Default Opinion of instant replay?

So, do you guys like instant replay system, or should we go back to having the refs just call the plays like they see them without the help of review?

Personally, I like instant replay, although I must admit that it seems there is a bad call every week even with instant replay.

I'm not sure that the way they have it set up in the NFL is the right way to do it. BUT there is NOTHING more important, including tradition, then GETTING THE CALL RIGHT. So I'm STRONGLY in favor of it, and I'd like to see it implemented in every sport where its logistically plausible.

The best mechanical systems are only as good as the humans running it, so yes, there are flaws in the system, but those are usually human error anyway.

I'm for it. It can slow down the game quite a bit, but after watching the ASU vs CAL game on saturday, the ref could have done with instant replay when they botched two early calls that gave the CAL team a fumble recovery that wasn't a fumble on the opening kick off, which then led to a TD catch that was clearly not under control when the receiver stepped out of bounds in the endzone. I cannot really remember a bad replay call since maybe the tuck play the Patriots got against the Raiders a few years back.

Agree with Kevin and others. I'd rather have some delays than get calls wrong. It's important the right calls are made because it should be the action on the field that decides the game, not a ref's mistake.

THe biggest flaw is that you get only two the whole game unless you win both challenges. Why don't they just say you're allowed to have as many challenges as you have timeouts. I think it's silly to have only two challenges in the whole game.

Also, they should change it where you can challenge in the last two minutes of a half. The present rule is stupid.
