Gif of Referee Being Shoved Down in the Vikings/Steelers Game

That was a great game between the Vikings and the Steelers. There's a part where a ref just gets shoved down from behind in the play. Anyone see it?

damn he went far

Actually the player could have done a little better job avoiding the ref on that one. They are out there completely unprotected. They don't have any helmet or pads. And they are not young and athletic like the players. The player had a 20 yard straight line where he could see the ref. He could have side stepped a little to the right IMO. I still don't see why this hit was necessary?

Well, according to the post game show, that player was called for a BS tripping penalty by that ref earlier (on the goaline), so laying him out was probably not entirely by accident, but entirely w/in his right.

I don't know if running into an unprotected ref from behind in full pads because he thought he saw you try and trip another player is "entirely w/in his right".

A ref was in the way of a player playing and was run over- that IS w/in his right; it happens every week, at every level of football. The fact that there was a connection to the previously mentioned penalty merely served as a "I doubt the player felt too bad in that instance" reference.
