They can't replay it. It's just a blown call by the refs.
On rare occassions, this can happen. Especially in football, where a team might get away with 12 players on a play here or there.....I don't think its as big a deal as people think, just comical.......
this is the correct point of view and the way the league views it. The refs ****ed upp, but all they can do is call a tech after the fact. Pretty sure they cant reset and "do over" under the rule book. If boston lost by 1, I could see it being a big deal.
