If the Chair Umpire over-rules and the player wins the video challenge, does the Ch Ump get replaced or fined ?

i dont think so. if that were the case, every lines person that is proven wrong by video challenge would be replaced/fined.

The linespeople are volunteers that work for free or get paid a little amount of money, they're not robots...

No - I'm asking about the Ch Ump - he's supposed to over-rule only if absolutely clear-cut, but sometimes they go wrong. What then? if there's video proof?

Of course not... It's a job like any other and mistake are happen.. Even when he is supposed to over rule only when 100% , mistakes are still possible. Do you expect to get replace or finedm at your job, when you make mistakes?

I would if it helped cost someone a million bucks and was on international TV seen on five continents plus Australia.

Umm...yes, depending on the mistake and the frequency. What kind of job do you work?

I don't think it should be that drastic but umps who are wrong again and again will be fired at some point, I hope.

oh yea, what happens if the call is overuled, they can't very well give the point to the challenging player unless it would've been a clear cut winner.........right? because the point wouldve gone on. So do they just redo the point or.........
