NFL puts ref Roy Ellison on administrative leave

NFL puts ref Roy Ellison on administrative leave after Jerry Hughes allegation

Michael David Smith

 

Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes accused official Roy Ellison of calling him a b—h during Sunday’s game, and now the NFL has taken the first step toward disciplining, or even firing, Ellison.

Ellison was placed on administrative leave, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The NFL suspended Ellison for a game in 2013 because he used abusive language toward a player. And Ellison had previously been warned about using abusive language toward players after a prior allegation. So this is at least the third time such an incident has taken place.

That may make it hard for Ellison to keep his job. If a suspension wasn’t enough to get Ellison to treat players with respect, he may not have the temperament to be an NFL official.

Ellison, who fills the role of umpire on the officiating crew, is considered one of the best in the league. Last season he worked the Super Bowl, an assignment officials don’t get unless they’ve been highly graded during that season. He’s also a full-time employee, unlike most officials who are part-timers. But that’s not a guarantee that he’ll keep his job after yet another allegation of inappropriate conduct on the field.

 

didn't burfict have some kind of interaction with guy, at one point time or another.

I'd love to see the refs face the media after a game the way the coaches do.

I agree..

 

They obviously screw up all the time... costing teams games some times.

They should fine them too... let them be more accountable instead of the NFL releasing a statement 3 days later saying our bad..

They've got Gene Steratore for that - whatever the call was it was the right call because blahblahblah New York blahblah player safety blahblah integrities.

 

Even with the replay they can't tell their ass from their elbow, may as well do away with all that and go with the "because I said so" & move the game along.

Still not over the drop that Michael Thomas had on his so called TD in the Saints game (Although I do have him on my fantasy team) .

That was as obvious as it gets, and the still got it wrong.

I thought that this was going to be the ref that missed the obvious false start on a Chargers' TD against the stealers.

Or maybe hitting a defenseless receiver when the receiver is still juggling and trying to gain possession.
