    That’s why this is called American Football. In the rest of the world football is a great sport.

    As a former sports official my thinking was always there were three teams on the field. The two playing the game and the officials. All three are attempting to do as good of a job as possible. Mistakes are made by all three that can change the game. Maybe they should give do overs on busted plays, fumbles, interceptions, missed tackles, etc.

    Back in the middle years of the last century of the last millennium, I participated in sports in my junior high and high school days. We players were taught that “bad calls” were as much a part of the game as helmets, shoulder pads, and goal posts. Some such calls went against us, some benefitted us. While I appreciate wanting to get the call right, I do think that even the officials should have some sort of play-clock, just like the players. If you can’t make up your mind in 30 seconds, the call stands as called. Deal with it.

    like american football isn’t boring enough already. A throws to B. B drops it and they spend 4 minutes and a chevy commercial resetting.

    look at rugby, the play only stops if there’s a score, the ball goes out of bounds or there are too many bodies on top of the ball to move it. ball hits the ground and it’s who ever gets it first.

    My only complaint about watching American football is the wasted time. 7 second play then 4-6 minutes of dead time then a 7 second play etc etc.

    Football doesn’t need Refs, it needs Lawyers. We also need more beer brands to buy commercial time to keep things interesting.

    Rugby has also become like this whereby very few refs seem to want to make decisions of their own accord without consulting the TMO.
