I have no idea how Cary Williams was not ejected on this play. Laying your hands on a ref is an automatic ejection. This is a shove if there ever was one.
Whether he knew it was a ref or not, whether he thought he was shoving a player DOES NOT MATTER. We saw Justin Smith get tossed for laying his hands on a ref a couple years back, even though it was one hand pushing the ref away without seeing him.
There is nothing to be done at this point, but that does not make it any less of a BS play. The 49ers have played plenty of bad football, and tossing Williams has nothing to do with their struggles, but these are serious rules that need to be enforced.
