"Vulgar name" is kind of broad

Racial? Something more generic? Kind of hard to evaluate the story without more facts.
Boomer's show this morning said he called him

a bitch. I think the bigger part of the story is this same guy was suspended in 2013 for similar accusations.

Actually is one of the better Umpires in the game. Has worked 2 Super Bowl's and a number of Conference Championship games. The problem is his behavior can be erratic and an incident like this calls into question his work on the field if his vindictiveness causes him to call/not call certain borderline fouls where the league will do the equivalent of saying the play stands when it comes to grading officials (won't downgrade, but won't highlight as something done correctly).
Players call these officials a lot worse.

Unless he slung a racial epithet his way, this is b.s. imo

Thatís what I thought the ref did was to use a racial epithet.

I'd argue that it's an individually-directed invective which can't be justified by general players call officials... Unless there is specific history between these two people and this was continuation or retaliation.
Saying I'm gonna get you

is likely the reason for the dismissal, or at least one would hope

I don't think it needs to be racial for him to be suspended

The Refs are suppose to be the ones in charge. You can't be calling players "vulgar" names.

never mind this, its the player that said that, not the ref.
It wasn't racial

Hughes yelled at the official "you call me a bitch, I'll catch you". According to SI, he later denied the whole thing (guess he didn't see the cameras filming), and said he couldn't recall if the guy had called him a bitch.

Video of Hughes yelling at Ellison
SI quotes Hughes denying any of it happened
