I hated reffing because of this...

From Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback this week:

Ten Things I Think I Think:

7. I think the nicest story I've heard in the wake of the Super Bowl came in the officials' locker room after the game. Vice president of officiating Mike Pereira entered the locker room to find field judge Greg Gautreaux crying, and they were tears of joy and relief. Seems that Gautreaux, the man who made the immediate and correct call on the touchdown catch by Santonio Holmes by seeing Holmes get both feet down in fair territory while possessing the ball as his body hit the ground, was petrified that the biggest call of his life, a call he had to make in a millisecond, might be wrong. But it wasn't. It was perfectly correct. "That's a call that will define your career,'' Pereira told Gautreaux.

I'm not saying other jobs aren't stressful but to do it with billions of people watching has to take it's toll.

I had dowzens of people watching my games when I reffed and it was difficult.  Next time you bash a ref, remember he has a family.  Bash the call not the ref.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
