Keep Your Hands Off The Refs, Donnie
It was pretty much a blah kind of day in the NFL yesterday. Unless, of course, your goal was seeing a Tampa Bay/Arizona shootout (or Washington/Detroit) or Brett Favre getting his chin split open, but thanks to the Tennessee/San Diego game, there was some fun to be had, especially when the referees were involved. What we have is Titans safety Donnie Nickey getting mad at some of the extracurricular activities going on after the play in question was over.
To express his frustration, Nickey took a swing at the offending Chargers player, but instead of hitting his target, he hit referee Bill Levy in the chest. Not good. The end result was, despite the fact he didn’t mean to, Nickey getting ejected for touching an official.
That’ll learn ya.
Who knows, maybe Nickey wanted to get a jump start on all that California trick or treating?
