Hall of Famer Beyton Manning once wanted to write him a letter of apology when he cursed a referee so badly.
Manning told the story during a broadcast with his brother Eli during the premiere of “Monday Night Football” aired simulcast on ESPN2. The Las Vegas Riders won 33-27 against the Baltimore Ravens.
“I remember once seeing a referee,” Manning recalled on the broadcast. “I knew that person. He’s a good guy. He called a bad call. I allowed him. I felt very bad. I asked for the NFL’s address after the game. I’m going to write him a letter of apology.”
Manning continued: “I will not give his address. I will lay eggs at his house or something. I am going to write him a letter of apology!” The arbitrators did not write a letter of apology.
Manning said the referee thinks he is “stupid to date” because of the call he discussed during the game against the Miami Dolphins.
