The NBA's Board of Governors approved the use of instant video replay to review flagrant fouls during the game. Referees can turn to the video review after calling a flagrant foul to decide the severity of the foul.

FoxNews.com Sports Networks reports: The NBA's Board of Governors approved changes Thursday to instant replay to include the designation of flagrant fouls. Now, when the referee calls a flagrant foul on the court, officials can use replay to determine if it was a flagrant 1, flagrant 2 or just a common foul.

    Why waste more time focusing on flagrant fouls when half the time they don't even call the fouls that caused it to get the point where it's flagrant. If they would call all the fouls as they should this would never get pushed to a higher level of intensity. The only reason they want to replay them is so that Stern can hand out HUGE FINES...

    Less the fouls the better, because that's more time for teams to play basketball instead every time they touch the ball it's a foul.

    I know, but what I talking about is if a player grabs the ball they get fouled.

    The NBA refs need to use every tool at their disposal to do a better job on the court.

    The NBA has the worst officials of any sport; they need all the help they can get.

    I love the fact that everything is on video now. It keeps our police force honest, and it keeps our politicians honest. I love the video replays on Romney. They are hilarious.

    There are several democrats that I really like; I just cant think of their names. Bernie Sanders is another. I am trying to think of a republican I like, but darn it, I cant even come up with one that I respect.
