“We didn’t want to have the appearance of an absolute army looking at every individual call as being correct or wrong. Here, the emphasis is always on helping the referee. It’s not all just beating the referee up.”
-- Alan Brown, PRO’s assignment coordinator, on the PRO Referee Review Center, where all MLS games
are monitored in real time at PRO's Manhattan offfices for difficult refereeing decisions. Its former name was the Referee Command Center, but the name was changed because it sounded too Orwellian.
