Can someone explain to me why certain plays are comsidered "non reviewable"? Random, I know..but I've always wondered what makes a play reviewable and what makes a play non reviewable.
For instance, recovering of a fumble is NOT reviewable. The reason being that a fumble is often followed by a scrum, with the ball possibly changing hands. It would be impossible to determine so they just give it to the team that has the ball when they unpile.
Penalties are not reviewable because they are judgement calls. I guess most reviewable plays have to be black and white, and not subject to interpretation, or conditional on the way the refs are calling it.
