A safety was going to intercept the ball he had no idea that the WR was there (never looked back and he was coming across the field) and his head touch the WR head as the safety was going after the ball. It was 3 rd and long and with the flax of "targeting" made it auto 1st. And the player was ejected. But the booth overruled the ejection because you can clearly tell he had no idea of the WR as he was coming across the field and was catching the ball. It total BS.
Another game I was watching I seen a DB wait for the guy to land to make a hit and instead of a 4 th down they made a first down bc of the targeting issue. He was clearly gun shy.
yep, in the Bama/TAMU game, the DB was clearly going for the interception...nothing but trying to make a play on the ball, and there was contact. Targeting flag thrown, but overturned, yet they keep the 15yd penalty....
then Saturday in BAMA/Ole Miss, DB comes in for the hit and leads with his shoulder. would've been a shoulder-to-shoulder hit, but the receiver ducked his head into the DB's pads at the last second, so the ref threw the flag for targeting the receiver over the shoulders....when they reviewed it, it was clear the receiver ducked his head into the db's pads and they overturned it, but again, still a 15yd penalty.
it is absurd
