Richard Sherman Hires NFL Replacement Ref For Charity Softball Game


Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman loves to make a splash or bring attention to himself.  With so much free time during this off-season, Sherman is going to bring some attention to himself, and poke the Packers a little bit.

Sherman is hosting a charity softball game in July, and he hired a special guest referee to take part in the festivities.

Sherman wrote on the Facebook page for the Richard Sherman Celebrity Softball Game that the special guest umpire will be Lance Easley, the most famous of the replacement refs who handed the Seahawks a win over the Packers last season by ruling that Seattle had scored a Hail Mary touchdown as time expired.

“Remember the Ref who called TD during the Green Bay Game Monday Night??? His name is Lance Easley and he is going to Umpire for us July 7th! Don’t be surprised if a few flags are thrown,” Sherman wrote.
