NFL SVP of Officiating Dragged After He Tried to Explain Bears Taunting Penalty

Bears linebacker Cassieus Marsh, who had just been called up to the Chicago Bears active roster,  made a huge play against the team he spent pre-season with, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Marsh was able to sack Ben Roethlisberger in the 4th quarter, which would have been a crucial play had he not been flagged for taunting.

Flag comes in, automatic 1st down. Bears go on to lose the game.

Here’s the taunting call below:

Following the play, the NFL’s senior VP of Officiating took to Twitter to explain the call.

He was, as you may expect, roasted.
