They can't hold up play indefinitely while they try and fix the equipment....there is a time limit (still there right?) on the amount of time that can be spent reviewing the play before it defaults to the "on the field call" otherwise you start really bothering the flow of the game for both the fan and the players.
I agree that it is absurd that there was a problem with the equipment but $#@&$ happens and they did the only thing they could do...keep going...as mentioned on one of the post game shows...had they seen the replay it "should" have been ruled a Simultaneous catch and therefore UN-REVIEWABLE so the outcome would have been the same, TD Denver. Note I could care less about the game but it is an interesting "distraction" this week and I can't wait to see the "reactions" on Sports center this coming week. Go Steelers.
