According to Black Sports Online, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman posted on his Facebook page that he hired Lance Easley to officiate a charity softball game that he put together. He’s the referee that blew a huge call on Monday Night Football that prompted the NFL to get a deal done with the regular officials.
“Remember the Ref who called TD during the Green Bay Game Monday Night??? His name is Lance Easley and he is going to Umpire for us July 7th! Don’t be surprised if a few flags are thrown,” Sherman wrote.
Leave it to Sherman to make a move like this.
