NFL ref receives a hefty fine for swearing

NFL referee Tony Corrente was fined  by the NFL for his use of an expletive on an open microphone during the recent Doplphins-Colts game.

Corrente was discussing the spotting of the ball when he swore at an official while his mic was accidentally left on. The offending one-liner will cost Corrente an entire paycheck.

"There was, (expletive)," Corrente yelled.

A CBS play-by-play announcer quickly apologized for the foul language, saying  Corrente didn't know his microphone was on. The NFL made it clear that the league did not appreciate the profanity:

"This conduct is inappropriate for a game official," the league wrote in a statement. "Corrente has apologized to the Colts' organization and we are confident it will not happen again."
