Mo’ Cameras, Mo’ Angles

Stated Change: Put six cameras on all boundary lines — sideline, goal line, end line, to guarantee coverage for replay reviews.

Duh.  Why is this even under consideration?  Why does this even need to go in front of the competition committee?  Not only should this have been something implemented when instant replay was first ever used in the NFL, why does a committee need to dictate camera quantity and angle restrictions?  This one needs to pass.  I’ve seen too many games (more than one) where it was apparent that refs had too poor an angle to make a judgement call because a camera wasn’t on say, oh I don’t know, the friggin’ goal line!  Again, a rule that would benefit everyone and hurt no one.
