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:

NFL SVP of Officiating Perry Fewell on the Cassius Marsh taunting penalty from Monday night: “He takes several steps towards the Pittsburgh bench, posturing towards their sideline.”
Once again, the league isn’t backing off the emphasis on taunting.pic.twitter.com/QzH6fl02XK

We'll do anything to justify the unjust after the fact.
Lack of accountability, and blind backing of others underperforming in the profession is a massive problem. https://t.co/WcHku3R4xe

The League is wrong and it is okay to be wrong but admit it and move forward. https://t.co/MSAICnJgR1
