I tend to agree, but this is a situation of where do you draw the line? You could have 20 reviews on spots during every NFL game, because referees commonly get spots wrong by 1/2 yard throughout games.
Maybe draw the line at 1 FULL YARD mis spot to avoid losing challenge and timeout. This would discourage teams from challenging every minor bad spot by referees.
