That ref was just rude.
After throwing a touchdown against the Saints, Newton went through his normal routine of retrieving the ball so he can give it a fan.
Not this time initially, as the referee would have none of it, taking the ball and tossing it to the ball boy.
He tried to keep it away from Newton as well — until the “Dab Master” snatched it away from him and proceeded with his normal touchdown routine.
