Video: Brandon Stokley Ejected For Pimp Slapping Official’s Hand
When I first looked at it I thought Stokley had hit the official hand by accident. that he was just swinging his arm in disgust and it made contact with the official.
Upon further review Stokley intentionally slapped the official hand away because the official was telling Stokley to go to the bench after complaining about a non call.
I have always liked Stokley as a player, but I want you to watch what happens closely.
After not getting the penalty Stokley runs at least twenty yards at full speed toward the official. He pleads his case and when the official tells him to go to the bench he slaps the his hand away.
He slapped it away Money Mike Pimpin Style. If you touch an official you are ejected and he did it on purpose, so no question it was the right call.
Luckily for Stokley the media doesn’t consider him to be a “diva” receiver or this would be front page news.
But the reality is that the Broncos needed him in this game and he showed very bad judgment. He couldn’t keep his cool and it cost his team.
Any way you look at it very bad on Stokley’s part.
