A LOOK AT THE NFL OFFICIATING CHANGES PT 1

Each year the NFL rulesmakers tweak the rules in most part to address situations that arose during the season and, at least lately, to improve player safety. The changes often take two forms: a) new or revised rules and b) changes to the wording contained in the rule book intended to clarify existing rules. [A further mechanism are the Points of Emphasis that that are issued to the officials and shared with the team to highlight situations that require further attention from the officials. One such situation last year was the setting of picks by offensive receivers that should be (and were) called as Offensive Pass Interference.]  Given the number of such changes this year, I will address them in two separate postings.   

 

Specifically, the rules changes are as follows:

 

4-5-1 and 4-6-5 - Makes it a foul for delay of game when a team timeout is erroneously granted.

A LOOK AT THE NFL OFFICIATING CHANGES

by BayAreaGiants (Al)


It is almost time to play football again and time to take a look at some of the changes that have (or haven't) been made related to NFL officiating during the off season. 

NFL Front Office Changes 

Despite the assumptions of some and the claims of many, the discipline (i.e., fines and suspensions) that is handed down weekly to NFL players is not the work of Roger Goodell but a committee within the NFL office previously headed by Merton Hanks, the ex-49er and reporting to Troy Vincent, Executive Vice President of Football Operations. Both Hanks and Vincent, as well as the other members of the committee are ex-players.

Hanks left his position with the NFL during the offseason and the league has announced that Jon Runyan has been appointed to a newly created position of vice president of policy and rules administration. Among his duties, Runyan will serve as the executive in charge of on-field discipline — namely, fines and suspensions — with the approval of the executive vice president of operations and the commissioner. Runyan will also “oversee club and game-related initiatives related to players … and also supervise the Uniform and Protective Equipment Inspection Program.”

This feels like a sort of perfect storm type of situation here, which is kinda what it takes for the Giants to win a game these days.  The wind neutralized the passing game quite a bit for KC, and their QB while good isn't exactly known for his arm str...

That's true probably do deserve to lose if you miss it.  But given you just missed an XP on a supremely windy day.  Why not take 1 more down?

Rookie kicker makes two critical kicks in tough conditions New York Giants’ placekicker Aldrick Rosas has been having a miserable time the past few weeks. Entering Sunday, he was just 10-of-15 on field goals and had missed kicks in five straight games. The day turned out to be a miserable one to be an NFL placekicker. Gusty winds between 20 and 30 miles per hour, sometimes gusting higher than that. Rosas first kick, an extra point, got caught up in the wind, basically stopped, and flew off to the right of the uprights. No good. To add to...
