NFL To Update Helmet Video
August 21, 2018
After plenty of controversy and confusion about the helmet rule, the NFL will introduce a new video which will be sent out to officials, coaches and players. The revised video will be prepared by Al Riveron, the league’s vice president of officials, with assistance from other league executives. It will include proper and erroneous applications by game officials. The rule was expanded in May and prohibits players from initiating contact with the helmet. The NFL is hoping the video will bring some clarity and consistency to the rule but we’re not holding our breathe.
