No need for offsetting penalties. Refs actually got this one right
Disagree. Maybe if Evans just shoved back I could see just punishing the instigator, but Evans threw a punch that took another player’s helmet off.

The refs cannot allow that to not be a penalty.

Since the beginning of time the retaliatory blow is what is normally flagged. The only time the instigator is the only flag is when there is no retaliation. And that’s fair. You earn not having that second flag by keeping your cool. Evans clearly didn’t do that. Might have been the worst officiating in that game.

I know emotions were high, the players were anxious to play against someone other than their own team, and Lat has a history with Evans dating back to their first matchup, but he needs to learn to control that. Didn't end up hurting us too bad yesterday, but in the future it could result in the difference in the game. Got to be better than that.

Evans actually started the whole thing. Right after the play was over, he put his hand up around Lattimore's throat. That's when Latt shoved him off. Evans then knocked off Latt's helmet. Latt got all of the blame for the exchange from the refs.

Probably because refs could only do based on what they saw. Fans could see the whole thing from a replay.
So the refs saw Lattimore push Evans, threw the flag, and then went blind at the moment Evans charged at Lattimore and pushed him in the head/neck area, causing his helmet to fly off?

The refs saw it.

Yup, hand to the throat and a little throat shove.
