NFL changing procedure for evaluating officials

NFL changing procedure for evaluating officials

NEW YORK There is a new man in charge of overseeing NFL game officials, and Dean Blandino is bringing with him some tweaks that could affect how the so-called zebras are selected for coveted postseason assignments.

Blandino, now the league's director of officiating, has implemented a new evaluation process that goes beyond merely ranking officials based on the numeric grading system of previous years. Instead, it will group them in one of three tiers based on their performance. The top tier will be eligible to work playoff games.

Within each tier, the system is designed to allow Blandino and his eight supervisors to have more input in weighing intangibles such as how they aid other crew members.
Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, given a chance to climb, they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.

Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
