Bears linebacker Cassieus Marsh, who had just been called up to the Chicago Bears active roster, made a huge play against the team he spent pre-season with, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Marsh was able to sack Ben Roethlisberger in the 4th quarter, which would have been a crucial play had he not been flagged for taunting.
Flag comes in, automatic 1st down. Bears go on to lose the game.
Here’s the taunting call below:
These taunting penalties 🤮

Following the play, the NFL’s senior VP of Officiating took to Twitter to explain the call.
NFL SVP of Officiating Perry Fewell on the Cassius Marsh taunting penalty from Monday night: “He takes several steps towards the Pittsburgh bench, posturing towards their sideline.”
Once again, the league isn’t backing off the emphasis on taunting.pic.twitter.com/QzH6fl02XK

We'll do anything to justify the unjust after the fact.
Lack of accountability, and blind backing of others underperforming in the profession is a massive problem. https://t.co/WcHku3R4xe
