Simplify the rules. That's what's recommended for the NFL.

Maybe the Major Baseball League (MBL) can learn a lesson intended for the National Football League (NFL).

A Solution for Awful N.F.L. Officiating? Simplify the Rules
by Gregg Easterbrook The New YorkTimes
T.M.Q. — TUESDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK DEC. 15, 2015

Can't anybody referee this game?


Officiating gaffes continue to be a story line of the 2015 N.F.L. season, and the problem is not just human error.

Football rulebooks are too complicated ...

Rulebook simplification would improve officiating. As for replay review, how about making it blind? If the reviewing official did not know what call was made on the field, he or she wouldn’t have observer bias.
