Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree was tripped up in the end zone during today's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by an odd object.
That object: a referee's hat.

Yes, a replacement referee's hat thrown right into Ogletree's route slipped him up. Luckily for the Cowboys, Ogletree got right up and was unharmed, but the question remains, "Why did the ref thrown his hat into the end zone?"
Referees usually toss their hat to mark a spot on the field. Not inside an end zone. This again concerns me when I know more about football than these replacement "referees".
