Vontaze Burfict ejected vs. Titans, taunts fans as he leaves field

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was ejected from Sunday's game after making contact with an official, but one of his teammates believes he is getting provoked by those in charge. "Burfict has complained to Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, a member of the league's competition committee, but those complaints have not been brought to the league office, an NFL spokesman said Monday".

Two personal fouls, though, mean an ejection no matter what.

Burfict was flagged for a late hit on DeMarco Murray, then two plays later referee Jeff Triplette announced Burfict had made contact with an official.


The Bengals linebacker has been among NFL's most suspended and most frequently fined players.

Burfict talked to some fans behind the team bench and raised both arms in the air before finally going to the locker room.

Surprisingly enough, this was Burfict's first time being ejected from a game in his career. Green was tossed in Jacksonville for fighting.
