Really? Ernie has a statue in tribute to him in front of our stadium. He's in the Reds' HoF. There's not a Reds fan worth his/her weight who doesn't know who Ernie was. Seems to me that Ernie holds a pretty high place in Reds history. Curious...maybe he was talking about his place in baseball history.
I think you may be right, because, as you say it, any Reds fan knows that Ernie ranks up there with JB. I think he is referring to the bad rap that Lombardi gets for that one play.
