    Maybe the coach can throw a hankie onto the pitch if he wants to challenge.  I saw that once somewhere.

    The NFL referees throw a flag onto the ground when they see an infringement. In the same game the coaches used to have the chance to challenge on a few decisions but after a few years they got rid of it, finding that the ref was correct most of the time.

    However, in our game I think it is a great idea and should be trialled.

    While you are at it - GET RID OF TWO REFs.

    I think it's a great idea although the video ref didn't help the Bulldogs against the Dragons.
