The Fail Mary. This will probably be the only time we mention it this week because who gives a shit? The Green Bay Packers got robbed and that’s that. But of course people are dredging up Lance Easley, the ref who made that shit call.
“Hey! Remember that time that you royally fucked the Green Bay Packers?”
“Why yes, I do. Let’s talk about it so I can promote my book!”
The Green Bay Press Gazette got on that train this week because… quality journalism!
They basically went over the same shit that’s been gone over a million times. In short, Easley still feels he made the right call and he wasn’t paying any attention to pass interference, blatant or otherwise.
And then this. Easley would love to visit you all in Green Bay!
“I’d love to come to Green Bay someday to speak with people and let them know, just share my heart with them,” Easley says. “I’d just tell them that, ‘Hey, this is what happened, this is what I saw from my perspective.’ I think that most people see it, and they go, ‘Oh, I can see why you thought what you did, or why you saw what you saw.’ I think when people hear me explain it, they’re a little bit more empathetic. They see me as a human being, and not just some guy that had any stake in the game or anything.
“I was in a tough spot. Any referee is in a tough spot, but we were the guys who weren’t even supposed to be there, so throw that into it. And, you know, I think that’s a great lesson that everybody goes through. People say, ‘Well, I wasn’t supposed to be there.’ No, you were there, so you’re supposed to be there.”
In other words, could someone please pay me for a speaking engagement? I would be happy to accept your insults so long as there’s money involved.
This guy is a motivational speaker now, you know. He travels the country telling audiences the uplifting story of how you can be a total fuck up and then turn that into a bunch of money. Or something like that…
And then you can also buy his book, which has a similar theme.
If there is a Packers fan who has terminal cancer, you know what to do.
laughing loudly, awesome
I am not really joking. …
When Michael Jackson died, I went out to celebrate and consumed more than a few gin and tonics. If Lance Easley met his untimely demise, I would do the same but on a far greater scale.
Good one, Wolfie.
Or, just get a Barrett .50 and see if you can make that 1.5 mile shot.
A stain on humanity….
Why is the NFL, an organization that seems to be overregulating everything, allowing this guy to profit from one of the darkest moments in professional sports history…..
Motivational speaker my ass. What I see is the Geico commercial with Pinocchio as the motivational speaker and Easley as the loser looking at Pinocchio as Pinocchio says you have potential and his nose grows to great lengths. The only difference is Pinocchio’s nose grows so long that it does expose Easley’s heart as he wishes and we can all delight in his willingness to share his heart with us. How touching it would be.
Ok…here’s what I sent to the article’s author…[email protected] (I think..double check that)
Ok…are you serious? Do you seriously think you can convince ANYONE to feel for this guy? It was a horrible call and he spent a LOT of time in the Seattle press afterward bragging about it…doing cameos/promos etc. This guy is an ass.
You just opened up HUGE can of worms….If you were trolling, then you really did something seriously wrong and your article is complete trash.
Either way, you lack a LOT of common sense with regards to our fan base.
My guess is that this email is one of the more pragmatic ones you will get.
Good luck buddy.
Bruce Irvin said a prayer for Corey Linsley. FUCK THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS UP
Easley is an unrepentant douchebag. There’s not much criticism on his Facebook page because he bans anyone who slightly questions him. Gawd I wish this guy would stay under his rock.
Easley can go fuck himself.
Anyone have a high powered rifle? Seriously though, like ice bowl said why is the nfl letting this guy make a profit off the NFL’s name? Every broadcast you hear the phrase any accounts of the game without the NFL’s consent is strictly prohibited
Monty…please stop giving this guy pub.
You know you fudge packin fags are goin down tomorrow night. Oh yeah bring IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are the next great example in the NFL for dynasties.
I took a big, steaming nasty shit yesterday and then the phone rang. I answered it, came back and the piss and TP was still there, but the deuce was missing.
Now I know where it went. And it can type.
Lol when other teams fans come on here to comment. You couldn’t even pay me money to look at a blog about another team.
Very excited for tomorrow night!!! GO PACK GO
He’s the 12th fag. A lonely, pathetic, sexually abused queer who feels the need to call us fags who claims to be a diehard Seacocks fan, but in reality is secretly a Whiners fan. He must have a Fat Head of a naked Kaepernick pinned on his wall which he probably masturbates to it wishing some day he and that fag wake up in bed together slapping balls. Once again, go fuck yourself you retarded piece of mongoloid shit.
That Shehawks “fan” practically lives in our comments section. Funny. Dude, we have Championships and Super Bowl wins in EVERY decade since the inception of the NFL except the 80’s and 90’s… Chew on that one little fella’. Oh! We also have 13x the amount of hardware that you do. Fuck off.
I don’t know what made me nauseous, the seahag troll or this story, but now I’m queasy…..
I am pretty sure if Lance Easley went to Green Bay his safety (not that I give shit) would be in question.
Oops. Excuse the typo. Turn the 90’s into the 70’s. We didn’t win one in the 50’s but who gives a shit? Why you picking my post apart when I’m getting at a Seahawks fan? Calling out my fan hood? Don’t be a d-bag. Does this view look like I’m even a fan? http://i.imgur.com/2kunmT0.jpg
We also failed to win one in the naughts.
Asking if you were a fan was a joke, although I can see the misinterpretation. Don’t be the guy who brags about stuff that isn’t true. Despite a typo you still missed two decades. That makes for a loss of credibility in an argument. You don’t want to lose any street cred on Velp avenue.
The first Superbowl was played in and won by the Packers in 1967. Green Bay won it again in ’68. Then 29 years later they won it in ’97, and won their 4th Superbowl in 2011, 14 years after that.
FYI, this Seattle Seahawks fan that keeps posting is a real gem. A real fan sticks to their own team’s threads, just saying.
Oh noze!!! You said 45 was won in 2011!!! You’re such a dipshit Don Q. Dude, who gives a fuck if someone misstates/mistypes some quick fucking info. You promptly corrected me. You win the comments for a day. I was in a car, in a hurry, between appointments and errands. Pull the almanac out if your asses. Why would another Pack “fan” get in a fellow fan when a Seahag is in the building? The psychology of the internet is something to behold.
Dude SB45 was won in 2011, February 6th. You can say it was the 2010 season but it’s still the same decade.
All I’m saying is don’t brag about false facts. It sounds silly.
C’mon dude. “False facts” What are those? I feel you, but don’t be so quick to correct someone when sometimes you sound kinda’ dumb yourself. Everyone makes a mistake now and then. Is this shit really that important?
