NFL officials' observers...

Check this out. (And thanks to Swankette for sending it to me.)

Much to my surprise, in addition to the massive experts scrutinizing every ref's move while in the stadium, there are even guys from the mailroom who help look at the game four or five times to ensure clean play and quality officiating.

It could be worse. You could be the guy assigned to be the NFL Fashion Cop.

Funny story -- my husband covers the Vikings. Even the coaches have to conform to the rules. Mike Tice ALWAYS wears a black turtlenect. One game, he was supposed to wear a white Reebok turtleneck, but he thought it made him look fat, so he wore a no-name black one. The league called him on it, and he explained the situation. The NFL contacted Reebok and they now have turtlenecks in black...
