Per Profootballweekly.com – no changes to the Week 12 schedule, the PIT/KC game will remain as the SNF game.

Same thing per the Steelers media site. SNF is unchanged.

When will they release who the referee crew is for the Chiefs/Steelers game on 11/27? Has anyone heard who it is yet?

Reply

The Steelers media site (which you need a password for) has that info usually available Tuesday or Wednesday of the game week.

Nita November 20, 2011 at 6:35 pm

I’m not sure what game popeye was watching but the redskins/cowboys was a very good officiated game. I wanted the redskins to win but I think the Hochuli crew again showed what class and intelligence they have on the football field.

Janna85 November 20, 2011 at 9:02 pm

I agree with you Nita. Ed Hochuli and crew showed class.

i 2 thought hochuli did a fine job as well, the only question i hav is that the winning field goal 4 the cowboys did not appeared to go inside of the goal post. what are your thoughts regarding this matter.

Preth:

Just heard from the team, and Pat is right. It WILL be John Parry, who did two Ravens games last year but none so far this season…

Reply

Preth November 21, 2011 at 12:16 pm

Hey, what’dya know? Thanks, Joe. Pat was wrong on at least three previous occasions, though, so he’s got a ways to go to earn credibility…

Reply

popeye November 21, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Nita, I believe Ed Hochuli and Carey are at the top of their games, however, flags were being thrown 3 to 5 seconds after the play was over. Ed wasn’t the one doing it, but it reflects on him. Maybe he needs to tightening up his crew.

Reply

popeye November 21, 2011 at 1:54 pm

I agreed J. Triplette doing a much better job. When is he coming to DC? He called a good game: Redskins vs. Tex in wk2 of last year.

Reply

EDOGG November 21, 2011 at 2:07 pm

Remaining referees available for MIA/DAL are: Blakeman, Carey, Corrente, Green, Leavy, and Morelli

Carey did a Thanksgiving Day game last year – I would suspect the NFL wouldn’t make him have 2 Turkey Day games in a row.

Remaining referees available for MIN/ATL are: Blakeman, Corrente, Green, Leavy, Riveron, Steratore, and Winter

Reply

Valdez November 27, 2011 at 2:07 pm

They didn’t. I’m gonna miss not seeing my favorite ref this week. Maybe I will catch a game with Mike C next week.

Reply

EDOGG November 21, 2011 at 2:18 pm

Remaining referees available for NYG/NO are: Boger, Blakeman, Leavy, Riveron, Steratore, and Triplette.

Blakeman is unlikely as that would be back-to-back MNF games.

Who is eligible for Bills/Jets? Why isn’t Riveron eligible? He has not worked a Bills game this year (regular season).

Reply

Kenneth November 21, 2011 at 9:53 pm

he is eligible. has only worked @Jets in week 1, and we’ve determined that multiple home games and both division matchups are not causal for assignments.

Reply

Art Rossi November 21, 2011 at 10:04 pm

This may sound like a silly question but who, if anyone, on this site has ever officiated a football game on any level? What about on the NCAA level? Who has ever studied the rule book or taken a mechanics test? Just wondering.

Reply

Kenneth November 22, 2011 at 10:10 pm

i’ve reffed basketball, football and soccer, albeit for a little amount of time, as I am only 20 years old. I can’t speak for anyone else, but when I say something about a particular referee, I am referencing the entire crew (except in the case of, say, Cheffers, who is god awful on the mic)

i think everyone is in agreement that these men are the top 17 (18 for a few positions) at what they do, it’s just apparent that some are better than others (i.e. Steratore’s and Blakeman’s are better than Triplette’s and Cheffers’)

Reply

Art Rossi November 23, 2011 at 2:01 am

Well you are off to a start. On what level have you officiated? It will be interesting to see if you have the same opinions 5 or 10 years from now. In any grouping, there are always going to be some that are better than others but in the NFL the spread is really very minimal except for one or two and they are not the ones that you mention. That is why certain Referees end up with stronger or weaker crews. There is always 1-2 rules experts on every crew and it is not always the guy in the white hat. It will be interesting to see the play-off assignments.

FYI for Art Rossi, I was a high school football official for 16 years. Actually worked with Jeff Triplette during the first 4 years as we were in college together. Health problems cut my career short.

This past sunday was Ron Winter’s first game in Baltimore since 2005. This sunday would be Winter’s first regular season game in Oakland also since 2005

Reply

Art Rossi November 22, 2011 at 2:47 pm

MEH – I am just trying to understand the basis for someone’s statement that “so and so is at the top of his game” or that “I don’t trust this Referee” unless they have ever been out on the field themselves. An officiating crew is not just the Referee. He is only sets the tone and makes the announcements in most cases. There are 6 other guys out there (and 2 in the Replay booth) and in some cases good Referees have poorer crews and vice-versa. I am glad that you have some experience and took the time to respond. I find it interesting that others have not.

Preth November 22, 2011 at 5:15 pm

In San Diego:

Scott Green’s crew, led by Jeff Triplette

Reply

Preth November 22, 2011 at 5:17 pm

Due to Green’s absence, Triplette is working Chargers games on consecutive weeks.

