When they go to the monitor to check a replay, why does at least one of them put on earphones? Is it to hear and interact with a director/producer? I mean they are just watching a replay, right?

My guess it's the truck for instructing back and forth in review

I believe it is to tell the producer which angles they want to look at - say that one is not helpful and then say, "let's see that one again."

That is my understanding.

That's what I figured, but tonight it just struck me as odd when the official got his face right in front of the monitor and put on the headphones as we watched the replay at home.

I always assumed the were listening to some Michael Bolton. Ya know....to help relax them so they can make the correct ruling.

I've always considered Kenny G the Michael Bolton of the saxophone.

Apparently I had been incorrectly informed they listen to soundtracks from '70s porn flicks. I stand corrected.

When you're fresh out of Michael Bolton/Kenny G tunes, it's good to have options.
And Zamfir (the pan flute guy) will do in a pinch.
