The NFL is embracing ball technology. America’s league is reportedly in talks with Cairo Technologies about the possibility of implanting a microchip into official NFL game balls. The move would certainly eliminate the human error aspect that tends to surface on questionable spots late in games, particularly on quarterback sneaks, where a first down is routinely awarded to elite QBs even when no forward progress has been made. But what fun would the NFL be without controversies and irate fans? Count me in as a “no” on ball implants. However, I’m still strongly in favor of providing each referee with a Segway. [via Wired]
