What they are saying…

Peter King, Football Morning in America, NBC Sports

Ben Austro is so deft and smart about every football rule that he could be working in the NFL officiating department. But you’re lucky he isn’t, because now he has time to enrich your football experience with this book.

It’s been fascinating to follow Ben Austro’s progression from interested fan to qualified commentator to bona fide expert on NFL rules and officiating. So You Think You Know Football? is must-reading for NFL fans who want to know how the game really works. The book takes you from the start of the game to the finish and highlights interesting rule quirks with real-life examples taken from recent NFL games.

Kevin Siefert, ESPN

A readable, informative, and entertaining casebook of NFL rules that appeals to the casual and expert fan. Austro explains nuanced examples with an authority typically unseen from NFL media.

Larry Upson, former NFL officiating supervisor

Ben Austro has done an outstanding job of research and analysis of the rules and nuances of the game of football as played and officiated in the National Football League. For every fan that has ever said “I could’ve made that call” to themselves or their football buddies—here’s your chance. Austro leaves no stone unturned as he fully explains the when, what, and how behind various rules and interpretations which come into play each and every week during an NFL game. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I have.



As I read this book, I felt it could have been titled Everything You Wanted to Know About NFL Rules, But Didn’t Know Who to Ask, since so many rules and questions are addressed. Not only that, and perhaps more importantly, they are explained in a manner that anyone will be able to understand.
