Referee for Seahawks-49ers tilt? Tony Corrente

The referee for Thursday’s Seattle-San Francisco game is Tony Corrente, according to FootballZebras.com.

That’s the same Tony Corrente who bowed out as the head of Pac-12 officiating in October.

Corrente has been an NFL official since 1999 and has done three Seahawks games during the Pete Carroll era. Seattle is 1-2 in those games, winning at Houston last year and losing home games against Cincinnati in 2011 and Kansas City in 2010.

Omiously, a Google search of Corrente and “flag-happy” yields no shortage of responses, though ESPN’s weekly officiating update shows that Corrente’s crew is middle-of-the-pack this year in throwing flags, at 16.5 penalties per game.
