fundamental change why
Fundamental change: Why?
  • Games are too long
  • TV audience vs. in-stadium audience
  • Decisiveness
  • Game flow
  • Professionalism
the process
The Process
  • Calling Official
  • Referee
  • Umpire
  • Head Linesman
  • Line Judge
  • Everyone else
calling official
Calling Official
  • Preliminary signal
  • If there are multiple flags for the same foul, they talk quickly, then one gives a signal
  • Accurate number
  • Result of the play
  • Make decision for the team if obvious
  • Preliminary signal only if option from team or crew discussion necessary
  • Rarely more than 3 steps to “clear”
  • Stop, then talk
  • Speak to the guy sitting on his couch in front of the TV
  • Don’t say more than necessary, an incorrect description lowers credibility (say as much as possible using as few words as possible)
  • Speak in a normal tone of voice, don’t raise your voice if the crowd is loud
  • Finish speaking before turning away from the camera
  • Must be able to enforce most fouls with minimal referee input!
  • Specific yard line should be quickly discussed on half-the-distance penalties
  • Communicate/signal distance with wing officials

(confirmation #3)

  • Do not wait for confirmations to give ready
  • Do not rush the ready for play if the QB is communicating with the coach
  • Don’t delay ready too much either
  • The goal is *efficiency*, not having the fastest game
  • Minimize the time two or more officials are on TV having a discussion
  • Ideal situation is when the umpire is putting the ball down as referee completes his announcement
If TV break is coming after foul, go to commercial, THEN deal with any enforcement issues
  • Most pre-snap fouls will require no discussion at all. Referee should easily pick up obvious numbers
Referee fouls: announce as soon as possible after the play is over. If an option will be needed from the team, give preliminary as soon as possible
  • This process can cut 30 seconds or more from the dead ball period
  • For an average 15 foul game, that is about 7 ½ minutes
  • All this is done without eliminating a single play from the game
