Default Fans in stadiums to see ref's replay

Fans at NFL games this season will get a look under the hood, so to speak -- all stadium video boards will show the same replay the lead official is viewing on the sideline video monitor.

"They'll see the exact same angles at the exact same time as he does," Rich McKay, the Atlanta Falcons' president and NFL competition committee chairman, said this week.

So the cheers or groans could subconsciously affect the refs decision?

I think the replays should be shown but I don't know if the whole stadium needs to see the exact same thing as the offical.

BTW Love the talking head who talks about fans one day being able to use "Transistors" to one day listening into the playcalls ! TRANSISTORS!

Until I can call the plays I'm not impressed. When a team is out of the running the should let fans win contests to call a play lol.

Now I haven't been to a stadium since Denver @ SD back in 98. This seems like a good thing.

I think it puts more pressure on the official to get it right...

I hate how fan reactions change officials' calls, that's the worst part of basketball.

Those better be noise canceling headphones he's putting on before entering the booth...
