    Default NFL owners to vote on proposal to make all ejections subject to review

    All NFL player ejections will be subject to replay review if owners approve a competition committee proposal next week at their spring meeting in Atlanta.

    The change, released in writing Wednesday by the NFL, is part of a larger effort to discourage players from lowering their helmets to initiate contact with opponents. Owners adopted that rule in March.

    Flagrant instances of those fouls will lead to ejections, similar to the NCAA's targeting rule. But the competition committee, along with many coaches and other on-field personnel, felt strongly about using replay as a safety net against such a severe penalty.

    Sweet! More things to slow the game down and make every telecast 4 hours long to squeeze those ad dollars out

    This one is probably justified, though.

    Honestly, I donít like it. If they keep making everything the officials do subject to review, then why even have them? It undermines their authority. Ya know how to fix problems with official calls? Hire better officials. Donít hamstring them every chance you get with super slo-mo video cameras. Do we really want a game with no officials? Do we really want a game where every single holding call, illegal contact, and PI is called? Do we? Weíd never actually see a football game. Anything that continues to take power and authority away from the refs is bad, IMO. The more they are second guessed and shit on by the broadcast crew and replay the worse it is for the game. This is just retarded.

    I believe the quality of officials is the same, but that they've come to rely on instant review. Certainly, there are so many subjective rules now, than many years ago. Though officials can frustrate me, I respect anyone of them for trying in today's NFL.
    why you so serious!

    It’s not retarded at all. This is great. If they’re going to institute the college targeting rule, you have to review ejections because it’s such a gamechanging event.
    *The statements above are my opinions, unless they are links, because then they are links, which wouldn't make them my opinions, and I suppose stats aren't necessarily opinion, but they are certainly presented to support an opinion. Proceed accordingly.
