Report: Tony Corrente Named Referee for Packers-Seahawks NFC Championship

Tony Corrente has been named the referee for the NFC Championship game featuring the Seattle Seahawks hosting the Green Bay Packers, according to FootballZebras.com.

The website's Ben Austro writes:

This will be Corrente’s second consecutive season working the Conference Championship, after last year’s Broncos-Patriots game. This will be his 14th postseason assignment and his fifth Conference Championship. He also worked 5 Wild Card Playoffs, 3 Divisional Playoffs, and Super Bowl XLI. Notably, Corrente resigned his position as supervisor of officiating in the Pac-12 Conference in the middle of the past season.

I don't recall any controversy over officiating from last year's game, so this could be a good thing. Seattle is a very physical team; how tight they are on defensive holding calls may play a big part in the outcome.

I think I read that Corrente is flag happy, which could draw a few more of those holding/PI in the secondary on them. I don't expect this crew to allow a very physical game, like in Buffalo.

His crew is. This isn't his normal crew though.
