Lets say there are opposing penalties. People have to decide decline or take. Who are these people? Coaches, QB, guy selling hot dogs?
How do the officials know who makes the decision? Are the officials given a list before the game?
What if the one making the decision is in the bathroom, is there a back up person?
It seems to happen rather quickly. Does the one making the decision use hand signals?
Thank you for your replies. I have often wondered how these things happen.
