The NFL is tweaking some rules, including offensive holding. According to the article:

The committee also is considering recommending to officials that they make sure there was holding on a play before throwing a flag.

"We want to make sure they actually see the foul," McKay said.

That seems pretty obvious to me. What exactly were they doing before? Oh, I need a bathroom break, better throw a flag here. Hey! That QB had a lot of protection. I bet there was holding. I was looking at the cheerleaders, but there sure might have been holding on that play. That's a flag.

Making sure they see a penalty before calling a penalty is definitely the thing to do. What the heck took them so long?
