We need better historians.I wish computer's/replay existed for the Drew Pearson pushoff that was clearly offensive pass interference and led The Cowboys to beat my Vikings in 1975. But as with most things in life history doesn't care about the details and winners aren't judged by "how".
They might well have lost either way.I agree. From game 1 of the series where the same pitch is consistently called a ball for one team, and a strike for the other, to inconsistent calls in other games (I'm talking to you Angel Hernandez) to bad calls in the final game.
Giants frankly have been lucky and their luck ran out.
They're in the way.The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers.
It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time...
This field, this game; it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again.
When I watch my favorite team play...it makes me feel young again. Reminds me of watching Willie Davis round second and lose his helmet on the way to a triple. Or Maury Wills stealing home. Watching Walter Alston kick dirt on home plate because of a bad call and getting ejected from the game.
The umpires are essential to the game. Replace them with a computer and it'll kill it.
There has to be a way to overturn bad calls in every case.They're in your way. They're not in mine.
At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, the sanctity of The Game is on the line
To me that sounds like saying "we know too much now".No it isn't.
It's been like that for a century. It's part of the game. The instant replay stuff is BS. Call it, accept the call and play the game.
Televised sports in the modern era has screwed up the game.
