FIRST YEAR OF CENTRALIZED REPLAY A SUCCESS, SAYS ACC

The ACC’s Football Replay Center is a Winner.

For the moment, ACC league Coordinator of Football Officiating, Dennis Hennigan, seems happy with the way Collaborative Instant replay has been used in its first two seasons; of course, not everyone will agree with his assessment. The Sports Techie community blog sure does and believes using video to assist referees must become a standard across sports when appropriate rather than entirely relying on the human eye . In fact, if all you care about is analyzing football betting line on popular sportsbooks, the use of this technology by the ACC might not interest you.
