Could the refs that called the game against Cam Newton be punished by Goodell?

Cam Newton is closing in on a new deal with the Carolina Panthers

Refs could be getting suspended for not making the right calls

The NFL has become such an interesting league. After the Panthers game against the Broncos, many took notice that the Broncos were aiming to hit Cam Newton in the helmet.  The video images of him getting hit were bad and we all know if it was Tom Brady the calls would have been made.  Well it seems like there could be some repercussions for the referees that did not make the calls.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledged that the officials missed at least one call in Thursday’s Carolina Panthers vs. Denver Broncos game. Speaking on Monday, the commissioner hinted at the idea that discipline may be forthcoming.

“That’s why we have a process,” Goodell said, per Mark Maske, The Washington Post. “Obviously hopefully they’re flagged on the field. And then if not, discipline can occur. Jon Runyan is in charge of that aspect of it. So he’s reviewing that and I assume he’ll come out with a decision in the next day or so.”
