Overview

A former NFL ref and acclaimed rules expert shares his insights and thoughts on the rules of the sport  Only recently in the world of NFL media have "rules experts" become an essential part of a fan's viewing experience. As the league continues to implement rule changes that have more and more of an impact on games and, sometimes, the final outcome, it's become imperative that fans understand the rules and how they're applied. But often, they need help. Mike Pereira, hired by Fox Sports in 2010 as the rules expert for both the NFL and college football, was not only the first to rise to prominence in the role, but he is consistently lauded as being the best by his peers and even rival media networks. Viewers have come to rely on Pereira, the former vice president of NFL officiating, to provide entertaining, informative, and reliable explanations of the league's often baffling and controversial rulings during games. Now, Pereira digs a little deeper and gives NFL fans and casual viewers alike insight into NFL rules, their applications, and some of the most controversial calls in recent memory, in terms both can understand. In this book, Pereira draws on professional experience and his personal life, both his years of work at the pinnacle of the officiating world and his upbringing as the child of longtime official, Al Pereira.

The Immaculate Reception, the Music City Miracle, the Tuck Rule. Out of context these terms may lead people to scratch their heads. Football fans, however, speak a different language. For those who love the game these words evoke memories that shaped their teams, their cities and their lives. And, like many of football’s biggest moments, they had as much to do with the officials as they did the players.

 

In After Further Review: My Life Including the Infamous, Controversial, and Unforgettable Calls that Changed the NFL (Triumph Books, September 2016), Fox Sports’ NFL rules expert Mike Pereira, along with sports editor Rick Jaffe, explores the evolution of rules and their history in the development of the game. Drawing on his experience as an NFL official, Pereira clarifies the complex and constantly changing set of rules that govern the nation’s most popular sport. Highlights include:

 

  • A praising foreword from Hall of Fame Quarterback Troy Aikman and broadcast partner Joe Buck, exemplifying the respect Pereira has earned around the league
  • An inside look at the life of an official, what it takes to make it to the NFL and what to expect for the future of officiating
  • In-depth explanations of the most controversial plays in NFL history
  • A heartfelt, informed defense of NFL officials and the quality of work they produce, set against the unfair expectations and misinterpretations of fans and the league itself
  • The inspiring story of Pereira’s bout with testicular cancer at only 25 years old
  • Details of Pereira’s record-setting career as a professional baseball player in Alaska

 

After Further Review combines a fascinating autobiography with an insider look at some of the most important years in the history of the National Football League. A true American sports story, told with Pereira’s trademark charm and wit, this new book will bring value to football fans across the nation.
