Tony Corrente swears through mic during Dolphins-Colts game
Referee Tony Corrente may be hearing from the league this week after he forgot to shut off his microphone and let an expletive fly.
Corrente and his crew were (somewhat heatedly) discussing a call during the fourth quarter of Indianapolis’ win over Miami when Corrente yelled “Godd***it”. The unfortunate moment not only was blasted through the stadium, but it was picked up by CBS’ broadcast. Announcer Kevin Harlan immediately apologized for the R-rated moment.

Current FOX analyst and former NFL VP of officiating Mike Pereira offered this comment via Twitter:
The league will certainly address Tony Corrente’s swearing on the field. It should not happen.
