The NFL Makes Changes To Replay System
The NFL has made a change to their replay system. Today, NFL owners voted to use a centralized system to help referees in stadiums make decisions on replay reviews.
The rules is officially known as Rules Proposal 9. Here’s how it works: the centralized replay system will feature feeds from every game as well as an ability to communicate with officials through headsets as referees view replays on sideline monitors.
Referees will then have the ability to consult with the league’s Officiating Command Center in New York as they view replays at game sites but referees will still make the final calls on plays.
The NFL isn’t the first to use this type of system, Major League Baseball and the NHL also use centralized replay systems.
