Mike pereira on USFL refs and rules

Post by herns »

“Via Mike Pereia on @greenlight

-Mike Pereira will be “a rules committee of almost one”
-Roughing the passer/hit on defenseless receiver will be reviewable
-Pass interference will be a 15 yard penalty if the spot of the foul was over 15 yards
DPI will be a spot of the foul penalty over 15 yards if the defender deliberately tackles the receiver
-32 of 35 officials are from the NFL Developmental List, “the next group up”“

Really like the PI being more like College - ie limited to 15 yds unless deliberate tackle. Getting a 40 yrd penalty in NFL is not a good thing

Like that NFL is working with the USFL (TSL may have done similar too?).

Good point but NFL likely gives blessing or encourages it... but we'll need confirmation.
