All replays will be reviewed by former umpires at MLB Advanced Media's facilities in New York with technicians available to provide the necessary video
I guess the alternative would be for all calls to be constantly monitored, with close calls reviewed automatically by the tech team, and for umps to be alerted when there should be a reversal of a clearly wrong call.
38.5 Logistics and Equipment - The Video Goal Judge must be located in a secluded area in the upper level of the building with an unobstructed view of both goals. The location must be large enough to seat three people (Video Goal Judge, Video Technician and Supervisor of Officials) and have space for necessary monitors, replay and recording equipment.
The Video Goal Judge shall have access to all replays that may be available by reason of any telecasts of the game and if there is no scheduled telecast the Club’s internal telecast of the game will be used.
Why there is, or has ever been, a fraction of doubt about the obviousness of this continues to vex me.
the nfl system is ridiculously poor.
#19 I agree that the NHL has a good system, but there is a huge advantage in the narrow focus of "Goal/no goal".
The CFL has a pretty decent system. Challenge based, but the officials don't spend hours on the hood watching things using stop frame. They aim to get huge mistakes dealt with in a timely fashion and mostly succeed.
i believe what is described in post 19 is what happens in college football. at least it does in the big ten. i think that replay system works pretty well.
Doesn't the NFL automatically review any scoring play now? And yet they retain the challenge system. So every scoring play is automatically reviewed and the coaches still have challenges to use on non-scoring plays.
Oh, and CFB you owe a bunch of people an apology. Or, at the very least, a heartfelt "My bad."
I like the challenge based system. If the call is wrong and nobody cares let it stand. The key will be reviewing the plays quickly -- like 30 seconds -- rather than spending 5 minutes like they do now.
Why not the NHL goal system where the central office reviews all goals scored? Every game is televised after all.
What happens if there is a bad call in the middle of a play?
Scoring plays are automatically reviewed, but non-scoring plays that might have been scoring plays are not.
Of course, it has devolved into just an automatic 2 bases. I don't recall ever seeing a guy on first being given home on a ground rule double. Less controversy that way
(e) A fair ball, after touching the ground, bounds into the stands, or passes through, over or under a fence, or through or under a scoreboard, or through or under shrubbery, or vines on the fence, in which case the batter and the runners shall be entitled to advance two bases;
(f) Any fair ball which, either before or after touching the ground, passes through or under a fence, or through or under a scoreboard, or through any opening in the fence or scoreboard, or through or under shrubbery, or vines on the fence, or which sticks in a fence or scoreboard, in which case the batter and the runners shall be entitled to two bases;
Hire four new umpires and let the replay room be a regular assignment for a crew. I realize this would require training, but that would only be a week, if even tha
During the review he may consult with a member of the League’s Hockey Operations or Officiating department staff if latter is in attendance at the game (or via telephone).
Then the beanie comes out, and they spend 2+ minutes reviewing a play that the tv has already conclusively proven was a bad call.
I've heard that mentioned before, and I don't get it. Roughly speaking 3 nights a week (Tues/Wed/Fri) there are 15 games going on at the exact same time(yes there might be a few games later on the west coast, but for the most part there will be 15 games going on at the same time.) I just don't see how you can reasonably expect 4 guys to handle that and make it efficient. Again baseball has money, it will cost them peanuts to hire another ump to each crew, and of course it prevents the umpires from objecting to replay.
If it reduces the idiocy of on-field manager arguing, that's good, but a challenge system remains the stupidest way to implement replay.
Umpires have no discretion on that particular play.
Ah, I appear to have been mis-informed about the rule.
