Oh you and your casual allegiances again! If my team were on the tube for 4.5 hours I will still tune in until the very last snap. But reviewing personal fouls and roughing of the passer won't add much if any time to the contest in all reality but you are free to disagree

ok fine if that's what was meant but I doubt it would end up being that simple or quick as most add ons tend to get time consuming.
and officials don't want too much of their authority questioned time and again
How about instead of reviews they start calling the new offensive based penalties of rbs initiating contact with there hemlets like what injured reid, and maybe look into a penalty for qbs who initiate contact with there helmets to draw flags. NBA has rules and fines i believe for players who flop for fouls, do something like that in the league and and at least try to balance out the imbalance of defenselive penalties vs offensive penalties. That and i woild love to see two refs arguing mid field over a call on who was in the wrong the pass rusher or the qb.
So keeping the game moving is more important than getting the call right?
I agree that you should be able to challenge personal fouls, because the refs throw the flag without really knowing if there was helmet to helmet contact. But, itll never happen. It undermines the refs too much.
The real issue is the new Goodell rules. Either make the QB wear flags on his belt, or only call penalties for purposeful hits to the QB's head.

Your right lets not review any penalties that could help cost them games. Your right I'm with you.
Replaying and challenging penalties would stupid and definitely slow the game down to wear it could injure players more.
The real problem is the penalty itself
I agree some penalties suck, but challenging penalties wouldn't slow it down anymore than what it is now. Teams would have the same amount of challenges and the two most likely penalties that would probably be allowed is pass-interference and roughing the passer. IMO.
