“I remember one time I just laid into a referee,” Manning recalled on the broadcast. “I knew the guy. He was a good guy. He called the worst holding call. I let him have it. I felt so bad I asked the NFL for his address after the game. I was going to write him an apology letter.”

Manning continued: “They wouldn’t give me his address, as if I was going to go and like, egg his house or something. I was like, ‘I’m just going to write him an apology letter!’ Nobody writes the referees an apology letter.”

Manning said that the referee thinks he’s a “jerk to this day” because of the holding call that he disputed during a game against the Miami Dolphins.
