(UPI) -- A controversial call on Raiders cornerback Mike Jenkins led the team's defensive coordinator to show an official just how upset he was with the call.

Jason Tarver let out a string of expletives, paired with him waving his middle finger at the ref. Jenkins got a personal foul for a hit to the head of a Steelers receiver, which prompted Tarver's reaction.

Tarver was hit with an estimated $40,000 fine for the display, which aired on national television. The fine is the same amount the NFL fined then-Titans defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil for shooting the bird at an official in 2010.
