Mike Pereira the NFL’s head of officiating was not happy today when Florida State University’s Heisman Quarterback Jameis Winston tried to move a ref out of the way. While the commentators laughed Pereira said he would have ejected him.
Contact with an official can clearly lead to an ejection. Webster was doing his job, which was to hold the snap until the referee cleared him in this situation. Winston clearly pushes him out of the way so he can get the snap off.
That’s a foul, folks.
The announcers laughed and called what Winston did priceless.
However, I think Winston should have paid the price for a foul and should have been ejected.
