The second hour of Rich Eisen Tuesday May 4th featured an interview with John Pollard from Zebra Sports. They put censor tags in shoulder pads to measure speed, run efficiency, etc. Which I knew. But he also said they put censors in the football to measure velocity of the ball.  I would love for the day to come where spot of the ball and determining first downs is automatically detected by field and football censors that can match up with the sound of the whistle. Rich asked him that very question. There are tags all over the field apparently.

It absolutely needs to happen. Too many things are left open for refs to make judgement calls. The more decisions we can take out if their hands, the better the game will be.

Ball placement should absolutely not be a judgement call. Any remaining judgement calls they make should be challengeable.

Honestly, refs should love to have this taken off their plate. It allows them to watch for other aspects of the game and one less thing for them to be criticized over.

It's probably an inevitability that this happens. Let's hope it doesn't happen until Belichick retires. Who knows how he will find a way to cheat that system.
