Adam Jones goes on expletive-ridden rant about refs

New, comments

Apparently, Adam Jones is ready to blame the refs after Saturday's crushing loss.

Adam Jones was one of two Bengals players to draw a personal foul with less than two minutes remaining in Saturday night's Wild Card matchup that saw the Bengals fall short to the Steelers.

He quickly took to Instagram to go on an expletive-filled rant over the referees blowing game. The video has since been deleted. As awful as the last two minutes of the game were, I'm not sure the refs can be blamed.

The since-deleted Instagram post heard Jones says, "******* refs did a horrible ******* job. You got Joey Porter ******* in the middle of the ******* field, talking **** to everybody and then when someone say something to him he only push me on the ******* field."

Sports Illustrated writer Kenny Ducey captured the video before it was deleted:

According to Joe Danneman, Vontaze Burfict said after the game that Joey Porter, the Steelers' linebackers coach, who was questionably in the middle of the field was cursing at Jones, leading to the penalty.

After deleting his original post, Jones posted this:

Omg !!

Jones was in tears after the game.

And, here's Joey Porter in the middle of the field, when he has clearly has no business being in the middle of the field.
