bullheaded (adj.)

BOOL hed id

blindly stubborn

The proper education of an umpire is directed toward the development of three capacities — sharp sight, instant decision, and resolution enough to make the decision stick. Resolute, of course, does not mean bullheaded. A good umpire is not to be intimidated, not even by the bleachers spilling onto the field, roaring; yet if they pull the rule book on him, he has humility enough to reverse a wrong decision gracefully.
Gerald W. Johnson     January 1964
