    Replay has made refs gun shy and trigger happy at the same time and you can't unring that bell

    Controversial calls are not going away....... this is a meaningless move

    Are you really going to use the false equivalence of officials to players? The only way they will gain more power is if the NFL gives it to them. They can be replaced... and, given their reputation with the fans and how those same fans like to complain about how the refs screwed their team over.... nobody, and I mean nobody, will care.

    Great addendum Alex, what's the background on one: Alberto Riveron ?
    I'm surprised I've not caught wind of him till now, as he does have a flash/ catchy name,and like bright shiny objects I usually take note.
    ( I'm sure he hit the scene after blandino bounced, but what's his ' bonafideies'?)

    Same thing NFL players do with their other 36 hours.

    There is only so much to learn ........ high school kids can learn the rulebook...... re-reading the same book over and over is pointless

    Anyone who thinks controversial calls will go away is naive. I think it sends a message to the players and fans (and the referees themselves) that the NFL considers the officials' impact on the game important and is taking them seriously. I think it also gives the NFL the opportunity to define or redefine its relationship with the officials. I don't know if they'll make the most of that opportunity, but now's the time to change something if they want to.

    I wouldn't call what they trot out on Thursday, Sundays, and Monday as quality.

    Having read this nothing will change in 2017 there's only a going to be a few new full-time officials 24 out of 124.
    One full-time guy for each crew is what it looks like.
    what they should do is have one all full-time crew and then compare their performance with the part-time crews.

    And $78.000 isn't enough for full-time.
    They make that now part time!

    I use "Droopy voice" to disarm my wife when she's triggered. It still works.

    I wonder if this will cause any turnover of the current refs? Some might have more lucrative jobs they would have to give up.
