  1. Early in the 2012 season on Monday night the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks when the Packer defender appeared to have intercepted the pass in the endzone. There was actually 2 calls one call which was for the reception and subsequently a touchdown and the other was for the interception. Why is it that the interception call seemed to be completely ignored? And the other call the only call that was recognized. Both calls seemed to be made by officials.

  2. I read taht the NFL can hire seven new, non-union officials a year. But with a roster of 121 and a workforce that must have anaverage age of around 50 turnover is probably over seven a year. So does the NFL hire seven non-union officials and then a couple union officilas at more money. Becasue I bet you the non-union guys will make less. Does anyone know how that will work?

  3. My guess, and granted, it’s only a guess, is that seven CURRENT NFL officials will be asked to become full-time officials. I don’t think they will expand their roster to 128 officials.

  4. Where is 2013 rule book and case book? Can you get the spiral bound copies from nfl. I used to send away for them. In January you answered my question about the roster and numbers of all the officials like they are in the rule book you indicated that you will be doing a page for each set of officials this year. Will it happen? Thank you

  5. The Holmes “Fumble” VS. the 49ers has been, and continues to be, a HOT topic of discussion in our Jets Blog!!

    Can you please give us the Official decision on this play and whether or not it could’ve been considered a “pass to the enemy” ??

  6. You need to (a) go to the NFL website and they have a set procedure to follow–you at least have to have 10 years in at the hs/college/semi-pro level (verifiable), and (b) submit a resume. Good luck.

  7. Fellas who of you play Pokemon GO? Amazing game, yesterday i caught rare pokemon Magmar using pokebusterbot !
    No ban so far, still using it. You should too.

  8. Why wasn’t the obvious pass interference call made at the end of the Atlanta- Seattle game? Why wasn’t it overruled by the head Ref? Cost Atlanta the game? Total shame.

  9. Can refs do their job when the raiders move to vegas. Argument amongst friends theres a rule refs cant go near gambling sites around regular season games. Anyone got an answer? Thanks
