In 2012, Fans Attending Games Will See Same Replays That Referee Uses

This week, an interesting little tidbit came out, about how the NFL is going to break down some of its secrecy.

This season, if you attend games, you can feel like a referee. According to Pro Football Talk, when the ref is under the hood looking at replays, the in stadium boards will show the same replays that the ref is studying. Once the decision is made, those replays cannot be shown.

A good idea in my opinion. Let the fans that spend their money get a little perk for attending. It also might put more pressure on the refs to get it right, considering they are looking at the same thing that the home fans are looking at.
