Totally uncalled for, shoving the ref, that looked premeditated, he needs a nice fine and a suspension.

He looked like a dolphin for a while. I guess the vikings player thought he was a steeler and needed to be blocked. They mentioned something about in the next owner's meeting or whatever they want to give refs helmets or move them. With today's technology you think we could get them out of the way and not acting like middle linebackers trying to be in the game.

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?

he shoulda picked the ref up and put him over his shoulder and kept running.

I know refs get hit all the time, but it sure looked like this one was intentional. I'd like to see the NFL do an investigation on it, and then act on it accordingly.
