I love football, and the fans that come with it. There’s no excuse for death threats over a sport. Absolutely no excuse. I don’t care if your team never wins a game. You don’t threaten a man’s family over a game played all over this country on Saturdays.
Hopefully they find the people responsible for these threats, and justice is served. Football fans can’t tolerate any of this garbage.
