How many refs on NFL field?
How many different colored flags are there in the NFL?
Altogether how many players and offcials are on the field?
Why do the refs in the NFL make or miss calls that hinder the outcome of a Vikings game?
It can seem, sometimes, that the Refs in a football game make or miss calls in favor of one team or against another. This really isnt the case though. The refs can and do make the wrong call, miss calls, etc, but thats just because they are human, and humans can make mistakes. So be calm and realize that there really aren't refs in the NFL with an anti-Minnesota Vikings agenda.

Why do the helmets with the radios in them in the NFL have the green stickers on them?
To show how many radios are on the field at a time. This rule was enforced after the Atlanta Falcons had Vick and Schaub, both quarterbacks, on the field at the same time. People began to think that it was unfair for a team to have more than one radio on the field at a time. The green sticker was then enforced to show coaches and refs who had the radios on the field. One defensive and offensive player are allowed to have a radio on the field at a time.
