Ravens pull replay review system overhaul proposal
The Baltimore Ravens have pulled their proposal to overhaul the NFL’s replay review system, reports ESPN’s Kevin Seifert.
The Ravens, who withdrew their proposal Thursday, will no longer advocate for the change in next week’s spring meetings in North Carolina, as was originally expected.
In March, the team offered the NFL a proposal to mend the instant replay system. The proposal included ideas to alter the current system by making nearly all penalties reviewable.
“It will allow us to get it right,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh told Seifert. “There were five games last year that were determined by non-reviewable calls. ... The fans don’t understand that. They don’t want to look at that all week, to see that their team, the official made a mistake that everyone can see, that the fans saw in real time, that the league says it’s not reviewable, and we can’t fix it.”
The competition committee spent the past two months reviewing Baltimore’s proposal before it was pulled on Thursday.
