Rumors fly that league may go with one-man officiating crews
Posted by Mike Florio on August 20, 2012, 2:22 PM EDT

The good news is that the replacement officials could soon be getting fired. The bad news is that the locked-out officials may stay locked out.

The in-between news is that the NFL may use only one official on the field to spot the ball and walk off penalties, with the rest of the officiating being performed in the booth by league employees watching TV monitors.

That’s the current rumor making the rounds on the league’s grapevine.

It’s just a rumor. But don’t expect anyone from the league to admit that there may be any truth to it. After all, the league office has been telling owners and coaches what they can and can’t say about the situation. Surely, no one will say that the NFL is considering such drastic action until the NFL decides to do it.

Given the performance of the replacement officials, it makes plenty of sense to consider drastic action.

From our perspective, we’ve got no problem with it. Technology has advanced to the point where the game can be called from a place other than the field.

GREAT IDEA! A whole entire crew of officials can't seem to get their heads out of their asses and get calls right a good portion of the time. I'm sure one single idiot running around on the field keeping tabs on 22 guys at once and covering 100 yards of territory should fix everything right up! An idea born of pure genius!

I think it would be extremely interesting. I'm willing to give it a go and see how it ends up. It'll be like football, but Mad Max style and shit.
