NFL Commissioner Gives State Of League Address

Commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL is healthy, but his state of the league address was overshadowed by the officiating controversy in the NFC Championship Game. He says officiating is not an exact science. A no-call on a seemingly obvious pass interference penalty by the Rams prevented the Saints from potentially running down the clock and kicking a chip-shot field goal to win. Instead, the Rams went on to win in overtime and advance to Super Bowl 53. Many fans around the country are calling for some kind of change in procedure to prevent a similar situation in the future. Goodell says they'll look at all possible solutions, but notes that officiating will never be perfect due to the human element.
