The jerkoff who made the final call of the Green Bay Packers loss to the Seattle Seahawks is taking the Golden Tate route — denial.
At least Tate has now admitted that he pushed off. Lance Easley, the aforementioned scab ref who made the simultaneous possession and touchdown call to give Seattle the win, is insisting he made the correct call. That’s bold, especially considering every single other human being with a pair of working eyes knows he blew it.
“It was the correct call,” Easley told TMZ. “I didn’t do anything wrong.”
Noooooooo. You sure didn’t, dick.
Easley goes on to say M.D. Jennings, who intercepted the Seahawks’ final pass, did not have possession of the ball, even though he caught it first and brought it into his body.
“You have to not only have the ball, but have either two feet or a body part on the ground, and that never happened.”
“Put any other official who knows the rules and they would make the same call.”
This is brilliant stuff. I love it when people who clearly fucked up, and everyone knows they fucked up, still try to make up excuses and pretend they’re right rather than just saying, “hey, I may have messed up.”
That really makes you endearing. That’s really the manly way to go.
Anyway, fuck him and his explanation.
On another note, if you happen to be in the Santa Maria, California area and would like to talk to Lance in person. He works at this Bank of America.

We do not endorse threats or physical violence, so maybe mail him a bag of crap or something.
Lastly, we also found a website that belongs to Lance. He’s a member of the Worldwide Who’s Who, which is one of those organizations that tells people they’re great, they want to honor all their accomplishments and we’ll put you in our Who’s Who directory for this super-low fee.
There’s actually a fake certificate on the site that reads “Recognition for achievement in the highest order.” Achievement in what? Well, we’ll leave that up to the imagination.
Also from the site:
Where will you be in five years? In five years, Mr. Easley intends to advance within the banking industry. He hopes to become a Division 1 football official.
Good luck with that.
