Mike Pereira: NFL has become ‘too technical’

Jesse James catch

Many NFL fans feel that video replay — and unclear rules — have made the league less enjoyable to watch. Perhaps surprisingly, Mike Pereira agrees with them.

The former vice president of officiating and current Fox rules analyst told the Dan Patrick Show on Monday that the league has become “too technical,” which has negatively impacted the product in terms of entertainment value.

Ultimately, the NFL needs to be getting the calls right. Replay and the interpretation of the rules, however, have led to us looking at every little bobble or step or technicality during reviews. The Pittsburgh Steelers were victimized by this on Sunday. It’s easy to see why this can be frustrating for viewers and players alike.
