You'd think instant replay would be a no-brainer in every sport, but it just doesn't quite fit with faster-paced leagues such as the NBA and NHL. The NBA has made some tweaks to its replay system in an effort to curb the somewhat embarrassing flopping problem. The NBA also may add small advertising patches to team uniforms starting in 2013. Do these changes work, or are they a bit much?
The NBA's new rule changes seem to be focused on eliminating flopping and making sure teams don't get away with illegal defense in the closing seconds.
Replay in general?
The NBA, NFL and MLB all have some form of instant replay, although it is much more common in professional football than it is in the other two sports.
Soccer teams have prominent advertisements on their jerseys, and NASCAR uniforms and cars are festooned with all sorts of sponsor patches and decals.
