Default Should the Targeting Rule be reviewable?

Just tuned in on the South Carolina vs Central Florida game and a Gamecock player was called for a targeting play that warranted an ejection. The play went under review and the ejection was lifted but the penalty stood.

Would the NFL become more respectable if targeting hits became reviewable?

What makes no sense to me is that if you overturn the ejection, how can it still be targeting? The rule is very clear that you're using the crown of the helmet, so if that didn't occur, why wasn't the penalty overturned as well?

I don't understand that as well.

Unfortunately the NFL doesn't want to slow down the game any more than it has to. They'll probably keep fining guys until defensive backs get the message. Because if you can just overturn the calls, guys won't be afraid to level receivers. Unless maybe the fines are increased.

my understanding is that they can go back and review to see if it was an incidental illegal hit, or if it looked like the player was willfully making the illegal hit (hence, targeting)...So the penalty may still stand, but the ejection that comes along with the determination that the defender was/wasnt trying to target and hurt the opposing player can still be reversed.

Yeah that is how I understand it. Targeting implies intent. If they review and determine the illegal contact was incidental the ejection can be overturned, however, there was still illegal contact to the head & neck area and that is a penalty even if it isn't determined to be 'targeting' by the word of the rule.

Yeah it should be. The speed of the game and impact of the hits, Refs are quick to flag a player, even if it's shoulder to shoulder.

Targeting a player is basically launching and leading with the head to take out a player.

A lot of the time it's just hard hits that draw flags, even if the player does not aim or lead to the head and no helmet contact is initiated.
