You dont really need to apologize.
There's only one apology I'd like to see/read to put everything behind and move forward.
More or less I agree with Fjugin.
As a ref, and as a supporter of ETC and the 9th age, my conscience is clear that I did the right thing, and the final standings were not affected by my or any other ref's decisions, and I'd take the same decisions any day.
