‘Fail Mary’ official fighting depression

Former NFL replacement official Lance Easley says he continues to struggle with illnesses — battling depression and post-traumatic stress disorder — since making the infamous “Fail Mary” call in 2012.

The 55-year-old Easley, in a series of interviews with Yahoo! Sports, said he has been plagued by panic attacks, depression and even suicidal thoughts over the past year.

Do we really want to be a society that drives someone to suffer the same symptoms as a soldier returning from war, over a questionable call in a football game? Really??
