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%.
Yea, I like instant replay, but they have some serious administration issues in both college and pros. I agree with you on the above, there is also the issue of teams trying to get the play run real quick on a close call. Why have the system if you leave a loophole like quick snapping the next play?
