NFL Names Alberto Riveron Head of Officiating

I wish I could tell you I had some kind of insightful, complicated analysis of this move, but I don't. Alberto Riveron will move from the field to the head office to replace Dean Blandino, at least partially. The league also has announced Russell Yurk will head up the league’s replay department, so he's the guy who will be in charge of the central decision-making on replay every Sunday.

Should be better fhan fean bland ink. He sort of sucked. Especially since was on boat ride with jerry Jones drinking booze and talking and lookign at things and catching fish and whatever else men do on boats. So then He goes on NFL netwrok every week to explain calls and say that ref got it wrong annt this one got it right and we maybe need to examine this rule in offseason blah blah blah blag blah.
