Ed Hochuli – The Facts December 25, 2005

Posted by TimTheFoolMan in Football.

Having given my oldest son a “What Would Ed Hochuli Do?” t-shirt for Christmas, it seems that the season is right for commemorating all of the great deads of the man. In his day job, Mr. Hochuli is a lawyer with the law firm of Jones, Skelton and Hochuli. However, on weekends and Monday nights, Ed Hochuli is the NFL’s most muscular referee. Here are a few “fun facts” about Mr. Hochuli:

P.S. The initial posting date of this entry was Mr. Hochuli’s 55th birthday.

P.P.S. Welcome to those of you searching for information surrounding the controversial call late in the 9/14/08 game between the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Brocos. While virtually everyone agrees that Mr. Hochuli blew the call, the current rules of the NFL allowed the replay to alter the spot of the ball  (ruling the play a “Fumble” and overturning the on-field call of “Incomplete Pass”), but do not allow for a change of possession, since the inadvertent whistle stopped the play immediately. Because of the sequence of events revealed by reviewing the tape (Denver’s fumble, Hochuli’s whistle, and then San Diego’s recovery), to have awarded the ball to San Diego would have required a rule change, and not just a reinterpretation of existing rules.

Chuck Norris could not fight Ed Hochuli. It would be unfair.
For Chuck Norris.

[…] Tonight, I pulled out the phrases that hae been used for the past week or two, and noticed some interesting patterns, and some very interesting oddballs. Ed Hochuli is King, but My Mother-in-Law is Queen If there is one blog entry that stands head, shoulders, and biceps above any other, it’s “Ed Hochuli – The Facts,” which was a spoof of a similar page about Chuck Norris. There are all sorts of phrases that people have used to hit that page, ranging from references to Mr. Hochuli’s biceps, his job as an attorney, or the t-shirt that I bought my son. […]

Ed Hochuli is the gayest ref ever. His preformance was terrible in the Buf. VS. SDG game. because of him the bills lost

4. Tim - December 4, 2006

David, I’m not sure that I ever articulated his sexual preferences. I didn’t catch his performance in that game, but based on what I’ve seen from the Bills this season, they need to look at someone other than Hochuli to blame for their performance. – Tim

Simply the BEST REF in the NFL! Where was he during the PATRIOTS / COLTS AFC Championship (21 Jan. 2007) where there were (4) VERY (VERY) BAD (HORRIFIC) calls against the PATRIOTS for MINOR / TICKY, TACKY calls and (2) FLAGRANT personal fouls (Ruffing the Passer (not!), and Pass Interference on HOBBS against Marvin Harrison in the End Zone when Harrison wasn’t even TOUCHED!

I’ve never seen a game SO BAD of officiating it made me want to VOMIT!

David I dare you to go up to him and call him the “gayest ref ever.”

Ed Hochuli walks on water – because if the water doesn’t cooperate he;ll penalize it for pass interference.

One question Bill. Did someone bet every patriot fan that they couldn’t drop the patriots into every conversation?

14. Why Kobe wouldn’t save U.S. Soccer | The Legend, The Myth, The Manderson - August 11, 2010

[…] It all starts with muscle. Size and strength. Natural resources our non-soccer athletes have in abundance. From Adrian Peterson’s piston legs to Dwight Howard’s sculpted chest, we are ripped without peer and getting buffer all the time. Even some of our referees are jacked (I’m looking at you, Ed Hochuli). […]
