NFL has fired some of its worst officials, Hires First Female Official

The NFL has fired some of its worst officials.

Although NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino wasn’t quite that blunt in confirming it today, Blandino said “we moved on from” some officials who weren’t up to snuff.

“If an official isn’t performing up to the standards then they won’t be in the NFL,” Blandino said.

Blandino declined to name the officials who won’t be back, but those names are expected to become public soon.

“I won’t get into specific names. We are going to publish the roster toward the end of the month so you can look at the roster and probably figure it out,” Blandino said.

Asked how the NFL determined which officials won’t be back, Blandino said the officials are closely tracked, and if they’re consistently near the bottom of the league in their grades, they won’t be retained.

“Any official, in any competitive arena, could have a poor season, so one season may not necessarily cause us to terminate an official,” Blandino said. “But if it becomes a trend, multiple seasons, we have a tier-based ranking system, the third tier being the lowest performers. Once they enter Tier 3 we put them in an enhanced training regimen and put them in that program, and if we still don’t see improvement, that’s when we move on.”

Fine by me.

Although I feel misled because I assumed "officials" included all within the NFL, not just game time officials. So I came into this thread hoping, beyond all hope, that one Mr R S Goodell was somehow fired.

Congrats to her, I've heard the process to become one is very difficult so it's a great achievement.

Maybe having a woman on the sideline will help, they seem to never miss anything you do at home so she should get all the calls right! Lol

What took them so long? Some of these blind diots should have been fired years ago then again NFL doesn't do them any favors by changing 5-10 rules every offseason

She can't make worse calls than the men do.. right? Plus I'd sleep with her. She had a pretty decent throw with the football too

Do you think she'd make favorable calls toward the Saints if you slept with her?

She is from the South anyway. Maybe she's a Saints fan already...

No if I slept with her she'd probably leave thinking, Jesus... that's it? Welp, back to the Goodell plan. lol.

On second thought she may be a Saints fan, maybe I shouldn't mess that up sleeping with her

I bet she calls penalties that everyone already forgot about 5 years ago
