Exclamation Rumors fly that league may go with one-man officiating crews

The good news is that the replacement officials could soon be getting fired. The bad news is that the locked-out officials may stay locked out.

The in-between news is that the NFL may use only one official on the field to spot the ball and walk off penalties, with the rest of the officiating being performed in the booth by league employees watching TV monitors.

Thatís the current rumor making the rounds on the leagueís grapevine.

Itís just a rumor. But donít expect anyone from the league to admit that there may be any truth to it. After all, the league office has been telling owners and coaches what they can and canít say about the situation. Surely, no one will say that the NFL is considering such drastic action until the NFL decides to do it.

If they did it all with cameras, robots and lasers, that would be way cooler.

You could have the one guy spotting the ball and walking off penalties, who would be bossed around and told what to do by the robots. Then when you get to the goal line or out of bounds, a laser wall pops up and you break the plane. That would be awesome.

Re: Rumors fly that league may go with one-man officiating crews

Two things have stuck out about the replacements so far.

1. They call pass interference on almost every single intermediate-deep sideline pass. I don't know what it is, but they just can't keep the cloth in their pockets on these plays, no matter what.

2. They take 3-5 minutes to make an announcement after every flag is thrown... Make a call already!!!

I haven't been impressed with anything they've done, but that goes for any official. These two things have just been glaring problems in the preseason.

Totally agree.

If true... then if this isn't proof enough that Goodell is a total MEGALOMANIAC, I don't know what it will take for the dumber people of the world to "get it."

So expected calls to be missed for the league favourites.
Can't see how this works,TV replays will be behind game time and will not get the right point of view for some penalties.


Bad idea from the Kommisar

WOW, more proof that this power hungry, idiot of a commissioner needs some kind of checks and balance system to shoot down any idea that comes to his mind

I agree with all, how can this even have any truth to this.
