Who said being an NFL referee is easy? You have to make game-changing decisions in the blink of an eye, all while watching the top athletes in the world competing at full speed. You also have to be willing to keep up with those athletes for three hours.

For example, referees must run 13 40-yard dashes while taking only 35 seconds in between attempts.
We can only hope there will be videos to come out from the testing sessions with so many eager refs ready.
You know who will probably be at the top of his class…
