Quick Hits: Detroit Lions Officiating Analysis With Dean Blandino

Welcome to the Detroit Lions Podcast, today’s clip is from our 24-hour St. Jude charity broadcast in which we interviewed former NFL VP of officiating and current Fox Sports NFL Rules Analyst Dean Blandino. He gives us an inside view of the NFL and New England Patriots “Deflategate” scandal, the combining of the USFL and XFL spring football leagues, and spends some time discussing their approach to officiating transparency. We also discuss accountability for officials and how the new spring league could be used as a mechanism to help officials get better if they aren’t performing up to standard.

Blandino also goes into how officials can get certain calls wrong, missed, or worse, call penalties that didn’t happen. He also addresses some specific calls that officials have gotten patently wrong in various Detroit Lions games. We also talk about how the line of scrimmage is being officiated this year and how much motion and holding are taking place in the NFL today. We also talk about the penalties assessed for pass interference and holding in the NFL and what it could mean if they were changed.  Dean Blandino provides significant insights in this interview with the Detroit Lions Podcast.
