He was quickly ejected. Just can imagine the how much the NFL's pocketbook swells on this one.:barman:

Titans safety Donnie Nickey punched the wrong guy during Sunday's game against the Chargers.

At the end of a play in the second half, Nickey was on the ground with Chargers offensive lineman Scott Mruczkowski, and Nickey didn't appreciate the fact that Mruczkowski was taking his time about getting off him. So as they finally started to separate, Nickey took a swing at Mruczkowski.

Unfortunately for Nickey, he missed Mruczkowski and instead punched referee Bill Leavy.

Leavy wasted no time in ejecting Nickey from the game, and Nickey can expect to be fined this week.

He's one from nfl.com (http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2010103107/2010/REG8/titans@chargers#tab:watch) It's probably second from the top.

Not much of a punch but a ref is a ref and a punch is a punch.

Not really a punch, but whatever... I'm just glad to see the Titans lose.

Some things never change... the Titans players & coaches were arguing the call :rolleyes:

It looks like his hand is open, not a fist, which leads me to believe he was trying to shove the Charger, not punch him. He missed though, and hit an official so it's his own dumb fault. Still I don't think it was a 'punch'.

you cannot sugarcoat that he hit a ref and he must face the rath of Goodelle

Dosent work by the soft liberal approach, this is football and I hope he gets tossed for the season

I watched the game. Nickey didn't try to hit the ref. He took a swing at another player but missed. He probably would've been ejected anyway for taking the swing, though!!

I'm not sugarcoating anything, but there is a difference between a shove and a punch.

It was a punch... Intended for a Jags player, but a punch nonetheless.

Striking an official is striking an official. Doubt Goodell cares what u ment to do.
