I, to this day, think Sherman should have kicked his a*& for that cheap shot. Trent needs to shut up. I'll let a ref call me anything to get his game check.

Uh-oh - not the first time for this ref...

Pereira: Roy Ellison previously accused of verbal abuse

Fox Sports analyst Mike Pereira revealed Monday on "Fox Football Daily" that he once spoke with Ellison in connection with a similar incident when Pereira was the NFL's vice president of officiating.

"Years ago, he allegedly shouted and swore at players, and it was a big issue that I had to deal with," Pereira said of Ellison, the NFL's only full-time umpire. "I actually had to talk to him in the office to make sure that none of this is going on."

"So the fact that this happened twice now with the same individual has to really concern the league. And I know that they're taking a strong look at this."

Apparently Ellison has had a history of handing out verbal abuse. I don't condone this type of behavior if it's player to player, but the fact that this is an official, I think they should be held at a higher standard. These guys are basically policing football games to make sure the game is being played legally - there is no excuse for an official to curse at players or anybody for that matter.

I give them some latitude because they hear from the players and coaches all of the time. It definitely should not be the norm.

I think you already responded to this one in post #5. We call that a resentment... resend, re-feel. I disagree with the comment too.

Oh no wait! That was SkinsGuy. You're SkinsFan. Never noticed there were two of you.
