NFL Could Hire Full-Time Officials

Every team in the league has been on the bad end of a call. The criticism of late has come from the fact that the NFL does not hire full-time officials like other professional leagues do.

In a question-and-answer session with fans before Sunday’s game between the Texans and Ravens, Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the league will consider hiring full-time officials.

“Consistency is exactly what every club wants, and I think every fan wants,” Goodell said, via the Associated Press.  “You want consistency in the way rules are applied.  We are contemplating this offseason taking some of those officials from the field who are now part time — they have other jobs — and making a certain number of them, let’s say 10, full time.” – Pro Football Talk
