Default Targeting Rule is a joke !

Nobody can seem to get on the same page about this. What is the penalty and punishment. It seems to be subjective, and that's not good.

The problem for me is that when they review it and reverse the ejection they should be able to reverse the penalty as well.

Yeah, not being able to pick up the flag even though the review has shown there wasn't a penalty makes no sense.

I agree. But, as I said in another thread, I think if you start reviewing (and potentially overturning) penalties, then you start down a slippery slope. Next thing you know, someone will be calling for PI penalties to be reviewed; Holding penalties - Instant replay to see if the left tackle moved .0000856sec before the ball was snapped.

I hate, hate, hate the rule the way it is, but the above is the only thing I can see that makes sense as to why they wouldn't wave off the flag when a review comes out and says that it ACTUALLY WASN'T WHAT THE OFFICIALS SAID IT WAS.

Heath Cline was talking about this the other week after the UA-aTm game when one of Bama's players got flagged and ejected. He said that during an interview with a head of officials for one conference that the guy said the reason they weren't going to over turn the flag even if replay showed it was the wrong call was because they didn't want to hurt the officials feelings.
