New York Coach Rich Kotite said that NFL director of officiating Jerry Seeman admitted that Jet wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson should have been awarded a touchdown on a controversial play that ended with an interception by Washington Redskin cornerback Tom Carter at a pivotal point in Sunday's game. The Redskins eventually won, 31-16, but led only 24-16 midway through the fourth-quarter when pass interference was called on Johnson.

Jerry Seeman, the veteran NFL referee who after 16 years will take over next year as director of the league's 107 officials, isn't known for being involved in many controversial plays. So the teams "don't really have a book on (him)," Ram Coach John Robinson said. "And that probably speaks well for him. It's generally assumed around the league that he was a good choice. "In the (Ram) games he's worked, you can see that he knows football. He knows what's going on."

Jerry Seeman, the NFL's new director of officiating, fired back: "What we need is more consistency in the rules."

Jack Gosch made a hole in one on the 10th hole at the Sunrise Country Club earlier this week, then he made another one on the next hole. Gosch, 74, used a driver to ace the 204-yard, par-three 10th hole. He followed that by hitting an eight-iron into the hole on the 135-yard 11th at the executive course. "I've never gotten more congratulations for anything in my life," Gosch said Thursday, three days after the feat.

Robert Bailey's 103-yard punt return for a touchdown against the Saints on Sunday should have been negated by a penalty because players had come off the sidelines onto the field, The Times-Picayune of New Orleans quoted a supervisor of officials as saying "Both of the teams were out there illegally," Leo Miles told The Times-Picayune. He watched the game as the league's official observer in the Superdome press box.
