    Default Additional Officials Needed


    0 Not allowed!
    I wonder if we don't need a couple more zebras on the field for games.

    Replay is nice and works the way it is, but with so many missed calls, I wonder if adding a couple of officials would make the game better.

    I wonder is adding another back judge would be helpful for pass interference calls.

    I also wonder how an additional referee, perhaps and assistant referee would help in protecting the quarterback from late hits.

    Your thoughts?



    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!

    They do this in baseball...I'd say it doesn't work too well:

    There are so many missed calls as it is. This would lead to more calls and just slow the game down.

    I don't know if that will help or not really.

    Not sure but bad calls have cost the Chiefs 2 games so far. I have a feeling it's not going to get better. They need to be able to overturn bad interference calls and holding calls.

    The correct solution is allow pass interference calls to be reviewable.

    I agree with Hometeam. Maybe any call by a ref should be reviewable.

    While it would be nice, that would make games take about 10 years. Just can't do it.

    I agree that the NFL should make it where pass interference calls can be reviewed. How you keep it in check is by making it where it can only be reviewed inside of 2 minutes.

    I'm with you on that ..Spot On!! For the first three quarters a team can overcome a PI...Late in the fourth is a different story..It should be automatic given the stakes that a PI effectively wins the game...The refs have too much power to decide a game on a call that at times is very questionable..No team should have to play their butts off for 58 minutes just to have a part time attorney dressed in a zebra uniform make a bogus call that end your game