Reply

EDOGG November 22, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Is Scott Green injured?

Preth November 22, 2011 at 8:26 pm

I don’t know.

Reply

david November 22, 2011 at 9:09 pm

Preth, Is this a first ? Does this mean that Triplette can’t do any Charger games for 12 weeks ??? lol

Reply

Preth November 22, 2011 at 10:19 pm

No, it’s not a first. Bill Leavy missed a game between BUF-MIA a few years back due to illness, so as the only referee off that week, Bill Carollo took his place. It was the second straight week that Carollo worked a Bills game.

I do not think there are any limits as to how long it can be until Triplette works another SD game – however, he has already worked two Chargers games this season, so he cannot work another until next season.

Hi Mickey:
Carl Cheffers’ crew in the New Meadowlands Stadium this week (Buffalo Bills @ New York Jats, Nov.27, 01:00 PM, EST,)

Reply

Preth November 22, 2011 at 10:12 pm

By process of elimination, it appears as if Mike Carey will have ARI-STL. The only other game he could work is WAS-SEA, but it’s enough of a longshot that I’ve updated the list.

Reply

Josh November 22, 2011 at 10:52 pm

Correct me if I am wrong… the only remaining refs that could do the Monday Night game (NYG@NO) are…
Al Riveron
Gene Steratore
Walt Coleman

Reply

Preth November 22, 2011 at 10:55 pm

Eligible: Blakeman, Steratore, Riveron, Boger. Walt Coleman’s assignment has already been determined.

Reply

Preth November 23, 2011 at 12:55 am

Probably not. More likely, the crew for that game is either Clete Blakeman or Al Riveron.

Reply

MEH November 23, 2011 at 10:59 am

Art Rossi, I would really like to have the opportunity to talk with you about the “ins & outs” of officiating as you seem to know your stuff.

I started way back in 1969 & also officiated baseball & basketball in addition to football but did more football. Back in those days, we would work as a two man crew in some games – 3 man crew in others & then either a 4 man or 5 man crew for the high school games. I actually worked two games in my football career (one 8th grade & the other a 10 & 11 year old game) by myself. I would love to see some of these writers & announcers do that & then see what they have to say about the officials.

If you would like to continue our conversation, my email address is: oldrefs15@yahoo.com

Bronson November 23, 2011 at 4:23 pm

by process of Eliminations Tony Corrente has the Colts/Panthers he worked a Nyg/Phil Games in weeks 8 and 10 this is only a guess but from wat i see its the only game he would be able to ref

Reply

Preth November 23, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Why wouldn’t he be able to work the MIN-ATL or NE-PHIL games?

Reply

Avi November 28, 2011 at 12:29 am

Yes Corrente did work in Indy yesterday but it was confusing what Bronson said about the Giants-Philly thing. He did do the Giants in Week 10 but in Week 8 he did Bengals-Seahawks.

MIN/ATL – Steratore, Corrente, Riveron

CAR/IND – Corrente, Riveron

NE/PHIL – Boger, Corrente

NYG/NO – Boger, Riveron, Steratore

Reply

Preth November 23, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Riveron can work NE/PHI; Steratore can work CAR/IND

Reply

stevend November 23, 2011 at 8:28 pm

NYG/NO – Probably Steratore

Steratore has not officiated NYG or NO yet this year or any Monday night games.

Boger – officiated both teams and a Monday

Riveron – Monday game in week 8

No proof, but signs point to Steratore

Reply

Preth November 23, 2011 at 11:39 pm

Honestly, I’d say it’s about 35% Steratore, 35% Riveron, 30% Boger. Working a previous team assignment and primetime are both pretty unreliable indicators. Also, Steratore’s chances are harmed as well, as he’s worked two very recent Sunday primetime games.

Art Rossi November 24, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Because they are actually one of the better, higher ranked crews with 4 officials that have worked multiple Super Bowls. This is just a regualr week assignment but Mcauley is one of the best.

Reply

Avi November 28, 2011 at 12:35 am

Who are you referring to?, in response to Art Rossi’s post about them being one of the better, higher ranked crews. I’m writing this at the end of Week 12 so am not sure when you’d see it.

We don’t know. Most likely, he’s injured. That’s according to a post by Zebra Blog earlier today. (I don’t suggest visiting their site – there are multiple recent reports of viruses.)

Reply

Zebra Blog November 28, 2011 at 5:23 pm

Yeah, I spent a half a day and a couple of messages to tech support to clear that up. What a mess! Thanks for the mention.

A source with the league informed me that Scott Green is, in fact, injured. Does anyone recall anything out of the ordinary in Week 10 (BAL @ SEA), when Green last officiated?

Reply

Matrix81 November 28, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Question going back to last Monday nights game with the Giants and Eagles. Was this play ruled correctly by offsetting the penalties. The long completed pass to Jackson steps out of bounds and tosses ball at D Coordinator at the snap Illegal hands to the face by defense. Shouldn’t both penalties have been accessed one was live and the other was dead? Please help it’s still bugging me…lol
