Lions LB ejected for touching referee with helmet


Don't hit the referees.

It's simple. Referees are there to enforce rules and would prefer not to be touched.

Lions linebacker Jamie Collins forgot these rules on Sunday.

As stupid as this was and as thrilled as we are as Bears fans to get this unexpected advantage in the game, we have to admit Collins wasn't doing anything malicious.

Collins was trying to demonstrate Bears running back David Montgomery leading with the crown of his helmet while complaining about a no-call and unwisely chose the referee to be his demonstration partner.

Use a teammate!

Twitter had some thoughts.

Yeah, don't do that.
