NFL Officiating Crisis sign now

We the fans of the NFL after watching perhaps one of the most horrendous officiating this season, and especially during the 2005 Playoffs and Super Bowl XL, call upon the NFL to take serious action to remedy the situation.

It is now apparent that instant replay, while a necessary tool, has become too ambiguous and subjective in it's use. The entire process needs to be revisited and improved, including the ability to review any type of play regardless of what is called on the field. These would include, but not limited to, plays such as pass interference, delay of game, and holding. The number of times a Coach can review a play should be increased. The limitations currently penalize coaches, teams and the game in general instead of the people that make the incorrect call.

Furthermore, there needs to be more accountability placed on the officiating crew. While full time officials may or may not be the answer, those involved need to clearly understand the game, the rules and the impact their calls may have on the outcome of a game. The NFL should also be required weekely to make public all mistakes that occured during the previous weeks games including all apologies made to the affected teams.

Although some of these decisions will take time, we the fans of the NFL call for the immediate firing of the entire NFL officiating crew for Super Bowl XL. The officiating during Super Bowl XL was not only some of the most irresponsible but also had serious consequences which directly impacted the final outcome.

We look forward to the NFL's immediate attention in this matter.
