yeah but till why call a penalty in the first place? the league refs aren't aware enough of the rules they have to impose their own biases into the game?
they're way too willing to call a penalty on anything. so they call the penalty, sometimes stopping the play's outcome (and many touchdowns//scoring opportunities as we've seen) and then the suits have to sort it all out
It's not like every ref knows that Abdullah is a devout muslim.
In the moment you have to throw the flag because he technically broke a rule.
