This is one of those plays that's easier to call from a distance than from on the field. At first, it looks like A might recover, but they held their whistles and the ball slips out. Then as the R...

Since you have newref as a name, allow me to say this. As an official, it is not up to you to decide if or how this is important. In other words, it's important because the wise and wonderfull...

If the running back goes in motion before the line has been set for at least one second after they go down, you will most likely have an illegal shift penalty. If the back starts too soon, the only...

According to the case book you should have blown it dead right away and then penalized USC. You can't let this play continue.

How many times will I call OPI when A blocks downfield? 100% of the time. Same with away from the ball.

If A88 goes down field and blocks, B knows that it's a run and breaks off coverage. A88...

I had it once - near the end of the half, R fair caught a short punt in good field postition with the wind at their back. It took a long time to set up - more for the receiving team than the kicking...

In your situation, the BJ would be the primary official responsible for this call.

I agree. It's important that we don't tell the coach that he needs to or should take the kid out of the game though. If we phrase it like that, and the coach takes the player out then any goof up...

In the earlier era, there was much less coverage on TV and less film review by supervisors and crews. Films had to be developed, shipped etc. and multiple camera angles, etc. weren't available.

I will allow a stat guy to come up into the coaches box to get the play from the coach but then he has to get back behind the 2 yard restraining line. No trainers, stat guys etc. - only 3 coaches. ...

That's my point - because he touched the line he is technically out of bounds. But I don't think you can call it illegal participation even if he impedes another player because he doesn't come back...

Yes but remember that a player can be both in bounds and out of bounds at the same time. For example, in scrambling for a ball, a player is lying on the ground and his legs are out of bounds and the...

No, but if I were a wing on the play I'd think maybe he actually was downed inbounds if that were at all possible. If not (A ran out on his own untouched) then let the game play out. Fair play is...

The rule says it's illegal if the QB intentionally thrown into an area where there is no eligible receiver. Based on the word "intentional", we have to judge intent. Since the player had a number...

I can't give you a hard yardage answer. Just tell the coach the player who was blocked was well out of the play and the hit was totally unnecessary.

If a player can't possibly get to the ball carrier before he gets to the goal line, he would be out of the play. It's simply a matter of judgment. That's why we get the big bucks.

Illegal touching by A80. 5 yard penalty plus loss of down so it would be 4th & 18 from A's 2 and a half.

Since 80 is normally an eligible number, the QB was under pressure and, for all we know...

Secondly, a first down is not an automatic clock stopper....

No that's not the case. DQ is a judgement call for the covering official just like every other call. For example, how could the WH decide whether a late hit out of bounds also merited a DQ when he...

I agree, your WH was very wrong in how he handled this. Call the foul and administer the required penalty. In this case it should have been 15 yards and a DQ.
