Mike Bezner with the Big Sky Conference and Portland Football Officials Association discusses various stages of training they go through in their association and we talk officiating philosophies.
Big Sky Conference
Pass interference - Art 7-5-10:
It is forward-pass interference if any player of A or B who is beyond the neutral zone interferes with an eligible opponent's opportunity to move toward, catch or bat the pass.
Defenseless player - Art 9-4-3g:
Make any other contact with an opponent, including a defenseless player, which is deemed unnecessary or excessive and which incites roughness.
Intentional grounding - Art 7-5-2d-e:
An illegal forward pass is a foul. Illegal forward passes include:
- A pass intentionally thrown into an area not occupied by an eligible offensive receiver.
- A pass intentionally thrown incomplete to save loss of yardage or to conserve time.
