I’m glad the NFL is finally doing something about the poor officiating, this season. But, does this come too late in the season? And does reassigning the mistake-prone Refs to another game solve anything? Since, they have been reassigned, to the Eagles vs Patriots, the NFL probably thinks they cannot screw this game up, with officiating.
“In yet another example of the NFL punishing referees for mistakes made during a game, the league has reassigned referee Pete Morelli and his crew, a person familiar with the decision told NFL Media’s Albert Breer on Tuesday. Morelli’s crew was scheduled to work Sunday night’s tilt between the Indianapolis Colts and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but they will now officiate an afternoon game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts.” – Reported by Around The NFL Staff
