Fans Are Calling For NFL Investigation After Ref Tony Corrente Hip Checked Bears’ Cassius Marsh While Calling Taunting Penalty


Not only did ref Tony Corrente call one of the worst taunting penalties of the season, but he also hip-checked a Bears player in the process of doing so.

In the fourth quarter of the Bears-Steelers game, Bears’ Cassius Marsh was bizarrely penalized for taunting while staring down the sidelines after a play.

While running to his sideline, Corrente appeared to deliberately hip-check Marsh while calling pulling out his flag to call a taunting penalty.

Fans are now calling for the NFL to investigate the ref for hip-checking an NFL player.
