    Ed Hochuli is the referee for Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals, the first time the Chargers will have seen Hochuli since he blew a call that cost them their Sept. 14 game at Denver last season.

    Head coach Norv Turner said he will engage in the usual pleasantries with Hochuli before the game.

    “He's going to officiate a game as we continue in the season,” Turner said. “He's a good referee.”

    Hochuli's mistaken call of an incomplete pass on a Jay Cutler fumble brought the wrath of Turner and many thousands of Chargers fans. The call also prompted a rule change that would allow such a play to be reviewed by replay.

    I have no ill-will towards Hochuli, he f'd up on the broncos game, but he took it like a man, he apologized (over and over), the guy's a good ref :tup:
