I am also an amateur football ref. One of the things emphasized is that it is one guys primary call. (Back judge. Has dead ball end line of the End zone)  the Headlinesman has the sideline) Now if the BJ is watching something else ( receivers in fron. Of him, or is blocked out) and doesn't get there in time, the sideline guy,,also has responsibility to be in position to make a call.

Correct protocol is for both refs,to,make Eye,contact , nod the call as a catch or not and make the signal.  If the one guy had not seen it, he lets the other ref know, and then they go with the guy who saw it.

What happened in the NFL game was b.s.

LaFrance was cheap and a descent pickup. He is okay but not spectacular, he is not Harris's future replacement. I would love for Alex Taylor to get drafted by the Bombers.  Much better upside than LaFrance.  I hear Alex has some NFL interest.

Check your mechanics son. Your Headlinesman is back at the LOS in a 7 man crew, and its  your side judge or field judge that has the sideline in the end zone. Amateur ref indeed.
