NFL Referee's Association has a list of offciating errors from the HoF game
The NFL Referee’s Association was paying close attention to Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game between the Arizona Cardinals and the New Orleans Saints. They wrote up a report to keep track of the officiating errors made during the game.
“Professional NFL officials are graded after every game,” NFLRA counsel Michael Arnold said in a release, per ProFootballTalk.com. ”Several of the NFL Referee Association’s officials who grade for Division-I college conferences did a review of the Hall of Fame Game working from a recording of the television feed. Normally, there would be an opportunity to also view the ‘Coaches’ Tape, which provides two views of every play, but multiple costly errors were still evident. Numerous errors in field mechanics, game administration and even the coin toss negatively impacted the quality of the game.”
The thing that really stuck out to me about Sunday night’s game is that there wasn’t one holding call made for the entire game. I wonder if they noticed the players that were mocking the bad officiating as the game went on.
