What do you get when you cross a lawyer and a demon from hell?

No changes occur. Or some might argue Ed Hochuli. At his busy practice in Arizona where he is a named partner, Hochuli specializes in Legal Malpractice and Professional Liability, Products Liability, and Personal Injury defense, to name a few. Does anyone see the humor in that besides myself?

After blowing a call in the Broncos/Chargers match up, Hochuli continued the adventure in the Saints/Vikings match up the other night. And the hate mail continues to flow. Instead of getting his eyes checked or reviewing the rule books (to fix his malpractice, you know), he is taking time to respond to all of the e-mails.

You are certainly free to have your opinions, but if you were a knowledgeable fan, you would understand that there are 7 officials out there, and you would not attribute all errors to the Referee. The face mask, for example, is no where near anything I'm looking at or supposed to be looking at when it happened.

It's popular right now to pile on Hochuli, because I blew the San Diego call. And there is certainly no requirement that anyone have any real knowledge of officiating in order to have an opinion. Fortunately, the NFL and my boss don't agree with you. You are free to have your own opinions, and since you took the time to write me, I figured I owed you the time to respond.

Maybe he should find a new hobby for his spare time.
