Lol. That guy clearly works his biceps before games, so he can give a good flex when making calls. Also, for some reason, "Ed Hoculi" sounds like a wrestling name.

I really think they should get rid of instant replay. I don't like having too much communication between the booth and the guys calling the game. People may say, "well, instant replay helps them get it right." To that, I say, "so?" The referee is always right. Whatever he rules is what "occurred" on the play. A lot less funny business would go on if the guys on the field would just use their judgment and there was no time to review plays, we just went with what they saw.

I'm sorry, instant replay totally changes the game of football and I think that's definately a negative. "Getting it right" is usually an excuse for being able to get it wrong initially. I don't want second guessing. I want one call, from the officials, and that becomes history. Too many times, instant replay totally changes a game. Getting it right or not, one team still gets screwed, as well as the fans.

I'm with John Madden on this one. Every play in football is now about "was his knee down before the fumble?", "was his arm moving forward before it was hit?", "did he trap that one?" All thanks to instant replay. Guess what, who cares? If it looks like a fumble and smells like a fumble then it's a fumble. When the ground causes the fumble, the official knows right away and rules it down by contact, that never needs to be reviewed anyway. The location of a guy's knee has no bearing on the likeliness that he will cough up the ball. I hate cop outs.
You think the ref is always right? Well thats what you think now but I'm sure you wouln't think so if you lost an important game because a bad call. I don't think any team gets "screwed" if the right call is made. If you don't catch a ball inbounds then why would you get screwed if it's called an incomplete pass because of instant replay. There's a lot greater chance that a team gets screwed w/o instant replay.

Here is why I am in favor of Instant replay...Anybody remember this?? This sold me on Instant Replay.... OH BTW...I was at that Body Bag Game In Philadelphia

Jan. 4, 1991

Redskins 20, Eagles 6

Eight weeks removed from the infamous "Body Bag Game" at the Vet - when Buddy Ryan's Eagles knocked nine players out of the game - the Redskins returned to the City of Brotherly Love and got their just desserts.

Behind 126 total yards from Earnest Byner, who caught a huge break when his first-half fumble was overturned by instant replay, Washington won this NFC wild card game in convincing fashion.
