This is a great idea, but I would take it a step further. I always thought they should place a small sensor inside the ball. Then place some type of monitoring system on the sidelines or even onto the overhead cameras. This system could tie into a computer in the replay booth that could accurately spot the ball, tell if it crossed the goaline and maybe even detect whether the touched the ground when a receiver catches. The replay booth official could call down to the field after every play and tel them exactly where to spot the ball or the Head ref could carry ansmart phone or something like it that would show him on a display where the ball was down at.Thus taking all the guess work out of these types of calls and ball spots. With all the technology out there I think they could eliminate the human factor of a lot of calls in football as it is.
