    Petition to Make NFL Referee Association’s Statistics Public
    Addressed to NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue & NFL Referees Association

    We the fans of the NFL have great respect for the sport, players and the league as a whole, but over the last couple of years there seems to be this growing trend of NFL field officials making bad calls. For example, this was the second week of the NFL playoffs and at times there were some crucial calls made/and not made that could have been considered as momentum swings.

    On behalf of the NFL fans I am submitting this official online petition to request that the statistics for the crews who officiate games during the season be made public on a weekly basis. I feel if the NFL officials’ statistics are out there for each crew on a weekly basis to the press and public there is a chance that these crews will better officiate the games.

    As for my definition of referee “statistics†the league could possibly use a slide bar method to show:

    1)Which crews call certain penalties more or less than others.
    2)Which crews have been challenged more or less by the coaches.
    3)Which crews have reviewed, and their finding percentage.
    4)An overall tally of penalties with yardage total called during a game.

    As a true fan of the NFL I hope that this petition will at least inspire some thought, and hopefully be decided upon before the 2006 or 2007 season.


    Sincerely,

    The link below will take you to the petition

    All NFL Refs make Mistakes in every game but this weekend was full of Obvious BS Calls... IMO the NFL only has 2 decent Refs Them Being Ed Hochuli and Mike Carey It's to bad they can't do every game

    Now people understand what I was talking about!

    Why is everyone so fired up about the officiating during the Super Bowl? This has been an ongoing thing. Something I've been touching base on all season, and finally did something about it after the Broncos game. Before Sunday my petition only had 452 signatures and now it's come to a head growing to 700 this morning!

    If you are serious sign the ORIGINAL petition to show you are not just upset about the Super Bowl.

    as you know, the nfl has generated the stats you suggested on every official, game by game, for quite some time now. to accomplish that i asume that the league reviews every play of ever game, every week, to generate a numerical performance score for each official. the NFL supervisor of officials and his staff go over this with referees, every so often.
    according to nfl, the officials with the highest ratings get to work playoff games. and only the officials with the very highest rating at their invidual positions (back judge, head linesman, referee) get to work the SB and the all-star game.
    that's why the SB was so bizarre. those guys, as individuals, haven't missed those calls like that all g0ddam season.
