It was noted that Jeff Triplette resigned from this position this past Friday.
According to NBCSports he released a statement saying,
“I have truly enjoyed being part of the leadership of this great organization,” Triplette said in a statement. “I am proud that I was able to fight to protect the rights and interests of our members for the last 15 years. However, the conclusion of this season seemed like the right time for me to step aside and allow others to step up and lead the Union.”
Also, the site includes that Triplette will be replaced by Tony Steratore. Triplette served for awhile with this organization and will continue to be a referee, just not the prime leader. This will change the face of the association of referees. However, this change may be the thing to make a positive impact on the National Football League as a whole.
