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.

It happens all the time, but this instance it APPEARS that the player purposely shoved the ref. Or course, I have never played football, so I don't know how quickly a player can slow done. The league office will determine whether it was uncalled for.
He probablly was mad at the ref after they called back the TD cause his illegal block/tripping
the ref and ap gifs are great but I enjoyed the fumble six and pick six much more

Yeah, he really didn't need to shove him down like that.

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?


looks like clipping to me, stupid refs helping the Minnesota Favreras.

we might not be able to get AP, but man if the Rams didn't hate us so much, I would LOVE to work out a deal to get Stephen Jackson.

it would be like having two VDs, one going out for passes while still having, a faster more agile VD coming out of the backfield........defenses would be F'd!

which reminds me, I hope to find a gif of Willis push on Slaton on Sunday on the big run he had at the end of the game..... he push Slaton and he flew like 7-8 yards out of bounce.

That's better than some first down quarterback dives! 10 for degree of difficulty.
