I must say I was surprised they didn’t give him a penalty. Would there have been anything more SOL than that? Adding insult to injury. It was good to see the ref have a little sense of humor about it. Typically they like to flex their muscle.
I thought he was getting booted for touching the ref
But touching ref to say sorry and see if they’re ok
If you flipped football their direction and didn’t mean to hit them
Imo doesn’t need to be a penalty that impacts the game so profoundly.
I was at that game. Complete effing BS. Earlier in the 4th GB had a drive where they absolutely held the shit out of our defense. Of course nothing called. Had to sit around a bunch of Packer scum while they celebrated. I have to admit though we were pretty obnoxious to them throughout the game. GD I hate Packer fans. It’s good watching the empire fall. Good luck finding another HOF QB…fricken bastards.
I’m definitely not going to thank Jamaal for taking a dumb penalty. I’ll thank the ref for letting it go. Although he shouldn’t have. You can’t have players intimidating refs, I bet the refs union wasn’t happy with his decision. Punishment is what keeps you from repeating the behavior.
What behavior if it was an accident ? Imo that’s almost more reckless to safety because then you have a bunch of podded off players distracted by things they can’t control.
It would be an interesting game to see how the refs graded.
On one hand, the goal line call was amazingly correct given how fast and close it was in not calling it a TD while the spot looked off.
Would ref get better grade for calling it a TD knowing it’ll get reviewed and then spotted correctly
But mis calling a TD is points and review may only not be conclusive but not prove call wrong …so points stand
Vs correctly not putting points on the board , where coach can challenge
Then add the body slam which seemed extra
We’ll never know what grade those refs got to know was it officiated better than most ? Was it average ? Below ?
