Penalties up for review?



The Bucs are nothing if not persistent.

A year after their proposal at last year's owners' meetings to make penalty calls subject to review went nowhere, the Bucs are raising the issue again at this year's meetings, which begin today in Phoenix.

They've tweaked the proposal to exclude offensive holding, but for the most part, it remains a drastic proposition. It gained little support last year, and it's hard to tell whether it will pick up steam this time around. The Competition Committee will take up the matter when it convenes this week.

So, what do you think? Is this a good idea? Or will it just complicate something that is already complicated: determining what is and isn't reviewable? It wouldn't necessarily lengthen games because teams would still be limited to the same number of review challenges. But this is far from a slam dunk.

Check out the Times this week for coverage of the developments in Phoenix. In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts below.
