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.

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.
