…. One side sits in stony silence as the other side whoops for joy. The silence is momentary, then a loud angry roar erupts. The crowd is in mayhem but I don’t really care. The ref made a mistake, but the mistake was in favor of my team. We won!
…. The ref called it! He called it! It’s ours! We won! There’s grousing from the other team. Their coach strides forward. There is a gathering on the field. The announcer warns, “The call might not stand. There will be an automatic review.” Time slows down. What will the video show? I’m yelling in protest. I could see what the ref did not; I know what the video will show. I don’t like it.
My team could get by with lots more before cameras in every hand and videos in every stand at every football game in the land.
Half want a review; half do not. Will the call stand?
Why such fear of another “Roe vs Wade” situation being brought to the Supreme Court? Perhaps the favored side knows a mistake was made. They scream “No Review.” What chance another team of refs will make the same call?
Same Document. “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness….”
At what age is a “man” created? When does he attain the right to life? What does a sonogram show? Sure looks like a baby – a “man” with a right to life …..
