WOLFE: The role of Referees

Much has been written, and many discussions have occurred regarding football safety issues, and the need to better protect the athletes. It occurs to me that there has not been sufficient emphasis on the role that the game officials play in protecting the players. Changing and emphasizing rules that eliminate tackling with the helmet, and eliminate making contact with the opponent’s helmet, are effective, only if enforced in a vigorous manner by the officials!!
