Per Adam Schefter: NFL ref suspended for comment to Trent Williams

Stories on this over at Yahoo Sports and ESPN if anyone's interested.

Apparently Williams is accused of directing a racial slur toward umpire Roy Ellison, which prompted the comments from the official

(more specifically, Williams told him, "F*** you n*****!" to which Ellison responded in kind).

 

Anyway, that pretty much sums it up, but if you're interested here are the links to the complete stories:

Y'all know the mic on the LG was working even though the league said it wasn't. Mike Pirera said he had to discipline the same ref for abusing players in the past.

$20 says we get a few phantom holding calls against is this week.

That's good news!  Normally, we get a ton of 'em.  A few would mean the refs are cleaning up their act.

Actually don't buy that.  If that were proven they would have suspended or fined Williams too or they might have given the ref a slap on the wrist.

I thought it was really convenient for the NFL when the mic apparently malfunctioned. :ph34r:
