For those with NFL Network...(sorry Pats1): NFL Total Access got Mike Pereira, VP of Officiating to discuss the Command Center they started using four years ago. Typical Command Center if you've never been inside one of any kind, consoles and monitors wherever you look. They have a live feed of every game going in there to track what is happening on the field with regard to officiating and discipline issues. Apparently the networks call directly into the Center for an explaination of the rules which they can then share with fans watching the broadcast. Pereira claims he gets 5-6 calls/weekend from the networks on officiating decisions and that he has a direct line to each broadcast crew so he can reach them if he wants to update them on something they are discussing on-air. The Operations staff has now gotten involved, using the facility to track weather systems and communicate with the stadiums to ensure safety and game management. They make up a briefing DVD each night for the Commissioner with video and details on injuries, controversies, and disciplinary concerns. Monday-Wednesday they now breakdown every play of every game to track the officiating and see if it was handled properly - wouldn't we like to see those score cards? Pereira claims he started this so he would be ready to field Monday morning phone calls from the coaches, but I have to wonder if the terrorism/security environment of a large crowd had any impact on the decision. If you missed it, set your DVRs before you head out to work.
