Raven shoves ref: Should Cary Williams have been penalized?

February 04, 2013|By Houston Mitchell

What happens to an NFL player when he pushes a ref? Nothing, apparently. At least, if you are Cary Williams and it's the Super Bowl.

After Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed intercepted a pass by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the second quarter of Sunday's Super Bowl, a scuffle between both teams broke out. As the players were being separated, Ravens cornerback Williams shoved a referee.


You can watch it all in the video above. The shove happens about 30 seconds into the video. Watch the right side of the screen.

Result: No penalty on Williams. Maybe the ref realized it was heat of the moment. But it seems like you should get some penalty for pushing the ref.

What do you think? Should Williams have been penalized? Vote in our poll and let us know.
