Watching the RF/Cologne game on Fox.

Coleman is the R. I think some non-NFL guys are also working. One deep guy messed up a TD call.

This is a nice fix.

nice fix? What do you mean?

I saw part of the game, but not what you mentioned.

Televised football. NCAA and NFL is in the off-season and since I'm in Canada, I do not see much AFL. The CFL doesn't start for 2-3 weeks, so a few NFLe games would be nice!

Ahh I didn't understand what you meant but I do now, and I agree.

Most of the officials in the NFLE are non-NFL officials. They are officials that are on the verge of making it to "the show". I think all referees are NFL officials, and on those crews where the referee is a new R, I think there is another NFL official.

In the past couple of years, I believe both Gerry Austin and Ed Hochuli (sp?) have worked NFLe.

I would jump at a chance to do "serious" football during the "offseason" (although I guess it isn't so off if you are working football during that time).

There are 15 NFL officials in NFLE this season. Austin is working this year, but not Hochuli. You'd probably recognize Walt Anderson (R #66) and some other guys too.

How do those guys manage to take a summer off to go officiate in Europe?

on Efaf wepsite there are some newsletters. In the newsletters there are a segment that is called weeks with Walt. I think that it is good reading..

The newsletter is intended to the EFAF oficials (the best officials in europe)

Thought I'd post the major rules differences between the NFL and the NFLEL:

MAJOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE NFL AND NFL EUROPE RULES

• Clock starts when the ball is spotted after an incomplete pass. After the 2 minute warning in the first half, and inside 5 minutes in the 4th quarter, the clock starts on the snap.

• Field goals from 50+ yards (spot of kick) are worth 4 points.

• 35/25 second play clock (40/25 in the NFL).

• Linemen may go downfield on a pass if the pass is touched behind the line of scrimmage.

• Pocket is not a factor in calling Intentional Grounding. As long as the ball lands in the vicinity (approx. 2 yards behind) of the line of scrimmage, it is not a foul, even if the quarterback was in the pocket.

• Head Coach may enter the field and go to the huddle during a team time-out.

• If game is tied after regulation, a 10 minute overtime period will be played. 4th quarter timing rules apply, both teams have 2 time-outs. Both team will have opportunity to possess ball, except if one team keeps the ball the entire 10 minutes and score on the last play of the game. After 10 minutes, game ends in a tie (except World Bowl). Opportunity to possess means either actual possession, a punt that is touched by receivers or a free kick that goes 10 yards or is touched by receivers. After both teams have had opportunity to possess, first team to score wins.

They only work 2 games and crews are rotated.

That's not correct. While it is true that there is a crew that work only two games, the standard is four games.

You go over for about 10-14 days, work two games, go home for some weeks, and then come back for another two games.
