He should of been in the f**king middle of a scrap that was pretty much over, who the f**k is he herb dean? Justin tries to get away and probably thinks it's just a smaller player and when he realizes it's the ref he's already throwing his flag like he just got sucker punched. That ref was a b***h and it made me even more mad when I saw him on the sideline talking to the san diego coaches laughing it up. f**king f*gget ass old man.
and f**k Roger Goodell
the laughing on the san diego sideline irked me too. did anyone else feel that after smith shoved his arm that the ref gave him a slight shove back right in his chest? plus the stare down was a lil uncalled for and over the top
This play really bothers me because the way the ref initially pushed Justin Smith was not a block, it was more of a provocation. Justin Smith looked like he was trying to get whoever was in front of him out of the way, more like swiping away a gnat. Then the referee who has his back turned freaks out and pushes him back.
The referee didn't even see what happened. He lost his cool completely while Justin Smith wasn't holding his arms up like he did something wrong. This whole incident stinks. I hope someone outright tackles this sod next time. Like someone whose third on the depth chart or something. His ejection was a big factor in why Philip Rivers was able to go crazy with the ball.
