WAUWATOSA—The call from Monday night’s game is prompting some Packers fans to call for an NFL boycott. Patti Wetzel came up with the idea and has been using social media to spread the word.
"Next Thursday through Monday we don't anyone watching the NFL, we don't want anyone going to the games," Wetzel said.
Wetzel and others turned to Facebook, creating an event they hope will catch on across the country.
"This is not just disgruntled Packer fans or disgruntled people in Wisconsin,” she said. “This is all over the country because everyone has been on the receiving end of these bad calls and bad officiating."
Wetzel hopes the boycott message spreads from the Wisconsin restaurant where she works to NFL fans everywhere, who just like her, have had enough.
