Former NFL quarterback Chris Simms shared a wild story about official Tony Corrente following the ref's controversial performance during MNF

The refs played a major role in the Monday night Football matchup of the Bears versus the Steelers.

Bears linebacker Cassius Marsh accused official Tony Corrente of “hip-checking” him just moments before Corrente flagged Marsh for taunting in the fourth quarter of Chicago’s 29-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.
