Is this the end for Ed Hochuli?

    Referee Ed Hochuli was at the center of another questionable call Sunday, flagging Julius Peppers for a roughing-the-passer penalty that wiped out Carolina’s interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter against Atlanta.
    After Matt Ryan’s pass was intercepted by Richard Marshall, Hochuli threw a flag and announced Peppers made a helmet-to-helmet hit on Ryan. It erased the touchdown and gave the Falcons a first down on a drive that ended with a punt.
    Replays showed Peppers made contact as Ryan released the ball, and appeared to hit him first with his shoulder.
    Fans booed loudly when the play was shown on the video boards at Bank of America Stadium.
    Just two weeks ago, Hochuli’s missed call helped Denver’s comeback 39-38 win over San Diego.

    My analysis: I have no idea what Drip's opinion is on this, AND he didn't even bother to credit AP for his blatant c&p.

    In five years, this will be part of the origin story for the supervillain known simply as "The Ref".

    Yes, I should have given credit to AP. 1,0000 and one pardons for such a sin. Thank you for being kind of enough to point out the error.

    I think it was pretty obvious it was from the AP.

    Still waiting for Drip's "analysis." What do you think, Drip? Is it the end for Ed Hochuli?
