NFL instant replay is anything but instant. Actually, it’s probably one of the most agonizing experiences in all of sports.
That’s why it easily, and instantly, finds a secure place in my FREE book Worst About Sports. Here’s an excerpt…
…You can read thousands of pages of Congressional legislation – twice – faster than a ref can sort out the very same play that he and his NFL officiating crew just witnessed live only a few moments ago.
Ironically, fans at home can raid the refrigerator, hit the head and update their fantasy picks, then find themselves stewing on the sofa as the zebra clad man slowly and seriously studies replays from every conceivable angle under a cloaked hood.
His decision should be easy, but it’s NOT.
The actions of the main man in stripes always seems slower than that of a slug’s.
Exactly what’s the ref doing under that black curtain?
Watching ESPN Sports Center?
Tweezing unwanted nasal hairs?
Calling Domino’s for a post-game delivery?
Or, reading an unabridged edition of War and Peace?
