to be fair the ref SHOVED AN ELBOW INTO HIS CHEST FIRST they may be football players and officials but overall they are men the ref made pushed smith first for no reason and I'm sure smith probably thought it was another player trying to hold him back and he swiped away. I'm so sick of the ticky tack rules in the NFL for everything. The rules are meant to protect the players and the integrity of the game. the rule book isn't meant to be used the way it is today. You could have looked at the situation and seen it didn't deserve an ejection.
