Nothing, no flag.
These guys are simply out of their league. They're Div2a guys who call a much slower, less dangerous game. The 1a refs don't want to scab and risk getting blacklisted from the good ol' boys when they want to try to get to the nfl level.
I'm thankful that these guys scab and call games, because we wouldn't have any games otherwise, but they are outmatched at this point and the players are pushing the envelope on everything, which is threatening the health and safety of all involved,
