    Unsportsmenlike Penalty on the Browns



    Happened towards the end of the game, pushing the Browns back past the 50. Any info on this?

    Who was it? What was it for?

    I heard it was on Shurmer for yelling about the previews play...if I recall correctly.

    That came along with the intentional grounding. Not sure, but I believe it was on the Cleveland bench. Shurmur was screaming at the refs about the grounding call.

    The speaker wasn't working until right at the end of the ref calling it, but mayock thought it was for shurmur disagreeing with the intentional grounding

    Happened right in front of me. Shurmur went onto the field and was berating the ref for the intentional grounding call. The Side Judge, who's face Shurmur was in, threw the flag straight up about 25 feet in the air. Steratore seemed a bit surprised as he was about to place the ball and start play when the Side Judge called over the penalty.

    Hmm... this is a disturbing new trend, not being able to question calls made by the refs. I guess that baseball has had ejections for arguing with umpires for years, but penalizing players for arguing with calls has never been part of the game's culture.

    That being said, you'd have to be an idiot to not think that was intentional grounding. He was in the pocket, and there was nobody even close to where he threw the ball.

    I am suspecting the Shurmur was going off like he had been against 'the replacements' and the real zebras responded that they were not going to accept such treatment.

    The replacement zebras did it to Harbaugh on Sunday and the real zebras did it to Shurmur on Thursday.

    The real zebs must've studied film.

    I think it has more to do with the refs making a statement saying "we're not the replacement refs" and they wanted to show who's in control of the game now.
