Here’s the Resume of the Ref That Screwed the Packers

Lance Easley

His name is Lance Easley and he’s the official who somehow signaled touchdown on the final play of the Green Bay Packers loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

What does this guy do when he’s not fucking up the outcome of football games? We’re glad you asked.

Here are the bullet points.

  • vice president of small-business banking at Bank of America
  • president of the Los Padres Officials Association (they officiate high school sports)
  • officiates high school and junior college football and basketball in central California
  • has never officiated a game at higher than the Division III college level prior to this season
  • attended the Stars and Stripes Academy for Football Officials, a three-day training academy earlier this year

The guy that runs that training academy — former Division I official Karl Richins — had this to say about Easley.

“I got to know Lance at a June academy I worked at in Reno and when he came to my academy in July,” Richins said. “He’s a very polite, good Christian gentleman, a good father to his son, Daniel, who was at my academy as well.

“But was Lance ready to work at the NFL level? Absolutely not.”

“At no time do we say, ‘We can train you for the NFL.’ After three days at our academy, Lance was determined by our staff not to be ready for Division I officiating.”

Good work, NFL. You’re a real solid operation.

    Well now that the lockout is settled he can go back to the Panty League or whatever where his talents are appropriate.

    Q: Did Lance-a-less sleep in a Holiday Inn on Sunday night ?
    Thank God and St.Lombardi that this fiasco is finally over….
    Though we will never know if the NFL would’ve been stoopid enough to let screw up another game…

    Go Pack
    Time to kick some NO butt…

    Roger “Bad”ell should be flogged in public (preferably on the 50 yard line at Lambeau) for allowing this HS ref dufus to put on a ref’s uniform let alone actually ref a game.

    Goodell is an idiot & how he got promoted from making xerox copies for the NY Jets front office to Comissioner of the NFL is the question of the century. He is a prime example of the Peter Principle as he has definitely risen/been promoted to his level of incompetence !!!!!!!

    Go pack
