NFL official: Reggie taunted

There has been much discussion about Reggie Bush's touchdown celebration/taunting in Sunday's game with the Chicago Bears.

Some in the media have suggested that since no penalty was called on Bush his antics weren't all that bad.

Well, well, well.

On NFL Network tonight, NFL vice president of officiating Mike Pereira reviewed Bush's touchdown.

Pereira had no problem with Bush's flip into the end zone. But Bush's pointing at the Bears defense was, in Pereira's words "direct taunting.'' Pereira also said Bush should have been flagged on the play and if a similar play happens in the Super Bowl, officials have been told to throw the flag.

So that should end the ridiculous argument that because there was no flag there was no harm.
