We talked about this on the podcast tonight and I wanted to pose the question here in the forums to everyone. With instant replay now being used to review every scoring play as well, why not use it to review certain types of penalties?
I'm not suggesting you review every hold, pass interference, or illegal formation but rather use to review any personal foul call. Let's face it, those can be game changing penalties, especially late in the game. If you get a roughing the passer, or helmet to helmet hit late in the game the opposition keeps the chains moving and you're stuck out on the field on the defense. In a close game that can be an absolute killer.
If you're already slowing down the game to review the scoring plays and taking forever to review a normal challenge then you might as well go the next step and make sure a personal foul is really a personal foul. How many times would a perceived helmet to helmet maybe get overturned when you can watch it in slow motion?
Perhaps give the coaches the chance to challenge one of these types per game or just make them an automatic review?
