Default NFL issues warning on conduct

The NFL reached out to the owners, general managers and coaches of all 32 teams this week to advise them that the type of on-field behavior it witnessed last weekend will not be acceptable this weekend.

Coaches including coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio of the Denver Broncos, along with San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, were spotted berating officials in a way unacceptable to the league office.


If someone were to make that mistake, he would be flagged on the field and he would be hearing from our office in a very firm way.

-- NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson, on if a coach berates a replacement referee this weekend
"We contacted them to remind them that everyone has a responsibility to respect the game," NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson said Thursday night. "We expect it to be adhered to this weekend and forevermore."

The last time the NFL reached out to so many teams on an in-season issue it felt this important was an October weekend in 2010. There were multiple helmet-to-helmet hits on unsuspecting receivers, including a violent hit from Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson on Philadelphia Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson that got him fined $50,000.

After watching coaches' behavior with replacement referees last weekend, the league determined it was unacceptable and put everyone on notice.

Ridiculous... league should also determine the refs performance is unacceptable. This is a cut throat business where everyones jobs are on the line everyday, yet you want them to chill out when refs **** over your team? How about when the refs give teams free yards on simple placements of the ball?

Had Broncos won the game, I know the Falcons would be all over that **** up at half time.

Check out this pass interference call... you can go to 0:50 to see it better. It was called on Ike Taylor 24...

The NFL would have a point if the coaches were wrong. In most cases, they are not. The officiating has been awful.

If the officials make the correct calls, the coaches wouldn't go off on them. Problem solved?

I agree, the league made it very clear before the season they wouldn't tolerate coaches badgering the refs, but John Fox spend the better part of the 4 hours the game lasted yelling at the refs and he didn't get fined for it. The league knows the refs in that game were horrible and they know if they fine Fox they are going to get into a situation where the head coaches may turn on the league office.

After the Monday Night Disgrace, John Fox should just fax the league office a picture of his wang.

Once again the NFL is a joke. Instead of going after the problem they are going after reactions to the problem.

Mindless stat to start your day: NFL officials are calling 23% more penalties on the road teams this year.

If they don't respect the game enough to get proper officiating, why the **** should the coaches?

@viclombardi
We will see the next 2 games. Im betting the refs will retaliate at John Fox for yelling at one of their own.

This. We'll take it and continue to take it and the NFL knows this.

However, this entire fiasco has moved my tolerance needle slightly. I'll continue to watch football, but if Denver is eliminated from playoff contention and the replacement officials are still working games, I won't watch.

This makes it painfully clear (as if we didn't already know this) that the NFL is more concerned about the "appearance" of the game than whether the game is played right. Yelling coaches, and long delays are not good for ratings, and therefore advertising revenue. Better to muzzle the coaches, let the calls be wrong, and move the game along. Make it LOOK like everything is peachy keen, and in theory no-one will be the wiser. The cash register still rings, and you can hope against hope that next week will be better.

As long as the fans keep buying the product, watching the games, and staying in their seats, not much is likely to change. And that... is exactly what is going to happen.

Its ok...when they flag Fox for screaming they will accidentally add 15 points to our score instead of marking the ball back 15 yards.

What I thought was ballsy was they pulled the "Respect the game " card while fielding the jokes of officials.

Tell me again who is disrespecting the game...

Get those 100k to turn off their TVs or STFU. They get a vote with clicker in hand and that's the one that matters. I have a feeling most will still vote "This is acceptable and entertaining to me" and turn the game on.

Now people have gone from watching for the love of the game to watching the train wreck happening 16 times a week. People will not stop watching, no matter what happens.

I know it'll be ineffective, but it's better than sitting around saying, "Man people should stop watching...while I watch". <~That's the queue for the ellipse police.

Sign it, don't sign it. Watch, don't watch. I don't really give a ****.

If you have access to this kind of magic you should make his ass itchy and his arms too short to scratch it.
