That is a good read. Thanks for posting it. I like both the merit pay system and the early access to the DVD. The merit pay system would drastically improve officiating. Most fans would be surprised that most officials want an opportunity to watch the game they just officiated. I don't know about the PAC 12 officials being the best, but if the new guy continues to use these ideas, he will improve things even more.I just found this which is very interesting.
The PAC12 might have the best officials, but they have the worst teams and the worst conference of the big six. I do like the concept of merit pay and the giving each official a DVD copy of the game they just called.
