08:08 AM ET 09.25 | A tough week grew tougher still for the NFL's replacement officials, and Roger Goodell may feel some significant heat from Packers fans on Tuesday. Goodell's phone number was leaked about by Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, clearly frustrated after the blown call by the replacement referees during Monday night's 14-12 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Matthews tweeted it out of frustration but the tweet has been subsequently deleted. ... Packers cornerback M.D. Jennings came down, with the ball in his hands before Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate can wrap his hands around the ball. The ruling on the field was a touchdown and thus a simultaneous catch which cannot be reviewed by the officials.

Forget about the negotiations with the real refs, that crew from last night's game has to be fired. They were clearly intimidated by the Seattle crowd and gave the fans what they wanted.

The Saints are going to have their hands full on Sunday. I don't think any team wants to be the Pack's next opponent.

Like going into Lambeau at 0-3 wasn't bad enough...

Why is everyone so infatuated with Goodell? All he is, is a messenger for the owners. They're his boss, so get on your teams owner.

The owners are scumbags and RG is a scumbag that represents their interest. That is why everyone is so against him and dislike him so much. In our country we have a system in place where no one acts solely as Judge, Jury, and Executioner.......that is except RG. That kinda power is never liked in any society, RG isn't the exception. In our country were also have to a certain degree, fairness in the workplace. In the NFL everyone seems to accept the idea that the owners have all the power and they should do as they please.......so we have these lockouts all across the board in every sport!

If packer fans aren't clueless homers, they'll be more concerned that the team's play was bad enough the rest of the game to leave them in that spot at the end. It should not have come down to the last play.

The owners do have the power!!!!

I think we all recognize that!!!! But I think this cavalier attitude of acceptance is the real problem, it offers zero resistence and all these demands for change........putzs is what it amounts to....this attitude.

The head of every private concern is "Judge, Jury, and Executioner". Plainly it needs to be grasped that the NFL is a private enterprise and not Congress.
