Twitter Lynch Mob: Let’s kill NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell; Update: More death wishes after NFL upholds ruling

NFL fans have spent much of the night criticizing and mocking NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who is responsible for bringing in replacement referees. Alas, some Twitter users are taking it too far:

The Mob is well aware that Goodell is getting death threats. Some, following the lead of Wisconsin State Senator Jon Erpenbach are posting his phone number:

Some Twitter users are also threatening the replacement refs:

Note the Twitter Rules:

Violence and Threats: You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others.

Update:

The NFL announced it will not overturn the ruling.

Naturally, that prompted more death wishes for Goodell:
