    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.

    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?

    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.

    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

    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” ??

    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.

    Would you look at that. It’s not even the Hall of Fame Game yet, and when I checked, it seems NFL Ops had *already* posted the 2016 rule book (with PDF and summary of changes). Someone should buy someone a root beer for this. :D

    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.

    Hey Lmao R1mfao! Learn how to spell you “bleeping” idiot! One of the few words you spelled correctly in your comment was the “Fword”. That’s really sad! I’m guessing you dropped out of school right after the first grade.

    Late in the first half of the Miami/Houston Thursday Night game on 11-25, the Miami quarterback was being sacked and driven down and pushed back simultaneously. He whipped the ball around his body on a release, almost a weird 180 motion. The play ran, Houston scooped up the loose ball, and scored a touchdown. On review, the play was nullified as an incomplete pass. I don’t have any problem with calling it an incompletion per se, but when I saw it live, and then on review, it looked to me like this was a backwards pass with the momentum of the arm whipping around with the loose ball, and the ball should have been considered live. Should this have been a backwards pass? I’m a high school football official.

    The above game situation was, of course, on Thursday, 10-25, not November. Sorry about that.

    for a fair catch kick, the crew goes into free kick mechanics. Who do the put under the goal posts?

    After the Jets/Patriots today, I noticed that several Patriots made it a point to go up to the Referee (Walt Coleman) and shake his hand. Two reasons for that, 1) Coleman was retiring after that game, and 2) He was the referee who made the famous “Tuck Rule” call in 2000. It started the Pats Dynasty.
