Well, maybe for some. My remotes tend to go in places people are not allowed to be. Such as behind the goal in soccer, behind home plate in baseball/softball, etc. And sometimes they go in places that a person cannot physically be, Above the dugout, on the backboard in basketball, etc.
Assistants are useful, but remotes can be priceless.
