On the roster, or on the ice?

IMHO, it should have been "touching the passer" . tR:oLl

Thanks, Ralph. Can you give us a hint as to whether this is a rule change "heavy" or "light" year?

Question : How many players on an ice hockey team ?

Answer : The same number as potential rule changes.  :)

Any chance the rules language and Case Book plays could be vetted here before publication?

Rules language : YES
Case plays : Not currently on the Editorial Committee, I don't see them until you see them.

I'm willing to bet that the NFL has instructed the officials to call RTP fouls strictly, and the referee or the umpire thought that the hand hit the QB's helmet. It definitely did not and there is no other contact that qualifies as RTP, as far as I understand the NFL rules.

Officials make mistakes, just like players do. It may be that the helmet part was simply missed and the covering official thought that the pass itself was uncatchable (it really wasn't, IMO).

A group of us were invited to work scrimmages in the SEC. Key word being,  invited. In particular, I drove from Tampa to Gainesville to participate. No pay .....You learned that you were evaluated in each session.

One of our Association Members was invited to join the SEC, after being evaluated in a State Championship game. Unfortunately, maybe fortunately, I became a Regional Sales Manager with a lot of traveling involved and left officiating for 5 years.

EXCELLENT POINT.
If guys dont see a call the same way, they can take the time to GET IT RIGHT.

i.e. I was U for a 7-man playoff crew several years ago. off-tackle play to the H side of the field. H flags the A tackle for holding B at the point of attack.
i pulled him over for who he had. he said the tackle.
I told him I saw it differently & the A that tackle driving the B player back as they passed by me (that's how much the tackle was overpowering the B player).
He stook with his call. (even though I disagreed)

But we talked about it and (hopefully) GOT IT RIGHT

Exactly, talk, discuss ... you can't imagine the number of times everyone wants to stand around in silence. That's the sales manager in me ...I have something to say all the time.

What's an inadvertent facemask?

I touched it but didn't mean to?

My White Hat would ask "Did he grab the mask or opening of the helmet? Yes? Did it move his head? Yes? Ain't nothing inadvertent about that at all." "See me after class, you have some splainin to do."

Wait, you had a locker room for a F game we just arrive already dressed...

We get a locker room for color games and scrimmages. You guys have bad contracts. LOL!
