Not Targeting If Not Conclusive Evidence
One of the proposed changes that could come about is if referees throw a flag and make the call that it’s targeting. If they goto replay”
- If replay overturns targeting, the player stays in the game and the 15-yard penalty goes away.
This is an absolute must.
I can’t count how many times players were wrongfully ejected from games for targeting because the officials didn’t want to be shown up and corrected. What’s even crazier is referees straight getting calls wrong AFTER looking at reply.
FSU’s Trey Marshall was ejected for this hit on Miami’s Brad Kaaya. How is that targeting? He hits Kaaya in the chest leading with his facemask.
Any referee looking at this on replay should pick up the flag and Marshall stays in the game.
