Lance Easley is best known as replacement ref No. 26, and days after making one of the most infamous calls in NFL history – one that was so controversial it led to the end of a lockout that, in turn, ended his Walter Mitty run of calling pro games – he isn't backing down.
"It was the correct call," Easley told TMZ.
Yes, TMZ. Who else? That's how big Easley's decision was to declare a contested Hail Mary a touchdown for Seattle rather than an interception for Green Bay – which is how virtually everyone else, but not the NFL itself, saw it. Even TMZ is chasing down replacement refs.
