How mad were opponents of instant replay tonight?

They should be enraged!
Lance Berkman hit a home run! The umpires called it that way on the field... and another one confirmed it.

Umpires make calls and whether they are right or wrong and whether or not we have the technology to make calls correct and reward players for what they actually do and not for what they DON'T do... we should NEVER use that technology.

That's the HUMAN ELEMENT, right?

So I assume all of you who hate instant replay HATED the fact that the call was reversed, am I right?

You must have been saying "NO! Leave the call WRONG! Baseball is better when calls are wrong!"

(Seriously... someone please send me a logical reason to NOT have instant replay. I've been begging for an answer.)

  1. It's also the problem with our football (yours soccer) with the ghost goals, when the reffree says it's goal and the ball doesn't cross the goal line. Why they don't use technology? I got an answer, when something wrong or polemic happens on sports more tv programs and more newspaper talks about it and more people buy them or use to watch them. Then more companies use to ad and more money it's generated.

    That's always money.

  2. I too have an answer Sully. Bud Selig is afraid to convert to intstant replay because he doesn't want 1994 to happen again. What a fool.
