I take your point about game deciding penalties, but obviously the refs were trying to get control of a situation that was getting out of control - at which shoving someone who's not wearing a uniform (no doubt Porter was mouthing off, as he regularly did as a player) is going to stand out. And after that headshot, plus your fans having thrown shit on the field during the game, aren't going to earn you extra leeway.
At some point if you don't want the refs to swing the outcome with an unportanlike conduct-type penalty you have to have the sense to understand the situation and not put them in that situation.
Poor Burfict was crying after the game. Poor, sad little delicate flower.Edited by lawyerdad - 1/9/16 at 9:46pm
