Vontaze Burfict ejected for contact with official

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has done it again.

Burfict was just ejected for making contact with an official, a play after he was flagged for a late hit, after the second flag, the Titans punched it into the end zone for a 14-6 lead.

The Bengals were already playing without linebacker Kevin Minter, leaving them thin at the position.

It’s also likely going to make Burfict’s wallet thinner, as he’s the definition of a recidivist. Perhaps anticipating that, he left the field making the Johnny Manziel “money” signal with his hands.

He was suspended three games this year for an illegal hit, and some thought he should have been suspended two weeks ago for kicking Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix, though he avoided punishment for that one.

    Lol, Even on stories about other teams all you can think about is the Patriots. They own you man.

  2. Why is everyone, including the announcers, harp on this when there isn’t even footage of the supposed play? Half the stuff Burfict “does” is whack. The other half is the officiating crew checking a box by picking on 55. The other flag he got earlier was a joke too. Burfict clearly pulled up but momentum caused Home to touch the receiver as he went out of bounds. What a joke. Keep that narrative alive though even when you have to fake it to make it.

    Why do you bring the Pats into every thread?

  4. How much longer until we are done with the Marvin Lewis show? It’s beyond ridiculous. I’ve been done watching until he’s gone for a while now.

  5. The NFL chose not to suspend him after the last game so this is on them.

    Punt this turd right out of the league.

    Belicheat had hernandez. He’d fit right in!

    Yeah, cause the Patriots LOVE stupid players that take stupid penalties over and over again, and never seem to learn from their mistakes. He would last about a week in Foxboro. And that’s why the Bengals suck – they keep guys like this around. Hey Marv- you can’t fix stupid!

  8. Just curious – how many saw the play that we are all discussing here in such opinionated fashion? Anyone? Nope, didn’t think so. Hopefully you don’t serve on any juries in the near future. Absurd.

    Did you see him go over to the Titans fans in the end zone and give them the gears?

    I did.

    The turd has no class and you’re always defending him.

  10. At some point they’re just going to have to ban him from the league for safety of other players and officials.

  11. Dude doesn’t even care about his own safety, he’s knocked himself out of a few games in the past. So he certainly isn’t going to care about the safety of opposing players or officials caught in the crossfire.

  12. Vontaze – you are nowhere near good enough as a player to justify this BS.

    Good thing for you that your coach is the very less than mediocre Mr Enabler Marvin Lewis

    Yeah, right. It took you only 15 minutes to find and comment on a Bengals story.

  14. To the Bungles Burfict is a franchise player. And Mixon was worth the PR hit because the team’s reputation was already in the toilet.

    Any fanboys left to still defend this turd?

    Yes. Did you watch the video of both the late hit and the contact with the official?? His late hit out of bounds was a light tap and the RB sold it as a huge push. Complete BS. His contact with the official was AFTER THE OFFICIAL GRABBED HIM. Burfict did indeed make contact with the official, some overly sensitive senile 80-year old, and he threw that flag faster than he hits the early-bird dinner special at Showmars. That ref was tossing Burfict out of the game no matter what.

    The ref also didn’t seem to mind the Titan WR grabbing him to plead his case on another play though.

    Saw the play(s) and the bump, he deserved to be ejected. He sucks and the bengals suck.

    Well, good for you but you seem to be the only one in the country that has.

  17. Im getting curious as to why the bengals put up with burfict but wouldnt give odell thurman another chance. He was a better player and didnt seem nearly as bad.

  18. ok…i’m not a fan of Burfict or the Bengals, but i’ve been trying to find video of the penalty & contact and haven’t found it. The only video of a “late hit” was more like a “phantom call” at best.

    @Darin Gantt do you have video???

    He didn’t see the video when he wrote his first draft when he said that Burfict was flipping the fans off. If he did see it, he would have written that Burfict was making the Johnny Manziel money sign with his hands. You see, that’s what we have today in journalism be it sports or not; writing stories based on opinions or hearsay instead of facts.

  20. Both of the penalties were BS. If that were Von Miller there would have been no calls, therefore no ejection. You can see the official contact on CincyJungle.

    Lol. Your monomania is hilarious.

  22. You should post both replays because I just watched them and not sure either should have been called. Easy to hate the guy but come on, let’s not make something out of nothing.

    Why do you bring the Pats into every thread?

    Poor lil chip, she just can’t help it.

  24. This is all on reputation alone (same with the bulk of the comments). Neither play deserved a flag, and likely wouldn’t have received one if it was any other player. The contact was mild at best. He pushed away a refs arm. Not the best move, but based upon the quick draw on the flag Burfict was being targeted by the crew today.

    I’m not saying he earned his rep, but the calls were straight bs. I know people want the league to teach him a lesson, but right now the only lesson I can draw is that if they’re looking to kick him out he should go and get his money’s worth. Not really what the league should be saying

  25. long time bengal fan. decided to work out at half time. Bengals really stink. I was checking on game between sets. I didn’t miss much. Damn, when will my team ever win it all. and I didn’t even watch the last 7 seconds. I’m glad I missed them. The more I don’t watch this team the happier I am . haha
