undeserved yellow card to Bassett, but otherwise a very impressive display.

It's very difficult to justify any tackle which is illegal in the NFL being anything less than a yellow!

Not sure what the NFL has got to do with it ?

The key for me is that Bassetts tackle was hands on the shoulders and by definition was not necessarily a dangerous tackle (which is AROUND the head or neck) it was just a high tackle, therefore could have been just a pen or at the very least use the TMO rather then relying on the AR's recollection of a quick incident. What made it look worse was Simpson taking his legs out.
