After Monday night’s controversial ending in Seattle,
Wisconsin state senator and apparent Green Bay Packers diehard Jon Erpenbach
was so disgusted by the outcome that he decided to give fans a chance to reach the
commissioner directly.

Erpenbach tweeted Goodell’s office phone number multiple
times late Monday and urged angry fans to give him a call with their

“Let’s go to the phones!! Roger Goodell,” Erpenbach
tweeted just after the game’s conclusion, followed by Goodell’s office number.
He added another tweet a few minutes later, saying, “You can leave a message
for nfl commish roger goodell at” again with the number to follow.

The controversy surrounding the replacement officials
finally came to a head in the Seahawks’ 14-12 win over the Packers on Monday
night. A Hail Mary pass from quarterback Russell Wilson, which was ruled a
touchdown, nearly blew up the Internet as athletes, celebrities and football
fans erupted in rage over the missed call,
which on second look should have been ruled an interception.

The NFL released a statement supporting the call Tuesday
afternoon and made sure to say,
“The result of the game is final.”

So, the outcome of the game isn’t going to be changed, but
now fans at least have their chance to place some complaints with the commissioner
himself about the underqualified officials. And apparently there were a lot, as SportsCenter reported Tuesday afternoon that the NFL offices received more than 70,000 voicemails overnight.

Check out the tweets from Erpenbach below.
