That was pretty accurate, in real time it looked like that. The replay showed, a little too much contact from Newman. I think we both agree that it probably shouldn't have been thrown. The problem was Newman put himself in a position where the flag could be thrown. Keep your hands off the receiver downfield!
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
