NFL adjusts postseason officiating procedure


I hope this fixes some of the issues that have plagued the officiating of the postseason, in the past. If this change pans out, maybe they can take steps to fix the awful officiating that has swept the NFL for the last few seasons.

“The specific language of the approved change states: For the 2015 Postseason, consultation may occur between the Referee and the VP of Officiating or his designee located in the league’s officiating headquarters in New York regarding the correct application of playing rules. In addition to the VP of Officiating’s current role in Instant Replay, this consultation will only include the appropriate assessment of penalty yardage, the proper administration of the game clock, the correct down, or any other administrative matter not currently reviewable. This will not include the ability to call or change a foul, or otherwise become involved in on-field judgment calls that are not subject to the current Instant Replay system.” – Reported by NFL.COM
