Football is a tough sports to officiate as well, but theres 7 refs on the field and constant breaks in the action. Its a distant 2nd to hockey in terms of difficulty to officiate.
The conversation was never about which sport was most difficult to officiate. Soccer could easily take the cake in that discussion with one ref on the field.

Hockey, you get two refs and a linesman at all times to watch players. You have three guys to cover 10 players(11 if you want to count the goalie). Despite the fact that Hockey is fast, its not fast all the time. You also have WAY more parity and subjectiveness on how rules are to be enforced in Hockey.

Football you have 22 players and a MUCH more stringent convoluted rules system, with players going full speed every play. There is an infraction on almost every football play.

Is football as physically demanding on refs as hockey? No, its not. But football refs have to keep on an eye on a larger group of players who can extend over a larger playing area with more difficult rules to enforce.

Personally, I think the difficulty to officiate the sports is about the same between football and hockey. But the quality of officials is MUCH higher with the NFL than the NHL. Hell, there are linesman in the NHL than can't even properly call an offsides.

Why is everyone obsessed with Ed Hochuli? Because he's jacked like a linebacker?

Kellen Winslow has been released at his own request. Apparently Hernandez is recovering well.

Looks like the Dream is a no go for Sunday's game.

Hopefully it's just mind games, but I doubt it.

UB Just ran a 50 yard hook and ladder

That better be on the SC Top 10 tomorrow.

edit - meant to put this in the OT- OT thread. But I guess it fits here because it's football related? Mods can move or delete, whatever you fancy

Geno Smith and Stedman Bailey are amazing. Whoever drafts Geno in the top 10 needs to get a 2nd first round pick and grab Bailey.

There is not another QB/WR combination with chemistry like they have.

Pat Miller is just killing WVU. Seriously needs to be benched next week. Every single big play for Baylor is against Miller. He is not NCAA caliber, even. What a joke that he is still the starter.

Anyone see my hometown Stony Brook Seawolves beat Army 23-3? Well they did, almost beat Syracuse a couple weeks back too, I could see Stony Brook in D-1 in like 5-10 years, they look good.

Geno Smith doesn't put up video game numbers. Video games put up Geno Smith numbers.
