View Full Version : Seriously why can't NBA implement an On-Demand Replay System

I don't know for a sure, but I feel like these bad calls are ruining the game of basketball. It's not so much the point rather than disrupting the momentum of the game. I think my implementing a system like in tennis where:

- Each team is given a certain number of "challenges" each quarter to review a call
-If ref call after reviewing is still correct, then game continues. Team loses ability to challenge that quarter
-If ref call after reviewing was seen to be incorrect, the team that challenged the call receives the ball, point, free throw, etc.
- If the call was made incorrect, and the team challenged, team still has the opportunity to challenge again in that quarter.

A rule like that wouldn't work in the NBA. Very stupid idea actually. The reason it's used a lot in tennis is because they have a ball tracking technology that can show exactly where the ball landed and determine if it's out or not. It's objective, with no arguments from either player.


If something like that is used in the NBA, it would not work at all. Most fouls in the NBA are subjective fouls. One referee might agree that the foul was a block, while the other one might complain it was a charge. You just can't do it in the NBA. All fouls in the NBA are very subjective.

BRB team challenging saying it was a charge, but the ref sees the replay and determines it was a blocking foul.

Ok if it was a blocking foul then nothing happens, the call was correct and the play continues. Team loses ability to challenge again in that quarter
Yes tennis has ball tracking technology but video review can provide a correct call. Foul is not subjective if there is a review. If the player is touched on the shooting motion it is a foul. The rules of the NBA were theoretically made to be not subjective. A video review allows for a right call.

Also on the tennis thing. The ball tracking thing is known to be subjective as well. Many players have complained about it being inaccurate especially when the ball barely scrapes the line.

Yes, there are some things that are objective in the NBA (like touching the hand when the player is shooting) but other things are difficult to determine even with a video review and that's my whole point. Blocking fouls are difficult to call, also fouls where both players go down on the floor trying to flop/win the call. NBA is a contact sport, you'll have both sides going crazy arguing over the reviews.
