i always enjoy watching old time games because the officiating (acually, the mechanics) is incredibly uncrisp and all over the place. I see umpires on steals that are close enough to make the tag themselves. The judgement/calls are not that bad, but by today's standards they would all receive an 'F' in mechanics. It makes you wonder if they had ANY set mechanics standards back then.

The best way to describe the way they make their calls back then is "non-robotic" or relaxed as compared to the precise movements and positions we use today.

Also, old-time football is just as bad.
