A term or phrase used to describe a situation when a referee throws a penalty flag in football, when there obviously should not be a penalty on the play.
Bob: "Wait, why did the ref call pass interference on that play? No one touched him."
Jim: "I know. That's unnecessary refness." The ref can't keep the flag to himself for more than a minute.
