The One Hitter – XFL Coach’s Challenge
This is the one hitter, don’t forget to exhale…
If you’re like me and hundreds of other people this weekend, you’re watching the XFL in all its glory. Did I bet on the XFL? Yes. Does that make me a degenerate? Probably.
But that’s not what I am here to talk about. I am here to discuss that when there is a challenge, the replay review happens live on air. You get to see the command center and you can watch them examining the play and judging the call on the field. What’s interesting is how quickly they come to the decision as well. It makes me wonder what the heck is happening in all these other reviews we wait through in multiple sports.
This is something baseball needs to adopt. Not only for an improved broadcast, but to speed up the process and keep things moving. So MLB, do this.
Also end the blackouts you pricks.
