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:
GOODELL MUST DIE.

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:
