NFL owners vote to make replay permanent
PHOENIX -- Replay is here to stay in the NFL.
Or at least as permanently as any rule can be in pro football.
League owners voted 30-2 on Tuesday to make the video replay system a permanent officiating tool. All but three stadiums will be equipped with high-definition equipment and will be recabled before the upcoming season, at a cost of as much as $300,000 per club. The stadiums being replaced in Irving, Texas, Indianapolis and East Rutherford, N.J., will not get the updates.
