The Texans beat the Dolphins 30-10 on Sunday, but not everyone was happy after the win.

Not only did Houston start off slowly before pulling away, but defensive lineman Antonio Smith was not happy with the referees for allowing Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito to play dirty.

Incognito has a reputation for being the dirtiest player in the league, so the charge was not surprising.

“A dirty player being let to play dirty … Ricky Incognito,” Smith said, likely getting his first name wrong on purpose, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Nick Mathews. “Everything that’s illegal that can be done on the football field he does it, but mainly he was hitting people after the play, sliding down on your leg grabbing your ankle and trying to twist to break your ankle and he was doing it right in front of the referees and he was still in the game.”

Smith was upset the referees didn’t address the dirty play.

“It’s the referees’ job to stop him from doing it because everything that I would do to stop him I would get a penalty for,” he said.

Well, Antonio, they are replacement refs. You expect them to do their homework and know to look out for Ricky err Richie’s shenanigans? Maybe the refs will be on him next week. Smith meanwhile was actually credited with half a sack in the win.
