Bengals Player: Officials Have Provoked, Cursed Vontaze Burfict Multiple Times

Pacman Jones apology

Controversial Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was tossed from today's game against the Titans after "making contact" with a referee.

Burfict, who drew a personal foul a few plays prior to his ejection for a late hit on Murray out of bounds, has been fined and suspended on multiple occasions in his career for unsportsmanlike conduct and late hits.

The down judge, Jeff Bergman, had a hand out to hold Burfict back from more back-and-forth with a Titans offensive lineman, and Burfict knocked his hand away. As referees separated Burfict and several Titans players, Burfict pushed a referee off of him.

Logan Melgar was found dead in embassy housing and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is probing his death as a homicide. . Donald Bolduc, then commander of Special Operations Command-Africa, was suspicious of the two SEALs' story from the start.

Other players might not have been subject to as harsh of a punishment but, at the same time, at some point Burfict has to realize that his history means that he's always going to be under a microscope.

Burfict served a three-game suspension earlier this season for hitting a defenseless player and has reportedly accrued over $300,000 worth of fines over his career.

During his five-year National Football League career, Burfict has forfeited more than $800,000 due to suspensions and fines for numerous penalties ranging from unnecessary roughness, personal fouls and roughing the passer.
