Last week, San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde was hit with a ‘taunting penalty’ for flexing his guns in the ‘no flex zone’ against the Arizona Cardinals. Furthermore, the NFL fined reprimanded Hyde by slapping him with a fine of $9,115!
So why wasn’t Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy slapped with a ‘taunting penalty’ when he spiked the ball on the 49ers sidelines? See for yourself in the video below, as McCoy runs for 22 yards downfield before being pushed out of bounds by rookie fourth-round pick (No. 133) CB Rashard Robinson.
What happens next is questionable as McCoy should’ve been hit with a penalty while Hyde gives him a long ‘mean mug!’
