We all know that if you make the penalty motion, throwing the flag for Pass interference....you get a penalty. The reasoning behind it is that you are trying to influence the ref...disrespecting him...yadda yadda yadda
Then why is it ok for a player to
Signal a First down
Signal a TD
Signal complete or incomplete
Signal a fumble recovery
5)Run half way across the field and argue with the ref for a PI Flag
Any reasoning you can come up with for a penalty for signaling a penalty for PI can be said for the examples given
...bugs me too, they should all be penalties...’cept maybe the first down thing, that’s sort of a celebratory act, and I don’t mind that they’ve let celebrations back into the game....
...but the other ones I don’t like, especially fumble recoveries when the refs are trying to determine who has possession....if you don’t have the ball get the frig away from the pile instead of standing there pointing to your opponent’s end of the field! You, player without the ball, are irrelevant!...
I don’t mean the obvious first down signal where the receiver makes a catch and then signals first down…I mean after a 3rd and inches where the offence is pointing a first down…as if to influence the ref…defence is doing the same but in the opposite direction
No more than when the same DB signals incomplete.
Getting carried away and looking like whiny baby can be said for all the examples
As much as I hate to admit it being a Ti-Cat fan an all but it seems like one of the worst culprits for the flag throwing motion is Speedy B . I’d say that he’s good for at least one or two a game yet never seems to get called on it by the refs .
