Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is very emotional and a fiery guy during the games, so when he feels that his team was cheated out of a call he is not shy and will let you hear about it. That’s exactly what the poor referees working the Thursday Night Football match up against the Arizona Cardinals figured out.
Russell Wilson was looking deep down the field to a wide open Sidney Rice, but Cardinals rookie defensive back Tyrann Mathieu made up some last second ground and ultimately got caught up with Rice as they tumbled to the ground.
Wilson and Rice immediately looked for the flag, while Carroll went charging down the field to get in the refs face and make his case for the pass interference call.
Check out this GIF from CJ Fogler to see just how upset Carroll was:
Unfortunately for Carroll, the refs made the right call.
It was unintentional contact and the two players just had their legs get tangled. To be fair, it looked much worse live than it did when the action was slowed down on the instant replay.
