Jameis Winston shoves ref out of the way (Video)
Jameis Winston shoved a referee out of his way during Florida State’s game against Boston College on Saturday, and he somehow avoided a flag.
The official was standing over the ball late in the third quarter to prevent the Seminoles from snapping it. He was doing this because Florida State had substituted players while going with a no-huddle attack. The defense must be allowed time to sub its own players if the offense changes personnel.
I have no idea how Winston wasn’t flagged for that. The only thing I can think of is that BC had already made its substitutions and the ref realized he should have already stepped away from the ball. Otherwise, there’s no reason an official would allow a player to physically push them.
