    Green dot helps Ref track who has audio

    GREEN DOT HELPS REF TRACK WHO HAS AUDIO

    One of the new things we noticed during last night's Hall of Fame game was that each of the quarterbacks had affixed to the backs of their helmets a small green dot.

    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tells us that the sticker is a new device being used to help officials confirm that only one player on offense is wearing a helmet with a radio receiver from the coaching staff.

    So, if a team plans to put two quarterbacks on the field at the same time, one of them must change helmets before entering the game.

    ...
    You know, I noticed that dot on the back of Fife's helmet, but didn;t know what it was for.
    I guess I wasn't paying attention for the other QBs.

    Also, there is a movement to place a receiver in the helmet of each offensive player, so that they can all hear the signals being called out by the quarterback.
    Sounds like a good idea to me, espcially when you are playing on the road.

    That movement gets brought up every year.
    Goodell seems to b a proponent of it, cut I don't like it.
    It eliminates a lot of the home field advantage.

    I'm in agreement.
    These are professionals.
    If they cannot come up with a way to do hand-signals when necessary, they shouldn't be out there.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
