Raiders' Richard Seymour is ejected
By James Walker
Frustration continues to mount for the Oakland Raiders. Oakland defensive tackle Richard Seymour was ejected in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Seymour and Dolphins guard Richie Incognito were jawing most of the game. The Dolphins are thrashing Oakland, 34-0. And, in a moment of frustration, Seymour put his hand in the face of Incognito and officials threw him out.
It was called a "punch" by officials, but that is debatable. If anything, it was a weak attempt at a punch. But Seymour has a reputation for questionable play, and that likely played a factor.
Last season, Seymour was ejected for hitting Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger after the play. Expect the league to look into this ejection by Seymour and determine if he deserves a fine.
