Art McNally – NFL Director of Officials and Father of Instant Replay

This episode we fire up the DeLorean and head back to learn about the man known as the Father of Instant Replay, Art McNally.  Art gave almost 60 years of his life to the NFL to improve the officiating department.  Last episode discussed Shorty Ray’s impact on the development of the rules.  Art McNally used this foundation and trained his officials to be the best they could be.  He developed the modern evaluation system that transformed how NFL officials improve their craft.  Art won many awards throughout his lifetime, even earning the honor of having the Game Day Central for NFL officials named after him.  The only thing he is missing is that birth into the Professional Football Hall of Fame.  This episode gives you information to make the decision if you feel he should be included.  So strap on your seat belt, and let’s get ready to take this baby up to 88mph.
