Cary Williams shoves referee, avoids ejection

Cary Williams shoves refereeBaltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams shoved a referee while the teams had a dust-up following Colin Kaepernick’s interception in the second quarter of the Super Bowl. Williams was lucky he avoided an ejection considering making contact with a referee calls for a player to be thrown out of a game immediately.

The interception was the first ever thrown by a San Francisco 49ers quarterback in a Super Bowl. It was the second turnover of the quarter for the 49ers, but it luckily did not lead to any points for Baltimore. The Ravens elected to run a trick play on a fourth-and-nine from the 14, and kicker Justin Tucker was a yard short of gaining a first down.

The Ravens won the game 34-31, and benefited from Williams making some key plays later in the game. They’re lucky he wasn’t ejected.

    WOW- the guy just got up off the ground and was just making sure no one else was going to jump on him , no foul there!

    Not sure what you’re looking at, but the GIF shown in this article shows Williams jumping up, take a step towards the ref, then pushing/shoving the ref for no reason. There were no other players near the ref, so he can’t claim that he accidentally shoved the ref instead of another player. Definitely lucky he wasn’t ejected.

    Look folks, its a highly energetic sport – with a lot of emotions. I do not blame this man for shoving the ref. I believe if he would have continued to attack, push, or whatever to the ref after the initial contact, than fine him, suspend him, tickle his feet until he says uncle…

    Come on folks, its the SuperBowl……

    I think this man looked up – in a slit second he reacted towards the first thing in front of him – than it looks as if he then knew what just happened – he didn’t continue did he – – - – Its great for TV highlights.

    NOT ONLY DID HE SHOVE THE REF, BUT NUMBER 92 OF BALTIMORE PUSHES THE HEAD REF ALSO.
