The slope is now completely covered with Crisco.

It is probably a good idea to have one state experiment with instant replay, before mandating it for everyone. 

I don't know how other areas of the country will react, but in my area (Wisconsin) I expect COST to be the major problem, regardless of the success of the experiment.  We just have too many small schools.  Consolidated teams and 8 man teams are becoming more prevalent.

Good luck with this Bama, and please let us know how itís working.

If the average game time expands by the upper end of ďno more than 30 minutesĒ that would put us at over 3 hours nearly every week (unless we have a running clock).

Seems to me the big (only) winner in this is DVSports.

Sad, but true.

Time to buy some stock!

Cost is my concern here too, and that would then lead to inconsistencies in crews due to exposure/experience.

Where I am, I would expect very few schools to immediately run out and buy the system if it became an option -- but there would be a couple that did. Crews that worked games at those schools would learn the system, but crews that generally didn't work those schools would have no incentive (or ability) to learn -- UNTIL -- the 2nd/3rd round playoff game where a crew with no replay experience is suddenly tossed to a school with replay equipment and expected to use it flawlessly (because it's the playoffs...).

Hopefully Alabama works out those growing pains with as little controversy as possible (and then decides it's not worth it...)

Perhaps there needs to be a new signal/mechanic for "Call Stands" and "Call Changed" to let everyone know what the ruling is, since most schools will not have a microphone.

In keeping with the post below, how about a thumb (finger) up for call stands, down for call reversed?

I kinda like the point to center-ice (for confirmed or stands).  And then the "no good" signal, followed by a one-fingered salute toward the calling official for no-score.   ;D

Minnesota used instant replay in their semifinal & championship games as an experimental rule. There was very little support for it at the Rules Committee meeting. If there are any on the forum from Minnesota, they may be able to fill us in.

Ice hockey is the only sport that my wife enjoys watching ,so it is a favorite of mine ,too . IMHO, Sidney Crosby is today's Gretsky and wish the Penguins success over the Flyers. Our NEW ENGLAND Bruins (along with the Celtics) have our hearts now - once eliminated they will return to Those Boston Bruins ! Enjoy the Pen's push for Lord Stanley's Cup. :)
