    If TV couch potatos can decide a millions of dollars outcome why not let them make all the decisions and get rid of the old fart marshalls? Let them call balls and strikes from home and call pass interference from their man caves. It is far more reliable than umps and cheaper. While were at it lets just play a video game at the 2018 superbowl.
