To us you are an integral part of the NFL, just as some of the best players are, Ed. They make millions of dollars to do their job and yet make bone-head plays now and then. They sometimes blow an easy pass (throwing or receiving), fumble, etc. that a Pop Warner kid could make. Not every play involves them, and if they think they're hurting a little too much, they go sit down and breathe oxygen or get a massage, or whatever. You make literally thousands of decisions every game, and how many are wrong? Can you take a break and exit the game at your will? Not hardly. And to make one of your few wrong calls, and have it come at a critical time, is unfortunate but it is what it is and it's over. It just proves you are human, as we all are. Forgive yourself, Ed. You have a stature, presence, and attitude on the field that is so outstanding and important to us true fans, and you are still who you are-one of the greatest refs the NFL has ever known. Let the unkind or cruel words roll off your back, not that you don't feel horrible about the call. You wouldn't be a fan favorite if you showed or felt that the call meant nothing to you. You just need to get beyond this incident, and feel the appreciation we all share in having the privilege to watch you do your job. You truly add so much to the game and we're lucky to have you every Sunday for game day! All the best, Ed. You are very special to so many people.
Ron
