If all Newton had done was yell/cuss, he wouldn't have either.

You can't touch them.


According to the official it wasn't the contact, but the verbal assault, that warranted the flag.

The ref was right between him and the defender honestly. I doubt he would have ran the ref down to get in his face and push him.

The ref also made no attempt at all to move and was even moving towards Cam...

It really was nothing, ref said so himself.

Still, even if he had gone and and did contact the ref on purpose, I still have no problem considering the history of that crew.
