Lance Easley, the replacement official at the center of the controversy at the end of last year’s Green Bay-Seattle game, will have a book coming out in August entitled “Making the Call: Living With Your Decisions.” The cover has an endorsement from Tony Dungy and is about how he was prepared to handle the effects of one decision because of his Christian faith.
Easley was also the official at Richard Sherman’s charity softball game yesterday. Fittingly, I suppose, Golden Tate was named the MVP of the softball game. Afterwards, Easley had as many autograph requests as the players involved, which included several Seahawks along with Larry Fitzgerald and Terrell Owens. If you were expecting him to question his decision, though, Green Bay fans, think again.
“Players, coaches – all of us fans – we know it’s never happened before,” Easley said. “So I just happen to be stuck in the middle of it. I made a call. It was the correct call, even though Green Bay fans probably will never say it’s correct. But it was a difficult call, and it’s just one you don’t want.”
