NFL weighs ejections for rudeness against quarterbacks

IRVING, Texas ( Associated Press) — The NFL is considering ejecting players who commit rough offenses against quarterbacks or hit defenseless players, though league executive Troy Vincent was cautious about how those penalties would be implemented. will be implemented.

Vincent, a former player, told NFL owners’ meetings on Wednesday that the expulsions were one of the issues discussed. Another issue addressed was the possibility of reviewing quarterback rough penalties on video replays.

“I have to say the officials have been pretty consistent and accurate in pointing this out,” said Vincent, the league’s vice president of sports operations. “But they’re human.”

Vincent said no changes to the case would be confirmed until the holiday before the next campaign. He said any changes would have to be weighed against the length of matches and other factors.

“It’s a personal foul, and there are a lot of fouls in that category,” Vincent said. “Where for this? I repeat: The single most impact play in American football is pass interference. Now we begin to cover personal fouls, but that’s why we’ll be discussing it. I am looking forward to this conversation.”

Vincent said that the replay center would continue to assist referee decisions that had already been made, rather than make decisions for itself.

The NFL reviewed pass interference for only one season before reversing the decision.

Vincent said, “I think striving for perfection is a dangerous goal for the NFL and quite frankly for refereeing.” “And that’s what happens with cameras and replays. You start looking for perfection, which is not good for the game.”
