Six-man committee named to tackle ‘catch’ rule

0

NEW YORK: Former NFL general manager Bill Polian, ex-NFL receiver James Thrash and three former coaches were named Friday to a committee charged with trying to simplify the NFL “catch” rule. The six-man committee also includes former side judge Tom Finken, one of the officials patroling the sidelines whose job is often to judge the veracity of a reception, plus ex-coaches Joe Philbin, Jim Schwartz and Ken Whisenhunt. Their mission is to define what constitutes a successful catch. They will make a recommendation to the NFL competition committee on how to change one of the most troublesome rules in the sport.
