The Hundred Thirty-First Greatest Panel in the History of Comics

I think it's the sentence construction that's confusing me this time around. 'Really Was Murdered' suggests that rather than idle threats ("I'm gonna kill that ump!") someone actually killed the man. 'Was Reaaly Murdered' just brings to mind a man being killed an especially significant amount.

Or maybe, no one suspected murder. Like the umpire died, but SHOCK! he was actually MURDERED!

I immediately thought of a number of umpires, all having disappeared and faked their violent deaths. But only one of them was REALLY the victim of a crime. Duduun!
