Referee Pete Morelli fist bumps Carson Palmer after penalty call

By / 09.16.13

The Lions were on the short end of several controversial calls in their game against Arizona. Perhaps we now know the reason. Here’s Carson Palmer fist bumping a ref after a personal foul call.

Well, this seems odd and Tim Donaghy-ish.

Pete Morelli had just thrown a flag on Israel Idonije for diving at Carson Palmer’s leg (photo here). Yes, it was a penalty, a fairly obvious one actually. And yes, refs are there to protect quarterbacks. But this seems like conduct unbecoming an official.

In all, the Lions were flagged 8 times for 101 yards, the Cardinals 7 for 40 yards.

Detroit fans are putting on tinfoil hats, screaming conspiracy. With Lions tinted glasses, I understand their frustration. But let’s just call this what it is.

Two douchebags, one fist bump. That’s all.
