INSIDE THE NFL
Although two or three questionable calls a week highlight the
need to bring back instant replay, don't count on its happening.
Reinstating replays after a six-year hiatus would require
approval from 23 of the 30 teams, and there have not been enough
changes of heart among the nine clubs that didn't vote for the
measure last March. "There is no such thing as absolute justice
in the NFL, any more than in real life," says Bengals president
Mike Brown, a member of the NFL's Competition Committee, the
body that recommends rule changes. "To me this has been debated
about as thoroughly as an issue can be, and I've seen nothing
that has changed, including the state of the art on instant
replay. We should let it rest."
