We likely never go to Super Bowl XXX if a) that rule had been in effect and b) replay had been in effect in 1995.

Not only because Kordell Stewart stepped OOB on his fumble, but because Ernie Mills dropped the ball when he went to ground following his spectacular grab at the one.


Ahh the good old days before high definition replays. I encourage everyone to go watch games on youtube from this era. There is never "was that a catch" discussion... they make the ruling and go, and very rarely is their a discussion or argument.

You'll see interceptions that were clear traps by today's standards.

Guys catching the ball and falling out of bounds as it comes out of their hands being a catch no questions asked/

Its refreshing... the game now sucks in many ways - and this replay bullshit is one of them.

The thing is, now that the league office is in on every review, you don't need any grand conspiracy just a couple guys in a NY office putting their thumb on the scale to keep games close.


The game is manipulated and has been for a while

I think it's less the issue that replay is a problem, and more the case they still get it wrong. The only thing replay has done is remove the human element that "mistakes are made in real time" and added a corporate element to suggest games are "manipulated".
