The Rat Hall of Fame that is. Turns out when Jason Tarver gave officials the middle finger twice while screaming obscenities at them, Mike Pereira was watching. Tarver’s actions bothered him so much he called the league office to tell them about it. He sums it up in his blog like this:
If you want to call me a whistleblower, then call me a whistleblower because I let the league office know about it.
We don’t call you a whistleblower, Pereira. We call you a snitch. An obviously perfect snitch, that is, judging from the way you defended the third worst call in the history of pro football*, simply known as the Tuck Rule, then changed your mind about it when it affected someone else:
I would support a rule change, although it took me a long time to get to this point. I’m sure it’s no consolation to the many Raiders fans around the country.
No, it isn’t … douchebag. Now go back to monitoring NFL games for crimes against officials, who, by the way, picked up the flag that so incensed Tarver. Meanwhile, I’m incensed too. I’m incensed about the caring about stuff that’s not important, while there’s little care about the stuff that is. More about that in a minute.
