INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An NFL referee lost his temper and used an obscenity during the Dolphins-Colts game Sunday, and it was obvious to everyone inside Lucas Oil Stadium and those watching on television.
It occurred when a member of referee Tony Corrente's crew asked for a conference following a penalty with 5:22 left in the game. Indy's defense had just been called for having 12 men on the field, and it appeared the question was about where to spot the ball.
As a second official called over to the referee, and with Corrente's microphone on, Corrente shouted `` What in the f--- are you guys doing?''
That part was heard by the crowd of 66,479, but did not make it on the air.
The rest of the discussion did, including Corrente explaining the spot was correct by shouting ``That was ... god---- it.''
CBS broadcaster Kevin Harlan immediately apologized.
