As we previously mentioned, the Baltimore Raven's coach John Harbaugh was signaling for a ref to come talk to him and he had stepped out onto the field.
That was a big mistake. It was unsportsmanlike conduct and he was penalized for harassing the ref.
He claimed he was just trying to ask the ref for a timeout, and the fans all believed him. Or they didn't. It didn't matter. The ref penalized their coach, so they did all they could do…
They let their opinions be heard by chanting "bullsh-t!"

Wow, those are some angry fans.
In this clip (above), the Baltimore Raven's coach John Harbaugh was signaling for the ref to come over and talk to him.
He had stepped onto the field, and, well, that's not cool - especially because the current refs are just scabs, filling in for the real refs who are locked out.
The NFL wants to keep coaches from taking advantage of these inexperienced refs (mainly because they're awful as referees) so they hit the coach with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. The fans, naturally, showed their displeasure with a rousing chant of "bullsh-t" that aired live on TV!
Check out the video (above) to see how coach Harbaugh tries to play off his misconduct and hear the fans react. Yikes!!

According to Ray Lewis, when football players aren’t out on the field, crime rates rise.
The Ravens linebacker explained that there is a segment of the population that is both a high risk for becoming criminal and loves football.
“There’s too many people that live through us, people live through us. Yeah, walk in the streets, the way I walk the streets, and I’m not talking about the people you see all the time.”
Ray hopes that the contracts can be negotiated quickly so the players don’t cause any real-life problems.
“There’s people who are really struggling for real,” Lewis said. “There’s real struggles out there.”
