Williams Not Fined For Shoving Ref.

Just as a frame of reference the 49ers were about the same in the superbowl as they were during the regular season.

Wow! Nice find. So if I am reading that right the 2nd and 7th most penalized teams in the NFL combined for less than half of the average penalties per game.

DAYUM! Oh, and over the last three, the Niners were trending down, but the Ravens were trending abiu the same. Hmmmm...something is definitely fishy.

It doesn't matter if he knew he was shoving a ref, he may have had no clue, but that is no excuse for the two handed shove he gave to the ref. Justin Smith was ejected and fined for far less than that.

NFL is starting to be the NBA.....

Going to be the longest offseason in history. Oh well, I guess thats why they have baseball. To help us get by. No wonder its called America's pastime.

And regaining its perch as the #1 sport in America. At least a fix can never happen unless the commish is part of it.
It does make you wonder...what the heck's goin' on out there, a famous quote from the great Vince Lombardi. Intentional or not, anytime you bump a referee, it should be an automatic flag. One thing I couldn't help but notice is it seems there are two officiating mindsets. One for the regular season, when seemingly every other play there's a yellow flag. During the playoffs/SB, it seemed as if they all of a sudden got armlock. A number of fouls committed that were automatic flags during the regular season, but not so in the playoffs. That's BS...if you're going to "let 'em play" in the playoffs, then the same should hold true in the regular season.
I would bet that Justin Smith would have been ejected for touching a ref in the Super Bowl as well. Which Niner would Goodell have hugged if the 49ers had won?

He (Goodell) would have been waiting by Ray Ray's locker to console him. Duh!

they probably had the power cut..............
