During the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, referee Shawn Hochuli asked the fans at Arrowhead Stadium to be quiet before announcing a penalty.
Hochuli turned on the microphone for a second before giving the call and could be heard saying, “Everybody shut up,” then announced that Jaguars player Arden Key had committed unnecessary roughness.
Shawn Hochuli entered the league in 2014 and has been a referee since 2018. He gained notoriety last postseason when he flagged Tom Brady for unsportsmanlike conduct.
