Prepare to get angry, NFL fans who already think games are over-officiated. According to CBS Sports NFL insider Charley Casserly, the league prefers that officials "err on the side of caution when penalizing a player for a defenseless hit."
"Furthermore," Casserly said Saturday on The NFL Today, "they've also been told that they will not be downgraded if they make a mistake in this area. The reason: the NFL does not want [them] to hesitate on making this kind of call.
"Now personally, I disagree with this," Casserly said. "When I was on the competition committee, we told the officials: 'If you see it, call it. If you don't see it, don't think that you saw it. Don't call it in that situation.' Our feelings: let fines alter behavior."
With all of the controversial calls this season regarding defenseless players being hit, Charley Casserly spoke with James Brown about what is being done to solve this ongoing issue.
