Ref Easley who officiated the Packers game said he received dozens of death threats. Doesn't want to officiate at any level anymore.

Didn't Golden get death threats too?

The NFL refs should be thanking him if they really think the call was that bad, because that was the impetus for them getting their way in their negotiations, but they are all bastards that won't stand up for a "scab" no matter what. That just shows what a-holes all of the Hochulis and Mike Careys of the world are. It would seem that they are the big names and could say "Lay off and cut the man some slack. No matter what, everybody makes mistakes and people disagree on calls all the time."
But they have NOT and that just shows me what a bunch of P's of S the NFL refs are. They are going to sit back and let that man take the bullets and back stabbings and death threats because they are selfish, greedy, pricks.
