Hochuli’s threat ends NFL referee lockout
- Updated: October 1, 2012
As the world witnessed Seattle Seahawks receiver Golden Tate catch the Green Bay defender for a game winning touchdown everyone assumed that would be the defining moment in ending the NFL referee lockout; however, that was not the case. Reports have surfaced that with the recent advertisement and release of the Avengers on DVD, that NFL referee/gym rat Ed Hochuli decided to do his own version of the Hulk smash…..the Hoch smash! Hochuli, upset that the replacement referees were portraying the zebra stripes in a negative light, confronted NFL commissioner Roger Goodell with two possible offers, a new 8-year deal with an increase in pay through 2019, along with a lifetime supply of Whey Protein mix and testosterone boosters, or a Hoch smash to the face. Fearing a handshake agreement with Hochuli might end his check-writing days to himself, Goodell verbally agreed to Hochuli’s terms until the details of the deal could be put on paper and signed.
On a side note: There are rumors that Ed Hochuli could be in the Expendables 3. Stay tuned….
