It will be very interesting to see the media comments, if any, surrounding Williams' blatant shove and the subsequent blind-eye... didn't even get a personal foul flag (there was one thrown, but on a different player and not by that ref). I don't even recall hearing it mentioned by the announcers after the fact. We all understand that the league isn't really interested in removing stars from the game on the biggest stages, but I was shocked at the total lack of reaction.

I was very surprised at this too... the ref didn't even throw a flag. I thought that was an ejectable offense? Smitty was ejected once for just TOUCHING a ref... Williams flat out shoved that guy.

The Ray Ray retiring and ascension to heaven is a better story to sell than a guy named Colin winning it all in year 1 as a starter.

I just remember the poo that Cam received and how big of an issue was made when he touched Boger. It just shows that the media does have a agenda. They turned a blind eye to that push by Williams. I was rooting for the Ravens and was like Oh Poo he just got ejected. I guess the refs can be overwhelmed at the Superbowl just like players.

After all the flags (and a couple of hats) that were thrown in that fight, the fact that Williams wasn't sent to the locker room was only one of the things that I was amazed by. I was forced to wonder if they tell the refs that ejection is only to be used in the most blatant of cases.

That was pretty blatant.

And people claim that if you touch a ref, it is an automatic penalty.

Well, it's obvious that shoving/touching a referee is not grounds for ejection in the eyes of the media unless of course it's that laptop stealing, selfish towel wearing, $cam Newton of ours.

duh...

Lots of things that might have drawn flags in other games didn't last night. It'd help to know if he said anything to the ref and if so, what (like say "watch out"). Regardless, he'll probably get fined.

Speculation that the Ravens might not be able to keep Williams next season, by the way. I'd definitely hope Gettleman checks him out.
