    How can the NFL improve officiating?

    A lot of complaining (as is usual), but I'm not sure how you improve the officiating. The game is organized chaos, and those of us watching it on television have the benefit of replay, etc.

    How would you improve it?

    You can't improve humans. They'll always have a flaw. Some people like the officials/refs are the best judges in their respective sports.

    Have you legit ever tried to ref/officiate a sport yourself? If you can handle it, you're a natural, you should go pro and become criticized all the time cuz that's what will happen.

    If you can't, like me, you just stay away and admit how hard it must be for them to make calls. But still criticize them when they make bad ones.

    Officials will never be praised for a good call, only criticized for bad ones

    You really can't improve officiating.

    I agree. I figured when people really thought about it, it's almost impossible to improve...unless we're talking about more technological advances (as in determining placement of the ball, etc).

    i dont get how stupid you can be, this year ive seen so many times where a play in our eyes should get over turned on replay but never does..Does that not raise any red flags in anyones eyes..The NFL makes tons of money and helping sportsbooks out at times gets them by too..Such bs like gambling wise its such a fun sport but its a big joke when it starts becoming obvious

    Do you mean "you" as in the collective, or is this for someone specific? Either way, I don't understand your post. I feel confused.

    Idk if that's sarcastic because of his call in the Chargers game but he is by far my favorite referee
