all excited and cheer for me…except I’m sitting there waiting for the replay and the referees to confirm the play. Not to mention the review of James Harrison’s 100-yard INT return in the same game to end the first half. The “moments” are being ruined.

    It hit me recently that replay probably appeals to the casual fan who is more interested in the drama than the nuts and bolts of the play on the field. Think about all those reality TV shows and competitions where it all comes down to judges huddling together and deciding the winner. People love that stuff, and now it’s in sports where it doesn’t belong.

    Hmmmm. ESPN proclaims SC6’s format and hosts were the problem with the ratings? It took them a year to figure that out, eh? Absolutely amazing. If only they could have gotten feedback from their viewers when they first announced that format. Oh wait. Are we sure these guys are qualified to run a sports network?

    Don’t answer that.

    Incredible. But yeah, you just keep telling us that the costumer is wrong, we don’t know what we want, and WE’RE the ones who are out of touch.

    Czabe needs to stop bitching about replay. Not every down to the wire play is reviewed. His shitty Redskins are never good enough to be in a meaningful game where a last second play would matter. If his team got screwed on a last second play because of the lack of replay, he would bitch and moan on how they got screwed. I bet he wishes the Redskins could throw a red flag and review the decision to let Kirk Cousins walk. Have fun with “Captain Game Manager”, Alex Smith.
