After Further Review: Training Camp edition
Partial officiating squads traveled to training camps this week to explain the new rules and answer questions about interpretations.
- Bill Leavy was in Rams camp with FJ Boris Cheek, HL John McGrath, SJ Keith Parham. Also, HL Patrick Turner from the league’s developmental squad was in attendance [Joe Lyons/STL Post-Dispatch]
- Tony Corrente told the Broncos, “player safety will override any competitive aspect of the game.” (Link includes video made specifically for players to illustrate rules changes.) [Andrew Mason/Broncos]
- Ed Hochuli went to Brea, Ohio, to chat up the Browns. [Matt Florjancic/Browns]
- Gene Steratore was asked by the Redskins how the rules protect quarterback Robert Griffin III. [AP]
- Scott Green thought that the Eagles would not be affected by a point of emphasis that the offense cannot rush the snap before the officials are in position. [Jimmy Kempski/SBNation]
- Bill Vinovich told the Packers that Barry Sanders and Walter Payton were examples of runners who used their heads as battering rams for extra yardage. That hit is now illegal. [GB Press-Gazette]

The Score in Chicago (where Walter Payton played) is 670.
Thanks for the correction. And you will also please forgive the spelling of Payton that crept in, too.
