Fans in NFL stadiums next season will be able to follow along with the referee when he’s under the hood during a video review.

Atlanta Falcons president Rich McKay, the chairman of the league’s competition committee, told that teams will show on stadium display boards what officials are watching.

“(Fans will) see the exact same angles at the exact same time as he does,” McKay said.

The simulcast is among the tweaks to the replay system for 2012. Another is that all turnovers will now be reviewed by replay booth. All scoring plays were made subject to review last year.

McKay told the scoring-play component did not slow down the game. In fact, McKay claimed, the average time of NFL games decreased by a second.

McKay sounded dubious when discussing whether the NFL would eventually adopt the NCAA’s model of a replay official reviewing all plays and making decisions from the booth.

“College football feels very comfortable with their decision upstairs. But I don’t see that in our near future,” McKay said.
