Watch this referee get aggressive in breaking up Vikings-Eagles scrum

November 15, 2016

Keith Ferguson is a back judge who his 17th year as an NFL referee, and you will respect his authority.

We don't yet know what Vikings Stefon Diggs might have said to Ferguson in this scrum in the end zone, but one can presume it was something bad, because Ferguson put some shoulder into this shove:

(Pay attention 0:08-0:13)

So far as we can tell, Ferguson is a well-respected referee who doesn't have any public incidents similar to Sunday's.


In fact, after reading this Bay Area News profile, he seems like a pretty great guy.

Diggs must have said something, man ...

Though we can't help but think if a player showed the same force, Ferguson might have thrown a flag.
