N.J. lawmakers ignore leagues’ pleas over sports betting

Murphy spokesman Dan Bryan said in a statement the governor has long been supportive of New Jersey’s right to allow sports betting and he wants to ensure that the proposed regulatory scheme is fair and reasonable.

A source familiar with the situation said Murphy is not expected to sign the bill this week.

Johnson became Patient Zero for a precedent that faced increased scrutiny when the Cowboys ‘ Dez Bryant and the Steelers ‘ Jesse James — among others — had big plays overturned in high-profile, nationally televised games.

Technological advances have provided networks with high-definition, frame-by-frame replays dissected Zapruder-style and interpreted for the viewing audience in complicated legalese. A replay system initially installed to correct obvious mistakes is now intruding on all major U.S. sports with time-consuming, multi-angle investigations beyond the capabilities of the naked eye.

I think you (have to take the human element) into account, Johnson added. Yeah, slow motion can show every bitty frame, but you have to also take into account what actually happened in real time, I feel like. You take it slow mo and that easy catch can turn into, ‘Dang, he bobbled it a little bit.’
