Watching MNF during the 49ers 2 point conversion attempt in the final minutes got me thinking. How can new technology improve the officals ability to call the game. Anything from Microchips in the balls for more accurate measuring of yardage etc to helmets that measure G-forces from collisons. Would the football world embrace some of these innovations or is it just going to complicate an already too complex situation? It took two tries to get replay right and I think the challenge aspect of it really rocks.
I did some quick research on the web to see if there were any shiny new fangled systems that are ready for primetime and just waiting for the NFL to sign on. I found some stuff to improve Helmets for Heat stroke and Twisting ones Helmet to far. But nothing that would really make a huge impact. One fan's post from MNF was saying they should put cameras in the pylons for goalline stands, Anything like this sounds cool to me.
Anyway what kind of stuff can we think up to really improve the game and put and end to these what if's, or am I on cloud nine and we should just stick with what works and not complicate the works any further. What do you boys (and Gals) think? can we improve our favorite sport with tech or is this just a bad idea?
