NFL will make history on Monday Night, The first All Black Officiating Crew will call Bucs/Rams game

Jerome Boger Ref All-Black
It took over 100 years before we could watch history happen. Monday Night will be the first time an entire black officiating crew will call a game.

The NFL is going to do something they have never done before in the history of the game. It is about time too!

The NFL will have an All-Black Officiating Crew for the first time in NFL history.

According to TMZ Sports, Jerome Boger, who is in his 17th year as a league official, will lead the 7-man crew. He’ll be joined by umpire Barry Anderson, down judge Julian Mapp, line judge Carl Johnson, field judge Dale Shaw, side judge Anthony Jeffries and back judge Greg Steed.

The NFL has been trying to make it more of an equal opportunity employer, but this is pretty sweet. Troy Vincent talked about the decision below.

“This historic Week 11 crew is a testament to the countless and immeasurable contributions of Black officials to the game, their exemplary performance, and to the power of inclusion that is the hallmark of this great game,” said Troy Vincent, NFL executive vice president of football operations.
