Oakland Raiders coach apologizes for flipping off refs

Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver was caught on camera showing referees the middle finger, not once, but twice on Sunday. FOX Sports’s Mike Pereira and former NFL vice president of officiating was so outraged that he personally reached out to the league to make sure they were aware of Tarver’s behavior.

“If you want to call me a whistleblower, then call me a whistleblower because I let the league office know about it,” Pereira wrote on FoxSports.com. “This kind of behavior is totally unacceptable.”

Tarver is now apologizing for his actions.

“I apologize for my action on the sideline of yesterday’s game. It was in the heat of the moment,” Tarver said. I regret drawing attention away from the Raiders players and what they accomplished.”
