There is some question about the Objectionable Conduct penalty re “throw the flag” jesture.
Banks was called when he made the throw-the-flag motion after he thought a DI or contact penalty should have been called.
If he’s looking at the referee, sure, he could (should?) be called. But what if the player looks towards his bench and coach, suggesting a challenge flag be thrown? Would that be considered Objectionable Conduct?
The player is in fact questioning the official but how else is the coach/bench to receive a quick and timely suggestion to make a challenge? (ie, before a video replay can be reviewed by the team and before the start of the next play prevents a challenge)
Objectionable Conduct or not ???
