While the National Football League has its difficulties on and off the field, I am proud to have been an NFL on field official for 31 years. I met some wonderful players and coaches as well as officials during my 57 year association with the league. I was fortunate to have officiated four Super Bowl games as well as 10 championship games and 25 Monday Night Football games, which during my career was the only night game played.
Closing out the night, NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” featured Washington’s surprising 27 10 blowout of the Oakland Raiders, which had entered the game a three point road favorite. The lopsided game (the Raiders eked out just 128 total yards to the home team’s 472) averaged an 11.6 overnight rating, down 10 percent versus the year ago Bears Cowboys broadcast. That game, which was also anticlimactic, adjusted to 20.6 million viewers and a 11.7 household rating in the final live plus same day tally..

Included in those three losses was a thoroughly unimpressive performance in the 2015 postseason at Gillette Stadium. Smith threwfifty passesthat day, completing 29 of them but for just 246 yards. That a 4.92 yard average per attempt, which is historically bad.
I tell the scientific community, that if you can give us a class, we can take it and publish it and build a web service out of it. So far, I’m impressed. As much as I like Typepad, I’ve never liked the default post editor that much. “We’ve had female referees, female owners and gender crossing roles all over the place, so this was bound to trickle down,” Linn said. “The only blurry line right now is that (Welter has) only been hired as a summer intern, but she’s probably got plenty of experience. Until you’ve been in a locker room, you never know, because that’s just a different kind of atmosphere.”.
