NFL looks into altercation involving Bucs' Aqib Talib

Stephen F. Holder and Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times report the NFL is "looking into" a profanity-laced altercation between Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib and a member of the officiating crew after the Bucs' 17-10 loss at Baltimore, said Greg Aiello, the league's senior vice president of public relations.

Talib expressed displeasure with a pass-interference penalty called on rookie Myron Lewis late in the second quarter by field judge Boris Cheek, and the two exchanged words on the field.

After the game, while walking through the tunnel to the locker room, Talib volleyed a series of expletives at the officiating crew, whose locker room was a short distance from that of the Bucs. That prompted an unidentified member of referee Carl Cheffers' crew to respond, "You play like a (expletive)."

Talib became more demonstrative and was restrained by teammates, then he responded by telling the official, "I'll (hit) you in your (expletive) mouth.

Is he TRYING to get suspended? What an idiot.
