If you guys remember, there was a LOT of resistance in football circles when the NFL first began IR. There were some problems, some wrinkles, and even some decrying it as the end of the sport. The same arguments were made then - "The human element must be kept in the game, etc". And today, it's an accepted part of the game, and I don't believe very many people would currently consider it a negative.
FWIW, NFL owners did vote out IR at one time. It was reinstated a couple of years later. Anyway, the head coach doesn't throw the red flag until he gets some sort of replay input from the coaches' booth most of the time. Kind of takes out the human element to me.

Replay Update

In an exclusive and expansive survey of major leaguers conducted by USA TODAY and The Sports Xchange from June 4 to 14, 55% of 584 players who participated said they were against expanding the use of replay as opposed to 43% in favor of it. Each was offered anonymity, but many commented.

"Wow … I find (the results) very interesting," Selig told USA TODAY in a telephone interview Saturday.

There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.
