They are microphones to catch the conversation on the field. The parabolic shape efficiently reflects the sound to the microphone in the middle much as a satellite dish gathers the signal from the satellite it is pointed at. If you watch the game on TV you can hear what is being said by the players and refs even if they are across the field from the camera and mic.
