Corrente refs Big Red's last game with Eagles

Throat cancer survivor.
Referee Tony Corrente and his crew are on the whistles this weekend for what in all likelihood will be Andy Reid's last game as head coach of the Eagles.

Corrente is an interesting guy. He survived throat cancer last year. Didn't know he had it until after he helped break up a tussle in a Steelers-Ravens game last year.

In addition to being a survivor  Corrente got in hot water this year for using colorful language while his mike was open. You can view it on Youtube.

Corrente was fined a game check for the verbal burst. He earns roughly $9,000 a game plus expenses.
