Petition to Roger Goodell

NFL Should Allow A "No Call" To Be Challenged By Coaches

The NFL owes it to their fans to provide them with fairly officiated football games.  Too often outcomes of games are decided by "Missed" or "No Calls" that clearly should have been called.  Why even have such a sophisticated Replay System to not be able to use it to make sure calls that need to be made are?  As lovers of the sport of football, we ask that you, Mr. Goodell, implement a rule where an NFL Head Coach would be allowed to challenge a missed or no-call on a "Helmet to Helmet" hit or a blatant "Pass Interference" and if the challenge is won, an appropriate penalty is rendered, thus correcting an outcome determining factor in realtime.  A prime example is the 2019 Championship Game in New Orleans where a New Orleans Saints player received a helmet to helmet hit, with a referee looking on, but no penalty was called, thus directly impacting the results and costing a team a shot in the Super Bowl.  In addition, allowing the opposing player to get away with a hit that could be life threatening to another player in a worse case scenario.  Occurances like this are an utter disrespect to the sport, and most of all to the fans who spend billions of dollars in support of our beloved teams.  There needs to be realtime checks and balances on referees, as they are running checks and balances in realtime on the game in progress.  Another option would be to have a referee off-field specifically using replay technology to oversee the calls and with the authority to relay a missed call to the refs on the ground who might not have caught it.  Mr. Goodell, please consider these changes.  The players and fans deserve it.

New Orleans Saints Playoff "Re-do"

The referees for the New Orleans Saints NFC Championship game on 1/20/2019 missed at minimum TWO egregious penalties on one play; a pass interference and helmet-to-helmet. Either penalty would’ve given the Saints first-and-goal inside the 10 yard line. If the LA Rams defensive player, Nickell Robey-Coleman, WAS penalized (as he should have been), this one call could have dramatically changed the outcome of the game!   The NFL does have a mechanism that could, theoretically, give the Ne Orleans Saints another shot at going to the Super Bowl after the league ADMITTED the officials blew the call on a play late in the NFC Championship that should have been called pass interference AND a helmet to helmet hit on the Rams. Read on!  SECTION 2 EXTRAORDINARILY UNFAIR ACTSARTICLE 1. COMMISSIONER AUTHORITY. "The Commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriatedisciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club action, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game." (source:  operations.nefl.com/media/3277/2018-nfl-rulebook_final-version.pdf)  So what can corrective measures can the commissioner take?  "The reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game, either from the beginning or from the point at which the extraordinary act occurred." In a phone call with New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton, the NFL ADMITTED they missed calling the penalty!  "After the game, Saints head coach Sean Payton said he spoke with representatives from the NFL about the missed penalty against the Rams on Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis, and he said that the league admitted to him that the call was blown and that Los Angeles should have been penalized." (source: 247sports.com)  There is a rule that allows for the NFL Commissioner to call for a re-do!  We may still lose but we deserve the chance to try! Let's share and demand a re-do!
