Surprisingly, Bills' Jerry Hughes Did Not Take Too Kindly To Allegedly Being Called The B-Word By One Ballsy Official
On one hand, I have it on the good authority of my own common sense that NFL officials get called worse than "bitch" on a bi-quarterly basis. On the other hand, NFL officials aren't having whistles blown at them and flags thrown in their general direction while risking their physical and mental health by actively cutting short their life span in the name of sport, so catching an attitude in "disciplining" by use of profound personal digs is bound to elicit an "enough is enough" style reaction. I'd typically say the league is sure to have some stern words for a player that attacked the tunnel like it was the goddamn 'A' gap in order to offer up a threat to an associative employee that was as clear as it was empty..

All in all, when your job is primarily to stay the hell out of the way while bringing some sense of regulation to a sport that would probably just be considered barbarianism if not for the presence of a ball, I'd say no good can come from explicitly stoking the competitive fire of a combatant who is tending to his wounds. Like, maybe make sure to steer clear of any and all words that so much as rhyme with "bitch", because even that confusion - which there's precedent to believe didn't exist in this case - is liable to instigate the type of blind, instinctive rage that had a professional battering ram sounding like it gave him immediate Alzheimer's...
