    I apologize if this is a d_b, but ACC official Ron Cherry had the call of the year in the Maryland-NC State debacle on Saturday...

    Isn't that the exact same thing that (insert notable ex-NFL referee) said one time? I want to say they even kept the clip and used it in one of the Madden games.

    Dreith is also known among football fans for his unique explanation of a personal foul penalty during a 1986 game between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets. After the Jets' Marty Lyons (misidentified as Mark Gastineau during Dreith's call) tackled Bills quarterback Jim Kelly to the ground and started to repeatedly punch him in the head, Dreith announced to the crowd:

    We have a personal foul, on number 99 of the defense, after he tackled the quarterback, he's giving him the business down there, that's a 15-yard penalty.[1]

    I remember it, but not well enough to say who the ref or the teams were. But yes, this ref was stealing someone else's "business".

    Didn't Red Cashion also use the "giving him the business" line in a Cowboys game?

    My buddy sent that clip to me a few weeks ago. Twice. And it never gets old.

    That's not Ben Dreith, though. Still a good clip.

    Is there anything YouTube can't provide? Awesome clip.
