No excuses, though. Richard has to improve on his stamina and has to learn to block out things that go against him like bad line calls....
And he's my favortie umpire too
Exactly. Two main things he has to focus on are his stamina and blocking out bad calls (along with improving his return game).

Well said and I couldn't agree more with your entire post.
I just hope that Richard's stomatch/abs is okay and that it was only just cramps. I don't want to see him injured again.
Get Well Soon, Richard!
