Bears fans are not happy with ref Tony Corrente after his officiating of the Bears-Steelers game this weekend.
Corrente made one of the more bizarre taunting penalty calls of the season, but what really angered fans was that he also hip-checked a Bears player in the process.
There’s been mass outrage on social media, calling for the NFL to investigate the ‘disgraceful’ refereeing decisions.
This was just called taunting. The officiating in the NFL continues to be a disaster. This entire game has been pathetic. pic.twitter.com/08UgyGyhJC

Tony Corrente leaned into the contact and then held his flag toss like a walk off three pointer. What a joke pic.twitter.com/MhNlNVewJx

Why did the ref hip check the player, then throw the flag? pic.twitter.com/zcuyyHgSoJ

NFL needs to suspend that Ref. He intentionally stuck his butt out ,so Bears player could run into him and then threw a flag.

Do you think Corrente should be investigated for this?
