Raiders defensive coordinator gives ref the middle finger twice

The most Raider thing that an NFL defensive coordinator could do is give a game official the middle finger twice. Well, get caught on TV giving the finger twice.

Jason Tarver, the Raiders' defensive coordinator, was really upset with an official during Oakland's 21-18 win over the Steelers on Sunday. So he did what anyone wearing silver and black and not carrying a knife or shiv of some sort would do: he gave the the official a birdie or two. Via Deadspin's Tim Burke:


Naturally, former ref boss and current FOX Sports contributor Mike Pereira snitched on Tarver. Tarver is no doubt flinging the birds at Pereira away from the cameras right now.

Tip o' the hat to CBS Sports.
