Canadian Football League

CFL commissioner Tom Wright said the league will continue to experiment with instant replay in 2005 but won't use it on a full-time basis.

"We're not forgetting about instant replay," Wright told the Canadian Press Wednesday from the league's winter meetings in Palm Beach, Fla.
"We will continue with our testing this year."
The CFL tested instant replay twice last season and will again this year. The league will conduct a live test during the June pre-season game between the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats in Halifax.
"As a reference point, it took the NFL four or five years of testing before they brought it in, then they took it out before bringing it back," Wright told CP.
"I've said all along I don't consider instant replay to be a cure-all, rather it's just another tool for our officials."
