MOBILE, Ala. – Leaving the weekend of the congress, the rules and arbitrations of the NFL overtime were discussed as much as the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.
Cowboy owner Jerry Jones said that human judgment – and error – are part of the game. Dallas faced the heartbreak of the notorious "no-catch" ruling on Dez Bryant's game at the end of the playoff game in 2014 against the Green Bay division.
"At the end of the day, it's the official's call, and you live with that," Jones said from Senior Bowl practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. "Oh my God, we lived with this on Dez's catch, surely it's hard to live."
Jones said he would probably go along with the recommendations of the NFL competition committee, in which Cowboys executive vice president, Stephen Jones, serves.

Stephen Jones expects the meetings to review ways to reduce arbitrage errors – such as non-call interference in the NFC title game that may have ruined New Orleans' chances of defeating LA and going to the Super Bowl. Then there are the extraordinary rules, in which the game ends if the first team in attack scores a touchdown. New England reached the final zone, so the Kansas City offense never touched the ball.
"We will give this, as if we were doing everything, a very wide turnaround," said Stephen Jones.
But he also noted "you do not want to officiate to play all the parts of the game".
But how can the commission work against the decision of games in error?
"You hate it for anything, but you want consistency," said Stephen Jones. "It's difficult, you will not always be in agreement with everyone, even on replays you will not make people agree. [in the Rams-Saints game] it was obviously difficult to watch for everyone. Of course, it's really difficult because of what it meant for those who play in the Super Bowl and who does not. But these are all things we have to work on ".
