I'm not quite sure what you're saying there, Ray. I personally don't think any coach has a right to view a single replay prior to throwing the challenge flag. IMHO, the system (with a few exceptions) is doing what it's supposed to- minimizing bad calls by the refs.
If I had my druthers, no one would be able to run a replay on the jumbotron or in a coaches booth until after the next play is snapped. That way a coach would have to rely on the word of his player(s) involved in the play. But that's only a minor issue for me. Maybe that's what you're saying and, if so, I agree 100%.
