NFL reportedly fires down judge in middle of season

In an unprecedented move, the NFL has let one of its game officials go in the middle of the season.

First reported by FootballZebras.com, NFL down judge Hugo Cruz has been fired for performance reasons.

Cruz was responsible for a big mistake in Week 6 when he missed an obvious false start by Chargers left tackle Russell Okung on a scoring play against the Browns. He didn’t work in Week 7 and according to ESPN, there was no indication Cruz was involved in any off-field incidents or that his firing was in any way disciplinary.

Not baseball related precisely but interesting to see a sport terminating an official during the season for poor performance.

OT - 2018 NFL thread

Quarantine procedure in effect.

The Raiders and Bears have finalized a deal that will send pass-rusher Khalil Mack and a second-round pick to Chicago in exchange for four draft picks—including two first-rounders—a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Saturday.

The Bears gave up first-round picks in 2019 and 2020, a third-round pick in 2020 and a sixth-round pick in 2019, the source said. In addition to Mack, Chicago also gets a second-round pick in 2020 and a conditional fifth-round pick in 2020.

How Twitter Has Become Locker Room Poison

Jason Witten’s Social Media Commandments

1. Don’t read your mentions good or bad—the feedback that matters is from your coach and those you respect.
2. Don’t reply to a negative; keep your eye above the spectator line.
3. Negative social media is often not indicative of the real world.
4. Use social media as a way to stay informed and connect.
5. Don’t post anything that wouldn’t make your family proud.

Article is written about NFL locker room’s by NFL player Jason Witten but (ask Josh Hader) has some relevance to MLB players as well.  I think he does a good job not coming across as a get off my lawn type but having some good suggestions.
