Even the announcers for the Browns and Ravens game were disgusted by the dog shit call, as well Gene Steratore’s terrible attempt to justify the call.
The NFL referees did their best to ensure the Ravens got a win over the Browns. Cleveland had a chance at a game tying field goal when the Ravens jumped early. The penalty would’ve put the ball closer, and would’ve nearly been a first down for the Browns.
Instead, the refs get together for a few minutes discussing how to best screw over Cleveland before ultimately calling a false start on someone that doesn’t move.
In a scramble attempt to save face the NFL connected the announcers to “rules expert” Gene Seratore, who gave a weak ass attempt at justifying the call. A false start with zero pre-snap movement by the offense. Classic NFL referee fuckery.
