FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - FEBRUARY 05: Commissioner of the NFL Roger Goodell speaks to members of the media during the NFL Commissioner Press Conference held at the Greater Ft.

By now, we are all aware of the mayhem that is surrounding last night’s Packers-Seahawks game. The Seahawks won a game on a last-minute heave to the end zone, where pass interference should have been called on Golden Tate, and it was pretty clear that the Seahawks did not have possession of the ball in the end zone.

Packers players, players league-wide, fans, and pretty much everyone watching the game on TV took to Twitter to vent their frustrations regarding the lackluster performance of the replacement referees. As we know by now, the league and the regular referees are at a disagreements, leading the NFL to hire these replacement refs. To be fair, these guys have been thrown in the fire, and they really are doing the best they can.

You can add Mr. Jon Erpenbach, a Wisconsin State Senator, to the list of people who are displeased about the performance of the replacement referees. But he took his feelings a bit further than most did.

Jon Erpenbach took to Twitter to release Roger Goodell’s phone number to the public, in hopes that fellow NFL fans would flood the Commissioner’s phone with their displeasure and complaints. Yes, he gave everyone the ability to flood the phone lines of the NFL commissioner because he wants to get the regular referees back. I’m sure Goodell is thrilled about that.

Then he wrote, “Let’s go to the phones!!” and proceeded to post the phone number to Goodell’s New York office.

The internet and the football world haven’t stopped spinning since last night, and for good reason. The replacement referees have been mediocre at best all season, and particularly this week. Multiple coaches have been fined for harassing the officials, and many expect Bill Belichick to join that list in the very near future.

There were multiple questionable calls in last night’s game, but the Packers still can only blame themselves for the loss. They couldn’t get going at all on offense, and their line could not protect Aaron Rodgers all night. The former MVP really failed to muster up much of an attack for the whole game.

It will be interesting to see how the league deals with this, and if Roger Goodell’s image takes a big hit. Jon Erpenbach is certainly not in the minority here. Between the replacement referee fiasco and the Saints bounty situation, Goodell is definitely on the hook in the eye of the public. Jon Vilma is filing a lawsuit against Goodell, and he is becoming less and less popular amongst the players every day.
