REPORT: NFL Considering Major Change To Officiating That's Long Overdue

REPORT: NFL CONSIDERING MAJOR CHANGE TO OFFICIATING THAT'S LONG OVERDUE

BY V. CARBONNEAU
Refereeing in the NFL is not a full-time job as the season does not last all year. However, starting in 2019, the average NFL referee salary was set at $205,000 per year. This was an increase of around $56,000 from their previous amount.

Here is what Mike Florio reported a few days ago on the subject of NFL full-time refs:

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the push for full-time officials is gaining some traction.

That doesn't mean it will happen or that it will be as clear and clean as all officials immediately devoting full professional efforts to officiating. The league may allow (for example) the officials who currently moonlight to continue to do so, with new officials being required to take full-time jobs with no other professional responsibilities.


Regardless of when it finally happens that all officials are full-time employees, it needs to happen. The officials should all live in the same city. They should meet in person every Tuesday and/or Wednesday to review and discuss calls collectively, to ensure consistency
