As if professional sports weren’t bad enough, tennis went out and bought instant replay. Starting this year, the game will have a challenge system and ready to use instant reply that will only make tennis players that much more snoby. From the article: “Oh, there will be some technical glitches. And no one will grasp the challenge system, which bears similarities to the NFL’s model of contesting officials’ calls, for the first few months. But it sure beats the alternative.”
What alternative is that? Leaving human error in an imperfect game that makes it more personable, exciting, and keeps it just a game. Heaven forbid, we still have human error and mistakes in this world.
Another reason why instant-replay-free baseball is still the best (minus the roids, of course).
