I don't think I want the wrong call to be made.
What I am arguing is when the whistle blows, how can anyone say with certainty that by allowing a change of possession, that the "correct call" was in fact made.
A certain amount of assumption must be made on the Williams play, that had the whistle not gone, the Als would indeed have gotten the ball.
So we are back to my main point about replay.
We took about 5 minutes to make that call, and it is neither "right" nor "wrong" except that it fits the so-called interpretation of the rule.
But the rule itself is flawed.
And so what would have in fact allowed the "correct call" to be made, would have been referees who instead of being whistle happy, had been in position to decide whether it was a fumble or not in the first place.
Or delay the whistle for a second or two and let the play finish--which is what they supposedly are supposed to do.
The way it stands, first place in the east was decided by replay, and quite likely the Grey Cup representative in the east was decided by replay.
And for my money, that is way to much influence on the outcome of a game by the refs.
The best games are when we never notice the refs.
Now they are the centre of every game.
And the fact that after the call was overturned, both Flutie and Armitage both went, "ooh, replay works, we got the right call" confirms my belief that replay needs to go!!
