    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?

    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.........
