    Default NFL says ref didn't give Vince Young a high five

    NFL says ref didn't give Vince Young a high five
    Posted by Michael David Smith on November 25, 2009 10:18 AM ET
    After the Tennessee Titans beat the Houston Texans on Monday night, Titans quarterback Vince Young appeared to exchange a high five with referee Jerome Boger.

    The league says that's not what happened.

    After the apparent high five became a topic of conversation on sports talk radio and on ESPN, the Houston Chronicle called the league to ask about it. And the league said there was no high five.

    "It was not Jerome Boger's intent to exchange a high-five with the player," a league spokesman told the paper. "As Vince Young took a knee on the game's final play, Jerome Boger jogged in with his right arm in the air to signify the play was over. That is the proper administrative signal for the referee.

    "As Young turned around, he saw Boger approaching the line of scrimmage with his arm raised. As Boger moved toward the line of scrimmage, he started to bring his arm down. However, before he lowered his arm, Young, moving towards the referee, raised his own arm and the two exchanged what appeared to be a quick high-five."

    So just because their hands were raised and their palms made contact, that does not constitute, in the official opinion of the NFL, a high five.
