NFL, CFL expand their officiating partnership

The NFL is expanding its program to work with the Canadian Football League in an effort to improve officiating for both leagues.

The leagues announced today that six NFL officials will work in the CFL in June and July, which includes the CFL’s preseason and the first few weeks of its regular season. Six CFL officials will participate in the NFL’s officiating development program, which gives them additional training and the opportunity to get called up to the NFL if they prove themselves capable.

So is this more a move towards seamless ie. the same, rules in both leagues? :wink:
