I would need to know more info before forming an opinion...

In principle, I'm not opposed to using computers...depends on how accurate they are and how they would affect the flow of the game.

More likely, I could see computers, gps, laser beams, etc assisting the refs on things like feet out of bounds, ball breaking the plane, field goals straight over the upright, false starts, offsides, or some other black and white type calls. Not sure how computers could help with judgements like holding, late hits, pass interference, etc...but who knows how good computers could get.

It would be quite a bit different if it was all done by computers though...can you imagine no human refs? That would sure change the feel of the game...not sure how I feel about that actually.
