No flags thrown during pregame scuffle in Foxboro


In adopting a rule that triggers the ejection of a player who commits a pair of certain specific types of unsportsmanlike conduct fouls, the NFL emphasized that the rule applies to any potential pregame infractions.

As a result of Sunday’s pregame scuffle between the Bills and Patriots, no flags were thrown and no players were given the first of two unsportsmanlike conduct fouls.

It’s unclear why no flags were thrown, or whether the officials even witnessed the incident. When players from both teams are on the field, however, it’s not unreasonable to expect that someone in black and white stripes will be paying attention.

  1. I think you have the LOSE part correct. This should be a lesson to all Patriots fans for taking Tom Brady for granted and there were too many of them. Those morons calling radio shows and demanding that Brady be traded are now seeing the future without Tom Bray. Reminds me of the past before Tom Brady.

  2. Refs knew they were going to give the game to Buffalo so nothing had to be done pre-game.

  3. Funny that the Pats fans are only complaining about the refs when their defense has done absolutely nothing and their offense is feeble at best.
