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.”

Pat and Ed,I may not have been clear with my question. I was not referring to Eli running a 2 minute offense all game. I understand Pat's point about. My point is exactly as it seems. If we are going to run the 11 offense 90% of the time. Just let Eli...

Well, what they have been doing hasn't been working.  At even a fundamental level.   So they're gonna have to change something up, one way or another.  I don't care how strong Pugh is, if he can stand on two feet and get in the way of the DE he'll be a...

I don't think the Giants can do anything other than what they are doing now.This notion that Pugh is a left tackle and a good one at that is not shared by me or the coaching staff. He struggled at right tackle last week reminding us that his lack of l...

Big Blue View

Thursday night was the most entertaining game of the year; let’s hope it spells a league-wide shift from the awful play of the first two weeks of the season. Not only was the game entertaining, but packed with fantasy goodness! Cheers to all the readers who started Gurley, Watkins, Garcon and Hyde. Bravo. On to starts and sits! Starts Buck Allen, RB, BAL From a waiver wire add to an RB2 in the blink of an eye, Allen looks here to stay. The only healthy RB in Baltimore will continue to be fed in the passing game, making him especially juicy...
