- does two referees work together most of the season or do they have several "partners" to work with?
- does a single referee only officiate in one conference?
-I believe their contract is between 70-80 games.
-Anywhere from $90k to $250k per season.
-Week of rest? Doubtful. Schedules are released monthly to the officials.
-Two referees might do a couple games in a row (IE: Friday in Anaheim, Saturday in LA), but as an official, you have to be able to work with everybody on the roster.
-No. All officials travel the entire league. That said, I believe linesmen may travel a bit less and are a bit more regionalized, but referees go everywhere.
