It takes that long for the crew to put all of that together. Plus more time for the third umpire to look through all of the various pieces of evidence.
If it were instantaneous, I'd agree with you.

I really hope Tendulkar is the victim of diabolical umpiring in South Africa. Would be absolutely hilarious to see the fallout.
AWTA. As much I want to see India win in South Africa, they need another series like the one down under. Tendulkar to be given out shockingly on 99, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0.
Let's see if that doesn't change his mind.
