Video FA1733 – Instant Replay System (IRS)

This game clip has been published for educational purpose only.

On this play, the game clock signal sounds for the end of the period and at approximately the same time the Lead Official calls a personal foul against Red-13. Immediately after, the Trail Official informs that the foul has occurred after the game clock signal has sounded. Decision: the personal foul against Red-13 is ignored.

One of the officials can change his decision if he has been satisfied that his partner was in better position to make the correct decision.

One thought on “Video FA1733 – Instant Replay System (IRS)

  1. I don’t think this was the best way to handle this. The lead referee didn’t really “change his decision”, there was no communication at all. The trail ref actually overpowered the colleague and did not inform anybody about anything. A quick communication and a common decision would have been a better deal in my opinion.
